Sony talks Trophy transfers to PS4, also confirms no HDMI capture at launch

Incase anyone was thinking of making a new PSN account for online gaming with the Playstation 4 and transferring their current Trophy collection, this won't be possible. Also HDMI capture for launch will not be available. (PS4)

I think they haven't confirmed/denied anything regarding changing PSN names, they did mention it's a complex process
AridSpider  +   861d ago

Microsoft has enabled their consumers to change gamertags as many times as they want since the Xbox 360 launched. Maybe even back on the original Xbox. Of course, for a fee.

Sony is now charging us for PSN come next gen - complex process or not (which i don't believe) they better figure it out. How hard can it really be.

Which is why i think we all need to start asking Sony what exactly ARE their PSN plans next-gen. We're all required to pay now but we really havent heard anything on how the infrastructure has and will improve compared to today.

And yet you can't transfer your Gamerscore over. That's worse.
jatakk  +   861d ago

What do you mean by can't transfer your Gamerscore over?

If you mean that if you change your gamertag the gamerscore isn't transferred, you are wrong.

If you mean transferring achievements/trophies and gamerscore/trophy level on the 360/PS3 between different accounts, you are right.

They have confirmed that NO you cannot change your name if your transferring it from PS3 to PS4....But that your more than welcome to just create a new ID.....Nobody lets you change your name

Please Sony don't allow people to change their names!

Everytime i'm on xbox that's all I get is a bunch of messages that all say something along these lines "hey this is blahblahblah and ive now changed my name to blahblah just letting you know" now this wouldn't be so bad if people didn't change their gamertags every other week! It's nearly impossible to keep track of who's who if you have over 5 friends.... PLEASE Sony... DON'T allow us to change our names... and if you do.. only once!
FamilyGuy  +   861d ago
HDMI capturing will be patched, there's ways around the protection that people serious about game capture should already be aware of/have anyway.

Obviously your trophies aren't going to transfer if you're making a new account, what kind of question is that?

As far as changing your user name goes, Japanese PSN accounts/users have had this ability for a long time. It's not "hard to do", it's just not implemented in other countries. The reason/reasons why could be anything but the user above me has a scenario that might be why.

I could imagine being annoyed by seeing names I don't recognize pop up on my PSN friends list because of people changing their minds so often. I know it annoyed me in WKCs 2 with a few of my friends that would change their characters names or appearances too often.

As far as I'm concerned none of this is even "news", all this has been known for a while.

Cause a problem that at most affects 3% (I assume it's well under 1%...) of the total market is the same as DRM that affects 100% of the market. Also unlike the original Xbox DRM, you had realistic and viable solutions...

1) Use the included PVR functions. No one is stopping you, just stopping you from using your own machine to get it.
2) Get a splitter. Worked on the PS3 and should work on the PS4.

Where as Xbox One was

1) Buy the system and accept it.
2) Don't buy the system and move on.

Also, even though I am one of the people with an HDPVR, I would say that you couldn't even make it into a big deal if you tried. Even when this was first rumored people just said to use the included one and shut up.

That's because no one reads the articles, just the headline lol. The restriction mainly had to do with Sony being a movie company, so they got paranoid and restricted the whole system.

FamilyGuy  +   861d ago
It's only a 180 if you say no, then change your mind to yes, or something similar. Sony is changing a standard function to be more user friendly based on request. The HDMI video capture protection is standard on all bluray players, they're going out of their way to change this standard for the fans. A 180 would be if they said "We won't be be doing/allowing this." and later changed because of backlash.

At least you acknowledge that the HDMI is a negative. True, I really don't care, but since PS Fanboys would be quick (in fact first post) to point out the same thing if it was the other way is impression of a PS Fanboy in reverse:
"HAHAHA PS3.5 sucks it will fail!! Another 180 by $Ony!! First they said there would be NO HDMI support, now they have to backtrack to keep up with Microsoft. XB1 FTW"

See how annoying that crap is??? This is why people are touring away from PS4 so fast, because it seems that MS's "no jerks" policy is all about sending them to PS4. At least what I was purposely being annoying about was based on fact...most times PS Fanboys are just spitting non-sense. It's actually true that Sony said they would not support HDMI capture at all, now reversed that policy and is doing it late. The reason you noticed that this would get trolled, is cause you are one of the biggest trolls out there and if it was the other way, you'd be all over it....if you don't like it...stop doing it.
(Respond and cry all you want, I'll never see it, I don't respect your opinion because you've proven over and over that you're just a biased fanboy that has no needs for facts)
malokevi  +   861d ago
Duh! Achievements/trophies are, and should be, tied to the identity under which they were earned. If you get a new identity, it makes sense that you have to start from scratch. Otherwise, people would be swapping trophies and selling their accounts like crazy.

That's why I've been "killing machine" since 2001/2002. So long ago that I can't even remember when the Xbox Live beta test happened.

I'm 23 years old. So 2001 was more than half a lifetime ago for me. I can say with confidence that there are very few things in my life that have been as consistent as my Xbox Live gamertag. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't proud, and that I didn't have some sort of emotional attachment to the account.

For as long as I can, I wont be giving it up. I'm hoping to bag a similar name on PSN, though I assume the pickings are slim at this point in the game.

Our government. They blocked it because some dingus thought it was a brilliant idea to broadcast a protest or some crap like that, and surprise surprise, our close-minded government blocked it (alongside

Thankfully, Livestream (my main driver for games/art) and a few others still work, but Twitch is a little crippled on my end :/

I /could/ still use a vpn to bypass the block, but doing that for the PS4 is a bit of a hassle (having it share a connection with my PC while the vpn is being used).

That's not the reason at all, it had no HDMI because of the HDCP and no component out. Sony changed their mind due to the massive consumer feedback. It has nothing to do with "rushed to market".

Yeah... Except they did not lie through their teeth and say "the feature is built into the console and cannot be removed with the flick of a switch." They just flicked the switch. Simple. I don't know about you but I tend to be more lenient when I am not lied to and tried to make a fool of.

Lied to? The original proposed features weren't removed with a flick of switch, but ultimately they were removed. Did the ability to rip all your games to the HDD so you could access them anytime and anywhere really make you feel like a fool?

My point was both companies have a way to go with their newest consoles. We can't condemn one and not the other for doing the same things. Neither console was "rushed" to market, they simply need more time to get where they want to be. Same holds true for the "180's". Both companies listen and adapt when needed. This is a good thing for gamers and the companies making consoles. Why this is constantly spun as being bad is beyond me.

Why would you create a new PSN account and try to Transfer your Trophies to it with the PS4. First of all... why would you create a NEW PSN ACCOUNT for PS4?

Lets go over the answers:

On the PS4 can we transfer our trophies from one account to another?


If i buy a ps4, do i still have my old trophies from my ps3 on the ps4? :)

you can't create a new xbl account and transfer achievements to it from your old account either on xbone. neither ms nor sony will let you do this in the future. you'll have a few different options on how your name will be displayed on ps4. you can add your real name and have it displayed more prominently than your psn. this real name and picture is seeded from facebook and if you wanted to just create a dummy fb account with the name and pic you want.

Video capture is happening, just not at launch.
I kinda like not being able to change your name.
If you want to change your name that bad, start a new account.
On XBL, people on my friends list would change their name like crazy & I'd have no clue who they were. If you have to start a new account this happens less because people will lose their precious chievos. If they do create a new account with a new name they're more likely to send you a friend invite stating they changed their name if they want you back on their friends list.
On XBL, you pay $10 to change your name. That's stupid. Why would you pay to change your gamer tag? If your not happy with the gamer tag that "you" created, chances are your not going to be satisfied with the second or third one either.
They could do it like steam and have your account name but you can add & change your nickname all the time.
Like I said, I like it the way it is now on PSN.

Do you not pay attention? Do you even know WHY it's an issue? Hell, don't you even read the other comments here?

HDCP is the reason why it's "not allowed." And that's in place to prevent people from pirating Blu Ray movies. It has the unfortunate side effect of making game capturing more difficult, but not impossible, as evident by all the gameplay videos all over the internet... including Youtube.

Yeah, Youtube. That thing you say can't be shared to from the PS4.

The same things that work on PS3 will work on PS4, and that's excluding Sony's built-in features, and the HDMI capture that won't be available at launch but WILL be coming.

Seriously, it's like you heard somebody talking about it as they walked by you and assumed that small snippet of conversation was all there was to the issue. And, just like a typical fanboy, you didn't even bother to look anything up.

No surprises here.

I would be surprised if any console supports moving trophies/achievements to a new account.

As for the HDMI capture. It takes time to devt stuff, and the console vendors have to have finalized their features by the time they started to manufacture consoles so all they are doing is bug removal now for day one firmware updates. They will move to new features after the consoles ship and have stable firmwares.

When i see that the problem is about capturing from HDMI (thing i've never wanted to do anyway), i know the console i chose is perfect for me. I don't think people is going to buy a console because it does this... or maybe the console lacks everything else. No bad news about performance or games, so it's ok, can't wait for my ps4!!!
And btw, "at launch" doesn't mean that it won't be possible in the future. Without counting that someone will come out with a sort of bypass or device that does the trick....

I want to play, and not record to strange people...
