Video games nowaday support both Play Station 4 and Play Station 5. However, many do not have dedicated versions for PS5. But, that doesn’t mean you cannot play those games on PS5. Next gen consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X|S support forward compatibility. So, even if the game doesn’t have a dedicated version for PS5, you will still be able to play the game on PS5. Lucky for us, NBA 2K22 has a dedicated version for PS5. The video game is also available for PS4 as a separate version. You might be wondering whether there’s a way to play both the versions. Well, yes. There’s a way. But, you will have to keep a few things in mind.
First, you must have a PS5 to toggle between versions. You cannot play the PS5 version on PS4 due to the obvious hardware superiority of PS5. The version of NBA 2K22 for PS5 is called the next gen. And, the version of NBA 2K22 for PS4 is called the current gen. There are a few differences among them but the most prominent of them is the map. Next gen players have the opportunity to explore the hi-fi City map that is graphically much more advanced. Current gen players have to make do with the Neighborhood map. As expected, many players on current gen are upset about this. But, we cannot do much when it comes to hardware limitations.
If you are on PS5 and curious about what the Neighborhood has to offer in the current gen version of NBA 2K22, read this article to know how to switch between versions.
