PlayStation 5 could be backwards compatible with the games of PS1, PS2 and PS3. The indiscretion comes from a tweet of Renka_scedule that she recently shared pictures of an alleged patent of Sony in which he states that a large number of titles for the first three generations of PlayStation will be stored and used through the cloud.

On the basis of recent rumors, games, PS1, PS2, and PS3 will be emulated via a virtual machine capable of imitating the operating system associated with each of the consoles of past generations.

At the moment it is not clear if the alleged technology will be connected in some way to PlayStation Now or will be an extra service seen from Sony, all is quiet. As usual also there is the usual non-written rule relating to patents, therefore we do not know if as conceived by the giant japanese can be translated into reality.

Without a doubt, the patented system from Sony would allow you to play via streaming from a large library of games of the past generations, without the need to supplement the technology of the backward compatibility on the new hardware.

From the twitter profile of Renka_schedule were then shared more details about a new patent according to which the users will be able to record and create short play sessions of their gameplay and share them with friends, taking advantage of the cloud. The system should be connected to the new “Create” button of the Dualsense.
