but why other developers dont have such Problems?

they do it very well.

the reason other developers don't have this problem is because they made their game the same on all platforms and micro transactions (usually) don't transfer between platforms either.
The problem with warframe is not only can plat be purchased, it can be also traded so they would have to lock all plat to a specific platform, that isn't so bad.
It gets more tricky though as you notice the differences in the platforms. PC for example has 20-75% plat discounts which is amazing, while console has market discounts. which is why stuff is typically cheaper on consoles. and speaking of economy, being able to buy a prime set on one platform and then sell it on another for profit would heavily change the economy, and will make it harder to trade on one platform or another.
Then you also got Tenno Gen, on PC it is a one-time purchase of IRL money to obtain a select skin/syandana/etc., while on consoles it costs platinum and that would cause more platforms because like I said earlier, Micro-transactions usually stick to 1 platform and this would cause a problem with TennoGen as well. Plus you got the other hurtles such as convincing Sony, Microsoft, Steam, Epic Games, and Nintendo to allow this. 


In short, there are a lot of hurtles they got to jump to get cross-save to be a thing, while at the same time they got to continue working on their game so content droughts don't exist or aren't very long, or at least, that is their goal

other Games get patches same time

Alot of other games start off on everything or run on the same patches. Warframe was pc only for a while and well patches man. As far as i know de has to pay the console companies to certify patches.  Since the consoles don't want patches bricking the system.

Cross save is a option but still has tons of hurdles.

Maybe disable Platinum buying and make it buyable only on warframe Website like an central database.

Then DE maybe needs to make some rules for trading so economy dosent screw up

How and why would the console companies want that. They eould lose profits. You would need a differrent premium currrncy per platform and skins would transfer so you would have to buy them multiple times.

That wouldn't work. No business would take such s loss of profits.

cuz they have crossplay games.

OK.

What people are endeavoring to convey to you is that:

  • We all know about the benefits of crossplay.
  • The conversations on it have been had repeatedly for years.

Most of us have come to grips with the knowledge that Warframe likely won't ever have crossplay and accepted it...

That wouldn't be profitable for any business.  Theres s ton of hurdles to begin with. Taking away profits only further makes matters worse.

Cross save is the only possible option but its been on the back burner forever. So it likely won't happen.

It stinks starting over. I get it. I have my main ps4 account and an alright pc account. But it is doable.

Honestly get a cheap ps4 since the ps5 is really hard to get atm with scalpers and pretty buggy.

Plat is not as valuable on pc anyhow compared to console.

Hi,

It's been a long time that i play Warframe on my PS4, but i started moving to PC cause my PS4 is dead.

I DON'T wanna create a new account and restart, is there a way to have my PS4 account to PC ??

And if this is not possible, DE should ABSOLUTLY make a cross-save !!

No its not possible.

 

Yes it should be.

Gaijin is offering this option to all war thunder players from PS4...Unbinds account leaving a a copy on psn locked to psn but making a new copy of the account to be used on other platforms, once the process is done the accounts are no longer synced, progress on pc stays on pc vice versa. Why can't warframe do it? I played a few hundred/thousand hours of this game as well as purchases would be nice to be able to play again. 
https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/509207-unlinking-psn-bound-account/
So DE can't really keep passing the buck to Sony as it's no longer an issue you guys should be able to move promptly and make it happen :) 
Look forward to playing again.

sigh

There are technical limitations, each platform runs a differing version of the game, and updates are rolled out at varying speeds. Console accounts simply can't be "Transferred" with the click of a button, as there are game version mismatches. If you are going to push on this issue again I suggest actually reading around the web to understand why this isn't available, as opposed to repeatedly complaining about it. 

Cross-save is in the works, we just don't have a set time-frame on it. Stop pestering DE and wait, as they've repeatedly bashed you over the head to do.

If you want to play again, it's simple. Play, or don't.

Also one more thing to note, Warthunder already has cross-play. Cross-save works off of the same systems and is therefore easy to implement once you have cross-play working. However in Warframe, a very old game that hasn't been built with cross-play systems in mind, as it was made well before cross-play/cross-save was a thing, DE needs to make tons of back-end changes to the way the game operates, and that's why it takes time. They've mentioned plenty of times they're working on it but have no time-frame, simply wait and stop pestering.

I started playing on pc way back in the day but i had a really sucky laptop, so I transfered my save to ps4 when that came out. I recently got a new pc and I really want to play warframe on that, but I'd have to start all over again... I think there are a lot of people who want cross save and cross play but honestly, I would be more than happy if they just released cross save.

This is constantly brought up and DE are well aware of the general appetite for this. That said, I would suggest the main problem that stands in the way of this ever being a thing are the policies and practices of both Sony and Nintendo. Take your petition to them.
