PS4 to PS5 Save Transfer Process:

Transfer digital games from a PS4 console to a PS5 console

  • You can access PS4 games on a PS5 console directly from a PS5 extended storage drive.

Compatible controllers on PS5 consoles

  • The DualSense™ wireless controller, DUALSHOCK™4 wireless controller and PlayStation officially licensed third-party gamepad controllers will work on PS5 consoles with supported PS4 games.
  • Specialty peripherals, such as officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks, will work with PS5 games and supported PS4 games.
  • Both the PS Move Motion Controller and the PlayStation VR Aim Controller will work with supported PS VR games on PS5 consoles.
