To celebrate the PlayStation 20th anniversary, Sony has announced that it has made some classic PS2 games available for PlayStation 4 gamers. There are total eight PS2 games that the Japanese company has released in up-rendered 1080p resolution to let you recall your game playing experience right from the new PlayStation console.
All the PS2 games that are now compatible with PlayStation 4 have features such as Live Broadcast, Share Play, Activity Feeds and Second Screen support. In addition, there is Remote Play access to let you remotely play any of the games directly from a mobile device.
Here’s the list of PS2 games that are now available on PlayStation 4:
- Dark Cloud
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- PaRappa the Rapper 2
- Rogue Galaxy
- The King of Fighters 2000
- The Mark of Kri
- War of the Monsters
These games are initially available for purchase in the US and Europe though would also reach across the worldwide markets in the coming future. “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!” Sony says in a blog post.
The new announcement finally brings the anticipated backwards compatibility to the PlayStation 4. This comes as a strategy to take on Microsoft’s Xbox One, which already has the backwards compatibility to support some dated titles.
