Transferring profile between platforms - clarification

Activision have now confirmed you CANNOT transfer profiles between console platforms as Mark Rubin seemed to hint at in a recent interview.

“With the launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts, using their Call of Duty account, players will be able to carry their profile, stats and in-game progress forward and backward from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, and from PS3 to PS4.  This new ability will not only allow players to further enjoy their Call of Duty: Ghosts experience regardless of whether they are playing on current gen or next gen, but also will help them seamlessly transition to next gen, within console family, when ready. Currently, we do not have the ability to allow players to transfer their information across platform between Xbox and PlayStation. We apologize for any confusion. Please check CallofDuty.com for any new updates to policies surrounding console transition.” - statement from Activision

Whats the point of this? This isnt important. Why would you want to transfer your character from Xbox to PS and vice versa.

IT still let's you transfer stats between Xbox 360 and Xbox one. And ps4 and ps3. That's all that matters.

it's important because originally we were told we could swap profiles between platforms, as such some people were going to get the game on x platform assuming they could then swap next gen platforms and carry their profile over, and some people were excited by the prospect of being able to use their profile on another platform if they went to a friends house for example.

While you may not find it useful alot of people would have.

From what I remember they only said that you could transfer from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One.  I didn't hear anything about you being able to switch between the Xbox 360 and PS4, and it really doesn't make much sense anyways.

I wanted to get Ghosts for both my 360 and the PS4 because of the supposed cross platform character transfer. But now I'm only going to get it for the PS4. That one difference made Actvision and Microsoft lose money.

I think this is a classic case of the first party platforms not playing well together, the systems are basically all in place but if one platform wont allow it then the whole thing is dead in the water

it's a shame really and like you i was getting a 360 game them changing to another platform.

So does this mean my account on the PC version cannot be used in console versions as well?

I highly doubt it.  It is only for console families.
