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 :smileyhappy:

Re: Buy BATTLEFIELD 4 on PS3, Upgrade later to PS4

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.

Re: Buy BATTLEFIELD 4 on PS3, Upgrade later to PS4

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 :smileyhappy:.

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

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

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?

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.
