Sony Announces PS4 Backward Compatibility


Following the launch of Xbox One Backward Compatibility about four weeks ago, Sony is the latest one to join the Backward Compatibility party, by announcing that current-gen PlayStation owners will now be able to enjoy and play their favorite PS2 games thanks to its own Backward Compatibility feature.

The first playable PS2 games on PS4 will include:
  • Dark Cloud - $14.99
  • Grand Theft Auto III - $14.99
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - $14.99
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - $14.99
  • Rogue Galaxy - $14.99
  • The Mark of Kri - $14.99
  • Twisted Metal: Black - $9.99
  • War of the Monsters - $9.99
The studio has also announced that PS4 Backward Compatibility will feature:
  • Rendered 1080p gameplay 
  • Trophy support
  • Remote Play
  • Live Broadcast
  • Share Play
  • Activity Feeds
  • Second Screen support for game manuals with PS Vita or PS App
PS4 Backward Compatibility is now available in US and Europe. Unfortunately, unlike Xbox One Backward Compatibility, PlayStation users must purchase PS2 games from the PlayStation Store in order to take advantage of this feature.
