PS5 Backwards Compatibility is going to be better than we thought

When PS5 lead architect Mark Cerny spoke in detail about the PS5 in Sony’s recent live stream, it sounded that the backwards compatibility with PS4 games was going to be limited to the top 100 games, although it seems that the messaging was unclear.

Sony have since updated the situation, claiming that the overwhelming majority of the 4000+ PS4 games will be playable on the new console from launch.

Sony have also said that they expect PS4 games to run at a boosted frequency on PS5, with the potential for higher or more stable frame-rates and increased resolutions.

PS5 is due for release at the end of the year, although you would be very much forgiven to be skeptical about this release window.
