We know that Sony has recently been on a roll with their extraordinary discoveries and the next-gen console, the PS5, scheduled to launch on November 12. Yesterday, the company discovered a couple of video games that will be available at launch. Sony has also acclaimed the price range for first-party titles on the PS5, and whether they will be available on the older generation, PS4.
From what it seems, Sony’s CEO has risen his voice regarding this question. First-party titles should be a part of the PS4, and most of the first-party PS5 titles will also be available on the PS4. It appears that there might be some software iteration that would allow PS4 users to play next-gen PS5 titles.
Some of the games that were confirmed to receive a free PS5 upgrade, but were guaranteed to be available on the PS4 was Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon Forbidden West, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, while Demon’s Souls is also among the considered titles to support the older piece of hardware.
In a recent interview with Washingtonpost.com, Sony’s CEO, Jim Ryan, stated what could be an indicator of next-generation games being available to play on the PS4.
“The PS4 community will continue to be incredibly important to us for three or four years”
This could mean continuing the life-cycle of the PS4 for at least a couple more years before every development project solely focuses the PS5 as the only and final destination.
