The Day 1 Digital
version of Resident Evil 6
available through the PlayStation Network has a bug that makes the game unplayable. A day-one patch of the digitally distributed copy stops the game from loading, but there is a temporary workaround.
"The temporary fix to ensure people can enjoy RE6 today as intended is to ask those people to un-install the game (only if they originally saw an error message) and re-install the game," publisher Capcom informed IGN
. "This time they won't be prompted to download the patch and the game will load."
Capcom also mentions there is a slight side effect to the fix: "Please note however, these people won't be able to play against disc owners on a temporary basis. We are working with SCEE (Sony) to fix this issue and a patch is imminent to fix the issue. Please note that those people who downloaded the game from the PSN store originally won't be able to access RE.net at this time, but this will be fixed by the imminent patch."
This issue only potentially affects those who purchased the game through PSN. Disc-based copies of Resident Evil 6
already have 99 problems
, but this bug ain't one of them.
