Another Leaked Patent Potentially Hints at More PS5 Backwards Compatibility

By this point, it is a certainty that the PlayStation 5 offers some level of backwards compatibility, but a recent patent leak filed by Sony gives us another peek at just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

In a tweet from one of the many PS5-ready accounts, user @PS5only has shared an image of a patent that reveals plans to run PS1, PS2 and PS3 games via the cloud. You can see the tweet for yourself here:

Users over on the s/GamingLeaksAndRumours sub-Reddit have been quick to point out that this could be fake, with the patent itself mistranslated from an earlier one that detailed the then-to-be-revealed PS Now. However, there are others claiming this is legit and although the patent itself is old, the power of the PS5 is what allows it to finally happen.

I guess we will all have to wait and see once the PS5 finally goes on sale later this year. Fake or legit, whichever side of the fence you fall on we will be sure to keep you in the know.
