News PS4 Emulator for Linux Now Plays Hundreds of Games

That last part’s especially tricky, since you’ll probably need to mod your own PS4 to get your hands on the data you need. (Which, of course, comes with the usual legal gray areas.)
This is actually not a legal gray area. The BLEEM case explicitly made backing up BIOS/Firmware files legal, as does the DMCA (so long as you don't need to break any encryption to do so).

But you have to break console BIOS/Firmware files legal encryption to make work

I think Michelle is referring to the game files. You can't get those without breaking DRM.

Sony's games have LONG been unencrypted; you can pop a PS2/PS3 disk in a drive that can read them and run right off the drive if you want to. Heck, even Nintendo's stuff is readable so long as you have a mini-dvd drive that can read their disk format natively.
