nice update

Spaulding 29 April, 2010 @ 1:01 pm   2

When will we get Monkey Island SE?

Aidoneuz 29 April, 2010 @ 1:01 pm   3

Any word on Battlefield: Bad Company 2 DLC Mike?

sharpenedpixel 29 April, 2010 @ 1:02 pm   4

I guess a lot of people will be happy for Championship Manager 2010… As for the rest of us…

GahLakTus 29 April, 2010 @ 1:02 pm   5

nice update

but no monkey island iv been lookn 4ward to this all week, the us got it last week. why dont we have it?

whats the point in releasing all the tie ins in homw and not bothering to bring out the game at same time?

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:18 pm    

    I don’t know the reasons why it’s not out yet, but whilst I can see Monkey Island content on the release schedule, I cannot confirm any dates at present, this is for the publisher to communicate not me. Sorry.

Roxas598 29 April, 2010 @ 1:02 pm   6

isn’t the WKC theme up already?

or is this a new one :O

vicheous 29 April, 2010 @ 1:02 pm   7

Just cause 2 DLC! Not much more for me… Maybe WKC theme..
Hope next week will be “INSANE” since your changing days for updates.
I hope for something special ๐Ÿ˜‰

@ Mike I’m not going to ask how you are because I already know. ๐Ÿ˜‰
And wasn’t there supposed to be a Wake boarding HD demo? Or was that the USA blog?

thank god i diden’t buy a psn card today nothing but crap being released we don’t even get monkey island or lead and gold for the other country’s so screw it all and screw sony europe with their lame updats everyweek

hamildan 29 April, 2010 @ 1:03 pm   10


Can you tell us why PSN cards are sold out across all of the UK. I know a few stores that haven’t had them for months. It can’t be that hard to print them up, so why the stock problems?

KC-alpha-14 29 April, 2010 @ 1:03 pm   11

I’ll take the freebies! As I’ve spent my last ยฃ5 on PSN to get the Uncharted 2 Siege DLC. And hints on more Uncharted 2 stuff?

seblonguk 29 April, 2010 @ 1:04 pm   12

Bug spotting: Guitar Hero tracks not formatted quite correctly.

MilkyJoe84 29 April, 2010 @ 1:04 pm   13

I echo the question of when do we get monkey island…

vicheous 29 April, 2010 @ 1:04 pm   14

Will it be up at 3( you’re time ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) as usual mike?
Or around there… I want my JC2 DLC


Pretty good update, might pick up some of the lbp dlc at that price!

Still waiting for monkey island though ๐Ÿ™


And now, the end is near,
And so he faces the final update.
My friends, he’ll say it clear;
“We’re now back on Wednesdays”.

He planned each update list –
Each careful blog along the highway,
And more, much more than this,
He did it Mike’s way.

For what is a store? What has it got?
If not a Mike – Then it has naught.
To blog the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows he took the blows
And did it Mike’s way.

Couldn’t let Anti-Climax Thursday pass without marking it Mike ๐Ÿ™‚

moriarty1975 29 April, 2010 @ 1:04 pm   17

Anything nice kept back till next wednesday?

Lantianer21 29 April, 2010 @ 1:04 pm   18

Nice update mike
JustCause2 and MAG DLC + wakeboarding demo ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice one,thanks
See ya wednesday :p

almighty-slayer 29 April, 2010 @ 1:05 pm   19

Confusing new layout…

Nothing for me this week then! Probably good, as i have no money.

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:21 pm    

    I think it’s probably only confusing because it’s new. Somebody made a point last week about changing the layout and I thought I’d give it a go, makes the list shorter and everything is clearly labelled for which format it’s for ๐Ÿ˜‰

dazbobaby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:05 pm   20 will be posting the videos of the dynamic themes as soon as they are on the store.

TheHappyTurtle 29 April, 2010 @ 1:05 pm   21

Any word on what the Just Cause 2 DLC actually is, I’m guessing it’s probably some sort of helicopter or jet. Or maybe both considering the price increase.

Good Update, and apparently there’s going to be some Hustle Kings stuff today (They announced it on their forums).

PanixATK 29 April, 2010 @ 1:05 pm   22

still no Flower soundtrack? *sobs*

why worry about that they aren’t really releasing anything off any gaming value, at this rate you’ll only be buying stuff you diden’t care for in the first place

AaronSOLDIER 29 April, 2010 @ 1:05 pm   24

No monkey island? Will get it from US store.

Terak_PSN_Ru 29 April, 2010 @ 1:06 pm   25

no Mega Man 10 for Soviet Russia?! Comrade Stalin is very angry!

iTetris 29 April, 2010 @ 1:06 pm   26

Where’s Lead and Gold for The Netherlands, Mike?

gheywood 29 April, 2010 @ 1:06 pm   27

Thanks for the update. Got to say though, I preferred having the PS3 and PSP content separate. It made it easier for those like to me jump straight to the PSP content (I don’t have a PS3 ๐Ÿ™ ).

orton131 29 April, 2010 @ 1:07 pm   28


How are you Mike you ok? Hope so. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways can you tell me if/when WWE SmackDown Vs RAW 2010 DLC is coming? And I also heard we were getting MW2 DLC this week…??

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:23 pm    

    No news about Smackdown DLC on the schedule at the moment, as for MW2 content you may see something quite soon… ๐Ÿ˜€

Arkeologen 29 April, 2010 @ 1:07 pm   29

If PSP games were playable on the PS3 you would sell loads of them.
LOADS of them.
I’d buy 10 in an instant.

wink wink

Kevling 29 April, 2010 @ 1:07 pm   30

Nice to see the update list grouped more sensibly, rather than repeating items in a PS3 store, a PSP store etc…

Carnivius_Prime 29 April, 2010 @ 1:07 pm   31

I’ll take me the SSFIV costume pack as I got the game today and it’s great (but I knew that cos i have the older version too). So I’m just gonna be playing plenty Street Fighter and still addicted to the new Uncharted content from last week. Yup I’m sorted.

Though I would like some idea of when Monkey Island will be out here.

Bodachi 29 April, 2010 @ 1:08 pm   32

I’d like to get the Megaman 10 DT but the problem with them is they don’t change the TV icon which I just think is lame and It just looks bad even though all the others do change it.

i can bet your ass next week we going 2 get even less content and then they will blame it on the change off psn store date and then he will make a excuse about how hard they are working on it yet we never see any results and then eventually everything will be going back 2 it’s own crappy self

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:24 pm    

    Nope, next week is looking like a fairly big update thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

HiddenAway 29 April, 2010 @ 1:08 pm   34

Ugh, Mike, don’t mix the sections up please :P. I do repost the blog posts in another forum – but I split the PSP downloads as seperate.

See you on Wednesday…

Bruins1993 29 April, 2010 @ 1:09 pm   35

no modern warfare 2 map pack?? i thought it would be out today…

any ideas if it will be out on wensday?

Yorkeh89 29 April, 2010 @ 1:09 pm   36

how much will the MW2 DLC Cost cuz i hav been told it going to be near ยฃ12, why does addons now be so expensive!?


The Secret of the Monkey Island – Special Edition, last week on PSS US. When it will be released in EU?



    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:26 pm    

    Vamet, I’m afraid it’s not going to be that soon according to the release information I have, but it’s definitely coming.

Workshed 29 April, 2010 @ 1:09 pm   38

I was really hoping for Monkey Island this week ๐Ÿ™

Valthyr 29 April, 2010 @ 1:09 pm   39

Aha… No Lead and Gold last week for our country and others. And now we still have to wait like two full weeks for the localisation to be approved. That’s a compelte no-go for me. I was looking forward to the game, but I ******* hate waiting antoher two weeks for it. Especially for some usless localisation thingy. I mean, what do you event want to localise in Lead and Gold? I would even prefer a complete English version.

It’s Steam or nothing…

SCEE keeps faling my expectations. That’s why I’m mostly complaing in these sections.

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:28 pm    

    I don’t mind taking the heat from you guys on things that are our fault, but if the publisher does not supply us with the localisations and metadata we need in order to release in certain countries, then we have to wait until we receive them I’m afraid. We have to have a submission process, with strict timings in place, else it would be a nightmare to schedule content releases.

Workshed 29 April, 2010 @ 1:10 pm   40

Any idea if we’ll be able to get the Pixeljunk Shooter soundtrack at some point?

Sp4reNL 29 April, 2010 @ 1:10 pm   41

And again no Anarchy: Rush Hour ๐Ÿ™


Poorish update, but then you knew that didnt you mike? lol

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:30 pm    

    I concede it’s a small update this week, but we can’t have awesome updates every week, that’s just not realistic. You can’t expect high-street retailers to have an awesome line-up of physical content every week, and the same is true for digital.

MoneyMarko 29 April, 2010 @ 1:11 pm   43

poor update.


No Monkey Island? ๐Ÿ™ Well, US Store here I come! ๐Ÿ™‚

indyithou 29 April, 2010 @ 1:11 pm   45

No Anarchy Rush Hour, it’s sad … ๐Ÿ™
I know it can be difficult to have the good date release but we don’t have any information for this game. Have you got any ? Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚
PS: Soldner X2 date release also ? ^^


most off the time if the game isen’t on the psstore for a certain region that missed it they don’t care about it so don’t get your hopes up for another 6 month if your lucky

AllytheBruce 29 April, 2010 @ 1:12 pm   47

Not a great week for ps3 in the offers, but I guess it’ll always be mix and match, champ man does look interesting, if it gets good reviews I might partake

The_Shuffle 29 April, 2010 @ 1:13 pm   48

Mike, anything on your release schedule for Planet Minigolf yet? If it’s slated for a Q2 release, then it’s got to be in the next 5-6 weeks, hasn’t it?

imajinetion 29 April, 2010 @ 1:13 pm   49

What the hell, where is Monkey Island!?

AnimaOnline 29 April, 2010 @ 1:13 pm   50

FirstPlay and a free dynamic theme and a demo. That’s all I need. ๐Ÿ™‚

On a side note, I’m assuming FirstPlay is also moving to Wednesdays, right? I’m sure it’ll say on the episode but I’m too impatient to wait and find out.

Cheers for the update, Mike.

    Mike Kebby 29 April, 2010 @ 1:31 pm    

    FirstPlay is indeed moving with us to Wednesday’s, they won’t get lost in the move don’t worry ๐Ÿ˜‰
