Yes. Yes they will

Sause please.

 

I contacted R* a couple weeks ago about this & they gave me the typical "stay tuned for more info" crap.

It's a contentious issue, and one on which we have literally zero information.

 

On one hand, people believe their CE content should transfer over to stop them having to buy CE twice. The argument on the other hand, is that other people will say that New-Gen CE is a different game, on a different platform, and so a re-purchase is fair.

 

It depends on whether or not if affects you, but to be honest, it doesn't affect me and I couldn't care less.

I mean, you bought another console and another copy of the game. It'd be unfair if you had to buy the CE again, too.

Well i mean, if you have the option to transfer data over, i'm sure your Hotknife wouldn't be discriminated from your Cheetah.

Except there is no special edition for next gen. There would be preorders available by now its like a month away now.

 

There not going to sneak one in when so many have already preordered.

Good to know, I'd be pissed if I lost my signature gun(Pistol .50).

Ive been heavily insistent on the gamestop dudes. If any sort of other edition besides the normal 60 $ one becomes available theyre supposed to call me.

 

I have double checked on it regularly in person as well.

Ive done the exact same thing lol. When i pre-ordered a few weeks back they told me just the standard copy is available.

 

That leads me to believe that when transferring it will recognize the CE owners, but without confirmation from R* its all speculation.

If they took the collector's edition content away on transfer it would be a bit messy since a lot of those characters CE owners created were based on CE grandparents. We'll have to wait and see though.

Oh right great point.

 

My main guy has Niko for a dad.

 

He better not change appearance.

I wonder if that means transferred characters will be able to buy CE stuff? I.e. It's now become standard? That would be one reason you can't swap between platforms more than once, otherwise you could get CE stuff in old gen.....

Probably overthinking it! Lol

I think my point has already been touched on but those of you who have played

Gran Tursimo 5 will know that there was a collector's edition of that game with

"Stealth" cars, when Gran Turismo 6 came out they were included as standard

with the game making them not so "collectors edition" vehicles anymore.

 

Think the same will happen in GTA V on next gen, the CE content will become

standard available to everyone or in worst situation it won't transfer at all to

remain "collector" on the PS3.

Your saved content won't change. Whatever is on the R* cloud for PS3 will be there when the game boots up and is accessed via your PS4. Buying the game again just allows you access to R*'s GTAV cloud servers with your PS4.

Yes the cloud save data will be there on the PS4 but the codes for the collectors edition were entered

for the PS3 on the PlayStation store and as far as I understand it PlayStation 3 downloads don't show

on the PS4 (at least mine don't) so doesn't that mean the Collectors Edition content can't transfer over?

 

Sorry to be picky!

Actually, when my old PS3 took a crap, I got another one and was unable to use my DLC code as Sony has made it to where DLC and only be active on two machines. When I logged into GTAO, without entering DLC codes of any sort, the CE content I had in the original game file was still there. I didn't have any of the cars at the time that my old console bought the farm (they're good for car shows, and that's about it...) but the weaponry (Desert Eagle, Bullpup shotgun, hammer) and my character's heritage (Misty is her mom) was still there. I couldn't buy the cars from the store, but the CE content DID carry over WITHOUT the DLC code...

 

Sorry for the double-post, but I though this info was worth bumping the thread for...
