Update: Ubisoft has now removed the below message from its website. Make of that what you will!
Original story: We all know how hard Microsoft has pushed backwards compatibility in recent years, adding over 600 original Xbox and Xbox 360 titles to the program, as well as confirming that all non-Kinect Xbox One games will work on the Xbox Series X (that's over 2000 titles) when it launches this November.
In response, Sony has also developed its own backwards compatible system that will allow PS4 games to work on PS5, but according to a Ubisoft support site, it looks like PS1, PS2 and PS3 games won't be compatible.
Here's what the official website has to say about it:
Backwards compatibility will be available for supported PlayStation 4 titles, but will not be possible for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, or PlayStation games.
In comparison, the Xbox Series X page on the site confirms that backwards compatibility "will be available for supported Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Xbox titles," all of which are of course already playable on Xbox One.
Ultimately, it remains to be seen whether Sony will find a way to support older titles in some fashion on the PS5, but for fans of backwards compatibility, it certainly sounds as though Xbox will have the advantage this Holiday.
