Diablo 3 PS3/360 Saves Can Transfer to PS4 or Xbox One -- Your Choice

You can choose which of the new platforms to transfer your save to regardless of which last-gen console your save is on

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition players importing characters and saves from last-generation Diablo III can transition from a Sony or Microsoft system, reports Destructoid. This means you can either switch from Xbox 360 to the PlayStation 4, or from PlayStation 3 to Xbox One.

By linking an Xbox Live gamertag or a PSN ID to a Battle.net account, players can import their progress. However, saves can't be transferred between Xbox One and PS4. No reason for this restriction was mentioned, and there was no announcement of a PC-to-current-generation.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition features the base game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, plus new achievements and trophies. The PS4 version will feature exclusive content based on The Last of Us and Shadow of the Colossus.

You can read more on the Reaper of Souls expansion in GameSpot's review.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will be released August 19.

Any info as to whether you can import the demo save data from a ps3 to the full ps4 game? I'm pretty sure you could do that with the ps3 full game.


And does this mean ps3 users cant play with ps4 users online? :O

Im impressed, Blizzard has really put effort into turning this trainwreck around into a good game with lasting playability. A lot of current failures of gaming should learn from this.


Also a lot of current games would benefit from this save transition feature.

Confirmed. you need your save on HHD or on a USB. they did NOT keep track online like Rockstar did theirs so you are completely screwed with Blizzard.

More games should do this.... This is ingenious.

That's cool of them. But Diablo 3 is a shadow of its predecessor's selves. I still play Diablo 1 on my PS3 and even though the controls bl0w it's got so much more "gravitas" and soul to it.

@xantufrog  I hate to say it, but yea. I agree. I love diablo 3, I think its a fun game that continues the mythos I fell in love with, but diablo 1 is sitting in my blu-ray rw drive right now, I love that game.


You absolutely are correct that the gothic medieval horror of it carries such weight. I love getting to a point of just getting my but kicked so much just to find a shortcut back to town in the 5 level increments and then hearing that guitar over world song was always such a relief.


Diablo 2 is also a great game that I think did well to blend the weight of the first with the exploration of the larger world. 3 again is fun and I like it but it doesn't feel gritty and as real as the first 2.

Just after they came out with the update where they first added paragon levels, I played for maybe one more week after that then I have never touched diablo 3 since and never plan to again. The game is f*cking garbage, ladies and gents, don't waste money on a console version.

@Ayzed You are talking about pre 2.0 (and, subsequently, pre "Paragon 2.0) so your information is obsolete. Game is quite good now.
If you don't like it, that is a complete different thing.

This should be the standard for every game. I was tempted to get a number of games on the PS4 but didn't want to start again. porting saves should be the default.

@RobDev For most online games it makes more sense as I would imagine a lot of the data is stored in a non-platform-specific way, of course they won't want to allow it from one company's platform to the other.


For regular games where the save data is local or even if cloud it's still "native", well that's another story.  It's work, how much depends on the game and platform of course, and for a lot of games, especially old ones, they won't want to put any resources towards it.

i might just start a brand new guy even tho im max lvl +60 but i think i have hacked armor that i didnt even know about... i hope they focus on the hackers in this game and get rid of that shit

@XxXDarkness0XxX Now tell us how you got a "hacked" armor in a game in which you can't trade and every legendary is account bound...

@Warlord_Irochi @XxXDarkness0XxX a guy comes in, says "you guys need stuff" i say "ya" then he drops items with a insane number for defense... I even have a weapon that makes you swing at 1000mph doing like 9999999999999999999999999 damage.. this sort of thing wasn't a surprise on the PS3 version

We gotta remember though, Blizzard said themselves they don't even know if they will support Diablo after launch. 

Which I find stupid if they don't.

@jako998 the 360/ps3 version was way better than PC's back when it launched… but then the PC started getting some preps and finally 2.0 and RoS… and the 360/ps3 was never to be touched again… 

BovineDivine

@jako998 @Ahiru-San this version will be as good as the current pc version. Honestly, unless there's a game breaking bug it probably won't recieve content updates in the future in line with the pc version. BUT, considering how much better D3 is now compared to where it was, I'm ok with it not getting updated content-wise.

I'll be starting for the first time on Ps4!  This is a great feature though!

Can anyone give me a big and good run down of this game ( people who have played it) ?

Can you play with other players ?

How long is the game ? is it worth it ? etc etc etc...

@jako998 longevity depends on how much you want to invest in the game. And yes,you can play local and online co-op with 3 friends/random people. With the UEE coming out in august you get 1 additional act and class to play through so Id say a good 20hrs if all you do is play through once but you will never reach level cap in only 1 playthrough. But then with the addition of Rifts runs etc you can easily go into the hundreds of hours. Also,if we eventually get the new patch 2.1 which introduces the treasure realm where Treasure Goblins go to when you fail to kill them and they escape through their portals + Greater rifts it will add even more content to the game.  Theres also a brawling arena where you can go PvP with others.

Why the F isnt the PS3 version getting the exclusive content also??? Both SOTC and Crap of Us were on PS3 first.

That would be sweet!

What if I currently own the original on PS3, purchase the D3:UEE on PS3 on august 19th. Play for a long time but eventually decide to purchase a PS4 and the ps4 version of the UEE. Will I be able to transfer my UEE PS3 files to my PS4?

As someone who played on the 360 last time around and will not need to start anew on PS4 I say this is AWESOME

This game!  This is the game I want really bad on my PS4!   I cannot believe it's still under 3 weeks away!  To long to wait however it will be great to transfer my Demon Hunter over from the PS3.  A very nice feature, thanks Blizzard!

Kinguard73

Ok so what IS transferred between the 360 to the PS4? Do I start with a level 60 nakid hunter and my progress is as unlocked as my 360 or what? Someone send me a tell to tell me what kind of progress I will obtain for my 360 they are linked but I no longer own it.


So they must have a copy of my char on their servers since they need a copy to make sure I am not cheating.... so what's up blizzard?

D3 didn't grab me as much as I wanted/expected, but I still got my money's worth.

@meatz666 Actually, the PS4 version will be the Ultimate version to own.  It will have the The Last of Us area with baddies!

day 1 ps4 version for me, cannot wait.  I actually just got D3 for 20 bucks on ps3 before i knew there was an upcoming ps4 version.  I think i'll wait and trade it towards the ps4 version before i start playing it.

Ps4 is definitely the console of choice to play this one on if you like FULL HD

This would be day one easily for my PS4, i'm almost close to buying it as is just for the exclusives. My trepidation comes from not being able to cross save from my pc. If they allow cross save from PC to console, i'm in.

I don't see why they can't everything is server based. Maybe i'm wrong but i'd imagine all they have to do is allow the save to transfer to the console servers.

This will really take advantage of 1080p 60 fps flat screen ps4 good ness. I bought it on the 360 but I'm ready to play this in Full HD now. Ps4 for the win here big time.
