Alright, I feel like a complete ass for asking this, but I can’t get it fixed myself.
I was lucky enough to win the SFxT DLC pack on the forums and I was actually looking forward to at least try Bryan, Sakura and Cody but I can’t get the DLC pack to work
I live in the Netherlands, Europe: the DLC pack prize was only valid in the US Playstation Store. MrWizard was kind enough to point out I could simply make a US account on my PS3 and redeem the codes there; worked like a charm.
However; the characters are still greyed out in the game and I can’t use them at all. I redownloaded the character pack about 7 or 8 times, I entered the code again a couple of times but to no avail.
So the situation is this:
My original, Dutch account works but I can’t download the SFxT DLC there.
My second account, based in the US, created for downloading the DLC, CAN download the DLC but CAN NOT use it.
What I did notice was that my Juri and Law swap costumes, which I bought for 1 euro, are accesable on my US account.
Could the fact that my swap costumes were bought in the European/Dutch Playstation store mess up the US character DLC?
If somebody has a way around this problem, please help me out. This really bums me out, I was looking forward to trying the new characters…
