Be Careful When Buying VCS On PS3!

Recommended Posts

Kingzy

I made a major mistake today, hopefully after reading this, you don't make this mistake also.

 

After waiting all day during school, being super hyped to buy VCS for the PS3 after, I made a big mistake. I went onto the PlayStation Store and went to the Search Bar. I typed in "Vice" and it automatically came up with ONE game that said GTA : Vice City Stories. I click on the game and buy it immediately. It downloads about 2 hours later and I select the game. I am now SUPER hyped now that I have the game that I never got to finish the story to. A message comes up. It says something around the lines of "Plug PSP in PS3". I'm really confused at this point. It turns out that I had bought the PSP version of VCS. Which is quite stupid, as thats the only option that came up, and it barely notifies you that the game is a PSP only game. I was and still am the maddest I've been in a long time. After a couple minutes of looking and digging around the PlayStation Store, I finally found the actual game I was looking for.

 

I hope that if I can get anything out of this, I can stop others from making this simple mistake.

That surely is a bit tricky. The best way to avoid this is to look in the "PS2 Classics" section. Thanks for the advice and thumbs up.

Im sure you could talk to a PS Store Representative to ask if you could switch the game. If its at the same price of course.

 

*Words of the WISE*

Remember to always read anything or everything that you buy online. A few things like the fine print could make along way.

Both versions are going extremely cheaply in the Easter sale. I've just picked up VCS PS2 Classic for a measly £1.99
