I would have mentioned that jailbreaking your PS4 or other PS4 hacks may cost you your warranty buy as it has already been six years of the PS4 release, so the statement turns out to be invalid. After having the PS4 for the past six to four years, you might have already played many multiplayer and online games. Now, if you want to access games that you want to play casually, this article will prove to be the one place where you can find it all for you.

Now that the new PS5 has also been released last year on November 12, being the successor of PS4, it comes with new and better features.

Since jailbreaking, the newly released product is more accessible than hacking the old one because the new version comes with bugs that have yet to be identified by the makers. The communities working on hacking the PlayStation always get ready to exploit these. So, if you want a better experience than the older PS4, go to the next version. 

But always keep in mind that this act is considered illegal. IT can lead to you being charged as a criminal as you are not simply modifying but using pirated games.
