Sony May Be Adding PS2 Backwards Compatibility to PS4

Via PSN Classics, most likely.

Ahead of Sony’s TGS conference tomorrow, a new report by Eurogamer gives us that much more reason to be excited about just what Sony might have in store for all of us (beyond Persona 5, of course)- according to Gematsu, The Pan European Game Information Board (PEGI, which is the European equivalent of the ESRB) has rated PlayStation 2 classics Ape Escape 2, Dark Cloud 2 (Dark Chronicle in Europe), and Twisted Metal: Black for PlayStation 4, implying that these games are being re-released for Sony’s newest system.

Considering that they are all from three different franchises, and that, though they each have cult followings, none of them was exactly a massive seller, it makes sense that this re-release will happen via the PSN Store’s PS Classics section. PS Classics are already sold on PSP, PS3, and PS Vita; the PS4 is the only Sony system not offering some form of backwards compatibility with PS1 and PS2 games, and that may likely change at Sony’s TGS show tomorrow, where this will probably be one of the things being announced.

    Sony fans praised the idea of paying to play PS3 game they already own.
    So are sure to praise this again, even when the PSN is down as well.
    Nothing but praise.

      the sonnyan fannys never fail to praise.. even when the online gaming was put behind the paywall. then the excuse was sony will improve the psn so it will be worth it… 2 years later and the psn is even worse than it was on the ps3… and the sonnyan fannys is still praising.

    Ps2 backwards compatibility will be good but won’t Sony need permission from publishers to go fully compatible like MS. Whatever the case it would be nice to see Sony step up their game to ensure real competition that benefits gamers.

      I would assume so. Unless it was in the original contracts. Which would probably be unlikely

    This is NOT backwards compatibility you freaking idiots. It’s just another wave of bs on PSNow. You still need to buy it twice. You guys are clowns. Get rek’d.
