It was recently confirmed that Star Wars‘ PS2 classics run on PS4 thanks to a new emulation technology, but how does it actually look? Turns out, quite nice.
Looks really good.
Indeed it looks great. If all the PS2 games run on 60fps. Then it will be sick!
That will be my Christmas present lol (cause psx)
It does look good. Emulation sure did this game some good. Imagine able to shareplay PS1/PS2 games as well. That would be pretty sick too considering a lot of the PS2 games back then had splitscreen components but didn't have any online components. I'd love too go 1 on 1 with people online in games like Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Burnout Dominator, Sonic Riders and Crash Team Racing, etc lol
That digital foundry video was amazinb If games can be up scaled to 1080p and 60 FPS(yes I know not native 1080p, still makes a huge difference fro, SD I am really excited I think we will have an announcement at playstation event Imagine if Sony says you can play all disk based or digitally downloaded games on ps4 with upscale and better frame rate Starting early 2016 or drop the mic saying starting right after you download the update right after the show
Now, Sony, it looks great, but how about Battlefront 2?
It will come, but it will take some times.
Not if EA says no.
@Stake-AK Then EA will have my wrath.
lol, I think Disney would ok the support of the game, EA is using the license, but they do not own the Star Wars IP. I don't think they have that type of control over Star Wars, in past games anyway. If anything, if someone could look up if its supported through MS's XONE BC program, I expect anyone who is allow their past titles on XONE, will likely allow the past titles on PS4, if some of them cross that is, to my memory MS saying XB support was happening might have just been a comment of maybe not confirmed. Don't remember.
Personally I would like it if the PS4 could copy the PS2 disk image onto it's hard disk and then let you play it. Most PS2 games are going to be under 4.7GB and you could easily install most of the PS2 games you really like and want in less than 200GB. Of course for those people who have not got a PS2 disk, paying for a digital download would be the next best thing. Even though I do applaud Sony for allowing PS2 games to be up-scaled and smoothed on the PS4 I would mainly be interested with installing (if allowed) PS2 games from my collection which is over sixty games. I would have very little interest in paying for a PS2 game twice.
how about ps2 neo contra, gradius 5, ps2 einhander, ps2 metal slug, ps2 battle arena toshiden etc....
didnt care until i saw the great quality and fps. heres hoping my games get added.
But seriously. Honestly how many of you guys are going to go back and play these games? Even with the PS3 fatty I got I barely used my PS2, PS1 collection. I can only remember replaying GOW1,2 and MGS1,2,3 before GOW3 and MGS4 dropped. Other than that BC was really was not very useful for me personally. I guess it is nice for those that want it but for the life of me I really don't get why this would be important to some.
Far as im concern BC is vitally important here's reason why........... these games establish the gaming industry . and 80% of gamers are "Ol schuel" would like a continuation of (Favorite) 80's-90's games . open world only games are ok but nothing better than good old beat 'em up's - shoot ' em up's hot dang! lol.....
Silent Hill 2,3 and Shattered Memories are my main reasons :3
Some games are timeless in people's eyes. I still play the first three Resident Evils, Silent Hill 1-4 and a slew of others annually. Also, there is still a bucket list of games that I need to take care with most of them being on earlier systems. The cherry on top, I can play these games without the worry of DLC, microtransactions and other crud these recent generations brought to the table.
I would, although I normally prefer games that are made for the current console I am using. On occasion I do play older games for nostalgia reasons. As an example I do have over sixty PS2 games and even though most of those games (predominately Action/Adventure and RPG's) I have no real interest in replaying there are some which for me are timeless and if I start replaying just ten of them it would take me well over a year. I don't have a PS4 yet for a variety of reasons and cost is not one of them. I will be getting one within the next two months and having the ability to play my PS2 games (if possible) is further icing on the cake. For the PS4 there are plenty of RPG's available now and there are many more coming in 2016 that could keep me in in RPG heaven for a very long time. Till I find a bundle that I like I guess it's back to Skyrim the Legendary Edition. Note: When I say RPG's I am also including Bloodborne, as well as Dark Souls 2 and 3.
All I care about is if we'll ever see Timesplitters. Damn I miss that game so bad.
Personally I am not into to FPS games but I have played Timesplitters and was quite surprised to find myself liking it (I still have the original disk). My sons and their friends loved it.
Did anyone noticed trophies popping up on the second video? :o
Yup, they examine the game state from the emulator to add support for trophies! Remember those cheat programs? GameShark, Action Replay, etc.? They let you search through the memory of the games for variables to change and whatnot, basically same principle, they just examine them to trigger trophies. This does mean that the games need a teensy bit of work to add the trophies though. Really hoping we get more news regarding PS1/PS2 emulation in 2 weeks during the PSX conference!
King's Field IV please! And God Hand... really hoping we can use discs
That is really impressive! I can think of dozens of PS2 games I'd love to revisit. I was just playing Metal Slug Collection and The Warriors with a friend of mine the other day.
Looks great, nice that you can now play older games. Thats why i game on pc, no bc issues.
Hold on!!! this has trophies? 0.0 I'm gonna go back and play some of my old favorites and platinum them.
I have no objection to trophies for PS2 games, however I would much rather be able to install PS2 game images from my existing PS2 disks. There is no way I am going to play for a digital download of a game I already own.
at least showoff some good classic ps2 games...
That brings some nice memories back :)
