As most of you know, PlayStation Now is an upcoming service that will offer a selection of PS1, PS2 and PS3 titles to be played through the cloud on PS4. Whilst Sony stated this does not in anyway make the PS4 backwards compatible, a new rumour has been circling on the web that Sony has an emulation software in the works according to a source who spoke to Eurogamer. Could we soon be able to use our PS1 & PS2 game discs on PS4?
For those who don’t have the bandwidth capabilities to use PlayStation Now or for those, like myself, who have many old PS1 & PS2 games stashed away, being able to play classics on the PS4 can only be a positive addition to the new consoles’ feature set.
What’s more is that the rumour also mentions that this new emulator will feature a more advanced up-scale system than that of the PS3’s, resulting in a smoother performance for your old games.
It’s important to stress that this is nothing but speculation at the moment, but the prospect of being able to re-play your favourite titles or having the ability play classics that you never experienced from two or three generations ago is very exciting.
