Ok, sony customer service is telling me that everything is kosher on their end with lords of shadow. And that I should contact konami's customer support because sony doesn't control access to game updates.

It seems to me it's a NA problem only even the collection because its in code form which will always be a bloody joke.

Well they just lied to you, because updates are on their servers

50/50

They don't have control over updates, they just publish them.

But being unable to answer questions why console doesn't check updates is just stupid.

This might be nothing, but the Lords of Shadow 1 DLC on the US PSN is listed under Castlevania Lament of Innocence (PS2 Classic)... could they have the files mislabeled in the backend?

Nah, the same thing has occurred in the EU store and on other searches that's just the PS3 store being janky.

I was annoyed about thinking the fact the dlcs were removed and was this close to go into the game sharing route. thankfully its there still for now. I'm just waiting to get my copy of the game off ebay.

Oh goddamit I JUST bought the original disc for that game recently!

Good luck with that, I've posted 3 times with no response. I made up a post about PS5 and got an instant response. 

What About The Older CODS And Battlefield?

Ok, so I've now talked with both Sony and Konami customer service. Both tried the typical IT support stuff (is it plugged in? do you have internet? can you tell us the update version? press triangle and check this thing, etc). Ultimately, Sony tried telling me that I was using the wrong gamer disc version (because I have the collection and the BLUS is different from the vanilla game). After that got explained they tried telling me that game updates are a game publisher thing and to contact them (and even provided a direct link to Konami's chat support). Konami was very much less effusive with cheeriness and fake happiness and basically said (after the IT support stuff) that it's impossible for them to force an update onto my console and that while they provide the game updates (in this case 1.03), Sony is the one that controls access to it for consoles. And that I should contact Sony customer support (which, funny enough, I was still chatting with). Konami did say they would escalate my complaint, but that I would not receive an update. So who knows if anything will actually come from that. Returing to Sony, I told them what Konami said, reiterating that the game update—according to Konami, 1.03—should be available but that it's Sony's ballgame to make it available to consumers' consoles. Sony replied that everything is fine and they can't say whether or not the specifics of a game's updates are available or not. In other words, yes: I've reached the right people in sony customer support to ask about this problem. Also, there is no problem! Also, try asking Konami! Also, have you tried restoring your system to factory settings and re-downloading everything?

Also, directly telling them "It appears there is an issue with your servers not making certain update files available" resulted in a response that boiled down to "sir, don't tell us how to do our job: our servers are up and everything is working properly."

For some reason this popped into my head when reading about your conversation with Sony.

Ok thanks.

 

Is there a way to know when a game is 1.00 means it s ok (never had a patch) or means it needed a patch and the patch is not avaible ? I would like to test with all my ps3 games tomorrow (I am French)

If this is an early sign that online integration will be completely removed on these older systems then I will be done with Sony. 
 

I have a small backlog of PS3 and Vita titles. Whether this is an issue due to people panic buying or connectivity being wonky, I don’t know.

I have the Castlevania LoS Collection, what do I need to check?

Check your game data and see if you're above version 1.00. Alternatively, play past the tutorial (use an alt account if you need to) and check your world map to see if it has 14 dots (dlc) versus 12 dots (dlc not recognized). 

 

Some points of reference

I'm sure this has already been brought up, but I wonder how this will effect games that include major version patches in DLC.

No Sony would never blame the game developer i do really find it hard that you tell these lies 🙃 That conversation is more or less a scripted basic reply i sometimes question if these people we are are talking with are not straight up BOTS.Copy and paste material is all they are and at this point i fear all online will be gone by the end of the year on PS3/Vita
