KaneTheGoth 2 April, 2014 @ 3:00 pm   1

Guys what’s going on? A week later and the price for Saints Row 3 – Full package STILL isn’t right! I’ve asked on here about it pretty much every day. Don’t you want me to have lots of carnage/drstruction/fun? :(

Nazar_Ops 2 April, 2014 @ 3:04 pm   2

Pretty ‘meh’ store update.

 
lbrowsky 2 April, 2014 @ 3:08 pm   3

No sales this week seems odd and disappointing. Was hoping for the Ubisoft deal NA got. Glad with IGC update though. Will grab Killzone DLC too.

    Jawad Ashraf 2 April, 2014 @ 3:21 pm    

    Just the WWE 2K14 this week, yeah. There’s another promotion soon, though :D

 
mellan_Konsten 2 April, 2014 @ 3:09 pm   4

Finally Beyond on the store! :)

 
WearingFin 2 April, 2014 @ 3:09 pm   5

Will this update also rectify some of the issues from last week? As well as Kane’s example above there was also missing Toukiden DLC and the Curve bundle was not reduced in price, I think that’s it but I’m sure someone will chime in on anything else.

    Jawad Ashraf 2 April, 2014 @ 3:25 pm    

    Toukiden DLC had a small issue that’s currently still being worked out. Hopefully it’ll be ready for next week’s publish.

    Sadly the Curve Studios bundle change has been cancelled :(

 

Was there not supposed to be a God of War sale this week? Or will this be a separate update.

 
XDerKleineX 2 April, 2014 @ 3:10 pm   7

Now that the Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition is out the price of €39,99 for the original on Vita looks even more ridiculous than it was in the first place. Any chance of it at least being lowered to match the price of the Deluxe Edition?

 

£54.99 for the digital version of Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legend Complete on PS4…LOL. I actually pre-ordered physical for £42.99 and I got it this morning.

 
mellan_Konsten 2 April, 2014 @ 3:11 pm   9

I still want to know if it is possible for us nordic people to get sly (Vita) in english (and not in Swedish)?

 
Hell-Raiser-85 2 April, 2014 @ 3:12 pm   10

Toukiden DLC from last week is not on store whats going on?

Ares_tm 2 April, 2014 @ 3:12 pm   11

Why the US Store get more discounts on PS3 Games and DLCs?

For example Metal Gear Rising.
Is there a chance, that we get a discount on the DLCs of Metal Gear Rising. The whole World got it free, but we can still pay 20 € for it.

 
PandaBerserker 2 April, 2014 @ 3:13 pm   12

Any word on if we’re getting SMT Raidou Kuzunoha like America got this week? Been actually wanting the game for awhile now but its stupidly expensive to buy a physical copy.

 
XDerKleineX 2 April, 2014 @ 3:14 pm   13

@Ares_tm I don’t have a PS3, but if the MGR DLC still costs 20€ Sony’s doing something seriously wrong. You can buy the entire game with all the DLC for that price on steam.

 
CurtisUKC 2 April, 2014 @ 3:16 pm   14

Hotline Miami is an instant classic, slightly addicted and the eclectic soundtrack is phenomenal. I just finally got thief for the PS4 but can’t tear myself away from this game.

Everybody should at least try Sly Cooper I didn’t think it would be my style but I bought it a about a year ago, had major fun with that game, the characters and diverse levels really shine.

As for the PS4, now rapidly becoming a bitter place of broken dreams, Mercenary Kings: It’s funny there’s a trophy for rescuing kickstarter backer hostages. Maybe they should be left well alone so we don’t have to see more soulless games like this bad excuse.

Lermontka 2 April, 2014 @ 3:17 pm   15

Pirates of the Caribbean PS2 Classics??? Really? I would like to buy ps3 version. Maybe. But this? US has Devil Summoners in ps2 classics, and EU – Pirates of the Caribbean…

 
CShasuki 2 April, 2014 @ 3:17 pm   16

Nothing of interest for me this week.

 
Voodoo341 2 April, 2014 @ 3:20 pm   17

£55 for a Dynasty Wars game! April Fools right? Absolutely criminal.

 
stikky1 2 April, 2014 @ 3:20 pm   18

So no Dynasty warriors 8 complete edition for the ps3? Why not?

paul-p1988 2 April, 2014 @ 3:20 pm   19

Any chance that the Toukiden DLC from last week will be on the store this week then?

 
KaneTheGoth 2 April, 2014 @ 3:22 pm   20

Jawad, thanks for the link but it’s still missing the Plus discount :’(

 
smilefaceCZ 2 April, 2014 @ 3:22 pm   21

Another weak update for Vita.Is There any info about Duke Nukem Vita? Also Batman Arkjam Origins Blackgate for Vita needs desperately discount becase of cheaper deluxe edition.

 

Any news on Strike Suit Zero?

tiago_c 2 April, 2014 @ 3:23 pm   23

So… i guess Guilty Gear Accent Core is never gonna be released on Europe, dont understand why’s taking sooooo long.

And we get so meh avatares every week? US and JPN gets all the good stuff.

 
Bumblebee 2 April, 2014 @ 3:24 pm   24

Wow, iFruit for Vita. Now there’s good timing… finished playing GTA months ago, but thanks eh?

Any chance that Batman Arkham Blah Blah Blackgate will get a price reduction on Vita to reflect the PS3 price? It seems crazy that it’s more than DOUBLE the price on Vita!

 
PIREDERAS 2 April, 2014 @ 3:24 pm   25

I hoped to see a new sale, the last few ones didn’t suit me.

I am surprised to see Beyond: Two Souls being added to the Store. Could we see Heavy Rain on the Store someday, too?

 

Any news on Botzone for Killzone Mercenary on the Vita, and Walking Dead Season 2?

    Jawad Ashraf 2 April, 2014 @ 3:33 pm    

    Botzone is due some time this month. TWD should also be quite soon :)

fmykdisbad 2 April, 2014 @ 3:29 pm   28

Wondering what size Beyond two souls is, and nice we in europe get a pretty good price for that MLB Game :)

Looking forward to more sales too, i do not buy anything in the store at normal price anymore, so you can just give us 24/7 sales anyways :D your own fault :D :D :D :D nobody buys full price anymore hahaha :D

fmykdisbad 2 April, 2014 @ 3:30 pm   29

nobody buys at full price anymore, give us more sales!

 
croze343 2 April, 2014 @ 3:30 pm   30

Jesus! What is with the price disparity between dynasty warriors on all three platforms? PS3 $50 Vita $55 and PS4 $85 are you guys trying to push physical media and keep users trading in and buying used games ? You have only priced the ps3 one reasonably.

fmykdisbad 2 April, 2014 @ 3:30 pm   31

How long is the PS Plus discount on FEZ for? Does it end today??

 
GalapagosaraY 2 April, 2014 @ 3:38 pm   35

@Jawad Ashraf

Related to the “Blockbuster Deals”

Why does “Benedict Arnold DLC” for Assassins Creed 3 not have a discount for PS+ users, is this a bug/error? Its a 1 hour older DLC for the game but its the only one without a discount, whiel the newer DLC episodes all have discount like the “Tyranny of Washington” Could you guys atleast see if the game can be made for a reasonable discount aswell as i think its way too much for 1 hour content at its current price since its the oldest dlc for the game.

Assassins Creed 3 season pass is sold at a discount but not all of the DLC is sold at a reduction price individually, could you give some clarification about the “Benedict Arnold DLC” for the game ? Is this included in the “Season Pass” of the game? i have the standard “Classic Edition” of AC3 on my PS3 but i really want all the singleplayer content to be included before i start playing the game.

    Jawad Ashraf 2 April, 2014 @ 4:06 pm    

    It isn’t part of the Season Pass, unfortunately. Certain retail copies of the game will have had a code for it, however.

 

I just started a PS Plus yesterday for a year & i got it for £34.99(off Amazon) & with yesterdays PS Plus free stuff & todays PS Plus free stuff i feel like i have robbed SONY & got away with LOADS of bargains & sort of free stuff! ! ! :D Thank you SONY ;)

 

@Jawad: Toukiden DLC has a small issue, yet it takes over a week to fix a small issue? And why did SCEE decide to not discount the GH songs, like Sony did for the rest of the world and MS/Nintendo worldwide. You always say its up to the publishers and Activision already stated its up to SCEE to put the discounts live.

fmykdisbad 2 April, 2014 @ 3:45 pm   38

@Carl-G enjoy the RENTED games from plus, these will never be your games and you will pay for all eternity even if you just want to play your old games for 5 minutes.

 
Porcupeth00 2 April, 2014 @ 3:46 pm   39

I know this is a bit off topic but any change the Tomb Raider PS4 sale will repeat around easter’s time or so? Missed it by 1-2 hours because of pre-paid cards >>

fmykdisbad 2 April, 2014 @ 3:47 pm   40

Beyond Two Souls if anyone is wondering is 30 GB.

Must be the biggest game yet in the psn store for ps3? Need 60 GB free i guess…

 
cosmic_uk 2 April, 2014 @ 3:52 pm   41

Nice to see BEYOND (Beyond!!) on digital. Hopefully it’ll be on IGC sometime.

 

@Jawad: Could you also pass on to Chris his Deal of the Week pricing is wrong. Its only 1 game and yet he manages to put up the wrong “old” price in pounds and the wrong “discount” price in pounds, as the store tells different prices. Try harder improving please or get some capable people.

 
GametimeUK 2 April, 2014 @ 3:56 pm   43

When is Counter Strike go coming out in Europe?

 
EddyBrockJr 2 April, 2014 @ 3:56 pm   44

No Metal Gear Rising skins? *sadface*

 

@ Stikky1

There is no Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete edition on the PS3 because the PS3 already had a release of Dynasty Warriors 8 (back in summer of 2013). So it’s simply Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends a standalone expansion like nearly all Dynasty Warriors releases. I bet sometime next year there will be a Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires as well.

The complete edition on PS4 is Dynasty Warriors 8 + Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends (hint that’s why its called complete on PS4). The same applies to vita as prior to this Dynasty Warriors 8 was not released on either vita or PS4.

 

Having bought King Oddball for Vita, will I get it free for PS4?

 
Pandadosmares 2 April, 2014 @ 4:05 pm   47

No Ragnarok Odyssey ACE?

 
The_Last_Ninja 2 April, 2014 @ 4:05 pm   48

EU did not get the WWE2K14 DLC sales ?
Why Thief on PS4 was 29 $ in PSN US and it s still full price in PSN EU ?

 
Fr34kyUK 2 April, 2014 @ 4:07 pm   49

Nothing worth having for either PS3 or PS4, will continue to play warframe lol

Tuulenpoika 2 April, 2014 @ 4:07 pm   50

*insert another plea in vain for making the PSP library in PSN more equal with the US one, at least for the first party titles*

Also, another PSP Power Sale would be great to have.
