The all new PS5 might struggle with over 100 PS4 games.

With the PS5 now in some lucky homes, it’s pretty clear that Sony’s promise was correct: the “overwhelming majority of the 4,000+ PS4 titles” do indeed play brilliantly on PS5. Some, such as The Last Guardian, run far better than they ever did on last-generation hardware.

But it’s also clear that Sony’s official unsupported list of ten so-so titles doesn’t tell the full story. A mysterious webpage pulled by Ubisoft had suggested as much, and now it’s confirmed.

The other games Kotaku tested were Everybody’s Golf (flickering scenery, but there’s a PS5 patch coming), Flinthook (which suffered from some slowdown) and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (some blurry areas in the opening scenes). 

It’s not clear what sets the games in the list apart from anything else, but if you want to do some detective work on your own PS4 games collection, you can filter the titles with the backwards compatibility warning via this Github tool. Just change the “PS5 BC” dropdown to “bootable” and you’ll see every title that comes with a warning.

Ultimately, the PS5 has a pretty strong lineup of launch titles to keep you busy. All the same, it’s definitely worth asking around online before you purchase any additional PS4 games to play on the new hardware, Just to make sure things work as expected.
