    ANSWERED: CAN I UPGRADE A PS4 GAME TO LATEST PS5 VERSION?

    If you have a game on PS4 and a version is available on PS5, you may be able to upgrade without having to pay the full price.

    Depending on the game, the upgrade may require a smaller additional purchase or, in some cases, no extra cost.

    The process also differs slightly depending on whether you have the disc or digital edition of the console.

    MORE CYBERPUNK 2077 WOE

    A huge and long-awaited update to “fix” Cyberpunk 2077 has actually broken a key part of the game.

    The brand new Patch 1.1 mends countless bugs in Cyberpunk – but also causes a major issue in the story mode.

    During the quest Down on the Street, V receives a video-call from Takemura.

    Sadly, he'll stare into the distance silently – effectively breaking the quest.

    There's no obvious way to move past this point, leaving many unable to progress.

    MEET THE BOT NABBING YOUR PS5

    Scalpers who are buying huge quantities of PS5 stock and selling it at an inflated rate are now suspected of using bots to checkout first.

    One of the most common bots is called an AIO bot, or all-in-one bot.

    These buy at an inhuman speed, scanning hundreds of websites every second to check if the PS5 is in stock.

    The instant an item drops the bot will buy it and checkout, faster than any human could input their details.

    POLICE CALLED TO TOKYO STORE AFTER GAMERS GO MAD

    Police were reportedly called to a Japanese store on Saturday, after gamers desperately tried to grab a PS5.

    The staff at Yodobashi Camera, in Tokyo, used a random lottery system in a bid to deter scalpers – but when handing out the few hundred tickets, the excited crowd surged forward.

    The chaos continued despite a spike in Tokyo's coronavirus cases and the current state of emergency, and police arrived within 10 minutes.

    The sale was eventually cancelled as a result.

    Dave Gibson, who was there at the time, tweeted: “They cancelled the sale due to people being insane!! Pushed so hard even the cash registers and staff went backwards. I've never seen that kind of insanity in Japan before…”
