Sony’s not telling us a huge amount about the PlayStation 5 at the present, so leave it to intrepid code junkies to extract the information out of the platform holder. New code uncovered on the web-based version of the PlayStation Store teases some of the tantalising new features we can expect to find on the next-gen console come launch.
First and foremost, it looks like wishlists will finally be integrated into the console, as there’s a line of code that states: “Your wishlist isn't available on this website. You can find it on a PS5.” In addition, it looks like you’ll be able to create Parties with up to 100 people, and share music playlists with pals. There’s also reference to something called a ‘Takedown’, but we’re not sure what this entails yet.
Elsewhere, it looks like backwards compatible titles that support PS5’s boost mode feature will be marked as such, while there’ll be a warning for the one per cent of PS4 games that aren’t playable on the next-gen console. Interestingly, there’s also reference to a page on the official PlayStation website fully detailing backwards compatibility, but it’s currently offline.
