Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Gets The Cross Buy Treatment On PlayStation

Here’s some rather big news this evening as Activision has confirmed that Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be available as a Cross Buy title on PlayStation. It looks like this will be restricted to the digital versions of the game with no vouchers in physical editions, but if you do buy either the PS4 or PS3 copy then you’ll get the other version for no extra cost. There is a time limit in place with the promotion expiring on March 31st 2015, which gives almost a six month window to take advantage of the offer.

The step by step guide is as follows:

  • Log into your console using the same Sony Entertainment Network Account (PSN ID) used to buy/redeem the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Digital Base Game or Season Pass.
  • Navigate to the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare content page for the version of the game you want to download.
  • Add the item to your cart and complete the transaction.
  • Wait for the download to complete.

Those who have pre-ordered the game are eligible, and the promotion also extends to the DLC including the game’s season pass. Any stats and progress upgrades unlocked will also carry over. In terms of pre-loading only the version you pay for will be available to do that, and the other version will be available to download from launch day.

  1. Very good offer. Sadly I no longer have a ps3 but if I did I would’ve done this.

  2. I was about to swap my zavvi pre order to ps3 for a discount then aswell…..

    Looking forward to the story in AW.

  3. This is just an excuse for activision to rinse every penny from its fans. .
    Who in there right mind is going to spend £60 on call of duty. What with various codes on different sites you can pick this up for under £40.I paid £35 for mine.
    And will you really play it on ps3 if you have a ps4 I know i havent put ghosts in my ps3 since I upgraded digitally to ps4? ??

    • It’s likely designed for those who just have a PS3 at the moment, and might be thinking about getting a PS4. It’s decent enough I suppose, as they’ll be able to cash some extra money through selling the digital versions, and remove the temptation for people not to buy the PS3 version but wait until they get a PS4.

      Incidentally, I don’t think it would be £60. Usually CoD digital games are £50 on the store. Not bad for two versions of the game I guess.

      • Yeah, I think its aimed at people with PS3, who will make the jump to PS4 in the near future – otherwise, who is going to play the PS3 version is they can play the PS4 version? Unless friends they play with don’t have PS4.

        Could be a good offer for some peoples’ situation.

  4. This is going to be game of the year like every call of duty has been before. The only thing that’s worrying me is if that damn evil Microsoft buy the rights to have the maps early again. It’s no wonder the xbone has only sold a few hundred consoles when Microsoft act like such bullies

    • Fanboy much? Its more or less a given that Microsoft will have map exclusivity again, they pay a hell of a lot of money for it. COD and these maps are console sellers to them. As long as Microsoft are willing to pay, Activision will be willing to play.

      Plus, i don’t see the fuss, you get them a month later, the same time as every other ps3/4 owner.

    • Has any CoD ever been a game of the year??

      Unless you were saying that it is going to be your game of the year, which is of course quite possible.

  5. Does anyone want to join my clan?

  6. Until they start making competitive prices on the store I don’t think I will ever buy from there. Seems they are always more expensive to buy digital, and once you have it you have it. No trade in like physical copys. Can’t seem to get my head around the benefits..anyone care to explain?
