Even when the PSN is back online, it seems there are big chances you can't play the game online.
"In the case of Mortal Kombat because there is a code that you must redeem for online play. Redeem This code goes through the PlayStation Store. The store is in contrast to the PSN this week is not online and will be offline for at least a few weeks." WOW
well if you are lucky you already redeemed the code, if not well...

@Starhawk Awesome! Great find. Totally excited to play MK9 online.
Are you can always go in to "Account Management" and then "Redeem Code". The store has been down and they have always had 2 way to use codes :) -Access to account management and password reset http://blog.us.playstation....
It amazes me that starhawk can find this info, and yet the "journalist" writing this article couldn't. It says something about gaming journalism, no? Good job starhawk, kudos to you.
Not only that but the game has an in-game way of getting to the code area. It completely bypasses the store entirely...
@Suicidal Very good point. Thing is they probably had read that, they just wanted to start some sensationalist rumor for hits and hoped no one would catch them out.
Yeah that's a mess.
So is anyone still in love with online passes?
yea I am.. im just out of love with sony. They messed up big time.
come on , let's admit sony aside , that needing a store operational to play your game online is quite out there and ridiculous . That's not a good way to do a pass , if there is any .
I don't know that anyone was ever actually in love with them.
i hate pass codes..
this is as bad as me needing to be online for killstreaks to work in offline splitscreen blackops......wtf lol and if u morons took the time to stop trolling and would read, when psn goes back up, anything requiring an online pass, redeem code or verication works. so your safe when it comes to this. people need to do research daaaang
Did you guys even read what starhawk wrote? This won't be a problem "Restoration of Online game-play across the PlayStation®3 (PS3) and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) systems -This includes titles requiring online verification and downloaded games" http://blog.us.playstation....
man no gives a crap about reading a wall text, just give me the cliffs note version
@Cheeseknight28 How is getting hacked in any way similar to knowingly releasing a faulty product? Gotta love the fans that are dumb enough to stand by a shitty machine due to extended warranties.
"knowingly releasing a faulty product" It amazes me that anyone can say something so ignorant and actually believe it. Microsoft spent over 1 billion dollars repairing launch systems after they extended the 360's warranty to three years. The money they lost when the brand image was tarnished can't be so easily measured. Still you feel Microsoft did this on purpose because they are an evil company. You also feel people who own the system are dumb for gaming on it. It's kinda hard to argue with your logic. That's not a compliment either. -Death
The failure rate of that piece of shit leads me to believe that this is true. I've had one PS3 and most of my friends who are PS3 owners can say the same thing. I don't know a single 360 owner that has their original system. http://www.dailytech.com/Mi...
@Hoje0308 Now you do... I have 2 systems that are original. 1 my kids use and one in my gaming room that my nephews usually play. My 3rd unit is a newer(but still not too new)250gb model that I keep in my bedroom... but it isn't even the newer slimmed version. And yes they are all linked via a SECURE lan system in my home. You want to be at my house for gaming night!
You can verify the code in-game, not only that sony stated when PSN is back games that require redeem codes or updates will still be playable
You can still update games now- I bought NBA 2K11 yesterday and it downloaded the patch when I put the disc in.
I have the Online-PASS via the Disc.
i still cant sign in with my ps3. it still says its undergoing maintenance.
disagrees for sarcasm... i thought it was pretty funny
I hope PSN gets up soon, but I've been enjoying MK online on my 360.
I bought it on xbox and it has been awesome. But to be honest there is so much single player Kontent that a bit of patience with the PS3 can't hurt none. The game is huge!
Kingsora who submitted this should be ashamed. Fact check before you post bull shit or else go work for HipHopGamer----he'll welcome you with open arms into the world of pulling shit out of your ass.
Damn =/ Really tempted to just pick up an Xbox copy and get rid of my PS3 one.
Fair point! I'm quite liking his inclusion
At first he felt really slow, but once you used to some of his combos hes a total badass. Definitely one of the funnest characters to use.
Yeah you do that, wasting another 60 bucks just because you miss out on 1 week online play. Also the site doesn't work, not even the original link. Flamebait article much?
No need to understate things, it's been 2 weeks and counting now. Let's keep it real folks.
No D-pad or easy to press buttons.
i love his quick time event moves
Under account management, you can enter the code... I mean, obviously this links to the store, but that may work just to register it against your name.
Yes, but normally you download something from the Store when you redeem a code. And the Store is not there, so ...
Not if its on the disc. It just unlocks it.
Yeah I thought there was a place you could do it with out going into the store? Not that I care either way because I suck at fighting games. I'm not going online with MK I made that mistake with Super Street Fighter IV.
wow i havent redeemed my code .......
redeemed it on day one and got my klassics too
I hope they fix this soon... they could send new passes to the ones that didn't redeemed their pass.... or simply remove the pass...
If they gave you a new pass, how you going to redeem that one? How are they going to remove the pass requirement? With a game update that you have to download using PSN????
you answered your question for yourself... :) with a game patch
How are you going to download that from PSN??
Patches are separate, you can download patches right now despite the PSN being down.
Sorry, I didn't know patches could still be downloaded even with PSN down.
Really couldn't care about not been able to play one game online for awhile. At this point I just want to play any game online.
Yes, but people of who purchased Mortal Kombat on the PS3 most likely had the intention of playing the games online components, especially if they're huge fans of the franchise...
Yes I understand. I have portal 2 co-op to play. But what I'm saying is I really don't care what I'll be playing I just want to be back online. Would you rather have another week of no online play and get to play MK online as soon as it's up or spend a week playing other games online while you wait for the store to come up
I couldn't really say, whilst I have a PS3, I'm primarily an Xbox 360 Gamer. I was merely stating that many people purchased the PS3 Version of the game for the Kratos Exclusive, but have now been left with an inability to play the online componant. That's all.
Ok I get it now. Think people bought the PS3 version for the D-pad.
I thought the code for MK was to redeem certain online features like king of the hill. I thought we could still play online even without the code.
No it is just everything that needs online play
oh well i put in my code before i started playing. I always put in my redeem codes before playing the game.
lol wat a mess
what? you take a look in a mirror?
Online Passes have failed already, they always were a terrible idea.
They make money from people that buy preowned copies so no it's not a terrible idea for them but i do agree that the shit ain't right. I should have the right to sell my game and my game says it's playable online.
Exactly. I'll never buy pre-owned games with online passes.
Is this one of those silly attempts to stop people reselling their games, buy putting in an artificial barrier. Its a pretty stupid idea no matter the platform.
I don't know if I care. Playing online doesn't do my ego any good anyway! haha
Next gen isn't looking pretty.
anyone who supports any game with online pass is an idiot.
My Sub Zero is hungry for blood!!!
my cage-fist is hungry for your nuts
