PlayStation Store update: Batman Arkham Origins, God of War Ascension, more

First up this week, Batman: Arkham Origins, prequel to the great Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Play as Batman in the earlier days of his crime fighting escapades. Gotham City is crawling with villains to take down and crimes to solve. Then there are assassins to look out for…

Please note the exclusive Knightfall DLC pre-order pack has been slightly delayed but will be available shortly. As a thank you for your patience the good folks at Warner Bros. will also be giving pre-order customers the Deathstroke DLC pack as part of your original purchase.

Once you’re done with Arkham: Origins why not pick up Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate on PS Vita, where you’ll get to find out more about The Dark Knight’s past.

There’s a whole host of other great games out this week, including Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut, a digital release for God of War: Ascension, Ethan: Meteor Hunter, Magrunner: Dark Pulse and tons more.

And if you’re looking for savings we’ve got you covered. As well as our ongoing Halloween sale, you can also pick up top-drawer sports sim International Snooker at a discounted price of just £3.09/€4.02, down from £9.99/€12.99.

Awesome update. Getting both Batman games.

On an unrelated note, there’s a few issues with the Vita store which I’ve been bringing up every week. First of all there’s Sly Cooper Thieves in Time which is listed twice in a row. Second, games like Hotline Miami and LEGO Legends of Chima only show up via search. Third there are PSP games like Elminage Original and Sweet Fuse listed under Vita games.

 

Nice update. Still no ps4 preorders like the US store? It’d be cool to see. Also, I’ve still not received a Ratchet: Gladiator code – how do I sort this out? Many thanks :-).

 
johnnyquicknives 23 October, 2013 @ 3:05 pm   3

Any word on when PS4 preorders will go up?
And are they likely to be priced reasonably, in the US they are currently available for $50 ($60 with a $10 rebate) which is a great deal. It will be absolutely ridiculous if they are put up in the UK for £60.

Cyberendpunk 23 October, 2013 @ 3:05 pm   4

You got anything on PS1 and PS2 :\ Month after month I see nothing whereas NA gets Primal, Legend of Dragoon, Fatal Frame Trilogy, Capcom Vs SNK 2001 etc.

 

Hi what’s happening with DOA 5 ultimate sexy bundle or is it not available on ps3!!

    Jawad Ashraf 23 October, 2013 @ 4:15 pm    

    Haven’t got a date but they’ve been rolling out bit by bit, so possibly in the coming weeks.

Is the Valhalla Knights demo a mistake? No sign of it on the store

 
supersmith2500 23 October, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   7

Why is the three Vita games in the PSVita demos section when two of the games don’t even have a trial version. Please check for mistakes before publishing the blog entry next time. Just some advice. And Plus, Remember Me, MGR: Rising, Stranger’s Wrath and MotorStorm are free for Plus.

 

OMAIGAWD! Jawad! You changed your Avatar :’(

 

Hi

I’ve had Batman on pre order for a while and it said the auto download date was 21/10/13 but it still hasn’t downloaded.

Was this changed? If so why were we not told? The money has already been taken.

Thanks

 
SabreSephiroth 23 October, 2013 @ 3:08 pm   10

People are still waiting on the Ratchet: Gladiator codes being sent out.

Fred, last week, suggested logging into the forums and that a code would be sent via PM within 24 hours. A few of us here tried this but no code has arrived.

The original email which did contain the code for a download of MotorStorm RC stated the Ratchet code would be emailed.

Just wondering what is going on with this?

 
night_sign 23 October, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   11

Defiance price drop?

 
FatalExpert 23 October, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   12

Hiya Jawad,

Is there no DLC update option on the Deus Ex Human Revolution DC content? you have to straight rebuy the whole thing?

That’s shocking if so…other platforms can buy the DC content as an update (for less than £5 I believe) and the devs also went on record as saying there not trying to fleece gamers or were their comments only targeted at a specific platform.

Also any word on the Rob Pearson dynamic themes?

 

Pretty expencive psvita demos yes, and the vita artbook was released last week, anyway, is not wrc4 expected for vita this friday aswell?

 
Chronixal 23 October, 2013 @ 3:13 pm   14

The Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Ultimate Sexy DLC Bundle item is still missing. Given this is now 6+ weeks overdue, this is very disappointing.

 
INS1GHTFUL 23 October, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   15

cool, when is the batman and VK3 demo going to be up?

also Dark Souls 2 beta!!! Awesome. Youve made my day! :-)

 
Nightmare966 23 October, 2013 @ 3:15 pm   16

Hi Jawad. Besides the obligatory Batman pre-load question, let me see if I’ve understood the DLC thingie right:

On Friday, we’ll be able to grab the Deathstroke DLC for free from PlayStation Store itself (since there’s no item on the download list for it, unless you tell us otherwise! :P), then the Knightfall DLC will be coming a bit later, correct? :)

Also, great Store update for me. Besides the obligatory Plus content (RULES OF NATURE!), I’ll gladly grab the LBP DLC and the Free Kasumi outfit for DOA5:U.

About that last one… Any chance you guys can please link the Upgrade key (the one with 2.5GB) to the Core Fighters Add-Ons or something? It’s not tied to anything else and it doesn’t come up on a search nor the in-game Store.

Thanks in advance Jawad :)

 
VitalogyPJ 23 October, 2013 @ 3:15 pm   17

The Nightmare Before Christmas Costume Pack
Prices: £4.79/€5.99

US is being able to buy individual costumes for $1,99 each, will we be able to get individual too?

FIFTY QUID…. for god of war??
its only £20 BRAND NEW in the shops….
OK, sony has officially lost the plot when it comes to pricing the store!

 
Carnivius_Prime 23 October, 2013 @ 3:16 pm   19

Hm, nothing for me. That’s fine though. I got a play next week so I don’t need to be wasting time with games when I’m meant to be rehearsing and set building. :P

 

Isn’t the deathstroke dlc already part of the pre orders. So what are we actually getting for the knightfall delay?

 
bourbonkid2585 23 October, 2013 @ 3:17 pm   21

Any idea on when we are getting How to survive? Thanks dude

 
supersmith2500 23 October, 2013 @ 3:17 pm   22

@INS1GHTFUL:
Friday for UK and VK3 dosen’t have a demo, don’t get confused by the errors on this post.

Still no Ultimate sexy bundle for DOA5U…

How many weeks we have to wait? Isn’t 7 weeks enough already? Whats wrong? Are you actually doing something about this? When is it going to drop? How many months we have to wait? Of course we cant expect any kind of discount of it, do we? If bundle even arrives…

I guess this post will be ignored like the rest of those who is asking about same thing. Give us answers!

 
supersmith2500 23 October, 2013 @ 3:19 pm   24

@mJ_mSv:
Not demos, just in the wrong section, you can’t get charged just for a demo version.

 
Skookie30 23 October, 2013 @ 3:19 pm   25

Aww No where the castlevania:lord of shadows Mirror of fate HD konami said this week.

Let me guess SCEE screw it up again is this going to happen when ps4 comes out hope not. New console, old crap region.

Looking forward to it now dashed :(

Wait… it says its £29.99 here…. but in store it is £49.99, hence my confusion :(

 
Silent_Gig 23 October, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   27

A little annoying that most of the stuff i want isnt out until friday – but im looking forward to buying Guided Fate Paradox

 
Skookie30 23 October, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   28

* @jawad you forgot the plus drop of 4 games for plus members :)

It looks like your prices are wrong again. On the store and on the blog.

GOW A – Blog £29.99 / Store £49.99

 
Nightmare966 23 October, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   30

@adumr82: It wasn’t part of the PSN pre-order for some reason, so that’s what we’re getting.

(Also, the delay seems to be for everyone, with a code or from the Store pre-order).

 

Is there any reason or excuse why breakquest never came to AU

 
Skookie30 23 October, 2013 @ 3:24 pm   32

* correction can you confirm castlevania:lord of shadows mirror of fate out this Friday is that true disregard my last rant above.

 

Well, let’s try again…

1) I have a problem with the Resistance 3 DLC. If visit its store page from the PS3, i can only see the two buyable addons: Brutality and Survival. However, there’s supposed to be a bundle with the old content for the Special Edition, released for free: it includes a new weapon, two skins, among other things. I can’t download them. There’s no button to press. Could you please look at the issue? European store of course, the stuff is available in the US store, again for free, but i need it for the EU version.

2) I bought “Saints Row 2 Ultimate Edition” when it was on sale. However, there are no game updates for this game, even if they’re required for the DLC and i got a popup message in the game about that. So, what happened to the game update? I’ve tried reporting to the devs but they told me only Sony could help me. Meh.

3) Is Castlevania Mirror of Fate HD going to be released digitally next week?

 

@supersmith2500 I know ofcourse, just tried a bit Irony :D

Hi,
I haven’t received a code for the Ratchet Gladiator download. I bought Q-Force day 1, played (and got the platinum trophy) soon after, and also got the code for Motocross back when that was distributed, but still no Gladiator code. :(
Who is best to contact about this?
Thanks,
Sawbucks

    Jawad Ashraf 23 October, 2013 @ 4:33 pm    

    Everyone entitled would have received it by now. If you have not received it and think you did, please get in touch with consumer services and they will be able to confirm entitlement.

>>>Availability: Not available in Russia

2 words – … you SCEE.

Way to punish loyal customers who decided to be honest when registering account. Should have created UK account as my main.

 

Hi Jawad, how did you get that Terra avatar from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep? :)

 
Serpantino 23 October, 2013 @ 3:34 pm   39

My Vita still freezes regularly when going into the store and trying to download something. It comes up preparing to download and hangs necessitating a hard reset to fix.

This issue has been present and fairly common for a long time now. When is it going to be fixed? Have Sony even acknowledged that it’s an issue?

 
OnionMarmalade 23 October, 2013 @ 3:42 pm   40

Hey can someone clarify something for me, the Dark Souls 2 Beta, is obviously open to everyone with ps+? No code required?

Also ill only be able to start playing on Sunday? For how long?

 

Cheers nightmare966 pay more for less seems about right. So how is it delayed? Its only skins, and they’ve already been shown in game. And is the worldwide or SCEE being junk?

 
ElfMageBex 23 October, 2013 @ 3:45 pm   42

batman season pass isnt in the store?

danielc655 23 October, 2013 @ 3:48 pm   43

Just to point out for anyone buying resident evil 4 and/or Code Veronica X

they are charging 9.59 each but if you search for Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code Veronica X Bundle you can get them both for 15.99

 
Lord_Gremlin 23 October, 2013 @ 3:49 pm   44

I see Xseed Games releases are just as available as Corpse Party Book of Shadows, Sumioni and Orgarythm were.
What happened this time? Same deal again? Or this time something different?
@vik26061993 Yeah. As I grow better at speaking Japanese I’m starting to think registering a Russian account and spending loads of money on it was a mistake. Especially since Vita is locked to 1 account (utter disaster). Recently only stuff that I’m not interested in is released in Russia. Granted I’m not complaining when I have to import things like Senran Kagura SV, Gal*Gun and the likes, but recently it just got utterly unacceptable.
It’s also down to stuff like RAR, which turns out SCEE just flat out don’t explain to the publishers.

 

I would like to enquire again about the DOA5U Ultimate Sexy bundle pack and why we still don’t have it…

No price on the PS+ discounted Alien Breed titles.
And the PS Vita demo section has some pretty pricey “demos”.

 

Is MotorStorm RC available in the Instant Game Collection? The only “free” thing i can see it’s the TRIAL. The only other “full” game is the Complete Edition, which is obviously not in the collection.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 October, 2013 @ 5:09 pm    

    Clicking “Try Demo” should actually add it into your basket. Admitedly that is strang

 
Bovrillor 23 October, 2013 @ 3:55 pm   48

What is up with Deus Ex Directors Cut at £20?

Other formats got that content as DLC for under £5 – since all it does is fix the broken boss fights there’s no way I’m re-buying the whole game and the DLC I already purchased. Sort it out SCEE.

 

I’m still waiting for my Ratchet Gladiator code.. I signed in to the UK forum like you said i should, i am still waiting for my code. Customer service ain’t helping me at all on this problem

 
Bovrillor 23 October, 2013 @ 3:57 pm   50

@33 I have a similiar problem with Killzone 3. SCEE won’t fix it, nor will the developers. They’ll just ‘pass the buck’ until you give up, it’s their way.

 
Lord_Gremlin 23 October, 2013 @ 3:58 pm   51

@Clisp And I’d like to inquire why none of DOA5 Ultimate related content is available in Russia.

 
Flugsvampen_97 23 October, 2013 @ 4:02 pm   52

No demo for Batman this time like with the other two games? Too bad… :(

 
DarkArchoNx66 23 October, 2013 @ 4:04 pm   53

I wanna play God of war Ascension, but the price isn’t quite what I would have expected. You can buy it online for only 12 pounds which is more than just half price. I would have though (hope for the near future) by now that the sale prices would be more reasonable with the impending arrival of Ps4. Still that doesn’t seem to be the case, which in all honesty I understand.

 

Growlanser on sale. Awesome!

 
RyanSufc1997 23 October, 2013 @ 4:10 pm   55

Hi, Would It be possible to ask someone who can try to get Croc And Croc 2 (PSOne) on Vita? I absolutely LOVED Croc!

 
Finka_Karfein 23 October, 2013 @ 4:13 pm   56

Nah, not this week.

We need Yakuza digital releases, missing Yakuza localizations and Chrono Cross import!

CoolRichy007UK 23 October, 2013 @ 4:24 pm   57

Carnivius_Prime GAMES AINT TIME WASTING boring plays are i rather shoot myself then watch a play (all replys to this are ignored)

 

“Knighttfall is delayed, but Warner will let you have the Deathstroke DLC for free if you pre-ordered”

Don’t mean to be a d**k here, but the Deathstroke DLC was free if you pre-ordered anyway. I know, because I pre-ordered and will have it for free.

So they’re compensating by giving you nothing. Unless this pack is now available for EVERYBODY, regardless of pre-order, in which case you need to correct it and despite not gaining anything personally, I’m happy to see Warner do something to appease some of the games fan base.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 October, 2013 @ 4:44 pm    

    If you pre-ordered at Retail, then yeah, you got Deathstroke. Not on PS Store, however. So it is indeed a bonus for our pre-order customers.

“Hi what’s happening with DOA 5 ultimate sexy bundle or is it not available on ps3!!

Posted on 23 October, 2013 at 4:15 pm by Jawad Ashraf

Are you serious with this? Why you couldnt release bundle last week when whole set got finally released besides being late over a month already? Sure we can handle those few more extra weeks and we like to be screwed over and over again.

Why you cant add those bundles now? Even Tecmo Koei EU contacted to you last week because of this, at least thats what they claimed on Twitter LAST week. Coming weeks… come on, you can do better than that… :(

 

Jawad, I noticed that in the Dutch/Flemish version of the Belgian PSN Store Stealth Inc. A Clone in The Dark isn’t free anymore for Plus members. I’m guessing something went wrong when you added the game to the cross buy sale ?

Could you please look into this issue ?

Great update by the way ! :)

 

Head’s Up. The Plus content refreshed today too.

Metal Gear Rising is coming in at 19gb (Download) and Remember Me is 6GB (Again download)

Oddworld Strangers Wrath and Motorstorm RC are your VIta offerings and because Motorstorm is cross play you get that for the PS3 too. :D

 
SwingerE11 23 October, 2013 @ 4:39 pm   62

Hi, there’s a dlc in my download list that I don’t remember buying and it’s £15.
It’s street fighter x Tekken additional character pack (12 chars)
I checked my transaction history but it’s not there, can you find out if I paid for this or if I got this for free

    Jawad Ashraf 23 October, 2013 @ 4:45 pm    

    It is a free pack that will unlock the 12 characters for the PS3 version of the game. Nothing to worry about :)

Omegastoopreme 23 October, 2013 @ 4:40 pm   63

Seriously £50 for Batman????? its like 35-40 EVERYWHERE ELSE.

The digital version prices are crazy why on earth would anyone intentionally pay £10-15 more that they have to for a disc version when it will take half a day to download and use up god knows on your hard disk?

Get with the program Sony the prices are so inconsistent, stuff in sales is priced way below stores (yes please!) but new releases are so much dearer that no one would go near them with a cattleprod.

Is whoever works out the pricing intentionally sniffing something funky?

 
Bovrillor 23 October, 2013 @ 4:41 pm   64

@61 You need to phone customer service. You won’t find any help here. Be prepared to wait up to a fortnight for a response.

 
Nightmare966 23 October, 2013 @ 4:49 pm   65

@61: Did you get the SFxTK Vita version from Plus? If yes, that’s why it’s there ;)

 

@Jawad

So ordering from you, as a pre-order, meant you had to pay more than anywhere else. Had no second hand trade options after you bought, and also didn’t get the pre-order bonuses?

You have to admit that is lame. I’m glad that Warner have fixed that for people, but that’s terrible service in the first case that your customers were given such a rough deal, when they could have gotten a physical copy with DLC for £30 (if they pre-ordered before October, Amazon dropped the price for one week locked it for anyone in pre-order status)

 

@Jawad Any ETA on Meruru for VITA in Russia?
And why the hell is even VK 3 not available here? That doesn’t make any sense, XSEED never had any problems releasing games in Russia.

MaikelSteneker 23 October, 2013 @ 4:51 pm   68

Is there any chance we’ll get a similar deal for Deus Ex: Human Revolution as Steam users get? I bought the game on disc for PS3 and then rebought it on PSN together with its DLC. I’m really not prepared to drop another 30 euros to get the new boss fights and commentary. But if I can do that for 5 euros it would be something else entirely.

No problem

@67 – unlikely. Publishers have suddenly figured out they can sell the same game to console owners several times by adding exclusive DLC. The new Xcom ‘expansion’ is doing the exact same thing.

I’d urge people to vote with their wallets, otherwise it’ll stick – just like the DLC model did.

 

Hi Jawad, any news on Terraria for Vita? Would very much appreciate anything on this!

 

Already preordered Blackgate can’t wait until Friday!
Also thanks for posting the Dark Souls 2 beta times, I thought it was 8pm to 10pm like last time so would have missed those sweet 3 hours!

 

When I add it to the basket, Metal Gear Rising decides it wants to be £39.99. It’s free on the storefront. Any idea what’s going on here?

 
Bovrillor 23 October, 2013 @ 5:02 pm   74

@72 SpAM_CAN – this is common during store updates. Try again later, it’ll be fixed. DON’T click on ‘purchase’, it WILL charge you.

 

@Jawad

When will Valhalla Knights-3 be available in Croatia (and bunch of others European countries like Germany, Hungary, Russia, etc.)?

 

@Jawad: thanks for the info about MoF. What’s the price? Will it get a little discount for Plus members?

 
Shadowdragoon 23 October, 2013 @ 5:17 pm   77

Any new information on Cross Region Gifting.

News one DLC/games Like Disgaea 3 (Vita) here in Scandinavia?

Following titles getting on the SEN store?
Final Fantasy Crisis Core
Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleap
PoPoLoCrois
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Thrillville

Will Proteus be out next week? Please say yes O_O

 
tired-hippo 23 October, 2013 @ 5:20 pm   79

Will proteus be out next week? please say yes!

 

Anyone on the fence about Valhalla Rising 3 Vita, I imported it and am really enjoying it!
It’s a slow start and is grind/loot focused so if you like that you should be good. Oh and you also get sexy time with elf halflings… really!

 
Nightmare966 23 October, 2013 @ 5:26 pm   81

@Lance_87: I’m obviously not Jawad, but you should take a look at this…!

https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/cid=EP0101-NPEB01441_00-CMOFPURCHASE1234

BTW, those of you waiting for the Killzone: Mercenary digital book, check the Store… :D

 
ShadowDoGGG 23 October, 2013 @ 5:27 pm   82

Downloading 30+GB at 21Megabits is such a pain.. I really hope the ps4 can at least handle 50Mb. Steam and Origin offer full 100Mb for my connection.

 

Alas, Jawad, all who were entitled have definitely not gotten their codes yet (I for one purchased the game, played online and even got the platinum before the cut-off date and I received the Motorstorm RC code without any issues months ago). We have been constantly given instructions to sign on in the forums to get a new code, but none have been sent (some have of course received theirs from this already or from earlier, but definitely not “all”).

I have absolutely no plans to phone for support (I’ve refused to do this before such as when you offered recompensation for Beyond Good & Evil’s price and I will refuse to do so in the future as well), but I may consider the support email option later if no code still shows up.

Luckily though, I have a whole lot of great games to play while I wait, so I’m not in immediate rush to get the code, but I don’t speak for everyone ;)

 
Lord_Gremlin 23 October, 2013 @ 5:40 pm   84

@novurdim I second the question about Atelier Meruru in Russia. Supposedly Jawad made an inquiry about this one a while ago AND supposedly it’s because Tecmo did not put a Russian age rating on it (which is self-issued by publisher, unlike PEGI or ESRB which both require money, time and effort). Seriously good question because Totori plus was and is available, we paid good money for it and now this game is dead because save import is impossible into any asian card version we can buy here in Russia.
Also, Xseed always had problems because they have no members on staff who can write product descriptions in anything but English. Corpse Party BoS, Sumioni, Orgarythm all had delays in Russia because of that.
And finally, Jawad, please, start answering questions by Russian customers. Not necessarily mine. Thing is, you ignore all of them. This is evident in every blog post. Let’s just say you build up a lot of negativity among Russian community.

 
Carnivius_Prime 23 October, 2013 @ 5:40 pm   85

@80 21? I only get about 5 but it still doesn’t bother me that much. Plenty other things to do while things are downloading.

 
YOKOZUNA_MK 23 October, 2013 @ 5:55 pm   86

Sorry, delete my comment

 
YOKOZUNA_MK 23 October, 2013 @ 6:04 pm   87

Excuse me, please. It wrote my stupid friend.

Shou_Kobayashi 23 October, 2013 @ 6:31 pm   88

So, it was said that God of War 3, was to big to be released on PSN, but you can release Ascension, which is 34.8 GB?

So, what is your excuse, now?

 
CreditDue 23 October, 2013 @ 6:41 pm   89

Where is Deus Ex Directors Cut preorder and Batman Origins season pass? Thanks

 

So as I’m downloading Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance I wonder if there’s any chance in a near future for a sale of DLCs to this game?

 

What about wrc 4 for the vita?

 
Voodoo341 23 October, 2013 @ 7:45 pm   92

£50 for Batman… disgusting!

 
EZIO_AUDITORE281 23 October, 2013 @ 9:18 pm   93

Is there news on when How To Survive releases? I thought it was meant to release today.

 
awkward_ghost 23 October, 2013 @ 9:40 pm   94

Hi,

Remember Me is not appearing as Free (on Plus) for me. Well, actually it does appear as Free (for Plus) when browsing the store… But when I add it to my basket it says it costs £19.99.

Any idea what’s going on?

 
bushlemon 23 October, 2013 @ 10:23 pm   95

Is Beyond ever going to be available digitally?

 

The store won’t let me download Motorstorm RC just shows me trial version then asks me to pay for it. Any ideas?

Does anyone know if you can still use the street fighter x tekken character dlc when your ps+ expires ?

 
TehPunizher 24 October, 2013 @ 12:03 am   98

until when is Alien Breed Triology staying a PS Plus Discount?

 

Hey.guess who’s back

 
Shabadenaya 24 October, 2013 @ 12:22 am   100

@lemmichi:If the dlc is in your history you should be able to use it the actual game is what you can’t use if I can recall correctly

 
Mougurijin 24 October, 2013 @ 3:23 am   101

Today is the 1st anniversary of Guilty Gear XX AC Plus getting onto XBLA for UK, Japan, USA, etc.

Next week, Nov 1st is the 1st anniversary of this game reaching PSN, but only for Japan.

A month after this is the 1st anniversary for USA only (for PSN)…

WHEN IS IT COMING OUT FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD ON PSN?… WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR LONGER THAN XBOX?! >_<

 
TheMoDiiFii3r29 24 October, 2013 @ 6:55 am   102

will Valhalla Knights 3 be released in Australia?
plzzzzzz

Shou_Kobayashi 24 October, 2013 @ 9:58 am   103

So really, feeling lied to.

You said God of War 3 was too big to be released on PSN and than you release Ascension digitally.

So can we expect GoW 3 to follow? Feels really odd to make excuses about filesizes and go this route ._.;

Shou_Kobayashi 24 October, 2013 @ 10:25 am   104

Also Shin Megami Tensei: Persona delisted from Germany?

Shou_Kobayashi 24 October, 2013 @ 10:30 am   105

My bad, never released …

RepanMike 24 October, 2013 @ 12:33 pm   106

The new Star Wars Pinball pack is wrongly priced in the swedish store. It’s €8.99 but 90 skr. That is way off..

Ygdrasille 24 October, 2013 @ 12:59 pm   107

@ Jawad Ashraf Ok, seriously why are some Japanese publishers (namely Tecmo Koei, NIS, Xseed etc) are clearly ignoring Russian consumers?? Any reasonable explanation to that????

MoS_Elendacil 24 October, 2013 @ 1:16 pm   108

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate DLCs are so messed up. Please, can we have the ‘Ultimate Sexy’ bundle pack already? Other regions have had it for like seven weeks now, and we have only the single costumes from _last_ week, and those were over a month late, too. It can’t be that difficult. I won’t even try suggesting a discount, for having made people wait for no apparent reason. Just release the pack, that’d be enough.

It really isn’t good customer service to have people wait for months without any decent reason. People who are paying customers, I might add. It’s not like we’re getting those things for free.

 
ProtectCommunity 24 October, 2013 @ 1:16 pm   109

Hi,I am from Bulgaria and can’t see the new Batman game,neither as a demo or as a chance to pre-order..Why is that,or will the demo be released on the 25?

 
TehPunizher 24 October, 2013 @ 1:32 pm   110

Jakub0701 24 October, 2013 @ 1:46 pm   111

Is Guacamelee or Resistance Burning Skies come to PS+?

 
AmorousBadger1 24 October, 2013 @ 4:48 pm   112

Fifty quid for the Batman game? blimey, Amazon are knocking out PHYSICAL copies for thirty.

 
Daft-Eng 24 October, 2013 @ 5:52 pm   113

No Idea where to ask this, but anyone know If Carnage Heart EXA can be transferred to the Vita via PS3?
It’s not on the Vita store sadly…

 
PapaSharpe 24 October, 2013 @ 7:31 pm   114

Been waiting for Carnage Heart myself. Can I get it through the PS3 store only?

 
supersmith2500 24 October, 2013 @ 10:51 pm   115

*sigh* Didn’t have the time to correct the mistakes? Please do it next time Jawad before publish the blog entry so people won’t get confused.

 
supersmith2500 24 October, 2013 @ 10:54 pm   116

@Jakub0701:
Drinkbox Studios said their game is on November’s IGC and on the Plus website but SCEE didn’t announced it that was coming to IGC. Drinkbox is aware of this and is getting in touch with Sony.

 
BBear_27 25 October, 2013 @ 3:30 am   117

Where is wrc 4 for the vita?

So, i’s ther or i’s ther not a DEMO for BATMAN ARKHAM ORIGINS BLACKGATE?

 
Nightmare966 25 October, 2013 @ 11:48 am   119

@Jawad/Fred: I purchased Batman on the Store and I’m not able to get it for Free. Do we need to get it from the game itself or something? Or is it supposed to be working and there’s an issue?

Thanks :)

 
Nightmare966 25 October, 2013 @ 11:49 am   120

About my last message, I meant the Deathstroke DLC, sorry for the double post >_<

 
Nightmare966 25 October, 2013 @ 3:11 pm   121

So, not in the in-game Store neither. Looks like the Store doesn’t recognize the game buyers as owners to the DLC. I guess I won’t be able to get my hands on him yet, oh well… :(

 
stormyuk 25 October, 2013 @ 3:22 pm   122

Any update on the Guacamelee situation Sony?
