Sounds logical.

Battlefield 4 is one of the upcoming cross-generation titles, which means it'll be available for both the current round of consoles as well as the next-gen systems. However, what if you got the game for the PS3 or Xbox 360, and then later picked up the PS4 and Xbox One (and the PS4 version of BF4)?

See, your accumulated play stats wouldn't carry over…or would they? According to a Tweet on the official Battlefield Twitter account, developer DICE is looking into the possibility of "cross-gen-ing" those stats, which is good news for the fans.

"We've heard reports that players would like their stats and progression to transfer from current to next-gen in #BF4. We're investigating."

That would make the transition a whole lot easier, wouldn't it? Of course, we'd assume most consumers would be smart. They wouldn't buy BF4 for the PS3 or 360 if they knew they'd be getting one of the new machines relatively soon, right? Still, EA has announced that their new sports games (specifically, Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14 ) would have carry-over stats between the two generations. Might as well step up, DICE.

Battlefield 4 is set to release on the PS3, 360 and PC on October 29. It's likely that the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be launch titles for those systems, but no official date has been set.

one thing i really want to see on next gen games from now on, cross platform saves.
so many times ive bought a game for one platform, than wanted to continue on another but couldent because i couldent be f*cked starting all over again.
portal 2 did it, so why cant everything else?
skyrim perfect example, theres SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many mods out for it, and i cant wait to try it when my occulus rift arrives, but cant be f*cked doing so because ill end up loosing all my stats.

if this happens, im sure theyll tie it to premium membership though. i hope this happens though since im getting bf4 on ps3 first. dunno when ill get a ps4 yet. but 400 for system, 50 for plus, 60 for second game, and another 50 for premium would be a huge purchase. im seeing myself play bf4 on ps3 for a while. i could care less about graphics and player count difference.

They can't really justify that at all.

You just spent $60USD buying the PS3 version, then you go and spend $60USD on the PS4 version. THEN have to pay an additional $10 to transfer your stats.

That wouldn't fly with consumers.

My question is it going to run at 60 or just 30 fps like it did on PS3?

My cross-gen question.

WILL online games have cross-gen play.

Games like COD or BF4, and eventually Destiny. Will I be able to play people on the PS3 from my PS4?

If not, I might not be able to have much online fun for the next year. With the new generation having a relatively small install base for the next year at least.
