Fan-Favorite PS2 Games Launching on PS4 Tomorrow

Hello everyone. As we continue our celebration of the PlayStation 20th anniversary, we want to take a look back at the heritage that helped propel us to the brand that we are today. PlayStation 2 holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers who have fond memories of playing some of the biggest franchises in gaming.

PS2 remains the best-selling console of all time, thanks in part to the revolutionary tech built into the box, such as support for the DVD format for games and movies, a powerful graphics processor, and specialized chips for particle effects and physics. Above and beyond the technical innovations that made PS2 stand apart is the huge catalog of amazing and much loved games, such as Dark Cloud, Twisted Metal: Black, and the PS2-era classic Grand Theft Auto games, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, just to name a few.

Fan-Favorite PS2 Games Launching on PS4 Tomorrow

To celebrate our PS2 heritage, I’m excited to announce that starting tomorrow, you will be able to purchase and play PS2 games on your PS4 via PlayStation Store in the Americas and Europe.

We are getting things started with a bang by launching with eight fan favorites tomorrow:

  • Dark Cloud — $14.99
  • Grand Theft Auto III — $14.99
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City — $14.99
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas — $14.99
  • Rogue Galaxy — $14.99
  • The Mark of Kri — $14.99
  • Twisted Metal: Black — $9.99
  • War of the Monsters — $9.99

Having these titles available on PS4 is already incredibly exciting for us, but we did not stop there. We have brought these titles forward to meet today’s gaming standards by adding Trophy support! Each title’s Trophy set has been carefully developed in conjunction with feedback from the original creators to be sure that they capture the spirit and feeling of each game.

Also, you will be able to experience all of these PS2 games like never before — in up-rendered 1080p with the features you expect from a PS4 game including Remote Play, Live Broadcast, Share Play, Activity Feeds, and Second Screen support for game manuals with PlayStation Vita or PlayStation App.

And if you’re attending PlayStation Experience in San Francisco this weekend, you’ll be able to play these PS2 games on PS4 at the show floor:

  • Dark Cloud
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
  • PaRappa the Rapper 2 (coming soon)
  • Rogue Galaxy
  • The King of Fighters 2000 (coming soon)
  • The Mark of Kri
  • War of the Monsters

We will be working tirelessly to bring you your favorite PS2 games with new releases on a regular basis, and we hope you love playing PS2 games on PS4 as much as we did making them! So tell us, what PS2 games do you want to play on your PS4?

Long live PlayStation!

  • Port Dark Cloud 2 to Vita.

    • I love this idea, but…. $15?

    • And the GTA games. None of this streaming garbage please.

    • Platinum trophies?!?

    • Believe me when I confirm that $15 for a restored version of the title is an utter bargain.

      The original(Dark Cloud 2/Chronicles) is one of the few games that the heads of xseed, NIS america and atlus would actively fight to the death to publish. Well maybe not death, but close. It’s very well regarded.

      On the plus side, I’m looking forward to seeing how Rogue Galaxy holds up.
      It ran in a special mode on B/C PS3’s before the feature was removed.
      It was quite spiffy running on the hardware, less jaggies, etc.

    • Socom 2 with online multi player PLEASE!!!!!

    • SOCOM 2 with online multiplayer!!!!!! SONY we always show up when you ask us what we want…Please make this happen or acknowledge that you have no interest in giving us this title that we have spent a decade asking for. Stop leading us on. Either do it or say that you won’t.


    • omg please bring socom 2 with multi-player

    • SOCOM 2!!!!!
      Online multiplayer
      All services
      No cheaters
      No lag

    • The suffering 1&2
      Hunter the reckoning?

    • @danjer047 That PlayStation bro, always taxing their ****!

    • I would love to have dragon ball infinite world and zatch bell mamodo fury

    • Please bring back Dbz TenKaichi 3 and Dbz Infinite World. Please I had so many memories from those games. It would be cool to have them on ps4. Shout out to Rhymestyle

    • And bring back Nba/Nfl street

    • What about the Star Wars PS2 games that were included in the Battlefront bundle? I’ve been anxiously anticipating them since they were announced back in August.

    • Myself along with thousands of others would like see socom 2 remastered and released for the ps4.
      There is a whole community of players who for over a decade stayed faithful to Sony and the socom franchise specifically because of socom.
      Will we be able to get the socom titles to play and get the much loved multilayer game back in our lives?

      Ever since the closure of the confrontation servers on the ps3, I haven’t turned my system on for more than a few minutes. I bought the ps4 in the hope that h hour would be released or psn would remaster confrontation for the ps4 and release it on the system with new ways to beat the cheaters that killed the game on the ps3.

      I can honestly say that if socom isn’t going to become available to play again especially the multiplayer, then my gaming days are over.
      I’ve played an awful lot of games in my 30 years of video games, mostly on PlayStation. However, I’ll be hanging up the controller soon if socom doesn’t come back…

      Socom is the game on my wishlist along with many other friends I made on that game..

      C’mon Sony, give us back our socom…

    • Can you have Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Dragon Ball Infinite World.

    • Dragon Ball Z : Tenkaichi 3
      Dragon Ball Z : Infinite World
      Naruto : Ultimate Ninja 4
      Dragon Ball Z!!!!!!!!!


    • Dragon ball budokai tenkaichi 3 and infinite world take my money

    • Tenkaichi 3 and Infinite World!!!! Infinite World never got it’s just due

    • Add dragon ball z tenkaichi 3 please one of the best titles

    • Final Fantasy IX please!

    • I would love it if you add Ghost Recon because it was me and my father’s favorite game. We would always play co-op. It would be awesome if you add it PSN.

    • I’m still a bit confused after reading that last bit of text. I purchased some of these games on when they were released as the ‘classics’ and I understand that those aren’t compatible with these new updated versions. But do I have to pay for these again if I want to play them on the PS4? I doubt it’s true, but I read somewhere that if you purchased them as classics, the updated versions will appear as free downloads. Some clarification would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Also, I hope to see Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3:)


    • Dragon ball z budokai tenkaichi 3 and infinite world please ☺

    • Fire Pro Wrestling Returns with save support like the version on PS3 please
      King of Colosseum 2

    • Publishers decide what to publish the game at, you decide what price you are willing to pay.

      Maybe a sale will help those 2 lines cross.

    • Yo why isn’t SOCOM 2 on here? WTF!

    • Please bring back Colosseum: Road to Freedom

    • Here comes the pain, Fire Pro Wrestling returns, Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Infinite World and Midnight Club 3 dUB Edition


    • Def Jam fight for New York

    • Please SONY PLEASE Dragonball Z fans would like to play (Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 & Dragonball Z infinte world) Please SONY please

    • Please put in dbz budokai3 and dbz infinite world and will you be able to buy these games in the middle east

    • Put in dbz budokai3 and dbz infinite world. And also will you be able to buy these games in the Middle East.

    • Do dragon ball z tenkaichi 3! Plz! I never played since I sold my ps2 a while ago and I really want it! COME ON! NOW!NOW!NOW!

    • Give us SOCOM 2 or let us know it’s never happening, so tired of this great community being disrespected and ignored. We only ever wanted our game at its best. PLEASE SONY, do the right thing here, FOR THE PLAYERS, we are waiting… Long Live SOCOM.

    • Plz add Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3


    • please release dragon ball z budokai tenkaichi 3 for this

    • Sonic Heroes

    • Please do Simpsons hit and run

    • Sony…listen up because all you say you care about is the games and the gamers.

      I also know you care about $$$.

      If you want people to pay $15 for a PS2 game (which is absolutely ridiculous) you need to release Socom 2 with working servers.

      I could guarantee there would be 10,000 or more people that would drop $15 on that game in a split second.

      3,000-4,000 people roughly donated over $300,000 to H-Hour and it wasn’t even Socom 2…

      Do you understand that math? Means people literally paid close to $100 for a prototype game that wasn’t even the original Socom 2…

      That could have been your $ Sony. All you have to do is release Socom 2 HD and enjoy your $$$.

      I would bet that it would be your highest selling game for this PS2 to PS4 sales platform.

      Make it happen and give the tens of thousands of loyal players who spent their lives on your game that made the PS2 and online play what it was.

      Stop ignoring us and give us what we want.

      I want my SOCRACK!

      No, but for real. DO IT!!

    • Onimusha series please!!!!

    • Were paying $15 for a game we can buy for $2 at like Walmart sure it not remastered but I’ll dust off my PS3 though

    • The naruto ultimate ninja series, like naruto ultimate ninja, ultimate ninja 2, ultimate ninja 3, ultimate ninja 4, loved those games back in the day it’ll be cool to add online on it

    • Tim Burtons The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie’s Revenge on PS4 PLEASE I’ve always wanted to play the game, but I never did. Also I’m a big fan of the movie.

    • Bring Dragon Ball Z BT3 ON PS4 PLEASE

    • Sony put in

    • While I do appreciate what you are doing, it feels detrimental to put these decade old games at such a high price point (a quarter of a new game, in modern times). Less we forget that PS2 games were sold at $49.99 and you received a physical copy with tradability and resale value after you finished your experience, the inherent cost of production and logistics to developers and publisher alike was justifyable at that price point, the market agreed so it continue.

      But here you are selling a digital copy, with zero material value (can’t trade or sell), potential loss of use with future technology (PS5) at a price point that you cannot justify. It does not cost Sony or any Publisher any money in physical copies or logistics or marketing to promote these titles, the fact that you implemented a trophy system and upscaled the graphic obviously merits a cost, and as a day 1 Playstation Owner since PS1, I have seen enough evolution in hardware to know that in the next iteration of Playstation my library may not be available to me.

    • NBA Street vol. 2 please

    • Fell for this the first time when they were available on PS3. Fool me once…
      Basically, despite being good games at their time, realize that you’re playing on the ****** old legacy control scheme that you cannot change, unusable camera controls, etc. Better off playing these on Steam, at least the controls back then are comparable with a mouse and keyboard.

    • Uhh… What happened to SOCOM? Didn’t that win the vote contest? Or were you guys scared that you wouldn’t sell any other games if brought back the one game we all want? Personally I want SOCOM 1&2 along with a playable confrontation. If I had those games I’d probably never leave the house.


    • NFL STREET !!!!!!!!! Those were THE BEST GAMES!!!! And NBA STREET PLSSSSSS

    • The Suffering, and The Suffering:Ties That Bind!! I wish someone would do a remake of those! One of my fav horror games aside from Silent Hill 2!

    • Yes please, show Vita some love. Dark Cloud 2 is perfect for Vita IMO.
      Rogue Galaxy is interesting also.

    • Seriously guys!!!! NFL STREET! Insane!! Ricky Williams all the bad ass legends! Heck even street 2 ! Nba streets with all classic legend!!

    • I’d love to see the Shadow Hearts series on this.

    • .Hack and .Hack G.U. series are must adds!!!!!

    • @SHOR73RM uhhh no, clearly the extra 5 dollars is because of the extra features. You do know that they had to edit the source code to make trophies and other features available right?? That costs work hours which means money for the companies involved. Trophy support for PS2 games is something people have been asking for. not everyone, cause most people can still appreciate games without the added incentive, but most people agreed it would be nice. I just hope they make an emulator for the “classics” and still continue this updated games too so you have an option in price/features. The only issue I see in that is, that there are still possibilities of repurchasing being an option. Like if they added the “CLassics” and you buy the Fatal Frames, but dont know that they are getting ready to release updated versions of those.

    • Please bring brank Dragon Ball Tenkaichi3 and Infinite World

    • True Crime New York. Though I wish someone would carry on with the True Crime franchise, it’s a great game with loads of potential.

    • Honestly I think the best game to add is star wars battlefront 2 mainly due to how much of a slap in the face the new one was (in my opinion) and to appease fans of the series.

    • I actually logged in to say the same thing. My most requested games at the moment are:
      – SSX and EA Sports BIG games (NBA/NFL Street)
      – JRPGS
      – Viewtiful Joe
      – PS2 Exclusives in general

      Also if you could address why there is no Disc or classics bought on the PS3 compatibility that would help a lot I would imagine. It’s not a big issue to be as long as the price is right ($10 really should be the standard), but as always people on the internet are upset and it would be a cool feature in the future if someone is working on it.

    • I’m sure EA’s lawyers would also die trying to navigate those licensed soundtracks.

    • SSX 3 i would play that often along with NFL Street Series but IDK if EA would go back but if its a big demand it will happen

    • @gerneric123 Oh man, the licensed tracks didn’t even occur to me. Those weak contracts they sign to have them are honestly one of the greatest detriments to the preservation of games out there (besides Konami of course).

    • @gerneric123 – wasn’t all the music by Mix Master Mike?

    • Some of the games are $10, some are $15.

      There will be sales. Considering that Nintendo charges $5 for NES games with less features $10 for SNES games with less featres, and Sony charges $5-10 for PS1 games (that you can play on PS3, Vita TV, PSP, OR Vita at no additional cost), and $10-15 for PS2 games with WAY more features…

      When I play Super Mario RPG on the Wii, my eyes burn until I screw with settings to smooth everything out or sit really really far back. If you play it on the Wii U, it downscales into Wii Mode and you can’t use the HDMI port.

      Compared to how Nintendo is handling this stuff Sony is hitting it out of the park.

      Microsoft… well they aren’t going back back to their roots, just last generation so.. you can’t even compare the 2 services.

      I will gladly pay $10-15 dollars so that I can play the games, they will be cleaned up a bit, and have trophy support, without turning off all of my PS4 functionality. Trophies tell you a lot about gaming habits and are a great way to break ice.

      At that point just buy a PS2 for cheapish or do things the dark way.


    • I would deffinitely love to see SSX3 again

    • Bring budokai tenkaichi and infinite world the fans need and want it right now more than ever

    • NBA street 3
      NFL street 3
      50 cent: Bulletproof
      SSX Tricky

  • SOCOM 2

    • YEP^^^^^ Only one i’d consider spending $15 on

    • So let down SOCOM 2 with ONLINE wasn’t included on this list. Our community has been at the top of every Sony requested games list but continues to be ignored.

    • Shot in the dark but are you The Main Event from the IGN boards back in the early 2000’s? I was Mainframe and leader of clan CQC we didn’t use tags. I miss those days so much.

    • I would pay $30 to have Socom back up and running but our money and input must not matter

    • This is EXACTLY what I thought, when I felt forced to buy Call of Duty : Declassified on Vita.

      “I sure would have liked Socom 3 instead”

      Unit 13 was well worth the money spent at release (since I had nothing), and I am completely confused why it was Zipper Interactive’s last game.

      -Same goes for why Splinter Cell wasn’t .

    • Please bring SOCOM to the PS4. It would be a huge hit!


  • You had me at Rogue Galaxy and Dark Cloud.

  • Sweet! Platinum trophies?

    • Yes. there are platinum trophies for SOME but not ALL. for exmple: twisted metal black has 13 trophies no platinum. How the GTA games have 30+ trophies each and each with there own platinum. same for rogue galaxy. type it in google to see the trophies.

  • “So tell us, what PS2 games do you want to play on your PS4?” –> THE ONES I ALREADY OWN ON DISC

    • Agreed, I have my catalog of PS2 games from TimeSplitters to Burnout that I would like to use my PS4 for. Don’t tell me the emulator can’t access the disc drive… And at the very least, I already had Twisted Metal Black on PS3, I really hope I wouldn’t have to rebuy that just to play it on PS4. If so, NO DEAL. Wasn’t Sony for the gamers?!

    • This.

    • the people who replies to this person’s comment and the person who commented, why isn’t this enough for you…most people don’t have any Ps2 discs anymore….why do you still have them anyways…pretty sure none of you still play them. what they are giving us is fine. this was probably really hard to do, why can’t you be grateful for the hardwork and dedication to the fans they are showing with this move. PlayStation is for the Gamers. Thank you Shuhei. You are a great man and I respect you and the company for all the hardwork you do for every single one of us.

    • Flowreaper is Yoshida.

    • I have a working PS2 (and its cheap to replace it, if necessary), so I don’t really care about backward compatibility with PS1 or PS2 discs. What I care about is backward compatibility with existing PS1 and PS2 Classics, even just in the raw emulated form in which I’ve already purchased them.

      In terms of PS2 games I’d be interested in buying on PS4, the obvious ones are Dragon Quest VIII and Final Fantasy XII, both of which aren’t available as existing PS2 Classics.

    • @flowreaper – It’s not enough for me, because the PS2 games I’d be most interested in playing are games that are very unlikely to ever get a re-release, so having disc support would be beneficial to me so that I could get disc copies, and play those games. In this incarnation, it’s a useless feature to me.

    • I still have 80+ PS2 games: Jak and Daxters, Ratchets, Dark clouds, Rogue Galaxy, FF 12, Shadow Hearts, Mercenaries, Tekkens, Dragon Quest, Gran Turismos, SOCOMs, I could keep going. Explain why not having an emulator that can read my old discs is a good thing?

    • Really crossing my fingers that they at least do something in the future involving disks, because I find that there is no reason for them not to do it, since xbox is already doing it.

      Even if they did do it, I still understand that not all games would be available, but that right there is better than nothing.

    • This and the ones i’ve already purchased on PS3 via PSN like God Hand and Persona 3 FES.

  • If we have to choose between trophy support or physical disc support, 100% of people will choose disc support.

    • Trophies all the way.

    • Of course, but to be fair, at least they aren’t giving you the emulated game. They added trophies and upscaled resolution. Don’t get me wrong, I totally get you. I’d much rather play the games I own than having to repurchase them again; all I’m saying is that at least it’s not a cheap cop out to score some bucks from raw emulated games~.

    • Disc support has no value for me. If forced to pick, I would choose trophies.

    • Trophies of course. Most people don’t have their discs. I wish someone who was big in the community like greg or colin would post a poll on who has discs still or not

    • This.

      Hilarious they aren’t even going to give the PS2 classics you bought on PS3/PSN.

      Absolutely anti-consumer and against game ownership. The competition is either doing backwards compatibility or working towards a growing list and the market leader is going to charge you again and again for the games you own.

    • Thanks for trying to speak for me, M3wThr33…but I’d rather have the Trophies. The PS4 isn’t even designed to run discs constantly anyway, so you’d probably burn out the drive pretty fast playing from PS2 discs. I’d much rather have the Trophies. I’d ALSO much rather have good pricing, and $15 seems too high to me. I defended that price point for Xbox Originals on 360 YEARS ago…but time has passed, and it no longer makes sense.

    • Not going to lie, i have a huge PS2 collection in a binder, but these days I hate physical media.
      Given the choice, I would choose Trophies easily. Getting to go back to some of my old favorite games and add to my trophy count? Doesn’t get much better to me.

    • nope
      I don’t have any discs.. and I wouldn’t buy Rogue Galaxy disc for 30-40€ lol

    • I would absolutely pick trophies, that would allow me to play older games I’ve played a million times already in a potential new and fresh way, and give me some new challenges to strive for (:

    • I’d pick trophies over disc support anyday, especially if it comes with 1080p resolution, and the ability to stream, record and shareplay. I have Dark Cloud 2 on PS2 disc and a PS3 which emulates it perfectly. BUT I would buy it again for $15 with no hesitation. I’m goina buy dark cloud 1 with no hesitation andI own the disc. Also $15 dollars is not a bad price point at all. That’s great seeing that’s what some of the PS2 titles where priced on PS3 and were inferior. But I will say if you owned the PS2 Classic, you should get these versions for free imo. Luckily the only PS2 classics I own are from codes. I own Twisted Metal Black and Medal of Honor Frontlines. So rebuying wouldn’t be an issue since I wouldn’t :).

  • Rogue Galaxy!!! That game slipped through my HUGE PS2 backlog. Redemption awaits!

  • I would like to just have backwards compatibility in general (old as-is games, new improved versions) combined with big overhauls (like the Team ICO Collection).

    Speaking of which: give us a way to play the Team ICO Collection on the PS4, please. ;___;

  • Internet is going to crash after this. Shu you did it. XD

    • wat? he’s not a Saint, people
      he’s just a greedy man and he proved it
      i wish Ken Kutaragi was on charge, because that man is the reason why the PS1 and PS2 dominate the market
      they were leading and they keep making great stuff
      what we have now? a leading console doing stupid decision it seems they are trying harder to lost consumers
      Yoshida Step your game up
      i bet tomorrow at PSX we are gonna see Multiplatform games and exclusive contents (mark my words, tomorrow you’ll say Twinspectre was right)
      why don’t you guys invest money on making games Exclusives from first party to third party ?
      be Competitive and if you’re first place just imagine you’re in the last place

      Leading doesn’t mean being greedy and arrogant

      people that are kissing this man A.. i hate them seriously
      he showed you the middle finger and what you do? is kissing this man a**

      modern PlayStation is disgusting like the Xbox

      i bet Microsoft is working on making the OG xbox bc via disk

  • Are these cross buy for the ones already on PS3 like Twisted Metal Black or Vice City? Also will Dark Cloud hit PS3 as well or just PS4? I’m glad these are finally coming out and hope PS1 games arrive soon too.

    I’d like to see Final Fantasy 12, Silent Hill 2, .Hack games,Half-life , Drakengard 1&2 and probably a bunch of others I can’t think of at the moment!

  • No Cross Buy with PS2 classics on PS3 is disappointing, but understandable.

    • No it’s not. They know you have a license to the game on PS3, they’re just being cheap by denying you access to a PS4 version.

    • actually, no, it’s not really understandable. just disappointing :) …

    • I actually find it weird that this is their answer to backwards compatibility. Paying a subscription fee to play games you may own with PS Now and selling PS2 classics you bought on PS3 again.

    • Got an xbox one for exclusives, turned it on to find a LARGE number of 360 games i purchased digitally already ready to load. I bought playstation classics games assuming a similar thing would happen like with the vita randomly supporting ps one classics, this is dissapointing knowing the ammout of money i spent and that i wont be able to trust sony to carry those purchases over… both wii u and xbone do that

  • Dark Cloud 2 please ASAP

  • Persona 4 is one of my favorite games ever. If they could put that on PS4 before the release of Persona 5, I’d be soooo happy.

  • Please consider cross-buy or an upgrade path for people who own the digital copies on PS3, Shu. Thanks.

  • Port Parappa the Rapper 2 please

  • lol given the silence I guess you have to rebuy the PS2 Classics you bought on PS3 lololololololololololol #4theplayers

  • We wnat crach to comeback !

  • Wow they weren’t kidding when they said fan favorites! Great list!!

  • Any plans for crossbuy or heavy discounted sales for those who purchased some of these PS2 games digitally, or even with a disc(doubtful, but one can dream)?

    I read an article saying nothing to this point, but when I own many of these PS2 Classics on PS3, it makes me feel kind of upset for bothering to buy them, when they are now to be available for PS4 with enhancements.

    • Except, you know, you got to play the games when they were actually relavent instead of waiting 10+ years for generations of consoles to occur so you could get the version with “Enchancements?”

    • Slashim – so, you are saying it is a bad idea to even have the PS2 games coming to PS4? Or just a bad idea for anyone to want the DRM to transfer to PS4 from PS3/PSN?

    • Its not a bad idea to make them available, but you made a purchase of a game on the PS3, you got to play that game, you can still play that game. They made changes to said game, released it on a new console and charge a price for it. Why would/should that be free? You got your money’s worth out of it, if you didnt, that’s not Sony’s fault, it’s yours. Sony has been ahead of the curve almost every step of the way giving gamers what they want, they pay folks to do that, they are in business to make money.

      Now, Dragon Ball: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, this needs to happen. I get the feels just thinking about it.

    • @Slashim

      The difference with “rebuying” these, is that they aren’t HD remasters. I paid for Shadow of the Collosus, Sly Cooper, Ratchet and Clank, Metal Gear Solid, God of War SAGA collection, etcetera. They had work done to them, to change the game for the better. Especially with Sly, God of War, and R&C. These games aren’t just ports.

      In the case of these PS2 games, from what seems to be the case, are just running under an emulator with an external trophy application. Not to say that the addition of trophies doesn’t take extra time, but it’s scanning the game for specific events, that can act as triggers for trophies.

      When I buy a PS1 game digitally, it runs on PS3, then it ran on PSP, then PSVITA(with some exception). The only reason it doesn’t run on PS4 is because the proper emulator does not exist on its platform.

      Now, games have licenses to get approved for specific platforms, yes, and these games are old, and thus require testing, like games get when taking a 1990s game on to Windows 10, before being approved.

    • (Continued)

      The trophies are simply another process on to that. So for all games to not just work, I get, but again…There is no reason to have to rebuy this, when they have proof of the license on their own service tied to my account.

      I’m glad they run better, truly, and for that I’d love to try them out, especially since occasionally some games are amazing, like The Matrix: Path of Neo, that just had significant framedrops, damaging the greatness the game could’ve been. For that, it is worth it. But not enough to pay again for titles through PSN.

      If PSAS:BR can be crossbuy for VITA/PS3, PS2 games can be crossbuy for PS3/PS4.

  • Final Fantasy 12 and Shadow of the Colossus are all I’d ever need to have from the ‘ole PS2 days!!

  • PS2 Classics Wish List:
    – Silent Hill 2/3/The Room/Origins (i don’t like HD remasters)
    – Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria
    – Obscure 1/2
    – Xenosaga 1/2/3

    AND LET ME PLAY ON PS4 Twisted Metal Black, Fatal Frame I-II-III, Contra Shattered Sodiers, I already pay for it on PS3.

    • That is my exact collection of ps2 classics on my PS3 as well. Good games.

      But yeah I definitely agree, we need to have the Xenosaga trilogy join this goodness. Those would be my top picks.

  • For the love of the Playstation community….. please bring over the NFL Street Series. Those games are literally childhood memories

  • I don’t own many PS2 Classics at the moment, but for those that do, some kind of upgrade path would be nice.

    • Not even an upgrade path, when you buy something digitally, you are buying a license. For example, a digital PSP game entitles you to play that game on up to two Sony devices [PSP or PSV]. This should’ve been no different, the game you bought on your PS3 is probably the same game you’ll buy again. The graphic upscaling is on the emu, not the game’s disc~.

  • The price is too steep =( but the idea is great

  • I think the Onimusha series would be pretty cool to bring over.

  • Wow. Still no Socom. You must have a real HATE for the socom based players.

  • I LOVE YOU!!!!!

  • Will these games show on our trophy list as PS2 games instead of PS4 games?

    If not, can you please make it so? Would be neat to have the PS2 tag on my trophy list :p

  • Cross buy for the games i already own as PS Classics?

  • The .hack series would be interesting to see again. Getting the vita to play ps2 games as well would be nice but I’ll not hold my breath

  • I’d love to see:

    .hack (All of them) – they cost way too much to buy secondhand anymore and the games deserve it.

    Tales of Legendia – same as above and while some can use their old backwards compatible PS3s, this game has issues with that.

    Xenosaga trilogy – Sounds like it didn’t garner enough attention to warrant an HD remaster, but putting it on PSN for PS4 should still be possible, right?

  • Glad to see, but $15 is a little steep for me personally, especially if I already own the game. Hopefully I’ll be able to pick some of these up in the future in some good flash sales or Plus sales.

  • Wheres Socom??? you know the game that won apparently a worthless favorite game on ps2 poll..

  • Ape Escape 2, Ape Escape 3, Okage: Shadow King, Yakuza 1, Yakuza 2, Orphen: Scion of Sorcery, Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel and Fullmetal Alchemist 2 Curse of the Crimson Elixer.

  • !5 bucks is too much for a PS2 classic. I’d not pay over 10 bucks for a 10+ year old game.

  • Just let us have SOCOM 2 and the Jak and Daxter series and I’ll be ok.

    • I also support J&D. I didn’t play SOCOM, but everybody on here is so crazy about it, Sony can’t afford not to release it. I might pick it up this time around.

  • It would be awesome if you guys bring over all three Fatal Frame games to the PS4. Also, we need Bloody Roar 4 and Bujingai! Actually we need ALL PS1 and PS2 games to the PS4!!!

  • Xenosaga 1-3

  • I can understand not letting people play their original PS2 discs. It not ideal but I can understand it since it was the same with later versions of the PS3.

    What I do not understand is why can’t people play the PS2 classics they’ve already purchased? Bad move, Sony. I can’t support this. Feels like a sleazy cash grab. I’d rather have no trophy support or extra features than the possibility of having to re-buy games that I already twice (physical and digital).

    You guys really dropped the ball with this one.

  • Persona 3, when :D

  • Super excited! I really wanna see the Persona series and Need for Speed Most Wanted be a part of this!

  • I was really hoping for PS1 support so I could just play all the classic titles I already purchased last gen digitally.
    It is pretty crazy to think that PS2, PS3, PS Vita and PS TV ALL can do this but there most powerful console is left out in the cold.

  • I’d pay $15 for the original PS2 era Socom games with online support and so would a lot of other gamers as well!

  • TimeSplitters 2 & 3!!!!

  • Thanks you all, this is neato. Looking forward to PaRappa 2, I hope input lag has been accounted for. It’ll be sweet to play that without hooking up my PS2. Not to immediately look a gift horse in the mouth and ask for more, but I hope there’s still consideration for bringing PS1 titles to PS4 in a similar way. That said, I’m glad you all have gotten this together, excited to see even more games to come.

  • $15? Nice try Sony, but no.

  • Any way to get Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence Disc 2 on here? I’m trying to play some Metal Gear Online since fans managed to get their own servers up for it. Also fans managed to get both of the Resident Evil Outbreak games back online so those would be a good choice too.
