    Understanding The System

    Depending on how certain publishers and studios decide things, the PS4 to PS5 free upgrades can differ in terms of what is being offered. The additional features are also not the same across the board, so you best check out what is awaiting if you are making a move.

    Also, be sure to hold on to your physical discs if you are looking to upgrade, with digital games holding a slight advantage when it comes to upgrading convenience.
