Sometimes PS4 saved games are not compatible with the PlayStation 5
It’s still interesting to see how enjoyable the PS4 to PS5 upgrade. It is obvious players need to leave some memory levels behind. All indications, for now, are that the Xbox Series X and Series S will be slightly more usable.
Sony has not yet officially confirmed anything about the PlayStation 5’s backward compatibility, unlike Microsoft. The Japanese company has so far only assured that “99 percent” of all PlayStation 4 games will also work on the PS5, but sometimes they are displayed much smoother and at higher resolutions, as is the case with the Xbox Series X, or whether they are displayed at all. The ability to run patches at 120 frames per second is not clear yet.
For many customers, it will be even more interesting to see if saved versions of PS4 games can be transferred to the next generation console. This question is apparently not easy to answer because it seems to be game-dependent. As an RG studio that built a lower Tweet Score below, at least Yakuza: Like a Dragon doesn’t upgrade to the next generation version, although it works for Xbox Series X.
To clarify, physical owners of Yakuza: Like a Dragon on PS4 can also use the original disc to upgrade to the PS5 version when it releases on March 2, 2021.
Save data will not be transferable between the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game.

Don’t Expect Your PS4 Saves To Work On PlayStation 5
Things look different from Spider-Man: Miles Morales – James Stevenson of Insomniac Games stated in the tweet below that the save states of this game can be exchanged between PS4 and PS5 versions. However, the same is not the case for the slightly older Spider-Man game, in which existing saves cannot be carried over to the PS5 remaster, which is included in the final 80-mile Morales edition.
This keeps upgrading to Sony’s next-generation console unnecessarily complicated. At the moment it is not even clear whether the saved games of older games that do not receive a patch for the PS5 are compatible with the new console. Hopefully, the hands-on videos, which will be released on Sunday will help.
