i've got all the Mortal Kombat DLC characters now, and they work 100%
yesterday i got home and bought the Freddy Kreuger DLC, i use the US store since i have the US game. it was $4.99 but the download was only 100kb.
this had me confused since the other characters are like 60-70mb. i thought maybe freddy was always on the disc or he's a simply re-skin of another character.
but anyway downloaded and installed, updated to 1.04 and he's not in the game.
does he need to be unlocked or something? cant select him anywhere. other DLC still works perfectly and i even got the skins that come with Freddy for Sub-Zero.

Sounds like he was included in the patch and the 100kb is simply an unlock (not all the uncommon).

cool that would explain the very large patch compared to the usual ones.
anyway i solved the issue which pretty much proves what you said.
when i updated the game, i was playing on my normal AU account. so it downloaded the patch from the AU server i guess.
so i guess it kinda made my game the Aussie version, meaning the DLC wouldnt work. or something i dunno but i deleted the MK game data, downloaded the patch while logged in to my US account, downloaded Freddy and he works.
just gotta re-download all the rest now

nah didnt fix it. freddy DLC works, but only if im logged in to my US store account.
all the other characters are fine, work across the board. all except freddy. and he's friggin awesome
does anyone have MK and plays under an Aussie account, and has freddy working? please speak up, im getting pretty ***** about it.

Thats what I get too.
Though my copy is a UK version.
Lame as really, as Ive already unlocked everyone else.
And I really dont feel like unlocking everyone again,
Including the arduous task of besting Shao I'm a cheapskate Kahn with Raiden again...
(bah took me 2 weeks before and battering of my controller )
Why they couldnt just leave him out of a patch install
seeing as how he is a downloadable character...so people who dont
want to download characters
(which imo should have been included in the first place $10 says at Christmas
or early next yr we see an "ultimate MK pack" with all dlc and some lame arse bobble head or something)

well i fixed it, and im an idiot.
freddy is now there, you just gotta keep scrolling across as his icon doesnt fit on the screen. go to that bottom left where the DLC characters are and go as far left as you can, he's bloody there.
ignore me im a *****.

Lol I'll have to check this out when I get my copy back from my mate.
even though Im sure I will feel like an idiot.
Its a badly designed UI if Freddy is not right there infront of you.
Actually I might just add that downloading this from the UK PS store
was a "nightmare" ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha damn Im funny
