Control's PS4 owners get - then lose - Ultimate Edition granting next-gen upgrade

One commenter reported that PSN told them they owned Control's Ultimate Edition, and after deleting it from their console in order to test what would be re-downloaded, found that the console was receiving the Ultimate Edition and that the game's Deluxe Edition was gone from the store. "As we are only doing additional development on Control Ultimate Edition on the next gen platforms, we are unfortunately unable to offer an upgrade path to all existing Control players".

Users in a couple of ResetEra threads first noticed the access early Thursday morning, around the time of Control Ultimate Edition's midnight September 10 launch. To make the situation even stickier, an accidental upgrade has happened after 505 said they couldn't and wouldn't upgrade previous editions.

Canelo Alvarez Sued Golden Boy Promotions/DAZN Tuesday
Alvarez is insisting that when he signed the deal in 2018, there was no mention of him taking on a premium or ordinary foe. So, now, this is his next blockbuster legal move to try to end his deal with Golden Boy and DAZN.

Recall that yesterday, individual PS4 owners, who at one time bought Control and its seasonal pass, announced the possibility to download the aforementioned Ultimate Edition for free.

"The upgrade path that we are offering is only possible when upgrading from the same version of the game", the publisher previously claimed. Instead, players would need to own the Ultimate Edition, which costs an additional $39.99 United States dollars to get the game for PS5 and Xbox Series X. Now, things have gotten weirder as a number of PS4 players were accidentally upgraded to the Ultimate Edition of Control, which contradicts a previous sentiment from the publisher. It is possible that the "groups" the publisher referred to on August 20 meant that PlayStation 4 owners could be upgraded easily, but Xbox One or other platforms could not. Thus, this version is identical in content to the extended edition of the project and the set of the game with a season ticket. But go fast now and those same people are stunned by the price and the "add to basket" option. Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is valued at $70 on Xbox Series X/S and PS5, yet this bundle likewise incorporates admittance to the last-gen rendition, successfully making the redesign cost $10.
