Sony Reveals 10 PS4 Games That Won’t Work on PS5 | Game Rant – GameRant

With the PS5 set to play nearly every PS4 game through backwards compatibility, Sony details the 10 games that will not work on PS5.

With the PlayStation 5 releasing worldwide next month, Sony has gone into full swing on the next-gen consoles marketing. One of the systems main selling points is backwards compatibility, with all but 10 obscure PlayStation 4 games moving over to next-gen.

Many of the 4000+ PS4 games playable on PS5 will have higher frame rates or, like Final Fantasy 14s PS5 version, faster load times. Some obscure games did not make the cut, however, with 10 titles being listed in a PS Blog post as exclusive to the PS4 platform. The reasoning behind their exclusivity is unclear, though most if not all the games in question are unknown or unpopular.

Kicking off the list is arguably the best-known game on the list, Hitman: Go. A turn-based puzzle game released back around the PlayStation 4s launch, the game spawned a Tomb Raider spinoff that shared similar mechanics. The indie titles were far from reaching the popularity of the main series, however, originally releasing on mobile devices and coming to PlayStation with some easy trophy lists.

Cryteks VR game Robinson: The Journey, which was considered by some to be one of the worst games of 2016, also makes the list of PS4 only titles. It is joined by an obscure but decently reviewed racing game in TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 2 and stealth game Shadwen, as well as the indie horror game Joes Diner. Party games We Sing! and Just Deal With It will both not make the cut, with VR title DWVR and the poorly received Afro Samurai 2 also being locked onto the PS4 platform.

The final game being kept exclusively on PlayStation 4 may be the most disappointing for its few loyal fans, as the cult classic Shadow Complex: Remastered will not be playable on PS5. Ironically, Shadow Complex first came to the current consoles through Xbox One backward compatibility, but it will not be doing the same for the next-gen PlayStation platform. With most gamers not knowing about Shadow Complex or any of the other games on this list, however, it is unlikely that these games not being backwards compatible has any effect on the sales of the PlayStation 5.

Considering Sony has high expectations for PS5 console salesdue to player interest in features like backward compatibility, PlayStation players should be more than happy with the huge library of backward compatible games Sony is providing. For hardcore Shadow Complex fans, however, hanging onto that PS4 may be a good idea.

The PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, and will launch everywhere else on November 19.
