Could Sony Be Looking to Acquire Konami to Bolster PS5 Offerings?

As you may know by now, a number of PS4 games will have an upgraded PS5 version. It’s not a whole lot of them but if it exists for your games, here’s how you can get the upgrade with ease.

There are two ways to upgrade PS4 games to the PS5 version, and which way you need to use will depend on the game itself. If you have a physical copy of the game and the standard edition of the PlayStation 5 console, here’s what you need to do: 

  1. Sign in to your PSN account on your PS5 console (or create an account).
  2. Insert the eligible PS4 game disc.
  3. Go to the game hub for the PS4 game.
  4. Select the upgrade offer on the game hub and review the upgrade offer.
  5. Select Download or purchase with the discounted price to download / purchase content.
  6. After the download is complete, you can play the PS5 digital game by inserting the PS4 game disc. You will need to keep the disc inserted each time to play the game.

If you have a digital copy of the game, here’s what you need to do to upgrade PS4 games regardless of which PlayStation 5 console you bought:

  1. Sign in to your PSN account on your PS5 console.
  2. Find the PS5 game in PlayStation Store, or by Search, and go to the game hub for the PS5 game.
  3. Select the upgrade offer on the game hub and review the upgrade offer.
  4. Select Download (or purchase with the discount price) to download/purchase content.
  5. After the download is complete, you can play the PS5 game.

It’s worth noting that upgrading PS4 games to the PS5 version isn’t necessarily free. Some of them may require a separate purchase, albeit at a lower price than the full game. Just make sure you know what you’re getting into before doing the upgrade process.

Pokdepinion: I expected the upgrades to be free honestly. That would get people more enticed to move from the PS4 over to the PS5.
