The good ol’ Doctor steps in this week for the arrival of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock on PlayStation 3. Journey through four London time periods and a number of alien locations in search of the answer to the mysterious Eternity Clock.

GhostReconFutureSoldier_Spotlight_PVWIMG

Ghost Recon Future Soldier Signature Edition releases this week on the 24th for Europe and 25th for UK. The Signature Edition includes the full Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier videogame and gives you instant access to exclusive content (see below for details)!

In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier, join an elite team of highly trained, cutthroat special ops soldiers. Armed to the teeth with unrivalled combat technology and cutting-edge military hardware, Ghost Recon takes you to the globe’s most deadly warzones to hunt down the highest value targets.

The Ghosts don’t worry about even odds. They do everything in their power to overwhelm and obliterate the enemy. Future technology is the key to winning an asymmetric battle.

Before the anticipated DLC is due, the Dark Knight himself creeps through the shadows in a demo for Batman: Arkham City, for those that are still on the fence about this incredible Batman game.

A new AR Game is also set for release this week – Table Top Tanks. Using your AR Play Cards you can draw the battle lines on any flat surface and create a theatre of war for your pocket-size tanks. Complete a series of missions and perfect your battlefield tactics, call in airstrikes against your enemies and take on up to three friends in Ad Hoc Mode multiplayer skirmishes. You can even use the “Solo Creator” mode to design your own levels and bring real-world objects into the game as obstacles.

In other news, check out the Uncharted 2 maps, as these are now free until 27th June when you’ll be able to get the first two games digitally!

I’d also like to apologise to our Plus users who may have noticed Datura was only made available for just one week. The team have reactivated this for another a week at 20% off as originally planned. Enjoy!

sadly yet no spyro or any popular ps2 games on the store, shame!!!!

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 2:37 pm    

    Spyro could be coming soon…but with all things, this shouldn’t be taken as a be all, end all.

 
CorrisD 23 May, 2012 @ 1:05 pm   3

Hey guys, any idea if the Dracula X Chronicles for PSP will ever hit the store here in the UK?

The US store has it, and as a big Castlevania fan I would love to be able to play one on my VIta at some point.

 
EternalChaos72 23 May, 2012 @ 1:05 pm   4

where the hell r the capcom avatars we waited for 2 years!!

Alestes 23 May, 2012 @ 1:06 pm   5

It’s AWESOME to see 3 of the Wonder Boy/Monster World games on PSN, just a shame that Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap isn’t included. I hope Dragon’s Trap find it’s way here eventually.

Also, seeing you started with PS2 games a while ago, any chance we will see PS2 imports of games that never had a european release before? I would absolutely LOVE to see Suikoden III on EU PSN as we never had a chance to play it before. And it would be nice to see Suikoden 1, 2, 4 & 5 on EU PSN too!

Thanks for the additional week of Datura discount, I missed out on that the first week it launched. Any chance of seeing Plus discounts on soundtracks (inFAMOUS2, flOw and Journey, anyone?)

 
colmshan1990 23 May, 2012 @ 1:09 pm   12

Table Top Tanks and Super Hang On for me.
Don’t think I should be spending any more money than that on games until after I come back from the Euros, although Sorcery is calling to me!

Are the SEGA games compatible with the Vita?

bidbaldwolf86 23 May, 2012 @ 1:10 pm   15

Hellloooooooooooooo

Just wondering if the Yu gi oh psp games will ever be available on the PSN and be available on the VIta?

Keep up the good work :)

 
Carnivius_Prime 23 May, 2012 @ 1:10 pm   16

Surprised the ‘new’ Mega Drive games are up the same time here as they are on the US store. I even spent the last five dollars in my US account on Monster World IV not expecting it to be here so soon. Oh well, needed to spend that anyways.

Very happy to see Doctor Who out. I would love a TARDIS avatar though. Looking forward to playing the game when the store updates later. I need some cheering up with my recent PS3 technical issues.

 
Roxas598 23 May, 2012 @ 1:10 pm   17

Is there a demo planned for the doctor who game jawad? Can’t risk the purchase anymore lol

Oh and how does the preorder of sorcery work? Does it download now then unlock at midnight Friday or star downloading on Friday?

No plus goodies today? Where is ross cause the US keep getting stuff every week :/ afaik

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:04 pm    

    Some titles do end up with demos later but at the moment there aren’t plans for the good Doctor.

    It will download on or around the day of release so long as you have set up your system to wake up automatically.

    He is sorting content regularly so when he lets me know of anything I will add them to weekly update.

 
cognac-vsop 23 May, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   18

what are the chances of seeing the Transformers Armada ps2 game published by Atari being released?? any chance at all?

netsan 23 May, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   19

When will we have the Journey demo that’s available in the US today ?

 
heathengray 23 May, 2012 @ 1:11 pm   20

>2 ultimate weapons

Ultimate? Really? The last ever, or so good you will need no other? How can there be two? Do they fight over which is the most ultimate?

Thank you marketeers for rendering another word in the English language meaningless.

Unrelated, but that’s a pretty good price for Order Up! It was one of my favorite games on Wii, I liked it so much, I got it for PS3 a few years later!

GenocideHeart 23 May, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   21

Hi Jawad,

Any chances of us seeing the Sega Ages version of Dragon Force, since Sega is now releasing that series’ games online?

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:16 pm    

    Sega is your best bet to ask on this matter. Remember, they will make announcements on their products before we will be able to.

 
KaiserSoza13 23 May, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   22

Where do you guys get the idea to charge €60 for a game that will cost €45 in store?

Skookie30 23 May, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   23

Yeah hurrah for the sega classics but 2 OMG that steep price for Dr-who i thought it be a tenner i think i wait.

Chocobo115 23 May, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   25

Dear SCEE and Sega,

The Mega Drive games are frustratingly overpriced.

Love

The Customers

grimbarian 23 May, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   26

I was really looking forward to the old Wonderboy stuff (I’m old school, what can I say)…. and then saw the pricing’s.

I know – it is trite to whine about 40 of my pennies. Then I checked out every other price.

Once again pricing is stacked in the favour of our American counterparts. On a digital download…. where it makes not one jot of difference.

Sorcery, Doctor Who, All retro releases, all overpriced.

It’s such a shame that this is mentioned every single week without fail now and there is nil to bumpkuss response from anyone.

So – can we expect a response today that isn’t the usual “we thought long and hard/it was a shame we couldn’t match/we don’t care”?

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:19 pm    

    We do not comment on pricing.

    On a personal note though, £3.69? It’s lunch money!

 
TalzUK 23 May, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   27

Great Update!

Will have to give Sorcery a try on Demo :) and is Alex kidd the origional Master System game?

PS1 Games Please – Casper, Digimon, Spyro, GTA 1,2 & London.

hans832009 23 May, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   28

Hi, the pricing for Fallout New Vegas: Lonesome Road game pack (in the Apocalyptic Sale is still wrong, it still says £7.99, when do you intend on correcting it, as the sale ends in a weeks time?

 
Izorpo 23 May, 2012 @ 1:17 pm   29

cheers for Wonder Boy games

seriously can you get some some rpgs in the ps2 section – the US got Persona 3 FES – why can’t we? also some other oddments like Steambot Chronicles, Mr. Moskeeto or US imports of ps2 games like the Harvest Moon that was only released in Japan and the US

the same could be said for psp games – there are rpgs that were released in US but not here

 
Rybo1314 23 May, 2012 @ 1:17 pm   30

When will we get The Walking Dead Episode 2???????

Chapel-Bill 23 May, 2012 @ 1:19 pm   31

Pinball Arcade out in Europe yet? NOPE.
Why the freaking delay???

 
ShadowGandalf 23 May, 2012 @ 1:19 pm   32

Sorcery Demo, Doctor Who, Revenge of Shinobi, possibly Super Hang on…. quite a few bits for me this week.

I’ll likely get Sorcery so look forward to trying it.

Furyia 23 May, 2012 @ 1:19 pm   33

I can’t find Tanks on the PS Vita store!

 
Tonxey 23 May, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   34

Hi Mr Ashraf,

Not to rain on whatever goodness there might be in this update (I’ve only skimmed it), but please could you tell us where the Flow soundtrack is? Last I heard you were ‘discussing’ it. What does that even mean?

If I don’t get a response today, I’m going to have to buy it off iTunes, which I’d really rather not do. This doesn’t reflect well on the EU store.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:25 pm    

    We’re looking to get that released some time in the future.

DiekStiekem 23 May, 2012 @ 1:21 pm   35

I’m still baffled by the fact that Capcom avatars take so long to hit the EU stores (Resident Evil 5, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Asura’s Wrath, etc.)

I can understand a delay of a week or 2 but we’re talking MONTHS here (in MvC3 & RE5 a year..).
I know there is a submission incoming, is this slowdown on Capcom’s side? Or are they floating in Sony approval limbo?
I (and many other) would like to know what’s going on exactly.

The almost year wait for those Darkstalkers avatars was already frustrating enough.

Nothing personally against you Jawad, I know you just manage the update blogs, but a lot of us just want an explanation for this expectional long wait.. can you dig up something?

Thanks in advance.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:39 pm    

    From what I have been told there are a ton of avatars to get through and this won’t be a quick job. So they are coming, just not as quick as you would like.

 

Any idea when Zen Pinball 2 will be released?

According to the developers very soon…

We urgently need more VITA on the Store! The current offering is abysmal!

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:40 pm    

    I can’t speak for Zen Pinball itself (have no received an update) but there will be more content for Vita oh so soon.

 
ShadowGandalf 23 May, 2012 @ 1:21 pm   37

Although I agree that the Mega Drive games ARE too expensive. I’ll wait for a price drop on those.

 

hey jawad any news on tekken 4 coming to eu psn

 
Bealinator 23 May, 2012 @ 1:22 pm   39

Nice price for Doctor Who and an even better file size! I was dreading a six gig install for some reason. I’ll wait till Friday, and if for whatever reason the Disc version is sold by GAME for £254 (a ‘bargain’) then I’ll download it.

Jawad – have you any idea if either the download or the physical copy (with a voucher) will entitle you to the Vita version either for free or at a discount to ‘incentivise’ you to get two copies of the same game? Love my Doctor Who but don’t want to pay twice for the same game!

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 3:43 pm    

    I haven’t been informed on any dual purchase incentives and the publisher has not made any announcements for such a thing either.

 

ALso, I can not find the bundles for the Fallout DLC in the Plus section?

Where are they?

 
lardteamaker 23 May, 2012 @ 1:23 pm   41

Good things Doctor Who and Super Hang on.

Bad things, no Daggerdale, Pinball Arcade or news on Zen Pinball 2. :(

 
cc_star 23 May, 2012 @ 1:23 pm   42

Revenge of Shinobi, Super Hang-On &the Wonder Boy/Monster World games? Here, TAKE MY MONEY!

 

or anyone in sony really want tekken 4 on it

 
Dave-The-Rave 23 May, 2012 @ 1:24 pm   44

Best update in a while, I’ll be getting Doctor Who and the Sorcery demo.

 
Synaesthesia1993 23 May, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   45

Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Such a classic game. Will definitely be purchasing!
However, do you have any idea when there will be Hyperdimension Neptunia avatars on the PSN store? Seems the US and JPN have them already…

BigPaja 23 May, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   46

Hello Jawad!

1. Flow Soundtrack
What’s going on? Why hasn’t it been published yet? Is the translation of this item’s description too difficult or something?

2. Previews
Sometimes there is content that doesn’t have any kind of preview when it definitely requires it. For example, 92 (!) PS1 games, including the recently released Twisted Metal, and 3 NeoGeo games lack a preview. They don’t have even a single screenshots to them. What’s up with that? Unless it’s an avatar or a soundtrack or something free (demos, trailers), it always needs to have a preview.

3. Warhawk for PS1
When will it be available to us non-plusers?

    Jawad Ashraf 23 May, 2012 @ 4:33 pm    

    It’s still being processed.

    The previews always get worked on and looked back on. If there isn’t one then there’s usually a reason why but it’s not something we’d disclose usually.

    Warhawk is only available to those who purchase Starhawk and redeem their network pass.

 
SergioDaly 23 May, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   47

great update… lots of stuff…

 

SEGA games prices are too high really. And not even the posiibility to buy them in a bundle..

Are we getting the bundles XBL is getting (Streets of Rage, Golden Axe,…) or the seperate (unreleased) games?

 
lardteamaker 23 May, 2012 @ 1:27 pm   49

@37 gamestation is saying £19.99 on their website for it.

 
EternalChaos72 23 May, 2012 @ 1:27 pm   50

I have every intention of getting Doctor Who, because, well, it’s Doctor Who!
But I’ll still wait for some reviews.

MrSmadSmartAlex 23 May, 2012 @ 1:28 pm   53

Was about to ask about the classic Sega games getting a EU PSN release, but they’re already here! Nice. :)

Any news on Legend of Dragoon yet?

Also, is Primal (PS2) coming over here a possibility? I think they just got it (or are soon getting it) on the US PSN.

 
harde1979 23 May, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   54

USA got Rock of Ages for free and we don’t? are u kidding me?

 
danielm1979 23 May, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   55

@38 Just go to the regular price-down section.

The logical interface of the PSN store is really an atrocity.

 
razordude 23 May, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   56

Dirt:Showdown

PSN = £39.99

PC version on Steam = £26.99

BuddhaBlue 23 May, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   57

Syphon Filter 2 must be buggy as hell.

That could be the only reason why it hasn’t been released here in Europe, considering its a 1st party game.

Am I right?

 
Hex-Ksa 23 May, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   58

we need Capcom avatars, please we can’t wait long enough.

hey jaward i don’t have anything with you i just want to answer this question many of us here are waiting for too long the capcom avatars i need when are you going to release RE5 and asura’s wrath and marvel vs capcom 3 avatars please tell me many of us are waiting for them too long please it’s really important do something thank you and i hope you answer to my question

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 10:04 am    

    Capcom need to submit them. They have a lot that need submitting…

 
GhostViper 23 May, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   66

At last, can’t wait for the TARDIS to materialise on to my PS3. This is gonna be great.
You know if there will be any Doctor Who avatars too?
And can’t wait to try out Tabletop Tanks :D

 
chrisredfield_97 23 May, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   67

WE need Capcom AVATARS ( RE5,MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3,ASURA’S WRATH)

Jucksalbe 23 May, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   68

Everyone should take a look at those Sega classic games. The emulation is perfect and you get a lot of settings to tweak. They are well worth the money.

Also, as every week: Any news on The Pinball Arcade? The wait is getting very long now.

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 10:05 am    

    Still waiting on an update. With E3 so soon getting feedback is quite tricky.

 
Shane_86 23 May, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   69

Sony you need to set up a price structure the store and stop these 3rd party companies from charging above R.R.P. on the digital store, not one physical store in the UK or Ireland will be selling Ghost Recon Future Soldier for £49.99 or €69.99 I can guarantee you.

 
kingcrowbaruk 23 May, 2012 @ 1:50 pm   70

Can we expect a Modnation DLC sale soon like the US already have?

Maybe remove the “Visit PlayStation.Blog.US” link at the top of the blog so people don’t get so expectant and then disappointed when yet again the US get more content.

 
Isdrake 23 May, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   71

Is there a possibility we will see Dark cloud for ps2 entering the PSN?

Welcome to another crap wednesday update. geez Jawad does it really take ages to submit some avatars that are 100kb in size does it really take all this time were are the capcom avatars ? studio avatars are a joke just give people what they want not studio avatars at least give us something decent every wednesday i check the store update and i see the avatars section its really upsetting :`(

I keep wanting to buy more games digitally, But when there sold at £50 i really can’t make the commitment, could you start pricing these digital games cheaper please, last time i checked infamous 2 was still £50!

the US price is $4.99, but if you added on 20% like you have to do for the UK, that would be $5.99, which is ~£3.80. so the game is actually marginally cheaper in the UK before taxes are added.

just because it’s a digital download, doesn’t mean there aren’t still differences. there are different costs to running data centres in each territory, and a load of other factors which can account for why prices aren’t universally identical.

Amy_Belgium 23 May, 2012 @ 2:07 pm   80

why every wednesday has to be like this. all we ask is for a 100kb picture. i wish we had a costum avatar application and btw now that EURO 2012 is approaching we should have some avatars with flags of the 16 participating countries at least

Frosty_X 23 May, 2012 @ 2:13 pm   82

How about a bundle discount on those classic retro games (Alex Kidd, Wonder Boy, Shinobi) £3.50 is a lot for each of them, can we please get some sort of bundle discount?

 
AlennTax_Eu 23 May, 2012 @ 2:14 pm   83

@15: Don’t hold your breath too long for the Psp Yugioh ! game to be ported on the store, since they won’t, because they use the UMD reader for some of their freatures. (UMD recognition/Egyptian Gods unlock via older games.)

Anyway, I can’t wait to try the Doctor Who game !

@Jawad, now: Any idea when PSOne classics will be available to play on the Vita ? Also, Tombi! ETA ?

Short whislist for PSOne/Two classics:

Breath of Fire 4
Suikoden 1/2

Dragon Quest 8
Star Ocean 3
Valkyrie Profile 2
Wild Arms 3

 
spoon_1992 23 May, 2012 @ 2:16 pm   84

Hey Jawad,

I was just wondering something. When resident evil 4 was released on ps3 we were told that we would be getting free RE4 avatars, however, I bought the game almost as soon as it came out but never got any avatars. They weren’t even available on the store. Now that they are available, will we be getting them for free as promised? Original blog post is here –> http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2011/09/16/resident-evil-4-is-coming-to-psn-plus-subscribers-get-50-off/

Also, I was just wondering why I Am Alive isn’t in the apocalypse sale? It looks like it is set in a post-apocalypse world and looks really good. I really want it but cant afford the full price :( any chance it will be added?

I know you are probably really busy but I’d really appreciate if you could reply :) Thanks in advance :)

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 10:07 am    

    This was before my time so sorting it out is a bit tricky. I’ll try and discuss this internally and see where I can get with it.

Cyberendpunk 23 May, 2012 @ 2:18 pm   85

Free UC2 DLC & SEGA rare classics this week, Harley’s Revenge DLC next week, Virtua Fighter 5 FS the week after that and factor in some games/dlc I haven’t accounted for. Yeah it’s about time I get my hands on another £50 PSN card :D So many awesome releases!!!!

 
ActRmx- 23 May, 2012 @ 2:18 pm   86

>> Sony you need to set up a price structure the store and stop these
>> 3rd party companies from charging above R.R.P.

£50/€70 is the R.R.P.

the UK and ireland are luckier than some of the continental countries (at least in my experience), in that games are generally sold well below the RRP by retail stores. i don’t know whether this is due to greater competition between retailers, or a much wider online retail choice, but unless outlets here are at or below £40 they will struggle to sell. and supermarkets often sell games as a loss leader to get customers into store. you can bet no publisher is going to sell a game at a loss digitally.

even if a digital copy was £5 cheaper, i’d still buy it on disc (or memory card in vita’s case), personally.

 
Kuja84 23 May, 2012 @ 2:24 pm   89

have a woo for dr who. Too much to ask for a demo? When is breath of fire 4 coming to the uk? Its been on the usa store for over a year. Would also like to see shadow hearts (ps2). Cheers

Sones1990 23 May, 2012 @ 2:27 pm   90

JoBot8000 23 May, 2012 @ 2:40 pm   93

Hi Jawad,

I asked last week about Red Faction II being released for PS2 classics, any news? I’d love to see that and Max Payne 2 as well, thanks.

 
Huono_peleis 23 May, 2012 @ 2:41 pm   94

No Doctor Who demo – no purchase. Speacially because I couldn’t find a single review. This is never a good sign.

Always wait for the reviews people! Remember “Amy”?

…and The Ratched and Clank Trilogy got delayed again. New ETA is now 27th June. :(

 
Wraith_Bringer 23 May, 2012 @ 2:42 pm   95

Hi Jawad!

You replied to my post last week about the pricing of NHL 12 on PS3 digital download.

Can I ask, has there been any progress here? I’d like to have a copy before my birthday on the 27th of June but if the price doesn’t come down, I’ll pick one up from GAME. Though I really would prefer a digital copy.

Warm regards,
Dan.

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 10:11 am    

    It’s been dropped from what Andy has informed me. I don’t think it’s a substantial drop, however.

What the flip!? Alex Kidd? Wow! Amazing. Loved that game on the master system.
Also, thanks for extending the promotion on Datura. Bought a move controller especially for it but by the time it arrived the promotion was over. Glad I held off buying it anyway. Keep up the good work!

grimbarian 23 May, 2012 @ 2:56 pm   102

@twistedintoform

Always good to hear logical counter discussion on these things. I admit I had forgotten about the extra 20% for UK.

However I think when you are a global distributer – and have been for as long as Sony – you will be aware that the customer will know the prices of products in other regions, and expect parity. (I accept in hindsight that all bar 1 of todays products do seem to be very closely priced – within UK and USA comparisons anyway) I would suggest that this is very rarely the case.

Without wishing to speak for your other “quotee”, the digital download case is definitely in need of a pricing revision. I understand your point about the R.R.P and stores selling below, however the market again expects a digital product to be available for less than the cost of a physical one. It’s happened with books, films and music – I think it’s only a matter of time before video games follow.

 
chrisandsheva 23 May, 2012 @ 2:58 pm   103

@ Store-Team.
Can you please explain why you are Still asking £57.99 for a YEAR old game ?.. am not interested in buying it, But really do wish to know reasoning behind this and other year old games ie infamous2′s ridiculous price tag, it may seem a minor detail to you, but when i see these items asking price i kind of just feel (to myself) that psn (eu) is both out of reach/touch with it’s customers and even insulting us. Someone above mentioned that a (New) games rrp is £50, yes that is true, but IF a store that must pay overheads, ie staff wages, rental for property, heating, or air-condition costs, lighting/general electrical bills and all/any other outlays CAN sell (mostly) Every new release game from £37to£39.99, whithout added bonuses, ie loyalty points, trade in etcetc.. WHy can’t you,?.. btw chech Red-Faction, Armgdd.. £57.99…lol.?..

Pixeljunk Monsters PSP was originally due to go live for Vita last week, but didn’t, to the surprise of even the developers!

Please can you send out a request to get it on Vita soon? My many blessings would be given for such an act. (no idea why I’m speaking like that, btw)

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 10:26 am    

    Speaking to someone about this. I will hopefully have word on this for next week.

Catkiller1 23 May, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   110

I don’t understand why XBLA have bundle releases for the SEGA titles but PSN doesn’t? :(

I would have thought the good Mike Kebby would have arranged for us to receive them too!

 
chrisandsheva 23 May, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   111

Also want to ‘thank’ the store-team for the armaggedon sale, i noticed the much debated AMY and it’s very low price, for plus, so i thought i ‘can’t’ really lose much by seeing this ‘game’ for myself, Boy was i wrong, i actually welcomed the thought of an armageddon event after ‘wasting’ about an hour of my time, (seemed much, much longer though) ‘trying’ to play through this ‘thing!’, just symphatise with anyone who actually paid full price And worse found that (yet again) they’d been, .. (gotta be careful here),.. erm, misled by another wrong ps-blog posts pr and promises of a ‘great game’, .. it does kinda seem that that happens often these days, ie a games dev or producer can get a whole blog page to ‘promote’ their product… what if they were asked to return, say a few weeks later to answer any ‘questions’ then… if they agree (beforehand) then great, But if there maybe too busy… well That heads-up would be nice.

Skookie30 23 May, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   112

@Catkiller

come on man it’s SCEE we talking about they shafted good mike kebby like the rest of us.

but you know what funny with MS is they having a hard time HA HA 360 Are banned in germany now that’s a console & 18 pegi rated games.

 
supersmith2500 23 May, 2012 @ 3:25 pm   113

Still no true PS2 classics, *sigh* When is Capcom, Konami, EA etc. going to add their games. I bet CS2 is a another cheap budget game from Midas. :(

Nice to see more SEGA Classics but here’s the thing Jawad. Any chance when will Sonic & Knuckles be released on PSN? Xbox Live Arcade has it and £3.69 for just a SEGA game? Jesus christ why does everything have to be so overpriced now? -__-

 
chrisandsheva 23 May, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   114

Not hanging around much longer, so, seeing as it doesn’t seem to be mentioned (?) just let you know that the BATMAN demo is on a 15 minute timer. you Can keep restarting it, but it really doesn’t do this good game any favours, imo… as your lucky if you can get a true glimpse of it all… on similar note i Would be buying DR WHO, IF it was trial and unlock, or i had some idea on how it’ll play… Also great news for us WALKING DEAD fans, this epic (imo) game reached over a million downloads last week, truly deserved, again imo.

 
Constan92 23 May, 2012 @ 3:32 pm   115

BigPaja 23 May, 2012 @ 3:35 pm   116

@ 107 supersmith2500

Conflict: Desert Storm II is not a “cheap budget game” from Midas, it was released by Square-Enix. They released Just Cause and Deus Ex in the past two weeks and they’ll release Conflict: Vietnam next week, too. But that’s all I know about their plans on the PS2 front for now.

Commandofin 23 May, 2012 @ 3:37 pm   117

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 1:13 pm    

    It gets complicated as different people need to be involved at different stages. Ideally we’d love for things to be released quickly but it just doesn’t quite work that way.

Well, and where are our Dragon’s Dogma and Ghost Recon Future Soldier avatars?

Ohh yeh, there was somithing with “long process for avatars” and so.. cmon guys, you had weeks and months to prepare the same thing as your SCEA colleagues successfully did. Yep that means, its another SCEE “fail” in someones eyes. I mean, you released the digital version of GR:FS, so why don’t you complete what you started? Avatars have the same priority… maybe not for you, but for us!

 
Bovrillor 23 May, 2012 @ 3:49 pm   123

Perhaps in light of the new Batman content, a sale is in order for the Robin/Nightwing DLCs?

Crysis 2 and Deus Ex could really do with a DLC price cut as well. I’d bite on all 3 games at 50% off.

I took the plunge on all the fallout DLC last week, that’ll keep me busy until you get round to these :)

 
Carmanen 23 May, 2012 @ 3:53 pm   124

Hi, Jawad. US just got Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare psone classic so i would like to know if EU can get it later too?

And… …is there any news on psone compatibility on Vita? E3 would be a great place to announce that it’s ready ;)

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 10:56 am    

    I think it was originally publisher by Infogrames so may be difficult to get a hold of for EU markets. I could be wrong though!

    No update on that but if E3 is a good place then I wouldn’t announce it here then, eh?

Just the free Motorstorm RC dlc again for me and the demos. Will wait for the Vita version of DW next month to see if there are any offers or a demo comes out.

Nice to see some retail titles available digitally on the same date though they would need to be discounted to give me an inventive to buy, not interested if I can get a physical copy for less that also has resale value. Still, it is progress.

 
Diablo_Rosso 23 May, 2012 @ 4:08 pm   129

I love how there’s no mention of the price drops for Everybody’s Golf, Reality Fighters and Modnation Racers Road Trip. They’re £11.99 now.

 
Technogamer 23 May, 2012 @ 4:09 pm   130

great update, i wont be getting doctor who yet as i would prefer to get it on vita and im not paying twice for the same game.

just wondering, is there any chance the UK store will see Castlevania: Symphony of the night PS1 classic anytime soon? i noticed the US store had it free for PS+ users this month and its pretty unfair they have had such a gem of a game for nearly 5 years now and it STILL hasn’t hit the UK store :(

have a word with konami please? :)

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 1:17 pm    

    Ross is always trying to convince Konami. I’m not sure if they’re looking into still or just given up. I’ll ask Ross if there’s any change.

RichZtar 23 May, 2012 @ 4:13 pm   131

Will there be an update on the Psp essentials range or the Vita-compatible Psp games anytime soon?

3rd Birthday is part of the essentials range. Although, I would like to buy 3rd Birthday on the psn store, the current price is twice the amount of essential psp games.

oO-x_HeNoC_x-Oo 23 May, 2012 @ 4:24 pm   133

no MVC3? :(

 

@38 @52: The bundles for Fallout are not in the Belgian store at all. Even under the game itself. I already asked Playstation België about it on fb, they should have send the problem to London, but no update after that… So maybe Jawad can give us more info about it?

Apart from that: Are we going to see a discount on Modnation DLC? I’m interested, but I don’t want to pay 30 euro for it, the game is 2 years old after all…

And on other thing: The store updated, but the DLC for uncharted 2 is still charged the regular price and not free…

Graffin_UK 23 May, 2012 @ 4:38 pm   135

Not seeing those free maps for Uncharted 2 anywhere!

 
A_Nonny_Moose 23 May, 2012 @ 4:40 pm   136

Okay, seriously. Are we EVER getting Sumioni for Vita?

tarsanell 23 May, 2012 @ 4:45 pm   137

Another vote for Dracula X Chronicles on PSN. I’d love to play it on my Vita!

Graffin_UK 23 May, 2012 @ 4:46 pm   138

When the PS Store updates today, everyone worldwide will be able to download the following DLC content for Uncharted 2 absolutely free of charge:

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Drake’s Fortune MP Pack
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Golden Guns
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Sidekick Skin Pack
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Siege Expansion Pack

Nope, still have to pay for them!

 
extermin8or_ 23 May, 2012 @ 5:01 pm   139

YAY dr who, although… when’s the ps vita version out? :P The ps vita does seem to be struggling for store content atm and other than that good update :)

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 12:42 pm    

    A Vita date hasn’t been announced just yet.

    More Vita stuff should be coming as soon as next week.

 
NiroseDK 23 May, 2012 @ 5:10 pm   140

Will star wars battlefront renegade squadron ever be playable on a ps vita

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 12:43 pm    

    If the developers are keen to make it compatible then hopefully, yes.

Zhimm0s 23 May, 2012 @ 5:19 pm   141

Hi Jawad, is Breath of Fire 4 and Alundra heading are way as imports soon, Since the states have had both for nearly a year now.

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 12:44 pm    

    Last I heard BoF was being looked at. Alundra I am asking about if it’s possible.

 
Bristow9091 23 May, 2012 @ 5:38 pm   142

Woo! Alex Kidd in Miracle World! It’s one of my favourite games EVER!

I think I’ll also try out that AR Tanks game, since I’m loving the AR tabletop football game, I play it with my brother quite often, and neither of us are really big fans of football, unless it’s the euro or world cup ofcourse (Although England never wins anyway!)

Anyway Jawad, I’ve got a question regarding PSP games on the PSN: Would it be possible to put the first two Star Ocean games on the PSN (The PSP remakes ofcourse), I mean, I could always buy them for the PSP on UMD, but lately I’ve been buying a lot of games off the PSN to play on my Vita, since they look so much better on the Vita screen (And the picture is bigger!) and I take my Vita EVERYWHERE, so it’d be convenient too!

Also, how’re you today? Are you burning to a crisp like myself? Stupid weather! It’s 32 degrees here in South Yorkshire!

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 12:46 pm    

    The Star Ocean games are Square Enix so it may be a while if it ever happens.

    And yes, it is very hot! Luckily the office is fine.

 
Platinum-Gstar 23 May, 2012 @ 5:41 pm   143

What is it with adding more THE STUDIO AVATARS! THEY SUCK! WE WANT MORE AVATARS! The US Playstation Store has way better avatars. COME ON BRING THOSE AVATARS TO OUR PS STORE. Thank You

/rant over

blacha500 23 May, 2012 @ 5:41 pm   144

Hi Jawad,
Any news on some SSX DLC coming out?

 
squidward88 23 May, 2012 @ 5:43 pm   145

has the dlc for table top tanks been taken off the store cause it wont let me download it i’ve paid for it. it doesn’t appear on my download list and on the item itself is rate or recommend

blitzkrieger001 23 May, 2012 @ 5:53 pm   146

Nice jos SCEE, again, no DD and GR avatars. Really smooth.

 
RemyX-1988 23 May, 2012 @ 5:56 pm   147

The extra week discount on Datura is nice, and I’d love to get the free DLC maps for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but my PS3 is broken, so I can’t download anything! I can access the Store on my PSVita, but that only shows Vita-content.

Sony hasn’t even called me back about the repairs! They said they would call me early this week…

I sure hope I get a PS3 back before next week! Probably not. :(

 
DrNate86 23 May, 2012 @ 6:03 pm   148

Any chance Max Payne 2 will see a PSN release in the near future? I’m dying to play the new one but have yet to finish the last!

 
Dante_Zero 23 May, 2012 @ 6:32 pm   149

what happened to the t@g app for vita which was supposed to launch in May.?

 
WaterElemental 23 May, 2012 @ 6:41 pm   150

Whats the file size of Sorcery please… the game itself, NOT the DEMO!! Thanks, WE.

 
Basket21 23 May, 2012 @ 6:55 pm   151

@WaterElemental

The US store says :
File size 5.98 GB

spose the EU version is about that also

 
WELSHDRAGON_74 23 May, 2012 @ 7:17 pm   152

I AM GLAD I DNT LIVE IN AUS AS DIRT SHOWDOWN IS 5 DOLLARS SHORT OF 100 DOLLARS GEE ITS VERY EXPENSIVE TO BE A GAMER IN AUS

 
Shadowdragoon 23 May, 2012 @ 7:40 pm   153

Still not getting the Disgaea 4 DLCs? Did some reading on the NIS forums, seems that there was a similar incident whit the Netherlands PSN store, and then it was that scee in their infinite wisdom (read that as stupidity) demands support documents in native language of stores, What those suport documents are for, not us users, as we do not see them… scee quit this stupidity, most of Europe know English..
Next point, when will the following PSP games be avavible on the Store? The ones whit (VITA) is not vita compatible.
Astonishia Story (Vita)
Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (Vita)
Final Fantasy Crisis Core
Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
Invizimals
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleap
PoPoLoCrois
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Thrillville
Valkyria Chronicles 2 (Vita)
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
Third:
Cross Region Gifting. WHEN?

 
TheMethod 23 May, 2012 @ 7:42 pm   154

I would like to see the Original Motorstorm and Motorstorm 2 hitting PSN much like the Uncharted series is doing…any info on this that might quench my thirst?

Cheerio,

TM.

Turbine_inc 23 May, 2012 @ 7:59 pm   155

what? the free maps for uncharted 2….is that the same free maps that naughty dog said would be part of the large amount of free content for uncharted 2 that would be released before the end of 2009? or is that a completely different set of free maps….because i dont remember any others

 
Big_Boss85 23 May, 2012 @ 8:13 pm   156

Why do the Sega games cost more than they do on 360? this is bs.

 
mJ_mSv 23 May, 2012 @ 8:37 pm   157

Wohooo… Just Bought Modnation and Everybodys Golf for Vita at 1/2 Price on the store, why did you not announce that?, I guess you would generate lots of sale of it :)
Also Reality Fighters is for sale, but I have already that one thought!, But thanks for making those titles really affordable, just the price drop I’ve been waiting for :)
Let there come more simular ones soon, but remember to announce them aswell :)

 
modhelius 23 May, 2012 @ 9:56 pm   158

And where is Pinball Arcade? Is has been out for Xbox in Europe and on PS3 i America for one and a half month! And SCEE do not even bother to comment why… Well, I have been very loyal to the Playstation platform, but that will unfortunately end NOW

MonkD13 23 May, 2012 @ 10:23 pm   159

Dear Mr. J Ashraf,

i’m in South-Africa & we dont have the Uncharted 2 Maps for free. These are all still priced in our local currency.

Could we please get Super 15 Avatars. For those who live in the Northern Hemisphere, here’s a link to Super 15 & what it is,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Rugby

my reason for asking is this, there’s Avatars of European football or soccer(as we call it here) clubs. in the store, but there’s NO Avatars of ZA, AU or NZ rugby clubs.

Thanx
Monkd

P.S. Our rugby is BETTER than yours

 
Bahamut_MW 23 May, 2012 @ 10:26 pm   160

Hey Jawad i just wanted to thank you for looking into Datura’s discount and getting the extra week. By the way do u know if europe is getting persona 3 fes as a ps2 classic?
Thanks

Quinlank 23 May, 2012 @ 10:59 pm   161

Can we at least get a reason as to why the Sega games are being released as more expensive single game releases compared to the much cheaper bundles they are released as on Xbox? Seems a very strange thing to do on one platform but not another.

I don’t really mind so much that I can buy Revenge of Shinobi without having to pay for Alex Kidd and Hang On (Both of which are garbage to be frank), but I’d have much rather the Monster World games were available as a bundle.

What’s going on with that?

Ryusennin 23 May, 2012 @ 11:00 pm   162

Those Mega Drive prices are awfully expensive.

 
adumr82 23 May, 2012 @ 11:23 pm   163

how are you not advertising the Vita game price drops? No wonder people get so annoyed about missing these things. It really is backwards of you.

 
mazegami 24 May, 2012 @ 12:10 am   164

nothing for me this week :/ considering everyone’s whining about psone and ps2 games you’d think you guys would release more than one a week. and maybe ones people have actually been asking for? :( have always been a ps fangirl but so disappointed lately. also could you let me know if that 13-2 dlc last week really was the last ever? not your fault but that was very disappointing too. loved the costumes however but i always do :) please please please get onto whoever controls psone/2 going onto psn and tell them to get on with it. here’s just a few id love (even though some i own they’re just getting a little temperamental recently): dark cloud, dark chronicle, shadow hearts 1&2, san andreas, vice city, suidoken (since 3 i think wasn’t released for Europe), koudelka, ecco the dolphin, parappa, ergheiz, chocobo dungeon & racing… ok there’s definitely more but you can see what im getting at here!

 
bandoors_ksa 24 May, 2012 @ 12:11 am   165

TaffyApple 24 May, 2012 @ 12:33 am   167

some ps2 games like spyro will be released on the ps store when they are announced as playable character in playstation all stars (title fight.(which will probably be E3))

im hoping for a price reduction on infamous 2 when cole is announced this is all speculation but it sounds logical, they already said some games will go on sale when the characters are announced, like the one that happened a couple of weeks ago.

mumbo_jumbo_au 24 May, 2012 @ 3:51 am   168

Hey,
No specials on Flow and Flower akin to the US?
Cheers

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 2:12 pm    

    Andy may (strong MAY) do something with these in a later sale or offer of some kind.

boombolenath 24 May, 2012 @ 6:14 am   169

Whats the word on T@G for the vita?? is it still releasing this month? and will it be available to all vita users?

 
Samipuss 24 May, 2012 @ 8:30 am   170

cant see the afl live dlc or the free uncharted 2 dlc in store?
cheers

 
pb-live 24 May, 2012 @ 8:47 am   171

Just to update my request: Pixeljunk Monsters Deluxe HAS now been added to the Vita compatibility list for Europe.

Yes! Pixeljunk Monsters is now downloadable and playable on Vita. AND it’s on offer.

Now to lobby for the Burnout games…

 
nitefighter 24 May, 2012 @ 8:47 am   172

when will ‘wanted corp’ be released in the uk its been out for ages in the us and i’ve asked several times with no response ???????

 
adumr82 24 May, 2012 @ 10:37 am   173

This site is really terrible on mobile devices, do you not think you should have a mobile friendly page? I’m sure the American site has one.

 
FBZ1501 24 May, 2012 @ 10:38 am   174

Everybody Golf for the Vita purchased for £11.99!!

This is either a mistake or the least advertised sale!
Either way I’ve snapped it up!

When I looked last night it was £29.99 on the store accessed via the Vita but £11.99 on the store via the PS3 ?

 
Fllysurfer 24 May, 2012 @ 11:16 am   175

I already bought the physical copy of Sorcery. I must say its the ONLY reason I bought move controllers and 1 NAV…way way back… so I wonder, since the game is only a projected 6h, is DLC being made for the game?

 
Catkiller1 24 May, 2012 @ 11:56 am   176

TOMBI/TOMBA anyone? ;) http://goo.gl/G96Sv

So according to the article, if this title sells well (which I expect it will), then we could see TOMBA/TOMBI 2!

KillaT2501 24 May, 2012 @ 12:04 pm   177

Finally correct pricing on VITA games!

DOWNLOADABLE GAMES MUST BE CHEAPER THAN HARD COPIES OTHERWISE WHAT’S THE POINT?

Now you have got to sort out PS1/PS2/PSN compatibility and Remote Play and we’ll have a truly great device.

 
Catkiller1 24 May, 2012 @ 12:17 pm   178

WOW: http://goo.gl/SOEJE

I’m a big Street Fighter fan & I hope this arrives within the UK too! Wouldn’t want to pay Custom charges for importing that heavy lot!

If it does release, I hope it’s no more than £99.99 ;)

    Jawad Ashraf 24 May, 2012 @ 2:06 pm    

    You have no idea how much I want that… Getting some pre-ordered ASAP!

 
Catkiller1 24 May, 2012 @ 2:45 pm   179

@ mumbo_jumbo_au

we’ve already had a SALE on those titles mentioned within the 14th March store update! I doubt we’ll have another SALE on them so soon!

Hi,

Is the £49.99 price for Ghost Recon Future Soldier Signature Edition already inclusive of a 15% discount for Plus members? Or is the price for Plus members actually £42.49? (hope my maths is right)

 
ArchDark 24 May, 2012 @ 3:43 pm   182

any information on the release of episode 2 of walking dead? there is literally no info on the net and i bought the bundle and am starting to feel a bit robbed :(

 
Catkiller1 24 May, 2012 @ 4:02 pm   183

@ ArchDark

It was mentioned on day of release & numerous times on this Blog, that the Episodes are released monthly!

The next Episode should be Wednesday 30th May, as the first Episode was released on the 25th April.

Kind regards

 
bennyrafal 24 May, 2012 @ 6:32 pm   184

Hi Jawad, Any chances for PS+ subscription discount?

 
Simiad 25 May, 2012 @ 8:22 am   185

Any news on the next episode of The Walking Dead game?
It’s been a month and they’re advertised as being monthly releases.
It’s hard enough having to wait five months for the finale – don’t keep us waiting over a month for each episode!

please? :)

crazygato991 25 May, 2012 @ 8:23 am   186

How long do i have to wait to buy for plantation store?

 
Simiad 25 May, 2012 @ 8:25 am   187

@Catkiller1
Just missed your post. I was expecting it to be a same day of each month release but even if it’s every 4 weeks (universal standard for a month) then it should have been released this week.
30th of May is a 5 week wait.

crazygato991 25 May, 2012 @ 8:25 am   188

I keep getting this code:(80023163) what the heck is this?

 
Simiad 25 May, 2012 @ 8:28 am   189

Sorry for the multiple posts, it’s early and things come to me slowly as my brain is old and withered.
I’m just wondering why the actual Fallout 3 and Vegas games aren’t available in the Apocalyptic sale – surely that would be a better bundle; all the DLC and the actual game itself.

crazygato991 25 May, 2012 @ 8:33 am   190

Johnny walker told me keep moving foreword.

crazygato991 25 May, 2012 @ 8:33 am   191

The Fallout bundles with extra discounts for PlayStation Plus members do not appear in the (Belgian) Store!!!
Hurry up & fix this please before the discount period is over!!!

 
Catkiller1 25 May, 2012 @ 10:32 am   194

@ Simiad

The thing is, the 23rd May wasn’t quite a month but it should be next week. I expect a delay as usual though ;)

 
Buck-60 25 May, 2012 @ 10:44 am   195

Hi Ashraf

Do you know when Closure will be released over here?

Thanks a lot.

Graffin_G 25 May, 2012 @ 12:27 pm   197

The free DLC for Uncharted 2 is now up.

Note that if you imported the UK Platinum version (BCES-00727), you’ll have to download the DLC from the UK PSN Store, as the AU PSN Store only has downloads for BCES-00509 (which won’t work if you’ve got BCES-00727).

And, one more thing. It says we’re meant to get Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Golden Guns DLC for free too, it’s available on the US Store (as “Golden Weapons DLC”), but not on the AU or UK Store. Could someone please look into that?

 

Thanks Jawad for fixing the Fallout bundles!!

 
ArchDark 25 May, 2012 @ 2:23 pm   199

any info on the walking dead series? please anyone? episode 2 is till not here thanks in advance for a reply

 
ArchDark 26 May, 2012 @ 10:50 am   200

@Catkiller1

where did u get the 30th date from?
because the last one was released on the 25th i thought they all would be i.e every 30 days as oppposed to 1 at the end of every calender month which is a bit long :(
i wont be pre buying games if this is how it is,
no official statements just the same info u have which is the same vauge info as when it was released, the 30th has not even been confirmed

 
nalla87 26 May, 2012 @ 3:40 pm   201

Surely we should have a PS Plus update for next week by now? Isn’t it time for some fresh perks??? I’m itching to find out what’s coming next…

 
Ania_Dawid 27 May, 2012 @ 8:53 am   202

@nalla87 – yep, it’d be great.

bj1234567891011 27 May, 2012 @ 7:18 pm   203

hi jawad, just wondering if there is any chance of seeing the ps2 Lord of the Rings games ( two towers, return of the king and the third age to be specific), or would there be some kind of licensing problem with them?

    Jawad Ashraf 28 May, 2012 @ 9:47 am    

    I’d imagine there would be heavy licensing problems with those games and games similar to it. Occasionally they’re doable but generally more obstacles involved.

 
Catkiller1 28 May, 2012 @ 10:42 am   204

@ ArchDark

The 30th is the next store update. I said the 30th, as it’s the closest store update to when the content should have been released (25th). Obviously we don’t have store updates on a Friday ;)

Didn’t say it was confirmed, hence ‘SHOULD’!

If Episode 2 is delayed further, then I can’t see anyone else purchasing the Season pass, to titles like it in the future.

PLPietras 29 May, 2012 @ 11:19 am   205

SPYRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Spyro is the GREATEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
