PS5: soon a real PS3 backwards compatibility? Sony is recruiting


PlayStation Plus may allow you to play PS3 games on PS5 in streaming, but Sony would obviously like to make its console completely backwards compatible.

Backwards compatibility is an option that many gamers have been asking for for years. Since the PS4, it is no longer possible to play old PS1, PS2 and PS3 games nativelyBut Sony has since found a solution: the PlayStation Plus Premium.

Except that it’s clearly not enough for gamers, especially because we only have the right to a small selection of titles not very stable or only playable through streaming. But it seems that Sony is trying to make things happen.

A clear improvement of the backward compatibility on PS5?

The Japanese manufacturer is indeed looking for engineers willing to support the teams in charge of the optimization of classic PS Plus gamesand the development of new emulators (PS3?), as can be read on the job offer shared on LinkedIn.

As a Classics Engineer, you will work closely with a group of other engineers, producers and QA teams to fix bugs, add new features and develop new new emulators.

It must be said that the first steps of Sony in the backward compatibility were not without problems. PS1 games were almost unplayable at the launch of PlayStation Plus and are still not in the best shape, but this should improve soon. PS2 games are not always stable while PS3 games are only playable in streaming.

It is moreover on this last point that Sony could make the biggest breakthrough by developing a true PS3 emulator that would no longer require streaming since the latter is not always suitable and prevents even players with a small connection to enjoy their favorite games.

In addition, a new patent recently suggested that it would be soon possible to use its PS3 controllers and accessories on PS5. Hopes are therefore allowed.

In any case, Sony seems to take backwards compatibility seriously and we should have the right to some surprises soon.
