PSA: If you are buying Control Ultimate Edition for PS5 you need to upgrade your base save on PS4 first

So basically, for me this would be purchase the Ultimate Edition, Start Ultimate Edition and let the game upgrade the save. Copy that save to PS5 and then run the PS5 free upgrade which will upgrade the save again. Just in case anyone misses this or tries to copy their base save to PS5 without first upgrading it and stop them running through the game again,

I bought the ultimate edition because I didn't play Control yet. I'm looking forward to it since there are no interesting PS5 launch games for me. So Cyberpunk and Control will be all I have for launch day 19.11.2020. Did 505 mention the changes they did to the upgrade yet?

I really hope that people who already played the game on current-gen consoles won't buy this edition, because it's only going to attract more publishers to offer re-releases instead of free/cheap PS5 upgrades.

So you have to buy the PS4 Ultimate version and upgrade to PS5.
Essentially but I think this is the only upgrade path offered anyway. This is more if someone got rid of their existing PS4 with their savefile and started the new PS5 version without knowing they could do this convoluted way to keep their save. It's also a pain in the ass though, because it means you only have this option as long as you have the PS4, so I have to make a big early decision to upgrade or get it later and run through it fresh 🤷‍♂️ I can't even save it to the cloud or USB if my PS4 is being traded in for example

This also proves that they could have given people the option of updating their save straight to PS5, the tools are available for Devs to use

This game has no release date on next gen consoles yet.

I'm a big fan of Remedy but held off on Control since I heard it doesn't run well on the base PS4. Glad to hear there will be an "ultimate edition" for PS5!

I’m done with the game, intrigued by the PS5 upgrades but I’m not paying for them.
