Guide to purchasing the Call of Duty MW3 Collection 1 DLC .

[ Edited ]
22 Replies 4,607 Views edited 19-04-2012

Hi guys,

 

The process for obtaining the Call of Duty MW3 Collection 1 DLC is slightly different from normal PS Store purchases. 

 

To make the process as smooth as possible I have detailed the steps below.

 

Enter the Modern Warfare 3 category on the PS Store via the in-store. 

 

Purchase the product called  Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 – Collection 1 and you will see the Purchase Completion screen displaying the message Thank you. Your purchase has been completed.  At this point you will not have to download anything. 

 

Select the "continue shopping" option then "back", this will return you to the Call of Duty Category.

 

There will be 7 different products, one for each disc version (e.g. BLES01429, BLES01433, etc).

 

Choose the version that matches the BLES code on your game disk (this code can also be found on the spine of your game box) and the 6 maps and access key will be added to your download list.

 

Download and install!

 

 

If you select the wrong version then don't panic, you return to the Modern Warfare 3 category at any time and select the correct version. 

 

Any questions please ask.

 

SFZ

this was a bit confusing at first, but i now like this better than what they had done before. by doing it this way, your guaranteed to get what you paid for. so no more of accidentally buying the game with wrong country code.

Whenever I go to the downloads the only option I have is a BLUS code, yet my copy of the game says BLES 01428. Any idea why and how I can change that? Thanks for this advise, because this is definitely what's wrong and not letting me play the game.

Sounds like your using the U.S store but have the Euro version of MW3. You'll need the U.S (BLUS) version of MW3.

You can't. Exchanging of codes and physical items aren't allowed through the forums.

Sorry.

Sorry, I was so happy that maybe we can solve the issue that I/we have, that I forgot the rules. (I will try to manage it 1:1)

 

Nevertheless I think we are not the only MW3 owners who have this issue and the official support from Activison is questionable, but find below their answer. In case you have a better idea I open for that, but I would say to bring this people together under one forum could be very helpful.

 

"Dear Peter,

Thank you for your contact.
For future correspondence concerning this case, please refer to the following reference number when contacting Activision Customer Support: 00000000

I am sorry to hear that you are unable to use the DLC because of the BLUS and BLES code differences. Unfortunately we won´t be able to change the disc for you. Please always be aware that discs from a different region will always cause compatibility issues especially with downloadable content such as the map packs.

You will only be able to enjoy the map packs with a disc from Switzerland with a BLES code. You could try to change the disc with someone that does not want to play the DLC material. Another option is to sell the disc and replace it with a Swiss version. I do apologize that I am unable to change the US disc for you. I hope that in one way or another you will find a solution for this.

Thank you for contacting Activision Customer Support Europe. If you have any further doubts or questions, please don't hesitate contacting us again.

Best regards,
XY

Hi,

 

I purchased the DLC pack yesterday but it doesn't seem to be working.

 

When I try to play I am getting the message 

 

WARNING

 Searching for DLC is taking some time. Do you wish to continue?

 

When I go to continue it repeatedly does the same thing?

Try deleting your COD DLC using the Game Data Utility, then reinstalling COD, then updating, and finally putting the DLC back on.

Also, if you're having online issues, disable any torrenting software you have.

Are you sure it doesnt say something like "searching for matches is taking a long time - do you want to disable DLC" (or something like that)? If so Its just having trouble finding other players that also have the DLC.

Double check that BLES code on the game case AND on the disc matches the code required for the DLC. Make sure you downloaded the correct versions and the access keys.

Hi,

 

I have downloaded collection 1 and 2 according to your advise, Collection 2 works well but collection 1 is not in normal rotation and I can't play it even though I have all maps in bounus section. It seems the maps are not connected to the multiplayer and there is no other players. What is your suggestion? Tnx.
