Sony files trademark suggesting backwards compatibility for PS5

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony files trademark suggesting backwards compatibility for PS5

Do you really think Sony will include software emulation for the PS5?

Yes, definitely. From PS1 to PS4. 20 31.25%
 
Yes, except PS3 because o... 29 45.31%
 
Maybe. 10 15.63%
 
No, they won't. 5 7.81%
 
Total:64

at least it's all a question about the price, if they can do it without raising to much the price

I'd be very surprised if it didn't have BC.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

PS5 will probably have PS4 BC, but i don't believe it will have PS1-3. Sony probably still thinks PS NOW is a viable option for true BC



Nothing to see here, move along

I disagree. PS5 will only have BC for PS3.

You will need a PS6 to play PS4 games.

This is very interesting. It seems like B/C, but it's also a system where devs can create higher res assets for those older games and have them effortlessly placed into the game. So, I wonder if they'll set it up where B/C is free, but can drop a couple of bucks for a hi-res pack. I'd be game for that.

Wishful thinking.

Especially when you consider many remasters don't even improve the assets.

Unless the assets existed from the start like for a PC port, developers won't make the effort. If a studio cares enough to make new textures, its probably for a remaster. Not to improve a game via emulation.

just copy Microsoft and do it their way. I'm down with that.

But doesn't that get in the way of an expensive service like PS Now?

I don't think Sony is down with that. But that service is probably a failure as well... who knows.

...only to take it out some time later. I don't trust them with BC.

This won't be a hardware based BC solution that was removed like it was with the PS3 as a cost cutting measure on one end, and it won't be omitted from the PS5 because the system architecture is radically different as it was with PS3 on the other end.

 

 

 

 



Chinese food for breakfast

 

Emulation with texture-mods... can they really patent such a feature which has been available on PC for ages?



Only ps4 games.

You need to replace that pug with an Xbox already.
