Sony has confirmed that nearly every PlayStation 4 title will, in fact, be playable on PlayStation 5.  The company stated in an updated blog post today.

“A quick update on backward compatibility.  With all of the amazing games in PS4’s catalog, we’ve devoted significant efforts to enable our fans to play their favorites on PS5. We believe that the overwhelming majority of the 4,000+ PS4 titles will be playable on PS5,” the post states.

This new info clears up the confusion revealed by Sony originally.  That the upcoming console would be compatible with almost all the “Top 100” PlayStation 4 titles, out of the over 4,000 released.  So, its good to see Sony be more specific regarding backward compatibility.

PlayStation 5 will release this later this year.  Price and specific dates are still to be announced.  In the meantime, Sony also revealed the system’s specifications, which you can view here.
