Sony develops PS2 emulator for PlayStation 4

The Sony Playstation 4 is one of the best gaming consoles money can buy at the moment but the device has a major drawback – it does not offer backwards compatibility with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2 games so if you own a PS4 console chances are your precious PS2/PS3 game collection has some dust on it. The reason for this lack of compatibility is simple – Sony wants to focus on new games.

Well, maybe “wants” is not the precise word anymore, which is good news for PS2 and PS3 owners. The news is that Sony has finally decided to create a game emulator for the PS4 that will allow older PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 games to be played on this console. This change comes full two years after the PlayStation 4 was launched but better late than never. Unfortunately there are no other details as of now but the news is good as it is.

Sony has already released some PS2 games that can run on the PS4 so careful PlayStation fans have already seen the upcoming change. For instance a bundle that is now on the market includes a PS4 gaming console as well as the Star Wars: Battlefront game plus a selection of classic Star Wars games such as Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. In fact it seems that Sony has been seeking a solution to this problem since sometime last year.

We will have more details in December when Sony unveils its full list of PS2-to-PS4 compatible games and ways to obtain them. This will happen at the upcoming Sony PlayStation Experience event.
