Analysis: a double-edged thing
For all those who redeemed Final Fantasy 7 Remake when it was available on PS Plus, the news that they can now upgrade to the PS5 version will be most welcome. Whether or not you’ve managed to get your hands on a PS5 yet, knowing that you’ll get the best possible version of the game (for free) on the latest Sony hardware is truly a great early Christmas gift.
But for others, the sudden change with an upgrade for PS Plus subscribers may be less fun, as some players have already purchased Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade on PS5 (costing SEK 649), following news that they won’t be able to upgrade the PS Plus versions. , while those who have redeemed the game on PS Plus can now upgrade to the PS5 version for free and then click Yuffie DLC for 25% off (which usually costs around SEK 200).
So while it’s ultimately nice that Square Enix has changed, we can’t help but feel it could have been delivered better and sooner, which would have saved some fans from spending money on an upgrade they could have gotten. them for free.
