    I can see someone buying a PS5 digital edition because it's cheaper, or because scalpers bought up all the disc versions, lol.

    Even worse that Sony's too damn stupid to make more PS5s.

    the PlayStation 5 is an artisanal process

    Does this means that anyone who bought digital on launch will get locked from the upgrade?

    Retail copy in this case = purchased digitally/physically, so if you bought it digitally you'd get it just fine.

    Sad. But what if I am getting it through PS+ on PS5?
    "Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade." nail on the coffin from https://blog.playstation.com/2021/0...maquette-remnant-from-the-ashes-and-farpoint/

    I've been meaning to get this game for a while now so this is neat.
    But it's still bullshit how digital copies don't give you the PS5 upgrade later on.
    Like come on Sony/Squeenix.

    The only digital copies that are ineligible for the upgrade are the free ones claimed through PS+. If you bought and paid for the game you can upgrade it to the PS5 version for free.

    Wow, Sony keeps impressing me with their PS Plus offerings, this one takes the cake. I had no intention of playing Final Fantasy VII remake, but how can I not give it a go now?

    I expect PS4 pro to be mainly a HW upgrade, the name already indicate this or it would have been called PS5. For now PS5 work mostly as a HW upgrade too with a better future :)

    I played recent port of FF7 (not FF7R) and the magic (from the memory of the original) wasn't there, I expect FF7R to be vastly better than those port, whether it match or exceed the memory is going to be different for different people. Not reusing asset of the original is by definition a remake and I suppose FF7R is a real remake by that measure.

    No free upgrade is not he same as no upgrade path.

    It straight-up says it's not eligible for upgrade on the Playstation blog, the word "free" isn't used.

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

    They probably calculated that by the time it is ready the bulk of the money is coming from PS5 owner and the income from PS4 owner can't justify the effort. After all despite your anger you are still a customer?

    There is also the possibility the management it totally out of touch with reality and make mistake.

    There are many free games on PC. Twitch and Epic are giving out free game very regularly. PS+ games are not free, you pay subscription fee unless you consider getting your money's worth just being able to play online. I subscribe for the games and almost never play online.

    Didn't they also said VI instead of VII before? Don't give the writer more credit that it deserves. Pay full price is also a upgrade path, unless you really believe they will ban your account from buying the game. I think it won't be full price but only time will tell.

    Thinking from the perspective that many employees are involved there is the "I am not authorized to give this away", "boss didn't reply", "I will decide later" and "they didn't commit to give it away and I want to cover my ass with a disclaimer" possibility.
