The words of the blogger could be ignored, butback in June, he announced the exact release date for The Last of Us Part 2, which was officially announced only in September. The PSErebus tweet also matches VICE Games journalist Patrick Keplek, who recently announced (56 minutes) during a podcast that the PlayStation 5 is not only the future, but also the past, and Sony plans to tackle the old franchises.
Given architectural differences if the PlayStation5 will be able to run games with PS3, PS2 and PS One, then only programmatically using an emulator. In addition, Sony has not yet decided whether their new console will be able to run all the games on the PS4. So you should take the words of the source with a share of skepticism.
