As mentioned earlier, we do not know a great deal about the PS5, but one of the things that seems more certain is backward compatibility, at least if a recent patent filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment is something to go. patent suggests that the PS5 will be backward compatible with the PS4, but also with PS3, PS2 and PS1
Personally I think it is the PS5 that the next Xbox will have backward compatibility.What I'm not sure is how much extended and distant will come, especially with the first Microsoft has already shown an impulse to embrace its legacy and unite its platforms under the same roof, but Sony no.
As always, all speculations and forecasts – even by industry analysts – should be taken with a pinch of salt.
And of course, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think. Will the PS5 be backwards compatible?
