I know that everyone is caught up in the excitement over new consoles, which is fine, but I just want to note that Sony tying a bunch of Playstation Plus stuff to owning a PS5 is piping hot garbage, especially because you can't buy a PS5 even if you want one most places. It's not just Bugsnax, which at least kind of makes sense because it's a specific version of the game they're offering that won't run on PS4, it's the PS Plus Collection, which can only be activated on a PS5 (it doesn't even have to be your PS5; you can use a friend's) and then can be played fine on PS4.
What the hell?
PlayStation Plus is a paid subscription service. No other service that I can think of locks you out of content that you're more or less paying for until you have hardware that content doesn't need to run. Netflix doesn't make you log on with a 4K TV if you want to watch a bunch of 1080p content. Apple Music doesn't make you log in with high def speakers to listen to a bunch of its normal music. This has flown under the radar but deserves a lot more attention.
It's one thing to give you an incentive to upgrade by offering a PS5 game, even though nobody can get a PS5, I understand that. But locking a bunch of other stuff for the PS4 behind more expensive hardware that isn't even widely available, is just incredibly tone deaf and makes no sense.
We all pay the same amount for PlayStation Plus and, again, no other company does this.
