    I came across this two days ago when Minecraft PS Vita Edition came out in the US. I had purchased the bundle from my PS3 and downloaded both the Vita and PS3 versions onto my PS3. I used the QCMA trick to attempt to copy Minecraft to my PS Vita (3.18). But everytime I tried to copy it to my vita, I kept getting error c2-12383-7, which is a very esoteric error (Sony claims that the error doesn’t exist). I then used the proxy trick with Charles proxy to load up the PSN Store on my Vita. It worked, but I noticed that there wasn’t a demo for Minecraft (I went looking for it first, since I knew I could download my purchase from the downloads list). Minecraft, the actual game, was listed for “Free”, which was strange, since it should have said ” Purchased”. I clicked on it and it begun to download. It replaced the Minecraft on my downloads list with this one, moving it up the list, but it was still the full version. I seriously thought I had the trial, but I told many of my friends and they were surprised to see this happen when they went to download the full game for free. Strangest experience I’ve had on the PSN.

    Celui qui a trouvé le glitch se nomme PlayBoxi, il nous l’a dit sur ce topic Minecraft du forum PlayStation Vita sur :
    J’ai essayé avec un ami qui a un compte UK et non ça ne marche pas pour lui, uniquement pour les comptes EU. :p
    Ensuite l’info a été relayé par le topic crée par Umix2t :

    One who found the glitch is called PlayBoxi he told us about this topic Minecraft PlayStation Vita Forum -1 to 0-minecraft.htm # message_899734
    I tried with a friend who has a UK account and no it does not work for him, only for EU accounts. : p

    Can’t get it to work…

  11. Casavult says:

    I first saw this glitch using the HUKD (Hot UK Deals) app on my phone. I already had it on PS4 but thought why not get it on my Vita and PS3 if it’s free?


    • Casavult says:

      I’m going to wait a while (because the game might get revoked as it has done before for me when the PSN store was glitched a few years ago I think it was and I got a free game) and if it stays in my download list then I’m going to sell my physical copy for the PS4 and get the £3.69 digital PS4 upgrade.


      • NotFirstTime says:

        I have also received one complete free game accidentally through PSN PC store due to some strange glitch. But I won’t be trying to take advantage of Minecraft one.

    I just got the game for free! I already had the demo for a while, and I was just browsing when I came across the full game for free! Anyway, I then checked the Internet to see if it was an offer or something which ended up leading me here, thanks Sony x

  19. Peter says:

    Hi, can anyone borrow me any account which has minecraft downloaded? I would really like to own minecraft since i have no games for ps vita, only got to buy it… And I find this community very good so if someone can borrow your account, pls text me via email:


  21. shaz says:

    I got it free on PS3, PS4 and PS vita lol even though I already had the disc versions, at least it made my life easier! Don’t like changing discs as I love playing GTAV etc! It showed up as a “PSN Game” instead of calling it a full game lol it still works on my UK account 🙂 gotta love Europe ha

  22. brentt says:
