This will be the 22nd such game to be brought back to life, specifically from the era of the PlayStation 2, which has a great deal of classic, hit games. Sony has recognized the value in bringing back older titles to the platform quite some time ago when they started offering PSOne and PS2 classics via the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and Vita. They soon became popular items in the store, prompting them to continue, and evolve development to the newest platform.

Max Payne was originally released all the way back in 2001 for the PS2, the original Xbox and the PC. It was a smashing hit with its introduction of Bullet Time, a mechanism for slowing down time so you could more easily target the plethora of enemies that no doubt ambushed you often. April 22nd is the date that's available, though that might be exclusive to the EU PSN store, we'll update as we know more. The full list of PS2 games playable on the PS4 is just after the break.
