You need to delete the PS+ version and download the free “Intergrade upgrade for PS4 owners” with the disc in.

I never installed the ps+ version, but will try accessing the upgrade with the play disc in.  Thanks.

You just need the disc in the drive to redeem the free PS5 upgrade. You do not need to delete your PS+ digital version if you have it downloaded.

Though I’m not sure why you’d want both versions on there anyway.

Yeah, eventually it would make sense to delete the PS+ version to free up space.

Hmmm….I wonder if I were to borrow the game from someone and use that to upgrade it, would it then upgrade the Plus edition too so that I wouldn’t need to buy it. Basically at this point it’s like a $60 upgrade for better textures and frame rate.

If you didn't know that the PS+ version of FF7R doesn't upgrade, it's because you haven't read... anything. It was all over everything, from promotional materials, announcements, to the claim pages of the actual PS+ version, etc. It was all there from the very beginning. You've had months to complain about this.

Considering the upgrade you'd be downloading literally says "Disc Version" in the title, I imagine it would look for the disc in the drive every time you attempted to run it.

Yep, it was definitely broadcasted loudly when the PS+ version was released. A lot of people did complain about it. But it is what it is. Only reason I held onto my disc after it came to PS+.

Still worth complaining about it now.

It’s a dick move that Square had months to reconsider but didn’t.

It's still stupid how complicated Sony made it to upgrade to PS5 versions of games, as well as moving saves. You also have to toggle between versions of a game if you have PS4 and Ps5 installed, which can be pretty confusing….

Yeah, the disk version upgrade always requires the disk, even if you have the digital version.  If there is a digital version upgrade of the game that upgrade is different.  Sony has always been kinda weird about that, whereas XBox changes over to not requiring the disk seamlessly if you later purchase the digital version (and there is no real "upgrade process" for the Series X, it just knows hey there is a better free upgraded version for your console, let me get that for you).  I had to fight the PS5 for a while to get my PS4 disk Crash 4 to upgrade and install the PS5 version, but every upgrade I've had on Series X just patches, moves over save files and just works.

No it's not. The free upgrade is for people who buy the game. Claiming it on PS+ is obviously not buying it.

Yeah this whole release is just an unnecessary mess.  It's on both Sony and SE.  It's magnified by the fact that it's a ps5 release that sony really needs.

 

Huge fan of the original FFVII.  But personally just holding out for the pc and/or game pass version for all the extra content.

Square Enix likes being a dick because people pay them more money that way. That's why none of their DQ or FF games really go on sale for much less than 50% at any point and they'll do things like delisting DQXI for the worse looking DQXI S so that that's your only option on the digital storefronts.

Sony shipped these controllers a day earlier where everyone who pre-ordered directly from them will get'em today(or soon) where you all have to be on the lookout for it since they don't give out an email / text with a tracking number especially since most of the delivery drivers will just drop this off at your front door without ringing the doorbell or without a few knocks on the door.

Man, I really hope the Death Stranding Director’s Cut is a free upgrade. I want to restart the game so bad but have been waiting to finally get a PS5.

Also lol at the Metal Gear tease.

Might reinstall the PS4 version and finish it before the PS5 one hits lol

Also, I still believe that game that was announced, Abandoned, is a Kojima game.

Are you talking about this: https://www.eurogame...-collab-rumours

I didn’t even know that was a thing. I missed that stuff entirely.

I was actually talking about Norman Reedus considering the box camo in the new DS trailer.

Yeah, mine just arrived and I was puzzled what it was until I opened it.  The website still says "Preparing to Ship" but I noticed the other day they had already charged my card.  Oddly enough the packing slip on the inside did not list name or pretty much anything else other than the controller.  Not sure if this is how Direct works normally, as I've never ordered anything from there before.

 

I got the "red" one, and I like the color even though the color is probably more magenta than red.

Am I the only one disappointed? Looks like Dark Souls 4 when Sekiro and Bloodborne are superior games.

No offense, but there’s no way to make that assessment with a trailer that short. I see a ton of influences from Sekiro (and a little Bloodborne, but more Sekiro) in the trailer. I’m just glad it still has the vibe of a souls game and didn’t lean hard into a fantasy setting or end up looking like an off brand Elder Scrolls or something.

I’m optimistic but want to see more. Definitely day one buy for me though.

I’m so glad I held off playing through the rest of FF 7 Remake before the Intergrade update (had only been on Chapter 5). It feels so much better now. I’ve come to realize that it’s really, really hard to play anything at 30 FPS this gen. So dive in if you’ve got a PS5.

Overwatch is getting cross-play support soon. Seems like you'll need a Battle.net account with your PSN account linked to it to keep playing the game with or without cross-play. No cross-progression support.

Will you be able to play with KB&M on PS4?
