I'm sure this has been mentioned somewhere in that giant topic over there about the PS4 release, but if I was to do this, will the things I have on PC Stay on PC? Or will they be Literally transferred over to the PS4 with everything of PC deleted?

It's an account COPY.

Basically when you do it, you have 2 accounts: a PC and a PS4 account, both of which have all the same gear, items, frames, etc (though platinum and clan stuff isn't transferred). You keep your PC account's progress, and from that point onward your PS4 and PC account progress independently from one another.

Basically the account copying doesn't do anything to your PC account.

It makes a copy of your PC account, and transfers it to the PlayStation 4, excluding your clan (your keep Clan weapons) and Platinum. Nothing gets deleted.

 

To make it simple, your current account will have a copy on the PlayStation 4.

 

 

Letter13 said it better.

Also, it's a one-time copy.

So I have the PS4 version now, but how do I do the account copy. I started up the game and went through every option yet I cant find a single thing about an account transfer.

Would you be able to change the email and information on the ps4 copy, I assume the paid name change is there. To make it a family account or something. 

Also will it keep the crafting items that are "In Progress" and "Read to Claim"

I want to start playing this. I don't want to lose the $25 that i have already spent on the pc. I would prefer to play it on PS4. So I started the game and it went through the tutorial. I figured after that there would be a warframe log in. Nope. Now I feel that because i stupidly started the game. I am going to lose my ability to import my PC unlocks. I am pretty miffed about the whole thing as this was my biggest feature I was excited about. 

Maybe I just don't see where the update is posted but it would be nice to have something pinned in the PS4 forum to let us know whats up.

ok people im going to tell everyone wat iv heard so far to shed some light since DE is sitting on their asses right now....So

1. transfer to ps4 is not possible right now until versions r synced. we do not know when this will be, there is a rumor it might be on the 29th..unconfirmed.

2. there r mixed info about starting a new one on ps4 and loosing ur right to migrate, if this is the case then possibly uninstall and delete all data should fix this maybe.

3.also to copy when it is available u go to main home page then click ur name in top right corner and then click account management and this will be where to do it at once available.

Wouldn't copying lead to exploitation for the upcoming trading?

You can't yet.

 

You can find where the option will be by going to account management from the warframe home page.
