The PS5 won’t be running PS1, PS2, or PS3 games through backward compatibility, but as Sony have promised a number of times now, the vast majority (99%, as per PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan) of PS4 games will be playable on the upcoming next-gen console. And some of them will even run better on the PS5 than they natively did on the PS4.

Sony has mentioned a few times that the PS5’s backward compatibility will allow some games to run at boosted frame rates thanks to system-level enhancements, and they’re now touting that on the console’s official web page as well. The page in question mentions that “select” PS4 and PlayStation VR titles will feature “faster and smoother frame rates” on the PS5. Take a look at the screencap below.

What “select games” entails in terms of quantity or which games will make the cut for this curated lineup remains to be seen, but it is a nice bonus to have for prospective owners of the PS5.

The PS5 will launch in some regions of the world on November 12, and everywhere else on November 19. Pre-orders are live now, but the situation has been a bit of a mess. Sony recently issued an apology for the same, while promising greater available through the end of the year- read more on that through here.
