The largest library of PlayStation games in the world

Explore PlayStation Store from your console, smartphone or web browser and discover a treasure trove of games — from triple-A blockbusters to indie gems — as well as add-ons and season passes. 

Every PS4 and cross-gen game you buy from PlayStation Store will be available in your game library on both PS4 and PS5, ready and waiting for you to download.

How to transfer games and save data from PS4 to PS5

Making the leap to PS5 doesn't have to mean re-downloading or re-installing your PS4 game collection to your new console.

External USB drive compatibility

PS5 consoles can store compatible PS4 and PS5 games to USB drives that support SuperSpeed USB*. That means you can save space on the internal Ultra-High Speed SSD, and save time by reinstalling PS5 games from the external USB drive, instead of redownloading them or installing from a disc.

When you’re ready to play a PS5 game that’s on an external USB drive, simply transfer the game back to the internal SSD via the Options Menu within the Library. You can play PS4 games directly from an external USB drive, or from the internal SSD.

*Minimum of 250 GB and maximum of 8 TB capacity.

Cross-gen saves

Take your adventures from your PS4 to your PS5 console without losing precious save data or player profiles. You'll get an alert when your PS5 console detects compatible save data in your PlayStation Plus cloud storage from the PS4 version of that game.

PlayStation Plus cloud storage*

Transfer save data from PS4 to PS5 by uploading to the cloud and re-download it on any PlayStation console you sign in on. Up to 100GB is included with your PS Plus membership!

Manage your storage with the PS App

Manage your PS5 storage on-the-move, start downloading games from PlayStation Store to your console and delete old games if you need to make space.

*PlayStation Plus membership required. PlayStation Plus membership is subject to a recurring subscription fee taken automatically until cancellation. Age restrictions apply. Full terms:

Frequently asked questions

Get answers to some of the most common questions for playing on both PS4 and PS5. 

Yes. More than 99 percent of the 4000+ games available on PS4 are playable on PS5. You can install PS4 games from disc* or download digital games purchased from PlayStation Store via your game library.

*PlayStation 5 disc edition only

Yes. Select PS4 games will see increased loading speeds when played on PS5, and will also leverage Game Boost, offering improved or more stable framerates. Some games with unlocked framerates or dynamic resolution up to 4K may see higher fidelity.

On PS5, PS4 games benefit from Game Boost automatically, and it doesn’t need to be toggled on or off like PS4 Pro’s Boost Mode feature. Additionally, PS4 games will also take advantage of some of PS5’s new UX features.

Additionally, if a PS4 game supported PS4 Pro enhancements such as improved graphics, higher resolutions, or increased performance and framerates, these will be available in the PS5 gameplay experience.

Yes. Storing PS4 games and playing them off a USB drive is a great way to access PS4 games on PS5 and enable easy access to PS4 games without needing to use any of PS5’s internal storage. We recommend doing this to save space on the internal console storage for PS5 games, which can’t be played off an extended storage drive.

Players can also set a system preference on PS5 that will, by default, install all PS4 games (including digital purchases from PlayStation Store, and game data from Blu-ray discs) and future game patches directly to a connected USB drive.

Note: Not all USB drives will work with PS5. An extended storage drive can’t be used through a USB hub, and two or more extended storage drives can’t be connected to PS5 at the same time.

Yes. PS5 games are unique and specially made to tap into the special benefits of the next generation of console gaming, including the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, ultra-fast loading times, enhanced visuals and 3D Audio.

Certain PS4 games can be upgraded to the digital PS5 version of the game on a PS5 console. When using a PS5 console, you may have the option to upgrade a disc or digital PS4 game to the digital PS5 version. Depending on the game, this upgrade may occur at no additional cost, may require a purchase, and may be available for a limited time. An Internet connection is required. For more information, refer here.  

For an example, the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and the PS4 version of Sackboy: A Big Adventure both offer upgrades to the digital PS5 versions of the games at no additional cost. If you own PS4 versions of these games, simply visit the game’s Hub for that title on your PS5 (Note: you’ll need to insert the PS4 disc into your PS5 console first if you bought the physical disc rather than the PS Store version of the PS4 game), and you’ll see an offer to download the PS5 version.

Please note: Blu-ray discs are not compatible with the PS5 Digital Edition. If you own PS4 Blu-ray discs, you will not be able to use them with the PS5 Digital Edition console, including to redeem offers to upgrade a PS4 game to a PS5 version. You can, however, upgrade eligible digital games.

Players can transfer game save files from a PS4 console to PS5 using a LAN cable, by connecting wirelessly (WiFi), or saving the save files to a compatible USB drive. And if you are an active PS Plus member, you can transfer your PS4 game saves to your PS5 using cloud storage.

Whether you’re playing a multiplayer PS4 game on your PS4 or PS5 (via backward compatibility), you will be able to play with other players on either console for the same game.

Yes, PS4 and PS5 players (and users of the new PlayStation app for mobile devices) can communicate via voice chat in Parties. Depending on the game, in-game chat will also work across PS4 and PS5 versions of a game.

Yes. If a PS4 game is playable on the PS5, and you are still a PlayStation Plus member, you will be able to download it onto your PS5 and play.

Yes, PlayStation VR games are included among the thousands of PS4 games that are playable on PS5. Playing PS VR games on a PS5 requires a PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera for PS4* and a PlayStation Camera adaptor (no purchase required, visit for details).

For the best PS VR experience on PS5, we recommend using a DualShock 4 wireless controller. Select games may require PlayStation Move motion controllers or be compatible with the PlayStation VR Aim controller. The new HD Camera for PS5 is not compatible with PS VR.

The PS VR headset, PS Camera, DualShock 4 wireless controller, PS Move controllers, and PS VR Aim controller are all sold separately from PS5. 

*Model CUH-ZEY1 or CUH-ZEY2

Yes, you can use PlayStation Move controllers or the PS VR Aim Controller in supported PS4 games on PS5, including PS VR software. You’ll need to connect the PS Camera to PS5 to enable PS Move or PS VR Aim Controller support, which requires the PlayStation Camera adaptor (no purchase required, visit for details).

Yes, the official Gold Wireless Headset and Platinum Wireless Headset are natively supported on PS5, using either the included wireless USB adaptor or the 3.5mm headset jack on the DualSense wireless controller.

Yes, any PS4 and PS VR games that are playable on PS5 will be available for purchase on PS5 through PS Store.

From PS5’s home screen, the “Game Library” will show all the PS5 and PS4 games you’ve purchased or played. This includes games you were able to play as a PS Plus subscriber. If those subscriptions have lapsed you will need to buy new subscriptions to be able to play those games again (note: PS Plus service availability varies by country).
