Report: PS4 Won’t Be Able to Read PlayStation 2 Discs.

When exactly Sony is planning to announce Dark Cloud for the PlayStation 4 isn’t clear, but the leak may mean a major backwards compatibility reveal at the PlayStation Experience on Saturday. But although many have begun to assume Sony is on the cusp of announcing backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 2, and possibly 3, the small print for Dark Cloud suggests otherwise. Additional enhanced features include Shareplay (Active PS Plus membership may be required), Remote Play, Activity Feeds, and Second Screen support for game manuals through the PS Vita system or PlayStation App,” read the description, as reported by Gematsu. “Copyright 2011 Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Since there’s nothing unusual about Dark Cloud, in terms of technology or licensing, the natural assumption is that this small print will follow for all other PlayStation 2 games.

The screenshot was taken from a YouTube video by Twitter user BradazKing, that Sony mistakenly put up early, and confirms other features of PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility, namely 1080p resolution upscaling, and support for Trophies, Remote Play, Share Play, and displaying the game manual on a second screen. PS2 Classics and PS2-formatted discs are incompatible with the PS4 system.” In other words, you aren’t going to be able to just stuff an old PS2 game into your PS4 and expect it to play, which is different than how Sony rival Microsoft is handling backwards compatibility between the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.
