KillaBee2k5 said:

December 17th, 6:38 am

As of 8 am this morning, I still hadn’t received a download code out here in Canada. Hope to get it soon as I really can’t wait to play and got my subscription to Playstation + in large parts because of this promotion…

TheZed88 said:

December 17th, 6:44 am

US Resident.
PS+ Member.
Had downloaded Sam & Max demo.
Getting error.

And still no code. I love my PS+ membership and am usually not a complainer, but at this point I’m ready to wright “Sam & Max” off as a lost cause.

jtneuge said:

December 17th, 7:19 am

Still haven’t gotten a code this morning. Is there going to be another set of codes coming out today? I understand it must be a pain to send all these codes out, but I was really looking forward to playing this game.

normalguy417 said:

December 17th, 7:53 am

Still no code :(

EcksMane said:

December 17th, 8:02 am

ive received my code. thanks for staying on top of things.

jwspiker said:

December 17th, 8:04 am

no code for me either, though i haven’t check my PSN messages on the ps3(why can’t i check those on my computer?) For those who’ve received codes, did you get them via email or psn message?

BinaryJay said:

December 17th, 8:05 am

Received the code early in the morning. All is well now. Thank you for finally taking care of the problem.

aaront1983 said:

December 17th, 8:10 am

Still no code. Round 3? Yes?

Havok645 said:

December 17th, 8:12 am

I still haven’t gotten my code yet. I wonder if there will be another batch coming out tonight?

knowyourroll323 said:

December 17th, 8:13 am

im still getin the error, are they goin to fix it, im not ps+ member, i cant buy any of games from playstation store,
i only could down load demos , are u guys goin fix damn thing, its been like this since 11 pm tuesday night

Voodoo_Lou said:

December 17th, 8:17 am

@508 – Let’s hope so!

normalguy417 said:

December 17th, 8:23 am

I’m really getting fed up with this. Put the people who are posting on here and still don’t have a code on a special list and get it to us today!

Righteous-KungFu said:

December 17th, 8:41 am

do i have to be on a list to receive the code or should i just expect it?

Roeh said:

December 17th, 8:57 am

As with every other rightly concerned patron here, I too have spent days attempting in vain to download a product (“Sam and Max” The Devil’s Playhouse Episodes 1-5). At the time of this posting I have yet to receive any discourse from Sony in any shape, form, or fashion. I cannot say that I am particularly enthralled with the situation. Should Sony fail to rectify this matter within the next 24 hours I will be contacting my Credit Card company and informing them that I have been a victim of fraud and stopping payment on my PSN+ membership fee. You cannot take my money on the premise of offering a product and not deliver. Good day.

GldnBOY said:

December 17th, 9:53 am

To Liz,

Can’t write a long message…I tried to and got rejected so I will keep this short and sweet.

First, you have all of our email addresses. You need to communicate the issue and the resolution directly and clearly. We all do not live on threads.

Second, there should be no conditions around the codes. Either we all get them or none of us get them. We all paid. This is not a free service. Hey how about you send out an email with the codes instead of just messaging on PSN.

I am directing this at you because you are the face of this issue. I know it is not your fault directly but as the communicator you get the brunt. Your leadership needs to step up and fix this. Send this message to them to help.

Now that I am done venting I do appreciate how hard you are working this and want to say thank you. However, you need to fix it.

By the way…I would like a code as well.

chamenopsychi said:

December 17th, 10:05 am

As well had downloaded the demo and am a PS+ member and no code sent.

Budapesti said:

December 17th, 10:37 am

Okay troops, here’s the plan: Meet back here at 2200 hours and report in on whether we have received the code.
If not, given the lack of response from Sony, we should spam the other, more recent threads with request for an answer. Possible that nobody is checking this thread any more under the assumption that everyone has now happily received Sam & Max.
Either that, or they’ve given up caring. :(

Minishlink20 said:

December 17th, 10:45 am

I too have not yet recieved a code for Sam and Max, now, I started to download the demo the other week but never finished so do I have to download it all the way???

Please send the codes soon sony, I signed up to Playstation Plus for this deal and it would be really discouraging if I was unable to get it

    December 17th, 10:48 am

    We’re aware that some of you were not covered in last night’s batch of codes, and are working on a fix. Thank you for your continued patience! Clearly the situation is not ideal, but we should have a solution shortly.

Xuang said:

December 17th, 10:47 am

I have not received a code and I downloaded the demo when it came out. The only reason I bought playstation plus was because of the sam and max game.

GldnBOY said:

December 17th, 11:17 am


Thanks for the same note over and over again. It is re-assuring that in this you are consistent. However, could you define shortly. This problem has persisted for the past 3 days. We were told then that a solution would be available shortly. So if 3 days isn’t shortly, what is? Are the code mailouts not the solution?

Thank you,


SwissBanks said:

December 17th, 1:15 pm

You guys are not working nearly hard enough on the Sam & Max issue. It’s been days now. So far every free game PS+ has offered has been old and I either already owned it or it was something nobody even wants. This is the first game PS+ has even offered that I have any interest in and I can’t even download it. Great job, Sony.

To everyone out there unless you really like PS1 games, PSP minis, or want 60 minute trials of incredibly old games don’t waste your money on PS+. I only renewed my subscription to the Killzone beta but they were so limited I didn’t even get one.

Obviously you guys can’t even accurately mail out codes because everyone I know with the problem hasn’t received a code just the same sorry excuses over and over and over again. Good luck ever getting another nickel out of me for Plus membership.

SwissBanks said:

December 17th, 1:28 pm

SOME were not given codes? Try the VAST MAJORITY.

Vengeance88 said:

December 17th, 1:28 pm

Got my code this morning so thanks. However, it’s unfortunate that others are still waiting for this to get rectified.

aaront1983 said:

December 17th, 1:48 pm

Instead of sending codes, why not fix the problem? You seem to hint at the fact that it affects anyone that downloaded the demo or part 1 in full. I know that when trying to find the problem in the PSN program codes is like finding a shiny gray needle in a pile of silver needles. But that would be fine if you would just say that, instead of saying that everyone will get a code by a certain time. Then, when a lot of people don’t get a code, you say that everyone that didn’t get one will get one. While some people did get codes, it doesn’t fix the problem. I’m good with waiting if you can just tell us what the problem is and not give us empty promises.

normalguy417 said:

December 17th, 2:16 pm

I was really counting on Sam and Max to keep myself occupied. Now I’m just bored out of my skull. Can you at least try getting the codes out earlier today?

SolidFung said:

December 17th, 3:24 pm

Downloading Sam & Max right now. THX

Another set of codes will be distributed tonight, so please check your PS3 mailbox. Thanks again for your patience!

JohnnyMaxx08 said:

December 17th, 6:12 pm

Just wanted to share with you guys that now, finally, I received my voucher to download Sam and Max.

It took a little more time than expected, but I guess there must be lot of people to send those vouchers, so, it is ok.

Thank you guys. :)

JohnnyMaxx08 said:

December 17th, 6:13 pm

Ow, and @knowyourroll323, if you are having this problem with any game, try erasing your credit card information from your account first, and then try again. It might solve it.

Sorry for the double post, folks.

zachattacksox said:

December 17th, 6:15 pm

Still haven’t received a code. Is there a list I have to sign up on or something because I’ve posted on here several times.

jtneuge said:

December 17th, 6:24 pm

I was just able to download Sam & Max without a voucher code after not being able to download it the past couple of days. Everybody who hasn’t received a code might want to try downloading it again.

Voodoo_Lou said:

December 17th, 6:26 pm

I was able to download it now as well. Still no code, but the error seems to be fixed in the store.

xandn said:

December 17th, 6:28 pm

Just tried downloading Sam and Max and it worked! So stoked to play it! If you haven’t been able to download it, maybe try again? You might get lucky. Thank you Sony for fixing the problem! (for me at least, hopefully for others too)

aaront1983 said:

December 17th, 6:28 pm

Yes! It works! Thank you!

normalguy417 said:

December 17th, 6:50 pm

December 17th, 9:26 pm

y its keep sayin no funds added im paying with my credit card ?????
this is pisssing me offf,, i payed x men game with nooo problem
can some one help meeee please

x-cult said:

December 17th, 10:46 pm

All this fuss for a game that’s completely terrible

Budapesti said:

December 18th, 2:01 am

Yes! It’s finally working!! Thanks Liz, for keeping us informed and for putting up with our collective frustrations.
X-Cult, I guess Sam & Max simply isn’t your kind of game (point and click adventures ARE an acquired taste) because this is one of the funniest franchises out there. Calling them ‘terrible’ probably says more about your myopic view of what’s a ‘good’ game than the quality of this series.


December 18th, 7:48 am

I would like to leave the COD4 – Modern Warfare for download on the Playstation Store. I look forward to this release in Store. Fight for it!

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

December 18th, 8:32 am

yeah! put cod4 DLC for free next month. :P

btw sam & max is a big deception, my kids hate that “interactive video”.
and there is even no french track or subtitles translation…

ziggurcat said:

December 18th, 4:02 pm

i got my voucher and i’m just curious as to why the link to the sam & max bundle has disappeared from the PS+ section… nor is the bundle anywhere in the general store area (and for whatever reason, only episodes 1 and 5 are listed in the games section).

and as i have 2 PS3s, will i be able to download the game onto both machines or is it a one-time-only type of deal?
