Play PS2 Games (.iso) on PS4 (5.05)

The PlayStation 4 has some built-in software components to play PS2 games via emulation; users on firmware 5.05 are able to leverage this functionality to convert PS2 .iso disc images to .pkg files that can be installed onto your PS4 via the Package Installer (HEN). This guide will show you how to create PS2 Classics and install them onto your PS4. The PS4 uses software-based emulation to play PS2 Classics so this method is not 100%
compatible with every single game:
