should be free

still better than buying it full price
Number-Nine  +   303d ago
if your plan is to get both then you could just wait a few extra weeks and save some money.

Gta 5 for $10 on ps4 would be nice
Deadpoolio  +   303d ago
Yes cause you should totally get a NEW copy of a game on a NEW console because you are too stupid to wait 2 extra weeks..Are you retarded? Serious question, you should get it for free LMAO...

stop complaining, this is a move in the right direction for EA.
You are aware of that EA only makes 20% of what they could if people upgrades to next gen?

Believe it or not, this is an incredible deal :)

well said man, cheers.
Number-Nine  +   303d ago
you know this insures them that they get some money, right?

instead of people holding out for the ps4/xb1 version, they'll go out and buy this gens game because they think they're getting a good deal when they see "upgrade for $10".

in turn, you're paying $70 total instead of 60. i can only imagine the people who are purchasing the ps3 version then will buy the ps4 at launch.

it's just a ploy to grab even more money.
it should be free, period.

lol cause that makes sense right?

I guess I have to break it down for you guys.

People aren't going to be afraid to purchase BF4 (or whatever game) for the ps3/360 because they know that they're not going to have to purchase the same game at full price for next gen versions.

If EA charges the game full price, only a handful of people would be willing to buy it to make the switch, or end up just waiting for next gen.

These companies are suckering you for an extra $10 because you see that upgrading is "inexpensive".

EA is using the next gen to BOOST sales further. They know suckers like you will want to play the newest game asap and then shell out an extra $9.99 to play on next gen.

Well i'm not getting BF4 right away because I would rather wait for the version that comes with all the DLC but every PS3 game that is doing this upgrade for 10 bucks is a good deal to me. I am getting COD for PS3 day one and going to use the code for my PS4 and then share it with my bro so he can have it also hopefully they allow that two accounts on the ps4. So basically three copies of the game for 70 bucks if it works.
ExCest  +   303d ago
Then you pay for the bandwidth costs (I realized it's a digital version. That ain't cool).

Or is that all imaginary?

You're getting to play the game early (albeit a lesser version) for $10. Take it or leave it.

AntoineDcoolette  +   302d ago
Lol, right on brother. I can't believe people are bitching about it instead of giving EA props.
tigertron  +   303d ago
I was considering doing the GAME trade in deal, but it's only a 4 week wait for the PS4 version and I'll have GTAV and Beyond to keep me going until then.
DirtyPimp  +   303d ago

i save $30.00 joe... bam! pimp sllap
joe90  +   303d ago
Pimp You still need to have the BF4(PS3) disc to use it dummy. Good luck selling your BF4(PS3) and getting the better of Sony.

The PS4 is still a Blu-Ray device sucker and can read files from your disc.

PS4 doesn't have BC because Sony dont want you playing your old games and buying there new. how is it a games console that used to use Blu-ray but all of a sudden doesn't play the PS3 Blu-rays LOL. you got skanked. Ohhhhh pimp slapped BITCH.

joe90 stfu u stipid ass, in order for ps4 to play ps3 they need to either make an emulator fore evry single ps3 game out there or basically include the cell procesor in the ps4 wich will make it more of a pain to make both work together
cyclindk  +   303d ago
I kinda just want to get the PS3 version just to see the difference between it and the PS4 version. Get that WOW feeling I bet :)
sourav93  +   303d ago
Wouldn't it be better to get the ps4 version first, then rent the ps3 version? Cheaper than this deal, depending on where you rent it from. This, of course, is only for the reason of seeing the difference between the two versions.
cyclindk  +   303d ago
Well that AND I'd have two versions of the game. Ten bucks is nothing really for a whole game. I could probably sell it for more than that!

I wonder if this can be abused... buy 50 PS3 copies take the vouchers and sell the PS3 copies and then sell the vouchers for like thirty bucks each, which means someone would only be paying 40 dollars for a 60 dollar game.

Too much work... not enough gain.

Unfortunately you can't do that because the ps3 disc needs to be inside the ps4 system for the game to run.
sweendog  +   302d ago
where did you get this info from? when i sell my ps3 dont want to have to keep bf4 ps3 disk
Lubu  +   303d ago
Will my preorder dlc transfer over as well? And will I be able to transfer my stats on the ps4 release day, or will it be available "soon after launch"?
taiyed80  +   303d ago
now that's how to treat your customers
cell989  +   303d ago
its the digital version tho
joe90  +   303d ago
Must have BF4(PS3) disc inserted to play the update. HAHA
cell989  +   303d ago
oh hell no then, you cant even sell your PS3 copy when you start playing on PS4, Ill just get it for PS4
LoneWolf019  +   303d ago
Sooooooooooooooooo can I buy a xbox 360 version then swap it to ps4?
llMurcielagoll  +   303d ago
Nope. Don't think that's possible.
worldwidegaming  +   303d ago
Fighting gamestop has never been more dire...
DivineAssault  +   303d ago
hmmm i hope all dual gen releases get an upgrade program of some sort.. FF14 is free to upgrade so thats effin fantastic... $10 to upgrade this isnt too shabby so ill consider buying it on launch day.. Now if only diablo 3 had something like this
llMurcielagoll  +   303d ago
Now this is something other publishers should also do for existent current gen games that will also come out on next gen.

At least for a limited time even.
vigilante_man  +   302d ago
Great idea. I really like the March 28th 2014 deadline. We had heard this kind of offer would expire in December on both consoles so great news!

Do we actually have to say "Well done!" to EA? Ouch!!

For many who plan to get a PS4/XB1 at Christmas or the new year what a great offer..

*Edit: Oops - I am guilty of not reading the article! Just read that the 360 version only applies to December 31st. Hope that is only for Gamestop purchases meaning 360 owners can buy from elsewhere and have until March 28th to trade up!!
