Same issue here. Game download doesn't show up and when I try to download it in the store, it crashes.
I have purchased and downloaded over 300 things from the Store in the past and never once had any difficulty like I am having trying to get this one game....
I see Sony does the same thing as Blizzard. Instead of unlocking the download per time zone they wait till it's 12:01 PST and force every single user to try and get the game at the same time. It's just dumb, lesson learned for now on. I'll just have to pre-order at gamestop and get the disc so i know i can install the game. This is really really disappointing.....
OK guys, it seems that mine is downloading. I know this is going to be a bit rough. However I went back to the PSN on my PC and it allowed me to re-add Dark Souls 2 to my cart as a free purchase. I then qued it up for download and it is currently downloading. So i recommend to you all that you use the PC until they update the PSN on Console
THis sucks.... can't call support cause they are not open.... can't live chat cause they are not open.... I love how they make you wait for a time to get the download only to make it impossible to get a hold of anyone.
I have attempted both your suggestions with no luck.
Game already purchased, but lacks a download button on the game page and is obviously not listed in my downloads section, attempted from pc, tried adding another product to cart and removing etc.. No matter what there is no download or anything button on the Dark Souls 2 Display page
So on my pc i logged into the psn and added DS2 to my cart and pushed it to download on the PS3. I turned off the Ps3 and turned it back on and upon logging in it installed the DS2 theme pack again. I logged into the PS Store and chose DS2 again, and this time it is installing the game. THanks for the heads up RuggerX
