Expired and No Longer Available

31 posts in this topic

Okay this is weird ...

first. I have just cause 2 downloaded from psn store for free (ps plus) on my ps3

And the problem is that, when I played earlier today and was trying to finish the last 2 trophies i have left for plat, the game suddenly froze and I was returned to PS menu...

Now when i try to play the game I get the message "The content has exired and is no longer avaible" ?! dafuq is this !!

Can you only play it for free in a certain period ?!!!

2 trophies left for plat :(

Well I know if you are not signed into the playstation network, after a certain time period your games wont be playable. check the date your ps+ expires, it may just not have updated itself?

^^^ To add to Casa, just press triangle on the game you're trying to play and look at the information. It will tell you the date right there.

Im still a little confused... so did your subscription run out for PS+?

pretty sure they put date first according to his? but mine makes no sense its either 5 or 6 months, I usually do 3 months at a time, so I am lost

Europeans (I guess the rest of the world) write their date different Piggy.....June 6th to Sep 5th- 3 month PS+ subscription I'm guessing

LOL... whoops! I didn't think of that...

I pay for a year at a time because i feel like i get more bang for my buck... mine should expire in the next few months i think...

anyway, back on topic... so free games only last as long as the Plus membership right? so according to his last post his membership was up as of today and thus couldn't play the game anymore... am i hearing that right?

yes, when your sub runs out no more playing. however, if you get a game it still has an expiry for when your offline, so even if your a ps+ member, you cant always play offline.

Yeah, the proper way to display the date! :P

I prefer the US Navy's date format: dd MMM yyyy (e.g. today would be 05 SEP 2012) :P

On topic: I believe only games that were free for PS+ expire correct? If you purchased a game with a PS+ discount you get to play it forever, right?

If it expires and you renew do you get your freebies back? Or once it expires it is done?

as soon as you renew, you get access to all the freebies again.

i don't like the whole play online thing... its kinda dumb... what if i don't feel like playing online? To be honest sometimes i play offline just so i won't be bothered by messages (i will never ignore a message out of respect unless im AFK)... Sometimes i wish you can be online without being seen... maybe there should be a switch to ninja mode so you can still be surfing the PSN store but not be shown online or something...

its a little controlling having to be online to play a game but then again it is a FREE game after all... <_<
