Some gamers may become nostalgic over Pokémon Emerald for the Game Boy Advance. Pokémon is near and dear to the hearts of many, and I’m sure some wish to revisit Emerald to take a look back at their gaming past. One team of hackers has done just that, but in a very unconventional way.

By importing Linux to a PlayStation 4, Fail0verflow has used the operating system to demonstrate the emulation of
Pokémon Emerald at the 32nd Chaos Communication Congress. That’s right: they played a classic Pokémon game on a PS4. This is quite a step forward in the hacking niche of the gaming world; who knows what Fail0verflow will achieve next?

Are you surprised that
Pokémon has made its way to the PS4? Tell us in the comments below.

Darrin W. Harr II
Darrin W. Harr II started gaming at an early age. Even though he was born in one of the later generations of consoles, he started from the very beginning on his grandparents' NES. Playing games such as Wrecking Crew, Super Mario Bros., and Duck Hunt, Darrin spent countless hours of his childhood filled with the entertainment and joy these games brought him. In his later years, he took a big step up and started to familiarize himself with his uncle's Nintendo DS. It was then when he became obsessed with one of the best Game Boy titles of all time, Astro Boy: Omega Factor. After becoming stuck and very frustrated with the game, he pulled out a game cartridge from his uncle's DS bag. As Darrin read the inscription on the cartridge, clouds parted and sunlight shown through the window: the game was titled, "The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass." Darrin played this game to his heart's content, until one day, his grandmother bought him Spirit Tracks, the sequel to Phantom Hourglass. This was the first Zelda title that Darrin actually finished, and the Zelda title that transformed him into a member of the Zelda fanbase. It was then when he decided to play more Zelda games, such as Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword. In 2013, Darrin became fascinated with a website know as Zelda Informer. Reading their news coverage and in-depth editorials, Zelda Informer helped Darrin to realize that The Legend of Zelda series contains a vast amount of interesting lore. He needed to learn more. After reading numerous Zelda wiki articles and Zelda Informer editorials, Darrin eventually applied to the website, and was accepted around New Year 2015. He later joined Gamnesia in November 2015. Also, yes, Darrin wrote this in the third-person. Twitter: @realDern
