How To Upgrade Your PS4 Games To Attractive PS5 Versions For Free

How To Upgrade Your PS4 Games To Attractive PS5 Versions For Free – Do you know you can play most PlayStation 4 games on the PlayStation 5 all credit to the new sony console’s backward compatibility feature, but some publishers are letting you upgrade PS4 games to the PS5 versions for Free? This will let you play many of them with 4k dynamic resolution at 60 frames per second and delivers smaller loading times, making for a better gaming experience.

The major game getting such an update is last year’s final Fantasy 7 Remake, as shown during last week’s state of play Livestream. It will be coming out on June 10 along with an expansion featuring awesome ninja Yuffie Kisaragi.

The PS5 is available now but has been going in and out of stock at retailers. The digital-only model costs $400, and the one with a disc drive is $500.

How To Upgrade Your PS4 Games To Attractive PS5 Versions For Free

If you opted for the digital-only PS5 and have a disc, you’re out of luck. There are a few more limitations and caveats:

  • Some PS5 versions of current PS4 games aren’t out yet.
  • Next-gen versions will be bigger files, so they’ll take up more precious hard drive space.
  • You’ll end up with a fresh list of trophies (each version’s list is separate).
  • A few games’ saves won’t transfer.
  • Some game upgrades are available only in cross-gen bundles or special editions.
