Hi jawad
Please Answer

1. Any update on Crash Bash making it on the store?, if so will it be released this year and will it be the PAL version?

2. Now that you’re in regular contact with telltale, any updates on getting Wallace and Gromits grand adventures? I have tried contacting them, your my last hope, please ask them for it, pretty please with a cherry on top.

3. Lastly any updates on Monster House a PS2 Classic? THQ are good with PS2 Classics, have you asked them to submit this particular title? Is there any chance we can get it soon?

Many Thanks

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:10 pm    

    Hey there everybody. I’m afraid Jawad is away from his desk today. I’ll do my best to answer where I can but please don’t get too upset if I can’t answer everything – as is the case with your queries Playtoy_17!

@ Jawad:

Hi there! Guess who’s back for some Spyro-related questions!

Actually, I kind of know that you guys are having issues with Spyro, so, given you liked last week’s drawing, I thought it’d be nice of me to give you guys a further (drawn) encouragement. Send this to the QA guys!

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/EncouragementForSCEE_again_Spyro_byAlexPSN89_small_1489.JPG

Any news at all about the purple dragon? :)

Playtoy_17 24 October, 2012 @ 3:01 pm   3

Jawad

Another point I forgot to mention, is that on the new store, certain ps1 and ps2 classics still have thumbnails on, can you get this sorted out please?

thanks

 

Hi Jawad.
Any idea when Tomba! will hit the PSN for PS VITA?

Regards,

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:13 pm    

    Sorry, I can’t give you a date, but I believe this issue is being worked on at Monkeypaw.

Hi Jawad,

Do you happen to know when the EU will be getting the Netflix app for the PSVita? Any clue on if we can expect to get it this year?

 
almighty-slayer 24 October, 2012 @ 3:02 pm   6

No Retro City Rampage.

So i guess it will release next week when it will be buried under a ton of huge releases.

Guess i’m not buying that one anymore then

The Swat Pack for sleeping dogs rock!

 

Oh some DW7 avatars, niiiice!

 

sorry about this but it has to be a weekly question wheres spyro for classics ??? why can we not get this people have including me have been asking for years and its getting pathetic i know its not your fault jawad but i feel like the eu community gets ignored for instance where is counter strike go of eu ??? its a major let down to us dedicated psn users

millgate1 24 October, 2012 @ 3:04 pm   10

Oh and, the PlayStation All-Stars BETA for PS3 is now available to all, correct?

@Jawad,

What about the Eye of Judgment DLC discount possibility?

Could you please answer this time?

 

also no retro city feelin let down buy sony eu =/

 

Symphony of the Night?

We needeth status, thanks.

 
Dark-Twisted 24 October, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   14

Any date for Vita PS+ details? I’m kinda holding out on buying games until I know what’s free next month.

Also, is Ape Escape in submission? I’d love this on my Vita.

Also, it’s a shame Singstar wasn’t the big feature of this post. I get the feeling criticism would have been tamer if it was optional from the store, or at least removable.

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:20 pm    

    Vita Plus info coming very soon. Still due to go live in November.

    I’m afraid I’ve got no Ape Escape intel for you!

 
luke858585 24 October, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   15

Any progress on the PS Imports games which have horrible issues such as running @ 50hz instead of 60hz? Alundra, Klonoa & Tomba to name a few?

 
mike_291990 24 October, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   16

F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5

Post becomes available… no Retro City Rampage

Noooooooooooo D:

 
Kung_Fu_Russ 24 October, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   17

But what about Retro City Ram………Oh, I give up. Do whatever.

 
euphoricape 24 October, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   18

dark souls!!!!!!!!

 
EternalChaos72 24 October, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   19

jawad is that all the avatars? only dynasty warriors 7?

 
Chocobo115 24 October, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   20

Okami HD next week? :O

And just in case of that you hacve missed it Jawad:

I really REALLY want Xenogears PSone classic for my vita.

 

so are there plans for bring the EU Naughty Bear Double Trouble like the US received in their store update?

also noticing we aren’t getting as much dlc for Tokyo Jungle like they did yesterday.

why and the prices on ps2 games are ridiculous £7.99? all ps2 games on US store are $9.99 – will you please use http://www.xe.com in the future and give us fair pricing on games

TheBigBoss0001 24 October, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   22

What’s ahppening with Crash Bash (PS1), is that game even on your list? It was “on top of the pile” among the PS1 games a year ago, and now there’s not a word about it? Come on give us some information, we’ve waited long enough.

 
Jamesyp00 24 October, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   23

No PS+ Full trial of Medal of Honor like the US got?

 

No Retro City Rampage? What on Earth is PEGI/Sony doing with this game? Putting bowler hats and monocles on all the characters? Setting up red phone booths on every street corner? Replacing dollars with euros? It is beginning to turn from silly to embarrassing at this point.

Those who want to see PS1 imports from Square Enix, like myself. Please register on their website and comment to this PSOne blog entry.
http://eu.square-enix.com/en/blog/playstation-classic-urban-chaos-out-psn

Also, it would be nice if the PS1 imports that are supposed to run at 60Hz were fixed, so they run at 60Hz and not 50Hz.

 
euphoricape 24 October, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   26

dark souls!!!!!!!!! Best game ever made imo

 

So a few things…

1. Any news on Spyro, last we heard it was October but it seems like it is going to miss that? And PS+ saving on it too?

2. Any news on SotN as it was apparently to be released a few weeks ago?

3. Any news on Mass Effect 1 hitting the store? the Trilogy arrives on PC/360 November 3rd but nothing on when it will arrive on PS3, really looking forward to playing it again.

4. Can you inform someone who sorts out the sever side trophies that the new Singstar trophies don’t sync and as such give an error code and endlessly tries to sync.

5. As I’m sure you know a few people don’t like the new placement of the Singstar app, I don’t know who you have to talk to, but I would ask that you suggest a game services category like you do TV/Video, of which you can bung in Singstar, Free Realms, DCUO and Dust when it arrives.

6. And any chance you could ask the firmware guys to put back the trophy functionality that puts the last game you played at the top of the trophy list, it used to be like that which made sense and now unless you earn a trophy you have to dig through the list to find the game.

7.Also, how long till the next update on future PS+ stuff?

Cheers.

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:26 pm    

    1. No, but Jawad might :(
    2. Ditto
    3. Ditto
    4. I’m sure the relevant people are aware of this issue, but I will check
    5. Feedback noted!
    6. Feedback noted!
    7. The next refresh to the IGC is November 7th, so we’ll have a post up on Oct 31st (or thereabouts) with more info.

 

hey jawad hope your ready for the usual onslaught of abuse you receive you must hate this blog sometimes.

looking forward to the update to pick up some sale stuff and im really tempted to buy monkey ball is it digital only?

could you also find out if we could get spiderman avatars added?
with the bluray of the movie due soon and with it being a sony pictures franchise i dont see why it would be a big problem to get some on the store. id be very happy if you could find this out for me.

anyway have a nice day.

Only one Wednesday left in November, so Retro City Rampage must definitely be coming out on the 31st, eh? :P

Any news on Jet Set Radio Vita? Sega UK seem to think they’ve already released it: http://www.sega.co.uk/games/jet-set-radio/

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:27 pm    

    Heh, Sega are misinformed. I know they’re working on it – it shouldn’t be too long now.

 
komori_kiri 24 October, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   30

Please remove that Singstar icon from the XMB. Or at least create the option and give us the choice to do so.

That [DELETED] “game” going F2P is no excuse to force it on your users. It went F2P for a reason: no one’s interested in it in the first place.
And no one will be now.

 

Any word on a rollout plan for Playstation mobile for the rest of europe?

 

Now would be a good time to release those Dark Souls dynamic themes which have been on the Japanese store for over a year now ;)

 

its so annoying we are willing to pay money for games we cant get =[

 
aaronwalkeruk 24 October, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   34

Hi Jawad, good update. Unfinished swan and Killzone for me!
Did you ever get a response about Suminoni Demon Arts and any news on Retro City Rampage? Thanks

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:31 pm    

    I’m afraid XSEED has said nothing about an EU release for Sumioni. As for RCR, I’m chasing an update now…

 
brucewillis215 24 October, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   35

Still no Spyro?
But i have a complaint about the update that came last night, that Singstar game icon annoys the heck out of me especially because i can’t throw that game into a folder and moving the trophies was kinda weird but that´s okay but i should be able to move the singstar game into the playstation 3 folder that i have. can you please ask the guy who manages the singstar game or whoever was in charge of this update, it´s quite stupid to force us to have a Singstar game when 50% of people don’t even want to try that game

 

Nice update despite the usual absentees. It’s all about KZ HD for me this week, definitely buying that.
Nice to see some new Vita games too, although the price on a couple are a little high.

 
Mr_Writer 24 October, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   37

Hi just a quick question. When is the next plus refresh due? It feels like its been weeks since we got 2 new plus games.

Jucksalbe 24 October, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   38

The Pinball Arcade DLC should be Pack #5 not #4. #4 was released last week. It should also (hopefully) be available on Vita.
Also, the Tokyo Jungle DLC should be an Animal Characters Bundle and not an Animal Costumes Bundle.

 

@10: I hope so, been looking forward to it all week

 
Hellscovern 24 October, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   40

No PS+ free game this week we have only had 2 so where is the other two are we getting on the last day of October ie next wednesday when the store updates

    Fred Dutton 24 October, 2012 @ 3:33 pm    

    You’ve had 3 games this month – Hell Yeah, Bulletstorm and Resi 5. That’s about average for a calendar month. More news on the November content coming very soon.

The_Great_Ali93 24 October, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   41

where the hell is counter strike GO this is beyond unprofessional its been over 2 months and over the past few weeks you havent even bothered to respond to people’s questions about it instead ignoring them and your excuse of “we will inform you more as the situation changes” is no longer vaild as its been two months and you clearly know what the issue is and whether or not it will even be releashed so why not inform us?

Mattsta001 24 October, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   42

Poor Europeans. No Dyad, no Counter Strike GO, no Retro City Rampage. You guys are better off making a US account and buying a US PSN card online. SCEE are hopeless.

 

Hi Jawad,any news if we getting skyrim as its been months now,if we not getting it then aleast tell us it’s not coming out on ps3.nice update,I’ll be buying super monkey ball and a few avatars thanks.guess I owe someone an apology for last weeks post I wrote sorry guys.

 
cognac-vsop 24 October, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   44

PLEASE REMOVE SINGSTAR FROM XMB! or atleast change its location, or give us the option to delete it! ITS ANNOYING!!!!

 

1. Will Medal of Honor: Warfighter be avaible in Poland?

2. Any news of upcoming PLUS updates (GOTM etc.)?

spagetti69 24 October, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   46

Sounds fantastic.

Any chance of Resident evil 2 being made compatible to Vita for Halloween?
Maybe PS1 Xcom too.

Thanks

 
Ankh-Morpork 24 October, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   47

Hi Jawad! Do you think Valkyria Chronicles II will ever get a price drop?
I think official support on the Vita + a price drop would be good for the Vita. Or perhaps add it as a game for PS+ come November.

Thanks! :)

The_Great_Ali93 24 October, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   48

Also great to see Super Monkey Ball costing £30 here and $30 in the US. Wasn’t aware £1 = $1 these days :p

£15 in shops!

 

Still no Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. 2 months and still no news, what a shame. Don’t release it at all, with Medal of Honor Warfighter and Black Ops 2 coming out soon, I guess CS: GO community will be a desert shortly.
Good job, SCEE, the way this year’s biggest 3rd party PSN release has been a complete fail.
