will the upgrade from physical ps4 have the deluxe content?

ID: hdqen33

Yep, looks like you get the digital deluxe version if you upgrade.

ID: hdqdrbv

That's what they said in a blog post a few months ago, so yes.

I barely played Death Stranding but I am more than happy to pay £5 for this.

ID: hdqw7gh

Same here, I bought a bunch of games at launch on PS4 like DS and Ghosts of Tsushima, and now I’m happy to play them with the upgrades

Might advise you go into death stranding kind of expecting something slow and chill. Its not really for everyone anyway but I feel a lot of people expected something a bit more intense or action oriented. Death Stranding's fun isn't "fun", its more immersing yourself in its world alongside a well thought out, satisfying progression of unlocking new gadgets and stuff to make its deliveries easier.

Lemme move to the UK real quick

ID: hdqai59

Won't be saying that when you see the prices for other games in the UK lol

ID: hdqm0mk

So true my man! Lol!

ID: hdr3bqu

Our games are pretty averagely priced no? Australias games seem to be pretty pricey from what ive seen

ID: hdqbem0

We pay more for the base games to begin with.

GT7 (24th anniversary) pre order for example, $89.99 in the US.

£89.99 in the UK (do they know that USD to GBP is not 1:1 ratio?), so that work out to be like $122.78

Becareful of what you wish for.

ID: hdqegfg

$89.99 = £65.87 + 20% VAT = £79

And then it depends where you buy from tbh. You can regularly get new games £10 cheaper if you shop around. H:FW is £70 at game but £60 at simplygames, same difference for Returnal etc

I mean, I wish for universal healthcare. If it means more expensive goods so that every human being in this country can have access, I'll take it.

How will this work , will I have to put the disc in and it will give me an option to upgrade in game or in ps store ?

ID: hdqatsx

The reply to you explain it all BUT the upgrade will only show up in the store at release.

ID: hdqpynn

If its that easy il 100% update for 5r

ID: hdqa1nn

When GoT came out a couple of weeks ago I just clicked on it and it automatically gave me the upgrade price, but I had to stick my disc in to accept it.

Put the disc in, let it install if needed. After you should be able to go to the PS store and find the deluxe edition. When looking at buying options there will probably be a 'free upgrade for PS4 owners" or something like that (probably won't show up unless you have thr game downloaded). That's how it went when I upgraded FF7 remake to the PS5 version.

I can’t wait to play DS with the PS5 upgrade. I bought the game from Best Buy for $20 a month ago, but I never opened it.

ID: hdrg1o6

I bought it back in 2019 and played for about 20 hours. Just stayed in the first area doing all the optional deliveries I could before progressing to the next area. It was so addicting to plan your routes, which equipment to bring, avoid BTs and human enemies, stay clear from the time rain, not to mention the satisfaction of actually managing to deliver a whole lot of stuff without damaging it. The graphics and atmosphere where out of this world!

Had to put it down because I was pretty busy with work and college, but it's probably the most unique game I've ever played. Now that I have much more free time, I'll definitely go back to it on PS5.

ID: hdrh3ia

Reading all of the replies of genuine gameplay stories and not that “it’s just a walking simulator” is making me feel even more excited to play this game.

ID: hdqv7g1

You are in for a treat. That game is def not for everyone, but I freaking absolutely loved it.

ID: hdr6hqu

It's also just a super relaxing game. Once I had beaten the game I just spent time finishing deliveries, trying to get max stars at each base. It's a nice zen game.

Not a bad deal for the first stranding type game.

8 : Anonymous2021/09/21 15:34 ID: hdq8yej

Epic pricing

ID: hdswiot

Yep, free next gen upgrades are great, but $5 is more than reasonable for the work they put into the upgrade.

9 : Anonymous2021/09/21 20:22 ID: hdrf593

Holy shit. I got this game second hand for £5. I feel kind of bad getting it upgraded again for so cheap.

10 : Anonymous2021/09/21 23:48 ID: hds6ole

Meanwhile in Canada…

ID: hdsmr7b

Exactly my thought..!

ID: hdu6yna

Did they announce pricing for upgrade in Canada?

Hold up is this from the base ps4 game to the director's cut ps5?

Sweeeeet, just opened my PS4 disk copy yesterday, had it sealed for a long time lol.

ID: hdqd8wl

Duuuuude, you're in for a ride. A relaxing and stressful ride! Lol

ID: hdqfh89

A friend of mine lent me her copy and it was still in the wrapper as well.

Such a great game! 60 hours in, and I just made it to chapter 5

ID: hdqp2a5

You're playing it right. I've seen streamers complete the story in 40+ hours. They miss so much because they just focus on the main missions.

ID: hdrwjhz

Make the main story deliveries on foot. Totally worth it.

I'm sorry to ask a (probably) dumb question, but I own the PS4 standard version and want to ultimately upgrade to the director's cut PS5 version, but saw no upgrade in the PS Store. Is there such thing as a digital only upgrade (own the digital PS4 version and have the digital PS5) or am I mistaken?

ID: hdqrwt1

the upgrade path for digital users (or ps4 owners in general) is currently locked, they have said that once it releases you’ll be able to go to the store and select that 10 dollars option, just don’t do anything right now

ID: hdqs436

Oh I see - I was somehow under the impression it had already released. Thanks much!!

14 : Anonymous2021/09/21 17:21 ID: hdqotqg

Fuck yeah.

15 : Anonymous2021/09/21 19:01 ID: hdr382p

Anyone know how much this will be in Canada?

ID: hdr3hmb

I’m guessing $10

16 : Anonymous2021/09/21 21:46 ID: hdrqy8x

When will this go live? It’s still showing 49.99 on the store

ID: hds3x4o

Release day it looks like.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/21 21:52 ID: hdrrpx1

Does the PS4 save file transfer?

18 : Anonymous2021/09/21 21:08 ID: hdrlmrh

Can people ELI5 why isn't everyone just buying the PS4 disc game and then upgrading for £ 5? That's much cheaper than buying the PS5 disc directly (albeit maybe less neat/elegant?)

ID: hds9yqx

People who want digital

ID: hdse90n

After this news, people in the UK most definitely are.
