Sony: compatibility with the previous version of PS5 focuses on PS4 games, nothing to say about PS1, PS2 and PS3

Sony Interactive Entertainment said that the company is focusing only on Compatibility with previous versions of PS5 with PS4 games at the moment, with no comment to offer on the system that plays PS1, PS2 and PS3 titles.

Compatibility update with previous versions of PS5 from Sony

The electronics maker had previously revealed that it is testing over 4,000 PS4 games to play on its current generation console, with no confirmed plans for other system titles at the moment. However, rumors persisted for months that PS5 would be able to play PS1, PS2 and PS3 games.

Microsoft’s Xbox X series offers full backward compatibility with all Xbox console games, so it’s no wonder people want to see Sony implement support for its larger PS5 back catalog. Solid Snake voice actor David Hayter said the company’s plans for PS5 in b / c are nearsighted.

A translation by Twitter’s BlackKite user of Sony Japan’s statement (released to GameSpark) reads as follows:

We focus [sic] working on PS4 BC so that users can switch to a new console with their PS4 libraries. There is nothing we can answer about BC with PS1, PS2 and PS3.

Sony will launch the PS5 on vacation 2020.
