‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 1 August 2012

Autobots, roll out! Get a taster of Activision’s latest Transformers game in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Play as Bumblebee and Vortex as you fight your way through two exciting chapters of the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game. Then take the fight online with Team Deathmatch and Conquest multiplayer modes, and get a sneak peak at the new character creator.

The much awaited Rock of Ages comes out today which will also be included in PS Plus. There’s also Puddle for PS Vita that I know some folks were asking about last week.

For DLC check out those adorable Disney Princess costumes for LittleBigPlanet 2. If adorable isn’t your thing, then perhaps fighting spirit is – check out extra characters for Street Fighter x Tekken. New fighters include Bryan Fury, Lei Wulong and one of my favourites, Guy.

Andy’s Summer Sale also begins today which you can find by clicking right here. Titles on offer range from LA Noire to Toy Story 3, so hopefully there’s something there for all.

Hi jawad

Please answer

1. Are we any closer to getting Crash Bash? Last time we spoke you said you were waiting to hear back on Crash Bash, so what’s the latest update you can give?

2. I don’t understand as this is a Sony game and therefore should be quicker to get released, as the only other Sony games that are wanted are the spyro classics, altogether there are only four games that are wanted so why is it taking so long to process these games?

Are Sony’s Q& A testing methods exceptionally slow or something?

    Jawad Ashraf 1 August, 2012 @ 2:35 pm    

    1. No update.

    2. Like it’s been mentioned, a lot of various reasons can throw a spanner in the works.

CasperH01 1 August, 2012 @ 2:01 pm   2

Wolf pack DLC!! AWESOME :D

TwinBlade04 1 August, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   3

Hey there Jawad! :)

I have one question: Is Evolution Studios done with Motorstorm Apocalypse DLC and updates?
I ask this because the Move update never happenned and there still is an empty downloadable event slot in the game. That last DLC event was never released (among other DLCs, like the gold rims).

Hope you can answer this ;). Thanks in advance!

    Jawad Ashraf 1 August, 2012 @ 2:39 pm    

    Sadly I don’t have information share at this moment. If anything does happen be sure to look out for an announcemen on the blog.

Those who want to see PS1 imports from Square Enix, like myself. Please register on their forums and respond to this thread.

Let’s make it the most active thread on their forum! (without any spammy nonsense posts, of course).

EternalChaos72 1 August, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   5

yay for more disgaea 4 avatars :D

almighty-slayer 1 August, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   6

Nothing really for me, i don’t think. Is there a demo for Puddle? Might give it a go if there is.

    Jawad Ashraf 1 August, 2012 @ 2:42 pm    

    I think there might actually be one…I haven’t got confirmed on it though but it’s possible.

TOMBOY25 1 August, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   7

this is gonna seem odd but any chance of naruto/one piece/bleach avatars they all have games for the ps3 as as an anime freak id love some

So, any news on any Castlevania games coming our way?

LordRed91 1 August, 2012 @ 2:05 pm   9

As usual, any news on :

1) Persona 3:FES. The US got this months ago.
2) Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2. Ghostlight submited these in MARCH!
3) PS1 compatability for the PSVita.

Carnivius_Prime 1 August, 2012 @ 2:05 pm   10

Strange use of the word ‘exciting’. I tried the Fall of Cybertron demo on the US Store and it was very dull and with clumsy controls just like War for Cybertron. Graphics were a bit better (could actually see what I was doing) but nothing else has improved. Nothing else on story appealing (and seriously when will Capcom stop ripping their customers off with those stupid prices for overpriced DLC)

RagingAvatar 1 August, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   11

Will SFxT Vita come with a code for the PS3 extra character content for free?

SGTSTEELFACE 1 August, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   12

Hi Jawad will GTA III be released here when it gets released in US

millgate1 1 August, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   13

Hi Jawad,
Thanks for the update.
I was expecting this, but why didn’t we get War of the Monsters like the US? Do you know when we can expect this to hit the Store?

A_Nonny_Moose 1 August, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   14

Okay, can I please get an answer. Is there any news whatsoever on Sumioni (Vita game) getting an EU release?

S-o-h-a-i-l 1 August, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   15

No option to pre-order Sound Shapes ?

Also the Escape Plan DLC price seems a little steep compared to the US price.

Will we ever get Auditorium HD?

m97s312a 1 August, 2012 @ 2:07 pm   21

Hi Jawad

Will the EU Store be getting GTA3 ps2 classic like the US Store?

Thanks

kyleonline 1 August, 2012 @ 2:08 pm   24

Good update jawad but do you know when terminal dlc is coming to the ps3? For mw3?! Thanks if you do answer!

TheBigBoss0001 1 August, 2012 @ 2:08 pm   25

I also wonder about Crash Bash. No news in the last 2 years now.

Bahamut_MW 1 August, 2012 @ 2:08 pm   26

Any news about which games will be on sale?
Also any chance of getting spyro in the next weeks?
Thanks

DAVIE222 1 August, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   27

JAWAD! PLEASE! HURRY UP WITH SPYRO 1,2 AND 3 (PS1 GAMES) THE U.S GOT THEM SO SO LONG AGO AND !M SICK OF WAITING! I BEEN WAITING FOR YEARS!!! I WANT THEM ON MY PS3 AND MY VITA SOO BADLY!!!!!!!

Chocobo115 1 August, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   28

Jawad,

Could you please pull some strings for Dino Crisis, Lunar Complete (both games) & Alundra for PS Classics??

azakajam 1 August, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   29

Still waiting on the PS1 compatibility for my Vita Jared :/

a7md1990 1 August, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   30

JAWAD!! you’ve promised us an EU Spyro release.. any news regarding that?.

AlexPSN89 1 August, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   31

@ Jawad:

Hi there! I’m back – the update’s pretty neat, but this time I chimed in just to ask about Spyro. I know it’s coming (as I always bug you with the same question, I know), but I just wanted to make sure it’s still gonna make it to the EU store. Are things going well? I mean… is the process… how can I say… still going onwards?

Also, kudos for the summer sale, I’ll check if there’s PSP stuff later (I know there’s a list on this very page, but accessing the PSP store is kind of more direct to me).

    Jawad Ashraf 1 August, 2012 @ 4:08 pm    

    It’s still coming. The process is still ongoing with it. As soon as I have an ETA I’ll share it but still nothing as of yet.

DAVIE222 1 August, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   32

R.I.P Vita

and as usual a horrible update seems SCEE will never improve might as well shut it down considering nearly nothing get’s released and what is released is hardly worth buying. the whole SCEE as usual is pointless yet they don’t seem 2 understand that.

@USERS
it’s pointless asking for anything cause ppl been asking for games for years and they still get the same reply no info or no improvement so might as well complain about the bad service’s in general.

azakajam 1 August, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   34

I mean Jawad, damn it! xD

all I want for August is Dawnguard for Skyrim (I guess Cicero has missed me) and Tokyo Jungle (I’ve take care of Tales of Graces for myself)

and I bet I get neither :(

AlucardDHK 1 August, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   36

Any news on Portugal getting the Youtube app?

Nightmare966 1 August, 2012 @ 2:12 pm   37

Whoops, TF: FoC Demo size isn’t there Jawad! :P

If anyone’s wondering, it’s 2.1 GB and it installs an extra 2045 MB on the HDD (unless something escapes me).

On the other hand, I feel this week’s update, other than the Plus freebies, is quite empty. I hope next week we get a few more stuff.

Cyberendpunk 1 August, 2012 @ 2:12 pm   38

Ugh! I have noticing store updates getting worse and worse every week for some time now. No notable PS1 or PS2 titles have been added for what seems like months, and NA just got War of the Monsters this week -_-

JameZ-83 1 August, 2012 @ 2:12 pm   39

Hi Jawad,

Any update on when/If Lego Batman 2 DLC is released to the rest of the world? (America has it allready)

infernalmonkey1 1 August, 2012 @ 2:13 pm   40

I kind of hope Crash Bash never gets released, just because it’s so amusing to see ‘cheeky4life’ rushing in here to ask where it is every single week.

chrisredfield_97 1 August, 2012 @ 2:13 pm   41

hey dude what’s up i wanted to ask you for the last time do you have any news on assassin’s creed 3 avatars plz if you have i would to know it’s really important so have a nice day thanx bye!!!! :)
