Battlefield 4 Stats Will Carry Over From PS3 to PS4

EA and DICE have confirmed that you'll be able to transfer your progress from Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 3 over to the PlayStation 4 version when it launches.

All of your earned stats, ranks and gear will carry over should you decide to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version, meaning you can continue your career in the game uninterrupted.

The PS4 version of Battlefield 4 will be out around the console's launch this holiday following the game's release for PS3 on October 29th. Buying a Premium membership for Battlefield 4 on PS3 will also entitle you to the same content on PS4.

I know Dice first said they would look into this a couple of weeks ago but I guess in light of yesterday's COD reveal they now have no choice but to follow suit.

Personally if it's only 2-3 weeks I'll wait for the PS4 version, any longer and I'll seriously consider both.

Nice. At first when I saw the headline I was like yeah but only if you're a premium member. Thanks dice for making your game more awesome.

I really don't like all this stats carrying over business.. It's a new game, everyone should have to start a fresh with the same gear and xp etc.. Now people who buy BF4 but didn't play BF3 are going to get there arses handed to them by the BF3 players who are switching over all because they will have way better weapons and gear.

I don't like it, I like the feeling when you get a new game day one and you know everyone is on the same level playing field gear/equipment wise.

@2, Just remember that means you're still going to have to buy two copies of the game. Although I suppose if you take advantage of Gamestop's trade in deal it is worth it. This actually is kind of a sweet deal now that I think about it some more.

@3, it's not stats carrying over from BF3 to BF4. It's that if you buy BF4 for PS3 and then want to upgrade to BF4 on PS4 you don't have to start over from scratch or buy all the DLC over again. Everyone is still on a level playing field when the game releases.

@3 Please do not tell me you thought that people who had stuff unlocked on BF3 automatically had them for use on BF4(a different title altogether). If thats the case, then why cant i have the gravity gun from Half Life & the Disco gun from Ratchet & Clank. I have those unlocked from totally different games also.

Doesn't matter to me because I'm waiting for my PS4 to come then I'm getting it. No way I'm buying the game twice. It's a wast of money and money that can be spent on another new game.

Just throwing this out. If you buy the PS3 version from GameStop you can trade it in when the PS4 version comes out and get the PS4 copy for $9.99

@3, are you reading the article properly? It says stats for BF4 transfers across console generation PS3 to PS4, not stats from BF3 to BF4.

Meaning if you were to play to Rank 10 on PS3 on BF4, and if you boot up the PS4 copy of the BF4, you would continue on Rank 10.

@7, you are correct, that's why know that I think about it, this is actually a pretty good deal, at least for anyone who takes advantage of the Gamestop offer.

@#8 - No, I didn't read the article properly Lol ! I sort of skim read it while at work haha. Well, stats from BF4 PS3 to BF4 PS4 carrying over is a good idea :-) Glad they are doing this, although I won't get the PS3 version anyway, I'm going to wait for the PS4 version to release and literally blow me away. Can't be doing with this 30fps nonsense anymore when I know 60fps is just around the corner.

@7 I thought that was only confirmed for Xbox titles? If it's for PlayStation as well that wouldd be great.

Thats great news and all... But WHO is gonna spend £40 for the PS3 version and then 2 months later £55 for the PS4?
I think most people (myself included) are just going to bypass the PS3 version and go straight to the upgraded version with 64 player servers etc.

This is all "assuming" EA can actually get their Origin system to work properly... that has always been a big assumption!

im going to get the ps3 version and start ranking and unlocking things legit, then when the ps4 version comes out, trade in the ps3 version for the ps4 version so at least im standing a chance in the bigger war on ps4, ive never paid for any unlocks in bf series ever

@3, Guess you don't know how to read.... Your BF4 stats from Ps3 carry over to Ps4. NOT that your BF3 stats carry over... lol.. that would be ridiculous..
