We have no complaints regarding Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain as such. On the contrary, it is one of the best titles we have played this year, apart from the likes of Bloodborne and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. However, every game out there is haunted by a few small bugs and the new MGS isn't any different.
As far as the aforementioned "small bugs" are concerned, it has to be said that there are many such bugs that have been reported for the game since release. Prior to this, using Quiet as a partner in Mission 29 or 42 was known to corrupt the player's save file, losing all their progress up to that point.
And although that problem was eliminated later, it seems like there's a new kind of save big that has now affected the game and made the community look for a fix.
According to reports, a number of PS4 players have found that their save files have once more been corrupted. As it turns out, gamers playing the title on a PS4 with more than one Sony Entertainment Network account are being subjected to a broken save file.
The issue, as reported by GameSpot, is said to leave the player with an error message: "This save data cannot be used, as the relevant downloadable content was not found." Unfortunately, the problem also leaves the user unable to launch the game.
As you may expect, Konami is currently working on a fix that will allow players to have more than one Sony Entertainment Network account. However, at the moment the publisher is only recommending using a single account per console.
