If I want to give my son my old PS4 and have the PS4 pro for myself... Can I do the above copy so I have all my old stuff but also leave him access to the same content and my same account? Or does it only let one console access the paid account? Thank you

What if the PS4 Pro comes in a bundle with another game and skins for that game?

I did this with my new god of war ps4 pro bundle and it deleted my god of war game on my ps4 pro. I went to the saved games under management and loaded it but nothing happens. Help?

Just connect the ethernet (LAN) cable from the PS4 to the PS4 Pro, and then coonect both wireless, then it works perfect! Then you don't need to go and buy 2 ethernet (LAN) cables! :-D Just to you guys, who wonder about buying another ethernet cable, DON'T! You're welcome! :-D

Ok so my first ps4 I have broke down with all of my games and data in it, so I went to gamestop to get another ps4 but before I did I ask the guy in the front desk and see if anyone try’s to buy my old ps4 will all the data and accounts on my old ps4 with be gone? He said yes then I ask him will I be able to get all of my data and accounts with appear on my new one he said yes so when I got all my games and controllers back I went on my ps4 put in my email but none of my data was there all m friends are still there but I’m missing games on the account so I went to settings then system then it says transfer data to another ps4 I did that but my old ps4 in at the GameStop so is there another way to transfer data without useing your old ps4?

Do you have to deactivate the account before or after the data transfer?

You don¨t need a router, you can connect directly from lan to lan and it will transfer much faster, I did 336 GB on 59 minutes

So what if my hard drive on my old PS4 is bigger than the hard drive on my new one? I have a 2TB hdd on my fat PS4 and all the PS4 pros have 1TB. How can I get my 2TB into the PS4 pro without losing any data?
Michael Barraza (7 months ago)
When the ps4 is transferring to the ps4 pro do I have to keep my old ps4 on while its transferring or when it is connected already can I just turn it off?
Cuckboi Gaming (7 months ago)
This video is terrible and un informative.
MarcTheBlerman (8 months ago)
Thanks for the video. With my experience, using an Ethernet cord to connect both systems to one another is a lot faster. 280gb in about an hour
Why oh Why wont Sony let you do this to a external hard drive ffs that is just flipping Great FFS.This means I cant trade it in to get the best price/money off the Pro I would have to buy the pro then sell my old ps4 for cash so get like 100 for it instead of 140 trade in Nice one Sony maybe we should just buy a Xbox 1 x instead?.

Maybe I sound like a douche, but I always can't stand it when narrators have a British accent.
Brian Menefee (8 months ago)
It took me 50 minutes to transfer over 380GB. Maybe look into an internet upgrade if it's taking you that long.
casterlord (8 months ago)
Can’t you just use your playstation plus to download your game data to your new ps4 after you’ve activated your playstation account? And I was also thinking just putting my 2TB hard drive into the new ps4, what will happen?

Yiannismom (4 months ago)
Admyr 6 we tried it both ways.
Admyr 6 (4 months ago)
Yiannismom are you using the method with one lan cable or 2 of these? I recommend the method with one lan cable takes just about one hour for 250+gb
Yiannismom (4 months ago)
How is that possible??? We have 277GB and it’s still not done and we started last night. It jumped from 72 minutes and now it says 99 hours. It’s been sitting at 11.96GB since 11:25 pm...
Mark Bai (9 months ago)
Do you need to have both PS4's connected to a tv screen or just the one doing the transfer?
Levy LB (9 months ago)
Just need a PS4 Pro

Kaiju Hanta (10 months ago)
Hi, do you first create your main PSN account (the one you've been using on your PS4) on PS4 Pro before transferring the data?  What about if you have multiple accounts on your old PS4?  How do you transfer data from all of them?
kayra Cetin (10 months ago)
Does it eat from your internet tho?
Anton Walters (10 months ago)
When it is transferring can put it in rest mode ?
Dj Lynchy (10 months ago)
Can you just simply change the hardrives over and then put all the hard drive storage on a pic then onto the bigger one. I'm thinking this because i was thinking of getting the PS4 pro because the port on my PS4 is broken so I can't do this method.

Cheddar (11 months ago)
Can't you just go to sign in and just re-download the games you already bought off the store I'm asking because my ps4 is shiting the bed so I'm looking to trade it in for a pro
Billy Badass (11 months ago)
to bad I already shipped my PS4 back to the store I didn't realize that this step was done this way..
Casshern (11 months ago)
Is it not possible to backup your old PS4 and use that backup on the PS4 Pro. I'm in this situation right now as I'm going to trade in my old PS4 to a Pro in CEX. If trade in my old ps4 after getting the Pro from CEX then I lose the extra value of voucher over cash. Oh the 1st world problems are excruciating lol
Hayden Gregory (11 months ago)
Does all your data from your old one stay on your old PS4 like a copy?
TikkStar Gaming (8 months ago)

Fayyaz Hossain (1 year ago)
so connect both ps4s to a Ethernet cable, to start the process to on the old ps4 and to the setting and click transfer data to new ps4 and follow the rest of the directions, something like that
David Hunter (1 year ago)
HEY YA'll.. Dave from Down under (Australia, not that other down under get your mind out of the gutter), I just grabbed a PS4 Pro today, have an old PS4 500gb model and all my games stored on an external hard drive. The easiest way to transfer from ps4 to ps4 pro of course is the lan cable thing right? What about games? Do i just take my hard drive out and then only transfer system settings and pictures etc etc...then plug in my external hard drive to the new pro once it has done? Or do i need to transfer all and keep my drive plugged in?
Lasse Biede (1 year ago)
my ps4 got stolen and i bought a new one, any way to get my games back!!?
Aby Gomez (1 year ago)
okay so I came here because I just bought a pro today and wanted to do this transfer data crap, this video left some questions unanswered, first off dont do nothing to your old ps4 (data management wise) dont take out the hdd, dont swap them out and expect it to work. nothing just leave as is second make sure you have a long ethernet cable or another tv/monitor side by side. I didnt take into account my other tv is across my apt so I had to drag my whole bedroom setup into my living room where my ps4 usually is (its a fucking hassle since I didnt want to wait to buy an 80 foot ethernet cable.) Which brings me to the ethernet cable business, this video skips the part where your new ps4 asks to plug in via LAN (ethernet cable) to your old ps4. I dont know if this transfer of data can be done over wifi Im assuming not because It didnt give me the option to. If you do the transfer via LAN in theory it should not take long, I have 850GB of data to transfer and it says my wait time is 4 hours (edit: now it says 5) which isnt too bad considering all the crap I have. The video leaves all this kinda info out for some reason but be prepared to have LAN CABLES, TIME, EXTRA TV/MONITER to pair side by side Oh and a shitload of patience. (edit: i didnt make it clear either but you have to physically connect two ps4s directly with a lan cable, no router in between nothing)

Would this method work for transferring PT to PS4 Pro?
