PLAY NOW, UPGRADE LATER

 

Buy BATTLEFIELD 4 ON PS3, Upgrade later to PS4

 

I bring you news from EA on how they wish to make it easy for BF4 fans to upgrade from the current generation of consoles to the next generation of entertainment. That’s why today we are clarifying the offers that will make the transition effortless, saving you time and money.

 

Don’t wait to get into the action. Below are the details of how you can buy now and upgrade easily later.

 

Prepare 4 Battle!

 

 

UK

 

GAME – Play now and get £40 towards your next-gen upgrade

Buy a copy of Battlefield 4 PlayStation 3 from GAME. When you're ready to upgrade, return back to your local GAME store and trade in your  PlayStation 3 version and receive £40 towards an upgrade for a PlayStation 4 version. For complete terms and conditions visit Game.co.uk here: http://bit.ly/17Q4R74

 

Worldwide

 

Sony PlayStation

Inside marked physical copies of Battlefield 4 for PlayStation 3 there will be a voucher with a unique code printed on it. This code will allow you the one-time offer of buying a digital version of Battlefield 4 via the PlayStation Store for only £10.

Thanks for the news Envisager. Not interested in Battlefield 4 precsely, but it's great to hear this (I so remember back in the day having some games PS2 versions, while the PS3 ones looked godly and having to shell out the full price *sigh*) -- looking forward to other titles such as ACIV :)

Wow so if I'm in the UK want to get BF4 for cheap on the PS4 I have to buy it at GAME? That's some bull*****. Why is it only the UK that has this dumb restriction? Will you guys please stop giving GAME exclusive deals.

If you purchased Premium then the DLC and stats will transfer one time only from PS3 > PS4 - here is an image to illustrate that

its nice to see GAME trying, though the Sony deal sounds alot hotter as it seems you can own both the PS3 and PS4 versions, which is always good :).

will Sonys deal work with digital purchases of the game aswell, or is it just a disc based promotion?

what qualifies as 'worldwide'? If that includes europe, I might just import it from amazon. I'd probably be able to buy it *and* upgrade to the PS4 version for less than just the PS3 version from GAME.

 

Any news on whether FIFA 14 will work in this way too?

The Game trade up offer is also available to FIFA - I'll need to check if the PS3 > PS4 digital offer is also available.

Any clues as to who will be selling the 'marked physical edition'?

 

Will this be reserved for certain retailers only, or will it apply to all initial pressings of the game?

I understand from this there are 2 offers on the go. The UK one is classed as UK as it is only available in GAME UK and not in GAME stores worldwide, then there is the second option also available in the UK but also worldwide.

PS3 > PS4 digital is not retailer specific. Then Game have an offer where you can trade up physical copies

Envisager, can you please confirm if we need to keep the ps3 disc in order to be able to play the digital download on the ps4, someone on mcvuk quoted Andrew House stating: "they will be able to download the game for ps4 provided they still have the ps3 disc"

What if some of the people on our friends list haven't got a PS4, but have got BF4.

If after we've transferred our progress to the PS4, will playing on the PS3 wipe out the PS4 progress?
