PS3 version of Section 8 takes user to Live Marketplace

Sunday, 23rd May 2010 09:12 GMT By Joe Anderson


PlayStation 3 owners trying to connect to PSN in first-person shooter Section 8 are getting a surprise that they perhaps didn’t expect: the chance to visit Xbox Live Marketplace.

As you can see from the above screen, the bizarre error is telling users, “Failed to connect because the host is using downloadable content that you do not have.”

The next step for Microsoft? Paying for exclusive downloadable content is one thing, but paying developers to connect to Live on a PS3 game? Surely that’s taking competition to extremes.

Section 8 was released for PS3 a few months ago in the US and last month in the UK.

Thanks, AGB.

    I bought this game for $14.99 when it went on sale, I’ve never seen that screen or had an issues playing online.

    Edit: yep just tested it, online works perfect.

    For gods sake people, DON’T BUY THIS GAME! Games are mostly subjective, different people like different things so I don’t usually make game suggestions but seriously only the most depraved of masochists could ever find the smallest bit of enjoyment in this game. It had potential, I mean the art style is fucking badass, and hey no one ever went wrong with armored space marines right? except they did, they bent that armored space marine over and they fucked him in the ass with the most spectacularly boring plot in existence. Gameplay so bland and generic that by the time you finish the game and look up at the clock you will know, this isn’t a game, this isn’t some little plastic disc that sits there meekly spinning in your console, this is a hole in the fabric of time, for while while you’ve spent the last six months slogging slowly through an empty featureless waste, only four hours will have passed for the rest of us here on earth.

    So yeah, don’t buy this game.
