PlayStation Store Update – 25 June 2009

Hey all, and welcome to this week’s store update. I just wanted to firstly acknowledge that there was quite a bit of disappointment with last week’s update; whilst we do try and ensure we have great content every week sometimes there will be a lull in the release schedule, so all I ask is that you please be patient with us when we do have quieter weeks.

Onto this week and a mix of content that should feature something for everyone. There’s reason to celebrate Super Stardust‘s 2nd year anniversary for those of you who have yet to download the game, for one week only you can download the game for a really low price! Puzzle game Zuma is now available, and for those of you with an addictive personality this one will keep you coming back again and again. There’s also something ‘beardy’ for LBP users too, amongst other things ;)

Finally, I also have some good news for our French users; Final Fantasy VII will be available to you this week! Get ready to lose many hours of your life to this classic time consuming RPG.

No Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for download?


last guy and blast factor trophy patch?



I keep asking the question, and until I’m given a specific date I can’t say for sure I’m afraid. They are coming though.

solid_sammy 25 June, 2009 @ 16:50

Final Fantasy VII ? Very good new ! I’m happy to see it in our french store.


Good update…

Happy birthday Super Stardust!!!



Blast Factor patch plz.

Leaving it late so you can leg it out of the office? ;-)

Hope you don’t get as many ranting nutters as last week.


As if…I’ll be around for a while yet, my flame-proof full body suit at the ready as always :)

fictionJunction 25 June, 2009 @ 16:53

FFVII available? That’s great news ^^ But I still don’t see it on the store :p (be patient, patient, patient, patient…)


That it? So we have another rubbish update.

FascistBullyBoy 25 June, 2009 @ 16:54


Can we have a demos category on the store?
If not is there a particular reason why not?

i thought the first fallout dlc was coming out late june


As reported on the internet (various sites) today, no new date has been confirmed as yet.


*cough* lame *cough* :P seriously whats going on with MGS 1


3 questions :)

Where did Silent Hill go ? Will it be back ?

When will Resident Evil DC be available ?

When will MGS be available ?


No Fallout 3 DLC? :(

Oh well, atleast there’s the reduced SSHD price… I hope the store will soon pick up it’s pace with releasing more content.

matt-corleone 25 June, 2009 @ 16:56

Where is Ghostbusters Demo ????

2 Weeks and not Demo :(

TheSabreman 25 June, 2009 @ 16:56

“whilst we do try and ensure we have great content every week sometimes there will be a lull in the release schedule”

I think that people accept a lull but get disappointed when content is available in other regions weeks or months earlier yet with no sign of it in EU.


Appreciated and a good point. However, as explained by myself every week in the comments section, we always aim for global releases for Sony content, but for 3rd party publishers it is their decision when to release content I’m afraid. It’s a shame these discrepancies happen certainly.

Were is the Fallout 3 DLC? I thought this was supposed to happen LAST week? :/

Ravenblade86 25 June, 2009 @ 16:57

Personally I’m going to be just alittle disappointed every week until the WipEout HD and Motorstorm PR add-ons hit, but this week is decent. Anyone that doesn’t have Super Stardust HD so be downloading that game straight away though at that price!

By the way, could we get the file sizes listed for the store updates please?

Not bad. Especially for the 5 people who don’t already own SSHD :) Super Stardust HD is an awesome game. I played it a lot when it first came out. I hope the devs (House Marque) release some new content for it sometime (or even better, a sequel!)

Where’s our Ghostbusters demo?


Another pretty poor update imo, however the Stardust HD is pretty tempting apart from 1 thing, as stated this is a pretty poor update meaning there is nothing to buy apart from Stardust HD, any chance of sony removing the limit of a minimum 5 pound spend?, i mean the only thing i want to buy today is 1.59, seems kinda stupid to have to put on 5 pounds just to buy it.


matt-corleone : yes but for US, I guess, as always, we’re tha last to have demos, games (MGS ???)… Poor, poor EU PSN.

Downloading Super Stardust now, pretty good deal.

Nothing special. To bad!

Amherst_Wind_4 25 June, 2009 @ 16:59

There are plenty of US PSone Classics that could be released to avoid a lull. Are there actually any PSone games on the horizon for us?


Any word of the Shivering Isles expansion for Oblivion and the Fallout 3 DLC too?


Do you have any idea it Metal Gear Solid will be avaliable, ever?

Please reply.

It’s just tough living in Europe.



:( No MGS1

Pretty rubbish update tbh. Nothin worth buying at all.

The playstation store layout is very good for the most part but would you please consider putting at least image previews for all games you sell on the store?

The description is normally not enough and not all games have a trailer to demonstrate what the game is about.


woot another week feeling insignificant because we STILL don’t have MGS how hard can it be, you managed to get FF VII to Europe in 2 days why has it taken so long for MGS(i hope your flame proof suit is up to the job there will be a lot of unhappy people)


As said already today (and every week since MGS was released on the US store) it is down to the publisher to decide when to release the game onto the EU stores I’m afraid.

I’d love to be able to deliver good news regarding this title, but until I am given any information, you’ll all have to direct your queries regarding MGS to Konami, sorry.

FascistBullyBoy 25 June, 2009 @ 17:02


Maybe you didn’t see my question?

Can we have a demos category on the store please?
If not, is there a specific reason why?


I’ve seen your question, but because I don’t have an answer to give you I’ll have to leave it at that.

RadioactiveMouse 25 June, 2009 @ 17:03

Typical that the day I have to send my PS3 off for it’s 1st repair the LBP costume comes out for a one week only slot :O

Oh well theres plenty of content likely to come out in the following weeks :)

Not a great update, but, better than last weeks for sure. There’s still a lack of PSone games every week though.

It wouldn’t be that hard to get the Abe’s series on there would it?


Agreed, why no demo section?

*predicts no answer, or very vague one*

mikeyboy888 25 June, 2009 @ 17:04

last week i had a choice,

wait for bomberman to come to Europe or go against the T&C and get it from usa store

clever me

cheap great game, i hope no one complains this week. (unless they already got it while back, if so LOL@U… jk) keep the good stuff rolling, thanks.

me + ps3 = woot :P


well another rubbish update
considering bought Stardust 2 years ago , and Zuma 4 months ago when was released on the US store


Oné positive thing: It’s a better update than the last update! :P


@Mike Kebby
As you can see, I am from the US base on my flag. Since the Jeff and Chris do not seem to respond to this “issue” we used would like to be commented on, I was hoping you may be able too.
Is is possible for you guys to release some new avatars on the PSN for us to used as your profile avatar/pic?
Can you please respond to my post please?


Let me ask for you and see what the score is on that front, unlikely that I will be able to post anything about it directly (as I don’t deal with them directly) but I’ll see if we can get some information posted on the blog by the relevant people for you ;)

ghosthunter68 25 June, 2009 @ 17:06

No Call of Juarez demo. Frustrating as I wanted to try befor I buy :(

I thought Motorstorm 2 tracks and FallOut DLC were coming by the end of the month. Any news.


Frankly the John Burgerman collab makes me realise why LBP is awesome all over agian.
I really really dont care about when an old playstation game is released, I’d much rather see more of the awesome creative new stuff please!

Keep up the good work! :)


FF7! At last!!!


Ow and the price cut is great!!!
But I already have the game :P

yo mike

whats up with the EU not getting MGS this week. Are we ever gunna get it

and bomerman aswell




When can we expect the original Metal Gear Solid to be released on the European PlayStation® Store for PS3/PSP? I did expect to see it’s release today, any statement on a release date? :)

Aside of that it’s quite a minor update, but well, my Credit Card won’t mind that ;) There’s enough content which I am still looking after for a future purchase…


Thanks For FF VII !

Can we expect for FF VIII and others Psone JRPG? Even if it did not ever out in Europe (FF tactics or Xenogears?)?
And why Silent Hill disappeared in the French Playstation Store?

Firstly a small request. Can you please change the store so that when your scrolling through the thumbnails that you only have to press right on the stick to get to the start of the next line like on the singstar store.

It’s frustrating for me anyway that i have to press down then hold left to get to the start of the line to view things in order.

Also isn’t Monster Hunter Freedom Unite supposed to be on the store this week as the UMD gets released tomorrow. On the capcom boards it’s generally assumed that it’d be up on the store.

D_Killa_Kat_96_ 25 June, 2009 @ 17:09

I cant believe this!
No Fallout 3 DLC!
So sad now… :'[
Maybe next week?
Can’t wait any longer!


FFVII will be available today or tomorrow ? (because you tell “This week” :p)

Thanks for you answer


It’s on your store now, today, this very second ;)

It’s in the Latest and PSone Classics sections.


I say again

Thats the only game i want, i knwo SCEE has taken it under its wing. I want it so bad =_=
