According to Hideaki Nishino, Sony's senior vice president of Platform Planning and Management, the PS5 is designed to be backward compatible with more than "99 percent" of PS4's 4,000+ game library, playable from launch day.The console is compatible with PlayStation VR.Because of PS5's high-speed SSD and increased processing power, many PS4 games gain from improved loading times or gameplay speeds "so that they can benefit from higher or more stable frame rates and potentially higher resolutions".

Players can synchronize their saved game files through cloud storage or transfer them using a USB storage device so no progress is lost. Backward compatibility is enabled in part by the similarity of hardware architecture, such as "extra logic" in the RDNA 2 GPU that ensures compatibility with PS4's GCN-based GPU. Mark Cerny explained during a March 2020 presentation and later in an interview with Digital Foundry how CPU clock timing required particular attention.

Although the Zen 2 CPU has an instruction set to handle the PS4's Jaguar CPU, their timings can be very different, so Sony worked closely with AMD when developing the Zen 2 CPU to more closely match the Jaguar's timings. PS5 backward compatibility may exhibit errors with some PS4 games, and does not include previous generations. The PlayStation 4's Share menu cannot be displayed but the Create button can capture screenshots and access the Create menu.On October 9, 2020 Sony released a list of ten PS4 games identified as being incompatible with PS5. [FROM THE WIKI]


Games That May Exhibit Errors on PS5 [FROM PUSHSQUARE]

While the vast majority of PS4 games will work on PS5 without any errors, Sony has marked some games on the PlayStation Store with the following warning: "When playing on PS5, this game may exhibit errors or unexpected behaviour and some features available on PS4 may be absent." It's important to note that any PS4 games carrying this message will load and be playable on the PS5, but they may exhibit errors like minor graphical glitches or bugs.

i wonder if their strategy is to make the disc version uglier than the digital version to slowly subconsciously push users in that direction.

well made OT - fits the ps5 aesthetic nicely

Since Gran Turismo 7 doesn't come out for a while I plan to start with some PS4 games since my last console was a PS3. When does the PlayStation Store's Black Friday event start? I'll probably grab some games then.

I pre-ordered mine in April, now I won't be getting it until the 13th of December at the earliest. Sony better kick TSMC's ass and get that yield and production up already!

One of Norway's largest electronics retailers. They obviously vastly over-estimated their allocation from Sony. But again, most people who want one here will have to wait until next year and even next summer to get a PS5 so I guess I shouldn't complain too much over an additional 3 weeks of waiting.

Excited to pick mine up Thursday at GameStop after work.

I got my LG OLED and new Sound System ready to experience next gen in all its glory.

And I'm planning on replaying a ton of old games and see all the 4k/HDR I missed out on last gen.

Thanks so much for the mention Komatsu Komatsu

You did an excellent job with the OT, it's really fantastic and it will be a great place to discuss and get hyped for the launch / launches (since we have two... 12th and 19th).

Maybe someone could start a hype train?

Two launches.. for twice the panic about getting pre order shipments on time or day one some other way.

So you guys think Demon Souls is the best looking videogame of all time?

Or still Crysis?
