The downward compatibility of the new consoles has been a big issue in the past, with Microsoft in particular relying on the Xbox Series X / S as much as possible with titles from earlier generations. Sony would like to support at least the PS4 as much as possible and has now commented in more detail for the first time.
Microsoft route has long been clear, as the company probably communicated no topic more emphatically than the backward compatibility of the Xbox Series X / S
After it was recently announced for the first time that with over 4,000 titles the vast majority of PS4 titles should also be able to run on the PlayStation 5, the support page has now been updated and further details are given. Among other things, there is also an initial list of PS4 games
The 10 PS4 Games So Far Known That Will Not Work On PS5:
- Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
- TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2
- Just Deal With It!
- Shadow Complex Remastered
- Robinson: The Journey
- We Sing
- Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
- Joe's Diner
Sony points out that this list may change in the future; therefore, further exclusion titles are also possible.
Selected PS4 titles will make use of the “Game Boost” feature – including Ghost of Tsuhisma, as we recently reported. By using this feature, it is possible to display PS4 games on the PS5 at a higher frame rate.
The PS5 will be released on November 12th in the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The rest of the world, will be served on November 19th.
