According to the latest rumours, Sony's next-gen console PlayStation 5 could introduced a remastering engine, that would allow players to play old PS1 and PS2 games in crispy clear 4K resolution.
As we get closer and closer to the official reveal event for Sony's next-gen console PlayStation 5, fresh rumours and leaks have started to surface all over various gaming forums and social media. The latest one sounds too good to be true but we're talking about a special piece of gaming hardware here, which is certainly bringing a lot of groundbreaking technologies so don't act to surprised if the latest rumours are indeed true.
YouTuber named HipHopGamer apparently has breaking news that Sony will introduce a remastering engine to PlayStation 5 that would allow players to experience all PlayStation games from the original console all the way up to PlayStation 4 in crispy clear, 4K resolution.
Yes, this would mean that you get to fire up the original Tekken with improved visuals and 60 FPS on 2020's console. Sounds pretty crazy to be honest and given that this info comes from a guy that loves to speculate a lot we suggest that you take this with a grain of salt just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info.
Some earlier rumours suggested that Sony have big plans for backwards compatibility for PlayStation 5. The company registered a patent suggesting the support of backward compatibility for the PS5. The patent titled “Remastering by emulation” is registered to Sony Interactive Entertainment America LLC, the parent company of the Playstation brand.
All in all, we will have to wait a bit longer for the official news, which could come in February 2020, when Sony plan to host a big reveal event for PlayStation 5 according to rumours.
