That's right! It's in the house!
Sony's new emulation solution to convert PS2 games to PS4 is starting to pick up some steam, with new titles having been announced the last 3 weeks. Next week will be no different, as Sony confirmed, during this week's Playstation Blogcast, that the next PS2 title being converted to PS4 will be 'Parappa The Rapper 2'. This is fun news, since 'Parappa 2' is one of those sequels just as good as the original game, and yet gets nowhere near the respect (a cursory glance around the internet about the news shows more people quoting the first game). It doesn't help that, as is surprisingly mentioned in the blogcast, even on backward compatible PS3s, the input lag of modern TVs makes the physical copy of the sequel "virtually unplayable".
The relevant segment is around the 12:33 mark of the podcast. No officially announcement of price, though no reason to expect it won't follow suit with the other releases so far (hovering around the $10-$15 range). It's definitely worth that amount. This stage where they rap about the greatness of noodles is worth $10 alone.
