The PS5 launched a month ago and some players have been playing the PS4 version of a cross-gen game on their PS5, most notably Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Unlike Smart Delivery on the Xbox Series X and Series S which automatically installs and loads up the latest version of a game on the next-gen console, the PS5 will let you download the PS4 version of a cross-gen game without you knowing Spotted by Twitter user @Tidux, the PS5 will now warn you to switch to the right version.
“You’re about to play the PS4 version of this game,” reads the warning. “Do you want to switch to the PS5 version?” Players can decide to “Play PS4 Version” or “Switch to PS5 Version.”
This is a welcome addition to the PS5 UI and a useful feature. To be honest, no one wants to play the last-gen version of a game on a powerful PS5 console.
