MGS 5 The Phantom Pain Save Bug on PlayStation 4 Reported
Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain is one of the most popular games we have in the market right now, however, the game is still not free of bugs.
Konami has added a new notification denoting that “PS4 version save data [is] being rendered unusable,” where they have acknowledged that there is a new save bug on the platform.
The error message that certain players are receiving reads “this save data cannot be used, as the relevant downloadable content was not found.” This occurs when there are multiple Sony Entertainment Network accounts linked to the game.
here’s an excerpt from the acknowledgement:
We have been made aware of cases where playing Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain with multiple SEN accounts on a single PlayStation 4 system can result in the message ‘this save data cannot be used, as the relevant downloadable content was not found.’ being displayed when attempting to resume a saved game, making it impossible to start the game.
Konami has also apologized for this but requested that one SEN account should be used.
However, The Phantom Pain developers are currently working on solving this problem. More updates will be shared on this matter very soon. In the end they have thanked the fans for their patience.
