God of War Collection Vita / PS3 Free on PSN (Plus Required, Semi-Alive Again)

How to get God of War Collection for FREE

 

 

  1. Head to the storefront. 
  2. Get the free full game trials (PS+ required) for God of War HD and God of War II HD on the PS3.
  3. Finally head to the God of War Collection page, and select the PS Vita version. It should be free and upon purchasing it, you'll get that and the PS3 version of God of War Collection for free. 

 

The above method is apparently dead, but a number of people have confirmed it still works if you got the PS3 trials and buy it via the PS Vita Store. 

 

Check your Vitas PS Store if you got in on the PS3 trials. It just poped up free for me!!!!

 

What if I already own God of War I/II digitally? 

 

If you already own both games, then you can simply purchase the Vita version. Sony confirmed a while back that the title supported Cross-Buy, so you can do this regardless of the glitch. This also applies to people who scored I/II from the other glitch, so those people got really lucky. 

 

 

About the file size

 

In this and the other topic, a few people have wondered about the games 15.5 GB file size. This total comes from the combined total of both the PS3 version and PS Vita version of God of War. For those wondering about the actual file sizes, you can find them below. 

 

It's just the combined total of the PS3 and Vita version. 

  • God of War Collection Vita - 3.1 GB
  • God of War I PS3 - 5.9 GB
  • God of War II PS3 - 6.5 GB
  • Total Size = 15.5 GB

 

Will this work on other games? 

 

No. This glitch only worked because of God of War being a Cross-Buy title and how the PSN handles full game trials. Simply put, buying the full game trial results in the PSN thinking you purchased the game, which for one reason or another, was enough to trick the PSN into thinking you owned the game and were entitled to the free Vita version.

I tried this and it shows $29.99. Are you sure the $0.00 you saw wasn't your existing wallet balance?

Apparently if you own PS3 versions you get the collection on Vita for free via cross buy.

If they already have the PS3 version digitally, then it doesn't matter because it's a cross-buy title.

Some reason the download button disappear on the main store page on the vita.

I went into my options > Download list> Download to still download it.

Not working over here. Both GoW 1 and 2 PS+ trials have been redeemed, but after clicking "Add to Cart" on the product page, it says I'm not eligible to purchase or download the content. I even clicked the itty-bitty shopping cart icon in the search result page (which lists as free), and I get the same error.

 

[EDIT] After a bit, I was able to get it, but through the mobile site on my phone. It showed as free, and I was able to add it to my cart, purchase (fo' free), and watch as my download queue on my Vita updated with both games.

 

Freaking. Awesome.

They might be in the process of fixing it, the 3.1MB shows as available to download on my Vita but not the individual games. Downloading to my PS3 though, will transfer by USB cable
