Call of Duty: Ghosts format upgrade to cost $10

Buy current gen game and upgrade to Xbox One and PS4 for small fee

Players who upgrade their Call of Duty Ghosts game from the PlayStation 3 to the PlayStation 4 will be charged a fee of $10 in the US, £10 in the UK or EUR10 for the rest of Europe.

Last night Sony announced that a number of games will be upgradable when they become available on the new system, allowing players of the latest Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed and Battlefield titles to shift from current to next-gen systems at a reduced price.

Activision will also roll out the scheme for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Call of Duty Ghosts.

"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, EUR10, or £10," commented Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

"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."

Given the fact some of the current-gen versions of these games are releasing mere days before their next-gen counterparts, why pay the $10 extra instead of simply waiting?

Sounds kinda clever. Far more people will buy this game than a next generation console. In the year between this game release and the next, there could be a number of people willing to upgrade both game and console in that space of time.

Well, they'll get that "double dip" from collectors and folks who own both consoles (trust me, I've heard from people buying BOTH because they roll that way). I'd do that if I had that kind of money to burn (and hell, I want to see the big, big differences between this and "next" gen games, which I'll bet won't be much other than more polished visuals for the first half year or so)...
