It's no surprise that PlayStation typically treats PS Plus subscribers better than those who aren't subscribed to the online service. The former are paying a monthly fee, after all. The free games, exclusive discounts, online multiplayer access and other bonuses are what they get in exchange for that payment. That's how the world works.
But in a major plot twist, a number of PlayStation Plus subscribers have been left snubbed by a recent next-gen freebie. The open-world action RPG Greedfall is available on new-gen consoles today, and will be a completely free upgrade for anyone who purchased the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. However, any PlayStation Plus subscribers who claimed Greedfall when it was one of the free games for subscribers back in January will have to pay for the upgrade.
This move has, somewhat inevitably, raised eyebrows and drawn a lot of criticism from PS Plus subscribers, who are especially annoyed at the fact that Greedfall is on Xbox Game Pass and subscribers over there will get the new-gen upgrade for free.
I suppose if PlayStation Plus subscribers really don't want to pay for the PS5 upgrade, they'll just have to wait a couple of years and hope the new-gen version of Greedfall makes its way back onto the service as one of the monthly freebies.
