The PlayStation 2 games we need on PS4 right now

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

Death1159d ago

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) ...

Eonjay1159d ago

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
The Fairly OddParents Breakin' Da Rules
Gran Turismo 3 A-spec
Harry Potter (All of THEM)
Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer
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.

SourtreeDing1158d ago

Socom 2 with online and timesplitter 2 ;) is all i need

explicitbaron1158d ago

I beg to differ

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.

KwietStorm1158d ago

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

leahcim1158d ago

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.

Spotie1158d ago

Most of the best PS2 games are still only available on PS2.

X-231158d ago

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.

uth111159d ago

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

donwel1158d ago

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 ;)

DasTier1159d ago

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.

KwietStorm1158d ago

So we should ask for the Xbox game through PS2 emulation? I hate that word definitive with games.

ZaWarudo1159d ago

Valkyrie Profile 2.

I lost my PS2 copy ;_;

GrimDragon1159d ago

Hunting grounds, castlevania, rumble roses, champions of norath 1-2,
