Wow, when Sony announced at Gamescom that you could upgrade to PS4 versions of certain games for a big discount, I didn't think the prices would be that low

that's frigging awesome

sengoku1012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

what a great program..
hopfully we will be getting the juice details soon.

cleft51012d ago

Thats an insanely good deal.

Raf1k11012d ago

I agree. I was kind of expecting a $10 - $20 reduction but to get it for that low is pretty surprising.

CommonSense1012d ago

You guys do realize this is pretty much the standard for both consoles, right? Even gamestop is making the same offer. Amazon, too: http://www.joystiq.com/2013...

stop getting all wet in your panties because it's a sony announcement.

ZodTheRipper1012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

lol wut? My question is only whether we can keep the PS3 version or not after "upgrading" ...if not, I'm not really interested. If yes that would be awesome and make me buy CoD despite not being interested in it!

This would mean that I don't have to wait for the PS4 versions and also that my brother who'll get my PS3, can play them too after the PS4 launch.

Hopefully they do something like this for GTA 5

ZidaneNL1012d ago

You're honestly expecting GTA V to appear on next-gen consoles? Best joke of 2013 so far.

awesomeperson1012d ago

I believe it will, alongside the PC port they'll do. It would make sense - considering how it should feasibly be easy with new console(s) architecture and would give a wider population from who to gain revenue.

That said, I don't believe they'ld do a similar "cheap upgrade" deal - simply because it hasn't been announced for next-gen yet.

ZidaneNL1012d ago

I admire everyone's optimism, I really do, but I honestly think Rockstar would only be hurting themselves with a next-gen port. Most people who want GTA V in the first place will get it on the current-gen consoles. Sure, the ability to play it on your PS4 or XBO is useful, but I doubt Rockstar would want to invest in them right now.

TheOneEyedHound1012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

Why not Rockstar only cares about money.

Maybe it will make it's way 6-10 months later.

The answer is Gaikai, they can simply port it to the PSN Store. They don't have to change a thing.

Chard1012d ago

Clearly Rockstar are considering it. They've been very vague about it when they could have just outright ruled out the possibility. Understandably they don't want the promise of a next gen version to hamper current gen sales, but they could increase their early current gen sales by securing all the fence sitters who are waiting for a 'possible' next gen version. All they have to do is give a definitive statement.

morganfell1012d ago

Rock star stated two weeks ago they are "Heavily supporting"next generation consoles so you might want to rethink your comment.

thehitman1012d ago

@Zidane I contemplated not getting GTAV because its not on ps4. I will most likely just borrow it from a friend who buys it and is done with it for ps3. I think not having a ps4 version and it releasing this late is a mistake by TakeTwo if they dont have a version in the works already(which it seems like they really dont).

I think that by the time GTA V came out for next gen consoles, if it ever does (why shouldn't it, though), the value would be too depreciated to get something significant back. R* is gonna want to let the PS3/60 sales reach their peak and then some (because GTA games always sell for years). We're talking a year, year and a half, methinks.

princejb1341012d ago

Agree. The only reason I'm not buying this game is because I'm done with buying ps3 games
I'm all hyped up and my pockets are full of money for the ps4

gaelic_laoch1012d ago

SONY again Walking the Walk after Talking the Talk! Unlike others shuffling around like brain starved zombies on drugs!

aiBreeze1012d ago

Zombies don't know how to do 180 turns.

gaelic_laoch1012d ago

:( I really should not be insulting Zombies :(

_FantasmA_1012d ago

If they could use guns and get organized back in 2005, I'm sure by now zombies are teaching quantum physics and flying zombies to the moon by now. Romero lost the touch after Land of the Dead :(

theWB271012d ago

*Steps into circle jerk*
You two are having a circle jerk when Microsoft is doing the same thing through Amazon and Gamestop on more games than just COD.

There is no way you'll be able to keep the old game. Think they'll give away two just launched, AAA titles for 70 bucks.

*Steps out of the circle jerk*

Carry on.

gaelic_laoch1012d ago

I am a married man and not interested in taking part in a circle jerk but i am flattered.

But i agree there is always a catch!

pyramidshead1012d ago

like dead rising 3 but with much better frame rates :P

Jeff2571012d ago

The only downside I see for some people is that you have to buy the game on PS4 as a digital copy. Still the fact that the price is so low and that DLC and Season Pass will carry over for no additional cost could get people to go that route. Also I expect you will be able to keep your PS3 copy and continue to play it as well. That will be good for people like myself who have friends I game with on PS3 that may not be getting a PS4 at launch. Can still game with them and also game with those who do have the PS4.

_FantasmA_1012d ago

Who cares man. I like both. Some games are cheap with PS Plus and some games you can find cheap online or in the store. I like having alot of digital games and my main game in the Blu Ray drive. I can switch games easily by just laying in bed and using the DS3. No I'm not some lazy 400 pound fat bastard who craps in bucket by the side of the bed, but I want my PS3 to last me a really long time. By not having to use the drive all the time, I can keep it lasting longer. Digital and physical copies means more choices and as long as both exist, each with their advantages, then every gamer can be happy.

Jeff2571012d ago

I never said I had an issue with Digital. I said some people will have an issue. I for one am debating whether I want to go mostly digital so that it will be easier to access my games from anywhere or if I still want to collect physical and have them on my shelves. One thing that may sway me is how easy would it be to access remote play on the Vita between digital titles and physical. I expect with physical you will need that disc in the system. But maybe with digital you will be able to boot your PS4 from the Vita and play any digital title on that system remotely.

Gamesgbkiller1012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

They said it will be for a limited time.

What if I bought BF4 next year for PS3, will I have a discount for the PS4 version?

Or I have to buy it before PS4 launch ?

iamnsuperman1012d ago

It is probably for those games that are months within launch. A year down the line people would be upgrading/upgraded anyway and less games will be releasing on the PS3 (which have a PS4 version). I assume those games released after a year will not have this function nor if you buy BF4 on PS3 next year as it and the PS4 has been out for sometime. I m assuming this programme would last until sometime between early and mid next year
