can't buy DLC because of region issue (and it won't credit PSN purchases to game)
First of all, I have tried contacting you guys several times via Facebook, Twitter, Email, TLOU forums and even on Amazon reviews. NOTHING. Without doubt the worst customer services I have experienced ever, for anything.
I hope I'm going to get some customer support for this, at last, having found this site.
Now that's out of the way, I have what should be a very easy fix for you.
I have a disk copy of TLOU remastered for PS4 that I bought off Amazon from a UK distributor. It turns out this disk is region "ALL". My account is UK.
I can't therefore connect to DLC to buy DLC through the game itself. I did locate the DLC via the PS store and buy some DLC, however, it has not been added in game.
What I hope is a simple fix is if you could please change my registration of the game to UK. That way I can activate the DLC I have bought myself.
If you can't do that because of the disk or whatever, I would like the following activated on MMATycoonDOTcom (my PSNID)
Enforcer, Scoped Semi Auto, Damage Marker, Fortitude.
I can provide invoice numbers if necessary.
p.s. I tried creating a US account to get the weapons I already purchases but it wanted me to purchase them again.
Playing Factions multiplayer online requires a Playstation Plus account.
One last thing I would like to check, before I buy the game again.... There is no online licence for used games is there? i.e. If I buy a used copy I would not have to purchase an online licence to be able to play online?
No, DLC must match the region of the account and the disc in order to work.
A UK copy of the game (00557) would work with your UK account.
If I buy DLC on a different account set up as "US", will that DLC also be useable on my original UK PSN account?
If that's a no, would it work if I just got a UK copy of the game and sold on my US copy? I have 101 weeks progress online in the game so I really don't want to start again!
Unfortunately your account needs to match your disc. This is a PSN limitation, so we would recommend contacting them with your request.
Thank you for the reply. It's 00552, America.
The ALL I was referring to was a little black square on the back of the box, so I dunno what that is.
What is the 5 digit region code on the spine of the case? There is no such thing as an "all region" disc.
American is 00552
UK is 00557
European is 00556
