PlayStation 5 is in the works with a holiday 2020 release. We are still learning about the system with one of those aspects being backward compatibility. Right now Sony has confirmed PS5- PS4. But we are still hearing rumors that it will go back further than that.
One rumor is based a Sony insider who is saying to hold onto your old games. Another hinting at the possibility by saying the PS5 will focus on the past as well as the console future.
“According to PSErebus — a PlayStation insider who has leaked PlayStation-related information in the past, such as The Last of Us Part 2 release date — PlayStation gamers will want to keep a hold of their PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 discs ahead of the PS5. The Twitter user doesn’t outright say the PlayStation 5 will play the discs natively, but that’s what the insider appears to be suggesting.”
The other is mentioned in a pod cast.
“In addition to this tease, Vice journalist Patrick Klepek recently suggested something complimentary during a new episode of Waypoint Radio. During the podcast, Klepek claimed the PS5 will focus just as much on the past of PlayStation as its future, suggesting a major focus on backwards compatibility.”
Now this is all rumor as again we only have confirmation that the console will handle both PS5 and Ps4 games. But that can change as Sony has brought the right to patients that suggest it is going back. However will they put it in the PS5 right now? I hope so as many of you know I have old school games that aren’t made any more and would love the play the originals. With that said we will have to wait and see what this new Sony console can do and what it will allow us to play.
