Goshdangit! My NASCAR 09 Gamesave Done Blowed Up!

Kotaku writes: What is going on at EA Sports? First came the manifold glitches and problems in NCAA 09, now we're seeing accounts of corrupt profiles forcing Xbox 360 racers to ditch their gamesaves and start all over.

After reaching a certain level of progress - the theory is cumulative laps driven, as it's struck gamers at differing points in their careers - the profile becomes corrupted and freezes the game right at the load screen. There is no other way to play the game except to delete the file and start all over. You can see a video of it here - but it takes 7 minutes to explain what was just said above. There is, however, a swell parakeet whistling in the background.

Of course, using a memory stick and disabling auto-save is one workaround. That doesn't help anyone who had no idea he'd bought a defective game and finds out about this after putting 20 or 30 hours worth of effort into it.

Reader S.H. (who tipped this bug to kotaku) says EA Sports is not responding to forum posts, emails or any calls for help (which the video helpfully points out). No wonder they're putting Peter Moore's face into a boxing game. That'll probably crash, too.

Seriously, EA Sports, why is it amateur hour all of a sudden? What the f**k is the matter with you people?

The story is too old to be commented.

I cant believe they still cant get it right. Im so freakin skeptical about Mercs 2 if they cant even get this right.

Funny offensive title to Nascar fans though.

is why I wanted to comment. I've never laughed out loud at a news title at N4G before..."Gamesave Done Blowed Up!" funniest thing I've seen on this site in a while.

Kotaku is trash, but EA sports is still at fault here. Peter needs a new tattoo.
