What a f&$king rip off, that’s a shitty move by Remedy.

I have the freaking digital copy of the game, so I have to buy two digital copies of the same game, just to receive the next gen update?!?!?

I’ll pass.....I wait until 3 years with this is $10 on Steam.

This is very upsetting being someone who bought the game, and the season pass. I paid MORE than people buying this Ultimate Edition and I don't get the upgrade? Rubbish...

Neezaam40d ago

Exact same boat, paid full price for the game and DLC. It's a matter of giving the support back to the community who supported them. For me personally I bought the DLC a year ago and the second part is only releasing at the end of this month. My money was gone long ago. So what's annoying I guess is that they making me feel the fool.

I bought it two days ago, and started the download about an hour before the announcement (so I'm not even eligible for a refund). Haven't even played it yet!

Typical example of nonsense reply

Yeah, but it’s true tho...

How so?
Alan Wake was night and day by comparison when the PC version released.

I own Control on PC, but downloaded it on PS4 when it was offered for free. Even on my Pro, there's a solid difference in the visuals had.

Can you play 4k/60 frames sec on PC?
Yes? then there you go you already have the next-gen upgrade.
And for the info, the next-gen upgrade is for console only I wonder why?

GameZenith40d ago

Why are you being downvoted? It is essentially the truth?

RaidenBlack41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

So what happens if I pop in the regular edition disc on a PS5/XSX ?

Relientk7741d ago

The console will shoot the disc out and hit you right in the face.

RaidenBlack41d ago

.... and I used to think the omnipresent Xbox One Kinect was scary ...

UltraNova40d ago

Nuh, it will shoot out a receipt for the Ultimate edition balance "Should you wish to access the enhanced version please pay the amount of..."

Oh Remedy what have you become...

it'll probably run on ps4/x1 graphics and not the prettier ps5/xbsx versions

KyRo40d ago

It will just play the PS4 or Xbox One version, the same as any other game without any of the enhancements the upgraded PS5 or XsX will bring I'm assuming.

Hopefully Remedy will change their stance on this.

Magic_Spatula40d ago

Is it a 505 Games decision cuz they published the game or is it solely a Remedy decision? Either way, it's fucked up for those who bought it and the DLC.

Sgt_Slaughter40d ago

Oh boy that would explain a lot if it was a 505 Games decision.

ziggurcat40d ago

With enough backlash, probably.
