The Last of Us Factions Multiplayer (unlock) issue
First of all, I apologize not posting in the Community Technical Issues forum but the link it’s dead.
I have a used PS3 copy of the game (BCES-01584). I’ve recently downloaded the The Last of Us Add-On Bundle and installed all its individual items, including the The Last of Us Factions Multiplayer (unlock). However, I’m still unable to play Factions MP. When I try to connect to the servers it still prompts me for the Network Pass.
A couple of things I’ve noticed which might be of interest: even though I’ve a local copy, the disc code is different from the one in the URL to the The Last of Us Add-On Bundle (https://store.playstation.com/pt-pt/product/EP9000-BCES01585_00-TLOUADDONSBUNDLE). I’ve also noticed it’s written “The Last of Us Remastered” in the icon to the The Last of Us Factions Multiplayer (unlock) item.
Also, the community forums are here:
BCES-01584 is the French version. BCES-01585 is the British version.
The British bundle should work just fine for the French version as well. I know this because I've talked about this with a French player on another forum.
Anyway, the free dlc bundle should have a dlc called "Network Pass The Last Of Us". Locate this in your download list in the xmb (liste de telechargements), alt. view downloads in the ps3 ps store, and download it again. If you can't find it, download the whole bundle again from the ps3 ps store, and then check again.
This should hopefully give you access to Factions (provided you do the "switch to xmb"-trick while it's connecting, or the ps3 will freeze/hang.
You'll also probably notice that a lot of the dlc is still locked in the menus. Why some of the dlc don't unlock is still a mystery, but my best guess is that the ps3 can't quite handle installing all those dlcs at once correctly. Therefore you have to go through the download list and re-download every item that's still locked individually and manually (just like with the network pass).
