Game emulators are around for an extended time. They are typically designed to permit retro games not being made to be played on other platforms. one of the more popular emulators available today is DuckStation, and it emulates PS1 games on other platforms. The emulator is meant to offer users playability, speed and be maintainable for the future.
DuckStation has now been ported for operation on the current-generation Xbox Series X and S game consoles. When run on the Xbox consoles, DuckStation can harness the extra power of the consoles to upscale classic games by an element of up to 16 times. The upscaling means significantly higher resolution than anyone who played the games on their original consoles will remember.
The video, which may be seen below, has turned up online, showing DuckStation running on the new Xbox console at native 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. When the emulator is run on the new Xbox consoles, players even can enable True Color Rendering.
Enabling that feature turns off the dithering effect used for video games on the first PlayStation console. Users also can enable Texture Filtering, which smooths out textures on 3D objects once they are enlarged. Xbox gamers even have the power to repair texture warping, which are some things that commonly happens with original PlayStation games.
Users are warned that enabling a number of those features would require significant processing power from the console. However, the processor power required doesn’t seem to strain the Xbox Series S seen within the video above. It’s worth noting that running original PlayStation games at 60 frames per second can cause problems for a few titles. Thankfully, games are often run at their original frame rate.
