The announcement of the PlayStation 4 Pro is clearly targeted toward the most hardcore PlayStation fans – meaning many of those who adopt the upgraded console likely already own the original PlayStation 4 console.

Therefore, Sony has stated that all games, saved data, and captured content currently on any PS4 will be easily transferrable to the new PlayStation 4 Pro.

Data between consoles will be able to be transferred with the use of a single ethernet cable.

“This process will also work from standard PS4 to standard PS4, PS4 Pro to standard PS4, and PS4 Pro to PS4 Pro provided that both units have system software update 4.00 or higher installed, and the same PSN account is signed into both systems,” Sony wrote in a PS4 Pro FAQ.

Additionally, by simply logging into your PlayStation Network profile on your new PS4 Pro, you will be able to re-download any games you previously purchased, as well as download any saved game data you have in online storage.

Sony announced the new PS4 Pro at the PlayStation meeting earlier this week as a more powerful, 4K-capable PlayStation 4 console. While the PS4 Pro will be available on November 10 for $399, a slimmer version of the current PS4 will be available on September 15 for $299.

    Wow. You need to use a cord? What year is this 2000?

    Xbox uses the cloud for saved games and transferring data from Xbox to Xbox.

    Sony is so woefully behind in terms of software and network infrastructure is sad.
