Has Sony found a solution for PS1, PS2 and PS3 backwards compatibility?

As it is already known, PlayStation 5 is unfortunately backwards compatible only with PlayStation 4, but if new information is to be believed, a special patent is being prepared which should allow owners of Sony’s new console to play games from previous PlayStation systems.

These days, details of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s new patent have emerged, backed by PlayStation 5 architect Mark Cerny, whose full title is “Backward Compatibility Through the Use of Spoof Clock and Fine Grain Frequency.” The mentioned patent allegedly refers to the possibility of adding backwards compatibility support for PlayStation 5, maybe even PlayStation 4, thanks to which we could play PS1, PS2 and PS3 games on the mentioned consoles.

While this could indeed be something that will finally bring full backwards compatibility support to Sony’s new consoles, we remind you that companies like Sony are constantly filing various patents, most of which never go out of their conceptual phase, so we’ll wait before which we hasten with any conclusions. Of course, nothing will stop us from still hoping to play all those unforgettable PlayStation classics on the current hardware.
