PSN free 2 game downloading issue and solution


This could be quite helpful, if you have issues with downloading the free 2 game from the welcome package, try this:

1. On your PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable navigate to the PlayStation Network icon on the XMB
2. Log into your PlayStation Network account and choose Account Management > Transaction Management > Services List
3. Choose “PlayStation Network Promotions” from the list of services displayed
4. Select either “PS3 Free Games” or “PSP Free Games” and then choose “Select Content”

My issue was I only downloaded my first free game, then when I log back to my PSN the next day, I can access the free game selection section, but I can’t see anything listed there. Very weird. But the service list trick solves my problem!

Also remember to get the free 2 PSP game even if you don’t have a PSP. Who knows if you might have a PSP or Vita someday in the future, they are free, all you need to do is just keep them in the downloading list. I think you can download the same file upto 6 times?

BTW I got dead nation and Super Stardust HD. I’ve already finished dead nation with the Braindead level (easiest). The game is pretty short, but quite fun. It could go pretty insane at times with so many zombies! But the optimization must be quite decent, since the loading is quite fast (talking to you, might&magic…) and the frames rarely drop due to intense graphics which I was quite amazed. Super Stardust HD, I’ve always wanted this game, but it’s a tough game…
