Here’s some new tidbit for those that can’t download their Game Content on their PS3 Slim. If you just recently bought a PS3 Slim and wanted to download your content to your Slim PS3 it will say to you “Please Deactivate a System”, I then decided to call Sony because I knew I only have 2 Systems the Original PS3 and the newest Slim version.
After being on hold, a tech support told me the reason and the reason is and I do quote him:
“I am not suppose to tell anyone about this but, since retailers sold the slim PS3 before the release day which is September 1st, the PlayStation 3 Slim was released with a small bug which prevents from downloading Video and Game Content since the firmware is not compatible with the content, this is why were releasing a patch (version 3.00) either later on today or possibly a day after”
So there you have it, don’t fret that the Slim won’t allow you to download your content it should be patched either later tonight or a day after like the tech supporter said.
UPDATE: It seems that this issue happens to certain slim consoles as it seems people can download there content.
UPDATE 2: 3.0 has fixed the bug, go ahead and download freely.
