With the PS5 out in some places this week and the rest of the places next week, a lot of people are probably on the floor of their living space rolling around with glee and excitement.

If that sounds like you, please make sure you hoover or sweep first, it's the right thing to do and you know it.

It's also fairly important you learn about the transition between the current-gen and the next-gen consoles, assuming you're sticking with the same company that is.

Because of that, PlayStation has released a video to show users how to transfer their PS4 games to their PS5.

How to transfer your PS4 games to PS5

Before we get in to anything, it's worth noting that there are four methods here; Data Transfer, Disc, External HDD, and the PSN store.

It's worth noting that the Data Transfer method only works if you've still got both consoles. The other three methods can work without both consoles, but they aren't as efficient.

Here's the video going over every method you can use:

As you can see, it's not actually that hard to do, and we're expecting the PSN store to be the easiest way to transfer games and probably the most used too.

What will the PS5 improve about your PS4 games?

The PS5 brings with it an awful lot of power, and that power will improve your PS4 games.

The most noticeable difference will be the loading times, which will be significantly reduced thanks to the custom SSD inside of the PS5.

On top of that, you can expect better performance and more stable frame rate as well, making the console useful even if you have no next-gen games.

That being said, we'd hold out until there were a few more next-gen games ourselves, but it's up to you.
