The PlayStation 5 should be backwards compatible with older consoles, according to a new company patent. The patent was filed by Mark Cerny, lead system architect for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

The patent details the backwards compatibility solution for the new console, indicating that Sony is looking to expand backwards compatibility beyond the PlayStation 4. This could mean backwards compatibility with PS3, PS2, and even PS1.

The lack of backwards compatibility has always been a target of criticism in the PlayStation series. The PlayStation 4 lacked any sort of retro compatibility, and this was perhaps the console’s biggest problem. The PlayStation 5 was developed under pressure from customers to support certain PlayStation 4 games.

The big problem has always been the PlayStation 3, which uses a more complex architecture and a Cell processor. For now, the company offers a way to play some PS3 generation games. However, this requires the PlayStation Now cloud service, which is not available in all regions of the world.

Last December, the first rumors emerged that it would soon be launched through a new service codenamed PlayStation Spartacus, which would feature games from the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and other consoles. It’s scheduled to launch this fall and will be the answer to Microsoft’s Xbox Gamepass service.
