Sony says 4,000+ PS4 titles will be backwards compatible on PS5

Sony is now saying that over 4,000 PS4 titles will be backwards compatible on PS5. It was only last week when Sony’s Mark Cerny said that only 100 titles will be backwards compatible at launch.

A quick update on backward compatibility – With all of the amazing games in PS4’s catalog, we’ve devoted significant efforts to enable our fans to play their favorites on PS5. We believe that the overwhelming majority of the 4,000+ PS4 titles will be playable on PS5.
~Hideaki Nishino at Sony.

We’re expecting backward compatible titles will run at a boosted frequency on PS5 so that they can benefit from higher or more stable frame rates and potentially higher resolutions. We’re currently evaluating games on a title-by-title basis to spot any issues that need adjustment from the original software developers.
In his presentation, Mark Cerny provided a snapshot into the Top 100 most-played PS4 titles, demonstrating how well our backward compatibility efforts are going. We have already tested hundreds of titles and are preparing to test thousands more as we move toward launch. We will provide updates on backward compatibility, along with much more PS5 news, in the months ahead. Stay tuned!
Lance McDonald has taken to Twitter to sum up the situation nicely.


We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
