    ...anyone know if this will work across PS4 and PS5? I know there will be exclusive games for the PS5, but a lot of games will be designed for both consoles.

    If someone had both PS4 and PS5, could they game share across them, like they could if they had 2 PS4’s in different locations for example?

    Thanks

    The answer sucks but honestly it will depend on the game...Sony don't have a centralised system for ps4-ps5 so the publishers are setting the rules. With some games for example you can only upgrade via a fee or by purchasing the correct (more expensive) edition on ps4 first.

    Thanks both! I couldn’t find a definitive answer to this anywhere, hence my question.

    I’m sure some publishers will be downright awkward if they’re in control, but then I guess that’s to be expected. I’d imagine games like FIFA, Fortnite etc will be fine...
