‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 27th July 2011

'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 27th July 2011

Hello everyone, it’s Wednesday and so time for a Store update.

A few new PS3 titles for you this week – leading the charge is the hotly anticipated Section 8: Prejudice, fresh from a tour of duty on the other platform and raring to go on PSN. And what’s more, for this week only you’ll be able to purchase Section 8: Prejudice with both of its DLC packs included at no extra cost – grab this deal while you can as it’ll be gone before you know it.

Plus members get a little something extra too, as James previously mentioned, not only will Plus consumers get an exclusive in-game unlock but the first 1000 Plus members who are opted in for email who buy the game will get a free copy of the original Section 8!

What else this week? You can take your pick between a relaxing few holes on the minigolf course or defending your neighbourhood from bloodthirsty zombies – I appreciate that’s not an easy decision.

Four PSP titles also take the plunge and move to Essentials today, so it’s a great time to grab a bargain on one of these Disney games – we’ve also permanently reduced the price of the DLC for both Hannah Montana and Toy Story 3.

The LA Noire avatars make an appearance this week too, alongside a new Traffic case, and we’ve got a good selection of DLC for some other goodly titles for you to sift through.

Oh and something called Call of Duty: Black Ops has a map pack out tomorrow, I’m sure some of you will be interested.

That’s it from me, enjoy your content and get ready to Play.

I DON’T want Tombi, Resident Evil 2 or 3, Wild arms, Tomb Raider 2 or any others, I WANT CRASH BASH. So there is no need to concentrate just on them, there are other popular games as well. Why don’t you make CRASH BASH number 1 on priority, like the resident evils and other games listed above. My guess is, it’s probably not even in the top 10.

What I don’t understand is that CRASH BASH is a Sony published game; therefore, legally it should take about two weeks to clear. Sony published games are supposed to be much easier to publish therefore should be done first.

Can you please answer ALL of my points and not just one.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 1:38 pm    

    Actually Crash Bash is in the next batch of titles we’re trying to release, and has legally cleared because it doesn’t have any of the external license issues associated with the trickier games.

    You’re also listing a mix of third and first party titles there, we’re not responsible for all those titles but the ones we are responsible for: Tombi; Wild Arms and the like are all being processed as fast as we’re able.

Chocobo115 27 July, 2011 @ 1:32 pm   2

When will we get the pink knight for castle crashers?
Also when will you sort out the missing somgs for Rock Band games? I remember asking this half a year ago and NOTHING has happened at all. Instead of blaming it on the companies (and the companies will blame it on Sony) can you make sure things get fixed? I used to have a complete list of songs gone missing on the store but have no access to it right now

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 1:53 pm    

    I am now investigating the Pink Knight issue and spoke to The Behemoth about this recently. Currently the status on the third-party systems is that the Pink Knight DLC failed at QA during its latest submission and there hasn’t been a new code submission yet.
    Since this has gone on for quite some time now, I have asked third party to make contact with the publisher and look at getting a new submission into QA as fast as possible. Once the content does pass QA we can have it on the Store within two weeks, so in subsequent posts you can ask me about it and I’ll try to kep you up to datwe with the current status.

    This seems to be more of a breakdown of communication rather than anyone being at fault, so I’ve done what I can to get things moving again.

SoundableObject 27 July, 2011 @ 1:33 pm   3

You still haven’t fixed my problem with the update two weeks ago. The Awesome Summer Mini Bundle came with the French Version of Zombie Tycoon. I’ve been waiting a week now and am especially angry that you can’t be arsed to fix a mistake with such a small update. You can’t even just give me a refund.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:07 pm    

    Hello, I’ve just got off the phone with some of the chaps upstairs and the situation is currently as follows:

    The correct version of Zombie Tycoon was substituted into the bundle around 36 hours after the publish of the bundle, so all new consumers would not have been effected.
    If you got the french version, I’ve been told that you can contact customer services with the issue and that the Operatiosn team will credit your account with the correct version of Zombie Tycoon – in practical terms this means that if you go into your download list you will find the right version.

    This will only happen if you actively make the request with customer services, so I advise you and anyone else who got the French version to drop a line to customer services and this should be sorted out for you.

cheeky4life 27 July, 2011 @ 1:33 pm   4


Have you sorted the Cool boarders 2 thumbnail out so I can download it yet?

You guys seriously need to get organised. Tekken 2 is in the S section, the Tomb Raider games are not in order, as well as the final fantasy games, I don’t know which one is which and can you put Crash Team Racing just after Crash: warped, and hopefully Crash bash after that if you ever do decide to wake up and quickly get it.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:16 pm    


    I have organised to get the Cool Boarders 2 thumbnail updated with the PSone Classic treatment and it should be fixed on the Store soon.

    I’ve also passed on your merchandising points to the team that look after the layout on the Store, so that will be investigated. Hopefully we can get those issues squared away in time for the next publish.

    Thank you.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:52 pm    

    Hey, I’m reliably informed that the Operations team have made all these fixes and they should be live on the Store now.

PHILYPOT08 27 July, 2011 @ 1:33 pm   5

YES ROSS i love you L.A noire avatars WOOOOO cheers ross 🙂

Nightmare966 27 July, 2011 @ 1:33 pm   6

Ross! Where is the Sideswipe unlock for the Transformers 3 game? it’s already a week late. Has Activision contacted you about it?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:18 pm    

    Hello – the Sideswipe unlock should be available from the in-game Transformers store, Activision opted not to release it on the store front.

almighty-slayer 27 July, 2011 @ 1:33 pm   7

Back to the future episode 5?


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:19 pm    

    Hiya, the final episode of BTTF is scheduled for release on August 3rd, all going well.

Shou_Kobayashi 27 July, 2011 @ 1:34 pm   8

Oh … there goes my hope playing Warhammer 40.000: Kill Team this week with one of my friends and Ross commenting ever on the blog again. 🙁

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:23 pm    

    Sorry, I can’t discuss this, but the game is scheduled for release soon.

cheeky4life 27 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   9


Where is that PSone classic blog request thing you were talking about years ago, oops sorry, months ago?

Oh and don’t ignore the question!

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:20 pm    

    I’m not allowed to talk about it yet, but we’ve got some cool news for you about PSone emulations soon.

Dark-Twisted 27 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   10

Yes! Early enough for you to see my comment 😀

Ross, my birthday is coming up soon, and I know you must get tired of people requesting PSone classics, but I’d LOVE to see Ape Escape on the store. I figured since it’s on the Japan PSN, it should work with the emulator?

I’ll love you forever if you put it on the list. Cheers 😀

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:28 pm    

    Ape Escape is on our list – the Euro version failed QA, in fact I have the QA report in front of me and the problem was that the game didn’t detect the PSP Analogue stick. The game constantly pops up the message about not being able to detect the stick and then quits out.

    If the game is out on the Japanese Store then they may have a way around the issue for that version – would you be happy with the Japanese version if that’s all we could get working? I’d be interested to know your thoughts.

kool-chris93 27 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   11

Hey Ross,
I’ve got two questions
1) Is there any possibility of adding the Australian Dollar to this update? Its kinda annoying not being able to see the prices through this site.
2) Are there any plans of merging PlayStation Plus with Music Unlimited. Both subscription services are fantastic, but I cannot see why we have to pay for two separate subscriptions when they’re both offered and run through Sony PlayStation.
Thanks in advance.
Nice update BTW

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:37 pm    


    In answer to your questions:
    1) It’s not impossible but we serve over 15 separate currencies and it’s not really practical to list them all in the blog update, hence I follow the GBP/EURO layout that was instigated by Mike. At the moment I would say there are no plans but we can look into this if there’s enough demand. Listing each currency would be a fairly tough thing to do, since compiling the blog post is a manual process.

    2) That’s not really my area, I’m afraid. I would agree that perhaps in the future it might be possible to consolidate these subscriptions or perhaps to offer a discount to those who have both, but business development of that kind is outside of my area of expertise.

    Thank you for the comments.

Sergirt 27 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   12

Hello, hello;)!

You don’t forget fight for the Classics Japanese PSOne (Megaman 1-2-3, Sonic Wings Specials…) and USA PSOne (Xenogears, Parasite Eve 1, Chrono Cross, Legend of Mana, Einhander, Dragon Quest VII, Brave Fencer Musashi, Saga Frontier, Lunar 1-2, Ogre Battle, Tales of Destiny…)(Great games;O) for the Old Continent!!!!

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:38 pm    

    Duly noted – there’s a group of us here who are working hard on trying to get you US and Japanese imports for the Store.

TwinBlade04 27 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   13

Hey there, Ross! Copy and paste from last week:

I got a new PS3 and transferred all the data from the old one. The game data (installs and updates) was causing problems in the process, so I deleted all of them thinking I could just update/install everything again. And it all well for all games, except for Motorstorm 1.

Well, Motorstorm doesn’t update the way other games do nowadays. I need to enter the game and choose “Online” from the menu so I can download the update. The problem is that it seems the servers were closed and there’s no way to download the update. It isn’t my connection or anything, there’s also other people that can’t connect to the servers and download it.
And without the update I can’t use the DLC packs which I bought a few years ago and are still on sale in the store. That doesn’t seem right.

I know the game is quite old now and the sequels are already available, but what concerns me the most is not being able to use the DLC I bought previously.
Is there a way you can explain this problem to the Evolution Studios and sort out a way for people that bought the DLC (and will buy, since they are still in the store) to download the update, please?

Hope you can help me.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:46 pm    


    WELL outside my ability to help, I’m afraid, but I’ve passed the issue on to the product manager for Motorstorm here at SCEE, so hopefully he will be able to help.



Just wondering why the PS1 Classic ‘Driver’ is missing from the IRISH PS store, I asked Ubisoft about it but they told me to come back to Sony about it??

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:42 pm    

    Remember those tick sheets I mentioned in the system about whether or not a game can release on a certain Store? The Irish Store is not ticked for Driver at the moment.
    I believe that’s an oversight rather than any kind of problem with why the game should not be on the Irish store, so I’ve sent a note to Ubisoft and the Ubi account manager here about updating that so we can push the game to all locales.

    Thanks for the feedback.

toxic-inferno 27 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   15

Any news on Tomb Raider 2 or the Spyro games for PSOne Classics?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:47 pm    

    Okay well, Tomb Raider 2 failed at QA, so that’s not going anywhere any time soon. Spyro also had some failure issues but we’re looking into them – these titles are obviously high priority for us so we’re trying to find a workaround.

and of course black ops map pack 3 for me tomoz but thts about it with the L.A noire avatars 🙂

thekeats1999 27 July, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   18

So when are we getting Warhammer 40,000 kill team?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:50 pm    

    You’d have to wait for THQ to tell you, I’m not allowed to announce dates not in the public domain.

magmar126 27 July, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   19

Still no news/information about SPELUNKER HD? 🙁

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:53 pm    

    Spelunker HD was pulled by the publisher from the previous release, but is currently scheduled for a August 10th release and should be involved in PS+

Ursinho 27 July, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   20

Discount all NFS:undercover DLC on finnish store also for BLES-450 (Finnish version), not just BLES-449 (Who knows what) as part of NFS campagn and i will buy!


Am I missing something or is Back To The Future Epidode 5 not on this list? The deal was 1 Episode released on a monthly basis which was around the middle of each month and now the last store update of the month and still no episode 5!!! This really has put me of buying staggered release titles.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:51 pm    

    I realise it hasn’t been ideal but we did have a big PSN outage in the middle of the release schedule that knocked everything else off kilter. Any future staggered releases should be much smoother. Of course you can always wait until the full series is available until you launch.

Shaggy2000 27 July, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   22

the new section 8 title looks pretty good, will have to give it a try.

Roxas598 27 July, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   23

No BTTF? but this is the last update of the month and it says releasing monthly. If I’m right that’s technical false advertising is it not? 🙁

Anything about Ape Escape aswell Ross?

psychobudgie 27 July, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   24

Where is BTTF Ep 5? It’s due today.

popandfresh7 27 July, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   25

Hey Ross how is it going? Just wondering is Spyro enter the dragon on your PSone list to be added to the PSN one day? if not please add it there 🙂

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:57 pm    

    It is of course on the list, but sadly as is the way with these things, the best and most popular titles seem to be the ones with the most problems. We are working on the Spyro titles and when I have an update I’ll let you know.

Chaosprower 27 July, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   26

Wow! Zero PSP games! So unexpected!

If at least one of those Disney offers was Kingdom Hearts…

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 2:59 pm    

    I’ve been trying to encourage the publishers to release more PSP titles digitally but often it’s not cost effective for them to do so – they have to get their development teams back in to convert them and the revenue they generate sometimes doesn’t cover the cost.

    If you’re after PSP content we have a MASSIVE PSP sale planned in August, so watch this space.

TheBigBoss0001 27 July, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   27

Any chance we will get the ‘Heart of Darkness’ or ‘Loaded’ PS1 Classics to the store?

darkhorus15 27 July, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   28

@#1: I agree Crash Bash should be a high priority, as should the Spyro Classics.

GraveDiggaUK 27 July, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   29

Any news on Back to the Future part 5. Been waiting weeks. Any E.T.A for it??? Good update

greekgoddj 27 July, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   30

Since you don’t read the comments lately, I will repeat what i said last week. Last week’s blog post said that Echochrome 2 Soundtrack was available on the store but it isn’t. Will it be on today? it has ONLY been several months since it was out in the US store.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 3:01 pm    

    I can’t comment on this I’m afraid, it has been held up for reasons outside of my control – it’s definitely still coming.


WKC2 – dlc please – when is it coming – its been more than a month since you stated an update was coming soon

also when does Sony intend to take steps to do something about the hacking of saves on WKC2 – photo documentation of the usage of hacks

also the Ar Tonelico dlc is STILL MISSING

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 4:35 pm    

    I’ve asked the Operation team to find out what happened to the Ar Tonelico DLC, they’ll instate it onto the Store as soon as they’re able.

    The WKC2 DLC release is being held up by Japan at the moemnt, at the time I spoke about it last the info I had was correct. I can’t give you an ETA at the moment but it’s all coming.

    As far as the hacking, I’m not the one to comment on that but I’ve passed your concerns on the the WKC product manager (the other Ross).


Sherbanator 27 July, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   32

Any news on the BRINK and Test Drive Unlimited 2 DLC?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 4:10 pm    

    I have no news on Test Drive DLC I’m afraid but the Brink DLC will be releasing from the 3rd August onwards.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   33

…Why is Dragon Age 2 Legacy DLC not listed?

trutenprower 27 July, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   34


It is not all about you. Stop being really obnoxious and selfish that only your interests matters. Crash Bash is in the queue to be released just wait for it. Games like Tombi, Suikoden, Resident Evil, Wild Arms and more are more requested by members. Be grateful your game is actually waiting to be published.

And Ross can you please look at the blog days after you have posted it to get some replies please? We haven’t been getting them a lot recently or we get blogs with very little replies to people’s questions. A good idea would be to hire someone to purely reply to comments and if they need some information they could pass it on to you and you could provide it with them.

And I support some more PS1 games getting released such as:

Poy Poy
Poy Poy 2
Suikoden II
Star Ocean 2
Pocket Fighter
Marvel vs Capcom
Fighting Force

There are others but I can’t think of any others right now.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 4:52 pm    

    Everyone’s opinion is absolutely valid – thank you for your list.
    Steps are being taken for multiple account holders to manage blog comments in future updates.

Hey Ross, how about doing something for your money?
Instead of wasting space by repeating the old sales list (which I still rate as crap, especially considering that they not only got the better but also new discounts each week in the US), you could invest some minutes and describe the new content.

Only thanks to the US blog I have an idea what those DLC packs for Dirt 3 really include.

Anways, another week with 0€ spent on the PSN Store. If you others should also feel the urge to spend some money for games, I suggest the new

Get 5 games and pay just whatever you want.
Good games, good price and it is for a good case (charity).
In other words: Entirely different to SCEE.

SebPrime 27 July, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   36

Still hoping for US PS1 classics. Mostly Xenogears and Parasite Eve 1


also when is the store going to be fixed when entering in from White Knight Chronicles – people want to purchase items but keep getting the error

error obtaining product list

kingcrowbaruk 27 July, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   38

What exactly is the problem with Modnation Racers PS3?

Licensing issues? Holding it back for PS Vita launch?

If I were the developers I would be very annoyed with the publisher (SCEE) holding back the game and losing sales for over 3 months.

So can I ask the store team to ask the publisher why they wont publish?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:02 pm    

    SCEE is the publisher in this instance.
    ModNation Racers should be publishing shortly with the promised Plus discount.

hammy78 27 July, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   39

Hi, I was just wondering, I have been a PS+ subscriber since the launch in Europe and just renewed my subscription today. But when I went to check how long I had available on the games I have gotten it still says that I have 32 days remaining, so does it take a while for the subscription to be updated, or do they not stack?

LazyBaker 27 July, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   40

Hey Ross! Just wondering if there’s any chance of the old PSone Harry Potter games making an appearance on the Store. My little brother recently started the books, and he watches the movie after he finishes each one. It would be great if he could get the full experience by playing each game also! I’m sure they would sell well in general, but I imagine licensing could be tough for them.

Any reply would be great, thanks.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:04 pm    

    I would think you are right about the licensing, these are EA owned so I can make the request for you, but ultimately it would be up to them.

teh__pwnerer 27 July, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   41

Any word on the Pink Knight dlc for Castle Crashers?
And will EU ever get Alundra?

Dante_Zero 27 July, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   42

wow, come on Ross just be honest you guys and girls at the SCEE store team just really arn’t trying anymore. Also allow me to thank you for taking the time out to respond to the 450 odd comments from last week it was most imformative to read your replys?

You know it really is insulting when a public rep can’t even be bothered to reply to people anymore.

Also were nearly in month 8 where is auditorium HD please.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:07 pm    

    Auditorium HD is in Stage 2 submission and awaiting a new build from the publisher for it to be able to enter QA.



Section 8 free to the first 1000 is unfair on those who work 9-5. I’ll be home for 6ish, do you think i have any chance of getting that?

Faithless_mr 27 July, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   44

I’ll just copy paste the comment I have been posting in the past weeks (five weeks in a row now lol), since I posted a suggestion and I’d appreciate some feedback (either positive or negative 😛 )

“This is a bold suggestion, and I doubt it would ever see the light of day, but it won’t hurt to give it a shot (also not sure if this is where I should be posting this suggestion, but if not, I’ll wait until the next week PSN update to repost)

I’d very much like to see a HD port of Rogue Galaxy (By Level 5 and SCJapan studios, published by SCE) (wikipedia article here:

I’m sure there are many rpg fans out there which would want to give this game a try, given it came out in the late days of the PS2 and it’s quite a rare game nowadays.

Thanks in advance!”

Bonus question: Any idea of when we’ll see Resident Evil 2, Tomb Raider II and Legend of Dragoon on the store? Thank you 😀

*Report Abuse to a Moderator*

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:10 pm    

    I’m afraid I have no say as to what does and doesn’t qualify for an HD remake but I will pass on your suggestion – if there is commercial potential for the title it would be considered.

    All the PSone titles you mentioned are in process but I do not have any release dates for them.

Salty_Snake 27 July, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   45

A new L.A. Noire case?
I didn’t think there’d be any others. Well, this has made my wednesday!

Just to make sure, it is covered by the Rockstar Pass, right?

Also, what happened to the Epic Game mini that was meant to be released last week? I was quite looking forward to that…

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:13 pm    

    One Epic Game should be available on the Store – I have just checked and it’s there.

    As far as I know, all LA Noire DLC is covered by the Rockstar pass.

vicheous 27 July, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   46

Lot’s of stuff for me today thanks for a great update 😉 Will help me get my mind off what happend here this weekend at least for a bit -Sad days-

BearyTeddieous 27 July, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   47

Hi, Ross! I just wanted to ask if you could tell me if any of these games have a chance of being next month’s free Plus PSN title, as I really wanna get them, but I’m afraid that right after I buy them they’ll be offered for free. xD [/paranoia]
Anyway, the games are Moon Diver, Strong Bad and Back to the Future.

Thank you! n.n

Also, it’s so weird and unholy seeing other people with Jecht avatars now. ;_;

Faithless_mr 27 July, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   48

Hi Ross,

Haven’t commeneted in a while. Just wandered if you could possibly answer the following 2 questions.

1) Is resident evil 4 and code veronica X HD both being released in europe on the same day as the US are getting it? the reason i’m asking is that the US have already had their date confirmed, but I can see nothing for us.

2) Also don’t suppose you know anything about Final Fantasy 10 & 12 HD possibly getting a release 🙂


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:22 pm    


    1) Well until Capcom announce I can’t say, but Capcom tend to be good about simultaneous releases. Unless we’re talking about avatars. Ahem.

    2) I don’t but I’m sure they’d be well received! I would drop them a note over on the Square-Enix community and make mention of this because ultimately they’d be the ones creating and publishing.


Hi Ross
2 questions:
1. Will Sony match Apple’s decision and offer price parity with US dollars for digital store content?
2. WKC2 DLC – when??


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:24 pm    

    Hello, I can’t comment on number one I’m afraid, I am a content manager and I can advise on pricing but I can’t enforce price parity.

    As for WKC2 DLC, as I mentioned previously we’ll be releasing this as soon as we receive appprovals for certain content from Japan.

TehPhilosopher 27 July, 2011 @ 1:46 pm   52

When is Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team released? Space Marine’s release date is getting closer, and I want to unlock the special weapon in it by playing Kill Team – and both games sound fantastic.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:25 pm    

    I can’t say with regard to a release for Kill Team but I agree both games look great, Space Marine is looking fantastic in my opinion.

Jimmirock 27 July, 2011 @ 1:47 pm   53

I haven’t bought a PSP game (therefore nothing on PSN :() for months now. Damn.

ChrisandJulie 27 July, 2011 @ 1:47 pm   54

Another rubbish update. No new PSP games. Still no sign of the latest Toy Story 3 psp dlc that NTSC got.

No new PSOne classics. No sale for psp owners.

Still no Secret Agent Clank, still no Virtua Tennis 3, still no Lego Indiana Jones 2, still no Lego Star Wars 2, still no Crash Tag Team racing, Still no worms open warfare 1 and 2, still no sega Outrun, still no Shrek the third, still no Scooby Doo, and on and on.

Same old, same old, week in and week out.

Zephon1 27 July, 2011 @ 1:47 pm   55

hey ross, 2 weeks ago i was forced to eat my cat cuz you didnt bring me any psone usa imports, you can still save the turtle this this week, so have a heart 😛

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:28 pm    

    Sit tight, there’s a lot of people looking into this within SCEE right now. Try not to eat your turtle, I can’t condone that.

Carnivius_Prime 27 July, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   56

Aw, still none of the SNK titles. I’d have bought lots of them but you ain’t got them this week either.

Dead Block is kinda fun even if zombie games ain’t my thing.

l_skynet_l 27 July, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   57

@1 You can get that game off ebay for about a fiver, even less. Its not a rare game. You may aswell do that instead of asking the same old question every week that never gets answered.

Falcon1991 27 July, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   58

Nice to see Test Yourself back, I’ve always been intrigued by psychology so I’ll be picking up those nice and cheap packs. 🙂

Also I’ll take a browse through the L.A. Noire avatars, I still need to pick up that gem. Been sporting Lady for a while, but may get my detective on. 😉

CrimsonSamurai 27 July, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   59

Hi, Ross glad to see the LA NOIR case up 🙂
Could you plese sort out the fact that BIONIC COMMANDO REARMED is still at the full preice and not at the reduced sale price of £6.29?


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:31 pm    

    Hello, I’ve just checked and Bionic Commando 2 is definitely at £6.29, I apologise if it wasn’t before.

acridweasel 27 July, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   60

Consul’s Car for LA Noire? Really?
Thought that was just for the US.
Great, if that is true…

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:32 pm    

    It was free in the US, unfortunately we didn’t manage that but we do have it in the EU now.

FatMachismo 27 July, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   61

Man there’s a lot of problems. Not a great update but there’s something for everyone I guess 🙂

I think I might try S8P. The first one had promise but didn’t quite live up to my expectations so this should be worth a shot 🙂

Also can’t look past BTTF season for 8 quid!

Crash Bash is massively overrated…please don’t waste resources putting it on the store 😉

Skitz001 27 July, 2011 @ 1:49 pm   62

Hey Ross,

I was just wondering if you have any sort of information/update on the status of a feature that would allow us to upgrade a sub-account (i.e. a child’s account) to a master-account? I know you are part of the store team and don’t directly deal with this sort of thing, but I don’t really know who else to ask, customer services have been no help in this regard, simply telling me to make a new account which is not an option due to the sheer amount of money I have spent on it and all of my save data/trophies.

There are so many of us that are frustrated beyond belief that we are now over 18 yet cannot have our own wallet and add our own funds, accept new terms and conditions without having to access the master account tied to that sub account, access Facebook, etc, etc.

Please respond to this comment, there are so many of us that are utterly desperate for this to be implemented into the PSN, which should have been there since the start really. 🙁 I appreciate any reply you can give me. 🙂


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:38 pm    

    Hello Skitz,

    I’m sorry but this is a wider PSN issue, which I have raised quite a few times with the relevant parties on behalf of consumers who comment here.
    I know that SCEI are aware of the request and it may be in action for a future date but all that happens way above me, but I am always happy to pass on feedback.


WOW!!! Another LA Noire case – amazing!!! 😀 That was certainly unexpected 🙂

Does it have trophies? Is it free with Rockstar Pass?


When are Marvel VS Capcom 3-avatars coming to Europe?

Sandsman 27 July, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   65

Spelunker HD and BTTF Episode 5 for me this week 😀

Eh? Where’d they go?

LieutenantFatman 27 July, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   66

Ross, could you find out if we could get warhammer shadow of the horned rat as a ps classic please? I’d really appreciate it. Thank you. 🙂

psychobudgie 27 July, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   67

Just read through fully and would like to know where Back to The Future Episode 5 is and Dragon Age 2 Legacy, both of which are meant to be released today and were released yesterday in the US. Of course I’d like to know, but I’d also like to fly to the moon as both are just as likely going by prior form on here.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:42 pm    

    Back to the Future Part 5 narrowly missed the publish this week but it’s on course for a release on August 3rd.

    Dragon Age II: Legacy has since launched and is available in the Latest section of the Store.


Good update but why is the NFS Hot Pursuit Three for All Bundle still much more expensive than buying the 3 included packs separately? BTTF at half price is a steal.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:43 pm    

    I would agree, but the price changes were supplied by EA, so that’s what we’ve implemented. If you want them all and it’s cheaper to get them separately, you should grab them separately!


ross la noire new case does that come under rockstar pass, where is back to the future 5, why can we not have one universal store the updates are getting worse every week 28th we was told for back to the future usa are enjoying it but were 2nd best again

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 1:52 pm   70

Yeah, where the heck is the DA 2 DLC? This console’s a joke! The US got it around midnight!

winkelwagentje 27 July, 2011 @ 1:54 pm   72

Strong Bad episode 4, which is in the Special Summer Sale, seems to be broken. The file is over 95mb, but it’s only downloading 86mb. When installing it gives an error at 14%. More people seem to have this problem.

Could you perhaps pass this to the right person, so they can look into this problem?

Many thanks

MadDogIRE 27 July, 2011 @ 1:54 pm   73

I just wanted to ask if like America last week, were selling Borderlands Deluxe Pack for $15 and i was fully expecting this side of the world to have it also till i sighed into my psn last week and found it wasn’t there, do you know if that offer will come out over here, thx.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:46 pm    

    Borderlands with all the DLC was on offer during the Spring Sale, hence we haven’t duplicated it this time.

Bealinator 27 July, 2011 @ 1:55 pm   74

Don’t usually feel this way, but here I go:

This is a [DELETED] update made worse by the fact that you will NOT respond to us and our points of concern.

Here is three (which won’t be answered):

1) Where the hell is Tombi?
2) Can you at SCEE please get your act together and get the pricing and sales much more competitive than it currently is? SCEA does it bang on – loads of offers that I would gladly snap up if I had a balance there.
3) Can you please hire a few extra people that can actually be arsed to leave a response? I am very, very tempted to translate my question into German and post it on the German page. That way I am more likely to get a response.

But wait for it…a lack of “see you in the comments!” crap that usually follows your updates probably suggests you won’t be back here till next Wednesday. Pathetic.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:54 pm    

    1) I’m not at liberty to discuss release dates for any content. Tombi is in process alongside the other PSone titles and will be released when it’s ready.

    2) The Summer Sale here is of at LEAST equal value and has far more content than the equivalent sale in SCEA.

    3) I apologise if you are annoyed at the lack of response from me recently, I think in a few days you’ll see why I’ve been so busy. Please bear in mind comments from staff members on the PlayStation blog are entirely discretionary and while you are used to recieving responses to your questions, and I like to provide them where possible, I do not have to do so if I’m working on a project that ultimately you are going to benefit from.

darkhorus15 27 July, 2011 @ 1:57 pm   75

@#60: The fact you find Crash Bash overrated doesn’t mean others do 😉

Hamusuta_SWE 27 July, 2011 @ 1:57 pm   76

Excuse me but I don’t see any new content, I would like to have my free section 8 and if I missed that out I be super [Deleted].

vrjk_wien 27 July, 2011 @ 1:57 pm   77

Borderlands + all DLC for a special low price and Bioshock 2 discounted dlc like the US got last week please….

*listens to sound of crickets chirping*

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:55 pm    

    You have ALREADY had sales on both of those items in recent times in SCEE.

Can anyone tell me when Chrono trigger will be available? Or even if it’s coming to the EU store at all?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 5:56 pm    

    Currently we are not able to provide NTSC only PSone titles on the EU PlayStation Store. Hopefully something will be done about that soon.

yeah were the hell is DA:2 new dlc. we better not have to wait another week america as other people have already got it. the EU PSN is getting to be a joke now compared with america’s PSN

zeeky94 27 July, 2011 @ 2:01 pm   82

Seriously!? No resident evil 2 STILL and No warhammer kill team STILL No Dragon age 2 DLC this is pathetic…

Tibiilicious 27 July, 2011 @ 2:02 pm   83

Any word on why Dragon Age 2 Legacy DLC is not listed ?.

p4zinho331 27 July, 2011 @ 2:02 pm   84

Two questions Ross if you’ve got time to answer comments this week.

RE: Section 8 Prejudice.

Why isn’t there a demo? or a trial & unlock even? £9.99 is lot of money to put down on something that can’t be tested beforehand, while the extras are appreciated, they’re all meaningless if you don’t like the basic game or say the basic game is an unplayable mess.

RE: Toy Story

Any news on a release date for the Toy Story 3 level kit for LBP2? I know you can’t give specifics but are we talking weeks or months?

Thanks in advance.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:00 pm    

    Section 8 Prejudice is definitely not an unplayable mess. Timegate wanted to reward early adopters with an early offer for those who were willing to take up the game from the get go. There are plenty of reviews of the title from the other platform so there’s plenty of opportunity to read up on the title. That said, i believe there are future plans for a demo, so if you’d rather wait then that’s also fine.

    As for the Toy Story DLC for LBP, if the pricing gets signed off in time then you will start to see it from next week.

@ MadDogIRE

Hell, I would have been happy if they’d have managed to offer Risk for the half price. Borderlands is far beyond the capabilities of SCEE, fore sure! 😉

Bealinator 27 July, 2011 @ 2:04 pm   86


I do not appreciate you (of all people) wanting a particular title to get special attention before the other hotly-requested classics.

Tombi has been demanded since 2009 (check the blog – I started it in February 2009 or thereabouts), I have heard no similar demands for Crash Bash.

That being said, I am never going to exactly post: “All games except Tombi are crap! Ignore them! Post my game! Now! LFMAO!!!!”. Though Tombi is probably the best game PS1 ever had (out of many, many, many classics), and I am getting tired of waiting, I am not going to want to upset somebody by demanding that other classics get set back.

Please show some bloody respect for those of us who want specific classics on the store.

And Ross, let me spell this out for you in simpletons language so that you (or someone else can notify you so that you can) respond to our points:


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:02 pm    

    Working on Crash Bash does not preclude working on Tombi. Why would it?


Hi Ross when does the update go live?
waiting for the Dirt3 pack and LA Noire, lol and sadly COD Black Ops Tomorrow LOL

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 2:05 pm   88

Come on, please respond about Kill Team and the missing DLC’s. Those concerns are legitimate as these are either already available on other platforms or in other countries!

What’s the point of your social media endeavours if you can’t maintain any 2-way communication?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:04 pm    

    If THQ haven’t announced the content, then neither can I, as I have stated countless times before on this blog.

    Dragon Age II Legacy is now live in the Latest section.

AllanB83 27 July, 2011 @ 2:05 pm   89

Does anyone know when the 5th episode of Back to the Future will be released? It has been a few weeks since episode 4.

DarkPumaDi3 27 July, 2011 @ 2:05 pm   90

Any chance of the PS1 title Team Buddies. PWEEEEEZ

freakwave82 27 July, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   91

I can only see the original Section 8 for sale in my store(and on front page too), everything in the description, including the “Copyright 2005-2010” text at the bottom, points to this being the original “Section 8”, and not the sequel.

Price in my PSN store is listed as 12,95 euros but on this blog, you say it’s 12,99 euros.

The game on my front page in store, is it “Section 8” or “Section 8 prejudice”?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:06 pm    

    You were looking pre-update, we had banner supported the original Section 8 previously.

    The pricing on your Store is €12.95 because you’re in Finland and all prices end with 5 on your store.

steveeire 27 July, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   92


Is there no Dragon Age II Legacy DLC?

Shou_Kobayashi 27 July, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   93


I asked THQ about that earlier that day, they said they had an announcement VERY SOON. Also they intend to release it worldwide.

I think it’s out by next week, also looking forward to it 🙂

MadDogIRE 27 July, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   94

@ Golwar
Was worth asking, was also my first post, and the more i look at msg’s here, sadly it looks like Europe is like a 3rd world country in comparison to the US psn…. But i’d still like to know if and when we could get a good offer like that Boprderlands + pk’s.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:08 pm    

    I can only offer in sales what the publisher gives me to offer – it would seem 2K in the US is more generous than 2K in the EU, but either way we’ve had a sale very recently on Borderlands AND the DLC.

Nazar_Ops 27 July, 2011 @ 2:07 pm   95

I got what i wanted last weekend. Nothing needed 🙂

MorbidPrincess 27 July, 2011 @ 2:08 pm   96

Can anybody tell me when we will be getting the Dragon Age 2: Legacy DLC?
Thank you.

Lucreto 27 July, 2011 @ 2:08 pm   97


Telltale never gave a release date for BttF episode 5 for Europe all they said was coming soon. It could be another 1 or 2 weeks before we get it.

BIOKILLER123 27 July, 2011 @ 2:08 pm   98

Meh update. That’s putting it nicely.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 2:09 pm   99

@MorbidPrincess – It should’ve been out NOW!

Shreder_m999 27 July, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   100

Are you kidding me? no Red Faction Armageddon DLC? -.-

Golwar 27 July, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   101

For the people asking for Castle Crasher’s Pink Knight DLC, you might enjoy (or not) this thread from the developer’s official forum:

My favorite replies:

“Sorry, you’ll have to wait for The Behemoth guys to submit it for us to release.”
From that Sony Eu blog.

well thats just not true. I suspect their blogger may not have all the information. 🙄

as I said a few posts up, we’re hard at work sorting out Pink Knight in EU. something mysterious and weird is going on, but we are pushing to get Pink out as soon as possible.

“Something mysterious and weird is going on” … I’ve never read a better describtion of SCEE. 😀

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:13 pm    

    As I said in the earlier comment, there are some issues on both side that we’re working through. Currently we’re waiting for the latest version of the code so we can get it into QA again.

laticspieman 27 July, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   102

Please try and get the ps1 spyro games on the store asap. I am seriously considering when I buy my ps vita to use an american account so I can play them. Do you really want to miss out on all the purchases i’m gnna make for my vita as I will be buying most of my games as downloads?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:14 pm    

    Hey we definitely don’t want to miss out on your purchases but we can only work through the issue so fast. Spyro has always been one of our top priorities when it comes to PSone and while it takes literally AGES to sort these things out we are working on it.

link1983 27 July, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   103


Where is BTTF Episode 5? It is available on the US store right now. 🙁 This is a disappointing week overall.

@skookie30 LOL, Bobby K is as you described, It’s why I don’t buy new Activision games. LOL.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:15 pm    

    Different submission process for the US I’m afraid and of course they don’t wait for us (I wouldn’t either)! But Episode 5 will be with you next week for sure.

Snozzlenut 27 July, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   104

Well there’s my plans for today down the drain. Where is Dragon Age Legacy DLC? And what happened to the days when people got some answers?

Wraxend 27 July, 2011 @ 2:11 pm   105

Hey does anybody know when we will be getting From Dust? I know Xbox will have it for a few weeks because of their Summer of Arcade just wondering what the delay is. Will it be like last year where we got Scott pilgrim 2 weeks before Xbox as both games are published by Ubi.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:17 pm    

    It’s on our schedule but you know what’s its like with Summer of Arcade, there will be a delay.
    That said, you have something to look forward to on Monday! Surprises await!

kosigan 27 July, 2011 @ 2:11 pm   106

NFS Hot Pursuit Game Modes Pack (Armed & Dangerous) (was £5.49/€6.99 – now £3.19/€3.99)
NFS Hot Pursuit Lamborghini Untamed Pack (was £5.49/€6.99 – now £3.19/€3.99)
NFS Hot Pursuit Porsche Unleashed Pack (was £5.49/€6.99 – now £3.19/€3.99)
NFS Hot Pursuit Three for All Bundle (was £15.99/€19.99 – now £13.99/€17.99)

Is this bundle price going to get fixed when it’s so clearly wrong?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:17 pm    

    It’s not wrong, it’s what I was supplied. I queried it with EA.

GOJCcc 27 July, 2011 @ 2:11 pm   107

Hey Ross what about Deadliest Warrior:Legends ??!?

EU store never got the first one(Deadliest Warrior:the game) and don’t tell me that we got [Deleted] again 🙁

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:19 pm    

    Yeah, I know it’s annoying, I don’t even know what happened with the first one. Have you found out from the publisher’s website if they have plans to release in Europe? I can also investigate on your behalf.

procion 27 July, 2011 @ 2:11 pm   108

Um regarding the Black Ops map being available on the 28th. It’s actually the 28th here in NZ now, has been for over an hour. Does you saying the Bo mappack being available on the 28th mean it will be going in at the usual hour that the store updates but a day later than the weekly update? Thanks

Hell-Raiser-85 27 July, 2011 @ 2:12 pm   109

Ross what time will bops map pack go live tomorrow? Thanks

@107: The EU Store goes by GMT i guess.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:19 pm    

    It does, yes. The Blops pack would have gone live at 9am GMT+1

GOJCcc 27 July, 2011 @ 2:13 pm   111

Hey Ross what about Deadliest Warrior:Legends ??!?

commuterzombie 27 July, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   112

I’d also like to know what’s happened to the Dragon 2 DLC, and a release date for Warhammer Killteam would be nice as well!

Guillemots 27 July, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   113

Nothing for me this week but i have a question:
Any news about “Amy” and “Dyad”. They’re still plan to release this summer?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:21 pm    

    Amy got pushed waaaay back I’m afraid, I think it’s looking like October but that’s not confirmed. No news on the other.

geddesmond2 27 July, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   114

Another week of pure ignorance from Sony? Whats that 3 or 4 weeks now where peoples questions went unanswered. What do they pay yous for. 3 or 4 blog entries a week that hardly anybody gives a rats about and they come with no replies to peoples questions.

WKC2 DLC, whats the deal will we be getting it before september or what. Its a simple answer to a question asked by someone who rarely asks questions. Is it really that hard to type a yes or a no. Seriously! anything is something.

shotgun_69 27 July, 2011 @ 2:17 pm   115

Marvel Vs Capcom 3 avatars? One of my American friends has had Deadpool as his avatar for months now and the hate is growing everyday.

rexel1 27 July, 2011 @ 2:18 pm   116

Nice update

Are we ever going to see the 2 PSP Syphon Filter games get a reduction in price? (Sale or permanent reduction)

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:22 pm    

    Glad there’s interest – we have a PSP Sale coming up in August.

Hae_jung 27 July, 2011 @ 2:20 pm   117

As far as the PSN classics go is there a chance we can get Mr. Driller in the nearest future? That would make me really happy.

vrjk_wien 27 July, 2011 @ 2:20 pm   118

Interestingly enough I asked about the Borderlands issue via the German blog and what do you know, my post was answered within 5 minutes! Unfortunately the Poster has no info about it but I am more than sure that SCEE can make it happen – if they want to. Oh and maybe they should also take a look at the german blog and see how posts are answered. Makes for way less frustrated users!

ryannumber3gamer 27 July, 2011 @ 2:21 pm   119

no offence but i think this store update is bad this week u just put up the list of the summer sales that was up last week and put a couple of new things in it. i got to say im disapointed i was hoping for back to the futuure the game episode 5 counting the usa has it already =(

xchris2008x 27 July, 2011 @ 2:21 pm   120

Better update this week, been waiting for the minigolf game for months but now its got to wait longer as i want the summer offers 1st 🙂

Szamal 27 July, 2011 @ 2:22 pm   121

what about is it available in europe?

Bealinator 27 July, 2011 @ 2:22 pm   122

Hey Ross,

Thanks for the responses. Gotta love them!

In case you ‘strike back’ – ETA on Tombi and various other classics? Give us an idea of how many are coming by the end of 2011.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:25 pm    

    Ah well at least this one wasn’t personally insulting.
    I can’t give an ETA on the PSones because they can get held up at literally any stage of the process, so I don’t want to commit to anything and then have you quote me about how I said this would be out then.

    That said, if everything went perfectly with the ones we have in process at the moment, you’d see about 10 from SCEE alone before the end of the year.

Rammstone 27 July, 2011 @ 2:24 pm   123

NFS Hot Pursuit Lamborghini Pack £3.19
NFS Hot Pursuit Porsche Unleashed Pack £3.19
NFS Hot Pursuit Armed & Dangerous £3.19

NFS Hot Pursuit Three for All Bundle £13.99

Can you please explain me the logic in this?

AaronSOLDIER 27 July, 2011 @ 2:25 pm   124

Still no Free Realms or Spyro.

grizla75 27 July, 2011 @ 2:27 pm   125

@cheeky4life, bealinator etc etc etc.

If you still SO into playing ps1 games, what the hell have you all done with your ps1’s and 2’s. You all seem to have your favourites, none of which were really very good.

How about giving us all a break and dusting off your old consoles or investing in one off e bay and take the onus off hounding Sony blog staff for your faves?

For the record i think ps3 facing much bigger issues than its available selection of ps1 titles. ha ha

HazelAM 27 July, 2011 @ 2:28 pm   126

4 brodiesan?
don’t be ridiculous, that’s ludicrously optimistic. ^_^

and finally, we find out anarchy: rush hour is apparently supposed to be £3.19.
just a shame there wasn’t anybody to tell us stuff like that, rather than making us wait a week, you know like somebody who’s job it is.
i wonder where we could find such a person.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:29 pm    

    Hey, while I get the point please never mistake what my job is. My job is not to come and speak to you all on here, the fact that I choose to do so on, let’s face it, MOST occassions over the past 12 months is because I like to try and keep you informed if I’m able.

GYSALM 27 July, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   127

if you know its gonna be a weak update get some trophy patches going for older games ie assasins creed 1 metal gear 4 lego star wars ninja gaiden 1

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:27 pm    

    Are you serious? I can’t get trophy patches for anything, I manage content that comes to the PSN Store.
    Any trophy patches are decided by the publishers and developers of the games in question.

kingcrowbaruk 27 July, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   128

Everyone should send their questions to

Maybe if their inbox fills up enough they might answer.

ColdZero2006 27 July, 2011 @ 2:31 pm   129

Nice update, Thanks Ross 😉

YritaEdes 27 July, 2011 @ 2:32 pm   130

Where is Warhammer 40’000: Kill Team or any idea when it’s released?

ani123 27 July, 2011 @ 2:35 pm   131

I’m a bit disappointed BTTF Episode 5 isn’t available today considering 3 weeks ago Ross said “It should arrive in the next couple of weeks.” If you don’t know when it’s going to be available don’t say anything at all.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:31 pm    

    Hey, when you asked me, what I said was right – digital release dates move around more often than people who live in mobile homes!
    The game is now definitely out on August 3rd, barring act of God.

RedeyeCult 27 July, 2011 @ 2:40 pm   132


Avatar_Crono 27 July, 2011 @ 2:48 pm   133

So once again, does anyone have any idea why ONLY NZ isn’t getting the Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 DLC? Is this koei’s fault as DW7 isn’t available in NZ either… Again I reiterate I saw a banner for DWG3 DLC in store a couple of weeks ago and now it’s not there, so was the DLC even planned for NZ and the upper people decided no and changed their minds for us down in NZ >_< WHY?!?!

MegaGeeza22 27 July, 2011 @ 2:49 pm   134

Why is everyone asking for PS1 games??? you could buy a Playstation 1 online with 100 games for £50… but you all want to buy a single game for £7.99… why?
If you rate these old PS1 games so highly why did you get rid of them?
Let sony look to the future! and buy “Crash Bash” online for 50p

divine1000 27 July, 2011 @ 2:50 pm   135

Any news regarding the Beyond Good & Evil avatars?

MoneyMarko 27 July, 2011 @ 2:52 pm   136

Rubbish update, sony seems to be going downhill! 🙁

CassyChan 27 July, 2011 @ 2:55 pm   137

£11.49 for camper friendly maps and another lackluster Zombie map that unlike the WaW maps focuses more on size, aesthetics and gimmicks than actually good map design? I can’t believe people throw more money at this **** as the quality gets worse and worse.

And only £1.99 for the Homefront map pack? That seems very cheap, has the community for it died already?

vonhammer 27 July, 2011 @ 2:55 pm   138

Wait no demo for S8P? lol,good luck with that.
I’m at the point were i’ll buy very few DD games without a demo,Trine 2 and journey are the only ones.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:34 pm    

    I believe there’s a demo coming later, but then you wouldn’t get the DLC offer of course.

SA_Royal 27 July, 2011 @ 2:57 pm   139

Just like post no 1 said we want Crash Bash please this is really a psone classic.

dsl278 27 July, 2011 @ 2:57 pm   140

Life was so much more fun when the PSN was down… at least then you knew you wouldn’t have to wait all week just to get disappointed come Wednesday update!

SonicAlpha 27 July, 2011 @ 2:57 pm   141

Picked up Section 8 Prejudice, was expecting it to be a little more expensive (as the price was listed on the US blog), bargain! 🙂

Doubt I’ll get the first game for free though :/

magdix5 27 July, 2011 @ 3:03 pm   142

sony sucks lately.
every update is crap (except the LIMBO maybe)
learn from app store, where many of games are way better than your stupid minis !!
who need crappy old conversions of psone games or minis !
seriously thinkin about selling my ps3

BloodMountain88 27 July, 2011 @ 3:04 pm   143

Not expecting an answer, but no harm in trying – any news on when Galaga Legions DX is being released on the Store?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:36 pm    

    Er… yes I know when it’s releasing and it’s not a million miles away but I’m not able to tell you exact dates. Sorry.

Labreya 27 July, 2011 @ 3:05 pm   144

I dunno why people comment anymore. It’s pretty clear SCEE don’t care. Most of the issues people want fixed have been around forever.

Hell, most of us are still waiting on the promised fraud protection.

Save your breath for people who care, and stop giving these failures at business management your time or money. They deserve neither at this stage.

procion 27 July, 2011 @ 3:06 pm   145

@ Bealinator comment # 125:
lol funny

Shift_Breaker 27 July, 2011 @ 3:06 pm   146

Hmm, so the store’s updated, but the new L.A. Noire case hasn’t shown up, just the avatars. What’s up with that?

Labreya 27 July, 2011 @ 3:07 pm   147

@ Shift_Breaker

Don’t hold your breath. They probably screwed it up.

chrisandsheva 27 July, 2011 @ 3:08 pm   148

I Must commend you this week @Ross, it is @Ross innit, anyway i like the way you’ve stopped making excuses about needing to be in this meeting or that then breaking your promise about answering ‘loads’ of comments afterwards etc, This way is far better, in that you say nothing about why your blanking us and just do it, …. it’s a small step in the right direction at last, i am bieng totally serious here, I mean the feelings i’m getting right now about not bieng taken for a idiot no longer are brilliant, Please keep up this new way and maybe in a couple of years you could restore our faith in you guy’s.

mike20036 27 July, 2011 @ 3:12 pm   149

Nice update just picked up section 8 prejudice and long with dirt 3 X Games Asia Track Pack.

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 3:17 pm   153

So, any official comment on Mortal Kombat DLC completely disappearing from Russian PS store? And don’t tell me it’s Warner Brothers, DLC are available in Russian XBLA.

deny_conformity 27 July, 2011 @ 3:20 pm   154

I’m a plus member, bought Section 8: Prejudice at 15:06 (according to the email receipt), did I miss out on the free Section 8?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:38 pm    

    Ho back and read about the terms of the offer again – the game is not delivered to you right away.

valleys_boy 27 July, 2011 @ 3:21 pm   155

Still no kill team?? Come on you’re well behind on the xbox release and it was listed as released on the PS3 in the US on the 26th July!!

geddesmond2 27 July, 2011 @ 3:24 pm   156

Lol came back to see if there was any replies and I read a lot of peoples comments. Its as if Sony want us to dislike them. After all ignorance is the first steps to hatred and after that PSN fiasco a few months back you’d think Sony would do anything to ease there customers instead of [DELETED] them off.

It was one thing how their welcome back package only rewarded people who don’t buy Sony games and it was another thing how they took so long telling people their details were hacked but this is taking the [DELETED] now. Our only gateway to information from Sony about their games is on this blog and they refuse to answer our questions lol and when they do answer our question they are cleverly answered in a way that don’t actually answer your question.

I mean its understandable questions about unannounced or secretive material gets dodged but dodging questions based on games and DLC we know exist its making fools out of us.

yoyo-1414 27 July, 2011 @ 3:25 pm   157

does deadliest warriors coming to europe too? if it does when?

LCT1709 27 July, 2011 @ 3:29 pm   158

It is starting to concern me that their has been a complete lack of response from Sony over the last 2 psn store updates. This has been totally lack of respect for your consumers (although there are many just complaining just for the hell of it) and at a time when you need to improve your consumers confidence after the hacking fiasco.

I was also wondering whether the Sam and max episode 1 been fixed yet but not holding my breath that I’m even gonna be getting a response to this question.

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 3:30 pm   159

Deadliest Warrior is published by Spike TV which means not a chance of it coming here. US exclusive forever.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 3:32 pm   160

Good to know that Sony, especially in the EU, cannot be relied upon to deliver any digital content in a timely manner. And I thought Valve was bad, but this is just ridicolous.

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 3:33 pm   161

i don´t get howcome our update got worse after Ross took over can we get mike back atleast he responded 2 question we still missing content from a year back

where are the NIS avatars america got a year back
deadliest warriors the game
auditoruim HD
and i can´t believe we still have 2 ask for
Resident evil 2-3
castlevania and all the other missing ps1 games like the jap imports i really hope you guys get fired cause it really looks like your not even taking your job serious with zero replies your a joke
go get some lessons from the americans store team they seem 2 do wonders for those gamers

HWen’s everybody’s holiday period? Would it be reasonable to assume that any AAA-content such as the DA2 DLC and Kill-Team wouldn’t be better off being released NOW rather than in August when most folks have returned to work?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:40 pm    

    I’m afraid we can’t release Kill Team until THQ say it’s okay. Dragon Age 2 Legacy is out now.

GYSALM 27 July, 2011 @ 3:33 pm   163

no la noire in shop at all wheres this case

psychobudgie 27 July, 2011 @ 3:34 pm   164

@deny_conformity it was never confirmed as far as I know as to whether it was 1000 free copies per region or in total. If it is the latter you have no chance as the US got it around 24 hours ago.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:41 pm    

    It was 1000 copies per region, as you quite rightly say it would hardly be fair otherwise.

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 3:35 pm   165

@all gamers

stop buying stuff from europe psn till they take us seriously
with zero new psp games and hardly any new games or even any old one´s,SCEE isen´t worth the money 2 spend on

hastings69 27 July, 2011 @ 3:38 pm   166

what a crap update.

where’s DA2 legacy or W40k Kill Team which has been on 360 for a while already????

A-jizzel08 27 July, 2011 @ 3:38 pm   167

Hey Ross,

Can you find out whats going on with the dragon age 2 DLC Please that would be great!

steve_shin 27 July, 2011 @ 3:38 pm   168

Hi Ross,

Do have an update on a release date for Amy?


    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:42 pm    

    I’m sorry, there’s no official release date yet at all, it was pushed back.

Merkkari63 27 July, 2011 @ 3:38 pm   169

I’m a little confused because in the news letter it said that Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood would be coming this week. It’s already up on the US store.

chrisandsheva 27 July, 2011 @ 3:39 pm   170

@YOYO-1414 i got the demo for that earlier and it’s looking quite good, but as for it coming here i would’nt expect it, did we even get the 1st one yet, (the new demo looks well better than 1st) mind you i could probably be able to get it on the …. X (better store) Box, but will wait for a bit just in case.

A_Red_Banana 27 July, 2011 @ 3:40 pm   171

£11.50? For a Call od Duty map pack? Hahahahaha! That is just ridiculous…

biotec 27 July, 2011 @ 3:40 pm   172

Can u please stop using the “1st 1000 to download” thing. We all pay the same for Plus so why should the people who have jobs and lifes outside of playstation have no chance of getting these offers. Its impossible for me to get home and download anything before 1000 people do, so I am losing out for no fault of my own. This for me is the only thing wrong with Plus, I use it for Cloud Saving, and secondly betas, which is one thing that usually has that limitation.

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 3:41 pm   173

@dgnfly: This means I will have to buy 360, which is a worse console. Hell, it’s just preposterous, after hack fiasko they offer service so pathetic you start considering buying inferior system because that other system comes with actual service which is not garbage.
Did I already mention that all MK DLC disappeared from Russian PS store? And it seems it’s Sony’s fault, Russian XBLA has all MK DLC.

FrozenWolf87 27 July, 2011 @ 3:44 pm   174

Hey Ross
Any chance we will see Harvest Moon: Back to Nature, Evil Zone and Jade Cocoon as PS1 Classics on the store?

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 3:44 pm   175


the reason most likely why the mk DLC is gone is cause SCEE coulden´t care less about your country same goes for mine our countries ain´t giving em enough money so they just ignore us if something goes missing or if something is wrong
we still missing content U.K has including service´s

GREGGY-BOY- 27 July, 2011 @ 3:44 pm   176

Unify all PS Stores. Xbox does it why cant Playstation? Theres no excuse.

Where’s this PS One blog post u were talking about before the hack situation? more disney!

scottad 27 July, 2011 @ 3:45 pm   177

LA Noire
“The Consul’s Car” Traffic Case (£3.19/€3.99)

This wasn’t showing on the store so i used the search function when i found it i get a message saying this content cannot be accessed on my account. Also is this included in the rockstar pass?

JonnyPauz 27 July, 2011 @ 3:45 pm   178

@Ross is there another “Sam & Max” in the works??? its buy far the best game we have got so far on PS+, I will definitely buy the next one.

Also you should bring “Zombies Ate My Neighbours” to the PSN, its one of my all time favourite games and when I mention this to people they agree and I think it would sell well.

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 3:49 pm   179


the excuse is GREED i think cause now they have 2 upload 2 multiple servers so game developers have 2 pay per region if they made it one Sony woulden´t get enough money so it´s just Greed

diehard3 27 July, 2011 @ 3:51 pm   180

Yh wheres Back to the future episode 5??

blaizer1988 27 July, 2011 @ 3:53 pm   181

@scottad Same problem here, I can find the case when I search for it but as soon as I try to access the page of the case, it just says that I don’t have permission on my account to see it.

Skookie30 27 July, 2011 @ 3:53 pm   182

@dgnfly what are the chances of they reply to that post you put. lol 😀

brucewillis215 27 July, 2011 @ 3:55 pm   183

hey when will i get section 8 i bought it just when the store was updated soo i am pretty sure i should get the e-mail with section 8 can u tell me when it should get too me

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:44 pm    

    It will be a while yet I’m afraid, please check the terms of the offer. Good luck!

still no brink agents of change grrrr!!!. & for bttf wats happing with it?. spent £15 on something that seems to take 4ever to come out. Might be out b4 im 90…. cmon sony get yer fingers out….. 🙁

Jesse-Blue 27 July, 2011 @ 4:01 pm   186

Sony should really try to invent some “Summer of Arcade” program as well.
PSN store updates are pretty weak lately. And that at the same time while there is only a few disk releases as well.

Meanwhile M§ is having great games out every week while the best thing PSN got in weeks is an 1 year old port from the 360!!
And even the rest is mostly old news (or same release date) for 360.
That is not good.

Sorry for the harsh words, I am not usually one to criticise all the time, but this annoys me a bit the last few weeks already.

That being said, I know there is great stuff like Journey on the horizon, but that is not now.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:45 pm    

    I think you should come back on Monday. I think you’ll be interested.

AMDM-61 27 July, 2011 @ 4:04 pm   187

Ok i got got ownd by store 🙁 Bought wrong Section 8 because store wasn’t updated. 🙁

Scottboro 27 July, 2011 @ 4:06 pm   188

I want Dragon Age II Legacy, Xbox got it yesterday, PlayStation Store US got it yesterday. I don’t blame the blog posters, but they could at least give us a reason why what we want isn’t there when it should be.

mufc4eva1989 27 July, 2011 @ 4:07 pm   189

Regarding the L.A Noire DLC case, I bought the L.A noire pass ages ago and the new case isnt there. Then i went onto my dads account where the pass wasnt bought and the new DLC case was there! strange

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 4:07 pm   190

@Lord gremlin

read my reply 2 GREGGY-BOY- and you´ll understand why multiple server and´s on page 4


they never rply 2 my comment cause they know i´m right atleast with you could have some fun even if i posted back comments

Bovrillor 27 July, 2011 @ 4:08 pm   191

Fallout stuff is SO overpriced.

A couple of weeks ago Steam were selling New Vegas + the first 2 DLCs for £12. Come on Sony, sort it out!

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 4:08 pm   192

i meant bad comments

GYSALM 27 July, 2011 @ 4:08 pm   193

the consuls car was your saving grace today and i cant download it xbox here i come

ROBERTWARNES 27 July, 2011 @ 4:08 pm   194

Hey Ross, Modnation Racers (PSP) and LittleBigPlanet (PSP) aren’t listed on the Australian PSN store when accessed via a PS3. Could you fix this please 🙂

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:48 pm    

    I’ve forwarded that on to the Ops team for them to take a look at. Thanks for the heads up.

alc_the_talc 27 July, 2011 @ 4:09 pm   195

@207 So there is a new case, that wasn’t a typo or anything?

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 4:11 pm   196

@Scottboro: Dragon Age II Legacy released on US PSN has a fatal bug which makes it impossible to complete the final boss. Maybe this has something to do with something…

mufc4eva1989 27 July, 2011 @ 4:11 pm   197

@213 yeah there is a new case, but it only shows on the account which hasnt bought the pass which is weird

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:50 pm    

    I’m having that looked in to – there might be an issue with the entitlement.

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 4:13 pm   198

@dgnfly: That’s a bit too much greed on Sony part then. They managed to out-greed Microsoft. So far only drug-dealers and Satan managed that.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 4:13 pm   199

@Lord_Gremlin, yeah but apparently there’s alot of other DLC missing too?

Not to mention the elusive Kill-Team. But hey, we got LIMBO! And just for Sony’s sake I’m going to try and pretend I didn’t already play that in my browser about 6-ish months ago.


Shift_Breaker 27 July, 2011 @ 4:14 pm   201

@207 I’ve got the exact same problem. One account without the rockstar pass shows it, one with the pass doesn’t. That’s a problem that needs fixing. Maybe it’s meant to be free with the pass too, but they just messed it up and it doesn’t show at all.

oO-x_HeNoC_x-Oo 27 July, 2011 @ 4:20 pm   202

Marvel Vs Capcom 3 avatars???

oO-x_HeNoC_x-Oo 27 July, 2011 @ 4:23 pm   203

Marvel Vs Capcom 3 avatars? RESIDENT EVIL avatars??

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 4:23 pm   204

@dial_595: Sure, a lot of DLC is missing. Some intentionally (Saints Row 2), others (Bulletstorm Gun Sonata) are bugged. PS store was a bad and barebone service to begin with, especially in my country, but we had no XBLA so.. No choice, really. Either PS3, or Wii with sub-HD graphics + overpriced. Now.. I just need to accept it and move to xbox. Mortal Kombat DLC is unforgivable.
Forget Kill Team, developers are still haven’t finished PS3 version. I’m talking about basic stuff. Stuff, that is released on PS store in US and UK and on XBLA everywhere. Only this, most basic stuff. I’m seriously getting fed up with Sony’s arrogance. Also, had my bank card compromised and re-issued because of them…

Ursinho 27 July, 2011 @ 4:25 pm   205

@freakwave82 We do not nickle-and-dime in Finland (no 1c and 2c coins). Sony respects that hence everything at our store is 4c cheaper (.x5 instead of .x9) except on plus section (go figure that one out). So dont freak about it 😉

Sir_Sorrows 27 July, 2011 @ 4:27 pm   206

So we’re not getting Dragon Age II Legacy, even though America has it on their store and of course it’s on XBL Marketplace here. Thanks, it feels so good to buy games on PS3 and get screwed over.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 4:27 pm   207

@Lord_Gremlin – according to the Kill-Team devs as of 6hrs ago the game is still in submission w Sony. Seeing the empty room that is AAA-content on PSN you’d think they’d step it up a bit. 🙂

Yeah, I’m happy I used an electronic bank card instead of my real one on PSN…

CoolRichy008UK 27 July, 2011 @ 4:30 pm   208

james or whoever just bought the special seciton 8 follow up and i dont see my free original i hope i int waisted 9.99 for nothing!

Rammstone 27 July, 2011 @ 4:32 pm   209


You need to read the rules for it. You will have the voucher code sent to your mail if you have accepted Sony to send you offers under account management.

Hustle_X 27 July, 2011 @ 4:34 pm   210

I think we should all change our account avatars to the red angry face, that way if Ross ever does even glimpse at the blog again he doesn’t even need to read anything because there will be a sea of red angry faces to get the message across 😛 !

Wollan 27 July, 2011 @ 4:34 pm   211

Where is Move.Me?

ssorc_bro 27 July, 2011 @ 4:38 pm   212

Eh, no THQ sale like the US ?! 🙁

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:54 pm    

    We’ve got one coming, we’re still doing our Summer Sale at the moment.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 4:43 pm   213

You’d think that it would make sense for one of the biggest corporations in the world to have daily or bi-daily updates…

liamrudel 27 July, 2011 @ 4:44 pm   214

I’d also like to know when Move.Me is coming to Europe?

ocelot07 27 July, 2011 @ 4:47 pm   215

@cheeky4life there is a damn reason why Crash crappy bash is not on the store. No one bloody wants it but you. Stop asking for Crash Bash. If you really want it go on ebay and buy the PSone disc its only a few pound.

Got to be the most selfish person in the whole Playstation community.

night64448 27 July, 2011 @ 4:47 pm   216

Bought Section 8 : Prejudice, after falling in love with the trailer.

Am I one of the lucky 1 000 ? We’ll see 🙂

Sizzon 27 July, 2011 @ 4:51 pm   217

Maybe respond and answer peoples questions?

Scottboro 27 July, 2011 @ 4:59 pm   218

Maybe this will help

Eurogamer contacted Dragon Age 2 publisher EA for comment. A representative told us “it’s an issue with Sony with a delay in updating the Store”

deny_conformity 27 July, 2011 @ 5:00 pm   219

From the official Section 8: Prejudice forums:

“The first 1000 PlayStation Plus members who purchase Section 8: Prejudice will receive the first Section 8 game for free. The game will not be given instantly, however. I have been told Sony will send out an e-mail voucher for it by the end of August.”

It was posted by one of the community support people so guess that answers the question we have 😛

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 6:56 pm    

    I would say it’ll probably be the very beginning of September, but yes, you may get it beforehand.

steveeire 27 July, 2011 @ 5:09 pm   220

So Sony hate Europe

Ti_dus 27 July, 2011 @ 5:17 pm   221

Ross, LA Noire’ new case doesnt show up if you bought Rockstar Pass 🙁

Shikome 27 July, 2011 @ 5:21 pm   222

Oh look. Another update with half the content of the US. What a suprise.

Artemisthemp 27 July, 2011 @ 5:21 pm   223

Dragon age 2 Legacy Dlc is missing

The_Fallen01 27 July, 2011 @ 5:21 pm   224

so sony hate the Eu and the people how run this blog are lazy *****.
they haven’t brought out anything thats out on the america’s PSN store and they haven’t replied to any comments. this is just the kind of things that make people want to switch to Xbox. they accually get things on the day there out not like sony ps3.
LAZY *****

I have a question:
Is it possible to buy stuf from both scee and scea?
I mean,if I make a second acount and make it a USA acount so I can acces the USA store,and I get a american voucher code, is it possible then?
cause,I made a second acount and wanted to make a new playstation network acount(since it is not possible to use your same networkacount from your first acount?)
But then you had to fill in your adres,ofcourse Idont live in USA so what now?
search for a random adres and fill that in? is that possible?

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 5:24 pm   226

considering that this blog is a joke why not make a game out off it
LET´S DO GUESS HOW MANY REPLIES THIS WEEK- ALRIGHT I´ll go first let´s start with zero replies this week

bubbeld 27 July, 2011 @ 5:29 pm   227

when comes assassin’s creed brotherhood in the store ?

Bealinator 27 July, 2011 @ 5:30 pm   228

My ‘top five’ points (after I have now cooled down. In the sun.):

1) Price Parity – this was a point very well made by another poster and it is bloody common sense. $15 does not equal £11.49 (as in the case of COD DLC). I just went on Google converter and that $15 = £9 in GBP. What. A. Rip. Off.

2) Tombi. Resident Evil 2 and 3. Etc, etc. ETA. Now.

3) Sales – perhaps borrow a leaf from the USA’s book and offer very good content and sales to match. We in the UK are not afraid of competition, so why not shove out content at good prices?

4) Prove you have balls – tell publishers that if they don’t knock down their prices you will refuse to publish their content, costing them millions of pounds of potential sales.

5) Time-based discounts – old content (especially DLC) should come down in price over time so that people will actually buy it. I would not buy Fallout 3 DLC at £7.99 if I could buy it on the PC on Steam for £3.99. Get it sorted.

And a poor, poor update this week.

Bealinator 27 July, 2011 @ 5:31 pm   229


I concur – a big fat ZERO responses.

In fact, let’s have a second element to this game. What is Ross doing right now?

I wager he is liasing with a lady of the night.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:00 pm    

    And back to the personal insults. Excellent.
    I would be very careful what you commit to text in a public forum if you don’t want a visit from my legal representative.
    Additionally, you will find out why I’ve been so busy very shortly.

Shikome 27 July, 2011 @ 5:34 pm   230

“considering that this blog is a joke why not make a game out off it
LET´S DO GUESS HOW MANY REPLIES THIS WEEK- ALRIGHT I´ll go first let´s start with zero replies this week”

I don’t think this game will catch on… I mean its like making a bet on which direction the sun will rise tomorrow…

Skookie30 27 July, 2011 @ 5:35 pm   231

@sjw17 yes you can but it a hassle to go about getting SCEA psn cards online or with paypal with the Ps3 browser so What is the answer.

i Dont find James.T response acceptable saying we can’t and SCEA can. just give us the F-ing imports YOU PROMISE. 😐


just spoken at length to playstation support, re: back to the future episode 5, plus asked about why Ross is not replying to anyone’s questions, and I’m told that the UK blog is for information only, there is apparently no requirement to reply to any of our questions ?
When informed that other overseas blogs do take the time and trouble to respond to people who pay the wages of folk like our Ross, I’m told again that our blogg is a simple read only source of information, again being told more than once there are too many questions to answer?
If this is true, why bother having this option available ?
I think the only way we can be treated fairly is for all of us to boycott the UK PSN store, hit them where it hurts, cash flow!

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:05 pm    

    Can you all just put this into perspective for a moment?

    There is no requirement for me to come on here and talk to you, I choose to do it as often as I can, because I feel like I should. The guys in the outlying territories get their info from us, in fact often ME specifically, via email and I do what I can to disseminate information.

    If I’m running around the countryside trying to make the PSN Store a better place for you, wouldn’t you rather I spend my time doing that?

    I’m sorry if you’ve not had the amount of communication to which you’ve become accustomed recently, you will see why very soon.

Bealinator 27 July, 2011 @ 5:36 pm   233


I do not recall breaking into a fit/frenzy over my love for Tombi.

And if you suggest it isn’t very good…you are a nutter. No offence.

I did have it, yes, but I misplaced it. Apologies for that. Happens sometimes. Not very nice when it doesn, but it did.

Oh yes,


trutenprower 27 July, 2011 @ 5:43 pm   234


You’d think that after the horror that was the PSN hack that Sony would properly start to actually listen and respond to their customers. The Europe team really needs to get someone on the Store team so that Ross isn’t the only one who can respond to comments because lately we are completely not getting any answers or responses at all and its this that is still creating a very bad customer service image for Sony.

Alawii_95 27 July, 2011 @ 5:44 pm   235

NO Resident Evil 2 , 3

Skookie30 27 July, 2011 @ 5:47 pm   238

@zrerz i wouldn’t take that what they said with a piece of salt More lies if that was the case why is devs,Mike kebby, James.T james.G Been doing in the past year months lol.

They don’t know F- ALL i got to laugh though.


grizla75 27 July, 2011 @ 5:47 pm   239


Just check your last but one post, point 2: tombi NOW.

How does this attitude differ from our good friend cheeky4life’s equally eloquent Crash Bash NOW appeals?

Apologies in advance but although i have seen the term Troll used on this blog, i have no idea what it means. Is it some sort of derogatory slang term perchance? lol

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 5:50 pm   240


you fool you doubt my wisedom i´m the guy who predicted that the store would suck the last 4 years muahahhaahha and they all said i was mad

ani123 27 July, 2011 @ 5:50 pm   241


Did they give you any info about BTTF Episode 5?

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 5:52 pm   242


if they told ya the blog is simply for information they must be insane cause it took em 5 days 2 inform us they got hacked and still no identity protection plan for most countries

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 5:53 pm   243

@trutenprower: You see, responses don’t really matter. PS store is garbage – fact. No refunds for mistakingly overpriced things like first MK DLC – fact (although we’ve been lied to about this). Missing DLC, all content at least 1 day XBLA exclusive – fact. No response can change that, hence no responses. What would they say? “You mindless dogs will buy any garbage and say thanks, now shut up”.
So, yeah, consider this an official response.

I still can’t find 360 controller with symmetrical sticks, hence stuck with PS3. This razor hydra thing I’ve been advised on this blog has asymmetric sticks… I’m so sick of PS store…

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:07 pm    

    Well, that refund is definitely coming, so you’re wrong about that second ‘fact’ for a start.

GYSALM 27 July, 2011 @ 6:04 pm   244

on the phone to sony now about la noire case


@242 no, nothing known about any release date for bttf, nor anything else!
I agree after what happened re hacking, I would have expected 100% better from SCEE , nothing looks likely to change though, as long as we continue buying from them.
Right now, I’m seriously considering my options, gaming wise.

ShoaibO 27 July, 2011 @ 6:05 pm   246

BttF episode 5?

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 6:06 pm   247

WOuld you tell them we KNOW that Bioware’s after their hides as well and that they need to get their act together, seriously? I would wager they are somewhat dependent on publishers actually being interested in developing content for their console only so long as they can actually release it to make money.

Shikome 27 July, 2011 @ 6:07 pm   248

“I still can’t find 360 controller with symmetrical sticks, hence stuck with PS3. This razor hydra thing I’ve been advised on this blog has asymmetric sticks… I’m so sick of PS store…”

I doubt I’m allowed to link a product for a rival console here, but google “PS3 to 360 controller adapter” and there are several options available to allow you to use a PS3 controller on the 360.

Breathtaking 27 July, 2011 @ 6:07 pm   249

EU PS Store = Fail as usual. Where is the sideswipe dlc? You’re better off telling Activison not to bother releasing it anymore. Transformers DoTM doesn’t have a lot of online players, so this dlc would have at least made EU players more interested in playing it more.

Carry on bowing your heads to the US like you always do.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:08 pm    

    The Sideswipe DLC released last week, it’s available from the Transformers in-game store.

bob24_86 27 July, 2011 @ 6:13 pm   250

Something I found on Rockstar Support website about Consul’s Car case

Consul’s Car case not showing up as owned for R* Pass owners

Rockstar Support
posted this on Jul-26 19:50
Question: I bought the R* Pass but the Consul’s Car case is showing up with a price as if I don’t already own it. Is this case included in the Rockstar Pass?

Answer: The Consul’s Car case is not included in the Rockstar Pass, and is a special exclusive which can be purchased in the PSN Store as of July 26, 2011.

Also when i click on it aswell it says i cannot access it to view it

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:09 pm    

    Ah ha, okay well it would seem it’s not included in the Rockstar pass then, however you should still definitely be able to purchase it. This is being looked in to.

I don’t even see the Consul’s Car case, but that’s very poor if it’s not included in the pass.

KillaT2501 27 July, 2011 @ 6:17 pm   252

Why don’t we have a monthly update that is actually good, rather than week after week of boring, expensive and mediocre content?

The people that come to these boards all the time are your biggest fan’s Sony EU. We love Playstation. WE WANT TO GIVE YOU OUR MONEY WILLINGLY. We love Playstation so much that we take time out of our days to check on what we can give you our money for. With every broken promise (PS1 list), lack luster update, or bit of misinformation you give us you are pushing us further and further away, eventually we won’t come back to the boards and you’ll be stuck with just one person requesting “Crash Bash” over and over again.

We are a community built around your past glories and I hope to one day be a proud owner of a Playstation 3 again, rather than a guy with a big warm curved black box in the corner over there.

asparagus_hunter 27 July, 2011 @ 6:18 pm   253

Ross, if you get round to reading this:

a) Why is there a gaping hole of information when items that we are all expecting from publishers don’t appear on the store?

b) Why is there a smaller, but still substantial, hole of information when items that you have said will be on the store don’t appear?

c) You did mention you wanted to do a PSOne classic blog sometime in February. Ok, this may not have been OK-ed, but please tell us, just to stop people in the comments every week whining about it.

d) I appreciate there may be more to your job than reading and replying to the blog. However, when there are a lot of questions, don’t you think it’s worth replying to at least a few?

e) The US-UK pricing system needs to be sorted out, as does pricing in general. I understand that a lot of this is publisher pressure, but other distributors (Steam, XBLA) manage to get better prices than us on the same material. It doesn’t add up.

f) Please ignore the crazy people using incessant capitals and making idle threats. These people do not speak for the majority.

Whether this is read or not in the doldrums of page 5/6 is anyone’s guess. However, I hope someone does, as a lot of people are asking for answers.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:17 pm    

    I wrote a really long response for you and it was over 1250 characters. GAH!

    Here I go again:

    a) I’m not a source of information for release dates – if I tell you something it is usally right when I tell you so, but digital dates are slippery. Really take anything relating to dates from me with a pinch of salt and wait for official announcements.

    b) As above.

    c) I want to make that post, but I’m not able to yet. Lots of exciting stuff happening with PSone in the near future but I have to get lots of stuff squared away with a lot of people before I can announce anything.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:20 pm    

    d) As you rightly say, I do this not because it’s my job but as a courtesy to you all – that said we do want you to be as informed as possible so I’m training up my colleague to assist with blog commenting so there might be a new face kicking about soon to help out when I’m not able to comment.

    e) I know, it can be very frustrating but I’m not in a position to enforce prices, I can only advise publishers and first-party as best as I can. If they follow my advice is up to them.

    f) Thank you, I’m well aware. 🙂

AppleTango2008 27 July, 2011 @ 6:21 pm   254

I normally defend sony about most stuff when but when something that should be on the store isnt i get pritty mad. I just want to play the Dragon Age 2 dlc is that so much to ask.

dgnfly 27 July, 2011 @ 6:23 pm   255


why would you want dragonage 2 DLC remember the expansion packs price on the store it was priced as a full game. any smart person would wait for a game of the year edition

Alkeye82 27 July, 2011 @ 6:29 pm   257

I have no problem with the L.A. Noire Consul’s Traffic Case not being part of the Rockstar Pass, because it was never going to be part of it. My problem is I go to download and pay for it and it says “This content cannot be accessed on your account”.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:21 pm    

    Being looked at, not sure what the problem is but it can and will be fixed if it isn’t already.

Sleem01 27 July, 2011 @ 6:29 pm   258

Having phoned Playstation support I was have been advised that Back to the future episode 5 should be available by mid september (possibly end of August). Don’t understand why the US gets its earlier than us???

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:23 pm    

    Oh lordy, please dont ask customer services about release dates they have very little visibility on them.
    Episode 5 is almost certainly (as certain as anything ever is around here with release dates) releasing on August 3rd.

Alkeye82 27 July, 2011 @ 6:33 pm   259

@259 Because it was not available in Europe until 3 or so weeks(I think) after the US. So of course the US is gonna get it first.

Skookie30 27 July, 2011 @ 6:35 pm   260

More stinking lies BTTF episode 5 better not be end of august/early september. i doubt it be that date we waited long enough and each time SCEA get it 1st.


The_Fallen01 27 July, 2011 @ 6:36 pm   261

thhis is just f***ing wrong whats the point in this site if you cant get any info on their posts. if i could i would use the american PSN but i cant do that so i think i’ll just get an xbox if sony don’t sort out the EU playstation store.

guitardevil6 27 July, 2011 @ 6:37 pm   262


Telltale only just announced a week or two ago that Episode 5 would be released on US PSN on 26th July, with TBA marked on EU release date.

So even Sony don’t know yet when it’s going to be released…

@JonnyPauz Telltale are working on Jurassic Park & The Walking Dead at the moment, but I hope they release the earlier seasons of Sam & Max first on PSN!

Skookie30 27 July, 2011 @ 6:38 pm   263

i remember Sam & Max a funny kind of content 1st SCEA get it we got it a day after it was nearly all episode that did happen.

Scuffy_P 27 July, 2011 @ 6:39 pm   264

As fun as ‘Section 8: Prejudice’ is, unfortunately I played it to death about 4 months ago on LIVE. Looks like I’ll have to be happy with ‘Dust’, also on LIVE.

What the Hell is happening with the PSN Store guys? Last week to were singing and dancing about ‘Limbo’. Granted it’s a great game, but also 3-4 months old. Is that going to be the same with ‘Dust’ and ‘Renegade Ops’?

The money Sony save by not sealing any timed exclusivity rights, or just a simple joint platform release, is lost due to the lack sales from duel platform gamers. Why would I, or the millions of other gamers, wait 3 months to play ‘Dust’ on the PS3 when we can play it NOW on the 360?

It’s the same with game trailers. Compaired to the selection of trailers for current games on XBLive, PSN is shockingly poor. In fact I stand a netter chance of finding new trailers for PS3 exlusives on LIVE than I do on PSN, lol.

You’ve got to start pulling your finger out guys. PSN-Europe has a terrible, terrible reputation as it is. For all our sakes, don’t let it get any worse.

Lord_Gremlin 27 July, 2011 @ 6:43 pm   265

@Scuffy_P: They can’t get worse. Unless they start stealing our money. Like, openly.

I take it Bioware/EA is real happy with SCEE right now? You better see to it that the DA2 DLC is up by tomorrow morning.

Get your act together, I might be wasting my holiday time whining here, but this is your JOB and large corporations are investing money and manpower to further your products. EA, THQ and Rockstar are not your average consumer low-spenders and you’re treating them like this?

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 6:47 pm   267

So, to everyone who didn’t read my post:

According to Bioware Sony have said that the DA2 DLC will be up tomorrow morning.

MorbidPrincess 27 July, 2011 @ 6:53 pm   268

People who are waiting for the Dragon Age 2 DLC, this was just posted on the Bioware forums:

“Apologies for the delay, everyone. We’re still investigating why this has occurred but Sony Europe has confirmed that they will launch the Legacy DLC tomorrow morning.

So hang tight, it will be available soon.”

So we should get it tomorrow.

dial_595 27 July, 2011 @ 6:57 pm   269

Oh, and nothing short of a total disgrace we had to get this info from someone at Bioware WHO LIVES AND ACTUALLY WORKS IN A DIFFERENT TIME ZONE before someone actually paid by SCEE in Europe got their act together and put some information out.

Alkeye82 27 July, 2011 @ 7:00 pm   270

I still wanna know what the deal is with the L.A. Noire case. Still can’t download it.

psychobudgie 27 July, 2011 @ 7:04 pm   271

@Sleem01 Mid September for BTTF Episode 5? Is that some sort of joke? This will be the monthly content that if the outage hadn’t occurred would have been released last month? The content that was released yesterday in the US with the same soundtrack? Wow.

RedeyeCult 27 July, 2011 @ 7:08 pm   273

@ Sleem01
because all telltale games get released in the us earlier it took months to get S.B.C.G.F.A.P in the uk.
I already have BTTF EPISODE 5 though i bought it on day one, when us released it.
i used my us account, ebay people EBAY. $20 card for £14 isn’t bad i bought BORDERLANDS GOTY for $19.99 on us store BORDERLANDS ON ITS OWN! is £23.99 on are UK store.
im no mathematician but yeah……. also why is the black ops pack returned to £11.49 first strike was 11.49 then escaltion was 10.99 (orginal standerd set by mw2) now its 11.49 AGAIN! bearing in mind that the last time america got a cod pack price hike was with mw2 there prices haven’t changed since. why, WHY????

Sleem01 27 July, 2011 @ 7:09 pm   274

@psychobudgie – Completely agree with you. Was on the phone for quite sometime trying to explain this. Though to be honest, I’m not sure if Playstation support actually know what they are doing/have any accurate information.

I remember last christmas when I bought Monkey Island and it was all 5 episodes, but only one episode worked. They were trying to convince me that it was only a one episode game etc….

Think I’m just going to have to wait and see like many others it seems.

SuperJag86 27 July, 2011 @ 7:12 pm   275

Hi Ross,
I try not to compare the US and EU PS Store updates but this time I noticed that the X Games Asia track DLC for Dirt 3 is £3.19 over here but only $0.99 in the US!
Could you please let Codemasters know about this and whether they are likely to lower the UK/EU price?
Thanks and keep up the great work 🙂

Can you please give Mike a call and get some tips on how to actually do your supposedly community focused job?

Let us know how you get on. Or don’t, if you are giving us your usual level of response.

Another fairly weak update, loads of stuff missing compared to the US as usual and still no Spelunker, BTTF ep 5, etc etc….

Good luck downloading DA 2 content tomorrow while the entire school population of the United Kingdom is downloading their COD map pack. Awesome.

As for people saying that it’s perfectly normal for telltale games to be late in Europe. Well that is not my problem. Sony advertised the chapters as monthly content and as of next Monday it isn’t. As someone else stated, to add insult to injury they are now selling it at a discount before us mugs who paid full price have even had a chance to complete it. It’s no wonder most people are losing faith with Sony. If someone would listen, it’s not your kit we are complaining about, it’s your complete lack of customer care of any kind whatsoever. How difficult is it to knock out a quick reply offering some sort of explanation for content delays and mix ups on the store. We shouldn’t have to call you to get inadequate answers.

Rashilda 27 July, 2011 @ 8:20 pm   287

ridiculous update this week. It’s not like this that you will rettain customer loyalty SCEE. We have not forgotten the PSN Hack, and worthless updates, lack of response, and overpriced products will only make it more obvious to everyone that you really could care less about your customers.

BlueRaven 27 July, 2011 @ 8:34 pm   288

I bought the “Back to the Future” 5 game pack thinking there was only 1 episode left to wait for.When i went to download episodes 1-4,Episode 4 is MISSING.
Can anyone reading this help??

before saying something like this,try to learn how read 😛

………….but the first 1000 Plus members who are opted in for email who buy the game will get a free copy of the original Section 8!

Wraxend 27 July, 2011 @ 8:46 pm   291

Man Sony needs to get its act sorted out. Last year I asked if we might have something along the lines of Summer of Arcade that the Xbox enjoys and was told that it was something they were looking into and were more than aware off. 1 Year later and nothing I bet they might say the same thing this year and again next year we’ll be dissapointed.

I mean you’d have to be crazy to have a line up of cool games to be released during the quietest time in the year for game releases. Right?

Sp4reNL 27 July, 2011 @ 8:53 pm   292

I have a question that I would like to get an answer to (haha…)

Last week it was already the same but I still can’t follow and understand which of the 2 should be cheaper or more expensive:

The NFS:HP bundle price is much more expensive then the 3 packs on their own. So which price/prices are correct?

The_Fallen01 27 July, 2011 @ 9:14 pm   293

acridweasel 27 July, 2011 @ 10:05 pm   298

Come on, for goodness sake.
LA Noire case does not show up for those who have already downloaded the Rockstar Pass. You can search for it but not download it.
It does show up on accounts that haven’t downloaded the Rockstar pass.

Please either a) Fix it or b) At least let us know someone there is alive and on the case on this, or any of the numerous other reported problems.

I really despise those people who are quick to shout that they are defecting to XBOX, but Sony you and you alone are gradually turning me in to one of those people.
I really want to keep my PS3 as my main console and Microsoft’s as my secondary (i.e. hardly-used) console, so please stop making yourselves look like you have no clue how to run your business.

Most of the update post is simply a copy and paste from last weeks sale. The pricing error in NFS is still going, a total of four highly anticipated releases that were scheduled for today are missing and this is comment number 300.

No edits to the main post. No replies.

Wednesday is the one day during the week where a consistent and reliable presence on the blog is an absolute requirement. SCEE, if you read this, I hate my job and I’ll happily run the blog for you. You have my email address, make me an offer.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:34 pm    

    It’s not a pricing error. I grant you it’s a bit strange, but it’s not an error.

Quinlank 27 July, 2011 @ 10:28 pm   301

I’m usually a lot more patient and tolerant than most when it comes to PS Store issues, but this Dragon Age 2 and LA Noire DLC situation really is a total clown show.

Believe me, I can appreciate not wanting to read any comments sections on this site, but there needs to be information on any delays or issues that occur or it’s only going to make a bad situation worse.

Sort it out already please, this really isn’t good enough.

guitardevil6 27 July, 2011 @ 10:48 pm   302


I got that as well and BTTF Episode four was missing.

You just need to search through the store in ps3 games, not in the sale section. Episode four should be free to download since you’ve already paid for every episode.

xchris2008x 27 July, 2011 @ 11:38 pm   303

Why is there so many problems on the ps store?, feel dirty for buying a £25 card now 🙁

kingcrowbaruk 27 July, 2011 @ 11:42 pm   304

Just a small suggestion for the blog team.

If some of these Frequently Asked Questions were actually answered within a few hours of the Heads Up post being made, then maybe it would result in the comments section not running to 300-400 comments within the first day.

The reason these same questions are asked EVERY week is because there is little or NO response.

Also the number of errors are getting ridiculous. There is something flawed in your system if there are pricing errors nearly every week.

To little automation? Copying from databases via post-it notes? Incorrect usage of the magical US Dollar to Euro/Pound pricing machine?

It’s frankly an astonishing way to treat “potential” customers.

Thankfully for this generation at least there are other sources of downloadable games and content, especially if much of the exclusive content is not even purchasable within a timely period compared to other regions.

maliDjuro 27 July, 2011 @ 11:47 pm   305

What is happening with L.A. Noire DLC in Croatian store? We got Rockstar pass, yet we didn’t get all the cases. And now, we didn’t even get “The Consul’s Car”. I’d like to get DLC that I paid for, not because I paid for it, but because I want to play it.
Thank you.

Shift_Breaker 27 July, 2011 @ 11:50 pm   306

Also, because everyone forgot to mention it, “Schizophrenia” by Jukebox the Ghost as Rock Band DLC is incorrectly priced in the store. It’s £1.19 instead of £0.99

Just to add to the list of accurate complaints this week, for those that aren’t a lack of Crash Bash, or for DLC that is going to be released tomorrow anyway.

Alkeye82 28 July, 2011 @ 12:27 am   307

I’d just like to point out that the L.A. Noire Consul’s Car Case is not(and has never been) part of the Rockstar Pass.

That does not excuse the inability for anyone to download it though. I was happily ready to download and pay for it and the fact that I still cannot, annoys the hell out of me.

Funky_Dino 28 July, 2011 @ 12:30 am   308

Bumblebee 28 July, 2011 @ 1:22 am   310

“I’d just like to point out that the L.A. Noire Consul’s Car Case is not(and has never been) part of the Rockstar Pass.”

The implication with the Rockstar Pass was that it would be for ALL the future LA Noire cases. The fact that in large print on the artwork it says “All Access” implies this. I am sure that when I bought it I was under this impression too, perhaps not from the PSN store but from it being advertised elsewhere.

The fact that now DLC is being released that is not included is, in my opinion, misleading and false advertising. The fact that it’s not even available on the store AT ALL for Rockstar Pass subscribers is just a disgrace.

Seriously SCEE, you have got to sort yourselves out. I’m a massive PS3 fan but I am tired of being let down. The PSN store is a jumbled mess of disorganisation. The pricing of content is often ludicrous.

While I’m at it, SOCOM’s lack of regional lobbies is a smack in the face to UK and European players. Do you hate your European customers, or is it just that you can’t be bothered with us?

Ahh Ross

another lame update another week of abuse when will u learn,it’s obvious you posted this before dashing for lunch or holiday you take a few!! But it can’t b hard too leave a couple of staff on the ready who have a few answers relating to at least half the legitimate questions asked.

In your defence people asking for this game and that game to be releast dont really deserve an answer, its out of your hands and besides if your oldskool circa nes,megadrive days you should know how many games weren’t realeast across all regions there are too many boxes to tick that costs to much money.

But u really do need to sort the blog out the most replies i’ve seen is 16 to over 400 posts your a billion pound company so this is frankly pathetic.

Help i’m in melt down can’t spell realeast,realest,realesed think the last might b right too late need sleep

Shift_Breaker 28 July, 2011 @ 1:52 am   316

@313 Do you own the Rockstar pass? On the UK store at least, any accounts that have the Rockstar Pass will make it only available by searching for it, and even then you can’t access it. It doesn’t show in the in-game store, either, with those accounts.

Anyway, in any case, to those complaining about not getting the case for free, if you read the description on the rockstar pass, it only mentions the four cases and the other bonus items, and Rockstar are sticking with that. Does it suck? Yes. Especially for a case that apparently only reaches 30 minutes, maximum. But it’s not SCEE’s fault. Go ahead and complain at Rockstar somewhere.

You can complain at SCEE about some other things, though. But it’s not entirely their fault. It’s only fair to complain about the crossed wires, and even then with a whole lot of regions to get to, that can explain why sometimes things are never on par. Things shouldn’t be this bad, but they are which is why it’s so easy to be realistic with these releases instead of pessimistic.

Jpoely 28 July, 2011 @ 2:20 am   317

So with all the psn store updates where is the dlc of sideswipe for the transformers dark of the moon game in Australia? It has been out for over a week in the US store and on the Australian xbox 360 store, why is it so difficult for oz to add it?

Bumblebee 28 July, 2011 @ 2:59 am   318

Right, I found what I was looking for on the LA Noire website under the social club:

“Get the L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass, a new way to order and purchase DLC that gives players access to all of the downloadable content for L.A. Noire, available for just $11.99 on PlayStation® Network and 960 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE®. ”

See what that says?


I bought the pass after reading that and I’m not happy at all that it now seems to be untrue.

It says that here:

It also says this:

“Several standalone cases, collectibles and challenges for L.A. Noire are available via PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE®, including all of the pre-order exclusive unlockable bonus content as well as a free downloadable weapon. Dedicated gumshoes can also take advantage of the Rockstar Pass to get all the DLC at a special discounted price. Read on for all the details.”

In my dictionary, “all” means EVERYTHING. Apparently not in Sony’s?

Bumblebee 28 July, 2011 @ 3:02 am   319

I’ll emphasise that last bit in case anyone has problems with the language used:

“Dedicated gumshoes can also take advantage of the Rockstar Pass to get all the DLC at a special discounted price.”


See what I’m getting at here?

“ALL THE DLC” with the Rockstar Pass.


If we were in the US there would be lawsuits flying by now.

Alkeye82 28 July, 2011 @ 3:16 am   320


I take it you didn’t read this(which came from Rockstar Support).

The Consul’s Car case is not included in the Rockstar Pass, and is a special exclusive which can be purchased in the PSN Store as of July 26, 2011.

Here’s a link if you don’t believe it.

Also if it was part of the Rockstar Pass(which it is not), it would also be part of the Rockstar Pass on the 360(which it is not).

This is an update!? You guys are seriously slacking on the quality of the content (My Opinion). I have so many questions to ask you Ross about future psOne classics release dates, but i wont waste my breath any further coz you got you’re head up your ass, and won’t even bother to reply to them.

Stonesthrow 28 July, 2011 @ 5:33 am   326

LA Noire dlc and avatars were enough for me today.. Tomorrow Black Ops mappack that adds up to 20 euros, that’s enough for one week..

michaeleahcim 28 July, 2011 @ 6:36 am   327

the call of duty annihilation isnt out?? [DELETED] its soo annoying!!

Terrordactyl 28 July, 2011 @ 6:49 am   328

On the Bioware forums, Bioware just stated that SCEE “forgot” to add the DA2 Legacy DLC and it will be there in the morning.

Stupid SCEE seem to make alot of mess ups

JamesTravis007 28 July, 2011 @ 7:12 am   329

I don’t know if this has been mentioned, but Bionic Commando: Rearmed doesn’t seem to be on special in the Australian store. The sequel is three dollars cheaper than the original. Of course this just could be the Australian pricing model, where €7.99 just means ‘whatever we want to charge you’.

acridweasel 28 July, 2011 @ 7:52 am   330

I understand what you are saying, but that text also says “… all of the *pre-order exclusive* unlockable bonus content…”
The Consul’s Car was originally exclusive to the US, rather than pre-order exclusive.
I know that matters are confused by them going on to just say “all DLC”, but it was always the case and not even the Americans got this as part of the Pass.
I’m just glad it even made it across the pond (despite not being able to dowload it yet).
I’m still going to need a fair bit of convincing to keep my PS3 as my primary console, due to the amount of screw ups associated with the Store…

Death-In-Pants 28 July, 2011 @ 8:19 am   331

Any chance of a reason why you can’t log onto the web site issued in Sony’s e-mail regarding password change?

Site is constantly under maintenance so why list this as an option to change your password? Customer service is a joke and you wait an hour before getting disconnected.

Sort your [DELETED] out. No reply guaranteed to this post as any others in this update.


Hey all.

uhhh The annihilation map pack doesn’t appear to be on the store yet 🙁
Is it showin up for any of you????

Topov81 28 July, 2011 @ 8:45 am   333

So many questions and not a single reply. Disappointing.

Personally I’d like to know if/when we’ll be getting the PS3/PSP Mini remake of the classic Ikari Warriors… US store got it 2 weeks ago.

KeYnO82 28 July, 2011 @ 9:11 am   334

The last map packs have all been after 1pm GMT they gotta have lunch b4 another barrage of insults regarding download problems.

hope this is of any use.

hastings69 28 July, 2011 @ 9:21 am   335

youd ‘d think that after the recent fuc….. erm…. mistakes that scee would be trying real hard to make their customers regain confidence, ignoring questions and basic mistakes isnt the way to do this. oh well time to write some letters, and check out xbox prices.

Skookie30 28 July, 2011 @ 9:40 am   336

the last map pack was out early in the morning, i should know because i got it after 9am.

so should they be 2 items of content today BO maps & DA2-DLC 😐

Skookie30 28 July, 2011 @ 9:43 am   337

I know why Ross Not answering to us, it because he busy getting us the Imports that we wanted. lol 😀

Macard 28 July, 2011 @ 9:49 am   338

what the [DELETED] is SCEE doing? why no answer? feels like SCEE is having alot of problems.. I think the best thing to do at this point is to take down SCEE and make SCEA handle all things over the world. rename to SCEW ( Sony Computer Entertainment World )

TheHudfather 28 July, 2011 @ 10:00 am   339


divine1000 28 July, 2011 @ 10:14 am   340

Hmmm, wonder if SCEE is having some serious problems? The comic store has ceased being updated, FirstPlay’s finished, the Home manager position never got refilled, now it seems even the store update posts are a ghost town.

Skookie30 28 July, 2011 @ 10:21 am   341

it all come to a head SCEE is exploding from the inside and dieing to replace by SCEW hurrah 3 cheers




the store been updated with 2 content. 🙂

Alkeye82 28 July, 2011 @ 10:24 am   342

Well all is good now, downloading the L.A. Noire case as I type this.

Catkiller1 28 July, 2011 @ 10:47 am   343

@ 318 Bumblebee

Read POST NUMBER 330 as I was about to type the same thing.

The info that you copied & pasted was for the US Pass hence the $11.99 Dollar sign.

Consul was always exclusive to US & therefore included within their pass. The Eu Pass has all the EU DLC & I read this weeks ago.

So no SONY or Rockstar haven’t lied!!

I’m glad we are able to access it now & reports are coming in now that it’s available after the initial glitch 🙂

Bealinator 28 July, 2011 @ 11:11 am   346

SCEE – If you want to make us feel compelled to buy stuff off the store I strongly, strongly recommend you answer our questions.

Some of us want to know when certain content is out – Tombi, BTTF5 and much, much more.

Some of us (me again) have content problems with the likes of Burnout Paradise which seems to want to scrub our save file at random.

Golwar 28 July, 2011 @ 11:30 am   347

It seems that SCEE has chosen the path to ignore us till the protests calm down. I guess they didn’t figure out yet that they’ll need to improve all around or otherwise the mood won’t change.

I don’t mind that there is fewer content in the summer. They can only publish what is coming, sure.
But that they fail to deliver the few things that should indeed be released, is unacceptable.
That they now frequently fail with setting the correct (not to mention fair) prices, is just beyond anything that would be acceptable.

And for god’s sake, we see that you have troubles to even hold those mentioned minimum standards. But be aware – customers usually expect even more than just the minimum!
Frightening, isn’t it, dear SCEE?

So good luck with trying to ignore us. Or they can of course wait till we switch to competitors, with the next generation.
The bright side is, it surely will be easy for them to communicate with their remaining community then. Even Ross should be able to handle it.

TheDarkArk 28 July, 2011 @ 11:37 am   348

Wouldn’t mind a discount on HOARD for PS+ subs, on the PSP format 🙂

xchris2008x 28 July, 2011 @ 11:49 am   349

Wow still no replys 🙁

Suzzopher 28 July, 2011 @ 12:02 pm   350

Ross didn’t reply again this week? That is pretty bad, sorry Ross, but come on 🙁

kingcrowbaruk 28 July, 2011 @ 12:03 pm   351

If the blog/store team really don’t wish to reply to Store Update post comments, wouldn’t it be a better idea to post it as a read only news item at rather than wasting valuable blog screen space?

Brodiesan 28 July, 2011 @ 12:54 pm   352

If it’s any consolation Ross has also stopped posting on Twitter again.

Maybe he just doesn’t like commenting?

adumr82 28 July, 2011 @ 1:23 pm   353

Got a reply to my complaint to customer support:

Hi Adam,

Thanks for your e-mail about your PlayStation 3 (PS3).

Im sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with the PSN. I have passed your details to one of our management team who will be in touch shortly to discuss the matter with you.

Let’s see if I hear any more.

Bumblebee 28 July, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   354

@320 & 330

Sorry but you are both wrong.

On the Rockstar page I linked to it says this:

“Several standalone cases, collectibles and challenges for L.A. Noire are available via PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE®, including all of the pre-order exclusive unlockable bonus content as well as a free downloadable weapon. Dedicated gumshoes can also take advantage of the Rockstar Pass to get all the DLC at a special discounted price. Read on for all the details.”

Now, one of you said it mentioned “all of the *pre-order exclusive* unlockable bonus content…”” which it does. BUT that means that the pre-order exclusives are now available to all, NOT specifically “Rockstar Pass includes the pre-order content and nothing else”. It’s saying “if you didn’t get the pre-order stuff, now you can” not “Rockstar Pass contains only the pre-order stuff and some others”.

[continued in next post]

Bumblebee 28 July, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   355

[continued from 354]

So let’s look at that again. What it is saying is:

– Bonus missions are available to download, INCLUDING THE PRE-ORDER CONTENT.
– Then it says “Dedicated gumshoes can also take advantage of the Rockstar Pass to get all the DLC at a special discounted price. Read on for all the details.”

Note, again, please that this says ALL THE DLC. ALL.

Now, you may say “but that is for the US!” But it’s from the Rockstar Games Social Club which is not country specific.

Also, when I bought my pass, on the screen I bought it on, it never mentioned specific DLC, it just said all, and has been modified since. I am quite sure of it because if it had only mentioned “you get the next three or four and some other bits” I’d have held off on it. But not having a time machine I can’t be sure.

Anyway, my point stands that Rockstar Pass was being sold as a “buy once, get it ALL” and the wording on Rockstar’s site specifically still says that.

I’m sorry that you choose to misread what has been posted both by me and by Rockstar, but my point still stands.

undergroundgr 28 July, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   356

ehmm new la noire dlc?i thought it was over?is it covered by the rockstar pass or not?

adumr82 28 July, 2011 @ 2:22 pm   357

I’m taking the beginning of replies means yes, complaining to customer services does work and that’s how we get attention

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:44 pm    

    Or maybe I’ve finished doing what I was doing for the last three weeks. Maybe you should come visit the blog on Monday, or you’ll never know.

Ross is back again xD

QuietlyWrong 28 July, 2011 @ 2:35 pm   359

Hey Ross, in the extremely unlikely event that you read this, I noticed that the ‘SSX On Tour’ PSP Essentials game got categorised as a ‘PS3 game’ in the store by mistake. I believe that you’re unlikely to get this far because I’ve posted a comment to this effect EVERY WEEK since the game was published and nothing has happened. Something like 5 weeks.

But since I see you commenting this afternoon, I feel obliged to mention it again, if only to see if you are paying any attention yet. It’s not as if I’m interested in the game, just trying to help out, but if this means of feedback isn’t being noticed, how else can we help you?

PS, for the 6th time, what happened to the Patapon 3 single player demo that was listed for June 3rd but never happened?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:49 pm    

    Someone always reads the blog even if there are no responses, please do not assume that because I had no time to comment that I don’t care what’s going on.

elhozzo3 28 July, 2011 @ 2:43 pm   362

Ross is back, but he doesn’t seem the same … i wonder what has happened …
I have to saw, despite my own frustrations about recent mistakes and poor comms, I have sympathy for him, its a tough job and he takes a lot of abuse on here

Lord_Gremlin 28 July, 2011 @ 3:09 pm   363

How cute, responses are all on first pages and all about minor issues. Elephant in the room is unnoticed as usual.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:51 pm    

    I have no comment on the MK Russian DLC issue at this time, I have not ignored the issue and I addressed it the first time it was mentioned.

psychobudgie 28 July, 2011 @ 3:10 pm   364

there appears to be an issue accessing some content on the store. I’m getting the message ‘this content cannot be accessed on your account’s when trying to get mini golf adventure. any suggestions?

Skookie30 28 July, 2011 @ 3:26 pm   365

Yeah Ross finally relies he had a job to do and finally reply….

2 things i‘m hopeful but i won’t hold my breath is this….

I’m not allowed to talk about it yet, but we’ve got some cool news for you about PSone emulations soon.

And this……

Duly noted – there’s a group of us here who are working hard on trying to get you US and Japanese imports for the Store.

But any bets “soon” will crash with august 16th gamescom to announce them as long they are comming on this side of xmas 2011 and not 2012. 😐

acridweasel 28 July, 2011 @ 3:41 pm   366

I am certainly not ‘choosing to ignore’ the points you are making.
In fact, I am agreeing with you that the way it is worded backs up how you interpreted the situation with the Pass.

I’m just saying that the Consul’s Car was never even meant to be available outside of the US and I knew it would not be included.
I just happen to have read posts, tweets, etc that indicated this.
I realise some would not have read these and it would not have been clear according to the text you are referencing.
Again, I agree that what you are saying is correct.

I was trying to clarify the situation as it *is*, rather than how it may appear to have been presented. 🙂

adumr82 28 July, 2011 @ 4:21 pm   367

Didn’t take long for Ross to give up did it? He didn’t even make it to the end of the first page, poor.

remb21 28 July, 2011 @ 4:38 pm   368

I’m still looking for a answer for this question….:

What about PS One Chrono Trigger (Final Fantasy Chronicles) and Final Fantasy VII Remake?

I think that’s one of the most wanted answers….

Please Ross update us with some new intel about this 😛

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:54 pm    

    I think you’d be much better off asking on the Square Enix community then here – I’ve got no insider knowledge on this front I’m afraid.

trutenprower 28 July, 2011 @ 4:47 pm   369


There is NO Final Fantasy VII remake. It has never been remade only ported to PC and released on PSN.

Europe never got Chrono Trigger for the PS so I doubt we’ll get it.

And great news to see you replying to comments Ross!

adumr87 post 367,
you are verry impatient,sure Ross has more to do.

ps. already a new reply so I bet there will be more xD

undeadcomrade 28 July, 2011 @ 5:20 pm   371

Medievil 2, just where is it?

undeadcomrade 28 July, 2011 @ 5:20 pm   372

Medievil 2.

remb21 28 July, 2011 @ 5:21 pm   373


There is a Final Fantasy VII HD tech demo… I’m hoping that means a remake is coming 😛

And about Chrono Trigger, like Ross said, there are a bunch of people at SCEE working to get imported PS One games to Europe…

Chrono Trigger has been registered some time ago by Sony and it was registered for PS3 and PSP so it will come to PSN hopefully…

Skookie30 28 July, 2011 @ 5:29 pm   374

new DLC for LA norie is link to the Pass

As far as I know, all LA Noire DLC is covered by the Rockstar pass.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:52 pm    

    As I said, as far as I know. I was incorrect on that front, if RockStar says that the DLC is not covered by the pass then I would be inclined to agree with them.

bob24_86 28 July, 2011 @ 5:56 pm   375

The Consul’s Car is not part of Rockstar Pass

The Consul’s car DLC not showing up for European PSN accounts with the R* Pass

Rockstar Support
posted this on Jul-27 15:11
Question: I bought the Rockstar Pass and The Consul’s Car DLC pack is not showing up at all in the European PSN Store or in the L.A. Noire in-game store. I know that the Consul’s Car is not included in the pass, but I can’t find where to buy it. Help?

Answer: We have identified an issue where The Consul’s Car DLC pack is not showing up in the European (SCEE) PlayStation Store for people who own the Rockstar Pass. A manual search can locate The Consul’s Car but attempting to access it from the search results will result in an error message stating that your account can’t access the content.

We are working to resolve the problem and as soon as the issue is fixed The Consul’s Car will show up on PSN and in the in-game store for purchase. Please note that The Consul’s Car is not included in the Rockstar Pass, but it should be available soon for all players to purchase.

The Consul’s Car is showing up in my (and other’s) Store now.
I’m playing it right now!

I would like crash bash to be on the store

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:55 pm    

    With the amount of comments on here about it every week, believe me nobody would like to see Crash Bash on the Store more than me…

CMJE96 28 July, 2011 @ 6:27 pm   379

Also why is my avatar not showing up and the welcome plus is not gone. Its not like this on my ps3.

adumr82 28 July, 2011 @ 6:41 pm   380

Ross, I can see you’re getting a bit upperty at the criticism you’re getting from people but you’ve gotta understand the communities point. You’re saying you’re working on projects to benefit us but all we see is an inferior service to the US. On top of more expensive prices and massive delays on titles we’ve also been getting an alarming number of pricing issues and problems with title and errors on the store recently. It’s time for sony to step and if that means hiring more staff to help thats whats gotta happen. Because at the moment the offering is substandard and will make a lot of people consider when the next gen consoles become available.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 7:59 pm    

    I do fully understand the community’s point of view, and that is why I’ve been sat here from about 3pm this afternoon on and off until 8pm at night addressing your points.

    I would say that not every problem that occurs on the Store with regard to release and pricing originates at SCEE, but I am not at liberty to discuss that any further.

    That said there have been a number of operational issues since the outage that have been unacceptable and I will do what I can (which is only so much when so many parties are involved, both internally and externally) to help address them.

    And I am not uppity. And you smell.

BloodMountain88 28 July, 2011 @ 6:44 pm   381

iv’e been reading that red faction franchise is over and their not making any more , well their as a trophy update for Armageddon so that mean their should be a dlc coming to the store, with thq not pub in any more well the dlc still be coming pls get bak to me on this
also when is the warhammer kill team coming to the PSN

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:01 pm    

    I can’t talk about un-announced release dates I’m afraid, but there is DLC for Armageddon coming.

and you own the rockstarpass??

would be great,I will definitely buy it

dgnfly 28 July, 2011 @ 6:49 pm   384


we both lost it seems the GIT showed up sadly with no real awnsers
they got a whole team on the imports yet they are alrdy a year behind on the jap imports and all the other missing stuff

Shou_Kobayashi 28 July, 2011 @ 6:49 pm   385

Thank you Ross for answering a lot of questions (not just mine) +1 internets to you. Hope though you would be able to answer timely again, than again, I also like the fact that you organize great sales and other things…

I couldn’t resist and shelved out 9,99 € just for the BTTF series. A bit of that decision was made, because you promised a great sale (and delivered)… the other part was, I am very comfortable with the 9,99 € price spot and since it’s single player i can now take my time and come back to it … 🙂

dgnfly 28 July, 2011 @ 6:52 pm   386


if he has more things 2 do why is there on improvement these last 4 years

dgnfly 28 July, 2011 @ 6:52 pm   387

i meant no improvement, lame blog.

remb21 28 July, 2011 @ 7:22 pm   388

Well will you stop insult Ross?!

If the blog is garbage or lame as you said is because your stupid insults!

Ross’s work IS NOT answer to you! He does it because he want to keep you in touch with the latest updates and give you the answers you want… But as I said it IS NOT his work so stop complaining!

Ross, keep the good work and don’t mind with personal insults. They don’t deserve an answer from anyone!

And if you were able to read this and if you have time could you update us with information about the new ps3 internet browser?

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:04 pm    

    Hey, I can’t talk about anything not directly related to Store content I’m afraid, but thank you for the support.

Bealinator 28 July, 2011 @ 7:35 pm   389


Apologies for any…heated comments I made earlier.

Got a bit carried away, I am usually so restrained too in terms of what I write and say.

Won’t happen again – I am sure if I were in your position I would have snapped by now and wrote “FOR CHRIST’S SAKE (incidentally, this features in my two-and-a-half year hold post about Tombi) GETTING A PSONE CLASSIC ON THE STORE IS NOT AN EASY PROCESS! **** OFF!”.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:05 pm    

    It’s fine, like I said I don’t take it personally.

    Even when you call me names.
    And suggest I’m lazy.
    And tell me I’m having it away with a prostitute – that was one of yours, right?


Bealinator 28 July, 2011 @ 7:36 pm   390

Oh, Ross, I think we will all understand where your efforts have been focussed on in the past few months.

Can’t wait! I suspect it will be something that will put a smile on all of our faces.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:12 pm    

    I think you’ll like it, yeah. Well, I hope so because it was a real pain to get sorted out!

QuietlyWrong 28 July, 2011 @ 7:46 pm   391

Hey Ross, thanks for putting in a long stint well into the evening to reply to the blog comments – I’ve enjoyed reading your responses.

Don’t get me wrong, when I complain, it’s not about the lack of response, which I appreciate and accept is a gift not a part of the service, but I’m disappointed that when people point out errors on the store through this medium, there is no evidence that anyone is reading the comments (evidence in the form of things being resolved, that is) and if there’s a better way to point these things out, I’ll gladly take it.

Excited to hear that something interesting’s coming up on 1st August and keeping my fingers crossed for good news on the PSOne imports front. 🙂

And… ‘running around the countryside’? Intriguing…

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:08 pm    

    You’re quite right, if there’s no actual feedback it’s tough to know if things are getting sorted out, I do appreciate that.

    We’ve put a process in place this week in light of all your comments, because of course, it’s all very well for me to say i think you deserve visibility but it’s quite another to deliver on it.

    I’ve got a little minion who’s name is Andy, he will be around to make comments when I’m not in the future, which may start next week – please be gentle with him.

    Mr. Gallagher and I have set aside a time every Wednesday at 2pm to sit down and look through the first hour’s comments and action any issues that you guys raise – that doesn’t mean we won’t look at the rest of the blog, but it should result in some guaranteed immediate feedback.

Goonboy 28 July, 2011 @ 7:47 pm   392

the abuse Ross and James and previously Mike get on here is absurd.

get a grip guys!

Brodiesan 28 July, 2011 @ 7:55 pm   393

I’ve complained about the lack of responses because I genuinely believe that, if it’s truly meant to be a community site, there has to be two-way communication.

That said, I never doubted Ross was busy. My ire was more directed at the fact that Ross is expected to do too much. It’s not his fault. If anything, it does look like our “concerns” about the lack of response from SCEE is going to be addressed with more hands on decks in the future to assist with replying. So, everyone, there was a legitimate gripe and SCEE has listened. Let’s accept the fact that Ross is doing a stellar job and replies when he can. Let’s also hope there will be more comments (from new faces) going forward.

Now, about those crazy price mistakes …

Grateful for the responses clarifying a few things at least Ross. Cheers. Sad to hear Amy is still so far off, but given how little has been shown of it so far it’s not unexpected.

Don’t envy you having to have read through this entire comment section. Brave man.

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:11 pm    

    Hey, I actually don’t mind doing it, but of course I’d rather do it in office hours.

    I’ve actually played a build of Amy, it was very, very pretty for a PSN game and it was fun as well.

I don’t really want to keep posting questions to this effect but you said lots of PS1 classics were through the legal stages and ready to go on here, yet all we are getting are racing games and Disney/shovel-ware crap, any and all of those here who bought a PSP GO have been abandoned by you especially those of us who missed out on the 10 free games and massive price reduction, I myself have two PSP GO consoles with both now having broken power supply plugs, with the non existent movie store and the casting off of the Comic book store why even bother to continue to promising PS1 and PSP games that we all know should off been here from day one,Nintendo have learned from your mistakes and are now offering any who bought the 3DS since launch free games,I think you should do the same as many including myself still buy the over priced games on this store for our obsolete console. Can you at least get some good PS1 and PSP games on this store next week that we all want to play,please

    Ross McGrath 28 July, 2011 @ 8:30 pm    

    The PSone games take time to get together and unfortunately as I said earlier, it’s a pretty big resource requirement for companies to convert their old PSP games to digital – much eaasier done at the time of publish, and of course the release of PSP games are slowing down in recent times.


Thanks for looking into Driver for me Ross 🙂

it only with a heavy heart that i highly criticism on these pages you did notice i laid of the criticism lol.

kudos Ross i think you broke your record & mike kebby record for answering us.

@ Ross do SCEE store team work in UK because you are due overtime pay & double pay on holidays eg: Bank holiday i did get double pay on bank holiday.

thank the UK Law for that. 😉

& I Too will be looking forward for the august 1st post and in august the start of footy. 🙂

I’m sure that it’s just oversight with it not being available in Ireland, I’ve asked our guys to get Ubi to make the necessary update.


Ye it must have been an oversight, Just found out weeks ago it was out in other stores but not mine, Just was odd so thought id chase up on it

Been eager to play it again

gamniac 28 July, 2011 @ 8:34 pm   403

It would be great to see Die Hard trilogy (psone) in the store or Destruction Derby 2(psone).
Instant buy for me.

    Ross McGrath 29 July, 2011 @ 8:05 am    

    I believe something held up Destruction Derby 2 but I think it’s on our list to try and publish.

@ Ross

Thank you for all the replies…

…and ask your bosses to give you a holiday. Seriously, not a single one since 2009?!

    Ross McGrath 29 July, 2011 @ 8:05 am    

    Oh I’ve had a few days off here and there. It’s not like I’ve worked every day!

Shou_Kobayashi 28 July, 2011 @ 8:45 pm   405

Thanks again. Big kudos for doing that apart from the office hours, I am looking forward to monday, whatever it is. Thank you again. I shall remember the effort in harsher times… 🙂

Skookie30 28 July, 2011 @ 8:52 pm   406

@hiddenaway maybe SCEI doesn’t know about our UK work laws about overtime and double pay should we tell them lol 😉

LCT1709 28 July, 2011 @ 9:08 pm   407

Wondering whether you can help me I brought the Sam and max bundle as part of last week’s store update but am having issues getting episode 1 as it still priced at £6.29 instead of being free as part of the bundle managed to get episodes 2-5 without any problems

Just wondering how I can get episode 1 so I can start to play it from the start instead starting from no 2

Thanks in advance

    Ross McGrath 29 July, 2011 @ 8:07 am    

    I’m going to look into it this morning for you – the intention was to make Sam and Max Episode 1 free for the duration of the sale – if that hasn’t happened we’ll make Ep 1 free until next Wednesday and then you can grab it, okay? I’ll drop you a note here to confirm when done.

kosigan 28 July, 2011 @ 9:09 pm   408

Re: reply to comment 106.

Someone at EA thinks that £13.99 is a good price for a bundle that contains 3 items that you can buy for £3.19 each? That price should so clearly have been divided by 2 from the original £15.99, not had 2 taken away from it; then it would make sense.

Erroneus 28 July, 2011 @ 9:13 pm   409

Yeah I’m also curious Ross if you ever got a reply from EA on the NFS:HP bundle.

It would suck to buy the three dlc’s individually, only to see the bundle getting is priced fixed.

    Ross McGrath 29 July, 2011 @ 8:09 am    

    I’ll follow up on it, but I don’t think it’ll get discounted any further before the Summer of Speed ends next week – don’t let the kooky bundle pricing stop you from grabbing the DLC if you want it.

TwinBlade04 28 July, 2011 @ 9:24 pm   410

Thank you for the reply Ross! 🙂 I’m sorry if my question was out place. I thought of asking about this here because it was kind of related to the store (“the DLC still being available but can’t be used as it is” part) :P. Should I expect an answer by the Motorstorm product manager? And if yes, when/where?

Keep at it :D!

(Can’t wait for Monday now…itchy!)

    Ross McGrath 29 July, 2011 @ 8:14 am    

    Yeah I understand why you thought it was a Store issue, it would make sense but me and the product manager think it’s related to the server switch-off.

    Chris (the PM) has sent a message to the Motorstorm development team, so I’ve asked him to come and post the response here.

geddesmond2 28 July, 2011 @ 9:40 pm   411

(PART.1)Not your job to answer peoples comments! Maybe so but if I remember correctly this whole blog came to be because all of the community on the PS Forums were sick of getting no answers on the PS forums.

You also said this Blog is an information blog but correct me if I’m wrong, Isn’t answering peoples questions giving them information too. The only differance in the information given by answering a question and the information given in the blog is that when you answer someones question you are actually giving them information they want.

Not everyone cares about what videos are coming to VidZone or about these great sales that’s happening on PSN right now because chances are if people didn’t buy a PSN title within its first year its not because they were dear but because they didn’t care for them.

I mean

before i go out this to the MOD….

You didn’t think i would‘t notice it that You deleted my post and it wasn’t even “awaiting moderation” did that big bady bobby.K tell you to delete it.

@skookie30 LOL, Bobby K is as you described, It’s why I don’t buy new Activision games. LOL.

i will say it again every-one knows that Bobby.K is a greedy bastard £11.49 for maps last time it was £10.99.

my other words were not link about the overprice of the maps moderation/deleted if you must before i photo it. 😛
