According to the article It looks like for some cross gen games like Yakuza: Like a Dragon, PS4 saves would not work on the PS5 version.
Maneater is the same way and it depends on if the game has a full ps5 version or just upgraded graphics for next gen. If it's a new full version of the game, it also gets a new trophy set, hence the reason game saves won't carry over.
This is accurate. A fully remastered game with new trophies does not carry the save file over. EDIT: I have to say, I don't know who hired Jim Acosta to run the editorials at Push Square but they are quickly becoming worse than Gamigbolt on these clickbaity, anti-PS4/5 articles... Like are you trying to get blacklisted from Sony?
Really this is just a different approach with the PS5 Upgrade Program and XB Smart Delivery. In PS5 upgrade you get to play the best version of your game for both PS4 and PS5 but game saves and trophies are allowed to be different. For XB Smart Delivery you have to carry the game saves and achievements to both XBO and XB Series devices. Just a difference in how the two upgrade/cross buy programs operate. There are advantages and disadvantages to both approaches.
i hope my MHunter World save work if there is an upgraded version for PS5 .....for obvious reasons lol (400 hours and still clocking)
@Darkwingsoul yakuza ok. But as the title says anything else is rumors. Imagine taking something as a rumor because thats the title. . .
Minecraft allowed last gen to current gen (ps4 edition or xbox one edition) transfers 🤔 different game versions same files. Could've been done easily for other games.
@NecrumOddBoy I have noticed that as well, so many negative articles for no reason. They can totally explain why some saves are not compatible, which has a legit reason like N4GTG said. They might as well call themselves "PressCircle" as in cancel/reject. What a garbage site they have become.
@dark I don't know where he's from, but here in the US I've had many people try and tell me things like "everything is opinion and nothing is fact because of who says it". Crazy times
@Yournamehere I like how you call a blog post an article. Like any of these so called journalists actually went to journalism school
Well that's good. It would be horrible if they didn't carry over for any old game. I plan to play all my PS4 games on the PS5 this time around (unlike PS2 to PS3)because it'll be a huge step up from the launch PS4. Plus my system is spitting discs back out at me and having something that works better with my 4K tv is going to be great
This kind of thing doesn’t matter to me at all. If I’m gonna play an upgraded version of a game, I want to play it start to finish to fully experience everything new
wouldn't you rather have the option to continue where you left off? then if you wanted to start over just hit new game? I just don't see how the only option of starting over is in any way better.
This is true for me on most games, but I hope this is not the case for the Witcher 3 upgrade. I have 200+ hours in that game, and while I would consider upgrading for NG+, I do not find starting over to be worth it for me. I can't see myself putting another 200+ hours just to get where I am currently. Not with all of the new games that are coming in 2020 and 2021.
That's fine. But it should still be an option. Sony heavily pushed cross-buy and cross-save, and it seems like they just don't care anymore.
Great, Razzer, Sony is supporting it in MM. Compare that to when they were pushing for practically every game to support it. I know you can tell the difference.
lol...I simply posted a link. No arguments or rebuttals. A link. Seems you can't tell the difference.
This means I can double platinum Yakuza 7 me like :)
I wish N4G would bring back the voting down of lame websites. Pushsquare and a handful of others would be gone. They're no better than CNN. Clickbait titles based on "rumors" or outright lies to get traffic.
Sony is really doing a great job with this....
I know backwards compatibility is a big deal for some people but I'll be playing PS4 games on my PS4. Yes PS5 might speed stuff up but it's not why I buying PS5. I'm buying PS5 to play PS5 games.
Same here. My PS5 will replace the PS4 Pro in the living room which will then replace the launch PS4 in the bedroom. Just gotta transfer all of my fiancées game saves to the Pro (she’s pretty much just plays Sims 4 and Skyrim)
Honestly, I wouldn't expect it to work on the PS5. It's a different save structure on the PS5, I'm pretty sure. Yes, the save could be stored on the cloud, but the formatting is probably completely different. If a single game was able to bring it's ps4 save data to PS5 and actually work, I would be very impressed.
Sony hasn't talked about anything with the UI or OS yet. We know from the other platform that it's the same OS and UI, and Smart Delivery handling cross-gen compatibility. Sony also said (as mentioned above) that PS4 Miles Morales' saves will transfer to PS5, so their dismissal of cross-gen (despite embracing it last-minute) is proving to be quite the conundrum...
It seems like Sony is intent on snatching defeat from the jaws of victory at the start of this generation. Almost everything about their policies seems to be more on the anti-consumer side. And their console design, with how it will affect noise, thermals and the 10.3 Tflops of FP32 performance, is going to be interesting, but from what I'm seeing, it doesn't look too good. The fact that nobody has a PS5 to review, is rather concerning at this point in time.
Oh nice bringing up totally OT made up drama, that really lends credibility to your arguments.
I'm ok with everything that's launching immediately having to restart from scratch I can hold off on getting to far into watchdogs for two weeks but if you make me restart cyberpunk in 6 months I'm rioting
People expect too much to be honest. Complaining about the smallest things like save files and “remasters” that first launched a few years ago. Maybe it’s just me but those are so far down my priorities list lol.
Well dam. Looks like we will have to play them again all the way through then.
Dam, that was a fear of mine that these games on the backend would be viewed as new titles and saves would not carry over. Just ran into to that a bit ago with Witcher 3.
since when did rumors turn to real? lol
Fake news again.
Not good at all when the competition is doing it ok.
