Sony confirms: PS2 Emulation coming to PS4

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony confirms: PS2 Emulation coming to PS4

In case no one knew, there is a really good emulator for PS2 called: PCSX2 for PC.

Emulator used is rumored to use PCSX2, or at least some of it, for the PS4. Legally of course. Someone who worked on PCSX2 is now working for Sony, so yeah.

Yeah I agree.  That PS2 emulator is pretty sweet.  They have Shadow of Collosus and other games in 1080p@60fps.

Gen 3 and beyond could only play psn classics.

PS3 has been able to play PS1 discs since launch, still can. Can the Slim not?


Yes it can. Every PS3 models can play PS1 discs.

I understand that, but why is it then released before PSX, and why are Digital Foundry allowed to make a report on it?

Digital Foundry are just doing guesswork based on the release of the PS2 republished games that came with starwars battlefront.

So my question remains: Why do this before PSX?

Yeah, even if someone who worked on PCSX2 is working for Sony, why would Sony use PCSX2 or part of it when they have all the documentation of the PS2, while the people woking on PCSX2 have to do it by reverse engineering and tricks.

Keeping my mouth shut.

Nobody expects otherwise.


OT: I wonder if they allow disc-based emulation on the PS4 for PS2 or if you have to rebuy games you already own.

I'm really hoping it's the former.  If not, I will continue using PCSX2.  I don't buy games I already own.



well that's good news for some people. I'm happy for 'em.

I myself have FF7 Dirge of Cerberus, and FF12 still.
