TWD: Save Data Corrupted (PS3)

posted by pshomii on - last edited - Viewed by 2.4K users
Something weird happen to my The Walking Dead game save data. I was all set and ready to play my third play-through for Episode 2. I started up the game and it said "Save Data Corrupted"... All my data was erased!!! Anybody else have this problem? Now I have to start over.

It's also worth mentioning that once I turned on the PS3, I went and synched my trophies then I started up the game.

  • Yup... this just happened to me again. After it corrupted the first time and erased all my save slots, I re-started playing the game. First playthrough was fine all the way through Ep 2. Second playthrough was fine as well. Third playthrough, when loading up Episode 2 after just completing Ep. 1 it wouldn't load. Got that message, "Save Data Corrupted."

    I know Telltale is working on a fix, possibly, and I hope it comes out soon. I'm just frustrated after investing all this time only to have my saves erased.

    Also worth mentioning, if it helps TellTale; I do have an older PS3 model (Original 60GB Model from launch).

    I don't know if I want to invest anymore time into this game, but I will patiently wait for a fix, hopefully.
  • Happened to me today...
    I feel your pain.... They stole hours from our live by making a game that is glitchy as fuck....
    Bethesda ( Which sucks ) ----> (TTG lower than shit)
  • same thing here, seems at about the third game, ill play once, then again with random to oppisite choices, then when i go to play the third time i get the corrupted data. not even going to start a 2nd game this time.
  • I emailed Telltale about the issue, and they told me that they have a patch comming out "very soon" to fix the issue. I still dont feel like playing through the game again like that, but i dont have much choice. I bought the Season Pass.
  • I bought the season pass for the ps3 version of this game, and have played through both of the current episodes out now counting six seperate times due to 3 corrputed save file glitches. I didn't mind so much the first time, started getting irritated the second time, now I'm just downright pissed off after losing about 24 hours worth of total game time. Apparently I'm not the only one having these sorts of problems with ps3, and I'm wondering if TTG might give me a refund, or at least allow me a download the pc version.

    We've been playing a bit of the game each evening. We had 3 saves from Episode 1 with different choices, and were half way through Episode 2 with our 2nd choice set.
    Turned the PS3 on this evening to play and got the "Your data is corrupt" message.
    This is terrible! We're going to have to do that all again. We've bought the season pass, but how can we hope to play through all the episodes if our save data is lost?
    Nightmare.
  • WOW... at the end of ep 4, saved data becomes corrupt. Game freezes. reset PS3. NOTHING THERE. Have to start ALL OVER? fuck that. i was really enjoying this game but im not playing all those again. i want a refund, this has never happened to me in any game before. most of all, i want my saves back!!

    If you have PS+ then you can copy your lost data back but it still crashes and you have one chance to copy your day within 24 hours :mad:
