I'm still confused Mr_Shade :p

If I was to pre-order the PS3 Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag™ - Deluxe Edition from the PlayStation Store for £63.99 that contains the following content:

- 3 Singleplayer missions
- Exclusive Sony missions: 60 mins of Gameplay with Aveline
- 5 Singleplayer Ship Customisation items
- 4 Singleplayer Weapons
- 4 Singleplayer Costumes
- 2 Multiplayer Costumes
- 4 Multiplayer Titles
- 2 Multiplayer Relics
- 4 Patron pictures

Would I then receive all that content on the PS4 version for the £9.99 upgrade fee?

If so then I'm all over it :)

What I'm curious about is how the XBox version will work. If you play it for the 360 will your save games migrate over to the XBox One? If not than why even bother buying the XBox 360 version knowing you are getting it for the XBox one?

Um, the person asked which console to get cause they ONLY want to play AC. Why pay £100 more? They never asked for an explanation and i'm not an idiot. I answered the persons question. What the £100 is for makes no difference, they wanted to know what console to get, I told them.

I play through my games multiple times as well. However, I do like to keep game saves so when I finish I can go back and mess around without having to play through the whole game again. If my game saves don't migrate than it's really useless to buy the game for the 360 if you are going to get it for the XBox One.

I guess I'm just more into the gameplay and chalenge than you all, in the sense I enjoy it to the point loseing my progress doesn't bug me so I am more than ok with haveing to play through again. I mean like SCB has just been out about 2 months and I have beat it and restarted it 12 times playing only on perfectionist.

Unless you buy it digital on ps3 in wich case you dont have anything to sell.

Do you know what its for? I know the disc is for basically saying you own the game, but is it a one time activation to download the PS4 version, or do you still need the PS3 disc in to load the PS4 version and play it?

What I mean is, after you use the PS3 disc for verification to start the PS4 download, can you then sell it?

You need the disc in to play the game - as far as I am aware.

I'm sure this will be clear when the offer goes live.


My understanding of the offer from Sony, is to allow an easy step up to PS4 - not to give games away for £9.99, so they might expect you to keep the original?

if you want to play in different locations - you would need two copies anyway before the offer..?


If you want to play PS3 / PS4 - at the same time, you may have to buy another PS3 copy - [or just buy the PS4 retail?] however like I said, the official stance on it, will come from Sony.

Hi everyone, my first post here :)
I wanted to ask about the upgrade. I plan to get ps4 by the end of the year, but the deadline for upgrade is way before that - if I redeem my code from ps3 version before the deadline, will I be able to download ps4 version after the deadline? Also, when I do upgrade - will I be able to still play the ps3 version, or will it just become the ps4-only version?

best to ask Sony support about the length of the offer, if it's not listed on their page?

Welcome to the forums :)

The only deadline I am aware of, is the use of the code - once it's registered it may be on your account forever - however you will have to check with Sony PSN support.


The PS3 disc, should still be useable in a PS3 console, should you have one else where, however you do need the disc in the PS4 to play AC4 via this offer.

10-16-2013, 06:05 PM
Thanks for the reply :) I'm gonna ask sony about details.
As for the "you do need the disc in the PS4 to play AC4 via this offer." I'm aware of that. I was just wondering if it will work on both consoles after the upgrade (I hope it will), or if it will work only on one of them.

EDIT: Found answer to one of my questions on sony's website, both versions will work. Now I only need to ask them one question :)

Confirmed with sony that it will be possible to play on both consoles after the upgrade. I thought that would be logical, since (as you said) the disc remains the same, but wanted to doublecheck it anyway.
As for the second question, it seems I'm the first person who asked about it, so they told me to give them some time to figure it out :rolleyes: Once I get the anwser (they told me it should take about a week) I'll post it here in case anyone else is wondering if it would be possible to get the discount on ps4 version a bit later :)

Cheers for providing a definitive answer Mr_Shade, I was tempted to use the upgrade option but after much consideration and with all the uncertainty regarding what will carry over I plumped for the Black Chest Edition for the PS4. Sure I'll have to wait a month but I plan on taking my time and soaking up the higher resolution, next gen prettiness :p

Wait, so if we get some in-game stuff in buccaneer edition or black chest... does it carry over or not? I'm confused. Is the content from those editions "Special Edition additional in-game content" or "pre-order content"?


EDIT:
Also, I got answer to my previous question.
IF anyone wants to get the discount for the upgrade, but is not planning to get the ps4 before the deadline for the upgrade program:
it is possible to redeem the code and buy the discounted game through ps store on pc. Then, once we have ps4 - it will be waiting in our downloads list.

Only content as listed will be available on the digital upgrade - it's the special edition of the game, any other content won't transfer, as it states.

The PlayStation®3 saved games, trophies and individual downloadable content, other ULC and pre-order content will not be carried across. However, owning the Season Pass on PlayStation® 3 will grant access to the corresponding downloadable content on PlayStation® 4.

The OP states the upgrade codes can be redeemed until March 31st, 2014 at the top but at the bottom of the post it says January 31st, 2014. The Playstation Blog lists January 31st so which is correct?

I believe the error was made on both sides - since we did both originally say 31st March - the correct date is the 31st January 2014.

So, please be sure to redeem any codes ASAP - this also goes for the Avaline missions, since they also have an expire date.:)

Hi

ALL retail versions of the PS3 disc should come with the code - it's an offer from Sony, as well as Ubisoft.

The time restriction is on redeeming the code - nothing more - so please make sure to redeem the code ASAP - this will then update your PSN account to allow you to purchase the PS4 game, at release for the reduced price.


You redeem the code on PS3 - via the PSN store - as per the instructions in the first post!

All content codes have an expiry date - the Aveline one does too - so make sure to redeem all of the codes, even if you don't plan to download / play - so you are sure of not loosing content!

I hope this is clear?

So it is only the code that expires - nothing else? So if I were to redeem this code before January 31st 2014, but did not have a PS4 until after January 31st 2014, the game will still be playable and will not expire?

Thanks.

I have asked sony (in Poland) and they said yes, the discount expires as well. I asked this because I'm not gonna get ps4 before the deadline - but they said that it can be bought on ps store via pc and wait in the download list for when I get ps4 - so if you plan on getting ps4 later, that might be the solution to keep the discount ;)

If you mean your Uplay account - then yes - you can link that.

It won't allow the upgrade offer or transfer of content though - as Black_widow points out - since you are going to a different format, however the Uplay account, can be used on any console - and will transfer any of your earned uplay reward points, just not the unlocks etc

Mr Shade, people dont read hahaha, like you said it is clearly written at the bottom of the voucher card, small but there, 'Must have PS4' etc etc (in my case as I use Sony not horrid MS) :D

Hello Mr_Shade,

I saw it may have been asked already I am sorry if it has been. I am in the US so hopefully you can still help me out. I bought the PS3 Gold Edition on PSN. The Gold edition is the AC4 game and session pass with all of the DLC that comes with it. I saw that if you bought the season pass you will be automatically upgraded to the PS4. As well, the season pass will transfer. In that case one is to believe that I have everything that the PS3 has on the PS4. By saying that I mean of course the game and the season pass, but also all the things that the pre order PS3 copy had like the 3+ hour game play, and the Aveline Pack and such. Is this all correct?

Hi as listed in the OP, the upgrade edition is:

the Aveline exclusive missions
Special Edition additional in-game content: Sacrificed Secrets: Recover Captain Drake’s lost treasures, including golden flintlocks and cutlass when exploring the exotic island of Sacrifices.
Captain Kenway’s Legacy: Additional Single & Multiplayer items.


The season pass carries over too, so you only buy it once - if you have it on PS3 - you get the season pass on PS4 for free.


You do need to pay for the PS4 upgrade offer, unless already part of your bundle, just so others are clear.

Then, the voucher and the purchase do need to be complete on or before this date.

Indeed - The PS3 disc will still work.. However you do need it to play the PS4 download version - The PS4 uses the PS3 disc for checking your entitlement to play :)

So, remember not to lend it out, if you wish to play AC4 on PS4 ;)

So I'm standing on the exact spot where the "Matched Golden Swords" chest is supposed to be and it's not there so clearly it looks like the Limited Edition DLC that I had with the PS3 version did not transfer to the PS4 version when I did the 10$ upgrade. How can I make sure that it is transfered properly?

Mr Shade,

I've come across a few problems upon playing AC4 from PS3 to the PS4. The DLC bonuses which you've mentioned above did NOT carry over to my PS4 account. It says that I have purchased and installed the Season Pass, however the only change/items that were given to me, which were the bonus costumes, ship customization, etc. Could this be something you could help me with? I would greatly appreciate it.

On the other hand, I've come across some glitches on some game modes, wolfpack specifically. But I will post those on a different thread most likely.

Hope you can help, thank you and all the best on such great work!

Hi,

Only the DLC listed - will carry over - they should be part of the Special Edition download:

Sacrificed Secrets and Captain Kenway’s Legacy

Any items in the season pass - you may have to download again from the additional content menu, as you did when you first got the season pass.


If you have items from the season pass missing - or the items from the Special Edition, please contact support.

I got me PS4...Eventually got to the store...Redeemed the code...Aaaaaand...

Nothing...

Apparently it's unavailable...It's not the only thing on the store that's listed as unavailable...But nevertheless, is the only thing I want that is unavailable...

Anyone else having trouble?...Or is it just me?...Any hints?...

I'm assuming that now I've entered the code it's void now, so hey-ho...

Anyways, cheers and all...

Right, I got a reply (Kind of) from Sony support, saying the following:


Hi James,
Thanks for your e-mail about PlayStation 4 (PS4).

I can see from your e-mail that you'd like some information about the PlayStation 3 to PS4 game upgrade promotion. More information about this can be found here (http://uk.playstation.com/ps4upgrade/).

I hope that this information is useful. Should you have any further queries please call PlayStation Support on 0844 736 0595, quoting reference 3472885, where one of our team will be happy to help you. You’ll find our opening times below, however you might find it easier to speak to our team during our quieter period between 11:00 and 15:00. Calls to PlayStation Support cost 4p per minute from a BT land line however calls from other providers and mobile operators may vary.

Thank you,

Charlotte
PlayStation Support


So pretty much a non-answer, but the link they provided me http://uk.playstation.com/ps4upgrade/ (http://uk.playstation.com/ps4upgrade/) says " simply redeem your code, then download your digital copy when your PS4 system arrives." .So nothing about a download date, so I'd assume that as long as you redeem the code before 31st march 2014, you're good to go.

@JamJar502: Thank you. :) Lol, that's usually the case. :p Well, it does sound like it doesn't matter as long as you've purchased it. So... I purchased it today. Now, only time will tell.


For anyone wondering if you can still play the game in your PS3 after purchasing the PS4 digital version, the answer is yes:


Will I still be able to play on the PS3 version once the PS4 version has been activated?
Yes. The PS3 game will continue to function on PS3.

I'm probably going to buy it in a few days time, but as you said, time will tell. At least it isn't another £40 or something stupid. If it doesn't work by the time I've got a PS4 the PS4 version of AC4 would have dropped in price anyway.

Hello everyone,

First, Im sorry if my english is bad. Maybe you can help me, I bought the AC4BF disc for ps3 and purchased the season pass and some of the "time saver dlc" the collectibles, activities and resources. When I upgraded my game for ps4 system, I get the season pass and its content to download but not the times savers I bought before. They appear as if I didnt purchase them. Do I have to buy them again for ps4? thank you very much.

Slight question, say I got the PS4. And instead of upgrading I got the game as a retail copy and a gift, will the season pass also carry over?
