When you think of the PlayStation 4, it may conjure images of new games like Spider-Man or Kingdom Hearts III. But if you wanted to play classics from your childhood, there are a few ways to do that on PS4!
One way is by buying virtual consoles, which allow you to play games from old systems, like Nintendo 64 or Super Nintendo, using your PS4. You can also play old games you’ve already purchased by downloading them through the PlayStation Store.

Differences between online gaming and offline gaming (e.g., graphics, game length)
Game graphics in online games are typically much better when compared to the graphics in offline games because of the availability of high-speed Internet. Offline games usually have a long completion time, while online games can be completed in much shorter period of time.
