Somewhere near the end of last week, we brought you word that existing games can be “upgraded” to work on next generation consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One, but for a fee, of course. Some might think that forking out $10 to purchase what is essentially the same game with far better graphics worth every penny, and I suppose there is some merit to that considering how you might still wait for platform specific titles to arrive for the new generation consoles in the meantime. There is, however, one ample warning to take into consideration before you take that path – next generation upgrades might not allow save importing.
At least three major publishers have already issued this particular warned, where they mentioned that taking advantage of next-gen upgrade options might mean you are unable to carry forward your single player progress with you. Hardcore gamers might not mind at all since it would mean they are able to start playing from scratch again, but for those who are hard pressed for time, this might be a bummer. So far, EA and Activision representatives have already confirmed that single-player save progress will be unable to be carried should you perform an upgrade for titles such as Call of Duty: Ghosts.
