ICO wont let me save

Hey all, so I've been playing ICO on my PS2 (traded it in from goozex) and its been awesome and rad

The problem is, I've made it to this one section of the game (just after I got the sword) and suddenly the game refuses to let me save. I sit on the couch, yorda sits on the couch, the save screen pops up, but I cant select anything!

Now the D-pad works just fine, it lets move back and forth between "save" and "cancel", but the X button doesn't work. And it doesn't work when I switch controllers either. All the buttons work just fine in game, and they work just fine in all my other games, and I've never had this problem before!

So... am I totally screwed?

    It sounds silly but do you have a memory card plugged in?

    Are you using an official memory card and does it save with other games?

    It may be just a bad copy, which is probably why it was on Goozex.

    If you own a PS3 they are releasing a dual ICO/SOTC game that you could wait for.

    I've never played either game and I'm waiting so patiently for this.

    noooo goozex has never failed meeee!
    I dont own a PS3, my poor old PS2 is my only console. I have ICO and SOTC, I was just wondering if maybe there's something I could do to salvage ICO but I guessing thats not gonna be possible

    Well shoot a mile, I guess I'll just try powering through the game without using a savepoint =/

    thanks everyone!

    I thought this was you needing ICQ help. I thought I was the only one!

    Not had the problem with ICO, but what size is your memory card? I had trouble with some games not saving on my newer 64 meg card, and had to keep an 8 meg card around just for those games.

    You will not be disappointed.

    I have never had trouble saving until now, and it doesnt even give me the option to save.

    I cant even make it to the screen where I choose the file I wish to save! It freaks out when I sit on the couch and I have the option to click the "save" button (which will take me to the screen that allows me to choose where I will save) or the "cancel" button

    and then I get stuck in the menu because I cant press any buttons


    EDIT: ceres, maybe you should lock this, I get the feeling this is an unsolvable problem
    thanks for trying everyone!

    The correct answer is "Why on earth would you stop playing. One-shot it to the end"

    This is correct. To this day, and i'm a fanatic gamer having played pretty much everything, ICO *still* stands up as one of my greatest love in gaming.

    And yes i felt compelled to relate my totally unnecessary opinion in this H/A thread.
