Fan Favorite PS2 Games Launching on PS4 Tomorrow

Forums - Sony Discussion - Fan Favorite PS2 Games Launching on PS4 Tomorrow

Hmm I think the pricing seems fair. I mean PSOne classics are $5.99, and $9.99 for the iconic games. So PS2 being $9.99/14.99 seems right. Correct me if I'm wrong but Nintendo charges more on the eShop for N64 games compared to Sony with PSOne games.

Perhaps the best pricing model to net more digital revenue would be pricing all games $5.99 for PSOne classics and $9.99 for all PS2 classics.

And make PSP emulation possible as well! PS4 and PS3 should run PSP games too, priced at $8.99 for all software. It would only push more digital sales by giving the software access to two more platforms.

However, they should give access to the games for people who have already bought them.

Not sure how the emulator works, but I think it should be possible to just enable the PS4 to play PS2 discs as well. My guess is the currently released games were tweaked to be able to run, so not every game is currently compatible/run-able.

Okay, now I want an update to PS4 firmware so I can organize my games/tiles into labeled folders, you know like Wii U. I'll have a folder for PS4 games, another for PS2, one for PS1, one for PSP ;) , one for apps, another for demos...etc.

I think the prices are fine considering that they are improved versions. However, they could consider frequently discounting them for PS+ members. They could also think about giving away a PS2 game to PS+ members every now and then as part of the PS+ subscription.

Anyway, great addition to an already good system. Obviously to me the prices are fine, $10/$15 whatever, the both fall into "cost next to nothing" category to me, but I can understand some people being a bit upset if the classics they bought on PS3 don't transfer over.



They need to release battlefont 2 lol.



Well I guess, I will have to wait for Rogue Galaxy to go on sale at some point. No way I'm spending $15 on an old game that is digital only.

$10 I can live with.



I think they should be no more than $10.
However, I do understand that they had to do some work on each game, with full trophy support and such. But still.

Aren't those prices pretty steep and isn't there any way for those who've already bought those games to get them for free?


If you bought gta 5 or metro 2033 on ps3 you didn't get it for free on ps4. 

If you bought crash bandicoot or spyro on ps1 you didn't get it free on ps3.

I know, and that's cheap of the publishers as well. If the big three are serious at establishing digital as the future going forward, the need to seriously rethink their pricing strategy. The way they are treating it now is mostly a joke honestly, ripping of fans every chance they get.

Not really.  each console was always so different.  Ps4 being on the x86 architecture means in future they've no excuse be it PS5/6 but now they do.  

 

This is ground zero.  if their plan is all current purchases will work on the PS5 and onwards it's fine. 

 

Sony need to make money.  They're not a charity.  People like me are happy to pay for these.  if you don't want them dont get them.  Like is buying San andreas not worth it for $15? Of course it is,  that's the price of 3 pints I'd drink at a bar in an hour or a chicken supreme I'd buy in a restaurant.  

 

$15 is nothing. 



No way at those prices. My absolute top price would be $10. $15 for very early PS2 launch title. That's a joke.



Almost a theft

Disc based BC along with digital option would be 4ThePlayers

Instead, Sony is going ballsdeep 4TheProfits

And the pricing......Sony is Sony again

Kebabs have a unique attribute compared to other consumables. To unlock this effect you need to wolf down a big ass kebab really fast, like under 10 minutes or so and wait for the effect to kick in. If done correctly your movements should feel unbelievably heavy to the point where you literally cannot move at all.
