Death Stranding PS5's release is here, and many of you are planning on using your old PS4 saves, you have one last delivery to make before you can do that.
Another incredibly lazy and ignorant move by Kojima. Let’s see how the fans spin this one….
Wait, what? How is that lazy?
I think he meant to say it's inconvenient.
Lazy, inconvenient, whatever it is, it's lame for people wanting to upgrade. It's worse than the worst case so far for PS5 upgrades in terms of manual intervention. Who wants to be stuck in the PS4 game for maybe hours longer when they just bought the PS5 upgrade? I haven't played since I beat it in late 2019, idk if there's a stuck task for me. And I'm not wasting however-many gigs of space and hours of time to be able to enjoy what I'd have spent $10 on.
@Tacoboto There's nothing keeping you from playing the PS5 upgrade. But if you want your PS4 game save to transfer over, you have to complete a mini-quest. And how exactly do you go from being bored on PS4 and to suddenly "enjoy" playing Death Stranding on PS5? It's the same game, not an expansion.
Wait, I transferred my save and never played some mini game. This is a bunch of BS right?
You’re no fun.
Ah, that time of the year ... when Kojima has again been able to convince some folks to play his mail man simulator with his "strand™" marketing. Guys with monocle will say, "hmm, you're too plebeian to fathom the gravity of the this whole endeavor. I am compelled to strike you down with err ... downvotes !"
Nobody made you played it. I think it’s silly to extend your dislike of the game genre all the way to a little quirky thing the creator did to make the save transfer process unique for his game.
Meanwhile, Insomniac Games still don't let you transfer your Spider-Man save to PS5. I'm sure someone here would gladly offer you a shoulder to cry on.
This is false, as I transferred both games' save files to PS5, and proceeded to plat both games there.
That is demostrably false. https://www.ign.com/article...
Weird because I transfered it and even had my previous trophies instantly unlocked lol
Now that I didn't know. This whole time been avoiding upgrading cause I thought you couldn't. Thanks all.
That's a fun touch for sure
We used to have Transfarring too. Bit of a shame.
Aside from being a mild inconvenience I'm really not seeing the issue here.
And just when I thought transferring game saves from PS4 to 5 couldn't get any worse...
If you have a save file worth a damn, then you have zip lines everywhere. Its literally 2 minutes or less to the closest delivery terminal, where ever you may be in the world. Certainly not a big deal, and of course almost all players will have their saves near a safe zone or terminal to begin with. Not an issue at all.
This is fake. Why do you approve this? You simply upload savefile from PS4 Death Stranding and are good to go. Took me nor more than 2 minutes to play PS5 DS with most trophies unlocked. The once that didn't unlock are the ones regarding the new items etc.
