Default PS3T's Official Locked Saves and Other Info Thread


Credit to darkdante14 for the banner

Date of last thread update?: 15/10/2014

Why are saves locked?
  • To encourage players to accomplish things themselves.
  • Developer want people to earn trophies themselves (disabling copying is much easier than implementing a system to disable copied game saves from earning trophies.
  • To stop possible exploits being found in game saves that can enable offline and online games.
  • Hacking: This is against Sony & PST.org rules.

What is the Cloud and how to use it?

If you're a Playstation Plus subscriber then you will have access to the PS+ Save File Cloud, this gives you 1gb of storage for your saves. If your subscription expires, then you will no longer be able to upload your saves and after 6 months everything of yours that's in the Cloud will be wiped.

To backup:
1. Select [Game] => [Save Data Utility].
2. Find the save you wish to backup.
3. Open the Options menu by pressing and select [Copy].
4. Select [Online Storage] as the destination of back up.

To restore:
1. Select [Game] => [Save Data Utility] => [Online Storage].
2. Find on the save you wish to copy.
3. Open the Options menu by pressing and select [Copy].

WARNING:

Uploading your save, for some stupid reason, also counts as having downloaded it. What this means is if anything happens to your save and you want to download it, you'll be locked out of downloading for 24hrs .

Legend:

* No trophies
* DLC has trophies but the disc doesn't.
* No Trophies in the US/EU copy, JPN only.

Games without an asterisk are locked to the PS3 Itself.

Note:
All the saves not listed in this thread are locked to your PSN ID.

  2. Armored Core: Verdict Day - 151mb - Locked but this file size only applies to the Photo file.

  4. WWE 2K14 - 150mb Save File - Locked Save.

Games saves patched to remove copy protection:
  • Darksiders 2
  • Dead Nation
  • Gran Turismo 5 - Copy protection was lifted with Update 1.05 but the 2.06 patch added a locked Backup save (The servers are closed, the is unobtainable).
  • MotorStorm: Pacific Rift
  • Resident Evil 5
  • Resistance 2
  • Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition
  • Valkyria Chronicles - System Data (settings)

- You can copy a save file to any location (USB and other users on the PS3).
- If you copy to a different user on the PS3, then you will be told that you tried to load a save file from another user and that it will be overwritten with a new one. You also cannot earn trophies with a save that was not created by that profile.


Profile locking:
  • Final Fantasy 13
  • Mass Effect 3 - Attempting to move this to a new PS3 will render it invisible to the game when you try to load it.
  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma*
  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - Here is the legal workaround to get your NGS 1+2 saves working on a new console should yours die or need a new Hard Drive (credit to DarkAmon for this):

    3 - Exit the game and go into the Save file section, delete the game saves BUT KEEP the Profile save

    4 - Move your save file from the USB to the system and load your save files.

    As long as it IS the same account then this will transfer your old Saves to your new system. the whole point is that the "profile" save is tied to the system itself BUT the saves are tied to the account.

    Side Note: costumes will have to be "re-unlocked" but if you have the save just re-beat final boss.
  • Red Faction: Guerrilla - Copying locks your personal profile and settings but not your game saves.

Online stats that are saved to the HDD:
  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon - Most but not all of your stats are saved to the Hard Drive.
  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Although your stats are saved to the Servers, some of your MP details are saved to the Hard Drive.
  • Atomic Ninjas (Vita) - Some but not all of your stats are saved to the Memory Card.
  • Borderlands 1 - The viral trophy unlock data is stored in one of the many save files this game generates.
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
  • Crysis 2 - Most of your stats are saved to the Hard Drive.
  • Far Cry 2 - Some but not all of your stats are saved to the Hard Drive.
  • F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin - Although your stats are saved to the Servers, some of your MP details are saved to the Hard Drive (The servers are closed, the is unobtainable).
  • Grand Theft Auto IV (4) (The leaderboards have closed but the is still obtainable)
  • Homefront (The Playlist servers are closed so the is unobtainable).
  • Lost Planet 3.
  • Modern Combat: Domination.
  • Mortal Combat 9 - I'm not 100% sure what stats are saved to the Hard Drive so be warned.
  • Red Faction: Guerrilla: WARNING: Online Stats Are Saved To HDD Not Server Based
  • Red Dead Redemption.
  • Resistance 2.
  • Resistance 3.
  • Resident Evil 5 - Some, if not all, of the stats for the Versus DLC are stored on your Hard Drive.
  • Snipers.
  • Sniper Elite 3.
  • Tomb Raider (2013/14).
  • Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 1.

PS 1 & 2 Virtual Memory Card Utility game saves
  • These cannot be uploaded to the Cloud but can be copied to a USB drive like a normal save.
  • If you take your HDD out for any reason, do a System Transfer or use the Data Restore utility then you'll have to reassign the Virtual Memory Card that the PS 1 & 2 games use.

    I found this out the hard way earlier when I loaded the Resident Evil: Director's Cut and found that it wouldn't recognise the save that was there. To reassign the VMC you need to: Press the button whilst in-game, go to "Assign Memory Card", press on the Memory Card you want to use then press the again to return to the game you're playing.

Incompatible Saves

This section is for GOTY/Complete Editions and Digital/Retail releases that have saves that aren't backwards compatible with each other or the regular releases.

GOTY/Complete Edition saves:
  1. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Game of the Year)
  2. Batman: Arkham City (Game of the Year)
  3. Dark Souls (Prepare to Die Edition) - This seems to vary for some absurd reason as sometimes the saves work, sometimes they don't so it's safer to assume they won't work with your existing copy.
  4. L.A Noire (Complete Edition)
  5. Saints Row: The Third (The Full Package)
  6. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 1 (Ultimate Sith Edition/Essentials Range)
  7. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2* (Essentials Range)
  8. Uncharted 3 (Once you have a save from the GOTY Edition, you can't go back to the vanilla release)

Digital and Retail saves:
  1. Dead Space Extraction
  2. Dead Space 3
  3. Far Cry 3
  4. Rayman Origins
  5. Spec Ops: The Line
  6. Tomb Raider: Underworld
  7. Wanted Corp

Both of the Above:
  1. Burnout: Paradise

None MMO Games with no physical saves

PSN:

For these games the only way you can back up your saves is to backup your entire Hard Drive .
  1. .Detuned
  2. Aabs Animals
  3. Linger in Shadows
  4. The PooYoos - Episode 1
  5. The PooYoos - Episode 2

Retail:

Data Transfer Utility

Before you start, please refer to this thread for tips on completing a successful Data Transfer: How secure is the Transfer Data Utility? Credit to all that posted in that thread on August 19th & 20th 2010.

1. Watch this video, thanks to darkdestroyer32:


2. Read this info: PlayStation Manuals

You can transfer (copy or move) data that is saved on one PS3's Hard Drive to another PS3's Hard Drive using an Ethernet cable.

Quote:
Notices:
  • When you perform this operation, all data that is stored on the PS3 that will receive the data (the destination system) will be deleted.
  • Deleted data cannot be restored so be careful not to accidentally delete important data. Data loss or corruption is the responsibility of the user.
  • Some types of data may not be transferable. See here for details.
  • It should be noted that this utility can malfunction sometimes, if this happens then try to reduce the amount of data it has to move and try again. If it continues to fail then salvage your saves, music, pictures, movies and forget about the rest. Installs are expendable, saves and memories are not.
Preparing the systems to transfer data

Before starting the data transfer operation, you must perform the following steps.

1. Update the system software of both PS3 systems to the latest version (currently 4.50).

2. Prepare the PS3 system that will send the data (the source system).
If multiple users exist on the source PS3 system, you must perform the following operations for all of the users before starting the data transfer operation.
  • Create a Playstation Network account if a user does not have an account.
  • Select (Playstation Network) > (Sign Up for Playstation Network) then follow the on-screen instructions to create an account.
  • Deactivate the PS3 if the data to be transferred contains content that was purchased from Playstation Store.
  • Select (PSN) > (Account Management) > (System Activation).
  • Sync your trophy information on the PS3 system with the Playstation Network server if you want to transfer trophy information.
  • Sign in to Playstation Network then select (Game) > (Trophy Collection).
  • Back up your profile information and stages you created in LittleBigPlanet. You can then use the data that was backed up when playing LittleBigPlanet on the destination PS3 system.
Quote:
Notice:

The following restrictions apply if you perform the data transfer operation without creating a Playstation Network account:
  • You may not be able to use the saved data on the destination PS3 system.
  • You may no longer be able to earn trophies using the saved data that you transferred.
  • Trophy information is not transferred (providing you sync your trophies first then this shouldn't be an issue).
Transferring data

Turn off both PS3s then perform the following steps. If the transferred data is saved game data that is copy-prohibited or data that is copyright protected, it will be moved to the destination PS3 and deleted from the source PS3.

1. Using an Ethernet cable, make a direct connection between the two PS3s

2. Connect both PS3s to different video input connectors on the TV. For example, use the HDMI input connector and the video input connector on the TV.

3. Turn on the TV then turn on both PS3s. Use the TV remote control to switch the video input to display the screen of the source PS3 system.

4. On the source PS3 system, select (Settings) > (System Settings) > [Data Transfer Utility].

5. Select [1. Transfer data from this system to the other PS3 system].
If you did not complete the preparation steps described earlier, follow the on-screen instructions to complete these steps.

6. When the PS3 system is on standby to begin the data transfer, use the TV remote control to switch the video input to display the screen of the destination PS3 system.

7. On the destination PS3, select (Settings) > (System Settings) > [Data Transfer Utility].

8. Select [2. Transfer data from the other PS3 system to this system].
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the operation.

Quote:
Hints:
  • After the Data Transfer operation has been completed, you can turn off the source PS3 system. Set the TV to display the screen of the source PS3 then select (Users) > (Turn Off System).
  • If content that was downloaded from Playstation Store was transferred as part of this operation, you must activate the destination PS3 system before you can use the data. Log in to the PS3 system as the user who owns the content, and then select (PSN) > (Account Management) > (System Activation) to activate the system.
Settings > System Settings > Data Transfer Utility

Limitations of the Data Transfer utility

Some types of data cannot be transferred using the data transfer utility,and some data can be transferred but not played on the destination PS3.

For the latest information, visit the SCE website for your region. The following types of data are not transferable:
  • Video content that has been downloaded as a rental from Playstation Store (file type: MNV)
  • Tracks (including song packs) for SingStar that have been saved to the Hard Drive
  • Copyright protected video files (file types: MGV and ETS)
  • Video files that are compatible with the DivX VOD (Video On Demand) service
  • The following Playstation 2 format software titles if they are installed on the PS3 system's Hard Drive (20-80gb models only):
    - [Nobunaga's Ambition Online] and [Expansion Packs]
    - [FINAL FANTASY XI] and [Expansion Discs]
    - [SOCOM II: U.S. NAVY SEALs] and [Related discs included with OPM Issue 87, OPM Issue 88, OPM Issue 89, OPM Issue 90]
    - SOCOM 3: U.S. NAVY SEALs
    - SOCOM: U.S. NAVY SEALs Combined Assault
For the following data types, you must perform some additional steps after completing the data transfer to be able to use the data:
  • GripShift - When you start the game for the first time after the data transfer operation, an error message will be displayed and you will not be able to play the game. To play the game, download and install it again.
  • Ghostbusters: The Video Game - The saved game will not be recognized when you start the game for the first time after the data transfer operation. To use the saved data, quit the game then start the game again. Do note that the servers for this game have been switched of so the is no longer possible.
  • LittleBigPlanet franchise - For these saves to transfer over properly you must have the original installs and your Exported Profiles (1 for each game), else you will lose a lot of progress.
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days HD - This is a weird one, it's like LBP but also doesn't seem to have an actual save : LINK

Important Information if you don't like Locked Saves

Vote Yes for this idea: Remove Copy Protection From Game Save Files

For PSN, you can add Tales of Monkey Island and Red Alert 3 Commander's Challenge while I go make puppy dog eyes at Telltale and EA respectively and ask why they hate our gamesaves so much.
