Seems like alot of people don't believe that Ps5 is backwards compatible with ps4. Sony has already confirmed that Ps5 is backwards compatible with ps4.

The only people who wouldn't believe it would be people who didn't see the articles about it yet.

I see a lot of comments that Sony has not confirmed yet for backwards compatibility

Yeah, but...

Given how shady and greedy Sony has become, it will be locked behind some subscription service separate from PS Plus.

I have an uneasy feeling about ps5 playing ps4 games. Why would people buy a brand new system to be able to buy a ps4 game? I think there will be ps5 only exclusive games later on that will extinguished the ps4. Nintendo did it with the launched 3ds. They can play ds games but later on ds games are not created any longer and 3ds games follow afterward. They say the same s*** everytime on each new generation of console and or handheld.

Remember when Nintendo say we will still support Wii u when the switch came out.
Nintendo say, we will still support the ds when 3ds came out.
Nintendo again say, we will support the 3ds when the switch came out.
Now look at what happen afterward. There are hardly any new Wii u titles and 3ds coming out. There might be some but fewer.

Sony is not any different than Nintendo with this stand. It's just words but believe in it with a spoonful of salt in it. Don't believe everything they say 100%. There will be moderation down the line.

What the hell are you talking about?

Of course the previous systems will eventually stop being supported. That's how it has always worked, with every system.

let me try and tell you what he meant . thier big selling point to get you to buy the system is just that old games can be played on this system . there is no word on how long they will support it.people think it for the life of the system

I'm not sure they are Sony fans. Maybe they're console warriors on either Xbox or Nintendo.
