As more and more information leaks online about the upcoming consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, a major console war is looming. It’s impossible to tell at this point which one of the two gaming gears is better, but we are free to make assumptions. Both PS5 and Xbox Series X will get rid of the annoying in-game loading times once and for all, and they’ll also be capable of other gaming magic.
While a lot of fans were curious about PlayStation 5’s backward compatibility, Sony stated that it “believes” that the vast majority of the over 4,000 titles for PS4 will also be playable on PS5. But things could become even more delightful.
Will PS5 be able to run all PS4 games?
The popular streamer Lance McDonald brought great news to the public, and let’s hope he’s right. The guy wrote the following within a deleted tweet captured by ResetEra:
There’s been some confusion about this in the past and I can clear it up now. The PlayStation 5 can run all PlayStation 4 games without per-game whitelisting. Sony continue [sic.] to test titles but the system will not prevent you from launching untested games.
PlayStation 5 will surpass PlayStation 4 in specs tremendously, as the next-gen console will be featuring the following configuration:
- CPU: AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
- GPU architecture: Custom RDNA 2.
- Memory interface: 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit.
- Memory bandwidth: 448GB/s.
- Internal storage: Custom 825GB SSD.
There are numerous games already confirmed for PS5, and we can mention the following: FIFA 21, Cyberpunk 2077, Gran Turismo 7, Hitman 3, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Little Devil Inside, Marvel’s Avenger’s, NBA 2K21, Dirt 5, Far Cry 6, and much more. GTA V, one of the best selling games of all time, will arrive for PlayStation 5 as an enhanced version so that it will match the advanced hardware of the next-generation console better.
