mass effect trilogy import from ME1 to ME2

I just recently purchased the Mass Effect Trilogy for PS3. When I try to play Mass Effect 2, it will not recognize a save game from ME1 to import, so I can't continue my story.

Hi garbearvakarian,


I guess you have internet connection on your computer. Would it be possible for you to use that connection for a short while with your PS3? You just have to plug in your PS3 until the patch is downloaded. After that you can connect your computer again.


Hope that helps!

please help me with my problem Ursula


the problem for me is that when i exit out of ME1 the 'enter existing ID' option for a new game disappears, which obviously means ME2 will not be able to see my imported save when i ask to import a ME1 character.


i have the game patched, it is on PS3 and it is the trilogy edition


i have removed game data for both ME and ME2 and reinstalled both


the final save after defeating Saren is not 'staying saved'
