PSN DLC Purchase. Ballad For Gay Tony

3 replies 163 views Edited Jul 13, 2013

Hi, i just bought the dlc Ballad for Gay Tony for GTA 4 and it won't let me play it. I've restarted it and tried different profiles, but no result. I think it may be a region related problem. My ps3 is from belgium and so is the game, but the psn network id is from Brasil, i really don't know what's going on. Will this happen to all future downloads? Thank you in advance

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

This is exactly the reason your DLC isn't working, DLC is region-locked & any DLC must be purchased from the same region as the original game.

The easiest way to answer this is just to say that the GAME & the DLC MUST be from the same region, that's all.
