If It's True, Which PS2 Games Would You Most Welcome On PS4?

Looks like PS2 games may soon be playable on PS4.

More evidence has come to light supporting the idea that some classic titles may be available on PlayStation 4 in due time; the latest piece of news involves the system's upcoming firmware update 3.00.

Previously, we'd heard that both Twisted Metal: Black and Ape Escape 2 had been rated for PS4, so if this is really happening, the question is obvious: Which PS2 titles do you most want to see?

What with all the HD upgrades, remasters and remakes this generation, it actually makes the decision a little tougher. I mean, we already got several Final Fantasy updates - like Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and what seems to be the inevitable Final Fantasy XII HD Remaster - and we can't wait to see the Ratchet & Clank remake coming next year. Yes, there were a lot of huge PS2 games that have received the "modernizing" treatment but of the ones that haven't, which should be playable on PS4?

I'm thinking they should give us all the Onimusha titles. I really miss that series; I played every one through to completion and didn't regret a second. I still say Onimusha 3: Demon Siege has one of the best intro CGIs of any game ever. Then there are other lost gems like the first Red Faction, Medal of Honor: Frontline and Jak and Daxter. Don't forget the PS2 had a ton of quirky cult classics like Katamari Damacy and Gitaroo-Man as well. There are just so many to choose from; remember, we're talking about a console that went strong for over a decade. Yep, lots of titles.

Which ones would you be most likely to revisit on PS4?

Pretty much anything FPS on PS2 would make me puke today.

Onimisha's intro is very cool. One can watch it already from their PS4's web browser. Check it out on YouTube!

Jak and Daxter was great but I already have the HD collection on PS3

The Bouncer, The Getaway, Silent Hill 2, 3 & 4, Onimusha series, Siren 1 & 2, Haunting Ground, Clock Tower 3, Primal, Rule of Rose, Shadow of Rome and Bloody Roar.

most of them probably won't make it though sadly.

I think SONY should focus on the more obscure titles as most of the big popular PS2 classics already got HD releases on PS3.

That was the first game that came into my mind. The Onimusha series rock! I'd like to see some of the Ace Combat titles too.

Wasn't it Demon Siege?

As far as Onimusha goes, I agree. I'd also like to replay Dark Cloud and actually finish Rogue Galaxy.

^1.5 and 2.5 have the "Main entries" in the series in them, but 2.8 has the most recent title on 3DS in HD, as well as new cinematics from the lore of the series and an entirely new chapter taking place after Birth By Sleep but before the original Kingdom Hearts.

I agree Ben, Onimusha 3 has one of the sickest intro videos of all time!

I would like to see Tenchu 3, Rogue Galaxy, More shin Megami games, annd yeah there are probably more that I'm forgetting.

Most of the good games have gotten HD remakes though.

Rogue Galaxy, Star Ocean: Til the End of Time, Radiata Stories, Dark Cloud 1 & 2, Suikoden 3-5, the Onimusha series, Drakengard, and a good deal more. There's some solid gold on the PS2 for sure.

For me I really want the Xenosaga trilogy. Reason being here in the UK we only got part two... I'm being serious, we never got part one or part three. So now we just have this middle section which holds no value what so ever. I'd like to actually experience these games, they never even reached PSN releases on PS3 :(

Isn't the PS2 region free? Could always order them from the US/Canada/Australia.

I'm sure someones corrected you but Ben, it's "Onimusha 3: Demon Siege"

And yes Onimusha, is the very first thing that comes to mind. Tenchu Wrath of Heaven would be nice as the 360 exclusive killed the series. Gauntlet Dark Legacy would be freaking awesome as well. Crap, I should start buying ps2 games in case this is legit because people will raise the prices on ps2 games.

I really hope its legit. Playing ps2 games with a ps4 controller just sounds...incredible.

Wait...why would prices of ps2 games go up? This isn't enabling ps2 DISCS is it? I thought it was just from the PS store?

Soul Reaver 2, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven and Drakan: The Ancients' Gate.

Also count me in on the Onimusha love. Never finished the series, but the first one was killer and I liked the second. Wouldn't mind checking the rest out. Almost picked up the PC port of Demon Siege but everything I read about it said it was complete balls, like unplayable.

I'd like gameshark support...

It makes games like amplitude or frequency more enjoyable since i can't unlock bonus songs since the game is brutal on the higher difficulties.

I miss codebreakers and gamesharks to use after finishing a game.
