The lights are on
If you're planning on getting an Xbox One, but want to start your Call of Duty multiplayer experience when the game launches on Xbox 360, Activision has a plan to make that possible. There are two different ways to access the $10 upgrade program, but both require that you shrug off the physical coil.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you can purchase a $69.99 dual-license digital version at retailers. This will include licenses for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions, and they'll be connected by your gamertag.
Alternatively, you can purchase the digital Xbox 360 version alone and upgrade for $10 through March 31, 2014. Both options allow you to carry your unlocks, stats, and profile from one version and back again.
The Call of Duty: Ghosts season pass will also carry over across versions. There is no cost for the upgrade, but a purchase must be made by March 31, 2014. The season pass will include four map packs, the Team Leader customization pack. The price for this is $49.99.
Activision and Sony previously announced a similar deal for the PlayStation platforms.

Our TakeEight years seems like a long time ago, but I remember being faced with the proposition of buying titles on multiple platforms. I bit on Burnout: Revenge (and regret nothing), but it's nice to know that during this console transition, the choices are going to be much easier.
$10 for next-generation versions that also allow you to port your stats and profiles? That's a steal. We've come a long way in eight years, and this kind of offer is just one of the perqs.
