Bungie has confirmed that there will be a digital upgrade option available to those who purchase Destiny on PS3 and Xbox 360. However there is a catch in that you have to be buying the digital versions of last gen Destiny, and it’s only this way will you be able to upgrade to the current generation copies for free. The free period will also only last for a limited time, with the promotion lasting until January 15th 2015.
Once you purchase the digital version, which is £49.99 on PS3 and Xbox 360 for the regular game, you’ll have the option to download the new gen version. This will only work as long as the consoles are part of the same family so no buying the Xbox 360 copy and then trying to download the PS4 version, or vice versa. Bungie also confirmed that you won’t lose access to the last gen version should you upgrade.
The studio also confirmed that your Guardian will carry over as well as all of their gear and progress stats. So if you’re buying Destiny on PS3 or Xbox 360 this deal may be ideal should you be planning to upgrade soon, as that’ll save you some money that you can put towards your new console or another game.
