Hello everyone. As we continue our celebration of PlayStation’s 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. Above and beyond the technical innovations that made PS2 stand apart is the caliber of amazing and much-loved games, such as Dark Cloud, Twisted Metal Black, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas just to name a few.
To celebrate our PS2 heritage, I am excited to announce that as of 8.00pm GMT tomorrow, 5th December, you will be able to purchase and play a range of PS2 games on your PlayStation 4!
We are kicking things off by launching with eight fan favourites.
- Dark Cloud (SCE Worldwide Studios)
- Grand Theft Auto 3 (Rockstar Games)
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Rockstar Games)
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (Rockstar Games)
- Rogue Galaxy (SCE Worldwide Studios)
- The Mark of Kri (SCE Worldwide Studios)
- War of the Monsters (SCE Worldwide Studios)
- Twisted Metal: Black (SCE Worldwide Studios)
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, Activity Feeds, and Second Screen support for game manuals with PlayStation Vita or PlayStation App, as well as Live Broadcast and Share Play.
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?
