PlayStation 5 May Natively Play Older PlayStation Games; Console Is About The Past And The Future – Rumor

Francesco De Meo

Backward compatibility has become a big thing thanks to the Xbox One feature that allows players to enjoy select Xbox 360 and Xbox games. Sony has been somewhat left behind in this regard, but it seems like the PlayStation 5 will come with the ability to play all PlayStation titles natively.

As reported by Mystic, Twitter user PSErebus recently tweeted that players shouldn't sell their PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 games in preparation of the PlayStation 5 release, hinting that something may be brewing regarding backward compatibility. PSErebus proved to be extremely reliable, as he has revealed PlayStation information, such as The Last of Us Part 2 release date before the official announcement.

This tweet falls in line with what Patrick Keplek recently revealed regarding the PlayStation 5, saying that the console is about the past as much as it is about the future. If it can play all PlayStation games natively, it would be extremely huge, giving the console a massive library right at launch.

Sony strongly hinted that PlayStation 4 games will be playable on the PlayStation 5, so there may be some truth in this rumor. As Sony has yet to elaborate on the matter, however, we have to take everything with a grain of salt.

The PlayStation 5 will sport, among many other improvements over the PlayStation 4, faster load times and a controller with haptics enhancements.

Even though it will be fairly fast to boot games, we don't want the player to have to boot the game, see what's up, boot the game, see what's up. Multiplayer game servers will provide the console with the set of joinable activities in real time. Single-player games will provide information like what missions you could do and what rewards you might receive for completing them—and all of those choices will be visible in the UI. As a player, you just jump right into whatever you like.

The PlayStation 5 console will be released during Holiday 2020 worldwide. We will keep you updated on the console as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
