Sony has shot down the “PS2 games on PlayStation Store?” rumor. For now.
The rumor started after last week’s big Sony press conference where it announced a PlayStation movie store. Some of the screens on display showed PS2 games as being on the store, but Sony chalked that up to a mistake.
At this point, we haven’t made any announcements, and there are no plans for PS2 downloadable titles on PS3.
So there you have it. I can’t imagine how Sony would get PS2 games running on the PS3 since backwards compatibility is now done via emulation.
But hey, I’m sure there’s many of you who wouldn’t mind playing some of the PS2 classics all over again, or for the first time.
