Not sure how big of a deal this is because the PS4 version has been around this price for awhile now, but according to the manager at my local GameStop upgrading the PS4 version to PS5 is a HUGE pain that took him 8 hours to figure out. The PS5 version has been pre-ordering for $59.99 up until today, so I think this is a deal. I bought it bc I don’t want the hassle of the upgrade.

If you pre ordered before today you also got a $10 reward certificate, so this isn’t as amazing, but still a decent price.

For $20 I took a chance, at $30 I don’t think I would have.

I paid full price for the Xbox and I was disappointed, I actually really liked the game

When do you get the $10 reward (pre-ordered this and it already shipped)?

I don't know how it could take someone eight hours to figure out how to upgrade.

I got it for PS4 just for the upgrade. Spent $20. The game is pretty mediocre. Like they threw together a bunch of mechanics and said "yeah that works" and shipped it. I liked the first game a lot more.

Yeah, he said he had to upload something to Ubisoft’s servers and do some other stuff. It sounded like work, so I decided I’d just wait for the actual PS5 release. I really have no idea outside of what he told me.

This game is a buggy mess, which would be fine (because the bugs are awesome) but the save bug ruins it. Having to constantly replay missions is a pain in the ass because the game refuses to save at times.

Nah, that's not how any of that works, you literally put the disc in, hit right like twice to 'upgrade' and then it takes you to the PS store and you claim the PS5 version for no extra. It then will download that version.

 

The only confusing thing is that sometimes the system will think you want to copy over and install the PS4 version of a game to play BC, you just have to make sure it doesn't prompt for that, but we've seen that like one total. It takes less than 10 minutes to upgrade a cross gen game.

I think probably what the guy was confused about was uploading a PS4 save and transferring it to PS5

You’re probably right. I didn’t really ask him to elaborate, I was really just trying to decide if I wanted to upgrade a PS4 version or just wait for the PS5 version. He made it sound hard, so I just decided to wait. It’s not like I was going to get to playing it anytime soon anyway, really. Still working on Valhalla

I try to convince myself too that $10 back makes it $20. It doesn't. Credit card still billed at $30 haha. I DID pay $30 and am awaiting $10 reward though. Did so yesterday. Very good deal I think.

Darn. My bestbuy screwed up and they dont have a copy for me to pick up. If I change to pickup at a different store that has it in stock, will that screw up my $10 preorder bonus? Tia!

Lol they also sent me an email saying sorry it’s taking too long so I chose another store that says available today. Well see how it goes. I don’t think it should affect the pre order bonus

I get that, but as someone who makes multiple purchases every week at bestbuy, it is 100% like paying $20 for the game. Sure, it’ll take a week or two, but once that $10 is spent, my net cost for Legion is $20.

Yeah that's true. The $10 reward would just force/entice me to buy another product but yeah if I were buying from them weekly, totally like paying $20 agreed.

Same. I buy something at target at least twice a week and something at Best Buy (will have GCU) at least every couple weeks. 
 

No convincing needed. Target or Best Buy credit is the same as cash to me.

I doubt it because it still kept the same order number for me when I changed stores.
