If you are a fan of big pixels, then you are in for a surprise from Sony. The company has been working on a fully functional PS2 emulator for PS4 in secret. For now you can only play the classic PlayStation 2 Star Wars game in Play Station 4. But the company stated to Wired that they are working on to bring more PS2 games to PS4.
You can purchase the new Star Wars Battlefront bundle that you can get with a PlayStation 4, the bundle includes EA’s new Star Wars game and a bunch of old Star Wars games like Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, and Super Star Wars.
Eurogamer played these games and was prized with a game changer. These games were not updated for PS4, but you can play the game as they run using a PlayStation emulator.
You may find some of PS2’s classic iconography which includes the start and select buttons, virtual memory storage and the PS2 logo when you boot these games. But there is also an educated guess that they will not look good on a big television.
You may be thinking about Sony’s plan about other games, as are we but for now we are clueless about Sony’s plan. The company may sell old games in its online stores or they could form some sort of subscription service which gives you access to the storage of classic PS2 games. This is where you may find games like GTA III, San Andreas, Vice City, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, God OF War 1 and 2, Final Fantasy X, Jak & Dexter, Ratchet & Clank and many more. After all the Play Station 2 is the best selling console of all time.
Many consumers would prefer a firmware update which lets you add this emulator for free of charge, but if you still own your old PS2 discs, we do not see any reason why the new emulator would not work. We think you will be able to enjoy these games just fine.
Just the previous week Microsoft included the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility feature for Xbox One. Many gamers like the Microsoft’s E3 announcement as they will be able to play the old Xbox 360 games free of charge.
Although Microsoft has not fully developed the patch for each and every Xbox 360 games, which is a very slow progress, but there are 104 Xbox 360 games that you can play in Xbox One.
Here Sony’s advantage is that they can build an emulator which will run at full speed and they do not have to waste time to make a patch for each game. So we are hoping that Sony would not charge for 10-15-year-old games.
