Hopefully Microsoft will match Sony offer. That you can preorder the PS4 version and get the PS3 version free. In the Xbox you have to buy the 360 version and then you can get the XB1 version.

That's a big disadvantage since you can't preorder in the 360. So you'll have to wait until November 4th, buy the 360 game and wait for the XB1 to be available.

How does the "Day Zero" early access work if you pre-order a physical copy of the game?

Anyone ever preorder a digital game off the Xbox one. Do they charge now or when the game officially rolls out?

I think they charge you immediately. Because the game starts downloading right away.

Last week I preorder the Korra game and Halo, both were charged immediately, I had some credit. And both started downloading right away.

While still a juggernaut, the CoD series has been in decline (both in sales and ratings) over the last few installments. I wonder if this one will continue the slide or not.

Best Buy says they will have midnight launches on November 3rd for the Day Zero edition. You can see what stores are participating here.

I traded in a copy of Ghosts on the XB1 for $22 (w/GCU membership), and the $10 off coupon Sunday. I think my daughter is trading a 360 version for a coupon too this week.

I bought a 360 copy of Ghosts from Gamefly for $4 (using an about-to-expire coupon) just to get the $11 trade-in credit and $10 coupon for the next-gen version.

I'm definitely waiting for reviews from the community before buying this one. I passed on Ghosts after the bad word of mouth I was hearing. I'm still not sold on all the futuristic aspects of the new version.

Ghosts was pretty terrible. I still have high hopes for this one. Looks to be a much better campaign, more interesting weapons and using a next-gen engine this time.

If you have a copy of Ghosts for next gen and GCU, it would essentially cost only $6 + tax to upgrade to AW.

$48 total cost - ($20 trade-in + $2 10% bonus) - $10 off coupon given for trade-in - $10 Reward Zone certificate for pre-order = $6

Makes me really regret buying a digital dual-license copy at launch of the XO

That is why going fully digital will likely never happen for me. That along with the massive amount of bandwidth it takes to download entire games.

A pretty long and lengthy article about Call of Duty, the history, Sledgehammer Games, Activision, and making Advanced Warfare. Features like this are one of the reasons that I do like Polygon.

Is the $20 trade-in only if you pre-order or is that just a promo going on this week?

Trade in did not require pre-order. It was in last week's ad, though it looks like the same trade-in value is still active. When you trade in the game it prints out a single-use coupon to save $10 on CoD AW. Does not require a pre-order, but you'd be wise to pre-order it anyway to get the Day Zero edition and the $10 RZ certificate.

I see the trade value is still $20. Are you saying you still get the $10 off coupon if you trade in ghosts this week?

Or $60 for Ghost and Advanced via digital game share and I keep both forever. I've gone all digital this gen and its been great.

"Forever" is a relative term.

Since the value held after the end of the last week, I certainly assume so. That's how it worked with Madden 25 -> 15 upgrade as well.

You mean sharing your digital purchases with some other person and splitting the costs with them? That opens several other cans of worms.

Yup, been sharing with my best friend since the early PS3 days, but I don't want to derail the thread.

Ive been trying to catch up on playing Ghost before this comes out. Damn backlog!

I believe the website said the deal and value is good through this week.
