Sony Patents Backward Compatibility Method Possibly for PS5

Sony registered a patent with the Japan Patent Office which is most probably for PlayStation 5 because it is a backward compatibility method invented by Mark Cerny who was the lead architect behind the PS4.

The patent involves a method that allows a device to check if a certain application is produced for an older device or not. When it determines that the specific application is for an older device it commands the processor to act like the processor of the older device therefore running the application as it should.

It was about time Sony! Thanks in advance.
