Call of Duty highlights next gen upgrade paths

CODupgrades

The latest annual iteration of Call of Duty, Ghosts, is nearly upon us – but this year, something different is happening. Just a few days after the game is released, Sony and Microsoft will be releasing their shiny next generations in the way of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One respectively. Thankfully, you’ll be able to upgrade to a next-generation version of COD: Ghosts on the cheap – and Activision’s now giving you even more ways to do so.

As detailed on the Ghosts website, Xbox gamers will be able to purchase a  a “disc-less dual license” through something called the “Xbox Game Ahead Program.” Available as a digital purchase through participating retailers, for just $70 gamers can get two digital copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts – one for Xbox 360, and one for Xbox One which then both get tied to a specific gamertag. Not a bad deal at all.

It’s also available via the Xbox live Game store, by purchasing the Xbox 360 version full price and then having the option to shell out $10 for a next-gen licence. The same deal is available to PlayStation fans who purchase the PS3 version through the SEN.

All of your progress – multiplayer included – will transfer to the next generation version of the game. A similar deal exists with the game’s DLC, where you’ll get a licence for the extra content for both generations of consoles just by buying a season pass. It’s a pretty sweet deal, and generous of the publisher, who could easily fleece you for full price for a second copy.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will hit PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on November 5, and be available on the PS4 and Xbox One once those consoles have launched.

    I don’t know, somehow I think you’re still being fleeced. An extra little premium for another downloadable copy for yourself? That’s like Steam charging me another $10 to download a game onto a second machine.

      But what if Steam releases their Steambox and forces you to buy it to get HL3?

            lol – I’ve just started on Hard difficulty with the combat rebalance mod installed. Still just cruising around the siege camp, haven’t gotten to a fight yet.

            I remember the fight in the castle courtyard where you need to open the gate was pretty tricky the first time I played it – on Medium.
