September 19, 2013 // 1:38 pm - Social Media Manager Sid Shuman made available a guide today on how to upgrade select PS3 Games to their PS4 versions below.

To quote: As announced during PlayStation's Gamescom press conference, there will be a simple way to upgrade to the PS4 digital version of four select games, for a low discounted price, when you buy the PS3 version of those games.

Here are the full specifics so you're set for November 15th - click here for full step-by-step instructions.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Watch_Dogs, and Battlefield 4 are the supported titles for this program. When you buy the Blu-ray Disc or digital version of these select PS3 games, for a limited time, you will receive an entitlement to download a PS4 digital copy of the same game from PlayStation Store when it becomes available, at the discounted price of $9.99.

Gamers who purchase a PS3 Blu-ray Disc of these four games will find a code packed into the PS3 version that they can redeem on PlayStation Store. To play the PS4 version of the game when it becomes available, you'll need to insert the original PS3 disc in your PS4 to activate and play the PS4 version, so hang onto that PS3 disc!

Gamers who purchase the digital version of any of these four games will not need to redeem a code to receive their PS4 versions. When your PS4 arrives, just look for the PS4 version of the game on PlayStation Store - it will appear on PlayStation Store on your PS4 for the discounted price of $9.99. Just purchase it and start playing!

For those of you who purchase the PS3 disc version of the games, you do not need a PS4 system to redeem your code, so feel free to redeem it as soon as you pick up your PS3 copy - you can download your digital copy later when your PS4 arrives.

But don't wait: This program lasts for a limited time. You'll need to redeem your code and make the purchase before January 31st, 2014 (for Assassin's Creed IV and Watch_Dogs), March 28th (for Battlefield 4), or March 31st (for Call of Duty: Ghosts) in order to participate.

the new price of the PS4 game will be 59.99 so if you know you will be buying one of those games... wait and save 10$ or wait 2 years after the PS4 is out and get the games for 10$
