So recently I wrote about the New Xbox One update and its goodies and here I am today with some PS4 news about emulation. It turns out that the rumored PS1 & PS2 emulation for the PS4 that Sony talked about about a year ago is now actually going to be a thing. Things lit up for me in the middle of the night with reports about a PS2 emulator coming to the PS4 and then I found this article for Wired where Sony did indeed confirm that it was happening:
We are working on utilizing PS2 emulation technology to bring PS2 games forward to the current generation,
We have nothing further to comment at this point in time.
PS2 Emulation on PS4 – What’s available?
The PS2 emulator should already be available to these recent reports and there is even a bundle that includes some of these classics, to be exact the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 bundle includes Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars: Racer Revenge and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.
With all of this said I don’t own or have access to a PS4 so it’s up to the community to actually confirm this and see if there is anything out place. The articles I’ve read are claiming that the games are being upscaled by the emulator and results are impressive but as I myself can’t run these games I couldn’t say for sure but Eurogamer have there own report on it and even a video and I think this is very exciting, it seems Sony might be doing something with there console and looking at feedback on what could be a part of the next firmware so I think there might be some good stuff planned for the PS4, if only the Vita could get some more of this love.
Is there any game you would like to try on the new emulator?
