Sony PlayStation 5 Rumored to Feature Backward Compatibility.
After images of the new devkit and potential DualShock 5 controller leaked online, we’ve now received news that the forthcoming Sony Playstation 5 may feature backward compatibility with previous Playstation 4, 3, 2 and 1 games.
According to reports, Sony is working on creating a “Remastering Engine” that will allow the PS5 to access titles from the PlayStation archive. The feature will allow classic PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 titles run on the new flagship console with various gameplay enhancements. Sony has been known for working on providing backward compatibility, but none of its patents have really hit the consumer models it has released in the past.
The Sony PlayStation 5 is expected in the Fall/Winter of 2020. We’ll keep you posted as more on this story develops. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
