How to use your old PSN account on PlayStation 5

It has been a while since the PlayStation 5’s User Interface was teased during the reveal of PlayStation 5. It was just a few seconds of a tease, and then it transitioned into Astro’s Playroom – which is a pre-installed game that shows off the DualSense’s capabilities. That’s the last we saw of the User Interface. Then on October 12th, Burger King started a weird tease on Twitter. Shortly thereafter, Sony surprised the world with the official unveiling of the PlayStation 5’s User Interface, which Sony is dubbing the “User Experience.” PlayStation Support’s YouTube channel uploaded a series of videos about how to do certain things on PlayStation 5. Learn how you can use your old PlayStation Network account on the new PS5 console…

When you power on your PlayStation 5 console for the first time, you’ll be asked to connect your PS5 controller to the PlayStation 5 console using a USB cable. During the initial setup, you’ll be asked to setup the internet connection, and update the system software to the latest version. At this point, you will be taken to the “Sign In” menu, this is where you either sign up for a new account on PlayStation Network, or log into your old PSN account. You can also use the new PlayStation App to log into your PSN account on PlayStation 5.

And that concludes the PlayStation 5 user account tutorial.
