  • mikewhy posted a message in the forum topic PS5 - And Backwards Compatability to Play Old Games. on the General Discussion board

    If you can prove you own the game, by inserting the disc or by accessing it from PSN, you should be able to play it. I wouldn't expect them putting old games up for sale and navigating that mess.
