  • Great contests and whatnot, but having the CTL $15 promo start today is kind of harsh, considering many of us have already preordered one or more of these games *already*. You’re punishing people who preordered already by not including them, sending a message not to preorder in the future.

    • Anyone foolish enough to preorder months before release is very foolish and I have no sympathy for their reckless behavior. Especially if there isn’t an immediate incentive such as a dynamic theme ect. I will preorder spyro when the spend $100 get $15 back promo rolls around as it does at least twice a year.

    • @dragon_night I pre-ordered two games on the list (Spider-Man and Red Dead 2) when I had gift cards given to me. At the time, I knew I would want to buy those games and so I pre-ordered them while I was financially able. To say that was “foolish” is very harsh and uninformed. (I have used pre-orders as kind of a layaway plan in the past by putting a little money here and there down until I pay it off) I’m glad I pre-ordered when I did, but I also feel cheated out of the $15.

    • Can you cancel your pre order?

  • Wait a minute… What about those of us who pre-ordered the digital edition of that game have not receive any dynamic themes as promised? “It will come this summer”… So, the summer season is almost over… Where are they?

  • As someone who has already digitally pre-ordered Spyro and Spider-Man I will feel incredibly burned if this doesn’t retroactively work for us :/

  • Yeah this is very punishing to those who preordered these games already

  • I wholeheartedly agree with the commenters above. Why don’t you reward those of us who have already demonstrated our faith in PlayStation and Insomniac? Make the preorders retroactively count towards the CTL promotion.

  • For those burned… Don’t you know greatness comes to those who wait? Yeah I might jump on this $15 credit deal. But buying 2 games is a bit extreme. Have Destiny 2 to finish and Killing Floor Incursion. Better yet is to wait for the next flash sale. I always find great price drops around the holidays. Boy I really miss the 20% off PSN coupons.

  • Are the rewards and the contest US only? Because it won’t let me download the theme or enter the contest.

  • This is a horrible promotion, since this game comes out in a couple days most people pre-ordered it a long time ago. Most of these games were probably already pre-ordered. It should go back and take into account purchasing/pre-ordering at any point they were made available to do so.

  • I can’t access the page from Turkey, can you make it global? I’d like to get that Theme.

  • Where is this supposed Spider-Man theme? Would it kill you to put a link to it in the blog post?

  • Regarding the $15 credit, I’m very displeased with the fact that you have to purchase a game between 9/4 through 11/6.

    Can I please contact someone to make this work retroactively? If not, that is really low.
    After all, I used Sony Rewards to pay for those games and I use your credit card.

    A Bummed Out Fan

    • I contacted them via chat earlier today and they say I’m burned as hell because the promotion have started today. It’s sucks because I’ve pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption Ultimate for $100 just YESTERDAY… less than 24h before this damn promotion!

  • I just pre-ordered Spider-Man past this weekend and Red Dead Redemption last month, real bummer if we don’t get this promotion, especially when it’s the loyal customers that pre-order early.

  • I would’ve considered Dragon Quest 11 to be the first of the fall blockbusters…

  • Would it kill to make this a Global promotion? Sheesh, there are people in other countries, too.

    • Supposedly there are different arms in different regions that put them together but yeah it stinks when watching everyone else get in on something that should be for every owner/user

  • Better prices come to those who wait. If you preordered early then all you can really do is kick yourself.

  • I go to the countdown to greatness website but none of the links on the page works and it freezes up when I try to mess with it much (tried on Safari and Chrome). Also really wish this $15 credit deal was retroactive as I preordered Spider-Man and RDR2 a month ago.

  • I’ve been waiting on this game for 2 years! Well, 2 years in actuality, but in a cosmic sense I’ve been waiting for it my entire life! And it’s finally here! As the self-proclaimed biggest Spider-Man fan in the world, MY BODY IS READY!!!!!! Be Greater everyone, and I’ll see you in the multiverse!

  • I don’t know how to get the theme

  • I hope this game is as good as God of War and better than Batman Arkham games!

  • Grabbed the Spider-Man theme, thanks! I can’t wait to get my hands on that Spider-Man PS4, Friday can’t come soon enough.

  • I bought (preorder) two Games Yesterday and didnt get the 15 dollars credit, does anyone know why?

  • It’s a bit unfair that people in the UK and the rest of Europe can’t access these giveaways and freebies. Yes, it might only be a theme, but still!

  • yeah..once again America only..

  • Feels wrong bringing this $15 credit in so late in the game. We early pre-order types I think should see massive benefits up front as soon as the gates open. Encourage early adoption / early pre-ordering not this last minute opportunity. This marketing only comes off as greedy what with trying to push those on the fence with the price vs. trusting in the game and game developers. Not a precedent I like out of Sony. I wish they were the company that they were just before the release of the PS4. Customer-centric.

  • it does not let me download the theme :/
