As soon as Sony announced their next generation console gamers were asking developers what they planned to do for cross generation support. Backwards compatibility wouldn’t be supported by any next generation console which meant the games being released as cross platform titles wouldn’t play on both consoles. Shortly after, Sony and Microsoft announced an upgrade program which allowed gamers to purchase their current generation titles and digitally upgrade to the next gen. title when the consoles were available. After pondering about the service for a few weeks, I decided to try it out with Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed IV on my Playstation 4.
After entering the upgrade code, I was greeted with a message informing me that the upgrade cost would be an easy £9.99. This took the grand total of my experiment to £21.78. Everything from here was straight forward and required me to press “yes” until the game and all the DLC packs, which would have been included, started to download.
It might not suit everyone, but for those looking to save a few pounds the deals are there to be found.
