I also want to confirm today that in the future, PlayStation-exclusive cross-gen titles (recently released on PS4 and PS5) – both digital and physical* – will offer a $10 digital upgrade option from PS4 to PS5. This will apply to the upcoming God of War and Gran Turismo 7, and to any other PS4 and PS5 exclusive cross-generation titles published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
