Sony secretly formed a game preservation team, aiming to archive the history of the video game industry
Game conservation is not a new concept, but large developers and publishers often do not pay much attention to preserving games for generations to come. Many popular games have now been lost, only kept in some hidden corner of the Internet.
Maybe that’s why Sony created its own game conservation team. However, this hot information was not announced by Sony, but the gaming community discovered the existence of the game conservation team through a LinkedIn post.
Specifically, engineer Garrett Fredley posted a post boasting that he had just been recruited by Sony. He currently holds the role of senior civil engineer at Sony’s Game Conservation Team, and the person who created his promotion is Mike Bishop, global QA manager at PlayStation Studios.

Sony’s establishment of a game conservation team shows its efforts to preserve the games they have released exclusively on older PlayStation systems. Perhaps Sony aims to bring old games to new systems, allowing PS5 and later generations to play games from decades ago.
The trend of remakes (full remakes) and remasters (remakes of graphics) is still popular, and most gamers are still players with a lot of nostalgia. That’s why graphic remake games are still very popular, and developers are constantly announcing “new bottles of old” projects.
This direction may soon see the next turning point, which is the big companies developing their own emulators for old games. Not long ago, there was evidence that Nintendo was developing emulation software for the once famous Game Boy Color/Advance system.
