Problem with DLC-codes for Griffy and Flutterby (EU-version)

#1Siegfried066Posted 2/10/2013 12:26:00 PM
Hello from Belgium (Europe), everyone

From a reliable online seller (from Italy), I got codes for these 2 DLC-familiars.

I tried to redeem them yesterday (I got my EU-version of the Wizard's Edition then, wanted to install the DLC before booting up the game).

But I keep getting an error that "the code has expired or has already been used" ?_?

The seller assured me the codes were brand-new, and I have no reason to doubt him.
He'll mail me new codes tomorrow.

Anyone else have a similar problem with these DLC-codes for a EU-version of Ni no Kuni?

FYI: after all these years on PSN, I only ever had a similar problem last year with the 2 "Dragon Ball: Raging Blast" games on PS3 and their Limited Edition-only DLC. Those games were also published by... Namco Bandai. Well, well, well...

worked fine for me(am in United Kingdom)

but i wish i could use the familiars in the game itself, as they just sit in my inventory as tickets

EDIT: first time i could be bothered to connect to psn

The codes might be fake, you can never trust anyone online!

I gave my griffy code to someone in Europe and it works for him even though i'm in Australia.

^ That would have been me and I assure you that @find no fan tar sea is saying the truth!
My Griffles is awesome! He's a BEAST! (Ok, an Ave :p).

I have given him a warm Home by Esther's Hug! :)

Considering the codes expire after 2 years (at least that's what it says on the card for the golden mite/drongo codes) it seems like you have been scammed by the seller...

Wait for the new codes, if they wont work as well your seller is probably not as trustworthy.

Ok, everyone, thanks for posting. Hope the new codes will work.

But I admit I'm a bit surprised the ONLY PS3 games I ever had this issue was, were PS3 games published by Namco Bandai :(
