Cool, thanks for the info. Pretty simple plug and play after a transfer from your PS4? Sounds like it works flawlessly for some people and disastrously for others
I did reinstall everything fresh tho, only transferred the saves across. Cannot vouch for what happens if people are taking their existing PS4 drive full of content across.

But starting fresh all good for sure.

Do I get ps5 patch download for free with ps4 discs or is the ps5 version separate purchase?
Like, if I put spuder man ps4 in ps5... do I get bc version or the full ray tracing patched version?
I have plenty of ps4 games on discs. All of them in fact

You will get the PS4 version of spiderman, the ps5 remastered version is locked behind spiderman Miles Morales ultimate edition and an upgrade for the standard edition.
Some games like Dead by deadlight or borderlands 3 wiill give You a ps5 version for free if You use your disc, it will download a PS5 version from the store but it will ask for the PS4 disc when You try to play it

I hate to ask, but what actually happens if you put P.T. on an external drive from a PS4 and hook it up to a PS5? Can you see the game but not launch it? Is it totally hidden in the interface? It's more for my technical curiosity.
You can see the game but when you try to play you get the message "Please play this title on a PS4"

Tried Evil within 2. 60 fps steady and not just at the start, played enough to get to the "open world". No drops to speak of there so far either.

I tried repeatedly transferring my games from my PS4 Pro to my PS5 using the data transfer.

Note, that the data transfer is a bit confusing, as it presents a screen for transferring game data like your saves, then presents a screen to transfer the game. I kept on exiting out after seeing the transfer game data screen and wonder where was the function to transfer games. Stupid the way it does that.

Anyways, every transfer I tried, either via WiFi (this is very slow) or using a network cable (this is much faster by the way), at some point on the PS5 will say (rebuild database, which takes about 1 second), will then show that the game is not there (Yes, I checked in all my games installed section) on the PS5, and when I go into the PS4 is hard locked on the transfer process which has not finished. Only way out of that on the PS4 is hold power button for like 8 seconds (after second beep) for power down, and then reboot into safe mode, which is again hold power button for eight seconds for second beep, and choose function, rebuild database.

I wonder, can I copy my games to an external drive on the PS4 and then attach that drive to the PS5? I have an extra HD drive, and an SATA to USB cable, but have not tried it yet.

Downloading all my games takes up way too much time, and uses up all my bandwidth quota. I have a 2TB drive on my PS4Pro, and tons on games on there. I would like to test out more games.

Metro Exodus anyone? Still 1080p30fps?
Okay I tried it myself now, sadly no improvement over the PS4 Pro gameplay. This is a bummer 4k60 on XSX looks incredibly good.

as my PS5 still isn't here:


Are there any improvements on Naughty Dog games?
As far as I know - no. They need to be patched for uncapped frame rates. But TLOU2 somehow uses the adaptive triggers of DS5.

Tried Mafia 3, one of the games that supposedly may have issues. Played for about an hour and didn't experience anything out of the ordinary. It was good to finally play at a solid 30, it was a mess on the Pro.

Also, Rime that had an unlocked framerate seems to be a solid 60 now. It was all over the place on the pro to the point I quit.

Edit3: Tried some close to the sun. Also one of the games with possible issues. On the prologue there seem to be graphical glitches related to the water/rain/thunder effects. Once you get inside (where I believe most of the game takes place), I didn't encounter anything odd. Also seems to be locked at 60. It'd be nice if somebody further ahead could report if it's indeed fine.

Rime is gorgeous. As is Abzu.

XsX version had unlocked framerate, or been patched recently?

Installing Valhalla from disc in UK does not give you the PS5 upgrade option. Been like that since launch on 19th! Constantly shows you £59.99

Sort it out ffs!!

Even though it doesn’t benefit from any PS5 boosts, Ratchet and Clank is still a stellar looking game all these years later. I enjoyed going back and getting the plat

as my PS5 still isn't here:


Are there any improvements on Naughty Dog games?
ive played TLOU:R, TLOU2, UC4, and Lost Legacy. I don’t think any are currently designed to show any improvements other than maybe TLOU:R running at locked 60 where maybe it dropped a little on Pro? TLOU2 should sefinitlryget a 4K/60 patch IMO


Tsushima in 60 FPS on my CX is INSANE.
Played it the past 5 hours, also on CX, and it's my only "next gen" game, since I'm not interested in any of the launchgames. At least, GoT feels like a PS5 game.
Yah. I’m playing it for first time now on PS5 and it’s the most impressive game I’ve played so far other than Demon’s Souls. For reference, I’ve plat’d Astro and Miles, played Demon’s Souls for about 12 hours, and briefly glanced at Godfall. GoT is just a stunning game

I don’t own a CX but I’m thinking of upgrading to one. My X900F still looks good tho

Tied out Days Gone last night, and it's always buttery smooth. Very impressive.

One of the biggest problems before was when traveling on the motorcycle, there would be these annoying pauses, as it was streaming in assets, and now it does not do this at all. The developer even indicated these pauses were a streaming issue. So playing off of the internal PS5 SSD is the way to go.

If you have not played this yet, strongly suggest you play the PS5 version.

REALLY REALLY IMPRESSED BY THE PS5'S BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY. (Yes, this deserves a shout)
I got the platinum for Days Gone when it came out and I never had any lock ups / pauses. The game simply ran like ass with mid-20 fps at all times here.

That being said... I‘m really disappointed that barely any first party games added proper PS5 support/ports for their titles. I honestly expected a more in-depth upgrade for TLOU2 (not that I‘d touch that game again) or GoW.

Was perfect on pro when I played it. However that was later in after multiple patches. But that was smooth 30, now it’s pristine 60.

The Last Guardian (disc version) on PS5 wow just so slick at 60fps and it looks so good too! The controls are just bearable now. Going to actually finish the game now.

The pain is even though I've turned games updates off the PS5 still wants to update Last Guardian to the latest update this must be a bug! If l get the latest version no 60fps 1890p resolution.

My thoughts after I last night tested some out



I took the risk and got my external hardrive hooked up with loads of ps4 games on it.. so far so good.. but i don't even know how often i will use backwards compat because look at this shit..

After playing some of these. Next gen games for this past week.These old games in backwards compatibility. Do not hold up well at all. I can't see myself using this much. They honestly may look worse than they did on ps4 somehow..?




Death stranding is the only one to me that holds up kinda well. Spiderman had tons of jagged moving edges in the landscape.. god of war, krato's head is jagged!! i don't remember that on ps4 at all! granted, that was taken in 60fps mode performance which i think is 1080p, but there's no way it what that was bad on ps4. and outer worlds looks vomit enducing..

guys i can't play these old games. not after i've experienced the fruits of next gen. i can't go back. especially since dualsense doesn't benefit from ps4 games

Anyone able to test Skyrim for load times on internal and external?

I'm sure Bethesda will be kind and give me a chance to buy another copy of it but I'd like to know if it's any good for the PS4 version

So far I have tried EDF 4.1 and MHW Iceborne. Both games get 60 fps with no slowdown.
I wasn't able to get any slowdown on EDF, and anyone who has played it knows that when enough bugs and explosions come together, stutters and slowdown are bound to happen.
I was especially surprised with Iceborne, with lots going on in resolution mode and still getting 60 fps.

I have several more games I can try, if anyone is interested. If you guys mention a game I have, I'll give it a go and report back.

GT Sport. - tried the one race that always would get choppy on my PS4 Pro in 4K mode, especially when you would hit the Ring section after the track portion. Runs super smooth now :). Hope we hear some news on GT7 before the end of the year.

Black Desert seems all over the place with some graphical glitches that wasn't present on the Pro
Primal PS2 Classic also has graphical glitches too(but it does warn you when you start the game)

I was thinking it's sad that the only 60fps console version of skyrim is on psvr.

Used an external drive to move games off my PS4 Pro, and tested some more games.

Battlefront II, The Division 2 and Bulletstorm all run great.

I wish there also was a copy for games instead of just move.

So I've tested the following games with performance problems on PS4 Pro

Neptunia 4 Goddesses Online - stable 60, no bugs.
Ni No Kuni 2 - now stable 60 on world map, no bugs.
Nioh 2 - stable 60 in cinematic mode.
Code Vein - stable 60, no bugs.
Trials of Mana - stable 60, no bugs.

Dead Cells - no bugs, performance was already perfect on Pro
Tetris Effect - same as above
