PlayStation Store Update: PS Vita Launch Edition

Tomorrow, PlayStation Vita launches across the PAL regions and here is the full list of what will be available to download when PlayStation Store is live on the system later this evening. We believe that the PS Vita launch line-up is the strongest in PlayStation history and this list of games and other content, some of which is completely free, is testament to that.

Don’t forget that if you already own Hustle Kings, Top Darts or Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom DLC on PS3, you can also use it on your PS Vita at no extra charge.

Have a blast and look forward to the PS3 store update coming soon. See you (or the digital formations of you) there.

Any hope that we’ll get comics store back in the near future, and be able to re-download comics that we bought? Vita’s screen would be perfect for comics.

It’s not an endorsement for digital downloads when Sony has a history of pulling the plug on a service, with the result that we can’t use the content we paid good money for!

And I know I can still download the comics with the PC app, but I can’t view them on the PC, so they are useless: I’m selling my PSP Go to fund my Vita purchase. There’s no such problem when buying comics from a store; they work no matter what bookshelf I have :P

European_Gamer 21 February, 2012 @ 12:04 pm   2

Is the store being updated later today so we can download the games when we get the Vita tomorrow morning?

    James Gallagher 21 February, 2012 @ 12:05 pm    

    Yes, that is correct. The Store will be live by midnight tonight and I’ll let you know as soon as it is.

 

Australian prices???

 

Awesome!
That 16GB memorycard will be very handy :D

European_Gamer 21 February, 2012 @ 12:06 pm   5

I know what twitter and flickr is, but what is Foursquare?

 

Why is ModNation dearer than on the USA PS Store?? There it’s the same price as Little Deviants etc, in the LOWEST retail game price point. Here it’s in the medium price point??

 

Holy bloody! My PS Vita is ready :D
Can’t wait!!!

 

@Si_85 I second that. It’s about time we had Australian prices on the blog updates. If anything it’ll emphasise the pricing disparity (and we can then import from the UK anyway).

 
goonerrob1104 21 February, 2012 @ 12:08 pm   9

44.99 for f1 and FIFA you can keep it getting the boxed copies a lot cheaper

 

Can you use the foursquare app on the wifi only Vita or is it for the 3G version?

 
Hell-Raiser-85 21 February, 2012 @ 12:09 pm   11

My Vita came today from amazon :) Whats the eta on the store going live? Would be good if you could add the size of each game.

    James Gallagher 21 February, 2012 @ 1:47 pm    

    We’re working on our workflow for this and we’re aware that it’s going to be important to know how much space PS Vita games are going to take up on your memory card. Expect to see them added to Store updates soon.

 

#5 Foursquare is location-based social networking (in a nutshell). Read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foursquare_(website)

Jawad: Good update. Very pleased we’re getting demos of everything too! That 16gb memory card will be very useful.

Can we use Media Go to download this stuff onto our PC, and transfer from there, or will I need to download this on my PS3 if I want everything downloaded and ready to go when I pick up my Vita at 4pm tomorrow?

 
H3KingHawk 21 February, 2012 @ 12:10 pm   13

prices are not good whatsoever, there is just no incentive to buy digital! £45 for fifa is ridiculous!

what is the uncharted DLC for 0.79?

 

Woo! Got my Vita on Saturday finally i can use it for something ;-)

 

So much for a fair pricing of full digital games. Thank KB for physical media.

 

Gutted I won’t have Vita for little while (my wallet still bruised from the festive period) but can I download any of this via PS3 until I have Vita? Would like to have MS:RC’s rare rally cars on my download list for when I get Vita in month or so

 

Will PS3 Store also update today?

 
guitardevil6 21 February, 2012 @ 12:12 pm   18

Excellent! Definitely getting Motorstorm RC, maybe even Hustle Kings. But what is the DLC for Uncharted? I’ve only got Rayman to play at the moment, but do have Uncharted on order.

 
Kotatsu2000 21 February, 2012 @ 12:13 pm   19

Really quite absurd to price digital versions of games higher than physical media versions. Uncharted is £37 on Amazon on LAUNCH DAY. The price will drop soon after and continue until it’s in the bargain bin, at which point the digital price will seem even more farcical.

If you were in any way serious about digital distribution, you’d have taken the giant cut which is normally wasted on distribution, manufacturing, and retail, and sliced it clean off the digital price. That would have made Uncharted somewhere around the £15 mark.

The only platform to have got digital pricing right is iOS, and that’s because it never had to deal with old fashioned discs and cartridges and the parasitic retailers who sell them.

 

Nearly time woooooooooooooooooooooo

 
xenokiller90 21 February, 2012 @ 12:14 pm   21

awesome can,t wait thanks for the heads up

 
INS1GHTFUL 21 February, 2012 @ 12:15 pm   22

Can u give more details about the uncharted and motor storm dlc? What is it exactly we are getting?

Ps! I thought prices on the store would be more reasonable for games. I’ll be buying boxed games all the way (aside from motor storm and stardust).

 

Am I missing something or are we also not receiving a 10% discount on digital games like the Americans??

hey, what does the “Uncharted: Golden Abyss (£0.79/€0.99)” DLC refer to!? thanks

    James Gallagher 21 February, 2012 @ 12:43 pm    

    It’s an in-game map that shows the locations of the hidden treasures to help any Platinum hunters out there.

 

Satisfied with everything apart from the one game I wanted, FIFA. Very disappointed in the price

AeroEvolution 21 February, 2012 @ 12:16 pm   26

What is the DLC for Uncharted: Golden Abyss (£0.79/€0.99) ?

Also @James

will there be any plus Deals coming up, would like to know before i make a sub for a year, maybe the 15 months deal for 12 ;)

 
La_Mangouste 21 February, 2012 @ 12:17 pm   27

Will Motorstorm RC also be available for PS3 tomorrow ?

 
Noisepurge 21 February, 2012 @ 12:17 pm   28

aww yiss! can’t wait!

 

#16, sure, you can download now and store on the PS3 until you get your Vita. I currently have 7 Vita games on the PS3 waiting for my Vita.

 

As much as I’m looking forward to getting my Vita… those prices are much more than I was hoping!

“Don’t forget that if you already own Hustle Kings, Top Darts or Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom DLC on PS3, you can also use it on your PS Vita at no extra charge.”

That’s quite good though.

Any word on when we get our codes for our pre-order discount… and if I’ve selected the Super Stardust one, does that mean the “bundle” version or normal? Or either? ‘Cause I don’t want to be shafted on DLC later, otherwise I’d have picked Escape Plan.

 

I thought the whole point of having the games on the PSN store was that you could sell them cheaper because its just a download. But when I see Uncharted for £40 on there and look at somewhere like Amazon and its £37 I feel like its Sony doing the same old one step forward two steps back all over again.

also, i agree with what Kotatsu2000 said in post 19. there is a clear difference in cost to companies between packaging and distriubuting physical copies of the games, and making them available digitally. this saving should, in part, be passed on to the loyal customers who continue to buy your games. bit disappointed with the prices tbh, Motorstorm about the only game to get it right.

SoySuperBien 21 February, 2012 @ 12:19 pm   33

£44.99? Really?

Jesus.

MaikelSteneker 21 February, 2012 @ 12:19 pm   34

@16: Motorstorm RC is also a PS3 game, so you should be able to download the DLC for that to your PS3 regardless.

As for other Vita content, I assume you can access everything from the PS3 Store. The whole idea of this early Store update is that you can download everything you want in advance, so you only have to copy it to your Vita as soon as you get it.

@#29 DKShadow, games can be downloaded now on the ps3!?

 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to my vita like i can’t explain, but the Digital prices for games is terrible, what happened to the whole, cheaper digitally to offset the cost of the memory cards?!?!?

Nope not at all!

Little to no incentive to buy into the digital ecosystem!!!

 

#35, I had the Vita for review, so I got a bunch of games early. I’m afraid you wont be able to get them officially until midnight tonight :)

So how come in the US they get discounted price if they buy the games from PSN but we are charged RRP? Shame on Sony again for treating EU customers differently

Motorstorm RC (Psn Only) (£4.79/€5.99)

Evolution said that the PS3 version of this title is a standalone edition, will downloading/buying this copy entitle/download the PS3 copy at the same time?

 

what about super stardust delta James. Is it cross platform like motorstorm rc?? Playable on ps3?

 
DeathroW22 21 February, 2012 @ 12:25 pm   41

£44.99 for a portable game in 2012 is a great way for you to ruin this opportunity for success. It simply will not sell at that price.

Sony are in for a big surprise if they believe these prices will help keep this system from going under. I have a Vita on the way and have bought WipEout 2048 in physical form already (£30).

I was encouraged by the statements from various Sony people which were implying they were taking digital downloads more seriously, learning from the mistakes of the PSP and more recently the PSPGo. But little here has changed, other than they have had their first parties create one or two games at a decent price.

So much for cheaper DD games. But only in Europe of course, as usual.

 

@29 & 34, Thanks :)

 

Sorry but those prices are a joke! Digital games should be priced cheaper than retail games, not the same or MORE!! I cant wait to get my Vita but theres no way in hell i will be paying £40+ for games on the store when you can get the physical version for £30-£35. (Those prices are already too steep…)

Please sort the store out, i dont want the Vita going the same way as the GO…

@DKShadow #36 at cool thanks! damn you! i’ve my vita atm an really wanted to play RC! not long to wait i suppose!

i hope that this is just Sony capitalising on the launch day with these prices, as it’ll be physical format for me on most games if this pricing is not reconcidered

What are those DLC Pass unlocks for Motorstorm RC all about?

Anyone know?

 
Blood_God_UK 21 February, 2012 @ 12:33 pm   47

Look on ZAVVI,
VITA games are some of the cheapest I’ve seen.

 

That so many people do not understand why digital releases of retail games cannot be much cheaper is a little saddening. The retailers will NOT stock consoles if they are going to be undercut on games.

That there is any discount at all (and there is on most titles) is a first for digital console games.

Though I have to say, Fifa and F1 at £45 is a joke.

Will be purchasing Escape Plan, Motorstorm RC and Super Stardust though without doubt.

lol @ the prices.. dvd.co.uk, zavvi sell the retail copies at much cheaper price.. everyone should boycott the digital download versions..

 

Also, was that the first confirmation of Plants Vs Zombies and Mutant Blobs Attack for the EU at all? let alone Launch day?

That makes 30 games for launch day if that is the case.

    James Gallagher 21 February, 2012 @ 12:54 pm    

    Yes, but they are ready for launch. I’m working with SOE to try and get a post on PvZ so that you know what you’re getting before you buy.
