View Full Version : Why some game saves editable and others arent

My question is why are ps3 borderlands saves editable while most other ps3 games cannot be? I thought the ps3 itself encrypted the saves not the game. If you didnt know and want to edit yours use this willow tree. You can edit your exp money skill points, add weapons among a million other things.

Each game has it's own savegame hander on the PS3, Some of them (just rare though) share the same decompression method as Xbox 360/PC, This is why borderlands can be edited, The same with the Call of Duty games.

resident evil 5 is the same way. that can be edited as well.

Sorry to necro this thread, but somebody should make a list of all the PS3 games that can be edited. I'd gone on for years believing all PS3 saves were unbreakable, so I didn't even bother trying with it in the past. Hell, if even a few of the games are as easy to edit as most of the 360 games out there, then there's no reason we can't start developing tools for them as well; the only problem we have right now is knowing which games those are.

I honestly thought that once the scene started to explode for the custom firmware on the PS3, that tools would be developed to be able to decompress, rehash and sign PS3 saves. I waited and waited for this, but have not seen it come to light. This is just another reason why I am more dedicated to my XBOX then my PS3 (also helped that they killed my ability to install linux).

If you have a ps3 on cfw then you can download the cheat pkgs. thats why they gave up on doing stuff with the saves.
