Recent articles

Sony implements the first on Wednesday, April 14 important update around the world with new features and improvements to the PS5 system and just like at home Game’o’Matic we’re nice, we’ll tell you everything here.

Players have been waiting for it from the start and this feature is finally available. You can now save your games in addition to your PS4 games PS5 on an external storage and this in a simple way. This allows you to expand your storage space, which was heavily criticized at the console’s launch given the size of next-generation games.

Bad news: games can’t be started directly from the external drive for now. The games that are restored to the console’s SSD drive are automatically updated and you have the option to choose whether you want to install only the campaign or multiplayer mode as offered by the Call of Duty license, for example.

External storage will then be compatible with M.2 readers but it won’t be for a while. here’s one tutorial to guide you through this new feature.

You can now share a game between PS4 and PS5 and vice versa to easily show your game to your friend or even let him play for you during a game PS5 while it’s on his PS4. Another nice novelty is that you can create a virtual controller to play with your teammate if he doesn’t own the game.

The request to join a game session is worked out with a shortcut, both on PS4 and on PS5 and you have the option to block the players you don’t want to join in Party through the confidentiality settings.
