With over 4000 PlayStation 4 titles, 99% is a substantial number of games that will be PS5 backward compatible.

Right?  I was surprised by the number of games.  I had to check multiple sources to verify 4,000 was the right number.  I remember when the backward compatibility was first brought up by Sony and Microsoft for the first time.  You were lucky to have 5-10 titles available at launch.   Crazy where we are now.
