Critically-acclaimed RPG action, intriguing puzzles, tense sci-fi survival and PS VR combat await on March 2.
“Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.” Well that sucks.
No. Square Enix likely said "We'll put it on PS+ but we're not letting you upgrade it." It's the type of thing they would do. You're still getting an amazing game.
It really is an awesome game.
Look, Final Fantasy VII is an awesome premium game so it's great to have it included with PS Plus in March (I haven't finished it yet but plan to now.) Square Enix want to maximise sales. Yes, it is shortsighted of Square Enix to not allow an upgrade because I don't think people who never bought it, then get it free will go on to buy the PS5 edition. However, there definitely would be a percentage of people who enjoyed FF7R as part of PS Plus who would have gone on to buy the new DLC. But I understand they just want to give this version to the people who paid for the game. Also, a VR game included, about time! That underlines Sony's commitment to the platform.
@VenomUK I agree. It's just super unfortunate that in order to play the DLC. You'll still have to buy the PS5 version of the game and then buy the DLC.
I know I will get a lot of flak for this but I've never once played FF7. FF8 and 9... sure, but not 7. Having recently rejoined + so this will be my first time. Farpoint is one I want to play as well. I dont have the aim controller but it says I can play with the DS4. Am I missing out on not using the aim?
@darth I think you are. The Aim controller is great, and that game was built to showcase it. (Always had a soft spot for FF8 btw.)
@darth: Why'd you skip 7?
@LostinthePanic One suggestion I read is that Square Enix may offer a paid upgrade route. But honestly, I will continue playing it next week.
I mean it still sucks. The explanation for the sucking doesn't really change the fact that it sucks.
^ @darthv27, as above, I'd definitely recommend playing with the Aim controller. Even borrow one or grab a second hand one if you must, but it's a game changer for Farpoint. Also be sure to try the challenge, PVP and co-op modes - they're all pretty special.
@jin I like how hard you try to downplay and find something negative out of something so awesome like this. This is fantastic! I was just about to get it on my ps4 so it's much appreciated by me at least!
PS Plus free games has lately been good again. They have been garbage for 2 years.
@VenomUK Sony already shown there commitment to VR by announcing VR2 releasing in 2022
I mean they need to make money for their product.
“I mean they need to make money for their product.“ We pay for PS Plus do we not? I’m sure the developers get paid for putting there games on the service.
But Sony is paying them money to put it on Plus. That's what they always do.
How much do you pay for PS+? Let's be real here. This is a AAA game being put on PS+ a year from initial release. That PS+ sub is being stretched across other monthly releases and discounts. Don't let GP fool you. That's being subsidized to attract subscribers for what Xbox is hoping becomes a sustainable, primary business model for them.
Would I still be able to use the same save file though?
yes, it was confirmed in the announcement for the ps5 version.
It's a AAA game less than a year old, so just getting the PS4 version is pretty amazing.
Well what do you know...im glad i waited out on ff7..yeehaawww! I dont mind paying a small amount for an upgrade. Just got the full game for free anyway.
You can't upgrade the PS+ version of the game thou
Why would anyone dislike this comment? You don’t want a free upgrade? You want to pay more? What’s wrong with people smh
I wanted to play this but didn't want to spend any money on it so now I have the chance. I don't really care that the upgrade isn't included, but after recently had Control Ultimate Edition on for PS+ it does seem a bit of an odd decision by Square.
Excellent VR game this month I love far point if you haven’t play it yet get the light gun VR controller it makes it more immersive and satisfying than using a dual shock.
Amazing lineup. Sony been killing it with PS+ especially since the PS5 launched. Just amazing value all around
And the fact that they've been giving away actual next gen games as well vs. the competition is a big differentiator. Also nice to see they're still throwing a bone to the VR customers.
@twins Someone’s mad. You do understand the equivalent of PS Plus is GWG right? Which sucks. The same service MS were trying to increase the price without justifying the increase until people made them have to do a 180...
@TwinsUltra64 have all you want with that "service" but I know one thing you dont have.... FF7 REMAKE
@twins, maybe PS players laugh every month when i see what you get for your $5/month with your XBL GoldPlate service. And maybe MS laughs when ppl pay $180/year to them and think they're getting the best value in gaming. Seems like there may be enough laughing to go around.
@TwinsUltra64 Youre literally boasting that you're able to play xbox games from generations ago. No one cares about playing old library of games. Maybe some people do but seems silly to call that "content", its literally just old games.
Far and away one of, if not the best months ever. Had an eye on Remnant for a long time so it's the perfect month for me personally.
Remnant rocks! Souls type game with guns. Tad bit easier but definitely has some tough bosses. Enjoy!
The lineup of games available to PS+ members who have been subscribed the past couple of years is very impressive. https://playstation.fandom....
Objectively, this is one of the best months of PSN Plus, and personally this might be the BEST month for me. I've had FF remake and Remnant have been at the top of my 'too buy' list for a while now. So happy.
Can't believe people are complaining that you don't get a free upgrade to the ps5 version of final fantasy. People will literally complain about anything, the fact that it's only a year old game and we are getting it on plus is good enough for me.
Not even a year old actually. Getting a big game for free this soon was likely to have some kind of drawback. People need to understand that.
I don't think the free upgrade is really the issue. It's that you can't even pay for the upgrade on this version.
Then buy the game? Chances are they'll still let you buy FF7 Remake on PS4 digitally even if you claim this much like they do every PS+ game. Then you can get your upgrade.
I did buy the game, New, At launch. I then sold it last summer. I dont care to play it again anyway. If they had have allowed the upgrade to the plus game I might have paid for the DLC chapter but meh no loss for me. I'll take Remnant and be happy
Oh right, I didn't know that, that is a bit of a stupid move to be fair because I'm sure there would have been quite a few people who got it on plus who would have paid for the upgrade. Thank for the info.
I want to play the 60fps PS5 version and I'm really not sure if it's a good idea to add this to my library. I've checked and most of my PS Plus games can't be purchased after going to "View Product" - so adding this to my library will probably make the process of buying the cheaper PS4 version (to get the PS5 version) a pain, or even force me to buy it on another account (perhaps without a PS Plus discount). They're listing the PS5 version as €80 (crazy) so I doubt they'll put the PS4 version on sale again for a while to stop new players from getting it cheaper (free upgrade) as well. Sigh. I should have bought it for €35. An upgrade path would be appreciated.
PS plus is king vs Xbox live gold Gamepass is king vs PS now And don't forget there is even a Nintendo online subscription. But for what :D you get almost nothing, that's Nintendo :)
Well its pretty hard to enjoy xbox games if you can't sign in
To be fair I've played alot of games on psnow months before they got put on gamepass like doom eternal, control, Wolfenstein games just to name a few they get alot of the same games it's just if psnow gets a games it's swept under a rug 6 months later gamepass gets same game it's greatest thing ever
Psplus is better than gamepass and much cheaper. It destroys Xbox gold in every way so I don’t really wanna compare it to that.
It's funny how they talk about gp but never about the games. It's like mantra gp gp gp! 😂
Holy crap! What an amazing selection. This is far beyond putting games with gold to shame. This month alone is better than 3 months worth of games with gold lol.
Please give Remnant from the Ashes a go. I found it to be amazing.
Remnant was an excellent game!
Shieet Sony’s coming out swinging
OOF this is awesome. Almost bought Remnant yesterday on PC lol
I think of this FFVII PS4 version for PSplus as full taster if I ended up like it then I can buy the expanded enhanced PS5 version later on. This is awesome for me since I still have yet to buy and play the game,time to dust off my PS4 and try FFVII Remake for free. I'll make sure I get those PSVR stuff as well I've itching to try VR for ages now,maybe after I purchased PS5 this way I will have something to play with VR headset.
Farpoint is a fantastic game, however, it's much better if you have the Aim controller as well. That's what it was mainly built around. Same as Firewall Zero Hour. Also VR on ps5, even when playing ps4 versions (NMS especially) are hugely improved. Much closer to TV visuals. It reminded me of Starship Troopers a lot lol
Look at the response Control Ultimate got when right after it was on sale they put it on PS+ with the free 5 upgrade.
That's awesome Final Fantasy 7 Remake is one of the games. I'm going to have to look into Maquette, not sure what that is.
Just bought ff7r last month. Haven't had a chance to play. Guess I'll keep my copy sealed then lol
I was just about to say NOOO I just bought it last week, but sweet I'll get the upgrade.
I'm so glad Marquette is coming to ps+, I was going to buy it.
I was keeping an eye on it too. I played Superliminal about a fortnight ago and enjoyed it. This looks similar
Nothing for me this month. FFVIIR was good for one playthrough, but it had a lot of filler imo, and is not the type of game I will ever play again unless they remaster it and remove a bunch of that filler.
Fans of the game played it at least twice just like me. The game was a success despite the little negativity some people had.
That's fair. I'm not gonna argue with that. I still gave it a 9/10 iirc, and I loved the battle system. I think the original FFVII is still my goat. VIIR just isn't one I think I would enjoy replaying, at least so quickly, imo.
The original are better, this is just repetitive with pretty graphic.
Why wasn't this announced during the state of play? It's like they intentionally wanted it to be underwhelming.
I dont understand if you add it to your collection then but dont download it then can you still get the free upgrade with the disc version ?
This is awesome CBR had an article yesterday saying that a leak said Final Fantasy 7 would be one of the free games, and this morning I find out it was true. A friend who was trying to convince me to get the game when it first released was upset I didn't get it. Only to admit yesterday that he didn't much like thr remake, but didn't give a reason. Now I get thr game for "free". I was also speaking to my cousin a few weeks ago about Remnant: From The Ashes and saying how I would like us to get that game to play together, and now its "free, free free, free free free". I already owned Farpoint from day one with the Aim controller. What a good game and I'm actually surprised that there wasn't a sequel announced. I dont know the PS5 game, never hear of it, but it will be added to my library to await the day I finally get my grubby mitts on a PS5 system.
Oh that is great I really wanted to play FFVII bit never got around to it
