Sony has named the main drawback of the PlayStation 5

As you know, on November 12, 2020, the PlayStation 5 game console will go on sale in the United States, Europe, Japan and some other countries around the world, which can be bought by the widest possible range of people. The novelty will reach the people of Ukraine on November 19, when everyone will be able to buy it for themselves without any complications and difficulties. The official recommended price of the novelty is UAH 17,999, ie those wishing to purchase it will have to pay a large sum for it. However, you can save a few thousand hryvnia, buy a simplified model called PS5 Digital Edition, which does not have a disk drive, so it is cheaper – only 14999 UAH. Meanwhile, the Sony PlayStation 5 has one major drawback, which for many can be the main and decisive when choosing a console. PlayStation head Jim Ryan has officially announced that the PS5 will not be able to run any video games currently available for PS1, PS2 and PS3 in compatibility mode. In practice, this means that owners of the new game console will only be able to launch games for the PS4 released in the last more than six years since its launch. Playing older video games will not work in any way. According to the management of this brand, when creating the PS5, the developers sought to ensure compatibility only with games for PlayStation 4. Due to the features of the game controller DualSense and SSD flash memory, support for games from older generations of game consoles failed. However, according to fans of the Japanese corporation, this is nothing more than an excuse, because video games for PS1, PS2 and PS3 can now be easily run on computers via an emulator.

Given that Sony has the full source code for these set-top boxes, it could well support full backward compatibility, but it saved money and didn’t. In addition, it is possible that in the near future the brand will release a reissued PS3, which will receive support for games from PS1 and PS2, including, which will allow the company to earn large sums of money on already released games. We also found that about 99% of PS4 games tested on the PlayStation 5 work perfectly without any problems or errors. Due to this, the owners of the new game console will be able to play thousands of different video games now available for the old console, which is sold around the globe on store shelves since 2013, ie very, very little. Obviously, many people are guaranteed to recognize the lack of support for older games for previous generations of consoles as the main disadvantage of the PS5, because the Xbox Series X from Microsoft can run not only games for Xbox One, but also video games from Xbox 360 and just the original Xbox. released many years ago.
