Activision Details Cross-Gen Upgrade Plans For CoD: Ghosts
We know that some of you are asking: "How exactly do I upgrade my current-gen copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts to the next-gen version?
Activision had revealed an upgrade plan that meant you wouldn't have to pay $60 twice, and now they've offered full details. Pay attention if you intend to pick up both copies of the game at some point.
Firstly, for a limited period of time, the physical copies of the PS3 version of Ghosts will include a download code that will let you purchase the PS4 copy for $10 on the PSN. If you buy the title digitally for PS3, these will be automatically eligible for the upgrade; just bear in mind that all copies must be purchased and all codes must be redeemed before March 31, 2014. Secondly, for the UK and European markets, there's a similar plan, which will let customers upgrade their physical PS3 copies to the PS4 copy for about £10/€10.
Thirdly, there will be retailer-specific upgrade offers, but these appear to be only for the Xbox 360 to Xbox One transition (at least for now). Microsoft also has a Game Ahead program, which offers digital copies of Ghosts for the 360 and Xbox One in one package that retails for $69.99. Fourthly and lastly, Activision says that if you purchase a Season Pass for Ghosts before May 31, 2014, this will include the next-gen upgrade for owners of the current-gen version. The Season Pass will retail for $50.
There, see? They've pretty much got you covered. They really, really want you playing the new Call of Duty, regardless of which platform(s) you own.
