PS vita downloaded game not installing

4 replies 1099 views Edited Aug 3, 2012

Morning All,

 

Newbie so go easy :-)

 

I've just got a PS vita and have downloaded Chess from the PS Store.  The game downloads ok but does not seem to install.  Its not on the home screen or anywhere that seems obvious.  I deleted the download and tried downloding again but I get the same result.

 

Has anyone run into this issue?

 

Cheers

The home screen has multiple pages.  Are you sure that you scrolled all the way down? Games downloaded to a Vita install automatically.  There should have been an error message if something went wrong.

Cheers for the reply.

 

I've checked all pages and nothing has intsalled.

 

I've downloaded 3 games, 2 purchased and 1 demo.  The demo downloads and installs but the purchased games only download and stay in notifications without installing.  Driving me crazy :-)

That's an easier mistake to make in the Vita Playstation Store than it is in the other ones.  The Vita places the game and the DLC together in one screen, where the PS3 and PSP Playstation Stores put DLC in a different category from games.
