PlayStation 3 Version of Section 8 Sending Gamers to Xbox LIVE Marketplace

PlayStation 3 owners that are trying to connect a Section 8 online game, which is using content they do not own (such as DLC) are getting this weird error message - sending them to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace in order to buy the missing content.

The story is too old to be commented.

It only does XBL?

I remember this happening in the past to some game, though I don't remember which. Funny stuff though.


Eh, more like predictable. It was bound to be said lol.

ShinMaster2951d ago

Like XBL was displaying PSN, or something like that.

kissmeimgreek2951d ago (Edited 2951d ago )

haha i think it happened in need for speed shift. except it was sending live players to the psn.

Mcrmarcher2951d ago (Edited 2951d ago )

I think the game your are referring to was NFS.

Edit: I seem to have been beaten to the punch lol.

if the PS3 could play 360 games... would that count as backward compatibility?

SCThor2951d ago

Bubble added for intelligent

Ghostneo2951d ago

PS3 does play 360 games - it just backwards compatibility due to the fact it's normally a cheaply rushed port. Have learnt when buying games for my PS3 to buy exclusives only, the rest I buy for the 360 ( shame but true )

karl2951d ago

ok, i guess its normal inhere to expect a serious answer about a joke.

XactGamer2950d ago

If the PS3 can go to Live does that mean we can finally have cross game chat?

commodore642950d ago (Edited 2950d ago )

lol at Karl
good one.
I love a bit of humour in the n4g battlezone.

Your comment begs the question:
If the ps3 runs the 360 Rdr version in b/compatibility mode, will it run better than the ps3 version?


karl2950d ago

Emulators always suck

Redrum0592950d ago

Same thing happened with other game on Xbox, I don't remember what was the game, but the error was in XBL displaying PSN.

I think was a game from Ubisoft or EA, I don't remember what was the tile of the game.

But was fixed with a patch.

Strange_Evil2951d ago (Edited 2951d ago )

If I remember correctly, it was Need for Speed...


Yup, it was shift...


Exactly, also on Xbox had the same problem displaying PSN.

captain-obvious2951d ago

it only dose everything
including XBL

i dont know why in hell did this guy buy this game

Persistantthug2951d ago

Obviously this game isn't worth anyone's time Downloading it in the first place.

Sarcasm2951d ago

No wonder that McDonald's ad showed up.

HolyOrangeCows2951d ago

Oh no! Advertisements, P2P servers, and 12 years olds!!!

gtamike2951d ago

W0o0oW...who in their right mind bought this game anyway?

MaximusPrime2951d ago (Edited 2951d ago )

i remember something like this happened on xbox 360. I think it was a game racedriver GRID.

It tried to connect to PSN store.

(im trying to find the article. It was on N4G somewhere..)

edit: found it, it was Need for Speed Shift.

Natsu X FairyTail2951d ago (Edited 2951d ago )
