When should I use online storage?

  • Pick up play on a friend’s system

If you sign in to PSN on a friend’s PS4 console or PS5 console, you can pick up from the last save on your online storage. Don’t forget to manually upload your saves as they won’t upload automatically from your friend’s PlayStation console.

  • Upgrade/replacement

If you get a new PlayStation console, just sign in to PlayStation Network and download your saved data.

  • Crossplay games

These games can be downloaded and played on more than one type of PlayStation console. For example, if a game is compatible with both PS4 consoles and PS Vita, you can start playing at home, upload your save and continue later on your PS Vita.

  • PlayStation Now

If you subscribe to PlayStation Now and pick up a game that you previously played on a PS4 console, you can start from the last point you saved to online storage.
