Destiny saved games transfer cross-gen

Monday, 28th April 2014 18:07 GMT By Phil Owen

Speaking at a press event recently, Bungie’s Tyson Green said that saved games for their much-anticipated co-op shooter Destiny will allow players to transfer their saved games upward a console generation should they play the game on an old-gen console and then later upgrade.

“We’re interested in making sure that last gen character can move to next gen,” Green said. “A lot of people are going to buy Destiny on PS3 or Xbox 360 and then get a PS4 for Christmas. Don’t tell me I wasted those last 100 hours there. So we’re really interested in supporting that. Our longer-term platform plans, I couldn’t speak to right now. But we don’t want to lock people in.”

Green did not say it is out of the question at this moment that a PS3 player could move their save to an Xbox One, but he did say it is unlikely because of platform-holder restrictions.

    Something more cross-gen games have to do.

    “A lot of people are going to buy Destiny on PS3 or Xbox 360 and then get a PS4 for Christmas.”

    “Green did not say it is out of the question at this moment that a PS3 player could move their save to an Xbox One, but he did say it is unlikely because of platform-holder restrictions.”

    So good incentive for Destiny players to have PS4 as the next gen choice, regardless of them being PS3 or 360 owners by the looks of it. Nice bit of strategy for Sony, maybe a part of Destiny deal.

    Helps to read the whole story at polygon. What he’s essentially saying is that it’s up to MS or Sony if this will get implemented. His 360/PS3>PS4 comment was just an example.

    ”Speaking at a recent press event, investment lead Tyson Green said that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners could use their saved characters when they buy an Xbox One or PlayStation 4.”

    “We don’t have any plans to announce there right now. Traditionally that’s been restricted by the platform [holders] themselves. We’ll just have to wait and see where they go with that.”

    I doubt this will be a PS4 only thing (nothing says it will at this point).
