Trying to install previously downloaded PS3 games - only gives me PSP option.

3 replies 181 views Edited Feb 10, 2013

As part of the welcome back program a couple of years back, I downloaded inFamous and Little Big Planet.  Now that my PS3 Fat got the YLOD I bought a new 250 GB Slim.

 

So I re-download those same games, going through my download/transaction history at the Playstation Store but the only option I get once they're downloaded is to install them for PSP/Vitae.  Why can't I install these games to the PS3?

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

There's a solution to this, using the XMB Menu, go to Account Management, then Transaction Management, choose the game(s) you want & then download your game(s) from there, they will install to the PS3 & not the PSP.

This is the correct answer? I thought Brit had the right one.
