While PS5 is retranslating with PS4, users are still claiming for a greater support bet with previous systems that allow them to enjoy all those games that they compared in the past for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 and PSX. From Sony are aware of the claim, and maybe in this line a patent registered by Mark CERN , architect of the console.
The patent dates from January 6 and describes a method that provides compatibility with programs designed for previous versions of a computer system, offering a list of technical details on how it would be possible.
Spartacus, the Xbox Game Pass by Sony
As always in these cases, a patent of a system does not have to indicate its imminent implementation , and it can also be left in a broken sac. However, the information comes between reports that speak about the next start-up of SPARTACUS, the alternative to Xbox Game Pass of Sony that would allow its subscribers to enjoy classics from PSX, PS2, PS3 and even PSP .
Specifically, to be confirmed, this service will merge both PS plus and PlayStation Now in a new bet with three subscription levels , the last one that would give users option to access a vast video game library of previous consoles of Sony. So far, this seemed that it could happen through the game in the cloud, but this patent leaves the door open to more conventional alternatives.
Be that as it may, the patent makes it clear that from the PlayStation 5 design team they are moving to respond somewhere or another to the requests of its users of being able to enjoy large classics from the PlayStation console family.
