Surely Remedy arnt completely innocent in this? They have the power to stand up to such practices.
Also for those that said about cost. It costs very, very little for such patches. I think Mark Cerny said it's less than 2% of your entire development cost. A free PS5 patch would bring in extra money by enticing gamers who were on the fence about the game who are seeing friends replay it/plus the PS5 store entry etc.
Dependant on their contractual agreement with the publisher their hands are most likely tied and they can't say or do anything.
It's a shame because Remedy themselves have usually been pretty good with stuff like this. Previously they've given away Alan wake for free on certain storefronts when it was being delisted.
