Running PS4 games on the PS5 and a couple of hints

Hello all, just a note for anyone wanting to run the PS4 games on the new console... some games will run like poop if you simply load from the disc so if you haven't already, go back to your PS4 and make sure you upload all your saved material to the cloud. Then go back to the PS5 and after loading from the disc, go in and download your cloud data. All the PS4 games run better after you do this.

By the way, if you do MP, run the console at Performance mode. If you're doing campaign, I prefer Resolution mode.

Last point - since the 5 wants you to use a two step verification, don't. If you're still running a PS4 and/or PS3. The problem is you cannot log back onto PSN on the latter two consoles unless you create a new password and when you go back to one of the other two, - same thing so to avoid this major pain in the arse, go into the settings and disengage the two step verifcation. You can only do this on the 5. There is no option to kill that on the other two consoles but you will not have to fight every time you want to use another console.

That's good advice. Thank you for sharing! I still run my PS3 and PS4 (obvs lol) and log into both pretty regularly so knowing this will save me a lot of headache!
