"PS2 Classics and PS2-Formatted discs are incompatible with the PS4 system."


Fuck this shit. Especially the PS2 Classics part.


No way in hell I'm purchasing a PS2 game on PSN for the second time.

That description reads like a remaster rather than just a port...though the last sentence suggest port (as a download).

I mean trophies are going to be something that might push me over but not supporting existing discs or digital PS2 games from PS3 just sucks. I already wrote off the PS2 games on PS3 when save data couldn't be brought over.

Can't wait for people who ridiculously got their hopes up for disc based emulation to now be outraged at Sony. It was never going to happen. Not sure why the thought was ever entertained.

Can't say I even remotely expected discs, but what the hell at (apparently) not being able to use my PS2 classics.

I don't know what anyone expected, it wouldn't be worth the investment for sony if you could just go buy used PS2 games and play them on PS4

Even paying a $1 upgrade charge like Nintendo does would be better than just being SOL with PS2 Classics. Fuck

It is possible the PS2 Classics are restricted by license issues, like PS1 classics are restricted from playing on Vita, for example.

So, it is (in that case) probably a license problem, not a technical one.

So is the PS2 emulator they wrote for PS2 Classics on PS3 just too much work to port or remake for the PS4?

I don't think discs were ever on the table were they? Kind of disappointing that were applicable that they won't cross buy your legacy classics on your account. Still, torphy support and share play? Pretty awesome.

Correct. And the amount of current gen users with PS2 discs is very small.

Most gamers don't collect.

Not having discs was expected but not carrying over PS2 digital licenses from the PS3 era is pretty shitty.
