Bloober Team’s Rafał Basaj discusses the personal appeal of PS2 emulation.
PlayStation 2 emulation is a bit of an interesting issue these days. On the one hand, it allows PS4 players the chance to experience older titles in a new light. On the other hand, it’s not free and we’ll see the majority of games arriving later.
GamingBolt spoke to Bloober Team’s Rafał Basaj, who created the upcoming Layers of Fear, about the same and asked if PS2 emulation holds any value in these circumstances. Basaj said, “To be honest, I actually don’t care about it that much. I have never sold a console after its time, and I come back to my GameCube quite regularly. It’s just not a selling feature for me.”
As such, backwards compatibility on the Xbox One and PlayStation Now, which brings PS3 games to the PS4 via cloud streaming, haven’t really provided any solid evidence of older games being system sellers. Regardless, what are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments.
