How to Upgrade Gran Turismo 7 From PS4 to PS5 Version
First off, there are two different upgrade methods that you can use to unlock all of the extra visual goodies present on the PS5 version of the GT7 like ray-tracing and full 4K resolution. The only catch is that upgrading means you have to download the game on the PS5. Even if you have the physical version of the game on the PS4, there is no upgrade path that will get you to a physical disc of the game.

Before Getting Started, it’s important to note that you can play the PS4 version of the GT7 on any issues without the PS5. You’ll just get any visual upgrades or super-fast SSD load times that come with the current-gen version. Also, you need the version of the PS5 that has the disc drive.
First, slot into the GT7 of your disc, then head on over to the PS Store on your PS5. You should see an option on the game page that will let you upgrade to the standard digital version of the GT7 on the PS5 for $ 10. Since it is a completely different console version of the game it may still take a while to download and install depending on your internet speed.
