Sony had been working on utilizing PS2 emulation technology to bring PS2 game titles to the current generation console, PS4. Now Sony is bringing back the memories and nostalgia for playstation and announced  that eight PS3 games will be made available for PS4. 

Now PS4 owners will be able to download and play PS2 games via PlayStation store in the U.S and Europe. Unfortunately, this is limited to digital PS2 games purchased online via the PlayStation Network and you will not be able to use old PS2 discs.

"To celebrate our PS2 heritage, I'm excited to announce that starting tomorrow [December 5], you will be able to purchase and play PS2 games on your PS4 via PlayStation Store in the Americas and Europe," Yoshida's post reads on the PlayStation blog.

  • Rogue Galaxy — $14.99
  • The Mark of Kri — $14.99
  • Twisted Metal: Black — $9.99

Sony states that the old PS2 games will bring a whole new experience in the PS4. The games support 1080p/60fps, trophies and features unique to PS4 including Live Broadcast, Share Play, Remote Play, Activity, Second Screen -- and offers an upgraded gaming experience compared to PS One and PS2 Classics.

Furthermore Yoshida said that Sony will work tirelessly to out more PS2 titles for PS4 on a regular basis.
