The Hogwarts Legacy PlayStation Exclusive quest is a special mission you can only get in the PS5 version of Hogwarts Legacy. The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop is exclusive to playstation but you could easily miss it as there's little to direct you towards it. Which is a shame, as it's easily one of the best missions in the whole game. Despite that it's a strangely placed mission that's tucked away, and only accessible quite a way into the main story. 

The mission sees you take ownership of a shop in Hogsmeade, only to find out it's haunted by a particularly mean poltergeist. Cue creepy mannequins and one of the most magic-infused Hogwarts Legacy quests of the entire game. Sorry Xbox and PC players.

You won't get access to the Hogwarts Legacy PlayStation Exclusive quest until after you've finished the second trial - Charles Rookwood's Trial.

After this, you can head to Hogsmeade and look out for a mission marker here:

The mission itself is called "Minding Your Own Business". It starts will speaking to a house elf called Poppy who's sweeping outside an abandoned shop. The mission will lure you in under the guise of running your own Hogsmeade shop, with the option to sell your wares from potions to ingredients. 

However, once you've bought the shop from Cassandra Mason for a mere 1,500 coins, you'll be asked to retrieve some items for her from a chest. Thus, chaos ensues. 

After the quest, you'll gain your own shop where you can sell your gear and items. According to Avalanche your own shop will offer you "better rates than anywhere else". 

You'll also get the pretty badass Shopkeeper's Cosmetic Sets, which you can see below and consists of a hat, coat, and outfit.

The release of Hogwarts Legacy has been the subject of criticism and debate due to J.K. Rowling’s public stance on gender identity, which continues to challenge the inclusivity at the heart of the Harry Potter community. Here is our explainer on the Hogwarts Legacy controversy (opens in new tab).
