ThisGenGaming says "Parappa The Rapper, Patapon, and LocoRoco are getting remasters on PS4."
Happy to see Sony still treasures its quirky Japanese franchises
ohh man i played a lot of Patapon 2 ....it was excelent rythm game ...i hope we get all three patapon in one disc
they are fun games and it does show the diversity sony has
Remasters? This is where bc would have came in handy.
I'm not against that option, but I prefer having this as an option too. Enhanced visuals and trophy support... yes please.
Not really into trophies, i also own the first two Parappa games. Would love to fire them up.
Agreed. I'm more inclined to go back and play an old game if it has updated visuals and trophies in it. I'm excited for all of these that were announced today.
I'd rather a remaster with updated visuals any day
Parappa looks super clean. The demo on the show floor is the original demo too, when you're in the dojo with the onion.
Except those are PS1 and PS2 games, can you tell me how many original xbox games work for Xbox one BC? Bet ya cant...
Remasters and BC are two totally different things. Stop tying to make BC a selling point.
Patapon & locoRoco aren't even ps3 games. They're on psp. It's better if it's a remaster.
They are PSX games which rendered at a resolution at around 240P. Thus if they were simply upscaled to 4K without any work done they don't look as good. So producing remasters that run at a native 4K resolution will make the games look much better than before. P.S I made a mistake. Patapong and Locoroco were originally PSP games. So BC would be impossible with the physical version. If I'm not mistaken BC would be impossible with Parrapa the Rapper since its on a CD which is a format the PS4 doesn't support. Can BC be supported? In theory only with the digital versions of the games.
How could you have backwards compatibility on PlayStation 4 of a PSP game? You didn't really think this through did you?
Their PS1 and PS2 games though. Surely a refresh is required. Plus, if you have the games, why have you not kept the console to play them on, seems a bit odd.
I LOVE PATAPON! Definitely picking up.
PaRappa hell yeah!
Yea, yes and YES! Sony is really giving those transfer teams lots of contracts this generation! Semi-OT does anybody know what team is doing the transfer job?
Have to say, I'm really, really loving all these remasters, tho wasn't a huge fan of Parappa, but I like what Sony is doing. But it did make me think of something: they better make sure the PS5 is backwards compatible again! Yes, I know, keep your old console around and I do, still have my PS3 hooked up, but when the PS5 comes, one has to be moved somewhere else due to space issues, plus I've noticed that having to change back to the PS3 is not something I do all that often even tho I still have a backlog for it, just love the PS4 so much more... And yes, even tho I always say that BC on the X1 isn't a selling point for many people and that the stats MS is giving is telling us that it isn't used much I think I would be one of the few who would use it on a PlayStation....
