There are many new features available—including several for accessibility. This also covers the players being able to create custom presets so that all games start similarly when they boot them—for example, subtitles can become the default for every game on the PS5 if that is the player’s preference. Not just subtitles, other options for customizing presets are setting the difficulty levels, choosing between prioritizing FPS or resolution, and camera controls (where one can choose between normal or inverted). Players can do this by going to Settings, then Saved Data and Game/App Settings, then finally to Game Presets.
The trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is launching on November 12 on the PS4 and PS5:
Another exciting news is that, after a future software update, the PS5 will be able to output 8K resolution if the content and supported software is available. Of course—8K TVs are not the most accessible financially right now, but it does provide hope for the future of the console. On launch, though, the PS5 will only be able to support 4K displays; with supported resolutions being 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 2160p. 4K/120Hz can be enabled with an HDMI 2.1 cord—so PS5 and PS4 games with compatibility will look amazing on-screen.
All top 100 played games on the PS4 will be compatible with the PS5 (and players can take advantage of the latter’s ‘Boost Mode’); and games from PS3, PS2, or PS1 will not have backward compatibility. The PlayStation VR headset and its games are also playable on the new console.
Here a list of PS4 games that do not have backward compatibility with the PS5:
- Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
- TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2
- Just Deal With It!
- Shadow Complex Remastered
- Robinson: The Journey
- We Sing
- Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
- Joe’s Diner
- T. (reportedly)
