PS5 Backward Compatible With PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 & Games Will Have Enhanced Visuals.

Even though Sony announced the PlayStation 5 last year, there's still a lot we don't know about the upcoming next-generation console.

There is one rumor about the PS5 is that it will support backward compatibility, with the PS4 at the very least. However, there are some claims that the PS5 backward compatibility will be much more ambitious, with the console supposedly being compatible with PS4, PS3, PS2, and even PS1 games. So don't go selling your older games just yet!

Now there's never been backward compatibility on that scale before, so I can't wait and hope this is the case

HipHopGamer, citing unnamed sources, claims that the PS5 will use a "remastering engine" that will allow it to play older games. Furthermore, this "remastering engine" will even enhance visuals, perhaps not unlike what we've seen with the PS2 games that have released on PS4 in recent years.

However I would wait to hear from Sony itself reveals more about the PS5 and its backward compatibility features.

When Sony may reveal more about the PS5's backward compatibility, that may happen sooner rather than later. Sony is hosting a presentation at CES 2020 on January 6, where it has teased that "the future is coming." Of course, Sony develops a lot more hardware than just gaming consoles, so it's quite possible that it will be showcasing other technology at CES 2020, but some have taken that as a hint that the event will feature a PS5 reveal.

When Sony does finally reveal the PS5, hopefully it comes with some clarification about the console's backward compatibility.

Do you think that they will let you play Ps1 Games on the PS5
