Ghost Of Tsushima: Director’s Cut: Players Are Unhappy About Sony’s Move

The director’s cut re-release of the game isn’t exactly a customer-friendly move.


Sony Interactive Entertainment and Sucker Punch have recently announced Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, which will be available on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. It will include a new location (Iki Island, previously rumoured as Ghost of Ikishima), as well as new content and features. This is one of the first games in Sony‘s new approach of Director’s Cut re-releases, as Death Stranding will also get one on PlayStation 5.

The game’s PlayStation 5 version will utilize the DualSense controller’s capabilities, which makes sense, but now comes the twist. On PlayStation 4, upgrading the original Ghost of Tsushima to the Director’s Cut version will cost 20 dollars. It makes sense: it does give you the new content for that price, and it’s impossible to get a free upgrade, as it’s not a small upgrade.

If you upgrade from the PlayStation 4 original to the PlayStation 5 Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, that will cost you 30 dollars. Yes, that is 10 dollars more, or, in other words, a 50% price hike! And it’s still not free if you buy the PS4 Director’s Cut, and THEN upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version, as that isn’t going to be free either. Instead, it will cost you ten dollars! In other words, Sony is charging you for using the PlayStation 5-specific features!

And the players did not take it kindly on both Twitter and Reddit, claiming that it isn’t a fair move by Sony. If you don’t have money for a PlayStation 5 (or can’t find one in the stores), then you simply have to pay the company AGAIN just to get the console-specific features, even though such upgrades have been FREE until now!

This isn’t the brightest idea from Sony.
