So I finally broke down and bought a years sub to Playstation +, but now I find myself in a bit of annoying situation of needing to manually accept each item in my cart for download. I was wondering if there was some download all items in cart button that I'm just not seeing or if you gotta download and install each free game/thing one at a time? I'm almost done at this point, but for future reference I was looking to see if there is some way to make this easier. Right now my method is to go through the list, add each item to cart then after checkout go down the list one at a time and download them. In the future I think I will just use the download/buy button on each item as I come to them in the store.

Maybe there is no easy way to do this, but how do other folks do it?

Yeah, it never used to be like this. Since they updated the store it's a pain in the ass downloading shit.

Does the new store not support background downloads? Haven't tried it yet.

It's only going to be an issue this one time anyway as you'll never have 12 new things to download at once. 2 maybe 3 things max.

I could have swore there was a download all button...perhaps thats just the video store.

It does.

The old store didn't have a download all option either... You had to start a download, set it to background, back up one screen and choose the next item on your list.

Ya that's what I ended up needing to do. When you are so used to Steam doing things so easily for you it's a bit of a shock trying out other services and seeing basic features you take for granted not being there.

It's been both ways for me. It seems like when I buy a lot of things, after a certain number they make me download everything one by one. But if I only have a few, I can just use "download all". It's kind of weird.

@crusader8463: I don't know if there's a limit, but if you Add to Cart all the items you want then go to checkout, there should be a download all option. I did it this week when I downloaded every bit of Tokyo Jungle DLC plus a few other random things at the same time.

@StarvingGamer: I did not see it. Must be some magic number that once you go over it's gone.

@crusader8463: Huh, weird. Well that's a bummer.

@StarvingGamer: I got them all going now anyway. As mentioned above, I'm sure I won't run into this problem in the future as it's only happening because it's my first time and there will be no big glut of free stuff coming down the pipe any time soon.
