Odd World keeps downloading as demo ?

8 replies 215 views Edited Jul 16, 2013

Everytime i download Oddworld it says I've downloaded the demo. I deleted and downloaded a secondtime still reads the same I'm downloading it from the PS PLUS section.I haven't had the chance to see if it will play out as the full game yet. Anyone else's coming up like that ?

I would contact live support, they should be up soon. Go to the wrench at the top of the page, labeled support then click live chat when it is available, best i can say.. and a lot of the times people don't know anything on these forums anyway, at least the support actually gets paid..

A lot of games do this.. The game downloads as a demo, did you ignore that you also downloaded a full game unlock with it? Nothing is wrong though your download is fine.

Check your Download List. There should be an unlock key there alongside the demo. It's ony a few KB in size.

Have you played the game yet? Maybe once you start the game up it checks your account and see it as a full game under PS+.

It's common that a PlayStation Network game is downloaded in its demo form, for that's the way PlayStation Network games are commonly built. Most often if you happen to download a demo for a PlayStation Network game, you'll frequently reach the end of the demo where the game is then asking you to purchase the game. In other words, the game wants to know if you want to pay money for the unlock key.

 

In Oddworld's case, PlayStation Plus is giving you the demo in addition to the unlock key. You're given the body of the game alongside what enables you to play it in full. Does that make sense?

I understand how this works but why do you have to download the whole game just to demo it?? I feel like the demo should only be the size required for the content of the demo. Sure it is convenient that if you like the demo you can just buy the full game unlock and start playing instantly, but me personally wish some of the demo sizes were smaller. Thus far I have yet to purchase a full game unlock from a demo.
