booted up my ps3 today, went to walking dead and it said there was an error and it would correct itself. after allowing it to do it's thing, i went to play and all my saved games are gone. the file is still in the saved folder though. any help?

edit: the save file may have also been altered because it's only 167KB now. crap, did i just lose everything??

  • Hi,

    Per my update to the Support FAQ last week, we are definitely looking into this and taking it seriously, but have not yet been able to reproduce it in-house. I'm really sorry it's happening and I wish I had more news, but I don't at the moment.

    If you're experiencing this issue, are you using an older PS3, or one of the newer slim models?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hello there, I have recently signed up to the telltale forums to report this problem.

    I am using a 60GB fatty model with a 500GB hard drive I installed myself.

    I had 2 separate save games before playing episode 2, and completed episode 2 using both saves.

    I started episode 1 using the 3rd save, and did not encounter any problems. However the next time I booted up I got an error saying the save file had been corrupted, and that the Walking Dead was repairing the file.

    Unfortunately non of my saves appear when I load up the game, although the save data still appears on the XMB as a non corrupted save file.

    Judging by other threads in the forums it appears that it is not just PS3 users who have this problem.

    I hope this info has proved useful and that you can fix the problem ASAP!

    Many thanks :)

    Hi Mike,


    I have a PS3 slim that is not even a year old yet ,and I am also having this problem. My save corrupted twice so far and i refused to start a new game until this bug is fixed.

    I hope this gets resolved soon , because I truly am in love with this game.

    Thanks.- Dee Everett

    hey, my ps3 is a newer slim. here's how to reproduce it:

    - fill 3 slots with episode 1
    - download the patch update that comes with episode 2
    - play 2 episodes of episode two from those continued saves
    - try to continue your 3rd slot; you'll be given a corrupt data error
