Problem with Welcome Back free games

59 replies 449 views Edited Jun 3, 2011

I saw that the welcome back offer is now on the PS store, I followed the instructions for getting the free games for the PS3, but not once was I given a choice to select a game, now the 2 icons that were available for getting the free games are gone, I have no download options and pretty much not sure where to go from here.  Anyone else having this issue?

Edit- Ok so it seems that I was a victim of lag so to speak, I clicked the Free PS3 game 1 then it hung, then I hit O after a few seconds and didnt realize that a list poped out for games to download, is there any way I can redeem these games cause?

I believe I had that exact same problem,  you downloaded "Welcome Back: Free PS3 Game1" & 2  instead of downloading the games themselves hm?

That thing happened to me and now I cannot have my games.

I have a similar problem. So now I'm SOL out of getting any games at all due to it lagging and giving me connection error. Brilliant.

I got to the point where I could choose the game, selected it, got an error which prevented me from downloading the game. And just like you now the Free Game icons are gone, leaving me with no way to download the games.. Really, if I get screwed over on this any faith I still had in Sony is gone.

Error code preventing me from actually choosing a 1st free PS3 game and now I have no way of ever selecting the game. The 2nd free PS3 game and both free PSP selections worked however.

Considering how long this whole fiasco has taken I am not particularily happy right now.

That works, I just tried it.  a bit slow on downloading though but that's to be expected with everyone downloading at the same time, It's the equivalent of a DDoS but without DDoSing  lol
