Sony’s quietly brought PS2 backwards compatibility to its latest console: what's your retro wishlist?
Most of the best PS2 games already have HD remakes on PS3, and PS4 can't play those type of games. The amount of untouched PS2 games that can be offered through PSN emulation are limited
Right now it's very limited since the statement Sony released is they want to bring PS2 emulation to the PS4 in the future. We have no other information including if this emulation will play disc based games or if it's digital only. We will need to give it some time before forming an educated opinion.
MOnster Hunter 2 (ofcourse with region unlocked emulation) ...
Yup. You are right. Hopefully we get full details soon. Until then its fun to speculate. Probably on the PC has more games than the PS2.
The PS4 does have an integrated DVD player so disc based ps2 games should be an option
I could make a huge list of games that haven't been touched by PSN but here are a few that I would gladly re-buy including a few PS1 games: Ape Escape (All of THEM on PS1/PS2) Army Men (All of THEM on PS1/PS2) MediEvil II (Sony is stupid sometimes which is why PSN lacks some of their own IP's) Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 Tony Hawk's Underground Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Tony Hawk's American Wasteland True Crime Street's of L.A. True Crime New York City SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom Dragon Ball Z Budokai Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2 Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 Dragon Ball Z Infinite World Dragon Ball Z Sagas Dragon Ball Z Trilogy Ed, Edd n Eddy The Mis-Edventures ESPN NFL 2K5 The Fairly OddParents Breakin' Da Rules Gran Turismo 3 A-spec Harry Potter (All of THEM) Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer Malice Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Spider-Man (All of THEM on PS1/PS2) WWE SmackDown vs RAW 2006 (PS2/PSP) Yu Yu Hakusho Dark Tournament Yu-Gi-Oh (All of THEM on PS2/PSP) This is just scratching the surface of what PSN lacks. All of these would be instant re-buys for me on PS4 and Vita.
ESPN NFL2K5.....nuff said. That and hopefully the Tenchu ninja game series.......make it happen sony.
Socom 2 with online and timesplitter 2 ;) is all i need
Pro skater! Bring it!
I beg to differ http://greasyjoystick.com/p... There are still plenty of great PS2 games that need HD remasters. I'm all for emulation but I hope more PS2/PS3 remasters are developed. The GTA series, The Simpsons games and the Xenosaga games would make good HD remasters that I surely would buy.
Who says what's "best?" Sales? PS2 had a lot of games, and some of the more obscure ones were some of the most fun, same with PS1. Give me that silly ass Dead To Rights and I'll be good. lol @ limited
did you know that the ps2 library surpass the 10.000 games, and only 0,3% of them had a remaster on ps3, please inform yourself before anything.
Most of the best PS2 games are still only available on PS2.
Riiiight ... lol you're dead wrong, and the amount of disagrees you have based on your statement is clearly proof of that.
Well this article didn't take long.
Nope, expect a ton of these articles.. it's been slow news lately outside of Fallout or Battlefront, so now these journalists have something new to write about
Is b/c available on PS4 like right now or has this article jumped the gun a bit? I only saw an article saying that Sony were considering it fairly recently. Of course I COULD go and throw a PS2 disc into my PS4 to see if it works, but I'm too lazy for that ;)
The definitive version of Battefront 2 was on xbox original, that 4 player split screen was crazy. For this we need games like Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, Ape Escape, Katamari, last Guardian, it would be even more amazing with PS1 titles such as Crash Bandicoot or Spyro.
So we should ask for the Xbox game through PS2 emulation? I hate that word definitive with games.
Valkyrie Profile 2. I lost my PS2 copy ;_;
Hunting grounds, castlevania, rumble roses, champions of norath 1-2,
Dragon Quest VIII
Most of my favorites were remastered or released digitally on PS3, but not Viewtiful Joe 1/2. We need those!
Jak and Daxter Dark Cloud 1 and 2 GTA San Andreas GTA Vice City Socom NFS Underground 1 and 2 Persona 4 God Hand Beyond Good and Evil Kingdom Hearts I and II Dragon Quest VIII ICO Okami Shadow of The Colosus
Good list. The dark cloud games are great.
I never got into dark cloud. But that might have been because I was young and the weapons would break so I was like "that's stupid" *turns off game*. A lot of people on here seem to love it and now I feel like I've missed out on some gaming goodness!
You know there is a Jak and Daxter HD remake for PS3. Same for ICO and Shadow of The Colossus. Also, you can play Beyond Good and Evil HD on PS4. It's free on PSplus this month.
You forgot The Getaway!
Socom 1 or 2, with servers back from the dead. Sony might not want to do this tho, cause I at least prob wouldn't be buying any new releases. If I had socom.
Brilliant agree 100% socom was the 1st online multiplayer game I ever played would love to see this come back I got soooo addicted to it lol.
I would absolutely love this.
War of the monsters! Nuff said
I have Platinumed Every Killzone except part one. Killzone 1
kz1 has a ps3 release
Good call, I have the KZ collection for PS3, I guess I could pull out the old PS3. I wonder if retro-trophies will even have Plats?
@ SmokingMonkey Non of the Star Wars games do, so probably not, or at least most won't. :(
@Floody You're most likely right, but here is the patent from awhile ago http://www.playstationgamer... Very strange, but this bit of old news actually brings merit to these rumors of the PS4 - PS2 BC.
I just hope they are cross-buy, cause there are a couple gems on my vita i would rather have on my ps4
Mgs snake eater Resident evil 4 god of war 1 Mk: shaolin monks. Evil dead regeneration. Ace combat. smackdown here comes the pain. defjam.
I have a giant box of PS2 games in my closet, can't wait to try some out. This is more exciting than PS3 backwards compatibility since my PS3 is sitting next to my PS4. I have no plans to ever get rid of my PS3. Hope the PS4 gets PS1 emulation too, even my OUYA emulates PS1.
Your right PS1 emulation would be nice but all PS3's can play PS1 disks and there is software for the PC that can do this as well, so it's not that big a deal as PS2 emulation.
FF12 and the Onimusha series are the only games I can think of that I would like to replay. The rest have already been remastered.
SONY PLEASE EMULATE SOCOM 2 & PUT THE SERVERS ONLINE
Looking forward to playing some Jak X and about 40 other PS2 games I got. Maybe I could finally beat Rogue Galaxy.
Persona 3 FES is all I need
The only ps2 game I didn't get rid of is ICO That's all I have left of the 70+ games I owned 😔
I miss Dragon Quest VIII...
Hopefully we can use our old game disc..
SOCOM 1/2/3...That's it. How are we not getting this? Oh wait. No we want a remaster/HD collection.
Tenchu 3 The getaway Tomb raider aniverary True crime streets of LA Spiderman2 Black Resident evil Need for speed Street fighter anthology Capcom classics collection And so many more! I want ps1 compatibility as well. 👍
I need R*'s The WARRIORS..like last year!
they really nead to make a new one for current gen. that arcade one on ps3 was not what we needed
I never played the ps3 one..but the one on the ps2 was outstanding!
Shadow of Colossus
I see a lot of people ask this for this, what's wrong with the HD remaster?
There is an HD remaster of it?! Lol no way... I had no idea
Lol, are you being sarcastic? It has been out bundled with ICO HD for 4 years, it was free for PS+ last February. Of course, they'd have to redo it for PS4 if you want it on that, the emulation might be the only way of playing it on PS4 if they don't.
No i really didnt know about it. But yeah i want it on PS4
Socom 2 with servers and Tenchu wrath of heaven.
I want to play Dark Cloud 1 and the Onimusha games.
They never added Tekken 3 or Twisted metal 2. I would start there.
Need for Speed Underground 2 (2004) Need for Speed Most Wanted (2005) Need for Speed Carbon (2006) 3 years in a row of 3 of the best NFSs in the series.. Timesplitters: future perfect Gran Turismo 4 old tomb raider games Bully Red dead Revolver (2004) and.... crash bandicoot!!!
The Getaway 1&2 are my favorite games I hope they get BC!
As im not a technical whiz im entirely sure how emulation would work, for a start would these ps2 games be free download or subscription a la ps now??
Did everyone forget about onimusha
Please, SOCOM with nice new servers and War of the Monsters!
