Demon's Souls Remake A PlayStation 5 Launch Title, launching November 12th

PlayStation 5 to Ship in November, Priced Starting at $400

But everyone can stop dreaming of dusting off those classic titles from their back-catalogues.

In a recent interview with Famitsu which was translated by Siliconera, Ryan explained that PS5 will not be compatible with PS3, PS2, and PS1 titles. We've updated the title of this article to better reflect the information.

However, in the fine print, we learn that the exclusivity on consoles is only for a limited time - and it's also coming to PC.

"So, unfortunately, we could not achieve compatibility with those formats", Ryan added.

"We're now evaluating games on a title-by-title basis to spot any issues that need adjustment from the original software developers".


"We have already tested hundreds of titles and are preparing to test thousands more as we move toward launch".

The PS5 Digital Edition will be available for a recommended retail price of $399.99, while the PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive will be available for $499.99.

The PS5 console is due to first hit just two days after Microsoft's own next-generation Xbox consoles are set to ship (Nov. 10): The entry-level Xbox Series S is priced at $299 and the Xbox Series X will cost $499.

However, the PS5 release date is a little unusual - 12 November in the USA and selected other countries (Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea) before a 19 November "rest of the world" rollout.
