Rumor: PS1 / PS2 Games Heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via Emulation

400°
25w ago - Today Eurogamer (linked above) reports on rumors of PS1 / PS2 games heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via emulation with details below.

To quote: Backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony's streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the "gameplay over IP" cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony's latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.

While Sony effectively phased out hardware emulation of previous platforms during the early stages of the PS3 era, it has worked consistently on opening up the PlayStation back catalogue to publishers via software emulation and PSN downloads.

Internally, PlayStation 3's firmware contains emulators for PS1, PS2 and even the handheld PSP, while Vita is capable of running PS1 and Vita titles virtually flawlessly using the same technology. In short, there's a proven codebase that can only get better for the vastly more powerful PS4.

Our information suggests that the same internal emulator strategy is planned for PlayStation 4, and we understand that Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to...

To quote: PS1 To PS3 – Beta 10

This application/tool will take your PS1 ISO or BIN/CUE game file(s) and create a PKG to install, This created PKG will now make that PS1 game direct boot from the XMB. This app uses the code and PS1 process from IrisManager and has modified/added some code to achieve the task of auto booting on the XMB.

You also have the ability in the GUI to change name, add custom art (ICON0 and PIC1) Sound, and animated icons (ICON1.PAM) to the PKG before final creation..

Also from MaXsPoT: Playing PS1 Copy Games on Unmodded PS3 Super Slim - Disk Swap

Here is a video demonstration of playing copied Crash Bandicoot 3 PS1 game on unmodded PS3 super slim.

Here's a method of booting a copy of a PS1 game without modding the PS3 Super Slim. Just simple swapping.

Sorry for the bad quality, there was something wrong with the camera's settings.

How to do this trick:

1- You need an original PS1 game that has the same region of the PS3.
2- A copy PS1 game with the same region as the PS3.
3- Putting some thing (piece of cardboard) to press the things that make...
 

Video: PS Vita Running PSX / PS1 Games with eCFW TN-C Demo

550°
84w ago - Following up on their previous update, today [Register or Login to view links] has shared a PlayStation Vita demo video and guide on running PSX / PS1 games at full speed (with no sound) via eCFW TN-C on Sony PS Vita Firmware 2.01 below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

To quote: In this video I show you that its possible to run PS1 games at the TN-C CFW. This is also working at the lower firmwares, you don't need the upcoming 2.01 exploit for it.

Just put the 2 PRX files into your exploit savegame folder and PSX (PS1) games should be working from the TNMenu. Other menues arent tested yet.

This should be working with every TN-C release for the PS Vita. The PS Vitas OFW shouldnt be important, it should be working for 1.6x, 1.80, 1.81 and 2.0x firmwares (avaible soon).

Greetings The Z
