Sony has been trying their best to offer PlayStation fans something that can rival the Microsoft’s hugely popular backwards compatibility program for Xbox One, and so far what they have come up with is the PS2 Classics Emulation program. This essentially is a process where Sony is going back into the archives and updating PS2 games to download and play on PS4, though you obviously have to pay for them again and cannot use the copy of the PS2 game that you already own. Still, the PS2 has tons of classic games that I and many others would love to see brought back into the limelight in someway, and it looks like Sony has open ears when it comes to what the fans are looking for.
Loving all the PS2 on PS4 feedback! Use #ps2ps4 for your wish list suggestions so we can easily aggregate them all. We are listening…

Sony’s Dave Thach posted the above message on Twitter, while also letting everyone know that they are all about “modernizing and celebrating as many PS2 heritage titles” as possible. There are so many games to choose from with the PS2 that they could bring over 100 of them and still not even have scraped the surface. Games like Final Fantasy X, Resident Evil 4, and Devil May Cry 3 are but a few of the hundreds of great games that are begging to be brought to PS4 to be experienced all over again or for the very first time for new gamers.
Sony originally launched the PS2 Classics Emulation program earlier this month, which had them kicking it all off with the following eight fan favorite games:
- Dark Cloud
- Grand Theft Auto III
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- Rogue Galaxy
- The Mark of Kri
- Twisted Metal: Black
- War of the Monsters
Not only are these games being brought from the PS2 to the PS4, but they will all also offer full Trophy support and up-rendered 1080p visuals. The games will also be compatible with all of the PlayStation 4’s most popular features, like Remote Play, Live Broadcast and Share Play.
