    Rockstar have recently announced that after March 6th 2017
    THERE WILL BE NO MORE CHARACTER TRANSFERS FROM LAST GEN CONSOLES.

    If you have not transferred your progress to a PS4, Xbox One or PC by that date, you will not be able to.

    This will of course put a stop to modded accounts getting across platforms but will also hinder many genuine players that simply cannot afford to upgrade from PS3 or Xbox 360.

    If you are still on a last gen console and do not transfer your progress by this date, when you finally make the move to a newer console or PC, you will be forced to start over with a new character.

    I would strongly recommend if you are in that group of last gen players that you DO transfer before the cut-off.
    You will need to ask a friend with a current gen platform of your choice to make the transfer for you on their console, or see if you can go & get a half hour's use of their console to do it for yourself.
    Using this method you will be giving them the log in details for your account in order to download your profile.
    If you take this route I'd strongly recommend a password reset after the transfer.

    Once transferred, your current gen profile will remain as it was the day it was transferred, whilst your PS3/Xbox360 profile will continue on it's separate way as you continue to play.
    In other words if you transfer your 360 character to XB1 on Thursday, then on Friday you sell your Zentorno on the 360, the XB1 profile will still have the Zentorno. No changes will be made by playing on the 360.

    This Monday (6th March) is your last chance to transfer your GTAO progression
    from last gen to current gen / PC.

    I'm willing to help with transfers to Xbox One if anyone is stuck & does not have access to one. PM me if you need help or have questions.
    I'd literally just transfer it so that it's ready when you are and delete from my console (it'll be saved in the cloud). I'd not play on it. You'll need to do the SP prologue once you migrate.
    You cannot later change your mind & transfer to a PS4. You make your choice and stick with it.

    If you don't transfer by then you'll have to start over should you migrate later. If you do transfer in time you can still carry on on your last gen console for as long as you like. When you finally upgrade your character's progress on next gen will be just as the day it was transferred.

    Tip : Be rich! If you have a cop outfit, put a mask on it or it'll go. As will many other illegitimate outfits.

    I've already considered and am now planning on transferring onto PS4 while also sticking with PS3. I plan to do it this weekend but if I won't be able to, I might have to ask you to help me out on that and I can do it on another date when possible.

    Just need to ask, I've read about you needing to link up your social club account. What if you transferred say your PS3 character onto PS4 but haven't linked that with your social club and the deadline passes, then what?

    Firstly - I can't help with a transfer to PS4 as I don't have one. I've seen a thread on another site ''spits'' - a certain blue themed one - that has people offering to transfer on both platforms. Just change your password after they do it, just to be safe (not that they could steal it but they could spend all your money if they had continued access & were malicious - highly doubtful).
    Secondly - For real? After all this time you've not linked your PSN to Social club? I thought that was necessary to even join a crew. However I don't think it's necessary to transfer progress to next gen. As long as you transfer by that date you're good, AFIK regardless of whether it's linked. You just need that info in the cloud that says your character's progress has been transferred.
    Thirdly - There will not be another time to do the transfer after Monday 6th.

    Firstly- Shit, I forgot.
    Secondly- My PSN has always been linked with my social club. I was just wondering if there would be a separate one for PSN on PS4.
    Thirdly- I know, that's why I'm doing it this weekend.
