So typical of money-grabbin Ubisoft! Oh, wait, this is actually good. Am just not used to Ubisoft doing anything that will not end up in players paying more to play a game. My bad! Good job, Ubisoft!

I don't know why this is even news. It is sad that this needs to be news. All it tells me is that some publishers are consumer friendly and other are money milkers.

There is no justification to charge gamers for two generations of games when the publisher ships games on two generations of consoles. This is a blatant cash grab and every gamer that falls for it, is supporting a bad practice.

Some publishers have been really good about this (Ubisoft) and others have been horrible and inconsistent.

Furthermore, games have been developed on PC for a long time supporting multiple capability devices. You don't buy a game for an Intel i3 packed with a cheap intel graphics card, and then have to re-pay to buy the game again when you buy and Intel i7 with some super 4k graphics card. Why is it any different on console? Console publishers that charge you twice are ripping you off, their PC versions don't require a second version.

Well isn't that charitable of them?

Fortunately it seems only Activision and Sony do this as of now. Oh and 505…

I couldnt remember if they did. I guess probably for their sports games. I know not for all of them because the recent star wars titles got free upgrades in my library.

Upone the ps5 release they allowed you to upgrade PS4 version of FIFA 2021 to ps5. This year if you want the upgrade you need to buy the £90 ultimate edition.

Yeah they just have a AU$160 version of their game.
