Sometimes when upgrading your physical or digital edition of the game from Your PS4 Games to PS5 you will have the option to play or download either version which may result in lower graphical power.
You may even be able to conserve hard drive space by a small amount if you wish to play the previous gen version. certain games that are sold for both the PS4 and PS5 with different graphical upgrades can look different when played on your PS5.
Upgrade PS4 Games to PS5
- When looking at your game library or the main menu you can see games for the PS5 will simply list the game name while PlayStation 4 versions of the game will list the game name PS4.
- If you find that you have the wrong version selected press the option button when selecting the game and scroll down to game version and be sure to select PS5 and whatever the game name is so that you are playing the correct version.
- If the game is not cross gen it will only have either the PS5 or PS4 version and you will have to choose between one or the other.
