Transfering saves between Vita and PS3 possible? FFVII

13 replies 25387 views Edited Sep 5, 2012

Hi guys. Im kinda new to the whole vita-ps3 interaction. I usually just play my games individually on each system and thats it...

 

Recently though, i bought FFVII on my vita and downloaded it directly from the PS Store to the vita.

 

Im wondering though, now that im a couple of hours into the game, will i be able to transfer my save to the ps3 if i ever feel like playing on my tv?

I know i can redownload the game to the ps3 since i purchased it, but is it possible to bring over my save from my vita? If so, can i have a few steps on doing so?

 

Thanks to everyone in advance.

That should be no problem.

 

When you conect your Vita to the PS3, start Content Manager on the Vita and pick Vita to PS3. You can then pick out game data and copy it over.

Any PSP, PS1 Classics, or Mini save data that is in the Application Data Management utility in the Settings app, can be copied to the PS3 using the Content Manager.   Just open the Content Manager, select Copy Content PS Vita -> PC, Applications, and Playstation under the Saved Data category.  Then just select the save data that you want to copy, and tap the Copy button.  The save data may be copied via the PS Vita System Application Utility on the PS3 to any of the virtual PS1 memory cards on the PS3, where it can be accessed by the same game running on the PS3.   You can also do the reverse.  Copy save data from virtual PS1 memory cards via the PS Vita System Application Utility, to the virtual memory cards on the Vita. You can also use the Content Manager to copy save data between the Vita and the PSP / Mini Save Data Utility on the PS3.

No.  The Content Manager only supports wireless connectivity with PCs, and PSN online storage, at this time.

So, is there a way that I can move my FF Tactics save that was originally created on my PS3 and uploaded to Online Storage to my PS Vita via Content Manager while I'm away from the PS3?

On my Vita, I go into Content Manager, select Online Storage, and from there it wont let me see any saved games, even though Final Fantasy Tactics is available for PS3 and Vita (and I have the full game on both)

PS1 classics saves can't be backed up to the cloud.

Correct.   Only PSVita games are backed up to the cloud.

 

If you want multiple backups, copy the save file to the PS3, a PSP, or use a flash drive/external hard drive/SD card/MS Pro Duo stick.

 

You MUST have the save data files in a specific folder on the main flash drive root directory.

 

Like F:/SAVEDATA   F:/MUSIC   F:/PICTURE  etc

 

Best to copy a save directly to a flash drive so you have an idea what to do.

I did this to save my save game files.  There is an option to transfer game data, but no option to transfer save game files for ps vita games.  There is the option for older systems like psp, but not for vita.  Is the save game info stored inside the game data?  Thanks!
