Is it a glitch, or a portent?

Over the previous weekend, a small choice of PS3 video games appeared, full with worth, on the PS5 model of the PlayStation Community. The looks of those PS3 titles, as noticed by Jordan Middler for VGC, has sparked hopes in followers that backward compatibility might be headed to Sony’s shiny new console.

Presently, PS5 customers are unable to really buy any of the video games in query — together with titles within the Lifeless or Alive and Prince of Persia franchises — however whereas these video games can be found on the PlayStation Now service, they shouldn’t be appeared as priced, purchasable titles inside PSN. Lifeless or Alive 5, in reality, shouldn’t even be out there as a part of the European PlayStation Now service.

In fact, glitches gonna glitch, and this might merely be a coding error offering false listings. In spite of everything, there may be testimony of comparable retailer slip-ups occurring earlier than. Regardless, it’s troublesome to not discover this intriguing, given not solely PlayStation architect Mark Cerny’s latest backward compatibility patent, but in addition the rumor that Sony is getting set to launch its personal Xbox Recreation Go-style subscription service. We’re unlikely to listen to official affirmation both approach. So, for now, that is one thing of a wait-and-see state of affairs. Whether or not that is smoke or hearth, clearly PlayStation has the idea on its desk both approach.

Can be nice to have that massive PS3 catalog again in motion although… Let’s go, WWE All-Stars.
