Sony to make PS2 games compatible with PS4

Sony has plans to make some PlayStation 2 games playable on the PlayStation 4. It looks like PS4 gamers will get to enjoy a handful of known PS2 classics on their console.
As listed on the Pan European Game Information council, the PS2 games included in this latest move from Sony are "Ape Escape 2," "Twisted Metal: Black" and "Dark Cloud 2." Although it is expected that these games will be for a digital-only distribution, they could also be part of something bigger, such as Sony's effort on backward compatibility for its current-generation console.
"I totally understand pople asking for it," Shuhei Yoshia, the President of Worldwide Studios of Sony, said, according to Games Radar. "If it was easy, we would have done that! But our focus is creating PS4 games and adding new services."
"Remaking games on PS4 makes the games even better, with 'The Last of Us,'" he added. "You can play at 60 frames per second. The same goes for 'Dark Souls 2.' Actually, I just finished 'Dark Souls 2' again on PS4."
While Sony is hard at work on HD remakes of some classic games from last generation's consoles, Microsoft is busy gearing itself towards launching backward compatibility for the Xbox One. It is said that Microsoft is going to launch the new feature on the same day it will release the console's new Windows 10 Experience, which has already been slated for November. This was confirmed by Xbox Director of Program Management Mike Ybarra last week.
"At launch, you will be able to play over 100 Xbox 360 games on Xbox One with hundreds more in the months to come," Ybarra confirmed, according to Xbox News. "This includes the added benefit of Xbox One features, including screenshots, streaming, and game DVR - for your favorite Xbox 360 games."
