Speculation suggests that Sony is developing a new PlayStation 2 emulator for its PS4 and PS5 consoles. If true, this would bolster Sony’s efforts in game preservation and backwards compatibility, currently focused mainly on titles available through PlayStation Plus. Presently, the PSN “Classics” library only supports PS1 and PSP games.
YouTuber Mystic recently claimed to have reliable information that Sony aims to enhance its PS Plus offerings by adding PS2 game support. This comes amidst a recent price hike for the PSN service, potentially indicating Sony’s plans to provide more value to subscribers.
Note: This information is still unconfirmed and should be treated as a rumor.
