PSN will undergo a major revamp.
The site will change its layout, search function, and more. The makeover will start in Europe on October 17th, and on October 23rd in North America. Sony issued a statement regarding the revamp. The statement, along with images of the new site, can be found below:
“Aside from the totally re-imagined user interface with brilliant visuals and branded destinations that showcase content, the new PlayStation Store also adds predictive search, improving filtering to make search easier and faster. It also offers more in-depth information about purchases, demos and free trials, as well as movies, TV shows, games and apps, letting users browse and discover new types of content.”
CVG reports that some people have experienced issues when trying to load the game if it was bought through PSN, and after the day one patch was downloaded.
Capcom released a statement to IGN, explaining that “essentially it is recognized that some consumers who downloaded the game from the PSN store pre-loaded (pre-order) or within the early hours of launch may be experiencing problems booting up the game. In short, early purchasers who tried to download the game from PSN store may have seen an error message, after they downloaded the day 1 patch.”
To temporarily fix this problem, uninstall and reinstall the game. However, only do so if you saw the error message first hand. This time around you won’t be prompted to download the patch, and therefore the game should start without any problems. The patch will also fix the access problems players who purchased through PSN had with RE.net
Originally a PS2 game,the title is also included in the Killzone Trilogy collection box. However, if you don’t feel like purchasing the remaining games, this is a great alternative.
