Naughty Dog have swiftly fixed the autosave bug which we reported earlier to a flurry of comments. It appears the issue was related to their own servers, which didn’t seem to communicate with the game correctly.
They revealed this news via their twitter, confirming that no patch will be required in a subsequent tweet. As long as you can manage to pull yourself away from the game for long enough, quitting to the XMB and then restarting will fix all of the save issues.
If you haven’t got the game yet, which released today, have a read of our review and then try to get your hands on it so you can join in the discussion. I’ve just got in after a long day with the game in my hands, so I’m going to play it now – see you on the other side!
