    Need Some Urgent Info!

    Post by aerims on Sun Mar 17, 2013 2:03 am

    Hello fellow Dark Soul players!

    I haven't played for ages and recently I have this feeling to start playing again. I bought the DLC from the NA/US PSN store but I didn't know that my Dark Soul game disc is EU, so the DLC which I bought from the NA/US PSN won't work in my game since the regions don't match(from what I read in some forums).

    My question is, since now all I can do is going to a game store and get the hard copy with the DLC implemented in it, will I be able to insert the new disc and continue playing my SAVED GAMES, or will it create a different Dark Souls folder in my PS3 storage which would cause me to start a new game all over again?

    Please let me know asap and thanks in advance.

    As long as the data is on your system you should be able to play all your files regarless if the disk is different or not. Getting another hard copy with or without the DLC should still enable you to play on all your old save files since, DLC or no, it's all saved under your system's data as "Dark Souls." There isn't separate game data for "Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition" so you should be fine.

    From my experience it is possible. I sold a copy of Dark Souls and bought another one back later and I could use my saved toons with the new disc. No problem.

    That's crap. I would freak out if I had that problem. :evil:

    Have you tried it? Because i'm pretty sure the vast majority of PS3 game discs are non region specific. Definately bought US games(i'm EU) and got dlc on them.

    Thanks for the info, guys.

    Also, yes. I made a new character, killed hydra and saved Dusk from the golem, summoned her and bought all of her spells(just in case), and then went to kill that blue crystal golem in duke's archives(the one on the first floor after the bonfire), but the pendant didn't drop, even though I've repeated killing him several times.
