2. I can’t use the downloadable content that I purchased for the PS3 version.

It’s possible that you did not complete the download and installation process after purchasing the content.

Check the Parts List from the Parts Select screen under Download Content.

If it says “PURCHASED” next to any content, this means that after purchasing it, you didn’t  complete the download and installation of the data.

To download and install the content, select that content to go to the Download List screen. Select the content again from this screen.

*Be sure not to press the “Close” button at this point, as the download and installation has not been completed yet.

Once the download is completed, the data will automatically install.

After the installation completes, press the Return button to go back to the Download List. Press the Return button one more time to go the Parts List, where DOWNLOADED should appear for the assembly part you have purchased.

Once you confirm that DOWNLOADED appears next to the purchased item, the downloadable content will be ready to use in Assembly Mode when customizing your robot.
