PS3 --> PS4 Account Information

18 Replies 10,966 Views Created 02-04-2010

When the playstation 4 comes out, will i be able to still use my current account? And will all of my information (trophies/friends list) be carried over?

 

Or will i have to make a new ID from scratch?

To be honest, I think we all know the xbox hasn't got long left in this generation. So I think sony will just wait and see what xbox do and then just copy them when ps4 comes out

I would imagine your PSN login will be the same on the PS4, such as the forums being linked to your account.
However, this is all pretty moot if you are not likely to purchase a PS4.

the PS4 is a at least a few years off even being announced so there's no point talking about it yet.

An educated guess would say that you would carry all your ID/Trophies/Friends over to whatever new device Sony develop that hooks up to the Playstation Network (PSN). You would be logging on to that 'device' with your current PSN credentials. Not sure how PSN works on a PSP but thats your closet example of cross device PSN.

 

It would'nt bode well for customer loyalty if Sony didnt provide this service. But as stated at the begining of this post this is speculation only!

 

Hope this is more helpful that the barrage of p****** taking.

Yeh, I would of thought, you could use your current account (with everything on), on the PS4.

It seems it will, but if Ghaki streaming your old collection to you probably won't be free.
All the free to play games coming out are at arms with SONY about you having to have a PS Plus subscription to play multiplayer. It seems like the next generation is going to be very expensive.
Look at Call Of Duty Ghosts price on the next gen! £89.99, then you will need the PS Plus Subscription £39.99, and then it's another £50 for the DLC. So for one game plus the cost of the hardware £450, your looking at £625 ish for one years worth of play on one game.

yeah, not a fan of the whole paying for PSplus just to get online gaming. Its the same as xboxlive, paying for a subscription. I may just see - I could just play the game without multiplayer. But we'll see how that goes coz the game developers could easily take all their games to be played mostly online. 

I'm going to read up more about that whole thing, but its frustrating. Feels the same as when I found Singstar on my XMB - out of my control and annoying. The people guiding the whole show are definately not thinking about the gamers. Or if they are, a very small majority of gamers.
