    Soul Calibur: Lost Swords Unplayable, For Now

    While the F2P fighting game is out, players are unable to play the game due to an error.

    Even though it's a single-player game, when you fire it up, the game requires you to connect to its servers. Apparently, this is where the issue lies. The PS3 produces an error message and kicks the player back to the title screen. While it hasn't affected all players, the error is very common.


    Bandai Namco is aware of the issue, and they are working to come up with a resolution.

    We have discovered that the issue requires a resolution across multiple parties and therefore our efforts to remedy the issue is taking longer than anticipated." the publisher said last night on the Soulcalibur Facebook page. "Currently we are working feverishly with a key partner to implement a solution in the shortest amount of time possible

    The same thing happens to Destiny of Spirits. F2P games always have server problems

    I finally was able to log in today and not get the Error 1098, however after creating a character once I tried to do the tutorial mission I got a new error 2028 and was booted out yet again. So they got one problem down but there is at least one more.

    I have a similar problem with Namco's other F2P title, Tekken Revolution. Whenever I attempt to play the game, it fails to upload the Game Save and boots me back to the title screen. On the rare occasion I do manage to connect, I can't get into a match . US or EU version makes no difference - the same fucking annoying problem is blocking me from getting 100% of the trophies.

    I'll put Lost Swords into the same "not with a bargepole" category and I can't be arsed to download it. Free trophies just ain't worth the grief handed out by unreliable servers.

    I had already downloaded the Japanese version & 100%’ed the Trophies, even though I didn’t really understand much of the item & upgrade menus. I never had any error messages. When I saw it was finally out in English, I downloaded it again, hoping to see what all I was missing out on due to my lack of understanding Japanese, but I am completely unable to access the North American version of the game. If it had not been for this thread, I would have remained under the impression that my playing the JP version first was the problem, but now I’m relieved to see that it’s not the case. Oddly though, I can still boot up the JP version without any issues. Another thing strange about it though, is that when I first tried to load the NA version, it created more save data. I have both the NA and JP versions of Tekken Revolution downloaded, and they both access a single game save, so I’m confused as to why SC Lost Swords has two. I’ve even tried completely deleting my JP data (I backed up the save first, of course) but that didn’t fix the error. That was obviously while I still believed it to be a more isolated problem. Hopefully they resolve this soon enough. For those of you who haven’t played it, it’s a hell of a lot of fun.

    I have been able to play it quite a bit the last 2 days and occasionally I have issues where I cant connect but it seems like they have somewhat fixed the issue making the game unplayable
