PS5: How to Create a Video Game Folder

The PS5 update added an important feature that has been strangely missing since launch: the ability to create folders to store your games.

The PlayStation 5 is a great console in many ways. But do not forget that it was launched with missing functions, but they are nevertheless necessary. Thankfully, since November 2020, Sony has been regularly updating the PS5 to make it more complete and ergonomic.

On September 7, 2022, the PlayStation 5 received a new system software update. Among the new features included is the ability to create video game folders, a feature that was available on the PS4 (although, again, it was added long after release).

Creating a folder with games on PS5 is not so easy

Nothing is ever easy with Sony, and creating folders of video games on the PS5 is another proof of that. One would think that one could quickly add a game displayed on its home page by pressing the Options button on the controller. In fact, the folders created in this way on your PS5 will not appear on the main screen, but in the Your Collection tab – which complicates things.

To create a folder with the game you need:

  • Go to Game Library > Your Collection;

  • Click “Create a list of games”;
  • Select games;
  • Choose a name for your folder;
  • Confirm creation.

After creating a list, you can change its name/content or delete it completely. Of course, you can add the same game to several different folders.

The process seems simple, but it actually comes with a few painful limitations. For example, there are no filters to quickly navigate through the collection. So the more games you have, the more cumbersome it can become to create a folder.

Sony specifies that up to 15 game lists can be created, each containing 100 games. Numerama can confirm these two figures: it is impossible to go beyond. “Any game found in the ‘Your Collection’ tab in your game library can be added to the game list, whether it’s on disc, digital or streaming,” the Japanese company clarifies.
