    No movement on the missing permissions yet. I'm glad to see the team got the permissions mostly in line for the latest DLC, but I am still awaiting ETA of a permissions fix for the stuff that came out on April 1.

    BTW, minor point but one worth making just for clarity's sake: I see a lot of people using "cross-buy" casually, but I want to remind everybody that cross-buy is not a term that applies to this DLC in the strictest sense. PS3 DLC carries forward to PS4* as a courtesy to established players, but PS4 DLC does not carry back to PS3 -- only when the permissions flow both ways to both consoles is it a true cross-buy. Our functionality is only one way.

    This was noted in the FAQ early on because I did not want there to be any confusion. It looks like cross-buy if you are an established PS3 player, but it doesn't work like cross-buy if you are a new PS4 player.

    Just bringing it up so that everyone has the same expectations about how the DLC should behave.

    * when it works the way it should, anyway

    Indeed. I was considering buying another PS3 to just have in a spare room and have all the content for both.. but I'm starting to think as time goes on that if I get a second console that it'd be another PS4. PS3's are cheap, but why go backwards?

    DLC's

    I was able to get back some of the DLC's that I bought when I had a PS3 but not the police songs they are still wanting to charge me even though it was the first pack I bought.

    Just had a thought and would anybody know: I bought the Police pack when I had the first Rocksmith and then moved it over to Rocksmith 2014 on the PS3 and now that I have a PS4 Rocksmith 2014 is that why its not showing as Free or does that not matter?

    Was able to get all the Bob Dylan songs, Pat Benatar Hit me with your best shot, REM the one I love, Shiny happy people, Whats the frequency Kenneth, but missing Everybody hurts and the Otis Redding Sitting on the dock of the bay. But I will have another look tomorrow when I have more time.

    Everybody hurts is there but invisible on all platforms.. if you click the pack it will download. So American Woman and Unwell are likely there, but we can't see them to download them :/

    But then SCEE or Ubi still needs to fix it not everyone owns or wants the whole pack.

    By the way, do u also have under some packs the message "not available" ?

    Yup. The ballads and Shamrock pack, but you can access them by the PS4 store I believe.

    Interesting. I clicked now on the R.E.M. Pack in the web store. There it says I can not buy the pack and if I click there then on more informations it says: You can not buy this package because you allready own: Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.

    So @Dan is that correct or an issue that if you own 1 song of a pack that you then don't get access to the pack?
