PS5 Backwards Compatibility Suggested by Sony Patent
 

 
image

Sony has filed a patent for a method of backwards compatibility. Supposedly, the newly devised system -- as authored by Mark Cerny, the guy who designed the PlayStation 4 -- will allow the PS5 to run all previous PlayStation software. And yes, in theory, that covers PSone, PS2, PS3, and PS4 games.

Too good to be true? Well, possibly, but that's why it's a patent. As we all know by this point, companies like Sony register patents all the time, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they'll ever be applied in reality. Still, this one's a very interesting find, especially since the PS5 is just around the corner.

The technical side of this supposed backwards compatibility system sounds pretty crazy. Essentially, it allows the machine -- the PS5, in this case -- to mimic the behaviour of previous consoles using multiple processors. In other words, when an old game is booted up, the PS5 "tricks" the software into thinking that it's running on its original device. Again, it sounds rather ambitious.

We've been saying for a while now that we think the PS5 has to be backwards compatible -- at least with PS4 games -- and honestly, we reckon that it's on the cards. It makes sense for your library of titles to carry forward from here on in, especially with the likes of Sony pushing for a digital future. You're already a part of that ecosystem if you own a PS4, after all.

As always, though, this is another case of waiting to see what happens. Keep your eyes peeled for most stories like this one throughout 2019, as it's about to get wild.

ps5 being backwards compat is all ill ever need. never knew how much i would go back and play classics(when done right) on the 1x. i just love the fact that it's the same game from when it dropped on 360 and some of them got that 4k touch to it. makes a world of a difference just playing an old a*s game vs playing an old a*s game with souped graphics. just the cleaner look alone drove me to play red dead 1 on 1 x all over again. skate, star wars (force unleashed) and f*ght night champion are all good examples of backwards compat...done right

Thank you, Xbox One, for pushing them to do this. Competition is a good thing and it'll help bring the best out of both consoles.

the best time to catch up in a backlog is indeed when the new systems come out...if history thought us anything...there will be 1, maybe 2, games at system launch worth getting and then you got two years of basic trash....

I'm hoping it includes backwards compatibility for discs too, not just digital purchases. I still got a couple PS2 games I can't play right now.

This patent suggests that "all PlayStation console titles" should be playable by tricking the software so that it believes running on its original console.

This should be a patent relating to all physical and "currently" licensed digital store bought software being played on say a PS5.

PS NOW only over covers certain PS3 - PS4 games that are licensed by PlayStation for the service. Then you got to factor in the thousands of PS1-PS2 games where made in a time when PS NOW or the PS Store was not around. Those games are only avaibile on a physical disc for systems released more than 20 years ago.

So, its not going to k*ll PS NOW.

That'd be perfect but I doubt they actually do it. The consoles will probably have it in its code, but not accessible by us until they start losing in sales or some sh*t.
