So, for game lovers it will have over 100 most played games at the time of launch of the PlayStation 5.
The system architect Mark Cerny confirmed the support for 100 most played games at the time of release of PayStation 5. During the ‘Road to PS5’ streamed talk which was hosted by system architect Mark Cerny details on this release was revealed. It is good news for the PlayStation lovers that the new PlayStation 5 is coming with the full support for 100 most played games at the time of launch.
During the ‘Road to PS5’ talk, he talked about how backward compatibility is achieved in case of PS3s. He further said that a PS2 chipset was used inside PS3s to achieve the compatibility. Later on this way of compatibility was scrapped due to cost and other reasons. According to him, in PayStation 5 this trick is not used and it is based on the logic of the PayStation 4’s system. The new system is designed to run the game natively and more efficiently. The PlayStation 5 will come with the better hardware for compatibility and performance.
All the games are not compatible for PlayStation 5 because they are not built to handle the boosts and that may not work with the new system. There is manual work of checking all the games one-by-one which takes a lot of time. So, in the future the company might release more games for the PlayStation 5.
All the 100 most popular games that will come with PlayStation 5 are fully tested and work well with the new system. During the talk he also talked about the 3D sound and audio devices.
