1 PlayStation 5 Trick You Must Know to Play PlayStation 4 Games at 120fps

PlayStation players are not able to play PS4 games at 120fps on PlayStation 5 as Sony currently only allows specifically designed PS5 games to be playable at 120fps and due to this even enhanced games like Warzone and Rocket League are not available at the frame rate. But it looks like there is a way around it and a professional game modder has found it.

One Neat Trick Lets Players Enjoy PS4 Games at 120fps on PlayStation 5

Note that this trick requires plenty of technical knowledge and not all gamers would be able to do so. According to a report by PSU, a console modder going by the name Illusion on X somehow successfully ran their PS4 games at 120fps on PlayStation 5.

Although they did not reveal all the details on how they managed to do it, they just said that is now possible to play at 120fps on the ‘hacked’ PS5 console. Illusion shared a post on X playing what looks like Bloodborne and Gravity Rush 2 and both the games looked brilliant at 120fps.


Bloodborne fans have been waiting for a remastered version of the game for modern-generation consoles and while it is uncertain if it will ever happen or not, players could get the closest with this trick.

The fans were impressed on seeing their favorite games with amazing graphics and desired a jailbroken PlayStation 5. However, they did not pull the curtain on how they managed to do this, it could be attributed to jailbreaking PlayStation 5.
