PS4 Library: Game's being removed?

15 posts in this topic

I have recently noticed this problem where some of the games you've downloaded for free from PS+ or even games you've bought during sales,etc ... aren't even displayed in your library. 

 

At this point I decided to go to the PlayStation Store and type in some of the games that weren't on my library list (which is literally every game except for the games I currently have on my XMB screen) 

 

Example: I type in 'Contrast' because I bought that game during a flash sale or some holiday sale for about $5-6. All it showed me was this whole PlayStation Now Membership requirement, which got me pissed because I paid my own money for that game and it's basically telling me to re-purchase it all over again. (There's no option where it just says 'Download') 

 

I type in some other games I remember being in my library and it shows that I've purchased, but to just download it. Which overall, is a good thing but annoying at the same time. The library was quick and simple. You find all the games you've purchased and with a simple click of a button, your game would already be downloading.. Now apparently I have to type in the game on Playstation Store and download it from there.

 

Is it just me with this PS4 Library Issue/Change? I remember the library shows all the games you bought even if you did not download the game to your system and whenever you wanted to delete a game, the game would still be in your library. (DISC or DIGITAL doesn't matter) 

 

Also another thing I wanted to add: I have PS+ but my PS+ icon doesn't show up. I checked my membership just in case and I still have 3 months left from my 12 month membership. I can still play multiplayer, download free games only for PS+ members, and even get the PS+ discounts.. I've ignored it not showing up but it still irritates me from time to time.. 

 

Anyone else having this issue or heard about this issue? I've tried to look for other forums from different websites, but none have the issue I have.  :(

 

PROBLEM FIXED THANKS TO DJPERKYUK & X9ZACHATTACK5X!

 

If any of you have problems with your Ps+ icon not appearing, several games being missed in your game library, themes begin completely removed when deleted... here's what you need to do:

 

  • Go to Settings
  • Click 'PlayStation Network/Account Management' 
  • Click 'Restore Licenses'
  • You're done!

That's certainly odd. Try searching through your purchase history via the Playstation app or the PSN website. Your items should still be there if you purchased them.

As far as I can recall, the library has never shown purchased games unless you downloaded them at least once.  It is unfortunate, especially with how bad the download list online is.

i don't think that's the case.

I have many PS+ games I have not downloaded on my library.

P.T. is also a good example. I did not download it and it still is in my library.

I've purchased some PS2 games like Bully and Manhunt, but they were in my library list even though I didn't download the game. The library has always been a storage for us. It keeps all the game titles we've bought (even if not downloaded) and once you're ready to play a new game, the system will automatically download the game for you after you've clicked on the title. 

 

I've also noticed with downloading themes has changed for me. Usually whenever you purchase or download those free themes, it'll automatically download but it doesn't do that anymore. You literally need to go to 'Theme' and download it from there. After you delete the theme, it's usually supposed to stay in your Theme list but it gets remove completely.. You can re-download it, but through the PlayStation Store this time.. If this is some kind of new change Sony has made, I do not like it at all.

 

Strange.. :/

Not true. I frequently purchase PS4 games and DLC from the store but do not download them until I'm ready to play, and they appear in the Library.

Try restoring licences. Somewhere in settings.

It might be a difference between Plus games and regular games also.  I "purchased" Tropico 5 through the web and it is not in my library on PS4.

 

If I go to the PS+ section on the console, it shows all of the games I acquired, but they aren't in my library if I haven't downloaded them.  I can download them from the PS+ section.

 

I don't think that is the question the OP had, just clarifying my comments.

Thank you & djperkyuk. It worked for me by only restoring the licenses instead of doing the whole deactivate and reactivate.  :)

 

By restoring my licenses, my ps+ logo is now showing, all my games, and themes are appearing!

I noticed demos ive tried are all gone. Everything else i bought or got for free is still there. Its super clean now. Yay.

One thing i noticed immediately at least for my account was i used to have 2 Resident Evil Rev 2 download games or slots. One was there was free stuffs or something for ep1 or something and i added to my library but later bought the game but it still categorize as 2 games in the library. But now its gone. I was erratically happy.

I would like to delete demo's and beta's though. I have a big group of them bloating my library. The only ones I have ever seen disappear off my library  were disc game installs that I delete.
