Well, I decided to go ahead and subscribe to Firstplay so I did and they’re happily downloaded apart from the last one which is still coming down.
Sounds all fine and dandy.
There are issues with the PSN Store whereby the free Minis won’t download because access to the store is nigh on impossible.
It took me numerous attempts to get on the Store to subscribe to Firstplay anyways. With errors about it not being available in my country/region or just a black screen which would and still is eventually bringing up the error: (80023103).
A quick search on Google shows a few but not many people complaining of the issue (currently – a regular Google search shows posts going waaaaay back to last year and beyond. I hate the new Google search layout but it came in handy for finding the latest posts!) but no info from Sony themselves so I’m left wondering how long this will be…
So I can’t get my free Minis to have a small, well needed break from FFXIII to keep me going and fight the good fight.
