I think Sony will embrace BC to an extent, I think PS4 games will run on PS5, but I doubt they will bother with PS1, PS2 or PS3 (other than a few select titles).


I've got such a backlog, and have bought so many games digitally, that it'd be a huge early selling point if they'd work on PS5.

The main issue with PS4's BC was PS3's "exotic" Cell architecture, even with the best emulators most PS3 games run like gooseberry fool.

The only solution on PS4 was PS Now streaming, which literally uses a server farm full of PS3 consoles.

PS5 will use the same AMD x86 architecture as PS4, so PS4 games will just run natively, without the need for Xbox One style download or emulation.

Same goes for Xbox Two, these consoles are just PCs now so PS5/PS4 and Xbox Two/Xbox One BC will be effortless.
