Summary List Placement

Suppose you’re an owner of Sony’s Playstation 4, and you’re thinking of upgrading to the next generation PlayStation console. In that case, there are several things you should take into consideration before deciding to put down $500 for a PS5. 

While the PS5 has faster loading speeds, 3D audio tech, a 4K UHD Blu-Ray drive, and more, one of its most significant features benefits PS4 console owners. Because the PS5 is largely backward compatible, this means that many elements of the PS4 experience are also forward compatible.

Forward compatibility is when an older console’s software can work on a newer console. In this case, many PS4 games are forward compatible, meaning they can run on a PS5.

Here’s what you should know about the PS4’s forward compatibility. 

The PS4 is forward compatible

Nearly every game released for the PlayStation 4 will also run on the PlayStation 5. All you’ll need to do is insert the disk, or transfer the data using a USB storage drive or Wi-Fi transfer.

There are only eight PS4 games that can’t transfer over to the PS5. They are:

“Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma Volume One”
“We Sing”
“Hitman Go: Definitive Edition”
“TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2”
“Just Deal With It!”
“Robinson: The Journey”
“Joe’s Diner”

Sony has also claimed that every game published for the PS4 from this point forward will also be playable on the PS5.

If you own newer big-budget titles like “Call of Duty: Warzone,” “Cyberpunk 2077”, or “Watch Dogs: Legion,” your games might also be eligible for a free next-gen upgrade when you port them over to your PS5. These upgrades will ideally offer better graphics and performance speed.

Not all titles are upgradeable, however, and not all upgrades are free. Several games can be upgraded, but you might need to pay for it. The games’ publishers, not Sony, determine the upgrade cost.

And while it’s great that there are some PS5 games playable on the PS4, you may want to be selective about the number of titles you bring to your PS5. Its limited storage capacity can fill up fast, and may quickly force you to invest in an external hard drive.

Which PS4 games are forward compatible

Several PS4 games can receive a free or paid upgrade right now. Here’s a list of the currently available free games, followed by the paid upgrades. Some of the paid options come in bundles, and may have fine print noting that it’s not an upgrade but a save transfer option.
