According to both Tawkn (linked above) as well as users on the http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/adventure/residentevil5/show_msgs.php?topic_id=m-1-49942359&pid=929198, the Resident Evil 5 Patch 1.03 is now available and apparently it has removed gamesave protection so users can back them up.
To quote: Fire up Resident Evil 5 and you will be prompted to download the 38MB v1.03 patch. But what has changed?
Well, the only thing I noticed so far is that saved game data is no longer copy-protected! This is a huge, huge plus in my eyes.
Its extremely useful to me. Like I said I have two PS3's and I didnt feel like beating the game all over again just so I could play it in the other room. Why copy protect something that just hinders the people who bought it?
