I discussed this with Zero over Twitter when the first wave came out and we both thought the same, if your playing a retro game you would talk about it in last retro game you were playing.

But with more and more coming with PEGI outing games, that some of you like myself recently in the VC version of this thread with Super Mario RPG wanting more info before buying and actually play.

I bring up PEGI as these have been leaked Siren, Ape Escape 3, Wild Arms 3, Primal and Okage: Shadow King plus Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits in the trailer still to come.

Anything there for anyone or know much about WA3 or Okage, I'm tempted by most with more info part from AE3 as I've never played a AE and it's never looked very appeeling (get it)

On a somewhat-related topic, is there any way to download PSone classics on a PS4? I couldn't find a way when I looked a few weeks back.

For PS2 Classics, Ape Escape 3 will probably warrant a look, as I love the original and thought the sequel was a solid effort. Parappa The Rapper 2 is well worth 8 if anybody's thinking about it.

Unfortunately not, they were threatening to make some PS1 stuff available via ps Now, but none of the past purchases carried forward as far as I'm aware.

Nothing on PS1 games as of yet and like Andy says all PlayStation Legacy stuff was meant to becoming to PSNOW. PS2 may still come to PSNOW as well but in there original form not up rendered in 1080p & with trophies but who knows.

I have tweeted using #ps2ps4 that want PS1 & PSP classics as I would play something like Crash Bandicoot 2 again with added trophies and I'm not even a big trophy guy but would make me go back.

The 3 Star Wars games are now out a long with Arc the Lad which does good but the big news

Psychonauts is coming to PS4 via PS2 classics, it's a game I've never played but people bang on about all the time. I like that Sony are/have brought more of the cult classic across, so far.

I've had it sitting in my Steam library for ages. With my laptop slowly dying a death, I might just give it a look on PS4.

Bear in mind that the PC version is considered far superior

Dark Chronicle AKA Dark Cloud 2 is coming next week, I like what I've play of the 1st and this one looks so much better due to the aesthetic also with all these Level-5 games and Ni No Kuni 2 coming.

Would anyone be shocked that my prediction of something coming back that isn't Crash Bandicoot being Dark Cloud 3 / reboot

I think a lot of people would welcome a new Dark Cloud game so that's not a bad shout.

I've not played Dark Chronicle but I've heard good things. I'd be well up for a new Dark Cloud game though.

We've just got a bunch of PS2 Classics like Wild Arms 3. There's now a few games that I like the look off but after the first drop of games my enthusiasm has waned to buy yet more games just to sit on the PS4 HDD and not get played.

That I'm now waiting for that big PS2 game to appear.

Cracking game. Splashdown was a top early PS2 game too.

I'll have to seek Splashdown out, and sit it proudly alongside other early PS2 greats like Sky Odyssey and NHL Hitz 2002.

Dark Chronicle is a fantastic game, but they kind of lost it with White Knight Chronicles. Still, I enjoyed Ni No Kuni so I can still hope if there was a Dark Cloud 3 it would be able to recapture the magic.

Level 5 constantly seem to have balancing issues which is the main problem.

The fact that I had to look that up before I remembered what it was says a lot to be honest.

Well we did cover it ages ago on Pod of War as forgotten classic and I think I put it my PS2 games I want on PS4 article, which was also mainly forgotten classics.

Quite a few of the games in that piece are now actually on PS4, yet I've only bought 2 of them.

I'm fond of Primal as I remember I got it as either a Birthday or Christmas present and I think it was sort of the last PS2 game I cared about before I came engrossed with the Xbox & Cube.

Sony, with a very generous use of the word 'classic', here. What I played of it back in the PS2 days was bang-average, and not at all memorable. Sony have got off to a pretty poor start with these PlayStation 2 games for PlayStation 4, in my opinion.

Most of the true classic have comeback already on PS3 and are on PSNOW for PS4 which guess Sony want's us to use for likes of Shadow of the Colossus AKA PS2's best game , that you only get some games that are more cult classics such as Dark Cloud and the GTA's series as Take-Two know people will buy them.

That's Ape Escape 2 out now, and you've all to go and download it for six quid. Right enough, it's basically the first game all over again, but it's great fun.

Sony are bringing what some would say are real classics to the PS4 and that's Jak & Daxter, Jak II, Jak 3 and Jak X.

I've never really played the Jak games part from the first for like a hour, so do sort want to go back to them but this is the thing these are on PS3 as a HD collection (part from X which will be on system other then the PS2 for the first time ever) which has remastered textures etc, 720p, 60fps and trophies and that can be played I think on PS4 via PSNOW.

These games coming are the PS2 originals sure now 1080p etc but still have PS2 textures etc, I do find it odd that some like these are the PS2 games then you've got PaRappa a PS1 game remastered on PSN.

It feels rather Nintendo'ish, got classic games people want but put out in some weird ways.

Also wheres Lost Frontier as sure it's a PSP game but was ported to PS2, why isn't that brought over as well whilst you're at it.

I occasionally look through the classics list and think about picking a couple up. But then I look at the price and, nope.

Fantasyland: I'd like to see a PS++ subscription that cost a little bit more than standard but gave people access to PS NOW and retro classics as a Netflix would. If something like that existed I'd be much more likely to finally play Dark Cloud.
