Two other games have confirmed the lack of file compatibility between the consoles of the PlayStation family
PS5 will be released in about a month and a half, with the console taking Sony to mark several of the guidelines for the start of the next generation of consoles. Along with this will come various exclusive experiences, such as the highly anticipated Remake of Demon’s Souls , but we will also see how many games available on the PS4 version free updates to upgrade to a PS5 version . Today, unfortunately, we have little positive news for two games in particular: Maneater and DiRT 5.
No trophies, no stats and no saves for Maneater and DiRT 5 on PS5
Likewise, we’ll report that Maneater and Dirt 5 have confirmed that they will have the option to upgrade your version from PS4 to PS5 , which is great news for gamers, but it’s not so good to know that progress on the console still present Sony will not be transferred to the new one . The really curious thing about the case is that in both games the same thing happens ( one , two ): Xbox One and Xbox Series will have full compatibility, because in exact terms it is about “the same application ‘, although between PS4 and PS5 it is considered a different application, so anything related to trophies, stats, or save files is completely incompatible.
We will point out, on the other hand, that the only progress which can be transferred between PS4 and PS5 compared to DiRT 5 – this always in the event of access to the free improved version – will be that of Creations of playgrounds , which makes this even more unique situation. What is becoming increasingly evident is that the development of the PS5 appears to have occurred in a relatively isolated context compared to the PS4, because with other games like Yakuza: Like a Dragon we have learned that nor would we have a save transfer between PS4 and the upgraded version of PS5.
In any case, we note that this compatibility of backups seems to remain a situation to be resolved on a case-by-case basis , well we must not forget that Insomniac Games has confirmed the compatibility of Spider-Man: Miles Morales between the consoles . We must therefore have the patience to learn how each of the developers and / or games that will make the leap to the new generation of game consoles manage this fact. Sony.
