I'm surprised they made it this far without dying. I suspect Stadia is the next gaming entity to run out their short life expectancy.

I was worried for abit that owners of the digital version of FF7r would not get the upgrade... It did not sound right.. I think I read the article to fast... It was owners of the physical copy who have digital editions of The PS5 are outta luck.

I wanted to like this Outriders demo, but it's crashed on me twice without saving my progress. I think I'm done playing the first part of the prologue at this point.

PS+ March:
•Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4)*
•Remnant: From the Ashes (PS4)
•Maquette (PS5)
•Farpoint (PSVR)

https://bit.ly/3pV2dgg

*FFVII Remake for PS+ is not eligible for free PS5 upgrade

Hmm, it almost sounds like if you own it digitally already, and it's not the PS+ version you will get the upgrade? that's how it's worded.

Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.

Actually no, that doesn't even talk about the upgrade other than saying it is a thing. That "article" is only really talking about what happened in the trailer and the new DLC. Not the upgrade.

I wonder if the PS+ version is a different SKU so they can let digital owners who bought it get the upgrade. Or if they are just going to fudge over digital owners. I can understand them not wanting to give the upgrade for the free version so people buy the game. But not giving to those that actually bought the game is kind of bullcrap since disc users get it.

My understanding is that digital owners of the paid version will get the upgrade. Only PS+ copies are ineligible.

I think the game is just bad overall. I didn't have any crashing issues on XS. I also didn't realize the demo dropped for PS5 as well. The article I read for it said it was only XS right now. So that is why I downloaded it there, lol.

Wow. That's an incredible month for PS+. I already have FF VII Remake, Remnant: From the Ashes, and Farpoint, but the first two are very good, and Farpoint is one of my favorite VR games.

From the "article":

Square made the announcement as part of today's State of Play Sony event. The new PS5 version, called Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, is coming out on June 10. If you already own the PS4 version, you'll be able to upgrade to the PS5 update for free. Save data will carry over. The new episode, however, will be "available for purchase after upgrading to the PlayStation 5 version," which makes it sound like it will not be free or available to PS4 users.

I don't really mind that you don't think the article is a source of legitimate journalism but I think it very clearly states how it is going to be handled with the information that is currently known. Sorry you glazed over that part.

Nope. I tried my local Best Buy and Walmart yesterday and there's signs up saying "Due to high demand this product is not sold in stores. Check our app or website for availability." 😑 They're probably afraid of riots. The closest I've gotten is Target for an in store pick up on their app but I haven't been quick enough when it pops up to complete the checkout before they disappear.

This is exactly what I will do, my PS4 is a base and I'm sure the PS5 will play them 100% better. And of course Demon's Souls at some point

Astro's Playroom is a great short-game / tech demo for the DualSense. And you can delete it once you're done with free up space. Only took me 1-2 days to 100% it.

Yes, its exactly like the game that came preloaded on PS4. It gets added to your library the first time you login. So you can download it when ever.

Playroom, that is what the PS4 game was.

Yeah you can re-download it. It's only ~11GB. What I find annoying is that it remains on the "Installed" Games tab in the PS5 dashboard, even after you delete it.

You can download your ps+ cloud saves for PS4 on to ps5- to be used on PS4 titles. Most games have an in game menu to upload to xfer data between 4 and 5.

If you don't have PS+ you should be able to put game saves on a USB from the PS4, and then copy them from that to the PS5.

I've used a usb to move files from PS4 to 5. The interface on ps5 basically treats the PS4 and ps5 saves as separate system- it's pretty much just like PS4 when you choose that.

Apparently some PS4 demos don't work since the developers didn't "rework" them to be playable on PS5. For example, The Adventures of Captain Spirit from Life is Strange 2 is not playable on PS5.
