PlayStation 4 is rumoured to be receiving PSone and PS2 classic support soon, together with 1080p rendering for select titles, according to an industry insider.

 

It comes from tipster Ahsan Rasheed, who has an impeccable track record for revealing accurate leaks. However as always, treat this firmly as rumour for now.

He took to Twitter to discuss some new PS4 insight he claims to have gleaned. Our guess is he heard this through the GDC grapevine, but it’s anyone’s guess right now.

It wasn’t a big leap to suggest that PSone and PS2 classics would be making their way to PS4′s PSN eventually, but the 1080p rendering line is interesting. Where this fits within Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming strategy remains to be seen.

Rasheed then turned his attention to Sony’s Project Morpheus VR headset, stating that Sony wants to hear as much criticism of the device from third-party developers, most likely to help improve the product.

It’s not a stretch to imagine Sony taking an Oculus approach to Project Morpheus, by inviting developers to test and appraise the tech to better hone it. PS4 was created using this approach, and it seems to have worked well for the company.

Wait. Is this like the Playstation Now from Gaikai? Like we able to stream previous playstation games on our ps4? Or is this different?


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

I would assume as opposed to needing PlayStation Now (Gaikai).

PS4: PSone & PS2 emulation has mixed results, disc-based backwards compatibility possible

 

PlayStation 4 looks like it could be getting a PSone and PS2 support announcement this year, but an industry insider has claimed that Sony’s tech is currently coming back with mixed results. Disc-based backwards compatibility could also come to the console. It follows claims made by reputable industry tipster Ahsan “Thuway” Rasheed, who said that PS4 will soon support some PSone and PS2 classic titles at native 1080p. However, he now claims that the high-end rendering only works with some titles, while others are coming back choppy and unimpressive. He elaborated on the matter in this string of tweets:
