Although Sony is unable to commit to a timeframe in resolving ongoing issues with downloading paid content from the PlayStation Network, moderator comments suggest a fix is expected before the weekly PlayStation Store update.

On the PlayStation Forum thread tracking the error, affected community members expressed concern that more users might be inconvenienced when making purchases in this week’s PS Store update, and requested Sony make an official announcement of the error on the European PlayStation Blog.

“If this issue continues and is going to affect the Store update then it will of course be mentioned,” moderator SuperFast Zombie replied.

“However we are hopeful that it will be resolved before then.”

The most recent update from Sony regarding the matter is a reaffirmation that engineers are working on the error, which leaves affected users with no way to download purchased games and DLC, including content activated by promotional codes.

The problem was first noticed in the wake of a maintenance window which ended on Friday.
