Crash Bandicoot PS4 hopes with PS1 emulation

We have some pleasing news for those of you who have bought a PS4 system with the hope that PS4 PS2 and PS1 classics support will come via official emulation.

Sony has their PlayStation Now service on the way of course later this year, but we’ve heard an insider update from a source who states that local PS4 PS2 and PS1 compatibility is coming too.

Not only is it coming, but it is also coming with 1080p too. What this means, is that Sony could offer games such as Crash Bandicoot digitally on the PSN, but enhanced on the PS4 with 1080p visuals.

As you can see from the Tweet above, the information has once again come from industry leaker Ahsan Rasheed who usually has a very reliable track record in revealing information early.

There is no confirmation of dates yet, but just the thought of being able to play select PS1 and PS2 titles on your PS4 in 1080p should be more than enough to get you excited.

You’ll also notice that Sony looks finally ready to give consumers the highly requested 3D Blu-Ray player support on the PS4 as well – a well documented feature that was missing at launch.

It will be interesting to see how much these classic games cost to buy from PSN and how it will work as an alternative to the already confirmed PlayStation Now streaming service.

How much would you be willing to pay to play Crash Bandicoot on PS4 with your friends, as an example?
