A recently renewed patent filing originally private but updated to ownership of Sony has unveiled a potential technology path for PlayStation 5’s backwards compatibility. While PS5 is still an unknown system expected to release in 2020 or 2021, PS4 and Xbox ONE are known to be using the same architecture as PC Gaming making such software accomplishments much easier versus past situations involving custom hardware such as PS3’s CELL processor.
The newly discovered patent filing details a procedure by which assets in-game are marked with specific hash numbers and then replaced by custom textures hand crafted by artists presumably working for the development studio that produced the original game, or a contractor hired on by its publisher / current rights holder.
