‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 21st March 2012

Welcome to this week’s PlayStation Store update.

AssassinsCreedRevelations_Hero_EN_PVWIMG

For PlayStation 3 This week will see Assassin’s Creed Revelations’ release on the store (on Friday). Until Monday the 26th, you’ll be able to get it at a discounted rate, so grab it before it sneaks back to full price.

If you haven’t had your chance to start at the beginning of the series (like me!) then the Assassin’s Creed Double Edition bundle will serve you well. The bundle will give you the first two games, letting you experience the series where it all began.

Also, after a bit of a wait we now have some Resident Evil avatars that y’all can snap up. There is a selection of characters from both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica to choose from.

So, that’s it for today. Short and sweet!

’til next time…

Now that PS2 classics are on the store, I think there is a load of potential that has not yet been tapped into.

Games like Dark Chronicle and Rogue Galaxy would be awesome and would get tonnes of attention.

However, what would be easier on your end, and probably even better on ours, would be to release Chrono Cross as a PS1 US import. It’s already on the NA PSN, and there are so many Europeans who have heard great things but have never been able to play it.

Come on guys, make it happen!

Salaam, btw :)

Rob_Velocity 21 March, 2012 @ 1:07 pm   3

Again I’m disappointed with the lack of Vita stuff. While I understand we’re still very much in the launch window, the lack of content and indeed confirmed games with firm release dates is slightly worrying.

Nordlyset87 21 March, 2012 @ 1:08 pm   4

Hey Jawad, do you know if we will get some ME3 Themes/Avatars in the near future? :)

Falcon1991 21 March, 2012 @ 1:08 pm   5

I like the new addition of the images with some of the items, like the US have. :)

As for me, I’ll give the Rayman 3 and Blades of Time demos a go.

Also fantastic to see more avatars added, especially the Resi ones. Onwards to RE5 and MVC3!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 March, 2012 @ 3:05 pm    

    Glad you like it. James has been working hard tinkering with the layout.

    Hopefully those avatars will arrive in the next few weeks (no guarantee!)

Carnivius_Prime 21 March, 2012 @ 1:09 pm   6

Nothing for me to purchase today. None of the Plus discounts appeal (I tried the Rayman trial from the US store but it didn’t do much for me, and I’ve never liked Assassin’s Creed). No matter. Still enjoying the excellent Sly Cooper Trilogy from last week’s bargain sale. £8.99 for 3 truly excellent platformers all with Platinum trophies to acquire. I’ll take the LBP2 Spring thing.

CoolRichy008UK 21 March, 2012 @ 1:09 pm   7

so rayman 3 is 20% off whats that £5 can someone tell me plz

This is getting ridiculous.
Where’s all the Vita content? It’s a month since launch now.
And will we hear any time soon of the PSOne Classics coming to it, if ever? I’ve got so many Classics bought that i want to transfer to my Vita.

    Jawad Ashraf 21 March, 2012 @ 3:07 pm    

    Are you saying you’re done with the launch stuff already? Vita content will be trickling in. It’s not long forgotten.

I still have Rogue Galaxy and Dark Chronicle – but if they add those then Dark Cloud is a must

Personally I would like to see Persona 3 and Persona 4 as PS2 release on the store also Mr Moskeeto, Kuon, Forbidden Siren as well PLEASE

as for US ps1 imports Xenogears

and while I’m wishing for lots of stuff – move enabled HD update of Okami would be brilliant – already put the other clover game God Hand up – surely Capcom can be persuaded

    Jawad Ashraf 21 March, 2012 @ 3:08 pm    

    Then make Capcom know over at their forums. I’m sure they’d love to hear what people want to see.

CoolRichy008UK 21 March, 2012 @ 1:10 pm   10

ps3 comes 1st VITA LAST

Traction-XL 21 March, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   11

Eany news on a fix for playing plus mimis on vita?

Wraxend 21 March, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   12

What terrible pricing for ACR :P I do wonder who actually buys this stuff sometimes?

Shane_86 21 March, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   13

Does the digital version of Assassin’s creed Revelations include the original Assassin’s Creed like the retail version did?

FrostScythe1 21 March, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   14

YES can’t wait to buy Rayman 3!! and it about god damm time we got resident evil avatars!!!! Thank You Jawad

DBcoopmore 21 March, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   15

Hi Jawad, do you know what’s happening with the Journey Dynamic theme? Should have been up for plus two weeks ago…

    Jawad Ashraf 21 March, 2012 @ 3:09 pm    

    Actually, I’ve just checked our plans and this should be available today…will reconfirm so I’m not losing my mind.

CoolRichy008UK 21 March, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   16

its £6.39 for rayman 3 discount

Could it be possible that you could ask for dark cloud and dark chronicle to ps2 classics?

guitardevil6 21 March, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   18

No Access episode this week Jawad?

I’ll pick up the motorstorm rc cars (just wish they would help me drive better haha) and the RE avatars!

If you can see about the Silent Hill PSP games up on the Vita store, that would be much appreciated! :D

Deak-in 21 March, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   19

Rayman 3 HD for me but no doubt I won’t be able to get it downloaded with the maintenance going on tonight..

Roxas598 21 March, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   20

since the RE4 avatars are going up are buyers of the game gonna be honored the free avatars?

the EU store seems to have a problem when it comes to offering freebies why is that? first the free Beyond good and evil avatars aren’t given then RE4 and now the theme for journey. why is there problems surrounding these? it is false advertising.

(Gonna put this at the end of the comments i make just cause i can!)

Kingdom hearts BBS on the store!! show my vita some KH love!!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 March, 2012 @ 3:17 pm    

    RE4 avatars are a different issue that I can’t go into but others, such as the Journey theme are delayed for their own reasons, but this is out today (noticed this right now, basically).

    As for BbS, SE’s community blog. Make yourself heard. I wouldn’t mind it myself either…except I don’t know if I could handle getting trashed time and time again by Hooded-Guy Boss Fight…can’t remember how many times I had to try that fight on Critical mode but oh was it satisfying to win!

orton131 21 March, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   21

How much is ACR with the plus discount? If its over £20, NO PURCHASE!

Bacon_Crispies 21 March, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   22

Will the RE4 avatars be free for those that brought the game during the first few weeks it was on sale? I seem to remember that was the deal that was offered back then.

MZperX_Hu 21 March, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   23

Onimusha 1-3 should be added to the list of ps2 classics..It would be great.

Could it be possible that you could ask for dark cloud and dark chronicles for the ps2 classics,they are hard to find nowadays.Please? :)

MorbidPrincess 21 March, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   25

Is there any chance of us getting Gitaroo Man as a PS2 classic any time soon?
I’d love to play it again but my ps2 is 300 miles away at the moment :(

Psicojacorral 21 March, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   26

Hi! Can you confirm that Treasures of Montezuma Blitz isn’t a demo, and it’s a FREE game for PS vita, that its trailer said?

    Jawad Ashraf 21 March, 2012 @ 3:18 pm    

    Correct, it IS a free game. Mistakenly labelled as a demo but this has been fixed now.

nothing for me this week maybe a few avatars.Ohh and who’s bright idea was it to have psn maintenance on store and home update day you really pick your days don’t you

randellaUK 21 March, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   28

Treasures of Montezuma Blitz

How comes its a demo I thought this puzzler was launch is there a full game available???are we due we vita games soon Ben 10 racing came out last week couldn’t find the game nowhere had to import it in the end how comes this never came to the store???will we get a drop update like the US does a few days prior to the Wednesday update gives people a chance to know what to spend there money on.

GevallenEngel 21 March, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   29

Not much for me this week, Blades of Time demo perhaps.

Will keep on voting to get the whole Wild Arms series on the store, and also Parasite Eve 1. Really want to start those series, totally missed em back in the day :(

CoolRichy008UK 21 March, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   30

Falcon1991 rayman3 is basicly a game where you punch baddies and get a high score in each level to a 100% i think ul like the game i had it on ps2 its got some good funny monments in it and with a %20 disocunt im deffo buying this and as for assasins creed revs il get it next week when i got £70 then i can get all dlc for it and DBcoopmore the jouney theme is still along way away and has to come to us lol

iJamiee- 21 March, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   31

No sign of the rest of the megaman 10 avatars ??

swatchthis 21 March, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   32

What about the Journey dynamic theme?

Huono_peleis 21 March, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   33

“More later in the month, we’ve not forgotten those additional games that are currently available in SCEA, so watch out for those to be slotted in over the next few weeks, as well as a selection of additional Full Game Trials.”

Not gonna happen then?

I’m not surprised at all.

spacedelete1 21 March, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   34

when are we going to get some good PS2 classics ? the PS2 was one of the best consoles ever but you wouldn’t know judging from the PS2 games on the store in fact if you see the selection available you would think the PS2 was the worst console ever when that isn’t true.

really the PS1 and PS2 classics would be the best things about the PS3.

really what’s taking so long to get some PS2 games and when you do finally put some up its mostly shovelware.

when are we going to get some actual PS2 classics ?

Any News On Them Kingdoms Of Amalur : Reckoning – Avatars .?.

LAClennell 21 March, 2012 @ 1:17 pm   36

do people who bought Resident Evil’s 4 and CVX last you as part of the plus promotion (50% discount and free avatars) get todays avatars for free? we’ve been waiting ages for our free avatar

It really is sad that when it began selling the vita of each stated as sony will take care of the content and features … Near only works sometimes, compatibility of PS1 games is zero, the Web browser is useless to store and not a hint or psv game …. sadly

compiler :-)

Triforce-1976 21 March, 2012 @ 1:17 pm   38

Nice update and 1 little question.
Any news about Free realms for holland, i so want to play the game.

they are doing manintnence Deak-in from 3pm till 10pm and all services will be avalible but only a few will have unstable connections so you should be fine :)

Martingutten 21 March, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   41

A bit meeh this week!
Btw, Toy Story 3 game on norwegian PSN is swedish! I really don’t want to hear a lot of swedish in my game. There is no way to change language. English would be the best (I HATE dubing), but norwegian would at least be 123 times better than swedish!

Bacon_Crispies 21 March, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   42

In addition to previous comment.

1. Will some of the RE4 avatars be free as we are still waiting for them from this http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2011/09/16/resident-evil-4-is-coming-to-psn-plus-subscribers-get-50-off/

2. Gravity Rush demo any time soon?

3. Are we going to get the Journey Dynamic theme?

Thank you very much ;-)

Bealinator 21 March, 2012 @ 1:23 pm   50

Hello,

Here’s an ‘avatar request’!

The section looks awfully lonely without God of war – is there a chance of getting some of these? Be sure to get the big Kratos and the gods of Olympus!

And because of the fact that Doctor who: the Eternity Clock will be materialising next month, would it be possible to press for some DW-based avatars? I’d love them very much, a dynamic theme (pushing it?) would also be fantastic.
