I have been interested in this game for some time now but I have been hearing of a saving issue so I didn't get it but I was hearing that the company knew of the issue and would fix it so I wanted to know if it was ever fixed or not?.
I'm not sure whether or not there ever has been an issue with the game's auto-save mechanic. Having played much of the game recently, I can assure you that the game does hold onto its save points whenever you get to one and never lets them go.
Since Sideway has been out for nearly a year now, it could very well be the case that if there was a bug affecting the game at some point that it's been patched in these past months. If you happen to be a member of PlayStation Plus you might also be happy to know that Sideway is currently offered as a free game to members of the program. If you get Plus you'll also get Sideway: New York along with a slew of other handouts.
I found this on a website called PS3Tropies.org forum so I wanted to know if this is saying that there was a patch release for the game.
