Did you download a copy of Resident Evil 6 from the PSN? If so, are you one of the lucky people that received the following error message?
“THE COPYRIGHT PROTECTION INFORMATION IS INVALID”
If so, Capcom has released the following message to you via IGN:
“Essentially it is recognized that some consumers who downloaded the game from the PSN store pre-loaded (pre-order) or within the early hours of launch may be experiencing problems booting up the game. In short, early purchasers who tried to download the game from PSN store may have seen an error message, after they downloaded the day 1 patch. The patch has created an issue and prevents people booting the game. The temporary fix to ensure people can enjoy RE6 today as intended is to ask those people to un-install the game (only if they originally saw an error message) and re-install the game. This time they won’t be prompted to download the patch and the game will load. Please note however, these people won’t be able to play against disc owners on a temporary basis. We are working with SCEE (Sony) to fix this issue and a patch is imminent to fix the issue. Please note that those people who downloaded the game from the PSN store originally won’t be able to access RE.net at this time, but this will be fixed by the imminent patch. We will keep people updated as soon as we know more and thank them for their patience.”
So far Sony has not responded. What are your thoughts on the download debacle? Is this something we will see more often as digital copies become more commonplace? For me, I will always stick to the physical copy, there is just a bit more pride knowing that I am in control of the disk/cartridge. Plus, if I pre-order, I might even get it early (my friend Stefan received his three days early before release).
