Sony recently announced that Marvel’s Avengers and Borderlands 3 would be available for PlayStation Now starting today, allowing subscribers to play them till July 5th and September 29th respectively. With both titles having free upgrade options for PS5, it was assumed that the current gen versions were also available through the service. However, this isn’t the case according to Sony.

Speaking to IGN, the company confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers and Borderlands 3 on PlayStation Now were the PS4 versions. Prior to this, Square Enix said that save data from the PS4 version could be transferred to the PS5 version but that the latter required a separate purchase on PS Now. Furthermore, Push Square tested and confirmed that it could stream and download the PS4 versions for both titles but had to purchase their PS5 versions separately.

While frustrating, such a practice isn’t especially new for PlayStation services following the PS5’s launch. Final Fantasy 7 Remake was added to PlayStation Plus in March but Square Enix clarified that this version was not eligible for the upcoming free PS5 upgrade. Whether Sony plans to continue this for PlayStation Now or change this in the future remains to be seen.
