The ‘Buy’ option is gone

12 posts in this topic

I wanted to check how much a game is on the psn store on my ps3 yesterday and I noticed that I can’t buy anything from the store, when I enter a game’s page, all infos are there except for the price and the buy button. it’s just blank 

 

I made sure the system is updated, deleted the store and reinstalled, but still it didn’t get fixed

Second hand information since my PS3 still shows Buy buttons but apparently if you continue to press 'X' (or 'O' if you have an Asian PS3) on the item you want to purchase's page then you will get to the purchase screen. It seems the Buy button is there but invisible. Some say you may have to press 'X' multiple times.

Buy buttons are gone for me as well. I did get a message that the service was undergoing maintenance so it might be related. In the mean time you can access the old webstore here: https://store.playstation.com/?smcid=psapp

 

thanks for the link, that's awesome

Eventually I feel the PS3 store is going to be a broken mess. Especially since the move to remove PS3 completely from web store, it seems SONY doesn't even want to have to deal with PS3 anymore.

So an update, seems like the buy button is just invisible but actually still there. If you highlight the overview button and press up once you will be on buy. Then press x to add to cart.

This is probably just a bug or related to maintenance like the guy said above. But I cannot lie, stuff like this makes me feel like the PS3 era is on it’s last legs. 😕 For this reason I am dedicating a big portion of the next year into clearing my PS3 backlog, especially games with online.
