    I've decided to upgrade this recent news to its own thread because eventually more and more titles will be added on both Western and Japanese sides.

    Original News:


    Additional Notes confirmed by Shuhei:
    ■ Many of the titles will have a Platinum Trophy
    ■ The PS2 games have been improved
    ■ There will not be any cross-platform or reduced funds for PS2 classic PS3 owners
    ■ PS2 discs will not be compatible with PS4

    Post in the comments below on what PS2 games you would like to see appear on PlayStation 4!

    The prices motivated me to update my PCSX2 plugins. Mark of Kri is still good!

    Need to find my Rogue Galaxy disc, though.

    And still playing them with a DS4 thanks to InputMapper.

    Re: PS2 Classics Heading to PlayStation 4 Thread

    Even though I grew up with the PlayStation 2 I didn't get the chance to pay many of the classics that everyone loves. Remember I was age-restricted so I was limited to certain games:

    [​IMG]

    The only worthy games in my PS2 collection were Burnout 3, Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex (regrettably sold), Goldeneye: Rouge Agent (not everyone's taste but dual wielding is fun), James Bond: Everything for Nothing, Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, SSX Tricky and Star Wars: Battlefront 1 & 2.

    Still I'm looking forward to this. I did download 5 PS2 games on PSN: Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Fu-un Shinsengumi (Japanese download), Max Payne, Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES.

    If they add Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore on PS4 I would certainly wait for that, heck they better add Dynasty Warriors 3 because I want to experience those English dub voices in real time.

    Re: PS2 Classics Heading to PlayStation 4 Thread

    New title possibly on the horizon:

    Max Payne has been rated for the PS4 by the ESRB. The title was also available on PS3.

    Re: PS2 Classics on PlayStation 4 OT | Max Payne rated by ESRB

    New updates:

    PAL versions of the PS2 Classics are 50Hz "with a crude frame-blending 'upscale' to the 60Hz output". Eurogamer reported there were a lot of frame-pacing issues but most of it was actually caused by the 50Hz to 60Hz blending. In other words, the UK/EU/AU versions are inferior to the US version.

    In other news, PlayStation US have set the three Star Wars PS2 games to February 16th 2016.

    It's great to be able earn trophies for playing PS2 classics but the prices are pretty steep. There's really no way i would buy something that i already own on a PS2 unless it was heavily discounted.

    How awesome this new "feature" will be is really based on of how many rare games we will see transferred and how many games we will see that PAL territories never got.

    I can live with paying over 10 euros for games like "Rule Of Rose" or "Echo Night" but i won't buy games that i can easily still get for fair price.

    More than slightly worried about how PaRappa will play under modern conditions.

    If the .Hack and .Hack//GU games come over, i'll be happy as I loved the former series and missed the latter series.

    I'd also like to give Black another go (EA)

    Back in December, Sony announced they will be bringing select PlayStation 2 titles on the PlayStation 4's store as a digital download. Unlike the PS3 versions, the PS4 will offer a special emulated version where the quality is up-rendered to 1080p, improved frame rate, trophy support and additional features like Remote Play and Streaming. At least one title has been added per week every now and then.
