This comes proceeding his demo video showcasing Running Steam on PS4 Linux alongside How to Install Steam (Not SteamOS) on PS4 Linux, and according to @zecoxao on Twitter thanks also go out to PS4 scene devs including PSXDev, Frangar, masterzorag and flat_z for helping to make this RetroArch Unofficial PS4 Port possible. 🥰

:idea: xforce505 reminds us to add the menu icons via FTP to the following location: /data/retroarch/assets/xmb/(place them in here) and he Tweeted that you can also use the Online Updater update options to do so.

Below are further details on the PS4 RetroArch Port (Unofficial) from OsirisX, to quote:

Notes:

1. Games can either be loaded from hdd or usb.
2. The RetroArch system folder is located in /data/retroarch/system. Any necessary bios files need to be placed there.
3. There is a small bug where sometimes games won't load after closing it. If this happens, try re-loading the core and load the game again.
4. N64 emulator seems to run fastest with rice gfx plugin.

Source will be pushed to main branch eventually but will be slow to ensure nothing breaks!
