The list of PS4 games that don’t work on PS5 just got shorter

By iwano@_84

A few days ago, Sony revealed that 99 percent of PS4 games will be compatible with the PS5 and that there are very few titles you can’t play on the upcoming console. Now, the list of 10 just got shorter. NACON and KT Racing told Push Square that they’re developing a patch that would make TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 PS5-compatible. A NACON rep told the publication that the developers are working to make the motorbike racing game 100 percent functional on the new console, though it’s unclear if they’ll be able to roll out the update by the time the PS5 comes out on November 12th.

Can You Preorder the PS5 During Amazon Prime Day? No, But Antoline Has Some

By iwano@_84

The search for PlayStation 5 pre-orders continues as gamers try and get their hands on the next-gen console before its November release, and now they’ll have another chance at it but it’s in an unlikely place.

October 13 marks the start of this year’s Amazon Prime Day and gamers are searching for their own PS5 consoles. However, if you go to the official PS5 page on Amazon there are no consoles to purchase or pre-order as of this writing.

In fact, there are plenty of other games and accessories that PlayStation fans can pick up on the first day of Amazon Prime Day including headsets, storage devices and memberships to the PlayStation Plus online subscription.

They are also selling PS4 games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and much more that will be compatible with the PS5–thanks to backwards compatibility–on the cheap so if you’re starving for some games you can definitely

PS5 Preorder Info: More Console Preorders Available Tomorrow

By iwano@_84

In the wake of the announcement of the PS5 launch date and price points, the long, tense search for a preorder has begun. Launching November 12 at $500 for the standard console and $400 for the digital edition, the PS5 went up for preorder right after the recent PS5 event, and since then, stock has sold out at all major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, and Target.

GameStop had a second wave of PS5 preorders available to preorder on September 25, both online and in stores. Once again, the retailer had a virtual queue. Multiple GameSpot staff members waited in the queue for more than an hour without any success, so online preorders apparently sold out very quickly once again. GameStop issued an update on Twitter confirming that PS5 stock sold out once again. This included a starter bundle that came with Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate

PS5 Game File Sizes Revealed, And You Could Run Out Of Space Quickly

By iwano@_84

Start planning out space for your PS5 games on the system’s SSD now, because they are going to take up a lot of room. In fact, it might not be too long before you have to start deleting games if the file sizes Sony has revealed are anything to go by.

On the PlayStation Direct website, which lets you buy PlayStation games and accessories directly from Sony, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls both have their file sizes estimated. In the case of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the standard version of the game takes up 50GB, while the Ultimate Edition, which packs in a copy of Spider-Man: Remastered, takes up 105GB. Demon’s Souls, meanwhile, is a full remake of the 2009 PS3 game and takes up about 66GB.

For comparison, From Software’s previous game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, takes up less than 13GB on PS4. The PS3 version of Demon’s Souls

PS5 Backwards Compatibility’s Game Boost Improves Certain PS4 Games

By iwano@_84

The PS5 launches around the world next month, and although there are still many lingering questions about how the system works, Sony has now shared more details about PS5’s backwards compatibility. As with Xbox Series X, it appears some previous-gen games will get a performance boost when played on PS5 thanks to the console’s Game Boost feature.

As detailed on the PlayStation support website, Game Boost allows certain PS4 titles to “run with a higher or smoother frame rate” when played on a PS5. However, Sony notes that this will only apply to “select” games; it appears the performance boost won’t be applied across the board, as Xbox Series X does with Xbox One games.

Although Sony did not yet specify what games are able to take advantage of Game Boost, the company shed a bit more light on how it will work in a PlayStation Blog post. “Some titles

PSVR Will Work On PS5, But Not With The New Camera

By iwano@_84

As the launch of the PlayStation 5 approaches, Sony is finally detailing important features of its new console. Along with confirmation of which games will (and won’t) be backwards compatible and what accessories will work without issue, Sony has detailed how PSVR will work on PS5, along with a hint for its future.

If you own a PSVR headset and want to continue using that on PS5, the good news is that you will be able to without much fuss. The PSVR breakout box and headset will work with Sony’s new console, along with accessories such as the PlayStation 4 camera and Move controllers. The camera is an important accessory, too, since Sony has confirmed that the new PS5 camera will not be compatible with PSVR.

Sony states that a PS4 camera adapter will be required for use on the PS5, but the support page isn’t clear on whether this
