I was expecting the download to be up on Tuesday and now it's Wednesday and I still don't see it popping up.

I can't seem to download the game. Every time I click on download, it brings me to psn store for two seconds before sending me back to my library.

Yeah same here ---> I can't seem to download the game. Every time I click on download, it brings me to psn store for two seconds before sending me back to my library.

Also I wanted to upgrade to the Digital deluxe, but it won't let you, I can upgrade every other game fine, like Call of duty WW2 no problem add 40 bucks... so I called Sony they said it's on the developers end, same thing they told me about why it's not downloading it's up to the developer... Makes no sense but whatever at this point I just want to download the game I paid for....? Your suppose to be able to download 2 days before release on PSN... today is wed. game comes out Thurs. night Friday morning 12am...?? what the hell, why is it not able to pre-download like every other game.

ok thanks roger Prynne, and what about the reason why it won't let you upgrade to the Digital Deluxe version...? -On PSN store?

Not being a smarty pants, really would like to know why that's not working? Saw the good reviews on IGN so i decided to upgrade to the digital deluxe... but it's not working? it's asking for $89 dollars the full price of the deluxe game instead of the difference of 25 bucks...???

^ No idea mate as I don't know anything about PSN.

Somebody else will probably chime in soon.

By the way, can you change your platform to PS4 please.

Pre-Order Still not downloading on the US PSN (west coast)... "Download Error" without further information. Hope this is sorted out in the next 14 hours.

Well, it's not that easy... There are 3 Parties involved in this (SMS/BandaiNamco/Sony/MS) so it does take a Little longer to resolve such Things...

I read somewhere that the release is worldwide @noon BST.
Is this only for Steam or for all 3 Platforms?
So will I be able to play at 7pm EDT on PS4?

This is shitty, I am having surgery Friday morning. So all I wanted was to play this game for a few hours when it got released at midnight.

I can understand things like that can be complex to solve. But from my pov it doesn't matter.come midnight if this does not start downloading I'm gonna lose my shit and start crying lol

Okay so I am not the only one having this problem.
Hit "Download" PS Store for like 2-3 seconds and then im thrown back out again.
Stressful since i wanted to Stream the Release but sometimes these things happen.
Just happy to know this is actually a known problem and I am not solo on this.

Well this is an inauspicious start for Project Cars 2, hopefully not a sign of things to come. I did have a hard copy ordered, but cancelled it so that I could play at midnight of the 22nd. Patience is a virtue. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to sort this out.

A bunch of folks are having this issue.

We can't DL the game.

When you press the DOWNLOAD link, the screen just flashes and goes back to the DL screen.

The theme downloaded just fine.

According to the PCars Twitter, preloading for PS4 is delayed to 5AM BST, which is basically 12AM EST, so no preload.

Yeah yeah they tricked us like that yesterday already with the midnight thing.

Exactly, I've heard this before.. if they can fix it by 5AM BST, 12AM EST they can fix it right now... so this is complete B.S. _And what I really hate is it's on both ends, Sony says no it's the developers fault, (but they could have just refunded my money right then, yesterday) then the developers come out and say oh no it's out of our control... Right..., it's now just some no name persons fault and no-one is to blame... good to know


Just know that come Friday morning when this won't download, I will be Asking Sony for a full Refund, I suggest you guys do the same... and I don't want to hear sh*t Sony will have to say about it, and then I'm done with project cars 2 I don't care if it's awesome or garbage, I will put that money on GT Sport and forget I ever knew this game was coming out...

In all fairness its a Sony problem if its happening on their store for their console and there isn't anything SMS can do about that, the same thing happened when watchdogs 1 released.

Yeah I guess it sounds crazy, but I'm not mad at the developers or the game, I'm just pissed at the way Sony handled it, could have been nice and smooth, just gave me my money back I would have ordered it on amazon and got it on time..

But for better or worst I'm stuck with it from PSN, hoping this all works out, but at this point I don't have much faith.. fingers crossed thou..

Sorry for the rant, I guess stuff happens what can you do.

Sony live support chat says the problems are with the Bandai Namco servers and its being worked on.
Not impressed.

edit: my download still has not started. still giving same error and behaviour as the last 5 hours or more.

edit2: enough got downloaded to be launchable at midnight.

well I'm lucky I didnt take a day off today.
woke up this morning at 6h AM EST
start the PS4 to test it a bit before going to work

SURPRISE!
the game didnt download at all (even with the auto download thick)
started it
says it'll take 9hours....
its downloading at about 2-3mb/sec (I have 1gb/sec, network test shows me 550mb/s on download)

1st and last time I preorder a game on the PS Store
Should be able to play in 12 hours, cant wait!

Yeah was having this problem too, also have a 1gb/sec connection and it was going slow as hell, but I paused it waited , then restarted it, a couple times till finally it was coming in fast.. you gotta watch it though because it will dip back down.

So you might want to try that, anyway game is done downloading took about a little under 25 mins..

I have that problem with any download, but by using CCProxy (not allowed to provide link) on my PC and setting the PS4 to use it as proxy (in network settings), the download speeds become respectable and time drops from 8-12 hours to under 2 hours.
