PLEASE NOTE - this only applies to North America Collector Edition Owners. Europe/Asia was not impacted
If you previously redeemed your Collector Edition online pass, and only received 24 hours of XP boost, we have addressed this issue and provided you a NEW 48 Hour XP Boost to use one time. To acitvate it, just login to the PSN Store and go to the God of War section (use Search). You should see a nice shiny new 48-Hour XP Boost waiting for you. We hope this helps rectify your Kratos-like-rage. Effectively, you'll now have had 72 hours of XP Boost - not bad =)
XP Boost Rates ------
We have seen a number of users comment that they are not receiving 2X Double XP Boost, and receiving a lesser rate. The 2X Double XP Boost was a unique special for the European Collector Edition only. For North America, the rate is less than 2X, but is still accelerated for that time period.
We are looking into our first Double XP weekend, not this weekend, but likely the following. This will be great for everyone to ascend to higher levels.
We know you are anxious for further updates on all things, we have them incoming. Thanks for your patience and we hope the above resolves for those who did not get their full 48-hour XP boost.
Just--Tank, I went to the store and it is NOT there!
When it was loading everything for Ascension it showed 3 Add-Ons and then it switched back to 2. There is nothing on there for a 48 Hour XP Boost and I have the Collector's Edition.
The PS3 just had a system update to 4.40 and I have no idea what that was for, and the store updated to version 1.04.
There is no 48 Hour XP Bonus anywhere that I could find on the PS Store in the US.
> I should also mention that God of War: Ascension does not show up in the Search field. Only God of War III and God of War: Origins Collection are in the listing.
Not to my surprise, It doesn't work. I am a NA collector's edition holder. Thanks Tank!
Friendly reminder, this only applies to those who purchased the CE in North America.
If you redeemed your CE XP Boost within the first 4-5 days of launch, and were given a 24-hour XP Boost instead of a 48-hour XP Boost, you can now head back to the PSN Store and you should see a new 48-hour XP Boost to activate.
If you redeemed your 48-hour XP Boost in the last few days, you shouldn't have been impacted and thus, a new pass option will not appear in the store and you should have received a full 48-hour XP Boost.
