Bungie revealed today a generous digital upgrade offer for those still doing their gaming on the Xbox 360 or PS3.
Purchasing a digital copy of the game on the Xbox 360 or PS3 before Jan. 15, 2015 will net you, free of charge, the digital counterpart on the next-gen console within its family of consoles. There's no crossover, so Xbox 360 players will have to upgrade to Xbox One, the same for Playstation consoles. And, as the language states, this is a digital-only deal. And though physical retailers are likely to do their own upgrade path, nothing beats free.
Further, the upgrade applies to a variety of digital content pertaining to 'Destiny,' including the expansion passes and Digital Guardian Editions.
And worry not, for all of your stored Guardian data on the older consoles transfer up within the family as well. Bungie has posted up an FAQ for the deal, detailing just how to perform this upgrade on any of the consoles.
For all you out there on the edge of getting a new console, but don't quite have the will to put the change down, this is your way out come the game's release on Sept. 9. For now.
You can find the latest info on 'Destiny' linked from our Video Game Release Schedule.
Order the Digital Guardian Edition here for $89.99.
