    PS1 i can understand, but saying ps2 games are ancient are bold words for someone in God of War 2 range

    The thing is with these emulators "playable" doesn't mean it runs perfect. There's always small issues that isn't really that bad when you're playing a pirated game. But if you're gonna play a game you paid for it better be perfect.
    Backwards compatibility like this is expensive, so unless they somehow make that money back they won't bother implementing it. And when they do bother they will just make very specific emulators for very specific games that they will sell to you again, and again, and again.

    Old fat PS3s had hardware to play PS2 games, Slim and later do not. PS1 games still work by using emulation.

    Your reply has zero to do with mine. I said it didn't work from external. I'm pretty sure original PS3 that had PS2 support did not work from external.

    There's always emulators for that, but who still has ps1 discs anyways. As long as it's ps4 compatible!

    Frogger? Really? I played Digimon World 1 a lot and I played 3 several times. The card game in 3 can be completely skipped and is better to do so by never getting the starter pack. 2 was... a bit frustrating but fun.

    Crash Bandicoot: Warped is definitely one of the best games for the PS1.

    Maybe they have plans to release a lot more PS1/PS2/PS3 remasters. Otherwise it makes no sense why they wouldn't just reuse the emulators they already have.

    I agree with that, but I would prefer using emulators.

    They may want to do that, especially since many people have been interested in emulating previous titles. Maybe it will be like on the switch where you get monthly retro games when you pay for a monthly membership? That would be smart.

    If they were going to release emulated games through a subscription or the store then it would still count as BC, wouldn't it?
    Plus, PS+ already offers "free" games.

    Sony does not own bluray. It's owned by a series of companies of which Sony is a member. They have to pay licensing fees just like everyone else.

    They are the founders of the Bluray Association (other companies simply joined), they don't have to pay any fee for their own technology.

    not just discs but also the digital stuff on your account works, too.

    At least when it was games with gold, you could keep the games given away, even if your sub lapses, on the 360.

    Sony never let anyone keep games on PS Plus.

    Emulation is hard, apparently, can't even write their own PS1 emulator for the PS1 Classic lol.

    How can people even buy this crappy console is beyond me, you need to be a super fanboy, everyone with a brain will go with Series X it's the complete package.

    So your complaint is, they are overdelivering on their original promise. Ok....
