You’ll be able to stream games from your PlayStation 5 and play them on your PS4 in another room
Well, maybe don’t trade in your PS4 just yet.
People are extremely excited for the next generation of consoles to release, but those going with the PlayStation 5 have a new thing to look forward to.
As part of the PlayStation 5 Ultimate FAQ, Sony gave users a reason to keep their PlayStation 4 consoles around.
Basically, the company is updating its Remote Play feature that allows users to play their PS4 on other devices to include the new PlayStation 5.
According to the FAQ,
Players will be able to access their PS5 from a PC or mobile device via Remote Play in the same way as PS4. With PS5, you’ll also be able to access your PS5 from a PS4 console or another PS5 via Remote Play.
In addition to this new update that will let you play your PlayStation 5 games on your PS4, Sony is also upping the number of users that can participate as well, meaning you’ll be able to play with up to three other people for multiplayer gaming.
If you were planning on trading in your PS4, make sure to check out our guides to make sure you are doing everything you need to do (and getting the most money possible), but if you’ve been on the fence about it, this might be a big enough reason to hold onto the console.
