Konami have released a patch for the PlayStation 3 version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
Gasp! I know, I mentioned the unmentionables. Anyways, this patch fixes some of the game saving issues that people were reporting.
this from the patch notes:
Resolve the “save game” issues related to user interaction with controller buttons (PlayStation button and SELECT), or disconnection of the controller while the auto-save icon is on-screen. The patch will also offer cosmetic upgrades such as ability for the loading screen text to scroll improving user readability.
Now replace Xbox button and the back button and you have recreated the same issues. Konami has promised that this patch will arrive soon.
