Dante’s Inferno – one of the more original hack’n’slashes of the last decade – is not a last-genconsole exclusive anymore. 10 years after its debut, the team responsible for RPCS3 – and open-source PS3 emulator – made the game fully playable on PC. In 4K. And 60FPS. It’s also devoid of any physics-related glitches or stuttering or other little technical nightmares to ruin your experience. It’s quite an achievement, and it looks gorgeous. See for yourself:
Before you ask, no, you don’t need a high-end, sold-my-soul-to-the-devil-to-buy-it PC to run it. The creators stress that “even mid-range CPU's can hit 60FPS!”, and while “mid-range” doesn’t sound like anything specific, it can be assumed that a 4-core Haswell CPU should do the job just fine.
It took the RPCS3 team almost 3 years to make the “PC version” of Dante’s Inferno happen, so maybe you could give it a shot, eh? Well, before you do, there’s a twist – you still kind of need both the game and the PlayStation3 console to transfer the files to your PC.
But isn’t this a small price to pay for that silky smooth 4K experience?
