10 PS4 Games That Won’t Be Running On PS5
A new page loaded with details about PlayStation 5 backward compatibility launched today on the official PlayStation website. Sony did include a new and comparatively short list of PS4 games that won’t be running on PS5.
The new support page is called “Backward compatibility: PlayStation®4 games playable on PlayStation®5” and comes with a list of 10 games that will not be playable on PS5.
- Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
- TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2
- Just Deal With It!
- Shadow Complex Remastered
- Robinson: The Journey
- We Sing
- Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
- Joe’s Diner
While this list is quite small which is a good thing and it is packed with some low-profile games, it’s also safe to think this isn’t the complete list. Sony also explained that games that won’t work on PS5 will be marked on the PlayStation Store as “Playable on PS4 only.”
While Sony does claim a bulk of PS4 games will be running on PS5, the language used on this support page does seem to suggest it expects some possible bugs and problems, stating: “In addition, some PS4 games may exhibit errors or unexpected behavior when played on PS5 consoles.”
Sony also recommends that players try out PS4 games on their new PS5 to make sure they are satisfied with the gaming experience before plopping down money on any additional content. Additionally, Sony did establish players will be able to not only download PS4 games to their PS5 but will also be able to carry these digital games via extended storage or Wi-Fi transfers.
Nowhere on this support page or on any other support page for the PS5 does Sony talk about PS3, PS2, or PS1 backward compatibility in the PlayStation 5. Back in August, a Ubisoft support page appeared to show that the PS5 will only support PS4 games, and while that page had that info removed now, it’s starting to look like it’s going to be true.
