Sony has started to send PS5 consoles to the press for preview and review purposes. Images show the content of the boxes and more.
While the box cover is nothing new and we have seen it before in official retail promotional material, there are some new things that can be discovered on the box itself. One of these is for instructions that show how to transfer data from PS4 to the PS5. These can be found at the bottom of the console, as shared by Polygon’s Samit Sarkar.
These instructions explain the following procedure for transferring data from PS4 to the PS5.
You can transfer data to your PS5 console in the following ways.*
- Connect your PS4 console and your PS5 console to the same network.
- Connect your extended storage device from your PS4 console to your PS5 console.
- Sign in to your PS5 console with the account you created on a PS4 console.
You can transfer data such as gaming history and trophies, as well as profile and friend information.
*You must update to the latest system software.
It is a little hard to read the box in this image but you can zoom in to get a better view of it.
We can also find out the content of the box thanks to an image shared by the senior editor at Tech Radar.
The following things are included in the box along with the PlayStation 5 console.
Geoff Keighley has also received his box and shared multiple images and videos showing the various accessories, including a video where he removes the box and other accessories from the package sent to him by Sony. it is all neatly laid out in a lovely wrapper.
