Upgrading PS4's games to PS5 is a great service since it allows you to experience your favorite titles' next-gen versions! However, it is still important to remember that there isn't a catch-all system when upgrading your games.

The lack of knowledge about it confuses many players, especially when they learn the intricacies of their new PlayStation 5s. It is also not straight forward since the allowed free game uprades have been handled on a publisher-by-publisher basis.

How to upgrade PS4 games

According to Digital Trends, when a person buys a PS4 Digital Edition, the system will automatically offer the owner to upgrade their games to PS5. The notification will also appear once you insert an eligible PS5 disc into the console's system.

"We condemn these opportunistic sellers who are attempting to mislead other users," eBay said via Games Radar.
