    It is when you buy the upgraded game outright. If you already have the PS4 version it's not included when you upgrade to the PS5 one.

    @SnackPlissken The Yuffie story is included if you buy Integrade outright, but if you go the PS4->PS5 upgrade route, it's £16.

    @dfunked09 Well, then, that's me off to get a new dualsense today. I was hoping to hold out another week and get the black or red one, or both most probably.

    Think Iíll wait for a sale on the DLC. £16 seems a bit too much.

    I just loaded up the PS4 version after reading you guys say you need to transfer the save, but I'm not seeing an option. Are we sure it's not just reading the cloud save? Or that progress transfers at all?

    @SnackPlissken I look at it as such, 16 quid is a lot, but I paid 42ish quid for the remake, also my current credit was bout for about 25% discount so 12 quid more for the ps5 upgrade as well as new story content is a no brainer.

    Oh and it was my game of the year last year so am keen to go again!

    Nevermind, I didn't see that the PS5 had begun downloading an update before I started up the game.
    All good now.

    Managed to start downloading the PS5 upgrade at 4am this morning when I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep. Almost 12 hours later, says it has four hours to go. And THEN it will start downloading this Yuffie thing.

    Thank fuck Ratchet arrived today!

    I was super dissapointed with the narrative changes and the ending of FF7R.

    Now months later, I have a slightly different outlook. I cannot wait to jump back in, I think I can enjoy it based on its own merits while enjoying the nods to the original.

    Same, I've mellowed alot about the ending in the months after.

    Is the yuffie dlc standalone, or do you have to own the base game?

    @ZuluHero Pretty sure you need to own the base game. Like 64% sure.

    Fuck sake, I just deleted ff7 ps4 version and then loaded up ps5 version to discover that you can only download one save file and I uploaded several last night, not realising that each one replaced the previous... so now need to reinstall the ps4 version from disc to upload my complete file as opposed to the last one I uploaded (which was from a point in the game I enjoyed and want to be able to load up at any point).

    Ridiculous that it takes longer to install from disc 90GB than it does to download 85GB... oh and as I have thebps5 version installed I also had to delete other games to make more than an extra 100GB (on top of the 90GB taken by the ps4 game) in order to install it.

    Need more expansion space for the first time!

    @DakeyrasUK Pretty sure that save transfer system came out of a drunken dare among the developers and/or Sony to see just how bad they could make it.

    Like, why can't the 5 version detect ps4 save files and upload and download them automatically...

    @DakeyrasUK More seriously, I'll bet this is something to do with the weird and arcane file structure that Sony still cling to. That's the same one that means a US version of a game can't recognise UK saves/DLC and vice-versa (while Xbox has no such limitation).

    I always found it odd that PS consoles still have a pop up window when you need to save, whereas Xbox games just
    save straight from the game. It's been that way since PSP. Are they... using the same file type for save files that they did back in 2005?

    The whole upgrading saves is a joke on this console.

    Devs seem to have the option of using the OS to save or not. For some reason, Japanese developers nearly always use the OS save function and western devs usually seem to write their own.

    Am I right in thinking the Yuffie dlc is exclusive to the PS5 and won't be released on PS4?

    @LockeTribal No PS4 release announced at present, for sure.

    To transfer FFVIIR PS4 save files to PS5 version, can you download the old PS4 version of the game on the PS5 and do it all there, then download the native PS5 version, or does it need to be done on a PS4 first? It's all rather confusing.

    You need to go into the PS4 version, upload one save (you can't do more than one at a time) then go into the PS5 version and then download that save.

    If you want to transfer multiple saves, you need to repeat that cycle for each save, so you would need them both installed at the same time. If you're just transferring one save, I don't see why you couldn't uninstall the PS4 version after uploading the save.

    What is a joke it says you can upload as many as you like but you have upload one at a time, no mention that you have to download it before uploading the next... dick heads!

    Save system aside for the moment, the combat feels a fuckton better with 60fps.

    I agree. Played the first 5 mins and it looks fucking amazing. Then had to turn it off as I must finish Mass Effect first!

    That does indeed seem shit. I dont think Sony thought through the upgrade procedures very well.
