An analysis of the source code of the PlayStation Store website has shed light on a number of aspects of the new PlayStation 5 game console. We are talking about backward compatibility, account management, and more.
When it comes to backward compatibility, some disappointment can be expected. It is noted that when running PS4 games on the PS5 console, some features available on the PS4 may not work. More detailed information is proposed to study on a special page www.playstation.com/ps5-backwards-compatibility, but at the moment this address receives a 404 “Page not available” error message. You may also see a message in the code stating that “This PS4 game is not supported by your current PS5 system software.” At the same time, it is said that work continues to ensure that more PS4 games can be run on PS5. Therefore, it is recommended that you update your console software.
Additionally, the PS5 boost mode is reported. In addition, the lines of code “” msgid_ps5_controller_trigger_effect “:” Trigger effect required “and” “msgid_ps5_controller_vibration:” Vibration function required “” hint at the mandatory presence of tactile feedback functions and adaptive triggers in controllers. In theory, this could lead to compatibility issues.
At the same time, the Sony Playstation 5 console will be able to share the device. This is hinted at by the account management features that won’t be too different from those found on the PS4.
Finally, it mentions wishlist support, the ability to participate in groups of up to 100 people, the ability to share videos, albums, playlists, artists and songs.
