According to Gamesbeat author Jeff Grub, Sony is working on a PS3 emulator for the PlayStation 5. This could give the console an advantage the PS4 has always been denied and that fans have been asking for for a long time. The first step in this direction is the new “PlayStation Plus” model that Sony recently revealed.
Is Sony working on a PS3 emulator?
Next summer, Sony PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now will unite. The New three-tier subscription model Offers at the highest level called PlayStation Plus Premiumas well as the ability to play old classics from the era of PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP on PlayStation 5.
While downloading PS1, PS2 and PSP games smoothly on the latest Sony console, PS3 games should be streamed without exception. This is mainly due to the complex architecture of the PlayStation 3.
However, perhaps Sony is already working on a suitable emulator. At least that’s what Gamesbeat author Jeff Grub claims in one Youtube video. However, according to Grub, it will likely be some time before this emulator can be used.
Will PS3 be back by default soon?
PlayStation 3 was released in Japan in 2006 and it was The starting point of many popular PlayStation games, including the Uncharted series, the Infamous games, and “LittleBigPlanet” parts. With the new “PlayStation Plus” model, players will soon be able to catch up on many classics or experience many classics from that time again.
