"For players looking to have access to both the PS4 & PS5 versions of Horizon Forbidden West, please purchase the Digital Deluxe, Collector’s, or Regalla Editions. Dual entitlement does not apply to the standard and Special Editions"

ID: hbbsiaw

That’s some absolute bullshit

ID: hbbsz1t

This is so convoluted and sneaky I doubt many will comprehend how shady this is. I hope the mods on both main subs allow a post to exist that explains this really well

They did exactly what they did last year again.

Last year, immediately following the PlayStation summer showcase, they opened pre-orders for PS5 effectively straight away. Whilst that happened, they quietly announced via Geoff Keighley’s Twitter that Horizon Forbidden West and Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales were PS4+PS5, and announced the price hike for next-gen games in an article.

Here, they’re opening pre-orders for Horizon Forbidden West, and announcing a lack of an upgrade path between PS4 and PS5, on the same day as the showcase announcement, knowing that more people would talk about the announcement and be hyped enough for it that, if they did hear the upgrade announcement, they wouldn’t care.

Really sneaky of them to announce the showcase the exact same day as the Horizon preorders went live. Now most fans and media outlets are focused on the presentation and are letting slip the terrible preorder strategy they're using for this game.

How anti-consumer smh Sony

That's so dumb, I just wanted a physical PS5 disk.

Screw me, I guess!

ID: hbbxswi

The whole pre-order thing is a bit confusion, but it looks like you can order the PS5 disk versions here:

ID: hbc0zed

You can get a physical PS5 disc, it just doesn't come with a PS4 version... like any other PS5 disc.

ID: hbbv26s

Bunch of BS. Sony has been on record saying the Horizon Forbidden West will get a free upgrade.

I don’t think that is the case for new games… just for cross system launch titles. Maybe I’m remembering it wrong so don’t quote me…

Pre order a digital edition must be… not sure what the word is. Weird? Crazy?

6 : Anonymous2021/09/02 15:02 ID: hbbnr21

Wait, does standard edition have photo mode because it says "unlocks" only in Deluxe, is it like early unlock or will standard edition dont have it?

ID: hbbttcu

My guess would be extra unlocks within photo mode, I’m thinking frames, filters, stickers. That sorta random shit.

Wait I found it here:

Photo Mode unlocks (special pose and face paint)

So I was way off.

Ok thanks

What happened to the free PS5 upgrade?

Guys, never pre order, it’s not worth it , we have seen very little gameplay, play it safe and don’t waste your hard earned money.

ID: hbbn5ct

Even if the game is perfect, it's essentially just giving Sony an interest free loan for five months, for digital versions anyway.

ID: hbcg47d

Pre-ordering through Sony directly puts an 8 day hold on your card but doesn’t actually collect payment until it ships, so it’s kind of just indicating interest/securing the limited edition versions.

ID: hbblsl5

I’ve never been burned by a pre-order. I guess I just know how to pick em. This looks safe but I always pre-order the day before when the pre-load is live.

ID: hbcbtyf

In all seriousness, I don't understand why people pre-order games. Is it just because they're excited? It makes no sense to me.

ID: hbbuuzd

Game is not even out for a few more months anyway. Don’t even buy it until pre load is enabled

ID: hbbkl87

Eh. I' haven't been burned yet. Keep it to series that you really, really enjoy the gameplay of and you'll be fine.

ID: hbbmgvy

If it were a PS5 only game i would have already put my pre-order in but they decision to make it a PS4 game too really tempered my excitement, i'll grab it after it releases.

ID: hbbvxtt

Don’t worry I’m not preordering a PS4 game in 2021.

9 : Anonymous2021/09/02 16:18 ID: hbbyvlb

Why would anyone in their right mind pre-order digital so far in advance/at all?

In cases where you want pre-order exclusive stuff, do it the day(s) before it releases, after people have reviewed it etc. Still get the stuff. They aren't going to run out.

Physical, fair enough, but even then... not this far in advance.

Also locking photomode filters behind certain version, fuck off.

Sony - For the Players....wallets

ID: hbdiohi

Locking photo mode filters behind pre orders, no free ps4 to ps5 upgrade path, digital only collector's editions, and trying to smokescreen the announcement with the announcement of the playstation event. Unfettered greed through and through.

I truly hope that nobody in the world pre orders this shit, because Sony should be better than this.

Has Cyberpunk taught us nothing? Wait people just wait

Is the steel book exclusive to pre order on PlayStation store?

12 : Anonymous2021/09/02 15:46 ID: hbbu4us

I wish I could just have the ps5 version and not the “cross gen version”

13 : Anonymous2021/09/02 17:25 ID: hbc94zl

2022 is so stacked with games.

14 : Anonymous2021/09/02 19:16 ID: hbcpv60

Annnnnd no!

Pre order a digital game? Yeah sure

16 : Anonymous2021/09/02 14:19 ID: hbbhn85

I don’t see collectors editions though???

ID: hbblk25

Collector’s editions aren’t digital..

ID: hbbq63q

Unfortunately this time they are you have to go to Playstation direct to pre-order them and they come with a steelbook case display and a digital code no disk

17 : Anonymous2021/09/02 17:58 ID: hbce5ci

No thanks, I'll wait until it hits $40 on the used market, or goes for a max of $50 on a digital grey-market site.

This is what I give when a company tries shitting around with their greedy cross-gen pricing ideas.

18 : Anonymous2021/09/02 14:26 ID: hbbiqzv

This is weird, pre-order is up on PlayStation Store Canada, but there are no pre-orders up for it online elsewhere (physical).

19 : Anonymous2021/09/02 16:09 ID: hbbxk8j

Off topic, but I've read that the first game gets alot better after a while, that there's a very long "intro" before it kicks off. When exactly does it kick off? I got out of the first tribe area after the attack of that big mechosaurus and did some quests outside of there, but I was so bored that I quit an hour or two after. Does it get better? Worth another go?

ID: hbc1zkj

Story gets better. Open world is boring
