Saving PlayStation Now progess

How to download or upload a PlayStation Now game save.

 
 

This is helpful if your previously played game is available on PlayStation Now and you no longer have the game disc/download that you previously played on your PlayStation system.

PS Now Save files are stored on the PS Now Cloud Server with the game, but there are a few ways to use existing saves or when you use PS Now on a PC.

What do I need to be able to continue play on PlayStation Now?

  • An active PlayStation Plus subscription.
  • A saved game uploaded to Plus Online Storage from a previous PlayStation session.
  • The previously played game must also be available on PlayStation Now.
  • Check the Plus Online Storage article for more information.
  • Any other PlayStation Now requirements listed on the PlayStation Now article.
