Pretty neat if you like Fifa. Don't have to buy 2 copies if you're getting next gen consoles.

IMO every game should have free upgrades to next gen. No deal here just EA sounding like they're giving you a deal when all the other game companies are already getting on board with this.

This is just marketing bs. I doubt they will have a completely new version built from scratch for next gen. They just guarantee your copy will work.

I agree with you 100%. I'm a die hard fan of football and was thinking of waiting for the PS5 version, but with this "deal" I can play on PS4 and my progress will carry out to PS5. But I see your point.

No, this is not just going to be FIFA2021 in compatibility mode. EA is making a version of FIFA 2021 that will be for PS5 and XBSX. They will likely have 4K resolution at 60fps, enhanced lighting effects, reduced load times, etc. Completely new game from the ground up? Probably not, but definitely not the same as the PS4/XB1 game in compatibility mode.

Mostly. There can be some incompatibility, so some games might require patches from the game devs or adjustments by Sony. But hundreds of games should be compatible and all of the most popular games will be compatible on launch.

However, this isn't just running the old gen game in compatibility mode. They are going to give you the actual copy of FIFA2021 designed to be on PS5/XBSX and taking advantage of the new hardware.
