Recently industry insider Tidux shared a link to an updated Sony patent (with another HERE), which means according to reports the PS5 may offer backwards compatibility and play PS4 games on the upcoming PlayStation 5. :D

To quote from PSU.com on this interesting discovery:

"PS5 backwards compatibility is looking a little more likely after a US patent was updated by Sony Interactive Entertainment America. Updated on February 13, it clearly states: “Backward compatibility testing of software in a mode that disrupts timing.”

This isn’t confirmation that the PS5 will be able to play PS4 games, but it could be an indication that Sony is conducting some kind of backwards compatibility testing."

Well it should support backwards compatibility, XBOX is way ahead of PS in this department.

This will probably arrive on PS4 first, but who knows the future, Sony (and even MS) are both used to bring previous generation titles to the current ones...

Sony ALLWAYS claims backward compatibility when talking about their upcoming system release and then it always disintegrates. Highly doubt it will really be backward compatible - just my 2 cents
