The problem is that Konami hasn't confirmed this as a function of the patch itself, only as a feature of the "best" budget version of the game, coming to retail around the same time in August.
As someone who has a save file before every boss in the game, not having to constantly re-install every chapter separately will be a God-send. I just hope it comes in the form of a patch, as one lone feature will be a hard sell for a double-dip.
