The news of the arrival of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on August 20 on PS5 and PS4 came this week, generating a note of discontent in the community for a specific reason.
The action-adventure of Sucker Punch set in feudal Japan has been able to surprise with its cinematic settings and an exciting story.
The title has conquered fans to the point that many are ready to announce a sequel that, according to some unconfirmed rumors, could arrive within the year.
Meanwhile, the box art of the title has changed, and this change has brought with it a surprise that has given way to a series of assumptions relating to the platforms on which the title could arrive in the future.
As we said at the beginning, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will be available on PS4 and PS5, but if we decide to buy it on old-gen consoles and upgrade to on next-gen, we will be forced to pay $ 9.99 (which will probably be converted in € 9.99).
If, on the other hand, we want to switch from the base game for PS4 to the Director’s Cut for PS5, we will need $ 29.99 (also here it will probably be € 29.99).
As a last resort, if we decide to upgrade the PS4 version while remaining on the same console, we will be asked for a fee of $ 19.99
The payment of this “ tax ” destined (in the first case) to a product that the players already own, created a wave of discontent in the community, which poured in mass in the comments section of the Twitter profile of Sucker Punch (via PushSquare ).
The fact that some titles such as Metro Exodus allow a free upgrade has aroused the anger of fans, who in this case would be forced to shell out a figure seen as unnecessary.
Bethesda has also made available an upgrade at no additional cost for Doom Eternal, as it did for Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales at the launch of PS5, and it is therefore understandable that Sony’s choice has made users worry about the future of their favorite products.
You will certainly remember the announcement, which arrived during the Summer Game Fest 2021, of Death Stranding Director’s Cut: it seems that in addition to the game of Hideo Kojima and Ghost of Tsushima, Sony would have in mind to subject other products to the same treatment.
The title of Sucker Punch has received recognition to be proud of, and a few weeks ago Assassin’s Creed Valhalla followed it up by winning a noble task.
The action-adventure was also credited with helping an English player win a televised quiz broadcast in the UK, during which the competitor was asked to answer a question about the Mongol invasion.
