I fear the worst…

…little Kratos avatar has gone bat$#!+ crazy, torn asunder the PSN Update gods, and is roaming around killing tiny little avatar-sized mythical beasts.

Run for the hills, little pixies!!!

    Only the Legionnaire Skin and PSP Theme can be downloaded and used on the PSP. The rest of the items are PS3 specific

Thank you Ken, I’ll hold off on redeeming for now but really wanted to see that dynamic theme asap.

Ken,

Same issue many others have mentioned — No avatar listed when I redeemed my code. This was with a PS3.

FreshRevenge said:

November 2nd, 10:04 pm

I don’t see my Avatar? what is going on?

marbury187 said:

November 2nd, 10:05 pm

@1575: The dynamic theme really isn’t that great. Pretty much what you’d expect for a free download though.

Very nice comment there…..
Telling us PSP users only after we buy the game…
I’m a PSP GO users without any PS3, and to tell you the truth,
at first I was happy to see that GO user aren’t left behind this time, still getting the same bonus with the UMD’s…
But now… I don’t know waht to say… I don’t know if Im dissapointed in buying the PSP GO… or dissapointed in myself to be so stupid and fell for the bonus trick…

SpyDudeFX said:

November 2nd, 10:40 pm

FreshRevenge said:

November 2nd, 10:42 pm

chokokiller said:

November 2nd, 10:43 pm

marbury187 said:

Ken, but what if we call tomorrow and they don’t know what we’re talking about. Sorry I’m just really paranoid like that. Really wanted that avatar.

    They’ll take care of you. I’m informing them of the issue now :)

T3mpr1x said:

November 2nd, 11:51 pm

GAH I really hope this gets answered…Best Buy e-mailed me today letting me know that my PRE-ORDER has been backordered. I thought part of the reason for pre-ordering was to reserve the game to prevent this from happening.

Anyway, my question is, will that order still contain the pre-order goodies??? It better…

    Ken Chan said:

    You’ll be fine. Just make sure Best Buy will provide you with the voucher code

Is it me, or is the “God of War – Game Directors Live” broken into two parts and listed as a game, or did I miss the video files somehow?

    Ken Chan's Avatar

    Ken Chan said:

    November 3rd, 5:39 am

    You got the files directly. The videos were built within a video application for the PS3, with it’s own menu and chapter system

u2vini said:

November 3rd, 6:46 am

Ken, big disappointed when i bought the game today and saw that the
Soundtrack and Game directors part 1&2 are only PS3!

you should advice people before…!

i own both so no biggie, but would be nice to have those on PSP, after all, when you buy the PSP game, goodies should be for PSP or advice they will be only for PS3 owners!

downloaded last night and had no issues with any DLC. Received everything. This game is awesome.

MASTRER_666 said:

November 3rd, 7:51 am

is there a actual voucher for the dlc because amazon only email it? any body here have a actual voucher?

MASTRER_666 said:

November 3rd, 8:04 am

Im willing to buy your voucher i prefer for used one because Im only adding it to my collection.

pauley79 said:

November 3rd, 8:18 am

@1605 – KEN,

So that is how it is suppose to be. Thats cool, I only ask, because the God of War III pre-order movie was a real video file, and came with a PSP version. So I wanted to know if I was missing this with this new video. But I guess not.

jh6269 said:

KEN

Just want to thank you for releasing the PSP3000 God of War: Ghost of Sparta bundle. It’s my first PSP and I started playing God of War: Chains of Olympus last night, and it’s great! Also, my DLC from GameStop all worked finally around 12AM to 12:30 AM central.

Thanks for sticking with us through the issues with the PSN Store!

pauley79 said:

November 3rd, 8:31 am

BTW, everything looks great, I am happy with the DLC. Just not happy with the wait, but it was well worth it in my book.

DarthBane24 said:

November 3rd, 8:44 am

KEN

I seen at around 7:15 you said give Customer Service about an hour to get everything in order. Well I called at 8:30…the guy was very nice on the phone. I informed him that I had not received the avatar in the Ghost of Sparta DLC bundle and I’m not really sure he knew what was going on, but he looked into the situation and came back to me with basically “Try the code again at a later time, more likely tomorrow.” Is that the answer everyone is getting?

somethingw1cked said:

November 3rd, 8:56 am

I waited until today and called. The lady was nice but told me I would have to call back in 30 minutes, for some department to open up. So I call back and the gentlemen just tells me “they are aware of the issue.” How is this going to be resolved exactly? Am I going to have to keep calling back?

PSN Cards purchased from retailers only work
on the PSN that represents said region. To use PSN Card
on US PSN Store said card must be
purchased from North American retailer.
Then shipped to your address.
Perhaps try Amazon.com. I live in US, and
thats what I had to do to shop on EU PSN Store. ^_^
