so I descided to give Bayonetta a second chance and want to continiue my old save file. problem: it's copy protected and on my old (broken) PS3. Copying it via USB Stick isn't an option, obviously and I'm not going to invest 20€ into a PS+ membership just to copy a single save file (I know PS+ has other advantages, I'm just not interested at the moment in spending the cash).
So I hooked up my old PS3 onto my old TV and want to use the data Transfer Utility, but have some questions first:
1) Will I be able to copy JUST this ONE file? I don't want to override my new files with older versions. If this can't be done, then the whole plan falls flat :(
2) If I can't copy my one file, I would simply delete everything from my old PS3 except the Bayo-save-files, that would work? Right? But that leads me to...
3) The PS3 tells me, that all my data from my new/reciving PS3 will be deleted? True? Why?
I really hate these copy-protected files and hope Sony will drop this BS when designing the PS4... I'm really annyoed that I can't just copy my own file to my own new system.
Any responses are much appreachiated. --- How's that for a slice of fried gold? PSN: GoodNewsOke
You'll have to transfer ALL data at once, deleting whatever is in the new PS3.
So that's not an option, unfortunetely.
Basically, the idea behind the Data transfer was to buy a new PS3 and immediately copy all the data from your old PS3 to the new. Not sure on why a format is needed always (even when it's brand new) but the thing is that it makes a complete duplicate of your old HDD on the new system. --- PSN: Nightmare966
install a custom firmware (illegal) to your old PS3 and use FTP to transfer that file to your PC.
then you have to unlock the file with some save editor application (illegal) before you can transfer it to the new PS3. --- X > V > T > VI > XII > XIII-2 > X-2 > XIII > TLR > VIII > VII > IV > IX > III > I > II
the only viable option is custom firmware but we are not allowed to talk about that here so google it, or you can purchase xploder/game genie and use someone's else's save file and play the game that way by resigning it to your profile, or you have PS+ but that would be pointless to purchase because the save file is locked down to your other ps3 anyway.
and yes i hate copy protected save file too, but it's only going to get worse, the wii u locks down all of your saves, you can't backup anything to a memory card at all expect the ps4/xbox 720 to be the same too, i think there will come a point where memory cards (local space) will become a thing of the past. --- UK Female Gamer PC specs: AMD FX BULLDOZER 4100 QUAD CORE 4.0ghz ATI HD6670 8GB RAM 1TB HDD Youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/HUYI1
I was really hoping there would be an easy way (that wouldn't require me to purchase PS+) but whatever. Can't say I'm surprised though... it's not like this console generation is particulary consumer friendly, now is it? --- How's that for a slice of fried gold? PSN: GoodNewsOke

Not the consoles fault. It is up to the publishers and developers I'd they want to block the ability to copy save data. So if your gonna blame anyone blame Sega and Platinum. --- PSN: Hiroshima711
