After a series of rumors in the last few days, Sony has officially confirmed that a PlayStation 2 emulator is in the works that will allow old games to function on the PS4.
Rumors first surfaced when the PS4 Star Wars bundle was released on November 17 alongside Star Wars: Battlefront. The bundle included the PS2 titles Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars: Racer Revenge and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.
Following the release of the Star Wars bundle, rumors began to circulate among gamers and the media that Sony was working on making the PlayStation 4 backwards compatible.
Jake Muncy of WIRED officially confirmed from through a Sony representative that they are experimenting with emulators in an attempt to bring PS2 games to the PS4.
The announcement has been well received by gamers who have been demanding PS4 backwards compatibility for some time. Many are also hoping that this would also open the possibilities for a PS1 emulator.
However, Sony has said nothing regarding the development of a PlayStation or PlayStation 3 emulator. It's also unknown when the PS2 emulator will be ready for launch.
The second system of the Sixth Generation era; PlayStation 2 is the best selling console of all time having sold over 150 million units along with 1.52 billion game titles.
