PS5 backward compatibility with PS4 games, Specifications & price

We were thrilled when Internet detectives revealed that the PS5 was going to be huge – but even their fancy photoshops could not fully comprehend how big the PS5 is.

About half an hour later, Sony revealed the price and release date of the next-generation console ($399 or $4.99 November 12). The company released a complete sample sheet that includes the dimensions of the console. And it’s a monster.

Let me ask you a question. What’s the most prominent and biggest gaming console in modern history? Did you mention the original 2001 Xbox One or the original VCR-sized Xbox One? Maybe 60 GB PS3, dubbed “Phat” with love?

The answer is PS5 is the biggest of them all.

According to Sony, the PS5 is approximately 390 mm (15.4 inches) long, 260 mm (10.24 inches) deep, and 104 mm (4.09 inches) wide, which is why you hear that it Big game console. (I think in terms of PC, it is a matter of 10.5 liters.), the model without a disk drive? The same story, only 12mm thin.

We plugged this number into to see how convincing it is that we have been ridiculed for being absolute.

Barely a comparison. The PS5 is so big; you can’t even say that the 3D view throws away its original size. I’m sure you’ll have to go back to the days of gaming machines with built-in CRT televisions, or computers like the Commodore 64, to be much bigger. This box is bigger than the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

We don’t even need to tell you which console it is. It’s clear. Remember when we were worried about whether the new Xbox would fit in our entertainment centers?

Oh, and I forgot to mention a small turn, which makes it even better: Sony doesn’t include the PS5’s “biggest projection” or optional base, according to its press release.

See those yellow and blue boxes? Now imagine that some of the wings have some of them on top.

If you want to get around them, here’s a 3D look at the seven consoles I’ve plugged in. And if you’re wondering, the PS5 will also weigh 4.5 kilograms or about 10 pounds adding a disk drive brings you to the level of 3.9 kg or 8.6 pounds.

PS5 backward compatible with PS4 games

Sony has publicized the price and release date of the PlayStation 5 ($ 399 for all digital versions, and $ 4.99 for the one with the disk drive, which was released on November 12) and the company’s six launch titles, which will be available at the time of release.

It’s not a massive lineup, and you’re wondering if you can play some PS4 collections on your PS4 on your new PS5 when more games become available – and fortunately, it looks like you have no There will be an opportunity.

The new console is “99%” backward compatible with the PS4 games the company has tested on it so far, Sony PlayStation boss Jim Ryan said in an interview with The Washington Post.

In March, Sony said it believed the “overwhelming majority” of PS4 games would be backward compatible with the PS5, so hearing that “99%” should work on the new console is assuring, if unspecific.

And while Sony hasn’t made a final list of which games will have the backward compatibility. We know that PS5 owners will be able to download and play the classic collection of PS4 games, including God of War, The Last of Us: Performed Again, and Helpless 4: The Elimination of Thieves with only one PlayStation Plus with a subscription.

But even though we don’t know all the details about the PS5’s backward compatibility, the situation is much better than it was before the PS4’s 2013 launch, where you were able to play the PS3 game perfectly.

That hasn’t changed since Sony’s game streaming service, PlayStation Now, launched a year later, but the service only offers a compiled list of PS3 games (and now, PS2 and PS1 games). And PlayStation Now doesn’t allow you to play the PS3, PS2, and PS1 games you already have – you can only qualify for what’s available on the service.

The Xbox One didn’t have any backward compatibility during the 2013 launch. Still, it did add some Xbox game capability in 2015.

It extended it to the original Xbox in 2017 – although in both cases, Microsoft The game had to be played overtime individually on Xbox One. But Microsoft has promised that the upcoming Xbox series X/S will play “thousands” of the original Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Xbox games.

PlayStation 5 release date is confirmed with several upgrades to the new console
