PS3 COD Elite members got access to new download DLC drops today but it looks like a fair amount of gamers are having issues getting the maps that have paid for COD Elite. It looks to be a problem with Sony PS3
Mark Rubin stated regarding those who having issues with today’s drop, “PS3 Elite Users that are having DLC issues. I’m looking for more info. If you are having the issue can you go to Account Management -> Transaction Management -> Services List and see if you see your Elite subscription there. I’m having the issue on my PS3 here and it seems that Sony has lost my subscription. Want to see if that’s the same thing with everyone else.”
What to do?
A blog 4 Modern Warfare 3 member posted advice on how YOU can fix it! This comes from Brian Tidey
i worked it out last night, you have to update the system first then go back in to ps store search for july dlc and then first find the key and download that then find July drop EN as they appear to be country specific. once down loaded then you have to go to ps home and install them. i did this late last night and every map now works.

I think I just found out whats going on Sony hasn’t put Vortex, U-Turn, Intersection and Arctic Recon on the “IN-GAME” STORE only on the STORE that can be accessed via the XMB Menu. Go to the STORE search for “Elite July Drops” click on “Elite July Drops” then click “Get Now” it should say “Purchase Successful” go back and then in the column look for your language(Product Key) e.g “Elite July Drops EN” click it, click “Download” and click “Download All” and that should let you play your maps.If it worked share this with every forum relating to this problem please.

The error you might see is “ps3 lost dlc for mw3″ if this is the case please post additional feedback in the comment box below to help fix this problem and help get you it back. Post your PSN user name and other info.
Vortex and U-Turn weigh in at 149MB, as they are bundled together. Intersection and Arctic Recon will run you back 83MB and 186MB in HDD memory, respectively.
The new drops aren’t accompanied with a new patch, which is normally needed in order to active the DLC, since title update 17 added the compatibility.
