    Put simply, no, it isn’t possible.

    MAME is only designed to emulate old arcade game hardware, not current or recent gaming consoles. Even then, emulator software isn’t very reliable.

    If you want to play games from any of these listed systems, you’re going to want to play them on the actual consoles.
