PS5 VRR does not work with PS4 games, just so you know

Tech Highlights:

  • In its blog post on the matter, the platform holder stressed that VRR “enhances visual performance for PS5 games” and that “gameplay in many PS5 titles feels smoother”; the language in the console’s system settings also makes clear that it will only work with new-gen content. As a point of comparison, Xbox Series X|S offers FreeSync in addition to VRR for those older titles.

  • Put down your pitchforks, because Sony has been very explicit that the PlayStation 5’s new VRR function will only work with next-gen games, and now we have real-world evidence to back it up. People have been putting the functionality through its paces since it was released this week, and just to be clear, it does not work with PS4 games.

So that’s the state of play with VRR on PS5 for the moment; we figured it was worth posting a clarification for those unclear. Remember that the feature will work with all PS5 titles if you enable the Apply to Unsupported Games option in the system settings. However, a selection of releases have been specifically optimised for the feature, and you can find All VRR Optimised Games for PS5 through the link.
