PS4 to PS5: Game Transfer Depends on Developers, Says Sony



PS4 to PS5: Game Transfer Depends on Developers, Says Sony

Continuing in this vein, Sony published an extensive article in the official PlayStation blog

in which you answer frequently asked questions regarding your new console and its compatibility with PS4. One of the things he talks about is transferring games from current generation games to your PS5 version, refers to titles that will come out in both generations (Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, FIFA 21, Watch Dogs Legion) and not backward compatible ones, whose PS4 games can be seamlessly transferred to PS5 via cloud, Wi-Fi, cable or even on a USB device.

It's the fact that you play like DiRT 5, Maneater The Yakuza: Like a Dragon have confirmed that we will not be able to continue the game of PS4 in its version of PS5 what is causing people to talk, PlayStation has just answered: depend on the developers. Each studio or publisher will have the power to decide whether or not they want the progress of their games to be transferred from PS4 to PS5, so that players will have to consult each case in a specific way to know if they will be able to keep their games or not in the jump to the new generation of consoles.

Transfer of items: total, partial or null

At the moment we know that many games, like Spider-Man: Miles Morales

, allow to transfer your games from PS4 to PS5 from the first day it is for sale in the market. Others like Sackboy: A Big Adventure, will receive that functionality later by upgrade. Speaking of third-party games we find more varied cases, such as that of FIFA 21, which will only allow transferring the progress of two game modes (FUT and VOLTA) while the rest will restart on the jump to PS5.

On the side of those who have already confirmed that they will not have cross-save

intergenerational we find games of the stature of DiRT 5 The Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which will not be able to keep PS4 games when players upgrade to their PS5 version. Neither will Spider-Man: Remastered, the next-gen version of the Insomniac Games game for PS4, although here the excuse is that the studio considers it another game apart.

For those who do have the ability to transfer games between generations, Sony explains on its blog that it can be done via LAN connection (With cable) or WiFi (Without cable). You can also use an external memory with USB connection to save the PS4 games there and transfer them to PS5 by connecting it to the console. Users subscribed to PS More they will be able to do this process more comfortably storing your games in the cloud.
