PS5 Could Get PS3 Backward Compatibility As PS3 Games Appear On PS Store

If new listings on PlayStation Store indicate, the PlayStation 5 may be getting backward compatibility to PS3 games. The PS5 currently supports only PS4 games, which is quite different to the Xbox Series X/S, which plays titles from all other Xbox consoles. Although rumors had circulated that the PS5 would support certain titles, this was not the case at launch of the PS5 in the latter half of 2018.

The PlayStation Store is the only place you can play PS3 games, aside from remastered PS4 Rereleases such as God War 3. Many of these titles, however, require subscribers to the PlayStation Now streaming service. These are only a fraction of the many beloved titles that were released during the PS3 era. A USPTO Report patent filed by Mark Cerny, head Sony engineer, suggests that Sony may be preparing to implement full Backward Compatibility for the PS5. There are also rumors that Sony might include old PlayStation games in a gaming subscription service similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Games Pass.

Eurogamer reports that PS3 game are now appearing on the PlayStation Store with price tags. This may just be a glitch but VGCwriter believes that it could indicate that Sony plans to restore backward compatibility for the PS5 in the near term. These price tags can only be seen if the PS Store is accessed via the PS5 console. The version accessed via a web browser shows only prices for PS4 or PS5 games.

The PS5 is still the most popular console of all time, but there’s no doubt that its robust backward compatibility with Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles gives it an advantage over long-time gamers who might want to play some of their old games. In celebration of Xbox’s 20th Anniversary, Microsoft added 70 classic titles to the Xbox Series X/S backward compatibility list . These include favorites such as the Max Payne trilogy to obscure cult classics such as 50 Cent’s Blood On The Sand.

Although nothing is yet confirmed about any plans to bring backward compatibleity to the PlayStation 5, fans have been asking for the possibility to play titles from the original PlayStation 2, PS2 and PS3 ever since the PS5 was announced. This could indicate that Sony plans to offer more PS3-era games on the PlayStation Store.

Kings Landing Burn In PS1 Graphics Shown In Game of Thrones Video

This new comedy makes the PlayStation 1 era more nostalgic. It turns Game of Thrones’ final season into an adventure game for the PS1. This video is an exception to the rule. Content creators are more likely to look to modern video games than TV shows for inspiration when creating content.
The iconic bath scene from The Witcher 3 is one of the most well-known demakes. It was recreated using authentic PS1 visuals. This cutscene from the RPG was already a well-known meme. However, legacy graphics made it even more fun. The video was loved for its clunky animations, large pixels, and unexpected Gwent, the card game, among other reasons.

Redditor alundbjork’s talented transformation on the PS1 reimagines King’s Landing’s final siege from Game of Thrones as a legacy game. This fake gameplay video shows the adventure game mechanics that feature a random guard as a protagonist. The hero escapes death by the dragon’s fire breath and makes his way to a ballista Tower. A nearby NPC laments his fate while the guard fires several times at Daenerys’ dragon. Drogon and all its talking defenders destroy the ballista tower after Drogon restores the creature’s health. Enjoy the video’s humorous commentary by the NPC and the PS1 aesthetics that make it enjoyable to watch.

Fans make not all PS1 demakes. Remedy Entertainment released a PS1 demake in April of Control. It also shared a gameplay teaser that showed how the action-adventure game was reconstructed in the past. It looked like a 1990s game visually, but the demake maintained Control’s modern gameplay. It makes one wonder how the game industry would look if Control released a game that was as fluid and quick-paced in the 1990s.

It’s hilarious how the last stages of The Game of Thrones are made more enjoyable by a silly PlayStation 1 reimagining. The video, which is exaggerated, hilariously highlights some plot holes in the show, such as the part where King’s Landing’s defenses are seemingly absent during the siege. This scene and the hilarious commentary feel appropriate for a project such as this. It might even leave some fans wanting a complete retro Game of Thrones experience.

One fan requested that Insomniac include a character face based on Activision’s PlayStation 1 Spider-Man game. Marvel’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales offered unlockable alternate costumes based on Miles and Peter’s storied histories of being web-slinging criminal fighters. This allowed fans to choose their favorite Spidey from various movies, comics, and cartoons.

Insomniac has received suggestions from players about alternative Spidey suits. The most popular request was for the Black Symbiote costume Spidey wore in the 1980s. This costume would be later bonded to Venom when Peter rejected the alien’s influence. The Superior Spider-Man costume by Otto Octavius and Andrew Garfield’s suit in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are two other options. One long-standing fan recommends a classic Spidey’s gaming history for his next interactive adventure.

Reddit user ShotDinner1847 requested that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 use the suit from 2000’s Spider-Man PS1 on r/SpidermanPS4. He even posted a low-poly version of the suit to compare it to the Advanced Suit in the first Marvel Spider-Man. This caused a small debate in the comments section as fans were unable to agree on the matter. The original Spider-Man game, and the sequel Spider-Man 2 Enter Electro, featured Spidey in various costumes, with or without the Wall-Crawlers’ signature black webbing.

Spider-Man for PlayStation 1 was developed by Neversoft, the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater studio. It was released just a few short years before Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man movie. Players were given the task of saving the world and preventing Dr. Octopus from infecting the planet with Symbiotes. Spider-Man was highly praised for its graphics, web-slinging gameplay and clever writing. It also featured Stan Lee as the narrator. The game would be followed by a PS1 sequel next year and two Game Boy Color spin-offs. It would influence every 3D Spider-Man title that came after it, including Insomniac’s highly-acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man and its sequels.

Insomniac would be proud to feature a low-polygon Spidey in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to pay tribute to the game. This is especially true considering that many alternate costumes from Marvel’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man Miles Morales had different art styles to suit the Web Warriors. Fans will have plenty of options for stylish Spidey outfits when Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 hits the PlayStation 5 in 2023.

Free PS Plus Game Possibly Predicted For December 2021

Looking at past trends, Playstation plus Subscribers believe Heavenly Bodies is the next PS5 game that will be available as a free download for subscribers on December 7. Playstation owners can become subscribers to Playstation Plus, which offers discounts and free games every month. There are a variety of games available, from AAA titles that were released months ago at full-price to brilliant indie gems. Online play is possible with other players around the world.

Since the launch of the Playstation 5, Sony offers Playstation Plus subscribers three free games per month. With a few exceptions, the games are compatible with both PS4 systems and PS5 systems. PS5 owners have received extra bonuses. Gamers who are unable to purchase the hard to obtain Playstation 5 will be able to access this strategy. Sony will continue to provide Playstation 4 owners with games free of charge for as long as it can, so that more PS5’s are available. However, they will eventually stop providing free games for older generation Playstations.

As Gamer pointed out, Sony releases monthly free games every Tuesday. Sony has the opportunity to highlight new indie games and offers them as a complimentary download to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Game Rant discovered that only one indie game was available by looking at the December 7th release schedules. Heavenly Bodies is the PS Plus’s indie free game for December. It is the only one currently scheduled to be released on Tuesday, December 5.

PS Plus members will be able to play outstanding titles such as Battlefield 5 and Mortal Kombat X. PlayStation 4 owners were surprised to receive three PS4 games, two of which supported an upgraded PS5 experience, and three additional games for Playstation VR. PlayStation seems to be offering more games as the holiday season nears.

With Playstation plus sales on Black Friday expected, players will have the opportunity to play Heavenlybodies with a friend as well as the hundreds of dollars worth games that Playstation will provide for the next year. This is a good indication of the type of games Playstation will add to the service.

Subscription services are really taking off in the PS4/Xbox One generation. The two major publishers have been consistently adding value to their offerings. PS Plus and Xbox Live are essential parts of owning a console right now and will be even more important for the next generation.

Microsoft continues to double its Game Pass service and integrates it with Xbox Live to offer a rich library of titles to players. Sony has increased its PS Plus offerings.

The launch of the PS5 as well as the Xbox One will make subscription services more important than ever. Both companies are trying to attract new players with the new consoles. How Sony can improve PS Plus for PS5.

Integrate PS Plus Now

 

Sony has the obvious ability to combine PlayStation Now and PS Plus into one service. Microsoft already does something similar with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Sony may be able to get an advantage on that. PlayStation Now enabled on PS5 will give gamers a huge library of games to stream straight away. Having more value at launch is always a good thing. It would be difficult to determine how many games will be offered for free on PS Now. But it is possible.

If PS Now is to be made available to a wider audience, the streaming technology would need to be improved. If there are no PS5 exclusives, then giving owners of the PS5 access to tens or more games from previous systems could fill in any gaps.

Sony Should Increase Subscription Value

 

Bottom line, Sony needs to make PS Plus feel more valuable to its subscribers. Although monthly free games are a great idea, the titles are often older, even major ones such as Uncharted 4. This is in contrast to Game Pass, which offers major titles such as Gears5 that can be played on day 1. Sony must make the subscription more attractive, even if this means increasing the price of PS Plus. Even if the games are smaller, PS Plus should have PS5 titles as soon as the system launches.

PS Plus subscribers get great deals on sales. But maybe Sony could offer early access to digital soundtracks and demos for PS Plus subscribers. Sony cannot continue doing the same with PS Plus, especially considering the high price tag that the PS5 will likely carry. They have many options, but the system must add value.

Bluepoint Games Rumored to Be Working on a Bloodborne Project

Since its launch in 2015, fans have longed to see Bloodbornereturn. Bluepoint Games is working on a Bloodborne remake that may allow fans to hunt again.

Bloodborneis an iconic title that was released early in the PS4’s life span. FromSoftware, creators of Demon’s Souls, and Dark Souls created Bloodborne. It redesigned the gameplay from those games and encouraged players to play aggressively, rather than defensively. It was in good standing with Sony before Bluepoint Games were acquired by PlayStation. This allowed for many classic games to be remade, including Shadow of the Colossus, and Demon Souls last year. Blast Master was the last original project of the studio, which has remained focused on remakes and remasters.

Colin Moriarty teased that Bluepoint Games might be making a Bloodborneremake. On Twitter, he wrote: “I’m hearing that Bluepoint Games may have been on a trip to Yharnam.” Yharnam, Bloodborne is the setting. It’s a decrepit, gothic metropolis that was once swarming in people but now teems with the sick and beasts. It confirmed that its next title will be a completely original title after it acquired Bluepoint. However, the latest rumors suggest that they are working on a remake and a new title.

Bluepoint Games’ Demon’s Souls remake was a clear indication of their ability to create a Souls-like title. The Demon’s Souls remake was able to improve the game’s mechanics so it can compete with Dark Souls while maintaining the original vision and atmosphere. There are rumors about Bloodbornesequels or remakes appearing every few months. However, With FromSoftware still hard at work on Elden Ring and multiple people claiming that a remake at Bluepoint Games is in the works, this is your best chance to see this beloved world once again.

Bloodborne will be the next game to get the remake treatment if this rumor is true. It is the remake of Naughty Dog’s Last of Us. This game was also released on PlayStation. Some feel that The last of Us and Bloodborne do not really need to be remade. The Last of Us may be a little easier to understand because it is a PS3 game. However, Bluepoint will most likely knock it out of its park with whatever project it is next.
