This corrupts game saves on the system, what if you backed up your saves to the cloud service? All PS+ subscribers have this option, are those online saves being effected to?
If I had a corrupt or lost save file I'd just recover my last uploaded save from the cloud. At least you wouldn't have to start from scratch :/

KillrateOmega1669d ago

I would think that your cloud backed-up saves would alright. I could be wrong though, the article didn't mention if the corruption was limited to your HDD or SSD.

My Battlefield 4 single player progress keeps disappearing. Anyone have the same issue? Might possibly be on EA's end too.

That's all ea. that's been happening from day one . I've played the first mission 4 times. Finally gave up.

Yeah all you can hear from the first mission is Recker do this Recker do that. Its like you keep playing just a demo with no progress at all. But there is a solution my friends. Read my last post below about the cloud saving, and playing BF4 offline.

Sephiroushin1669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

Battlefield 4 is the issue, that game has been messed up since day one !

Ashunderfire861669d ago (Edited 1669d ago )

Same here but here is a solution to that. Play Battlefield 4 single player with cloud saves on, or play it offline. I recommend offline more, because when you get to the level Old Town, the game gets an error for some reason. Then you see a error feedback message come up. This happened to me.

imt5581669d ago

Yes, the Old Town is the problem.

I will copy/paste my solution :

I had problem with BF4. I just playing the game and suddenly this error! And was repeating again on the same level ( checkpoint ). But that's a BF4 issue. No problem with Killzone, Resogun, Knack....

But no problem with that. Solution is :

Upload the save file on PS+ cloud ( just in case ). Delete the game entirely. Sign out of PSN, disconnect the PS4 from network, install the game again and play ( without sing-in on PSN and connect the PS4 on internet ). When you cross this problematic checkpoint or level, connect to network and download the latest patch available again and continue play the game.

It's BF4, same thing happens on the PS3. It's the poster child for how not to release a game.

WolvesDude1669d ago

Play BF4 with automatic cloud backup saves disabled. Manually back it up to the cloud when you know your local save is good.
It's a pain in the butt, but worked for me though after I kept loosing campaign progress.
It could work for other games too I should imagine.

Whats with all these errors? PS OS having issues?

XtraTrstrL1669d ago

I don't understand, what about the PS+ uploaded saves, they are corrupted also?

I haven't had this issue, but I don't play it much. I'm still annoyed at the inconsistent share feature. It rarely works properly, and saves videos of gameplay from like an hour earlier, or saves no vids at all. A new patch needs to come out already, it seems the OS was really not complete at launch. Both systems seem to have been released too early. I'm a little regretful now that I got a PS4 this early, I should have waited until atleast the 2nd internal design was implemented. We are basically beta testers.
