We now know that the PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible with PS4 games, thanks to this exclusive report from Wired, but what about physical copies specifically? Will PS5 be able to read discs? Good news: it'll support physical media as well as digital.

"For example, the next-gen console will still accept physical media; it won’t be a download-only machine," reads the report. This means the PS5 will offer both boxed games and digital games, just like PS4. Again, because PS5 is going to be backwards compatible, it needed to be able to read PS4 discs at least, but it's nice to have confirmation.

Are you pleased that physical media is here to stay? Pop a disc into the comments below.
