Sony will show a presentation dedicated to PS5 games on June 4. However, there are many leaks coming out for the console in recent times. In regards to it, a well-known European store returns to talk about the subject of backward compatibility and ensures that PlayStation 5 would have the ability to run PS4, PS3 and PS2 games.
According to a Turkish retailer, it would have been revealed that PS5 will support backwards compatibility with PS4, PS3, and PS2 games. This speculation was reported by a Reddit user Herdistt, which came from the online store of Hepsiburada. You can check a lot of detailed information on PS5 on the same reseller’s website, which is one of the largest in Turkey.
In any case, initially fans took this news very positively, because it would make many the dreams of people of playing great PS2 classics and PS3 and PS4 titles on the next-gen come true. However, today the news was denied by the well-known journalist Jeff Grubb.

Grubb turns out to be one of the most authoritative journalists in terms of video games and consoles of recent times. Consequently, the fact that he has taken such a clear stand on long-awaited news suggests that he knows the facts better than others.
For the time being, there isn’t any official information from Sony, but they won’t be for a long time. However, the situation should be clear enough: at least initially, PS5 games cannot be played on older Sony consoles, as confirmed by the Sony Boss.
