PlayStation president of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has spoken about the prices of newly-released PS2 games on PS4. In the recent PlayStation Nation podcast Yoshida commented that the emulation of the games, which updates the available titles with 1080p resolution with 60 FPS, isn’t cheap. He also took into account quality testing, licensing, Trophies, and Share functionalities. Yoshida said “it takes us time and cost. So we felt that we should charge.” Yoshida also said prices for current games may eventually go down.
Emulated PS2 games on PS4, which include Rogue Galaxy and Dark Cloud 2, currently range from $10-$15. These titles are separate from the PS2 Classics available on PS3.
