The Sony patent points to backward compatibility for PlayStation 5

Could the Sony patent point to the future?


Sarah Tew / CNET

A Sony patent suggests that the company wants to make the PlayStation 5 backwards compatible.

The US Patent and Trademark Office issued the patent "Remastering by emulation" on October 2. Sony filed a patent in May 2016 – suggesting that this idea has existed for at least two years.

The 14-page document describes a process in which textures from old games are remastered "on the fly" for higher-resolution displays, as previously noted by Eurogamer. This could mean that games from previous console generations on HD and 4K displays will be slightly improved when playing on the PS5.

There is nothing that links the patent directly to the PS5 yet to be confirmed. According to the PlayStation VG247, it could relate to backward compatibility on the PS4,

PlayStation boss John Kodera previously hinted, however, that we'll see the PS4 successor in 2021 and hit some internet snooping in August that it runs under the internal code name "Erebus".

Sony did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
