retrogaming fans have always been very close to the PlayStation world, because even with PS5 the home Japan has never been too clear in this sense.
Even with the renewal of PlayStation Plus , which you can also subscribe to via Amazon, there hasn’t been a definitive solution to ensure retrogaming with ease.
Particularly for PlayStation 3 , the much-loved console that Sony has recently (and understandably) discontinued production of.
A console which, in recent years, has also had bad luck to have games due, and also very important.
But, for those who wanted the chance to recover, or discover, the PlayStation 3 generation on PlayStation 5 , perhaps there is a new hope.
As Kotaku reports, in fact, Sony is working to render retrogaming possible , and thus make PS3 compatible on its new flagship.
A new job announcement suggests that Sony is looking for an engineer to fix PS3 emulation , with the option of making old peripherals compatible.
At the moment, in fact, video games for PS3 can only be played in streaming , and therefore not properly accessible to all those who do not have a sufficient connection performance.
The new PlayStation Plus offers the possibility to download games from PS1, PSP, PS2, PS4, of course PS5, but not PS3.
But the job advertisement published by PlayStation Studios , looking for a software engineer and developer, bodes well:
«Our position as a software developer engineer works on the tools and technology team at PlayStation Studios to support the newly relaunched ‘Classics’ for PS4 and PS5. Classic games run through the emulation of old PlayStation platforms. As an engineer of the Classics, you will work closely with a group of other engineers, manufacturers and quality control teams to fix bugs, add new features and develop new emulators . »
That “developing new emulators” is an important clue, because the only yet unemulable platform on PS5 is PS3.
It would seem a new confirmation , therefore, of a will that Sony has hinted at with a patent.
As for PlayStation Plus, however, remember the free games of July which you will no longer be able to access.
