UPDATE: To fully clarify, the code in the retail boxes will be included with ALL editions of Ghosts for PS3. (Collector’s or Standard). The season pass will transfer over separately from the game upgrade offer.

Earlier this week, Activision revealed all the outlets in which you’ll be able to upgrade your copy of Ghosts from PS3 to the PS4 version. One of the options was with Sony’s Upgrade Plan. Today, Sony has revealed the full details on how their upgrade plan will work.

Retails Disc Version of PS3 to Digital of PS4: 

If you buy the retail disc version of Ghosts for PS3, you’ll be able to upgrade to the PS4 digital version for just $9.99. Each PS3 box will contain a special code, which you enter into the PlayStation Store, that will give you the discounted price on the PS4 version. Once the PS4 version becomes available, you have to download the digital version of Ghosts for PS4, and you have to enter your PS3 disc into the PS4 in order to play the game.

Step 1: Disc Only:
  • Step 1: Open an account on the PlayStation Network (or log in to PlayStation Network using your existing PlayStation Network ID account).
  • Step 2: Select the PlayStation Store icon on the PS3™ system home screen.
  • Step 3: On PlayStation Store, select ‘Redeem Codes’ at the bottom of the menu.
  • Step 4: Enter the voucher code (“Code”) exactly as it appears on the voucher.
  • Step 5: Once the Code has been entered correctly, select ‘Continue’ on the dialog box.
  • Step 6: Select ‘Confirm’ to accept the Terms of Service.
  • Step 7: Select ‘Continue’ to complete Code redemption.
  • Step 8: The Code redemption is now complete. The Code cannot be used again or associated with a different SEN account. Once you have your PS4™ system, you can proceed with the next step.
Step 2: TO DOWNLOAD PS4™ VERSION OF GAME:
  • Step 1: On your PS4™ system, register the PS4™ system with the SEN account through which you redeemed the Code.
  • Step 2: Select the PlayStation Store icon on the PS4™ system home screen.
  • Step 3: Search for the name of the game on PlayStation Store and select ‘Purchase’ to download digital version of the same game to your PS4™ system hard drive. The discounted price will be deducted from your network wallet according to the Terms of Service and User Agreement.
  • Step 4: Insert the PS3™ game disc into your PS4™ system**.

    I forgot, can anyone tell me if the digital version is cheaper?

    • Oscar

      Nope

    • khh1968

      Actually, yes the digital version is cheaper by the fact you’re not paying taxes on digital downloads.

      • shane

        If that’s the case why do games cost more on xbox and ps3 if you buy them as a digital download?

        • khh1968

          What game are you talking about? Ghosts from retail store = $59.99+tax. Ghosts digital download = $59.99 no tax.

          • shane

            Every game I have ever checked (on xbox anyway Uk) even mw3 they want £39.99 now for it yet my game shop £20 new. It might be different on xbox as I know PS3 has better deals

  • khh1968

    I have to have the PS3 disk inserted into the PS4 even though it will be digitally downloaded, no thanks. That’s just retarded.

    • fires

      So, you cannot file share the game

      • xThatTributeGuyx

        Not just that, it stops people from returning the game and getting 25 bucks back for essentially getting a new game, on a new system, for 45 bucks as opposed to 59.99. I will just wait the 10 days as I will have traded in my PS3 before the game even comes out.

  • Super_Deluxe

    The question I’m dying to get answered (legit answers only) is whether PS Plus will be per console or not like Xbox Live will be on the Xbox One.

    • Keshav Bhat

      That’s a question better directed at Sony. You can tweet them @AskPlayStation or @PlayStation.

    I just bought the ps3 version and ps4 version I like to have a physical copy not just a digital copy. Paid little more but I can actually see and touch my game just saying.

    • Sam

      Paid little more ? You buy two times the same game ! What a sheep Beheeee ! For 10$ you have PS4 version .. the same like PS3 ! WTF ?

      • Craig Steven Brooks Jr

        I bought ps3 because some of my friends won’t have a ps4. Then I bought a ps4 harden edition that’s why I bought both.

        • Keshav Bhat

          But if you buy the PS3 hardened edition, all the digital stuff will transfer over to PS4 too…and you get to keep the PS3 game once you upgrade..

  • I’m just going to get the PS4 copy so I don’t have to upgrade my version of the game.

  • wsad

    Wait so you can hove both ps3 AND ps4 versions at the same time for $70 ? SWEET I CAN PLAY THEM ON BOTH CONSOLES AT THE SAME TIME FOR $70

    • Keshav Bhat

      Yes!

  • Ethan Wieland

    But will the preorder bonus of the Ghost outfit transfer over as well?

  • BLah

    So what happens to the Free Fall Bonus Map from the PS3 once you upgrade to the PS4? Will that be transferred over to the PS4?

    • Dylan Fanaro

      It carries over don’t worrie

  • megan

    OK BIG QUESTION, IF I BUY THE PS3 VERSION THEN UPGRADE AT A LATER STAGE TO THE PS4 DO I LOOSE ALL MY STATS OR DO THEY CARRY OVER, ETC PRESTIGE AND CLAN PROGRESSION, I AM A CLAN LEADER SO I NEED TO KNOW THIS. NO POINT GETTING THE PS3 VERSION IF NOTHING CARRYS OVER RIGHT!

  • Michael1997
