Back in January this year, some folks found a way to run Linux on a PlayStation 4. A team called “fail0verflow” was able to find exploits in the console’s firmware, enabling them to make changes to the kernel. A YouTube user, who goes by the name of OsirisX, took it a step further and uploaded a video of the Steam client running on a PS4 with Arch Linux. The video isn’t of great quality, and seems to have been uploaded a month ago but it only just came to light via Reddit and is interesting nonetheless so check it out!
Reddit user Derf_Jagged reports that most games run at playable framerates on low/medium settings and apparently, fail0verflow is currently working on making SteamOS run on the console but only time will tell how successful they are.
