"PlayStation 3 owners who hopped online to snag the new PlayStation Network title, Pain, might have noticed a few issues. You're not alone -- I experienced issues, too. Two characters (a creepy looking Santa, and the scantily clad female, Cookie) wouldn't load for instance, giving me an error message which told me to re-download and install Pain to correct the problem (that didn't work).
It's because of these problems, as well as issues with the online leaderboards (there were none) and a broken video on the community, that Pain has been removed from the PlayStation Store. But never fear, the problems are being fixed, and the game should be placed back online shortly."
