The highly anticipated release of the PlayStation 5 has brought with it a wave of excitement and confusion. With the ability to play both PS4 and PS5 games, it can be difficult to tell which version of a game you are playing on your new console. This is especially important for those who have purchased the PS5 Spiderman 2 bundle or are considering upgrading to the rumored PS5 Pro. In this article, we will discuss how to tell if your PS5 is playing the PS4 version of a game.
Check the Game Title
The simplest way to determine which version of a game you are playing is to check the game title. If the game title includes “PS5” or “PS5 Upgrade Available,” then you are playing the PS5 version. If the title only includes “PS4,” then you are playing the PS4 version. This is the most foolproof method, but it may not always be accurate as some games may not have updated their titles yet.
Look for the PS5 Icon
Another way to determine which version of a game you are playing is to look for the PS5 icon on the game’s cover art. This icon is a small white circle with the letters “PS5” in black. If the game has this icon, then you are playing the PS5 version. If the game does not have this icon, then you are playing the PS4 version.
Check the Game Settings
Some games may have the option to switch between the PS4 and PS5 versions within the game’s settings. This is usually found in the “Options” or “Settings” menu. If you are unsure which version you are playing, check the game’s settings to see if there is an option to switch between versions. If there is, then you can easily switch to the PS5 version.
Look for Enhanced Features
One of the main differences between the PS4 and PS5 versions of a game is the enhanced features on the PS5. These may include improved graphics, faster loading times, and new gameplay features. If you notice any of these enhancements while playing a game, then you are most likely playing the PS5 version.
Check the Game’s Information
If all else fails, you can check the game’s information on the PlayStation Store. This will tell you which version of the game you have purchased and downloaded. If you have purchased the PS5 version, it will also list any enhancements or features that are exclusive to the PS5 version.
By following these tips, you can easily determine which version of a game you are playing on your PS5. This is especially important for those who have purchased the PS5 Spiderman 2 bundle or are considering upgrading to the rumored PS5 Pro. Make sure you are getting the most out of your console by playing the correct version of your favorite games.
