‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 7th March 2012

It is time!

Trine 2

Trine 2 is finally here. After a long wait I’m happy to say the game many of you have been waiting for is finally coming to the PlayStation Store today. If you hadn’t seen Ross’ previous Plus post then you won’t know the current offer we’re going with as an apology for the delay. I quote the good man himself:

Trine 2 is coming this Wednesday with a 30% launch discount for the first two weeks by way of apology for the delay in SCEE. Even better though, if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, it comes with a cool 100% discount, making Trine 2 our PlayStation Plus Game of the Month.

So that’s the big deal for today.

We also have Mass Effect 3 coming to the store this Friday, 9th March to coincide with the retail release. 

Tee-off with the most comprehensive swing mechanic revamp in over a decade and connect with your personal swing via Playstation Move in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13! The demo also introduces several more ground-breaking features such as Online Country Clubs, Coins, Pin Collections, Tiger Legacy Challenge mode and more. Also, return to Augusta National Golf Club to compete against the world’s best players at the Masters Tournament. Download now and earn XP that transfers to the full game to get one step closer to becoming Masters Champion

Don’t forget to also check out this week’s special offers brought to you by Andy the folks at THQ. Look out for titles such as Red Faction: Battlegrounds and Saints Row 2.

For the Vita be sure to check out the upcoming post on that.

For now, stay safe.

WolfiePL 7 March, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   2

no Street Fighter x Tekken avatars? :(

 
n1keman_SH 7 March, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   3

Any news on the Monster Hunter Avatars the US got last week?

Many thanks.

 

This is great, but where’s more Vita content? i was hoping for some more demos to try, especially Ninja Gaiden by any chance.
Any word on PSOne Classics to Vita as well? Or should i wait for Friday…

 
Roxas598 7 March, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   5

Where’s journey? was hoping to see the price for it

Hoping it’s 9.99 as i have exactly £10 in my account lol

Jawad is there any sort of date for I am alive?

    Jawad Ashraf 7 March, 2012 @ 3:31 pm    

    Journey will be for Plus only. I haven’t mentioned it because Ross had mentioned it in his own special post.

 
Jimster-71 7 March, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   6

No mention of Journey – thought that was available for PS Plus subs today?

 
Hell-Raiser-85 7 March, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   7

Whats the size of Journey?

 
UltraSilver64 7 March, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   8

Will other games by Telltale Games be available on the PlayStation Store?

Will the following be made available:

The Bone Series (Out of Boneville & The Great Cow Race)
Sam & Max Save the World (i.e. Season 1)
Hector: Badge of Carnage (especially this one!)
Law & Order: Legacies

If you could let me know as soon as you can, it would be greatly appreciated.

 
SlickShoes 7 March, 2012 @ 1:52 pm   9

Your homefront pricing is the wrong way round!

Also isn’t Journey available today for PS+?

    Jawad Ashraf 7 March, 2012 @ 3:32 pm    

    Oops! Well spotted.

    Journey is available for Plus users this week, yes.

 

SSX Avatars???

vickaz91 7 March, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   13

So are you guys giving up with eu spyro cause it’s getting daft lol good update

 
almighty-slayer 7 March, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   14

Just Journey and free PS+ stuff for me this week then :)

GenocideHeart 7 March, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   15

Yay, Trine 2. And free too.

The rest has some interesting DLC as well.

Falcon1991 7 March, 2012 @ 1:55 pm   16

Very sad that there aren’t the Street Fighter X Tekken avatars there, but then knowing what it is like getting Capcom avatars here in Europe then they’ll probably take an age. :(

Anyway, just Access TV for me. Would get the complete UMVC3 costume pack but £15.99 is too much.

Lt_Fed_Brusque 7 March, 2012 @ 1:55 pm   17

Good lordy! Doing this new layout must be a pain in the neck for you :P But thanks for taking the trouble. It lays everything out quite neatly :)

    James Gallagher 7 March, 2012 @ 2:15 pm    

    I’m still tweaking it to try and get the best balance between how it displays on a PC browsers and the PlayStation Mobile App, but glad you approve of the steps so far.

Amy_Belgium 7 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   18

well i really hope the uncharted 3 avatars are there this time. also will we get the street fighter x tekken ones?

 
Tiago425 7 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   19

awesome weekend , i was wondering if there’s a possibility of kingdom hearts in the PSN

 
pb-live 7 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   20

Disappointed by having to wait for Unit 13 when the rest of Europe get it today.

 

whats happening with the call of duty elite theme ?

 
Gilgamesh29 7 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   22

Could we please have the size details for all Vita content in the future as space is a premium on the memory cards.

 
vicheous 7 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   23

Got my copy of ME3 yesterday why are you so slow ;-) Anyways nice update…

spacedelete1 7 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   24

for the love of god when will we finally get some decent PS2 games ? Sony do you not want my money ?

get Vice City and San Andreas on the PS store ASAP!!!!!

 
Mikeytron 7 March, 2012 @ 1:57 pm   25

Where is I am Alive? It was released on the US store today.

 
Lill-Frick 7 March, 2012 @ 1:57 pm   26

When will we be able to get Mortal Kombat through PSN ?

TwinBlade04 7 March, 2012 @ 1:57 pm   27

Some PSone/PS2 classics suggestions :):

Dragon Valor (PSone)
Nightshade (PS2)
Rogue Galaxy (PS2)
Dirge Of Cerebrus: FF7 (PS2)
Legaia 2 (PS2)
Star Ocean 3 (PS2)

 
Asmerith 7 March, 2012 @ 1:57 pm   28

De Blob 2 for AUD$12.99 is that a typo? If it’s correct then that’s a freaking bargain!

 
Otaku_BAKA 7 March, 2012 @ 1:57 pm   29

Still interested to know what is happening with Alundra (PSOne Classics)? It was submitted to you ages ago and has yet to make an appearance on the store.

Trine 2 at last, hallelujah!!

Apology accepted guys, time to get Plus again.

 
Bengi-Hustla 7 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   31

So Journey isn’t coming out today? US Plus subscribers get early access.

 
vicheous 7 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   32

Price for Homefront is wrong in £ :D

 

“For the Vita be sure to check out the upcoming post on that.”

When? today?

    Jawad Ashraf 7 March, 2012 @ 3:47 pm    

    Due to the small update for Vita we’ve bundled it into this post, so that statement is a little out of date now.

 
Asmerith 7 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   34

#25 – I Am Alive wasn’t released on the US store, it’s only on Xbox for now. No release date for PSN yet

 
Hannay27 7 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   35

That new layout is a mess, the old layout was much easier to scroll through especially on mobile devices.

Unit 13 on Friday…what’s the deal with that? The blog post yesterday stated it would be on the store today?

    Jawad Ashraf 7 March, 2012 @ 3:48 pm    

    For mainland Europe it’s out today. For UK and Ireland it’ll be out on Friday (in line with the retail release).

 
Connor_mufc_1985 7 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   36

Jawad the Uncharted 3 avatars are supposed to be free to fortune hunter club members, why doesn’t it say so in your store update, after last week I dont want to be mad again lol

 
Silent_Gig 7 March, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   37

Brilliant store update, going to try Shinobi.

FrozenbyteGames 7 March, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   38

Trine 2 finally released. :) I hope that the game redeems itself from the delay trouble, and I hope you guys enjoy it!

- Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine 2

 
tutchmedia 7 March, 2012 @ 2:01 pm   39

@20 – My thoughts exactly. It’s stupid how we are in the exact same PAL territory. Have the exact same game files yet we have to wait 2 extra days to play it.

I know it’s only 2 days but it’s the whole point of knowing it’s ready in other places. Surely it can release for download today and then retail on friday? 2 extra days to pick up sales?

 
laticspieman 7 March, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   40

Any chance of the star wars battlefront ps2 games appearing as either a hd collection or as ps2 classics on the store? They would be extremly popular!

spacedelete1 7 March, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   41

Sony right now you are taking the bloody mick. either release good PS2 cclassics or release a software emulator so we can play OUR discs we PAYED you back in the PS2 days.

by releasing PS2 shovelware as “PS2 classics” you are giving people who are new to Playstation a bad first impression and will think the PS2 was the worst console ever because all you seem to release is random japanese games and shovelware no one has ever heard of.

 
Atinetro 7 March, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   42

Homefront – Was £8.79, now £27.99…I want the original price Jawad! Great update, you’ve really been treating us recently!

 
BrianDamage7 7 March, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   43

Nice update, unfortunately the table displays very badly with some info unreadable is viewing on the Playstation App!

    James Gallagher 7 March, 2012 @ 2:17 pm    

    I’m still tweaking the table to try and get the perfect balance between how it displays on a PC browser and how the app. takes the feed and renders it. I should have it nailed by next week’s update.

 

Hey jawad,

I second post #1 – I’ve been asking for a sale on the PSP Syphon Filter games for over a year now! Please make it happen and/or give us an indication of it’s likelihood.

Cheers,

Si_85

    Jawad Ashraf 7 March, 2012 @ 3:52 pm    

    I’ll let Andy know as he deals with this area. I’ll pass on your suggestions.

 
Atinetro 7 March, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   45

@40 Shinobi was, and still is, a fantastic game!

 
Pug-zilla 7 March, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   46

Hey so when you say for Vita check out the upcoming post, is that upcoming as in today or upcoming as in this week sometime?

 

Thank you for Trine 2, it’s a great choice for PS+!

Does this: “Vidzone Trailer Ex,BU,CR,CZ,GR,HU,IN,IS,KU,PL,QA,RU,SA,SL,ZA,TK,UK,UA” mean these countries are going to get VidZone now?

 
ShadowDoGGG 7 March, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   48

I hope you’re all excited for the release of ThatGameCompany’s Journey on March 14th in SCEE – the game has been receiving some amazing reviews and truly is a masterpiece. But why wait to find out? This Wednesday, our PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get their hands on Journey one whole week before everyone else and grab yourselves a free Plus-Exclusive Dynamic Theme.

So…. where is journey?

 

Homefront Now £27.99 was £8.79 ?!?!?!

 

Jawad is there a chance of Jill and Shuma for mvc3 being discounted any time soon?
