Backwards compatibility is always a big talking point when new generation consoles arrive, and there has been some more information regarding the PlayStation 5.
One of the biggest gripes from many Sony PlayStation fans in the last generation was the fact that their PS3 games would not work on their new console.
However, it seems that this has been a big lesson for Sony, with president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, saying that "99 percent" of PS4 games will run on the PS5.
In his interview with the Washington Post, he also addressed the discussion around the fact that some PS5 launch games will also be releasing on the PS4, with fans claiming that it could impact the quality of the next-gen version.
"No one should be disappointed. The PS5 versions of those games are built from the ground up to take advantage of the PS5 feature set, and we have an upgrade path for PS4 users to get the PS5 versions for free. It’s about people having choice. I’m really quite pleased about the situation."
The release date and price for the PlayStation 5 has officially been revealed. In South Africa, the digital version will cost R9 999, with the disc version retailing at R11 999. The console lands in South Africa on 19 November.
