            @Dohdohbird I am have the same problem... Transferring from PS3 with CE to PS4, all collector's content was also supposed to transfer and be available??? Don't know what to do to fix it either

          Recently I pre-ordered Elder Scrolls Online with the Imperial Edition, and when playing it, I found out that you can still get the DLC in the Crown Store for a bit more... Why don't you do this for the Special Edition for those who didn't get the game before the release?
          • LDHalcrow1215on April 23 2015, 7:36pmReplyFlag
            Rockstar Games, please make the digital content purchasable on last gen consoles now (eg. Xbox 360, PS3), it's very rare to find now.

                  How do i go about getting the 'spaecial edition collectors pack' dlc for the ps3 ? Id like to be able to get the hotknife car bullop shotgun and all other items in this special pack, but what is the process? how do i go about achiving this?

                    @sy-steelie007 The only two legit ways to get the content on last gen at the moment is to buy a collectors edition or buy a collectors edition code card off of ebay,amazon etc.hope this helps

                        Phew. I was afraid I was the only one having the issue of not being able to access the guns in story mode and also the bike and car from the garage like you should be able to with the CE. It keeps charging me for the Khamelion and the Hotknife in Online mode too. Ironically, I can purchase the hammer in story mode, but I just want to grab the bullpup and .50!! Thought the update today would fix this but, again, just another mystery update...
                        • KUCOAXROon December 17 2014, 10:55pmReplyFlag
                          @SenorMatador Yeah, I have the CE too and the garage in single player for all the characters are not for free and the weapons I have to paid.

                        Nice. I call you out about the CE and you guys delete my post. Again, the advertising stated we would get the CE freebies if we upgraded. Well where are they?

                          My collectors edition dlc is not available in story mode.. No bullpup shotgun none of my garages.. How can I get my dlc that I have on 360?? Do any of you guys have the collectors edition items and have they transferred over? I think I had it yesterday but not 100% positive but I believe when playing the campaign the game alerted me to being able to do the stunt plane trials but today after the latest update I cant find any of the dlc items.

                            @Test_the_God I have the same problem. None of my collector's edition content seemed to transfer over to the new version after I moved my GTA Online character over. :-(

                            @Test_the_God i got the notification on my online character that my collectors edition stuff transferred but in game none of my weapons or cars are unlocked, wish rockstar would fix this SOON.

                            @Test_the_God Same problem here. The weapons are visible, but not available. I haven't seen single word from rockstar on this. In all the forms and my ticket submission. No cars/garages, guns not accessible, discounts and health bonus don't seem to be there and the special bonus weapons for returning players also are not available. Expect the rail gun, in the single player shooting range only. My free hair cuts are there.

                            @Test_the_God R* says we have to download the SE content on the ps4
                            "All special collectors edition content for ps3 must be re-downloaded for ps4 and be re-unlocked/purchased in game."

                            @DrKevorkian614 That's the response I gave them. They can't assume all returning players will keep their PS3/360 or the old copy of the game. I traded in my ps3 and GTA 5 copy to get the ps4

                            @josue_1936 No eres el único con éste problema, yo compré la edición de de colección (PS3), la que incluía armas, ropa, tatuajes, cortes de cabello, carga de habilidad especial y por supuesto los 3 vehículos exclusivos además de los garages gratis, pero en la versión de PS4 las cosas como las armas y por supuesto los vehículos y los garages gratis ya no están, tenemos que comprar estos últimos, no hay una respuesta y he enviado mi problema a Rockstars.
