Fans Think PlayStation Might Be Teasing PS1, PS2, PS3 Backwards Compatibility

1, 2, 3.

A PlayStation Japan tweet has blown up overnight, because fans think that it might be teasing PS1, PS2, and PS3 backwards compatibility. Said tweet teases a new PlayStation ad — launching on the 23rd January — which will feature a new song from Japanese popstar and music producer Kenshi Yonezu.

So where’s all the backwards compatibility speculation coming from? Well, the teaser highlights the numbers 1, 2, and 3. That’s the date on which this teased advertisement is going to air — again, the 23rd January, styled as 1.23 — but why this date, and what’s the advert for? Could the chosen date tie into this being about PS1, PS2, and PS3 games?

PS5 Backwards Compatibility Tease

Honestly, it seems like a bit of a reach to us — but the emphasis on 1 2 3 does raise an eyebrow. We don’t know why Sony would push such a big deal in Japan specifically, though — and through Twitter alone. And, let’s be real for a moment, the numbers could quite easily relate to the song itself, and this is simply just the start of a new advertising campaign in Japan.

If something does happen (we’re growing more cynical by the minute) then it would also mean that Sony is planning to drop a huge announcement in the West either very late on a Saturday night, or relatively early on a Sunday. Unorthodox, but we suppose that stranger things have happened.

What do you make of this? As always, we’d advise against getting hyped beyond all reason in the comments section below.
