You won't be able to download FF7R Intergrade from ps plus extra if you own the base game (UPDATE: It's now working)

Once again, Sony's game library license system fucked up.

If you bought the base game or got it from ps plus monthly game, you will not be able to access the intergrade version from this month's ps plus extra.
This is because the PSN store does not allow players to buy multiple alternative versions of the same game. E.g., if you own base version of a game, you will not be able to buy the deluxe version of it.
And this is exactly what's happening now. The base FF7R version is conflicting with intergrade version. The standalone Yuffie DLC itself is purchasable for the base version, but it is not free with ps plus extra. Unless you call the customer service to revoke your license for the base game, you are locked out to play the intermission from ps plus extra.

I imagine Sony's solution would be creating a new SKU version and let ps plus extra subscribers to download. I think people are excited to play the game but Sony keep fucking up on such things, really need to do better.

----------------------------------------------

Update: Sony fixed the issue, you are now able to claim Intergrade from ps plus extra.

are you sure the upgrade isn't free for extra?
There is no upgrade technically. You either buy the Intergrade version that includes base game + Yuffie DLC, or you can purchase the standalone Yuffie DLC. But like I said, you can't get Intergrade version if you own the base game and the standalone DLC is not free as of now with ps plus extra.
 
E.g., if you own base version of a game, you will not be able to buy the deluxe version of it.
I won't buy just for the lolz, but Deliver Us the Moon Digital Deluxe states that I already own another version, ie. PS4 and PS5 (although it is just rented via Plus, the legal speak should step up too), but the basket seems to be open. Does it refuse at checkout, or when?

Edit: MLB The Show All Star and Digital Deluxe state not avaiable though. This is also the case with FF VII?

It's not a great system, once I got PS Premium I hate to delete all my disc installs to redownload the PS+ digital copies, it's ridiculous.
Arent they the same version?
Why delete to redownload the same thing.

Im pretty sure ive had friends install from disk just to buy the license so they dont have to download.

how is that a thing lol? they DONT want to sell more stuff and make more money? wtf??? seems pretty anti business, is there a reasonable explanation for this? hard to imagine a massive company like sony just lets that fly for no reason

Is it though? Sony's PW encryption system for the PS3 was outdated whack as far as I understand, some cloudsaves on PS3 had download limits per day, no save compatibility between digital and disc of the same region (also not between PS+ download and ps+ stream version which should be the exact same damn thing but isn't), change PSN names... they are massive, but some departments obviously are not as competent as others.

Dude, I couldn't download Nioh from Extra because I had it in my cart, and I tried for 15 minutes to delete it from my cart but couldn't find it and I just gave up. Such a frustrating experience
 
yes, its is. sony is a massive company and this doesnt make sense. maybe there is some weird reason why they have to do it like that, or havent fixed the "bug" or whatever it is.
As i said Sony and their idea and vision of PSN and online is not at all up to date since 3 gens. Even though the P2P MP system of the PS3 is actually a heaven sent for game conservation.
Lower your expecttions, still be perplexed about their stupid stuff and than lower them even more.

eh, you kinda sound like youre just here to hate on sony. im not a fanboy of any kind so i couldnt care less about console warring. for the most part sony is doing fine, this is a bit of a speed bump that does have me perplexed tho. other than that, yeah id still say its hard to believe they are letting this issue slip.

Sounds more like a bug in the store system than a deliberate action.

Still dumb as fuck though.
Sony wasn't able to resolve the bug about buying PS+ games for years. I wouldn't count on a quick fix, their licensing system is a mess.

Nope the PS+ versions are a totally different licence.
For real?
Thats shitty.

But it also seems like a really inefficient backend design.....hopefully they get this sorted sooner rather than later.
Cuz wouldnt that mean if your PS+ lapses but you bought the game, you now need to delete the PS+ version to install retail?
I guess PS+ wasnt quite ready for primetime.

How so? You are surprised by their incompetence. I just named instances which could have prepared you for it. I kind of just shrug my shoulders at this. As I said they are great at other stuff, but more or less suck at online.

You’re thinking of Xbox 360.
Sony used PS3’s as dedicated server hardware for their first party titles whilst Xbox still used a P2P system.

Download the correct version, not the free PS+ version from last year.
If you click the ... it gives you a choice of which version to download, I believe.

This isn't true. You don't need to do this at all. I had a disc copy of GoW, Horizon ZD, and a bunch of other games and didn't have to redownload any.

MS did? I thought the whole shebang about Live was their dedicated robust better MP system? Thought only Sony had those suboptimal, slower at least inconsitent P2P system.

No idea about all games of course, (GT5s servers are gone and Crysis2 actually crashes) but eg Fat Princess is up and running even though it vanished from the store for no reason. I was able to play online a couple of games. Might have been no other first party title among them iirc.

No back then people praised P2P for some reason. Not sure why, might have just been a justifying the cost thing.

Man one would think Sony could have hired some kind of live services middle level exec to sort out their store already. It's always borked or limiting in some stupid way that should never have been an issue.

Hopefully they’ll fix this very soon, there are tons of PS+ subscribers that own the base version + all the people that bought it.

Why was I able to get the GOT directors cut even though I had the base game? Thus all seems strange to me.
It's because they have made integrade unpurchasable if you own the regular version (this is so that you don't buy the same game twice but instead buy the episode upgrade which is cheaper). What square need to do is make the addons free on PS+ Extra too. That way if you have the purchased regular version it wouldn't matter.

You can buy GoT and GoT Directors cut as two separate games I believe. I personally don't like that because it ends up with me not knowing what games I already own in a sale.

P2P is free, that's the whole point of having no extra HW in between. How would that justify cost of Live and be praiseable?
During the PS3 era PSN being free had more dedicated server games and Live was P2P but people justified the cost for some reason. Now a lot of games are still P2P on both.

Well I'm still trying to download stray from extra, but it's not even showing up. Guess I'll wait for the plus update to go live.

This will be fixed soon if it already isn't. There's no way Sony who gave the game away on plus last year would stop you from getting the new version on your higher tiered version of the service.

Hopefully they fix it quickly.
 
You guys do realize this will most likely work when the store actually fully updates..this happens a lot where people jump the gun and complain about something with plus, only for it to be fixed like two hours later. If I’m wrong on this, I apologize, but I bet it’s fixed later today.

EDIT - I stand corrected, I cannot download it either. What a croc of shit if they don’t fix it. I held off on playing through the ps5 version waiting on this.
