    Sony's Playstation Blogcast has announced that PaRappa the Rapper 2 will be joining the list of PS2 games that are available on Playstation 4. The game will likely cost in the range of $9.99-14.99 like the previous backwards compatible titles, and will also feature trophy support.

    Well, technically they announced it back when they announced the other PS2 games :P King of Fighters 2000 is coming eventually too

    But yeah, neat etc etc. Twisted Metal Black played like a dream, so I imagine this will, too.

    Got my hopes up thinking it was a new Parappa the Rapper game but after reading the whole title it's just another PS2 remastered game (not Backwards Compatible since it's emulated and doesn't use PS2 discs to play) for PS4. Hm.

    I was gonna say that. We certainly don't consider Wii/U's VC as backwards compatibility.

    It is not backward compatibility , it is emulation.

    Kingdom hearts can't be distributed Digitally so don't get your hopes up on it. That and Steam release.

    was reffering to not getting your hopes up for a steam release. Don't drink so much rum, Jack.

    Neat! I don't have a PS4 but this game was pretty fun. Maybe they could bring back the MediEvil series too!

    P.S. I love how you used the screenshot with Lammy in the background, Maybe they should bring back UmJammer Lammy too!

    As far as I am aware there was never a MediEvil game released on the PS2.

    Correct. They did however remaster the original game for PSP so if they improved upon that with the right analogue stick to control the camera it would definitely be worth buying.

    Don't they release PS1 games anymore? Sorry for my ignorance, I don't have a PS4.
    Resurrection. The only UMD game I bough for PSP.

    If they ever announce MediEvil 3 I will definitely get a PS4.

    They have them for ps3 and vita/tv, and continue to release them. But they don't have any for ps4. Because.....reasons.

    They're releasing slightly updated ps2 classics on the ps4 (and calling it backward compatibility. because...reasons), though these are completely separate from ps2 classics on ps3. The ps2 classics on the ps3 are 1:1 to the original ps2 games. The ps2 classics on the ps4 have some upscaling and other tweaks, though I haven't looked into how much work has been done on all of them.

    I think you can play ps1, ps2, and ps3 games on psnow though, but that's a bit of a different beast, if I'm not mistaken.
