Why can't PS5 be perfectly compatible with old platform games?

According to foreign media reports, the upcoming PS5 from Sony is significantly inferior to the new Xbox from Microsoft in terms of compatibility with games. Although they previously announced their respective plans, they are still not very optimistic.
Why can't PS5 be perfectly compatible with old platform games?

Sony officials said that the number of PS5-compatible games has been expanded to more than 4000. Sony also promised to add support for higher frame rates and resolutions for these games, so that users can get better gaming experience.

It should be noted that the above compatibility is only part of the game for PS4, and like the old games of the PS3, PS2, and even PS1 era, Sony seems powerless.

In an interview with GamingBolt, Cradle Games technical director Marc-Andre Jutras analyzed Sony's ineffable secret: it’s really hard for an ordinary game player to understand the technical difficulties behind him. In the end, as long as you can find some kind of simulator, it is easy to achieve compatibility on a PC or a new host.

Even if individual games are not smooth, all old games will not work out the common. I still hope Sony can find a way, even if it's not perfect, but better than doing nothing.

However, as a game developer, Jutras naturally knows more complex technical details, especially those old games that previously appeared on the PlayStation platform. For example, some of these companies went bankrupt and closed, and it is difficult to solve the problem of licensing related games.

In addition, the old platform may have some form of digital copyright protection (DRM) at the hardware level, which may prevent the physical disk from reading the old game on the new platform
