[Problem] GT5 saves are locked! Backup is impossible...

6 replies 94 views Edited Nov 23, 2010

Hello,

 

There is a very annoying problem that threatens to scold a lot of players!

 

Indeed, it is impossible to make a backup of the save on USB key if there is a problem! Because it is locked on the hard drive! Locked to prevent cheating, okay, but Sony should find a less intrusive solution such as allowing the user to be able to backup the save while making it only usable with the account on which it was created.

 

Because if my console has come to die (which I suspect to soon unfortunately), my save will be lost and I should start all over again!

 

I hope that Sony will find a solution to this problem, or that Sony offers a system for storing backups on servers online PSN...

 

Thank you

There's already a thread about this....  There's even a blog link to petition this idea for all games.

Its probably just because its really easy to alter the contents of the save. Like for MW2......

Im thinking if you log onto your PSN account it should have your save right there. I mean GT5P saves were so tiny sony could easily back them up for the purpose, anyone else agree with me?

This is a big deal. I've lost game saves for at least 3 different versions of Gran Turismo in my life time, and it's a painful experience.

My best suggestion is to encourage Sony to add an online backup feature to the PSN. You can easily find this feature to vote for on the Playstation.Blog Share.

Backup is not impossible.

 

The Backup Utility allows copy protected files to be backed up. Problem solved.

 

This thread should be locked soon.
