Burnout Paradise save gone.

93 Replies 2,231 Views Created 14-03-2011

While playing Burnout on Saturday 12/03/2011 I left the room I was in and when I returned all my save was gone and the game started up as I was playing it for the first time. I tried to shut down the PS3 but when I did it started to install all sorts of demos of game's I have recently deleted. Came back the next day and started it up again and the save wasn't there still but when I went back on to Burnout all the people on my friends list I have been playing with have lost there saved data as well ( in the US and in the UK ). When ever I now leave Burnout now the PS3 shuts down totally and re-starts up again.

HELP ME PLEEEASE.

Well after nearly 5 months of waiting for some sort of answer to this issue i think it is safe to say its been brushed under the carpet.
Im sorry to say i have lost a lot of faith in my PS3 and Sony over this.

Hi BROTHERBROWN,

 

The issues in this case have been fed back to the developer. It was suggested the issue was related to the avatar selection when starting a new game. ie using an avatar that is downloaded and not a default one of the console. However others have had this issue in different circumstances.

 

This has been passed on, but as yet we are waiting for further information.

Criterion have abandoned this old title. With the recent sale on DLC though, Sony should get something sorted about this. I suggest forcing Criterion to remove the user lock on save games - let me install someone else's save. If they're not going to fix the bug (and they're clearly not going to) at least let us work around it ourselves.

 

Also, tell Criterion they're shedding previously loyal customers by the truckload.

Hello,

savedata gone two times, the first one with 99 % completed, the second one with 50 % completed. On having closed ps3 Bip bip and every gone.

A malicious question, will it be because we can save our information inplaystation+? paying certainly.

A lot of time it has passed and we have no responses. indignation and frustration.

I have my savedata in a pendrive, but although it copies it in ps3 it begins from the beginning.

I will begin again and will not get connected online to view that it happens.

I bought this game only played it online and now it doesn't work, I want my money back because I feel robbed. I'm going to write a complaint to sony surely this is in breach of the sale of goods act 1979 or similar.

Same thing happened to me today. :smileysad:

 

I didn't realise this was such a common problem, but my PS3 too decided to beep after I quit the game last night, and sure enough, after I booted it up today my save file was gone. I have a few questions:

 

1) Will I be stuck with this problem forever? (i.e. will this happen every time I start the game?)

2) Is it 'contagious'? In other words can I pass this glitch on to people if I go online?

3) Should I go online? I don't want to mess other people's games up.

 

I've only played it for about a week, but even so I managed to lose a lot of progress. Thanks in advance for any answers.

Is this being brushed under the carpet or what? No updates of any sort.
