Charged for Don't Starve with PS Plus

Jan 7, 2014

So on playstation's blog, they said that Don't Starve: Console Edition would be free for PS plus members. Well, I downloaded it and checked my transaction history and it turns out I was charged for the game. I called Sony and their representative insisted that Don't Starve is NOT free... Anyone have any luck with downloading the supposedly-free game?

The store hasn`t completely finished updating yet, the game will be free, but when the store finishes updating. You should not of went through the purchase if it showed a charge, at the moment it`s not even marked as free. Your only option is to try and contact Sony, but make sure you know for next time, wait until the store updates and don`t go through with the purchase if it does not show free, as you will be charged.

Don't Starve not free with active PS+ membership!

Jan 7, 2014

Don't Starve says it is $14.99 but when I go to purchase it, it warns me that the game is currently free for PS+ members and then adds to cart as a $14.99 game even though my subscription is active.

Don't Starve says it's free, but costs $15

Jan 7, 2014

Ok, so I might be crazy, but I'm pretty sure (and I can probably upload a photo) that Don't Starve is marked as FREE for PS+ users (that's me), but when I try to download it, the system tries to bill me the $14.99 price for non-members.

The thing is that when you click to purchase it, it brings up a notice saying that the game is a free download for plus members. Then it charges you $14.99. I think it should be fixed. I guess the point is if it doesn't say free don't click purchase.
