PushSquare: Jim Ryan has been appointed the new President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, and PlayStation fans are worried.
Of course, some feel that Ryans promotion means that backwards compatibility will now be impossible for the PlayStation 5, but we reckon thats an overreaction of the highest magnitude. In fact, weve noticed for a few months that theres scepticism surrounding the oft-requested feature, and weve found it bemusing. Now obviously it hasnt gone to the same lengths that Microsoft has in terms of bringing legacy software to the PS4, but we think its idiotic to assume itll have the same priorities next-gen. In fact, theres more reason to believe the PS5 will be backwards compatible than wont, so lets look at the facts.
