Rumor: Sony is Working On A PS1 and PS2 Emulator For PS4

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...
Sony understands that PlayStation 4 owners want to play their favorite retro titles-from the PlayStation 1 to the PlayStation 3-so the development team has been hard at work making backwards compatibility happen. With regards to the PlayStation 3, Sony has implemented a new service known as PlayStation Now, which allows PS4 owners to stream PS3 titles through a cloud.

Now it seems like Sony has been working on an emulator for the PlayStation 4. This emulator will allow you to play PS1 and PS2 games on your PS4.

The software emulation will possibly even grant the title HD resolution without upscale, which has sometimes caused images we've seen on the PlayStation 3 to appear blurry. Sony has yet to officially announce this emulator, but since the outcry of backwards compatibility has been strong since the announcement of the PlayStation 4, it seems likely that they have something in the works.

We'll likely hear the announcement of any emulator this June during E3 2014. Until then, let us know i the comments which past generation video games you're interested in playing on the PS4. [via Eurogamer]
