MotorStorm Apocalypse surprisingly sort of works with the retail save. The EU version only recognized my trophies, but the US version recognized my MP rank, medal challenges, icons, and perks while not recognizing single-player progress and parts challenges. So it's an oddity, but the MP rank is the thing that's most important to me because the last few trophies that I have are for ranking up and punching a dude off of a bike or ATV.

Prince of Persia also works.

Red Dead Redemption works, though I only loaded it up, and didn't actually play it at all. The loading times are still atrocious:bomb:

Mass Effect 2 works, so I'm guessing ME3 would as well. I didn't have enough space to download them both though, and I think I should give my PS3 a rest after running for more than 24 hours.

I can confirm that Saints Row: The Third and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune works with retail saves. Sorcery does not work with retail saves.

I thought I had confirmed that Sports Champions didn't, but I noticed after it expired that my retail save wasn't actually on my PS3 at the time. Oops.

anyone know if sleeping dogs retail works with the digital counterpart?

Edit: I can confirm that Sleeping dogs retail works with the digital version. I just checked this morning after downloading the game from PS+ :bouncy:

Anyone know if PSABR digital will recognize disc save?

i can confirm retail game saves work on the digital version of xcom: enemy unknown. also i played the first hour of mass effect 3 on a trial, then started back up in the same spot when i purchased the retail game, so its good to go as well.

Crap, why do they do this with the Lego games?  I was going to trade in PotC and pick up the PSN copy but now I may just forget it.  I wonder if it is the same with Lego Batman 2?

There's a Full Game Trial for it, so you can test it out for yourself to see if your retail save works with it.

Yay, I can finally contribute (I think).

 

I owned the retail version of the Ratchet & Clank collection, and played about 90 minutes of the first game.  Traded it in and bought the digital version, and the save file worked fine on the digital version.

 

So I can't speak for the sequels, but the original games save files are compatible.

Not sure why Demon's Souls is marked with the red asterisk denoting incompatibility. I own disk and downloaded copies of both the European (Namco Bandai) and American (Atlus) releases, and both digital games had no problem loading up my old physical copies' save files. (I can't check the Japanese version -- I own the disk but not the download.)

 

EDIT for clarity's sake: EU and USA copies have separate servers, save files, and trophy lists, but each separate version can freely share a save file between disk and digital.

The Lego Batman 2 retail save file is not compatible with the digital copy. Really disappointing since I was so close to unlocking the last character on my hard copy save.

Carnival Island is not compatible, even though your list says it is. I sold my retail copy and just bought the digital, and had to restart all over. Trophies stay the same but yeah...im just kinda pissed sony didnt think this over...

The list doesn't say anything about Carnival Island being compatible or not, but thanks for confirming that it's not.

Decided to do a Full Game trial of GTA IV does this mean it doesn't work with the physical copy though? 

I know that the green asterisk says what works and what doesn't but it's on the list but only in gray has anyone tried it? I also know that PSN has GTA 4 and Liberty City Stories separate for trials however if I purchased the collection would it work?

I may not understand your questions completely, so I'll see if I can answer them.

 

If you have the GTA IV full game trial, you should be able to instantly tell if it works with your retail save based on whether it starts from the beginning or not. Nobody has posted yet as to whether they're compatible or not.

 

Episodes From Liberty City is a standalone game that lets you just play the two pieces of DLC with none of the content from GTAIV, so I don't believe it's compatible with GTA IV saves in any way. If you grab the Ultimate Edition, you just gets the add-ons for GTAIV along with the main game, so the save compatibility should work the same as GTA IV.

I haven't purchased GTA 4 yet I got the trial because it's free. I was just wondering if the save is multi-purpose.

I'm pretty sure that the GTA IV save doesn't work with Episodes From Liberty City and vice versa. The Ultimate Edition should work just fine with GTA IV saves since you get the same base GTA IV game.

This reddit thread says that Far Cry 3 retail and digital saves are not compatible.

Oh I'm sure the GTA IV save doesn't work with Liberty City. I was asking if I purchased the collection would a save for GTA IV work for GTA IV and the same idea with Gay Tony and Lost and the Damned.

Mugen Souls and God of War Ascension share the same IDs between retail and digital, so they should be compatible.

No info on ICO or SotC?  Now that those are both free on PS+, thinking about selling the disc.

If they have demos, you could try seeing if the demo used your current save file. That's how I tested it with God of War and God of War 2.
