COD: Ghosts Will only be $10 When Upgrading from PS3 to PS4

Activision is the first to come forward with their details on the PS3 to PS4 upgrade program announced yesterday at Gamescom, and it is better than I expected.

Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq:ATVI), today announced further details surrounding Call of Duty®: Ghosts’ participation in Sony’s PS3 to PS4 upgrade program. The upgrade program is completely optional and allows consumers who purchase Call of Duty: Ghosts on PlayStation 3 to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version of the game for a limited time at a suggested retail price of only $10, €10, or £10 depending on territory. More details will be shared in the weeks to come.

“Today we’re announcing that anyone who buys Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS3 will be able to upgrade to Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS4 for a limited time at a suggested retail price of just $10, €10, or £10,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “Retail programs, announced by Amazon and GameStop allow our players to upgrade from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts for $10 as well. We have also previously announced that for a limited time our players will bring all of their Season Pass Content and all of their in-game progress with them within a console family, for no additional charge. We have the best fans in the world, and we want to make this transition as seamless and easy for them as possible. And there’s more news to come on that front. Stay tuned.”

  1. Wow. I have two different feelings about this story.

    1. It’s a surprise that Activision is actually trying to help gamers switch to the next generation of consoles by offering this deal, when in reality, they could just say “You bought CoD for PS3 last week, but now want to play it on your new PS4? Cool. Buy it again, $65.”

    2. I don’t think I will buy another game for my PS3, because of the lack of information we have about how that game (disc, or store purchase) will translate onto my PS4. So there’s no way I’m going to buy a $65 game, to play for a month or two, then pay an extra $10 to play it on my ~$400 console. Nice try, Activision.

    I do understand all the children who just have to play CoD immediately, so I guess for them it’s a decent deal.

  2. I love it.. buy COD for my son on his PS3 and then get my own copy for my PS4.. the only question I still have about the games.. is are they going to be cross play with ps3 to ps4?

    Great deal. Will be interesting to see what other companies come up with.

    I’m hoping they do something like this on a longer term basis. I’d really like to get a discount on GTA V when I eventually buy it for PS4.
