‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (19th November 2009)

Okay, I’m not going to beat around the bush, I think we’ve got a cracking line-up this week…and if you all moan at me this week, you will have crushed my last bit of faith in humanity:)

For PS3 users you can get hold of Critter Crunch (trial and unlock) and Invincible Tiger, as well as the demo for Smash Cars, there are two packs available for Dragon Age: Origins (that’s my weekend gone then) and a host of other content too.

Oh, did I mention a certain Snake makes an appearance this week too…we finally have the PSone classic Metal Gear Solid available!

Also, I think you PSP owners will be feeling some love this week with titles available such as LittleBigPlanet, Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, The Warriors and plenty more. There are also two further minis on the store this week, Echoes and Pinball Dreams; for the full list of this week’s content have a scroll down.

There will also be a couple of titles made available this coming Tuesday (24th of November)…I was going to be mean and keep you waiting but I wouldn’t do that to you all :). Therefore on Tuesday you’ll be able to get hold of Gravity Crash (both the full game and a trial & unlock) and for LittleBigPlanet an Assasssin’s Creed costume will be available too.

Leave comments as usual, but please keep in mind that I don’t work on the Video Download Service, so I won’t be supplying answers about that…

Have a good week!

JESUS! thats a fair bit of content this week! nice to see Mana Khemia was kinda miffed when it didnt show up last week.

btw.. critter crunch is a fiver? bargin!

YaYYYY i heard about metal gear solid other day well done can you try get resi 2 now thats it then + 5star rating this thnx mike

It is starting to shape up! Keep this up for coming weeks as well. This is what it’s supposed to look like every week!

3.1

I wish it could look like this every week!!

Nice update! Grats and hopefull with MGS on there you might get a one week reprieve!

5

Great update – and a mini one on Tuesday, bonus!

6

great stuff overall is the little big planet costume of assassins creed on psp or ps3 version??

Mike rummages in his cupboards and finds…

Gold :D

Any news on the LBP Deathclaw costume? ;)

7.1

Oh that would be a great costume wouldn’t it ;)

When is Military madness: Nectaris coming! I want that game…

2 questions for you Mike…

1. Why isn’t MGS available in NZ?

and

2. Any news on Final Fantasy 8 at the moment?

Otherwise, Great update :)

9.1

Konami didn’t submit it for release there I’m afraid.

No news on FFVIII just yet.

10

More PS1 classics please :)

woo metal gear solid.

Ahh quite a lot. But i have to wonder; How many actually buy the premium themes?

Great update guys! I’m so happy that finally we have a release date for Gravity Crash!

14

Super happy with all the stuff happening today re: this content, the video store, new firmware etc – I just wanted to ask one thing:

I’m absolutely itching to play Silent Hill 2 again (Paranormal Activity got me in the mood for real scares), any chance of that coming to the store?

Woohoo! Will be buying The Lost Frontier for sure, and maybe Arctic Edge after trying the demo. And will be buying Gravity Crash next week, too… quite possibly both PS3 and PSP versions.

Looking forward to Gravity Crash. I’ll just trial it until Pixel Junk Shooter comes out then choose. Any idea when this is released? Nice one Michael!

Great update. TONS of PSP content I want.

Metal Gear?!

Sorry, I had to.

YESSSSSSSSSSS mike did konami finally give in 2 your harassment lol. after weeks of waiting their is finally stuff i want to buy:D. Everyone should give mike a week with no moaning this week as its well deserved. it may not of been all down to you mike but am gunna thank u the most anyway, well in m8 :D

Well I guess I have to crush your faith in humanity, but where the hell is the ultimate alliance DLC? The Vicarious Visions moderator has posted on the games official forums saying they sent the content way in advance of the 12th of November release date, so there shouldn’t be any real excuse. Not your fault personally, but the PSN EU guys are useless at times.

20.1

Next week Mallery, it’ll be on the store next week.

Hi Mike,

Good to see Critter Crunch at the price i was hoping for.

Couple of questions that i hope you are able to shed some light on:

1) Is there a reason that the Store no longer receives trailers (be it Cinema releases and Blu Ray)? Seeing as Sony champion the format, and being a film company, I thought they would have advertised things like this more???

2) I realise that we don’t always get PS1 classics the same time, if at all ,as the US do (citing localization issues), but I read on the US blog the other week that they received Tekken 6 wallpapers. Surely, wallpapers don’t need localizing do they?!?

Cheerz

almighty-slayer 19 November, 2009 @ 12:29
22

Too late i spent all my money on the vidstore i’m afraid.

I was wanting LBP too!

A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

From this update, I shall be mostly buying:

Disgaea (very nice price by the way)
Critter Crunch (ditto)
Gravity Crash (but why Tuesday?)
MGS

All over my face.

23.1

Tuesday is to match the US release date…we had lots of discussions on the release date, and this was decided to keep everyone happy ;)

24

METAL GEAR SOLID!!! thanks! :D

Cool Boarders 2 (How hard can it be, its a 1st party game)
All Tomb Raiders released on PSone

Hey Mike, great update…question though. Any idea on a time or approximate time when the store will be updated with the new content?

Great update. Thanks Mike!

“It only does everything”

YEP IT NOW DOES.

great update, thanks mikey.

29

Getting MGS, i’m glad it’s finally coming. Let’s hope to see some more classics, Tomb Raider 1, 2, 3 & 4 would be great.

Williams Pinball Classics!!

Mike, you beauty. I’ve been waiting ages for this.

Thanks. :D :D :D

Wooww great update! Gravity Crash seems to be awesome, but until 24th November it won’t be on Playstation Store?? why??

Mike any chance of ringing capcom up to see if they can release resident evil 2? or E-mail em or even text em ^.^

Wow, Metal Gear, Disgaea, Darkstalkers, Capcom Puzzle AND Movies, this is how it should be, need to get a 32gb card now!

Excellent update Mike

34

Really good list this week My bank balance will be looking a little thin. I may need to pick up another memory stick for my pspgo as well.

Only one question. Do you know if F1 2009 for PSP will be on the store any time soon? I think it’s released on UMD tomorrow.

I recommend checking out Critter Crunch – one of the best games on PSN in my opinion.

Great to see Metal Gear Solid up there, I still have the original discs so I won’t need it.
It was a really needed seeing how long it had been up on the US Store, good to see it eventually was coming.

I’ll be picking up the Sgt. Pepper’s album anyway, good to see that wasn’t delayed like Abbey Road last time, Sgt. Pepper’s FTW!

37

YAY! TB:RB DLC on the expected date! :)

Mike, any news on the RB Track Pack pricing. Yeah, I am a stuck record ;)

37.1

Hooray indeed ;)

It’s been a convoluted process, but we’re getting there – not sure on an ETA just yet though.

“* Metal Gear Solid (£7.99/€9.99) Rating: PEGI 18+

Availability: Not available in New Zealand”

What? Why not New Zealand? The way I see it there is absolutely no reason why it shouldn’t be available in New Zealand, especially when it’s available in Australia! Any explanation on this one, or at least a date when it will be available?

38.1

I don’t know, it’s up to Konami, it could be they didn’t get a rating finalised, or legal issues, or licensing issues – there’s a myriad of potential reasons why not – I couldn’t say to be honest…

Epic update, keep them coming!

TheKillerSnowman 19 November, 2009 @ 12:33

THE UPDATS ARE LOL THIS WEEK TOO :( WHEN DOES THE AVATARS COMING ???????????????

40.1

Always one isn’t there!?

Avatars are coming, you’ll know when I have something to confirm.

Dutch PSN store is currently riddled with language errors, some of them:

Pain FatPrincess icon on the main page says “gratuit” instead of “gratis”
Pain Schnell-Oocher Paket is listed fully in German
Racket & Clank Waffen Trailer is listed fully in German
Final Fantasy 7’s description is listed in Spanish or Portuguese

so mike once again any news on ff8? not a bad update this week just nothing for me as mgs1 was mine a few months ago. hopefully the us store update will have ff8 :(

Nice nice nice. Cheers Mike. :) I managed to find a copy of MGS from a local boot sale but the second disc wasn’t in it. Dude just gave me the game for free, said I may as well play through half of it (“Why would I want half a freakin’ game?” was my response, oh well). So I’m glad I can download that now and get my game on.

If nothing else, I’m buying it as a protest vote to get more real PS1 classics on there. If third parties can see that these things sell, they’re probably more likely to put more stuff on there quick-sharp. :P

As someone said, more weeks should be like this. I’m sure there’s stuff from your ol’ archives that you can dig up and offer when there’s a slow week (like a good ol’ SCEE-published PS1 classic or two), so I hope to see more packed weekly updates. =)

Nice one on the continuing special offers too. I’m usually very wary against spending over a tenner on certain games over digital download, but the PSP EA Replay has caught my eye for a while and I wasn’t prepa...

I’m usually very wary against spending over a tenner on certain games over digital download, but the PSP EA Replay has caught my eye for a while and I wasn’t prepared to splash £16 on it. At £12, I’m thinking now may be the time. Road Rash on the go, awesome.

43.1

Road Rash on portable is VERY good fun ;)

Finally MGS! :D Awesome update this week.

Good update.

Is Vagrant Story next week?

capitancogorzas 19 November, 2009 @ 12:36

woohoo, I’ll have to get some more PSN cards.

Assassin’s Creed PSP looks fantastic, though IGN says it doesn’t play that way (still, what do they know?!).

I’ve been waiting for Gravity Crash for ages, so really happy to see that’s out on Tuesday.

Mike are we missing Ad Hoc Party?

Nice, plus we also get the Video Store content today do we not!

With the Video Store, will the UK be seeing TV episodes any time soon? I’m assuming this might take some time due to all of the copyright/distribution holders in Europe though…

“a surveillance camera?!”

I knew MGS was coming soon, but when I saw it on the list I almost didn’t believe it! It brought a tear to my eye.

I bought it originally from launch, but stupidly sold it when I bought Twin Snakes (good game, but no comparison to the original), so I’m really looking forward to replaying this! Thanks Mike, you have made my day.

Wow lots of stuff

Think i might yoink assassins creed on the psp depending on in store price

hey mike hows AC2?

Your also a swine for having it early :(

54.1

AC2 is great fun – I liked the first one, but LOVE this game ;) It’s stopping me from playing MW2 multiplayer, and I haven’t even started Dragon Age yet because of it.

well at least i’ll have something to look forward to on tuesday because not much there for me today :-(

Nice one Metal Gear Solid!!!!! Love you SCEE even tho you have ”kept us waitin” :P

57

Just noticed, no standard Rock Band tracks?
Also, any news on Braid since SCEA released it last week?

57.1

The normal Rock Band tracks resume normal service from next week.

Braid is coming, just don’t have a confirmed date just yet.

58

Oh good lord…this is quite the update for PSP Owners huh?

Little Big Planet is a day one purchase, along with MGS [FINALLY!!!] but now i’m in a rough spot deciding whether to get AC:Bloodlines or Jak & Daxter, along with Disgaea and Megaman :(

Mike, Thanks for letting us know about the costume coming out next Tuesday :)

Any news about Vagrant Story, Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops/Ops + and Dissidia?

Critter Crunch is great stuff

I just wanted to say, great Store update, PS3 system update, PSP system update and of course the Video Store. Awesome PS day.
Very Happy about MGS and that I now have my iplayer Icon back along with FB, the improved photo display, much better friends list with colours and so on…I’m dl V for Vendetta now. Whatta day.

Cheers Mike

61

SSSNNNNAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKEEEEEEE!!!!! Finallly, I’m soooo happy!!! thanks Mike and Konami!!!

Wheres the home stuff??? are we gonna get any thing decent EVER Again???

62.1

I don’t deal with Home, couldn’t tell you I’m afraid.

63

Finally Critter Crunch, and for a great price. Thanks Sony.

Hiya Kebster,

Real nice update.

I can really recommand Critter Crunch. For that price it’s a steal.

Great update, I guess there is still hope for this store after all!

Nothin for me except MGS, which alone makes this update best in months! Thanks SCEE!

D_Killa_Kat_96_ 19 November, 2009 @ 12:43

Yay! MGS1!
Something to do while i’m still sick!
Any news on new avatars???

PrivateJoker360 19 November, 2009 @ 12:44

I could have swore I read somewhere there was a demo for Mushroom Wars being released today???

Am I mistaken?

Awesome update btw :-)

68.1

Yeah that one fell through the cracks unfortunately, it’ll be out next week if all is well :)

Excellent PSP update. Disappointing to see Oz miss out on Mana Khemia, but I’m all over Metal Gear Solid, Disgaea, Little Big Planet, and Dark Stalkers. Well done, Sony.

70

great update this week…
Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

yyayayayayayayayayay :D

Where is the DJ Hero DLC that was meant to be on the UPDATE? Said 19th on the “in game shop”?

71.1

Nothing submitted to us for our store this week…so not sure.

Andy-McK-4ever 19 November, 2009 @ 12:47
72

Nice update Mike. won’t be downloading anything myself but I know MGS will make alot of people happy. Any word on the Uncharted 2 DLC?

The Disgaea pricing is superb. Great job Mike!

(Though if US gets FF8/Vagrant Story before us, you’ll be in pain next week ;))

74

finally, MGS! BTW, any news about Vagrant Story?

Mike wrote: “Next week Mallery, it’ll be on the store next week.”

Are you sure? Because if it isn’t my Girlfriend will beat me =p

Thanks for the quick reply. Will have my cash ready next thursday.

75.1

Well I’m not taking any responsiblity for your domestic abuse problems, but it’s tracking for next week yes ;)

Actually I read it on here!

Is it coming or not because you do not mention it in the heads up?

Good line up this week.

I was just in my account management and saw that theres and option to purchase premium avatars in the ps store..

When are they available?

78

What time will the store update Mike?

Dutch_Rootsman 19 November, 2009 @ 12:51

Great update! But where is Vagrant Story?

You said it would be “next(this) week too *wink*”

This is good, but it could have been perfect.

Thats awesome

can’t wait to get my white edition tomorrow

Argh getting exited thinking about it,i want it now!

80.1

I’ve only just really started touching the main story missions – but have been messing around trying to get random trophies nice and early. It’s a lot of fun ;)

81

Great update Mike.

Can’t wait to play MGS.

82

umm my comment is being moderated? for saying it’s an amazing update? lol..

Anyhow, what i wanted ask is that if there was any news on Dissidia or Vagrant Story.

Also, Mike, do you consider yourself a “hardcore” gamer?
Was just wondering :)

Releasing MGS? Now what are people supposed to complain about? Oh yeah, Symphony of the Night and Disgaea 3 trophies… I kiid I kiid, good to see Konami finally realizing that people in Europe don’t live in caves and communicate by barking.

That. Is. Awesome.
I don’t remember such a good update for the PSP (or PSN as a whole) ever. Maybe in quantity when the PSPGo came out, but not on quality and price.

Great games at great prices this time, it’s very good to see Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines with that price. Keep the trend!

And wow, Metal Gear, Disgaea, Demos… Congratulations, you’ve done a great job!

Slow clap to everyone involved, absolutely no reason to complain this week (unless you live in New Zealand, way to have the short straw! E-mail Konami now!)

wow, MGS given a PEGI 18+.

i dont recall that it was an 18 rated game when it was released on PS1

anyway, im looking forward to that.

“Not yet Snake! It’s not over yet!” You’ve still got sales in you yet!

Wicked update. MGS, Disgaea, LBP, Jak and Daxter and Assassin’s Creed! It’s like it’s already my birthday (3 days to go :))! Except I’ve got to pay for everything… :(

Awww, no Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 DLC costumes? The JP and US Stores already have ’em. If you can, please tell if there’s a time estimate for their European release.

87.1

Next week ;)

Stop teasing me! Lol

Only a day its only a day away

Also Quick Question mike any news on vagrant story?

89

O MY GOD MGS!!!! One of my favorite games))) Why Rock Band Beatles DLC not available in Russia? It’s ok with previous games,but Beatles officialy released here. Anyway,thanks for MGS)

Hey Mike,

great update :)
Do you know how much MB Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines will have?
It’s very important so I know wheter I can buy it in the store (fantastic price by the way :D)

Great update Mike, so much PSP Content i want if i had the money i could buy about 6 or so games easy! 7 if you include MGS lol

Dunno if you know or if you do you can say. But is Resident Evil Directors Cut on your radar for a release anytime this year? Would love to play that on the PSP Go.

Awesome, Critter Crunch and Gravity Crash.
Any news on when we’ll get Peggle?

93

Thanks for the great birthday prezzie Mike! ;)

93.1

Happy Birthday Scourgewood!!

I was hoping to see LEGO Indiana Jones 2 for PSP on the store as it is released tomorrow on UMD (apparently). Any news on this.

Dont mind so much though cos I shall be making sweet love to LittleBigPlanet and Assassins Creed. Might even get the Williams Pinball as I thoroughly enjoyed the Gotleib Pinball collection.

Stirling work Mike.

I LOVE MY PSP GO

94.1

I love your PSP Go too :P

Hey, Disgaea on the PSP! It’s almost impossible to buy it here in Poland! WOOHOO! :)

SWEET, I found the BBC iPlayer when I woke up this morning (replacement PS3). Not sure if it was there when I updated last night, but whoever’s behind fixing that, nice one^^
Also Mike, nice update this week, Disgaea for £12? that’s pretty sweet~

I want Military Madness: Nectaris!!

When is it coming here it’s out in Hong Kong store this week…

Great Woden’s Sword!
Quite an update there, lots of tasty content, not to mention the movies that are now live.
Excellent work, although once again the special offers are heavily biased towards the PSP owners, c’mon, you know you want to reduce Prince of Persia Classic! ;)

Oh and how’s the manflu Mike?

98.1

The manflu tried to have me beat, but I have a hardy constitution – I got rid of it thanks ;)

Boring Wost UPDATE ever mike YOUR sacked…………….tehehe :P

jking over its a very good update i cant not lie.

a question for you mike why is MGS1 A 18+ pegi? im sure it was a 15+ in the old rateing system,

& lastly will cod1 be back on store & when is vargret story a ps1 classic from square-enix :D

100

so does that mean today the dragon age dlc will finally be downloadable? i got the game yesterday and the dlc doesnt work yet.
i hope so, would suck if the free dlc that came with it doesnt work.
good update.
but i have something to ask ofcourse, wouldnt be normal if there was nothing to complain:), when does suikoden come to europe? (the ONLY ps1 classic that matters)

101

Great update Mike

But is F1 2009 on PSP coming to the store this week?

quick question: i still have all my ps1 favorite games, so i wonder if the version available at the store looks better on my HDTV than playing the original on black CD games.

thank you to anyone who answers!

103

Ah, here’s one for you Mike. You are going to make sure LBP gets onto the store right? The US have had some difficulties it seems…

103.1

Indeed we are getting it up today…I will fight to death to ensure this is the case!

mike . great update this is what i expect from a top brand like sony . even 1 classic ps1 game every few weeks would be better than non at all or kids 1s . critter crunch and mgs today defo , couple things m8 try push for other classics still like resi evils etc . any news abt new dynamic themes m8 especially south park 1 . thanks mike and again great update marked it 5 star (circles )lol

105

Excellent update this week im glad to see MGS is finally here. Any idea if could be getting FFIX in the future (since FFVII is already out and FFVIII is on the way?)

I just like to say… You’re a great guy Mike for going around and commenting on most of the comments… we rarely see that around here.. ;)

Cheers :D

106.1

Thanks aaljuma1 – I love my job, and more importantly talking to you all about the best hobby in the world…morris dancing, sorry, I mean gaming (wrong blog) :D

Lots of nice content this week :) I just hope ff8 will be here soon finished ff7 at 100% now need anew challenge.

Thanks for great info and a nice update :D

108

Mike, I think there may be a typo in the euro prices listed for “LittleBigPlanet” and “Jak and Daxter: The Last Frontier”.

108.1

Those prices are correct.

“Mana Khemia: Student Alliance” from last week’s update is still not available in the Finnish store. Care to look into it?

109.1

It’s released this week instead, it was meant to be removed from last wek’s post. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Mike,

Video store was announced for Ireland at Gamescon, yet it isn’t here. Any info?

WELSH_-_LEGEND 19 November, 2009 @ 13:06
111

any news on Hogs of War coming to PSN Mike?

Lt_Fed_Brusque 19 November, 2009 @ 13:07
112

BRAVO MIKE! Take a bow, Sir. You deserve it :D Best update ever!

112.1

There’s a lot more people involved than me, I can’t take all the glory ;) Glad you like the update though!

Nothing interesting this week…

No Mushroom Wars demo.
No Peggle.

Maybe next week will be better!

Nice update! :D

115

THANK-YOU Mike! Metal Gear Solid and Dragon Age.

why are my comments awaiting moderation

What did I do

Oh SNAP! Megaman Maverick Hunter X?! I think i love you :-D

Very nice update indeed! Been looking forward to Gracity Crash since E3 :D I’m also really tempted to get Jak and Daxter but I just ordered LBP from play.

With MGS releasing this week, does that mean we will start to see other PS1 classics that have yet to find their way onto the EU Store? (Spyro, Resident Evil wink-wink-nudge-nudge-say-no-more-say-no-more ;))

119

I wanted the costumes for NGS2 :”(
Oh well, still great update, thanks for the heads up Mike. ;)

Thank you so much for giving us this Heads up, its one thing we get and the US dont :)

im really thank full at least we know what to look forward too around 5pm

121

Really happy to see premium PSP titles like Jak and Littlebigplanet only costing £21.99

I’m hoping Sony have recognised the illogistics in charging £31.99 for a downloadable bit of software.

More games for us (:

Mike, can you please answer me? Please, really, I’m dying for this answer this week… Any news on Dissidia to the European PSN?…

Thanks :)

122.1

I have nothing to report on this at the moment I’m afraid.

What’s with the inconsistent pricing? The update’s awesome, but the prices pound/euro for jak&daxter/LBP are -very- off course. Assassin’s creed is GBP 23,99, which equals about € 27 or so – € 30 is doable, makes sense to round up a bit. But the cheaper j&d/lbp are GBP 21,99 (€ 25, give or take) but are priced UP to € 37? That’s about 50% more expensive – that’s not rounding up, that’s ripping off.

Pricing issues aside, the content on this week is awesome. Keep up the good work!

why is the Ezio costume not coming today?

theres not even a picture of it yet on Mm’s site or the new LBP site

125

Nice, looking good

Wow! Finally an update that makes me and my PSP Go happy. Thank you! Keep adding PSP titles, we need more older (non Sony) games.

127

sweet deals Mike, and finally Megaman Maverick Hunter X available, i have bought it twice on UMD but i want the digital version to eliminate the need of carrying the disks around :D

LittleBigPlanet (£21.99/€36.99) Rating: PEGI 7+
Availability: All locales
Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines (£23.99/€29.99) Rating: PEGI 16+
Availability: All locales
Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier (£21.99/€36.99) Rating: PEGI 12+

is there something wrong with the prices?

AC Bloodlines cost more in GBP and less in Euro :S

129

Thanks Mike! All I can say is that it was bloody great timing! ;)

Deffo getting LBP later. :)

130

Any news on F1 2009 or Lego Indy 2 for the PSP as they’re both out on UMD tomorrow? Were they not submitted or not ready in time…?

Thanks

131

TheAlp: Prolly a missprint.

2 Demo/Trials? o.0 Sounds good, i have not heard of either as such, but i’ll get both, cause who knows, might be awesome.

@ Mike, you’ve got nothing to report because there really are no news or because you can’t say?

By the way, will Tekken 6 be released next week? Or on the 24th (Tuesday) it will be available on the PSN store?

Thanks, that game most be awesome! :D

tokyodisco: “Really happy to see premium PSP titles like Jak and Littlebigplanet only costing £21.99

Seems like SCEE once again hate Euroland or think we’re richer than the rest of the world. Sony’s recent € 35+ pricing is ridiculous and unfair.

GuttermouthSIN 19 November, 2009 @ 13:19
135

W00t, MGS! Now all I need is for Capcom to hurry up and give us Resident Evil 1-3 and I’ll be in heaven. CAN YOU HEAR ME, CAPCOM?? Probably not…

even though the game i would like to see on there still isnt on there, i would like to say that i am happy with this weeks update

but please mike can you answer my question about if sims 2 will be on the store, il never ask again

136.1

I don’t know what the situation is about this titles, if I find out and I can say something I’ll let you know ;)

137

Any news on Braid us europeans?

138

Thought we were getting mushroom wars demo???

Excellent update Mike! Thank you very much, rated with 5 stars :-)
Finally MGS!! Hoorraay!

140

Fantastic update, thanks!

I have a question about the Video store: is there any chance that we can get subtitled movies?
I live in France and all movies on my local PS store are dubbed in French. This, for me, is an automatic “nothankyou”: I haven’t watched a dubbed movie in at least a decade, I’m not about to start again now.

It’s a shame, because I was really excited about the Video store, but until we get the option for the original language, I won’t be a customer.

So, is that something I can ever hope to see, or should I just write the Video Store off?

But again: thank you for the great update. I don’t want my gratitude to be overshadowed by my issues with the video offering.

140.1

I would direct these questions to the Video Service blog post hana_fubuki, I don’t work on the service myself so don’t know.

Awesome.

I’m getting Critter Crunch for my PS3 and Jak & Daxter for my PSP!

METAL… GEAR…. SOLID!?!?!?!?

I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!! AHHHHH!!

(You have no idea how long I’ve been checking this blog JUST for this news alone)

God bless you!

143

What’s going on? why are my comments awaiting moderation? i didnt type anything but praise for the update :(

144

Whens adhoc party coming?
Apprently the US one is coming today.

Mike, I think the new firmware has broken the ability for videos on the Blog to be shown when using the PS3 to access the Blog …Videos now come up blank with a red triangle and “This application is not supported” .. not sure if it can be fixed but its a pain if it cant, didn’t know who else to mention it to… PS keep up the good work with the Store updates

146

Will buy Gravity Crash on Tuesday and I think it will be the PSN Store game of 2009. I don’t mind waiting till Tuesday as global releases are best way forward and the fairest to all SCE regions.

I look forward to Team17’s excellent looking Alien Breed Evolution, PSN Store game of the year 2010 !

147

I thought Gravity Crash was a PSP game :( Just Sgt Pepper’s for me this week. I’m not complaining through, A packed update it truely is, just nothing else takes my fancy.

Mike, I know Braid is in the system but can you confirm Peggle + Nights is in for certification as well?

Thanks

Wow! Good update & Critter Crunch is a good price as well. Consider it sold :) Keep up the good work :)

Mike, do you know anything about Tekken 6 being on the PSN store the day it is released? Thanks

Critter Crunch is now available, finally! Also may get Metal Gear Solid too.

Excellent Update!

151

Thank you for a great update. I am especially happy to see real PSone classics starting to make it to EU!!!!!! and the great price on Critter Crunch- its nice to see publishers who believe in fair pricing and for a game with such a high metacritic review average. Very Happy, Thanks Mike
PS Dont forget about the fl0w trophy patch :)

Great update this week. Plenty of nice games that I’ll buy for the first time in quite a while actually.

But.

What’s up with the prices for PSP games? Certain titles (LBP/J&D) has been priced with current exchange rate plus 12 Euro extra on top. Why this extra profit margin for us who pays in Euro when it’s not existing for those paying in GPB?

how does all this praise make u feel mike lol . this would happen a lot if store gt more great stuff regularly so keep it up m8 .

154

Thanks a lot for the answer, Mike, I’ll do that right away.

ok take 3 =\

Any news on vagrant story mike?

i keep trying to ask but all my comments are awaiting moderation :@

Amherst_Wind_4 19 November, 2009 @ 13:38
156

What a top class update, just remember what today feels like next time we have a less than stellar update, just grab todays feeling and hold on to it Mike, hold on tight!

156.1

I shall have to do that you’re right ;)

157

Why do developers have to submit a game to every country individually? How can a game be fit for one country, but not for the other? Think of all the games we would get if these stupid rules never existed?

158

Wow! Lots of stuff this week!!
Much love going to the PSP as well. There’s got to be something for everyone here.

PSone games: Is this the tip of the iceberg we were hoping for? The only gripe I would have is the price for MGS of £7.99. Most have cost me £3.50, so this is a massive price rise especially in a recession. Glad I have the original discs so I won’t be buying. If it was a fiver or less, then I would – but greed annoys me.

Great weeks for PS£ and PSP.

159

Hi Mike,

Any chance you can add Galerians Psone Classic to your list?

Thanks

160

Good update.
Nice job Mike and co.

Any news on the FREE Avatars? Will we get any this year?
I’ll keep asking till we get a LOT of them ;)

no word of vagrant story from square-enix it was said in a news-letter it was comming but i know that was wrong date,

but when & FF8 be comming,

& lastly i to thought AD-hoc was comming did the guy who posted the thread LIED it was said comming soon,

i bet SCEA getting it. :D

Hey awesome update, will definetly be picking up MGS, just to ask is the video store coming out the same time as the update?

MGS shall be mine. It’ll be interesting to see how it’s aged!

Mike Kebby: Legend

When are you guys going to make the Playstation Network service available for PS3 gamers in Morocco ? I still can’t find my country in the list when I try to sign-up for a PSN account on my PS3. Get Your Act Together SCEE !

166

awesome update mike and store team!! :D

I have 1 question though, do you have any idea how much the comics will cost when it comes out in december? :)

may i ask if Facebook is really comeing and about there is a new picture interface?

Mike is the borderlands dlc comming to psn on tuesday?

thanks mike for answering

please please please tell me when the story is going to be updated with mgs i’ve waited long for this and atm i’m dieing of swine flu ( not literlly dying) but i would like to know if its worth staying awake for 30 mins till it is updated or should i have a nap and rest. hahah the psp is the cure swine flu i swear, its all i been doing, sod this tammy flu thingy haha, mike please answer and great work on the update u need to like get a pay rise or summin from your bosses, seems like your the only one who gives a crap about us 3 cheers for the mike woop woop woop woop. now just waiting for final fantasy 8

170.1

Probably be up later this evening (around 5ish) – go and take a quick nap and get your energy levels up ;)

Tekken 2, for God’s sake! Tekken 2 for European PSN users!

Hurray! MGS finally hits the store! I do wonder though, why is it 18s? Twas originally a 15s… stupid PEGI :p

173

Critter crunch will be mine.

and finally mike you are learning. at bloody last we have a real playstation 1 classic.

shame it took this long for us europeans to have it after the americans and the japanese already got theirs. still it’s a start.

Nice update. I like the tv news service in the netherlands as well. Good stuff:) Keep this up Mike, lets see if we can keep the whining to a minimum:D

Dang i’m gonna have to buy MGS for like the fourth time… For all the money i’ve spent on that sucker i should be getting the next mgs for free:P

175

….still no MUA2 DLC.

176

So Mike about 10 people asked about the video store coming to Ireland today in the Blog post about the video store but none of us got no replies. Is Ireland getting the video store today or are we not important enough to even get an answer

“A Hind D? What’s a Russian gunship doing here?”

Mike and the team thank you for Metal Gear! WOOOP!

178

Mike when can we expect to see Modern Warfare 2 Premium/Dynamic Themes?

Hi Mike-Thanks for Metal Gear Solid! Do you know if theres DLC plans/rough dates for Batman Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, and/or Modern Warfare 2?

Nice update, interesting games, good add-ons and it seems that with MGS the PS Classics lineu is moving in the right direction. Can’t wait to see more like these in the future ;)

suom160j-sssHake 19 November, 2009 @ 14:10

Still waiting Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee games, any news?

Thanks for Megaman Maverick Hunter X.

Will get it Saturday when my salary arrives : )

JAK AND DAXTER THE LOST FRONTIER £8.99 TESCO ENTERTAINMENT.COM

good to see you back mike, “manflu” didn’t take too much out of you? :)
so, a quick question about the video store…..

just kidding :)

better update this week, mgs finally available in europe after an age.
and you said the mua2 dlc is coming next week.
that doesn’t mean the issue of the reason for the delay has been resolved.
namely your assertion that scee never received the dlc in the first place and the devs saying scee had.
not that i’m saying you’re lying to us, i don’t believe you’d lie to us, i believe you were just responding based on the information you were given.
but then again maybe you were.
and i really don’t believe this is an isolated incident.
so i think some explanations are in order, you know me well enough now to know how tenacious i am, a dog with a bone is a phrase i’ve heard used to describe me a few times. :)
so you know i won’t let this die quietly. ^_^
i tried asking jem but it seems that rock he’s hiding under doesn’t have net access.

and i guess the drag...

and i guess the dragon age dlc means the game will release this week, i’ve waited long enough thanks to scee if i had to wait any longer i would have just bought the xbox or pc version.

184.1

Hi Hazel, you’re going to have to let this one go I’m afraid, the content fell through the cracks shall we say, there was miscommunication and we’ve done what we can to get this out as early as possible – that’s all you’re going to get out of me ;)

Hey Mike, You may have noticed me moaning about this every week (and I will continue until something happens ;) but how come all the Fall Out 3 DLC is £7.99 when it’s 7.99 Euros in the rest of the EU?

Well purchasing MGS is going to have to wait until I get paid…..

suom160j-sssHake 19 November, 2009 @ 14:19
187

Metal Gear Solid (£7.99/€9.99)
Real price should be 5,30 €
Is this ok.

Any news on the release date of Vagrant Story PSX Classic?

189

Monsieur, with with this update you’re really spoiling us.

I will concede that this week’s list is much longer than usual, and that I’m actually quite happy to see Disgaea listed there. Out of respect for that, I won’t say anything else for a change.

Fantastic update this week.

About MGS: is every country having it’s language dubbed version 5french, german etc.). French version is probably the most atrocious dubbing ever made for a game of this quality, and I was hoping Konami replaced it with the now usual English version heard since MGS2. If not, we are a lot just hating bad dubbing, and loving the original version (English and Japanese with sub-titles). I’m buying my BD games in UK to be sure I have the English version included, but as for the store, I’m stuck with French voices in downloadable games which don’t include all the Eur langueges.
It would be nice to make a new section in the PSstore, a la Itunes, with Original versions available, or from now on, include all the Eur languages in downloadable games, and even choosing language voices and text language would even be closer to perfect.
hana_fubuki: I totally agree, I won’t purchase any movie untill there’s the language and subs option available. Wich should be coming ...

Cheers!!!!

That is a very good update, yessss!!! I will spend some time deciding what to download today, hehehe.

193

Great update. Disgaea pricing very good, could only find it US import recently at 30 quid. Looking forward to trying Arctic Edge demo and Critter Crunch in particular.

Why are so many complaining about PS1 content? Time hasn’t been kind to early 3D games and the current gen has more great games than i have time for!

Would you have released MGS1 when you were supposed to, I’d be able to bring you some *ka-ching!*, now I don’t have any way to connect my PS3 to the internet.. so, bad for you, and bad for me.

Good thing is though, that the day I find some net for my console again, you will probably have released an update with in-game voice-chat, possibility for personal avartars on PSN, more PS1-classics like tomb raider and resident evil, TV-features and some VOD content (and the service of course, wich my console software now have been supporting for I-don’t-know-how-long?).. oh well, I can only so much try to fool myself that it will be so…. I know better ):

195

Sweet gonna have to buy LBP and MGS maybe Megaman too!! coming next Blood Omen pleasssse!!!!

Hi Mike,

great update this week. I was just wandering if we are going to get any DLC for tekken 6 in the future? also did you manage to find out any information on Fight Night Round 4 DLC that was supposed to arrive in October?

thanks pal :-)

I would also like to ask the question my fellow countrymen are asking on here-will Ireland get the video store and could you give us a rough date? Thanks Mike :)

£8 for a PS1 classic? What kind of joke is this. Make us wait forever for a decent classic than charge double what most others are?

How insulting.

199

The Kebster delivers. MGS1 is up there for me, thanks Mike. Just need the Resident Evil classics now. Silent Hill? Any idea whats coming Mike? Or is it top secret?

oh my god, after todays update I will have 28gb in psp games (40games!)! Sony really need to release them 32gb m2s! I got no space for music and films now!

Nagash_MalKaVian 19 November, 2009 @ 14:38
201

nice! just a question, when will be ADhoc Party up? I can’t wait to play FF:D and hopefully FFT online!

Not sure if you have any knowledge about this, but if you do: Why doesn’t the DLC that followed my Dragon age: Origins copy work? i’ve tried for some time now, and the code went in fine, but it says there are no available DLC…

Any sign of the flOw patch for europe? Am I asking this question in the right place – I have asked it several times now but no response…

Thanks for MGS, SCEE.

However, I’m not downloading it until I-(and some more friends that can’t write in english, who entrusted me with this issue before downloading it themselves)- get a written public confirmation that the game isn’t going to be pulled down like Silent Hill.

I’m not trying to make anybody angry, I’m not trying to be a Smarty, I’m just exercising my most basic rights, knowing the policy ethics and feedback permeability of SCEE.

Good day.

204.1

There won’t be a repeat of the issue with Silent Hill, that was us publishing it early by mistake (licensing issues prevent it being added again at the moment), MGS is absolutely, 100% meant to be up today, and is therefore going nowhere.

Even though my PS3 just suffered the dreaded ‘Yellow Light of Death’ im excited to hear about MGS1 on the store and Sony have been good anough to replace it tommorow which i thought was very quick of them (thank you continuous play) so first off thanks to sony for that.

But my question for you mike is, The US PSN store looks so much more organised than the EU store, they have a DLC chart at the right hand side which i think is kool and sub sections which makes it easier to find PS1 Classics and so on… Is the EU store expected to get the same sexy look treatment anytime soon?

The Stone Prisoner (£11.99/€14.99) ???? I thought it should be free for the first time after the release? r u sure it will cost, mike?

Did any of you had a chain-mail About paid PSN

look @ linky http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2009/11/19/the-world-ends-psn-may-get-subscription-service/

ouch but it not end of the world YET :D

hey Mike, awesome update, as soon as I get the money I’m buy MGS.

btw you’ve put the PSP special offers in the PS3 section, was that intentional :P;).

also I’ve read on Gamespot that Capcom plan to release their classics on the PSN, do you know any of the planned release dates of those?

208.1

Yeah they’ll be available to download via both stores, so it made sense to list them twice :P

209

At last MGS, never played it before so looking forward to this one

Disgaea 11.99!

My cries were heard!
THAT is an impulse buy..

Probably the most balanced PSP update yet, some good new ones, and good old ones!

METAL GEAR SOLID would kick WINNE THE POOHS ass any day! 10 euro…Pity its so expensive for a PS1 game.

212

Great update! Can’t wait to play MGS, while I was playing Splinter Cell today all I could think about was “I wish I was playing a better stealth shooter.. like MGS!”

And amagod, someone mentioned Road Rash.. is that a PSOne classic!? I’ve gotta go hunt for it now… I heart that game.

212.1

It’s on the PSP game EA Replay, as well as 2 and 3 ;)

When is Braid coming out? Thanks

£7.99 is quite a lot for MGS, consideing you can pick up MGS 4 for about £10/£12 ON eBay now. But still looks like fair bit to keep us going until we get some new Batman DLC and heaven forbid… some Modern Warfare 2 or Fifa 10 content!!!!

215

Wow Mike, you and the team deserve a pat on the back.

Critter Crunch, Sgt Pepper LHCB and maybe MGS for nostalgias sake.

Glad you were able to have a week off from the moaners too. :D

Carnivius_Prime 19 November, 2009 @ 15:08
216

LBP and Eyepet stuff as usual for me. interested in trying Gravity Crash when that’s on there.

Glad to see Metal Gear Solid on there at last but it’s more than I had hoped. Can’t really afford it this week (big bills week) so I’ll get it some other time.

Excellent update! I’ll be buying loads of content this week – Thanks a ton!

218

Hi Mike, great update, and great work, as usual, i appreciate all the hard work and fantastic effort, but I do have one question, if and when is this new EU Qore system, coming to the EU PS Store, if you dont know, could you pass this message on and find out for me ;), cheers Mike

MGS! sweet :)

I’d still like to se resident evil and the other usual requests…

but this will shut me up for at least a month :-)

220

Metal Gear, as all the others I hail you for this one.
But what a sweeeeet surprise you gave me with THE WARRIORS!!
Finally good stuff… I was spending too much time with my girlfriend haha!
Keep it up Mike, and thanks for your support.

Hey Mike,

Thanks for nice update, not much what I would like to have since I don’t have PSP but good to see they are getting the stuff needed.

I have couple questions concerning the store, I’m not sure whom these belong to:
– I purchased PAIN couple weeks ago and it works mostly Ok. For some reason Bowling is missing entirely and can´t find remedy. Who shoudl I contact to get even an answer?
– I have been pondering over Puzzlequest Warlords, with above experience (and no demo) available the price is high for me. Any hope of demo or special pricing for this well over year old game?

PuzzleQuest Warlords is great game, but IF you don’t have HDTV, it can be difficult to play as you can’t see travel paths in normal SD-telly.

Same in Finnish (more or less) ;)

Puzzle Quest on loistava peli, mutta jos sulla on vain tavallinen vanha ei-HD telkku, niin pelaaminen on hieman hankalaa, koska kulkureitit eivät näy kovinkaan hyvin (tai ollenkaan).

Where is Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 for the PSPgo? It’s mind boggling that it’s not on PSN yet!

hey mike any news on when the netherlands are getting those games that were suppose 2 be out.

@ 201 – Yeah but can you play it on the toilet?

Really nice update and nice Disgaea price – looks like NIS have looked at the Badman pricing fiasco and fixed things.

Now if only we could ban all French people from PSN in punishment for Thierry Henry’s cheating, it would be the perfect update :P
