Call of Duty: Ghosts to Offer $10 Current Gen to Next Gen Upgrade


Are you concerned about all of these upcoming holiday season games launching across both current and next generation consoles and what it might mean to your wallet should you have to buy the same game again when you make the console switch? Well, Activision will be making the transition a lot easier and more affordable for Call of Duty: Ghosts players.

The Call of Duty: Ghosts PS3 and Xbox 360 launch is set for November 5th, which precedes the PS4 launch of November 15th and in all likelihood will do the same for the Xbox One launch as well. Should you buy a PS3 or 360 copy and then later buy a PS4 or Xbox One, for a limited time you will be able to pay a discounted $10 charge to upgrade your current gen copy to next gen, within the same console family of course. In-game progress and Season Pass content will also make the transfer for free!

“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.”

Cool deal. Hopefully other publishers will take a look at this policy for their cross-generation games.
