I wish I would have known it was like a 2 hour download. I would have did this overnight. Still have a 1/2 hr to go. Oh well can’t wait to play it.

cautionfire said:

December 15th, 11:23 am

people are getting pissed….

talk of the town this week was the sam and max episodes for free.

everyone, including myself, are just getting error msgs or “this content cannot be selected” if we try to get the individual episodes. and then, like magic, the 1-5 pack disappears from the store front after we try to download it.

if it doesn’t get fixed by the end of this week will it at least be extended till next week? or can we get mailed download codes? or an extra year of playstation plus ??? lol?

but seriously… Come on SONY i have surgery tmr and i was looking forward to being stupid on pain killers and playing sam and max for the next 3 weeks =[

Can any of you dummies at Sony reply? This is stupid. I’m returning my PS3 and get an XBOX 360 because they treat their customers better than ya’ll do. Get that Sam and Max error fixed you puzzies.

You are an idiot. Shut up and go play Call of Duty and tell me when you start playing a real game that isn’t designed for testosterone filled twelve year olds.


December 15th, 11:45 am

I downloaded sam and max ep1 , then all the episodes disappear . then i checked my download list and they were all there. Anybody else having trouble finding the other episodes , CHECK YOUR DOWNLOAD LIST

How does DCUO work? All I get is a never ending loading page!!! When is teh Sam R Max error gonna get fixed?? DCUO, is it working?

retro25 said:

December 15th, 12:01 pm

Boring update, there’s no PS one games for me to get example: Gex2 and Ridge Racer and there’s nothing interesting this week but nice background though very christmasy.

normalguy417 said:

December 15th, 12:03 pm

@ Busca-Cabezas

That loading screen is there for a reason. The actual Dcuo Beta is about 15 gigs so its just installing.

razorstar said:

December 15th, 12:09 pm

This is a response I got on twitter 12 hours ago: There’s an error if you previously bought one and bought the Plus deal. Codes are coming in your email, stay tuned

I downloaded the demo a while back. My guess is that if you downloaded anything associated with Sam and Max is causing us this problem.

    Grace Chen's Avatar

    Liz Walsh said:

    December 16th, 11:17 am

    Yup. Check your PS3 message box late tonight. We’re sending round 2 of codes. Sorry about this issue :(

TeKkAmAnGaMmA said:

December 15th, 12:31 pm

Same here. I downloaded the demo way back when. :p Hope to see a code very soon. :)

Caudill said:

December 15th, 12:39 pm


Yep, I downloaded the demo too when it was released and am getting the error code. My bro, who is also a PS+ member, downloaded Sam & Max with no problems at all and he’s never downloaded the demo, so that must be the cause of the error.

Don’t know why Sony isn’t updating the blog here to let us know this, doesn’t seem like a hard thing to do. Not everyone checks twitter…

Wonder how long (hours or… days) it’ll take to get this code from them.

SlackerTD said:

December 15th, 1:02 pm

I’m in the same boat… I had previously tried the demo for Sam & Max & am receiving the same error. I’m sure it’ll be fixed soon… either way though, I have plenty to keep me busy, with over 30+ games on PSN alone I have to play. :)

siriusbee said:

December 15th, 1:40 pm

I’ve also downloaded the demo, but never purchased the actual game. Anyone know if it has to do with any demo data that may remain on the PS3, or is it an issue within the PSN store itself?


December 15th, 1:46 pm

Still cant download Sam & Max. Almost a hole day later. Error (80023102. Hope its fixed soon.

mmitch079 said:

December 15th, 1:52 pm

Still getting the error code on Sam And Max. Add in the Beta Rewards program not registering any quests or things I do, you guys suck right now.

Senor_Jonny said:

December 15th, 1:55 pm

I’m still getting the error code as well and can not download. How is this “soon” fix coming along? it has been almost a day.

Neo-Death_X said:

December 15th, 2:26 pm

So the Burn Zombie Burn zombie that we were promised centuries ago has turned into a very late, non-exclusive zombie mask? Really?
And the Sam & Max game not even working?
I love Sony for all that they do, for the games they produce and for the amazing system the Ps3 is … but the support for their customers is extremely lacking.
Hope the S&M problem gets fixed .. and I hope we get the Avatars and Exclusive Home items that were promised and never delivered. :-)

jwspiker said:

December 15th, 2:29 pm

very odd that no update for the ps plus members having troubles with sam and max. It’s not working for myself either.

ziggurcat said:

December 15th, 3:13 pm

any word on the 80023201 error trying to Dl sam & max? it’s still occurring.

ziggurcat said:

December 15th, 3:14 pm

that would be the 80023102 error…

Mario_16 said:

December 15th, 3:30 pm

i dont like at all the dc universe beta, 15 gb and the time i spend downloading that game… not worth

BinaryJay said:

December 15th, 3:43 pm

In what world does the last word of “soon” mean more than 24 hours later without a fix nor a word about it?

ziggurcat said:

December 15th, 3:46 pm

@328 – 15gb? really?

Mario_16 said:

December 15th, 3:49 pm

@330 yes… 15gb

Mario_16 said:

December 15th, 4:14 pm

hey im playing the episode 1 of sam n max , no error here.. add me if u want to see that im not lying

zachattacksox said:

December 15th, 4:18 pm

I heard that the error for sam and max happens if you have previously downloaded the demo for episode 1. Still no word on a fix though. Hoping to be able to download it tonight but I doubt its going to happen…

greddygoon659 said:

December 15th, 4:45 pm

i still get error on sam and max

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 4:50 pm

so, it has almost been officially been 24 hours, and the error STILL isn’t fixed. Sony, I understand u have a lot to do, but some things are just unacceptable.

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 4:56 pm

@28 the DCUO Beta is NOT 15GB, it’s 127MB with a 122MB patch, that’s not even 1GB, let alone 15.

there are 1,024MB in 1GB, do the math

HeLLeVeN11 said:

December 15th, 4:57 pm

@Mario_16: Still no luck for me just tried and getting that damn error again and again.

normalguy417 said:

December 15th, 4:57 pm


actually it does a 15 gb install once you download the patch.

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 4:58 pm

I wonder if this blog post will get more comments then the MW2 Stimulus Package, or the LBP2 Beta Codes…

@jgrizzle358 nop, 15gb

Mario_16 said:

December 15th, 5:01 pm

@HelleVen11 i dont know why i dont have that error.. but its better to me

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 5:01 pm

@normalguy417 oh really? my bad.

doesn’t 15GB seem a bit much for a beta of all things? especially one that’s still as buggy as the day is long?

I hope to God the actual game won’t require that kind of install, or i won’t get it. I can’t afford that kinda hard drive space

Budapesti said:

December 15th, 5:10 pm

It does seem the the Sam & Max error is tied to whether you downloaded the demo or not.
The irony for me is that I downloaded it just the other day in order to qualify for the Rewards Quest to ‘download and play five demos’…and that doesn’t work either!
Seriously, it would be nice to get an update on if Sony’s tech people are actually working on a fix. Even if you’re completely clueless as to how to sort it out, it would be a lot better than just ignoring your customers. That said, I’ve come to expect this from the company. Customer service certainly isn’t SCEA’s most impressive characteristic.
Was really looking forward to some free Sam and Max this weekend. All I’m saying is, I’m glad it’s also available on PC and that I have Demonoid membership.
