Activision Announces Cheap Next-Gen Upgrade Option For Call Of Duty: Ghosts

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10348:]]

Actvision announced at Gamescom a pretty good deal for those gamers who will be getting a next-gen console somewhere down the line, but may have already purchased Call of Duty: Ghosts for PS3 or XBox 360.

For only ten bucks you can upgrade to the next-gen console version, PS4 or X-Box One, and bring all your Call of Duty: Ghosts Season Pass Content with you.

So you need not buy a second copy of the game, you just have to pay the ten bucks for an upgrade. Not bad!

For example, if you can’t wait to play Call of Duty: Ghosts, which comes out November 5th for PS3, but plan on getting PS4 when it becomes available on November 15th, you can buy the PS3 version and then just do the upgrade. Same for XBox one when that becomes available.

From the below announcement, it looks like more details are forthcoming; hopefully they continue this option through the Holidays, and it would be nice to apply to older games as well (Black Ops II).

Update: Sony announced policy is also in effect for Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV, and Watch Dogs.
