June 11, 2020, was a big day for Sony as well as for many gamers as the PlayStation 5 was announced to be released somewhere between October to December this year. Many players are very excited about the release of PS5. This would be the next generation of gaming as it will not only boast of several graphic updates but also a few console updates, as the previous PlayStation console lacked in backward concord.
Moreover, Sony has been in the news as it’s reported that the new PS5 will also allow some old PS4 games to work on it – but with some significant upgrades for a good gaming experience.
However, this will only happen when the company behind these games wants to update it by putting their time and effort into it. No matter how excellent or substantial the PS4 library of games is, it all depends on the publisher. Whereas, on the other hand, Sony is yet to provide a complete catalog of games that might have an advantage due to this offer.
