Horizon Forbidden West: You can save when buying
After Sony recently announced that there will be no free upgrade from the PS4 to PS5, the company has received properly counterwind from the fans. In the meantime, Sony has considered it differently and the free upgrade promised for the last year. If you already have a PS5 or plan to buy, that’s a good news – You can save money .
While the normal PS4 version costs 69.99 euros, the PS5 version with 79.99 euros suggests. As the PS4 version as planned now includes both versions , you do not need to raise the more expensive PS5 version: 10 euros saved. However, you can set the money to the side.

Sony boss: The end of free upgrades
In the first few months after the release of the PlayStation 5, most publishers offered free upgrades of the PS4 version. This should make the transition to the Next-Gen console easier. That will soon be away , as Sony CEO Jim Ryan announces on the official PlayStation Blog:
In addition, I would like to confirm that in the future for PlayStation-exclusive games that are new for PS4 and PS5 (no matter whether digital or physical), a digital upgrade option from PS4 to PS5 worth 10 US dollars (presumably 10 Euro) is offered. This applies to the next God of War and Gran Turismo 7 as well as for all other exclusive cross-gene titles for PS4 and PS5 published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, says Ryan.
