Topic: PS5 auto updating PS4 games even with auto updates disabled

Posts 1 to 7 of 7

I live in the States and have a data cap just over 1TB/month, which is rarely an issue for me. However, last night while I was playing 13 Sentinels, I started getting notifications that my PS5 was updating PS4 games stored on my external HDD, even though I have software auto updates turned off. I had around 10 notifications pop up, but when I checked the PS5 notification hub, it didn't show any downloads.

My concern is that my external is 8TB and it's almost full...meaning there are a lot of PS4 games that would easily exceed my data cap if they were to all auto update. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, is there a way to stop these auto updates?

Why is your game console connected to a mobile phone network? How does that even work?

@Agricultural It’s not a mobile network, some broadband companies put in data caps.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@Agricultural I wish it was my mobile network. That one is unlimited. But I'm not paying $150/month for unlimited data with an ISP when the base amount is more than enough...unless I'm downloading 5GB updates for 400 games.

@lacerz $150 a month??? Do you live in a barn in the middle of nowhere? That seriously sucks, I have unlimited data caps at roughly 12MB/s wired and 8MB/s wireless for £30 a month. Unless it’s just a USA thing, I honestly don’t get why your ISP is charging that much.

@nessisonett That's how it is in the States. That's for Internet only. It's more if you add on a cable TV package (they do discount both, but it goes to almost $200). That's why cord cutting is such a big thing. Cable companies (which are also ISPs) rake you over the coals. My Internet with the cap costs me $84/month.
