Finally, PlayStation is taking retro gaming seriously

A Tweet from PlayStation senior build engineer Garrett Fredley has got the internet buzzing. The game developer revealed he has begun a new job at a new Game Preservation division inside PlayStation; Tweeting he has begun “working as one of their initial hires for the newly created Preservation team!”

It appears Sony is finally getting serious about preserving its fantastic back catalog of PlayStation games. For years Sony’s approach to game preservation has been lackluster. In 2018 Sony did release the PlayStation Classic Console, as found in our best retro gaming consoles guide, but this was met with muted reviews due to some poor emulation and a mixed games list.
