Were you excited to take out the vintage GTA games and take them for a spin, just to get a taste of the old days?

Well, if that’s so, then you might want to hear this, especially if you are a PlayStation player. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy is mostly available as a physical edition, but PS5 gamers won’t be happy with this.

If you too were hoping to experience these remasters on your brand new PS5, upgrading the PS4 will prove to be impossible, as there is currently no upgrade.

No GTA Trilogy free upgrade for PlayStation 5 gamers

The long-anticipated GTA Trilogy remaster was released last month for consoles and PC, allowing us to relieve some of the classics that we’ve played years ago.

All of the three games have been revamped with visual enhancements and gameplay improvements for current-generation platforms. 

Each of these popular titles actually features higher-resolution textures, greater draw distances, revamped lighting, weather effects, and modernized controls.

However now, disappointed fans took to social media to express their thoughts about all the bugs, glitches, and the fact that PlayStation players were left behind.

This controversial Definitive Edition is mainly considered a new low for Rockstar Games, as recent decisions made players believe that developers don’t really care that much about these games.

When this project got announced some time back, everyone was actually really excited at the chance to cruise through Vice City, or Liberty city, in a modern, high-definition environment.

All that turned into a nightmare for many, after discovering that these remasters are sometimes even worse than the original games from back in the day.

It remains to be seen how Rockstar is planning to sweeten the pot because as of right now, fans are enraged and many are demanding their money back.
