I redeemed my Collector's Edition code on Wednesday the day after the game came out (13th).
There is no 48 Hour XP Bonus on the PlayStation Store. It shows Add-Ons 3 and then it immediately changes to 2 so there is something glitched with the store.
No XP Bonus shows up and my CE code only redeemed as a 24 Hour code.
I called Sony and they basically said the network is in bad shape and numerous games are having issues along with trying to get everything functioning on the store.
People can't even get the store to load or they can't get online and the girl I spoke to said they're constantly going in and out of maintenance.
The rep told me that she can see the 48 Hour XP Booster in the store on her end but she thinks the store is glitched for consumers and she isn't sure why it's not showing up.
I had a 48 Hour XP Booster from GameStop and I don't want to be screwed out of my Collector's Edition XP Booster simply because they can see I had a 48 Booster in my list when I should have had one from each.
Just went to the PSN Store...48 XP booster is there, but I can't download it, because it says I already did. Which is a lie. I downloaded my 48 XP booster when I got my CE copy and was informed that I had a 24 hour booster.
More work to go, SSM people. This is getting old. Trying to be patient.
The exp bonus for the eu player would have kicked in automatically when put in your dlc code.
If this is true then I was f$#king robbed because because there was a maintenance or other crap and I couldnt even play multiplayer.
I have a video as a proff

I got the GS boost, the (US) CE boost and the RotW boost, so I should've had a whole week of bonus xp starting Saturday, including Tuesday when the network was out anytime I tried to get on. Not sure if the first 2 bonuses worked but the RotW one seems to be bugged. I think it was working fine until PSN updated, so that may be related somehow. I'm guessing because I don't know the normal xp rate but I was getting an average of 1500 xp per TotG match before the update and now I'm getting about 500 average. You guys really should've included a timer that we can turn on/off so we don't waste so much of the time. You guys also should've been more up-front about the details of these boosts as far as how much of an increase it's supposed to be and for how long.
Edit: Under further examination, I realize I forgot to account for xp from labors, which seems to be the reason (or at least part of it) behind the inconsistency in the amount of xp I've gotten.
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.
Well, GameStop was advertising it in NA as a 48 hour double XP boost, so if that wasn't the devs intentions, they should talk to GameStop about their misleading advertising before they get both parties sued for false advertising.
The gods overestimate themselves.
