Does PS4 Need PS2 Classics? The Short Answer Is "Yes"
This week, we received some encouraging news that hinted at the possibility of PS2 classics on PlayStation 4.
I have no idea if this will happen but I do know one thing: I hope it does.
Personally, I think PS4 should be able to play PS2 and PS1 games, and I don't care at all about PS3 titles. Why? I've said it many times before: Because gameplay-wise, not much has changed this generation when compared to last. All we really have are bigger and better-looking versions of games we've been playing for more than a few years. I don't really have a problem with this but if I want distinctly different gameplay mechanics, I have to return to the PS1 and PS2 generations.
That's where I can find turn-based RPGs, old-school arcade sports and racing games (no idea why they've basically disappeared now), and other "old" styles of gameplay that we just don't have anymore. Do we have titles that plays anything even remotely like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night? No. We have some small downloadable and mobile productions that sort of do, but that's hardly the same thing.
Therefore, if you want the best of the best in the PlayStation universe and you want that widespread variety, I say the PS4 should have the ability to play both PS2 and PS1 games.
