The interesting thing to note. I believe the upgrade isn't tied to PS Plus - so once you claim it I believe it is yours to keep even if the sub stops.

Exactly. I hope everyone sees this

I guess this confirms that the current gen upgrades for games can't be implemented with PS+ games. It's the reason why the developers for Dead by Daylight gave the PS5 version away unconditionally to PS4 owners and it's not tied to an active PS+ subscription.

This also explains why we didn't get the PS5 upgrade for Greedfall or FFVII Remake because they would basically have to give away the PS5 version for free to PS+ version owners.

Shhhhhhhhhh, they'll notice

Can't see why they'd particularly care given that it's a first party game now that Sony owns Firesprite. Other games have worked similarly in the past where you'd be able to claim the game fully from upgrading the PS+ version. I think there's only a few cases where publishers have stipulated that you can't do that.

Thanks for this. Last time I checked it was £24.99.

I thought this was VR only. nice

ID: hjfv3yl

It was, originally, they added a Flat/PS5 upgrade later. So good in VR though, recommended if you have a headset

ID: hjfvpe6

that's pretty cool, thanks

ID: hjf7nj0

Same. I was really confused for a second, since PS5-native games don’t support PSVR.

Is this game any good without VR?

ID: hjf02lr

That's what I wanna know too.

ID: hjfv157

same.curious about it,I’ll def download if it’s good

ID: hjgc7r2

I enjoyed playing it flat. It's great in VR but sometimes I just want to lie on the couch without a helmet on. Perfectly satisfactory imo.

Nice, Greedfall should have done the same.

ID: hjfox8t

FFVII Remake too

ID: hjg9smf

even a paid upgrade for FF7R PS+ would be better than the bullshit full lock-out they're doing. Can't buy digital PS4 edition, must buy on disc or PS5. Idiotic.

ID: hjfztgx

That one in particular makes me furious

ID: hjgobn6

And Control... What a dick move everything around that ultimate edition was.

Thanks for this. Would've never noticed it otherwise. Will try it out sometime soon

Thank you, kind sir.

For those wondering how this game plays without VR, just know that even in VR it uses the controller. So really the headset was only used for looking around.

Could anyone drop a link? I can’t find it in the store

ID: hjeyt0a

US Link:

When I originally went through and added the PS+ stuff to my library, this showed as $25 or so. Now it just had an "Add to Library" button.

ID: hjel2e9

Ahh thanks it’s listed as a different version

Looking at you, Final Fantasy VII Remake.

ID: hjfy6uc

and Greedfall.

This game, Moss ans astrobots are my first PSVR experience and it was one of the best Rogue-Like i've play since a long time. If that version came to PSVR 2, that would be the dream.

13 : Anonymous2021/11/05 11:42 ID: hjej0sk

Heck yeah! I do have to wonder how many people won't get the upgrade because they didn't realize it was announced later though. Not that I think it was scummy or underhanded, I just don't like how that was done.

ID: hjf3chr

I was just wondering why it wasn't on the main oa plus screen when I was checking the monthly games. I just happened to check on the vr games and saw it on that screen. Was confused why it was there but went ahead and grabbed it anyways.

Ooo nice. I was wondering if it was another Ps plus non upgradeable game. Great to see this. Thanks. Op

15 : Anonymous2021/11/05 13:52 ID: hjey015

Yay! Thank you developers (or whoever did this), wherever you are!! If I'm not going to play in VR, which I actually could when my setup is better, I'd rather play the PS5 version.

16 : Anonymous2021/11/05 13:30 ID: hjev6c5

Now this is awesome, free ps4 game plus a free upgrade to the PS5 edition! Hell Yeah!

On another note, I have a feeling that the title is gonna have a PSVR2 patch for the Persistence Enhanced close to when it releases.

-2018 the Persistence was originally released for PSVR.
-2020 Released a PS4 playable version
-2021 Released The Persistence Enhanced for PS5
-(2022?) Release PSVR2 version of Persistence Enhanced

Makes sense as they seem to have been willing to work on the game as time has passed, and now being a first-party studio - seems to just line up perfectly.

Keep in mind that the Enhanced version isn't PSVR compatible.

Oh wow ahahahaha. It seems ranting about it worked for me. XD
Best month so far with 4 PS5 games.

ID: hjf5v0q

I only count three PS5 games this month: - The Persistence - Knockout City - First Class Trouble

What game am I missing?

ID: hjf6vvk

That’s it. I think Amular gets an FPS boost on PS5 but could be wrong about that.

Kingdom Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

Told y'all it was a glitch!

22 : Anonymous2021/11/05 14:28 ID: hjf314p

Thank you for sharing. I didn't know it was part of PS plus.

23 : Anonymous2021/11/05 15:24 ID: hjfbi1m

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the PS5 version isn't compatible with VR. So if you plan to play in VR then this might not be too important to you.

Thanks for the heads up 🙂
