Play! PS2 Emulator Running on the Nintendo Switch

Play! PS2 Emulator Running on the Nintendo Switch

uyjulian has published a video about his successful attempt to compile Play! which is a very early work-in-progress Sony Playstation 2 video gaming console emulator under L4T Ubuntu running on the Nintendo Switch. While this is a cool concept, we're far from being able to actually play PS2 games on the Switch at any sort of decent speed.

It is reported that Play! previously wouldn't build on aarch64 Linux platforms due to a conflict with aarch64 qt and glew and that running this on Nintendo Switch is a positive side effect of fixing that. If you'd like to install it yourself, here it the CLI command.
