Sony has announced today that we will be able to see some of the games that will debut with the PS5 on June 4.
If you were hoping that some of the Sony exclusive PS5 games revealed that day will also hit the PS4, we are disappointed.
In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan have ruled out the possibility of PS5 games coming to PS4 in the future.
We have always said that we believe in generations. We believe that when one goes to the trouble of creating a new generation console, it should include features and benefits that the previous generation does not.
In our opinion, people should make games that can take full advantage of those features.
We believe in generations, and whether it’s the DualSense controller, 3D audio, the multiple ways to use the SSD … we think it’s time to give the PlayStation community something new, something different, that can only be enjoyed on PS5.
According to Ryan’s words, it seems that you will have to switch to the new console to enjoy the titles that we will see at the launch of the PS5, or any other game that will come out for PS5 in the future.
In any case, distributors other than Sony Interactive Entertainment will be able to launch their games for both platforms (as is the case with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla), so PS4 players will not be completely marginalized when the PS5 arrives.
This is a completely different approach than the one Microsoft is taking with the Xbox Series X, which will allow gamers to enjoy Xbox Series X games on both the next-gen console and Xbox One, at least at launch. of the first years
In addition, Microsoft has promised that you will be able to buy a title only once and play on the Xbox Series X and Xbox One, in case you are thinking of changing your console at any time.
