last month i decided to backup my launch 60gb Ps3. took 6 hours to backup 250gb worth of game updates/music/photos/videos/themes...etc
last weekend my ps3 died. so i decided to restore the backed-up date onto my new slim ps3. well the restoring process took about 14 minutes
well, this is what happened, i had to manually install the firmware update from my PC onto a usb drive then to my ps3
then my purchased themes were corrupt. all of them
my purchased videos didnt transfer and i was asked by the PS store to reBUY all of them again. are you kidding me.
and certain videos dont even exist on the ps store anymore
my ps1/ps2 game save date didnt transfer... why? my FF7 save data
not to mention now the cheap slim ps3 doesnt play ps2 game.
i had to re download tons of dlc and updates back from the store Again. i mean who really enjoy browsing the outdated sluggish and slow PS store. not to mention the download speed are horribly slow. it was a pain the first time. and i realized that after downloading tons of crap from the store, it will give out an error code related to the cache, which will only go away by restarting the system.
my trophies took forever to sync with the server. my game save data feature (PS+) skipped out on few saves for some reason and only transfered 80% of them to the new PS3. i had to do some of them manually.
i was shocked to see some pictures and couple mp3 made it into the new ps3 alive.
my point is.. good job SONY. YOU SUCK. stop being stupid. make things easier. not harder for your loyal fans. i never owned an xbox but im sure it cant get any worse then this.
