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.
