I was going to buy it accidentally as the update wasn't up yet, it goes unto shopping cart where teh price is either 19.99 or 0.00 if you wait for the store to update, if you try to do it before the store updates its going to charge you.

exactly don't know how people just blindly purchased it without thinking

FamilyGuy3644d ago

Sucks for people that don't pay attention while clicking buttons. I always make sure it says 0.00 before grabbing the PS+ stuff because I've seen things I thought were free because I saw The PS+ sign and yellow text only to focus in an notice they were discounted items rather than free items. This isn't entirely the same but they did have a chance to notice the price.

I have this weird paranoia where even after downloading something for free, I'll check my bank account online to make sure nothing was taken out lol.

There is no such thing as being too paranoid haha...

ThanatosDMC3644d ago

Agreed. Pics/Videos or it didnt happen.

Listed as Free when I checked my PS Store on my PC at work (I have PS+ btw).

I have no reason to download it as I have owned Amalur since launch. It's a REALLY good game that I highly recommend people who haven't played it try.

It's a shame that 38 Studios went under as this was a glorious game and a nice refresher to the action RPGs that we have been getting. It would have also been nice for 38 to stay around long enough to put out a few more patches as Amalur has a few minor glitches. Nothing too game breaking, but a little annoying; don't let this stop you from trying this game.

How does this happen anyways? Don't you just go directly the PS+ tab AND selecting THE FREE GAMES TAB?

Or do people actively just search the damn game and immediately download it. I mean for crying out loud the UI is clunky as hell, enough time for you to observe whether or not you provide the purpose or not.

I downloaded this last night and got it for free. I'll check again to make sure, but no money was removed from my account that I can tell.


lodossrage3645d ago

But I know my bank account is untouched and I grabbed my copy of Kindgoms of Amalur off PS plus without fail or problems.

DarkBlood3645d ago

i dont have anything attached to my account so im good

raWfodog3644d ago

That's the way to go. Don't leave any credit card information on file and nothing can get 'accidentally' charged to you. If possible, use PSN cards to make your purchases and try to not leave any money sitting in your wallet.

DarkBlood3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

thats what i started doing for the most part. i bought a psplus card, if i wanted anything else additionally i'll get the desired amount by buying a card depending specfically on the purchase i intend to make.

which is why there should be more options other then $20 and $50 cards

edit: i couldnt even use my credit card for some reason anyways though i was able too before and theres nothing actually wrong with it as i used it elsewhere

Redinfamy3645d ago

Reasons why I don't attach my bank info to any of the systems, you never know what hiccups may occur.
