Mega Man Maverick Hunter X not on PS3 as listed?

5 replies 1708 views Edited Apr 1, 2013

So I just downloaded my copy of Mega Man X as I'm a PSN+ user, and it said it is for PS3, PSP and PS Vita.  However I cannot get the game to install for the PS3 it just keeps asking me if I want to copy it to my PSP.  Any idea why?

Mega Man Maverick Hunter X is actually a PSP game, which naturally are not playable on the PlayStation 3 platform. You'll need to either transfer the game from your PlayStation 3 to your handheld device or download it from the portable platform. Do you own either a PlayStation Portable or a PlayStation Vita? For you'll need one, as that's the only way you'll be able to play the game.

I just looked at the game via the online store and it does say playable on PS3, PSP, PSV, so I can see why he's confused. You are right though Gray that it is a PSP game. I'll have to let someone know about the error.

I just download megamen and it says I can play it on my ps3 but the only option it gives is to tranfer it over to a vita which I don't have.

Can I play on ps3? How?

It's a PSP game. As has been mentioned many times before (in threads similar to this one), it has been mislabeled.

Yeah, Naturally.  However, what's not "natural" is for PSN to list it as a PS3 game, which they do, and which you did not mention.

 

The weird thing is that I'm pretty sure that a week or two ago the PSN store correctly listed the game as only a PSP/Vita game.  I know, because I mistakenly hoped that it may be playable on the PS3, so I checked, and it correctly did not list it as a PS3 game.  However, sometime in the last week or so PSN added "PS3" next to the game on the store.  Naturally, people are confused.

 

Nice work Sony!
