I specifically chose the all digital version because I thought if the entire game is installed on the drive it would stream the best - but because the game is amazing and a little too much for this generation of consoles to handle it needs streaming from two simultaneous sources to perform at an acceptable level.
Proof (thank God for this being a top level member of the video gaming industry's press) -
So I would like my wallet funding of approximately $9.99 refunded back to my credit card and the $50 PSN Card credited back to my SEN account, so that I may pre order BF4 etc, and instead go spend $60 on a disc copy of the game which doesn't have these issues as bad and unacceptably as the PSN digital copy.
And I don't want to hear it can't be done. I had $14.99 refunded back to my account back in 2010 when my little brother in law mistakenly purchased BF 1943 on PSN.
Another acceptable method to me is that instead of all the refunds etc, Sony can deauthorize my digital copy and send me a disc copy in the mail or whatever way it deems best.
I'd love to hear other people's thoughts and woes on this issue. The digital version is clearly inferior to the hardcopy yet it wasn't advertised to be inferior. So we've got a pretty bad case of false advertising going on here. If the digital price was like $20 cheaper at $39.99 then maybe I'd have less to complain considering it wouldn't be offered equally to the disc copy version. But sadly, not.
Hello Recon. You should check out RockStar's support page on the various issues with GTA: V. You can find their support page here. Also see this thread for more information: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation
Can you provide guidance on what actions can be taken to resolve this issue? Rockstar has released no statements about having any plans to fix these issues and I have spoken with Sony customer service and they have refused to process a refund for my purchase. I am an extremely unhappy customer and right now my only option is to go out and purchase a physical copy of the game for another $60.
Although this is mostly a Rockstar issue, I'll still do my best to help you with the situation. Have you attempted to re-download the game from the store yet? I realize this may take a while to do, but it is the only thing I see that could be solved on our end. If that does not work I suggest contacting RockStar directly through their support channels I linked. You can contact them through Twitter as well which they seem to be active in responding to.
