How To Transfer Your PS4 Data To PS4 Pro Console

- Dec 16, 2019-

PS4 Pro users who wish to transfer existing PS4 data to their new system can do so by following a simple process built into the PS4 operating system.


The following process enables existing PlayStation 4 owners to accurately select the data transferred, including games / applications, saved data, videos, screens, themes and settings.


The one thing you usually don't need to plug in is a LAN cable-you can't transfer data over WiFi.


Log in to PSN on your current PS4 and update to the latest system software.

On a new PS4 or PS4 Pro, log in to PSN and update to the latest system software. The system should detect this is a new console and ask if you want to transfer data. If not, go to "Settings", "System" on the new PS4 and transfer data from another PS4.


Follow the instructions on the screen until you are asked to connect to your PS4 system. Make sure you connect the new PS4 / PS4 Pro to the TV, and then connect it to the old PS4 using a LAN cable. Alternatively, use two LAN cables to connect two PS4 consoles to the same home network.


Select the data you want to transfer. Select everything or just the required data, including game / application data, game saves, screenshots, videos, themes and settings.


After the transfer process is complete, you will be asked if you want to set your new PS4 as the primary console.
