    Just curious, does anyone use both a PS4 and a PS5, and if so, are saves shareable both ways between both machines using cloud saves?

    For example, if I were playing a game on the PS4, then played the same game on the PS5, does the cloud save feature work to move progress from PS4 to PS5? Then, if I were to create a save on the PS5, can I use this on the PS4 in a similar way? Just asking as I have two PS4's at the moment that I use TSW2 on, and I share saves back and forth between them using the cloud saves with PS Plus. If in the future I changed one of them to a PS5, I just wanted to know if I could continue like this with a PS4 and a PS5. TIA.

    Yes, they are swappable as the game is a PS4 game. I regularly cloud save and download it on the other system.
    You do have to manually download/upload the saves though.

    PS5 makes a different between saves from PS5 and PS4 games. Each goes in it´s own cloud and
    because TSW 2 / 2020 being PS4 games, you can swap saves like Nick Y mentioned above.

    Technically yes. Unlike Xbox Play Anywhere games, where you progressed is synchronised to the cloud and is downloaded so you always have the most up-to-date save data, you'll have to manually download the save data between the PS4 and PS5, either through PS Plus or by using a USB stick.

    What if you play the PS5 version of a game, can the save be shared with the PS4 version?

    No, I'm afraid not. For Sony the PS4 version of TSW and the PS5 verstion are two different games. DTG is working on a solution to carry over progress between PS4 and PS5 version, but it won't come any time soon.
