    I glad to skip PS1, PS2 and PS3 due to different chip. PS4 and PS5 use AMD chip because of cheap to make and more afford.

    I'm happy to own my PS4 system and PS4 disc games collection that I bought from some stores.

    99% compatibility for all PS4 games are able to run on PS5 system is so wonderful news for us then we don't have to worry about problems. That's sweet news! Congrats!!! :)

    one was road rash, the other is an extremely oscure jrpg, they both are victims of an obscure bug, also forgot to mention, the Super Gameboy will play them due to being based on the DMG

    i said it on another comment here, but while hardware BC would be expensive, emulation BC is not, in fact, they had ps1 BC on all ps3 models because of this

    So very true, they could emulate those games (probably some with required for PS3) with practically no work required at all.

    Either they had planned further "PS Mini / NES Mini style systems when this decision was made, or they simply want to Nintendo things up, charging for decades old games you already own several times over.

    No excuse really, the fact Microsoft have been si aggressive and on form with their strategy lately only adds insult.

    PS2 too was easy to emulate for Sony on PS3 and PS4.
    I think the PS5 would be more than capable to emulate PS3 as well, but business decisions may exclude those platforms.

    On one hand, I don't think it would be realistic to expect backwards compatibility with games from 4 generations ago.

    On the other, considering the new consoles are basically just mid-range PCs, I would expect the company that actually made the hardware for those old consoles to be able to make emulators that are at least as good as the ones made by fans in their free time, if they wanted to.

    Sounds like the PS2 is still going to be the best-selling console in the U.S. after this one's run. On the plus side, Rock Band 4 will be playable on the PS5! :D

    Watch as the inevitable PS5 Slim drops the PS4 backwards compatibility.

    Lol, this shouldn't be the case, there is no specialized hardware required to support PS4 that they could remove to cut down costs.

    Not just that, but you also have projects that are taking pre-rendered BGs from games like any of the Final Fantasies on PS1 not named Tactics or a port marred by loading times and upscaling them to look better on modern displays.

    And I still think they could've sold it as a separate adapter or something for the later models of the PS3 for those who wanted the feature like how they sold the classic memory card adapter. A small case that plugs into the USB port of a PS3 Slim, that added PS2 BC for all games that had the SoC inside of it.

    And considering how badly RE8 was slowing down with that one trailer earlier this year, it's looking like both systems are starting on shaky ground. I mean, is the PS5 even launching with a new game? As in, it isn't a glorified remaster with extra stuff, but a brand new, made-exclusively-for-PS5 game at launch? Because I've heard and seen announcements and reveals, but not much in terms of what's going to be available at launch. We already know Microsoft is just selling a system that will only be playing previous gen games at launch, with nothing new to come until at least next year, so I'm now curious who's going to be coming out on more stable ground at launch here?

    Eh...I mean, are they? What games that actually look good that are exclusive to their systems are there that people are excited about?

    If anything, the problem they have is that, at launch, the system is just for playing your old games, which is fine, I would recommend someone who's interested in the Xbox platform get the Series X if they wanted to play on those consoles, but for those looking for a good selection of games that are for the system they're buying? Halo Infinite didn't impress with that Donkey Kong alien earlier, that's for sure!

    I love how everyone still bitches about it not supporting backward compatability, it wasnt exactly a feature on demand, you all just bitch for the sake of been bitches.

    Its very highly likely that those who still play ps1,2,3 games still own the original console.

    ...probably because they either have other options to play those games, or are hoping to get an AIO device in the next system. Or, maybe the original console's disc drive bit the dust? That was a common issue with Slim PS2s, you know!

    seriously? cannot they just use the open source emulators and put it there? I understand if ps3 emulation is next to impossible, but it's unreasonable that a ps5 cannot emulate ps1 and ps2 games. sony could have made a custom emulators based on those open source emulators and integrate them with classic psn titles, yet they don't do it.

    But you all seem to think this has been something sony always did.

    They did it once, no fucker else did it or does it, yes even xbox doesnt do it, they emulate titles they want.

    I dont see anyone bitching at nintendo or microsoft because you cant just slap any game in and play it.

    And even if your console bit the dust, only costs like £10 to get another.

    The development on RE8 for PS5 is being difficult, as ps5 can't keep the game running at a stable framerate..One developer mentioned the game is always crashing and having slowdowns on multiple points. He also mentioned the game is running perfect smooth on Series X with no problems, struggles or whatsoever. This is happening cause ps5 is not really next as their hardware is not optimized enough for it..
