Highlighting its “generations” of suitable titles and Good Supply setup that may obtain the precise model in your hardware compared to Sony’s still-murky plans for compatibility is very well timed. Eurogamer experiences Sony has instructed PS4 builders that each one video games submitted after July 13th should be PS5 suitable, with all the identical options accessible that gamers expertise on PS4.
