    Dude you are a retard. Of course a Japanese version .sav file won't work for a US version of the game.

    It's like putting a boat steering wheel into a car and thinking you can actually drive that car; just because they are both steering wheels doesn't mean they work with each other.

    It's also like trying to use air freshener as deodorant; just because they are both products use to mask an odor doesn't mean that it'll work.

    It's also like using crayola water based paint as an interior paint; just because they are both paint, doesn't mean it'll work.

    No need for the name calling but a good analogy.Just as he said though Japanese games CAN'T use a US game's save and a US game CAN'T use a Japanese game's save.

    I can't help but call people retards when it's common knowledge. Try sticking a guy's private part into a girl's butt and make a baby. It won't work!

    It varies depending on the game in question. Works for some, not others. There's no compatibility list. So it's trial and error.

    Actually, theres several games where the US and JP saves work with one another so this is actually a valid question. Though more often than not, it doesn't work or the saves require some minor modifications to work.

    Probably something that's uberadvance technobabble and way beyond the capabilities of your average gamer.
