    Also! Related to the temporary outage of DLC service for international PS3 users (as linked in the OP), we've recently resolved the situation and have next steps outline below:

    SCEE / international PS3 users can expect to see a title update on 5/2 next time they turn on RB3 which will be necessary for you to download to resume DLC service. Once you allow the title update we'll be able to roll out the last few weeks of DLC you've missed. Here is the current schedule:

    5/2 - Title Update and Week 229 (Evanescence) were made available.

    5/9 - Week 230 (Slayer), Week 231 (P!nk), Week 232 (Cinderella), Week 233 (Eddie Money, Train, Yellowcard), and the regularly scheduled Week 234 (Rage Against the Machine) should all be available, along with any missing RBN releases.


    Keep posted to the announcement thread linked in the OP and we'll update both that thread and future DLC announcements if the above plan changes in any way. Thanks for your patience!
