However, once you transfer to the next generation, there’s no going back.
Despite earlier indications that it may not be the case, DICE has recently announced that Battlefield 4 will indeed allow you to transfer your current gen multiplayer profile and DLC information into a next generation copy of the game. This means a transfer of stats and Premium subscriptions from the PS3 to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One, and comes shortly after Infinity Ward announced the same for Call of Duty: Ghosts during its multiplayer reveal.
However, the transfer of data from one platform to another can only be initiated from current gen to next gen. Players will not be able to transfer their data back and forth between the platforms. So think twice before really deciding if you’d like to play Battlefield 4 on the PlayStation 4 forever with enhanced graphics, 64 player support and at 1080p and 60 frames per second.
Battlefield 4 is scheduled to release on October 29th in North America and November 1st in Europe for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, with releases for PS4 and Xbox One due in Q4 2013.
