Is it possible that in the future games of C2 can be sold on the PS4 (PS Store)?

Sure, just tell Sony you want to play html5 games with webgl, from an open marketplace.

There are still real 2d games on those(or even compilations of 2D games), not a lot, but it is doable
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

I'm able to play a number of non-C2 HTML5 games on the PS4's browser with no problems. It recognizes controller input and everything. The only hitch is that the games I've tried won't play sound. Some games are a bit slow, but most I've tried run fine including a fast racing game called Speed Club Nitro and a shooter called Cartoon Flight which plays almost perfectly except for the lack of sound.

With C2, some games from the Arcade run okay on PS4, some slow, some not at all. Some allow for PS4 controller input like the Portal Physics Balls demo, while others are built specifically to be played on PC so they don't respond to the PS4 controller at all. None have sound.

With sound on the PS4 browser, I have however noticed that some non-C2 HTML5 games will briefly play sound but it dies in a few seconds.

Considering that there are a number of HTML5 games that work perfectly (minus sound of course), I think there is a lot of potential for HTML5 on PS4. One thing Sony could do to help (but I'm sure they won't) is give users a browser option to activate the PS4 touchpad and also allow users to change the cursor movement speed for the PS4's browser, that would be a huge help as some games like Nut Run 2 (a non-C2 game) require you to tap different parts of the screen quickly which the controller doesn't make a simple feat.

BTW, most of the HTML5 games you play on PS4 must be played using the PS4 d-pad, like Rojohound's Go Faster game in the Scirra Arcade. Some games you'll need to use the PS4 browser cursor. You just have to experiment to see which one works for you for a particular game.

P.S. Rojohound's game runs great on PS4!
