If You Buy Resident Evil 6 Via PSN DO NOT DOWNLOAD Day 1 Patch
Apparently, Resident Evil 6 is not very good. Let the flame wars begin against Capcom begin because they chose to have an action game version of the franchise. Well now PS3 gamers have another reason to be disgusted at Capcom about because Sony´s digital download initiative is not getting off to a hot start, at least in Europe anyway.
According to Kotaku, some gamers in Europe reportedly had issues with their PSN download purchase of Resident Evil 6. So, Capcom released a statement telling those gamers how to solve the issue.
“Essentially it is recognized that some consumers who downloaded the game from the PSN store pre-loaded (pre-order) or within the early hours of launch may be experiencing problems booting up the game. In short, early purchasers who tried to download the game from PSN store may have seen an error message, after they downloaded the day 1 patch. The patch has created an issue and prevents people booting the game. The temporary fix to ensure people can enjoy RE6 today as intended is to ask those people to un-install the game (only if they originally saw an error message) and re-install the game. This time they won’t be prompted to download the patch and the game will load. Please note however, these people won’t be able to play against disc owners on a temporary basis. We are working with SCEE (Sony) to fix this issue and a patch is imminent to fix the issue. Please note that those people who downloaded the game from the PSN store originally won’t be able to access RE.net at this time, but this will be fixed by the imminent patch. We will keep people updated as soon as we know more and thank them for their patience.”
Remember that this may only be happening in Europe and only affects people that downloaded the game from PSN via the digital download pre-order, or the early launch buyers.
