PS5 Backward Compatibility Finally Explained + Avengers Disassemble - IGN News Live
On today’s show, we’ll be diving into the PS5 Backwards compatibility. Sony has confirmed PS4 to PS5 save transfers and which PS4 games are not backwards compatible with the PS5, Marvel’s Avengers game sees a significant drop in its playerbase but the devs are confident you'll return, the new live-action XBOX Series X commercial featuring Daniel Kaluuya, and the gigantic Japanese script for Cyberpunk 2077.

    You can transfer your save data for your ps4 game to ps5, the part that is at the devs discretion is the data transfer between ps4 titles and ps5 titles that are cross-platform.

    What about the games purchased through the ps store like streets of rage 4 , Blasphemous, hollow knight & etc ?

    Sony's main priority is more on creating exclusive games. Back compat is just a feature for them... A great feature that is imo.

      Ugh that’s what everyone says when they give them praise. Last video someone said IGN is biased because their video was sponsored by a Sony branch that had nothing to do with gaming.

      Not really how that works. In a big corporate environment, that stuff is very controlled. Sony just isnt in the conversation with how they are marketing next gen by drip feeding information while xbox is giving so many journalists preview units to use and have been marketing the console for months now.

    Sony still can't get it right. Maybe MS can help them again

  • KlassicKrusty

    I hope they make PS3 b/c a priority eventually once they have a team of engineers that can fill the bill.

    Quit wasting time and money on backward comp....if people want to play their old games they should just keep their old consoles. New consoles should be only new games

    • Gareth Brown

      Next Gen Consoles are more appealing if you can carry over your current collection of games. It's a logical thing to do from a business viewpoint. Purchasing a next gen console to only have the launch titles available will put some people off. People will then wait until the library of games fills up. PS4 had a terrible launch and was only appealing imo 6 months after release. I just hope that these new consoles aren't plagued with bugs and problems.

    Being able to play PS4 games on PS5 is backwards compatibility?

    • Albastine S.

      @Mazgic they have a patent to cloud game older titles.dunno how that will work out for us tho. PSNow I guess.

    • Albastine S.
      Albastine S.

      @Un Known ps3 is the wrinkle in the mix. Its architecture was impenetrable difficult to code for and is super custom. Backwards compatibility to older gens isnt that big of a deal since most dont have their old game discs. If it was, xbox would be killing it because xbox has Backwards Compatibility coverage going back to the original xbox. Sony needs to invest in a virtual console ala nintendo. That would be cool. Buy old games to play on an emulator etc. Maybe increases in quality, online multiplayer etc.

    • Mazgic

      @Un Known bro its like 10 games. 4000+ games confirmed to work.

      @Mazgic I got no problem with Sony only making PS4 games backwards compatible. I'm probably gonna get a PS5 just for the new games and exclusives, and then get an Xbox Series X because of its power and vast backwards compatible library of games. I already got a modded PS3 slim that can play PS2 games so it really doesn't bother me. Gonna keep my PS4 pro though cause they said some PS4 games might have issues running on the PS5.

    Wished The Avengers had much more story as the campaign was fun, but the aftermath stuff just has zero appeal. More episodic content and story will help... but the game may be a bit of a lost cause at this point. If The Avengers 2 ever happens, maybe follow the Tomb Raider angle and make it a 40-hour single player game with DLC...?

  • JoanDaBomb

    Soo I can still play far cry 3??
