Video shows PS2 emulation for PS4 using Dark Cloud before being pulled

It’s possible Sony will officially detail its PS2 emulation for PlayStation 4 tomorrow during its PlayStation Experience keynote. Evidence of this comes from an accidental button push on YouTube showing Dark Cloud running on the console.

The video has since been pulled, but not before various folks on the Internet captured screengrabs of the description under the video.

Over on reddit, user UberNick_ posted the grabs which are below.

Here’s the one showing the game:


Here’s the one with the video description:


The screengrab notes the game features 1080p up-rendering, Trophy support, Shareplay, Remote Play, Activity Feed and Second Screen support for game manuals.

It was also noted the emulation would not support the player’s library of game discs or PS2 Classics. In other words, this is not the same as backwards compatibility, as many who use their older PSP handhelds as an emulator can attest.

While we cannot confirm the report at this time due to the video vanishing, it seems legit.
