I dont see the idea of locking files to a unique ISN ID rather good, simply I have 3 IDs on my system (US, EU, JP) :)

I have 4 ID\'s myself (US, EU, JP, HK), but those are just for downloading demos or free stuff from other stores.

But I game on my main US PSN ID.

Wow, I guess I dodged a bullet.  Then again I don't own that many PS3 games.  It would've killed me if I couldn't have transfered over my PixelJunk Monsters saved game files!  And I was halfway through R&C Tools of Destruction when we upgraded to the Slim.  It all went smoothly for us.

Woah... I didn\'t even know some game saves were locked. Meh, it doesn\'t really bother me, for now at least.

Has anyone had any luck with making an image / ghosting a PS3 drive? 

Anyone know of a partition manager that works with the PS3 disk format?

Yea Skate 3 and Skate 2 have locked game saves.

I wanted to back up my save file and start skating from the beginning, but don't want to lose it all if I change my mind.

i bought gt5 and probally got 50 hours in the game. the game rocks i love it on the most part.

two things i dont like is only some of the cars have the in the car view i wish all of them did. i can live with that though.

maby some day they could add all of the in car view as a add on that would be great lol. well the other thing i dont like

is the locked save game file. come on man are you kidding me what are they thinking about when they decided to lock this up?

all the hours ive played this game will be lost if my system crashes. i dont know if i even want to play it anymore because it

takes so long to build up your money to buy all the cars you need to win or just have for your collection . now i dont feel like

racing hurndreds of hours of my life when a crash will delete them forever. i'm very dissapointed in gt5 and psn for allowing this to go on

come on man unlock this non sence so we can enjoy are very costly games forever not for the life of my ps3

Pretty sure the latest GT5 Update removed the locked game save.

Don't get your hopes up on past games getting the game saves unlocked.

Now, if everyone doesn't want to have to worry about a game having a locked save file.. let's remember that thanks to PS+ and Cloud Saving now ALL save files can be backed up!
