For me this is one thing Sony need to do with the ps5 just because Microsoft have. I do wonder if ps5 games will work on the ps4 and the other way round to as this is the road microsoft have said they are going so I see Sony matching this. Intresting times for the console market.

You're referring to forwards compatibility rather than backwards. No PS5 games won't work on PS4 just like PS4 games won't run on a PS3, PS 3 games won't run on a PS 2 and so forth.

No, we dont need the Xbox 1 and PS4 holding back the PS5 and Next Xbox.

There wont be forward compatability. That wouldnt even work. Backward compatibility is a different question.
