I Try To Redeem My Two Free Games...


So I went the PlayStation Store and the Welcome back offer was finally up, I took the following picture:


Heck yeah! And then I selected it and saw all the cool offers!


I selected the FREE PS3 GAME 1 and...


uhm... lame.
So I tried again and went back to the offers only to find out that the first one was already gone! the fuuu...?!


So then I was like fudge that and turned off the PS3...


Yes.
I tried again later by downloading that Pixel Wonderland Dynamic Theme and it worked! Now I have pixalated clouds moving through my XMB menu...


So I thought everything was good now and tried my luck at redeeming my first game through the second free PS3 game... but alas... I could not. Instead I was riddled with more errors...


and also this thing came up when I tried selecting the GET NOW button when you are in the FREE PS3 GAME 1 or 2. It came up in both cases...


And of course I got another error following that one...


To top it all of, both offers are now gone...



How To Get Past All The Errors And Get Your Free Games

What can I do? I can ignore all the errors and keep trying, that's what!

I finally got my games by trying and trying. I ignored the errors and kept pressing X until it worked. If you tried to redeem and the offers are now gone as pictured above but you did not get your games here's what you can do:

Go back to the XMB menu and under PlayStation Network, choose Account Management.
Remember you might get an error such as 80710D36, ignore that shizznit and try again. and again. and again. Until finally, you get in!

Once your in select Transaction Management.

Then go down to Services List. If you get an error, it will show an empty list, you have to go back and retry until finally you get a list of at least one item: SCEA Promotion.

Select SCEA Promotion. And there you should see your offers once again.

Select an offer and from there you should be able to download your games. Once again, there will be errors left and right, just ignore them until you see the little red bag appear by the game(This means it's now in your download history.)

After countless error messages, my two games are now downloading :)
