Just had an email from Sony regarding the EU digital version.
Pre Order the Digital Deluxe Edition from the PlayStation Store and enjoy the following:
You get that from buying digitally in PStore? What the frig? Even digitally we get C-Rap lol
all we get is an Aveline Figurehead, which was made apparent to me by M.Shade, that it's some fancy piece you place on the boat. Would've been nice if it came with at least either a bonus weapon or suit as well
That is an excellent question I believe it is the same for the Xbox360 upgrade to XBONE - Well as far as I know Sony offers an upgrade from PS3 to PS4 by redeemed ($9.99) but for a digital version of AC4 only and that offer end in January 31, 2014 - I try to get info if that transfer shall include the online pass and the future DLCs, and Sony rep told me that they did not know since the game is not released yet they could be positive about the main game but could not answer for the exclusivities add-ons - Microsoft rep told me that NO you will have to rebuy the online pass for the XBONE version. Upon contacting Ubisoft the answer was they do not know and also told me that it is the responsibility of the console providers to furnish the support for those type of questions. So apparently, no one really know.

If you buy AC4 (and COD GH, BF4 & WD) digitlaly for PS3- When the PS4 version is available for preorder (like now) you can buy it for 10$
If you buy AC4 by disc (and above games^) the case will come with a (PStore,XBL) code that you can redeem to buy the game 'digitally' for 10$. but NOTE: When you do it this way, you must have the original disc IN the new console to play:
Example; PS3 disc of AC4+PS4 system+PS4 Digital purchase by Code= PS4 AC4 version. YOU MUST HAVE THE PREDECESSOR DISC IN YOUR NEW PS4 TO PLAY.
Ubisoft have released the following new information on the upgrade process:
