Sony reconfirms that the vast majority of PS4 games will work on PS5

Despite Sony being somewhat vague in the past when it came to PS5 backwards compatibility, it turns out that nearly all PS4 games will work on their latest console after all.

Initially revealed through their support page, Sony reiterated on the PlayStation Blog that only a negligible number of PS4 games would not work on the PS5. As long as you’re not planning on playing one of these 10 PS4-only games, you’re good to go:

  • DWVR
  • 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
  • Shadwen
  • Joe’s Diner

This means that PS VR titles will work — though you need a free PS Camera adaptor — and game saves are transferable both directly from PS4 consoles and the cloud via PS+.

Between this and the PS5 teardown video a few days ago, Sony are finally giving answers to questions people have been asking for months.
