‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (26th November 2009)

Hello, hello.

I’ve left writing this update to the very, very, very last minute this week, so for fear of getting my hands slapped by Jem, I’m going to keep this brief.

We have content on the store this week, you may love it, you may not – I will always love you all though, no matter how much you abuse me, that’s commitment right there :)

I’ll try and monitor comments as best I can this week, but forgive me if there is a delay in my responses.

Have a good week all!

Any flow trophies?


There are demos of the Fallout 3 DLC? Or is it ment to be under Add Ons?

Also, do you know if we will get Tekken 6 on PSP?


wasen’t a bayoneta demo comming this week? or was it next week?

What I mean, is Tekken 6 on PSP on PSN…

FallingStickman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:16 pm   6

Wow, slim pickings. Again. Plus, another awesome, awesome, awesome PSOne game. Good work.

TheKillerSnowman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:16 pm   7

this week to :( never a good update :(

xKillerMonkeyx 26 November, 2009 @ 2:17 pm   8

Coolio, also will you be adding videos that get updated to PS Store as it was said like 50 per week.

steven_dutch 26 November, 2009 @ 2:17 pm   9

Cool update Mike.
One question.
Will Catan get a release in Europe?


And does anyone know when AadHoc Party is coming? It was advertised but it never came

AcidCrashX 26 November, 2009 @ 2:17 pm   11

awesome breath of fire 3 :D

thanks for the update Mikeface, now get back to work before Jem gets the whip out!

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:40 pm    

    Jem has no control over me (different teams you see) it’s just as I contribute to the blog I should be getting my updates to him much quicker.

    He ain’t no boss of me ;)

Suzzopher 26 November, 2009 @ 2:17 pm   12

No Tekken 6 on PSP? No Vagrant Story? What happened to Final Fantasy VIII is due very soon? I sold the discs thinking it wouldn’t be long.

halljames 26 November, 2009 @ 2:17 pm   13

Cool, I think I shall get Lego Indy, and you never know, maybe soon I can get a working copy of Assassins Creed Bloodlines, just waiting for a fix.


Cheers mike…. hey is that a completely new Last guardian trailer? i’ll download if so…


Gonna sound like a broken record but really waiting for that FF VIII update. Sure you can’t lift a little of that veil?

Suzzopher 26 November, 2009 @ 2:19 pm   16

Being a PSP Go customer is actually not what I was hoping it would be. I get games later than retail and more expensive. Or sometimes not at all.

What are SCEE doing about getting games on the store of actual worth?

RadioactiveMouse 26 November, 2009 @ 2:19 pm   17

Most likely a lull week after the huge updates of recent weeks. I’m hoping that more information on release windows for games such as PixelJunk Shooter and Hustle Kings is forthcoming sometime soon. :)

I know you don’t deal with Video Store Mike but are we getting the same type of post you do on the video side of the store from someone this week? ;) (it’s a bit hazy on how it works)

HiddenAway 26 November, 2009 @ 2:20 pm   18

Tekken 6 is out in Europe on 11th December. It won’t be until then at least.

Just announced…

Amherst_Wind_4 26 November, 2009 @ 2:20 pm   19

Yay Borderlands DLC!

Mike, I don’t suppose you know what I should do with a glitched Gravity Crash? Theres a trophy for “Unlock any secret level” but any time I try campaign mode all the secret levels are already unlocked. Even when I meet the requirements to unlock a secret level, no trophy… I tried to start the campaign over with new game but the secret levels are still already unlocked even if I do that. :(

    Stewart Gilray 26 November, 2009 @ 2:51 pm    

    I’ll reply to this one. We are aware of the issue and are looking into it. However all is not lost, you can easily get this trophy if you delete your save game and try again.

    Not the best solution, but one that does work.

    This is caused by the 1001101 Trophy SOMETIMES being collected early. But as I said, you can get it, just not without deleting your save game.

Woo no more beatings for me, the Ultimate alliance DLC finally arrives. Mike does that include the Juggernaut character download as well or is that for another week?

Thx for the heads up.

TheKillerSnowman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:21 pm   21

where are the good ps 1 games like Alien – Resurrection ? the games there are now in the store to ps1 are for kids from 3-8 years old

betahoven 26 November, 2009 @ 2:22 pm   22

Good old Disney, treating us to another one of their PS1 “classics”.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:41 pm    

    Some people, like a large number of consumers with a family, actually enjoy these games – there are lots of different types of consumer who use the store you know.

lulufeena 26 November, 2009 @ 2:22 pm   23

update on ff8 please mike, im losing hope

VitalogyPJ 26 November, 2009 @ 2:23 pm   24

Sorry Mike, not getting props today, this update is very very poor LOL

Any news about new animated themes and premium avatars?

NomadicWulf 26 November, 2009 @ 2:24 pm   25

What, the Fallout 3 DLC is priced the way it’s supposed to be now? Too bad for all the people who bought it when it was more expensive -_- Like myself.. *sigh* Ah well…

Nothing special this week.

Mike! We love you to!!!!!!111!!!!11!!!!!SHIFT1!!!!


Borderlands DLC is nice ;-)
But when is Military Madness coming out in EU?

jimmy-google 26 November, 2009 @ 2:24 pm   28

Glad to see Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures for PSP but do you know when the sequel will be on the store (and F1 2009). Thanks. Loving the regular amount of psp games on the store.

get2sammyb 26 November, 2009 @ 2:24 pm   29

Cheers for the heads up Mike. Nothing really takes my fancy this week but then, I’m busy with my import of God Of War Collection and still enjoying Gravity Crash.

Thanks for the update! :)


Nothing this week for me but hey the movie store is bleeding me dry anyways xD

any update for VIII and the game that can not be mentioned on here ends with story

ShinMegami 26 November, 2009 @ 2:25 pm   31

oh another PS1 classic: lilo and stitch… yeah…that sucks. how come almost only disney games come out as classic? Special deal between sony and disney??? something smells fishy…

breath of fire is cool.

whoismilan 26 November, 2009 @ 2:27 pm   32

I’m still busy with Disgaea from last week, I like that game so much more than what I thought I would!

I like that we got the Uncharted motion comic, and anything about The Last Guardian is awesome! :)

ninja_tom 26 November, 2009 @ 2:28 pm   33

Also Mike, not sure if it was intended or not but good on you for changing the labelling of the PSOne games (at least for a week like this)!!

No longer are they billed as “PSOne Classics”, just “PSone (emulated for PS3 and PSP)” a lot more accurate for a game of Lilo and Stitch: Trouble in Paradise’s calibre…

Pigoldino91 26 November, 2009 @ 2:28 pm   34

Lilo e Stich??what??…,where is final fantasy VIII?? please update final fantasy VIII.

gators625 26 November, 2009 @ 2:28 pm   35

Again I ask: Where is PES 2010 for PSPgo? Seriously, the lack of information on this is truly frustrating. When can us PSPgo owners finally play Pro Evo?


I think this update is really good. Borderlands DLC :D (Altho i must resist still playing main game as i havn’t even had it a week)

Plenty of appealing PSP Content again :D

Pat yourself on the back Mike as i can’t do it from here :p

*sends a telepathic message hunt down Capcom and make them give you Resident Evil 1 2 or 3 for release on our store*

Gedwardes 26 November, 2009 @ 2:28 pm   37

Where abouts is F1 2009 then, already a week after the shop version…


On codemaster forums it says: “So here are the confirmed Skirmish DLC pack release dates for both SCEE and SCEA.
SCEE – 26th Nov
SCEA – 3rd Dec”


Solid_Snake1987 26 November, 2009 @ 2:29 pm   39

It’s not a bad update Mike. I’m still happy playing Disagea on PSP from last week and with my birthday on the Sunday just past I’ve still got Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 to play. Interested in the Madden game after reading it on the US Blog. Nice amount of PSP stuff this week.

Already got those complaining about the Disney Classics! :D



What about the others Breath of Fire games for the psp? are those on the PSN? Breath of Fire 4??


Nice update once again, Kebster!

Chimpanzee 26 November, 2009 @ 2:29 pm   42

Two questions: When is Peggle coming and when in the Flow trophy patch coming?

Chimpanzee 26 November, 2009 @ 2:30 pm   43

Actually, three questions: …when will video store content be added? Will that be Thursdays too?

” I will always love you all though, no matter how much you abuse me, that’s commitment right there”


Your doing a damn fine job seargent HOAH. Any news on an Avatar demo, the film might shape up to be a good one.

On a side note could you ask Rockstar if they would release GTA:San Andreas on the PS3.

hobojoe1989 26 November, 2009 @ 2:30 pm   45

Mike, your resilience to verbal abuse is admirable. Just thought I’d congratulate you on that. It would be nice to see some more (notable) ps1 classics (final fantasy VIII, or even IX) but to be honest I’m absolutely chuffed that the new borderlands content’s finally up; know how I’ll be spending tomorrow…

sowasred2012 26 November, 2009 @ 2:30 pm   46

Sweet! Uncharted motion comic is up, looking forward to watching that bad boy.

I had a question about it though, I remember when it was announced Naughty Dog were saying something about some bonus content or something that came with it, whether it applies to Uncharted 2 I’m not sure – but do you know what I’m talking about and what it is? Or am I making stuff up?


Decent enough update, I’ll be picking up a few of the videos and the Uncharted 2 Motion Comic. I’m still loving Critter Crunch at the moment though, and I still need to get Gravity Crash from Tuesday as well.

Borderlands is an Xmas present so no doubt I’ll be picking up the DLC for that at some point too – especially given that they are using the new and improved exchange rate policy!!! :)

Two questions:

1) Am I right in assuming the free Uncharted 2 map and game mode pack will be an in-game patch rather than a store download given that everyone is getting it?

2) Will the EyePet Lucky Dip packs be available and free indefinitely? I know sometimes these things are limited offers or only available for a limited time. My Nephews and Niece are getting EyePet for Xmas so I want to check that I don’t need to download them in advance!

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:44 pm    

    1) I believe that is the case.
    2) As far as I know yes they are not for a limited time.


Nope, nothing that interests me this week at all.

Good excuse for me to not spend any more cash on PSN stuff for once :D

killah_fury 26 November, 2009 @ 2:31 pm   49

any news on the fl0w trophy patch please?


Hey Mike.

Thanks again for the update this week.

I think I’m right in saying that Braid was released a couple of weeks ago on the US PlayStation Store. Just wondering if you know when we might be getting it?

I understand that this may not be an SCEE issue etc, that’s fine..I’m not complaining. =P Just curious as to when we might be able to expect it.

Thanks again.

designheadache 26 November, 2009 @ 2:32 pm   51

Good to see the borderlands DLC will be available that makes me a happy bunny, although i cant seem to find any information on when the Brutal legend DLC is going to be released, which makes me a sad panda.

Currently i am one confused pandunny, heres hoping you can help with my situation :-)


I guess it’s just videos (The Last Guardian and DC Universe) and themes (minus the Dead Space one) for me this week.

How about the special offers. I noticed the Killzone map pack and the Last Guy yesterday on the US blog, i was hoping for those in the EU.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:45 pm    

    Our Special Offers are not in collusion with the US for the most part, so you can expect to see different offerings from our store.

Smegzilla 26 November, 2009 @ 2:36 pm   54

Nothing for me thanks. :D

Anyone have any info on the flOw patch? Surely it doesn’t need much localisation?


Oh I thought the PSP LBP Demo was due this week. Doesn’t matter.

Great post Mike.

koroshiya_1 26 November, 2009 @ 2:37 pm   56

What’s happened to the LittleBigPlanet ezio auditore costume?
Weren’t we meant to get it on Tuesday(24th)? When it didn’t show I assumed we would get it with the store update but there’s no mention of it.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:46 pm    

    Unfortunately it is still to be confirmed what is happening with this content, sorry :(

SirIGetLaidNot 26 November, 2009 @ 2:37 pm   57

Yay Madden.. Gonna get it asap..I hope theres some singleplayer like nhl 3on3

TheKillerSnowman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:38 pm   58

gravity crash lol :P not a good game the game is LOL

StitchRFC 26 November, 2009 @ 2:38 pm   59

Are we always going to be a week behind with Rock Band DLC? We should be getting Tom Petty (and some other songs) this week but we’re only getting last weeks AFI. I was hoping to buy the Nirvana pack which should be coming out on 3rd December and don’t want to be disappointed by being made to wait until the week after.

Nice! Thanks for the demos.

halljames 26 November, 2009 @ 2:38 pm   61

jimmy-google, I was actualy waiting for the second lego indy until I found out its just the same as the DS version, so I am very glad they have put the first one up cos I have missed playing it since I got my GO.


Look….Power Stone Collection….that’s all I needed to be happy this week.

Gravity Crash on tuesday was a great edition and having Power Stone Collection at a decent price is great.


BTW, I had to LOL at the PSOne selection given the big PSOne Classic update the US Store had on Tuesday! Your heart must sink when you see the PSOne update lineup because you must know you’ll get stick for it!

Not that it bothers me, I don’t have a PSP and I use my PS3 to play, um well, PS3 games… I bet you wish all SCEE-land publishers were as forthcoming as whoever publishes those Disney games though!!!

Out of interest (and this isn’t a dig) wasn’t there any first party titles in the PS1 era? Or any SCEE published PS1 titles? Surely they must be easy to make available? Or don’t SCEE believe PS1 emulation is a profitable venture?

This update is not as good as last one, and I would like to add to the plethora of voices requesting more info on FF8 and other complaints associated with it.


Lilo and Stitch: Trouble in Paradise /facepalm.

Eye Of Indra part 2 costs money? /facepalm.

TheKillerSnowman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:40 pm   66

DJ Hero game pack was relest today so where is it????????????????????????????

Pamperdamps 26 November, 2009 @ 2:40 pm   67

When do we hear what new films are up this week?

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 2:41 pm   68

Sorry Not good enough “i see no let up till xmas” however it SLIP but…

Lill-Frick 26 November, 2009 @ 2:42 pm   69


When do we get the following psp games ?

Mortal Kombat unchained
death jr
final fantasy crisis core
final fantasy dissidia



yeah,, i wanna know about the Ezio costume too..

Carnivius_Prime 26 November, 2009 @ 2:43 pm   71

I’ll take the Eyepet freebie and the Uncharted vids. I bought Gravity Crash couple days ago and that’s a great lil game.

Am looking forward to the new Uncharted map and double cash this weekend.

The bayoneta demo is great. It’s ofcourse not in the EU store but it is in Englisch.


for people who ask about tekken 6 release,i think european version come on december 11th

suom160j-sssHake 26 November, 2009 @ 2:44 pm   74

Still nothing, we waiting and waiting. (RE, Abe…)


Thanks Mike for the info. Plenty of new content. But do you know anything about the Adhoc Party Software which was released last week in the US Store?

Well, and opportunistically, anything new about FFVIII and Vagrant Story? Thanks again.


Wait…. WHAT!? They dropped the Fallout 3 DLC prices 2 bucks a pieces? That’s not really fair, since they were 10 bucks last week :S

wbrinkman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:45 pm   77

Mike, I have to appreciate your updates with the locale mentions recently.

Where are this week’s Rock Band tracks?

The AFI and The Bangles songs were delayed from last week, but we should be getting some Tom Petty, Kelly Clarkson and Pink from this week’s DLC to!

That’s according to Harmonix anyway:

commuterzombie 26 November, 2009 @ 2:47 pm   79

Will Vid store updates be listed separately? Do you know anything about the Vid store, for example why the rental option isn’t available for the latest releases?

mcwildcard 26 November, 2009 @ 2:47 pm   80

It’s been a while since a real bona-fide anti-climax Thursday.
Not even any special offers?
*looks at the US Store*
Curse those lucky Americans and their giving of thanks.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:50 pm    

    Our special offers update on a fortnightly basis, therefore the special offers that were on the store last week remain…

indy-greg 26 November, 2009 @ 2:47 pm   81

Don’t you get it Sony? Why are you giving us unpopular PSONE Classics like the disney ones and the unknown ones.

Just give us popular ones or not at all!

(and yes i appreciate we have had some PSONE Classics we actually want i.e. metal gear solid and final fantasty).

Posted on 13 November, 2009 at 9:10 am by Mike Kebby

Things are looking up for the rest of the year, I’m hoping this will be the last quiet week of the year.

The tumbleweeds begin to stroll past………;)

Galvanise_ 26 November, 2009 @ 2:48 pm   83

Hi Mike, thanks for the update. Without giving anything away, do we have any more ‘big’ updates coming this year. I’m not talking in terms of volume of content, but in terms of ‘big’ releases that people want, like when we got Metal Gear last week.

I know PixelJunk Shooter is coming, but it would be nice to know if anything without a date attached to it as of yet publicly is coming this year. I’m getting a £50 PSN card for Xmas you see, and would like to know if I’ll have anything ‘big’ to buy on Xmas that we don’t know about yet.


    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:51 pm    

    I get into trouble when discussing forthcoming release dates, which is why I very rarely give that information out anymore…sorry :(

lulufeena 26 November, 2009 @ 2:48 pm   84

so no word mike on ff8? u said it was coming soon in late september i think,2 months and still no sign :(

Mike when can we get the Thrillville becaause I sold them to get the PSP Go?

Kenshin71 26 November, 2009 @ 2:51 pm   86

“PSone (emulated for PS3 and PSP)

Lilo and Stitch: Trouble in Paradise…”

Haha, I notice the word Classic has been dropped. Who is the Senior Manager of the Playstation Store? They should do a Q&A on the blog. I would like to know the logic behind some of their frankly bizarre choices and methodology.


well they say if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.

SlapnutzUK 26 November, 2009 @ 2:52 pm   88

Finally the Marvel DLC has arrived after falling out of the to do pile.


TheKillerSnowman 26 November, 2009 @ 2:52 pm   89

hehe yeah :) so when do you come out with the game pack to DJ Hero?

Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 2:53 pm   90

I have to ask (and this is for everyone), do you expect massive amounts of releases on a retail level every week?


Where is OFP:DR DLC
Codemasters say it’s confirmed for release today!

PLZ respond!!

Smegzilla 26 November, 2009 @ 2:53 pm   92

Cheers Mike, will just keep my fingers crossed on that patch then. Bit of a pain but it’s not like I’ll die if I don’t get any trophies on flOw. :P

Poor Poor Mike, I feel for you on days like these. Back to all the great content I have from SCEE like Ratchet and Clank, MW2, Ass Creed 2, Fifa 10, Buzz Quiz World etc etc.

Quit Moaning people.


Another Awesome Update From SCEE

Hi Mike!

I’ve read that PixelJunk Shooter will be released on Dec. 10, is it true?

Amherst_Wind_4 26 November, 2009 @ 2:55 pm   96

Thanks a lot for the response, its awesome that you keep an eye on the blog! I did notice I got that trophy early on. Would it work if I copied my data to a USB, deleted it on PS3, got the trophy, then replaced that save with my original one?

VitalogyPJ 26 November, 2009 @ 2:57 pm   97

Mike can you, please, tell me when will this afternoob be available VidZone for the new countries?



Ahh common… lilo and stitch why not.. 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue you know you want it ;)

Mike please, do you know when dj hero content (David guetta pack) will be release on the store ?

No question about FFviii for me! I know you don’t have more information at the moment!

Thanks for the update, and your post ! (sorry for my english too xD)


VitalogyPJ 26 November, 2009 @ 2:57 pm   100


philipathens 26 November, 2009 @ 2:57 pm   101

WHAT? This is unfair! Not only you delay the PSE EU release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance by two weeks, it is not available in certain countries? WHY? I live in Greece…

Acrivision said that the DLC will be available worldwide…


I have to ask (and this is for everyone), do you expect massive amounts of releases on a retail level every week?

yes :P

mcwildcard 26 November, 2009 @ 2:58 pm   103

“Our special offers update on a fortnightly basis, therefore the special offers that were on the store last week remain…”
Aaah, I hadn’t noticed that.
Michael Kebby, you are hereby relieved of my moaning about special offers every week. I’ll do it every fortnight instead, that’s 50% off, who says you’re the only one who does special offers eh?! ;o)

*koff* Prince of Persia Classic *koff*

Oh, and any news about Braid would be joyfully received, no matter how vague or non-committal!

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:27 pm    

    Haha, I look forward to it :)

    Braid is coming, can’t give specifics just yet though.

sephiroth180 26 November, 2009 @ 2:59 pm   104

Hey mike, good update today. :) Just wanting to know if you heard anything about Vargent Story (or however it’s spelled :P), keep up the good work, I really appriciate it :)

AshKorsair 26 November, 2009 @ 2:59 pm   105

this update sucks, but dragon age will keep me occupied for a long time so i dont care to much.

lilo and stitch ftw!

Mike I ment to say when can Europe get the Thrillville games becaause I sold them to get the PSP Go?

kingpin2 26 November, 2009 @ 2:59 pm   107

Ahhh zombies at last! Really been looking forward to this :D Big suprise with the Borderlands dlc price too, i thought it would be £7.99 lol More money for LBP content now. Cheers Mike




“I have to ask (and this is for everyone), do you expect massive amounts of releases on a retail level every week?”

I don’t lol Just ignore the spoilt greedy idiots hastling ye man. I think the updates have been pretty good :s I would expect 1 big update a month but i can’t say theres been a week i havn’t downloaded anything or wanted more than 1 thing released so i’ve been getting more than i expected or wanted. So i don’t know what peoples problems are.

Way people comment on here i’m surprised you still anwser their queries lol.


yo kingpin wanna go shoot some zombies later :P gearbox FTW :P…

Rob_Velocity 26 November, 2009 @ 3:02 pm   111

I actually feel sorry for you blog guys. It’s like your job is to break bad news to people every single week – kinda like a doctor in a really crappy hospital.

I mean the US get Resident Evil 2 and Soul Reaver and we get Lilo and Stitch. It’s kinda funny at this stage.

tekkenism 26 November, 2009 @ 3:02 pm   112

We got an another great game this week too! Lilo and Stitch! Wow!

IGN’s ‘Lilo and Stitch’ review:

‘The worst of it is that the controls will probably frustrate the kids who would want the game.’

Any kid here? Is this a joke? Do we have to beg every week to get some serious, ‘real’ PsOne Classics?

phoenix2912 26 November, 2009 @ 3:02 pm   113

Mike!!!!!!!!!!! Any news on Peggle for the EU


* Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 – Character and Mission Pack (£7.99/€9.99) Rating: PEGI 16+

Availability: All except Czech Republic, Greece, Luxembourg, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and UAE.

Will there only be this pack or the Juggernaut DLC as well ?

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 3:04 pm   115

YES (we ALL shouted) if M$ can or look no further then scea/scej apparently they can do better on a weekly basis, lets do Maths

3+1=Shafted confuse: 3 region‘s, 1 profits, give scee little money=shafted

i know scee is a big banner, a big banner with a small team.

dont say that not case because home scee team is small & EU home shaft us just as the store does,

we getting use to it by now. :P

Still no vidzone yet, does it realy come today in the Netherlands? If yes, can you tell me how late we can expect it? Thanks in advance :)

Lee_and_Nomi 26 November, 2009 @ 3:05 pm   117

Nothing for me today, although I did buy Gravity Crash on tuesday.

Still no info on Braid or Peggle *sad panda*

I’m not having a go at you Mike though :) just would like to know if there is any visability on those titles


and i suppose the lbp demo still hasn’t been submitted for inclusion on the eu store?
is that why we’re still not getting the demo for this british game?
but, nice to see we’re starting to get some of those uncharted motion comics.

TrinodUK 26 November, 2009 @ 3:06 pm   119

Yes! bring us Braid…


@#87 “well they say if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.

dya ever think of maybe living by the principal yourself?

Rob_Velocity 26 November, 2009 @ 3:07 pm   121

“I have to ask (and this is for everyone), do you expect massive amounts of releases on a retail level every week?”

Not necessarily, but if it stacked up favourably with the US store, it would be a major, major start.

I do expect retail level releases for the PSP every week because of the reliance the PSP Go has on digital distribution. It’s basic business sense that if you guys want the PSP Go to be a success, you have to give it a game library that’s comparable to the PSP – otherwise there’s no point in the console. However, in the last few weeks the PSP releases have been at a level I’d consider acceptable.

Rob_Velocity 26 November, 2009 @ 3:08 pm   122

And really, who’s going to buy the likes of Lilo and Stitch or A Bugs Life? If those game break 1,000 sales each I’d be stunned.

Mike: in reply to your question re. retail releases: of course not. I think that a key difference is that we know well in advance which titles are receiving a retail release on which dates, so there is never a case of building anticipation for a title which isn’t getting released for months.
This obviously isn’t something that you can control about the digital model, but peoples’ building anticipation each week for the possible/hinted/rumoured release of xxx, yyy or zzz are probably justification for your receiving more flak than the Gamestation employee confronted with a customer who’s just found that GT5 /still/ hasn’t been released.

waypoetic 26 November, 2009 @ 3:12 pm   124

OH C’MON! The americans get the PS1 classic “Fighting Force” and we get Lilo and Stitch!!?

djax-djax 26 November, 2009 @ 3:14 pm   125

Please, where is Williams Pinball, which was announced at last update but finally was not at store?

Will be avaliable Pinball Heroes at EU? When?

Can you tell us about games for next week?


TheKillerSnowman 26 November, 2009 @ 3:14 pm   126

i hope that you mike can take Alien – Resurrection to the store :) i love that ps1 game :)

phoenix2912 26 November, 2009 @ 3:15 pm   127

Mike!!!!!!!!!!! Any news on Peggle for the EU please


@120 i thought about it but then they also say “Opposition brings concord. Out of discord comes the fairest harmony”
and one of my own, “apathy is a poor catalyst for change” quite fond of that one.
so here i am. :)


Being sensible mike how can we not expect a huge update every week?

we’re talking about a store with 50% less content than the usa or japan. with prices higher. usually updates late on at night. tbf mike if things became more standard we wouldn’t complain but its gone way beyond that now.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:21 pm    

    Because we can only release the content that is submitted to us – we’re not sitting on content, if it’s ready it gets released…that’s the bottom line.

people seem to forget that yes, Disney did submit lilo and stich for release. i’ll just write that again there. DISNEY DID SUBMIT. it is up to these guys to submit games to us, not vice versa! thats why we’re only catchin up now on the liks of MGS etc. why can you put your word count in your criticisms against mike and instead, put them in an email to the developer of the games you want.

djax-djax 26 November, 2009 @ 3:19 pm   131

Why is update only on Thursday, why is not every day?

@128 ah, a kinda “do as i say, not as i do” attitude then…


and i like this one
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress. “

waypoetic 26 November, 2009 @ 3:20 pm   134

And Mike Kebby, some of your replys are pretty unprofessional, like “sigh” and the responses where you are down right rude. I like Jeff Rubenstein, he’s a charming guy with some funny sarcastic lines here and there, and he’s giving great answers too! ;) Can’t say that about you though.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:23 pm    

    If you added up all my comments on the blog, and counted how many gave a honest, helpful answer you would see they far outweight the ones where I put my better judgement to one side and allow myself to be sarcastic.


I am with Rob_Velocity

If a company releases a console entirely dependant upon digital distribution, alongside an existing console with a pretty impressive back catalogue of games, charged an extra £120 for it and then don’t even get new releases available for the same day, or even at all, as retail UMD then very very slowly drip feed releases from the back catalogue, they should hardly be surprised at the back lash.

One of the few new releases on the PSN last week was so badly messed up, and continues to be handled with such embarrassing ineptitude by a support team so ill-informed and generally lacking in any knowledge of the actual product they support, that frankly the Go deserves to be the massive failure that it will almost certainly become.


@ Del_007, I completely agree. Some people are just frankly ungrateful and I don’t think any amount of content would satisfy them unless the update was specifically taylored to their tastes every single week.

There is a huge and varied amount of content on the Store and it grows by varying degress each week. There’s plenty on there I’ve not had a chance to play, so if I was really in need of some content (you know, if I wasn’t busy playing MW2, Uncharted 2, Critter Crunch, Gravity Crash, and after Xmas day Assassin’s Creed II and Borderlands) I’m 100% sure I could go on the store and find something I missed the first time (the Special Offers are good for highlighting this too). Off the top of my head I can think of 3 I wouldn’t mind trying that I missed at release – The Last Guy, Topatoi, and Cuboid. There are also plenty I own already that I could happily spend more time with.

I just don’t get some people, I don’t know how Mike puts up with it! It’s like some people judge the PSN by the amount of content that week and not the content that is available in total – I doubt anyone here has played (and completed) everything on the store – there is more to the Store than the ‘Latest’ screen you know!


I hate to say it but maybe the Store should start ‘drip-feeding’ content as an when it’s ready, so there is no one main update. It’s almost like the Thursday update is treated as some big event, and when that event doesn’t appeal to some people they spit their dummies out!

If you don’t like Disney PS1 games, tough! There are clearly many thousands of people that do, otherwise the publisher wouldn’t see the value/profit in continuing to emulate them. The type of people that download Disney games, are probably not the type of people that visit this blog. People just need to grow up and get a life, and stop treating Thursday’s as the most important day in their gaming calendar (and then forgetting it ever happened by the following Thursday!)…

It’s not Mike’s fault (or SCEEs) if publishes can’t/don’t want to convert their PS1 games to PSN releases – SCEE can’t force them!

ducathebest 26 November, 2009 @ 3:22 pm   138

“Lilo and Stitch: Trouble in Paradise (£3.99/€4.99) Rating: PEGI 3+ ”

Disney again?

Come ooonn =/, all of oss aren´t 3-8 years old.

I´am sorry, I know it isn´t your fault but I had to write down how I feel somwere :P !

Milky_08 26 November, 2009 @ 3:23 pm   139

Will we ever see crash 2 arrive back on the store? It was my favourite one :(

rayquaza2982 26 November, 2009 @ 3:23 pm   140

Hi Mike are we ever going to see Spyro 2 return to the PSN? I really want to play this game on PSP and my copy I own no longer works. PLease could you shed some light on this issue?


It’s not Mike’s fault (or SCEEs) if publishes can’t/don’t want to convert their PS1 games to PSN releases – SCEE can’t force them!

yeah they can. sony = big business. if scea scee and scej say together you localise content for worldwide release developers would have no choice.

MatthewSFC 26 November, 2009 @ 3:24 pm   142

Yay Borderlands DLC!
Now to finish upteen games before I get to it. ='(


It’s not Mike’s fault (or SCEEs) if publishes can’t/don’t want to convert their PS1 games to PSN releases – SCEE can’t force them!

Very true and we shouldn’t expect anything more than Sony and Mike pushing them to support us, BUT, where are all SCE’s PSX releases??

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 3:25 pm   144

we had this chat in the forums about us sending Emails to Devs of what we want

i did it once got F-all back from em, & its Not our job to help SCEE to do their job.

to the devs you want our money dont you Strange it doesn’t look like it they i told em. :P.

yay this update is so great how do you do it mike? (sarcasme)
any news on any good content coming 2 the european stores or are you guys finally going 2 shut down cause it woulden’t really mather with updates like this.

Mike I ment to say when can Europe get the Thrillville games becaause I sold them to get the PSP Go? Please Reply.

VicRattlehead 26 November, 2009 @ 3:26 pm   147

yayayayaya powerstone collection… awesome stuff thanks


Hey, I was wondering… I read about and saw a video on here back in the summer for a game called Hustle Kings and was half expecting to be playing it by christmas. Any idea if the game is still in production and coming at some point or if it’s just disappeared. cheers

Workshed 26 November, 2009 @ 3:28 pm   149

Hey Mike,

Thanks for the update.

How come the Fallout 3 DLC is £7.99 in the UK but €7.99 for the rest of Europe? Any chance of a fix on the price?


Grieves1 26 November, 2009 @ 3:28 pm   150

No FFVIII, FF Tactics, Vagrants Story or Ninja Gaiden pinball table, so nothing for me but thanks for the “Heads Up”. At least I don’t have bother checking the store tonight.

Sasukekun 26 November, 2009 @ 3:29 pm   151

Hey Mike
Me again
When are we getting Peggle?

jimmy-google 26 November, 2009 @ 3:31 pm   152

Mike, every week I wonder more and more how you put up with everything that gets thrown at you each thursday. I’m suprised you even comment on the store update posts anymore – if it was me I think I’d have snapped by now

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:34 pm    

    It’s just a case of not letting the comments get to you personally, sometimes I slip and am a bit more forceful than I mean to be, but for I believe that people have a right to leave feedback and where possible I will engage them and try to talk it through.

    Sometimes it is hard though…

tekkenism 26 November, 2009 @ 3:32 pm   153

@141: definitely!!!

MR-NONO77 26 November, 2009 @ 3:32 pm   154

PAL PS1 games are crap anyway,your better of creating a US account and buy some US psn cards and get them that way if you really want ps1 games,60Hz ps1 games run much better then those crappy pal 50Hz versions & you won’t get black borders on the top and bottom of your screen and let’s not forget the huge selection the US store has,in the end it will cost you less money & you will always get the better versions!

Carmanen 26 November, 2009 @ 3:32 pm   155

So, Obscure is available now “officially”, so Mike i have a question: I managed to buy that game when it was on Store first time, but it was withdrawn because it wasn’t fully tested… …so, can i download it again (and don’t have to buy it again!) now just to make sure i have this fully working game?

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:48 pm    

    It’ll still be on your download list, so if you want to be sure then you can download it again sure :)

micromagic 26 November, 2009 @ 3:32 pm   156

@134 I like Mike Kebby’s responses, he sounds like a normal human being instead of just some mechanical corporate robot (that’s not aimed at Jeff btw, I like him too). Keep up the good work Mike.

I think the store has come a long long way since the wilderness which was 2007. People forget that.

Anyhow, just one question, do you know why there’s no Rock Band PSP content this week?

spatsnaz 26 November, 2009 @ 3:33 pm   157

Yeahh The Last Guardian trailer. Been wanting it on psn for a while now. Thanks for the update!

magmar126 26 November, 2009 @ 3:33 pm   158

No DJ Hero content?
US Store has David Guetta pack :(

hey mike look at this list and then yours a man could cry with the stuff we are getting.
abd they released it even faster than your team.


Because we can only release the content that is submitted to us – we’re not sitting on content, if it’s ready it gets released…that’s the bottom line.

and we get that. we really do. what we dont get is 1) games like silent hill added to the store then removed..

2) sce games added to other stores SCEJ AND SCEA but not ours. and im sorry but sce can’t work together to ensure worldwide releases of sony’s own ps1 games?

Workshed 26 November, 2009 @ 3:34 pm   161

Thanks for the reply on the Fallout 3 DLC Mike.

This is probably the publishers fault but I have to ask – how come it’s £7.99/€9.99 per pack when you can buy the Game of the Year edition for less than £20? Any chance you could have a word with the publisher/person to blame?

Thanks again!


@132, it’s not my job to provide a service for europe, i’m the customer.
a few more quotes that i think are appropriate.
“Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts.”
“Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure. ”
“The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year.” this one strikes a chord.
“Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.”
last one “An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. “


I’m really disappointed that we did not get the special offers US got. Was looking forward to buying Flower for half the price…


Been looking forward to the Borderlands content :D

Hey Mike,

Long time reader first time writer. Just writing to say cheers for taking the time to talk to us, and taking all the flack every week from people :p

I have a question of my own too. Could you elaborate more as to why the store update time is so random? It seems to be getting later and later (after 5pm) these days.

Sasukekun 26 November, 2009 @ 3:37 pm   165


BenderUnit22 26 November, 2009 @ 3:37 pm   166

No Braid yet? :(

AaronSOLDIER 26 November, 2009 @ 3:38 pm   167

Hi Mike, do you know anything from Namco about the Namco Museum Essentials?

And any updates for when/if Crash Bandicoot 2 will be up?


waypoetic 26 November, 2009 @ 3:38 pm   168

@Mike Kebbt “If you added up all my comments on the blog, and counted how many gave a honest, helpful answer you would see they far outweight the ones where I put my better judgement to one side and allow myself to be sarcastic.”

Still, that still doesn’t count for your rude attitude sometimes.

@ graz16

“It’s not Mike’s fault (or SCEEs) if publishes can’t/don’t want to convert their PS1 games to PSN releases – SCEE can’t force them!”

I’ve heard the explainings and they sound pretty logical – that the studio decides where the game ends up/what store it gets published on. But does that mean that the publishers either neglect the EU store or just doesn’t know about it…? I don’t think so. I’m confused.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:55 pm    

    I would argue that I’m not rude, sometimes forthright and sarcastic but never rude.

    You also need to gauge my comments in context to what I’m responding to, if somebody leaves feedback (good or bad) but does it in a normal tone, then I’ll actively engage with that, if people are trying to bait me, or purposefully be rude, then I may respond a bit more in kind.

tekkenism 26 November, 2009 @ 3:39 pm   169

They pay $4.99 for Prince of Persia Classic.
We pay GBP 7.99 = $13.23.

.. Oh no, no, we shouldn’t complain about anything!

HiddenAway 26 November, 2009 @ 3:39 pm   170

@ 159

It’s Thanksgiving. Sony America aren’t working this Thursday, therefore the update was released 2 days early. They did this last year as well…

Also why are people complaining about pricing/releases for PSN games compared to the US.
DLC I can understand, because those are region specific, but what’s holding everybody back from making a US PSN Account and buying a US PSN Card?
It’s all region-free people, you don’t have to wait for Braid, FFVII, they’re all waiting for you.



I only quoted this line….

It’s not Mike’s fault (or SCEEs) if publishes can’t/don’t want to convert their PS1 games to PSN releases – SCEE can’t force them!”

Mine was a response to this.

sowasred2012 26 November, 2009 @ 3:40 pm   173

Jesus Jones.

Looking through all the replies, and the reactions to them… Mike can’t win!

He announces what he can, he gets lynched cos it doesn’t feature everything everyone wants.

He replies with friendly comments explaining it’s beyond his control, he still gets lynched.

He makes a few sarcastic comments (kind of justifiable, he’s one man versus, at last count, about 150 gamers, those kind of odds will wear anyone’s patience down a little), he gets lynched by people claiming he’s being unprofessional!

Not that I’m taking an apologist stance on Mike’s behalf, I’m just worried that too much of this abuse is gonna chip away at whatever relationship it is we have with Mike as the public face of the PS Store team, to a point where there’s no more interaction.

I love the banter on here, but it quite regularly gets a bit nasty, and I think too much of that is levelled at Mike personally, as if he’s somehow solely responsible for whatever it is that delays the various items each of us are hankering for.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:57 pm    

    Thank you for your reasoned response – I’ll never ask people not to leave feedback or moan by any means, but sometimes as you say things get heated on here, that’s the only thing I’ll take exception to.

vicentecarro 26 November, 2009 @ 3:40 pm   174

What happened with the “Operation flashpoint:Dragon rising” DLC?
According the oficial webpage today is the release date:

Derstarsh 26 November, 2009 @ 3:41 pm   175

Credit where credit is due: the PSP side of things had definitely improved of late. The last few updates where a lot better and have given me some nice stuff to fill up the ol’ PSP Go with.

Like LittleBigPlanet. And Breath of Fire III. And MGS.

Pitty so many of the Minis are not included for The Netherlands, but hey, you can’t win them all!

Here’s hoping for the Oddworld games before christmas :)


DLC I can understand, because those are region specific, but what’s holding everybody back from making a US PSN Account and buying a US PSN Card?
It’s all region-free people, you don’t have to wait for Braid, FFVII, they’re all waiting for you.

simple answer against terms and conditions can be banned from psn…

sympozium_666 26 November, 2009 @ 3:41 pm   177

Dragon Ball Raging Blast– Warriors on Earth Pack oh please tell me if this is adds MASTER ROSHI!! & HERCULE!!! LOL
Update is looking good

mike when will sony america take over sony europe i sure hope they make it fast.

ha heres a quote i like. “Cop the f *ck on moaning at a guy who has no direct influence over what it is you are complaing about. go work for Sony or the companies of the games you want and change it yourself”

@162 not aimed at you specifically, jus a quote i like.

Ygdrasille 26 November, 2009 @ 3:44 pm   180

“WHAT? This is unfair! Not only you delay the PSE EU release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance by two weeks, it is not available in certain countries? WHY?”
I second this question. “Available in All locales except 6-7 countries” is kind of misleading I guess. :\

@162 act not aimed at u, it took out my smiley that showed it was jus a general comment.
here it is.

Thanks for the update. The Borderlands DLC is all I need.

Sasukekun 26 November, 2009 @ 3:46 pm   185


Also, isn’t there a movie store update this week? I thought it was going to get loads of new content WEEKLY?
What happened to that plan? Europeans ignored by Sony EU again?

I don’t mean to give you crap Mike, but Sony EU really need to start taking notice of their consumers.

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:58 pm    

    It’s a different team who manage the video service, so they will announce their content in a separate post ;)

No it’s not. I already did what you suggest now. I created a US PSN account, bought a US PSN Card, downloaded the PsOne Classics @ US PSN. Guess what.. The games are in black&white! TADA! NTSC salutes you!!!

@tekkenism: either you must have an older tv or your tv doesn’t support ntsc signals properly thats the only explanition i have,they work just fine on my tv in color and i’m from europe.


Mike, I noticed G-Police has silently appeared on the PSP store, was that by your hand? I know it has been on PS3 Store for a while now.

post 186
the point is that they should get off their asses and do some work for a change you work for your money so they can work for theirs.

    I refute this 100%, so easy for you criticise when you don’t see how hard people in this company work to provide weekly updates.

Milky_08 26 November, 2009 @ 3:55 pm   201

Do we get any special offers this week?

    Mike Kebby 26 November, 2009 @ 4:00 pm    

    The same ones that were up last week, a new batch will eb coming next Thursday too.

influenceuk 26 November, 2009 @ 3:55 pm   202

Hi, anyone know when we will get the other parts of the assassins creed 2 lineage?

phoenix2912 26 November, 2009 @ 3:55 pm   203

Peggle EU any ideas??????????????????

aalekevin 26 November, 2009 @ 3:56 pm   204

Mike do you know at what time the stor will be updated at?

Sasukekun 26 November, 2009 @ 3:56 pm   205

And movie store update?
Come on Mike, you’re normally so nice to me. :-(

i would love this blog 2 have the headline.

I wanted to ask this a for a while….
Is there going to be a fallout 3 dlc bundle, for reasonable price??? bcos the current pricing for the fallout 3 dlc is absurd, £8 x 5 is !!!!£40£!!!!, wen in contrast the fallout 3 goty edition is available for ass low as £24s, and that has all 5 dlc’s and the game. I already have the game, but i think i myte end up getting the goty edition, cos as i sed earlier, the pricing is rediculous.

post 203
your telling us they diden’t even update the store yet with this little amount off content i doubt you would have 2 wait that long.

edit: I just found it for £21.76, COM ON…..

timestoby 26 November, 2009 @ 3:59 pm   210

breath of fire?

where are these dynamic themes and why cant we see a brief preview of them at the store?

i hope sony allow the comic reader on ps3 aswell?

phoenix2912 26 November, 2009 @ 3:59 pm   211

Sir Mike,

Please give us some info on Peggle, pretty please

TrailBlazor 26 November, 2009 @ 4:01 pm   212

Oh come on Mike, even you have to admit the recent (with the exception of MGS) PSone “Classics” are awful, i mean they weren’t even good games in general(even for children, why most games aimed towards children suck?).

CoolTails 26 November, 2009 @ 4:04 pm   213

OMG that pricing is absolutely crazy!!!

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 4:05 pm   214

this is for the brown nose ppl & SCEE boss this our store is a joke,

i say this you hate ppl moaning it tell us you like our CRAP store, why dont you do something about it

im getting sick of it as well, for the ones that say go on the scea store i would gladly go there (castlevaina 2 of em FFT more ps3 content) that…

you could shake the stick at but to do so i need a scea psn card get 1 from ebay any online store dont you need a debit card to use to get 1

no im screwed got no debit card so its a dumb deal. :|

RootGinger 26 November, 2009 @ 4:06 pm   215

Where is F1 2009? It seems Sony aren’t too bothered about it’s PSP Go owners. I can’t see any reason why titles are not released simultaneously at retail and digital levels. I’m seriously considering taking my PSP Go back to the shop. As far as I’m concerned I’ve paid a premium and I’m receiving an inferior service. This is not how Sony painted the picture when releasing the PSP Go. A good case of goods being not as described methinks. Sale of Goods act 1979 (as amended).

MR-NONO77 26 November, 2009 @ 4:06 pm   216

VidZone is ready to launch in the Netherlands, Portugal & Austria! Just waiting on the PlayStation Store to publish later today.


@214 dude do you ever read what you post? you can buy a 3v card, which is an top-up credit card, which can be topped up by cash, and then used as if a normal credit card on ebay etc.

but i dont know why i’m even helping you, you’re just trying to jump on the “i hate sony” bandwagon and use “cool” words like brownnoser etc.

grow up dude

You don’t need a debit card or anything, just use paypal.

You fund paypal through any regular bank account and then buy a PSN Card through ebay.

It’s not hard at all.

No Tekken 6 for PSP yet? When will it release btw?
I hoped for more, but this update is oké.
(except for Lilo and Stich, do you really think there are people who will buy this?)

Release more MINI’s ;D and more games that have been released on UMD the last 4 months! that’s how you can make me happy. haha

Another Disney game on the PSone “Classics”.
Is anyone actually paying for these abomination?
We now have Metal Gear Solid, which means Konami are on board with the PSone “Classic” idea, so where’s Silent Hill?
The Amreicans have it now, so why is the EU version missing?
And on that note where are all the Tomb Raiders. If my memory serves me, Core was a British developer, so why have America got ALL the PSone Tomb Raider games, and we haven’t even got one?

DANTE234 26 November, 2009 @ 4:16 pm   221

discussing foreign accounts is against sony’s terms & conditions, don’t encourge people to create them

Lantianer21 26 November, 2009 @ 4:16 pm   222

Hey Mike is this Uncharted Eye of indra, just on english or norwegian in my store?

tekkenism 26 November, 2009 @ 4:16 pm   223

@219: glad i bought a 360 they put sony to shame with their universal releases on marketplace .

it seems i will do the same. i am getting tired of begging to get the same opportunities as Japanese and American PSN users.

Agamer2006 26 November, 2009 @ 4:17 pm   224

You cant blame Mike, Some Users arnt being nice to him and saying its his fault when its not


If the only thing you can do is being negative about Sony, just sell are your stuff and buy a different console?


any word if we europeans are getting the killzone 2 map dlc a price drop?

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 4:21 pm   227

No you are dead wrong i know about these V2 cards Mr you cant use your real address i try it with my old debit card,

or are you saying to break the law, i will speak my mind thank you very much, i know you from the forums shooting ppl down.

because they moan. when scee gets it act together i will gradly praise em.

like i did last week about the vidstore. i think you should grow up & read more. :P


it might nt be mikes fault bt how many weeks , months do we european ps3 owners need to beg for stuff other regions who have same console a ps3 already have , europe is ps3s biggest install base yet we get treated like [DELETED] with everythn , store , home , video store , patches , funny how its only sony who have this problem after years , nintendo and 360 do it right ,

Mike can you please tell me if Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures got any PSP Trophies or is it just for PS3 the Trophies?

Btw, if 2K10 is only €19,99.
It’s maybe fair to lower the price of NBA Live 10, that’s €39,99 right now..

Hang in there Mike, everyone’s quick to criticise.

By the way, why is everyone complaining about A Bug’s Life? That game was freaking awesome! I’ve never seen gameplay mechanics like it since (not in the same way), and it has a real challenge for collectors.

Keep up the good work Mike and co, and send Braid on our way ASAP ;)

I do have a question regarding your Rock Band DLC output, last week there was none (to which no reason was given) and now, instead of catching up your a week behind. So every other platform recieves the Tom Petty plus other artists pack, including the american store, yet we dont and there is again no indication why this is.

So the question is are you going to remain perputually behind or will there be an attempt next week to catch up and put both what should have been this weeks and next weeks out at the same time?

I have noticed this consistently on the EU store, to the point that it looks like a pretty poor effort in all honesty (especially when your competitors appear to have no problem at all making the deadlines). Are there any reasons for this?

I’m not having a go, I realise that your team can only put up what is given and there are other factors but to be brutally honest with you I do wish I had picked Rock Band up for my 360 instead of my PS3 such has been the level of service given with the DLC.

Would appreciate any replies or thoughts, again this is not directed at yourself as, has been been pointed out before, you simply place the content up.

Cheers Mike.

Agamer2006 26 November, 2009 @ 4:29 pm   233

Im I the only one happy with this weeks content. Ive got gravity Crash to play and im gonna pick up Uncharted Comics as well. I dont mind waiting as I have other games to play. Need to finish MGS as well

rundmc666 26 November, 2009 @ 4:29 pm   234


With some of the posts here its a wonder you still respond week in week out.

One suggestion that may help a part of the backlash – Why not make the official update day Friday, with an effective preview day on thursday.

That way you guys can carry on as you do and upload things when they’re ready on the thursday and they’ll always be on time for the Friday “Release Date” :)


@Skookie are you serious? did you actually read my post? v2 card? no sorry, i said 3v card. a 3V card is an online credit card that is topped up by CASH! you can then go to ebay, and buy an american psn card! i dont know which law you are talking about breaking? elaborate please, cheers…

tutchmedia 26 November, 2009 @ 4:30 pm   236

Hi Mike,

Some good content here.

Is there anyway we could have it so that the store is updated at the same time every week? It seems that sometimes we have to wait till 8 at night to get the new content.

No Final Fantasy VIII this week??
Can you tell something about it??

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 4:32 pm   238

Yes why the hell we have to Beg for content each week. i also said i point the finger at the devs

here a other saying “its a 2 way street” meaning SCEE talks to devs devs talks to SCEE easy job done

other region does it better it‘s the truth localisation was the problem but scee brought out the vidzone & vidstore in drip-feed.

because of legal matters so why not do the same with store content. :)


no video store update this week lol .

whoismilan 26 November, 2009 @ 4:35 pm   240

“I have to ask (and this is for everyone), do you expect massive amounts of releases on a retail level every week?”

As someone else wrote, with retail products we have release dates well in advance, with the PS Store people come here hoping that perhaps this is the week which will bring that thing they’ve been waiting for.

I guess, people get even more disappointed when that thing they’ve been waiting for is something that’s already done (PSone games, content that’s already available in other regions, …).

For example, I would guess that at least some Americans were disappointed when Sony announced that EyePet is ready, but won’t be released in the US because Sony wants to do more marketing for it in that region.

Note though that I’m not complaining about this weeks update. Last weeks update was so good (MGS, Disgaea) that I wouldn’t complain even if there were no updates at all for the rest of the year. :D

please Mike can you please tell me if Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures got any PSP Trophies or is it just for PS3 the Trophies?

Is there going to be PS2 Games comeing on the PSN Store Mike?

Lantianer21 26 November, 2009 @ 4:40 pm   243

i dont think this game got any trophys,why should it give you trohys on your PSN acc.!No PSP game do it,when im right.

lardteamaker 26 November, 2009 @ 4:41 pm   244

@243 PSP doesn’t have trophies mate.

Borderlands DLC Marvel DLC and the U2 comics for me this week. :)

@239 OPM in the UK last month said the ETA for FFVII is 2010

hindahouse 26 November, 2009 @ 4:41 pm   245

Where’s Tarzaqn on PS1!! That was a great game, like hercules which i already have from the store.

jimmy-google 26 November, 2009 @ 4:42 pm   246

@224 xbox live is only available in 26 countries compared to the 59 the psn is available for. It’s a lot easier to release everything at the same time when you deal with less than half the countries especially as SCEE deals with most of the 59 countries that have the psn.

Agamer2006 26 November, 2009 @ 4:44 pm   247

You dont know about the Video Store yet. It will be post in a separate blog post. And if it isnt, then you have 2000 movies to choose from :)

danc2991 26 November, 2009 @ 4:44 pm   248

Mike please can you tell us if F1 2009 will ever be released on the PSP Store, just a simple yes or no!

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 4:47 pm   249

okay v3 v2 wotever i put i cant explain it here like dante says

it‘s in the T&C‘s about other accounts haveing 1 is alright the scea Home manger said so most ppl, get it for the demos.

i cant say no-more just 1 word “address” :|

Mike Is there going to be PS2 Games comeing on the PSN Store and why cant the PSP have trophies?


@248 still doesnt matter excuses is all u hear from scee and fanboys happy with crap treatment , im sorry bt i didnt pay more money than u.s for my ps3 to get a major hashed down store with content and same for home , also waiting months for trophy patches coz scee ridiculous q&a


Glad to see Eye of Indra’s coming today!


Surely it would help if they updated more than once a week though? And it is hardly unheard of for content to only be available to certain regions (look above), I dont think the amount of countries is really a good excuse if said distribution can be controlled.

@Skookie are you reffering to a psn address or a 3v/debit card address?

if its the former, then you shouldnt have asked the question in the first place in your post as you are askin about US cards but yet are quoting dante.

if the latter, there is no problem with 3v addresses, you can use ur own.

if its the latter i’ll explain more thoroughly how 3v works

Rammsoldat 26 November, 2009 @ 4:49 pm   255

I see digital game distrobution works alot like traditional game distrobution.

so glad the ps3 is region free, sick of getting the shaft really.

yay demons souls.

MaxiM_82 26 November, 2009 @ 4:50 pm   256

Oh well, I guess I should have assumed that after a good update (last week was great for a change) there must be something to balance it out… Thank God I’m a PSP3000 user and I still have plenty of games that I need to finish first, but if I would be PSP Go! owner, I would go postal.


Haha you’re right man!
That game, released like 9 years ago?
I played that on my windows 97 PC and I was like.. 7 years old.
And I loved it. And I have to admit, it’s a great idea to make a PSPone Classic of “A Bug’s Life”

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 4:56 pm   258

yes Psn address i was meaning when you sign up of couse you need your real address but try linking your UK debit card not so easy,

& i would not mind doing it, but TBH i wanted to be on our store or a way like sega let slip about scea getting a kind of import store ;)

Blasteroids 26 November, 2009 @ 4:58 pm   259

Hey Mike,

You know the question.. Rock Band Track Pack pricing?

Perhaps the DLC delay is a sign that communication is starting to work and this is the reason that AFI pack has not been released here? Hopefully some good news in the future? If you cannot comment on those bits, then you could give a little feedback on the one I keep repeating :)

Was expecting a few other small games to be released, but I guess you will be keeping them up your sleeve for the run-up till x-mas ;)

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 5:00 pm   260

& no my uk dedit card was/is overdraft i dare not use it now. :D

SKILLZx5 26 November, 2009 @ 5:00 pm   261

Cant believe I am waiting for a digital download of a game I already own but refuses to boot on my PS3, yep you guessed it Final Fantasy VIII, please give us some info on the release of this Classic game so we can finally play it on our PS3’s.

@Skookie but in ur rant u were going on about the US store and debit cards. U do not have a UK debit card as you have already mentioned, therefor i dont even see what ur problem is. if you get a 3v voucher card, (look it up, not as complicated as it sounds) u can
A) buy a 20pound 3v voucher, go to ebay, buy a US psn voucher, den update ur US account (if you are entitled to have one) simple as. no need for this debit card that you dont seem to have anyway

B)Simply use the voucher u have bought to top up ur own wallet on your skookie account and buy EU products.

@skookie well u dont need to use a debit card in either of the options i’ve pointed out so ur grand

Mike are you there Is there going to be PS2 Games comeing on the PSN Store and why cant the PSP have trophies?

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 5:09 pm   265

i said i tried to link my old card when it was new to the us store my card address is different from scea details i was saying.

& ebay some prices as shockingly bad but thanks for helping out. :)


“Mike are you there Is there going to be PS2 Games comeing on the PSN Store and why cant the PSP have trophies?”

Sony said months ago Trophys will never come to the PSP. It was on alot of gaming news websites lol.


They mentioned why too but i forgot was too long ago… google is your friend ;)


Dear Mike,

Most people would rather say what’s on their mind when it’s troubling them. I don’t think it’s wrong to do so, but the tone of a lot of this week’s comments is really rude.

I just hope you won’t forget there are plenty of people around who are thankful for what you do here. I know you won’t take all these accusations personally, but I felt I just had to say something positive.

Secretly I think all those whiners are really Xbox fanboys that are jealous of the FREE service you and your team offer ;)

For the whiners: Please try to be polite. You act like a bunch of spoilt brats. You better get used to not getting everthing you want anytime you want it, or you will be a disappointed person. Especially when you reach puberty.

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 5:13 pm   269

& Mikeface wont answer any question about account hopping so with that i leave goodbye.

ps is the store updated yet. :D

Cypherous 26 November, 2009 @ 5:15 pm   270

STILL no ad-hoc party, please for the love of god tell us what is taking you so long to release this tiny piece of software, its not like there is a massive difference between the american release and the UK relase so whats stopping you they have already had it a week now so i’m getting a tad annoyed with these frankly rubbish store updates :/

Del_007 thanks it would of been good if there was PSP trophies and what about PS2 games on the PSN Store?

Skookie30 No not yet.

MadmanButter 26 November, 2009 @ 5:21 pm   273

Hey Mike! Thought I’d ask, Although I expect you wont have much to say :P

Any updates on if the Oddworld PSone classics are any more advanced to coming to the EU store? I’m still confused as to what Lorne Lanning meant by “its a PSN decision now” lol! :P

Cheers fella!

ninja_tom 26 November, 2009 @ 5:21 pm   274

Hi Mike,

You said you don’t deal with patches to #54 which will certainly cut down on my posts to this blog trying to track down the flOw trophies patch. However it would be useful to know if there is a blog on the site where that question and similar questions would be more suitably placed?


so much for 50 movies a week with video store lmfao SCEE FAIL AS PER

evilKnoxvill3 26 November, 2009 @ 5:24 pm   276

I think the update is quite good compared to the last couple of updates. Perhaps this has already been addressed and sorry for sounding a bit childish perhaps, but where is the Ezio Auditore costume for Little Big Planet that should have been released Nov 24th?

At least that was in the news for last week’s update …

giglamesh8 26 November, 2009 @ 5:28 pm   277

Still no news about the Dreamcast games coming to PSN then.

when is the Vidzone geting updated?


why did the price of the fallout 3 addons go down (and why is it still cheaper to buy the game of the year edition)

giglamesh8 26 November, 2009 @ 5:33 pm   280

Too many people asking when FFVIII (ff8) is coming, didn’t FF7 come out in the store this quarter?

I don’t think they should expect that anytime soon

Everyone Dracula – Undead Awakening and Blast Off is now up.

Jamie453 26 November, 2009 @ 5:37 pm   282

Mike, im sorry to beg but if you get the time PLEASE try and answer this?

Will Ad-hoc Party for EU be coming anytime soon(say a month)? I really need to know as i need to set up my PS3 to have a wired connection, and this takes quite a bit of time. Thanks for update mike

Has anyone downloaded Dracula – Undead Awakening yet?

Scourgewood 26 November, 2009 @ 5:42 pm   284

canand: I’m very tempted.

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 5:42 pm   285

i think the vid store been updated the latest films is different from last week NICE. :)

sleepyenglish 26 November, 2009 @ 5:43 pm   286

Same as other poster any news on a Hustle Kings release date?

lulufeena 26 November, 2009 @ 5:44 pm   287

mike perhaps a release date list of popular titles would reduce the amount of ppl who get on your case. try that approach next week see if it helps. have stuff like ps1 classics ff8-this week, breath of fire 4- december 2009, vagrant story-jan, oddworld-…. same with other content ppl know about like psp games dissidia – tba 2010. stuff like that so ppl have more information. i think what gets to most ppl is the lack of info we receive about the updates, we get a list once a week after announcements like ‘ff8 will be weeks rather than months’ and once a month update the list with newer titles. and allow ppl to request information to be added eg crisis core tba . the more informed we are, the less we have to moan about where is ff8 etc :) then you will see an improvement of mainly thanks cos ppl may sometimes get a surprise like an out of the blue title or dlc when the check the heads up still

Roballums 26 November, 2009 @ 5:46 pm   288

Come on Mike, you’ve ignored this question at least three times. Is there only one MUA 2 DLC pack? If you guys forgot the Juggernaut then at least say so. I’ve been waiting for this thing since it was announced, it was supposed to be released two weeks ago, one week after the US, you guys couldn’t find it in the system or something so we waited for two weeks, now the day is here and you’ve at least posted the main pack, but are we gonna have to wait even longer for the Juggernaut or what?
(Don’t worry, I won’t get all mental at you guys, at least not on these forums ;) )

Skookie30 what are the new movies?

Scourgewood are you going to get it?

Stoney_101 26 November, 2009 @ 5:52 pm   291


Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 5:53 pm   292

All i know the latest films layout look different then last weeks

i do hope they add the dates like they do with games it would help alot. ;)

Scuffy_P 26 November, 2009 @ 5:55 pm   293

@ Canand
Regarding you PS2 question, unfortunately we’ll never see any of the great titles from that extensive catalogue. The only PS3’s that are capable of running PS2 software are the now, illusive ’60 gig’ models.

Since then, some moron….sorry, ‘accountant’ thought it would be better to save the money from not licensing and installing the emulation tools within future PS3 units, than actually make money by selling the emulated games on PSN. I’m sure the immediate savings were notable, but nothing compared to the money Sony could’ve made in the long run.

So now, in a pathetic attempt to lessen the sting from this embarrassing mess, Sony continue to sell PS1 games to the public via PSN. But in such a way, as to pretend this was their intent all along. Simply put, Sony don’t have to outlay any money in order to enable the PS3 to emulate the PS1 (any sale is pure profit).

But stood against Microsofts XBL “Games on Demand” service, Sony’s “PS1 Classics”, is looking even more pathetic. Big mistake Sony.

HIYAAAAAA!!!!!!! errrrm ye so i was wandering whats going on with the marvel ultimate alliance 2 dlc coz there was a delay on it or something and it was delayed to today so i was wandering if you could tell me what time it will be on the store today. TAAA MIKE!!!!

Scourgewood 26 November, 2009 @ 5:57 pm   295

Done. Reminds me of “The Chaos Engine”

samplane123 26 November, 2009 @ 5:58 pm   296

Yes, it’s not the best update but it’s nice to know you guys are trying to become more committed to communicating with the community.

is any1 guna answer my question ?

Vergis69 26 November, 2009 @ 6:02 pm   298

Question/s : Why is the EU store always short of things like videos and even better.. wallpapers for various games when compared to the US?. I cant see why “Localization” is a problem when you seem to have the ability to release different updates for the various regions of the EU.

Like the Modern Warfare 2 wallpapers on the US store as an example? and the multiplayer trailer?.. considering its the fastest selling game in history you would have thought SCEE would have made an effort for it.

Maybe its down to the publishers? Even so…why US only? and again… why only the *ahem* Xbox360? *washes mouth out*.

Just seems we get about 60% of content when compared to other regions. I think its about time we knew why.


When will F1 2009 be up on the psp store? Got a pspgo and im dyin to play it!

VictorAnalogy 26 November, 2009 @ 6:03 pm   300

I for one don’t expect a huge amount of content every week. I think it is quite rare that there is absolutely nothing on the store that I want to download in a week. You can’t all have run out of stuff to do.

In the words of a Terry Pratchett:

You had to hand it to human beings. They had one of the strangest powers in the universe. No other species anywhere in the world had invented boredom. Perhaps it was boredom, not intelligence, that had propelled them up the evolutionary ladder…that strange ability to look at the universe and think ‘oh, the same as yesterday, how dull. I wonder what happens if I bang this rock on that head?

what time will the marvel ultimate alliance 2 dlc going to be on the ps store today ?

Swede_78 26 November, 2009 @ 6:05 pm   302

Thanks for the update!

Minus 2 Euros in Italy for the Fallout DLC? Talk about elite prices for “certain” countries, huh?

Philip99 26 November, 2009 @ 6:11 pm   304

Is that…is that a trailer for The Last Guardian I see? On thank you Sony, finally! You’ve listened to my prayers and answered them! Kaz Hirai be praised!

lewigi2012 26 November, 2009 @ 6:11 pm   305

About time we got Borderlands DLC. Should have been released Tuesday ¬¬

AaronSOLDIER 26 November, 2009 @ 6:13 pm   306

Namco Museum Essentials?

Crash Bandicoot 2?


twistedintoform 26 November, 2009 @ 6:14 pm   307

” would love this blog 2 have the headline.

please explain how this would help?. SCEA don’t even remotely offer the same content in its *three* countries (US, Can, Mex), how would it manage with 29?


movies store updated with 20 new films not 50 as scee andrew house said . u can only rent 3 out the 20 films lmao why did u bother with movies store scee 11.99 to buy only for new releases is a complete failure

TUCKA4EVA 26 November, 2009 @ 6:20 pm   310

Finally real content this week :P.

Borderlands DLC for me, also get a free dragonball pack i wasnt expecting that.

I thought the Fallout 3 DLC was already on the store? i bought it when it was released.

twistedintoform 26 November, 2009 @ 6:21 pm   311

“Like the Modern Warfare 2 wallpapers on the US store as an example? and the multiplayer trailer?.. considering its the fastest selling game in history you would have thought SCEE would have made an effort for it. Maybe its down to the publishers? Even so…why US only? and again… why only the *ahem* Xbox360? *washes mouth out*.”

microsoft paid activision a lot of money for exclusive MW2 content and a timed exclusive on map packs. the first two maps will be available for sometime before PSN.

looking at the first week sales, more copies were sold on the xbox in the US, than on the PS3 worldwide. (and the UK alone accounted for almost half of all PS3 sales outside the US!)

Quinlank 26 November, 2009 @ 6:22 pm   312

Decent update, will get the Uncharted motion comic 2 and Dracula for PSP. Possibly the Ninja Gaiden 2 DLC at some point. Much better week than Xbox Live this week I have to say, especially on the movie store front. Good to see the video store starting so strong with it’s selection.

Wildsleven 26 November, 2009 @ 6:26 pm   313

mike i dont think we all expect massive releases of content,

most of us would be VERY happy if we got something we actually wanted…


thing is though u can rent new films releases on xbox live u cant on ps3 11.99 to buy only for new releases which defeats purpose of movies store . people want to rent then maybe buy

Stryfe84 26 November, 2009 @ 6:26 pm   315

Hi Mike, just wanted to ask (sorry if it’s been asked before). Does SCEE set the prices for content in the store or is it set by the respective distributer? Taking a few examples off the store for the downloadable psp games compared to buying the games from including the case, manual and delivery.

Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier
PSN Store – £21.99 – £17.99

Star Wars: Battlefront – Elite Squadron
PSN Store – £31.99 – £24.99

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
PSN Store – £29.99 – £24.99

WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2010
PSN Store – £31.99 – £24.99 + Exclusive ‘The Rock’ In-Game Character Unlock Code

Marvel Super Hero Squad
PSN Store – £29.99 – £17.99

LittleBigPlanet PSP
PSN Store – £21.99 – £17.99

NBA Live 10
PSN Store – £31.99 – £24.99

Stryfe84 26 November, 2009 @ 6:27 pm   316

The video store is just as bad taking an example of an old film that really shouldn’t cost much:

Leon (Standard Definition)
PSN Store – £11.99 £5 (Directors Cut)or £10.99 (Blu Ray Directors Cut)

I know your not responsible for the video store but thought it worth highlighting the prices are too expensive across the whole store.

PS1 games for £3.49-£3.99 but when a proper ‘classic’ is released its £7.99 or £13.99 as with todays Breath of Fire III.

I’d love to download Breath of Fire III but i brought the disc (although second hand) for less than that including delivery.

Is FF& and MGS more expensive because they where originally multiple discs therefore large dowloads? If so how come BOF III is even more expensive being 1 disc?

I’d love to use the PSN store a lot more but it’s just too expensive, I wouldn’t pay those prices in shops but luckily most shops are cheaper.

I admit there are a few gems to be found in there and some psp stuff is cheaper than but there majoroty of the store is pretty overpriced. Is there any reason for this?

Marky264 26 November, 2009 @ 6:29 pm   317

Not pleased at all that F1 2009 is not on again this weeks store update again…….

Mike last week you said you did not know why this is. Have you received anymore more news regarding this? please post if you do, Many thanks

Scourgewood is it any good?

Deadpool_NL 26 November, 2009 @ 6:30 pm   319

i cant download the dragonball raging blast pack 1 ?
please help

Skookie30 26 November, 2009 @ 6:31 pm   320

Heads Up ppl the store is Now live!! :D

Scuffy_P 26 November, 2009 @ 6:32 pm   321

I’d be happy if the updates could happen at a regular time. “Sometime on Thursaday” is not particularly professional now is it? I’m sorry to use the ‘M’ word, but I don’t have this problem from Microsoft on Wednesday.

And now Sony are even daring to contemplate “charging” it’s customers for the use of PSN!!!! Seriously! If Sony can’t manage its Playstation Network for free, how is adding the pressure of ‘paid subscription’ going to make PSN better? Not forgetting the fact Sony would’ve lied to us AGAIN, by initially promising PSN would always be free.

You need to get people who understand gamers into the decision process, and not accountants who’ve never even played a PS3.

Sort out a regular update time, instead of messaging everyone about (it’s not as if you guys don’t know it’s coming).

aalekevin 26 November, 2009 @ 6:33 pm   322

i cant download the dragonball pack nethier it just says “This content cannot be downloaded”

Scourgewood 26 November, 2009 @ 6:37 pm   323

canand: I’ll get back to you on that one tomorrow bud. :)

Pigoldino91 26 November, 2009 @ 6:43 pm   324

No Final Fantasy VIII this week??Can you tell something about it??

Quinlank 26 November, 2009 @ 6:46 pm   325

“thing is though u can rent new films releases on xbox live u cant on ps3 11.99 to buy only for new releases which defeats purpose of movies store . people want to rent then maybe buy”

Movies generate higher numbers at retail than they do at rental when released, so clearly you don’t have a clue what “people” want.


@328 think ull find last week i praised the update so do pipe down . why is it fanboys always say trolls lol sad tbh


@329 yea people clearly want 11.99 downloads then when ps3 breaks u lose all ur films bought even if u back them up and put them onto another ps3 as it says invalid protection . lol i see u havent bought off movies store lmao yet u think u knw everythn

mike3648 26 November, 2009 @ 6:53 pm   328

Brooklyn-Rage64 26 November, 2009 @ 7:25 pm   336

Wow so are SCEE actually going to fix the DB raging blast DLC or what? [DELETED]!!!

likescake 26 November, 2009 @ 7:32 pm   337

MGS for NZ store coming?

vicentecarro 26 November, 2009 @ 7:35 pm   338

Are you going to fix today the missing Operation Flashpoint DLC?

hedges1001 26 November, 2009 @ 7:40 pm   339

k guys stop asking for ff tactics as a ps1 classic,
1) it never had an eu ps1 release back in 97 anyway.
2) uhh square enix + dlc = no hope in hell
3) ask for the psp game instead.

and a suggestion to mike. i know how long it takes to localise a game. i study games tech at uni. but for those who dont know why not post a comprehensive walkthrough of the process and time limits that way others will finally know why game “x” has been delayed due to localisation issues.


Some of you people should be ashamed.

Weekly we keep getting stuff some free some priced, some cheap some expensive. Instead of people being happy that they give us stuff, they only complaign.

Do i need L&S?? no, but i will not complaign, there will be people that want it or will be happy about it. I dont need stuff like all those songs for rockband either, i will not complaign.

There have been weeks that i havent bought a single thing from the store, that i waited for a patch, so what? They are working on it, they give us updates and others stuff.

Asking about stuff other stores have is futile to, Mike has nothing to do what Japan, usa or even the seperate stores in europe have, i know demos being released on UK only stores not in my store. Should i complaign to mike about that?…


I know people using multiple accounts, who have AD hoc from japan, and been playing for months now with their friends, and buy software from us store. If u want something u can get it.

Complaigning about credit cards is not an option, its something that is been done for everything. It is not sony’s fault u can’t get your hands on one.

Mike, i apreciate your work here on the blog and have respect for the way u handle ureself. I work with customers every day to in my job, and somethimes they can push you to the limit, showing u no respect at all. but dont forget u do a GREAT job here.


BiosNova 26 November, 2009 @ 7:44 pm   342

Hey Mike

While wading through all these comments i hope you see this because i just have a small question.

I noticed that MGS has a nice boarder around the icon, marking it as a PS1 Classic, but the PS1 Classic out today does not. Will this boarder only be used for the more… “elite” PS1 games or was it a one time thing with MGS?


BTW i think you guys who manage the store do a goo job, i know i moan sometimes (who doesn’t) but overall i appreciate what you guys do every week for us

hedges1001 26 November, 2009 @ 7:49 pm   343

@316 BoF 3 is 13.99 ‘cos its a psp game [DELETED]. thats why its in the psp section and not ps1 section


Why didn’t we get the DJ Hero David Guerra Mix Pack? It’s on the US PSN and the US and UK XBL. What’s going on?

tekkenism 26 November, 2009 @ 7:55 pm   345

i totally agree with you.

HiddenAway 26 November, 2009 @ 7:56 pm   346

@ 315 (Stryfe84)

Publishers set the price.

@ 334 (Dutch_Rootsman)

Square-Enix made an error and re-sent copies of the newsletter with that release date. The new newsletter now says “Coming Soon”

@ Mike (the boxer) :)

Super Fruitfall wasn’t in your original listings but I see it in Media Go. Have you pushed it up too early or did the late news publish mean you forgot about it?

Still waiting for Final Fantasy 8…

Surprised my patience has lasted this long.

Onna76_NL 26 November, 2009 @ 8:09 pm   348

“PSone (emulated for PS3 and PSP)

* Lilo and Stitch: Trouble in Paradise (£3.99/€4.99) Rating: PEGI 3+”

OW common!!! How pathetic can it be?! That’s the second joke classic we’re getting. Where are MGS, FFVIII, RE2, Suikoden, Gex 1 and 3 etc.etc.etc?!

And where the “f” is the trophy patch for Disgaea 3 Nippon Ichi, which you’ve promised to launch in Autumn.

pantelis_vaan 26 November, 2009 @ 8:18 pm   349

Please hurry up with the Final Fantasy VIII update. i have been waiting for it the last month, and i am starting to believe that it wont come till 2010. Just tell us if it is going to be up before Christmas

twistedintoform 26 November, 2009 @ 8:18 pm   350

“Since then, some moron….sorry, ‘accountant’ thought it would be better to save the money from not licensing and installing the emulation tools within future PS3 units, than actually make money by selling the emulated games on PSN. I’m sure the immediate savings were notable, but nothing compared to the money Sony could’ve made in the long run”.

PS2 compatibility on the old 60gb models is done via hardware (on the US/JP models) and via a combined hardware+software solution on the PAL models. it was dropped in order to remove the PS2 components from the manufacture of the PS3 at a significant saving. the 60gb model had manufacturing costs of $850 and being sold retail at $600. it’s ridiculous to think that was even remotely sustainable for the longterm viability of the platform. the majority of people buy a PS3 for new HD-gaming and if it means ditching last-gen in order to fund new game development, they’d do it.

post 350
you better count on growing old waiting with the releases it is putting out it won’t be out before 2020 or should i say ps4.

hedges1001 26 November, 2009 @ 8:20 pm   352

@351 NIS said in a blog post a while back that the D3 trophy patch is coming dec 09 earliest (winter 09/10 to be exact)

Where’s the DJ Hero David Guetta pack?
The US store already has it, so where’s the european version?
The in-game message tells me that the pack is available, but it’s not.
Will we get it next week?

Ton_Capone 26 November, 2009 @ 8:29 pm   354

Very poor.
Very poor indeed.

Philip99 26 November, 2009 @ 8:31 pm   355

I take back what I said about the Last Guardian trailer – we wanted the good E3 one, not this short TGS thing. Not only that, but there’s a mistake in the subs which turn Fumito Ueda into Fumiti Ueda.

Scourgewood 26 November, 2009 @ 8:35 pm   356

*please do not feed the trolls*

danmann861 26 November, 2009 @ 8:40 pm   357

Hey Mike

Is there any word on Final Fantasy Dissidia coming to the store?

Blasteroids 26 November, 2009 @ 8:40 pm   358

I guess Mike went home early for a change :)

Scourgewood 26 November, 2009 @ 8:43 pm   359

Don’t blame him really, poor guy’s taking a fair bit of flak lately.


vidzone dont work

Stryfe84 26 November, 2009 @ 9:09 pm   361

@ 349 (HiddenAway)

Ta, been wondering that for a while. I’d love to use the PSN store more i love the whole download at home thing and look forward to see where it goes in the future but most for me it’s still mostly too expensive. Video store prices in particular are crazy.

@ 346 (hedges1001)

Good point, I did write it from the point of view of the ps1 game but the copy of it I brought was the psp one (admittedly second hand) for 3 or 4 quid cheaper than it is on the psn store. Fair point though it’s pretty fair for a psp game.

All in all stuff generally seems overpriced. I’d have thought by not having packaging and physical distribution costs the downloadable version of a game would naturally be cheaper. Can anyone confirm if this is a false assumption or is the price set completley disregarding that?

Ta for the feedback, not having a go here I really like the psn store just some contsructive feedback with evidence of cheaper products to highlight that more people would perhaps use the store where the prices more in line with retail prices.

Would be nice to have the most popular ps1 classics such as FF7 and MGS and no doubt other FF games maybe RE games for the same prices as the other ps1 classics.

halfaworldaway 26 November, 2009 @ 9:13 pm   362

2 weeks in a row now the Rock Band DLC has not shown up, last week was supossed to be AFI & the Bangles(showed up today), and this week was supposed to be Tom Petty(where is it?)

Why does PS3 & Xbox in the USA have these packs but only the Xbox in Europe have these tracks?


So I’ve been diligently reading the ‘Heads Up’ part of this blog for the past weeks, faithfully reading every comment and reply (which gets boring quite quickly) and the main (if not only) reason for the lack of content in the EU seems to be that the wanted content is not submitted to SCEE by their respective publishers. Which means Mike and by extent SCEE and SCE are blameless.

Now, a lot of people want these PSone Classics -that much is obvious- and localisation of new games shouldn’t take too much time (we’re not asking for translations and the games in the US store work fine on my PS3). The basic message is: Hey publisher we have money and we want stuff to spend it on, what company can resist that? So the only remaining reason for the lack of games in the EU PSN store is a general unawareness of our “plight”. Is there perhaps a way we can collectively bring our whishes to the attention of the big “evil” publishers?

Maybe SCEE can help us here, if even a little. After all, we are just small people and Sony happens to be a big company too, those tend to get a bit more attention.

Just a (somewhat incoherent) thought.

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 8:31 am    

    They’re certainly not big evil publishers they do give us content after all ;) – we do ask them to release as much content as possible, but they won’t necessarily give us the reasons behind their decisions if they decide not to, or they have issues which causes delays.

twistedintoform 26 November, 2009 @ 9:23 pm   364

woohoo.. planet minigolf (beta) this week for me! :P

serendipiddy 26 November, 2009 @ 9:24 pm   365

Comet crash demo :D

When the ps3 comes back from repair i think you’ll find me absorbed in that.

Thanks for the update mike! Enjoy the rest of your week :)

hedges1001 26 November, 2009 @ 9:31 pm   366

@364 whilst there is a slightly lower costs on dlc the download market still returns at a lower rate than physical media so to offset the costs publishers tend to hike the price

cheekyone82 26 November, 2009 @ 9:46 pm   367

Mike….i know your doing your best and you can only tell us what you’re ALLOWED to tell us. apologies for the flak people are giving you….can you at least let us know if FFVIII WILL come out this year?

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 8:29 am    

    I doubt it’ll be this year now…but it is still coming, that much I can say at the moment.


sorry bt if u work in a big company and get the hump when people complain then go work in a nursery or something

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 8:28 am    

    I really hope you’re not aiming that at me. As if I’ve got the hump – I have a lot of other work to do than just communicating with people on the blog.

    Doing a weekly blog update was never in my job description, it’s something I volunteered for, and now do as part of my weekly role – however much I love doing it, and enjoy reading through feedback left here, there’s only so much one man can read before needing to get back to his other duties. I cannot spend all my time on the blog reading comments, I’m sorry, but that’s the truth.

    I can certainly take the heat from you lot that’s not an issue at all, it’s only words after all, and words said from behind a screen are much different than ones said to my face ;)

hyperslug 26 November, 2009 @ 10:05 pm   369

After a week in MGS heaven it’s back to disney “classics”

But a good flow of PSP titles :)

+1 to cheekybone82 comment number 370

Dutch_Rootsman 26 November, 2009 @ 10:23 pm   371

Hello Mike,

With the release of the PSPgo, a digital download only iteration of a console with an ample software library customer expectation is, and rightly should be that said software library is available from the get go. This is not a conventional retail channel, and the PSPgo is not a conventional console. I can’t just wonder down to EB or Kmart when I want a game, I have to wait for SCEE to release it on the PSN Store.

Stop moaning just because people who have purchased a PSPgo (like myself) have the expectation that SCEE will deliver a diverse offering of games, applications etc to use with their premium console. There are 100s of games created in the past (PSone Classics and PSP games)or currently being released through conventional retail channels that could be released on the PSN store for consumption.

Kind regards,


PS. Where the hell is Vagrant Story?

Dutch_Rootsman 26 November, 2009 @ 10:29 pm   372

@366 my sentiments exactly, fantastic post

PS. Sorry for double posting and while I am it…. Where the hell is Vagrant Story?

Bacon_Crispies 26 November, 2009 @ 10:29 pm   373

Just looked on the American store, after getting Res 2 and Soul Reaver last week what do they get this week? Dino Crisis, lets just say I’m glad no young children were around when I saw that, the words coming out of my mouth were not kind.

Arlanthir 26 November, 2009 @ 10:38 pm   374

Nice, we’ve got Search Function in Portugal! :D

TyrantGer 26 November, 2009 @ 10:42 pm   375

WOOOOW!!! We get “Lilo and Stitch: Trouble in Paradise” while the US Store gets “Dino Crisis”!!!

A simply brilliant update, Mike! What’ll we get next week? “Arthur!: Ready to Race”?

HarryTheHaddock 26 November, 2009 @ 10:51 pm   376


Where is the David Guetta DJ Hero content for us in UK?

Its on US store but not ours not even mentioned?


Where is the DJ Hero David Guetta DLC? Why is it on Xbox Live Marketplace in the UK but not on the UK PSN?

The US got the DJ Hero DLC today though. They never get shafted like we do. I paid more for DJ Hero than they did (£170, $280) but I have to wait for the DLC? How is that fair?

Maelstorm85 26 November, 2009 @ 11:04 pm   378

Lilo & Stitch a classic Psone?

Bhuauauauua Sony FAIL

twistedintoform 26 November, 2009 @ 11:33 pm   379

“Lilo & Stitch a classic Psone?
Bhuauauauua Sony FAIL”

why is it so hard for people to grasp that sony would like to have a console which appeals to as wide a demographic as possible, including people with young families?!?. there is a 27million user install base, they’re not all die-hard been-gaming-for-20-years uber-vociferous internet geeks. do you write to london studios and ask them why they bothered to develop eyepet, for example? disney is a huge franchise appealing to families, why wouldn’t they submit it if they can?. so it’s a not a game for your tastes.. get over it. don’t question its place on the store.

Thanks. As a PSP owner, another fantastic update. This week and last week have been great. Although I have the new problem of not being able to play my games quick enough ;)

Thanks Mike and everyone at SCEE!!

FFObsessed 26 November, 2009 @ 11:45 pm   381

I hope after Metal Gear Solid we won’t have to wait another 5 months for a decent PSone game when the US store gets them almost weekly…


Mega-naut 26 November, 2009 @ 11:58 pm   382

Any chance of some new Dynamic themes like AFRIKA? Or even some new avatars?

It can’t be that hard to upload these small things?

Dudley0Neill 27 November, 2009 @ 12:00 am   383

Hey Mike,

Any news on Metal Gear Solid coming to New Zealand. Seems odd that every country in the world has it now bar New Zealand. Is it because the game contains scenes of Nuclear Weapons?
Some actual feedback would be appreciated.

PS Why doesn’t the US store have all the Disney “Classic” games? Again, seems odd that a distributor as large as Disney, does not yet want to distribute in the USA.

Blasteroids 27 November, 2009 @ 12:09 am   384

@365 I think the DLC is delayed due to the stupid pricing about at the moment for the track packs.

Mike, if you read this in the morning. Just a heads up on next weeks track packs. 3 x 99p songs they are attempting to sell for £3.99!!

Get ready with that reject button :)


Maybe I should just return my PS3 copy of DJ Hero and get the 360 version. At least then I won’t have to wait for the DLC.

Wildsleven 27 November, 2009 @ 1:46 am   386

i understand sony wants to release games that suits everyone so how about giving us (at least) TWO ps1 games: one CLASSIC and if you guys really wanted to… a disney game for the kids and family.

not too much to ask for really!

kizalini 27 November, 2009 @ 1:53 am   387

Ever thought about making a new blog section for adults… then people like us can talk sense, and leave these children to talk about things they know nothing about!
Or best of all, cancel the blog bit all together. Just advise on the update each week.
It seems that people don’t realise, all this is done for FREE. This blog, the store update, demos etc. If you have the other console, you will know that they get £39.99 from each user in their budget, so maybe their service is slightly better… but me for one, and many other ADULTS, don’t complain about this.
Do you also realise that you who complain, and also have moaned about the possibility of Sony charging for online services, are the one’s that are making Sony contemplate this ???
You are the people who complain about people not answering (who are trying to get the content on store), and then complain because it’s late!!
At the end of the day, we get this service for FREE.
All you need is patience, and the content will come. There is no way any company would with-hold goods if there wasn’t a good excuse.

kizalini 27 November, 2009 @ 2:02 am   388

OK, I shouldn’t have mentioned about the other console company having a better service… cos I seem to remember many demo’s failing on me after downloading; and having to download them 4 or 5 times. Never happened on PSNetwork. As mentioned before, and as I understand; Sony have a strict procedure to ensure no bugs are put on the store, to ensure nothing like the above happens.
I have full respect to all the people who make these blogs, and appreciate what they do. There is no way they should be put under such pressure by impatient, arrogant people.
If the criticism was constructive, and items were mentioned once (not repeated 10 times like on this blog) then it would make this blog site much better.
At the moment, it is like an Anti-Sony war going on; like they’re purposely with-holding content … which it turn would reduce contribution for Sony … why would they do that??

Dutch_Rootsman 27 November, 2009 @ 3:13 am   389

@ 391/2 – Why don’t you ask Vicarious Visions?

Hahahahahahaha MUA2 DLC will be the evidence in the argument as to whether SCEE withholds content for years to come.

Also, people do not have to pay for Xbox Live updates, demos etc. They have to pay for multiplayer but that is beside the point. Xbox Live Marketplace and the PSN Stores are points of difference, if Sony wants more people to buy a PS3 then they need to offer a steady stream of quality content on the store. Physical media will be round for ages, but each company has learned that sticking their finger in the virtual pie yields results.

Just because we complain does not mean we are childish or stupid, granted sometimes we could articulate ourselves better but once again beside the point. We complain because the PAL PSN Store delivers below consumer expectations. Until it meets or exceeds expectations please expect more complaining.

PS. Where the hell is Vagrant Story

Hey Mike, lotta rude comments people been sayin’, hopefully that’s the last of ‘em. You probably stopped reading a few pages back, but I’m going to add in the way you started your post, have a good week Mike Kebby.

And yes I realise that sounds like a lot of broken English, but it’s more fun that way. Be good!

Borderlands DLC, yay :D.

nothing against you mike but whats with the kiddy PS1 updates latley?
SCEE does realize there are people above the age of 10 that would like to play some ps1 classics.
US gets command and conquer, oddworld abes oddessy, oddworld abes exodous, pandemonium, resident evil, resident evil 2.
and what do we get?
whinnie the pooh and lilo and stitch.
i mean come on, why does the US always get the good stuff.
why do we always get the short end of the stick?
no wonder 99% of people have a US PSN account.
also why are games smaller on the US PSN than the AU PSN?
crash bandicoot 3 for example on the US PSN its 180MB on the AU its over 300MBs.

StefNighthawk 27 November, 2009 @ 8:22 am   396

@366, Communication is a two-way street.
SCEE should not wait until a publisher comes to them to put their back-catalogue of PSOne games on PSN.
SCEE could easily convince the publishers to put the titles on PSN by way of incentives.
It seems Disney is the only publishers who found its way onto the European PSN.

And what’s with Silent Hill, Crash Bandicoot 2 and some others who were put on the store for a very brief moment.
How long does it take to get the permission to put them back on the store or to fix the issues those games have.
My copy of Crash Bandicoot 2 works fine by the way.

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 8:35 am    

    I’ve repeaetedly said we have been working behind the scenes to get more onto the store, you won’t see the fruits of such labours straight away (and sometimes hard work doesn’t always get repaid with content unfortunately) but just because I am not on here every week telling you everything we’ve been doing all week doesn’t mean we are not working on projects.

    There are LOTS of things you don’t see us doing, that doesn’t mean we aren’t doing though.

    I would LOVE to give you all everything you want, EVERY week, but I have to manage your expectations and say this will not always be the case, we are reliant on content being submitted to us, we don’t own the rights to 3rd party content so we cannot realease anything until we have a submission, and it’s been verified, has passed QA, and is fit and raring to go.

MobileTone 27 November, 2009 @ 8:41 am   397

Mike Kebby, i’ve just run out of toilet paper.
i blame Sony for this y’know.

i demand you make toilet paper available on the
EU Store, America has had it for weeks now.

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 9:27 am    

    I’m so sorry MobileTone, I’ll send someone to your home address right away to rectify the matter for you – you never need do it manually again!! :P

MobileTone 27 November, 2009 @ 8:45 am   398


i am so close to getting lv50, less than 100,000xp to go.

and thanks to the guys who have been joining in my open
multiplayer games this last week. don’t become Skag bait.

Scourgewood 27 November, 2009 @ 8:59 am   399

MobileTone: ROFL!

Mike, maybe we should let you have a one to one with all the non-believers. lol

mnemonic-dk 27 November, 2009 @ 9:05 am   400

I cannot find the “Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Official Trailer” in the danish PSP store?

Am I right to assume that it should be under other media/game videos?


Alright, first off Mike let me clarify that I didn’t mean SCEE should take more responsibility in going out and getting publishers to submit content, I really didn’t. i also didn’t mean to insult big companies by calling them evil, I am ever so sorry for that.

I just had a brilliant/insane idea. There are 10 million+ European PS3 owners right? Why don’t we all buy Gravity Crash (User generated content actually makes it fun to own), and then we all make 12 levels. Make sure they take about two minutes to finnish. That will give us 20.000.000 minutes of gameplay, roughly 333334 hours. We all play at least half of these, and until we have, we don’t look at new PSN updates. Then, when we’re done, there will be a mountain of new stuff for us all to play.

Of course you can replace Gravity Crash with any number of “Old” games that you haven’t played yet. Seriously peolpe, there are so many great games out there, I doubt anyone has already dowloaded and completed all the games on the PSN that they would enjoy playing…….

Onna76_NL 27 November, 2009 @ 9:44 am   402

I’m glad Vidzone finally arrived in Holland, really love it! Can you also request songs?

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 9:47 am   403

Codemasters said on there forums that OFP:DR DLC would be out yesterday, and that it was confirmed by Sony…

So i’ll ask again: Where is the DLC??
Is it delayed due to localization issues like things always are!!
And don’t say it was not submitted because CM says it is..

vicentecarro 27 November, 2009 @ 10:28 am   404

Mike, please, choose one :)

Operation flashpoint DLC is not in the store, but…
a- it will be available next week
b- it will be available today
c- you can not give us a release date.

stevie_buzz 27 November, 2009 @ 10:37 am   405


Codemasters said that F1 09 would be available at launch as a download from the PSN store; but no sign :(. As a PSP Go adopter I was really anticipating the release. Is there any word on when it will be available?


Pigoldino91 27 November, 2009 @ 11:02 am   406

Final Fantasy VIII arrive before end of december?

Would you care to enlighten us as to why the status of Final Fantasy 8 has changed from “I would say weeks rather than months” in October to “I doubt it’ll be this year now…” today?

Thinking ahead, that changes would probably be better for me personally, but I am just curious. I’m sure others are aswell :p

Cypherous 27 November, 2009 @ 11:15 am   408

So mike any update on ad-hoc party, it wasn’t mentioned and i’ve not checked the store but i would assume its not there if not listed, any idea when we will see it because all sources on the net stated EU release this month alongside the US release so whats the delay?

Cypherous 27 November, 2009 @ 11:18 am   409

@411 given that FF8 is still the only PS1 game i have that won’t run i would think its something they are having issues with, you can barely get a US copy working on a custom firmware enabled PSP but it crashes way too often, thankfully they got games like FF7 working and my mate brought round a bag of PS1 games and none of them seemed to have issues working, there appears to be some pointers that FF8 had a unique form of copy protection in it which is apparantly to blame for issues getting it to work, although thats only what i read.

Well done for keeping us informed and up to date as usual Mike, much appreciated.

I dont understand the constant requests for PSone this and that, PSone games on the PS3 are a let-down, stick to next-gen gaming or dust off the PSone, I’d much rather the team @ PSN were working on some proper content.

People asking ‘where’s the DLC for xxxx’ etc, why don’t you read the blog, if it’s there it’s there, if not try next week if it’s near/past release date.

Please answer Mike, When/WIll F1 2009 be available on the store? Lots of people want to know this. Thanks

tekkenism 27 November, 2009 @ 12:19 pm   412

Where is Tekken 2? The #1 PsOne Classic!

Scourgewood 27 November, 2009 @ 1:19 pm   413

tekkenism: Surely you jest. There are better games for the PS1 than Tekken2.

Thanks for the update.

Any ideas if we will get anymore of the Lego series back catalogue on PSN for download? eg Lego Star Wars, Batman etc. and the upcoming Lego Harry Potter ?

Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 2:21 pm   415

CONTENT UPDATE – DJ Hero David Guetta Mix Pack 01 will be released later today.

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 2:27 pm   416

I’ll ask again: What about OFP:DR DLC?

A answer would be nice even if it says “I don’t know”
Sony told Codemasters it would be up yesterday…

ericscolon 27 November, 2009 @ 2:38 pm   417

we dont need no final fantasies, there is 12 already take a pick besides 8 & 9 werent that good. With that said how about getting us Xenogears instead, its so much more fun to play.

ProphetOfRage 27 November, 2009 @ 3:04 pm   418

Too expensive and shockingly bad.


threat was it there mikey sayn i wouldnt say that to ur face lmfao ok then . pathetic

Ygdrasille 27 November, 2009 @ 3:51 pm   420

So, what about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC pack, that had been excluded from a number of countries? Will it become available in the corresponding Stores eventually, or is its absence a permanent matter? Thanks in advance for the answer.

Scourgewood 27 November, 2009 @ 4:12 pm   421

ericscolon: Have to agree with you there bud, not played much of it, but it’s very good. :)

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 4:19 pm   422

Next week for OFP DLC DAM!
Oh well i got a reply at last…

It was supposed to be here weeks ago! Why could we not get it today?
Or early next week! You don’t always have to wait until Thursdays do you?

DOM_PNE33 27 November, 2009 @ 4:30 pm   423

any news on f-1 2009? u seem not to answer anyone about it? are you just avioding the question? bought a psp go at luch and one of the games i wanted was this yet a week after release i still can not play.any idea when it will be available?


mike u shouldnt have said what u did in the 1st place abt sayn stuff to ur face lol and slaggn off customers sayn abt moon brigade . what are u thinking SERIOUSLY u need sacking if this is way u respond to customers

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 4:58 pm    

    I think you’re taking things out of context, really you are.

    Let’s swap roles for a day and see how you do ;)


if u struggle with ur job . ill ask seriously why are u there mike i dnt mean that in a bad way bt if it tets on top off u that much were u resort to being snappy with complaining customers and resort to slaggn off then i think u need a different job coz personally you cant handle it by looks of it

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:10 pm    

    If you read my comments you will see that this is not my job role, this is something I have taken on as extra.

    Also, after many months of doing this and responding to people nicely so far, I may sometimes be a bit more to the point on occasions, but never rude, and never ‘slaggn off’ – that’s your perception, but not the case.

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 5:06 pm   426

I think you’re doing okay i just wanted a answer to my question..
People should be happy for all replys US does not have as many as we do…

I like the features on the PS3 that has been implemented after initial release… It’s all a bonus(at least for release PS3 buyers).
But i do like to have steady release date’s and EU region has been terrible at it… Localization issues beeing the perp most of the time!

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:12 pm    

    Thank you – I think I go above and beyond with the level of commitment to comments I give – I could easily just fall back and respond to one or two a week, but I don’t want, I want to be here actively engaging with you all.

    Sometimes I may not have an immediate answer, or cannot say anything at all, so sometimes I’ll pass on responding – I wish I had time to respond to every comment but I don’t, sorry.

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:09 pm   427

mike is it true about ff8 is gonna be next year now? please say its a joke :( as you said weeks rather than months i know things change but seriously fight tooth and nail for this one for us :(

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:16 pm    

    It’s had issues in the QA process, nothing we can do about that one I’m afraid. We want the game to launch without problems, so it has to go back through QA again hence the hold up.


just another note the complaining customers do abt ps1 games especially are 100 % rightly due as sony have a console yet the biggest buyers e.u get treated the worst, store , home and now video store scee are alienating sony fans like myself so much i actually traded in 1 of my ps3s to get a xbox 360 the other day and thats something i thought id never do bt scee lack of stuff for us is to pathetic now especially after 3 yrs into ps3

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:13 pm    

    I have no issue with people leaving feedback – just sometimes it gets a bit personal, that’s what I take exception to.

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:14 pm   429

mike is it true about ff8 is gonna be next year now? please say its a joke as you said weeks rather than months i know things change but seriously fight tooth and nail for this one for us

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 5:15 pm   430

Well i just want an answer, i don’t care if it’s: ” I dont know”
I had to write the question 4-5times before i got a reply (not good) other’s wrote about it to(OFP:DR DLC).

I dont think it’s easy to be a blog puching ball!
Keep it up you’re better than the US Blog!

Ygdrasille 27 November, 2009 @ 5:16 pm   431

Well, I suppose it’s pointless to ask here. :\


ok fair enough mike bt denying u sayn moon brigade is out in force isnt a slaggn is wrong , sorry moon on a stick brigade . may have bn a joke bt still slaggn off complaining customers . maybe if scee deliverd a service like other regions that have a ps3 there wouldnt be complaining customers as much , hmmmmm

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:26 pm    

    It was mentioned on my persoanl twitter – it’s not a work twitter feed, but I welcome people to sign up to it.

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:23 pm   433

so it is true? even if i offer the team cookies? lol mike how long is the qa process usually? and if all goes well is it likely to be early January? though atleast we know now. thanks for the help.

mike do u also have an update on vagrant story?

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:25 pm   434

and seany1 werent that posted on his own personal blog non work related, he can write whatever he wants on their! mike perhaps add some protection to it, if ppl are gonna moan about a joke, even though he was right, everyone did moan about it.

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:34 pm    

    I’m considering just being a yes/no man on here from next week – I try to respond with personality and have fun with people, but sometimes it’s hard in the face of abuse.


im jusy sayn though it isnt nice mike u act like we have no reason to complain that scee provide a service like scea and scej when they clearly dont and every1 wants better from scee bt u lot just seem uninterested abt europe

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:36 pm    

    I have never said people shouldn’t complain…ever. I actively encourage feedback and respond even when moaned at directly – how many others can say the same?

    If you felt slighted in anyway I apologise, I’m not intentionally trying to upset people, but I don’t want to compromise the way I have been with you all on this blog, but if people are getting upset then I can become a very staid and beige commenter.

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 5:38 pm   436

I’ve seen that Twit!

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:38 pm   437

dont mike i atleast prefer getting answers instead of yes/no. perhaps instead of becoming yes/no as the abuse seems to start late in the blog only update for the first hour or something and leave it.and if more specific info about a title becomes available, either update the post or post it with next weeks one.

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 5:41 pm   438

Any chance for a Military Madness: Nectaris
Release date? I want it!

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:42 pm   439

o and mike any help on my previous post is welcome :)post 437. many thanks


ok lets leave it at the bt im sure u knw scee are alienating sony fans in europe with this limp treatment compared to other regions . nt directed at u bt at scee as a whole

    Mike Kebby 27 November, 2009 @ 5:45 pm    

    We’re trying to turn the tide seany1, we’ll get there I have no doubt.

    Have a good weekend (that’s goes for everyone else too).

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:42 pm   441

btw can i request an edit button lol

vicheous 27 November, 2009 @ 5:43 pm   442

I would like: A edit comment button in this blog(at least for a few min), a Stats page where i can see all my comments.. Or click anyone else name and see there posts…

BFBC2 beta keys here:

lulufeena 27 November, 2009 @ 5:46 pm   443

u too mike.

Matt_FireWire 27 November, 2009 @ 5:48 pm   444

There is always the small % that whine at everything. Shame.

You do a great job Mike, as does SCEE.

ericscolon 27 November, 2009 @ 6:19 pm   445

@ seany1
You’re not in Mike’s place so chill out, besides how many other sony members do you see answering questions as much as he does just feel lucky he gives any info at all and its not exactly thrilling to try to be nice when there are jerks complaining about everything.
Any info on Xenogears for the ps1 section?


it is mostly directed at scee as a whole nt mike as i said . i will chill now as i have a 360 and a ps3 now not just two ps3s . so im all good thanks scee can do as they wish

Scourgewood 27 November, 2009 @ 6:38 pm   447

Mike, if you start being boring I’ll cross you off my Christmas List! *huff*

halfaworldaway 27 November, 2009 @ 7:48 pm   448

2 weeks in a row now the Rock Band DLC has not shown up, last week was supossed to be AFI & the Bangles(showed up today), and this week was supposed to be Tom Petty(where is it?)

Why does PS3 & Xbox in the USA have these packs but only the Xbox in Europe have these tracks?

Now the Lego Rock Band export feature does not work for EU PS3 users.

NightHawk767 27 November, 2009 @ 8:22 pm   449

I’m sorry, but where the [DELETED] is my Braid on my EU store??! And why isn’t there a special KZ2 offer like there is on the US store? Because I would’ve totally bought it then.

hey mike try explaining the reason some games were pulled back from their release in the store they don’t need 2 go throught PEGI or localization cause they were released before without problems.

taurus82 27 November, 2009 @ 9:20 pm   451

Any idea when Revenge of the Wounded Dragons will make it’s way over here?


im sorry bt scee just have a vision to get as much money out of europe with as little content as they can . only one way this will end this blog posting articles abt games on store to spur sales lol ohh wait hasnt that happend lmao .


i know im mean bt only coz our store is crap so its deserved imho . people that defend our store and scee think abt fact europe is what is carrying the ps3 with 11.5 million consoles sold the highest of any region .

i think sony europe is trying 2 bore us 2 death with crappy disney games then delay everything cause else it would look like they woulden’t have anything 2 release through the whole year if we would compare them with the other sony like japan and america it would be like europe is like the child america the big boy and japan the wise old man, so what i am trying 2 say is sony europe needs 2 grow up and become something before it dies at young age.
and mike you may comment on this blog yet your only awnser is always the same like post 407 said.
we need content not excuses!

Dark-Rakugosha 27 November, 2009 @ 10:16 pm   455

@taurus82: I believe the game was pulled from the US release, it didn’t pass testing. Of course, it probably should have been tested BEFORE being advertised.

Amherst_Wind_4 28 November, 2009 @ 1:37 am   456

Good lord seany1, why must you put us through the horror of your spelling!? To be honest I’m shocked Mike bothered to not only respond to you in ANY way but he did it several times! Anyone who doubts Mike’s commitment should take a look at what you have forced him to read, I mean geez they’re called vowels and despite what you appear to have heard they aren’t optional.


grammar police = SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD

magmar126 28 November, 2009 @ 6:08 am   458

Good to see the DJ Hero – David Guetta Pack got released here too!

And Mike, please stay here and humor us with your comments :D
People like to complain on the internet, don’t forget there’s alot of us like me who do enjoy the content and are happy with what we get.

hey mike are you guys even fixing the problem with.
Dragon Ball Raging Blast – Warriors on Earth Pack (free) Rating: PEGI 12+
it won’t let me download it?

And there is a new a new trailer from Red Dead Redemption

Hellblazer 28 November, 2009 @ 12:28 pm   461

Shock horror they changed the PSone games logo!

I have to say though, there’s still some basic school boy graphic design problems going on week in week out i.e. white corners around thumbnails are still cropping up (where it’s supposed to be transparent against the blue BG of the content box). The Metal Gear Solid PSone thumbnail icon is a recent example. Smash Cars Playable Demo is another… and size of the white corners varies as well (eg Assasin’s Creed 2 recent video suite). You really should stick to one template for this sort of thing and remember not to actually save out the white corners. doh!!

Seriously does anyone check this stuff? I’d lose my job over something like that. Cant believe Sony’s PSN design team standards are so low.

Also, what the hell is up with only MGS1 having the new PSone icon template *which is pretty nice btw*.

This is poor. Get it sorted. It’s about having standards and consistency. Why is it taking so freaking long to establish basics here. Looking at the video store seems like you have things sorted there as far the design template for the thumbnails goes.

Jordo141 28 November, 2009 @ 1:21 pm   462

I have two questions that need addressing:

#1: When will the Rock Band DLC be back on time? Would it be possible for Europe to get the missing Tom Petty tracks + the Nirvana/Night Ranger tracks on the 3rd December?

#2: When will other European regions be getting the video store? I think this problem is particularly confusing here in Ireland. We speak English so the language barrier isn’t an excuse.

I know you SCEE guys put up with a lot of crap, but I find the above issues particularly distressing.

tekkenism 28 November, 2009 @ 2:39 pm   463

As dgnfly said,

We need content, NOT excuses!


hiya mike.
i saw that tweet, was funny actually, made me laugh.
i wouldn’t say you were wrong to say what you did on your own private twitter account, even if i thought you went too far, and i don’t
a similar comment on here while you’re posting in your official capacity would be different.
the thing is there’s a reason why there are so many complaints, and the number seems to be growing.
it’s not because people like to moan, i know some of us might but not everybody.
sure there are people who would complain whatever happens, but give those people as few legitimate complaints as possible and those complaining for the sake of it will make themselves clear.
when the only place in the world the problems arise for a certain piece of content is the scee offices, by any logical process of deduction the main cause has to be scee.
maybe if it only happened once you could say it’s any number of reasons but when it happens so often it’s hard to argue against the problem originating within scee.


dont let this make you think we don’t value what we do mike, because we value it very highly, if more of scee showed the same passion you do i think the fanbase would be much happier.
we may not like the news but at least there’s one person who want’s to keep us in the loop as much as he can.

you have any idea what’s happened to jem lately?
he seems to have gone awol, not replying at all.
don’t really want to have a go because for all i know he could be dealing with some heavy stuff in his home life that’s weighing on his mind.
but if he’s just ignoring us then it’s just not cool.


comment boxes too short :)

Scourgewood 28 November, 2009 @ 4:32 pm   467

I agree Hazel. But the one thing that really bugs me is that Mike is at the end of the chain, but the worst complainers make out that Mike has control over SCEE. Mike can only do so much and what he can do is applied to the store.

If these people have an issue with SCEE, then they should take it up with SCEE and not Mike himself. I wonder how they’d feel if they got flak for working for a company when it’s not even their fault, but their bosses.

Admittedly, the two main offenders on here must most certainly be trolls, or at least little kiddies who seem to think they know everything.

ericscolon 28 November, 2009 @ 5:13 pm   468

A simple yes or no if there is any info you have of it coming to the US store will suffice.
have a good day


ericscolon can i add parasite eve to that list along with those couple of dozen copies of xenogears :)

just realised, the name, eewwwww. :)

halfaworldaway 28 November, 2009 @ 8:40 pm   470

Any more news on this?

I cant download the content for DRAGON BALL RAGING BLAST. Why is that ?

rhubarb4lazio 29 November, 2009 @ 5:03 pm   472

So i ask again, for the third time, when will f1 2009 be available for download? been in the shops for two weeks now and still no sign on the network. I am seriously considering getting rid of my psp go now. i only got the thing to play this game SO WHERE IS IT??? I have even emailed you direct and got no reply. way to go on the customer service guys!

halfaworldaway 29 November, 2009 @ 6:50 pm   473

[DELETED] Sony get the finger out on the LEgo Rock Band debacle.

could anyone please tell me if Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC will be available for Greece and the rest of the unavailable countries? I live in Greece and i dont see it in the PS store. Is this permanent or will it be fixed?

AcidDark 1 December, 2009 @ 6:02 pm   475

When are Europe going to feel the Resident Evil 2 PSN love ? It’s one of my favourite games of all time and it’s annoying that the folks over the pond already have it !!

TheIsotope 1 December, 2009 @ 10:23 pm   476


I feel the same way as you I would love RESI 1,2 or 3 soon.

spankrocket 2 December, 2009 @ 1:10 am   477

Hey mike , just wondering is it true there wiil be over 300 PSone titles due out in 2010 ? E3 said something about it . Hopefully you guys can have Square-Enix put Final Fantasy VIII and Final Fantasy IX on the store to complement Final Fantasy VII. Also the Spyro games would be great too , some memories they were !. And when will the premuim avatars be realeased ? I think an avatar pack would be a great idea, say a Tekken avatar pack for example with X Number of avatars for a reasonable price . that would be cool . Thanks and keep up the excellent work . Playstation 4 ever !!

mike, please tell me in advance sims is going to be on the store

Cypherous 2 December, 2009 @ 10:10 pm   479

Still no word on Ad-Hoc Party, seriously it can’t be that hard is it going to be in this week or is it being delayed indefinately, the EU store really doesn’t compare to the japanese nor US stores and i’ve seen the US store its amazing even just as a layout, surely you guys all being the same company should have some sort of uniformity between the stores at the very least just for terms of layout and ease of access :(

Drencrom 3 December, 2009 @ 8:51 am   480

When will SCEE release Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on EU PSN?
Bring it O_O

VictorAnalogy 3 December, 2009 @ 11:59 am   481

Hey Mike,

Not sure you’re going to see this as the next update is probably imminent. I know you don’t get much thanks but I for one appreciate the frequency and style with which you respond to comments.

A lot of people I’m sure (myself included) start our visit to the PlayStation blog on your “heads up” post, it seems to blow other posts comment figures out of the water and you almost always lead the way in responses. By contrast the video updates seem to be replied to much less frequently and in a much more…”corporate” fashion. No disrespect to Olga or anyone else who takes the time to talk to the community, but in my opinion you certainly stands head and shoulders above the rest in the feedback stakes.

Don’t go changing!

P.S. I might just repost this in the next update…we’ll see.

O Mike if you could get in contact with the people sort out the PS1 games for Europe and find whats going on that would be fantastic.

I don’t like the feeling of not knowing whats going on and a lot of people here feel the same.

Thanks again.
