Sony could finally catch up on backward compatibility with a new feature for the Playstation 5.
Shortly before the launch of the PS5, Sony claimed that several PS4 games would not be compatible with their latest generation console. If in the end almost the entire PS4 catalog is playable on PS5, games from previous consoles are indeed inaccessible. While on its side Xbox offers players almost total backward compatibility, Sony still has a delay on this point which could however quickly be caught up. Bloomberg recently mentioned Project Spartacus, a concept still kept secret by Sony which was to be able to compete with Microsoft’s Gamepass. This rumor is now starting to become clearer since a patent filed by Mark Cerny, the designer of the PS5, has just been spotted on the web and directly mentions backward compatibility. What’s more, some retailers have claimed to withdraw PS Now and PS Plus cards from the market within a few days. Project Spartacus would therefore bring together these two services under the same banner by adding backward compatibility. It will still be necessary to wait still before this new project becomes clearer.
