can't access Cerberus Network on downloadable PS3 version

#1 Posted by normalpants (166 posts) -

I just finished downloading and installing the PSN download version of Mass Effect 2 and am unable to access the interactive comic, which I assume is within the Cerberus Network.  I get New Game and Extras as options, and it says I am connected to the EA servers, but starting a new game puts me smack dab at the beginning of Mass Effect 2.  How do I get access to my Cerberus stuff on the PSN download version?

Pretty sure you have to download Cerberus network from PSN first.

Hm.. in that case I have no idea.. check the Extra section and see if it's there in the list.

it's not in the extas section-- when I select downloadable content it quits the game and takes me to the PSN store

You sure you didn't just quit out of the game too soon? The comic doesn't start playing until after the opening but before the Lazarus Project montage.

Have you registered an EA account? I bought a hard copy, but I still needed to set that crap up in order for the 12 digit code to do its thing.

i am going to be one angry motherfucker if the full version PS3 download doesn't include the free DLC from Cerberus and Kasumi and Shadow Broker.  Can anyone reassure me so I don't punch a kitten?

@dudeglove: 
 
I used my existing EA account within the login page on the main Mass Effect 2 login and I was never prompted to enter a code.  It does not come with a code. It says I am online, but there is no news feed or options to browse DLC like in the Xbox version.  Does this stuff not appear if you're starting a fresh game on a fresh new copy? Maybe it will pop in once I get a save file going?

 @normalpants:
The PS3 version doesn't have a "Cerberus Network" per se -- just an Add-On pack. Again, you sure you didn't just quit the game too soon? If you registered/logged in with your EA account and downloaded the Add-On pack, you're good to go. Start a New Game and after the opening the comic will start playing.
