Recently, i saw that Ubisoft will be releasing Assassin’s Creed 5 Unity only for consoles. It upset me a lot since I only have a PC and it the best platform for gaming. Is there a way to run out anyway, like wine does for games on Linux?

    There are emulators for several consoles out there, but they rarely work well with the latest consoles. Examples: Dolphin (Wii emulator), PCSX2 (Playstation 2) , zsnes (SuperNintendo) etc

  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassin%27s_Creed_Unity : "it would also see a release on Windows" Jul 9, 2014 at 14:20
  • The article dates back from July. From a French site, they say approximately that unity n will be released exclusively for last generation consoles.

    I'm fairly certain they just meant that Unity won't be released for 360 or PS3. As for your question: To properly emulate (meaning "accurately" and "with acceptable speed") a machine, you need a host that is at least 20 times as powerful as the client. Even the most powerful PCs of 2013 have difficulties emulating PS2/Xbox/NGC/Wii games at full speed. Now imagine emulating the PS3/360, let alone their successors.
