got this error today as well and verified every last detail with a live sony technician and the only solution she could come up with was to purchase a 20 dollar(or more) PSN card for the code. The trouble with this is some of my games have like 80+ dlcs and i have no clue about the total tally i would need to add to get it there. Obviously since this thread is MONTHS old they have had time to address this issue and have not. I started a completely different thread to help resolve issues directly to credit cards but it seemingly got buried under the pile of angry FPS'ers being cranky about the cheaters(no big surprise but alas people are going to cheat no matter what). If this problem doesn't get resolved its not just Sony thats losing money its the companies who release paid for dlc that are losing out. So i may have to post on some of their sites to get action.
they gotta be bunch of **bleep**holes over there.... how long has it been??? Black ops 2 dlc is finally about to come out on the ps3 and I still cant get my freakin season pass... bring back the old store till you can fix the issue already... do something... im about to go trade my ps3 in and get my xbox360 back cuz this is some BS
