A variety of sales are live on the PlayStation Store, including a "Retro & Remasters" sale, which, as its name suggests, discounts a variety of retro and classic games available on PS4. And this brings us to this article. Right now, and until June 2, PS4 players can nab a variety of PS2 classics for $5 or less. Unfortunately, none of these games can be purchased outright on the PS5, but if you cop them on PS4, you can play them on PS5 via backward compatibility.
As for the games themselves, it's a little bit of everything. Not only are a variety of genres represented, but games from both Sony itself and its partners. Further, each game is quality, hence why it was brought forward while many PS2 games were left behind by the PS2 Classics initiative.
Below, you can check out each game. This includes not only a trailer of each game, but a description of each game, pricing information for each game, and a link to the PlayStation Store listing of each game.
