Rumor: PS5 to have ability to transfer PS4 save files

https://sony-ps5.com/ps5-will-have-t...fer-ps4-saves/

Taking backward compatibility to a whole new level, Sony is imbuing the PS5 with the capability to carry over save files from the PS4. So if you’ve started a game on PS4, you’ll be able to transfer that progress over to the PS5 (when it comes out) and pick up from where you left off.

Here's to hoping that MLBTS can take full advantage, enabling us to transfer franchise/RTTS files to the PS5 version from the PS4. Would be nice not to have to give up a franchise you've been running for years in order to upgrade. The functionality will be there, if the article is true.

Now if we could only get year-to-year roster transfers...

from a selfish view, and small picture rather than large I'd personally rather SDS have carry-over roster transfer over backwards compatibility

Re: Rumor: PS5 to have ability to transfer PS4 save files

Honestly this is not news. There is nothing unique about the PS5 hardware or infrastructure that would make it any different than a PS4. It's just a PS4... But better.

It's like transferring your files from an old computer to a new one. There's not going to be an issue.

We could transfer files from the PS3 to the PS4, and the PS3 was a very unique piece of hardware.

So if you had a franchise file from 13 (PS3), you could load that file into the PS4 version of 13? Would the 14 version recognize it as a carry-over?

I had no idea you could do this...

...no. 14 kicked off carry-overs and 15 was the first one to carry-over, from 14.

14 was on both. Not sure about 15, but 15 was on Vita and you could transfer your save between the two.

Save files are not that hard to bring between different platforms.

I'll be cool just to see the RTTS guys I've had since 14. Their long journeys from one platform to the next. Crossing the finish line into retirement and then blowing all their money so they can beg for jobs as bench coaches and managers.
