Obviously everyone’s excited over the newly revealed Playstation 5 (PS5) Right? But amidst the buzz of a shiny new toy with an imminent launch date, a lot of us are looking past something really important here. What’s a new console without some new games right? Here, we talk about ALL the PlayStation 5 (PS5) games that have been announced so far!
There are actually (surprisingly) about 67 titles announced for the PlayStation 5 (PS5) already. This however, does not include the library of games which are already available for the PlayStation 4. Let’s dive into this a little bit before we head off to the next part.
The PlayStation 5 (PS5) will be backwards compatible. What this means is that gamers will be able to play PlayStation 4 (PS4) titles on the newer console. Do take note however, that only the Top 100 games played by PlayStation 4 (PS4) users will be backwards compatible by the PlayStation 5 (PS5) launch date, although the whole list might not be available.
