So as you know.. Battlefield three is coming to instant collection today and I wanted to know if I could sort of predownload it? I mean I would download the full game trial, install it, wait for PSN store to update with the full game and then purchase the full game for free.. Would that work? PLEASE LMK..
I believe that would work. You'd have to play the full hour of the timed trial before the full game would unlock, though. Then it's a matter of going to the Store after the PS+ update, 'purchasing' the game, then cancelling the download.
If you don't want to play on the timed trial, you could just start the game (to start the 60 minute trial) then quit the game, wait an hour and then 'purchase' the game.
I don't think that would work. The full game trial is not the same download as the full game, and having something added to the Playstation Plus section of the Playstation Store does not change the way that a full game trial for the same game would work. Why do you need to pre-download it? The game came out over a year ago. What's your hurry at this point?
Finish playing the trial first, or just start a new game and then wait an hour at the first prompt. It is the same thing. Then you should be able to purchase the game for free with your Plus subscription.
