    Is it just for PS4 and selected games? No PS1, PS2 or PS3 games as BC?

    If it's just selected PS4 games then that's kinda disappointing.

    afaik, it's just ps4. I think sony said it was limited bc on ps4 as well, like it was only the top 100 games or so at launch. and, what I think may be worse is that it may be only digital versions of games like with the vita.

    well, if you read between the lines, they said top 100 "at launch" which suggests it's a work in progress. @KiiWii yesterday tweeted that it's been confirmed that you must keep your system up to date to use ps4 bc or at least when it comes to adding new games.

    I’m also adding PS5 compatibility to FRMCHK.
    Currently it’s simpler to add the inverse lol.

    I couldn't find the specific link/rumor about top 100 at launch, but there are multiple articles referring to it, so sony must've said it originally, then changed their tune when xbox said four generations bc. I mean are there even 4,000 titles for the ps4? they were probably counting regions as being separate titles. it's all about semantics. sony may say it's going to be bc for the majority of titles, which may be true, but they don't mention "at launch" afaik, so it's deliberately misleading.
