Publishers to set their own PS3 to PS4 game upgrade prices

23 August 2013

During an interview with Digital Spy, SCE UK Managing Director Fergal Gara explained that publishers will be able to set the cost on upgrading PS3 titles to their next-gen, PS4 counterparts.

“What will happen is, the PS4 digital file will be made available on the PlayStation Store – as it would be anyway – at launch, and the PS3 discs will be sold through retail,” Gara said. “What the consumer can then do, for a premium to be defined by the publisher, is access the PS4 digital game and then provided they still have the PS3 disc, they will be able to play the PS4 version when they decide to buy the next gen.”

Activision has already confirmed that the Call of Duty: Ghosts PS3 to PS4 upgrade will set Australians back $10.00 AUD.
