Windows Emulation software Software: The comprehensive list

Emulators to run your old software on your PC. Emulators to run game consoles. Emulators to run different devices on your machine. Here is what we offer you here. Emulators for all needs Emulators perform a very special function: they replace hardware with software via emulation. For example, the operating system of a machine, computer or Console, will not draw from the resources of its own components, but will draw from the elements at its disposal, via a program that will somehow "deceive" it. It is theoretically possible to emulate a little bit of everything and anything, especially on modern machines, as long as the restrictions are not material. For example, it is difficult to emulate some controllers, gyroscopes... For several years, console emulators have taken over the rest. The retrogaming phenomenon is such that the latest consoles are already being emulated, with several degrees of success, whether portable or fixed. Switch, Playstation, XBox, 3DS... Nothing seems to scare developers who are succeeding more and more quickly in offering functional programs.
