PlayStation is looking for a software developer to work on “new emulators” for games.
PlayStation is hiring? PlayStation is now searching for candidates to fill the position of software development engineer in order to “repair errors, add new features, and create new emulators” for the PS4 and PS5 Classics collection.
According to a recent story published by PSU, the company Sony is apparently in the process of acquiring software development skills via the use of the social networking site LinkedIn. In order to support the newly relaunched ‘Classics’ for PS4 and PS5, an opportunity to join PlayStation’s ‘Tools and Technology team’ will be made available to the successful applicant if they meet the requirements for the position.
Emulation makes it possible to play games that were first produced for older versions of the PlayStation system. In addition to that, the advertisement for the position includes the following information. Your key tasks as a PlayStation Classics engineer would involve:
- the elimination of bugs,
- the creation of new emulators,
- and tight cooperation with a broad variety of other engineers, producers, and quality control teams.
Candidates are required to have a minimum of ten years of experience working with the programming languages C and C++ in addition to having experience designing cross-platform programs for games consoles and desktop PCs. This is something that ought not to come as much of a surprise to anyone that this position is a senior one inside the company.
So, What Can We Anticipate?
In the not-too-distant future, it is feasible that PlayStation may add other games to the PlayStation Plus Premium category. This tier, which is presently being lambasted by a significant number of players for being lackluster in its current version, is most certainly going to be improved upon by PlayStation in the near future.
If PlayStation were to increase the number of employees working on the retro game collection, the firm would be able to achieve the target that it has set for itself and would be able to do it sooner.
What’s Next, Exactly?
Recently, it was brought to our attention that PlayStation has applied for a new patent in connection with the classics collection. Within the parameters of this patent, PlayStation makes reference to a broad variety of PlayStation accessories that have been made available to customers in the past. Among the things that are exhibited are a variety of commodities, some of which are:
- the DualShock 2 controllers,
- the PlayStation Move controllers,
- the PSP Go, and a few more items.
Even though there has not been any official confirmation of this as of yet, there is a rumor going about that additional old PlayStation titles may be added to the catalog of the subscription service as a consequence of this new patent. This would be a positive development for subscribers.
