GearNuke: "MLB 14: The Show was supposed to be one of the many Day 1 Digital title for the PS4, which allowed its user to download the game on its official release. Unfortunately, in the case of MLB 14: The Show, it never worked."
Sony has to get that right... Especially with the preloading coming
So they don't deliver and yet force you to spend the money on their store anyway. I disagree with these politics :(
"Offers Refund For Digital Purchase"
My issue with digital download is when you download it and there's some kind of corrupted data that messes with your game. It happens to me a lot with my PC games. You have to go and download it again. With games being bigger in size, I don't have the bandwidth nor the patience to go off and re-downloading it. From a disc, if anything it'll take less than a minute to get everything up and going again. Also I don't know when the pre-loading feature will come, but I'm guessing it's with the next update. They said it will come, not "it's here".
Update: The PlayStation Store download issue regarding MLB 14 The Show on PS4 has been resolved. We apologize for any frustration this caused, and thank the community for its patience and understanding. http://blog.us.playstation....
im so disappointed, i bought it on the ps store a day before hoping to play and now i get this BS from sony
Pre-loading is the most overrated thing talked about this gen. They need to get this fixed, but I have full confidence they will do so.
This has nothing to do with pre-loading. This is Day 1 Digital. Pre-loading isnt even available yet
It better work for watch dogs
While it kinda sucks, I think there's a bit of an overreaction here. As a person who's played MMOs since the mid 90s... never expect anything to go as planned on day 1 of any digital release. Never. Hopefully Sony fixes it so that their future pre-loading plans actually work. And, hey, you know, perhaps they make sure all their exclusive titles utilize it? From the article: "A whole set of angry comments were posted by various users on the official PlayStation Blog and reddit regarding Sony’s failure to deliver on their Day 1 digital program." Looked at both sources. Both pale in comparison to the vitriol being shown here. Good ole game journalism.
Wow a comment with some common sense. You really expect gamers today to except anything but perfection. I mean no one can ever make a mistake right. Humans are perfect right? It's really sad how upset people over some minor things. Stuff happens sometime in life, and even though it might be a minor inconvenience, you just have to work through it until a fix or solution comes. I'm sure Sony is aware of this issue and will handle it. Do any of you complainers ever make a mistake at work? Opps, I forgot that all of you are perfect. You know sometimes my cable or Internet goes out. Is it the end of the world? Nooo. Sometimes peoples car breaks down or anything else made by humans can break or stop working. Does the world stop going? Nooo. Some of your need to come back to reality and realize this perfect world your imagining doesn't exist.
I never depend on anything digital day one. You hit it on the head anyone who has high expectations for day 1 digital content is asking for trouble unless you can download it days in advance. I am sure it will get fixed eventually but I find games are always better to just go to the store and buy it or at least buy it online for launch day shipping.
this stuff is still new so let's give both sony/ms some time, i am sure both will get this right moving forward
It's still early into this generation and some hiccups should be expected and accepted. Sony will get it right but being upset about it is understandable. For the inconvenience Sony should offer affected customers a 5.00 or 10.00 PSN store credit as an olive branch to people who didn't get what they paid for when they staid it would be available.
Don't worry Sony has your back later on :)
Nice name hehe Actually last game I took off for and pre-ordered was MGS4...after that really didn't care anymore,.one more day or week to play a game, no difference to me...it just didn't feel the same, too much PR around games, loved the time when gamers hyped games nor people that don't even play games themselves...I guess Kojima had right: "War has changed..." it was metaphoric about VG industry:P
Shame for the people who bought the game digitally hoping to be able to download it first thing this morning. Sony shouldn't be advertising something if they aren't going to back it up. It's poor business practices.
At least they get the refund. But it's pretty disappointing not being able to play a game you were looking forward to.
And to think yesterday I was about to cancel my reservation at gamestop and buy the digital version instead because I wanted to play it before classes this morning, glad I didn't
From where I stand there are still 14 more hours in this day. As long as I get it today no harm done. Something tells me the game will pretty much be the same no matter what time I download it today. Read a book, go for a run, do some house work. The sky is not falling.
Problem is Sony promised it at 12:01am. It was part of their whole "Day 1 Digital promotion" telling you that you can get it before everyone else does because you can start the download as soon as the clock strikes the next day. Kind of defeats the purpose huh?
In life sometimes things happen. Does anyone actually believe they purposely told people that the game would be available at said time, only to turn around and not be able to deliver? Is it slightly frustrating? Yes! Is it the end of the world? NO!
You're talking to self entitled gamers, they won't like this comment. How dare you tell them that the world doesn't revolve around them! How dare you!!!
I guess I just don't know a lot about making a software file available for download, but it sure doesn't seem like it should be that big of a deal. What am I missing?
Refund my ass. I just got off the phone with customer service and they told me that they said it would be available "after" 1201 am est and that it's being packaged with the PS Store update LATER today. Complete BULLSHIT. No option of a refund or credit of ANY kind was given to me which is damn rediculous. Told me I can call back after the store update goes live to "try" and get a refund.
I called back and hour later after this post and spoke to another person who gladly gave me a refund. Went to Rapestop and copped the disc version.
Almost 12 hours now...still...nothing...
glad i just walked to walmart and bought it. much easier process. lol
While this is definitely disappointing, at least they may be able to get a refund. The case could be that they have a legitimate reason why this occurred, I would wait and hear official word about what exactly transpired. A few questions to lend some perspective. Have other PSN digital releases had this same issue? What about Second Son, did that release as promised? If so, I believed this could be just an unfortunate situation. My point is, any system is prone to glitches. Should be interesting to hear what really happened. On the plus side, the game looks really good, and that coming from someone who isn’t in the least interested in MLB games. Hope you all enjoy it if you get your hands on a copy.
No other games had this issue, Infamous released fine and Watch_Dogs should be start of games allowing preloading. One problem on a game that frankly is a minor release compared to some really isn't worth the fuss people are putting up.
It's a bummer for those who paid for the digital download and aren't able to play it, i'm sure sony is working on the problem to rectify it. I just hope they have the problem fixed before watchdogs come out later this month, i pre-ordered the digital download a couple weeks ago
I would of been mad if it was me getting nothing day 1. I need my game, ya know!?!
