Playstation Store Glitch Gives You Free Games (Doesn't Let You Play Them)

The new Playstation Store is here! With a new design however, comes new glitches. And the latest glitch seems to be affecting the Playstation Plus free extended trial service in a rather serious way. (PS3)

I can imagine steam letting me download half life 3 but not letting me play it.

Gabe Newell will out do this trolling mark my words.

this was in the old store as well?
You could dl the trail and it'd register as a full game instead, unfortunately they have kind of fixed it I suppose. :/

Did Sony just "Troll Face" us?

This happened on the old store too.. Nothing new here
WildArmed  +   1103d ago
Yup, this is just how Free Trials work. Thou the glitch seems to be after your Free trial is over, you can't buy the game.

It happened to me with bf3... I was like, "For real?"
brodychet  +   1102d ago
why the disagrees? He's right. Wtf lol. Disagree facts.

When PSN first came back after the brief outage, they messed up some of the prices and I got Sam and Max for free lol. They were priced at $0.00 (unless I'm missing something and they were given away)

It was free for PS+ for some time. Could that be why? I still have all the games even without plus I think I can still play those games! :)
RELIGHT  +   1103d ago
"But doesn't let you play them.". Then it doesn't give you free games genius
Summons75  +   1103d ago
Funny but good luck trying to do the glitch with those god awful load times and messy messy set up. I want the old store back
RivetCityGhoul  +   1103d ago
i liked the old store too, it was way more organized.

This store looks nice but it can be improved.

speeds have gotten better for me, not sure for anyone else. the only thing i hate is the boot up load, so long!!
wsoutlaw87  +   1102d ago
ya all the icons load up much faster
irepbtown  +   1102d ago
Mine is slightly laggy. And a tad bit confusing.

The old was smoother, faster, easier to understand.

Though the new one looks 'premium' and matches the PS3 very nicely.
e-p-ayeaH  +   1102d ago
I only check the store like 1 time per week i can wait 30 secs.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1102d ago
Yeah, old was better. I don't even know why they changed it.
Geovanny  +   1103d ago
The new store has its ups and downs
Donnieboi  +   1102d ago
More downs than ups.
Nodoze  +   1103d ago
The new store looks great, but is sucks ass. Half the time I go to download something it ends up with an error. I do love the way it looks, but if it does not serve it's primary purpose WTF is the point!?
e-p-ayeaH  +   1102d ago
Same goes with some games...good graphics crappy gameplay.
andibandit  +   1102d ago
continuing on the OT remarks...

same goes with some food...look good, crappy taste.
dazbobaby  +   1103d ago
I bought a new PS3 this week to play Blops 2, the old one had a faulty blu-ray drive, so I started to download previous purchases off the store... what a complete farce, some stuff downloads, some give an error, some wont activate without restarting the PS3 and trying again.

The PSN store is in a sad and bad way.
If it's not broke, fix it 'till it is.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1103d ago
Excited over nothing.
dboyman  +   1103d ago
This is why I never use the PSN Free trials....
KwietStorm  +   1103d ago
Yea? Really?
dboyman  +   1102d ago
Yes. I tried one time on the the free trials and had the exact thing happen. Until Sony fixes the issue, Ill rent the games instead...

Oh and the new Store may look pretty, I find the functionality gotten worse.Especially when ordering something or searching the store

I like that this was figured out like 4 days ago and revealed to be trials, yet we still have an article about it. Sure it sucks, but Sony seemed to realize it was a problem back then.
BaSeBaLlKiD721  +   1102d ago
They need to change the checkout process... I don't want to go through so many steps just to download a free demo.

gaffyh  +   1102d ago
Full game Trials have been on there for years now... why do people still not realise this?

Well at least you will be able to brag about the huge library of games you have...even if you are cursed to never experience their joys...ever...all alone with games that don't even want you...
Soldierone  +   1102d ago
I like the visuals in the new store, but function wise I hate it...So many clicks just to download a demo etc...ugh.
Cam977  +   1102d ago
That's exactly what crossed my mind yesterday when I looked for some things.

My friend and I have experienced something similar, we kept the stuff though.
I got Driver:SF (full version) for free whereas my mate got glitched Plus that never ends and a free inFamous avatar pack.
leogets  +   1102d ago
Store its great in terms of look but to download things why take you to 4 different pages before u can accept..
medziarz  +   1102d ago
This is Sony,

What ever they do, it launches buggy and glitchy and missing basic options :D and then they patch it for months, sometimes years to get it working the way it's supposed to :D
0pie  +   1102d ago
what about if you go play halo 4 and shut up?
