The Last of Us Demo Inside God of War: Ascension Not Working, Error Code 80023017 Popping Up

While there are those of you who don’t want to play the demo so that everything feels fresh when you boot up The Last of Us on Friday, June 14th, the rest of you God of War: Ascension owners who can’t wait to play even a tiny bit of the game now have the opportunity to do so.

Ugh really annoying, first I was just getting the error code, now I can't even sign in

I guess you get what you pay for

Naughty Dog posted to Facebook saying "Once the PS Store goes online The Last of Us demo will be available for owners of God of War Ascension. Demo The Last of Us today!", so maybe the store was temporarily down.

PSN detected you're a troll. That's why you can't even sign in.

I guess you have to #dealwithit

You can't long in, cuz you have no PSN account, or a Playstation, or good/healthy gaming habits...."just Admit it, your in here to toll!!"

I don't care just give me the full game. This is a serious GOTY contender I don't need to try the demo out to see if it's any good. I hate demos of great games like this one,once finished I just ask for more.
2 weeks to go is all I have to say
insomnium2  +   861d ago
Too much awesome at once so it's no wonder we get errors.
If Microsoft goes through with their online DRM plans, this is the kind of stuff we will have to deal with every single major release.

I want to see if you will keep saying "you get what you pay for" by then.

I signed in and out all day didn't have a problem.

Yea the store was down for about a hour, and that hour just so happened to be when Last of Us Demo went live (0_0)
At the time I was pissed because Sony shouldve prepared better , but then again it was only a hour so im not complaining.

I signed in and out continuously to check and see if it was my internet and within that hour I signed in and out approx. 15 times.Someone ban that troll.

Wow, 132mb is pretty small. lol
kneon  +   861d ago
132mb is just the first part, there is a second download or install that took me about 5 minute. The installed size is 2.2GB.

It's worth it though, while it was short the demo was really good at giving you a feel for the game. The combat is definitely not uncharted

See...this is why I pay for xbox live. I thought paying for ps+ would help the situation but clearly it doesn't. I never have to wait so long for the things that I want on xblive. I hope this will be a none issue on the ps4.

I find it funny that no one can explain to me why they disagree... fanboyism at its best...lol

You fan boys can disagree all you want but for those of us who have both systems, you know this is true. AGAIN...Sony needs to figure this out.

@gamehard, and how would you know that?? You don't know me and u probably do not own a 360.

You never have to wait as long on xbl for something you want because it never has anything you want.
ZodTheRipper  +   861d ago
What do you want an explanation for? It worked liked a charme for me that's why you got a disagree.
Veneno  +   861d ago
Hey guys, be nice to MELMANAn, it's been a long time since certain fanboys could even pick deep deep deep down for any kind of positive news for their master. Stockholm syndrome is truly a sad thing to watch.
MELMAN26  +   861d ago
Obviously from the title of this thread it did not work like a charm for majority of us.

Didn't really need an explanation because I know what the answer is,(childish fanboysm). I just find it hilarious that if anyone says anything remotely negative on this siteas it regards to Sony u fanboy slam on the disagree button, and don't even know why.

On topic: it finally worked for me after an hour and a half of trying, and while the demo is short I will be purchasing this day one. Lookin forward to TLOU.
hadouken007  +   861d ago
stop being a fool, so many people downloading at the same time thats why,i had to keep trying to download like 6 times before it took.
Nes_Daze  +   860d ago
Funny, I use to pay for Live too, got kicked out of party chats randomly. I have BOTH systems, and I rather pay $50 for one that lets me play online free and gives me free games.
MELMAN26  +   860d ago
To each his own....I have never been kicked out of a party chat EVER, but this is not my point, when comparing the two, downloads take forever/much longer on the ps3, can you deny that?

vegetassj51  +   861d ago
It finally started downloading for me, what I did was go to the download list if you where lucky enough to click download from the GOW screen it will be in your download list. go through the Manage Account settings ,and just keep trying to get into the download list and keep trying to download it, I got so many errors until it finally worked.

I don't have the option to access the demo! It says that in the menu screen should press SQUARE, but I don't have it! I checked a friend's copy and it says right there Last of Us Demos right below the triangle option!

How else can i access it?!

Worked just fine for me.

The demo was super short, but good. Controls take a little bit to get used to but felt good.

The game was pretty much Resident Evil meets Red Dead REdemption. The camera style very much reminded me of Dead SPace 2 only with better graphics. Other than that it had a sweet crafting system providing you with a reason to scavenge for items and combat was strategic in terms of dealing with enemies to conserve your stuff.

I liked it. It didn't blow me away, but it's what I wanted. It's survival horror with more emphasis on survival.

Ready to pick up my preorder in 2 weeks on friday.

seems like a bunch of people must be trying to download it, I can't even access my account settings anymore after I tried to download it

Edit: They are doing maintenance? Really?!! That kind of ticks me off TBH, here I also thought they delayed it because it had MP to it, turns out it's the same demo the presses got, which makes me wonder why the delay, especially since they are doing this on the day it launches.

Another reason not to enforce always-online DRM.
This is perfect example of how bad it may be, right along with SimCity 2013.
kneon  +   861d ago
I don't think it was maintenance, just excessive demand.

Yeah :( hopefully this gets fixed soon.
garos82  +   861d ago
im in the eu tried it 20 minutes ago and it worked fine the first time i tried it

my personal review of this short demo: HOLY SH*T
ive never played a game as intense and atmospheric as this
check out the infecteds faces as you strangle them and they gasp for air!

How do you get to your download list? Only through the store? I can't even get into the store now. The whole thing must be down
Zechs34  +   861d ago
From the main menu, go into your transaction management and itll be an option that says Download List
Nitrowolf2  +   861d ago
From XMB - Account setting/transaction (i think)/Download history

you'll get erros, just kepe trying

Files sizes is 132MB.
BrianC6234  +   861d ago
How is the demo only 132MB? Are you missing a number on that? It seems more likely it would be 1320MB.
CZUM  +   861d ago
No. 132 MB the rest is inside GoW: Ascension disc
It's the Boston demo I think, not the Pittsburgh and Lincoln one.
kneon  +   861d ago
There was a second part which was either more download or installing from the disk. Once installed it's 2.2GB.
ZoyosJD  +   861d ago
There is a second download (not on disk) of 2.2 GB.
BrianC6234  +   861d ago
This is what happens when you make people wait months to download a demo and put it up for everyone at once. I tried downloading it right when the countdown hit 0 and nothing. Better to just let us download the demo when we get the game the demo comes with. No servers can deal with this amount of downloads at once. Will it take the weekend just to download the demo?
ninjagoat  +   861d ago
It will get sorted.

The_Klank  +   861d ago
Downloading now, once the small download from the Ps store is done you get the Last of Us client where you can download the rest of the demo.
Shadowolf  +   861d ago
Playing the demo now - I also received the error update earlier but Sony has apparently remedies the error issue. I would bet it had everything to do with the games demand as I'm sure thousands of users were trying to jump on the demo as soon as the count down hit '0.
nnodley  +   861d ago
The demo was absolutely amazing. Can't wait for the full game.
WeedyOne  +   861d ago
I tried to load the demo not long after beating GOW: Ascension and all I got was a countdown for release....

Figured it only worked on the 1st week GOW was released...
johny5  +   861d ago
how do you download the demo because when I go into the god of war manual/demos disc there's two slots empty and I see no last of us demo? did I do something wrong and is there a code?
dogmanx23  +   861d ago
I had no issues. Loved the Demo!
justrandom  +   861d ago
I'm downloading it right now.Anyone knows if I give my GOW;A to a friend,will he be able to play the demo?Or is it locked to my account ,unless he signs in with my account,thanks.

no problem here. i already played it! psn: cedaridge
