umm ground zeroes will launch on both gens but only one gen gets a disc version, at least here in america.
Nyxus  +   292d ago
For now, but that may change. The upgrade program is just for digital PS4 games anyway.
sashimi  +   291d ago
No, The upgrade program is for both Physical and Digital games. Why you talking about stuff you know nothing about.
_FantasmA_  +   291d ago
Its for physical and digital son. Go to your room, you're grounded for lying.
Yodagamer  +   291d ago
I believe Nyxus was referring to the ps4 version being digital only regardless of the ps3 game being digital or physical. Edit: saw his later post explaining it.

I can't believe all of these people, who are so quick to chastise, can't even be bothered to read what you wrote properly.

Unless they're getting a physical copy of whatever PS3 game they're upgrading for the PS4 instead of a digital copy-- then I'd like to know how they do that.

If not? Go back to elementary school and get some goddamned reading comprehension, you barely-literate jerks.

sashimi and _FantasmA_ you guys are straight up rude. It's one thing to argue a point, but you do it like 12 year old boys trying to assert some kind of pre-pubescent dominance. Nyxus' later comment clears up what he was saying. If it is confusion, it's based on what he heard from the PS Blog. When dealing with multiple regions it can sometimes get confusing. You can correct that confusion without being jerks.

I'm glad they are keeping this going.

As great as it is, I want my PS4 games in a disc.

You can start by looking at this petition:

@ sashimi: This is from the official PlayStation Blog about the program: 'Get the PS4™ digital version of select games for a discounted price when you buy the PS3™ version.'

The PS3 game can be a disc, the PS4 game will be digital. Which is what I said. Try again.

Here is to really praying a psychical edition of MGS 5 GZ comes to the US especially a limited edition.
KingDustero  +   291d ago
I honestly don't know why everyone is making such a big fuss about GZ being digital only only on nextgen in the US. I agree having a physical game to hold and display is nice. In the end though the game is just installed on our HDD either way, one just requires a disk to be in the system.

To me this isn't a problem at all.
medman  +   291d ago
It isn't a problem for you until something happens and it becomes a problem...such as the network going down or your data becoming corrupted. Or how about simply being able to trade it back when I'm finished with it toward the purchase of another game? I do that quite often, many times getting back 30 or 40 bucks depending how long I've kept the game. Can't do that with a digital copy, so that's money out the window and fewer games I can buy. That is not the future to me.

PS4 does not play off the disc. So it wouldn't matter if the network was down or if your drive was corrupted or if your file was corrupted. Reinstall city! Sucks considering the large file sizes. Essentially the disc is the game key.
The ability to trade your game is the only perk to having a physical copy.
admiralvic  +   291d ago
@ Dirtnapstor

You need to use some common sense.

Even if the PS4 doesn't play off the disc, the disc is still used to install the data. This is important, because the disc will make the game completely playable regardless of it reading from the disc or not.

The big issue people have with digital games at the moment, is the lack of security. If your network is slow or the network is down, then your games won't work unless you've already downloaded them. Also, given the size of "next gen" (or if it safe to say current gen now?) games... you can quickly fill a HDD (even an upgraded one).

Now with digital games, replacing something like Killzone (a 30+ gb game) will take you at least an hour to download. With the disc? 10 minutes tops.

There are still many advantages to having physical games beyond resale value.
dcj0524  +   291d ago
And what happens if the disc scratches. Exactly.
Z_-_D_-_3  +   291d ago
There's also the fact that it's not even a full MGS experience to begin with, simply a prologue.
MrSwankSinatra  +   291d ago
so then why is japan getting a physical release if it isnt a full MGS?
ALARM-clock  +   291d ago
Is many parts of the world there still isn't reliable internet access, and in some cases, no PSN support. A lot of big fans will miss out on next gen versions without physical copies.
BoNeSaW23  +   291d ago
May have to get this sooner than later now.

I really wish Diablo 3 would have had a upgrade option. I know half a dozen people waiting for the PS4 version.
STEWIE_PLAY_PS4  +   291d ago
Um release date?
ooquis  +   291d ago
Kojima needs to get back to his roots,his desire to be the best and sadly i think he lost the plot.....he is losing a big fan.
ground_beef  +   291d ago
What I really don't understand is that how come the ps4 can read a ps3 disc for the upgrade thing, and not be able to read it for playing. I mean if a system is capable of reading a disc, then it should be able to play it. Someone please explain that to me, am not really tech savvy when it comes to hardware engineering.
