One months asking… You could put all the new content for Tomb Raider (TR2, the avatars of anniversary and underworld, TR9 trailer) on “Game Franchises”, Please?
Thank you!!

 

Any chance CoD will be ever available in Poland??

Hey Ross. Where are the new Assassin’s Creed avatars?

SpideyWolvie 23 November, 2011 @ 1:03 pm   4

Any news on the Marvel vs Capcom 3 avatars?

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:38 pm    

    Sadly no update but I believe there are licensing issues with this. So don’t hold your breath for these.

 

When can we expect some Playstation Plus mid-month treats?

This is the fourth month in a row without a mid-month treat!

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:39 pm    

    Sadly I do not know, you would need to take this up with Ross and the PLUS team

 
johnleonhart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   6

Nice to see some more Agarest Zero DLC. Do you know if we can expect more content for this game in the coming weeks? Thanks

 
s-p3ci4L-K 23 November, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   7

are there going to be any Black Friday special offers?
XBLA is getting a ton, not to mention Cyber Monday too

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:41 pm    

    No. This is because we have other sales starting (details to come shortly) which I feel will be much better. So watch this space!

Nice to see some Castlevania: Harmony Of Dispair addons, but when will we see the PSone game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night? Also very interested in the PS1 games Suikoden 1&2.

And seeing you started with PS1 imports, Chrono Cross would be lovely (which was released on US PSN earlier this month).

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:42 pm    

    Not too sure when we will see that game as it is not on my radar but I will try and see what I can find out.

 

Hey Andy, would it be possible for Sony to contact the publishers of some of the following games to get them up on the EU store (particularly in Australia if they aren’t already).

– Monpoly (EA Mobile): Is is currently ONLY released for the following territories: France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom, would like to see it on the AU store.
– Prinny 2 (NIS America): Was NOT released for the following territories: Australia and New Zealand, would also like to see this on the AU store.
– Phantasy Star Portable (Sega): It would be great to have this on my PSPgo along with the second game.
– Test Drive Unlimited (Atari): One of my favourite racing games which I bought on UMD some time ago. I would love to purchase a digital copy for my PSPgo.
– LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 (Traveller’s Tales): With years 5-7 having been released this week it would be good to purchase the first game as a digital download for my PSPgo.

PS: I tried contacting most of the publishers directly but they were unresponsive. Hopefully Sony will have a better chance than 1 lone consumer.

NOTE: I stayed up extra late tonight so this comment would be seen so I would greatly appreciate a reply. ^_^

Cheers!

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:43 pm    

    I will ask but asdly no promises as it is up to the publishers what they wish to release at the end of the day.

AaronSOLDIER 23 November, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   10

Can you ask Square Enix if we can have Final Fantasy 4 PSone classic (Not the PSP version).

 
hollandnigel 23 November, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   11

Thanks for putting the 3D and Move support on there!!

 

Also Thrillville: Off The Rails which is published on the EU store is the French version. I contacted Sony about this a few months ago but I don’t think they ever changed anything, there are also complaints about this dating back to 2009: http://bit.ly/rZzpxH, http://bit.ly/uzdFjF. In this case I tried contacting Lucas Arts, Activision and Sony but nothing was done to solve the problem for potential future buyers.

TheBigBoss0001 23 November, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   13

When will we get Crash Bash PS1-classic? When a guy asked you in September you said that it’s one of the games that was very close to being released.

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:45 pm    

    I personally don’t remember saying that but I willl ook into this and try and get some answers.

Tim_Van_Dam1986 23 November, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   14

any news on jurassic park?

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:52 pm    

    Good news – its coming very soon and you should see it before the end of the year

    Bad news – I can’t announce the offical release date yet, sorry.

    However have a look in the PLUS section today once the upload has happened, you will see some good news there about Jurassic Park.

 
ShogunDarius 23 November, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   15

Is Saints Row 2 available for Saints Row 3 people yet? and where’s Ross?

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:54 pm    

    Saints Row 2 should be available now, are you experiencing problems with this?

    Ross is at a meeting, why? Am I not good enough :-(

 
deadsleepx 23 November, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   16

Andy do you have an update on the missing heavy rain dlc form the move edition its been over 6 months.

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:55 pm    

    According to my sources, this issue has been fixed however if you are still experiencing issues with this then please contact customer services.

Loads of new games have been added to the Essentials range on UMD any chance of these games(mostly Sony first party titles) having their prices adjusted on the store? The games are now over £10 cheaper.

 
almighty-slayer 23 November, 2011 @ 1:10 pm   19

Nothing again.

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 1:59 pm

I asked last week but got no reply so I will ask again this week is there any chance for some WWE avatars?

 
MorganTPN 23 November, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   24

Is there any news on the release date of Jurassic Park, there doesn’t seem to be any definitive answer for Europe.

CardcaptorStacey 23 November, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   25

Still no Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space?

 
CookieMonsterES 23 November, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   26

Hey, Andy,

Do you know if the Uncharted 3 Fortune Hunters is a temporal deal or is it going to be available permanently?

Thanks.

Andy! (Not Ross as some people STILL cant read who posts these) Whats going on with Tombi, ages ago Ross posted a topic about pending titles – any info would be appreciated.

 

When will the Pink Knight for the Castle Crashers will be released?

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:05 pm    

    Unsure as I have not had an update about it for some time now, I will try and find out some info.

 
wardragon989 23 November, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   29

Hi, I don’t suppose we can get some anime avatars? Or even trophy icons as avatars? (that could bring in a lot of money for developers)

 
TroubleMaker411 23 November, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   30

P.s. DISCLAIMER – Any comments I feel are disrespectful I will ignore, so please be polite

    We do have a PSN movie store remember, also you can always get LoveFilm.

    Personally I love Mubi however.

nhjhggfdee3 23 November, 2011 @ 1:15 pm   32

    Really sorry about that.

Hi Andy. Any news on resident evil 2 and 3 psone classics coming to the EU store? do you have an eta? or is it worth just getting it off the us store? Thanks.

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:12 pm    

    Sadly I don’t have an offical release date yet but they are on their way and being processed.

Domino2097 23 November, 2011 @ 1:17 pm   38

FFFanatic2008 23 November, 2011 @ 1:17 pm   39

Good Afternoon
i was just wondering if there was any news on WKC2 dlc as the US got the guild system tickets and more dlc this week and also patch 1.01 which we also received.
will EU be getting the guild system tickets soon or will we be left out?
Thanks for any info you can give me

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:15 pm    

    It’s my understanding we should see this in the next couple of weeks but I don’t have an ETA yet.

 
TheKillerSnowman 23 November, 2011 @ 1:18 pm   40

US has NHL on the PS3, can we get that to? we have nothing good to the PS3. only Vidzone is good.

 
CHRiSK-UK 23 November, 2011 @ 1:19 pm   41

£47.99 for Rayman Origins is just too much. I just don’t understand why these downloadable games are priced so high. I can get that game elsewhere on disc for £30.

Dungeon Defenders? What’s holding this one up in the SCEE territory?

The trial that’s available on the US store has localisation text/language already in it. So I guess the delay is a legal one?

Also, what’s the status of the patch currently with QA for Under Siege? Seed Studios are a tiny team (5 people I think) and their creation is getting dumped on every time they submit to QA. It’s quite obviously breaking them. Take that as support for the little man and a concern that a game I like is being put by the wayside.

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:18 pm    

    Dungeon Defenders – I am not at liberty to say as this is confidentual, sorry.

    Same goes for Under Siege

 
Bealinator 23 November, 2011 @ 1:19 pm   43

Give me my Tombi! But seriously, 2012 release, surely?

And for all those of you looking at this – SC Trilogy HD is selling on Amazon for £10.49 at the moment under lightning deals. Glad I held off!

flip20077 23 November, 2011 @ 1:20 pm   44

So Please Please Andy can you give us details On Jurassic Park when it will be on psn Please thank-you

 

Hey Andy

any news about the Beyond good and evil avatars? Meant to be free for buyers of the game :(

Oh and anything regarding a demo for pixeljunk SideScroller?

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:24 pm    

    Sadly no news on the BG&E avatars

    as for Side Scroller, I am unaware of any demo in the works

 
ScooterMix 23 November, 2011 @ 1:24 pm   46

hi Andy i know didnt ask anyone but i ask again since think you where too busy reply dont blame you. here some qrestions

2. I waiting for USA Imports are they on there way or near future?.

3. Know saint row 3 pass are they comeing to single pack. since i dont want to gt pass i want to wait for the pack.

I know try best everyweek but anyways thx

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:26 pm    

    1) I have not heard anything about this coming to PSN so I doubt it but you never know, maybe one day.

    2) Yes they are on route, ETA is still not confirmed however

    3) Not sure, will have to ask THQ

    Cheers

Shadowkat13 23 November, 2011 @ 1:24 pm   47

Good to see the sale extended, havent had funds on so I wasn’t able to grab some of the titles I wanted

One question, what is Killzone 3 Multi-Play?

 

€30 for COD4, you have got to be taking the p**s. It’s $20 on the US store. Ripping us off much?

 
TalllPaul 23 November, 2011 @ 1:25 pm   49

I would have got COD4 if it wasn’t hacked to death :(

Great to see the plus discounts, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was addicting on the PS2 so I may consider getting that :D

Will any of the new PS Vita trailers be going on the store in the near future? :D

 

“P.s. DISCLAIMER – Any comments I feel are disrespectful I will ignore, so please be polite.”

Is this your way of saying: don’t say anything bad about the price that we have on psn for this game altough you can get the game, new, on disc, with gamecase and manual lower than this price?

    Andy Stewart 23 November, 2011 @ 2:30 pm    

    Not at all, its about don’t disrespect myself and other PSn community members otherwise I will not bother responding. I want to help you, not to act as a human punchbag.

    Feel free to say what you like about the pricing, I just can’t comment.
