so earlier today i was having a lazy day playing some playstation, more specifically little big planet. if you know anything about this game it is addictive and quite annoying. but can be fun and i like to beat levels because somewhere in my mind i feel like i’m doing something productive….
well before i started playing it asked me to do a system update because otherwise the online part of the game wouldn’t work…and i mean the online part isn’t a huge deal but i thought what heck. so decided to do the system update that i had been ignoring for weeks.
i did the update. played for about an hour, became very frustrated because i kept dying. and turned it off and went and did other stuff. i had posted a status saying “little big planet made me want to break my ps3”.
then about 730 tonight i decided to turn the playstation back on…and it said that it was corrupt and had to reboot the playstation using the default settings. in my mind this isn’t really sinking in as to what was happening…i’m just going through the motions of resetting it. then i realize that it’s like my profile was gone. and my two most important games will not load (little big planet and resident evil 5). lbp loaded to an extent but kept saying something about trophies will not work. RE5 was totally gone. but when i looked in my saved files all my games were still there but for some reason the ps3 just couldnt read the files anymore. don and i were thinking it was because my username had been wiped out completely.
so we looked online and tons of other people have had this problem. and it looks like it’s linked to updating the ps3. and about the only way to fix it so far is to start all over, meaning losing everything you’ve saved.
and you don’t understand…..we have played countless hours of RE5. and it’s weird because we beat the game months ago and just recently decided to pick it back up and play some of the bonus levels. we have upgraded all the weapons we wanted…had infinite ammo…that means having to beat the game multiple times…there’s still a few things we were working on…and now to have that all taken away because for some reason the ps3 cant read our save filed anymore…….it’s more than frustrating.
after about an hour of trying to read online and think of what to do. don comes up with the idea that if the problem has to do with the ps3 trying to download info to play the game then maybe just unplugging the internet from the ps3 and playing it just like that…just maybe our problem would be fixed. i had little hope this would work…because it seemed like such a simple solution…and everyone online was talking about having to get a new hard drive, having to reformat the ps3…losing everything and starting from scratch.
so here were our options: not play resident evil or little big planet until sony could figure out what they effed up in the last update and fix it in the next update….reformat the ps3 and start over or try it without the internet. and so we unplugged the internet…and just like that all of our pretty weapons in resident evil were there…all of our accomplishments were there!! it was amazing…there seems to be some issues still with little big planet but it is still playable and i don’t have to start over. so hopefully the issue gets solved so we can get back online….but i’m just soooooo thankful we didn’t lose everything! hahah i know, sounds so stupid and dorky…but the game is awesome..
i’m starting to have a weird feeling though…it’s that feeling you get when things just keep going wrong…it’s like a cycle. yesterday my car broke down…today the ps3…and then right before i went to bed i went to the kitchen…turned on the light and it burned out immediately. i know, small problem, but still just adds on. so things come in threes or something like that…so 3 things breaking but fixed…please let my monday not be so bad. hahaha
