PlayStation Store update: Hotline Miami, Borderlands 2 DLC out today

Leading the way this week is extraordinary old-school shoot ‘em up, Hotline Miami, releasing for both PS3 and PS Vita. It’s a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine.

Fans of the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ should look forward to Deadpool on Friday for PS3. Featuring the titular character himself with various other Marvel drop-ins and fourth-wall breaking humour our man in red is known for, Deadpool is your go-to fix this month for comic book gaming.

See below for the rest of this week’s new releases.

If Hotline Miami is Cross-buy, why is it showing as 2 completley different prices for PS3 and Vita?

    Jawad Ashraf 26 June, 2013 @ 3:09 pm    

    Woops! Fear not, the lower price is the correct one for both. I’ll get it fixed.

 
MASPALOMAZ 26 June, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   2

Thanks for the update. So hotline miami is 1€ cheaper when we buy it for vita :D

and Ride to Hell seems to have the wrong price? i thought it was $30 in US:)

Will there be a ps3 game sale incoming soon? ty :)

 
silent_strike95 26 June, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   3

Dropped the “Heads Up” now then? Good to see!

Pretty nice update this week.

 
Dr-abdulelah 26 June, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   4

thank you

 

Amped to try Hotline Miami…. heard only good things :)

Did i Miss it? or was there no blog post on the new Soul Sacrafice stuff this time round?

 
hdgfjsdgg 26 June, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   6

But none of it is up yet for me :/

 
Chungles 26 June, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   7

Any news on a Muramasa release date over here?

    Jawad Ashraf 26 June, 2013 @ 3:20 pm    

    Would love to see it here but I don’t have any info to pass on today. Sorry.

 
CRASHBASHUK 26 June, 2013 @ 3:08 pm   8

where the content? its normally on the store when I check at 1PM
is there a problem?

 
LordBeloved 26 June, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   9

Hi Jawad,

Do you have any information whether we will be receiving Muramasa’s Rebirth for Vita in Europe any time soon?

Can’t wait to play, what seems to be, a triple A title!

 
GametimeUK 26 June, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   10

Birthday update for me (well, it was yesterday… cheers for the maintenance haha).
Anyway, when will we be seeing Counter Strike? It has been around 10 months and still no news.

 
MaxDiehard 26 June, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   11

@Dr-abdulelah

You need to go to:

Account Management/Account Information/Notification Preferences.

Make sure the boxes are ticked if you want emails sent.

Falcon1991 26 June, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   12

Why do game developers/publishers/whoever, insist on having digital Day 1 releases cost MORE than in retail.

It is frustrating beyond belief. I haven’t bought 1 digital retail game.

I’d rather get it off Zavvi/Amazon/Ebay.

 
seanoc1 26 June, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   13

Will Muramasa Rebirth be making it’s way over to EU or will I have to import it? Same for Dragon’s Crown out in August in the US.

 
PiccoroDaimaoh 26 June, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   14

Spartacus Legends?
YouTube App in Portugal?
Muramasa Rebirth?

*sigh*… Why do I even bother…

 
CreditDue 26 June, 2013 @ 3:11 pm   15

why is not possible for the EU store to receive the same avatars as the NA store? Laziness? regional licence issues or whatever?

 

I wish we’d see those 20% Plus discounts at release more regularly. But it seems they are gone as much as those monthly avatars or full game test versions.

Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep is great (so far). Played it on Steam last evening. Finally a (second) DLC for BL2 that was worth it.

 
D3L1NQU3NT 26 June, 2013 @ 3:12 pm   17

Any news on Spartacus Legends UK release date? The US got it this week.

    Jawad Ashraf 26 June, 2013 @ 3:27 pm    

    I imagine in just a few weeks at most, but nothing I can confirm at the moment.

 
patacama 26 June, 2013 @ 3:12 pm   18

Hi Jawad,
Do you have any info on when Storm (the game) will be released? Any answer is appreciated.

Thanks.

Falcon1991 26 June, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   19

@17 I absolutely agree.

In cases like Marvel VS Capcom 3 it is due to lots of different licensing stuff.

But I have NO idea why we can’t get AC3, several Street Fighter game avatars and more.

 
Regisek 26 June, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   20

Why store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com is not updated with the latest content?

PencilShank 26 June, 2013 @ 3:16 pm   21

The Grid 2 DLC says:
Free Super Modified Car (£3.99/€4.99)
Super Modified Pack (Free)

How is it free if its £3.99?

 
Marky264 26 June, 2013 @ 3:16 pm   22

Hey Jaward,

The GRID 2 Modified Car Pack Info seems a little confusing…

GRID 2

Free Super Modified Car (£3.99/€4.99)
Super Modified Pack (Free)

So Is this Pack Free then or are there 2 Versions of the Pack?

 
Laraman 26 June, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   23

I was hoping for Spartacus today but I guess not. I might pick up Dare To Fly though :).

 

Deadpool for how much? It’s £20 cheaper retail

So will we be getting Dynasty Warriors 8 avatars? Game avatars instead of poor graphic design avatars seemingly made by a 12 year old who thinks toilet humour is cool. PLEASE add game avatars PLEASE

Also Toro Friend Network? Ratchet Gladiator?

 
dirtyCAT79 26 June, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   25

Muramasa for EU?
No worries. If there is no news this week i’m going to import from playasia. Its a shame as i’d rather give my money to the EU store.

 
PAUL_UK-77 26 June, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   26

Deadpool (available from Friday 28th June)
Price: £49.99

lol its only £30 in stores . these digital prices are way to much

and the uk store aint even updated yet

 
supersmith2500 26 June, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   27

@seanoc1, Chungles and LordBeloved:
Muramasa Rebirth is handled by a US publisher which is Aksys Games. And the bad news is, they do not have a EU office, unless the developer can find a EU publisher, you’ll know but for now, I’m afraid you’ll have to import. =\

@Regisek:
Give it a few hours, it will be updated soon.

 
Laraman 26 June, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   28

@21 and 22

The Free Super Modified Car should be (Free) and the Super Modified Pack is (£3.99/€4.99). Unless they’ve obviously royally messed up :p.

LordOfThePies80 26 June, 2013 @ 3:23 pm   29

Spartacus Legends… Storm… Just a couple of recent example from a ridiculously large list of games that have arrived in one region long before another.
Other companies providing a similar service are not affected by this issue, so why are SONY?
And will this frankly amateurish practice continue with the PS4?

 
ryannumber3gamer 26 June, 2013 @ 3:25 pm   30

I got some questions.

1.any chance of PaRappa the Rapper 1 & 2 coming to PS1 & 2 classics?
2.any updates on the connection problems for AR Treasures on Sly Cooper Thieves in Time?

    Jawad Ashraf 26 June, 2013 @ 3:30 pm    

    I can only answer no.1 with a non-answer, sadly. That is it’s not very likely, at least not anytime soon.

 
infernalmonkey1 26 June, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   31

It’s weeks like this where you should probably list all the PlayStation Mobile games to pad out the paper-thin Vita section. :P

Also, Muramasa Rebirth is not going to be released in Europe anytime soon guys. Importing is your only option.

Highwind12 26 June, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   32

Come on guys, why is the new Borderlands 2 DLC not out in Netherlands yet ???

 
antikewl 26 June, 2013 @ 3:27 pm   33

Disappointing pricing on Deadpool (I thought we were over that!), but insta-purch on Hotline Miami, despite already owning it on PC/Mac. :)

repo1012 26 June, 2013 @ 3:28 pm   34

why do we still not have any news on ratchet gladiator hd???? its been like 5 weeks :(

GRID 2

Free Super Modified Car (£3.99/€4.99)
Super Modified Pack (Free)

so the free car has a price? does not make sence?

 
litterature 26 June, 2013 @ 3:28 pm   36

Any info for Ratchet and Clank gladiator release ?

 
craig12girvan 26 June, 2013 @ 3:29 pm   37

Any update on ratchet gladiator release in eu/uk?

fungame20 26 June, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   38

oh come on! are there any ps1 and 2s like suikoden or grandia 2 coming?

 
ThugETH 26 June, 2013 @ 3:31 pm   39

I bought Murasama Rebirth special edition from amazon UK yesterday. There are still a few sets left.
Got HotlineMiami at noon today and been playing all afternoon. It’s quite a tough game!

PHEEliNUX 26 June, 2013 @ 3:31 pm   40

I entered the store, Nothing updated yet, When it will be updated?

 
Marky264 26 June, 2013 @ 3:32 pm   41

Found out the Info about the GRID 2 Packs on the Codies Forum…

The (Free) Modified Car Pack is the Honda Civic 5Zigen Edition so must be a Spell Entry Error by Jawad. For Example a Taster Car like they do with Forza Car Packs.

The Modified Car Pack which is £3.99 Includes 4 Cars (Including the Free Civic)

AaronSOLDIER 26 June, 2013 @ 3:36 pm   42

Nothing for me.

Hoping for a sale on LBP2 Extras Edition soon.

 
muzzar69 26 June, 2013 @ 3:36 pm   43

Is there any ETA on when R&C Gladiator/ Deadlocked will be available?
It was announced last September for a “end of the year” release! 9 months later and we actually have less information about the game than the day it was announced!
Also, any updates on Oddworld new n tasty? So cant wait to play that, still play the original every single day on my way to work. One of the, if not the, best game ever made!

O, and on the topic of PS1 classics on sale now is there any chance of getting the Loony Tunes games on the PSN store? Really dying to play sheep raider and bugs and taz time busters again, and its murder trying to track down a working copy of these games!
Apocalypse would be nice too, such a awesome game.

Also any ETA on when the SP DLC for TLOU will be available? Absolutely loved the game to death so sad its ended, it cant end I’m not ready to leave it yet!
:(

 

Hello Jawad. Will Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 ever be released as a PS2 classic?

 
hayzink 26 June, 2013 @ 3:41 pm   45

Had no idea sparticus came out in USA yesterday, downloading on my USA account now.

It’s free just get it off USA store guys, unless u plan to spend money buying gold for it

 
hdgfjsdgg 26 June, 2013 @ 3:44 pm   46

i need borderlands tiny tina, but its not there. come on guys why is it taking so long :(

Sogeman 26 June, 2013 @ 3:45 pm   47

You already take forever to post a simple list of content so you the store at least be ready by the time the list is up?

snow_hawk_88 26 June, 2013 @ 3:46 pm   48

Are we going to get the South Park avatars anytime soon?

 
Nightmare966 26 June, 2013 @ 3:47 pm   49

Hi Jawad. Just trying to bring to your attention that some of the later LBP Karting costumes can’t be accessed if you bought the LBP2/Vita versions. Noticing the Street Fighter whole set and Marvel Pack 6 whole set (if you check the file sizes between versions you’ll notice as well). Also, Sly & Bentley’s pack Karting unlock key is missing.

On another hand, I’ve got a question: I purchased Sly: Thieves in Time on the Store for PS3, and got the EU1 file (ENG/SPA/POR/FRA) for Vita. I’m seeing people noticing that if you got the Disc release and used Disc Benefits, you got more languages. While the Store recognizes it’s purchased and I can download the file from the Store front and all, I was wondering if it’s intended to just give me 1 Vita file instead of multiple.

Any help regarding those is appreciated :)

    Jawad Ashraf 26 June, 2013 @ 3:51 pm    

    Thanks for pointing this out. Regarding your second paragraph, that’s the way the products are packaged (set up). It should give you the option to pick the language you need (or sometimes give a default).

funnydude6556 26 June, 2013 @ 3:48 pm   50

For a moment there I thought Irrational had made the first DLC Pack, now I feel sad.
