Backward compatibility is one of the most wanted features in a game console. Sony's track record with backward compatibility has been pretty inconsistent. While the PS2 could play all PS1 games, later versions of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 did not support backwards compatibility. However, much to the delight of fans, the PlayStation 5 will support backwards compatibility.
While Sony has promised almost the entire PS4 library will be backwards compatible, a few titles have been left out. Here is a list of titles that will not be playable on the PlayStation 5.
- Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
- TT Ile de Man – Ride on the Edge 2
- Deal with it!
- Remastered Shadow Complex
- Robinson: The Journey
- We sing
- Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
- Joe's Diner
While this may be disappointing for fans of the titles mentioned above, it's good to see that the list only contains a small number of titles. This means that a large majority of the PlayStation 4's library will be backwards compatible - something Sony promised earlier. The PlayStation 4 has quite an impressive library, and with Sony extending support for these games to the PlayStation 5, users won't be short of games to play on the PlayStation 5 anytime soon.
