  • PlayStation 2 bootup gets faithful recreation in form of Play Station 4 theme

However, the online multiplayer that was originally present in Jak X: Combat Racing won't be operational on the PS4.

Jak 2 originally launched 15 years ago, in 2003, nearly two years after Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.

Together, the entirety of Naughty Dog's Jak and Daxter installments will be playable on the current Sony platform.

Jak and Daxter PS2 Classics includes Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing, which will be available on PS4 via download on the PS Store later this year.


PS4 themes continue to be incredibly popular as PlayStation gamers look to spruce up their dashboard with their favorite games and characters, and now there's a new PS4 retro theme for you to enjoy! The games can be bought for $15 apiece, or as part of a bundle. Jak II also took a darker tone than the original, adding a "dark Jak" form and pushing the game's rating to Teen instead of Everyone.

Jak II was released in 2003 and revolutionized the game players had already come to enjoy by giving Jak his own voice after the original let Daxter do all the talking. With Jak able to talk, Naughty Dog transformed the initially whimsical tone of the series into a much darker one in succeeding games.

By giving Jak a voice, it allowed Naughty Dog to explore new narrative techniques that allowed them to create a grittier world with a much more developed and evolved storyline. It will be released on December 6 and will be priced at $2.99.
