PlayStation 5 presented its official characteristics last day and one of the words that most resonated with fans was those spoken by Mark Cerny, architect responsible for the console, when he stated that only the 100 most played PS4 games would be backwards compatible on PS5. Sony has updated the post where the novelties of the console were told, offering more details about the backward compatibility of PlayStation 5.
"With all the amazing games in the PS4 catalog, we have dedicated significant efforts so that our fans can play their favorites on PS5. We believe that the vast majority of the more than 4,000 PS4 titles will be playable on PS5.
“We hope that backward compatible titles will run at an increased frequency on PS5 so that they can take advantage of higher or more stable FPS speeds and potentially higher resolutions. We are currently evaluating games title by title to detect any issues that need tweaking by the original software developers ». So we can expect that Backward compatible titles take advantage of PS5 hardware enhancements
Finally, they give us details of the ambition of the team and the catalog of PS4 games that could finally come to PS5. “In his presentation, Mark Cerny provided a snapshot of the 100 most played PS4 titles, demonstrating how well our past compatibility efforts are going. We've already tested hundreds of titles and are preparing to test thousands more as we move towards launch. We'll provide updates on backward compatibility, along with many more PS5 news, in the coming months. Pay attention!"
We can expect, then, that ahead of the launch of PS5 we have more than 100 backwards compatible games on the console and over time, that almost the entire catalog can be enjoyed on the new Sony console.
