Ah. I forgot all about the customized characters. It can't hurt to try a transfer, it might just work. And if it doesn't at least you'll know you tried absolutely everything before being forced to reboot over all your save adata.
Does Mod Nation Racers get difficult? I have heard that it's really fun. Oh man. DW games are never games you want to lose your save data for. sad Maybe you'll get into a good groove and be able to replay those games back to the point you had saved without too much hassle.
Yikes. That's no fun. I hope you don't lose any save data that would be too much of a pain to replay and get back. I've been weighing the idea of getting a PS4 myself, might still wait into next year when a lot more games will come out. This summer was fairly hectic with working, and family stuff. Looking forward to a bit of a slower pace as autumn comes in. The love life has been non-existent, but that is for the best at this time.
