Store error - Infamous install file thinks it's for PSP / Vita instead of PS3.

[ Edited ]

I recently got a new PS3 and am trying to install all of my content onto it.  I have an issue with Infamous.  The game's page on the new store says that Infamous is unavailable to purchase or to download.  When I click for details, it says it's unavailable becasue I already own Infamous.  If I download the game via my download list, my PS3 thinks the install file is for a PSP or Vita, not a PS3, so it refuses to install it.  Any suggestions?

Hi,  I'm having the same problem. Sorry, no suggestions but I wanted to add another voice to this problem.  It took me all night and most of this morning to download this, I was keen to start it again after my previous PS3 Yold last month! 

 

Obviously this was one of the free games Sony gave back to the PSN users during the down times, so I technically own it but need to download it again.

 

If anybody knows a way that we can download it correctly for PS3, not PSP/Vita that would really help?

 

Thanks

I too am having this issue. I purchased a new PS3 because my old one gave out and I didn't have a backup. So I'm downloading all the items I used to have and the same issue appears for me. The install file has two things wrong with it. One, it says its a trial (indicated by the yellow tag on the icon) and two, even though it says its a PS3 file, it still tries to install as a PSP. I have not tried doing so because I don't want it to screw up my PSP, but nonetheless, I'd like to see this issue resolved.

 

*edit* i wonder if the inability to download it directly from the store (as opposed to "view downloads') is related to the fact that i had tried out the trial version before getting it from sony as a gift

I think I was having this problem too

 

First I tried to download Infamous from the XMB -> Account Management -> Download List

but it would keep giving an error when trying to download

 

so I opened the new store and it would download.. but then the icon showed it as a trial..

Then canceled that download and went back to the XMB download list and it no longer gives an error and I think it's downloading the right one this time

I haven't re-downloaded the file since last week, since I figured until someone changes something on the store side there would be no reason to try again.  I can confirm that the only way I can get to Infamous to download is still via my download list, as the store page for the game says it's not available for purchase and when I click "tell me more" it says I already own it.

I just found out that I have the same problem with Super Stardust HD.  Super Stardust HD I was able to download off of the store, but the install file looks like it's a trial (yellow bar on the side) and my PS3 thinks it's for a PSP system.  I got those two games as part of the Welcome Back program.  Others with the Infamous issue mentioned that they also got the game through the Welcome Back program, so maybe that can help with the troubleshooting.
