How PlayStation Plus Saves Work

The way PlayStation Plus saves work depends on whether you are streaming or playing a downloaded game.

Streaming Games

If you’re streaming a PlayStation Plus game, the saved data is stored on the PlayStation Network. This means you can pick up your stream on another device and continue your game without taking any other steps.

Downloaded Games

If you’re playing a downloaded PlayStation Plus game, the saved data is saved to the console storage of your PS5™ console or PS4™ console.

Transferring Saved Data

Saved data is not automatically transferred between streamed and downloaded games. However, you can transfer saved data using PlayStation Plus cloud storage. To transfer saved data between game types, you need to upload the saved data to cloud/online storage and then download it to your device.

Uploading Saved Data to Online Storage

First, upload your saved data to PlayStation Plus online storage:

  • Streamed PlayStation Plus game: Copy saved data to online storage using the PC app, PS5 console, or PS4 console.
  • Downloaded PlayStation Plus game: Upload saved data to online storage using the PS5 console or PS4 console.

Downloading Saved Data from Online Storage

Once the saved data is in online storage, download it from online storage on another device to carry on playing:

  • Streamed PlayStation Plus game: Copy saved data from online storage using the PC app, PS5 console, or PS4 console.
  • Downloaded PlayStation Plus game: Download saved data from online storage using the PS5 console or PS4 console.

Conclusion

The PlayStation Plus cloud storage service provides a convenient way to save and transfer game progress. Whether you’re switching devices or moving between streamed and downloaded games, this feature ensures that you can always pick up right where you left off. This is a significant advancement in the gaming industry, making gaming more flexible and convenient for users around the globe.
