New information on backward compatibility on PS5. We know what games we won't run

Sony has finally revealed the details of the backward compatibility on PlayStation 5. We know which titles we will definitely not play.


The PlayStation 5 will be released in just over a month, but Sony still has a lot of cards to discover for its new console. Fans interested in backward compatibility finally got new information. The entry from the official PlayStation support ensures that we will run over four thousand games from PlayStation 4 on the new generation equipment.

Selected titles will benefit from the Game Boost feature, thanks to which games will run at a higher number of frames, ensuring smoother gameplay. Unfortunately, some titles played on PS5 will lose their features available on PS4, and other productions may show errors or unexpected behavior when launching them on a new generation console.

Sony encourages you to check each title for backward compatibility before purchasing any add-ons. The company also recommends updating your console so your PS4 games should perform better.

We also got to know the list of titles that we will definitely not play on PlayStation 5. Fortunately, it is not long and you will not find the biggest hits on it. The following titles will be marked in the store as only available on PlayStation 4. This is the list mentioned above:

  • DWVR
  • Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
  • TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2
  • Just Deal With It!
  • Shadow Complex Remastered
  • Robinson: The Journey
  • We Sing
  • Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
  • Shadwen
  • Joe’s Diner

It has also been confirmed that the PS4 discs will work on the latest Sony console. In order to start the game, we will have to insert the CD into the drive every time. Some items in backwards compatibility will use the new PlayStation 5 feature, thanks to which we will choose what elements of the game are to be installed on the disk.

We found out that DualShock 4 and other licensed pads will work on PlayStation 5 in backward-compatible games. However, there is nothing to prevent us from using the DualSense that comes with the console. At the same time, earlier information was confirmed that the PS4 pad will not be compatible with PlayStation 5 games.
