So, you've got your hands on a brand new PS4 Pro, and you may be wondering how to transfer all of your games, saves, and other data across to the supercharged system. Alternatively, you may have bought a PS4 Slim, and be looking to move all of your content across. But what's the easiest way to do this transfer?
Transfer Data from Another PS4
Well, good news folks, Sony's made it really easy for you to copy everything to your new console. All you need to do is hook up your new system and ensure that it's running the latest firmware. Connect it via Ethernet cable to your old console, and turn both systems on. Then, from the main menu of your new console, scroll to Settings > System > Transfer Data from Another PS4.
This will walk you through the process, but watch the video above in order to get a better idea of the steps involved. The protocol will carry across all of your settings, users, save data, themes, and game applications, so you're essentially mirroring your old console on a new one. The process will also deactivate your accounts on the old console, and activate them on the new one.
It's worth mentioning that once the transfer is complete, you will need to format your old console if you intend to sell it or give it away. This is simple enough to do: you can find the option in Settings > Initialisation. And that's all there is to it really – once copied you'll have a brand new PS4 with all of your games, saves, and settings intact. Perfik.
