    In other news, starting tomorrow, you can buy games you may already own on the PS2 instead of just playing them.
    Did I get that right? Or does it support playing games you bought years ago in physical format?

    What is your source? If you are going to post USN, you must have a source.

    Slightly steep prices, it seems. Will they look pretty upscaled and all?

    So, you can't play your already own games. Kind of disappointing.

    Looks awesome, I did not expect this so soon. Come on Burnout Revenge and I can die happy.

    So in other words i can't play my disc based PS2 games and i saw somewhere that PS2 Classics will not make the jump over, so if a PS2 game comes out on PS4 and you already have it as a PS2 Classic? Pay for the game again

    I'm really glad these will be upscaled and have trophy support. I'll definitely be getting some of these like Dark Cloud.

    Told you so. Sony would not allow its customers to play their PS2 game discs because it's what happened before.

    You would think at least PS2 classic would crossover.

    I don't see why anyone is getting upset about having to buy the game again, if you want to play it on the new hardware. This is exactly the same issue with re-buying PSP games on the Vita. What, if any, solution can you come up with that allows you to what, serialize your existing PS2 copies? You can't, they were made for the PS2. If you want to play them, use a PS2. Sony is offering us upscaled, trophy supported PS2 classics for a price. If you don't like it, dig out your PS2.

    Not even close to the same thing. The PS2 is still only crunching numbers at an SD resolution, the "upscaler" displays the image across the whole screen; jaggies and everything.

    This is awesome I'll probably get Dark Cloud and Rogue Galaxy. I'd like to see them bring the Onimusha games over too.

    If they are announcing this already ahead of PSX tomorrow then just think what else they have yet ro reveal.

    Why would you need to "serialize" PS2 games to use discs? Just treat it like any other disc based game, pop in the disc when you play.

    Trophy support? Most worthless thing ever. Upscaled? Do you know how much work upscaling takes? None, it's a function of the hardware. If they were uprezed that might make a slight difference, but it's still not something that would need to be done to games individually (see PCSX2 or whatever it's called).

    I don't like it, and I don't have to dig out my PS2 because it's never not been out. Also, I'll play them on my CFW PS3 slim where every PS2 game I've bothered to try works nearly flawlessly, showing just how money grubbing this sort of thing is. There's no reason every PS3 shouldnt' have PS2 BC, and there's no reason PS4 shouldn't work with games you already own too.

    I'm not mad, btw, I never expected Sony to behave otherwise, I'm just pointing things out.
