free games what free games ?
« on: Jun 07, 2011, 01:47 am »

i downloade yesterday 1 of the 2 free games after countless error messgaes i finally got it start downloading, the next morning however i discovered that the download was broken because there was not enough space on the HD :(

I mean come on wtf i have a playstation3 but my HD is not so big it seems but at that time there was no choice. i have just 3 games on there that's it. So SONY txs but no txs for offering free games which (i'm sure i'm not the only one) can't doffload.


I feel so ripped off now.

Indeed, the price of hard drives suitabe for PS3 is small now, and even with a modest budget you can get a 250gb drive and install it yourself.

As I mentioned in my other post, a 640gb drive for only 40gbp is insane value for money.

lol i was in the shop the other day and asked if it was possble to upgrade your HD but, they say it wasn't easy blablabla... and i would loose all data on the old one. Besides that i live in a town with no real gameshop here in Holland so they have to send my PS3 somewhere and that will take a week. i never saw a upgraded HD on the shelves so far lol it's even hard to find a second controller. due to no demand for such things. I'm not technical so i doubt i can change it myself :(

I'm kinda thinking your looking at the wrong places.. It's easy to find a 2nd controller.. look online. The same as the new HDD.
Here is a link from a comparison site where you buy the cheapest controller.. http://www.budgetgaming.nl/game-profile ... dware.html

And just browse the internet to find what good HDD there are.. Google is your friend.
Also, if you don't wanna send ur PS3 away .. you can always try and do it yourself. There are easy guides on the net that can help you with this! Like Gamespot, they made a step-by-step guide on how to do it.. It also tells you how to backup ur old data..
http://www.gamespot.com/features/617609 ... hard-drive
Along with another website.. http://vgstrategies.about.com/od/ps3che ... pgrade.htm

I don't know what kind of store you went to .. but I'm sure it wasn't really good. They probably wanna rip you off as well.

It's not difficult... if you can use a screwdriver, and a computer/usb stick... simple.

You will only lose the gamesave data that is copy-protected... GT5 is NOT copy protected (but Lego RockBand is, as an example)

Just waiting for my new HD to arrive, then I'll get on with installing it.

I explained this to Andy on another thread... it's fairly simple :)

... except, now the Store is just returning an error message... must be too much demand for it!   :evil:  :roll:

Oh well, try later...   :lol:

If this happened, go to the XMB and under the PlayStation Network column, go to Account Management>Transaction Management>Services List>SCEA Promotions to download the game for that first slot.

I wasn't referring to the HDD (It's Hard Drive Disk) but to the fact that you couldn't find a 2nd controller :)

This video just confirms what Bruggen has said, but maybe a visual guide is easier for some people...   8-)

I already tried and it worked like a charm.
It was the same as Sony said to my Email :P

Got Dead Nation, Infamous and Little Big Planet now :D
