PS5: Backward Compatibility Is Essential for a Soft Transition

The CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, talked about the backward compatibility of PlayStation 5 during the meeting with the shareholders of the company which also saw the presence of some journalist of the Japanese press.

Ryan states that ” backward compatibility is necessary to make the transition between PS4 and PS5 as quick and painless as possible for consumers “. This is a very popular feature even when switching between PS2 / PS3 and PS3 / PS4 and Sony has tried to please the community with PlayStation Now even if it is something completely different.

With the arrival of PlayStation 5, however, things will change and Sony will focus more on compatibility: ” Backward compatibility, as mentioned, is essential to avoid damaging the community and we are never convinced as it is now, ” says SIE CEO which also reaffirms the desire to launch Cross-Gen games compatible with PlayStation 4 and PS5.
