Why? It's on a fckin' servers! If someone is willing to buy one game two times, this should be guaranteed.

It wont support cross gen save maybe cuz PS3 will have 24 players and PS4 will get 64 players....
JKelloggs  +   368d ago
How will that at all be a contributing factor?

But the levels are saved in the same way. Match modes don't affect how you level up.

That doesnt mean there wont be servers that support 24 players. Why not allow PS4/PS3 or Xbox1/360 players to have cross platform play in lobbies that support 7th gen consoles.
solidt12  +   368d ago
It won't support it because it's a different game that's why. Has any multiplayer shooter ever done that? Why is this even a article. What dummy would even expect this.

shadowwizard above apparently. He fails to realise that there is maybe a difference between 24- and 64-player games and the impact that may have on the leaderboards.
shadowwizard  +   368d ago
Sure, fair point with stats and leaderboards, but when you invest some heavy time into the game on one platform, they should at least allow you to get unlocks from last-gen, to next-gen.

FIFA 14 Ultimate Team is cross-gen and all the stats will carry over along with cards, players etc.

Considering we have Ps vita's Battle Royale and 3DS's Monster Hunter 3 you would expect the next jump to be cross generation.
Alexious  +   368d ago
I'm assuming there is a technical reason for this....

Still, it may mean that those who have a good PC will go directly with that route.
Ray186  +   368d ago
So you want all of your progress in an older game to carry over into a new game. Yeah, good luck with that.
onyoursistersback  +   368d ago
Not only a newer game...but a hole gen!! Hahaha
SeanScythe  +   368d ago
Not BF3, they are talking about BF4 on PS3 or 360 transferring saves to the PS4 or XBone.

Really what part of what I said could you disagree with? If you disagree with that you are a moron, because you can't understand what the hell is going on.

Well honestly it's servers. Systems crash all the time without gamesaves, that data, for all unlocks and information is stored on their servers.

I figure it would be too much of a pain to have the servers update that way. So I am cool either way, will still be buying it on PS3 & PS4.

This is just common sense.

I wouldn't want to get this for my ps4 on launch day just to hop into a game and find colonels everywhere. This is done to make sure it stays fair at launch and it isn't just a bunch of people who've had the game for weeks dominating people who just got it.

Depending on the gap release between ps3 versions and ps4 would be the deciding factor for me.

I don't want to play on the ps3 for over a month and earn tons of stuff then have to re earn it in a month once ps4 comes out :/

But it all depends.

This just simply means now that ill rent bf4 until ps4 comes out and just get a bearing then I can go try hard once it comes out on ps4

You just gave me a great idea. Thank you good sir.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   368d ago
Np bro anytime :P

See you guys on the battlefield

Btw I will be recruting for bf4

Was a top 3 clan in bf3
(Identity) only clan that beat us on a constant basis was QxD

Let me know if interested
Wagz22  +   368d ago
I think your missing the point. Its not that your bf3 stats won't transfer over to bf4. But if you buy lets say the ps3 version of bf4 to play with some friends that don't want to get ps4. And you buy a ps4 version to see how it plays on next gen, they won't transfer.
Fishy Fingers  +   368d ago
It's a new game, why would you want BF3 stats carrying over anyway? New game, new stats. I guess if you pick up a current gen version, then a next gen version later it might be annoying, but I still wouldnt expect it to carry over.

The first 6-7 months for most of my friend and me are about unlocks. Transferring them takes away the friendly competition.
killswitchmad  +   368d ago
Why are people expecting all this cross gen stuff?

First it was party chat on 360 and Xbone, now this...

It's never happened in the past so why now?
qu1ckset  +   368d ago
Sucks but not the end of the world, I'm getting b4 for both PS4 and PC
sigfredod  +   368d ago
Disapointing, if they wanted they could do it is just they are unwilling, if your psn user will transfer to you ps4 along with all you trophys, of course i want that my rank and stats from BF4 on ps3 to be transfer to BF4 on PS4, but oh well is EA so no surprise
ceedubya9  +   368d ago
I was only getting the next gen version. Shouldn't be too much time between current gen and next gen releases for the game. I'd rather just wait.
teezy  +   368d ago
I wouldn't have expected the saves to cross over anyway.
Normally you just buy the game on the platform you wish to play it on and that's it.
