If you have a PS4, and are looking to upgrade to the PS5 which was released in 2020, here is how you do it.

Step 1 Backup your Save Files

You will have to back up your save files to the cloud or you can copy your save files to a pen drive.

Step 2 Copy your Games to an External Hard Drive

The PS5 allows you to play PS4 games off an external drive. It’s a simple plug and play procedure on the PS5 to play PS4 games. 

Step 3 Reset your PS4

You need to reset your PS4 before you sell it, but that is pretty easy to do. This will ensure that when you play your PS4 games on the PS5, you can pick up right where you left off. 

Go to Settings -> Initialization -> Initialize PS4 -> Full. Note: This can take an hour.

Finally, Where and How to Sell your PS4?

Facebook Marketplace is a great place to sell used electronics, but you need to make sure that you price the console and any extras accurately. Be prepared for low offers, watch out for scams and you’re going to need to verify payment options and then meet up with the potential buyer.

eBay is another good place to sell used electronics, but they charge fees for the sale. Note: eBay and PayPal always side with the buyer, which is why many of people turn to Facebook or a trade-in.
