Sony has explained how it plans to offer PlayStation 3 players the chance to upgrade their PS3 copy of Battlefield 4 to a PS4 copy for £10.

According to PlayStation community manager 'Envisager', "marked physical copies" of Battlefield 4 will include a single-use code offering the player the chance to purchase a digital PlayStation 4 copy of Battlefield 4 via PlayStation Store for £10.

It isn't yet clear whether all physical PS3 copies of Battlefield 4 will include the code, or whether players will be required to pick up a particular SKU.

Alternatively, players can trade in their PS3 copy at GAME and receive £40 credit towards a physical PS4 copy.

The upgrade path from Xbox 360 to Xbox One has yet to be explained, but it's fair to expect a similar code-based system.

EA announced last month that Battlefield 4 players will be able to transfer their multiplayer progression and Premium membership DLC from current-generation consoles to next-generation consoles.

Battlefield 4 launches on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 1, with Xbox One and PS4 versions expected to follow at the launch of each console.

I think I can wait, sure, some will have a head start, but I'm a Battlefield bad-ass so I'll soon catch-up.

Yeah, on the face of it it does seem fairly open to exploitation. What's to stop somebody using the code to download a cheap next-gen copy, then selling the PS3 disc?

I wonder if the digital version will be unique to the original owner of the game or to their account or something. What i mean is will we be able to pass the code on for someone else to use.

I like that idea and I'd be tempted to pick up the PS3 or 360 version to get a digital on on the new platform, but I'd like to know if this was going to be available from all retailers or just a few?
