View Full Version : Save up 150k then get 3 Achievements for free

Have a balance exceeding 150k then copy game save to spare memory card
Load backup save and buy Soul Edge and Soul Calibur (30k each)
Then goto Museum then Art Gallery and buy all Illustrations
You also need to buy all HQ Models/Promo Materials/Special - cost 90k

You will unlock-
The Contrtoller / Wild Run To Tragedy / Observer of Souls

Sign out / go back to dash and resume from original save to get you 150k
Obviously you lose all purchases but can re-buy Soul Calibur and Soul Edge
Who needs the Illustrations anyway ?

Thanks for the info. I was woundering if you get any unlockables from buying them?

Isn't using game saves illegal?

He's using his own save. If that is illegal, we all need our scores reset to 0.

Nice trick though. I already bought all but two of the illustrations so I can't use it though. :(

Don't you actually get unlockable armor for getting the "honors"?

If you really want to get as much gamerscore from this game as you can you should probably just buy it normally.

But, for quick achievements, this is a good trick.

An easier way to do this (without the need for saving at all):

When you purchase Soul Edge or Soul Calibur, you get the achievement immediately. The game does not save until you exit that character creation screen. Go in, buy the sword, you get the achievement, turn off the Xbox. Go back in, buy the other, get that achievement, turn off the Xbox. This will not work for the art work because there are multiple sections that when you exit, the game saves. You can do it on the LAST of the sections you need to purchase *saving you maybe a couple thousand*.

plus why save money when the 1,000,000 achievement isaccumulative, isnt it

Lets hope so. LOL!

well if by what your doing, technically you can get 4 achievements. You can get the buy all weapons for 5 character achievement too with 125,000, so if your loading up your save after you do your art thing and have your money back, youll get that too.

It is, I got the achievement when I only had about 600k on me :p

Nice trick in getting the achievements this way. However if you next boot up the game again, and when you check your battle records in the museum, you will realise that you didn't gain the honors for that particular achievement (which means that it doesn't help to unlock more equipments)

Just a quick note: if you bought the limited edition version of the game, you automatically get the two weapons.
