1. Get a few rare/valuable cars on your main save
2. Back up main save to a flash drive
3. Create a new profile and PSN account
4. Instead of creating a new GT5 save to go with the new account, use the backup
5. You will now have two saves full of rare cars instead of one. You can "trade" the duplicates on that account for other cars you don't have yet, or trade off the main save and send the traded car(s) back to your main save immediately.
Although there are some people who would rather not dupe, duping is completely acceptable on major GT forums such as GTP. The main reason I don't do it is because I'm too lazy and don't have anything worth duping. I probably should back up, though, since no backup = hosed game progress if my PS3 dies.

Oh. So it just enables someone to enjoy a bunch of different cars they probably don't have the spare time to develop themselves.
Yeah nothing bad there.
Flash drives are not the best backups. cd or dvd media with verifing the data after write, as well as zip archive all the files and copy it to some section of the drive as well as cd / dvd media with verifying.
Thanks for that, totally understand the mods response now. _________________ The important thing is knowing who owns the fence

Oh yeah, flash drive for a start, then place the info on computer to back up.
I've had files on flash die a couple of days later, but that may have had something to do with traveling at the time.
I'd probably try a usb2usb network to backup from the ps3 or an external drive, but I'm not familiar with ps3. It's sony. I haven't forgiven Sony for their entry into the copyright crap, though I think they tried to extract themselves from the mess. But still, I avoid the brand entirely. I'm like that. _________________ The important thing is knowing who owns the fence
