Sony confirms how upgrading from PS3 to PS4 will work on select titles


Sony has confirmed that if you have purchased certain PS3 titles on disc or digitally then you can get the PS4 digital version of these selected games for a discounted price when you buy the PS3 version. Although if you have purchased the PS3 version on disc then you'll need to keep the disc to be able to play the digital version on PS4.

For a limited time, when gamers buy the disc or digital version of selected games for PlayStation 3 they can download a PlayStation 4 digital copy of the same game from PlayStation Store for a discounted price. Redeem the code packed into the PS3 version of the game on PlayStation Store and download the PS4 version of the game. Then use the original PS3 disc in your PS4 system to activate and start playing. You do not need a PS4 to redeem your code - simply redeem your code, then download your digital copy when your PS4 system arrives.

Supported Games:

- Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
- Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition
- Battlefield 4
- NBA 2K14

Yes this is all well and good, but what is going to happen to the folks that preordered the Watchdogs Bundle? my Mate desperately wants this resolved as he doesn't want any of the Killzone Bundles. I am thankfully all good as I preorder the Shopto Custom Bundle of - PS4+Fifa 14+Extra Pad.

I think they'll probably swap watch dogs out and put in AC4 instead, of course that is a guess.

Yeh my Mate said if they offer AC IV he would be happy with that, guess he is just worried that its taking long for those that have no interest in Killzone.

Yeah I can understand why he would be worried, but I'm sure they'll sort something out, even if worst comes to worse and he has to get killzone, I'm sure he'll be able to sell it on at pretty much full price if he's quick about it.

Shame they didn't make the PS4 compatible with PS3 games then there wouldn't be this issue unless you wanted the improved graphics etc from the PS4 console
