How to get your PS4 ready for sale

If you follow me you will know I'm a big PlayStation fan and with the release of the PS4 Pro I've decided to sell my existing PS4 and go all in on the new model.

To make sure your data is safe you will need to clear down the hard drive and do a restore before selling. Here is what I did to clesr mine down.

  • Make sure you are running the latest operating system update
  • Deauthorise your PS4
  • Do a factory restore

It'll take a couple of hours to do a full restore but it's worth it.

Once you see the "plug in controller" screen you can turn off your console and pack it up.
