DLCs do not work cross gen, change it

This is ridiculous. I'm a Sony guy, so I've never had to deal with Bungie before but this leaves a bad taste in my mouth. http://destinynews.net/dlc-works-cross-gen/

    if u buy for the 360 and plan to switch to the one later then u have to buy all the dlc again this would not be as big a problem for other games but if they want it to last 10 years they should consider having a smother transition between consoles they let u swap characters between consoles in the beta y not dlcs after all for someone who might want to play on both 360 and one to keep with friends on both they would already have bought 2 games and 1 dlc, it seems harsh to make them pay an extra $40 min it would only encourage people to stick to one console and then they would loss the $100 they would have spent on a second game i would consider it to be best to have the dlc linked to player accounts and so they follow across that way destiny would not be discourage buying the new console when there ready

  • Why do you need to purchase Destiny now? If you don't have a current-gen console, I would say wait until you get one. That way you only pay for the game/DLC once. Future Destiny games will more than likely be current-gen only, so having Destiny on previous-gen won't do you a whole lot of good in the long term. Besides, Destiny as a game is not going anywhere. I understand the desire to play it now, rather than later, but Destiny will still be there by the time you upgrade to current-gen.

  • ..But the game itself isn't cross gen either is it? You can't play with people on a PS3 when you are on a PS4. So this only makes sense...

After a while you brought another gear for Ferrari F60 . You want to equip f50 to your f60? Either you are lame or retard

    • Yeah this needs to change. Why the -blam!- should I have to buy the dlc twice if all my other stuff transfers over? I already have to buy the game twice for ps3 the ps4 isn't that enough.... Oh well, I guess that's the price you pay for jumping to next gen.

      • They can link the stuff to our accounts instead of having it on their server that's what Final Fantasy does

      • This is no different then anything anybody has ever done on console. This shouldn't be a surprise at all. Would I say it is fair, No. It is what it is though.

        Why would DLC work gross gen, they're completely different machines. Your Ps4 disk won't play in your ps3 will it? Same thing.

      • Makes sense to me. If you are playing Destiny on 2 consoles (eg:- ps3 & ps4), then you have to buy 2 copies of the game, so why wouldn't you buy 2 copies of the dlc.

          The various versions of the game are only compatible with their respective platforms. Why should the expansion DLC be any different? By the way, this is a problem that you should take up with Microsoft and Sony. Bungie can't help that there's no backwards compatibility.

          • There are plenty of games whose DLC does not transfer across consoles. Unfortunately this is the truth of the situation, I recommend getting the DLC on your upgraded console

            • They could tie DLC to PSN name like the characters. Works for both gen systems

              • Ya that kinda does suck. At least all equipable items are transferable but strange that the dlc areas and story modes arent

              • So let's see if you upgrade that's the cost of the system, plus the cost of Destiny on the new system, plus the dlc again... That'll take a bite right out your ass....

                • Too bad millions of people already pre-ordered this thinking that it would transfer because Bungie was ambiguous as to what exactly would transfer over

                • What if, and this is crazy the dlc for last gen has less then current gen? As someone who is not casual and bought a console and won't look back at buying a new game for an old system I'm all for giving current gen more then last gen can handle

                  This is total bullshit but seeing as the game already went gold I think this feedback forum is useless at this point. If we didn't know now we know Bungie are shysters!

                  • They'll be stupid if they don't allow the DLC to carry over. It wouldn't be fair. This is one thing the community can and must rally behind if bungie announces DLC won't carry over

                    • Why should it? A little thing called planning ahead. I upgraded COD Ghosts almost 3 months before I got an X1. If you can afford to be dumb enough to buy a game twice on separate consoles, plus the cost of the new console/membership, you can hold off getting it, or definitely afford it again. You might be behind, but would it be that, or be out $60+ and exclusives. Your choice. DLC is applied to the hard drive, not a profile. If it was, some hacker could be playing on your profile, and delete all your data. You have to think, it is for our own safety (and to prevent illegal transfers, etc to other consoles). Heck, most of the time now: no Internet=no access to dlc you downloaded=no gameplay, period (now that is stupid IMO).
