Can't find downloaded game...

12 replies 5849 views Edited Sep 16, 2013
Im still new to PS+ and I'm having an issue. I downloaded Star Wars Pinball 3 times and it will not appear on the XMB. I downloaded the "Demo" and "Unlock Key" and it is no where to be found on the XMB to install. This is the only game that is giving me an issue. Please help. It's driving me crazy!

Good question. LOL. Uhhh....I think I just let it download. If I did, where would I go to install?

you should see the title in a bubble in the games area of the XMB. by clicking that you install it. If you dont see it at all go to account management then transaction management then download list and redownload it again.

Did you shut down the PS3 as you were downloading? If so, did you select it to finish downloading before shutting down?

If so, the game should be installed and under the games.


If you can't find it, just re-download it

Yeah, check under the network to make sure it isn't still downloading somehow, if it isn't there and the the install bubble isn't under games I would see if you have Game Data for it under games on the xmb. If not, redownload.

I have it set to shut down after download and I have tried it 3 different times. It doesn't appear anywhere on the XMB. I'm so lost...

Try turning off the shutdown after download option so the PS3 stays on and re-download it. It should be there. Under games section either in a bubble meaning has to be installed or an icon for the game itself meaning it was installed. Don't let the PS3 shut down till you know the download is complete and you got it.

Hm. That's a tough one. I, too, generally use the auto shut off and haven't had any issues.

If Star Wars Pinball is the issue, though I haven't downloaded it myself to be sure, says that it is only a level, not a game under the descriptor. May need to confirm through someone else but I was under the impression that that was dlc.

He says he's downloading and its just not showing up. Ive never heard of this myself. I've had a b ad download before and it said was corrupt but I had an corrupt icon instead of game showing it did at least download something.
