Backwards compatibility with older PS games is a huge selling point for the PS5. Gamers are eager to know if they can play their favorite PS3 games on the new console.
The only PS1, PS2, and PS3 games you can play on PS5 are those available on PS Plus. These games are emulated and must be downloaded from the PlayStation Network (PSN).
PlayStation Plus offers different tiers like Essential, Extra, and Premium, each containing lists of PS5, PS4, PS3, PS2, PSP, and PS1 games. The availability of these games varies depending on the subscription tier.
