I have the same problem. Purchased my PS3 around a month when they first came out...I have the original version. Never have had a save error before till a day ago.
I was controlling Lee in the house on episode 4 when I walked up to examine the dog food bag it froze. Said that the save file was corrupted and would attempt to recreate. I hit X button hear beep then another beep and game froze. Waited 8 minutes and nothing so I power down PS3 and restart to find out all 3 of my saved games are gone. Yeah real unhappy about that...all that time and effort down the drain.
From the looks of these forums I'm not alone, and I expect more of these posts to pile up as well. Telltale I would suggest you take these posts seriously. Players will only replay through the game so many times...now with the knowledge that after playing through it again only to lose all data a second time means people will stop playing your game till a fix comes out.
Personally I wont purchase another episode or play the game till a fix is released.
