Sony's PS4 game upgrade program detailed, says price discount is available for limited time
Sony previously announced that gamers who bought select cross-generational titles for the PlayStation 3 would be able to upgrade their games at a discount when the PlayStation 4 releases, though the has company kept mum on pricing. Until today.
Sony has confirmed that the upgrades to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Watch_Dogs and Battlefield 4 will cost only $9.99 (£6).
Gamers who bought a physical copy of the game will receive a pack-in code that they'll need to redeem on the PlayStation Store for a digital copy of the PS4 version (when available). To unlock and activate the upgrade, the physical disc must be in the console.
Those who bought the digital copy will auto-qualify for the discounted upgrade on the PlayStation Network. They will then be able to download the PS4 version when it becomes available. Simple, right?
Sony warned gamers not to drag their feet, though. The upgrade program will last for only a limited time. They'll need to redeem their code and make the purchase before 31 January for Assassin’s Creed IV and Watch_Dogs; 28 March 28 for Battlefield 4; and 31 March 31 for Call of Duty: Ghosts.
