PS5, PS4 versions of some exclusives will be able to be updated for free

All Game News

At the time of the announcement, Sony had indicated that PS5 would be a clear break from the previous generation. In reality, the Japanese giant has slightly revised its policy, adopting a less restrictive and more gradual strategy. In fact, games like Horizon: Forbidden West, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Spider-Man Miles Morales will also come to Playstation 4. By the way, players who purchase launch titles on PS4 will be able to upgrade to PS5 for free. In this way Sony has essentially followed what Microsoft has done which, from the beginning, has always stated that Xbox Series X would support the free upgrade of its titles (the so-called Smart Delivery).

We know the PS4 community will be switching to PS5 at different times and we are happy to announce that PS4 versions of some of our exclusives will be available to upgrade to PS5 for free” These are the words of a statement issued by Jim Ryan on Playstation Blog”PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.”

Sony finally clarifies: PS5 will not be backwards compatible with PS1, PS2 and PS3

For example, buying Spider-Man: Miles Morales digitally for PS4 will allow you to receive the PS5 version for free. Similarly, buying the physical version will allow you to insert the disc on PS5 to upgrade, just like it will with Xbox Series S / X. In short, good news for all those who want to switch to Playstation 5 by giving back the “old” PS4.

Before concluding, we remind you that Sony has formalized the price and release date of the PS5. At the moment, however, pre-orders of the console are sold out, and it seems that the same deliveries will be delayed.
