Aside from the trademark litigation that undoes plans for Sony’s planned Indian launch of the PlayStation 5, the company has released a lot of new information about the console. The company confirmed that the vast majority of PlayStation 4 games will be playable on the new console. Only 10 tracks are listed as unsupported. Some of these older games are also updated when played through backward compatibility with a feature called Game Boost. This should enable faster loading times and better frame rates for certain titles.

The release of the PlayStation 5 in India has been delayed due to a trademark dispute. Sony was unable to brand the console in the country because someone else had already registered it with the relevant authorities. The debacle means Sony will not be able to release the next generation system in the Indian market until the matter is resolved. Reddit user Angrypixel89 also discovered that the person who registered the brand also owns the Kakooze brand, an online store that sells fake PlayStation 4 controllers and accessories. Sony has since removed the listings for Amazon’s fraudulent products, but there appears to be no update in the case of the PlayStation 5 brand.
Sony recently confirmed that users can transfer saved data for backward compatible titles on the PlayStation 5. Progress can be streamed to the new console via Wi-Fi broadcast or cloud storage, so players don’t have to start games over. However, the company announced that with updated versions or remasters, it will be up to each developer to decide whether memory games will work with the new editions.
The strange series of events that prevented Sony from getting the PlayStation 5 out in India as planned is embarrassing for such a large company. While India has traditionally not been a huge factor in the gaming industry, the market is growing and this will undoubtedly be a blow to Sony. It is even more worrying that this person was also able to sell counterfeit PlayStation 4 accessories undetected on Amazon, which apparently was a long time.
