Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I'm so confused because of the changes they made last year.

Are you guys talking Spider-man on the Playstation Plus Extra tier? Basically if you download any game on that tier (which I don't have) you can't buy it? That seems really asinine. I can understand on the Essentials tier if you pick a free game up you can't buy it (because those you keep as long as your sub is active) but the Extra/Premium tiers?

We're talking about the digital version of MM Ultimate Edition which is $39.99 in the PS Store.
If you have claimed either game via PS Plus Extra or Premium tier, then you can't purchase the Ultimate Edition digitally, which is really stupid. Maybe you can call Sony CS and have them undo your "purchase" of the game so you can buy it.
Maybe there's still a way to buy it on the PS5, as I saw a way to actually purchase games that I've already claimed off PS Plus Monthly Free Games while I was claiming the April free games yesterday. I'm not at home now and can't check myself.

Gotcha. Thanks. PS makes it so weird. Game Pass, even if you have game from it, still lets you buy it. Would have liked that UE.

Like I said, check on the PS5 itself. You might still be able to do it without a call to CS

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

When the store says “promotion ends on 5/16” does that mean the game or trial goes away completely?

Where does it say that? Usually it means that it's an offer that expires.

I downloaded Balan Wonderland. It was free via Premium or whatever. Then I saw red letters, “offer expires 5/16”. Or something like that. Did it for Sonic Frontiers trial as well, I think it said.

I can’t find it now, but it said something like that and figured they were going away based on posts here.

Okay, yes.

That means the game goes away completely, as far as being included with the service. Just like when games leave Game Pass. With PS Plus it will show as "Owned" once you claim it, but it still won't be playable after that date. Unless you actually buy a copy (which in this parti case, I would not recommend).

Well here's another launch day exclusive freebie for PS Plus Extra and Premium. It launches May 16th. And it's....well....different.

i still have access to the full game, so maybe it was just free until then, but not pulled from PS+.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I was playing Horizon Forbidden West, which I got free from PS+. I got a notification that the game was going to expire in 15 minutes. At the end of the 15 minutes, it booted me from the game to the PS5 menu. I relaunched the game, which I've put about 30 hours into, and it's working fine. I checked the game page for it, and there's nothing about it expiring. Kind of weird.

Yeah, that's a bug that's popped up for others (including me). If it doesn't fix itself, renewing the licenses (which is an option under settings) seems to clear it up.

But it really sucks when it boots you out of a game. I had the absolute worst timing of this at the end of Final Fantasy VII Remake. As these games will do, it ends with a gauntlet of boss battles (who go through different "forms" in the battle) which can take quite a bit of time to finish. Got the notification mid fight, and despite my best efforts I couldn't finish in time. I was hoping there was an autosave mid "stage" but no ... when I logged back in I had to replay the whole thing I just wasn't in the mood anymore at that point, and just cranked it down to "easy" so I could get through it and see the final cutscenes (fortunately there wasn't any trophy penalty).

I was in the middle of a multi-stage Far Cry battle well after midnight and knew I had to go to bed, but I didn’t want to lose my progress. But then the game crashed so I gave up and started over the next day.

Nope. It's part of Game Pass. Just like UbiSoft + is part of Playstation Plus Extra. They aren't transferrable.

I imagine the light saber feels great with the force feedback on the Dual Sense. I didn't play the last game on the PS5, so I don't know for sure. But sword fighting usually does feel amazing on that controller.

that was my thought. also hoping speaker has something to say throughout, but Deck you were totally right about the DualSense. it just adds a little something something.
