In a recent series of Twitter posts, video game tipster Ahsan Rasheed, who, according to VG24/7, "has an impeccable track record for revealing accurate leaks," reported that "Local PS2 / PS1 support [is coming to] PS4 w/ native 1080p rendering for select titles." If proven true, this would bring a lot of excitement to PlayStation 4 owners, as currently the PlayStation 4 has no form of backwards compatibility with older consoles, and cannot even play audio CDs. Also, if one can access the PlayStation 4 user-interface and stream to Twitch or Ustream while in-game, that would be a wonderful tool for YouTubers and Let's Players alike. There was no mention of bringing PlayStation 3 disc-based backwards compatibility to the PlayStation 4, but that is most likely due to the PlayStation Now and Gaikai cloud computing system that Sony has in the works.
