PS4 May Get PS1/PS2 Emulator
Alright Sony fanboys, get in line and shut up.
An anonymous source has alluded to Digital Foundry that emulation for the PlayStation 1 and 2 is headed to the PlayStation 4. This would be handled actively via software similar to the PS3 and that “Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to run without the blurry upscaling seen on PS3, suggesting that native HD resolutions are being targeted.”
This sounds absolutely amazing as the PS4 currently lacks any way to play past Sony games both physically-though they can be used for upgrading, and digitally, though they can be read. Keep in mind it’s all speculation and rumors, however, the PlayStation Now service will effectively work in much the same way though will definitely require an internet connection, something emulation may solve by providing local access.
When Sony has an official announcement on this, Gamesta will have your info so stay tuned.
