I thought about starting a thread about this but I figured that it was just a tidbit of news that it didn't need s a whole thread.

So, first bit of news:

Low down: Uncertain if it will be disc support or digital only or both but it's a thing now. Well, officially. It's been a thing for almost 2 years now.

How will it have trophy support is what I want to know. I like the idea but it seems to me like it might not be as glamorous as immediate as what's been promised. I specially think that this is might be a bit much considering that there are 4,000 games on the PS2, add to that the possibility of the PS1 been ran on the PS4 and that's another 2,000 titles. Who's going to set up the trophies? Is it going to be up to each developer to do it for their games? What about studios that are long since defunct? That's a lot of games. I still play PS2 games and I don't do it for the trophies but I do feel like it's a bit unfair to exclude certain games from the list.

Do we really need trophies though?

They have currently issued a no comment on disc based emulation at the moment according to sources. Most are saying its likely to be digital only and this is the most realistic scenario. Not only this but they are likely to charge you for them again too on PSN.

PSYCHONAUTS 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You know what makes me mad? This is the kind of trailer that I want to not know what it is and when I see it I'd lose my skull and when you name the trailers I already know what it is. Happy as I am I feel the surprise was stolen from me.

Well, here are the bad news of the day. PS2 classics are now available for purchase via the PSN store. Some titles are up now but if you bought games on your PS3 or you have a disc for your PS2 they don't work on your PS4... What bulls***.
