It’s been confirmed that those who purchase the PlayStation 3 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts will be able to upgrade to the next-generation PS4 version for a mere ten dollar fee.
The aforementioned offer, which makes a lot of financial sense, will only be available for a limited time, and will not be restricted to North America. In fact, the requested price point is similar across the board, with overseas regions being asked to pay €10 or £10 to upgrade.
Adding extra incentive for gamers to support this promotion is the fact that Activision will transfer players’ Call of Duty: Ghosts stats from one console to the other. As such, folks won’t have to worry about losing their great kill/death ratios.
Electronic Arts, Activision, Warner Bros. and Ubisoft are all expected to offer similar promotions across the board, with games like Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs having been mentioned.
