Still playing it, so I can’t give you a final verdict of it yet… or, should I say, “still played it, but can’t anymore”?

Awesome? No.
This is bullshit.

Square Enix, Bullshit is thy name.

I’m told it gets better after 15-20 hours.. lets hope so, I’m almost there now anyways.

why on earth would they do that?
unless its a new japanese craze to sell farmed save games or something theres little reason to limit it like that!

Hey Madsen, you can log in as your work id at home. My friend logged on to my system, allowing me access to his DLC. Same should work with saved games. You log in as your work id, save should work just fine. I’m not infront of my ps3, but I think you have to log in thru the psn. Would save you some hours of repeating the game.

Blake – Yeah, that’s the last thing I was gonna try at work. Or, something like that. Hook my work account up to PSN (same PSN as home, if possible), then re-saving the game, and bring it home.. fingers crossed it’ll work.

Still, a bit retarded to lock things like this. Don’t you agree?

Not particularly retarded, most PS3 games work like that. It was done to stop saves being overwritten by family members using the same console and forgetting which slot is theirs…

Not like my sister ever overwrote my FF7 save that was probably 4-5 races away from getting a Gold Chocobo… Bitch.

If you can use the same PSN login you did at work you must login as “it” to use the save file. It’ll share the trophies and such BUT it might let you play with that work PS3 save gave you now have on your home PS3 too…

Yeah but whats the story/gameplay like? I’ve heard the story is awful and there’s a WIN button that means you don’t have to do anything at all besides walk for the first 13 hours.

I can understand that system for consoles, but Games for Windows Live uses the same system on PC.
Now that really is retarded.
(of course if apple made games then you could only save with a .mac account ;)

I don’t think the blame lies with Square Enix on this one, I expect you’ll find that it’s due to trophies, since trophies are tied to a specific account.

So you can’t just download a save game and suddenly unlock all the trophies, or something like that.

It’ s all due to trophy support. Without net access, it can’t verify you’re trying to not trying to do the “copy a save file” method to give a friend a trophy. You need to link it to your user id somehow…

MS did this with the achievement system too, and now that Sony supports trophies they’re encrypted and tied to a user, including the save file.

Problem is we never logged in on the PS3 at work as we never hooked it up to the internets.

March 12th, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Remember February 29th, 2010? Yeah, you don’t need an Internet connection for trophy support to completely screw up your gaming experience. (Guess who owns one of the affected PS3s.)


There is no spoon.
