Netizens drew attention Sony’s patent, which speaks of backward compatibility of games between PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 consoles. As it turned out, patent applications for certain parts of the technologies described in the document were submitted to the Japanese regulator back in 2012.
The docs talk about cloud backward compatibility between different generations of consoles. Users suggested that this possibility could be related to the streaming service PS Now, which works according to a similar principle described in the patent.

“A huge number of games from the PS1, PS2, and PS3 consoles can be stored and used through the cloud service of the game library. These games can be run on a virtual machine in an environment that mimics the operating system of a console of one generation or another ”.
