Hopefully Sony releases a BC patch at some point to increase stability across all games.

Out of all the game titles, I am not surprised it's Assasins Creed 💁‍♂️

I've noticed a lighting glitch (flashy sun light on buildings) while playing the Ezio Collection on PS4, so I'm not surprised Syndicate is even worse on PS5.

Bare in mind the PS5 isn't even properly released yet so I'm sure a lot of stuff will be addressed in future patches.

Graphical glitches like this can happen when not using native hardware. Many games with minor glitches will still be playable. Only 380 out of 15402 entries are on the list of games with that might exhibit errors or unexpected behavior. While it's possible that Sony can address some issues post launch it's more likely that most remaining problems would require a game patch to fix.

Yeah it's definitely more on the devs than Sony. Just like the 10 that weren't. Some devs said they'll update the games

I hope they fix Assassin's Creed Syndicate. It's probably the only game I would maybe play via backwards compatibility, that doesn't seem to work correctly. All the other games Sony listed that won't work, I don't own, or never even heard of.

So if I plug my external hdd full of PS4 games into my ps5 does it play those games directly off of the hdd or do I need to transfer them to the ps5 system before I can play them?

You can play them directly off the HDD
