The PS5 supports backwards compatibility with the PS4, and Sony says the vast majority of PS4 games will be playable on the new system. However, there are a select few games that will not be compatible, and we now know exactly what they are.
A support page on the official PlayStation website lists 10 games that will not be playable on PS5. The list includes some VR content, and it doesn’t feature any enormous titles. The games you’ll likely want to keep playing when you get your PS5 will still work.
PS5-Incompatible PS4 Games
- Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma – Volume One
- TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2
- Just Deal With It!
- Shadow Complex Remastered
- Robinson: The Journey
- We Sing
- Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
- Joe’s Diner
All you need to do to play the game on the PS5 is put it into the disc drive and potentially download an update. If it’s a digital game, Sony says you’ll be able to use WiFi data transfer, but it didn’t specify how this will work. Should there be a PS5 upgrade available, Sony also detailed that process.
You’ll also be able to keep using a DualShock 4 controller to play the PS4 games, though it won’t work on PS5 games. PlayStation Move and PlayStation VR Aim controllers will be supported, as well.
Microsoft is also supporting the vast majority of Xbox One games on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, with the exception of Kinect-only games. The same backward compatible original Xbox and Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One will be playable on the new hardware, as well.
PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition both release on November 12. Check out our PS5 preorder guide for the latest information, including where to find games and accessories.
