As Sony continues to celebrate the PlayStation’s 20th anniversary, they are going to launch select fan-favorite PlayStation 2 titles on the PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store on December 5th, 2015 in North America and Europe.

They are getting the ball rolling with these eight fan-favorites:
- Dark Cloud — $14.99
- Grand Theft Auto III — $14.99
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City — $14.99
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas — $14.99
- Rogue Galaxy — $14.99
The Mark of Kri — $14.99
- Twisted Metal: Black — $9.99
- War of the Monsters — $9.99
With each of the titles you will get to experience these PlayStation 2 games like you never have before, with 1080p graphics, remote play, Live Broadcast, Share Play, Second Screen support, as well as a full set of Trophies for each title.
Sony has pledged to bring even more PlayStation 2 games to PlayStation 4 in the future on a regular basis. <original story>
