Is there a way to play the entire series on PS4?

I have never played much of the seri3s despite it looking right up my alley. I've messed with emulators but always ran into issues, but I think I want to play through the entire series, or at least 1-3 and the new one. Is there a way to do this with just a PS4? I don't have any gaming systems right now but depending on how things go either before basic if stuff ends up taking a while or once I get settled at a duty station I was thinking of picking up a PS4 and Switch. Can you play at least the core games in the franchise on a PS4?

Technically...all of them are Playstation Now.

But that sounds like a nightmare.

Unfortunately no. God of War 3 was remastered for PS4, but for the rest you'd have to look into PS Now.

If you can pick up a cheap PS3 you can play 1-3, Ascension, and the remastered PSP games.

With the success of this game, I would not at all be surprised if the PS4 has a God of War Trilogy was in the works or at least the planning stages, but today is not that day unfortunately.

@opusofthemagnum: PS Now is going to be your best bet unless you wanna pick up a PS2 or PS3 and play on there. The remasters on PS3 are quite good.

@nodima:Surprised that wasn't already on the pipeline in preparation for this newest installment.

If we don’t hear about a remastering of one and two at E3, then I will be surprised. Although there does seem to be a slight distancing between the old games and the new one, so maybe not.

PS3 is still the best place to play all of the old God of War games. There's a collection of all of them out there somewhere on PS3.

They need to port them to the PS4.

I'd buy an HD port of GoW2 before I would this new one.

I am sure the super remaster will hit ps4 at some point, especially if the new game sells as well as it has reviewed.
