PS5 Backward Compatible?
08/09/19 at 18:59:27
 
There are many rumors about the PS5 having full backwards compatibility but until its confirmed we won't know if it is or not true. Here's the question to everyone if its fully BC will Sony open the servers for TMX and TMBO? Or will they just move on to another TM as a launch title? Or they might just forget TM games and do the show but with a show if it does get popular they might make a game for the PS5. Then if you play an old disc on PS5 will they offer DLC for games that can handle it like TMX? There are much potential in it if its as powerful as they say.

I highly doubt them reopening servers. A new TM would be iffy at best.

A leaker has apparently confirmed that PS5 will indeed be backwards compatible:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/bgr.com/2020/01/03/ps5-backwards-compatibility-ps4-...

*Fingers crossed*

As far as online is concerned for older games, I think it's unlikely considering that online servers get shut down even on games on current systems after a while. You'd likely need a remake to make that happen like Halo 2 online resurrected in the master chief collection. We'll probably just be lucky to have the backwards compatibility at all and just be grateful for that. No offense, but you may be trying to take a mile for the inch they may be trying to give, lol.

As far as I can tell these rumors all stem from HipHopGamer who hasn't even cited an anonymous source in his original leak video and has an absolutely TERRIBLE track record. His previous leaks include Fight Night 2019 and Getaway PS4, so oof...

Considering the official engineers for the PS4 backwards compatibility have also mentioned the feature on iffy as fuck terms, saying back in October the following - "dev team is putting all power on verifying whether they can secure a complete compatibility. Please wait for more information."

https://www.dualshockers.com/ps5-backward-compatibility-feature/

If they haven't even been able to confirm full backwards compatbility for PS4 games on the PS5, I highly doubt we'll get other systems. Maybe someday, but not anytime soon.
