How to upgrade a game disc from ps4 to ps5

If you have a PS4 game on disc, the only option to upgrade it to PS5 is to have a next-generation console with a disc player. Since the PS4 Digital Edition does not count in it, you will have to wait for a digital update to become available.

To do so, you must follow these steps:

  • Sign in to your PlayStation Network account on your PS5 console.
  • Insert the eligible PS4 game disc.
  • Head to the game hub for the PS4 title.
  • Choose the upgrade offer and review it.
  • Choose Download (or purchase with the discount) to download or purchase the content.
  • Once the download is complete, you will only be able to use the game on your PS5 as long as the disc remains inserted.

According to Sony, in order to upgrade a PS4 game on disc to a digital version of PS5 it must have originated from the same country as your PlayStation Network account, so you’ll need to verify your address at Accounts administration.

Please note that PS4 games redeemed as a PlayStation Plus benefit are not eligible for a PS5 upgrade, unless otherwise stated.

How to know what version of the game you are using

If you have both PS4 and PS5 versions of the same game, you have the ability to choose which one you want to play. To do so, follow these steps:

  • From the games home screen, go to the library.
  • Select the game and press the X.
  • mark the button […] on the screen to check the options.
  • Select the version of the game you want to download or play.

To identify which version you’re using, note that only PS4 games show the “PS4” stamp next to the name at the top of the screen, while PS5 versions only tell you the title.
