Lost game data

6 replies 305 views Edited Mar 7, 2013

A few weeks ago my Ps3 kept freezing on the home screen and I was forced to reformat my hard drive. I had never done a back up and realize now that I should have, but long story short all of my in game data is gone. In reading through other posts I realize that I will never get my hours on hours of saved data back, but is there any way for me to get the free downloaded and special event cars that I had gotten from playing?

I would try to download the freebies again; and do the special events again, or try to trade for the cars you need. Lots of good folks to trade with here, just head over to the Marketplace section.

Anything that you downloaded through the PSN you should be able to recover, except some special gifts that you had to earn within GT. Even some players who earned the cars didn't always get them and there was nothing they could do about that, either.

 

So, most of what you had before you can get again. If there are any special cases that you need in a hurry, then go to the GT Marketplace and request some help in borrowing or gifting them.

 

I trust that you will do back-ups more frequently, now.

I do believe that both the Stealth GT-R and Stealth NXS are no longer downloadable since they were limited-time promotional things - I never got the NSX due to not knowing about that particular event or something similar. I'm surprised the GT-R is still being advertised on the main GTpage (on the left-hand side of the screen).
