‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 19th October 2011

PlayStation Store (via PS3, PSP and Media Go)

Hello everybody, me again! It’s Wednesday so that means new content for you to download and enjoy! So what have we got coming to the store for you today?

Well first off there is Okabu, I saw this game a couple of months back and this is a game that anyone can have fun with. Take to the skies and guide cloud-whale brothers Kumulo and Nimbe on their epic adventure. Save the once-peaceful lands of Okabu from the diabolical Doza and their army of industrial contraptions.

We also have Worms Crazy Golf available from today with a hilarious mixture of the explosive action of Worms and the puzzle based challenges of crazy golf! All of the trademark Worms humour, comic violence, and cartoon visuals are present, combined with addictive yet accessible golf gameplay. Who ever though golf could be so much fun?

Don’t miss out on Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken also available from the store today. Play as Hardboiled Chicken and use a slew of weapons and explosives to destroy the evil penguin regime. Step into this stunning cinematic platform adventure game offering full solo and co-op campaigns with stereoscopic 3D support.

And finally I wanted to mention that Need for Speed: The Run demo is available from today. I am sure I don’t need to tell you all about it but if you do not know about this game yet I would recommend you download and check this.

*UPDATE*

It has come to my attention that there have been some issues with customers who bought the Borderlands Game Of The Year edition. I just wanted to let you know that we are aware of this problem and our technicians are working to get this corrected for you by providing a new Borderland full game file to at the to top of your download list. This should be done hopefully within a week.

Well that’s it for another ‘Heads Up’, see you in the comments section!

Hi Andy

Last week you said you’ll ask Ross and get back to me about any news on Crash Bash but you never did, anyway is there any updates on it, i.e. how far along with it are we?

Thanks

 

No Payday The Heist? Bloody hell SCEE

 

So, I bought the GT5 DLC last night and it cost me full price, despite me having a PS+ subscription. When will I get the difference refunded to my account for the discount I was entitled to? Also, I think I’m still owed a PSOne game this month.

P.S. Can we please go one week without messing something up? Just so I know it’s *possible*.

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 5:22 pm    

    GT5 DLC Update!

    I am happy to inform all the plus members who bought the new GT5 DLC before the plus discount had taken effect that you will be creditied the difference between the standard pricing and plus dicsount pricing to your wallets. However this process will take some time so we do ask for your patience in this matter.

    Sorry for the delay with this information but I have been waiting for confirmation.

 

And month 3 without Playstation Plus mid-month treats!

Shame on you Sony!

 
Chocobo115 19 October, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   5

Heya Andy, any idea when we’ll get Sam % Max season 2 like US did yesterday?

 

WHAT?! Where is our PS Plus Dead Nation? Dissapointment. Huge.

payday the heist refund? after all ive paid and i dont have a game yet.

 

What no mid-month treats for psn + :( ?

lonewolf23786 19 October, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   9

any chance of realeasing the SNK games that were released on Xbox Live over here please?

Garou, KOF 02 UM

 
vherostar 19 October, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   10

Just ordered a new copy of GT5 so might get that DLC at discount.

 
swatchthis 19 October, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   11

So when are we getting PAYDAY The Heist?

pandorasoldier 19 October, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   12

when will we get the infamous 2 blue soundtrack?

 

Hey Andy san

No Plus updates today andy?

Also whats the sitch with the missing avatars for both Beyond good and evil and resi 4?

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:02 pm    

    No news on those avatars yet, as for the Plus update, that is stated at the top of my post.

mixindave 19 October, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   14

disappointed about payday but rocketbirds is worth a look, i got a review copy just over a week ago and its well worth the price and its got a platinum, the music is brilliant. graphics are gameplay are lush. co-op is fun but only offline

After a few awesome weeks, my credit card will not work today. Poor update in my opinion, but well received XD there’s a lot to play with RAGE, Batman Arkham City, etc.

 

Ignore the plus content part -_-

DUH! i missed it lol

 
FrostScythe1 19 October, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   18

hi andy i thought the batman arkham city catwomen bundle pack was free to users who purchase new copy? im confused can you help me out?

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:27 pm    

    It is free if you bought the disc copy, this DLC pack is for customers who by a preowned copy and want want the extra DLC which for preowned customers is more likely to have been used already.

    However if you bought the disc copy and its not preowned, then you should not need this DLC pack.

 
k1ll1ng5pr33-NL 19 October, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   19

Oh damn, rickroll time.

 
Suzzopher 19 October, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   20

@7 I agree, a refund for Payday The Heist please. Then I can go and download it from the American store.

Can you guys ever do an update that doesn’t wind everyone up? I used to try and give you guys the benefit of the doubt, but week after week this year there has been mistake after mistake. The GT5 issue for those with Plus who purchased yesterday is really shocking.

Oh and my free PSOne game for this month would be nice.

 
Roman_234 19 October, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   21

Any news why the Atelier Totori DLC isn’t available in the Netherlands?

 
green_shorts 19 October, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   22

And still no MK kollection? and is that all we get is crappy discounts for the mid month plus treats? any chance in some WWE avatars?

 
guitardevil6 19 October, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   23

Thankfully nothing for me this, need to save the money for Batman this Friday!!

I saw that the US got new Sam & Max episodes, any idea when we’ll get them?

Are you doing a new sale each week now? Do you take suggestions?

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:30 pm    

    Not a new sale every week but they will be more frequent. As for suggestions, I am always interested in suggestions.

 

WHAT THE F*** WHERE THE F*** IS PAY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
SHAKIRALOVER 19 October, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   25

Where is Payday?

 
CRASHBASHUK 19 October, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   26

hay everyone read about this Final Fantasy XIII-2 in Europe Limited & Crystal Edition’s
http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Final-Fantasy/FF13-2-Limited-amp-Crystal-Edition-s/m-p/13864769#M13594

 

quick Andy, retroactively phone in sick today… claim any sitings of you around the office are visual reverberations based on the resonance frequency of your soul… hide, do something, just get the hell out of there before the comments start piling in!

Glad to see a bikini girl theme by the way. I won’t be buying it, but I’m gonna take it’s mere existence as my mid month treat.

 

Another “SCEE” update.

So “The Heist” was delayed but we still can’t get it the same week as the US?

Poor show.

Alex-1124 19 October, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   29

Sorry to keep asking this, even though I’m now asking again :P

Any update on the Sly Cooper E3 trailer and the Sly avatars?

One last thing, (a good thing haha) really great job on the store front and answering our comments, I’m sure everyone greatly appreciates it as I do.

 
 
Triforce-1976 19 October, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   31

Let me kick it off for the dutch ppl, any news about free realms yet?

And PS. Nice store update :)

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:34 pm    

    Well I had my call with SOE and it looks positive but I can’t offically announce anything yet until I have confirmation.

 

hi andy,
thanks for the nice update. however, im still waiting on the two worlds 2 expansion (pirates of the flying fortress) which was announced to release on october 10th, any news?
thanks

 

Where is the Pink Knight DLC for Castle Crashers?!

 

Are we not getting the Uncharted 3: Fortune Hunter preorder DLC pack??

 
Aussie_Blade 19 October, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   36

Arc the Lad SCEE? Any update on it? Its been 2 weeks since it was supposed to be released, I would have gladly stuck with the japanese version until this was sorted but unfortunately didn’t get it in time. :(

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:40 pm    

    Sadly nothing new since the publishers’ update. When we have an update we will let you know.

Kotatsu2000 19 October, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   37

Where are the new Neo Geo releases that are on the JP and NA stores? We should have had Metal Slug 2 and Shock Troopers weeks ago.

 

Quote from PS Blog, October 5th, 2011:

“Remember to watch out for Store updates throughout the month with additional Plus content information.”

Where is the additional Plus content?

 
chrisandsheva 19 October, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   39

nothing for me, maybe the 60% discount on under siege, andy can you tell us why we no longer have the full game trials,? as i kinda miss that feature from the plus sub, i counted around 30 of them on the US plus last time i looked, and i seen a few other comments last week asking for thier return, thnx.

rabbhimself 19 October, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   40

A refund for my Payday: The Heist pre-order would be nice.

 
CRASHBASHUK 19 October, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   41

ahhh just copy and paste the link to look and read about it

 

Where’s the Socom Special Forces DLC!!!???

The US got it last night and you also announced it last night, what gives?

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:43 pm    

    THE PM for this is looking into it now to see what happened, will update you with any news I get.

    Andy Stewart 19 October, 2011 @ 2:44 pm    

    I have just been informed that this will also go up today with the store publish. So do not fear it will be there when the store goes live.

 
NotoriousR 19 October, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   43

Why can’t Australians download the God of War Directors Discussion Documentary uploaded a few weeks ago? I keep asking, and no one replies. I am sad panda.

CardcaptorStacey 19 October, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   44

Upset there’s no Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space :(

 
XtianHawkGamer 19 October, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   45

Great Update! Thanks for the Heads up!

Question(s)
I was wondering if you guys could release “Syphon Filter 2″ at your store, I mean you already have 1 and 3 nad not to mention US PSN store has it. Why is SF2 left out?

Plus I would love to request releasing “ShaoLin (aka Lord of Fist (Jap))” http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/bigboxshots/2/575772_92547_front.jpg. I really miss playing that game, would mean alot if it was released. :)

Thanks again!

 
Huono_peleis 19 October, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   46

THAT’S IT FOR PLUS?!?

US Plus had Dead Nation, Burn Zombie Burn, Alien Zombie Death, Age of Zombies and Dungeon Defenders DLC for midmonth treats and we get NOTHING!

We didn’t even get a PS1 game this month! We haven’t had any Full game trials for ages!

Plus is a scam!

 
TalllPaul 19 October, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   47

Great update. Nice to see some Dancestar DLC already :D I so want that game

 

Good update BUT..
no,no,nonono!!

UNCHARTED 3 LAUNCH TRALIER
