PSA: Transfer your GTA Online characters to Xbox One, PS4, and PC before March 6

Still playing GTA Online on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3? You might want to upgrade soon. Rockstar announced today that players only have until March 6 to transfer characters from previous-gen consoles to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Nothing will stop you from starting over if you choose to wait of course, and the servers for legacy consoles aren't shutting down anytime soon. This is just in regards to transferring an already-existing character from one system to another. So if you're currently playing on Xbox 360 or PS3 and want your data and all you've earned while rampaging around the virtual world of Los Santos to remain intact when you upgrade to Xbox One, PS4, or PC, get on that.

If you're not sure how to transfer, it's actually pretty easy; just make sure you have your Rockstar Social Club tied to your respective console, then fire up a copy of GTA 5 on Xbox One, PS4, or PC and log in. The game will walk you through the steps from there.
