PSU Writes: "We have found out that your probably shouldn't put PS5 discs into your PS4 console, because the system won't read them and the disc can get stuck."
I wasn’t planning on doing this with my PS5 games, thanks tho, I guess haha.
Yeah I worry about articles like this and the stupidity of some people....
I don't worry about the stupidity of some people. people are inherently stupid & there are far to many morons out there. it is however sad that people actually write and post this kind of article. I mean it really goes w/o saying. and for those who are that stupid or curious. it's your dam fault for being so daft.
Why is it stupid when they stated it works the other way around with miles Morales.
Why is this stupid and why does this go without saying? Valhalla is one disc for both Xbox platforms. PS4 Spider-Man and PS4 Sackboy work on PS5 And the PS4 Valhalla. What's stupid is designing a hardware system where a disc gets stuck in a disc slot without manual intervention. What's truly idiotic though, are these comments above. So vitriolic over a disc slot not accepting discs and you all are like "No shit a disc slot doesn't accept a disc, stupid!"
This is an easy mistake to make if you have both machines sitting next to each other, eventually someone will put the wrong the disk in one of the machines. @Tacoboto The article didn't mention how long they waited, they may have panicked too soon. I've had similar issues on Windows with bad disks, but eventually it gives up and ejects it on it's own. I suspect the same may be true here, they just didn't wait long enough
Can imagine quite a few people doing this to get two versions of miles Morales, it works the other way around with the PS4 version granting access to the ps5 version. Don't see why it's so daft of people to try after all most people going to ps5 have a PS4 too.
Sadly, I know people who put PC discs is consoles...
I wondered about this. I wasn't sure it would work going back so I opted to get the PS4 version of SM:MM so at least my son could play it on his 4 and then I could use the same disc to upgrade to the 5.
I'm finding most PlayStation games go both ways. Hehe. At least digitally.
The PS5 and Series X use UHD Blu Rays, so the PS4 and PS4 Pro wouldn't be able to read them.
The discs for the games arent UHD capacity though. PS5 discs and series X discs are the same bluray as ps4 and xbo. If you had said the file structure was not compatible then sure. Like putting a ps2 cd (purple disc) into a ps1 since both are the same disc format.
@LastRun I didn't say they didn't. @darth I could swear I read last year that both consoles were going to be using UHD Blu Ray discs for games. If that's wrong, my bad.
Moot - AskPlayStation on twitter has posted many times on how to eject discs that get stuck in the PS4.
Well duh. Its like people putting stickers on deodorant cans telling people not to spray into your eyes...
Putting a disc into a disc slot is equal to spraying chemicals in your eye?
Not quite but the principle is the same. Why would you put a ps5 disc into a ps4... why would people spray themselves in the eye... you actually have people doing it.
Here's a not-so-stupid comparison: Putting a house key into the wrong door.
Duuuh who would have tought that?? Every one with a brain could come to this conclusion🙄
No shit, also please don't put your D in the ps4 disc drive...
I tried a PS1 disc when I first bought my PS4 thinking the PS1 feature would work. The package clearly says PS5 right on the cover only time I put an old gen disc into a machine is 360 games into my XB1 if it's on the backwards compatible list.
I don't get why anyone would want to even try. It's not like PS4 will magically turn into a PS5 is it?
Ah yes, for science. Sounds like the PS4 went Rain Man on that disc: "I'm an excellent reader. Cerny said I could read what had 4, but not a 5. Definitely not a 5."
I actually did this with my PS5 copy of Demon's Souls just for the lols It couldn't read it and I was able to eject with no issues so I guess it depends on the game?
Why are people doing this smh
How dumb are some people? Oh wait..
