After last week’s announcement that the PS5 had only been tested with “about” 100 PS4 games, Sony came out this week and announced that they had actually tested it with far more games than that and that it would be compatible with at least some of them. How many? Who knows to be honest.

  • HP, Valve and Microsoft Are Building the VR Headset of the Future 
  • Playstation Is Slowing Game Downloads in Europe, Could the US Be Next (and Would We Notice)
  • Minecraft is Helping Kids Stuck at Home
