The PlayStation 4 has had a great amount of success this year and it will probably continue to have it in the years to come, but the truth is that the PlayStation 2 is legendary. The sales that the latter console scored are beyond the wildest dreams and it will take Sony a few more years to at least equal them. Nonetheless, Sony is planning on releasing a PlayStation 2 emulator for the current PS 4, something that the older generation might look forward to.
The tricky thing about this piece of news is that Sony did not announce it, but people who have been dealing with Sony and their past are quite sure that this feature is going to be added sooner rather than later. It makes sense, right? Sold millions of games, made millions upon millions of dollars, the PlayStation 2 is such a gold mine that it has to make some kind of comeback.
The first announcement was made in January 2014, when the community was expecting this feature to be a very real thing, when Sony themselves announced that this would happen, but almost two years have passed since then and many of the players have lost hope. Because let’s face it: if we are going to see some PlayStation 2 games with neat graphics that is going to be very sweet, but we are most likely going to see PS 2 games with PS 2 graphics which look a little shinier. That’s nothing special.
What really got people excited now is the new Star Wars Legacy bundle, which seems to have some games form the PlayStation 2 platform, but they are ported on the PlayStation 4. If Sony are making this move now it means that they might be up to something, but we still need some more evidence than that, of course.
Sadly, there is not much to go on apart from that, so the only thing that we have to see is whether Sony are going to make an official announcement or not. The company is well-known for its serious approach in terms of quality and if Sony promised something, we are most likely going to get it. The PlayStation 2 was legendary and it would be an awesome experience to have it back on a better and faster platform.
