Bungie making sure you can import characters from last- to current-gen in Destiny

Don't hold your breath for character imports between console platforms

Destiny is going to be a huge game where you'll be able to sink hundreds of hours into the experience. So it's a good thing Bungie is looking into making sure players can import their characters from last-gen consoles to the current generation of platforms.

"We're really interested in making sure that last-gen character can move to next-gen," investment lead Tyson Green told us. "There's going to be a lot of people who buy Destiny on say a PS3 or Xbox 360, and then they get a PS4 for Christmas and it's like, 'Well, don't tell me I've just wasted my last 100 hours there.' We don't want to lock people in."

All versions of the game will be the same in terms of content on offer (aside from the early exclusives on the Sony platforms). The main differences will really be on the visual side, obviously.

Bungie had nothing to announce in regards to importing characters between the rival hardware, like importing your 360 character over to the PS4, for example. Green stated that's been traditionally a restricted thing from the platform holders more so than anything else. They had nothing to say about bringing your character to future Destiny games in this regard either, what with the whole 10-year development deal and all.
