Spotted! Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Unable To Transfar To PS Vita

by Chris CalasahanMarch 26, 2012

Transfarring was supposed to be latest and greatest thing in gaming.  It was meant to allow players to transfer their games from system to system so they wouldn’t lose their progress and be able to work on the same game.  This was meant for titles such as Metal Gearl Solid: HD Collection allowing continuous play though the PSP, Vita or PS3.  However, being as new as it is, clearly it hasn’t been perfected yet as an issue has just been spotted  like a Snake in a moving box.

A reader at Joystiq has discovered that Peace Walker save content can transfer to the PSP game as promised, however it will not work when the PSP game is running for the PS Vita.   The security restrictions do not allow direct transferring of save data in the game.  This proves to be problematic as the PS Vita HD Collection does not include Peace Walker.

There are more complications with Peace Walker on a Vita.  In North America, Peace Walker is not available through the Vita PlayStation Store. Players can move it over if they already bought it already, or they can buy it through the PS3, but unfortunately players are unable to buy it from the Vita directly.  Hopefully realizations like this will help improve the Vita in the future as it sounds like Vita sounds like the handheld to own.

    I know it’s a various game but do I want to know the plot of Moveable Ops to comprehend Peace Walker?

  • Marcia Hester

    I’ve been plying ‘Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker’ and I am informed that there is a tie in with ‘Assassin’s Creed’ and there is some way much too unlock a hay bail for use in missions. Can anybody tell me how to unlock it?

    Snake will be a minor boy in the time of Peace Walker when it comes out, I have a prediction that you are likely to meet him or see him as a little boy, now that would be fairly epic sh*t lol.

    Can i play mgs peace walker psp version on vita and if so how do i get it on the vita

  • MexicanDude

    I’d love to get into the series. I only played most of the first Metal Gear Solid. My PS3(I bought from the Playstation Classic from the online store) got corrupted so I had to delete my data. I left off at the part where Snake has to take down Liquid in the helicopter. If I just watch a walkthrough on Youtube and buy the Metal Gear Solid collection, will I be able to understand the story for MSG4?

    Ok so raiden is a cyborg through out metal gear solid 4 and he lose BOTH his arms saving snake. but at the end in the epilogue he was a 100% human and had both his arms?? and now he is going to be in metal gear solid 5 rise as a cyborg. can some one please explain to me how he turned from cyborg to human.

    I own and have played both Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and I honestly have no idea how I’m supposed to play them. Can you sneak around and kill guards using stealth techniques, or is it better to cautiously slip past without having any contact with enemies?

    IGN says it’s import only and might be in a pack with MGS2 and 3…. I’m in Korea, so no biggie hopping over to Japan, but I would still like to see a US release.

  • Thomas Lopez

    Mgs: peace walker is coming out for ps3 and I have it for psp already. But do you have to buy the ps3 version in order to transfer the save data to the ps3?

  • The Villain

    Say I had an unlimited budget (lol!) and wanted to build a real live working metal gear like in the games, how would I go about it?
    P.S, it would be a REX-type vehicle and I would base my design on the mech from the game Ring Of Red .

    I have a PSP 3000 with no more space on my pro duo. So does MGS Peace Walker come with an actual UMD or does it just come with a code to enter on Playstation Network?

  • PillowMan1234

    I’m curious. Before i get Metal gear Soild 4 i want to get a better understanding on Soild snake..

    I keep hearing a lot of Liquid Snake and solid snake and i want to know what’s the difference between those two and what effect one hand on the other in the Metal Gear or MGS world?
