PS5, Sony responds on used games and full backwards compatibility

> Some details on PS5 are still obscure even after the official presentation which took place over two weeks ago, and of course the backward compatibility stands out in a state of development and testing.

The Japanese portal GameSpark asked Sony directly if there is any news about it and if it is possible that the new console will support the entire PlayStation catalog.

This would include games from the first PlayStation up to the current-gen , a rumor on PS5 that has been around for some time but ended up being discarded also because of the technical complications that such a solution would entail.

The spokesman for the Japanese company, however, preferred to gliss on the subject, and this is perceived as a sign of openness and which, if nothing else, would give the idea of ​​how it is still trying to understand the feasibility of a complete backward compatibility.

If from this point of view we are talking about speculation or little more, Sony clarified an aspect that evidently remained pending after the reveal at the beginning of June.

The spokesman confirmed that the physical games for PS4 used could be used to obtain the upgrades for the versions PlayStation 5 , if publishers offered updates – as in the case of EA with FIFA 21 – since the platform will not enjoy its Xbox-style Smart Delivery.

However, it has not been able to confirm whether the disc for PlayStation 4 will be required to run the updated version, a very probable hypothesis seen that exactly worked between PS3 and PS4.

PlayStation 5 is on the launching pad for the end of 2020 with a dual release: one with a Blu-ray player , which will be needed to obtain these upgrades from PS4, and a Digital Edition without reader.
