@Banksie - I'm jealous mate, I haven't put a pre-order in on a PS4 yet so probably will not get one until Xmas.

@Black_Out - I think one of the BF3 guys found a similar deal in the US. Might have been Bestbuy?

Taken from Battlelog Top Stories...

We want to make it easy for BF4 fans to upgrade from the current generation of consoles to the next generation of entertainment. That’s why today we are clarifying the offers that will make the transition effortless, saving you time and money. Read on for the full details.
On October 29, we will launch Battlefield 4 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Experience the pinnacle of this generation of gaming with best-in-class multiplayer warfare, spectacular visuals and massive destruction. A few weeks later, we’ll bring the ultimate all-out-war experience to the next generation of consoles. Battlefield 4 will be available for PlayStation 4 starting November 12 in North America and November 29 in Europe, and Xbox One starting November 19 in North America and November 22 in Europe.
Don’t wait to get into the action. You can buy the game on current-gen and benefit from up to three weeks of play time – time that can be used to rank up, giving you a competitive advantage on the next-gen battlefield. We respect the time you will invest in playing and don’t want you to lose all of your effort when you upgrade to next-gen. That is why we are making it easy to carry forward your multiplayer stats and your Battlefield 4 Premium membership. No more worrying about starting all over again. Your rank, score, K/D ratio, wins, time played, service stars, dog tags taken, vehicles destroyed, repairs, revives, squad score, accuracy and more will all transfer to next-gen consoles at launch.
Below are the details of how you can buy now and upgrade easily later. If you have any questions, please leave us a comment.
Prepare 4 Battle!

Looks like the digital upgrade option you need to activate it everytime with the original 360/PS3 disc.

Makes sure you don't sell the disc on as soon as you get the upgrade, I guess.

From what I understand, if you buy the disk version for PS3, then you'll need to load the PS3 disk into PS4 to play BF4. However, if you order digitally, as long as you keep the same acct on the PS4 then won't need to load a disk.

This has me leaning towards getting it digitally for PS3. Couple of questions though:

- anyone have issues with long d-load times on launch day? Hate sitting there with my thumb up my butt (not that there's anything wrong with that) watching a creeping progress bar. Of course, I guess the alternative is sitting there with my thumb up my butt (nttawwt) waiting for the UPS guy.

- If you use the same username on PS4 as PS3, you can still start up and play the PS3 - right? ( Hey -a guy can dream about finishing Skyrim anyway, right?)

That would make me lean towards digital too, would make sense not to need a disk for my most played game. I thought the $10 upgrade was just for retail copies, does psn offer the same deal through March? Not sure when I'll be able to pick up a ps4.

Have taken the plunge and ordered the PS3 copy as well as PS4.

Gamestop in the UK are doing a great deal. Buy the game for £39.96 and send them 2 games back from an approved list and get £35 refund!

I read on Battlelog that it was through march 28th I think.

Yeah, I found some more details today, with instructions for redeeming either disk or digital download. Sounded like from psn store you might be able to pay the $10 and buy the ps4 version even if you don't have a ps4 yet. Or redeem anytime before 3/28. Hopefully I'll be next gen before 3/28, but may be able to take advantage of the deal either way. Psn doesn't seem to offer extras like retailers do, but diskless might be worth it.

Just went in today and pre-ordered the digital via the PSN store, and lo and behold these fuckers charged my credit card for the full $59.99 already. If I'd known they were gonna do that I woulda waited till the day before launch to pre-order.
