Are you holding off on Destiny because you have a PS3 or Xbox 360 and are thinking you might eventually get a PS4 or Xbox One and buy it on that? Bungie and Activision aren’t going to let you off so easily. They’re offering a free limited time updgrade from the digital last-gen versions to the current-gen digital versions to entice you to buy now.
You won’t have to start fresh with a new Guardian if you upgrade. Your game progress, DLC and other content will carry over, too.
But there are a couple of catches. It’s only for the digital versions. It’s “within console family,” so you can only upgrade from PS3 to PS4 or Xbox 360 to Xbox One. It won’t work if you switch from being a Sony player to being a Microsoft player or vice-versa. And the offer ends Jan 15, 2015, which is still enough time for those holding out for a new console for Christmas.
