How to Back Up Your PS4 Games and Data


The PlayStation 4 (PS4) received the most-anticipated Yukimura update, also known as Firmware 2.50, on Sunday. This was important for a number of reasons, the most important of which is the ability to back up the entire contents of your PS4, including game installs.

This will help if you ever need to reinstall a game. Some of which, like Grand Theft Auto V weigh around 40GB. With the new update, you won’t need to re-download any of your digitally purchased games if you decide to upgrade your PS4’s hard drive to something more substantial than the current 500GB. This can also be useful if you’ve deleted a game to make room on your console, and want to play it again.
