With the PlayStation 4 releasing in mid-November, and the release date for the Xbox One being likely around the same time, some of the big-name releases this holiday season will already have been released on the current-gen consoles before the new systems are launched. So what do you do if you are dying to play titles like Call of Duty: Ghosts on launch day, but you also plan on buying it for your PS4 or Xbox One further down the line? Well, Sony announced during their Gamescom conference that they would be partnering with several publishers to offer a rebate system to allow gamers to upgrade, and now Activision is sharing the first details of that partnership.
A $10/€10/$10 payment (The UK getting stuffed on exchange rates again…) will allow you to upgrade to a digital version of Call of Duty: Ghosts for PS4 if you have previously purchased the PS3 version, Activision has confirmed. They also reiterated that retailers like Amazon and Gamestop are also offering a similar deal for Xbox gamers to trade in their physical copy of the game.
This will likely be the same case through most games that are bridging the cross-generation gap, and also hopefully for non-launch games like Diablo III. Would these incentives convince you to jump in early for a game like Ghosts, or would you rather wait and have the full experience on your shiny new console? Let us know below.
