‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 31st August 2011

'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 31st August 2011

Hi everyone, it’s Store update day and the second title in the PlayStation Network PLAY series is released today – The Baconing – the third instalment in the saga of Deathspank, defender of the downtrodden and thong enthusiast.

You are DeathSpank, a hero and the ultimate Dispenser of Justice. You must defeat the Anti-Spank and his army of Cyborques, before they cast an evil shadow over Spanktopia. Discover exciting new worlds and battle hordes of enemies as you search to unlock the secret within the Fires of Bacon.

Your free gift with this title is an extra character, Roesha, who will be available to download from next week’s publish – you can grab it from the PLAY Offer section on the Store, where you’ll also be able to pick up your pre-orders.

Also new this week, we have Elevator Action Deluxe from Square Enix, a retro-reboot of the classic spy, document collecting arcade game from days of yore. Well, 1983 was not quite the days of yore but it was a long time ago in videogames! The original arcade game is included in this release so you can see what all the fuss was about.

We also have the PSN version of 4 Elements HD, a digital BD version of TV Superstars and as usual, plenty of DLC to expand your titles, including a new Toy Story 3 LittleBigPlanet 2 bundle.

The Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta also stops being a Plus exclusive today, so you can all try out the multiplayer ahead of the game’s release on the 9th September.

I’ll be around most of the afternoon today, mercifully I am meeting free until 5pm, so I’ll be around for your comments.

I’ll see you from 2pm – bye for now.

Ross

Sorry to keep bugging you Ross, as this has been mentioned several times already, but the Crash Bandicoot 2 title hasn’t been changed yet? Can you get it changed please?

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:16 pm    

    I’d requested this previously but I’ve asked for this to be updated again today so I will hopefully be able to sort this for you.

 

Still Playstation Plus mid-month treats?

The month is almost over!

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:18 pm    

    We’ve added a few extras throughout the month of September already, you had a very full couple of weeks at the start of the month – but there is one more treat coming on Friday/Saturday for this month before we kick off September.

This update sucks! No demo of God of War Collection Volume II!!!

cheeky4life 31 August, 2011 @ 1:02 pm   4

what have you done to the PSone classics Ross? we havnt had one for about 2 months, its becoming a joke now.

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:20 pm    

    Got a few coming down in September – PSone releases have never been very regular I’m afraid, they all sort of take as long as they take, but we’re approaching quite a few Monkey Paw releases as well in the near future.

 
Silent_Gig 31 August, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   5

Any news on Mr.Diller yet?

DownSelectStart 31 August, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   6

wheres the Mortal Kombat kollection???? I was really looking foward to that…now il purchase on the Xbox now instead

 
homerjnick 31 August, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   7

Poorest update in a long long time…

 
STUPID_DAD 31 August, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   8

I was hoping for a dead island demo

 
somethingatt 31 August, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   9

Auto-Update is acting dodgy (you have to set clock via manual each time for it to activate or some random glitch), hope you guys are looking into that.

Not much for me this time, hopefully new PS+ treats come soon.

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:23 pm    

    Yes, I believe there’s a group of tech guys looking at the issues around the autoupdate since the firmware update. Thanks for the feedback though.

Where is the PSP Games……. Waiting forever it seems like PSP is DEAD on PSN.

And no PsOne classics either.

cheeky4life 31 August, 2011 @ 1:04 pm   11

and also the Psone request blog, when can we expect that?

 
cthulhu85 31 August, 2011 @ 1:04 pm   12

Hmm, I thought “Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection” was coming today? O_O Do you know if it’s coming next week?

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:41 pm    

    It’s not on my schedule yet I’m afraid, although I have it in the pre-publish system so it can’t be far out.

 
almighty-slayer 31 August, 2011 @ 1:04 pm   13

No God of War Collect 2 demo? Sadface :(

Just The Baconing for me, then :)

 
markl1972 31 August, 2011 @ 1:04 pm   14

Hi Ross, How are you today?

Please answer ALL My points.

 
night64448 31 August, 2011 @ 1:04 pm   15

So, we get the DeathSpank DLC only next week ?
But… There’s no point in this DLC anymore ! In a week’s time, I’ll already have finished the game with another sidekick !

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:44 pm    

    Sorry, it’ll definitely be ready for you next week to pick up. And if you do finish it by next week, perhaps you can come back another time and play through with Roesha instead.

 
Jesse-Blue 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   16

Nice update.
Let’s have some bacon. :)
Elevator action a bit overpriced for not having online multiplayer…

Have you read the story from Eurogamer about Microsoft forcing all publishers to NOT release their games first on PSN otherwise M$ can decline release on Xbox?
That’s why they often get stuff a few weeks early (because they pay publishers extra) and Sony never?
(example Summer of Arcade vs. PSN Play)
And that M$ does not allow publishers to have more content on other systems than on Xbox?
(like having extra stages or whatever on PS3 to use the of Blu-ray capacity.)

IS THIS WHY NOT A SINGLE THIRD PARTY GAME IS BETTER ON PS3 OR HAS MORE CONTENT?
(except fore the ones releasing substantially later on PS3.)

If so, Sony should sue Microsoft for this practice as it sounds like very unfair business and puts them obviously in a big disadvantage.
M$ has already been sucessfully sued over similar unfair behaviour for their Windows software.
Lovely company.

Anyone who wants to read for themselves… make sure to read all.

http://bit.ly/rpCnUy

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:40 pm    

    That’s an interesting read indeed, I did wonder if this would ever become public knowledge.

 
Andrefpvs 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   17

I thought we were getting something extra on Plus, but maybe next month will be much better :)

 
Nightmare966 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   18

Nothing for me this week it seems, although I may download a few Trailers.

Also Ross, two questions/issues:

1 – THe Soulcalibur V GamesCom trailer we have on the store is, in fact, the Comic Con trailer.

2 – Any news on firther White Knight Chjronicles 2 DLC? Some hope came last week with those accessory tickets, but we players are really hoping of a the bigger ones!

Thanks before hand :)

 
Bauer007 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   19

Hey Ross :) do you have any idea on whether Ubisoft plans to release Assassins Creed Revelations digitally on PSN at launch? Thanks

VIKTORIZED 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   20

Persona 3 Portable was supposed to come out five months ago, and ever since you’ve been saying soon. A couple of weeks ago even “very soon”. This is ridiculous, don’t bother commenting – just bring the game already.

PERSONA 3 PORTABLE. OK?

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:43 pm    

    True fact, if you get angry, the game comes faster.
    Disclaimer: That might not be true.

    Persona 3 Portable is “meant” to come out when the publisher for the title is ready to release it, so I’m afraid you will just have to be patient. However, it is now a very, very short wait.

Chaosprower 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   21

It’s official; no new PSP games for August, the same as July…

KennyKawai 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   22

No Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection? *sad face*

c9dartfinish 31 August, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   23

Do you know when were likely to see any more ps1 classics, it has been a while.

 

Any news for us White Knight Chronicles 2 fans? I hear japan has had a balance patch, any hope for us getting that soon?

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:48 pm    

    I can’t comment on the patches but Ross Alexander has confirmed with me that there’s a lot more WKC2 content coming to our Store.

 
green_shorts 31 August, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   25

Usual [DELETED] like last week no mortal combat kollection even tho the yanks got it yesterday when are we expecting it in a months time? Same old same old

 
Andrefpvs 31 August, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   26

By the way, can we have Persona 1 in the PSP sales? It’s been at full price for so long now…

Omg, what a great PSOne classics…. oh, wait. :[

 
Querdenker 31 August, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   28

Thanks for yet another Heads Up.

(Just repeating what I wrote last week and hoping for some kind of answer/feedback this time around.)

I have two suggestions:

#1: Put Full Game Trials of more/all PS2 HD Collection games into the PS Store. I guess there can’t be demos of these games, so Full Game Trials must be the way to go. The God of War Collection had trials, and that was great (I bought the games afterwards). My issue is that I was looking into buying the (then discounted) Prince of Persia Collection bundle, but several people said/wrote that many sound effects in these games are way off. So I would have liked to be able to test these games first.

#2: Make the Full Game Trials permanently available for one-time-use, just like in the US Store.

Thanks for reading

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:50 pm    

    Thanks for the feedback – we’re looking at making alterations to Plus at the moment and one of the initiatives, along with organising the Plus section to make it easier for you to find content, is to offer the full-game trials permanently as they do in the US – we hope to bring this to you all soon.

    As for your frist point, it’s up to the publisher to decide if they want to do trials for their HD collections so we can encourage this but not enforce it.

 
vicheous 31 August, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   29

Where is the TDU 2 DLC?

Chaosprower 31 August, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   30

@19 P3P is coming on September 7th.

 

Cool, but PlayStation Plus automatic downloads still DO NOT work in FW 3.70!!!! We’re paying for it :/

 
HiddenAway 31 August, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   32

@ awwe

Well, Persona 3 Portable is out next week ;)

@ Ross

Snowy: The Bear’s Adventures (£7.99/€8.99) Rating: PEGI 3

Bit expensive for a mini isn’t it?

 
dazzy_t123 31 August, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   33

Ross, please answer, when will plus members actually be recieving content? II cant really understand what we are actually paying for? thanks in advance, i hope an pray for a reply

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 1:55 pm    

    You have had a great deal of content and day-one discounts in August including a massive exclusivity window on the Resistance 3 Beta in August, it just happened to be a predominatly front-loaded month.

    Things are spread out a little more in September.

 
MorganTPN 31 August, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   34

Where’s the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection? That was supposed to be released today wasn’t it?

What about the PSP Game: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky?

 
Lance_87 31 August, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   36

what happened to Revoltin’ Youth? the devs said it would have returned in a week.

    Ross McGrath 31 August, 2011 @ 2:04 pm    

    I know the developers are submitting a new build at the moment, so once it’s ready we’ll put it up immediately as a running replacement – the game will be back once the new build has gone through test, and it’s in test at the moment.

 

When will Media Go be available for Mac. I will not buy another PSP title until Media Go for Mac is available. We are customers as well.

moriarty1975 31 August, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   38

Still no Oil Stain DLC for ModNation Racers? Any reason for the delay?

 
XtianHawkGamer 31 August, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   39

Hmmm nothing for me this week…

 

Hi, any idea where those PROMISED Playstation Plus mid-month treats are at? Not exactly mid-month anymore, is it?

 

hi Ross ,

where is Eufloria and Machinarium …

Dawid

 
elita411 31 August, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   42

I am guessing maybe next week the pink knight will be available. Hei, my wife is bugging me about that, so i am nagging you. Second, why arent the dip switches free for psplus members and who preordered it. They did that on the us store. And third, what about the god of war origins demo for the plus members?

GaiaScythe 31 August, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   43

Another sad week for PSP-users … :(

c9dartfinish 31 August, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   44

Is that a mistake, £8 for a mini?

 

1. Another week without a Plus treat, where is the early GoW demo?

2. No demos for 4 Elements HD or Elevator Action Deluxe = no sale.

3. I still wait for the 2 free Plus Avatars in the german store. Seriously, is it such a burden to release 2 little pictures within a month? I paid for that crap, so give me what you owe me.

 
Carnivius_Prime 31 August, 2011 @ 1:11 pm   46

Aw, I was overjoyed in seeing Shock Troopers, my most fave Neo Geo game ever, was on the US Store last night but disappointed that it’s not here on the Eu store. Was really hoping to buy that. Nothing else up today I want though I’ll take free themes as usual.

Kazblade 31 August, 2011 @ 1:11 pm   47

A few questions :
Is BOF4 (Psone) coming here?
Is Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls (psn) still scheduled sometimes this year?
Is Cladunx2 (psp) coming in europe?
Any news about the psone import?

thank you for reading.

 
Querdenker 31 August, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   48

@somethingatt

Auto-Update is acting dodgy (you have to set clock via manual each time for it to activate or some random glitch), hope you guys are looking into that.

Setting the clock via Internet each day works for me as well.

There’s a long forum thread on this topic: http://bit.ly/qY8uLl

 
Cpt_Yanni 31 August, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   49

When will the bèta of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations be available for download?

Huono_peleis 31 August, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   50

@Andrefpvs

Next month is always AWESOME…

I think Sony is letting the Plus just fade away since it was no success. PSP is getting the same handling as well.

 

will the sly cooper trilogy be coming to the store?

 

Meh nothing for me again 1/5. Man the updates seem to be getting worse. Honestly if I could I would rate this 0/5 but that isn’t an option oh well.

 
crackalakaling 31 August, 2011 @ 1:15 pm   53

Finally can try the resistance 3 beta to see if its any good and decide whether to buy it or not. About time! :)

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 1:15 pm   54

I agree But come on we know SCEE can‘t keep up with a superior SCEA & SCEJ new SCEE boss Same lame lack-less content broken promises.

Square enix EU a other lying so & so looking at putting PE1 on EU months back i read it is the same with the imports post Useless.

what about Ps2 games i now downloaded the Ps2 system data for it so pull your f-ing finger out or give to the SCEA store team.

i‘m not fooling for words & Not action 1 really good game doesn’t make a great update.

2/5

 
RobertMorridin 31 August, 2011 @ 1:15 pm   55

Adding in another request for Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms :)

By the way, I was wondering if the US and EU departments on the store work together at all?

I’d assume that if the US folks get a game working on the psp, it should be able to work on the EU psp as well.

I’ll fully confess to being uneducated there as I do know that the PS1 games waybackwhen were region-locked. But I hoped that since the PSP can play psp games from both regions the same would be true for the PSone classics.

 
Bumblebee 31 August, 2011 @ 1:15 pm   56

Ah nuts! I was hoping for Mortal Kombat Kollection!

Speaking of Resistance 3, what happened to the Survival Edition? Or was it Survivor Edition? I find it hard tracking down which retailer gets these specials, and this is one I really wanted but I can’t seem to find out where it is being sold, or if it even is coming to Europe.

 
PHILYPOT08 31 August, 2011 @ 1:16 pm   57

poor update no avatars again seriously y ??

 
HiddenAway 31 August, 2011 @ 1:16 pm   58

@ awwe_se

Nothing on the PSN release except that Ghostlight want to get the PSN and UMD releases closer together.

They did reveal the collector’s edition last week though.

Huono_peleis 31 August, 2011 @ 1:17 pm   59

…and when Sony is going to fix all the firmware bugs. Auto-update doesn’t work, tv-channels missing etc.

Shouldn’t you test the firmware updates before releasing them?

 
polynski 31 August, 2011 @ 1:17 pm   60

no psone classics yet again…can you get resistance 3 put on the store when its released? im too lazy to walk to asda to pick up a copy

noruraeus 31 August, 2011 @ 1:20 pm   62

Hi Ross, last week you said you would look into where the TDU2 expansion pack was stuck in the system after someone asked. Did you get any response? I think there is quite a lot of us waiting on that expansion pack/bugfix.

SynysteRx- 31 August, 2011 @ 1:20 pm   63

When are we getting the Marvel vs Capcom 3 Avatars?

I want me some Deadpool!

Shou_Kobayashi 31 August, 2011 @ 1:21 pm   64

That’s the Baconing for me, this time…

So what’s the Warhammer 40K: Space Marine “Elite Pass” is this some sort of Anti-Used-Copy scheme?

Also will PSN feature more titles for pre-ordering with a little bonus? This is interesting as long as it means you get some Avatar or side character early on.

 
CoolRichy007UK 31 August, 2011 @ 1:22 pm   65

we need more plus games not them stupid minis

Hey Ross :)

Nothing for me today but how come no Plus content? thought we were getting something this week?

oh and anything about the promised free Beyond good and evil avatars? The US got them and if i remember we were promised them aswell.

any chance if section 8 avatars the usa plus had for free

 
Bealinator 31 August, 2011 @ 1:26 pm   76

Ross,

It has been a while since we have had a PSOne classic in a weekly update, can we expect that to change in the coming weeks?

And please thank your colleague in charge of the Weekend Debate for the free game I got for my comment – greatly appreciated, you folks at SCEE are so generous!

Quick question though: can we expect an extension of publisher-based sales that we were having a few weeks ago? It was a fantastic idea, and I was quite tempted on all weeks to get something.

When are guys going to stop dragging your feet and start adding digital games to PSN that people actually care about?
I realize there are issues with retail for new games, but there really is no excuse for older Sony published games.

Why Sony have not yet added a ‘Platinum’ or ‘Greatest Hits’ section to the store is just plain dumb in financial terms …seriously, do you at sony have any idea how much money you are loosing to used game stores and ebay?

Excellent older games + fair price + Impulse-buy digital delivery = ££££££££

 

‘Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta’? COOL! ! ! :P

 
RobertMorridin 31 August, 2011 @ 1:27 pm   79

@Whittle1;

Yeah, it’s mostly the first page and then nothing :(

 
polynski 31 August, 2011 @ 1:27 pm   80

i swear ive seen all those trailers in the store already ive even downloaded them so why are they in this post?

 
dazzy_t123 31 August, 2011 @ 1:28 pm   81

suprise!!!! NO REPLY, due plus content??? a mega drive game and a discounted dlc what no one uses? ill apologise when you prove us wrong?

 
polynski 31 August, 2011 @ 1:28 pm   82

well the resistance 3 1s anyway

TheBigBoss0001 31 August, 2011 @ 1:29 pm   83

Any news on Tomb Raider 2, RE2, RE3?

Any chance Loaded or Heart of Darkness PS1-classics will come to the store?

 
Chocobo115 31 August, 2011 @ 1:29 pm   84

Hey Ross do you know if we’ll get Phantasy Star 2 as a Sega Mega Drive classic (like Xbox 360 did) and if we get it will it be part of the PS+ promotion?

 
Agria_PT 31 August, 2011 @ 1:30 pm   85

Hey! It seems it’s just the baconing for me today. The other games sure could use a trial ;)

By the way Ross, is there any chance of a Disgaea 3 Sale similar to the one on the US PSN? Cheers!

 
EternalChaos72 31 August, 2011 @ 1:32 pm   86

ok im fed up going into the ps store since they cant bring out decent avatars no point me checkin again

 
JunkYardDog 31 August, 2011 @ 1:33 pm   87

Like many I’m wondering where the MK collection is…
And what’s up with the SFIII dipswitch page dlc? Are they serious?!?

 
Wraith_Bringer 31 August, 2011 @ 1:34 pm   88

Hi Ross, two questions I’d like you to answer please!

First off, do we have a release date for Harmony of Despair on PSN? Will there be anything added too it from the XBLA release and what price are we looking at?

Secondly, this PSP sale is lovely and all but I still can’t find the games I want to buy. I wanted a digital copy of Tekken 5 but can’t find it, I wanted to get some Yu-Gi-Oh! Games and I can’t find them either but most of all I really wanted Valkyrie Profile which Square and TriAce remade for PSP, will you please see about getting some of these uploaded?

Valkyrie Profile is a classic RPG and should be played by everyone.

 

About PS Plus:
“We’ve added a few extras throughout the month of September already, you had a very full couple of weeks at the start of the month”

Ehh…no!
We only had the Plus update on 3rd of August.
That’s it.

And the last sentence in that update was “There will be plenty more special little extras for you during the month so keep an eye out for the next update”.
So far, we had nothing but a few 20% discounts on the PLAY thing.

 
Bealinator 31 August, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   90

Got another question, and I put this to Andy and he said it was a great idea: Quite simply, do you think there is a chance of yourselves (SCEE) and other publishers copying Disney and creating Bundle packs for PSOne classics? Just shove 1-3 games in it and price it at around the rate of three for the price of two or something like that.

For those new to playstation and who are tempted by the likes of Crash Bandicoot (I own them all,for the record!) what better way to introduce them by giving them a discounted collection?

Oh, can you confirm that the reason why we are not getting Spyro 2 on the store is because the game simply doesn’t work on PS3 properly? I tried the disc version a few weeks ago and cutscene audio is awful – cuts out at times.

nights909 31 August, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   91

Any chance of seeing Shock Troopers 1 & 2 (NeoGeo) and Gex (PSOne) on the UK store?

 

assassins creed revelations beta only monday?

 
polynski 31 August, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   93

oh and some1 asked what the elite pass for whammer was and it is probably 1 of those if you buy second hand you need to pay more to go online type deals i need a homefront code even though i bought it from asda(not 2nd hand)

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   94

about the motal kombat it lagging like hell not a very good port of it, that 1 good thing SCEE had done. :D

 
chrisredfield_97 31 August, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   95

hey Ross can you tell me something where is the mk arcade collection i was waiting months for this can you answer to me please if you can thanx and one more thing when are we going to get free resident evil 5 and 4 avatars?

 
EternalChaos72 31 August, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   96

i mean honestly sony how hard is to get the marvel vs capcom 3 and super street fighter arcade edition avatars? (sighh..) extremely poor update

MYSZa7_PL 31 August, 2011 @ 1:45 pm   97

Where is Deus Ex DYNAMIC THEME?!

 
RobertMorridin 31 August, 2011 @ 1:45 pm   98

@Wraith_Bringer: It’s actually Tekken 6 that’s on the PSP (and PS3), Tekken 5 was only on the PS2.

Tekken 6 is online though :3

Resistance 3 Beta :)

However last week I asked to put The King of Fighters ’95 (PS3) in the Neo-Geo PS3 folder, well it is there now, but The King of Fighters ’94 has been removed from there and Baseball Stars 2 is not in the folder. Do you think that you can put The King of Fighters ’94 and Baseball Stars 2 back in the Neo Geo (PS3) folder?

Also I wonder if/when SEGA has any plans of bringing Sonic the Hedgehog 3 to PSN? Xbox Live has had it for a quite a while now.

Thanks :)

 
Lucreto 31 August, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   100

Hi Ross.

Any word on the PS1 classics list that was promised 6 months ago?

 

the Ar Tonelico dlc from back in April is STILL NOT available in the store

as for White Knight Chronicles 2 DLC – where is the update to fix certain classes – we get gear that would have been helpful at lvl1 nearly 3 months after the release of the game and JP gets gr rank up, gr26 UNIDS, avatar quests, georama dlc and certain fixes that actually fix the crummy drop rate of certain rare items – not to mention tickets such as the guild tickets – when is this coming – are we being forced to wait until the release in NA?

anf finally Euffloria and From Dust when are they going to be released? There was a blog post about Euffloria quite awhile ago – so release date info please

awwe_se 31 August, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   102

When will the new Angry Birds version be compatible with the old version from another publisher?

Chillingo Rovio conflict

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   103

@ James

Take it the treat that you’re referring to on Friday/Saturday is the Assassins Creed Revelations BETA, that has already been mentioned?

Hope that’s not the case :(

 
polynski 31 August, 2011 @ 1:53 pm   104

cpt yanni
the beta is released to playstation plus and uplay members on the 3rd of september :) im glad im a uplay member

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 1:54 pm   105

To all asking about Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection:

Yes it was supposed to be released today as it was only exclusive to PS3 in North America yesterday!

When the title is eventually released on the store check the link out before you purchase : http://goo.gl/JMFUv

I recommend holding off until a patch is released!

Crimson_1234 31 August, 2011 @ 1:54 pm   106

great i buy a psn card today hoping to buy mortal kombat arcade kollection and its not even coming out yet even though on various websites it says its out today heres one website

http://www.ps3trophies.org/news/news-4549-Mortal-Kombat-Arcade-Kollection-Trailer-Tears-Out-Spines.html

but as usual the americans always get what they want onto there store and we have to wait it makes you think if they have a contract with sony in america to release stuff a week or two or even a month before the uk gets them.

 
vickaz91 31 August, 2011 @ 1:54 pm   107

rooossssss hi
please can we get spyro ps1 classics ive been asking since ps1 classics have been around so quite a long time iam willing to give mony for these games surley you can put them on the eu/uk psn store ??????

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 1:56 pm   108

I read that about M$ that must be why SCEE & sony as a whole sucks but M$ doesn’t come out smelling like rose’s

he admitted we are basis that is so true, last week SCEE says about “we can‘t match prices it‘s price fixing and illegal” but not so in Game when they can lower & up when they want.

M$ under UK law is/are breaking the competition unfair law it doesn’t matter if M$ is a american company still covers in UK law so we getting a Raw deal then because of M$ stupidity.

chris may regret saying the basis word. :P

 
AndyBeans 31 August, 2011 @ 1:57 pm   109

Yet again the EU plays second fiddle to the US plus customers, who’ve got the Assassin’s Creed Revelations beta. At least you’ve put up the Bodycount demo so everyone knows how crap it is before they waste their money on Friday.

Seriously Ross, Sony is really letting down us EU customers for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON!

Kratilim_Valqui 31 August, 2011 @ 1:57 pm   110

No MK, No God of war demo, No Street fighter 3 dlc… That things don’t always go as planned is alright, we get that. But how come this is reoccurring event every single month.

How about telling us when we will get the missing stuff? Its the least you can do to at least try and not lose your customers to microsoft…

 
Wraith_Bringer 31 August, 2011 @ 2:00 pm   111

‘ROBERTMODRIN

Completely wrong Tekken 5 DR was a PSP launch title….

 
IceMan_OneiLLz 31 August, 2011 @ 2:01 pm   112

Hi Ross,

was looking forward to the MK Kollection…downer

also no avatars… call me sad but i really look forward to new avatars…would of liked Marvel vs Capcom avatars or Rachet & Clank.

how come the US always get better store updates than us? why cant we have global store updates?

 
Archosakun 31 August, 2011 @ 2:02 pm   113

Question.
When will the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations beta be up for download? It was my understanding that there would be a pre-load for players. US Store has already got their’s.

 

Hi Ross

Nice update. I renewed my Plus subscription yesterday, i think it is great value every month. I’m currently enjoying Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I highly recommend it to everyone who likes action/story/great gameplay!

I hope you and your colleagues have a good day!

Cheers from Norway.

 
RobertMorridin 31 August, 2011 @ 2:04 pm   115

@Wraith_Bringer;

Gah, you’re fully right, now I remember. Think it had an extra character to the PS2 game didn’t it?

 
teh__pwnerer 31 August, 2011 @ 2:04 pm   116

Sonic 3 and Knuckles?

awwe_se 31 August, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   117

Why is there no logical PSN PLUS Category on MediaGo or the PSP Store?

awwe_se 31 August, 2011 @ 2:07 pm   118

Why is there no PSP Games in PSN PLUS?

either PSP discount or Free PSP games?

awwe_se 31 August, 2011 @ 2:08 pm   119

Why is there no free PSP Games in PSN PLUS?

either PSP PSN Plus Discount or free PSP Games included in the PSN Plus?

AaronSOLDIER 31 August, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   120

Any chance of a Hitman Collection (including the first which was only on PC)? Tell Square Enix there is demand!

The_Shuffle 31 August, 2011 @ 2:13 pm   121

Why does SCEE still not have the Gold Joker and Red Joker add-ons for Motorstorm Apocalypse that were released for free in SCEA last week?

I would download them from the US store but I don’t know if they are compatible with my EU version of the game. How hard can it be to get free content released worldwide simultaneously?

 

Hi Ross,

THe US plus members got free DLC for Crash Commando, free DLC for Street Fighter Third Strike and some great avatars as mid-month treats.

Where are our mid-month treats?

Some discount on themes are no mid-month treats.

 
polynski 31 August, 2011 @ 2:15 pm   123

ac revelations beta is a download and america gets it at the same time as us here in the eu although they do already have the god of war collection demo on their store

 
Bovrillor 31 August, 2011 @ 2:15 pm   124

Selling the dip switches seperately for Third Strike is a joke. The whole DLC situation has really gotten out of hand.

Of course there are legitimate uses for it – some of the Fallout DLCs had a respectable amount of content that wasn’t already on the disc or essential to the game – but too many publishers are using it as a method to double-dip (or worse) on things that should have been included with the original purchase. Assassin’s Creed, Resident Evil etc. are good examples. Horse armour anyone?

The CoD situation is even worse, sure it’s new content, but by not purchasing it you get forced out of the game due to division of user-base.

VIKTORIZED 31 August, 2011 @ 2:16 pm   125

So according to Sony Ghostlight “meant” to release Persona 3 Portable septmeber 7th? Lies won’t help. Unluess it was them who made Playstation Notwork only to delay their release.

This service don’t need more excuses – only to deliver.

Burnout-Addict 31 August, 2011 @ 2:23 pm   133

And to everyone who is complaining about the auto-update feature not working..

It works perfectly fine for me after I set it to update clock via Internet!!

 
Scuffy_P 31 August, 2011 @ 2:23 pm   134

@ 16.
Microsofts business practice is not illegal, albeit ethically dubious. It’s well known cross-platform games sell double and occasionally triple the amount on the 360 than on the PS3. Even though the number of PS3′s equal the number of 360′s, for some reason PS3 owners (particularly in Europe) actually spend less money on games than 360 owners in Europe. With regards to digital content, PSN charges substantially more than XBLA, again even more so in Europe. Doesn’t take a Business graduate to see a connection.

If Microsoft firstly spend more money securing exclusive digital games, timed or otherwise, can you blame the publisher? Or blame Sony for not trying harder? If they’re also threatening to block a release via XBLA unless the publisher agrees to their terms, can you blame them and in particular the publisher? Of course not. XBLA is where they make 60-70% of their revenue.

Microsoft are just fighting tough. Sony need to grow a pair, figure out why PS3 owners are not buying games equal to PS3 units sold, gain a firmer control over pricing (blaming the publishers is getting old) as it’s given Sony a terrible reputation regarding PSN Store prices, and fight back.

 
jozhster 31 August, 2011 @ 2:24 pm   135

Splinter Cell HD Trilogy Theme 1 says “content cannot be accessed on your account” can you look into this?
also could you put in a suggestion for an uncharted 2 DLC Bundle i would love to Trophytize (my word) uncharted 2 and was soon gunna get the DLC but would love a nice bundle with a little discount exclusive to PS+ or not i don’t mind.
thanks for reading and hope for a response

 
Bovrillor 31 August, 2011 @ 2:24 pm   136

Yes Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Thanks Ross you have made my week.

 
Bovrillor 31 August, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   138

ricey787 31 August, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   139

Hi Ross,
I bought Red Faction Guerilla when it was in the sale the other week, but now it appears as though the content has “expired” as it was once a PS+ full game trial. Please could you look into this for me, as I’m now unable to play the game?

Thanks..

 
Bumblebee 31 August, 2011 @ 2:33 pm   140

@ 98 RobertMorridin

Actually, Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection WAS on PSP and PS3.

It was not released on disc for PS3, only as a download title, which later added an extra download for online play.

Not so smug now, eh?

 
moneill83 31 August, 2011 @ 2:34 pm   141

Wow!!! What an awesome update to the Store. So many great titles and additional content added!!!

Oh wait, that’s the American PS Store I’m thinking of. It’s only natural that we in the European community get next to nothing in comparison to our counterparts across the pond. Same old story. Let’s issue a release saying the Mortal Kombat: Arcade Edition will be released on August 30th, but just for the Americans, because they are special. Screw those silly little European PS users. They can wait because they’re less important.

And what with Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica X ‘supposedly’ coming out in the store next month, I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised if both titles don’t see the light of day until after September.

And STILL no Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy XIII, Marvel VS Capcom 3 or Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition avatars.I think from now on, I’ll just log into my American account shop on the American Store instead, because at least they have a decent selection of games and demos and add-ons to download. Not like the crap we have on offer.

Fantastic work, really well done. All of you working at the SCEE Store have earned your paychecks this month.

 
adumr82 31 August, 2011 @ 2:35 pm   142

Can I just say to the PLUS people, we get content the first wednesday of every month, that’s what we pay for, I appreciate we’ve had a lot of bonus’ recently and it doesn’t help when more get teased and don’t happen, but people saying they don’t know what they are paying for maybe should have read the description before paying the money.

Kaci007 31 August, 2011 @ 2:41 pm   147

One question – is there any chance for lowering a price of Siren: Blood Curse on PSStore?? This game is almost impossible to get in Poland, but when it is, it’s ridiculously expensive, as well as the PSS version.

 
Causton97 31 August, 2011 @ 2:41 pm   148

Hey Ross, just wondering why there are LOADS of missing demo’s? Just Cause 2, Warhawk, Planet Minigolf to name a few? Oh and is there going to be a price reduction for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light sometime soon? One last thing (if you are allowed to say anything about it). Will the Playstation Vita’s store have a different layout to what we have already and will Minis and Ps1 classics be compatible?

 

Ross do you know if Resident Evil 4 will have DRM like final fight and Bionic commando r2?

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 2:44 pm   150

@ BumbleBee

Read POST NUMBER 115 as he already admitted he was wrong.

In a way he’s right Tekken 5 was only on PS2.

Tekken 5 DR was an entirely different game & was released on PSP then eventually as a digital title on the PS3!

The changes were as follows:

3 new characters, Jinpachi playable (not online), every character re-balanced and given some new moves, twice the number of stages, some new battle start and win animations for some characters.

Also, DR on the PS3 has online mode.

Basically it was like what Super Street Fighter 4 did to Street Fighter 4!

has there been a update on from dust’s release date yet

 
dazzy_t123 31 August, 2011 @ 2:46 pm   152

and to finish, why do the americans get special treatment???? your one big company, share the wealth, crowd pleaser would be to give an update of all the content we never recievied

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 2:46 pm   153

Also just to add to my POST NUMBER 151

Tekken 5 on PS2 included the following:

Tekken, Tekken 2, Tekken 3 and StarBlade (as a hidden game).

 

@142: You are absolutely right!

But the last year we had mid-month treats every month. People are getting used to that.
On August the 3rd they promised some extra content for the rest of the month. But besides some 20% discount we didn’t had any new content. So that’s a little disappointing.

Krayzie_007 31 August, 2011 @ 2:59 pm   155

Ross,
Have you got any info about Gran Turismo DLC?
Please answer

 
Wraith_Bringer 31 August, 2011 @ 3:05 pm   156

@Catkiller1

Tekken DR was not a completely different game at all. If anything it was an expansion. The online play proved so well, Namco had it ported to Playstation 3 when they were beginning to make engine changes for Tekken 6.

While Tekken 5 on PS3 had Tekken 1, 2, 3 and StarBlade built in as arcades, Dark Resurrection featured a more items in the customisation system and introduced Lili and Dragunov and brought back Armor King. You could also fight “ghosts” which were characters fighting based on other players fighting data.

Jinpachi is only playable on the PS3 version.

Pro_espace72 31 August, 2011 @ 3:05 pm   157

Hello Ross! I have one question.. Do you have any idea when the Rezurrection map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops comes to PS3 / PS Store?

I would be pleased to get an answer. I’ve been waiting for the map pack since 23. August :)

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 3:05 pm   158

Street Fighter 3 dip switches:

If you’re unpatient then purchase the Dip Switch pack, but you can access all pages by completing the game with all characters.

The purchase pack takes the consuming time away that’s all so you’re not getting anything new, incase some of you wondered!

Found this extract from a site:

This Online Edition of the game allows the impatient among us to change all that. Thanks to the full Dip Switch mode (unlocked by beating the game with all characters, or via paid DLC for $0.99), you can now activate all new gameplay systems, including ground-chain combos and air-chain combos.

SebPrime 31 August, 2011 @ 3:06 pm   159

No PS1 games….. again

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 3:09 pm   160

@ Wraith_Bringer

I meant entirely different game due it being like an expansion, that’s why I mentioned the Super Street Fighter update from Street Fighter 4!

Didn’t explain myself properly sorry ;)

I remember the ghosts now, like what was on Virtua Fighter 5!

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 3:10 pm   161

@ 158

usually 4-6 weeks after Microsoft!

X_Weapon 31 August, 2011 @ 3:10 pm   162

Downloading the Demos and 1-2 trailers.

Anyway, all that folders in the PSStore are way too much. It isn’t organized and immediate. You should reinvent it from 0 (in the next gen?).
In this way it’s difficult for a newbie to find PSN title and more. You have to know the title name and use search. Otherwise they will not find anything.

Blue Toad Murder Files: Episode One is now permanently free of charge – it’s still 95p on the store.

@ Wraith

Out of interest will you be picking up Tekken Tag Tournament 2 when it’s released & the Tekken Hybrid package?

Personally can’t wait for them!

Would be nice if a Dead or Alive title was released.

 
chrisandsheva 31 August, 2011 @ 3:20 pm   169

hi Ross, not much on offer today, still at least i have a choice to customise my xmb with more themes kinda reminding me of borderlands with the bazillion guns to choose from, now if only there were as much choice for stuff i wanted. Any comment on the US store getting tbe 1st bttf free?,AND now thier plus is getting AWSOME content ahead of us, GOW etc, just another normal update.

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 3:22 pm   170

@ Walboro

Looks that way fella :(

To be honest, the review from the US release, states that it’s riddled with bugs & glitches that makes it unplayable, especially online!

Walboro 31 August, 2011 @ 3:25 pm   171

Hopefully it’ll get a midweek update like Skarlet did.

 
Opt1mus76 31 August, 2011 @ 3:30 pm   172

Hey Ross, obscure question for you (so I’m not sure of my chances of getting an answer) but is there a really good reason why we haven’t had Sensible World of Soccer on PSN? I’m sure its Codies that own Sensible Software and Xbox Live has had it for ages. I’d even settle for it as a Mini for SWOS on the go.
And if you do speak to Codies can you suggest ToCa and CM Rally games make an appearance in classics (how about with percentage of monies being donated to CM’s Vision charity too)

 
Hemelskonijn 31 August, 2011 @ 3:33 pm   173

Ross can you tell my why beyond good and evil is only for download as localized version ?, I seriously dislike playing games in dutch and if i had known you would force me to i would not have bought it. Like with many title the PS store lacks information that could make some one buy or not buy a title. I get localizing titles makes for more sales but to force the dutch version on to dutch players is just out of line and i know not a single person who wants to play it this way (even worse no one i know wants to buy it now because of the over-localization).

Will there be an update to turn it back in to English? and if not where can i make a claim to get my money back?

Urahara454 31 August, 2011 @ 3:36 pm   174

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_PFmk7yzXE <—- My reaction to this update, my psp has now been hacked and I am playing Wild Arms right this very second, so it doesn't matter if you release every PS1 game ever made on the store you won't get a single penny out of me anymore

 

1,99 for just 1 LBP2 costume is a bit extravagant.
The level package was great fun, the costumes are overpriced (and don´t look good).

 
guitardevil6 31 August, 2011 @ 3:48 pm   176

Kind of expected US and EU updates to never synch up, since there’s two versions of the games that need to be released. EU has a number of territories that the game would need to clear in, additional languages in the game would need to be checked. (modnation racers being twice the memory size in EU store than in US due to languages)

I don’t understand the testing of the import titles we’re going to be getting tho… I’m guessing you have lists of EU games that have passed licensing, but not the testing phase. If this same game is available on US store, what stops you from publishing on EU store? Rights ownership I know about, but if anyone could help shed some light it would be much appreciated.

I’m not up in arms about there being not much great content the last few weeks, it just helps me get back into games I have just sitting on my shelf and never finished :D I’m looking at Lost Planet 2 in particular…

RedeyedRonin 31 August, 2011 @ 3:55 pm   177

ok. ross answer this why has half of my plus content got the same download time stamp therefore has been pushed up my list it the second time this has happened now sort out the untidy mess that is the download list please! WE NEED TABS! (DEMO,ADD-ON ECT…)

What are the possibilities of ever getting dynamic avatars?

 

ya gotta love how they ignore ppl with a real question but only awnser the suck-ups. your almost starting 2 wonder how SCEE is keeping itself up it seems more like it´s dragging down SCEA-SCEJ
it seems more they paying SCEE bills for their bad managment.
and if any off you guys wondering we missinga lot more content than PS1 games even normal psn games.

Shou_Kobayashi 31 August, 2011 @ 3:57 pm   180

After reading this, I don’t believe any “QA testing” bull anymore ->

http://ow.ly/6hCsf

RedeyedRonin 31 August, 2011 @ 3:58 pm   181

@guitardevil6
really even though we have benn getting equal stuff pretty much the last year ohhh well the us hasn’t got splinter cell trillogy hd yet hahaha

 
Rammstone 31 August, 2011 @ 4:02 pm   182

The “Wrecked: Revenge Revisited WeaponsTrailer” is missing from the store, but listed here

 

@Hemelskonijn

set your ps3 too english then start the game offline. after starting the game offline you can just go online inside the game and it should stay english

 
Stonesthrow 31 August, 2011 @ 4:09 pm   184

Meh, lousy update again.. but atleast Resistance is open for everyone now..

Too much into Deus Ex now anyway..

 
RemyX-1988 31 August, 2011 @ 4:09 pm   185

This is bogus! It’s ridicilous! It’s unheard of! It’s the lowest of the lowest! It’s disgusting! It’s ugly! It’s unbelievable and it’s just plain dumb! Why the hell do we not have the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection yet? What’s so special about those Americans to get it before us? Hell, even the Xbox Live Marketplace got it today in Europe. Where are always put behind. Are we less important? I wouldn’t say so, because Europe is bigger than the United Debts of America. Why do we have to wait? Isn’t the game ready? I’m sure it is! It’s just another low excuse to make us wait, as SCEE seems to do all the time. I’m not saying you’re not bringing good content and deals, because you do; but let’s be honest… we want to be treated as equals to the Americans. On more than one occasion, we have to wait longer and pay more for the SAME conent. Why? We don’t just get our money… we have to earn it, too!

Don’t call me a whiner, because I’m not. But today, I might just be a little bit. I want my MORTAL KOMBAT ARCADE KOLLECTION on PS3 and I want it TODAY! What can possibly so difficult about that? It was said to be released on August 31st, 2011. And there was no word on exclusivity for certain regions, if I recall!

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 4:10 pm   186

Yo I‘m back just bought Dues Ex-HR my money was suppose to go in Wallet but this Lame update the question is, is the game any-good?

who post 16 you do know if ppl are in moderation when post are pasted numbers orders will changes anyway it not against the law to fight for exclusive.

but it is unfair to get the advantage of a company look it up. M$ has said clearly it is basis.

so haveing power over others is not against the law?

so september we get a “few ps1 classics” a few so not many & what in october, november i expected a quick track of Ps1 classics week after week.

since you said we getting imports.

 
guitardevil6 31 August, 2011 @ 4:15 pm   187

@RedeyedRonin
I agree we do get some stuff at equal time, but not all and certain things arrive late to our store. That’s true about the splinter cell trilogy and will be getting that soon.

I’m not complaining about late arrivals, I just wondered about the process of things like the US imports, and maybe even avatars. I realise it would take more time to publish something on EU and have it synch with a US release date.

 

@Skookie30

we getting a few more disney games, any good game coming next week is P3P finally about 2 years later full price stupid thing would be it´s been on sale many times on U.S store.

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 4:16 pm   189

lol United Debts of America. :D

you wouldn’t think it the americans are in debt & nearly bankrupt what are they doing with all the oil money etc a rich oil country.

 

@Skookie30

i seen a list with country lending U.S money and it seems china and japan basicly own U.S

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 4:20 pm   191

the price for P3P is 25 quid & not the unusually price of 28 quid that be for 2 weeks i already got it on UMD

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 4:22 pm   192

maybe that why SCEA gets special treatment from Sony.

 

@Skookie30

doubt it or else japan would be just as crappy as SCEE
and we all know they killing off UMD hell they alrdy killed off pspGO and now they come with a crap psp model.

 
devil_spawn666 31 August, 2011 @ 4:27 pm   194

Hi Ross,

Any idea when we’re going to see the Test Drive Unlimited 2 Explorer Pack DLC on the PlayStation store?

 
Jesse-Blue 31 August, 2011 @ 4:29 pm   195

@ Ross
Re. Microsoft way of conduction business.

More interesting though then public knowledge is, why Sony, if aware of this, let this bullying by M$ to be done to them?
Why not sue them?

Beside the moral issue (which is obviously something M$ couldn’t care less given their track record) it sounds like it’s more then just bordering on being illegal.
After all there are laws that try to prevent that companies try to crush the competition by unfair means.

In the lawsuit EU agains M$ it was about:
Abusing their market position and discriminatory licensing.

While the details are certainly different, that is EXACTLY what they are doing again here.
They are gaining an unfair advantage over Sony not with having great products themselves but with bullying publishers to give preference to Microsoft or at least never give preference to Sony or otherwise be ‘punished’ by them.
Only this time not with Windows but their Xbox brand!

This is crazy and I am shocked publishers accept these terms from M$.
I personally find this pretty appalling business practice.

 
Cringles88 31 August, 2011 @ 4:33 pm   196

That Bodycount demo is terrible. Thanks even having a demo. I know not to waste money on even renting it.

 
Dvil0020 31 August, 2011 @ 4:33 pm   197

RemyX-1988 is rite why should we be treated differently from them its funny how EU is closer to japan than america but yet we have 2 wait a extra week or 2 just to get the content they get we waste or hard earned cash to buy there games and overpriced content on the store but we dont get treated as equals and on top of that they got bad management picking and choosing whos questions they wanna anwser and if they dont wanna bother they just ignore you ppl if you want to be treated fairly i subject that you complain to sony themselfs thats the only way they will listen to you

 
chrisandsheva 31 August, 2011 @ 4:34 pm   198

Can someone help me with a math problem?… it’s about the 20% discount for buying plus, i was sure that it normally cost £39.99 and the discount price is now £32.99 have i lost my faculties or is that not adding (subtracting) up i thought the price would/should now be £32 tops,. i guess it must be my ‘age’ catching up on me.(private joke)…. no seriously i’m not to bothered over 99 pennies But i Do have issues with bieng lied to and bieng taken as a div… that is if my math is correct, if i’m wrong then my bad and please excuse me.

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 4:38 pm   199

@ chrisandsheva

No, you’re right it should be £31.99 as 20% is £8!

 
maddogarchie64 31 August, 2011 @ 4:38 pm   200

how come people who preorder the baconing don’t get it today? Please answer

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 4:42 pm   201

@ Cringles88

Is Bodycount that bad??

Read some reviews & some were good, ok & bad!

Every game that i’ve thought would be good this year has turned out terrible!

Can anyone state whether Deus EX is actually any good, as I would prefer a gamers point of view, instead of some article that has probably received money to state good things?

Was looking forward to Dead Island until I watched a full 20min video & not my cup of tea!

Resistance 3 me thinks :), then i’ll hold off for RAGE & BF3. Will wait for sales, for other titles.

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 4:45 pm   202

@ maddogarchie64

Have you downloaded the trial yet?

I thought if you preordered it, you download the trial & it updates to the full version, unless you still have to install the unlock key?

I was led to believe from James, that it’s only the DLC character that you don’t receive today!

 
Goonboy 31 August, 2011 @ 4:47 pm   203

FREE REALMS lol

 
Cringles88 31 August, 2011 @ 4:52 pm   204

@ Catkiller1

At least for me, I didn’t enjoy the demo, or the controls. It’s not for me at all. I removed it from my Lovefilm rental list.

But then again, you said Dead Island isn’t for you, & I quiet liked the 20 minute video. So Bodycount is at least worth a download. You would need to make your own opinion on it.

Also can’t wait for RAGE & BF3.

 
subra87 31 August, 2011 @ 4:55 pm   205

Hey Ross any chance we will ever see suikoden 2 in ps1 classics?

 
SuperJag86 31 August, 2011 @ 5:06 pm   206

Hi Ross,
I just have a suggestion for a feature that would be really useful in a future update of the store interface.
It would be really handy if there was a much easier way to access previously purchased content from the PSN. The download list does show everything but it can be a pain to use when searching for an old title that might not be for sale anymore (like Outrun).
Just for comparison, Steam shows all your purchases but greyed out and then you can decide to see everything or only what you have installed.
Maybe a good idea for PSN would be to have the ‘Downloads’ link go to a page which shows all purchased content grouped by type (PS3, PSP, DLC … Etc).
This is something that has been bugging me for ages and I’m sure it would benefit everyone who uses PSN.
I hope you can pass this suggestion on to the team or please let me know who I should get in contact with?
Thanks! :)

 
finlandmonkey 31 August, 2011 @ 5:16 pm   207

No MK kollection :( Plus users better get a BIG discount on that.

 
alexandremu 31 August, 2011 @ 5:23 pm   208

Altered Beast?

 

I honestly have to ask:

Are CAPCOM seriously trying to sell a glorified options page to owners of their game?

Has someone been playing “UPGRADE COMPLETE!” too much and forgotten that they’re actually living in the real world?

STRYKIE 31 August, 2011 @ 5:25 pm   210

No Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection? Ha.
SCEE, being useless since 1994.

 
HazelAM 31 August, 2011 @ 5:33 pm   211

no GOW demo.

down to the publisher i suppose?

who published it anyway?

some badly run little publisher that doesn’t have a european arm obviously. o_O

and i read about that little clause ms apparently has with titles on their marketplace.
i say they’re being childish.
“if i can’t have it first i don’t want it.

and it’s cutting off their nose to spite their face.

i’m glad sony don’t have a policy like that, it means we can get titles like braid, castle crashers and limbo, while the xbox can’t get titles that were previously on ps3.

 
Hemelskonijn 31 August, 2011 @ 5:38 pm   212

@dgnfly

Thanks man after a clean reinstall and a “first boot” without network support it worked just as it should in the first place. My PlayStation was already set to English to prevent stuff like this from happening and though i love that there is a fix there should at least be a menu option if they are going to ignore my presets.

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 5:39 pm   213

hey at the top do we have to Say SEN now & Not PSN WTH sony why change it god sakes new name, same Tripe.

here some great news for other countries taken from EG.

” It seems the PlayStation Store is unaffected for now, though SEN will add more content in due course, as well as branching out into a number of new markets, with Music Unlimited reaching Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, The Netherlands and Belgium by the end of the year.”

i say join the club.

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 5:42 pm   214

* plz note this part…

“though SEN will add more content in due course”

it may take 4 years though. :P

 

@maddogarchie64

I was able to download it – as you are a plus user you should be able to download it from plus section – it should say The Baconing free – clicking on it adds the trial and unlock key

 

What’s with Assassin’s Creed Revelations BETA? Really lookin’ forward to it.

 
CoolRichy007UK 31 August, 2011 @ 6:32 pm   217

why from dust & rock of ages delayed again and on xbox i swear i could get them games on ps3 faster then sony could

 
west1980 31 August, 2011 @ 6:33 pm   218

all I care about is mortal kombat arcade collection, not even a word to say if its been delayed! so many people asking yet not one reply.

It sounds like to me scee have messed something up with its release today,otherwise we would have had some sort of response.

I was looking foward to this all day, thanks scee..

JRTJAZZ 31 August, 2011 @ 6:37 pm   219

i don’t normally comment here but i wanted to say i’m disappointed with the fact Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection and Ugly Americans (although this would seem to be an SCEA only release) weren’t released today…LUCKILY i have a XBOX 360 so i could still get them,i haven’t been that bothered with SCEE shafting us since 2008 (when i bought my PS3) with SCEA having PS1 and PSN exclusives but today takes the cake Sony,i’d rather buy PSN than XBLA games but now i refuse to wait

 
RemyX-1988 31 August, 2011 @ 6:58 pm   220

Never mind that MORTAL KOMBAT ARCADE KOLLECTION; got is somewhere else instead.

tekkenism 31 August, 2011 @ 7:09 pm   221

No PsOne classics again.. ;-(
Will we ever get Tekken 3?
PsOne Wish-list:
Ninja – Shadow of Darkness
Jackie Chan’s Stuntmaster
Nightmare Creatures I
Nightmare Creatures II

SkiLLz-uK 31 August, 2011 @ 7:11 pm   222

i dont usually comment either but not putting MK Arcade Kollection on today? Are you serious us Europeans have to be last every time and im sick off it!

 
Gekidami 31 August, 2011 @ 7:12 pm   223

Seems like Plus content is becoming more and more scarce. I didnt become a plus member to get 1 or 2€ off stuff and have free Mega Drive games. Gives us more interesting free content, and bigger discounts.

And when are those ‘import’ PSX games going to hit the Store, so we can finally get some decent PSOne games?

 
maddogarchie64 31 August, 2011 @ 7:15 pm   224

huh. Baconing wasn’t out when I checked it

 
Bovrillor 31 August, 2011 @ 7:15 pm   225

Whoever said Bodycout sucks wasn’t kidding.

The controls lag like hell and it’s SO buggy. Avoid like the plague.

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 7:25 pm   226

I‘m 100% agree with Gekidami we waited 4 blasted years for SCEE to catch up we promise words & Not action.

so plz dont be offended SCEE when i say you f-ing suck balls lol ;)

 
Skookie30 31 August, 2011 @ 7:28 pm   227

OMG is this true on play.com it said catherine the game is out in october.

i hope it is :o

Sones1990 31 August, 2011 @ 7:32 pm   228

Once again sony fails to bring its loyal customers wat they want. Weres MKArcade They have it in the US surprise surprise oh well bk to the xbox

PREYDRAGON 31 August, 2011 @ 7:49 pm   229

whats the current situation with the ps1 classics Destruction Derby 2 and Destruction Derby Raw ????????

ManueleunaM 31 August, 2011 @ 7:58 pm   230

You know what would be cool? X-men: 2 Clone Wars and with trophies.

 
SuperKAS 31 August, 2011 @ 8:24 pm   231

I have seen the content in the US PS store today, and they have ALOT of PSone games and MINIS (even SNK arcade classic in MINIS!) that isn`t in the EU store. And they even have PSone Japan import classics with among other things, Sonic Wings/Aero Fighters. WHY DONT WE GET ALL THAT?????????????

1. When do we get Japan classic import games in EU store?
2. When do we get the SNK mini games in EU store?
3. And when do we get so many PSone games in EU store? Legacy of Kain, Medal of Honor etc.

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 9:16 pm   232

@ Skookie30

The date for Catherine is indeed correct! :)

Can’t wait!

wardragon989 31 August, 2011 @ 9:22 pm   234

Can we get some avatars from the anime Bleach up before/after the release of Bleach: Soul Resurrection? I’m tired of that one guy having that Renji avy. xD

Doomrunner666 31 August, 2011 @ 9:22 pm   235

really disappointed that the EU psn store has shafted us mk fans again no mk kollection yet but the americans got it yesterday any ideas as to why this is? as I was REALLY looking forward to playing it getting seriously pi**ed off with psns attitude towards us europeans

 
Catkiller1 31 August, 2011 @ 9:42 pm   236

@ Doomrunner666

TBH they have done us a favour, as the title has been slated all over the US Forums due to it being a complete buggy mess & the netcode is broken.

Hopefully they patch it on release as I would rather wait for a better version.

Still frustrating though, as we didn’t get the God Of War Collection 2 demo either, amongst other things!

 
sithknight666 31 August, 2011 @ 10:49 pm   237

If it wasnt for the cloud game save feature that just saved me from ripping my hair out when I got ylod I’d cancel my ps plus subscription because it’s been pathetic regards freebies for ages. Comic zone and streets of rage 2 were the last things I had towards making me believe it’s worth paying for.

 
bluespook 31 August, 2011 @ 11:14 pm   238

Hi Ross

Are we getting the remaining hyperdimension neptunia dlc as we have 84 but I think the us has 90 items up for download & also is australia getting cubixx hd?

AshrafBot 31 August, 2011 @ 11:30 pm   239

Any news on Deus Ex PSN avatars?

 

@ NO. 16
I did wonder what the hellwas up with Micro$it getting dlc early off of companies. It really mekes my blood boil the way that they constantly force the issue creating dissentionin the gaming community. But they don’t care…as long as they can one up Sony with their inferiority complex surronding thir own hardware, then causing strife amongst gamers, along with the strife and worry they must be causing 3rd party companies with their blackmailtechniques. Good on Sony for not responding in kind. At least they have their scruples there.

FurryFreak 31 August, 2011 @ 11:46 pm   241

Hi Ross. I hope the 2nd part of the PSP sale has more titles that I’m after. All I got from this lot was AC: Bloodlines. Really hoping to see both Locoroco 1 & 2, MGS: PO & DGN, and Resistance Retribution all getting price reductions. If you can make it happen I’d so grateful! :)

Also, I just thought I’d mention that the description for the PSone title, LoK: Soul Reaver, is actually a description of Soul Reaver 2. The mistake appears both on the store and on the games background image on the XMB.

 
LightningSamus 1 September, 2011 @ 12:09 am   242

LightningSamus 1 September, 2011 @ 12:11 am   243

For all moaning about MK: DONT BUY IT! Buyed on Us STore… waste of Money.

Its the biggest piece of Crap i ever played. Online is laggy, Diffculity is horrible even on Very Easy. Checked on Emulator and i have no problems… but here OMG!

I never ever buy a ReRelease of a Classic Fight Game. (SF2 was also crap)

 
KRyPTceltrix 1 September, 2011 @ 1:07 am   246

chrisredfield_97 1 September, 2011 @ 6:40 am   247

hey guys all i want is my god of war origins collection and mk arcade collection and i’m done please Ross give us an exact day about mortal kombat arcade kollection is going to be realeased in european store oh yeah i almost forgot and can you tell us about the promised free psn avatars beyond good and evil ok? i don’t excpect an answer but if you can please i’m all the time here in ps blog see ya :)

 
chrisredfield_97 1 September, 2011 @ 7:11 am   248

oh and yeah about mk arcade collection please because you had never realeased it as we excpected for august 31st if you realease it next week do a discount on it for example 20% off if anyone agree with me it’s free to express what he want to say ok? ;)

Omegastoopreme 1 September, 2011 @ 8:12 am   249

Again the PSP gets NOTHING worth grabbing.

I cant remember the last time it got a decent demo let alone anything else.

At least get ya buts in gear with the PS1 classics Sony, or even just give us what the US already has that would be a start!

Omegastoopreme 1 September, 2011 @ 8:20 am   250

Actually don’t know why I even bothered making a comment. as per usual, the feedback from Sony is on page 1 only, the only comment after that is on page 2 and its in response to the complaint that they aren’t answering and it just says be patient the post has only been up for 14 mins, then they never write ANYTHING else. Yeah right, good customer service there Sony..

guybrush3_16 1 September, 2011 @ 9:19 am   251

Hi Ross, I asked last week (with no reply) if there was any deals coming up (free games I prefer) to renew ya playstation plus as there are none to date on offer. My contract ends on my birthday actually 07/09/11.

Please can you reply to this as I see no point in renewing it just yet.

 

@chrisredfield_97 the beyond good&evil avatars were a offer for American pluser’s.we got a 20% discount

Dudley0Neill 1 September, 2011 @ 10:45 am   253

Hi there,

Update on replacement games for NZ plus users?

I take it you do not care about the NZ market. I mean you fixed it so Australian PLUS users could have Soul Reaver, but neglected fix the issue for NZ.

 
Bealinator 1 September, 2011 @ 11:02 am   254

Just had a thought Ross, why don’t you keep this limited time discount on PS+ permanent? Surely that would entice more to subscribe? Personally I will wait untill it drops down to £19.99 for a year’s subscription.

Just had an even better thought Ross, why not scrap all this ps+ nonsense altogether and concentrate your efforts on providing ALL ps3 users with a better service.

I just rang SONY support and they said MKAK is not there because the publisher failed to give it to them.. yet Ross said its in the pre-release system? [Deleted] is going on? One of you is lying to me.

Its a disgrace that nobody has had the decency to reply from sony to say whats happening with mortal kombat arcade kollection.
everybody else is playing it whilst us europeans dont even have it.I am so angry and disappointed that there is no reply’s to people’s questions.
If you cared about your customers you would at least reply,but obviously not.
your ps plus service has been getting worse & worse nothing but discounts on games I would never play.
lets hope you redeem yourselves in septembers update.

 
funkydan 1 September, 2011 @ 6:30 pm   269

Hi Ross, would you think we might see the psone game Rollcage getting a psn store release anytime soon please? Also, any news on the playstation plus update for September? Cheers :)

@JD-zO_o

Hello Ross

As there’s not a lot of replys today im hopping you come back on tomorrow.

My question is.

Is there any chance of getting PS2 game SSX Tricky on the PSN STORE to download before the new game comes out it would be absolutely brilliant to play this game and im hopping to get a positive reply from you.

SHAFTRULES 2 September, 2011 @ 11:14 am   272

totally random here! what’s the chances of old games like soviet strike & nuclear strike been on the psn store? loved those games back in the day.

TristramMcDonald 2 September, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   273

where’s Mortal Kombat arcade collection??

 
bull3t_sup3rn0va 2 September, 2011 @ 1:49 pm   274

i’ve been waiting ages for the MKAK,put a tenner on my account and find out it’s still “pre-publish”. well that’s [Deleted], the americans have already got it.

 
Catkiller1 2 September, 2011 @ 2:25 pm   275

@ Ross

I understand you’re a very busy man, but you have to stop with stating that you’ll be around for comments, as you’re not doing yourself any favours whatsoever fella!

“I’ll see you from 2pm – bye for now”, You state this but at 13:31 you also stated “The post has been live for 14 minutes. Patience, please”, then nothing…..nada……zip!

This is why some people get frustrated with the communication aspect of this Blog.

Just don’t say anything apart from “i’ll be here for some comments”. Cover youself then LOL ;)

I appreciate how stressful your job is & I don’t envy you in the slightest!

 
Catkiller1 2 September, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   276

@ TristramMcDonald

Delayed & no statement as to why (By Warner Bros), apart from Ross stating it is in pre-publish!!

Might be due to the major issues it currently has.

Alot of users from the US, are stating that it’s riddled with gamebreaking bugs, glitches & it’s a big laggy mess, due to the inferior netcode!

Hopefully they release it with a patch.

 
Menorkamer 3 September, 2011 @ 3:43 pm   277

“but there is one more treat coming on Friday/Saturday for this month before we kick off September.”

Nothing? Haven’t checked the store today, anything added?

 
SalmonCannon 3 September, 2011 @ 4:26 pm   278

nothing that I can see Menorkamer (its half 4 in the afternoon on saturday as i write this)

 
Catkiller1 3 September, 2011 @ 4:55 pm   279

@ Menorkamer

I think the treat was the Assassins Creed Revelations BETA, lame I know, as we were already aware of this BETA & the date before James stated that. Not exactly a treat is it?

 
Catkiller1 3 September, 2011 @ 4:55 pm   280

Sorry Ross not James lol!

 
Menorkamer 3 September, 2011 @ 5:30 pm   281

Ah, I see:( Thanks.

c9dartfinish 4 September, 2011 @ 7:54 am   282

Catkiller1 can I have the code for battlefield 2 please, I bought it preowned so could never unlock the vip content.

Is there any news on when we might be likely to see Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain on the EU store (more specifically UK). It’s been on the US store for a while and seems to be in high demand over here to.

 
Utima_cloud 4 September, 2011 @ 12:53 pm   284

Hi Ross,

Is there any chance of us getting breath of fire IV on ps1 on the PSN? I know the american psn has it already

 

It’s like SCEE just doesn’t care about Europe, we always get things later than US. ALWAYS. Where’s the Mortal Kombat Arcade Trilogy? Or the God of War Origins Demo?! It’s out soon anyway, so why even bother releasing a demo if you’re gonna put it out weeks after the release.

I’m so disappointed.

Chances this gets read by Sony: 0,1% chance. They only read the first two pages or something, hmpf..

would really love downloadable versions of persona 3 portable, kingdom hearts birth by sleep and crisis core final fantasy 7 so i can keep playing them when i get a psvita

 

@morteth you are a idiot.that’s all

 
Skookie30 5 September, 2011 @ 8:25 am   288

he telling the truth we do get things late even the imports blog was late & still waiting but my feelings tell me we get the 1st imports this week.

didn’t Ross say we getting ps1 classics in september if i was a betting man i say wild arms & PE this week & some others.

there 4 weeks in a months so i expect Ps1 classics every week & not just 2 a week.

 
Skookie30 5 September, 2011 @ 8:31 am   289

also i want to say to Ross you say we get SCEJ imports but my question is…

can we have same title but in english?

what i‘m saying is duo release you say, you get a scej title can we have the same title by SCEA that way it cartier for users that likes japanese & others in english.

 
Catkiller1 5 September, 2011 @ 9:20 am   290

@ Skookie

Fingers crossed it’s Wild Arms at a decent price!

Ross already announced weeks ago that the Japanese imports will remain exact retail copies (Japanese Language). So be aware before purchasing, unless you understand Japanese that is :)

 
Skookie30 5 September, 2011 @ 10:03 am   291

@catkiller i know he said that but i don’t want to see 1 title in jap & not in english.

example say wild arms in japanese not SCEA or xneongears in japanese & not in english.

my fear is we get well know titles in japanese because we cant get the SCEA ones i‘m saying ppl like duo language as well so it make sense wouldn’t it. :D

some friends on my psn list can understand both languages. :)

 
Catkiller1 5 September, 2011 @ 10:10 am   292

I agree, as I would hate to only receive a Japanese version of a game that is rare & hard to get!

What I meant by the above comment, was all Japanese titles that were only ever released in that territory will remain in Japanese, unless the titles were ever released in the west.

So the rare & intruiging titles that are native Japan would be very hard to understand as they won’t translate them to English as it takes too much time & effort for a PS1 game :(

I would like to see Legend Of Dragoon, Tombi/Tomba, Castlevania SOTN & Chronicles & Dragon Quest 7! The first couple of titles I mention are too expensive on ebay :(

 
Skookie30 5 September, 2011 @ 10:17 am   293

yes i agree some jap games are only release in japan very rare games i know of them but some are risky at most but love them to come here but maybe not. ;) a truly adult experience.

 
SHAFTRULES 5 September, 2011 @ 3:03 pm   294

what’s the chances of the old soviet strike,nuclear strike game on the ps3

ShInMeSsAtSu101 5 September, 2011 @ 8:04 pm   295

is breath of fire 4 going to be available on the eu ps store
