Hi there,

When I try to query the API I get a 500 internal server error. This happens only when requesting games with the platforms parameter set to PS3...

http://api.giantbomb.com/games/?api_key={my_api_key}&platforms=PS3&format=json

That is the URL I'm using and it just outputs 500 internal server error. Any idea?

Thanks,

Shad

You need to use the id of PS3 instead of the name. PS3's id is 88. You can find this by making an API call or searching for ps3 and going to the page:

http://www.giantbomb.com/playstation-network-ps3/60-88/ <-- the prefix 60- is used to indicate a platform, and 88 is the id.
