Montly Games not Available?

5 replies 136 views Edited Aug 13, 2013

So I recently purchased the Playstation Plus subsciption after learning about the great deals. I was excited for the August games as well, however they don't seem to be available to me. When I go into the PS store, the games are still full-price. Are August's monthly deals not available to me even though I purchased the subscription during the month?

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

As soon as you subscribe to PS Plus any games currently available will also be available to you too, just because you purchased mid-month makes no difference.

 

Which game(s) are you refering to in particular?

 

I know this sounds like silly question, but you are signed in on your PS3 with the same account used to purchase the Plus Subscription correct, you would know for sure because it would show a gold d-pad icon next to your PSN ID.

 

Lastly please be aware that today (Tuesday) is the day the PS Store always updates, it is always worth waiting until the store has fully updated before trying to make an purchase on a Tuesday.

Both Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Mafia 2 are still listed as full price in the store. I got the option to do the Full game trial with Need for Speed thinking that maybe I had to do that first before I could "buy" the game. I am signed in with the same account.

I'll try again tomorrow and post a reply letting you know if it works. Thanks.

This is the Plus web page for the USA and Canada...

 

http://us.playstation.com/psn/playstation-plus/

 

The games you mentioned are in the Instant Game Collection for European (including Australia and New Zealand) Playstation Plus accounts only. If you have an account for one of those countries, then you should use the PSN site for that region (http://uk.playstation.com).  Instead of just looking through the Playstation Store to see if the games you want are in the Instant Game Collection, it would be more efficient to check the Free Games link in the Playstation Plus section of the Playstation Store, to see which games are currently in the Instant Game Collection for your account's region.

That would be the issue. I guess I didn't read it close enough to notice that it wasn't US. Thanks for the help everyone.
