Eight classic PS2 games launch on PlayStation 4 tomorrow


Joystiq News

A few weeks ago Sony acknowledged its plan to get PS2 games running on the PlayStation 4 and today it announced which ones are first. According to exec Shuhei Yoshida, the company will celebrate its "PS2 heritage" by launching eight games for purchase in North America and Europe tomorrow: Dark Cloud, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Rogue Galaxy, The Mark of Kri, Twisted Metal: Black, and War of the Monsters. It's similar to the backwards compatibility that the Xbox One just added for Xbox 360 games, but there is one big difference: you'll need to buy these games again. Most of them will cost $15 in the US while a few cost $10, but you can see the prices (and a trailer) after the break.
