PS+ Full GAME TRIAL TO FULL GAME CONVERSION help! WDF

9 replies 590 views Edited Jul 2, 2013
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?

agreed with GK having an expired time trial download does not become a full unlocked version when it becomes part of the IGC on plus from what I know

Guys, can you help me? I had already downloaded the Time Trial for Battlefield 3 weeks ago, and yesterday, when it became available for free download, I couldn't purchase it, because it is marked as already purchased! I haven't played the time trial yet, after I play it, the game will continue to work?

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.
