PS Plus not updating in Vita

9 replies 253 views Edited Jan 2, 2013

My PS Store is failing to update the games and discounts, for example not showing chronovolts, though if I manually search for it I can download it for free, and it's not showing the holiday essentials sale (It shows Rayman, Escape Planet and LBP, though they are not on sale anymore)

Can anyone help me? I updated the firmware, signed out and back in, restarted it, but to no avail.

 

PS Can anyone tell me what I SHOULD be seeing? To make sure I don't miss out on anything? Thanks!

You should see an icon for the Instant Game Collection that should show you all the games you can download for free as well as the discounted items. The PS Store is presented differently on the Vita, so it can a little disorienting using both systems to navigate the store...

Yup, I can go into the IGC, but it's not correct, Chronovolts is missing, and the essentials haven't  updated, so I waas wondering what am I missing.

I have the same problem. I go to the holiday games sale and it still shows LBP, Rayman, and Escape Plan (all at original price, of course).

I'm seeing it on my end too. Apologies for that confusion there; not the ideal scenario. Looks like that Holiday Essentials banner is not housing the current sales. So the best bet is to check out the PS Blog Store Update to find out what is currently on sale as this promotion's content changes weekly (this week is the last week of course) 

 

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/12/31/playstation-store-update-272/

 

From there, just search for the game you'd like to purchase on sale, and it will show up with the discount (Sound Shapes or Touch My Katamari, for example) 

 

Also seeing that Chronovolt is not correctly housed under the banners for Plus. Same solution as the above; do a search for it, and it will come up free. Or click the banner to find it. 

 

Thanks, I've passed this along to the Store team as well.

I'm glad it's not on my end, then Smiley Happy

are only those 2 on sale for vita? That has been my main concern, so as to not lose the opportunity

I can see the discounts, they are $7.34 and $12.24 respectively

 

Thanks!

mochuuu - Fair play.  I complain about mods not positing enough, so thanks for jumping in on this thread.  I had the same issue, but knew enough about the store to search for anything I wanted (sales or games) to get anything that was free or something that was discounted.

 

Obviously not everyone does ... I wonder how many PS+ Vita owners Sony failed to reach because of this issue?  Honestly, it is not the first time that PS+ Vita content hasn't shown up correctly ....
