i got a new ps3 on monday becuse my old one is dieing and they were on sale with 2 free games. and when i resotred my data form the back up off my old new ps3. i learned that the rb2 data goes not go with. so i thought i did some thing wrong and i looked it up online. and nope any one who gets a new ps3 you ave to star over, you can redownload your bought songs but the data you have to start over. do all the challenges, and 5 star all the tours again. so i was more then a lil pissed when discovered this. it dident occur to me becuse i got a new hd recently and it transfered, but apperntly not with a new console. which is totally BS.
Nope. Harmonix fixed it in Rock Band 3. You should really get the third game in the series though; it's a worthwhile upgrade.
If you have a PlayStation Plus subscription, then you can backup copy-prohibited saved data to the online storage and restore it onto a different console. If you still have your old console working, then you can also used Data Transfer Utility to copy everything over to the new PS3.
IM not a plus member, the old ps3 wouldent help seeing as I put the old hd in my new one. Becuse I just bought it back in may 500gigs. I plan on getting 3 adventully, but I wanted to unlock all the songs on 1, 2 n lego then port em to 3. So that way id have all the songs.
You don't have to unlock all the songs in the previous games to have them available in Rock Band 3. Basically the old games act as DLC or add-on content for Rock Band 3.
I believe there is a transfer option. You can transfer one PS3 to another. Not positive. I do know you can't do a backup then restore on a new ps3 without losing that save data. With the transfer option you hook up old ps3 to the new and it is supposed to save all. Let me know if it works.
Unfortunately, Ryuna no longer has that option since she paved the old hard drive when she installed it into her new PS3.
edit: maybe she might still have that option. She would have to install a spare hard drive into the old PS3, restore the backup, and then transfer back to the new PS3.
So I can just buy rb 1 n lego. Then insert them to have data on ps3 then port them without unlocking the songs?
You can find song export instructions on the Rock Band website.
is there a cheat to perm unlock the songs? since i already unlocked em. it be ok to cheat to get em back
I don't think so, but it's not particularly hard to unlock songs. You could blast through on Easy or Medium and probably unlock a whole bunch of trophies in the process too. Bring a friend along.
