Sony has just launched a free PS4 upgrade for its PlayStation OS, with developers having to buy a “limited” version of the game on the PlayStation Store.
“If you purchase the ‘limited’ version of PS4 Pro, you can download PS4 games and movies for free, as long as you own the PS4,” the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.
“In the past year, we have increased the number of free titles available for PS Plus members, and we are making further enhancements to our PS4 ecosystem, including the release of a new PS4-based game.
In addition, you will be able to download new PS VR games and experiences for free.”
The PS4 update will launch on December 12 for all PS4 owners, and the update will be available for a “small” subset of PS Plus subscribers.
This is the second free upgrade to PS4 that Sony has launched this year, following the launch of the PS VR, which is free for PlayStation Plus members.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 update will also be free for all other PS4 users.
There’s no word on what the next free upgrade will be, but it’s likely that it will be a smaller upgrade than the PSVR.
Sony has been experimenting with free upgrades in the past, but this is the first time that developers have been able to get a free update.
This will be the first free upgrade from Sony to its PS4 operating system, and it comes on the heels of the release on October 27 of the $150 “PS Plus Gold” version, which also comes with free games and services.
This upgrade will also come with a number of additional games that are only available on the PS Plus Gold version of PlayStation.
“While PS Plus is the primary way to access PlayStation content, we’re excited to be adding a free PlayStation Plus Gold upgrade for the first month after the PS+ launch,” Sony said.
“We’re also making PS Plus the default PS Plus subscription for PSVR and PS4 gamers, so you’ll be able get the most out of your subscription.”
