Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS2 discs and digital classics not compatible on PS4 through emulator

So there you have it. Sony is as greedy as Microsoft. I really can't believe people would've thought otherwise... and unless the XONE starts closing the damn gap, we won't be seeing free PS2 emulation...

Stupid console wars...

    There was ever a doubt that Sony wasn't just as greedy as MS? I don't think so. All big companies are greedy.





    When I read this I felt like stabbing my penis with a tomato knife.



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

    Did they? Also they are explaining how they make additional money with a software emulator for old games which is new to the industry. Never doubt the innovation potential from Sony.

    PS2, PS3 were full BC despite having a massing lead for Sony. Meanwhile last gen was one of the shittiest gens ever paving the way for DLC, Microtransaction etc.
    I can play my PS2 games on PS2 and Xbox 360 games on 360. Its not as a big deal for me to switch consoles

    Neither for me, but this is still the sort of stuff that misleads gamers...

      Absolutely no, they made  different emulators for the PS3 to play some PS2 games: (firmware is written when it first appeared on ps3):

      ps2_emu.self (1.02++) ps2_gxemu.self (1.50++) ps2_softemu.self (1.90++) 1.90-1.94 (11065), 2.00-2.10 (11830), 3.15 (12840), 3.41-3.65 (13474), 3.66-3.70 (15435), 3.72-4.21 (15529) (Changes: -2.50] [2.52-2.60] [2.70] [2.80] [3.00-3.65] [3.66-3.70] [3.74]) ps2_netemu.self (3.70++)
      there are a bunch of them in the PS3 internal HDD, differences based of compatibility of emulators with different games, on different hardwares on the ps3 (cecha has both ps2 cpu and gpu, cechc (pal) only has ps2 gpu, two different emulators for those consoles) "non HW BC consoles" cannot use the first two emulators (my memory of this is vanishing) source: http://www.ps3devwiki.com/ps3/Emulation NOTE that the ps2_netemu.self only works with "ps2 classics format", do you know what is it? It's a ps2 disc ISO image that has been encrypted in a proprietary format, the file will be converted in "ISO.BIN.ENC" NO REWORK IN ANY GAME, they made the emulator, NOT THE GAMES, games are NOT PORTS. Sony really likes that the users never get to know anything (like any console manifacturer out there....), so they can trick them and make a lot of money, evidence is also that I converted Xenosaga episode 3 disc 1 and 2 in that format and even if it is not present on the PS store (so not officially compatibile) it works very well (results vary by game of course) I am not a developer, I haven't ported a ps2 games to ps3, just followed a guide for noobs to play my ps2 game in my ps3 SLIM (CFW) because 60GB ps3 died. THE EMULATORS ARE MADE BY SONY ITSELF.
      Of course when there was a save corruption problem in persona 3 fes ps2 classic they called atlus, that made a very fast and probably super easy fix, so people who download
      the game after that, won't have the problem (or Sony wrote some more lines of code in the emu for that specific fix.)
      I really hope this helps, because the truth must be told to everyone.
      Definitely they did a much better job with the PS Vita, that supports psp games and ps1 games, that don't need to be bought again (only if you have them on ps store)
      much better console for me.
      I you want to play Socom 2, 3 or the other onle online, just dust-off your ps2 and come to play with us using Xlink Kai FREE program for LAN tunnelling (Do you really expect a socom 2 "remaster" will allow you to play multiplayer? just like uncharted 2 and 3 ports right?
      (this was written only because I saw some interest in socom 2 in this thread)

      ?????

       

      Did you quote the wrong person? I wasnt talking about emulators or emulation code for the PS3 o.O

      we are talking about emulators, ps2 classics are not ports like you assumed (btw, what do you mean by "straight" ports?)

      ps: I'm sorry for the lenght of my response and for the delay, good gaming



      Persona 5 on PS3, I won't need next gen!
