The PS5 Is Backward Compatible For Almost All PS4 Games

Let’s just say the 11 games that aren’t playable, you probably don’t care about anyway

Sony has finally spilled the beans on backward compatibility, and we have some good news. In a blog post, Sony has confirmed that all PlayStation 4 games, with the exception of 11 games will be playable on the PS5. That’s 11 unplayable games out of more than 4,000, so we’re going to go ahead and write this one off as a win.

Of all the games that aren’t compatible with the PlayStation 5, the only one that you’ll probably even recognize is Hitman Go: Definite Edition. The rest are, well, not important anyway.

Just to make sure that you’re aware, when Sony updates the PlayStation Store for the PS5, these 11 games will be marked as “Playable on: PS4 only.” It should also be noted that not all games will function exactly the same way the do on PS4.

“Some functionalities that were available on the PS4 console may not be available on PS5 consoles.”

Sony went on to say that some games might exhibit errors and bugs on the next-gen hardware, so it might not be all peaches and cream. On top of this, you won’t be able to see the Share menu while playing PS4 titles, but Sony assures us that you’ll still be able to use its functionality. Some games could also benefit from the PS5’s hardware, however, and see an increase in frame rate.

If you’re curious about how to transfer your PS4 games to your PS5, when you get it, then you should head over to Sony’s blog post. There are instructions for transferring games via WiFi, Physically installing then, or upgrading to the next-gen version of a game for those that are being ported over to next-gen hardware.
