I'm a big fan of your Sam and Max games and have held off until now on Season 3 because I wanted to play it all in one go instead of having to wait between episodes. After reading that the final episode had been released yesterday I decided to purchase the season on my PS3, as my computer is sadly somewhat lacking in it's capacity to play games. Also, for the record, I should probably state that I live in the UK.
Upon entering the Playstation Store I discovered what seemed to be a package for the entire season for £19.99. However, when I purchased it I discovered that it was not a package of all 5 episodes, but a 100kb upgrade key for Episode 1 which, as I stated earlier, I had not bought previously.
The description for the item said that all episodes would download automatically upon release, and seeing as how the release dates for the finale of the series passed yesterday, I believed that the unlock key was perhaps a simple message telling my system to download all the episodes automatically. However, upon checking my download queue, I discovered this was not the case, and that my download queue was empty.
My next thought then was that perhaps the key was simply a code to let the Playstation Store know that I had bought the episodes and that I had to download them manually. So I went back to the Playstation Store to check and discovered that only episodes 2, 3 and 4 were available to me. Episode 5 was nowhere to be found on the store and Episode 1 was only available at the cost of a further £6.29, when it was supposed to be included with the Season Package which advertised itself as "5 Games, 1 price!".
Why then is it trying to charge me a further £6.29 for a game I have apparantely already paid for? Also, when is Episode 5 being released for PSN and will I have the same problem with it?
