    5 month set back

    Well, i was playing the Vita today sitting at the kitchen table...and a few minutes later it slips out of my hands (about a 4inch drop at the most) and proceeds to throw game error messages at me. So i power off, take out and put back in my game, power up, and my save data is corrupted...WTF?

    So now i have to restore my data from APRIL! AHHHHHH!


    This little POS cant survive a 4in drop???

    It could be the manner of the drop or maybe doing something to the card in the fall?

    This wouldn't have happened if you bought a 3DS.

    You should backup every week. And my Vita survived a 3 foot fall, nothing happened. I don't remember what it landed on though.

    My question is why is your table only 4 inches tall? Or were you playing with your hands way down towards the floor?

    The game or memory card may of disconnected causing data corruption, that is my guess.

    It couldn't survive 4 inches? I've dropped stuff all the time, and the only thing flimsy enough to break was my PS3 controller.

    That's surprising I dropped my Vita further than that and it was fine afterward.

    Did you remove the memory card and then reinsert it? Sometimes it gets loose when it gets bumped around. If that's not the case, then it must have been bumped a bit while it was writing to the card, and corrupted it. But just take the whole memory card out and put it back in and see what happens.

    Iv'e dropped mine down stairs.... twice and it hasn't any sign of damage. I guess you just got unlucky. I can only assume the game was saving and the cartridge must have come out slightly.

    I was online and dropped it right when it was attempting to register my score. Tried re-seating the SD card but it was a no go. Still had to use my last restore point from 4-22-2012.

    Lesson Learned.

    I've done most of that and some buttons are fucked up on my other ones (got a new one when I got another ps3), but the older one survived my fits of rage from veteran modes.

    That's really unlucky man. It's a bitch to lose 5 months of progression.
