‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 2nd February 2011

'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 2nd February 2011

Right, I’m sure you’ve already had quite enough of me blathering on this week, so it’s a mercifully short one from me today.

I promised you a great February and by golly are we going to deliver. Highlights this week include the kick off of the Mega minis Sale where you can grab 20 top-shelf minis for 99p/€1.19 each; X-Men Arcade (finally!), which allows up to 6 players to kick some backside in a retro, side-scrolling beat-down as the classic X-men; and Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, the robot arm action platformer with attitude.

We’ve also got trials for both Beat Sketcher and Tetris if you’ve been waiting to try before you buy. There’s also a small selection of additional Special Offers for those in search of the odd bargain.

PSP has BlazBlue Calamity Trigger, fan favourite 2D fighting action, and Lord of Arcana, the much anticipated and highly acclaimed action RPG.

But the star of the show this week has to be the Killzone 3 Multiplayer Beta opening up to all Store users – previously Plus only, now everyone has a chance to get stuck in and blow each other’s brains out in an orgy of blood and violen… sorry, I got a bit sidetracked there. Long story short, it’s awesome, grab it when it becomes available (here’s the bad news) at 11am GMT tomorrow morning.

Also with regard to The UnderGarden, despite the charming blog entry yesterday the game isn’t quite ready to hit the EU digital shelves yet, rest assured it won’t be a long wait and you’re not going to be short of things to do in the meantime.

That’s it – away with you, I say! I will be responding to comments today if I can, if I’m suspiciously absent this afternoon be safe in the knowledge that I’m out doing things to make your lives better and I will get back to the comments tomorrow morning.

Crash 2! Horrrayyyyy!

homerjnick 2 February, 2011 @ 1:02 pm   2

Very poor update for me tbh…can’t believe The Undergarden is delayed…

BlueTemplar74 2 February, 2011 @ 1:02 pm   3

Any word on when we will get Under Siege?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:10 pm    

    Last I heard it has now cleared QA, shouldn’t be much longer afaik. I will keep you posted.


Bionic Commando is a wee bit pricey, but still I gotta have it.

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:11 pm    

    I know it’s at the premium end of the PSN game prices but it’s got enough in it to warrant the price, I would say. If you liked the first one this is a must have indeed.

Shadow-Jaxter 2 February, 2011 @ 1:05 pm   5

When is Rayman (PSone) coming back to the Dutch Playstation Store?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:17 pm    

    I will ask Ubisoft to double check where they want to game to be available and if I can I will have it brought back to the Dutch store.


Cool update to go with my Plus as well.


Shame about undergarden – it looks really interesting. I hope the delay is not an Auditorium length one.

Can you confirm the price on the LBP costumes – ยฃ4 for a single costume is waaaaay to expensive.

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:15 pm    

    They’re both free, sorry I overlooked that while I was copy/pasting earlier. Someone nice will amend the post for me. ๐Ÿ™‚


@ #3 “Any word on when we will get Under Siege?”

None! ๐Ÿ™ Even the Devs don’t know. Sony QA have had this game since the beginning of Dec. I gotta be honest, my interest is starting to wain a little, thanks primarily to the delay.


Hey Ross, could you yell at Tomb Raiders publishers about the games being $6 on the US store and ยฃ8 on ours.

Releasing those PS1 classics at that price in UK is quite insulting. ยฃ8 = $13, we are being charged over double.

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:16 pm    

    I’ll be talking to them about it, yes, although ultimately as you know it’s up to them. This is a hot button topic though so I will definitely bring it up when next I chat to them.


Only good thing is Killzone 3 open beta.


This is frustrating as hell, where are the new avatars? Another week and nothing new…

ADPolicenaut 2 February, 2011 @ 1:06 pm   12

Just a quick question pertaining to the topic of PSone titles and JP imports – Will there be any possibility of Parasite Eve coming to the EU PSN, despite being unreleased over here?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:18 pm    

    It’s being looked at. A lot of things around PSone are being looked at. Can’t elaborate at the moment.


Oh by the way people Bionic Commando 2 has extra DRM, you can only play it if you are signed into PSN.

FallingStickman 2 February, 2011 @ 1:08 pm   14

๐Ÿ™ Why isn’t Crash Bandicoot 2 available in Poland?

Skookie30 2 February, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   15

Zzzzzzz……. wake me up when we get cloud saves only 3 things that is ALL 3 weeks Now we got poor update Why bother.

february is off to a poor start yes woot CB-2 back but it not new it was Pulled remember now wait till next week drizzle.



Shou_Kobayashi 2 February, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   16

Hi Ross,

Bad news. I might be not present in every update beginning next week for the coming 4 months :(. Work.

However I will still read the blog. In addition I’m awaiting EXPLODEMON, curve studios said 9.99 โ‚ฌ and release next week. !

I noticed this for the first time. So I tried my Legend of Dragoon disc and it worked. Next time Iโ€™ll read the (…) manual. My FF I, II, IV โ€“ IX are also working perfectlyโ€ฆ well I have a scratch on the 3rd disc of VII, so I bought that from the store. I will still buy them again (espc. LoD) for support and my PSP .. well maybe not FF VIII ….

Still awaiting Soul Edge (my brother took it) and Jade Cocoon (never had it).

Also, I might get Grandia with EXPLODEMON, because I gifted myself a 20 โ‚ฌ PSN card for just being awesome :)!

In addition, you didnโ€™t mention DEAD NATION for Germany on the last store update and the folder description for FEARY: Legend of Avalon is still not german ;).


guessing no Undergarden as there seemed to be an issue with a missing demo on US store according to the blog…

any news on when Euffloria or From Dust is coming?

unitedkronos 2 February, 2011 @ 1:09 pm   18

It’s great to see Crash Bandicoot 2 finally appear, any news on the missing Tekkens and Wipeouts? ๐Ÿ™‚

Carnivius_Prime 2 February, 2011 @ 1:11 pm   19

Bionic Commando 1 was a terrible game so no thanks to a second. X-Men I nabbed off the US store a couple months ago so I could play my american friends who I used to play the original arcade machine with anyways.

I might buy the two GTA’s while they’re on sale though Rockstar disappointed me so much with the hugely overrated horse-riding sim Red Dead Redemption I’m too afraid I’d be wasting my money.

Why are those LBP costumes ยฃ3.99 each? I have them already and I’m sure they used to be free. I wouldn’t have paid for those ones otherwise.

I think what’s most interesting lately is that making a PSP Mini has gotten a lot easier. GreenTechPlus+ on the store last week was made with the PC program Game Maker.

why tomorrow morning? why don’t you put the killzone beta in this evening update? and it’s 11am too… put it in the evening so we all start fare and square, for example i’m at school ’til 6pm and when i’ll get in the beta everybody will have almost everything unlocked…

Good update, thanks for the trial of Tetris and for bringing back Crash Bandicoot 2.

I’ll buy Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 sooner or later, I love the first one.

One question, why don’t we have Disney’s Hercules on the spanish store? I’d like to buy it, specialy with that offer…

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:20 pm    

    I think there are issues with licensing although I might be wrong. I am seeing Disney Interactive tomorrow so I will discuss it with them then.

MissSouthampton 2 February, 2011 @ 1:12 pm   22

Wow. The price has shot up on these

Chinese New Year Costume (ยฃ3.99/โ‚ฌ4.99)
Groundhog Day Costume (ยฃ3.99/โ‚ฌ4.99)

I think I may have got them free like in LBP1 era ha ha

nicolajNN 2 February, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   23

I have a bit of a problem and it will probably sound very stupid, but is there any way I can get help?

I got a PSN Card at christmas, and today I wanted to use it, I have never used one before and kind of ruined some of the code, I can see all except two. I also have an 11 digit code from the bottom of the card.Am I just screwed or is there something I can do?

Sorry for going of topic

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:22 pm    

    You’ll have to hit Customer Services up I’m afraid. They may be able to help.

Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:13 pm   24

Oh wow, that was a copy and paste error on my part there!
The LBP costumes are both free! ยฃ0 and โ‚ฌ0 – I will have someone amend that.

Death_Seaker3000 2 February, 2011 @ 1:14 pm   25

Meh Killzone 3 for me then… ๐Ÿ™‚


Not a lot for me this week, might get some Rock Band 3 DLC(The Clash FTW).
One thing I gotta know, even if you cannot reveal it yet, do you have a date set for the PSN release of Back To The Future: The Game?

AMERICAN_-_SCUM 2 February, 2011 @ 1:17 pm   27


    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:23 pm    

    I can’t magic them out of thin air. They’re all coming, they’ll get here when they get here.

Where is TR3?:(


Am i the only one that like the update? Only disappointed about not Under Siege is released yet :(. I have my funds ready on psn but they will soon go too something else.


@ nebdius

saw both those LBP costumes were free last night on US store – incentive to import games I guess especially as the UK doesn’t celebrate Groundhog Day

and no it has nothing to do with Bill Murray – its about a small animal seeing its shadow or not and predicting how many weeks are left in winter

AMERICAN_-_SCUM 2 February, 2011 @ 1:18 pm   31


Skookie30 2 February, 2011 @ 1:18 pm   32

@Ross a simple question why do you lot have to wait for the next fix window to release content take tomorrow & others release of titles Not on wednesday i would like More of them.

M$ Does it every time quite alot in fact you like to tease us that the problem with you lot take Plus you tease us with content but dont deliver.

You lot hype things & cyptic clues take the cloud theme for PLUS members. ๐Ÿ˜


Nice to see Crash 2 on the Store.. again. At a sweet price too, best Crash of em all imo. Tetris Trial is much needed too considering all them Tetris games out there and defo cant wait to try X Men Arcade (shame there’s no Trial) & about time for more GH6 Songs, even though they are poop.

Only criticism is the price (yeah i know. Mm) of DLC for LBP Costumes and im sure they were previously free?


Is Crash 2 any different from the one that was released back in 2007?

Dante_Zero 2 February, 2011 @ 1:21 pm   35

so no new avatars, no auditorium, no undergarden (released on US store yesturday), no dragons lair etc etc. Poor plus update too.

WOuld it help it SCEE just took a break of 4 weeks were you put nothing on all the stores and spent the 4 weeks fixing the issues with content lengthy q&a and lack of content. I’d be cool with no store update for 4 weeks if it meant streamlining,efficency and aligning content and q&a process with the other PSN stores.

Chaosprower 2 February, 2011 @ 1:21 pm   36

* LittleBigPlanet
o Chinese New Year Costume (ยฃ3.99/โ‚ฌ4.99)
o Groundhog Day Costume (ยฃ3.99/โ‚ฌ4.99)

Are the prices right? These same costumes were free last year.

@Myself.. As i posted & it refreshed, the LBP DLC is free.

DJ91rocks 2 February, 2011 @ 1:22 pm   38

For the Killzone 3 Multiplayer Open Beta will those that were in the Closed beta have to re-download it from the Store? Thanks

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:26 pm    

    Try logging in before you download a new client, I think it might be the same one.

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:04 pm    

    No I stand corrected, the Open Beta client is definitely a NEW CLIENT so you will need to download the new one when it becomes available.

AllytheBruce 2 February, 2011 @ 1:23 pm   39

those mini’s seem more tempting now at ยฃ1 each, it at least puts them in line with mobile phone games but I’ll check out reviews first before I buy

Danieljay1 2 February, 2011 @ 1:23 pm   40

it should be time to start adding ps2 games and ps3 games on demand to keep up with the 360

smashrash 2 February, 2011 @ 1:24 pm   41

finally, the update i’ve been waiting for.
By the way Ross, is there any word on the Spyro releases?
Crash 2 just came out and all i need are the PS1 Spyro games.
You will have one happy customer ๐Ÿ™‚

Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 1:27 pm   42

Right – leave your comments, I’ll be back later on. Thanks all.

Ross said: ”I think there are issues with licensing although I might be wrong. I am seeing Disney Interactive tomorrow so I will discuss it with them then.”

That would be great, thanks a lot!

Danieljay1 2 February, 2011 @ 1:28 pm   44

the US got gta iv and assasins creed brotherhood avartars next week how comes we dont get them

Sometimes i wish the store was one big store and everything goes on their

Shadowdragoon 2 February, 2011 @ 1:28 pm   45

Any Chance we get Tales Of Graces f?
Stumbled upon a video of that game, and it looks interesting.
(Its a PS3 Game)


Cheers Ross and lzorpo for the responses.


lol, cant believe people get upset because theres no avatars on the store for them……. :~)

anyways, Ross, is the killzone open beta any different from the closed beta..?, do i need to delete and re-download or is the older version i already have on my hd good enough..?

and get them bloody avatars sorted…LOL

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:07 pm    

    It’s a bit frustrating for me sometimes because I can see that all the records for those avatars are in the system and I can’t give them to you!

    Seriously, all the Capcom ones and the Rockstar ones, and the Assassin’s Creed and the Tron ones and all of them are definitely going to be here soon.
    The NIS ones I’m not sure about but I will chase them down if I can.

    And yes, I double checked and it looks like you will need to get the new Killzone client when it goes up tomorrow.


So this is your idea of a Fabulous February is it? A sale on minis? So the 6 or 7 PSOne titles we were promised would blow us away in January never happened. The big update on Monday was a story basically saying “Oh have pitty on us as it’s really really hard work getting PSOne games licensed etc. etc.” I assumed that these 6 or 7 titles would be arriving today, at least that’s what the article led me to believe, along with Wild Arms?

Lord of Arcana may have been a purchase for me if not for a.) it’s cheaper to buy UMD version and b.) UMD version comes with loads of extras such as art book, Soundtrack CD etc.

I think the only reason people complain about these poor updates is because you big them up so much. There’s all this “Hey look at this, it’s great and next week’s going to be even greater” when in reality it’s not. You can polish poop, put a bow on it and do a song and dance number about it but at the end of the day, it’s still poop.

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:14 pm    

    The story on Monday was described to be exactly what it was and nothing else. I have clearly stated on several occasions that the six titles I was referring to, including Wild Arms have been legally cleared and not that they were ready to be released imminently.
    In no way was the article meant to garner pity, I just thought that perhaps the community would like an explanation a bit of transparency around the process, and it was largely received well.

    February as a whole month is going to be a very strong month for PSN content, including four new PS3 titles next week, among which are Stacking and Explodemon. This is week one of four and I consider this week’s publish to be a very good one with new titles for both PS3 and PSP, new minis and the delivery of a highly requested PSone title.

    I do sincerely apologise if you don’t agree but as the old adage goes, you can’t please all of the people all of the time.

AMERICAN_-_SCUM 2 February, 2011 @ 1:29 pm   49



curious why people think the dynamic cloud theme for plus users is some cryptic thing about cloud service – if plus were being given a theme called buds in bloom would plus users think they were being given recreational plant matter?

greyness123 2 February, 2011 @ 1:31 pm   51

rubbish update nothing new though in this new store era

So Ross, if you canโ€™t tell us the remaining five psone classics but you can tell us which ones are not on the list- can you give us all the ones that are โ€˜notโ€™ on the list?!

Worth a try :P!

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:15 pm    

    There will be more details on Monday, so hold out for then. I don’t want to tell you what they are and get your hopes up only to find they won’t be deliverable. I’m confident that Wild Arms will be fine once it gets through QA, hence I was happy to tell you.

TheKillerSnowman 2 February, 2011 @ 1:31 pm   53

killzone 3 beta for me this week

shadownobody 2 February, 2011 @ 1:32 pm   54

Nice update Ross

why are this ps1 classics missing from the portuguese store?

command & conquer
command & conquer red allert
theme hospital
theme park



Any update on the MLB 11 The Show import idea?


addyjones1234 2 February, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   56

Pretty nice update today. Definitely Crash Bandicoot 2 for me <3

Cheers Ross ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, I'll ask. PJ Shooter 2? ๐Ÿ˜‰


“Also with regard to The Undergarden,…, rest assured it wonโ€™t be a long wait and youโ€™re not going to be short of things to do in the meantime.”
Who are you to say wether we are short of things to do in the meantime? If you are inferring that we should just buy something else this week, then you can go and whistle. I have no interest in ANYTHING else this week, no not even the KZ3 beta.

imajinetion 2 February, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   58

And finally, the Crash Bandicoot collection is complete. The good games anyway.


with the KZ3 beta will that have 3D and move support?
I know the SP demo will, but cant find any info if the beta will or not.
Also, the beta announcement only had one map listed, please tell me thats wrong.
Kinda pointless running a beta on one map, no?
Also, whats happening with us who still have the beta from PSN + closed beta?
I still got it on my HDD, so can i access the open beta from this or do i need a whole separate download?
I read in a post a while ago one of the GG devs said you will need to download the new beta, but than others are saying you wont.
Oh well, ill sign in tomorrow and see if it works if not ill re download it.
I hope its not too big, only got 10GBs of my download usage for the month left and i still need to download the SP demo, and apparently DNF demo releases late this month along with the crysis 2 MP PC demo.
hope crytek release a SP demo though, really looking forward to it dying to get a taste of the SP!

smashrash 2 February, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   60

@syncroUk (comment 55)

Ross isn’t in charge of answering questions about importing. He only answers questions about the playstation store.
You should try someone else.

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:18 pm    

    It’s okay, the idea was first tabled through here, and it was related tot he possibility of a digital copy. It’s being looked into.

Just a friendly reminder for you to keep reaming Q Game’s Head for a possible Pixeljunk Shooter 1 Soundtrack release date as you told me to keep…Wait that came out wrong…ahem.
Just another friendly reminder, as you did ask me to remind you now & then, in order to glean a possible release date off Q Game’s Head Boss(the one whom writes in the PS Blog about PJS2 sometimes)for the Pixeljunk Shooter 1 Soundtrack(I’m a huge fan of The Orb). It would be really nice to see it instore before it’s retarded sibeling arrives. Tho I am envisioning a nicely presented digipack with clear see thru cd holders with a 2 cd release of 1 & 2 with complementary PJ 1 & 2 artwork on inside covers and outside covers. mmmmmm dvd size digipacks of course. Yes yes please Smรฉagol says forget the precious. We want self-marketed PJ 1&2 Soundtrack cds in clear plastic holders, dvd size with Smรฉagol sating artwork from the games, yess yesss….AND a trip to the shiny face moon too.


Hate to be the bearer of bad news in my first comment here, but those mysterious missing Rock Band tracks that were said to be returning a few weeks ago never appeared. I’m one of those many guys who picked up Unplugged, played the Freezepop track, and have been dying to play it on my proper game ever since! Any chance of an update on this one?

And to quickly change the topic to Parasite Eve, since the 3rd Birthday is coming out over here (well, according to retailers anyway, don’t know if its official) it’d be great to see the series on PSN. I say that having no idea what its about, but it looks interesting enough to throw money at!

But apart from that, I’ll just say I really appreciate what you guys do here. It’s great to see that a major company like Sony keeps the consumer relations open with a blog like this, unlike some other businesses in this industry. Heck, for all I know Nintendo is run entirely by robots with the secrecy they keep. It’s just nice to see there’s a human face behind all the corporate stuff, actually taking requests and trying to provide a better experience for us all!

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:21 pm    

    Humm. I will chase down the issue with the Rock Band tracks, I have a list of what should have returned so I’ll do some cross referencing. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

    Parasite Eve 2 is planned for a PSN release currently, nothing yet for the first game in the series although it had no PAL release originally.

gamerpro3 2 February, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   63

hey ross any word on the spyro games??
and will tombi 2 be released as well after tombi 1??

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:19 pm    

    We’re looking at Tombi 2 as well, yes. Don’t get too excited yet, we have to make it work first. ๐Ÿ™‚

almighty-slayer 2 February, 2011 @ 1:46 pm   64

Everyone reading this, be aware that Bionic Commando requires you to be logged in to PSN to play the game, even though it is an offline game

If you don’t want to support Capcom’s stupid DRM, don’t buy it.

CookieMonsterES 2 February, 2011 @ 1:46 pm   65

Ross, is there any possibility to see a LittleBigPlanet themed set of deals soon? Costumes, level packs, anything.. it would be great to celebrate the LBP2 release ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:21 pm    

    Yes, keep an eye out. We’re organising some discount bundles on Costumes at the moment, they should show up in the near future.

almighty-slayer 2 February, 2011 @ 1:46 pm   66

Also, thanks for the update Rossyboy

nicolajNN 2 February, 2011 @ 1:46 pm   67

Sorry to disturb again but I have surfed the danish playstation site and can’t find any information about how to contact customer service. Please help.

Hi Ross ๐Ÿ™‚
Any words on the Spyro ps1 games?
And do you know if Final Fantasy Crisis Core will be avaible on the PSN store som time in the future?
And Bith by sleep?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:22 pm    

    It’s up to Square-Enix to decide to release digital versions of BbS and Crisis Core – we’ve asked them about the possibility in the past.

Anfield_Red 2 February, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   69

Great update. Nice to see a true PSone Classic!

thorgrimm 2 February, 2011 @ 1:49 pm   70

Ross is the open beta…move compatible?

Have I missed something? Has Tombi been confirmed as definite? I thought it was just part of the list?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:23 pm    

    Tombi is definitely going forward for legal clearance, ie; one step further than just being on the list. ๐Ÿ™‚

BoH3MiaNRhAPSdY 2 February, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   72

Hey Ross Could you have a talk with SOE and bring over some dc universe online avatars like Superman and Batman ( etc.) they will sell mad crazy and i will you love even more than i do already ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:24 pm    

    I have a feeling there might be some issues with portraying their likenesses but I will certainly have words with the right people and let them know there’s an interest in this. ๐Ÿ™‚

GahLakTus 2 February, 2011 @ 1:54 pm   73

what crap! iv been with PSN+ for months and hadnt had option of KZ3 beta!!!!!!

Killzone 3 beta and Fight Night Champion demo for me!

Any chance us in the EU territory will have a chance to win the Helghast LE by playing the beta? Or US only? ๐Ÿ™


Hi Ross,

Coolies, a week where I don’t have to ask about why X isn’t available in Australia / New Zealand. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now to wait for the avatars that are in process.

geddesmond2 2 February, 2011 @ 1:58 pm   78

Capcoms out of there mind charging 15 euros for Bionic Commando. The first game was 5 euros I think(maybe 8 euros,can’t remember) and reviewers are saying the second game is only half as good as the first game.

I think I’ll wait until the game gets a price drop. Doesn’t Capcom know that PS3 owners are fighting for free time to play all these great games thats coming out. A game selling for that price could easily be forgotten.

snap02-12 2 February, 2011 @ 1:58 pm   79

It seems like the Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony & Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned Bundle is currently not available in Germany. It was supposed to be up with last week’s update. Any news about when it will become available? Thanks in advance!

sympozium_666 2 February, 2011 @ 2:00 pm   80

Can you kindly ask Bandai Namco for various Dragonball/Gundam avatars? like wouldn’t be cool to have a avatar of a Gundam?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:26 pm    

    Sure I’ll ask, it would be quite cool to have a Vegeta avatar…
    IT’S OVER 9000!!


SuperFunky 2 February, 2011 @ 2:03 pm   81

With so many things missing every month of what they originally promised, and with all these problems that occasionally appear, I think they have to rename the service from Plus to Minus…

PapaLongLegs 2 February, 2011 @ 2:05 pm   82

Definitely a shot in the dark, and I know the store update has nothing to do with it, but any news on a patch for Mass Effect 2? I’m dying to play it again!

kamikaze_pt 2 February, 2011 @ 2:08 pm   83

any news if magic: the gathering is coming to portuguese store?


lfarias007 2 February, 2011 @ 2:09 pm   84

Crash Bandicoot 2!! YES!!! Finally, thank you. It was the first game I played with my playstation! So many hours… ๐Ÿ˜€


My Eye dropped directly on the fight night demo yeah..!! happy already and did not even take time to look @ the rest of the list will do that now ๐Ÿ™‚

AlexPSN89 2 February, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   86

@ Ross:

Hi there! Back from my volounteering early today, but Futurama has kept me busy for a while before I could turn on my notebook.

Quick questions:
1) when is “Dissidia Duodecim [012] Final Fantasy Prologus” (the paid demo) going to be released in the European store? (just a vague “soon” is enough.
2) about Square-Enix, we all know about their japan-only “international versions” (the sheer irony of the definition still keeps me bashing my forehead on the wall even today): a specific DLC for the new Dissidia is tied to the “international version” of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep and only limited to it. Do you know if it will be available in other regions? (the DLC, not the Kingdom Hearts game)

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:33 pm    

    In answer to you fist question, the Prologus will be out at the same time as the US (at least that’s the date I have).

    Second question, the short answer is that I don’t actually know if they have plans to release that DLC elsewhere but I will try to find out. If it’s any help, I have no specific visibility on it which means it’s not scheduled at the moment.

GREGGY-BOY- 2 February, 2011 @ 2:16 pm   87

Nice update Fight Night Champion & Killzone 3 for me.
Got in the Top 10 of the Fight Night 4 Welterweight Leaderboards so hoping to reach the top this time!

Does the Killzone 3 Beta have Move support?

Can u say to all Games Developers to reset or open Leaderboards once the particular game is released in all territories because Americans are always going to be top in most cases.


LazyBaker 2 February, 2011 @ 2:17 pm   88

Hey there Ross!
Sweet update. Care to comment on recent rumours regarding Cloud Saving for PS+?!

Selvestesigurd 2 February, 2011 @ 2:17 pm   89

Is the update coming at a certain time of day every week or does it vary? it seems that the new stuff never is available until after 1630 CET, in Norway at least.


I’ve noticed that the previous blog post about ‘undergarden’ has been sneakily edited by James to reflect that it’s not actually due to be released until February 23rd.
Any reason why we have to wait another 3 weeks? I assume the usual ‘localisation’.
Stuff like this really needs to stop happening (not the delay between releasing in different regions … although something needs to be done there, but the releasing of incorrect information (which is then hastily edited once you realise you’ve made yet another mistake), not only does it make SCEE look bad, it makes the developer look bad too.

    James Gallagher 2 February, 2011 @ 2:44 pm    

    There’s nothing sneaky about coming clean right at the top of the post and putting your name to it. “Yet another mistake” is unfair – I go to great lengths to ensure this blog is a very accurate source. Occasional human errors like this are going to happen when you deal with the amount of daily content that I do.

AaronSOLDIER 2 February, 2011 @ 2:19 pm   91

Will buy Crash Bandicoot 2 as soon as it hits. Not sure it was published by SCEE, but any chance on us also getting Crash Bash too?

Shou_Kobayashi 2 February, 2011 @ 2:23 pm   92


I must admit I kinda hoped you had a cheeky comment for me, but I see there are more problems to attend to.

If I can, I surely will hit the PS Blog with my ramblings within the next 4 months…!

Also I think the content coming for PSN Store is getting better, even if by now nothing of this update is for me, I am looking forward to TALES FROM SPACE. About a Blob and EXPLODEMON (which is due next week :))

Without further ado, just remember:

Besides as I said in the PsOne article before… it was a good read and I appreciated the intel … I hope the positive responses and the media buzz it generated will green light more articles like this one!

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:38 pm    

    Thanks Shou but just because I’m not around all afternoon you don’t have to assume there’s a problem – I might be off planning fantastic PSN related things for you!

when will be that update available ?

AaronSOLDIER 2 February, 2011 @ 2:28 pm   94

Also cant believe Fate/Unlimited Codes still hasn’t had a price drop here yet, North America got a perma price drop in September. I really want it too. ๐Ÿ™ Capcom = fail.


Ross my man <.<

only the + content for me today it seems altho i am tempted by bionic commando but i think i'm like 40p away xD (curse you avatars)

oh and Ross you got any jurbs going *shifty*

i can make a hell of a good cupa tea and toast :D*

*may or may not be true

strikkebil 2 February, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   96

We know sony is Full off cyptic words, Eric lampell was cyptic about cross game chat saying it possible in a interview

SCEE andy house was cyptic saying about cross game chat in a EG interview.

but sony is struggling to cope when to announce it like cloud saves. ๐Ÿ˜


KZ3 beta! ! ! ๐Ÿ˜› Can’t wait;)

strikkebil 2 February, 2011 @ 2:34 pm   100

also, im happy to see kz3 beta. and the minis sale. will probably pick up at least one of them.

WP-start 2 February, 2011 @ 2:34 pm   101

Thanks for answer re/ Tombi! ๐Ÿ™‚

I do worry about the second game though. Even though it played fine back in the day, I just have this horrible feeling that it won’t get through QA. :S

Also hope to see Medievil 2 incoming! Suprised we haven’t got that yet tbh. Can’t be a legal problem surely so is it a QA problem that’s causing problems?

mrgreaper2004 2 February, 2011 @ 2:35 pm   102


sorry to shout but i been looking fwd all week about that and theres no sigin of it !!!!!! will it be added latter today?? please say it wont be 2morro watched my mate play it on the 360 yesterday they look awsome!!!!

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 2:40 pm    

    Microsoft have an exclusivity deal with Activision for the earlier release of Call of Duty map packs on Xbox 360. Sorry.

Plankton1975 2 February, 2011 @ 2:35 pm   103

I’m a tad dissapointed about the delay for The UnderGarden, was looking forwarf to something a tad more relaxing than the norm.

Ah well, hopefully my US copy of Afrika will arrive by the weekend.

andycass 2 February, 2011 @ 2:36 pm   104

Nice to see you’re carrying on with the garbage store updates in 2011 keep up the incompitent work Sony.

cowboy2190 2 February, 2011 @ 2:36 pm   105

Jesus, will we ever get any more decent PsOne games? Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Dino Crisis are all available stateside!

Plankton1975 2 February, 2011 @ 2:36 pm   106

The Black Ops map pack is another timed 360 exclusive, so ya got around another month to wait before it hits the PS3

CJSgamer 2 February, 2011 @ 2:37 pm   107

Ross. Will there be any Spyro Paine classics ever?

CJSgamer 2 February, 2011 @ 2:37 pm   108



I see Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 has the same DRM software as Final Fight did, why does SONY allow publishers to use this DRM software? Its annoying not being able to play a game because your unable to connect to PSN.

I usually play games like Final Fight and BC when I can’t get online (for what ever reason) it just seems stupid to use DRM on PSN software.


From what I’ve read, the cloud service WILL be exclusive to plus subscribers! Don’t shoot the messenger

Tenchuwoh 2 February, 2011 @ 2:40 pm   111

Ross, thanks for getting Crash 2 back, my Crash Bandicoot collection is now complete!

Will next weeks PSOne blog have anything about the possibility of US only PSOne classics being released?

AaronSOLDIER 2 February, 2011 @ 2:42 pm   114

Also Broken Sword – these games rocked!

Paul-Pegasus 2 February, 2011 @ 2:42 pm   115

Tempted to go give Rearmed 2 a try, enjoyed the first one! on an unrealated note, i recently renewed my playstation plus after not having it for a month and all my old playstation plus content is listed as expired? I was under the impression that if you renewed you would be able to acesses your old content again? HELP much appreciated!

Crash Bandicood not in Greece?OMG we do not have vidzone,no playTV,LoveFilm!Why everything is coming last or never in Greece =(

Crash Bandicoot 2! My first video game ever! (And the reason why I have Croash as a user name)

Thanks a lot ^^ I’ve been waiting for it to be available on the store for a while, even though I have the original. Now after 13 years I will finally get a 100% completion >:D

Getting this + Vagrant Story today I guess :/
Bring more PS1 classics! You know, the usual stuff you must constantly be spammed with, like other WipEout games, Syphon Filter 2, the Spyro series? ๐Ÿ˜€

Can’t wait for Tombi, I remember playing the demo over and over again when I was 7.

ShinnokDrako 2 February, 2011 @ 2:46 pm   118

First time i post here (i think, can’t remember… ;P). Good update, dunno what to get tho. For sure the KZ3 demo, since i liked a lot the beta.
Thanks for the infos Ross, i guess you need a huge amount of patience…. cause people are NEVER happy about anything… ;P

Will Crash Bandicoot 2 ever come to Greece ?

Neochaos 2 February, 2011 @ 2:51 pm   122

Will the other 5 PSone Classics be available for Greece, when they will come out?

Shou_Kobayashi 2 February, 2011 @ 2:52 pm   123

Well I was reffering to those ppl on the blog in the need of help and clarification in contrast to my well farewell for 4 months ๐Ÿ˜‰ and not to your abscence :).

I always assume everything you do is for the benefit of PSN (EUR), you wouldn’t go the extra mile and answer some questions if you wouldn’t be determined or care about the updates. You could pretty much take the us route, drop the bomb and go over to other duties :).

Kinda funny, I started with the CPAS RAMBLINGS myself, but hey … all of your comments made me understand quite how your business works ;). Kinda ;p.

So don’t be a slacker and keep up that good work … besides it would be pretty cool conjuring content out of thin air. How about a He-Man / She-Ra Beat ’em up, THQ has the licence from Mattel, so start conjuring ;).

Also it’s kinda amusing, that someone with an US acc is rambling about the euro avatars… trolling much ๐Ÿ˜€

Tenchuwoh 2 February, 2011 @ 2:59 pm   124

Greece is in Europe and many people got Playstaion 3 here(F.E. all my friends)!Why everything is coming last or never in Greece!?I will say again that we do not have Vidzone Yet,Official Greek PS Magazine said that we will have it!It came in europe before 2 years and still….Not in greece!Crash Bandicood 2 not in Greece?PS Official website from PS3 didn’t have GREEK language before 4-5months,DCUO came in Greece after 2 weeks,PSMOVE as a stand alone unit came in Greece after 2-3weeks!What is going on?I love PS3 but what’s wrong with Greece?=( I really hope that u will not ignore me and i am not the only one who wants these changes!Thanks

there is something wrong with downloading RED Faction: Guerrilla it always stops at 25% 1388MB of 5484MB


@ James’ reply to post 90 – Regardless of wether the update to the blog post is at the top of the post with your name attached, the information contained therein was wrong. Yes, you realised the error and amended the post, but that is exactly my point, the error should never have occured in the first place.
I also realise that, due to human error, things like this are bound to happen every now and again. However, I do not think it unfair to use the phrase ‘yet another mistake’, because that is clearly what it is. I’m not trying to be harsh/difficult just for the fun of it, if nobody picked up on these errors there would be no progress.

I Got Red Faction: Guerrilla During the February sale and it stops on 25% could this be the same problem as with shatter or what??

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 3:25 pm    

    No, this isn’t the same issue. Downloads stalling tend to be to do with Network traffic on popular titles. Try again later, if it keeps happening post again.

Hey Ross

What are the odds of Bust a Groove 1 & 2 making their way to the EU store? I never got to play the sequel and itโ€™s so hard to find.

Also, Iโ€™ve noticed that newly uploaded PS1 games have their original manuals scanned in, I was wondering whether you will be updating the previously uploaded games with their original manuals?

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 3:26 pm    

    Where we have access to the manuals we (or the publisher) do scan them – sometimes this isn’t possible. Something else for my long list of things to look into. ๐Ÿ™‚

ShadowFlex 2 February, 2011 @ 3:19 pm   136

Ross, I see the US store had//has Disgaea avatars. I know you must have a huge list of “I wants” already, but if it’s not too much trouble mind adding one more? ^.^ Disgaea rocks! Not too much out to peak my interest this month, which is great because I’m skint! =D

    Ross McGrath 2 February, 2011 @ 3:24 pm    

    I can’t guarantee the NIS America title avatars will make their way over here yet but I am investigating.

jonnatar 2 February, 2011 @ 3:27 pm   141

Ross, on the US Store BC:R2’s description states that ‘you must be logged into Playstation Network to play this game’, whereas the UK Store has no such thing mentioned. Is the UK version not account/DRM/whatever you want to call it-locked in this way?

Hi Ross, Can you help me? I purchased Tetris in december thinking it was the 1080p one. In fact I am almost certain it’s the same as the one you released today so why can’t I rate it? If they are different then why release them so close together?


i’m trying to buy some stuff on media go but it’s just not working, i click on an item and nothing happens, the minis i can just buy on the ps3 but that’s not an option for the comics.

speaking of which even if we can’t view the comics on ps3 it would be handy if we could download and store them on it.

Ross, assuming it’s not already on your list, I have a PS1 game to suggest – Sheep, Dog ‘n’ Wolf. It was a pretty unique platformer, and probably one of my favourite PS1 games – it blended in stealth and puzzle solving to standard platformer gameplay, and would definitely pay to play it again :-).,_Dog,_'n'_Wolf

ElTequillaz 2 February, 2011 @ 4:05 pm   158

Ross can you confirm that the price of the GTA IV episodes bundle have been fixed properly for Denmark and Portugal? Denmark being the country I live in, while a person from Portugal mentioned the same problem.
This is what I wrote on last week’s update:

“think, and hope, the price of the GTA IV bundle is a mistake, at least here in the Danish Store. The combined price of each of the two episodes would cost 210 DKK, while the Bundleโ€™s price is 200 DKK. Surely this must be remedied.”

Death_Seaker3000 2 February, 2011 @ 4:05 pm   159

Yo Ross. I cannot find killzone 3 single player demo. Would that be part of the beta or separately item?

KylieDog 2 February, 2011 @ 4:06 pm   160

Hey Ross I dunno if this is your area but when I try to download the latest patch for PAIN it gets a error part way through, done it on 5-6 attempts throughtout the last week.

I have no issues patching any other games and my connection is fine. Any light you could shed on this please?

HiddenAway 2 February, 2011 @ 4:08 pm   161


OK sorry, must have sped through that post. Give it time. It should eventually appear.

I’m actually surprised it’s not delayed till Friday but what do I know ๐Ÿ˜‰

moriarty1975 2 February, 2011 @ 4:12 pm   162


Killzone 3 demo will be on the store February 16th.

February 9th for PS+ users.

CookieMonsterES 2 February, 2011 @ 4:17 pm   163

@ Ross:

“Yes, keep an eye out. Weโ€™re organising some discount bundles on Costumes at the moment, they should show up in the near future.”

Excellent news! Thanks for the response, will be looking forward to it, extra kudos if there’s some kind of Marvel pack ;P

MaxRstar 2 February, 2011 @ 4:17 pm   164

x-men and bionic commando for me… oh! and crash bandicoot 2? NOT!

D1rk-Knight 2 February, 2011 @ 4:25 pm   165

Why no Crash Bandicoot 2 for my country?! ๐Ÿ™


i was wondering are the avatars also coming through QA cause it sure takes long 2 get some simple pics

o ya good job off getting Blazblue just wondering are we getting Continuum shift 2 for psp

AaronSOLDIER 2 February, 2011 @ 4:46 pm   167

Downloading Crash Bandicoot 2 right now! Keep the PS one games coming!

Whoa, didn’t expect Crash 2. Anyway, great to see it up again!

On a side not, I’d like to express my interest in PSOne imports, especially the first Parasite Even since it was never released here and it ought to be the better of the two (and even after The 3rd Birthday, I expect it to be the best of the series). Of course there might be some others I don’t even know about that much.


Any update on when EU users will be able to log in to Playstation Home? IT’S BEEN TWO WEEKS NOW!


The Monopoly Mini game is not in the Swedish store.

guybrush3_16 2 February, 2011 @ 5:01 pm   171

Any DJ HERO 2 Song packs coming our way. Good news on Crash 2 tho. Probally wait and see if it becomes free tho through PS+


KILLZON3, what an EXCELLENT time to release this 12 am Dutch time i am off work then.

When can we expect a Crysis2 demo/beta..? or will that be as the situation is now (X360 Exclusive)

xx-InFeRnAL-xx 2 February, 2011 @ 5:09 pm   173

Another weak update like usual…

Got2bemad2behere 2 February, 2011 @ 5:10 pm   174

What is up with the Plus this month? I don’t get a PSone game at all, just some NeoGeo title? I really hope that this is a mistake because I paid for getting three minis, one PSone and one full game. Seriously, not cool.

darkhorus15 2 February, 2011 @ 5:16 pm   175

Great to see Crash Bandicoot 2 alive and well in the store once again, about time. Now only for the Spyro series, any word on when Spyro will hit the EU store? plz answer

xx-InFeRnAL-xx 2 February, 2011 @ 5:18 pm   176


Man i feel sorry for you really, because i a plus member like you, and PSN PLUS JUST SUCKS man, really many serviรงe problems one recent example is shatter, but we have other problems like lack of content, promises fail, the discount make me laugh, in conclusion PSN PLUS = BIG EPIC FAIL…
People really, dont subscribe this crap its a huge mistake, when my subscribe over i will never RENEW THIS CRAP AGAIN, and my advice is dont subscribe guys.


174# We are always getting 2minis but this time we got 3minis

Rammstone 2 February, 2011 @ 5:19 pm   178

Sweet. I just saw this list of minis on sale and I thought alright I will grab Fieldrunners and Monopoly.

Guess what, neither of them are present in my store. Not that I’m surprised at all, thats usually how it is living in a country Sony doesn’t care about.

spikemad2005 2 February, 2011 @ 5:23 pm   179


Not Sony’s problem it’s the publishers that decide what content goes to which country…


Why are there random avatars and themes on the media store?

cakeforme288 2 February, 2011 @ 5:28 pm   181

good stuff again, its these kinds of updates that give me the warm and fuzzy feeling on the inside, thanks for all of these offers, really helps me clear up those small bits of change from other purchaces.

Rammstone 2 February, 2011 @ 5:28 pm   182


Good point. Let me rephrase. Not that I’m surprised at all, thats usually how living in a country no one cares about!

xx-InFeRnAL-xx 2 February, 2011 @ 5:30 pm   183

You say that because you dont spent money in PLUS, you are not a plus member like us, you save your money (nice choice), but many users like me feels betrayed by Sony. Certainly understand what we feel, if you dont understand that, its because you are a Sonyfanboy, but that’s your problem…
I am client not a fanboy… I WANT RESPECT!!!

squatch1983 2 February, 2011 @ 5:40 pm   184

I was looking for Lord of Arcana too, no sign of it. Really wanted that.

Death_Seaker3000 2 February, 2011 @ 5:41 pm   185

@162 Im a plus member so feb 9th for me ๐Ÿ™‚

strandedPL 2 February, 2011 @ 5:45 pm   186

Why there’s no KILLZONE 3 Single Player demo yet? That was the main thrill of this update for me. Bleh.

darkhorus15 2 February, 2011 @ 5:47 pm   187

Soooooo…… Crash Bandicoot 2 is available again in my country, Belgium, but why can’t I buy it? If I click on it it says there’s no content.

CurryShaman 2 February, 2011 @ 5:50 pm   188

Hey Ross!

Any idea when the EU store will be getting Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People? Been out on the US store for a month now and really looking forward to it ๐Ÿ˜€

ratchetjak12 2 February, 2011 @ 5:52 pm   189

Any news on when EU/UK will be getting “Ricochet HD”. Love Brick Breaking Games and the US store has had this for a month.

uncleniccius 2 February, 2011 @ 5:54 pm   190

hey ross – do you have any idea when the blackops dlc is coming – i know it’s not until march but a date would be great ๐Ÿ˜€

Vaistrat 2 February, 2011 @ 5:56 pm   191

Good job Ross, thanks for the PS1 post, it’s a shame the main problems are still the same.

To all fifty y.o. phoenician on top of/running their respective third party publishers:

You are out of touch with reality, get over it ASAP and realize that screwing customers up will only get their money away from you.

The pricing model for digital content is broken, your marketing departments have no clue.

Activision and their prices, Capcom and its crazy DRM, Konami and their lazy publishing departments, overpriced neogeo emulations and the remnants of Virgin europe closing their hand around good ‘ol resident evil.

Will you go *uck yourselves please? all of you, we are just trying to play some games, you know, stop torturing us with your ignorant and wildly staggering money grubbing attitude.I don’t condone Piracy, but you evil publishers, ARE THE MAIN CAUSE OF IT, get it through your skulls.


Seriously, i think Plus is a nice bonus.. i agree it could be more various for different tastes..
I decided to get the 15โ‚ฌ deal ( 3 months ) b/c in the summer i play occasionally but not enough,
i hope PS+ will expand though,and i hope the EU store will get better to.

I am sure the EU team is doing their best,I hope for more Exclusive beta’s,current date game discounts ( or close date ).
and hoping publishers will be more willingly to give Sony more PS+ benefits,from what i understand it’s not in Sony’s hands,and negotiation is needed to provide content for us..

Anyway,i can understand the difficulty that the team has,but we gotta try to stand in their shoes once in a while.

Skookie30 2 February, 2011 @ 6:06 pm   193

well Yes Bobby.K is EVIL 1200 points for BO DLC that be over a tenner again like MW2 ๐Ÿ˜€

Jackal24_ 2 February, 2011 @ 6:12 pm   194

Been looking in the store for lord of arcana but it’s not there. Stuck playing the demo still.know when it’s online?

also ross do you know if there will be a Dissidia 012 demo out soon. japan got a demo you had to pay for, will the eu be getting the same treatment?

Martingutten 2 February, 2011 @ 6:17 pm   195


No?….. that is sad in so many ways


maybe a mistake but… uhmm. why is KZ3 demo shown as exclusive demo ?
i know it’s not out yet, but shouldn’t it be for everyone?

Vaistrat 2 February, 2011 @ 6:23 pm   197

Ah…feel relieved,[deep breath] I dream of a world where all publishers and developers are like Atlus…lol
At least there’s no lack of good content nowadays, the EU store has improved greatly these last years in that regard, that no one can deny.

darkhorus15 2 February, 2011 @ 6:27 pm   198

I hope there’ll be a mod or admin on soon, so they can tell me why I can’t purchase crash 2

PnKnG8909 2 February, 2011 @ 6:41 pm   199

Hi Ross,

I wanted to buy Blazblue but can’t add any funds to my wallet, neither via Media Go nor directly via Playstation website.
I got an error message that says the credit card info is wrong. I double checked the info and also removed and readded the infos.
Still the same problem.
Does anybody else have the same problem or could this be cause by any updates and only be a temporary problem?


shadownobody 2 February, 2011 @ 6:41 pm   200

where is the psn plus exclusive theme?
i dont see it anywhere

Jackal24_ 2 February, 2011 @ 6:45 pm   201


could be due to update or maybe insufficiant funds.

i had this problem yesterday too.

Skookie30 2 February, 2011 @ 6:52 pm   202

@PnKnG8909 how many times you try to put/check details you may trigger the 24 hour lock out & you must wait 24 hours again. ๐Ÿ˜

Ross, if you read this before tomorrow, can you ask Disney Interactive Two suggestions.
1: Any chance of Mickey’s Wild Adventure for PSN.
people would like this, ALOT. since its the closest thing to epic mickey for a Sony Console.

2: Any chance of a kingdom heart Classics HD like that dev did with the Sly Cooper Games. Square Enix might be liked a fair bit more

Thats all i can ask.
oh and make sure you watch Namco Bandai’s announcment later on tonight

Jackal24_ 2 February, 2011 @ 7:05 pm   204

sorry for asking over and over again but anyone know when Loed of Arcana full game will be up and running on the store?

PnKnG8909 2 February, 2011 @ 7:06 pm   205

@Skookie30 Maybe 4 or 5 times over a number of hours, only got the message that the details are wrong when they are not.

The 24 lockout would trigger a different message, right?


Ross, in one comment, in page 2 you said “The first game was the same price when it launched, actually.” talking about Bionic Commando Rearmed. That not true.

I still have the pusarche email from 22nd October 2008 (the week the first Bionic Commando was released, and the day I bought it) and the game’s launch price was 9,99โ‚ฌ.

Said that, I think 14,99โ‚ฌ would be a good price for Bionic Commando 2… if it hadn’t this “required online” DRM to start the game. I was going to buy it until I found out about this DRM.

This past months, I’ve been going a lot out, to a town where I don’t have internet, and I always take one of my two PS3s there. With this DRM, I can only play the game in one of my PS3s, and only at home, but not when I go out, so… I’ll buy it when the price it’s lowered.

Skookie30 2 February, 2011 @ 7:13 pm   207

the message is “this is not vaild” with a error code it happen to me i had a debit card ages ago not now till i phone sony, phone sony there & tell them the error code to see if it is the 24 lhour lock out. ๐Ÿ˜

sournuts87 2 February, 2011 @ 7:17 pm   208

Is ther anymore survival horrer games coming to th Ps1 titles like dino crisis 2 and is it ciming out this year and does the US psn store update like the EU update please respond.

Skydancerx 2 February, 2011 @ 7:21 pm   209

Why is there no Mega Man 9 Pack (only 10) on “January” Sale in Germany? In UK and other EU Stores it is!

Today I finally got my copy of Crash Bandicoot 2! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

darkhorus15 2 February, 2011 @ 7:26 pm   211

@209: Man, you were able to purchase Crash 2? I can’t, yet it’s right here in the store, I’m looking at it as we speak, I can even click on it, but when I do it says there’s no content inside.

vonhammer 2 February, 2011 @ 7:34 pm   212

“Bionic Commando Rearmed 2” loved the first,wont be going near this after hearing about the offline lockout.


I can’t see Lord of Arcana in polish PStore – it will be released later ?

PnKnG8909 2 February, 2011 @ 7:40 pm   214

@skookie30 problem is I live in Sweden, we don’t have a phone line. Only a mail. and thats not getting answered until tomorrow either. So either way I will have to wait until tomorrow.

SONY or whoever works there, can you PLEASE mark the games clearer in the Store with a nice big






Thanx guys

these Mini’s are NOT in my store

Championship Manager 2010 Express
Bowling 3D

i wanted to get Monopoly, but……yeah, only now i cant

Dewisant 2 February, 2011 @ 8:00 pm   217


You guys teaming up with Dominos pizza, so on the XMB you can order a pizza, and because it’ll be linked to your user ID, Dominos will have your details and payment will be made through the PSN, sooo the pizza will come and you say – “thank you very much, I shall now continue my 14 hour game marathon…” then close the door.

On another note, any word on the Legacy of Kain games……?

NickOrrock 2 February, 2011 @ 8:01 pm   218

Is it just me or is Lord of Arcana not on the PSN store

verbaluk 2 February, 2011 @ 8:06 pm   219

Its not on funny i was gonna buy it but i manged to get the boxed gaem for only one pound due to my game card having tons of money and i did not know. So ty PSN for saving me money XD

Ross! Just wanna make it clear that we’re not all whiners, and that we appreciate your hard work. Ta!

darkhorus15 2 February, 2011 @ 8:29 pm   221

Yeah Ross, I appreciate your hard work, even though I can’t purchase Crash 2 (even though it is in the store, I just can’t buy it), maybe they still have to upload it to the my country’s store.

LiquidSolid 2 February, 2011 @ 8:32 pm   222

Any news about the Ys games coming to Aus and NZ?

And could you tell Capcom that their DRM is hurting sales? It’s put me off buying it and it’s obvious there are plenty of others who feel similarly. Instead of giving them my money, I’ll happily spend it on other games (probably one or both of Explodemon and/or Tales of a Blob).

Have you guys thrown around the idea of gifting? I ask because I think it’d solve a lot of the ‘x isn’t available in y’ problems a lot of us have. I think it’d be much more in-line with the cool region free sort of movement Sony’s been taken this gen, unlike that other company who are going in the opposite direction…

Blackxino 2 February, 2011 @ 8:47 pm   223

[Deleted] is going on!?

my own PSN UK store is not even updated:/

still last week stuff


OK,now i see why KZ3 demo is shown there,
sure wish u didn’t remove Borderlands deal,wanted to buy it friday ( DLC included )..
But couldn’t u replace BF1943 for something else ?.. i bought it..

and where are the Exclusive dynamic themes ?
thank U…

Titanium_Snake 2 February, 2011 @ 9:19 pm   225

ยกHola Seรฑor Ross! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nice update, I’ll have some X-Men action, some minis, some free, and not so free, LBP DLC, and finally some Spare Parts robotic fun.

I’d also like to point how about totally amazing Little Big Planet 2 is. Seriously, it’s like digital joy on a shiny Blu-Ray disc. Media Molecule have done an outstanding job on it, not to mention the fantastic work of the LBP community, there’s some great levels out there.

Any chance of a LBP DLC sale? I’m scared to go nuts on the DLC in case a sale pops up five minutes after I click buy. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Also, any word on what MM are working on? Move compatibility? Tron levels? Toy Story and The Muppets costumes? They’re kinda shy about sharing info, only thing I’ve heard is that they’re working on something really exciting… ๐Ÿ˜‰

BYW, it doesn’t seem like Monopoly is included in the minis sales (and a great sale it is too. :)). And finally, any idea what titles Sega are putting in the Dreamcast Collection? :p

Scubafinch 2 February, 2011 @ 9:44 pm   226

Hi Ross,

Thanks for the store update and all the effort you put into your responses to the community.

One quick question, can we have a sale of the caliber of the US Stores’s 11 for 2011? At those prices (or slightly inflated EU equivalents ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I’m sure you’d shift a few units.

Arqus_Zed 2 February, 2011 @ 9:47 pm   227

I’ve already seen similar reports of two fellow Belgium gamers, but just to confirm it…

Crash Bandicoot 2 has no content in the store – the icon’s there, but it’s as empty as a hobo’ wine bottle.


Whose brilliant decision was it to not have Crash Bandicoot 2 available in the Czech Republic (and other countries)? I did read the whole article on what hurdles have to be overcome in order to get PSOne games to the Store but I seriously doubt CB2 had a different distributor in the left out countries. I remember that when I purchased CB2 back in the day, it was a multi-language version (English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, probably).

I was looking forward to it so much and now it blows up in my face. I know it’s not Your fault, Mr McGrath, because Your only the messanger but I hope that You’ll also deliver the message that potential paying customers are denied the possibility to hand their money over to Sony.

I just hope that when Tombi eventually comes around this won’t happen again.


Gack, I meant “because YOU’RE only the messanger”.

darkhorus15 2 February, 2011 @ 9:49 pm   230

@Argus_Zed: So it isn’t just me? Well, I guess maybe they still have to upload the game to the Belgian store maybe? Or maybe it was a mistake after all, anyway I hope it’ll be resolved soon so that I can download it.

Xerife_Lavanda 2 February, 2011 @ 11:12 pm   231

Oh c’mon,

This is really getting old Ross, what happenned to the the GTA IV episodes on the portuguese store?

I don’t want to be rude, but I’ve been quite patient, two weeks have passed and no signs of the bundle,and the Lost and Damned that before I could buy for 9,99โ‚ฌ has been unexplicably bumped up in price to 19,99โ‚ฌ, the two episodes now cost 37โ‚ฌ aprox. while this bundle that never showed up was to cost 20 โ‚ฌ ๐Ÿ™

Can I please get some kind of answer, since my last posts were ignored?

Thank you in advance :/


could you atleast see if it’s possible 2 get this in E.U
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Dynamic Theme
considering the PSP game was impossible 2 get
U.S got it this week i know anything else ever request here is impossible or completely pointless

thank you
I have psp go and i want to play this game so bad!

Bovrillor 3 February, 2011 @ 11:33 am   249

If this ‘cloud’ thing is true, it better be available to all PSN users… not just Plus. Not fussed about the theme, but security for our save files should be a RIGHT, not a priviledge… especially with the dodgy locked save files STILL being used.


Hello, nice update.

I haven’t posted here before, but one thing that bugs me is the DRM on Bionic Commando Rearmed 2.

I bought and liked the first, but as long as there is this online requirement for a SP game I won’t get Rearmed 2. Can you relay this to Capcom? They are loosing sales over this bull…

SmoggyPhil 3 February, 2011 @ 1:20 pm   251

Thanks for NOT answering my question Ross. I’ve got a US PSN card on the way from the States. $20, so..yeah. I mean, a quick generic “We’re looking into it” or “Yes” or “No” answer would’ve done, but..doesn’t matter. You’ve actively turned me towards the wonder of the US Store. In fact, I recommend everyone from the EU (Especially those from the regions which SCEE totally ignores eg; Denmark, Portgual, Czech Republic, Germany) here signs up for a US account, and gets their butts on eBay. The US Store has more PSOne classics, more themes, more avatars, and a hell of a lot more games. Why waste time here on the EU Store? Takes all of 10-15 minutes (inc; creating a new e-mail account) before you’re browsing a store actually worth your time as loyal consumers. Ignore the travesty of the EU store, turn to the US stores and pillage!

In other news: I miss Kebby. That guy aimed for over 100 comments. He communicated well with us. I guess thats why they moved his position..

uchihasgenius 3 February, 2011 @ 1:25 pm   252

@Ross: I still can’t purchase Crash Bandicoot 2 today, it has no content. I live in Belgium, the icon of Crash 2 is there, but it’s empty, it has no content inside. Ohter Belgians have also reported this problem, if you read this Ross, can you check it out? Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

If only i can get some SCEA psn cards with-out the Fโ€˜ing hassle to go Ebay with-out debit card SCEE is a joke that a fact we wonโ€˜t get those games i betcha.

on a bright side FF4 the comple collection is coming for EU psp and if you look end of trailer it look like it coming to PSN store SE is the knee-bees (the best) ๐Ÿ™‚

@ SmoggyPhil there are some game sellers that also sell psn cards canada, dont know if there is any difference between canadian psn, our usa.

google for video games plus, i buy my games mostly there, while i live in the netherlands, cheaper and perfect service.

Hi Ross,

Regarding PS1 content, i would love to see the likes of Doom, GT1, 2 and Wipeout 2097 which was meant to have been released back in 2007 if i remember correctly, has it completely slipped off the radar then?

@ross AlexPSN89 asked you about the Dissidia 012 Prologus demo. I don’t know if you can give an actual date (though that would be nice, please!), but will we be getting it tommorow? Within a week? I simply cannot wait, and I really do want the demo!

Guys where are the dynamic themes as they are not in the playstation plus section?? :0

I dunno if this is the right place. But I look at these things every week, hoping and praying and I never receive.

Where on EARTH is Resident Evil Directors Cut? Where is Resident Evil 2? 3?

I’ve been waiting 2 years now. LOL :/ I want them on the store already, everyone else apart from Europe has had it for ages.

Make it happen please? I already even had a reply from Capcom, I forgot what that said though it was like last year x.x
