For those among us who want to organise our games in specific ways, folders are simply a must. As we move into the next-generation, which will also bring a whole host of PS4 games over to PS5, we may want to be more organised than ever with folders.

Unfortunately, folders will not be a feature of the PlayStation 5 from day one of the console. It will instead arrive as a post-launch update sometime down the line.

This is obviously a bit of an annoyance for those of us who want to categorise our games on PS5, whether that’s to signify backwards compatible games, those that are part of a series, or something else.

PlayStation players should be used to this, however. The PS4 didn’t receive folders until almost three years after the console launched.

We’re not saying that the PS5 won’t have folders until 2023, but we really hope that isn’t the case. It’s not a deal-breaker by any means, just a nice little feature that’s really expected to come as standard these days.

In better PS5 news, here are the PS4 games with free PS5 upgrades you have to look forward to, as well as which Rockstar games you can play from launch.
