I been playing warframe since its release on console in 2014, this game has progressively become one of the top 5 best games for me due to its immense amount of content and its interaction with players and even developers. overall, this game is dope tbh but I recently transferred to pc because I find the new consoles undesirable to say the least and it sucks that I cant transfer the items I have on ps4 to pc, like I fully understand why I cant cross save the currency (im good at working the market so getting the platinum back isn't a problem for me personally) but I don't see why I cant have my items back seeing how the items are owned by Warframe and not Sony or its competitors. i really want to get back in warframe especially with octavia prime coming out but there are certain items and mods i cant obtain anymore due to certain events and inflation in prices and i just dont have the time like i used to play this game to get almost everything back. this game is a amazing game that can be played in a leisure and casual manner which i why i love it tbh and the community is dope, i meet mostly chill people who enjoy playing it as well. i hope any developer sees this and i hope it can become trending among the community because i feel like this is something that kinda should be available for pc cause i see that people can cross save from sony or microsoft to nintendo so it should make sense to cross save to pc seeing how this a predominantly a pc game. this is no shade towards the developers cause ya been doing a great job keeping this game active throughout the years, i just want to play it again

Hello,

About the Cross-Play or even Cross-Save you should ask DE. Answering the question "Why is that a problem" I can answer by giving an example.

Example: You can't own something on PC and have it on PS because it's haven't released yet.

Example 2: Event-Ended on PC and started on Console. You practically have more time than the others.

Also items are owned by Warframe and Sony, this is correct. But Sony own consoles, and it's thier call, not DE.

Hope it was helpful. Good luck and have fun, Tenno! 🐉

I'm fairly sure the only current cross-save is PS4 and PS5.  I don't think there's any inter-company option.

It sounds like the devs are trying to work out a solution but whatever they do will not be easy, especially since the markets are vastly different. Even if you can cross play without bringing your currency, the disruption to the market would cause many individuals to lose most of their value in stored up tradeables. Any decision made needs to weigh this in mind.

There was a brief period you could create a copy of your account onto the Switch, but there is no cross-save between the consoles. That would be rather hard to do since the Switch updates can sometimes take longer to get through cert and then are released after the updates on the other two consoles.

And the topic of cross-saves is brought up quite often so it's sorta in the background trending for a long time now.

Sadly licensing in videogames is never that simple. The details will be different from game to game, but the general rule is mostly "if a game is released on playstation, then sony own at least that version of the game". DE can't even release an update without getting through sony, let alone removing player's items and place them in their competitor's platforms. If it means one less person are going to quit shopping on ps store, believe that sony won't just stands by and watch.

MS and nintendo's PR made them look like good guys lately. But believe that it's never that simple.

I think it was around switch launch DE allowed players to copy their pc account to switch, because they need to jumpstart the playerbase for that console. PC is easier because nobody owns the platform.

But it's totally just a one time thing. And probably will never happen again.

And there shouldn't be. DE thought that they had a good idea, based on a good intention. But further into the project, they realized that there are just too many obstacles to overcome. People can plan, but plans can fall apart.

If it's up to DE, i think they're stupid enough to just go for it and figure out how to fix the problems as they arise. But sadly at this point it also involves way higher people on way bigger companies.

I would agree if pc didn’t get the events first. Until the last expansion, PC has always got their items first. There’s nothing on console that pc didn’t already have. And Sony only controls the currency (buying platinum) they don’t own the items that you buy with the platinum. Just the platinum themselves

Only option is to start fresh for now :) 

Nah I got like 600 hours in the game from when I was a teenager. I’m a grown adult with bills and 2 jobs. I don’t have time to play (I wish I did).

I'm sure that that's not true unless you mangle the word "own" even more than is usually done in licensing discussions.

It's true that Tencent owns DE, DE owns Warframe and Sony owns the Playstation platform, and pretty much everything else anyone has said here about anyone owning anything is nonsense for any meaningful sense of the word "own". For example Sony doesn't own all games released on the PlayStation and Sony doesn't own peoples' plat.

I would REALLY love to have cross platform progression, and I dont want to hear any BS about it not being able to happen due to limited technology, because that is a bunch of crap when other games are able to do it, look at FF14, they have cross progression and they host eveything on their servers. much like Warframe. there is really NO REASON why cross progression cannot be a thing on warframe, heck if anything it could boost sales

I think DE said themselves not to expect this soon in their most recent dev stream on feburay 26th

If not what you said, its just not a priority of theres atm. Other platforms have some catching up to do too

I know some people have played on ps4, but their ps4 crashed and dont have the funds to buy a new one. but they have a pc, but they dont want to start over. and none of the dev/mod/techs what ever you wanna call them would help. I KNOW they can transfer data, they did it once before, from pc to ps4 when it launched, so they have the fricken codes for it, they just gotta get off their ass and impiment it or edit the code

How many frickin times do we have to say this;

 

This has been asked literally thousands of times before, and the answer is always the same: DE wants to do it, but it's not gonna happen until everyone - Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo -  all agree to it. So if you want to complain, complain to them.

Also this thread's gonna get locked, like all the others.

 

PLEASE use the damn search function.

Dude, it's not happening anytime soon, and whether or not you like the so called BS, it still applies. It's got nothing to do with technology, it's got everything to do with manufacturers agreeing, ingame economy, and console exclusive cosmetics. FF14 is not warframe, so again, that's a poor example to try and use and idk why everyone seems to think that just because one game did it, means all games can.

I just have to vent. This topic is grating. I started focusing on PC, migrating from Switch, but it's harder to balance real life and the game. I'm retreading and redoing things. That's what my time is spent on. This game has become even more of a chore than it used to be and it's just harder to place it in my life as, I'm just not a youngster with unlimited time anymore.... So it's either spend money for catch up or just deal with retread while dealing with everything else. It's like the devs are just dangling this carrot (either give us an actual update or say you're not doing it at all) and laughing at us spending more cash.
