Gamespot has news that Dead or Alive 4 has a glitch that could cause all of your save games to be erased. A very sad problem for all those spending hundreds of hours on the Xbox 360 only to find they have to start back at square one.
Was gintheplacetobe’s experience an isolated case of bad luck, or a more widespread problem? After a several-day lag, a Tecmo rep indicated that there is a problem with some copies of the game. “We’re aware of the issue you’re referring to,” the rep told GameSpot. “We’re working to identify and resolve the potential problem with the technical folks at Microsoft.” The rep said a patch would be coming soon.
So what can DOA4 players do in the meantime to ensure their hard-fought DOA4 victories don’t vanish into thin air? Tecmo technical support says to do the following: (1) With your copy of DOA4 already inserted, turn on your 360 by pressing the “open tray” button. (2) Wait until all the information from your Gamer Profile is fully displayed on your Gamer Card, including achievements and other awards. (3) Close the tray again with DOA4 still inserted. If problems still occur, e-mail Tecmo technical support at email@example.com.
And now, just like PC games, we have to wait for a patch. How rediculous.
