According to research conducted by Hikikomori Media, which you can check out in the video below, Sony’s PS5 can now run games both digitally and physically even when its CMOS battery either dies or gets removed somehow. The CMOS battery is commonly referred to as the console’s internal clock, and previous tests on the subject revealed that once the battery dies, almost all of the console’s games would be rendered useless.

Now, though, it seems that players will be able to play both physical and digital games without the CMOS battery. Games claimed through a subscription of PS Plus won’t boot, however. Despite this, it’s great news for preservation of games and the system itself, as one day, years from now, servers for the console’s online services will inevitably be shut down.

Sony received a lot of flak for not giving due attention to game preservation lately, with the original tests and the news of PS3, PSP and PS Vita store shutdowns coming in a relatively short interval. Sony has taken back the shutdown decision for PS3 and PS Vita for now, so here’s hoping things improve going forward.
