PlayStation Plus subscribers with a PlayStation 5 are finally get their hands on a freebie that they've been waiting for ages. Unfortunately, the new-gen console's ridiculously convoluted and messy upgrade system has managed to throw a spanner in the works for a very unlucky few.
Back in June, Square Enix released a shiny new-gen version of Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStation 5 as a free upgrade for anyone who had previously purchased the game on on PlayStation 4.The caveat was that those who had claimed the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake as a PlayStation Plus freebie in March were not eligible for the new-gen upgrade.
People were less than thrilled about that catch, so it was a welcome bit of news when it was confirmed earlier this week that PS Plus subscribers would finally be able to make the upgrade at no extra cost.
Alas, PlayStation has managed to screw up this upgrade. Anyone who previously upgraded the physical edition of Final Fantasy VII Remake will be unable to switch to and upgrade the digital PS Plus version, as the PS5 will demand a disc be inserted before the upgrade can begin.
While it's not an issue that will even affect that many people, it's still a damning indictment of the new-gen console's completely borked upgrade system. It's a bit of a kick in the teeth for anyone who might have sold their physical copy of the game but still has it in their library thanks to PS Plus, for example.
Basically, the PlayStation 5 really needs to sort its approach to upgrades out.
