PS2 Remote Play

9 replies 2161 views Edited Mar 14, 2012

Does anyone else want the ability to play PS2 games on the Vita via Remote Play?

I REALLY do. The fact that it can't is lame and should be patched. It plays PS1 games, so why not PS2?

My PS3 is the original 60GB unit, and I know MANY PS3 users who also own this unit, and I think we deserve this feature.

Opinions anyone?

The same reason it can't play PS3 games.

It's still running on the PSP based remote play I think. So only what you could do on the PSP's remote play can you do on the Vita right now (for now at least)

Whether or not they add PS2 capability for remote play, that's yet to be seen

I hope that's the reason, because it would make me sad if they didn't update it to play PS2 games over Remote Play simply because only a small amount of people have Backwards Compatible PS3's versus non-B/C units.

Please enable this feature Sony! I would love you even more for it! <3

That would be nice, but what about all of my PS2 games on DVD?

They would have to patch the emulator for it and as it is no longer supported by Sony I doubt it will ever happen.

Thats not possible.

Vita is not powerful enough to emulate PS2.

I do want the ability to use RemotePlay in EVERYTHING. DVDs, Blurays, PS2 games, PS3 games, Home, Netflix, everything. There is no reason not to have this. We own the DVDs/Blurays, both devices playing them, and in most cases the network connecting them. We aren't making a copy of it anymore than playing them on TV makes a copy. And no one would use a packet sniffer to make a low res, low quality version when it's easier to rip the disc itself. Doing PS2 games would be no harder than it was to do PS1 games. And hackers were able to enable RemotePlay in all PS3 games

Sony is about making money but not about how much work they put into making that money. They would rake in money hand over fist if they allowed everything to work on the Vita. PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3 remote play discs etc.... I know I would pay for any of my old games to be on my Vita. If Sony would put some effort into backwards compatibility, Vita's would be sold out everywhere and backordered.
