In comparison to its primary competition, Sony hasn’t focused as heavily on backwards compatibility in regards to the PlayStation 5.
Yes, there has been a few games confirmed to be playable on both the PlayStation 4 and 5. However, it hasn’t been as prolific in detailing them.
Until now, that is.
Sony took to a recent blog post detailing what games will be making the jump to next-gen. As the post notes, an “overwhelming majority of Ps4 games” will be backwards compatible. This equates to “an amazing collection of thousands [in excess of 4,000] PS4 games” being available on the PS5.
However, there will be games not available on the PS5. As such, these PS4 games will be labelled on the PlayStation Store as “Playable on: PS4 only” games. The following games will be “PS4 only”;
- 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
- Joe’s Diner
