‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 28th March 2012

Welcome, welcome! What a bright, sunny week it’s been in the UK. I hope some of you have been making the most of it.

Another somewhat quiet week (now, now, this is an excuse to catch some sun) but I’m sure there’s some new additions to hold the interest of a few of you. The big retail release this week also seeing a release on the Store (on Friday) goes to EA with their release of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2013.

A few additions to the Neo Geo range have been added, including The King of Fighters ’96, which I know from previous weeks has been asked about quite often.

Oh, I almost missed Arc the Lad II. Given the hype surrounding the first title I’m only certain a lot of gamers were itching for the next game. Well, here it is!

Battlefield 3 DLC has dropped. Yesterday, in fact! The new DLC allows those with a little less time to unlock some of the bonuses the easy way.

I should also mention Modern Warfare 3 Elite Drop 3 will happen tomorrow so keep an eye out for that if you are an Elite member.

Other notable DLC that you may care for is an extra episode for that there crazy game Asura’s Wrath. This is an extra episode with a more traditional animé look and the same level of madness.

Don’t forget to check out the Spring Sale to see what kind of savings are to be had, and also, Ross will have a PlayStation Plus post up shortly, too.

And that’s it for this week.

Until we meet again…

Hi Jawad

Please answer both questions

Any updates on Crash Bash? How far are we along with it?

We were supposed to get it late last year according to Ross so what’s the hold up?

Also when is Ross publishing the PSplus update on the blog, can you give me an approximate time and day please?

Thanks

    James Gallagher 28 March, 2012 @ 1:37 pm    

    For those asking for the PS Plus content list for next week, we’ve been working on it all day but are not quite ready to hit this afternoon. Look out for it around tomorrow lunchtime.

Playtoy_17 28 March, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   2

Hi jawad

I wanted to know if there are any updates on Wallace and Gromit’s grand adventures from telltale games?

Also when are we getting Demand 5 player, we have got all the other catch up players why haven’t we got this one.

 

Any chance of Dino Crisis 2 on PSN? And do Sony ever plan to raise the PS+ cloud save cap? Running out of space to back up on saves on :(

 
UltraSilver64 28 March, 2012 @ 1:34 pm   4

Hi Jawad,

I always look forward to great stuff on the PS Store, especially for PS Plus subscribers.

I have a query though: Will other games by Telltale Games be made available on the PlayStation Store in the future?

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.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:32 pm    

    Not heard about any of those coming over so for now, that’ll be a no unfortunately.

 
randellaUK 28 March, 2012 @ 1:34 pm   5

Any update on psn+ this month or any idea when the next wave of vita games are due as nothing on the release lists any time soon?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:34 pm    

    PS Plus update is incoming – Ross will have a post up on this separately.

    As for Vita, it has been quiet and will be for a little more. Don’t worry, there’s definitely more content coming but for the mean time it’ll be in small doses.

 
windowsmsnlipi 28 March, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   6

great update! is there any chance we will ever see hyperdimension neptunia avatars ?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:35 pm    

    NIS have submitted avatars previously but I’m not aware on if they are for Neptunia. You may see some but as you know, avatars are released a lot slower than other content. We only just saw a Disgaea avatar creep out last week so hopefully loads more will come soon.

 
craven84 28 March, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   7

You may or may not know this, but i’ll ask anyway.

Are there any plans to implement PS1 game support for the Vita? Also for plus members (like myself) are there plans to sort out the fact that you can’t use any mini game downloaded from PS plus.

Finally on the subject of PS Plus are there any plans to have any discounts/offers for people with a Playstation vita?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:37 pm    

    I can’t really comment on any of them other than to say we are aware of those requests, issues and desires.

 

This is a message for you who want FFVII: Crisis Core and games like Chrono Cross ps1-import on the store.
Do like me, everytime there is a Final Fantasy related post on the european SquareEnix blog, post a comment that you want this to happen.

I have done this several times but I’ve gotten no answer, but I think if we stick together we can make it happen ;)

So google “square enix members eu”, make an account, and bring awesome games like Chrono Cross to the store!

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:38 pm    

    And this is how you make your voice heard. But don’t go too crazy!

 
zerolaff 28 March, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   9

You never mention Access in Videos anymore for some reason.

Is there any news you can share on Tekken 3?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:41 pm    

    I have been made aware of it recently as I put this together so Access and the other odd bits may suddenly appear as an update in the post later on.

    Tekken 3 is at the moment looking impossible. If you recall the character Gon. He rightfully belongs to another company and not namco, so this would made the game difficult to re-release.

 
bravo9zero 28 March, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   10

Why didn’t we get the Resistance: Burning Skies AR app for PS Vita?!
The US got it last night…

Was looking forward to it as well.

 
Soliduss_hun 28 March, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   11

And what about Playstation Plus?

We will get the same content like the Usa?

 
RemyX-1988 28 March, 2012 @ 1:38 pm   12

Finally the NEO GEO games that I was waiting for! Awesome!
A pretty neat update, if you ask me. Lots of things for me to aquire. :)

 
MitchZombie 28 March, 2012 @ 1:38 pm   13

Awesome FFXIII-2 DLC buying!
Could we get some more RE:ORC avatars like Leon, Jill etc PLZ!

 
guitardevil6 28 March, 2012 @ 1:38 pm   14

Good update, but will only get some motorstorm cars and access episode.

Hoping Silent Hill PS1 game is in PS Plus update..

Jawad, if you could talk to Konami about releasing Silent Hill PSP games for Vita, that would be great thanks!

 

supremacy mma for vita and resistance ar viewer ?????? u.s got them

Branny77 28 March, 2012 @ 1:40 pm   16

Hi Jawad

Any chance of the following classics appearing any time soon?

Overboard (PS1) – man I loved that game.

Def Jam: Fight for New York (PS2) – dito.

Thank you

 

regret buying my vita so far

 
Agamer2006 28 March, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   18

Gotta say, loving the new, ayout, well presented and spaced out, keep it up.

Anyway I heard from PS access that new episodes of Playstation Access will be on the vita store starting today, is that still the case?

 

Any news on Playstation Plus Mid-month treats?

 
Uziel909 28 March, 2012 @ 1:43 pm   20

Sweet update, loving the Neo Geo stuff. Can’t wait to play Metal Slug 2 again.

Thankyou

 
INS1GHTFUL 28 March, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   21

hi
can you tell us what vita content we can expect over the next few weeks?
And yes, ive finished the launch content that interested me.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:52 pm    

    I’ve only seen a brief schedule but it’s fairly quiet with a smattering of content. I’ll try and get a more solid list of upcoming stuff to share if I can but this is usually difficult!

 
rospondek 28 March, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   22

Still no Sumioni?! And where is the AR Resistance?

 
bravo9zero 28 March, 2012 @ 1:45 pm   23

Shocking the amount of new content/firmwares that have been released for PS Vita since its release!

Sony have let the hype die down for PS Vita already!
Throw us a bone Sony..

 
FBZ1501 28 March, 2012 @ 1:46 pm   24

Why is the MotorStorm RC dlc Pro AM pack full price for Plus members?
2 weeks ago when it launched, it was half price for Plus and on the description it stated it would be at that price until 04/04/12?

 
Carnivius_Prime 28 March, 2012 @ 1:46 pm   25

Shock Troopers is excellent in my opinion the best 2 player shooting game on Neo Geo (was never a big fan of the clumsy Metal Slug games) but I already bought it on the US store back in September so nothing for me today. I’m halfway through Sly 2 though so I’ve got plenty to do :)

flashfumoLIVE 28 March, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   26

This update is kinda weak. There’s not much I want. :/
Are there any news about more NIS avatars? Or was that one Disgaea avatar last week just a cruel, cruel error?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:53 pm    

    Avatars have a slower release but yes, there will be more. When, though is a question I don’t have an answer to.

claTorino 28 March, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   27

still no psvita content? psvita is already an abandoned platform? where’s sumioni? lord of apocalypse? ragnarok odissey?

 

My bad!
I didn’t read properly.

Plus post is coming up.
Sorry for troubling you.

shaikhrabi 28 March, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   29

Salam Jawad ! :)

 
LAClennell 28 March, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   30

Oh look, Cheeky4Life is back, at the same usual spot, and with with the same usual generic question

and as usual, the blog staff always answer his question with the same response and ignore everyone else’s more pressing questions :L

 

Good update!

Looking fw to the Plus update; I hope we get the stuff the US got!

cheeky4life 28 March, 2012 @ 1:53 pm   32

I know the ps plus update is gonna go live by 4 but what time is ross publishing it on this blog?

 
chrisandsheva 28 March, 2012 @ 1:53 pm   33

Nothing (again) for me, not complaining mind as am about ready to concentrate on insane run in ME3.. i have to say though that, for me, those neo-geo games… i’d sooner listen to someone scratching a blackboard… But obviously theres ppl who like them, looking forward to the ps-plus blog later on, to tell us whats in sore next week… ok, have a good afternoon everone.

 
Bumblebee 28 March, 2012 @ 1:53 pm   34

WRECKED!

You REALLY need to shout more about Wrecked! I have been waiting AGES for this game! And without fanfare, THERE IT IS!

I love Mashed and have been waiting for soooooooooooo long for this… I even thought it was cancelled!

Poor update I first thought but all we need is Wrecked!

I hope now I have hyped it, it will be good… but if it is anything like Mashed (and it looks to be) then it will be awesome!

Also, while I’m here: where, oh where, is the Vita content? Starting to feel like there will never be new games for it… at least use that stick you have to beat the people who will be able to enable PS3 games on remote play… and PS1 games! My PSP could do it so Vita should be more than capable!

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:57 pm    

    As mentioned all the way above in other responses, Vita content is a slow roll-out but I will try and get an upcoming list of sorts to share IF I can (do not hold your breath!)

 
MissMachine 28 March, 2012 @ 1:53 pm   35

Another unremarkable update for us europeans :( Oh well time to break out the pimms & a good book and catch some sun lol. Thanks guys for helping me work on my tan lol xD

 

Just a report about the Infamous 2 price… (59.99 €)
Now it is a platinum game, so 60€ is a wrong price.

 
s-p3ci4L-K 28 March, 2012 @ 1:55 pm   37

how on earth do you consider bf3 unlocks, as dlc?
they do not add anything, or do add anything through Downloadable Content, dlc for short. They are unlocks! you pay to unlock content, not download! its already there! yes?

spacedelete1 28 March, 2012 @ 1:55 pm   38

any news on some actual good PS2 classics ? sorry but the selection in the PS store is pathetic.

games like Barbie horse adventure and shovelware. is this what you want the PS2 to be remembered for ?

 
BrianDamage7 28 March, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   39

nothing for me this week :( but good update none the less! Just a quick question, if I subscribe to PS+ and buy discounted titles, are they available after my subscription runs out? I know that free games are only playable with a valid subscription but was wondering about offers, thanks in advance!

Huono_peleis 28 March, 2012 @ 1:57 pm   40

@INS1GHTFUL

New Vita games in April:

- Disgaea 3

..and that’s it. Enjoy your Vita!

Playtoy_17 28 March, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   41

Please shut up LAClennell and stop your moaning, anyway I like Crash Bash.

 
Bealinator 28 March, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   42

Jawad,

Any chance you could get the BBC to do some Doctor Who avatars for the release of The Eternity Clock next month? Would love a few to use for display!

Do you have a date for that game? I realise it has been delayed till next month (hence the no-show today), but no firm date was provided.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:58 pm    

    Nothing to share at the moment. I expect the publisher will make a date soon.

 
toddhunter 28 March, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   43

Thanks for the update.

Are there any plans to revise pricing for the Australian region? I refer to examples such as Plus which it is marked up heavily (to give discounts on heavily marked up games), and the example today of Tiger Woods being $109 when even at the biggest pricing retailer EB Games it is currently $98 for the masters collectors edition.

My PSN plus subscription is up at the start of April, and it wouldn’t be right if I keep complaining but yet do nothing about it. If there are no plans and that is just the way it is then fine, I’ll move on. But if you want to keep a customer can you please provide some assurance?

 
irish-sid 28 March, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   44

OMG WRECKED!!! Been waiting for this for aaages! €5? I was ready to pay up to 10 – 15.

Thanks!

 
Nistelroy78 28 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   45

i have been told that Wheels of Destruction have been moved for 4th of april why is it on here then ?

I qoute my mail from 3 days ago.

The gasoline fueled battles of Wheels of Destruction will be delayed until April 4th 2012. For all players who cannot wait to get into the fierce driving action, we have compiled all trailers available to this date for your viewing pleasure.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 2:59 pm    

    Sadly this was a slight oversight and I apologise for this. The game will be out on 4 April.

 
Bealinator 28 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   46

Cheeky!

Hello again – are you seriously going to ask Ross (on a Plus blog page) about Crash Bash? He isn’t responsible for the store anymore (largely because he provided an answer to a single epic question each week, without fail!), so why ask him?

 
LAClennell 28 March, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   47

@Bealinator:

I second this!

cheeky4life 28 March, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   48

LAClennell

They have not answered my question about Crash Bash so stop complaining, I doubt they ever will, they dont answer anybody.

BigPaja 28 March, 2012 @ 2:01 pm   49

Hello Jawad! I’m back for another round.

Part 1:

1. You May Like
If a new sidebar that would feature actual related content cannot be implemented as a quick fix, I’ll have to hope it finds its way into the next few firmware updates or something.

2. Sorting *NEW*
I’m sure this has been already mentioned a lot in regards to the Downloads List. A sorting feature would be very much appreciated. It could be mapped to the triangle button. In normal sections of the Store, content is already sorted either alphabetically (A-Z) or chronologically (newest to oldest). Pressing triangle would give the choice of A-Z, Z-A, New-Old, Old-New and Original. In the Downloads List, content is sorted only in the New-Old fashion. People have been demanding to have the ability to sort content according to its kind: Full Games & Unlocks, Demos & Trials, Add-On Packs, Themes & Wallpapers & Avatars, and Videos & Music. This could be mapped to triangle which could also offer the other forms of sorting. Additionally, the square button could be used to switch between content for PS3, PSP, Vita, and all. Or it could all be mapped to triangle. I’m pretty sure this would require a firmware update, right?

 
Artemisthemp 28 March, 2012 @ 2:01 pm   50

How come Skandinavien and Poland don’t get NISA content anymore?
I really want to know that, because it kinda make me angry, that I can’t buy NISA avatar (the one that is out), because I live in Denmark.
While my PSN friends from Germany can.

BigPaja 28 March, 2012 @ 2:01 pm   51

Part 2:

3. The Issue of PS1/PS2 Classics in General
I’ll be looking forward to what You have in mind for this.

4. Price Discrimination within the PAL Region *NEW*
It’s something I hate seeing. I’m not talking about how USA gets decidedly lower prices on everything across the board; that’s ancient news. I’m relating this to my position as a PAL region Czech customer who pays in CZK. I’ll use Journey as an example (bought it, adored it). It costs 350 CZK. If I was from a country that is part of the Eurozone, I’d pay 12,99 EUR, which would be about 320 CZK – over 1 EUR cheaper. If I was from the Great Britain, I’d pay 9,99 GBP, which would be 295 CZK – over 2 EUR cheaper. But I can still count my blessings that I’m not an Australian who has to pay 19,95 AUD – 391 CZK, almost 2 EUR more expensive. I know this is out of Your hands, Jawad, but I simply have to express my displeasure over this unfair treatment of anyone who doesn’t pay with British Pounds. It makes no sense at all in the realms of digital distribution. And don’t try arguing with “pricing-to-market”. If that were really the cause, then games in the Czech Republic would have to be cheaper than in Britain or Eurozone, which they aren’t at all.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:12 pm    

    The new questions I actually can’t discuss.

    Classics range is a work in progress.

 

Hey James!! Last week The Treasures Of Montezuma was released for FREE on psvita. But I can’t find it on neither the ps3 or psvita store. Same goes with the other Scandinavian countries. if it’s not going to get released over here do you no when they will release it?

 
vickaz91 28 March, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   53

Hi jawad please please please answer when can we expect to see spyro on the eu store this is a high demand ps1 title witch tbh should have been done a long time ago and i know its not your fault but please ask them to sort it as i think by know everybody knows that spyro would sell really well thanks =] please answer

 
LAClennell 28 March, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   54

@cheeky4life:

THEN STOP ASKING! its not hard. i sent you a PSN message ages ago to a crash bash on ebay in disc form for £7, you should have taken it :S

 

Hey James!! Last week The Treasures Of Montezuma was released for FREE on psvita. But I can’t find it on neither the ps3 or psvita store. Same goes with the other Scandinavian countries. if it’s not going to get released over here do you no when they will release it?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:21 pm    

    With great apologies this was accidentally not mentioned previously however, the game is currently not available in AU, DK, FI, NZ, NO, SE.

BigPaja 28 March, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   56

Part 3:

5. More Bundles *NEW*
I’d like to see more value bundles on the Store. Many more. For example, Flower could be bundled with its soundtrack and dynamic theme at a price of, say, the game and the soundtrack, as if the theme were a bonus. Or we could have a thatgamecompany bundle of flOw, Flower and Journey in the future. There is so much potential. Now, I know what You’re going to say: “It’s up to the publishers.” Yeah? Well, Sony is the publisher of most of the content that gets put on the Store and I’m positive they also have a big say in the matter of what gets released how when it comes to content from other publishers. Don’t try to tell me that Sony is unwilling to contact other publishers and tell them that they could offer more nice deals. There could even be a separate section dedicated to bundles. Do that at least.

6. Critical Mass *NEW*
Now that PS2 games are nearing the critical mass of 50+ items (there are 49 now), I think it’s time they got compartmentalised in the eight A-Z groups like PS1 games. Each alphabetic category would have at least three games in it now.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:14 pm    

    Can’t really add more to this either though for bundles this may change over time but no plans right now.

 
chalky83 28 March, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   57

People asking about TellTale games coming to PSN every week, surely you would be better off asking TellTale themselves about getting these games on PSN. Try their forums http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/

As people have been saying it would be cool to get Tekken 3. Not sure if thats possible though, wasn’t Gon (the orange dino) a character from a manga? There might be an issue with Gon’s rights preventing the games release or something.

Also, I’ve been waiting for the Dynasty Warriors cards and Katamari Pacman stage, so this is good news for me. Just gotta wait for it to go live now…

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:15 pm    

    Yes, Gon is the issue. I feel somewhat bad for blaming the lil’ dino.

 
Tiago425 28 March, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   59

no special offer or ps plus update ?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:15 pm    

    Plus update will come separately and Special Offers are all in the Spring Savings.

Hi, I don’t post very often here but I was wondering why Australia never got the free Vita game last week (Treasures of Montezuma Blitz) even though your blog update post claimed it was for all territories? It even shows up in Vita Add On Content in the store but not in Games. Are Sony aware of this? Thanks – Fred.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:22 pm    

    Unfortunately because of the layout change a few things have mistakenly not been included and sadly this game is not available in AU. I’m not sure why it would show up in Add-On Content but I suspect it was a visibilty error.

    Once again, apologies for this.

Hustle_X 28 March, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   61

Sorry to spam this most weeks but SPYRO PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it requires customer demand to be released than it will receive it!

SPYRO! SPYRO! SPYRO!

AaronSOLDIER 28 March, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   62

Meh, needs more PS1/PS2 games

 
TalllPaul 28 March, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   63

Wasn’t Wheels of Destruction delayed until next week?

 
ilCellone 28 March, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   64

Wrecked price is wrong: 4.99€ is the price of game DLC (Highway to Hell); game price is 11.99€

10th Anniversary today of Kingdom Hearts, was hoping to see something but looks like i am left dissapointed like every other KH fan =(

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:25 pm    

    Unless you were in Japan and then you got a pretty fancy looking light show!

    Usually the year itself is a celebration and not the day (speaking for games heh), so who’s to say they don’t have something else planned, eh?

 

Wrecked is £3.99? Really?! Typo?

 
nicolajNN 28 March, 2012 @ 2:17 pm   67

What about the free-to-play game for Vita that we were supposed to get last week? Still can’t find it

 
Skookie30 28 March, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   68

lol The best quote of the Week goes to………..

MissMachine for stateing the obvious. ;)

but i must have sunstroke because I’m so glad about this good update getting COD-drop 3 tomorrow, arc the lad-2 and the comic duo FF13-2 DLC & that’s all because I’m skint.

@jawad can you ask Ghostlight when digital devil saga 1/2 be out i know they say end of month or april also tell them we like persona-3FES version & persona 4 thanks.

ps I’m skint for now till tomorrow but i’m getting silent hill HD classic & DMC HD classic the week after. :)

I bought the ps1 game from ebay and it DIDNT work so whichever idiot recomended this needs a kick.

 

finally file size for downloads,i hope it’s not for only this week

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:26 pm    

    It’s for whenever these are available…which isn’t always, strangely enough!

Playtoy_17 28 March, 2012 @ 2:24 pm   71

Bealinator

Your one to talk about cheeky, you ask about tombi all the time, in fact you ask about tombi every week, at least cheeky, as annoying as he is, asks once every so often.

Talk about double standards

cheeky4life 28 March, 2012 @ 2:27 pm   72

So what if i want to ask ross about Crash Bash he may know or say something other than “sadly no updates”

 
dirtyCAT79 28 March, 2012 @ 2:27 pm   73

Well my Vita is starting to look a little worried that he is going to end up at the bottom of the draw next to my GO.

I know you only read the stuff that is from fanboys giving you high fives but I also know I do not stand alone im my fears and frustrations with you guys.

I justified buying a vita by promising myself that I would stop buying games from the AppStore for my iPhone. One month after Vita launch I have already broken that promise. The AppStore gets updates daily. Blog sites are so excited about its games that there are plenty of great news resources and great releases to get excited about and look forward to. Developers are flooding the store with some great content and re-defining handheld gaming.

I don’t even have a clear picture of what is coming soon to my Vita. Just some vague ideas with sketchy release dates that I don’t want to get excited about because I know that you will drop the ball when it comes to same day international releases yet again.

Please stop shooting yourself in the foot Sony. You make very good hardware. Time to get headhunting and bring someone on board who will help you make some serious money.

    Jawad Ashraf 28 March, 2012 @ 3:37 pm    

    I’m not really a high-five kinda guy…

    Yes, Vita content has been quiet and will continue like this next week but there will be more content over time, naturally. It’s new hardware, publishers have their own time frames for releasing games and we too have our own. It’ll never be a case of releasing things in large chunks because then there’s nothing else to release.

    As for same day international release – this is an aim and something not all publishers can commit to. You must consider the game, how large it is, the amount that needs to be localised, the amount that may need changing to be even considered for release in certain regions, the market conditions, competition etc etc. The fact most big games only now have a wait of up to 3 months (and even that is rare) is quite impressive compared to last generation where it was a case of waiting 6-12 months – this being for games guaranteed to do sell well. So the wait between regions now is far more bearable in my eyes.

    So, Vita content is coming but currently in small pieces.

odyhunter 28 March, 2012 @ 2:28 pm   74

Hi, Jawad

On Ace Combat official fan site they said there will be a PSN special offer for ACAH DLCs on 28th Mar https://www.facebook.com/AceCombat

But I didn’t see this in your update, will we get it? Thanks!

 
BiOsTaRoN 28 March, 2012 @ 2:29 pm   75

Any chance some of these games, are coming to the PSN store

Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel
Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland
Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland
Bioshock

@Playtoy_17

at least Beal isn’t near as worse as Cheeky

Cheeky types up his post in notebook, then copies it, then STALKS the blog on wednesdays just to make sure that his typed up in notebook post is always first :L

 

where is ps+ content?

 

Nice to see we’re finally getting some Touch my Katamari dlc … however, do you have any idea what happened to the first 2 that should have been out weeks ago (Snowman and Shopping)?

 

Is there a chance we’ll get Quantic Dream’s “Kara” – Video as download to the store?

 
CasperH01 28 March, 2012 @ 2:39 pm   80

FYI, the store categories on the Dutch store have been screwed up since about friday.
Just thought you should know :-)

Falcon1991 28 March, 2012 @ 2:40 pm   81

So much for Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock this month.

 
wardragon989 28 March, 2012 @ 2:40 pm   82

Hey guys, do you know when we are going to get Asura’s Wrath PSN avatars?

cheeky4life 28 March, 2012 @ 2:41 pm   83

LAClennell

So I stalk the blog every wednesday right? only the last time I commented was a while a go early January I think, so get your facts right before you post.

I bought Crash Bash from eBay and it didn’t work, it had problems with the cut scenes and the audio, so thanks again for this recommendation, you owe me £7.

 
aimeraya 28 March, 2012 @ 2:42 pm   84

Holy crap~ Plenty of NEOGEO games…who cares…

 
Chocobo115 28 March, 2012 @ 2:51 pm   85

I think I have vaited over 5 months for the swedish support to answear my mail. And due me beeing hearing impaired, does it make it really hard for me to make phone calls. I just wonder what should I do next to get my PAYDAY code from The Play promotion?
Sorry for having to bring it here :/

Strangeheaven 28 March, 2012 @ 2:52 pm   86

Another buring week of content.
Any chance that the ps store can have the whole catalogue of 150 NEO GEO titles, and priced at 99p each because there very old now and way over priced at £7.00 each.

Plus I would love to watch the KARA tech demo video on my hd tv,any chance that it may pop on playstation store one day.

Cheers

 
spoon_1992 28 March, 2012 @ 2:53 pm   87

Hey Jawad!

Just wondering, now that the resident evil avatars are out, will the people who bought resident evil 4 get them for free like we were told back when it was released? Thanks! :)

robwill80 28 March, 2012 @ 2:54 pm   88

Good update. Thanks for adding those Neo Geo games.

 
Jordyce 28 March, 2012 @ 2:55 pm   89

Any word on the Atlus sale / price-drop? Persona 3 Portable had the price cut in half, while we’re still looking at full price.

 
Jordyce 28 March, 2012 @ 2:56 pm   90

Will once again mention that you’re still selling pretty much all PSP and Vita titles for greater than the retail price in New Zealand. For a digital purchase. In case you ever wanted to fix that.

 
salah75020 28 March, 2012 @ 2:57 pm   91

when the maj playstation plus will be posted on the blog ?

 

When will avatars be downloadable on the vita??
i already bought 2 of em and have’nt got a ps3

 
salah75020 28 March, 2012 @ 2:57 pm   93

when the maj playstation plus will be posted on the blog?

 

Firstly, where is The Treasures Of Montezuma Blitz wich was released for FREE on psvita last week, but you forgot to release it in Scandinavia?, Here in Norway all we can find is a Folder with no content added to the PS Vita Addon Category! :(

Secoundly, I’m wery happy with my Vita, But some few tweaks I hope will be done soon, like what about us access the Full PS store, and not only the Vita stuff, so I can buy the Ps3 stuff with my Vita aswell :), Also when browsing new stuff on the PS Vita store, you get all the games released to date in A-Z , I would much more prefer the Newest game on top and oldes on bottom, Just yet there is sadly not much released, but I hope this will be fixed soon so it’s easier to spot the few things released faster atleast

Third, You must make the ps3 able to watch Vita Thropies aswell, and also let the ps3 user see that we Vita owners is online, and what we are playing, kinda Marketing you know?, making our friends jealous so they want to buy one aswell… Just now they think none of my friends have, so why should I buy one….

 

Just Forgot the most important thing, Bring Vita Cloudsaves alive, It’s more essential than on the Ps3, as you can have multiple memorycards with saves on diffrent ones?, Also some PS+ love for Vita owners would be excellent! :), I would even buy an own ps+ subscription specific for Vita if there was one!

GalapagosaraY 28 March, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   96

When can we expect “Odin Sphere” for the PS2 Classic Collection, this was one of the 5 launch titles on the US PS2 Classic library and the game i was anticipating most of the bunch for the European one, its also the one thats been rated and most likely that means the most purchased on the US Store, how come it isnt on the European yet. Btw Grim Grimoire isnt on the EU store either

 
Opt1mus76 28 March, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   97

MotorStorm RC SPECIAL Super Car – Wasabi Lightning – US $0.25, UK £0.40
Why?

RedeyedRonin 28 March, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   98

will i ever get to play

broken sword: shadow of the templars
&
broken shadow 2: The smoking mirror

please put them on the store i dont understand why games like full spectrum warrior get released who cares??? we want uhhhh good games please im sick of modern dissapointments!

Strangeheaven 28 March, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   99

One more thing,will Resident Evil 4 ever come down in priced because thats way over priced aswell at £15.99, I know its a classic and all but im sure capcom has made there money of milking that title by now. I know it’s the publishers that decide the price and not sony. To me the game is worth around £6.99 to £7.99.

Many Thanks

 
supersmith2500 28 March, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   100

This PS2 game better not be from Midas again. I mean who would want to buy games that bore you out? Their games are above average and when I played Dragstars on PS1 back in the day from the Supermarket it was boring and I couldn’t even pass the first level.

Please tell Midas to stop releasing PS2 games for jesus sake, we already had like 10 or more of their games on there and while SEGA, Konami and Capcom only added like 2-3 of their games I mean, Midas and SYSTEM-3 just constantly picks games that are not worth buying.

And I want to ask when is the Sypro Trilogy going to reach PS1 classics? Spyro 2 was going to be on PS1 classics for Europe back in 2008 and was never announced until today. While on US Store on the other hand has all those Spyro while us left with crappy PS1 and PS2 games. If this PS2 title is from Midas again I’m seriously going to hate Midas more. I’m sorry Jawad but I just hate that company.

Also, nice to see Metal Slug 2 on here, always wanted to play that but too bad I don’t have enough cash. :(

 
aussiebloke90 28 March, 2012 @ 3:16 pm   101

Surely we get Shift 2/Shank 2? aswell like the US PS+ update? if not that’s quite unfair

 
vonhammer 28 March, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   102

@Jawad If want a 1 hour game trial with PS+,does it let me download patches.If it does,will that effect the trial time? It probably doesn’t,but I want to be sure.

 
JinglesEnid 28 March, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   103

Hey Jawad,

Any chance on letting us know whether Corpse Party will be coming to the PSN anytime soon, if at all? It’s available here in Aus on the iPad, but I’d rather play it on the Vita if it ever becomes available.

Also, I don’t know where to say this so whenever I post on here I mention it, but there really needs to be an option to alphabetise the games! Being a PSPlus member and one that’s upgraded my hard drive, I’ve got A LOOOOTTTT of games and going through heaps of them to find the right one is tedious, but alphabetising them would be great.

Also, Mini’s on Vita, PSOne on Vita, PS Plus for Vita…

Aaannnddd Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core please!!!

And and and… Silent Hill Shattered Memories!!!

And just to see if I get a response… Salam Jawad (it’s worked for others before.)

 
gtrfcc 28 March, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   104

when will avatrs be downloadable on the vita??
im asking cuz i bought 2 of em and can’t download them and i haven’t Got a ps3

 
jilthemin 28 March, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   105

It’s a shame that there is no PS+ content this week. I guess there is gonna be a lot of free stuf in the post of Ross. I hope you guys don’t dissapoint me. ;)

 
tmsmyth 28 March, 2012 @ 3:30 pm   106

No ‘Closure’ this week then. If this is a similar case as Trine 2, it looks awesome and i’m not waiting months, dont make me use the US store again please! Hopefully this will come next week but I somehow doubt it

 
mafayeu 28 March, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   107

Cool new neogeo games. metal slug 2 for me. want kof 97 and fatal fury 3 now i love blu mary…

 
BAZ1307 28 March, 2012 @ 3:37 pm   108

Where’s the rest of the Ridge Racer Vita DLC? There’s supposed to be another track and 2 more cars coming to the store by the 31st March, which is presumably the time that the Gold Pass no longer discounts all the DLC. So where is it? If they’re released next week and I have to pay for them, I won’t be happy…

The US Store already has the track Lost Ruins, and a car that we don’t have. I find that odd, since the game came out in the EU a few weeks before US. :(

 
shotgun_69 28 March, 2012 @ 3:46 pm   109

Is there any chance we’ll be getting the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 avatars that the US and Japan have had for about a year now? I just really want Deadpool as my avatar :(.

AcuraPSV 28 March, 2012 @ 3:48 pm   110

Hi joward

With all due respect, what is this? let’s be serious please vita ridge racer has been updated with new DLC content 1 track (lost ruins) and new car (meltfire) in U.S. store, what happens to us, is the second week with no content updates in the same week when must be in its official date(link on bottom), the Europeans have paid like the rest of the world, and deserve the same treatment, not treating us like stupid

The European store is unfortunate, even not displays information about the size of the discharge until the purchase is not effected, nor is there any pictures of much articles etc etc…

I regret having bought in the EU store, I am disgusted with the treatment they are giving us, we are the last to take up paid content and more expensive than anyone else on the world, very wrong and how things do not improve soon I will stop buying anything I do not like being taken for stupid.

 
irlLordy 28 March, 2012 @ 3:48 pm   111

So, if you’re trying to confirm one item, will the remaining plus stuff (if any) be going live on the store tonight, or will it only go live after the blog update?

AcuraPSV 28 March, 2012 @ 3:52 pm   112

3/27/12

ADD-ON COURSE 03 “LOST RUINS”

ADD-ON CAR 05 “MELTFIRE”

etc…

dgnfly 28 March, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   114

@jawad

are we still gonna get some more ps1 classic with that i mean like dino crisis?
i know this ain’t the place 2 ask but what’s up with the constantly getting signed out off playstation you guys getting hacked again?
that disgaea avatar isen’t on the dutch store?

 
scottad 28 March, 2012 @ 4:03 pm   115

Fingers crossed the plus update is the same as the usa.

Ryusennin 28 March, 2012 @ 4:04 pm   116

Seriously — where is the Journey dynamic theme?
Don’t tell us it’s held back by “localization” issues.

 
RasmusBierregaa 28 March, 2012 @ 4:05 pm   117

I know this is related to a separate post about the spring sale, but surely there must have been a mistake with the Danish pricing of Dragon Age 2?
It has only been reduced in price from DKK 249 to DKK 219, which equates to about 30 Euros and not 22 Euros.

 
JadoreSox 28 March, 2012 @ 4:07 pm   118

Seriously, do you guys want the Vita to fail? If you’re not going to bother releasing any content for it you could at least do some decently priced PSP titles to tide us over till the next game release in 2016.

 
Catkiller1 28 March, 2012 @ 4:13 pm   119

@ Cheeky4Life

You must of had either a dud copy or a badly scratched disc as I own Crash Bash & it works fine on my PS3!

Black_Gast 28 March, 2012 @ 4:13 pm   120

Question not related to the Playstation Store here – Would it be possible to add an option to delete software while it’s still downloading next system update? I’ve got a glitched download that’s been pending for weeks that I’d like to get rid off.

 
Chocobo115 28 March, 2012 @ 4:16 pm   121

there also seems to be no disgaea avatars on the swedish store :/

 
Unicronic 28 March, 2012 @ 4:22 pm   122

Jawad, a serious question here.

I’m a long time PS3/PSN/PS+ user and now a Vita owner. Lived in UK and then moved to Asia for business. So imagine my horror to see that the Vita – a PORTABLE device – is locked to one account only but it also means most games released in Asia are now useless to me especially ones like Unit13, Wipeout etc that require online passed to be redeemed in the Asia store.

I’m asking you help me in raising and escalating this issue as a genuine problem. It is not feasible for me to “kill” my EU account and all the trophies I’ve accumulated and I rely on my Asia account to redeem local content e.g. online passes etc.

The Vita – which should designed for mobility – is anything but, currently. HELP

 
Skookie30 28 March, 2012 @ 4:28 pm   123

you can stop download & even delete it.

-press triangle on the 1 you want to stop in download management you can pause a download too.

-press cancel to delete it.

-If you already downloaded it just press triangle & pick delete.

RKO_JPL7 28 March, 2012 @ 4:32 pm   124

I was really hoping for some better avatars this week. I really think Sega should make some avatars for Yakuza Dead Souls as it would be nice to have a avatar of Majima Goro.

 
supersmith2500 28 March, 2012 @ 4:35 pm   125

Have to agree post #118

Sony, do you really want the PSVita to be a another flop just like PSPgo? I mean seriously most of the launch titles are just crap, some are half-finished, ModNation Racers Roadtrip had NO online feature, Reality Fighters is too short and , Forbisher Says! has no trophy support when Welcome Park HAS and there still not much PSVita content on PS Store. Now get this.

When the 3DS struggled from launch date. Nintendo offered free NES/GBA games via Ambassador program to any one who bought the 3DS from launch date. Now If only Sony did this to their PSVita owners unless DECENT and BETTER games come out, I would be happy, the Vita is just not there yet but I’m sure better games will be out later this year hopefully.

 
guitardevil6 28 March, 2012 @ 4:35 pm   126

Can’t find episode 27 of Access anywhere on the store, latest one is still episode 26… :(

@122

Not sure if i should be saying this here or not, but there is a way around that
http://go.ign.com/zzwgFH this link should cover your issues.

Those hoping for Vita content, you’ll probably be waiting till E3 for anything decent, anyway im gonna grab those Wu officer cards sharpish.

Orodromeus 28 March, 2012 @ 4:42 pm   128

Heya Jawad!

Great post, thank you :)

I was wondering if you could please try to answer a few questions I have:

1. I understand Motorstorm RC for the Vita is free on the US PSN store. May I at least know why can’t we get such a title as well? Am just curious as to why there must be a difference between the two stores..

2. In my area, I can’t access Netflix (That’s not your fault)..But I understand there’s also a Movies/TV shows section to the PSN store..But I don’t have access to it. Do you, by any chance, know why is that? or if it’s likely to be available here at any point?

I mean, things like that are a bit unfair I think…We’re the same people, just from different places around the world… :)

Thanks ahead for any reply and have an awesome day!

 
Carnivius_Prime 28 March, 2012 @ 4:43 pm   129

I didn’t realise Wrecked was the new Mashed. They changed the title (I was on the look out for something called Gas – Fuel for Fun) and I didn’t know. Had no idea the game was ready. Shall download the trial and see if it’s as good as the excellent PS2 game I used to play with buddies.

 
CoolDust 28 March, 2012 @ 4:45 pm   130

Heard anything about the Hitman games hitting PSN? I dont think theres any chance of getting Contracts because of the copyright issues but Blood Money and Silent Assassih would be very welcome additions to the PS2 Classic games! HD upgrades would be epic, hopefully theres something in the pipeline! ;)

 

“Posted on 28 March, 2012 at 1:37 pm by James Gallagher
For those asking for the PS Plus content list for next week, we’ve been working on it all day but are not quite ready to hit this afternoon. Look out for it around tomorrow lunchtime.”

What about the “mid-month treats” announced by Ross for this month?

Not that I’m not happy with the content we got (it’s great!), but if you promise something…

 
MisterSim76 28 March, 2012 @ 4:51 pm   132

Hi

Please can you confirm if other DLC content for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is going to be released on the Store, for e.g. courses, clubs, etc etc. I only see coins for use in game. The game is being released this Friday – is it the case that we won’t get other DLC for Tiger Woods 13 until next week now?
Thanks

 

@127 (Orodromeus)

The free Motorstorm RC was offered in the US by a sponsor/advertisor.

BTW; it’s a great game.

 

Jawad! Can you please rectify the missing Ace Combat Air Assault “Compatibility Pack 8″ from the March 21st Store Update. You listed it in your blog listing but it is completely missing from the store.

 
R1MJAW 28 March, 2012 @ 4:58 pm   135

@Jawad – Thanks for the earlier reply regarding the Touch my Katamari dlc … I’ve just accessed the store via the games live area and all 4 dlc levels are available to download … I don’t know when the first 2 were uploaded but they definitely weren’t there 2 days ago. However, that is of no consequence now as all of the dlc is now available.

 
de3bs0 28 March, 2012 @ 5:00 pm   136

what is it with these store updates its like Sony doesn’t want my money.I got klonoa door to phantomile from u.s.a I surgested everyone do the same as you’ll be waiting weeks or even months for it to come to the eu store.I give up with the eu store u.s.a is totally better.

supersmith2500 28 March, 2012 @ 6:19 pm   140

18:20 and still no update, usually around that time it should be up. Why take so long??

 
JadoreSox 28 March, 2012 @ 6:19 pm   141

I get that you guys can’t do much if anything about the majority of our complaints here but do you guys even pass on the mass loads of criticism you receive on a weekly basis? Does SCEE realise what an awful service it’s providing because it’s getting progressively worse while you guys just keep shrugging off the regular incompetence and mistakes as much adu about nothing.

I can’t find the Katamari levels on the PSN store from my Vita or my PS3, but when i click on the Katamari store from the games dashboard it takes me to the store where there are two download requests available- Maids and Snowman. Where are Pacman and Maids?
These weren’t available before today so is it a mistake on the store update? Also, someone in the comments said that all 4 requests were available to them. Can you clarify the situation?

 

i just downloaded the Dynasty warriors next wang yuanji avatar but when i try to change my avatar in the account menu i only see a avatar of madai :S please fix this!!!

Where’s the Vita’s Shinobi demo?

 
VitalogyPJ 28 March, 2012 @ 6:28 pm   145

And why is the following comment “Where’s the Vita’s Shinobi demo?” awaiting for mderation!?

 
MafiaCub 28 March, 2012 @ 6:30 pm   146

In the first PS+ update of this month, we were told “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.”

Well, this is the final update, and surprise surprise, we got nothing! We’ve had nothing ‘slotted in’ all month. Well done, Sony!

US got told what they get for next months PS+ a week in advance, we might get told tomorrow. They get a free PSN game, Shank 2, which is still pretty new so great value, as well as Frogger later this month, and they also get a complete retail game of Shift 2.

Am I the only one expecting a smug post tomorrow to be worded “Well we have an exciting update for you, as we will be giving 5 whole games” … and we will get Frogger, and the 4 games the US store have had for ages, without actually getting Shank or Shift ?

I hate being jaded, I really do, but I don’t see why we were told we’d be getting those extra games this month and then everyone has avoided asking the dozen or so questions asking where they are from their customers…

 
dgnfly 28 March, 2012 @ 6:36 pm   147

@Jawad

Sony has pulled two PSP titles from the PlayStation Network, reportedly over concerns that they can be used in Vita exploits. Hot Shots Tennis (called Everybody’s Tennis in Europe) and MotorStorm Arctic Rift are no longer available for download from any device that connects to the PlayStation Store.

so are the games gonna be back on like our download list or you guys just steal from users. cause if they not gonna be back for download i want my money back.

 
seanoc1 28 March, 2012 @ 6:39 pm   148

Are we going to get Resistance: Burning Skies Augmented Reality Monument Viewer that was released in the US?
Are we going to get Closure (with trial and PS+ discount) that was released in the US?

PREYDRAGON 28 March, 2012 @ 6:48 pm   149

hi jawad Ashraf, have you heard any news from konami on re-releasing the yugioh games on ps1 and ps2. Would love to see them on the psn store. Please find out.

 
Bjarno86 28 March, 2012 @ 6:51 pm   150

@MafiaCub +1

PR rule #1: Don’t ever promise something and then not deliver.

PR rule #2: If you have to break a promise then do everything you can to tell your customers upfront as to why.

There was not a single “if” in the promise about getting those extra games as mid-month treats. And here we are…

We’ve also been told that they’ve worked hard to ensure that Plus in EU is on par with the offerings of Plus in the US. I don’t care if tomorrow’s Plus post don’t give us the same discounts that they are getting. The main games should _always_ be the same, so I expect to get Shank 2, Shift 2, Frogger Returns and Silent Hill. Otherwise it’s just one more broken promise.

Zhimm0s 28 March, 2012 @ 7:00 pm   151

Yo, is there any chance that alundra and breath of fire 4 might make an appearance in the EU? Maybe as imports from the states perhaps?

 
I_CAN_HAZ_MONEY 28 March, 2012 @ 7:03 pm   152

I’m not sure, but, I think there’s been a lack of PlayStation Home Content, recently. I’m not complaining, but, is this just because, The PlayStation Store doesn’t display them?

    Jawad Ashraf 29 March, 2012 @ 12:09 pm    

    I don’t deal with Home. There’s usually the odd post or so that goes through new additions.

 
supersmith2500 28 March, 2012 @ 7:06 pm   153

19:05 and PS Store still hasn’t being updated. Seriously I’m starting get annoyed at this. >X(

 
HazelAM 28 March, 2012 @ 7:09 pm   154

when are eu plus subscribers going to get the trials of the god of war games and infamous 2?

i know you say ask the publisher, but sony published those did they not?

and as you are a representative of sony, i’m asking you.

 
MafiaCub 28 March, 2012 @ 7:10 pm   155

And before anyone notes we got the PS Memories thing free from PS+ this month, if anyone pays for that they needs their head examined anyway. It’s barely advanced over the original picture viewer the PS3 had, and it’s certainly no where near as advanced as the variety of free picture viewers people get when they put an SD card into a PC or laptop. You can rotate pictures, and change the tones to 12 different pre-sets.

I realise not everyone has access to a PC, but that doesn’t mean you should take advantage and charge £15 just so they edit some basic photo properties. You don’t even allow text to be placed on the photos. There’s no copy and pasting, no merging, no basic editing at all. Just those 12 little pre-sets and the ability to rotate the image (not mirror it, either, just rotate)

Very poor, this should be free for everyone. It would still be largely pointless to most, but the fact it’s £15 is insulting.

hi, are you actually posting if PSP games have been updated to work on the vita?
on that matter, when are the following games, which already work on vita with their US version, made available?
- Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow
- Killzone Liberation

Lastly, why are Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron (both working with Vita) on UK store but not on German one?

GraFGrizzli 28 March, 2012 @ 7:40 pm   160

Jawad! Can you please bring Silent Hill and Tekken X SF avatars to EU store? I want to have avatar of Bubble Head Nurse so baaaad!

 
Xbox360Don1973 28 March, 2012 @ 8:09 pm   161

Unbelievable! Two weeks and nothing of any substance for ps+ users whilst the Americans get needforspeed [Deleted]2 and shank this week ! Why is there such a huge difference in quality of content I know we got trine2 free a few weeks back but that was because of the lengthy wait we had to endure come on PlayStation Europe sort it out !!!!

spankygibbon 28 March, 2012 @ 8:26 pm   162

>> “OMG WRECKED!!! Been waiting for this for aaages! €5? I was ready to pay up to 10 – 15.”

…. looks like you almost got your wish …. that appears to be the price of DLC …. so in order to get the game and DLC you are looking at over 15 euros !

… come back Game … all is forgiven ! – I’d want a disk for that price rather than it taking up precious HD space.

Shame … Micromachines, Circuit Breakers and Mashed were classics, but there are cheaper options out there, especially considering it has few tracks.

 
Banzai777 28 March, 2012 @ 8:41 pm   163

Hi Jawad

Any idea why TECMO KOEI doesn’t release their DLC in NZ? They are the only publisher who neglects their NZ customers as so….

It just doesn’t make sense, if it was a major issue, wouldn’t their be more publishers not releasing here?

 
Bumblebee 28 March, 2012 @ 8:41 pm   164

I can’t believe you messed up the Wrecked price on here! I messaged all my old Micro Machines/Mashed chums telling them it will be out tonight and is only four quid! I got so much abuse!

GGGGGGAHHHHHHHHH!

Captain-Ultima 28 March, 2012 @ 8:42 pm   165

Hey Jawad.
I downloaded the Soul Calibur V active wear game pack form the store, i noticed it says “Download Cepheus Compatibility Pack 1 to view details and use items” so i loaded up Soul Calibur V, went to creation to download Combatibility Pack and low and behold, it says: “There is no combatibility pack to download”.

Now if a item that needs the Combatibility Pack is already up in the store but no combatibility pack is available methinks somebody has forgotten to upload something.

Satnat666 28 March, 2012 @ 9:04 pm   166

Regarding the soul calibur dlc. I bought it today, but theres a Cepheus Compatability Pack required to use the dlc, which isnt in the store. I presume this is just a mistake and the Cepheus pack will be added to the store asap?

I believe the DLC only shows if you have enough Fan Damacies (sic) to purchase the levels, so if you only have 2-3 Damacies nothing will show but if you have 10+ (bought or gained through play) any/all of the DLC should show.

 
Shadowdragoon 29 March, 2012 @ 6:26 am   168

So, Cross region gifting, here soon?
Where is the 5 year celebration sale?
and why is Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 items not avaible in Norway?
(Same whit the free Vita Montezuma one released last week)?

MohdAKsnake 29 March, 2012 @ 9:13 am   169

Ok I will join in the Spyro requests. Here goes:

SPYRO SPYRO SPYRO SPYRO IN THE STORE NOW!

I wont buy from Ebay because they have shoddy sellers.
These shoddy sellers sell a game £7 and say its mint when realistically its not mint. Its scratched and will not work end of.
One of the members starts telling me about releasing relevant content in the store and I have not heard of Arc the Lad 2 and as far as Im concerned its not relevant to me but may be relevant to others. I would do this if I were in your position. Look for the most heavily requested games.
Push the owners of the game to grant permission for it to be released to PSN EU store and never give up.
Then put the titles in there.

and I suggest you do that please thank you. Its been requested for 5 years straight and you still did not do anything? how will you have satisfied customers then when you dont listen to them even for 5 years and to me that is a huge dissapointment. If the EU versions cant pass QA or legal rights then release them as imports now thank you and Im sorry if I said anything harmful

Not true, I only had 9 fan damacies and all 4 dlc levels showed up. However, they are not visible on the store (Ps3 or Vita), they only show up via the games live area … just touch on the area where it says about the dlc levels.

hans832009 29 March, 2012 @ 9:25 am   171

1. Can we have a price drop on the Flow DLC, seeing as though the main game recently had a price drop?

2. Will the UK be getting the Resistance AR Monument Viewer App for PS Vita?

Good work as always! :)

Any news on the PS Plus items this week?

 
kinglambert 29 March, 2012 @ 10:53 am   175

@russelguppy The Katamari DLC shows if i click on the dashboard link saying “We Love Pacman now available” but it doesn’t show if i search for it in the store on my PS3, Vita or click on the Katamari shop on the dashboard. Surely it should be available via all these methods? I prefer to download everything on my PS3 and leave it doing it’s thing whilst i’m out or doing other things rather than having 3 platforms downloading their own content.
Also, I have 15 Fan Damacys so i can unlock any level i want and i don’t think your Fan Damacys determine the DLC you can see in the PSN Store.
The is an issue with the PSN store

PS There is also a bunch of music DLC available only when using the above method and I’ve never heard of this being release on PSN???

 
LiquidSolid 29 March, 2012 @ 11:01 am   176

@Banzai777: Tecmo Koei’s the only publisher that neglects NZ? Ha, that’s a laugh. We’re missing a ton of PSP games (three Ys games, Corpse Party, two Cladun games, Prinny 2, etc) and Vagrant Story thanks to Square Enix, XSEED and NIS being total pricks and thinking we’re not worth bothering with.

As for why we don’t have the DLC, it’s because technically none of the games are released here. You’ll notice none of the new Warriors games have NZ ratings stickers on them, that’s because they’re all imported from Aus. DW Next is missing from the PSN for the same reason.

Sony lets all this happen because they’re incompetent and don’t care. Not to say Jawad doesn’t care but Sony as a company obviously doesn’t because otherwise, they’d actually try to fix it (or at least let people from other countries gift that content to us like we can on Steam).

Ok atleast some good news on gametrailers devil may cry HD series comming well i hope you bring it also here to EU!
my wishlist ps2:
1 Onimusha 1,2,3& 4 hd
2 Zone of the Enders 1 & 2 hd
3 Def Jam: fight for new york hd

ps1:
Castlevania Symphony of the night!!!
tenchu 1&2 :P
dragonball z (some weird japanese exclusive 3 against 3 and all)

 
Paul2007 29 March, 2012 @ 11:41 am   178

Full Spectrum Warrior has arrived! Typical, I do not have enough in my Wallet as I am short of 27c. Time to get another PSN Voucher.

Getting PlayMemories for free on PS Plus is very good so thank you for that. I had a quick look through it last night but will give it a full test drive later.

 

Looking promising according to the latest Flickr upload:

Catkiller1 29 March, 2012 @ 12:51 pm   182

@ Jawad

Please can you try your hsrdest to include file sizes, especially for PS3 Full releases. Darksiders was a whopping 10GB! I would like to download Mini Ninjas, but i’m not sure if i’ll have the space, once I download the free Need For Speed Shift 2 Unleashed!

Also, is there any chance of an offer for 12months subscription to PLUS? Last year they did 20% £31.99! I would prefer that alternative, than the horrible mistakes with the PLUS subscriptions that included a free game!

One last thing, where are the extra titles that were promised from the US promotion, as they had 12 free titles?

Kind Regards

 
Catkiller1 29 March, 2012 @ 1:01 pm   183

@ Jawad

Never mind! I found the file Size from the US Blog 6.3gb!

When will Closure release? Played the Trial from the US store & it’s great!

    Jawad Ashraf 29 March, 2012 @ 2:14 pm    

    We try to get file sizes to go with the blog but in reality this isn’t always possible.

    Closure hasn’t got a UK/EU date right now.

 
Twinkling82 29 March, 2012 @ 1:07 pm   184

Skookie30 29 March, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   185

for those who asked when Plus update i spy shank-2 & shift-2 as free ;D

 
RollingSun2000 29 March, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   186

@Twinkling82 Although “lunch time” was mentioned, I have no idea why I have 4pm stuck in my head. Maybe Jawad mentioned something like “4pm at the latest” or something like that. I’m too lazy to go through the replies and check.

 

@184: that’s because at first the Plus post was announced around 4 pm yesterday

than they didn’t manage that and announced today around lunch time.

which, again, they failed to meet.

 
dillusion 29 March, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   188

They seem to be negotiating with some publisher, hence the delay. However, I can’t understand how these negotiations are made in the last few days before update… Shouldn’t they be made in advance, weeks/months before? And also, why give us deadlines that you can’t meet?

 
dirtyCAT79 29 March, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   189

Jawad
Thankyou for taking the time to answer my comment. I honestly did not expect that.

Thankyou for explaining the situation clearly.

I am now sitting here eating some humble pie :)

From now on I will trust that the future of my Vita is in very good hands and fingers crossed that this time next year it will be widely regarded as the incredibly awesome gadget that those of us lucky enough to own one know it is.

Welcome to the PS EU Blog where promises are broken every week

 
MafiaCub 29 March, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   192

Nearly 2pm now… still no Plus post.

So does the Plus team intend on keeping any of their promises this month? or are we just gonna be ignored til next months update and then get shafted then too?

Cause really, I would have expected a meal and alcohol now but how much you’ve been [Deleted] around with us.

 
RollingSun2000 29 March, 2012 @ 2:21 pm   193

@186
I got the impression that the next PS Plus blog update will gives us the details of what to expect later in the month, not just what was in yesterday’s update. So with that in mind, deals really are being made weeks (not days) before they are due to land on the PSN. It could also be just one last minute deal that is holding it all up.

@185 – Thanks for the reply. That makes sense.

@188
What you say about people accidentally logging in as someone else seems very weird and Sony should look into that.
As for kicking that other person off your friends list because they hack accounts… um, I guess you should ignore people that ask for your log-in details or send you links that ask for your details. Game-sharing (or account-sharing) would be a no-no too.
P.S. Your comment is a nightmare to read. Try using punctuation instead of caps lock.

Do you know if there are any plans to put KoF 97 up at some point? It’s been highly recommended to me. I guess I could get it on another system, but I’d really like to use my PS3 fightstick for it.

Cheers.

 
dedday 29 March, 2012 @ 8:05 pm   198

I missed Siren Blood Curse and Sly Trilogy when they were on discount a couple of weeks ago. Any chance of they coming back?

And another thing: I bought Borderlands Game of the Year edition when it was on discount last year, but I haven’t gotten the game yet, only the dlc :(

 
chrisandsheva 29 March, 2012 @ 8:39 pm   199

Can Anyone here expand on a sign in issue i had last night, i attemped signing into my (this) main ac but was told i needed to reset my password, but when i clicked ok i got a psn under maintenance page. I then tried to see if i could log in on a spare ac, which i could, no problems, But when i signed into my gf’s ac i was taken aback, as apparently on her friends list i or Someone had been logged in on my (this) main ac 60 minutes earlier, and i know i hadn’t signed in on ps3 for over 5 hours, but had been on my vita since, then tried signing into vita, again a screen saying ‘need to change password’ but another error when i tried, so i was a bit worried now thinking my main ac is somehow hijacked etc.. this started around 9pm, and luckily i regained access to my ac around 12ish.. But what happened,?.. anyone else affected ?.

Kamikaze_Tutor 29 March, 2012 @ 10:37 pm   200

I have such a bad luck, I thought Siren Blood Curse would be on sale for the rest of this spring promotion. But seems like it’s back to its original price.

Yesterday I was trying to add a virtual credit card to my account but it kept giving me errors, so I decided I’d try it today.

Guess I’ll never get to play Siren then, I’ve always been curious about the game, but I still feel like paying €30 to satisfy my curiosity is a bit too much.

 
ChairyBoyArmy 29 March, 2012 @ 10:48 pm   201

When oh When are we gonna get “The Warriors” ps2 version re-released on the ps3. Its the on the psp yet no remake, plz give someone a nudge to get it sorted , as we all know it will sell like hot cakes on a desert island where money grows on tree’s and the more you buy the more you get free.

In short “Warriors come out to playyya”

 
campsk 30 March, 2012 @ 7:35 am   202

Jawed,

Is there an issue with downloading the coins for in-game use on Tiger Woods 13? I got my copy yesterday, and purchased coins off the store in order to buy the DLC courses, but the coins are yet to be added to my balance in-game. I note this morning that the option to buy coins from the PS Store has disappeared, and I’m not able to download them via my download list – is there any information you can share on this matter?

Many thanks

 
Catkiller1 30 March, 2012 @ 11:09 am   203

I would love to see “The Warriors” too! Very underrated little gem ;) Please add Canis Canem Edit/Bully, along with many other TRUE PS2 CLASSICS!

Kamikaze_Tutor 30 March, 2012 @ 8:45 pm   204

@Jawad Ashraf:

So is Siren Blood Curse not going to be on discount until the end of this sale? :(

 
bezbashni 31 March, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   205

Hi,Jawad. I’d like to see “Urban Reign” in the PS2 Classics. I think it’s the best beat’em up in the whole world . Many gamers will agree with me.

 
Catkiller1 31 March, 2012 @ 1:31 pm   206
