Sony rummages in the moth box so you have something to play with

Old PS4 games will be patched and updated to give you more choices on the PS5. There are real classics.

PlayStation 5

Getting more and more PS4 games Updates and Patches. This also includes older games where such late corrections seem kind of weird … wouldn't be there a new generation of consoles with the PS5 in front of the door.

Updates likely for the PS5

The PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible. Allegedly on the release day of the PS5 99 percent of all PS4 games can be played on the new console be. Now Sony is starting to polish up these same games again, even though they have been on the market for years. A good example of this is the God of War 3 Remastered which five years under my belt Has. It got a patch that was supposed to iron out the last blemishes. Kratos also gets a little cure in God of War (2018). Why? Most likely so that you can enjoy the games in the best possible quality on the PS5.

Dozens of PS4 games affected

Along with the Playstation 4 update 8.00, Sony started making dozens of games to be improved with small updates. Since some of these productions have been on the market for a few years, it seems Time of repair actually related to the release of the PS5. However, some updates cause confusion. The exclusive game Spider-Man from 2018, for example, got an update, although a remaster has already been announced on the new generation of consoles. Still, that's not bad. Even if you don't want to buy a PlayStation 5 for the time being, you can be happy that annoying bugs and other errors should now (finally) be a thing of the past. An exact list which games Sony will now provide with updates, unfortunately does not exist yet.
