If you buy a new PS5 and combine the console with a paid PS Plus subscription, you will get a number of the best PS4 games as part of the PS Plus Collection for free. The promotion is actually limited to the PS5, but there is also a workaround to get the PS4 games from the collection to run on the old console.
The PlayStation Plus Collection is supposed to provide plenty of game feed for PS5 buyers – a collection of some of the best PS4 games that, thanks to a PS Plus subscription, can be downloaded and played free of charge on the new PlayStation 5, including optimizations. The action is actually limited to the PS5, but there are still opportunities to play the actual PS4 titles on the old console.
You can enjoy the collection when you log in to a new PS5 with your PS Plus account or if you take out a new subscription. The PS Plus Collection games will then be activated on this PSN account. These do not necessarily have to be downloaded directly, but can also initially be used for your own digital games library.
Since these are basically still the original PS4 games, these are now also available for download from the game library on a PlayStation 4. Basically, despite everything, at least a PS5 is necessary to enable activation, but this opens up more widespread possibilities for families and friends, because sharing the PSN account gives them access to the games. The remote play app also opens up new possibilities for households that only have one PS5 but several interested gamers.
