The Sony Computer Company has announced an extensive lineup of backup-compatible games from the PlayStation4 to the PlayStation5. There are more than 4,000+ available titles to select from your old library & port over to the PS5. Backwards-compatibility is exclusive to the PS5 Digital Version and requires gamers to have purchased their older copy via the PS Store.
Game functionality & social media support are being lost with backwards-compatible games. It means that features developed to correlate PS4 peripherals won’t be available on the PS5. This includes the Share PS Service and Touch Bar Support. For most titles developed on the PlayStation4, the lack of these functionalities won’t disable core gameplay.
After announcing that gameplay functionalities & social media support is being disabled with PS5 backwards-compatible titles, the Sony Computer Company revealed eleven games that won’t support a next-generation upgrade. These are the exclusive eleven games on the PS4 library that won’t become backwards compatible for PlayStation5. Below are those 11 titles.
- Hitman Go: Definite Edition
- TT Isle of Man RE2
- Shadow Complex Remastered.
- Just Deal With It!
- Afro Samurai Two.
- We Sing Collection.
- Joe’s Diner.
- Robinson: The Journey.
Most of these titles aren’t familiar for gamers, with Hitman & TT Isle of Man being the exclusive properties with any notable prominence. Every memorable game developed for the PS4 will become playable & downloadable via the PlayStation Store. Players will notice a “Playable on PS4” logo across all titles with backwards-compatibility. Furthermore, gamers that haven’t initially purchased the backwards compatible title can buy-it via the PS5 Store. However, that copy will become exclusive for the PS5.
Prompts are being issued by Sony, indicating that “Errors” could become exhibited with some backwards compatible games. For those minor problems, there are multiple benefits. PS5 is supporting “Game Boost”, which permits higher framerates & visual upgrades to most backwards compatible titles. The Game Booth technology is essentially remastering older games without the need for an extensive studio.
The best titles to port from the PS4 to the PS5 via backwards-compatibility is listed down below.
- God of War 2019.
- Ghosts of Tsushima.
- Uncharted 4: A Thieves End.
