Sadly, you might have to ditch your older PS4
games for the latest console.
Sony reveals that some of the older PS4 games
could “exhibit errors or unexpected behavior” when they run on the Play Station 5.
The next-gen PS5 will be compatible with more than
4,000 PS4 games, a number Sony claims is the “overwhelming majority.” However,
Sony details the backward compatibility of some of the games on PS5 consoles.
Here’s the list of games that won’t be compatible
on the PS5 at all:
DWVR, Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One, Just Deal with It!, TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, Shadow Complex Remastered, We sing, Robinson: The Journey, Shadwen, Hitman Go: Definitive Edition, Joe’s Diner!
Users may also face a few general PS5 backward compatibility restrictions for PS4 games. There will be no ‘share menu’ within PS4 games that run on the
PS5, and you can’t take a screenshot using the create button on a DualSense
controller. Moreover, you can’t have a tournament feature of PS4 games on the
PS5, nor in-game live feature, game companion apps or second-screen apps.
