switching from Xbox to PS4. Important question.

7 replies 528 views Edited Nov 9, 2013

This question is mainly for those EA sports gamers.  I have been an avid FIFA player on my Xbox 360 since FIFA 09.  I have a high FIFA level and i am a FUT Founding member, I have it as my Ultimate Team status.

 

I understand this data is saved onto the EA Origin account.  When I switch to the PS4 and I link my PSN ID to my EA Origin Account, will I keep all of my data, like my EA Sports Level and my FIFA Ultimate Team status?  Or will I lose all my data and have to start over?

 

Thanks in advance.

I can't attest to FIFA, but in Battlefield you keep all of your stats, accessible in catagories (Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4). Everything should be intact as long as you use your same Origin account.

You should keep it, since it logs in Origin in the game when you go to FuT

so data is saved on Origin not on PSN

I don't think anyone knows for sure but I would say you will keep your stats.

Ok.  I am on the EA Games website now.  How do I link my PSN ID to my Origin account?  I can't find it for the life of me...

In order to link a gamertag or PSN ID to your Origin account, you need to do this:

1. Log in to your Origin account

2. Press the cogwheel in the top right corner and choose "add a friend" (if you are on the pre-release version, click on Friends in the top left corner and choose "add a friend...")

3. The pop-up will give you the option to connect to Facebook, XBOX Live or Playstation Network. Choose your preferred option

4. Fill in your log-in details and follow the steps on screen

You're good to go. If you are unable to connect, it could be a temporar

I actually just got into contact with EA over the issue.  They told me that even though the data is saved with Origin, the file formats are different, so I will lose all of my data.  **bleep**, this sucks.  I really don't want to have to start all over on my EA level...

That sucks.

 

You could always get both consoles just so you don't get limited to Exclusives
