I'm sorry to inform you that RE5 Gold was just replaced by Bioshock 2, because the store updates on Tuesday afternoon/evening. You would have had to download RE5 Gold anytime before that to be able to get it. It was available to download for about a month...

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

Yea Logical is correct, you were too late, it was just (today actually) replaced by Bioshock 2, the game as Logical also said was available for some time, if you only recently realized the game was there then it may be worth your while in the future keeoing ene eye on these Forums, Sony's Facebook page or Twitter, the PS Blog is also a great way to stay informed of up-coming releases.

Always check, in the PSN store, in the PSN+ section, which "free" games are going to expire soon. If your game is in the "Expiring Soon" section in the PSN+ section of the PSN store, that's when you should panic and download it right away. I'm so glad I checked and downloaded Resident Evil 5. I've played the online where the people helped me go through the chapters. Thanks people!

I subscribed PSN+ service around 1500 yesterday afternoon:smileysad: I saw RE5 was still available for free but when I checkout, the system told me I need to pay for it sadly. Even Bioshock 2 is aslo a good game, but I still want RE5 back. I have done RE5 on PC, so this is a good chance to get a easy platinum trophy for me. I had PSN+ service for one year and three months when it just came out, but it was too suck and waste my money on it. When did PSN+ become an awesome plan that have 18 free games?!

I checked "Expiring Soon", RE5 was not there. I was a PSN+ member, So I know how to track. I checked RE5 is not in Expiring Soon section and RE5 was still on the PSN+ banner page.

Yeah, the store doesn't refresh til after all of the content is edited. So you can at times access content before the store refresh by simply searching for it ahead of time, or have your situation. Next time make sure you get to what you need before Tuesday even comes around.

It sounds like you joined PS+ right around the time it was updating or about to update, had you joined on Monday you would have been fine.

 

PS+ updated the plan for 12 free PS3 games in June, and added 6 Vita games in November...

If you are talking about the banner page on PlayStation.com, that always updates days after a change happens in the PSN store, so it isn't a good indicator. 

 

For future reference the Store always updates on Tuesdays. If you want to guarantee that you get a certain title, you need to download it before the following Tuesday...
