PS5 News Today March 21: Avengers save issues, Restocks and PS Plus

The PS5 is shaping up to be one of the most popular consoles of all time, with it currently outselling the PS4 during the same point of its lifecycle.

Here is all of the latest news from stock updates to the latest games.

Avengers Upgrade Is A Mess

The next-gen version of Marvel's The Avengers was recently released and PS5 players have had some trouble trying to get their PS4 saves to work on the next-gen system.

This caused the developers to release a lengthy solution on how to transfers saves from the PS4 to PS5.

"How to migrate your save from PS4 to PS5:
Launch the fully patched PS4 version and go to the save migration tab on the main menu to initiate the upload.
Once the migration is done, launch the PS5 version, where you'll be prompted to download the data.
Even if you have the PS4 and PS5 version of the game on the same console, save migration is necessary to boot the save on the PS5 version.
You'll need to download the latest update for the PS4 version so you can download the PS5 version.
If you're running the version of the PS4 game that has not been updated, you won't see the save migration tab, and won't be able to transfer save data."

To transfer your save on Xbox, simply load the game...

Major Restocks This Week

It is being reported that many retailers will be receiving major restocks over the coming week.

According to PS5 UK Stock - Instant Updates, GAME, John Lewis, Very and ASDA will be receiving more stock mid-next week, while Amazon and Argos will be coming the week after.

This would put the first drop at around March 24th-25th, and the second between March 29th and April 2nd.

But, if you have to have a new console now and can't wait for new stock, you do have a few options, although we don't recommend them.

PS Plus Games Revealed Soon

April's PS Plus games are due to be released on April 6th.

This means that we can expect the reveal date to be around March 31st.
