Updated PS3 to PS4 Game Upgrade Program Information
Sony just revealed more information about their plans to allow certain PS3 games to be upgraded to their PS4 versions. If you purchase the disc version of the supported games you are able to redeem the in box code as soon as you purchase the game. You can then download the game once you have your PS4. Unfortunately there is one major drawback, you need to hold on to the PS3 disc, DO NOT trade it in! Even though the PS4 doesn’t play PS3 games, in order to play the digital PS4 version of the game you need to insert the PS3 game disc into your PS4.
If you decide to go the digital route for both the PS3 and PS4 games all you have to do is pre-order or buy the game on the PS3 and once the PS4 comes out the discounted price will be reflected in the PSN Store. For more detailed steps on the upgrade program please go to the Sony blog. For more information about the upgrade program please check out Michael Cwick’s article.
