Confirmation emerges after reports of emulation software already present on PS4.
Wondering when you’ll be able to play your favourite PlayStation 2 games on your PS4? Sony has finally offered an update on the possibility of the same and it’s fairly positive.
Speaking to Wired, a representative said that, “We are working on utilizing PS2 emulation technology to bring PS2 games forward to the current generation. We have nothing further to comment at this point in time.”
This came after a report by Digital Foundry, which examined the Star Wars PS2 titles that shipped with the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 bundle and confirmed them to be running on proprietary emulation software as opposed to being simple ports. It was manifested in the form of an upscaled resolution with black bars allowing for 1080p resolution output on the PS4.
Of course there’s no timeline for the PS2 emulator or how it will exactly work so stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
