How to transfer PS4 data to PS5?
Transfer data from a PS4 console to your PS5 console
Connect your PS4 console and PS5 console to the same network to transfer data such as game save data, user information, and downloaded content.
If you have a USB drive that you've been using as extended storage for your PS4 console, you can continue using it by simply connecting it to your PS5 console.
Use the same account you created on a PS4 console
There's no need to create a new account for your PS5 console. Just sign in with your existing account and your game history, trophies, profile, and any exchanges you've had with friends will transfer to your PS5 console.
