PS5 won’t support PS3 games – that makes Xbox Series X a winner


The much-awaited next-gen gaming consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X will be releasing soon later this year. But, before the release, we’ve heard about the incapability of PS5 that gives a winning card to Xbox Series X. PS5 won’t compatible with the PS3, PS2, and PS1 games. And there is no reason to deny this fact because the disclosure has been out by one of the most superior Sony’s PlayStation executives. So, if you are thinking of playing PS3 or earlier consoles games on PS5 then you won’t be able to do so. 

President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, said to the Japanese gaming terminal named Famitsu that because the PS5 is focusing on the next-gen console strength and attributes so that’s a good reason for this. He stated the company had mutually chosen to focus on the next-gen PS5’s freakish and extraordinary functions while developing it, viz the latest design SSD and DualSense controller rather than the rearward compatibility. Although, the compatibility for the PS4 library was enforced because of its large install base. 

In reply to the question of PS3, PS2, and PS3 compatibility with next-gen digital PS5, Jim Ryan cited as responding, We have been developing devices with a core-centric point on PS5 particular science-based design. Moreover, PS4 already has more than 100 million players, so its a treat to players that they can be able to play PS4 games on PS5 too. So, it’s glassy-clear that PS4 is highly compatible with the PS5. For achieving the feat in the high-speed section, we centric on combining high-speed SSDs and the most recent controller “DualSense” in correspondence. So, unfortunately, we have to break the room by stating that PS3 and earlier ones won’t be compatible with PS5

However, this sad news had previously come to the spotlight from an article, which mentioned clearly that PS5 will be compatible with the PS4 but will not be support PS3, PS2, and PS1. But, now one of the most senior executives gives green light to this news, so as of now there is no doubt left for refusing the facts. Luckily, you’ll still play some older form of games through Sony’s gaming streaming service, PS Now. Don’t get befuddled with the PS Plus Collection, it is a new PS advantage that doesn’t charge any extra cost of the PS Plus subscription, but offers a pitiful selection of PS4 games to play. 

Moving forward, talking about the PS5, then as of now, it is available for pre-order, though, the process for the same hasn’t been going accurately so far. And it will reach on stores racks on 12 November in the US and customers’ place as well. Along with this, a few days later of its launch, i.e., on 19 November its highly advanced super-fast SSD, DualSense Controllers, and other new advanced technology will also make the way to come. When it comes to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S then it will be available for pre-order from 22 September, and reach at your place or in-stores on November 10.
