Pre order codes - £5 off voucher not giving me full amount off the game?

[ Edited ]
33 Replies 1,588 Views edited 23-02-2012

I got my Vita today with the pack, entered the code as it said and I've heard nothing back with regards to my £5 off.

 

Is this normal? I know it said 72 hours for the other content but nothing for the money off code.

 

* It has also been mentioned there that the new codes received do not give the full £5 off, click below for solution.

Hi guys,

 

Those who now redeem their discount voucher going forward will see their chosen title in the store for the advertised discount price.

 

Those who have already purchased their chosen title with the incorrect discount will be credited the difference back to their wallet over the next 2 weeks.

My Avatar and PS Home content email came within 24 hours of me entering the code

 

My £5 off Super Stardust code came thorugh last night, over a week and a half from when I entered my redemption code from the pre-order pack

I entered mine on the 21st and so far haven't heard anything.

 

Check your spam folders though as sometimes it might get stuck in there.

 

As for me I'm still waiting, I chose Super Stardust as my discounted title. Not sure if it's a title specific issue or what.

And what about those who chose what game to get a discount on yesterday, are they getting a code or do we have to watch the PSN store for our discount magically appear on the chose game.

 

*sigh* Sony why do you ALWAYS screw up things like this? I aslo haven't gotten my Wipeout 2048 code via SMS from the partner provider here in Denmark.

PSN should change. I entered my code yesterday for Escape Plan. It was £6.49. I held of buying it. this morning it was £4.99, so I bought it.

 

Everything should be sorted. Refunds going out over the next 2 weeks as Rabid says.

I tried out my code and selected my game - got the email a couple of days later, so thats fine. Wanted to put it against Super Stardust Delta + advanced Star Fighter Pack Bundle, but it only discounts the standard game. Bit of a shame as I would be prepared to pay the extra difference between the two - £1.49 for standard game and £2.99 for the bundle with the £5 discount. Since it only gives me the option to get the standard game, I would be chucking away a fiver if I wanted the bundle. Doesn't make sense to me. Why not discount both, and let me choose? Otherwise I will not bother with the advanced DLC.

I only got codes for the PlayStation Home objects and the avatar. I didn't get a code for the discount. How does this even work?
