Batman: Arkham City PS3 Game of the Year Edition

Filed in: .

Is a game I have been having tremendous trouble with technically speaking. Oh, playing it is fine, but I keep getting errors saying "The game data is corrupted. The game will close. You must delete the game data to play this game". At first it was only when I started a new game, but it seems to have somehow spread to my existing game save at well now.

It seems to be a semi-common problem dating back to the release of the game, which doesn't have a concrete solution. In a lot of places, there's someone going "I had this problem, and reinstalling the gamedata/copying the savegame around/sticking my elbow in my ear fixed it" but no actual firm solutions.

I've thus far tried:

  • Deleting the game data (as the error suggests!) sometimes works, sometimes makes no difference.
  • Backing up the save game (as suggested here) - no change.
  • Rebuilding the database from the PS3 recovery menu (suggested here) - no change.

There, uh, might be some sort of patch for the game, I expect, but I can't find anywhere on the official site to check, so... yeah, no solutions yet.
