Playing PS4 Disc Games on Digital Only PS5


Since it is possible to play PS4 games on the PS5, how are you supposed to play the disc version of PS4 games on the PS5. Is there a download code or something we will be able to use to play the game if you need to play the game on a PS5 console that does not have a disc drive?

It is not possible, just like it is not possible to play disc versions of PS5 games on the digital only PS5. If you have purchased this console, you will not be able to play any type of games that are on discs, It will be digital-only. If you purchased a digital version of a PS4 game, you will be able to play it without any problems.

If you have purchased the digital only version of the PS5, then you are stuck with the disc versions of a PS4 and will not be able to use them unless you kept your PS4.
