Huge PlayStation 5 leaks all but confirms backward compatibility is coming to the console.
Litifyed has made a deep dive into some leaked tests on the rumored CPU that will be powering the PlayStation 5 and we came up with some precious knowledge.
We have observed that the PS5 looks to be backward compatible with both the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
It might not really look like much of a big deal to you, but it true, it’s going to be the first time in history that Sony has left their older games. But only by streaming them from Sony’s servers.
PlayStation 5 spec leak seems to confirm one of your most wanted features.
See, when you look at the data for the upcoming GPU for the PS5, Digital Foundry found something interesting indeed. The GPU has three different modes, two of which just happen to match the performance details of the base PS4 and PS4 Pro. This points to backward compatibility being a baked-in feature for the PS5, at least for PS4 era games.
While this picture is mostly speculation built on the back of the leaked tests, the PlayStation 5 is going to be a monster for gaming obviously.
Let’s not forget that developers managed to squeeze far more performance out of the existing consoles than they could out of PCs of similar specs.
