    PS3 to PS4 COD Ghosts upgrade just $10

    I was going to wait rather than buy both versions but if this upgrade scheme for other titles is the same price as COD Ghosts I might jump on them early for PS3. I had no idea the discount would be so much.

    If you're not bothered about having a retail copy it works out cheaper to buy it for PS3 and then upgrade to the PS4 version rather than pre order the PS4 version.

    Activision has revealed the price for the Call of Duty: Ghosts PS4 Upgrade program. Those who simply cannot wait the ten days between Call of Duty: Ghosts' release on PS3 and PS4 will be glad to know that they can upgrade to the next-gen version for only ten dollars.
    Edited to add:

    This has now been confirmed for retail releases as well as digital:

    I think this is part of what Sony talked about at their presser. AC4, BF4, CoD:G, Watch Dogs and some others will be heavily discounted on PS4 if you bought it on PS3.

    It is, no price was announced at the time though. I was thinking maybe they'd be discounted 50% or abit more. But for $10 I think it's an excellent incentive.

    But you will have to buy the digital versions of both, which are usually more expensive than can be found on Amazon, so the savings won't be as great.

    It's been confirmed this works for retail releases as well:
    http://n4g.com/news/1337483/ps3-to-p...-sony-confirms

    The way I'd work this scheme (which many others I assume would so it may change) is buy the PS3 version, upgrade to the digital PS4 version and then sell/trade the PS3 version if you didn't want/need the PS3 version afterwards.

    If it's retail, I'll be all over it like crazy. I like it. It's basically like renting the game for $10, and paying full price for the next-gen version when it is released.

    Brilliant. Might just get ghosts now on ps3 as itll be out approx 3 weeks before uk gets ps4. Then maybe trade in cod ghosts ps3 for fifa. I assume ea wont do the same deal for fifa 14 as its out 2 months before ps4 version.

    So let me get this straight: If I were to buy the DIGITAL version of the game on PS3, would I then be able to buy the digital version on PS4 for 10 bucks only?

    This whole concept is only interesting to me if it isn't limited to buying a RETAIL PS3 copy. I don't want any more discs.

    So you only need to have played the game on your ps3 to be able to upgrade to the digital copy on ps4?

    Meaning I could just borrow it from someone, can't see that somehow, can you.

    Pointless for me as I play SP for COD games only - BF is where the MP is at!

    Speaking of which isn't there a similar/identical deal for BF4?

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Yes, there is. That's why I was asking in the first place.

    Only info I can find is on retail copies at the minute with more details to follow soon on the upgrade program.

    I thought the upgrade would be more suitable to digital copies as you can't trade in the PS3 version so would seem strange to exclude this incentive from digital copies.

    This is a very good move and I hope the other games fall into line on the price

    I was thinking this too, but they'll probably give a PSN download key with every purchase which can obviously just be used the once
