Sony posted this week first information about the editions of Horizon Forbidden West out. However, the players did not only have enthusiasm.

For it became clear that buyers who first want to play the PS4 version of Horizon Forbidden West or have to play due to the PS5 scarcity, standing in front of a dilemma. An upgrade was not provided . Rather, customers who wanted to use both platform versions should grab the expensive Deluxe edition.

Sony distracts

That the announced procedure is not customer-friendly, apparently also recognized Sony after plenty of protest. In a blog entry, Jim Ryan, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, reported to speak and announced that buyers of Horizon Forbidden West will benefit from an upgrade – even free of charge.

Last year we committed ourselves to deliver free upgrades for our cross-gene launch titles, including Horizon Forbidden West. Although the profound effects of the pandemic have led that Forbidden West can no longer appear in the originally scheduled time window, we stay with our offer: Players buying Horizon Forbidden West for PlayStation 4 can upgrade free to the PlayStation 5-Version , SO RYAN .

Directive for upcoming games

There is also a solution for future cross-games games, but no free one. According to Ryan, for all of the upcoming games, which will appear for both the PS4 and the PS5, an upgrade possibility offered to book with ten euros. This corresponds to the price difference between the two versions, so the players who want to upgrade later to the PS5 version have no disadvantages.

I want to confirm that in the future for PlayStation exclusive cross-gene titles (which appear new for PS4 and PS5) – both digitally and physically – a digital upgrade option from PS4 to PS5 worth 10 USD is offered. This applies to the nearest God of War and Gran Turismo 7 as well as for all other exclusive cross-gene tracks for PS4 and PS5 published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, said Ryan in the wording.

It must be noted that players who buy their PS4 version as a disk version and later acquire the digital edition of the PS5, not benefit from this upgrade possibility because the Digital Edition does not support discs.
