Re: RE5 Not Showing Up Free in Plus (PS Store Hiccup)

[ Edited ]
Nov 7, 2012

I expected problems with the new store, but it's disappointing nonetheless.  I can't download this for free and I also can't figure out how to remove it from my cart, from when I tried to download it.  If anyone knows how to remove it, and how to "fix" the other issues I'll mention, please let me know!  It seems to remember your cart now also, even if you quit and start over, which would be useful if I actually wanted it...I guess I can't buy the Portal 2 DLC until it's fixed/figured out.

 

I'm really not impressed with the new store so far.  I usually just browsed the new section and it was quick to check all types of games/|DLC, but now it loads slower and I apparently have to browse everything new by category (ps3 games - new, demos - new, etc...), which takes longer.  For example, I wanted to see what was new in Rock Band, but when I go to games/ps3 add-ons/new it shows all games, not sorted by game.  Before you could just choose the add-ons folder and the game you wanted; it was much simpler.

Make your way to your cart and the nice "X" on the top left hand corner of the item in your cart will do the trick.

 

As for searching for content for Rockband, all you need to do is use the new search feature. That's the feature the new store revolves around. You don't even have to type the entire search, 3 letters should suffice. If the content you're searching doesn't show up in the " Top Results" list just scroll through the aphabetized list of content underneath that until you get to the letter your game starts with, find it and open it. From there you'll have all content for that game available to you through quick buttons on the lower left hand side of the screen. The content is grouped by Overview, Add-ons, Videos, etc.

Thanks, I didn't realize I could select that.  I guess that's the problem with having "X" as a button on the controller and with a separate meaning as well.  I know how to find RB stuff, but it's still not as convenient as it was, which is disappointing and feels like a step backwards.  I think the new store may be good for people who don't use it as often as I do, but I just want to check it once a week, quickly see what's new (and relevant), and get out.

 

Edit: I cancelled it and then realized that RE5 now works as it should (free) anyway :smileytongue:

I believe if you let the trial fully run its course, and it quits after an hour, it should revert to the PS+ version and you should have full access to the game...
