PlayStation's Jim Ryan wants people to know he doesn't hate old games | VGC
"The point I was trying to make -- obviously not very well -- was just how great the PS4 version looked and how far the series had evolved. I certainly wasn't trying to be disrespectful to our heritage," he told journalist Stephen Totilo.
"I guess my big learning from all of this is that when Kazunori Yamauchi unveils the next 'Gran Turismo' side by side with its history, that I will keep my mouth shut."
Ryan is said to have added that PS5's compatibility with PS4 games was due to fans' "real desire" for that support, but had no comment on whether Sony planned to enable compatibility with PS1 games.
