I found an offer for 87p for a month of PS+ on the dashboard so that'll do me for saves. Everything else I'll just redownload or install. Nice guide though

Actually it might be worth doing that transfer for my accounts and stuff and just not tick games. My HDD could do with a good clear out anyway.

Many moons ago, I signed up for a US account on my PS4 and bought a couple of games on there, one of which was a Lego game which I now want to show my daughter.

However, when I switch to the other account from my usual UK one, it asks me to sign in to the PlayStation Network, and it keeps going on a loop of updating profile, choosing privacy settings and confirming, but nothing changes and I'm back to the dashboard again.

Does anyone know a way around this?

I'm tempted to rip the thing apart and replace the thermal paste but I'm worried about affecting the value with a missing warranty sticker and probably breaking some of the plastic clips holding it together.
Mines pretty much silent compared to my launch day one it replaced. The fan can kick in a bit when it's being pushed by pro enhanced stuff especially with HDR. Horizon Zero Dawn being an example

That's the best thing to do, transfer everything except games and just install them when you need them.

I had about 400gb to transfer, that included games, both consoles wired to my router and still took about 7 hours.

Some people claim it only takes a couple of hours including games, they are talking crap!

Weird! Tried deleting the account from your console and adding back? Or maybe access the account from a web browser and see if you can update or at least accept T&C's that way?

Do you know if using a wired connection helps or is it just a slow process however you're connected?

I'd always expect a wired connection to be quicker than a wireless one.

The only other way to do it, is wire the two consoles to each other, not via a router, and let them use wifi to connect to the net, might improve things.

While sitting round waiting for the courier it occurred to me that I could hook up an external HDD and copy my games over that way. Will that work?

THat will work - but note that the saves will not transfer over so you'll need to back them up separately to the cloud or usb stick

Thanks, I ended up doing a combination of things. Re-adding accounts fresh, copied a couple of big digital games to an external HDD and reinstalled Horizon from disc. It all seemed pretty flexible on how I went about it.

Is it just me or is the PSN store on the PS4 incredibly laggy? I press a button to move to a category and it takes a few seconds, it also skips categories on the left hand menu, and skips highlighting games. Really annoying as it has never been an issue before today.

I recently got a PSVR so not sure if that is the cause...

Don't know what happened with the above but after a few days it resolved itself.

I'm buying so knowing my luck it'll be on PS+ next month.
Salt and Sanctuary is now available on the VITA too now. Free if you bought it on PS4.

Has anyone here filled up both their hard drive and the external drive as well?

Is it easy enough to transfer everything across from an external drive to a new, bigger external drive?

I just managed to solve this one 5 minutes ago, so thought I'd share the solution in case anyone else has the same problem.

Since buying the PS4 Pro, I'd set up the US account on it, but hadn't activated the Pro as my Primary PS4 on that account, only the UK one.

All is hunky dory now!
