Almost much as your concern relates to this game or just another chance to stir the pot in a Sony thread (interjecting in other people’s conversation with drive-by’s ). Do not think you care much for the game at all, but hey not that it matters that much.
You engaged me. I was happy to leave it alone.

I have you on ignore, another member pointed out the nonsense you were talking, otherwise you do you and buy this great deal 30.00 upgrade.

SmArT DeLiVErY is Marketing.

Surely they won't continue doing it on other games 8f ppl keep defending them.

Perfect, seems like the kind of comments you like in Xbox threads and play victim of the rabid Sony ponies crapping them (“wait for the Sony fans in 3…2..”) …huh?
GIF by Giphy QA

it is not the same, I actually have PlayStation 4 pro, and have actually spend my own money on ghost of Tsushima (and many other Sony exclusives). So now because I also have xbox I cannot critique a game on another console that I also have? I am trying not to shit on games that I have not played/own.


Let’s conveniently leave off how this Director’s Cut adds a completely new island with new quests and enemies too, adding new now realtime cinematics (to also fix the lip sync issue with Japanese), and an expansion of the story mode and the free updates to legends and more they are doing that require no update. This is like a $29 expansion for those that already have the full base game and $9 to upgrade the Director’s Cut to the PS5 edition? I can see the argument about PS4 DC to PS5 DC being free as an upgrade but the native PS5 version is already priced higher and this update price is already half of the difference.
as you said it yourself, if you buy that directors cut on ps4 you still have to pay $9.99 to upgrade it to ps5 version, there is various upgrades paths with various pricing, you know make it simple and accessible “for the players”. It is a shit move by Sony, same with the games price hike at the beginning of this gen. all driven by greed And Sony arrogance.

The graphics improvement alone on PS5 will be worth it bro

Ghost of Tsushima PS4 version have some ugly low ress texture in certain areas
The game looks fine, I’m playing it right now, and 60fps on PS5 makes it feel so much better.
I don’t know how to feel about the upgrade, feels like it’s not needed tbh. And I need more info before I can say if it’s an okay price. How big is the new island? Can I use the saves from the original PS4 release? Is it still 60fps with the upgraded visuals?

You fit in a few of the memes which was good (did not expect for the players to make it but hey… ;)) and by God you should be allowed to criticise other consoles and other games, but maybe then the environment in Xbox threads trying to bait in Sony fans and then trying to run away anyone who is not jubilant and just hopeful and positive would also help (unless in either case people are just trying to throw gasoline on the fire and running away / trying to stir shit).

It is a shit move by Sony, same with the games price hike at the beginning of this gen. all driven by greed And Sony arrogance.

The $9 upgrade fee is then trying to close one of their pricing scheme loopholes… anyways, buy a cheap version of the PS4 base game and then get the expansion (with the PS5 enhancements too) for $29… seems a bit stupid to charge $9 just because the PS4 DC is $59 and the PS5 DC is $69.

They need to have done a very good job in the PS5 specific enhancements (good DualSense implementation, real-time cinematics, etc… are a start… hopefully just a start) to make the $9 update fee make sense. I think bulk of the sales will be the $29.99 update anyways, I think people over estimate how many people are investing on PS4 titles still and would not just wait to get a PS5 at this point and buy the games there.

Sony Greed, “Sony Arrogance” thrown out like this for anything (greed as opposed to the charity others run? Anyways…) feels quite a bit overused as anything that happens is a cal to try to resurrect the Arrogant Sony PS3 meme now.

I believe it is $19.99 for DE on PS4. An additional $9.99 to upgrade to the PS5 version.

It seems like 60 FPS was confirmed but resolution had an asterisk like saying “depend on the mode you choose”. Maybe we will get a native 4K@60 FPS mode and a dynamic 4K@60 FPS mode with updated visuals.

Man, if the gfx are barely updated than it would be a shameless cash grab. Sony's shaky rep under a microscope here.

Am I missing something about the price complaints here? There’s single player DLC included with a whole new island? Am I correct or is that extra?

Original owners need to pay $30 aka 50% original game cost to get the PS5 version which includes the dlc.

they did patch the game for free unlocking a native 4K @ 60 FPS (locked essentially) mode on PS5 that also benefited from improved loading times.
Not native 4k, it uses the same checkerboard tech as the ps4PRO. Actually the only thing they did was unlock the frame rate limiter so the game will reach 60 fps. Aside from 60fps the game is exactly the same as the pa4PRO.

I think I’ll wait to see how much playtime the Iki island entails. If it’s big and has several sidequests it could be worth getting but right now $10 extra just because I bought a PS5 doesn’t look good in relation to the ”base” $19.99.

A 16.5% increase in price (from $60 to $70) is ok.

A 50% increase in price (from $19.99 to $29.99) doesn’t feel justified.

I think it depends on the size of the new island and content there. It’s certainly a cash grab compared to what Hello Games has been doing with No Man’s Sky though, but that goes for the whole industry. If it’s 10 hours extra SP content then I see no issue with this.

I’m trying to think about what MS did with Gears 5. I got the Hivebusters DLC without paying but I’m not sure if it was a Gamepass addition or free expansion.

With these upgrade prices coming im now starting to think we gonna get games like horizon 2, gt and god of war 2 that are on both ps4 and ps5, coming with a different price tag on both and a upgrade option, using the dualsense features and 3d audio and fast loading as a £9.99+ upgrade

I think you’re right, but I think the visual difference between the two is another pretty big factor that will also justify the price tag.

I stand corrected, I knew everything else was the same as PS4 Pro (loading times aside, but not by much)… for some reason I thought its resolution was DRS based and this 4K Native on PS5. It makes me a lot more hopeful about the PS5 update in this case.

Sure, but it is slightly unfair and more about perception than the reality. Everything is $10 higher, the upgrade price being $10 higher makes sense although it may feel odd.

You're wasting your time bro. These guys were never going to play the game if an additional $10 is getting in the way of them playing brand new single player content for one of the most celebrated games from last year.

Just look at how they refuse to acknowledge the free Legends mode last year or free PS5 patch, just so their "arrogant and greedy Sony" narrative sounds more believable.

Some of these comments are even claiming there's no new story content in this new Director's Cut. Like, seriously? You guys really think they're just going to only give us a new open area with nothing to do? These guys are complete clowns lol.

I wouldn't be surprised if they leave the game exactly as is and the only implementation are the controller and lipsync features, in the announcement it does say dynamic 4k, which is what the game is now. We'll see.

That's not the point, their direct competitor is doing the same thing for everything and not charging a dime. You're having to spend more money on what you already own.

If they're going to take on this kind of undertaking with a previously released title they should reward those who already paid for the title. They're the platform holder for christ sakes, don't defend this dumb shit.
Your preaching this to the wrong church….these are the same people that think that gamepass and crossplay is a bad idea

they are like Apple fans lite

I really liked Ghost on PS4, played the game to completion twice and spent nearly 60 additional hours on the multiplayer mode. And I’d still buy the PS5 version when it drops.

it didn’t reinvent the wheel but it didn’t need to. Very refined, well paced game. I loved just existing in that world.

Lol on any other console the upgrade would be free and you could choose to buy the DLC, but here people are gladly rebuying a game they bought at Xmas and getting mad at no free upgrades for Godfall or FF7.

You can't make this shit up.
FF7 got free update to ps5 if you got the base ps4 game.....

Yeah when you see posters like paster and kagey in a Sony thread you know it's going to turn to shit and then they turn around and play the victims in Xbox threads. Their motivations are clear. Better to ignore these trolls.

Most of the people complaining don't even have a PS5 so the DC is $20 for them, totally fair pricing. The standard edition was 9.99 on PS direct last week.

Sony doesn't want my extra $10 which makes me sad. I owe them so much for the great times they've given me since 1990's and great gear in general so I want to compensate for them in every chance possible. :lollipop_crying:

They should open a Patreon account so I can help them as they're missing money from those guys with no PS5/4 here and complaining about the upgrade and DLC.

Sony is finally now realizing to not devalue their games by charging you full price* for minor upgrades. What’s the lowest price that this game has been? How are the fans taking this?

$30 upgrade, can I borrow someone's disk and download the game or would I need to have the disk in all the time to play the PS5 upgrade.
