432 Question for Liz.

Are you saiding we have to DL the demo to get the code?
I had DL the demo before. Then deleted a week ago.

Then this week we get a Sam & Max for free. So do I need to redownload the demo to get the code?

Never bought E1, so I cant dl E1.

    December 16th, 2:00 pm

    You should get the code by midnight PST tonight if you had ever downloaded the demo or ep 1 and are a PS+ member.

RiSYN69 said:

December 16th, 1:14 pm

Hopefully I get mine tonight, only been waiting 36+ hours. I realize they’ve got a lot of codes, but they went the longest time without letting anyone on here know what’s going on. I’d be more understanding and patient had they acknowledged our “cries” lol

greddygoon659 said:

December 16th, 1:30 pm

will the backround in the ps store be available for download?

xXPiahXx said:

December 16th, 1:30 pm

Just need to wait for the solution of Sam & Max?

carlosm71 said:

December 16th, 1:32 pm

Just wanted to add my name to the list affected by the Sam & Max Problem, I’ll be waiting for the code tonight. I had a feeling it was because I had downloaded the demo when it came out months ago, glad to see you were able to find the cause of the problem and offer a solution.

rsl27 said:

December 16th, 1:35 pm

I cannot download Sam & Max either, nor received a code. Are any of those coming yet?

    Grace Chen's Avatar

    Liz Walsh said:

    December 16th, 2:01 pm

    Tonight, by midnight PST the second round of codes will be distributed.

xXPiahXx said:

December 16th, 2:22 pm

i downloaded the demo now! i will get the code in midnight pst?

crim001 said:

December 16th, 3:59 pm

I hope to get a code soon too, please! This looks killer, and I know you guys won’t disappoint. Keep up the good work, guys. Thanks!

knowyourroll323 said:

December 16th, 4:52 pm

i hope there is update to fix that error thing for past day and half, im not even pluse memeber im just wanted to down load games i want to buy, but it wont let me, i hope this will clear up that problem u guys having ……

PolloRojo said:

December 16th, 4:58 pm

Still no code for me yet…

NotoriousGamer said:

December 16th, 5:01 pm

where is my code? Its error all the way. Sony stop being like a small time company and having silly issues all the damn time. get ur act together.

fix it on the psn store itself.

Tom_B said:

December 16th, 6:08 pm

Will those of us who literally just signed up for Playstation Plus a few hours ago be on the list for this second wave of codes?

Sam & Max was the game that pushed me over the edge into subscribing, so this is all rather disappointing. :(

Xalace said:

December 16th, 7:05 pm

i need a sam and max code. i have gotten the error as well. i called corp and said to wait for solution here. would b great for you to send me the code to fix the problem. thx.

Cid_1314 said:

December 16th, 7:10 pm

So if for some reason some of us still don’t get a code tonight is there something we can do to make sure we get it in the next batch??
Or are we supposed to just sit back and hope we’re in batch #3 or four or even later??

JUGGALO414 said:

December 16th, 8:15 pm

so it’s 10:13 pm on thursday and still no sam & max code. I’m trying to be patient but this is getting really annoying. Will there be a batch 3 & 4 & so on if we don’t get one tonight? please respond because i’m tired of asking questions and getting no answers. by the way 12 pst is 2 in the morning for me. you expect me to sit here at 2 am and wait for a damn code? why couldn’t you do this during the day when people aren’t too tired to play IF they even get the damn code?!?

JUGGALO414 said:

December 16th, 8:17 pm

maybe i should just switch to stupid xbox.

JUGGALO414 said:

December 16th, 8:17 pm

so it’s 10:18 pm on thursday and still no sam & max code. I’m trying to be patient but this is getting really annoying. Will there be a batch 3 & 4 & so on if we don’t get one tonight? please respond because i’m tired of asking questions and getting no answers.

cnarob said:

December 16th, 8:40 pm

Cid_1314 said:

December 16th, 8:50 pm

@cnarob and JUGGALO414
When they said after 10pm they meant pacific time, you got at least another hour or more to wait yo

EcksMane said:

December 16th, 9:18 pm

HeLLeVeN11 said:

December 16th, 10:03 pm

Just received the message, finally downloading now. Thanks SONY.

Budapesti said:

December 16th, 10:09 pm

It just occurred to me that the wording of ‘batch #2’ does not rule out the possibility of there being a ‘batch #3’ at some point in the near, or distant, future.
10:09 here on the East Coast. Hoping I get an email in the next hour or so.

JUGGALO414 said:

December 16th, 10:10 pm

thank you sony i finally got it. coulda been sooner but as long as i finally got it i cant complain. my faith has been restored!

Budapesti said:

December 16th, 10:15 pm

And when I say ‘East Coast’, I mean ‘West Coast’ obviously.

Jisatsu_Kiddo said:

December 16th, 10:23 pm

people need to calm down the “stupid box” woulda said tough crap deal with it. at least sony has and is fixing it. i got my pm to my box about 10 min ago and clicked there attachment.

dayday72 said:

December 16th, 10:37 pm

I got my code, thanks for the fix. Seems weird how they solved it, but also weird how it was a problem.

Xalace said:

December 16th, 10:54 pm

i got my code. thx ps3 staff.

Budapesti said:

December 16th, 11:03 pm

11.01…nothing yet. I guess I’m going to be in batch #3??? I think I’m going to be playing Duke Nukem Forever before I get my hands on Sam & Max.

Redikol said:

December 16th, 11:22 pm

Got my message in my PS3 inbox, Downloading Sam & Max now, Thanks Sony!

WhiteNo1se said:

December 16th, 11:36 pm

Just woke up from falling asleep on the couch, was about to head up to bed, but checked my PS3 first… got my code message.. thx sony

RiSYN69 said:

December 16th, 11:48 pm

Received mine exactly @ 12AM PST. Thanks Sony. For those who didn’t get yours yet, I hope that you do. If I not I urge you to continue contacting Sony as all PS+ should be entitled to the game.

DeRR1ck19 said:

December 17th, 12:16 am

Hmm I got the message indicator at the top right of my screen saying I got the message- message saying “Sam and Max 1-5”- but it’s not showing up in my inbox. Should I be concerned?

RiSYN69 said:

December 17th, 12:18 am

Yes, I’d say this calls for concern lol. Or just check again later idk.

Budapesti said:

December 17th, 12:26 am

Is there anyone out there who still hasn’t received the email, besides me?
Just want a show of solidarity before I convince myself that it’s a personal vendetta by Sony, directed at me, for buying a rival 3D television set-up.

Cellpholist said:

December 17th, 1:09 am

ok, so there are several of us whom have not received the code, let’s hope this is rectified soon, for sadly time is running out with each passing day. :( there may be some people reading these posts but for some reason are unable to put they’re thoughts on this down.

Caudill said:

December 17th, 1:13 am

I received my code, looking forward to finally playing the game later today!

zachattacksox said:

December 17th, 3:27 am

What the heck! STILL no code! Look at the reply on comment 451. Liz said that we should have received a code if we had ever downloaded the demo and are a PS+ member. Well, I and almost everyone with this issue has downloaded the demo and are a PS+ member and still hasn’t received a code. So if we all were supposed to receive a code last night, what happened? Stop being so vague Sony and fix this. I did not sign up for PS+ for a lottery on the first real good deal on PS+


December 17th, 3:31 am

Thank you Liz & Co. I received my message with a voucher and am currently downloading Sam & Max episode 1-6.

Voodoo_Lou said:

December 17th, 4:09 am

So are we going to be told to wait for Round 3 now? Still no code here. PSN+ member, downloaded the Sam and Max Demo previously, still getting the error code and still have not received a message 4 hours after they were sent. I really don’t want to jump on the complain train…


December 17th, 4:39 am

xandn said:

December 17th, 5:08 am

I’ve been following this, hoping for a fix. Still haven’t received a code and still get the download error – I don’t want to complain, but I don’t want to be overlooked either…
