In an e-mail sent to WIRED, Sony has confirmed that PlayStation 2 emulation is coming to the PlayStation 4.
“We are working on utilizing PS2 emulation technology to bring PS2 games forward to the current generation,” a Sony representative told WIRED via email. “We have nothing further to comment at this point in time.”
The recently released Star Wars: Battlefront PlayStation 4 bundle already seems to contain the first three games that work with this PlayStation 2 emulation method. According to Digital Foundry, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter seem to run on a new emulation software.
Unfortunately, it looks like we'll have to wait to see what Sony's actual plans for PlayStation 2 emulation on the PlayStation 4 are. Will you be able to use a PlayStation 2 disc or will you have to repurchase a digital copy? Will the selection of PlayStation 2 classics currently available on the PlayStation Store work?
The PlayStation 2 is Sony's most successful console and boasts a wide range of video game classics such as Shadow of the Colossus, Final Fantasy X, and Metal Gear Solid 3. What classic PlayStation 2 games would you like to see playable on the PlayStation 4?
