Spider-Man PS4 save-games won’t transfer to the PS5 remaster

I’m looking forward to the next generation of Sony consoles, primarily because they’re kicking off with the best game possible: A brand new chapter of web-slinging action, starring the sensational Peter Parker protégé Miles Morales as the amazing wallcrawler. Last week’s Sony showcase revealed more gameplay for web spin-off, the visuals look amazing, and yes I’m down like a homicidal clown for battling hooligans who look like they’re ready for the mother of all dubstep concerts.

If you’re feeling the same way, and you haven’t played Insomniac’s first Spider-Man game because your parents didn’t love you, then good news! The ultimate edition of Spider-Man: Miles Morales will include a remastered version of the web-slinging masterpiece, while PS4 owners will be able to get a free upgrade.

Here’s the catch, delivered via Green Goblin fedex mail: Your save-game from the PS4 version won’t carry over to PS5. This is both good and bad…and then really bad. Good because the 2018 game is a bloody marvel (pun intended because I’m not a coward), bad because it also means I’ll have to replay those awful Mary Jane and Miles stealth sections again and oh dear lord my heart is not ready for those other emotional shock-moments from the excellent story again.

Other than that, the remaster of Spider-Man brings a lot of upgraded goodness to the table, in a chunky 105GB download size. 4K visuals, ray tracing, and various performance modes across two games are the main reasons why your fancy new PS5 SSD will be filling up pretty quickly on November 12.

      Xbox is looking better and better, imo.
      Cheaper console (S version), game pass, all these studios MS now owns…

      I dunno if God of War is enough to make me stay with PS.

        I am part of the PC Master-bate race as well, so I think I am mostly covered regarding their games. But yeah, given how limited the PS5 supply was and how long it will take to get more – my decision might change by then if the games are just too cool on the green side.

      I want to play that new horrible Wolfenstein game (with the two annoying sisters) on gamepass because it would be “free”.

      The one thing I love about Microsoft’s purchase of Bethesda is that it will fire up Sony again. The best Sony is one that’s fighting with its back to the wall. The worst Sony is arrogant Sony. Even, I went into the PS3 launch absolutely hating them.

      The same is true for Microsoft as well. They’re actually making the right mating calls now. I’m still distrustful of them, and probably will be for years to come, but it’s definitely a different Microsoft then the one that was under Steve Ballmer’s control. Nadella had me worried at one point, but he seems to be more hands off and trusting of Phil Spencer.

    Since I platinumed it (and went for 100% completion) on PS4, if I did get a free copy of it on PS5, I wouldn’t really want to transfer my saves. I’d probably replay it. It was such a fantastic game.

      Still can’t believe they didn’t charge a single microtransaction for a skin

        They’re truly one of those rare breed of developers that you can still say “They’re the good guys”.

    That’s unfortunate. To bury so many more hours into the game…I don’t really like replaying games that are heavily story-based, regardless of how great the game was!
