Speaking to GamingBolt in a recently interview, Ozan Drøsdal – the creative lead for upcoming narrative adventure title Helheim Hassle at indie studio Perfectly Paranormal – gave his thoughts on this disparity. And though he expressed disappointment at the lack of legacy backward compatibility in the PS5, he said that ultimately, the thing that will matter the most will be the new games that release for both consoles.
“It is a little disappointing to hear that we still can’t use our PS2 libraries without dusting off the ol’ PS2,” Drøsdal said. “It is exciting to hear that we can use the original Xbox games on the Series X. But I reckon which console to choose will always boil down to the current gen of games anyway. Or you can always get both if you save up like crazy!”
