Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What’s the difference between PS4 Pro and PS5 controllers?

There has been a quite drastic change in the next-gen controller. From the back PS5 controller almost looks like an Xbox controller. Something that PS5 controllers have is a dual sense controller which you cannot get in PS4/PS4 pro. As you know, PS4 controllers come in a lot more different array colors. Also, there are few features they have added to PS5 to get that working better

 

Is PS4 Pro worth buying in 2021?

Although the  PS4/PS4 Pro is an 8 years old machine, it is still a very capable machine. Still, if you are going for a brand new PS4 Pro then I’ll suggest you don’t go for it. Because there is no backward compatibility in PS4 Pro, so you cannot play older games. Also, PS5 games are going to be so graphically intensive. So it’s not a good idea to get a new PS4 Pro if you’re looking to play the latest games.

 

Can you use the same PSN account for PS4 and PS5? If yes, then how?

Yes, It is possible to have the same account on PS4 and PS5. It only takes just a few steps to power on the PlayStation 5 console. When you do it you should connect your controller to the console using a USB cable in the initial setup flow. See that your internet connection is set up and updated to the latest system software. You will see a manual sign-in option to sign. Enter your email address and password. I know this looks to be a little tricky for a few people. But I think this is the only thing you can do.

 

Can a PS5 controller work without a battery?

Yes! Unlike the Xbox controller which requires AAA Batteries to work. PS5 does not use AAA Batteries but instead has a rechargeable battery within which can be charged using the Micro USB cable. And you can always use your controller by directly connecting it to the PS5 using the Micro USB cable without any worries about the discharging battery- Dual shock discharges pretty fast, especially while playing games that use its motor functions.

 

Can I transfer my data from PS4 to PS5?

Yes, you can. Your PS4 account can transfer to PS5, along with all your trophies, friends list, and games library. Even some of your games will get upgraded to the PS5 version. However, saving games is a bit of a mess right now. As far as I am concerned, anything stored in PS4 will be there till the time you play those games in backward compatibility. But when it comes to cross saving there are a number of PS4/5 titles that don’t support cross-generation saving. Although it is a bit weird because the Xbox versions of those games will support not just jumping from old gen to new-gen but also back again. So all I know is Sony hasn’t provided a way for developers to transfer/convert saves from PS4 to PS5 as standard. But I hope they will fix it soon.

 

Conclusion:

We all know that whenever PlayStation comes with its new model then it will be better than the previous one in every single aspect. So here it comes with PS5. To sum things up, I think PS5 is a better choice in terms of pricing and features. But it has some cons too, also PS4 pro is a considerable edition of PlayStation, as it comes with a great design and architecture. It also has an upgrade advantage that if you have purchased the PS4 version then you will get the PS5 version at no extra cost. PS5 is great and more powerful than PS4 pro or ps4. Still, if I get to choose between these two then PS5 will be prior for me.
