Hello,

I live in the UK, have a PS3 and have waited all day for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light to be released. I keep switching the system on and off, but the PlayStation Store has no such game! All it has is the Weapons Trailer. Is the UK release date delayed, because I have heard of other PS3 users playing it.

Thank You :)

When they launched LCGoL on the 360 they advertised online play, which was rather sneaky. It looks like they are doing the same for the PS3 release. If online play is not included tomorrow then someone deserves a harsh talking to. Most people browsing the PS Store do not frequent these forums and know all the details.

Forgive the question, but anyone know if the Online version for PS3 out at the same time in Spain?
If not exactly the same, or be different.
It's a stupid question, so sorry .. but wanted to know.

We have already been told the PS3 and PC versions will not have online play till later. Not even the Xbox 360 version is getting the online mode today, all versions will eventually get it. You can still play local co-op if you can manage to round up a second player.

Indeed & that is the point, read my previous post again. WE know this, but the description in the advertising (for both PS3 & 360) tells a different tale. Most people browsing the store will read the descriptions, buy the game & then find that online play is not available. Remember that the vast majority of these people will not be visiting TR related forums & know about the indefinite delay for online support. Including & pushing this online aspect as a major selling point for the game is just plain wrong.

False advertising is legit if a corporation does it.

My PS Store still hasn't got it. Is it just my system? When will it become available?

The store should update within the next couple of hours.

I for one will be downloading the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow demo & God of War: Ghost of Sparta PSP demo :)

I am going to leave LCGoL for a few weeks & see how it goes.
The control setup on PS3 does not suit me, but I may get the 360 version once the online support has been added. However, I will need to upgrade my 20GB HDD or get a second USB stick.

I have a PS3 and an xBox, I bought it on the PS3 where online play IS FREE.
I dont have xbox live, or PS+, I never will.

Do you download the TRIAL version first, and then the full version because the full version is only a 5 second download! I have been downloading the TRIAL version for about 4 hours and it is only 43%. Is this the normal duration of the download?

I wouldn't say its normal but I'm in the same boat, mine hasn't been 4 hours yet, granted but I'm sure it's going to be a while!

Im downloading the TRIAL as we speak and its taking ages.

i bought the game full versin upgrade but it took 2 secs and that was it so that was an upgrade so thats y im doing the TRIAL.

How come it says TRIAL then? I want the full version, but that's only a 5 sec. download and then after that I can't find it on my PS3, like Hoodedclaw's problem. Surely the TRIAL shouldn't take this long!.... Nearly 5 hours and nearly 50%. Any way to speed it up??

im in same position ( as i said) because the download took 2 secs and thats surly not a game but it said FULL GAME UPGRADE and i was so confused looking 4 it and now im downloading it its taking ages but if we download the trial it might give us the choice 2 get the full version ?

So just to clear things a bit for me did both of you download the full update thing off the store first before downloading the trial?

Hoodedclaw
29th Sep 2010, 20:33
I did .................. is that bad ?

I have no idea, though I know I did it so your not alone on that!

But maybe in some weird technical way if you download the full update thingy then download the trial it will take longer... for whatever the technical reason?:scratch:

at least im not a loner lol.

29th Sep 2010, 20:54
Nope not a loner.:D

But why I'm odd is cause I already had the Trial downloaded. But me being me and having the habits I do, deleted it before I downloaded the full game (I tend to do this before I go and buy a game!).

But the first time only took about 30-40 mins. So thats what makes me think, maybe downloading the full game makes the trial download slower?

29th Sep 2010, 21:13
Maybe... ah, I really wish I downloaded them the other way round now! :(

I'm just over halfway completed, so looks like I'm gonna have to wait another 5 hours... :(

it was taking so long that i got tired last night, so i set my ps3 2 turn of the download when its finished, and i woke up this morning and its downloaded but i dont get 2 play it until 3pm cause im so busy :rolleyes:

at least i have it :D

@Hoodedclaw - I'm in the same position! I put turn off when download complete and left it overnight when it was about 70%. My Dad said it was turned off by the time he went to bed, so I don't think it completed at 100% - I think it gets to like 80% and then completes!
Anyways, it was all done by this morning, but I had to go to school :(. Finally, I got to play it at 4 o'clock and I really like it!! We waited long enough!! I'm on Spider Tomb :)

Well I downloaded it about 1 am this morning had a quick 5 minute go but not been on it since...

Considering Co-op seemed a buggy (local) and the lack of no trophies... granted I'm not bothered about there not being trophies as I generally am not bothered, but I suppose I should get the choice at least:rolleyes:

Something to which all PS3 games have to have now-a-days... yet another failure... and I've often wondered why the TR games did fall out of popularity.

But enough of my rant as I doubt I'll be on it today or tomorrow cause I've got Dead Rising to finish off.

Is there online on ps3 because it shows u an online leaderboard?

Can I ask how bad the making of the game actually was?:scratch: I'm not ranting, I'm perfectly calm but according to my PS3 there is no such thing really, in 'game data utility' no guardian of light, in 'saved data' no guardian of light and in 'trophies' there's no guardian of light. It keeps my save granted within the game though it just doesn't appear so i cant delete it.

So how bad can the game be that it suffers that much of a technical problem? Never seen that before. So basically I can't get rid of the game completely, only the Trial... which would seem pointless cause I've deleted it twice now.

Don't suppose anyone is willing to help an 18 year old out?:lol:
