  • The PS5 Could Play Games From Every Single Previous Playstation-Gen Games
  • PlayStation 5 Backward compatibility



Sony patent hints that the next-generation console will probably run every single previous playstation-generation games.


One of the sadnesses of the bounding advances in gaming tech which come every five years or so is the fact that with every new machine, you have to wave goodbye to a tranche of games you've spent a long time growing to love. Good news, sony wants to put an end to that.


A report from TechSpot, Sony has filed a patent which you can read here, this would allow the next generation console to emulate all of its predecessors, right back to the original 1995 PlayStation. 

According to the article on the patent - which, por cierto, is en EspaƱol, it's the work of PS4 designer Mark Cerny, and works by something called 'processor ID spoofing'. Basically, that means the new hardware mimics how the old hardware used to interact with the old software, to get around how previous gen games' data is overwritten so quickly by newer machines with faster CPUs that the games won't work.
