major FAIL by sony
 
first, they implement the 1.7 update allowing preloading and they don't include their system-selling first party title (mlb the show 14) with that option.

then, they advertise that you'll be able to download the show digitally "anytime after 12:01am EST" on their marketplace store.

well...it's after 1am EST and the option to download the game i already paid for is STILL not there.

soooooo....given the fact that my PS4 (even hardwired) grabs a little less than half the download speeds that i can get on my computer or x1, and given the fact that it's now well past my bedtime and i won't be able to even START the daggum download until lunchtime tomorrow, i will be (hopefully) playing the show 8 hours+ after i could have been playing if i had just gone to gamestop in the morning and bought a physical copy.

i are pissed. highly.

not a good experience with my first digital download on the ps4.

major. effing. fail.

I thought about going to Wal-Mart to see if I could get it around midnight, but I figured the people there would probably have no idea what I was talking about.

They didn't even put the game up on their servers. Un. Freakin'. Believable.

Looks like I'll be doing two things today:

1) picking up a physical copy.

2) going round and round with Sony until I get a refund for their digital abortion.

Should be a fun day.

If this is the biggest problem in your life than Im jealous haha. How about saying screw it and just going outside and playing real life sports or physical activity instead of wasting minutes of life on a video game.

This is a gaming thread. On a gaming sub forum. Context is always important.

Now, you may leave.

I confess that I did. I apologize. Now continue on with your mountain dew and bagel bites.

Amazing, isn't it?

I guess the irony of his position coupled with where he's preaching it is lost on him.

Such is the internet.

I might not be buying another game until Feb. next year. I'm sure they you could have waited a couple of days until they get it figured out.

They really botched this one somehow. There are a lot of mad people on the forums. I wouldn't bet on a refund.

They'll get it fixed, eventually. I doubt they'll give refunds. Maybe they'll get some kind of gift card or something.

I get that this annoys you but this is hardly a major fail. You want to see what those look like go read about the diablo 3 or sim city launches.

I consider it a major fail because of the fact they know of Diablo 3/Sim city issues. If it was a first of it's kind I would be ah that's not that bad, but the fact they know what needs to be done now to get it out, it's a major fail.

they're telling people that they're refunding...quite a few posters over on operationsports.com have reported back after speaking with sony either on the phone or through their live chat.

of course, at this point, i wouldn't put it past them to be lying about giving the refunds to us...been a pretty big cluster so far.
