The streaming versions are running on actual PS3 hardware. Never had a problem with anything streaming on PS Now. Works much better than GeForce.
Insomniac says it can’t. They have more experience with the hardware.
Odd they are leaving out A Crack in Time.
Pathetic, not just because streaming, but those PS3 remasters were awful. Need to make an updated PS2 emulator and bring those to the service. This franchise deserves so much better.
The fact they could release the native PS2 versions but...won't...only to give us the streaming PS3 versions, lmao.
The PS Plus Premium tier still feels such a waste of an opportunity. Clearly they weren't ready for that tier yet.
If by October 2023 tha doesn't change i'll buy renew Extra instead
It's already on PS Plus Premium, as the original PS.Blog post also states. Draugoth didn't quote the entire article in his post.
Sony's streaming works very well these days. I played through the entire game of Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus on PS Now about 2 years ago. More recently, I've been playing Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus in The Sly Collection on PS Plus Premium streaming. Both of those games are quite playable.
That said, I think Sony should've dusted off their PS2 emulator for PS4/PS5, so that they could give us the PS2 versions instead. By doing this, it would create a new PS4/PS5 executable package which would (theoretically) be more "future-proof" if subsequent Sony systems continue to evolve from the PS4/PS5 architecture. It would also enable the user to choose either downloading or streaming, as opposed to the current setup where the PS3 games can only be streamed. The PS2 emulator also allows them to run the games in higher resolutions, and use PS4/PS5 OS features like screen shot/video capture, Remote Play, and SharePlay.
Sony should have also done this (use the PS2 versions) for the games in The Sly Collection, and should consider doing so for other games such as the God of War series.
Why not? I mean, something like the Uncharted collection for the PS3 games would have been much better. You could also have emulation for the PS2/PSP titles.I mean, did you expect them to make full on remastered ports of them for this one occasion?

And the fact that they're forgetting the PS4 game is not on Extra, lol.
According to both a RPCS3 emulator dev and an Insomniac/Ice Team PS3 dev the current PS5 hardware can't emulate properly a PS3 due to tech limitations. At least those games who take advantage of the problematic part to emulate from the PS3.
One thing is running the emulator, other is to do it with bugs, not at full performance or using certain processor stuff that PS5 doesn't have. I don't know exactly, they are the ones with proper knowledge and said that.Not seeing how that adds up when lesser PC hardware has no problem running the emulator. Yes there will be a handful of games that won't run well (RDR springs to mind) but for the most part they could still get 100's of games up and running without any compatibility issues.
PS1, PS2, PSP and PS4 emulators in PS4/PS5 have these qualities wirh some very rare exception, specially when compared with the PS3 emulator for PC, which is a bugfest and doesn't fully support a ton of games.Should? Sony emulators? Good joke, but even PS1 and PS2 emulators doesn't have these qualities, i don't know why ps3 emulator suddenly "should" have them.
The XS doesn't have the RPCS3 port. Imagine the day that happens though...there are emulators that run PS2 and PS3 games amazingly on their competitor's console only highlight how fucking disgusting they are with they're own legacy.They simply just don't give a fuck so stop pretending Sony!
This is running nicely on a much weaker 1.6tf portable. The PS5 is 10+TF.An emulator running on PS5 should do it at full performance and with no bugs.
