While we can see that some gamers have already managed to download Black Ops 3 from the PlayStation Store without any problems, it is not the same for others unfortunately.
Spare a thought for the millions of gamers over in Asia, as it looks like the Black Ops 3 download is not even out yet on the PlayStation Asia Store.
Everybody playing from countries such as Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong all want to know “When can I download Black Ops 3” – but it looks like Sony’s PSN Asia team has been somewhat lazy in making the download available at the same time as other regions.
Right now, we can see that we can’t download Black Ops 3 from the PSN store. You can still access the pre-order page for the game but when you do that it leads to a dead link if you have already pre-ordered the game.
This is different to the listing early on Thursday when it showed the image as you can see above – letting you know which versions had been purchased.
Now the image below is what the current Call of Duty Black Ops 3 listing looks like on November 6- you can’t click anything, the previous icons have disappeared and you certainly cannot start your download.
We can see that we are not the only one having these issues as some gamers are already talking about it on the PlayStation Asia Facebook page here.
Let us also make you aware that these problems are already on top of the fact that PlayStation Asia has completely ignored a pre-load option for gamers living in Asia – complete silence on the matter too when asked why the rest of the world has it.
For now, it looks like gamers in Asia are at the mercy of Sony’s PSN Asia team when they finally decide to get to work on updating the store with the download links.
Do you live in Asia and are having the same problems right now? How do you feel about this treatment compared to gamers in US and Europe?
Update: The download is finally available in Asia! Go grab it from the Store by manually searching for Black Ops 3 – let us know how you get on and see you in game!
