What is even MORE frustrating about the error is that they are saying NOTHING about it.

December 15th, 5:17 pm

Can I haz Sam & MAx?

HBKO said:

December 15th, 5:21 pm

Fieldrunners Again? We Got That Months Ago For Free. Give Us Something Different Or Keep Track Of Wat U Put Out For Free. U need To Give Us Something Else. Why Are We Paying To Get The Same Thing. Thats Not Fare.

Elvick_ said:

December 15th, 5:21 pm

lol… I got Um Jammer Lammy for $2 -new- and it’s a physical copy just this August. Digital Distribution fails so much it’s not even funny. Also… $30 for Prototype? Wow…

Anyhoo, great PS Plus update with Sam & Max, hope you fix the error soon. The beta for DC Universe Online is awesome though.

HeLLeVeN11 said:

December 15th, 5:59 pm

lol Hey SONY maybe the Sam & Max error is caused by Fieldrunners repeated free offer. Try removing it and putting another MINIS that you did’nt offer for PS+ yet and see if it works :P

Lucky13X said:

December 15th, 6:35 pm

Thanks for the update regarding Sam and Max.

I was concerend yesterday if the content had been pulled due to complaints from previous purchasers.

whitetigergrowl said:

December 15th, 6:48 pm

Since I’m not able to download the Sam and Max game because of the error, I’ve been playing the heck out of the DC Online game. Lots of potential with the game. Has lots of potential!

Lethal_Visionz said:

December 15th, 6:55 pm

I was extremely excited for Sam & Max and of course a full day later it still doesnt work, hurry up with a fix because this is ridiculous.

CrueBrew said:

December 15th, 7:26 pm

I still can’t download Sam & Max. I also get the same error on DC Online beta. But that might be because I got a beta code from Gamespot.

Hard to believe it is taking them this long to fix the problem. It isn’t like it is the weekend.

matriXiXiX said:

December 15th, 7:27 pm

This sam and max hassle is such bull crap. Nice way to treat the plus members. DISGRACE.

Tank_Baked said:

December 15th, 7:39 pm

Had no problems downloading anything last night. Even bought Xmen and Marvel Pinball no problems.Thanks ps plus!

Revolutionary said:

December 15th, 7:42 pm

Question, in what universe does “shortly” mean over 24 hours?

toology01 said:

December 15th, 8:08 pm

Maybe we should just scratch the sam and max download, and you can credit everyone’s account with $35. Id rather pick up some other games anyways.

aaront1983 said:

December 15th, 8:11 pm

Check twitter, then check your PS3 in four hours.

GGCAN said:

December 15th, 8:15 pm

Strange seeing all the posts that people can’t download Sam and Max.

Mine downloaded really easily.

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 8:15 pm


in the PlayStation Universe.

I mean, do you really expect Sony to be quick and efficient with ANYTHING? ha.. hahah… hahaha…. HAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!

dream big, VERY big.

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 8:16 pm


check WHERE on Twitter? what username?

jgrizzle358 said:

December 15th, 8:19 pm

From PlayStation’s Twitter Page:

“PlayStation Plus members: Sam & Max not downloading properly? Check your PS3 message box at midnight or so tonight, Pacific Time.”

OutKast206 said:

December 15th, 8:44 pm

still have yet to fix this…c’mon sony….you can do it!

MrBeatdown said:

December 15th, 9:00 pm

@368 (jgrizzle358)

Thanks for that. Sounds like they might be sending us vouchers for it, meaning we get to keep it instead of losing it when our Plus subscription ends, not like I would let mine expire anyway.

robjh77 said:

December 15th, 9:14 pm

I’m wondering has anyone been able to download Sam & Max yet if so let me know

UltraRazpacho said:

December 15th, 9:22 pm

I guess there sending download links via PSN like they did with the Killzone 3 beta.

UltraRazpacho said:

December 15th, 10:30 pm

Yeah, I was right. I just got my PSN message with the download.

Thanks Sony! :D

Minishlink20 said:

December 15th, 10:50 pm

Ok It wont download for me, so how do i get one of these download message links?

EVApunk said:

December 16th, 12:09 am

Yeah its 1208am here and STILL no PSN message for sam and max, i am PS+ member,,are they going to send to ALL psn+ or do u have xcontact them?

RiSYN69 said:

December 16th, 12:12 am

@EVApunk, I’d recommend contacting them. I’ve done that. It’s 2:10 AM here and not a single thing from sony is in my inbox… I too am a PS+ member.
Perhaps they’ll read this and send a code to RISYN69 ;)

Elex163 said:

December 16th, 12:13 am

Yup just checked and got a message on ps3 at 1:00am eastern time. A voucher for all episodes and it’s downloading without error.

RiSYN69 said:

December 16th, 12:14 am

Perhaps I’ll take a shower and come back and see if it’s been sent lol

EVApunk said:

December 16th, 12:15 am

how do i contact sony to let them know?

RiSYN69 said:

December 16th, 12:19 am
A form to fill out is under the 6 button options

arose said:

December 16th, 12:21 am

Waiting on the voucher for Sam & Max.
Wouldn’t know how to contact anybody to let them know I’ve got the error code, so posting here is my best bet i suppose!

El_Hoardo said:

December 16th, 12:37 am

Give it time. One guy got it before midnight pacific time so obviously they aren’t sending them all out at exactly 12am. I don’t think they even can send out so many unique messages all at once. I haven’t gotten one either. Just wait a little while. Maybe a day at worst. Sure it might be a little inconvenient, but seeing as how we are getting our downloads via a voucher, it seems like we will get to keep them permanently, not just as long as we subscribe to PS+, so at least we are getting a little bonus out of the extra wait time.

jim2890 said:

December 16th, 12:39 am

it is 3:38 am my time 12:30 am pacific time and im gettin the sam and max error and still no message in my inbox

jgrizzle358 said:

December 16th, 12:51 am

hmmm… no message here yet either…

time is now 2:49am Central time, so that’s 12:49am PST

watch me be one of the unlucky ones who doesn’t get it til noon tomorrow or something. lol

and people wonder why I make fun of Sony

RiSYN69 said:

December 16th, 1:04 am

Well my wait time is up for tonight, I have a college final to complete for tomorrow/ today. Surely/ hopefully they’ll have it to me later on at least. As for everyone else, good luck and hopefully you get a code!

Budapesti said:

December 16th, 1:08 am

Seems like they’re staggering the send-out of codes. Go to bed people, I’m sure we’ll all have messages in our inboxes in the morning.
I was wondering though – for those who were lucky enough to have no problem downloading (not me, unfortunately) will they be able to ‘gift’ their code to friends, or will it only be downloadable to those with a PS+ account? I gave away my PS+ exclusive KZ3 Beta (Don’t like Killzone) to a non + subscriber, and it worked fine.

DopeBoy3010 said:

December 16th, 1:44 am

for how long shall i wait? what about the guys who suddenly deleted their message box?

Redikol said:

December 16th, 3:07 am

Well 6:00 AM and no message sent yet for me, just updating, not being mean, I know Sony is doing their best. I’m going back to bed, hopefully I’ll have it when i wake up.

WINAS3 said:

December 16th, 3:11 am

4:08am here now, mountain time…eh still getting the error code and still nothing in the message box, was hoping to start the download process before i went to sleep this morning, hopefully it will be there when i get up then. yawn*

Ecks said:

December 16th, 4:09 am

After 7am EST (4am PST) so I thought I’d check for the message about Sam & Max. Nothing in my PS3 message box. I really hope this is resolved soon.

PhadedWun said:

December 16th, 4:21 am

Well that’s all wonderful that they say that. Download still isn’t working, no message in my inbox.

BinaryJay said:

December 16th, 4:34 am

7:30 AM Eastern Time. Thought I’d wake up and finally be able to download this sucker before work… no message, still doesn’t download. All I can say is WOW.

Budapesti said:

December 16th, 5:00 am

Does anyone know if the download code is meant to be in our inbox on the PS3 or out email address that is tied to our PSN account?

BinaryJay said:

December 16th, 5:05 am

They said PS3 message box on twitter.

tom72 said:

December 16th, 5:17 am

7:15 AM central time, no message here either for Sam and Max. You know I never got a KZ 3 beta either, and yes I am a plus member. Give Sony some time though, I bet its not easy to set up vouchers in a short amount of time.

JohnnyMaxx08 said:

December 16th, 5:56 am

So, they’re going to send us codes to download sam and max? Nothing in my mailbox or messagebox in psn either.

I also never got the KZ 3 Beta, but that’s because there were just for the few firsts to download the kz3 theme, so that’s ok.

Now, this download is for everyone. I know it takes some time, but this “shortly solution” is already over 24 hours and nothing… :/

Well, still waiting. I’m having lots of fun with DCUO while I wait. :)

I want sony to know that I find it ridiculous that we were marketed a PSP Go (which I bought), and not even offered the full PSP library. In fact, I sit here and wait, every week, for games to be released on the network that Have release dates from 2007. And they never come out. Can you PLEASE at least release the PSP games that we should have access to anyway? Ys 1 & 2? The Final Fantasy games? Etcetera? And do you even read comments in the late 300s?

surgesnugs said:

9am EST and no PSN Message for me. Let’s go Sony.
