‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 13th April 2011

130483_Store-1

Hello all – first of all I apologise for not getting around to commenting last week, even the best intentions sometimes get side-tracked by enormous workloads. I am definitely here this afternoon (well, there’s one meeting but I won’t be gone too long) so speak your mind and I will answer – so it is written, so it shall be.

Well then, aside from the glut of Special Offers available from today (and tomorrow), what else do we have for you?

Two new PSN games hit today for PS3 owners, complete with trials – the much anticipated Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (20% day-one discount for Plussers) and Konami’s classic franchise reboot of Rush n’ Attack: Ex Patriot.

We’ve also got loads of DLC for retail and digital releases, allowing you to expand your play time with Moon Diver, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Funky Lab Rat and Bulletstorm to name but a few.

An exciting new range of XMB customisation options launches in the form of ‘The Studio’ – a brand new set of dynamic and premium themes designed by the hottest artists around, including Anthony Burrill, Mr Jago and Rexbox (who’s work you might recognise from LBP). They’re pretty funky themes and Plus members not only get a free theme, but a blanket discount on all current and future ‘The Studio’ themes. How generous is that?!

Also, be nice to me today, it’s my birthday. See you in the comments!

First, to wish you a happy birthday!

Croopnick_PL 13 April, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   2

Any news about Castlevania DLC?

Death-In-Pants 13 April, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   3

No Casltevania DLC then?

Happy Birthday Ross!

When are they going to release Tomb Raider II? It’s the only PSOne Tomb Raider missing at the Store.

Happy Birthday Ross!

Silent_Gig 13 April, 2011 @ 1:04 pm   6

Happy Birthday!

Exellent update

proxystar 13 April, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   7

Ross, are the Rockstar avatars released on the New Zealand store? We have been asking for weeks now and you said you were asking the Rockstar manager and would get back to us? What’s the deal it’s been weeks and weeks now.

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 2:59 pm    

    I am chasing this again right now – I’m going to speak with Rockstar directly, get the data released back to them so they can update the availale countries and if I can get them pushed live this week (not today but before Friday) then I will do just that.

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:39 pm    

    I’ve spoken to Rockstar – this is in hand, they’re making the necessary alterations to the data and we’ll get them live as soon as we can.

Happy Birthday !

But where is Patapon 3 ? :(

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:02 pm    

    Patapon 3 is out in the UK on Friday (15th), and mainland Europe next Wednesday, which is when we’ll be publishing to the Store.

Carnivius_Prime 13 April, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   9

I’ll take Rush N Attack. To hell with the reveiws I’ve seen. I downloaded the demo a couple weeks back off the US store and enjoyed it muchly. Far more entertaining than Bionic Commando was anyways.

I’ll make use of the sale to finally obtain Watchmen part 1. Never much liked the comic and didn’t like the movie but the game is good quality brutal fun and co op too.

Quick question, any news on when we can expect Resident Evil 2? *cute face*

What’s in the Yakuza 4 Upgrade Pack, Ross?

bravo9zero 13 April, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   15

Not a bad update.

Have the EU PS+ infamous 2 beta codes been sent out?
Haven’t received anything yet :(

Nerolan 13 April, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   16

No WWE Allstars Addon in Europe?

PS: Happy Birthday!

spatsnaz 13 April, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   17

Happy birthday Ross.

Spider-jam 13 April, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   18

But also, Happy Birthday Ross!

Any chance on getting Speed Freaks PS1 classic on the store anytime soon?

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:41 pm    

    It’s on the SCEE internal PSone classics list for processing, so sometime yes, but this one isn’t as high a priority as Legend of Dragoon!

Happy Birthday :)

Why was Back to the future Episode 2 not mentioned in last weeks update but was on the store? are we going to be informed when new episodes get released?

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:45 pm    

    It was a very late submission, we managed to getti through QA and all sorted at the last minute and I wasn’t around to let you know. If you go back and look, it’s been added right at the bottom of the content list – sorry you guys weren’t better informed.

Hi Ross
Where’s patapon 3? Playstation.co.uk and amazon and play all say it’s out this week. When is it coming to psn?

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:46 pm    

    It’ll be out on PSN next Wednesday – the game is out at retail on Friday in the UK but next Wednesday in Europe.

any word about virtua tennis 4 demo ross as it was said on this blog it was out the 13th april ? was really looking forward to trying that

Murphy2k8 13 April, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   23

Any chance of a blog post about new stuff on the Video Store? Quite poor that we get a post one month then not another one for a long time after it.

BTW, Happy Birthday. :)

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:47 pm    

    I’m sorry, the Video Store is a seperate team. I will pass on your feedback though.

Romain29 13 April, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   24

amazing classic PSone update -____-

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:49 pm    

    Actually Final Fantasy V (PSone) has just been cleared for launch today – the list at the top will be updated shortly.

mrfodder 13 April, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   25

Commiserations, you share your birthday with me! :-)

No mention of Patapon 3!!!!

Crack open a cold one Ross and enjoy the rest of the day. After that see if you can find me some new stuff for Shift 2 cause I am loving that game with the Driving Force GT wheel :-)

Enutrik 13 April, 2011 @ 1:10 pm   27

Dear Ross

I would like to thank you for all your hard work. I know that it is your job to post these things, but it’s also great to see you answering to most of our questions in the comment section. I do have a simple request myself, though I am aware that you are not in a position to ‘create’ these things. Maybe you can pass them the suggestions, so they can do something with it?

I would LOVE to see avatars from these franchises:

-Bioshock (Big Daddy, Andrew Ryan, Subject Delta)
-Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Starkiller, Darth Vader)
-God of War (Kratos, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades)
-Dante’s Inferno (Dante, Satan)
-Darksiders (War, The Watcher)
-Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Gabriel,God or Devil mask)
-Sly Cooper (Sly, Panda King)
-Mass Effect (Shepard, Garrus, Grunt)
-Enslaved (Monkey)
-Dead Space (Isaac, Necromorphs, the Marker logo, …)
-inFAMOUS (Good Cole, Evil Cole)
-Final Fantasy XIII

I hope I get a reply from you! 

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:51 pm    

    Howdy dowdy,

    Well, I’ve requested Bioshock avatars from 2K and I’m seeing Namco Bandai next week, so I can ask them about Enslaved then.
    As for the first-party avatars, I’ll chase them down and see what we can do!

    Good list by the way, lots of top notch characters.

RandyAndy13 13 April, 2011 @ 1:10 pm   28

Hey, you know when the Ultra Complete Costume Pack is released for Super Street Fighter IV, do you reckon that we could get both the Super & Ultra Complete Costume Pack’s in a bundle for £20 or less?

Or atleast a discount on the Super Costume Pack so that you can buy both of the pack’s separately for £20 or less?

Considering Arcade Edition is gonna be released, it would be a good deal

TAKE-AWAY 13 April, 2011 @ 1:10 pm   29

Merry birthday:)

bravo9zero 13 April, 2011 @ 1:11 pm   30

Happy birthday Ross!

I love motorstorm:Apocalypse and all but that is a RIP-OFF.Is that how they apologies us for the awful servers that was for a long time?

HUNTER297 13 April, 2011 @ 1:11 pm   32

Anyway nice update.

dmann1982 13 April, 2011 @ 1:11 pm   33

Its my Birthday on Friday too Ross.

And you never gave me the present I asked for, ie Alundra on PS1 classics. Im disappointed now :p.

Hmmm. Maybe your present will arrive late…

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:53 pm    

    We’re looking into Alundra. As always, no promises, but we’re doing our checks.

Goonboy 13 April, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   34

many happy returns Ross!

Any news on Free Realms?

thank you

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:54 pm    

    No I’m afraid I know as much about the EU version of Free Realms as you do at this point.

HiddenAway 13 April, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   35

Happy Birthday Ross!

Nowt much for the PSP (sales and DLC aside). Also, are those dynamic themes really for PSP?

Lunar is good for £10. If you’re looking for somethingon the PSP, that’s one suggestion. Traditional JRPG with a good story :)

Speaking of which, do you know anything about a PSN release for Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky from XSeed?

sp33dking89 13 April, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   36

Any news on the Darkstalker Avatars? There still broken and its been a week now…

Happy Bday, but the update is terrible!

Lucreto 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   40

Happy Birthday Ross :)

I was expecting Back to the Future episode 2 this week but alas nothing again.

Also your fabled PS1 classic list is there any word on it?

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:56 pm    

    BTTF Episode 2 launched last week (we sort of snuck it out at the last minute). PS1 Article pending some final activity on this end – sit tight!

quidditys_shore 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   41

Bodachi 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   42

Happy Birthday!

Falcon1991 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   43

Mike Kebby 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   44

Happy birthday Ross from all at SEGA.

Well okay just from me, but the sentiment is there okay ;)

Did you get the card I sent you?

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 3:59 pm    

    Okay I’ve JUST opened it, and it’s the best birthday card I’ve ever receieved. Thank you very much. :)

dazbobaby 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   45

Still no hoard.
This is weak!

n1keman_SH 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   46

What date are we gettin Patapon 3?
The US had it yesterday and it comes out this week?
Many thanks in advance.

Mikal_Drey 13 April, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   47

hey hey

still no Hoard or Undersiege ? :”’(

With the inclusion of the Spring Update thread will there be a seperate blog entry for the sales ?

To blog the same information twice seems wastefull.

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 4:31 pm    

    We only have additional sale blog posts for the larger sales. I don’t think promotional information is ever wasteful is it?

    STOP BLOGGING, YOU’RE WASTING THE INTERNETZ!!

    ;)

spielman77 13 April, 2011 @ 1:14 pm   48

Mazel Tov my friend… Many happy years to come and congratulations for doing such a great job. Take care.

obriencfc 13 April, 2011 @ 1:14 pm   49

Hi Ross hav a quick question. do you know when we will recieve Marvel V Capcom avatars? and also i just want to say that i seen some of the comments yesterday when you released the news on the spring offers and i just want to say some people should just relax and stop shooting the messenger lol. keep the good work up Ross and dont stop your sarcasm ways lol.

    Ross McGrath 13 April, 2011 @ 4:36 pm    

    Well, I do apologise for upsetting anyone and just remember that sometimes I can’t always answer every question in the way you’d like.

    The Capcom avatars are starting to filter in, but I’m not sure about MvC3 ones, I’ll find out.

Lamkers 13 April, 2011 @ 1:14 pm   50
