PlayStation 5 Backward Compatibility

During the PS5 deep dive presentation, fans were expecting to get a direct answer to the question:

“Is the PS5 backward compatible with all PS4 and PS4 Pro titles?”

However, popular video game designer, Mark Cerny’s stated; “We recently took a look at the top 100 PS4 titles as ranked by playtime, and we’re expecting almost all of them to be playable at launch on the PS5,” he said.

This simply means that the PS5 features backward compatibility is only available to some PS4 titles. However, Cerny stated that they’ll continue testing the backward compatibility with other titles as well.

Meaning we can expect other PS4 titles to become playable on PS5 in the near future.

However, after launch, the PS5 console won’t play every PS4 and PS4 Pro titles, which some fans find disappointing.
