Dust off your PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2, because now you can connect a PS5 controller to them with a new 8BitDo device. This exciting development allows gamers to relive the nostalgia of playing classic PS2 games with the modern comfort and functionality of the PS5 controller.
For gamers who are fans of the PlayStation 2 era, the news of backwards compatibility on the PS5 is a dream come true. The short answer is yes! The PS5 has backwards compatibility with "the vast majority" of PS4 games, but did you know it also extends to PS2 games? This means you can now enjoy your favorite PS2 titles on the latest console.
Although PS Plus Premium does not have the most expansive lineup of PS2 games, Sony's service has some great titles. Through PlayStation Plus, gamers can access a curated selection of PS2 games that can be downloaded and played on the PS5. It's a convenient way to revisit beloved classics or discover hidden gems.
