Another one using high priced PS5 games as the excuse for the added paywall, and they forget the game they are referring to is a PS4 game.

Okay dude, go spend that extra $10 for free accessories and support the idea. 

IT's not a PS4 game. It's a PS5 game. IT's a PS5 version of the game with features and performance not possible on a PS4. I Don't understand what's so hard to understand about that for you. This is no different from any other generation transitional period. 

And I will spend the extra $10 because I do think it's a great idea to pay an upgrade fee instead of having to re-buy the game from scratch. Free is nice, but it;s not sustainable. This is a great balance/compromise between consumer and developer/publisher needs. 

Again, you're just entitled and feel you should be getting it free because...greed I guess? Again, your arguments are bad. Like, really bad. If you don't wanna pay the upgrade fee, that's fine. Don't bitch at others becuase they happen to see value in it. don't argue 'til you're blue in the face to try and bemoan a perfectly reasonable solution that benefits all parties and is in line with the natual progression of the economy, especially for a luxury item. 

You're not entitled to a PS5 version of a PS4 game free of charge. you are not obligated to pay the fee if you want to play the game on the PS5. The developer has given you options and made both reasonable and affordable, each with their own pros and cons. If you don't wanna upgrade to the PS5 version (Regardless of the Iki island expansion), then don't. The Ps4 versions till has improved frame rates and performance and a bunch of added post-launch content you don't have to pay for. 

IT's increasingly clear you're just here to stir the pot. Other people in this thread, while they have equally bad arguments, at least seem to be coming to terms with the fact that they're outnumbered and not winning. You're just poking and prodding the nest and stirring the pot. simple as that. 

I stopped replying to you a while ago because it was clear you were doing this and had no interest in actually engaging with the arguments being made to counter you, yet here you are. As usual. Don't expect further responses from me. 

Floored argument, GOT is not a PS5 game, the sooner you understand that, the better.

Prices increase gradually, at some point you make a break to a higher price point. This generation is the break.

Game prices in Canada have been going up step wise for a long time cause economy. At PS4 launch the Canadian dollar had parity with the US dollar, by the end of the generation games were CAD 80 instead of CAD 60. Same games, same system, 20 dollars more!!! How dare they ask more money when money loses its value over time.

New PS5 games are now 89.99 here, Ghost of Tsushima ps4 version 79.99, PS5 version 89.99. When the exchange rate goes up and down prices don't follow along immediately either, and get adjusted in 5 dollar increments. I paid CAD 160 for FS2020... (still a bargain for what you get)

PS2 games were $50 in 2000, adjusted for inflation that is currently $78.16
It hit $60 in 2007, PS3 released in 2006 with $60 games
It hit $67 in 2013 at the PS4 release, games stayed at $60
Now it's adjusted to $70, undervalued still

The disease that's spreading (for a long time) is games not being valued anymore. Since cheap digital games, free to pay, early discounts, bundles, ps+ and other rental services people have grown used to getting stuff for little or nothing. A game studios have gone under and now we only have indies and AAA left as only AAA is allowed to ask for 'full' price, while the low indie prices can't support the middle ground. Diversity in big games is getting less as more and more copies have to be sold to make it profitable. If the trend continues we'll be left with GTA, CoD and small indies and a whole bunch of free to pay continuously games.

This isnt about inflation. This is about paying extra for something you should be getting anyway. The game and DLC is not free, infact we are paying top price for an old game, thats fine but why do PS5 owners get scupled? Shouldn't the benefits of the PS5 be built in, shouldn't Sony look after there premium customers?

With your logic, you wont be against future charges like if Sony decide to charge extra, every time a game uses the full capability of the PS5 SSD because it costs money to implement right? 

This $10 charge is the exact same logic except with the controller.
