Can you play PS4 games on PS5?
You sure can! The overwhelming majority of the PS4 games you own are playable on the PS5. You’ll be able to download any games you bought through the PlayStation store on your PS4 and play them on the next-gen console.
If you’ve got the disc edition of the PS5, you’ll also be able to insert your PS4 discs into it and play them that way, 也. 明显地, because there’s no physical disc slot on the digital edition of the console, you won’t be able to play any PS4 discs you own. We’ve compiled together a list of our favourite PS4 games, and most of them have dropped in price since the PS5 came out.
From story-led games to online co-op adventures, we’ve found the best PS4 games of 2021 to play now, including ‘God of War’ and Ghost of Tsushima’

PS5 price UK
As we’re sure you are all aware by now, Sony makes two versions of the PlayStation 5. The PS5 digital edition is priced at £349.99, while the regular PS5, which includes a disc drive, costs £449.99. The latter is the same as the Xbox series X, while the less powerful Xbox series S (which also lacks a disc drive) undercuts the digital PS5, at £249.
But many retailers, 包括 游戏, 非常, 阿尔戈斯, 购物到 和 王牌工作室, like to sell their PS5 stock in bundles. This often means spending more but getting extras like a second controller, a selection of games and other accessories. Bundles tend to be easier to get hold of, but you’ll end up spending more money than when buying the console on its own.

‘Ratchet & 铮铮: Rift Apart’ PS5 review
棘轮 & 铮铮: 裂谷公寓 is one of our favourite games of 2021 and won a spot in our round-up of the best PS5 games.
“Rift Apart has charm to burn, in its character design, lively combat mechanics, and explorable levels that feel large without seeming maze-like, busy without being cluttered,” our writer said in their review. “This is one of the best looks yet at what the new console generation has to offer. It’s big, it’s bright, and it’s almost impossible not to love”.
The game is currently on sale at 亚马逊 for £48.99 down from £59.99.

Can PS5 storage be expanded?
After almost a year, Sony is letting gamers expand their PlayStation 5’s internal storage with the installation of an M.2 SSD. If you’re looking to expand your PS5’s storage, then we recommend the Seagate firecuda 530, which comes with a heatsink. It costs £175 (Currys.co.uk).
“A cooling structure, like a heatsink, is something all PS5-compatible SSDs require in order to work correctly, and it’s nice that you don’t have to do a hatchet jot of installing your own with this Seagate model,” our writer said in their review. “The firecuda 530 lets you conveniently download, copy and launch PS5 and PS4 games straight from the internal storage, as well as media apps like Plex. Transfer speeds are blazing fast as well, with Seagate saying that it delivers speeds of up to 7,000MB/s.”

Can you order a PS5 from Playstation Direct?
Customers can order a PS5 directly from Sony through the PS Direct site. We saw plenty of stock drops in December to make up for the Christmas demand but nothing yet in January.
When Playstation Direct does have stock available, customers will receive a unique ID in the waiting room to help deter scalpers, so it’s a good one to keep an eye on.
