Still can't get Minecraft Vita which I should have free with cross-buy (own PS3 version). It was launched on October 15 and still not working. I phoned Sony CS yesterday and they said they are aware of the problem and trying to fix it, I suggested they could manually add it to my account but that's not possible so it's just a case of waiting. The game is only £12.99 so probably give in and buy it again but it's just annoying that they are so useless.
Another issue I asked about is that there is no You Tube app available on my daughters sub account she uses on her Vita. Turns out it's age restricted (how about letting the parent decide?), to get it will need to create a new sub account and put a different date of birth. Again they could not manually allow the app or suggest a solution.
So pretty much a waste of time phoning them.

Mate they can not even get the messaging working on the network which is a sure fire simple fix,so what your asking is virtually impossible....
I don't get Sony,they literally teared Microsoft a new [censored] hole but since the Playstation 4 release there network has gone down the drain with many of the user interface in a state of tatters...
Somebody surely checks if what they are offering works correctly....obviously Not ...
It's beyond belief. I can't understand why they have not invested in the network and got the right people in to solve the problems, I don't see why it should be difficult. They have obviously made a great system and should have plenty of money within the gaming division to fix PSN.
As you know I have not got a PS4 yet so does make me consider Xbox as a option, probably will stick with Sony but does make me wonder sometimes.

No the Playstation 4 Swanny is a lovely bit of kit Swanny it's just the Infrastructure that needs funding ,like I said before it was free and now they have 100s of millions as its a paid service and its in a terrible state...
Fixing the stupid message system is not exactly rocket science now is it,and it's not as if it's just happened ,it's been useless for months.....
It's as if they don't know it's broken ,but just troll the Playstation forums and gaming sites in general and there are literally forum posts about it.
