PS5 Backwards Compatibility PS4 PS3 PS2 PS1 Poll

Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 games, but that's all we know right now. Rumours have been swirling for months that the next-gen console -- set to launch later this year -- will also be able to play old PS3, PS2, and PSone titles as well, but there's very little evidence to solidify these whispers.

And so, we're here to ask you: how much does backwards compatibility really matter? If the PS5 can't run older PlayStation games, would you still buy the system? Vote in our polls, and then feed us an honest opinion in the comments section below.
