Sony confirms: PS2 Emulation coming to PS4

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

I really hope this emulation enables playing PS2 discs. Now we'll see certain PS2 game prices being driven up on eBay.

This isn't PS3 or 360

I'm mostly kidding, but yea, it's another gen back.  Does anyone know if the games will be upscaled, or just exactly as they were?



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

“We are working on utilizing PS2 emulation technology to bring PS2 games forward to the current generation,”

“We have nothing further to comment at this point in time.”

Everything else are rumors and conjecture.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

This is PERFECT!!! I will finally have the opportunity to play Silent Hill 2 again (enhanced.) It's the ONLY game I have kept the ps2 for and the only game on ps2 I still own. I will NEVER get rid of this masterpiece.

Also, FFVII, FFVIII and FFIX on ps1. Would never sell those off either.
Chrono Cross, Vagrant Story, Parasite Eve - all games I still have.



I figured people would already know by now, but pretty much any PS3 can play PS2 games, not just the old launch phats, the emulator sony includes with PS2 classics is capable of running just about any game.

So far we only have the Star Wars games to judge this by and it looks like they're upscaled and run at 60fps.

Quite nice. Wonder if we'll be able to play SOTC on PS4 at a better framerate than the PS3 remaster
