Vita3K is an open-source PlayStation Vita emulator for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android. It can run many games from the PS Vita library with minor issues, with a massive compatibility boost from June 2022.
Vita3K's initial codebase was pushed to GitHub by petmac on January 28, 2018. Between January and April, Vita3K was only able to run a few homebrew games and applications, but not commercial games. On May 4, 2018, Gal*Gun: Double Peace (Vita port) was the first commercial game to show graphics on this emulator. As of August 2023, 1124 games are playable. In the 3 years Progress Report, it was mentioned that further progress reports were unlikely. However, current progress and changes can be tracked in both their Discord room and GitHub repository.
In August 2022, the Vulkan API was implemented.
In February 2023, the Android version was released.
