Mass Effect 3 For The 360 Won’t Transfer Via Cloud (unless)

If your an Xbox 360 user and played Mass Effect 2, you might find this news upsetting this is if your save is located on the cloud. But if can move your saved file back to your original system. It should work out fine. Sadly, if you don’t have access to your original system, you my friend are boned.

EA has released a troubeshooting guide to help you get back into space. There is a possibility to take a cloud (saved) game that was saved just before the game ended and then save it onto your system. This does not guarantee that it will work.

EA has this to say:

“We are currently aware of an issue that may prevent Xbox 360 users from importing their Mass Effect 2 save game files into Mass Effect 3.”

Mass Effect 3 does not support cloud saves from Mass Effect 2. This can cause it to not recognize save files that have been transferred via cloud to a device other than the one where they originated. Therefore, the following scenarios will result in no import functionality.

  1. Moving your save file from the hard drive disc to the cloud.
  2. Moving your save file to another X360 system via the cloud (instead of a memory card or other device).

Solution to scenario 1:

  • Move your save file from the cloud back onto the hard drive from which it originated, i.e. the X360 you originally created the save file on.

Solution to scenario 2:

  • Move your save file from the cloud back onto the hard drive from which it originated, i.e. the X360 you originally created the save file on.
  • Using a memory card, USB stick, or Xbox 360 HDD transfer cable, transfer the save file to the new X360.
