Decided to get back into FPS. I don't think I've played one since Halo 2. Still running on a PS3 but might upgrade to a PS4 bundle once I've gone through the original story line.

Welcome to the forums, Guardian! Don't join the PS4 horde! Come to the Xbone side...

The last platform that I actively played on was an XBox (Halo & Forza mostly) Just bought the PS3 for the sake of needing a dvd/br player at the time and it was cheaper. 

 

Still open to either platform. I'm assuming that platforms, even PS3 to PS4, don't cross play. Are there more players on Xbox vs PS?

No, not that I know of. It's just a "my side of the fence is better because I said so" kind of thing. The console wars will never die.

Welcome Sloth. And I believe the XBOX side is a mob so stick with the PS.

So far so good. Getting the feeling of a FPS again is tough. I didn't get through much last night since I had to download all the patches and what-not. Took over an hour. Just shy of level 4 and should be able to get some more play in tonight. Picked up a headset so hopefully I'll be able to find some people to help show me the ropes.

Just thought of something last night - If/when I upgrade from the PS3, will my saved data, guardian levels, items, and such be able to transfer??? I'm 99% sure that they wouldn't if I went with an XB1, but what about from PS3 to PS4. Has anyone tried it? I would hate to pour hours into the game only to have to start all over in a few months or so.

SSSOOOOO many cookies. Seriously, at my work we bake fresh cookies throughout the day for customers. The oven for said Otis Spunkmeyer cookies is located right outside the door to my office area. I smell them ALL. DAY. LONG... 

 

 

 

But even more seriously, if I get a PS4 can I bring my saved data from my PS3 with me????

If by "saved data" you asking about your Destiny character, yes.  

 

Any other saved data I am not sure about.

It looks like if I can bring my saved progress in Destiny with me to a PS4 then I might have to go that route instead of XBone. Or I just get an XBone and just keep playing Destiny on the PS3..... too tough to think about right now. I'm just going to get another cookie.

I usually save the energy and just eat the cookie dough without baking them.

Haven't posted back in a while, but I will say that I'm enjoying the game. More hooked on the PvE rather than multiplayer. I tried 2 matches in the Crucible and got absolutely annihilated! The second game my average lifespan was about 20 sec. and no matter how many rounds I put into someone their shield bar never budged. I'm not sure if that's just a mechanic of the game based on what weapons I was using or what. 

I've found 2 other guys to play with regularly (only 1 has as mic) and still haven't been able to get the right group together to finish the vault of glass. Right now we're running through strikes which are a lot more fun now that I've leveled up to 39.
