PlayStation 5 set to be Backwards Compatible with CD-based Sega Consoles

Editor's Note: The astute amongst you will have probably noticed the date on this article already. This April Fools gag was brought to you by GameGrin.com

Backwards compatibility has been a big deal in the world of console gaming lately, with Sony and Microsoft both hoping to tempt players in with a pre-existing backlog of games already available. However, Sony has managed to secure something of an unusual ace up their sleeve, with the announcement of backwards compatibility not only with their own consoles, but with one of their former competitors. 

The PS5 will not only play PS1-PS5 discs, but also those for Sega’s old consoles. This includes the Dreamcast, Saturn, and the Mega CD. Not only will the titles play, but they will play in upscaled 4K, meaning that games like Road Avenger, Night Trap and Snatcher will look better than they ever have done. It’s not been confirmed if this compatibility is through a hardware or software emulation, but we’ll have more news for you as it comes in.
