As the gamer, I am the big fan of Sony Playstation since I played the Silent Hill 2 released in 2001, GTA vice city 2002, Shadow of the Colossus 2005. The best and high qualities of detailing were made in these games which make these game PS2 top rated games. It is brilliant way as Playstation introduce its games with the unique style that creates the history and every time I play the game I feel like 17 again.   There are many other games of PS2 & PS3 which are still on to ranked and played by third-party PS emulators on a computer system but the real feel of playing PS game is with PlayStation console. So PlayStation Fans are expecting for PS4 Backwards Compatibility for PS3 & PS2.

It was very surprising for me when the Microsoft Xbox has officially announced that the Original Xbox game titles can play on Xbox One Backwards Compatibility in 2013 then further they added some of the best public demand game of Xbox 360 for Xbox One and Xbox one X user to play on the latest device. Millions of PlayStation users were expecting that Sony will also launch ps4 backwards compatibility PS3 old version console games along with PS2.

But it was clearly said by the PlayStation 4 that they do not launch the backwards compatibility PS4 with any old version of PlayStation consoles original game title. It was to lose determination for PlayStation fans including me in 2014 that we will never play even PS3 original games directly in PlayStation 4 with official Sony Playstation permission.

In order to maintain the fans list, Sony introduces the “PlayStation Now” which is the cloud-based technology. This streaming service allows the PS3 games to stream on the PS4 console. By the end of 2015, Sony gives more surprising to PlayStation4 users by adding PS2 backward compatibility for PS4 and also republished dark Cloud and GTA III type of PS2 games on PS4 Backwards Compatibility via Playstation store. It was official first published in USA and Europe for PS4 console to play the PS2 version Gameplay on it. Sony provides more support to PlayStation 2 games in order to run on PS4 console with the help of software emulation and never try to remastered PS2 gamers.

What Features Updated In PS4?

In order to run the PS2 games on PS4 via software emulation, there are many updated are made to access different type of PS4 features such as:

Trophies:

Trophies are in-game honors displayed to gamers for hitting explicit targets or achieving certain achievements (for example finishing a troublesome dimension or vanquishing a specific number of foes). There are four unique sorts of the trophy granted. A bronze, silver, or gold trophy is dependent upon the trouble of the achievement, with each reward adding to a dimension framework joined to a player’s profile.

Share Play:

Share Play enables clients to welcome an online companion to join their play session by means of spilling, regardless of whether they don’t claim a duplicate of the game. Clients can pass control of the game totally to the remote client, or share in agreeable multiplayer as though they were physically present. Offer Play requires a PlayStation Plus membership and must be utilized for one hour on end.

Broadcasting:

By squeezing the Share catch in-game and choosing Broadcast Gameplay, clients can interface their PS4 with a Twitch or Ustream record and after that stream video immediately. You can likewise utilize Playstation Eye with this element, which will give you the alternative to either be empower or cripple this element.

Remote Play:

Sony has the desire to make entire PS4 recreations playable on PlayStation Vita. Engineers can include Vita-explicit controls for use through Remote Play. This element was later extended to empower PS4 Remote Play usefulness on Microsoft Windows PCs and on Apple OS X Macs. The update, discharged in April 2016, takes into account Remote Play usefulness on PCs running Windows 8.1, Windows 10, OS X Yosemite, and OS X El Capitan. Remote Play bolsters goals choices of 360p, 540p, &720p outline rate choices of 30-60 FPS. There is a 1080p resolution is accessible on PS4 Pro, and the DualShock 4 can be associated by means of USB.

Second-screen:

Cell phones and tablets can associate with the PlayStation 4 as second screen gadgets, and can likewise wake the reassure from rest mode. A Sony Xperia cell phone, tablet or the PlayStation Vita can be utilized for spilling interactivity from the comfort to handheld, enabling bolstered diversions to be played remotely from around a family unit or far from home.

Is PS4 backwards compatibility with PS3?

It was very loud from Playstation Fans that Xbox One Backwards Compatibility with Xbox and Xbox 360 they why not Sony Playstation allow the PS4 Backwards Compatibility with PS3 or PS2. The company never discusses in details regarding this topic but as we see the engineering of Microsoft Xbox initial stage till latest console and compare with Sony Playstation till PS4 then we will see that there is the huge difference in the making of products. Xbox repeat some feature with hardware built-in console, in this way the Xbox One backwards compatibility is possible.

As far as PlayStation making, so in every Sony Playstation Console, there is the upgrade of hardware and update of software version which makes PlayStation step forward into new technology instead of going back in time. Sony PlayStation knows that their fans are very much attached with the PS2 & PS3 games and for that, they updated with the cloud-based streaming service in order to PS4 Backwards Compatibility for some PS3 & PS2 games. Company is also working on Public demand best PS2 & PS3 high rated games with republished and play on PS4.

Along with that, the Classic re-released for the PS3 and original PS2 disc games are still not PS4 backwards compatible. It does not mean that Sony Playstation does not prepare for something huge for its millions of fans.
