Call of Duty and Xbox may love holding hands, but here's some Call of Duty: Ghosts news relevant to PlayStation owners as well. Activision has confirmed that they'll be participating in Microsoft's and Sony's upgrade programs, at least with Ghosts. This means players who buy Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox 360 or PS3 can actually get an Xbox One or PS4 version for just $10 -- for a limited time, that is.
Depending on where you reside, the special upgrade price will be $10, €10, or £10. Currently, both GameStop and Amazon.com are confirmed to participate in this limited offer. No word yet on how limited this limited time offer will be, or what other retailers will be joining in.
Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg does a little explaining:
"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. 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."
The publisher will be dropping more details regarding this offer at some point before Ghost is out. Expect to see the new Call of Duty on November 5.
