To quote: Backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony's streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the "gameplay over IP" cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony's latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.

While Sony effectively phased out hardware emulation of previous platforms during the early stages of the PS3 era, it has worked consistently on opening up the PlayStation back catalogue to publishers via software emulation and PSN downloads.

Found the mistake in SPU Emu... -.- FAIL! sf* commands do rb-ra I did ra-rb -.- works perfectly now.

The sp somehow land in code section and overrides destroys code. so i don't update the code while the ls changes. This does the trick hotfix.

New spu emu soon dump function calls and channel access and so on.

SPU Emu v0.9: fixed sf* instructions and bugfixes and callstack functions. Dumps all branches now files get big ^^.

New spu emu soon dump function calls and channel access and so on.. btw no spu stuff just optimised code

Crypto function instructions implemented, aim_spu_module runs fine (v0.8).

I still got a problem with one instruction, the problem is idk what instruction, but aim decrypts the eid0 section fine with spu emu (v0.8.1).
