! Metal Gear Solid V Save File Corruption Bug Spotted

Quiet's zipping around breaking save files

If you've been playing Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain [official site] for a bit, you may have joined up with superfast sunbathing sniper Quiet. Folks warn you that she's trouble and heck, it seems she is. Publishers Konami have warned that she may corrupt save games on certain missions, and are warning folks until they can fix it. Read on for details because I feel I've already spoiled too much in this post and know I thought "Oh huh!" when I saw a tiny insignificant detail in the announcement.

Konami explain on their support site, "there is a possibility that save data may get corrupted and becomes unusable if having Quiet as a buddy while playing 'Mission 29' or 'Mission 42'. This situation can be avoided by not using Quiet as a buddy while playing either 'Mission 29' or 'Mission 42'." This affects the game on all platforms.

"We deeply apologize, and appreciate your patience for further announcements regarding this issue," they say.

My response was: coo, it's got a minimum of 42 missions? That's... is that more than I was expecting? It's nice. I'm very excited to explore those missions. We had a big old 90-minute chat about The Phantom Pain today, and (almost) everything I see and read and play and say makes me want more. I look forward to getting to know Quiet better.
