Can't Collect Multiplayer Beta Champion Armor & Blade

4 replies 122 views Edited Apr 23, 2013

I played the Playstation Plus members-only multiplayer beta of the game in addition to the public one, and still have all the differences between those and the current version of the multiplayer now available in my mind. I deleted the beta once I got into a couple weeks of gameplay after the game's official launch, completely forgetting about the Champion set till recently due to the devs failing to send out a reminder via PSN, email, at launch, or even in-game. When I went to go redeem it, I could not.

 

Researching the situation, there are people with the same problem. The beta is no longer listed in our subscriptions or transaction history because the beta was removed entirely off the Playstation Network. The only proofs that I have left is the fact that my username was probably logged as one of the beta testers, I can recite the differences to the current state of multiplayer, and the big one being that I still have the beta's data in both my Game and Saved Data Utility folders.

 

Can the devs please properly notify Sony of the problem that removing the beta from PSN has short-handed those devoted to the God Of War series? The Sony support specialists I spoke to had no idea why players like me could not locate the download in our Transaction History, even though we clearly have had helped develop the multiplayer from the start with the data to prove it. I just want to have access to the Champion Set.

You can only download the Champion' set from the PS Store that you downloaded the beta, no matter if you played on other accounts or if you still have the beta installed.

Furinho, your message implies that there are multiple PS Stores, which we know there aren't. And according to the Playstation Support Reps I spoke to, you do need to be on the account that the beta was installed. Considering I've had only one account since the PS3's launch, the only reason why we can't receive the beta content is because the GoW:A devs removed the beta from Network and failed to notify Sony properly, or at least provide a proper way of people who are a bit late from getting such hidden items.

I imply because there is multiple PS Stores. Generally for each country, but they could also share some aspects (a UK voucher can sometimes works on PT accounts, for example).

Before I actually posted, I went to my PS3, checked it and the MP beta was still there in my Downloads list. I also deleted the beta from my PS3, went again on the Store and could still download the Champion' Blade and Armor. Of course, this was an EU account (Portugal), but I can see no reason why they would delete the MP beta from the Store since they never did it something similar (as far as I'm concerned). And even if they did, I think these kind of downloads works as an ID to check if you had downloaded X, instead of checking your download list (which would stay the same, regardless if something was deleted).

 

If you always have only one PSN ID and downloaded the beta from there, then I dont know. My first affirmation was based on the fact that I did not know if you did have more than one account (or used one just to download the beta).
