Capcom has announced the latest in their "fuck the customer" line of games, after the debacle of Bionic Commando purchasers losing access to their title when Sony's PSN went down. The upcoming Resident Evil: Mercenaries for the 3DS will have a single, unwipable save slot that prevents players from starting over from scratch.|
Basically what Capcom has done is make Mercenaries 3D a one-time play affair. Once you've unlocked all the goodies and played the entire game, you will not be able to erase the game's save data and start fresh as if it were a new copy. Consider this: lending Mercenaries 3D to a friend, a little brother or sister will be worthless because they'll only be able to continue playing the game with your saved settings and create their own.It's like they WANT nobody to buy the game.
