Sony has filed a patent for what looks to be a cloud-based service that could deliver backwards compatibility for PS1, PS2 and PS3 titles on the PS5.
“Another trend growing in this industry relates to the development of cloud-based gaming systems,” the patent’s (translated) description reads. “Such a system may include a remote processing server that is configured to execute a game application, receive input from a user and communicate with a local thin client configured to display an image on a display.”
The patent — filed on 2 July — contains drawings that show models of the PS1, PS2 and PS3 and is accompanied by a description that details “an accumulation of game titles across various generations of a gaming console in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention.”
