‘Heads-Up’ Store update 21st November 2012

Prepare for battle as this week we launch PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. PlayStation’s greatest assemble to unleash crazy combos and signature moves in evolving arenas. Play in a variety of competitive or co-operative game modes or learn the ropes with tutorials and character trials. What’s more, purchase on PS3 and you’ll get the PS Vita version included. Who will you play as?

The final episode of Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead is upon us. Through the choices made in the previous episode, witness the events that are about to take place in this thrilling conclusion to a fantastic series.

DmC_FeaturedImage_PVWIMG

Elsewhere, Capcom’s DmC sees a demo release today. Dante’s latest demon-slaying adventure boasts familiar gameplay with a twist. See our recent Blog post for more on what to expect. If you like the demo, be sure to pre-order from PlayStation Store as you’ll get the Vergil’s Downfall DLC for free when it releases in early 2013.

AR-Screen

On PS Vita, show off your artistic talents and create your own virtual graffiti using a variety of tools and techniques in t@g, a unique Discovery App. Again, see our developer Blog post for more information.

PS Vita owners can also get funky with Sega classic Jet Set Radio. There’s also the very appealing (we all love Kinu Nishimura’s designs) visual-novel game, Virtue’s Last Reward, and acclaimed horizontal shoot ‘em up Sine Mora.

You’ll also find that this week Sega’s deeply satisfying and gorgeous PSP title, Valkyria Chronicles II has been reduced in price and can be purchased for just £9.99/€12.99.

A packed week indeed, then. Peruse the list below for the full list of content coming this week, including DOOM Classic Collection, LEGO Lord of the Rings, Chronovolt and plenty more! Oh yes, and there’s also the Activision sale, which you can find more information about right here .

Have a fab week gaming! Maybe you’ll bump into a really bad Raiden/Dante player in All-Stars online. That would be me…

Retro City Rampage, yahoo!!!!!….. ehh.

The Lego Lord Of The Rings PSVita Price?????

@ Jawad:

Hi Jawad! How ya doin’, buddy? I’m back again to check the Spyro situation. Last week you said you’d ask the QA guys what was the problem, exactly, so my question is, do you have some more info to share? Or some vague date, for that matter?

At the moment there are some games keeping me busy, but Spyro would be perfect for me to start playing with my PSP on a regular basis once again.

Thanks in advance!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm    

    It’s possible it might release before 2013 after all, BUT as usual, I don’t want to be taken as confirming it. There should just be one or two more rounds to go through so it should be out early December assuming these checks go through without a hitch. Have faith!

Mougurijin 21 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   4

Nice update, although nothing that really interests me.

Where is Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus (PS3)? It’s so disappointing how much longer it’s taking than XBox.

XBox Live:
24th Oct 2012 – Japan, US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy
9th Nov 2012 – Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, …

PSN:
1st Nov 2012 – Japan
still waiting – North America, Europe

The Japanese version of the game is pretty much (completely?) identical to the English version.

It’s already on PSN, but not in this region on PSN…

Why the completely unnecessary massive delay?

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm    

    This isn’t something I work on or this post even relates to. I’m sure your concerns are being noted, however there won’t be a response from me on this, sadly.

INS1GHTFUL 21 November, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   7

good week for vita owners – gravity rush (free!), jet set radio, chronovolt (free!) and sine mora all for me!

That Vita update seriously makes me think about getting one.. Great update :)

E_Darkness 21 November, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   9

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is supposed out on PSN this month. And now there is only one week left :|

PSVita compatible PSP Games – there aren’t coming out no more, are they?

fazleycatta 21 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   11

Best Vita update ever.
Thank you so much. Long may it continue – it even made me buy Plus (even though Santa is bringing me a PS3)
Well done guys, I know you get a lot of stick on here but this looks very promising. PLEASE keep it going.

runicdagaz 21 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   12

DmC demo, that alone makes it a good week. :)

Question: Will the Disgaea avatars ever arrive in Belgium?

grtz!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:04 pm    

    There were some released previously, no?

    The DmC demo should calm a few people’s fears down somewhat. Definitely give Son of Sparda mode a shot.

Carnivius_Prime 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   13

Still no Retro City so not much for me to play out of this lot but I have downloaded Uncharted Golden Abyss and the other Vita freebies for when I get a Vita (likely in the New Year).

I’m tempted by All Stars but can’t really afford a full price title at moment. Again maybe in the New Year since I’ll then get to have it on Vita too. :)

zaqair123456 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   14

Any chance that I Am An Air Traffic Controller: Airport Hero Haneda will be making its way to the PS store?

Lethalx08 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   15

Store has updated. Just a heads up. Been live since around 2.

martinfletcher89 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   16

when will hitman be availble on psn?

wow great update any chance of plus for vita download on my ps3 so in future I get a vita I have them cheers

k1ll1ng5pr33-NL 21 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   18

Is the Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning price (€30) correct? The US price is $60.

are we able to add vita items to our ps3 download list to download to a vita at a later date

napalmjam360 21 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   20

i hate store updates eu always get shafted no retro city no cs waste of time and money

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:08 pm    

    Those are the only 2 games you’d ever want? A number of great titles today for both PS3 and Vita.

Ok, I have a question, is Full Game Trial is dead for us, as we havent gotten any new since… you know. And meanwhile US PS+ for PS Vita get 6 free games we get only 4, hmmm.

supersmith2500 21 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   22

Great Store update but still upset with no Retro City Ramapage. Shouldn’t be long now since the EU version is complete and is entering certification soon so hopefully shouldn’t be long. In speaking of which, people won’t have to complain about when is Tomba! 2 AND TWD Ep.5 coming. ^^

Ok, I have a question, is Full Game Trial is dead for us? As we havent gotten any new since… you know. And meanwhile US PS+ for PS Vita get 6 free games we get only 4, hmmm.

Nice update, happy to see PS Plus on Vita with such great deals.

I already know the answer, but I’ll try anyway: Jawad, have you any update to share about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? Are we going to have it at least before 2013? Why is it taking so long to land on EU PSN?

Jesse-Blue 21 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   25

SINE MORA is live for PS Vita and costs EUR 14.99
You might want to correct this price before complaints are poring in about refunds!

tomba 2 before the americans? i think jawad broke also when will both 1 & 2 be available for the vita to download?

will the gravity rush dlc have a sale due to the fact it’s on ps+ like the other usual games do?

KushMonkey 21 November, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   27

Yay, we have the final walking dead episode.

Will we ever get the Marvel vs Capcom avatars?

What about planets under attack your article on the blog last week said it was out today??

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:11 pm    

    Slight issue holding it back but we’re hoping to get it out either later today at the earliest, if not within the next few days. I can’t promise anything but I’m chasing it up.

only 2 good things about this update Tomba 2 and Virtue’s Last Reward.
the rest is just horrible overpriced DLC.

@jawad
is there any point in asking for certain content or are you guys still ignoring everybody.

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:13 pm    

    Requesting content doesn’t mean it will, or won’t come… I think it helps to ask. Not spam, but just put it out there, you know?

    If it helps, I heard Symphony of the Night might be ready quite soon. More info once I get it…

discount for Saints Row the third ultimate package – does this mean the individual bits of dlc are discounted as well? I already have the game

Dr-abdulelah 21 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   31

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was $49.99 in saudi playstation store (pre-order)
now $64.99 why?????
can you fix this please

So another Tomba! release that isn’t compatible with PSVita?
Any word on when this and the original game will be available with this feature?

Nordlyset87 21 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   33

Best update ever :D

Just one question for PS+ peoples is a Dynamic Theme of When Vikings attack but says it’s unavailable?! Can you check this pleas or did i miss something?
Thanx in advance :)

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:28 pm    

    From what I understand this is available if you pre-ordered it – is that the case?

MartinB105 21 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   35

Great update. :)

Does DOOM Classic Complete have the vastly improved ambient soundtrack and sound effects from the PlayStation (PS1) version?

Since our Vitas now inform unintelligent people how to access the menu when starting a PSOne game with 2.0 (showing them how to change discs), I excpet Resident Evil 2 to once again be tranferable to the Vita seeing how you took it down because someone didn’t know how to change discs, no?

Also, Castlevania Symphony of the Night is a great game, It should totally be on the store and not in QA for 6 months.
Here’s a little secret, the american eboot works, no QA, use that one!

cs go?

Elite_1989 21 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   38

Hi Jawad, is there any news on whether any of the Timesplitters games are coming to the store under PS2 classics.

Also the add-ons section of the store needs to be fixed.
Recently I’ve noticed that none of the new content shows at the top of the list like with other parts of the store and is usually half way down under content that came out a few weeks back and is a bit of a mess trying to find stuff as it isn’t as organised as other parts of the store.

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:29 pm    

    You can sort it using the filter.

    There’s a new petition out for Timesplitters to get a HD treatment. I suggest you sign it. I have!

pinkplaybunny 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   39

Thanks for the valkyria chronicles 2 price drop. Any chance of the same on the dlc for the first one?

Silent_Gig 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   40

Can someone on the EU blog team explain how i take advantage of the cloud saving for PSVITA?

Mellors86x 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   41

Fantastic update this week, happy to see PS+ on the Vita, a very strong package just before Christmas!! Any idea when we will get an update on whats coming for PS+ on the Vita in the coming months? Much like we get with the PS3 version. Cheers

Black_Gast 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   42

Tomba 2, Devil may Cry demo AND Borderlands 2 DLC? Wow, you guys really went all out on this weekly update. Best update ever even. Little question though, does Tomba 2 work on the PS Vita?

Hi Jawad,

Sine Mora Vita version is at the moment at 14,99€ on the store instead of the 9,99€ you announce. Is this an error? PS3 version is correct (9,99€). Thanks for your help.

@Black_Gast: apparently not

andrewsqual 21 November, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   45

Wow @awwe_se , why not complain about the way it says “PS Plus for Vita” and not “Playstation Plus for Vita” too?
Seriously though this is a great update, thanks guys. PS All Stars Battle Royale for €49.99 for PS3 and Vita? That is excellent value right there. ^_^

JordanBlack68 21 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   46

How come the call of duty season pass is £41.99 when I got told it would be £34.99 from GAME as they were selling vouchers for £35 to cover the cost of the season pass? There is no way I can get an extra £6 as I’m only using vouchers.

When will the suit and gun pack be out for Hitman Absolution? Dont want to buy them seperately!

AsmodeanBT 21 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   48

Still not buying **** till you remove the SingStar malware and stop using my -ing PS3 as your personal spam board.

AL3MERH_2011 21 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   49

Hi Jawad
Why these game will not come to the PSN Saudi Lego Lord Of The Rings(ps3/ps vita)?

spagetti69 21 November, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   50

Sounds great.

Would be nice if Resisdenr evil 2 was vita compatible.
Original Xcom even.

Ask you again next week.

Thanks.
