Activision Offers CoD Fans Incentive To Upgrade A Console
Still haven't upgraded to one of the new consoles yet?
Well, Activision has a deal for you: If you purchase a digital copy of the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for PS3 or Xbox 360, you'll get the PS4 or Xbox One version free of charge.
This is exactly what Activision did with Destiny, if you think you've heard this before. The publisher also offered a similar promotion deal last year for Call of Duty: Ghosts, but that required $10 for the upgrade. The only downside to this new promotion is that you have to buy the digital copy of the game, but don't forget that your PS3 or 360 version will still work after you've downloaded the PS4/Xbox One iteration...not that you'd care, probably.
For PlayStation fans, this title takes advantage of Cross Buy, and it's unclear if the same deal is in place for the Xbox One and 360 versions. Just remember that you can't change platforms if you want this deal to work; PS3 goes to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One, no exceptions. And don't forget that you can transfer your multiplayer stats and equipment, along with any downloadable content you've snagged.
There is a statute of limitations on the offer, however, as this promotion is only good up until March 31, 2015.
