So, I have both console versions of Marvel’s Avengers for testing, and when the new upgrade was released, I decided to take them for a spin. I had completely different experiences.
Like most things dealing with the “Smart Delivery” system on Xbox, I had no issues moving from Xbox One to Xbox Series X. Barely an inconvenience. The game knew I was running it on Series X, swapped to that version, and my save was there.
But on PlayStation (my main platform because of the eventual promise of Spider-Man), like the Call of Duty upgrade, it was a pain. The main problem is save-migration. To do so, you need to launch the PS4 version first, update the game, then you can see the “save migration tab” in the PS4 version. Initiate that, then download the PS5 version (is Sony aware of how quickly space runs out on the PS5?), and transfer the save. Then delete the PS4 version.
It was the same deal with Spider-Man Remastered at launch; so this process doesn’t seem to be a launch day mishap, nor is it going away anytime soon. Instead, Sony is putting the burden on publishers to troubleshoot the cumbersome process. This is going to get real old real fast.
