Hey Andy – good items.

Can you give me any clue as to Tombi?

And will Crysis be coming up as a deal?

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 1:45 pm    

    Sadly still no update on Tombi, sorry dude

    As for Crysis, this is not due to go one sale this year but maybe in 2012.

Bealinator 14 December, 2011 @ 1:34 pm   2

Sorry, I just had a look at the NFS price. Is that a typo at £69.99?

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 1:46 pm    

    Yes that is indeed a typo and thanks for pointing it out, I am getting it amended.

Splutterbug 14 December, 2011 @ 1:34 pm   3

Looking forward to some Sonic CD. Anyone interested in Alice, Play are selling it on disc for £10

almighty-slayer 14 December, 2011 @ 1:34 pm   4

Alice: Mandess Returns is a bargain for £48. Not like it has been on sale for £10 recently…

Just Corpse Party for me

Jesse-Blue 14 December, 2011 @ 1:34 pm   5

What is the reason EU PSN does NOT get Trine 2 this year?
Xbox gets it worldwide on 21.12, US PSN gets it 20.12.
Is this Sony’s fault as you don’t get your act together like with so many many other releases which take like weeks longer in EU?
Or is it M$ buying timed exclusivity AGAIN for EU (I hate this f…ing company) like they did several times this year
Or at least give a hint.

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 1:48 pm    

    Sadly I can’t answer because I simply don’t know if there is a deal with ‘another company’ but as you have stated it would not be the 1st game to be affected like this.

TheKillerSnowman 14 December, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   6

ihope that Resistance 3 – Brutality Pack will be working this time.

almighty-slayer 14 December, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   7


blueyoshi5 14 December, 2011 @ 1:35 pm   8

Hay, Andy any update from capcom about the resident evil 4 avatars:)

TheKillerSnowman 14 December, 2011 @ 1:36 pm   9

do we in sweden get movie store this year or do we have to wait to year 10 000?

Agamer2006 14 December, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   10

Sonic CD, awsome been waiting for this.

Got a small thing to mention. I redownloaded populous (PS1) and I noticed on the xmb the image has the white background still around the cover of the game aand doesnt look right with my other ps1 games, just wondering can this be fixed easily

Bealinator 14 December, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   11


Funny you should say that about Alice. I just bought it a few hours ago on Amazon for a price that was too good to pass up!

Michelasso 14 December, 2011 @ 1:37 pm   12

Marvel Pinball – Vengeance and Virtue tables!! That was about time! Still another great deliver from Zen Studio Four tables for 8 euro is a steal!


£70 for NFS O_o are you crazy or is that a typo?

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 1:53 pm    

    It was a typo…

    However I am also crazy but that has nothing to do with the pricing, just my state of mind 😀

Bealinator 14 December, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   14

Oh, will Stranger’s Wrath feature as a deal?

guitardevil6 14 December, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   15

Marvel Pinball!! Yes! 😀

Thanks Andy and all the team!

Also love watching Access each week, such a great addition to the store!

And yet again… no Jurassic Park! This becoming a joke! So much for saying mid-December! 🙁

swatchthis 14 December, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   17

Hi Andy, I hope you’ll be able to answer my question. Is there any news on us getting the Saints Row: The Third avatars?

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 1:55 pm    

    I have not seen anything yet about them but i hope we will, I will see what I can find out.

ChemicalBacon90 14 December, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   18

LOL I don’t even know where to start with some of those prices…

I mean, for a start, both Alice and DiRT 3 are £10 on today; I’m sure you could get them even cheaper if you shopped around.

Why do you bother to put the games up at these extortionate prices?
I accept that SCEE may not be responsible for setting prices, but why not have a pricing structure in place (similar to the App Store) whereby publishers can only charge set prices, e.g. £6.29, 7.99, 9.99, 11.99, 14.99, 19.99, 23.99, 29.99, 34.99, 39.99 [max] etc…) ?

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse:

“Need for Speed: The Run (£69.99/€49.99)”

What a joke.

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 1:58 pm    

    Yer the NFS pricing was a typo, my bad sorry for that one.

    As for the rest I agree, however we have to think of over 30 diffeent locations accross europe and other non EU countries we service and the pricing at all those locations and not just the UK.

Domino2097 14 December, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   19

Are we going to be getting the Dynamic and static themes and avatars for The Last of Us? otherwise good update this week.


Absolutely nothing for me this week 🙁 is there anything good coming up for the last update before chrimbo Andy? like JP or any other full BR titles? (at a decent price?)

Also who makes Alice? cause they need a reality check!! it’s 9.99 instore now I mean how do they come up with these prices??

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 2:02 pm    

    Depending on what content you are after really but we have some good stuff coming out next week also. Sadly I can’t confirm what yet.

    As for Alice, that was published by EA games.


With full respect, in august 2009 (gamescom)it was promissed that after the big 5,
The remaining countries were getting the videostore
In the last werk of 2010 on this blog we got promissed again, with applogies, that it was going to be released 2011
A roadmap was known, but couldn’t be communicatef
Now with 2011 almost gone and still no news about the remaining service
I ask with outmost respekt& honorable,
When will the remaining countries get the videostore
We returned to sony after the breach of security,
The minimum we could get is an answer instead of being ignored

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 2:03 pm    

    I would love to answer but as I do not deal with the movie store I can’t comment, sorry.


Lol 70 quid for NFS!! :/

Shifty_Geezer 14 December, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   23

No Dungeon Defenders? No Trine 2 this year? Constant delays of Under Siege’s patch? Can someone please explain why SCEE holds games back that launch everywhere else including Live! EU? If there’s a fair reason then that’s fine, and we’ll appreciate the quality controls, but all we see are delays for games that work everywhere else. It’d be nice to have an explanation why so we don’t just get frustrated.

SneakCore 14 December, 2011 @ 1:39 pm   24

i bet you guys held back the Resistance 3 Brutality Pack,..

so you could include it in todays ”Not as much content as last week ” Update.

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 2:07 pm    

    This is probably the most insane statement I have ever read… Why would we want to delay selling a product just because content for a weeks publish was small? That is just silly.



Faustofausto 14 December, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   26

Nice update, I’m sure I will buy some stuff! 🙂
Any news about Uncharted 3 upcoming DLC or UC3 Beta rewards?
More game at PS+ trial section would be great, for example Alice:MR 😉

chrisredfield_97 14 December, 2011 @ 1:40 pm   27

hey where are the last of us avatsrs that us got yesterday please give me an answer about this andy i wanna know and tell me if you can put them to store and the static theme also please answer


That would be the same Alice: Madness Returns that was release on US store yesterday for $40 or €37 on VAT added. Err, no!


Do you know if / when SCEE will release the ‘’ app for using the PS Move motion controller with a PC?


is the psp full game bundle a typo? as it looks cheaper to buy them individually than as a bundle?

Persona 2: Innocent Sin (£27.99/€34.99)
The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky (£27.99/€34.99)

Persona 2: Innocent Sin + The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky (£59.99/€47.99)

Crazybasil 14 December, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   31

Oh, my eyes! I saw MotorStorm Apocalypse instead MotionSports Adrenaline and i was like NOOOOOOO, WHY THERE IS NO RUSSIAN RELEASE? Nice update by the way. When The Saints Row 3 DLC missions will be here? And what’s inside The Run DLC?

TheKillerSnowman 14 December, 2011 @ 1:41 pm   32

NFS here in sweden is £30 so i will not buy it in the PS store if i wanna get it.

Jamesyp00 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   33

Awesome, always wanted to play Fear Effect! and my friend has been eyeing up corpse party for a while so im glad that’s below £20. Erm, £69.99 for Need for speed the run? Bit much isn’t it? And £47 for Alice, when it’s £10 right now seems way out of there.

sterushton 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   34

the US had a The Last of Us dynamic theme for free, EU doesn’t even have the static one? How come Sony, how come?

At least (I hope) I will get the Resistance 3 DLC this week. I still don’t believe your excuse though. But I’ll forgive you.

Suzzopher 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   35

Great update. Very pleased to see Corpse Party and Sonic CD.

EA are fools for charging £69.99 for a bad Need for Speed game.

JonnyPauz 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   36

yay more free stuff for me. any chance that in the 12 deals for christmas there’s a discount on “Sideway : New York” or “Sam & Max : BTS”????

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 2:50 pm    

    Sadly not as Sideway was already recently discounted in the trial and unlock sale. As for Sam & Max, we will have to see.

herotoozero 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   37

Is the disclaimer a kind of apology for having to put a game on the store for 70 quid?

BTW it’s £10 on for 24 hours, buy 7 and use 6 as frisbees…way more fun.


i see fear effect is £5.49, i have £4.something in my wallet if i added money from my card would i have to put on £5+ to be able to buy fear effect or could i just put £1 on

also when is fear effect 2 coming since they where both rated on PEGI at the same time

where are “The Last Of Us” avatars and dynamic themes that the americans got last night 🙁

SlickShoes 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   39

£69.99 for any game is a joke.

I wasn’t going to buy it, but just seeing a game listed at that over inflated price on the PS Store puts me off buying anything else.

Are you guys/whoever published this really living in a world where anyone pays £70 for a single game that is probably the worst of the franchise to date?

Out of touch as usual, goodbye PS Store, more fail each week.

Hell-Raiser-85 14 December, 2011 @ 1:42 pm   40

Hi Andy where are The Last of Us avatars like the US got? Any news on Trine 2? thanks

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 2:51 pm    

    The Last Of US avatars will be coming to the EU store but I have no offical release date yet.

    Sadly no news on Trine 2

TroubleMaker411 14 December, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   41

Awesome update, cheers.
Need for Speed: The Run – £70

70 Notes really is stupid money man, surely you can’t think that’ll sell for that!
Where are these prices coming from?

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 2:52 pm    

    ok 5th time now I have had to say this…

    It was a typo, sorry.

    As for the pricing, it comes from the publisher.

herotoozero 14 December, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   42

Sorry i meant Alice is a tenner.

homerjnick 14 December, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   43

£69.99 for Need For Speed The Run…..


SyLaR__GrEy 14 December, 2011 @ 1:43 pm   44

Prices are an absolute joke. Seriously.
Digital distribution is supposed to be the way forward but these prices are laughable.
Disgraceful service

£69.99 for NFS The Run?!?!? You guys really need to sort out your pricing on here. Amazon has it for sal for £24.99 and you are charging an extra £45 so that you can download it instead of having a physical disc, that’s like almost 3 times the price for exactly the same thing except for the insane amount of download time.

You guys seriously need to review your pricing of download versions of disc based games.

hbrilakis 14 December, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   46

definitely a typo guys, its 50 euros, cant be 70 pounds


So as well as overcharging, we are still no further to getting the full range of PS1 games that other regions have and no sign whatsoever of PS2 games? With respect, I must ask again for the contact details of who to make a formal complaint about this to, and that as a representative of the company I believe you are legally required to give upon request.

sterushton 14 December, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   48

Oh sorry, I also wanted to say that the Resistance franchise section on the store is sadly lacking, when you click on Resistance 3 it only has the online pass, surely you should be putting the DLC in there? Invasion and now Brutality?

Where is Trine 2, wasn’t that scheduled to be released today?

LAClennell 14 December, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   50

no ‘The Last of Us’ avatars?

Cringles88 14 December, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   51

I thought I seen 007 on the store last week? so no ‘new’ demo this week?


Why buy Alice (inc free copy of original Alice) for £10 from when you can buy the digital copy for £47.99?

lonewolf23786 14 December, 2011 @ 1:44 pm   53

I want more SNK games on PSN in the future pls!

Chocobo115 14 December, 2011 @ 1:45 pm   54

has there been any word on when we’ll get that remote account control? I’m asking since I would like to deactivate my PSN account on a YLOD’d PS3 :/

HiddenAway 14 December, 2011 @ 1:45 pm   55


I think Andy’s mixed up the Euro and Pound symbols. Ghostlight annoced the prices as £47.99 (€59.99)

I bet it’s the same for Need for Speed 😛

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 3:00 pm    

    YAY logic wins, we have a winner! took 55 comments for someone to figure out the typo mistake.

Alex-1124 14 December, 2011 @ 1:45 pm   56

This week I’m not asking the obvious 😛
Will the be a PSone/minis sale anytime soon?

Homicide_17 14 December, 2011 @ 1:45 pm   57

OMG!!! If next gen goes DD only i WILL have no option but to QUIT gaming, 70 quid for a game is a bloody joke when i can buy the same game at retail for 40 and 20-25 after i price drop.

Spaulding 14 December, 2011 @ 1:46 pm   58

Any update on Auditorium HD?

flip20077 14 December, 2011 @ 1:47 pm   64

Hi Andy How are you, With Jurassic Park when is that due on PSN and as Im from Australia when should we get it. Could it be on psn before the end of the year Thank-you


£69.99 = 8459.45 yen

Damn, though I could yell it’s over nine thousand!! 🙁 but almost there, think this is a new record.

Shifty_Geezer 14 December, 2011 @ 1:47 pm   66

@ChemicalBacon90 – there’s no need to regulate prices. Sony’s approach let’s developers/publishers choose themselves. The buyers then show them what prices are acceptible or not by not buying £70 titles. Forced prices could mean forcing games to sell lower than they are worth and forcing less profits on the devs, or seeing devs up their price a bit to hit the nearest margin and charge more than they like. There are no forced prices in other markets, so why in the DD games market?

chicken_freak88 14 December, 2011 @ 1:47 pm   67

Hi Andy, cool update – will probably get Dead island this week.

Any chance someone could talk to Square Enix about getting Crisis Core on the PSN and maybe a sale / discount for Final Fantasy 4 Complete Collection – already own the hard copy but my PSPGo is missing out and £27.99 seems a little high for the digital copy… paid less on release for the collectors edition 🙂

And Soulblade & rage racer from Namco if christmas wishes are being answered 🙂


p4zinho331 14 December, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   68

70 quid for NFS The Run?

I know EA aren’t adverse to milking all they can but #areyouseriousbro.

Any chance of I Am Alive showing up next week Andy?

potential91 14 December, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   69

Incoming flame for Need For Speed: The Run price. Putting that aside happen to know if the Pre-order bonuses for the game. (Underground, Carbon, Most Wanted challenge series) Will they be available at some point for purchase?

Also, Stacking discount soon? Pleaseeeeeeee :DD

iriihutoR48 14 December, 2011 @ 1:48 pm   70

SynysteRx- 14 December, 2011 @ 1:49 pm   72

Can you provide a update on if/when we will get The Metal Gear Solid avatars, Marvel vs Capcom 3 avatars, And the Killzone 3 avatars that are on the US store.

A reply on this would be much appreciated!

acridweasel 14 December, 2011 @ 1:49 pm   73

Stop complaining that Alice is £48 and NFS: The Run is £70.
They are both clearly marked at £47.99 and £69.99 respectively.
Which is a bargain in my book.
Having said that, I am a complete and utter idiot who will pay ridiculously inflated prices for games that have been out for ages (6 months in the case of Alice).
“But the publishers set the prices,” say the team.
Oh, OK. So third party publishers control the PS Store. Awesome.

my-kal_UK 14 December, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   74

Digital games SHOULD be much cheaper than retail, yet your asking 7 times the price? (based on herotoozero’s comment)… Ok Sony, you keep pushing for digital while the world keeps laughing.

almighty-slayer 14 December, 2011 @ 1:50 pm   75

Oh good, only £20 overpriced instead of £50.

Hi PS EU Team 🙂 Im so happy with the wonderful updates this year and Sonic CD is just the cherry on the cake!! 😀 Thank you for your hard work! One question: If I am having technical difficulties with my PSN Plus account who do I contact? PSN SA has tried so hard for me but nothing has been resolved 🙁

runicdagaz 14 December, 2011 @ 1:51 pm   77

Corpse party! Persona 2! Fear Effect! I love this week! 🙂


Any chance we’ll get the Theme and Avatars for “The Last Of Us”? (US got them in yesterdays update)


anybody who wants square enix U.S imports bombard their blog with it cause they aren´t planning on releasing em. the greedy bastards


Will we get the MGS avatars in this store?

I might pick up sonic cd today but im not sure if I should wait and see if Plus gets it as a freebie as previous sonic titles have been given away.

uberxtechnic 14 December, 2011 @ 1:52 pm   82

For the past month or so everything I’ve wanted has been only on the US Store.. makes me wish I’d made my account for that region instead. 😐
And surely the NFS pricing is a mistake there, right?

Bealinator 14 December, 2011 @ 1:53 pm   83


Just wish to say that the deals so far are actually quite good, barring a few items that were a bit out of line with retail pricing. BUT, the past three items have been quite good. PAYDAY was quite a good deal, and the Mickey Mouse game tempts me. I shall think a little more on it as I shall have to tap into my bank account. Again!

Can you give me any hyper-cryptic hints about what the next deal will be?

Persona 2, Corpse party and trails in the sky all in the same update? When it rains, it pours!

you can do it here but the is 1 problem you gotta deactivate em all
i read that you can just reactivate the one´s your using but haven´t tried it myself i´ll wait for 2nd ps3 2 die;jsessionid=4B4E48D9173180DB541476A780BD45CD.lvp-p1-npgrct02-2209

herotoozero 14 December, 2011 @ 1:55 pm   86

Is Motorstorm apocalypse due on sale soon please?

I would hate to buy it and save £3.50 next week :/

Skookie30 14 December, 2011 @ 1:55 pm   87

*shakes head*

No No No that bundle for to PSP trail in the sky + P2 is wrong 1st when was pound was more then Euro in every store update post.

you see pound/euro…….

Mickey’s Wild Adventure (£4.79/€5.99)

Rally Cross (£3.99/€4.99)

Fear Effect (£5.49/€6.99)

Ambassador Kane (£2.49/€2.99)

Persona 2: Innocent Sin + The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky (£59.99/€47.99)

see can you see a pattern you SCEE says you don’t set the prices.

i’m not paying 60 quid i was promise off this……

€59.99 (£47.99) taken from ghostlight blog

let Xseed show how to set price right.

next week is the last store update before xmas & still no ps2 titles whats wrong with SCEE boss not telling us when?

because it him holding it up.

TheKillerSnowman 14 December, 2011 @ 1:56 pm   88

why don´you guys put the EU/UK store and US store together? that way everyone will be happy 🙂

ligtningrod1 14 December, 2011 @ 1:57 pm   89

Need for Speed: The Run (£69.99/€49.99) ???

I’m totaly disgusted by the GREED that EA is showing I realise this is not SONY EU’s fault I hope, But that of the publisher in this case EA.

I hope in due course that price is altered and I 100% hope for 0 sales anyone who buys that from the store at that price should be ashamed.


I’m guessing the Alice Madness Returns doesn’t include the American McGee’s Alice DLC like the version so the full package is actually £46 cheaper at play, 5-6 times more expensive on the store haha.


Any updates/news on the Marvel vs Capcom avatars?

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 4:55 pm    

    Just had a meeting with Capcom and they are looking into it but will take some time.

cheezdoodle96 14 December, 2011 @ 2:00 pm   92

#48 Wait, there is an Invasion Pack?
Or did you mean the Survival Pack?


Not to bad update. I got to much to play anyway:D + always look forward to the ‘Access’ videos each week:P

thedanman64 14 December, 2011 @ 2:01 pm   94

Nice. Will be picking up sonic cd today then. Always a fan of retro sega games!

I have a question Andy. Is sega planning to release anymore games in the Sega Vintage Collection series? I heard they were planning to bring super hang-on to PSN. Grateful for any information you have.

cheezdoodle96 14 December, 2011 @ 2:02 pm   95

@24 If you’d actually paid atention you whould know that Sony (I don’t remember exactly who, but probably Andy, since he is the one who does the ‘Heads Up’s) said that they had to delay it because of problems with the included theme.
They said that they know some people don’t care about it, but that it some do care (me included), and therefore they delayed it to make everybody happy.


“P.S. DISCLAIMER – Any comments I feel are disrespectful I will ignore, so please be polite.”

How about you practice what you preach? These prices are downright disrespectful to your loyal fanbase. As are the 12 deals of Christams and the 12 *cough* free PLUS stuff, which loyal customers already have.

£70 for NFS? What are you guys smoking? Did you really think this wouldn’t draw any angry comments? It’s almost like week after week you are flame bating us, egging us on to post bad comments about the pricing structure and how Sony rip off the EU fanbase.

AaronSOLDIER 14 December, 2011 @ 2:04 pm   97

Twisted Metal 2 anytime?

Any eta on when we’ll be getting Jurassic Park?


@Chocobo115: You should be able to log into the Sony Qriocity site and be able to reset all your game console activations.

RobertMorridin 14 December, 2011 @ 2:05 pm   100

Fear Effect 1, awesomesauce!
Never played it, but loved FE2.

Do you have any updates on the import program of games like Resident Evil 2&3 and perhaps… Breath of Fire 4 and Legend of Dragoon? 😀

Either way, thanks for the new update!

TheDaftTool 14 December, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   101

AC Ancestors Pack for me I think. @Andy any idea if we’ll see Broken Sword 1+2 on PS1 classics any time soon?
Keep up the good news buddy

SKINRUSH 14 December, 2011 @ 2:06 pm   102

How massively out of touch, stupid or repulsively wealthy would you have to be to pay PSN retail prices at the moment ?

I can’t understand who in their right mind would pay £69.99 for NFS: The Run. (or any game)

I also don’t understand why NFS: The Run is being priced £20 higher than EA’s other recently released and overpriced (on PSN) Battlefield 3.

Was it EA or Sony that decided that Need for Speed was worth £20 more than Battlefield 3 ?

Everytime I read this blog, I find myself thinking that if Sony had a vaguely sensible business plan for the PSN store, they would be much better off.

Arc the Lad?
Dungeon Defenders?
Ton of other games and DLC that I forgot meanwhile?

RussianBaby1 14 December, 2011 @ 2:07 pm   104

Still no Payday Code 🙁

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 5:01 pm    

    I have your code for you and will arrange to send it via the XMB. I really do apologies for the delay


Great update this week, defo grabbing Burnout Crash 😀

I have to mention the pricing on the downloadable titles, notably the full game releases on PSN; £70 for Need for Speed…£70! I thought Alice at £48 was ridiculous but then I saw that!

I don’t pretend to work in any industry involved in video games, publishing of digital content and any roles that are involved pricing


£70 is just plain stupid – actually, its insulting to your customers that you actually think they will pay it (yes, I’m sure some will) saying that – IF Need for Speed becomes the top selling game on PSN for December I will applaud Sony

Digital copies of games HAVE to be cheaper. I’m not suggesting 50% cheaper that’s stupid. People want to buy into digital formats, but they’re also not stupid. WHY would anyone buy NFS at that price when any shop or online shop WILL sell it cheaper AND you can sell it on (I know devs/pubs hate the second hand market :p) but that will help push a sale. People accept they can’t re-sell it, so that why a cheaper digital copy is all the more important!!

anyway, rant over – I know that you have to control over all this Andy. However if there is ANYONE you can get through to then give them a slap 🙂

Skookie30 14 December, 2011 @ 2:08 pm   106

well andy this must be a other typo since when a dollar less then a pound.

example $9.99 ps1 classic is a 7.99 quid

alice $39.99 USA

alice 48 quid/60 euro EU.


Hi there,

I was wondering what the status of the PSone classics Sypro 1,2,3 and Rollcage 1&2 were? Are these currently “on the list”, near release or being held back for any particular reason?

Cheers 😀


Could you PLEASE add Square Enix’s new PSP essentials to PSN? They’ve got games like Dissidia 012, FF4 CC and Tactics Ogre in tores for £8!

Please make them this price on the store 🙂

ligtningrod1 14 December, 2011 @ 2:09 pm   109

Unfortunately ZaphodUK this isnt Sonys Fault its the Publisher that decides the price.

I’m not trying to defend Sony here because we all know they could say something or encourage a better price £70 is a total ripoff; blatant robbery; taking advantage of stupid people.

It’s christmas surely they could have put it at a competetive if not equal price for parents to buy.

RRP anyone ?/ what would that be ??

Stephen220378 14 December, 2011 @ 2:09 pm   110

I’d just like to ask why the hell an ancient PS1 game is on the 12 deals of christmas right now? We were promised great deals every two days which up until now they had been (well kind of), nobody wants less than £1 off an ancient game that was crap then nevermind now. What a lame effort.

AvenGer20 14 December, 2011 @ 2:10 pm   111

Honestly u guys bring a boring King of fighters XIII theme and ask money for it (its just a boring wallpaper) but not even a dynamic theme or avaters. And STILL I dont see any of the DLC characters. I dont understand why it takes so many time to upload them in the store, America Store has it so whats the problem? Do you guys need to send it to EU in a package or something pff. ANd i just read that Trine 2 doenst even come this year on ps3, wow you guys doing good.

Anyway Andy i dont blame you, because you just work there, but can you answer me this qeustion, Do you have any news on the DLC characters for the KOFXIII?


HAHA so NFS was just a typo! but still £50 is still not right when i could pick it up online or from a retailer for under £40

I really struggle to see any logic in this

SKINRUSH 14 December, 2011 @ 2:13 pm   113

Looks like NFS: The Run has ‘come down’ to a still ridiculously expensive £49.99 in the last 5 minutes.

Still insulting, particularly for a game that Edge magazine gave a score of 30% to.

ZaphodUK 14 December, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   114



“What is the reason EU PSN does NOT get Trine 2 this year?
Xbox gets it worldwide on 21.12, US PSN gets it 20.12.
Is this Sony’s fault as you don’t get your act together like with so many many other releases which take like weeks longer in EU?
Or is it M$ buying timed exclusivity AGAIN for EU (I hate this f…ing company) like they did several times this year”

Yes naughty Microsoft, bad Microsoft. How dare you actually give your users games in a timely manner and have consistent pricing across all teritories? You oughta be ashamed of yourself. I’d much prefer a company that holds back releases indefinately and charges rediculous prices for content.

How can you hate a company for doing things right? Clearly you’ve got it all backwardsw my friend, it’s Sony that deserves the hate for your delayed and over-priced content.

ligtningrod1 14 December, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   115

Applause to Andy or whoever spotted that NFS Run price or a quick re-think which ever it was thanks ;)still not cheap 😛


When will Trine 2 be released? maybe Plus users could get a day one discount being as ps3 users have to wait longer for it 😉

Jesse-Blue 14 December, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   117

@ Andy
Thanks for the reply re. my post no. 5! Much appreciated.

Just to clarify:
It is not due to quality or whatever technical issues within Sony QA then, that is holding up the release of Trine 2 on PSN in EU?

Because this has been the reason for many EU delays recently.
Like Mortal Kombat, Jurassic Park etc.

Please let me know, thanks!

TheDaftTool 14 December, 2011 @ 2:14 pm   118

@people complaining about NFS- Looking at it should tell you its a typo, hell andy has even said its a typo and it has been corrected! If you dont like the price you can always get the game else where (Amazon for example).

SKINRUSH 14 December, 2011 @ 2:15 pm   119

@NerdUK – NFS is available for a lot less than £40 currently. It’s floating around the £20 to £25 mark in various retailers.

JolipinatorJG 14 December, 2011 @ 2:16 pm   120


Helvedeshunden 14 December, 2011 @ 2:16 pm   121

Some polite food for thought: If you see people acting disrespectfully, it may well be because they themselves have been treated disrespectfully and are acting out of desperation to be heard. While it is good to keep a civil tone, those unhappy souls are your paying customers too and ignoring them willfully will only add fuel to the fire.

Jesse-Blue 14 December, 2011 @ 2:17 pm   122

Eurogamer really seems to love laughing about Sony or talking bad about you.
Look at what they concentrate most on their Twitter post for your store update… 🙂

“NFS: The Run £69.99 on PSN Store this week – Sonic CD, Duke DLC also launch”


Nice update for me ;D!

Fear Effect, Mickey’s Wild Adventure, Rally Cross and Sonic CD!! Nice!!

I hope will come out more games from PSOne ;).

But Arc The Lad, what’s happen? Nearly three months since the error :(……..

Great update! 🙂

Totally getting Sonic CD.

FortyPercent 14 December, 2011 @ 2:22 pm   125

Damn, I’ve been considering getting Alice, but not at that price. Still, nice to see it on there. I’ll wait for a sale.


What’s better than more pinball?

Free pinball \o/


Yes, Duke DLC 🙂

Time for the Doctor to clone me!


Marvel Pinball, BF3 DLC & Sonic CD for me!

@Andy: Any idea about Guardian Heroes (SEGA) coming to PSN?

Brodiesan 14 December, 2011 @ 2:25 pm   129

Hey Andy,

Playing the “I don’t know” card every time someone asks for more information about the Video store rolling out to more territories (as promised by SCEE) is all well and good, but how about you SPEAK to whomever is in charge of the Video Store and get them to post on the Blog with a long overdue update?

That said, I don’t expect a reply. And I don’t expect this to actually happen. Why? Because it’s patently obvious that SCEE have no plans to expand the Video Store service into other countries and thus have quietly buried the idea, hoping we’d all just forget about it.

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 5:14 pm    

    Pretty simply why I don’t because this blog has nothing to do with the video store nad I have nothing to do with the video store so I will not start answering questions about something that has nothing to do with me.

ChemicalBacon90 14 December, 2011 @ 2:25 pm   130

@ Shifty_Geezer (#66)

Whilst I agree with some of the points made, I think it’s clear from the prices that we see, that the majority of developers/publishers have shown themselves to be incapable of setting competitive prices.

Furthermore, it’s worth noting that prices for content on the store are already regulated somewhat.
Generally, PSN games sell for £6.29, 7.99, 9.99, 11.99.
Although there are exceptions, the majority fall into the above.

Ultimately though, I agree that prices shouldn’t be regulated completely, however, I feel as though it would be a good idea to put a maximum price publishers/developers can charge, e.g. RRP for standard retail games (£49.99). There should be no reason for a dev/publisher to be charging more than this, providing the game is not some kind of a special edition/dlc bundle etc.

IcelandicOps 14 December, 2011 @ 2:26 pm   131

I have a confession to make. I actually gave this Heads up five stars solely because the Original Fear Effect is in there. Part 2 is a favorite of mine and I never got around to playing the first one. Brilliant. And people, why don’t you actually read previous posts before putting your flame on with that 69.99 thing?

Lermontka 14 December, 2011 @ 2:26 pm   132

There is some information about free Tomb Raider: Underworld in Russia?

Opt1mus76 14 December, 2011 @ 2:26 pm   133

Hi Andy
Any word on why Goldeneye dlc isn’t free for EU like it is in US? Would US dlc work ok with UK game or is it locked to region/disc version?

sephiroth399 14 December, 2011 @ 2:28 pm   134

will the be an addition of ps2 games to the store?

loonytoon1982 14 December, 2011 @ 2:29 pm   135

I’m curious as to why the prices of avatars are going up recently when they offer no difference in their purpose. Yes I understand it’s only 1p this week but there were some last week ranging from the usual 20p right up to 69p for a static image.

Is there a reason for this that can be shared? Just seems like an unusual move, I can understand paying extra for dynamic themes compared to static but can’t find a reasonable explanation for avatar pricing structure.

It might seem like a trivial thing to ask about but it all adds up in the long run.

jaferris 14 December, 2011 @ 2:31 pm   136

you say the reason for the high prices in the UK is because

“however we have to think of over 30 different locations accross europe and other non EU countries we service and the pricing at all those locations and not just the UK.”

the uk is in the top 5 countries in the world for making money on games why cant it have its own stand alone store and not be put with 30 other countries it is not even part of the EU currency so why should out prices reflect that ? or is it the case of if the uk wasn’t put with the 30 other countries nothing would be sold on the store ?

also being grouped with so many countries we our having to wait for more QA testing and localisation for those specific countries so isnt it in UK best interest to have its own store so the country where you are getting the most income from will have more and better content on par to the USA and Japan store , giving more happy gamers and PS more money !


whatever happend 2 these ps1 games
fade to black.. was on the store was pulled no reason mentioned?
colony wars was suppose 2 be released for plus start off january this year

supersmith2500 14 December, 2011 @ 2:35 pm   138

Awesome, nice to see Sonic CD come out. I’m seriously going to buy it once PS Store decides to update.

vherostar 14 December, 2011 @ 2:37 pm   139

good update dunno if you can talk about it here but the ps plus free games of christmas every 2 days have been majorly disappointing because except tomb raider they have all been free games on plus in the past! You are actually recycling games now? Was excisted about the 12 free games but the fact we are getting recycled games is massively disappointing. Obviously people who just signed up are getting a good deal but what about those who been there since day 1 like myself? We get nothing? Thanks for your loyalty heres nothing! But if you signed up recently you get all the games they got for paying for earlier. Hows that fair exactly?

taurus82 14 December, 2011 @ 2:41 pm   140

Auditorium HD

loonytoon1982 14 December, 2011 @ 2:44 pm   141

As for the pricing error which has since been fixed, the RRP for NFS The Run is £49.99. I can’t see a problem when it comes to the store pricing unless they reduce the prices as time goes on, much like in store/online purchases.

While the complaints roll out that the cost of the game is too high, there are many countries that would love to get the game so cheap. Might seem expensive to us but when you consider that the € price is almost £10 more expensive in the same store, converting in at just under £59. Australian prices run up towards the £71 mark.

Just seems now that the price is about right despite the offers that we all get online.

Falcon1991 14 December, 2011 @ 2:44 pm   142

Nice to see the 007 Reloaded demo, so thanks for that.

But PLEASE like others have said, bring over the Metal Gear Solid, Marvel VS Capcom 3 and MORE avatars.

Seriously, if they were allowed on the US store then it shouldn’t have to be such a pain to come to EU.

Ne0Astar0t 14 December, 2011 @ 2:45 pm   143

Great updates on PSP; thank you.

ALhammadi51 14 December, 2011 @ 2:45 pm   144

US store get “The Last of us” avatars & theme , why it’s not available her .

AvenGer20 14 December, 2011 @ 2:49 pm   145

@ 144

Becuz they need to send those avaters & theme with a plane/boat to EU.

squatch1983 14 December, 2011 @ 2:50 pm   146

Legend of Heroes £28
Persona 2 £28

Or buy both in a bundle for £60…

How does that work then? lol. Rip off.

AvenGer20 14 December, 2011 @ 2:53 pm   147

They should have brought us to EU 20 dollar PSN Cards, so we could also buy from the USA store, then we dont have to wait when it comes to EU.

flashfumoLIVE 14 December, 2011 @ 2:56 pm   148

Sonic CD

Looking forward to Strangers Wrath & Trine 2 next week 😉

Please Crysis discount for one of the deals ANDY 😉

Shadow_Alpha 14 December, 2011 @ 3:00 pm   155

Dear Andy,

Great update but when will you guys bring Chrono Cross to the EU Store? The US PSN Store has it for a while now..



Bovrillor 14 December, 2011 @ 3:02 pm   156

Pretty bummed that there’s no DLC for Uncharted 3 yet, aside from the rubbish skins. The Fortune Hunter’s Club is starting to feel like a waste of money.

The 12 Deals for PSN+ users have so far been pretty good though. I’m hoping Resident Evil 5 springs up in the deals somewhere, as it’s £10 new in stores and more than twice that on PSN. Fingers crossed.

Minor thing: The freebie LBP Xmas content never appeared in the store. Not the end of the world, but seemed odd.

SellKidz4Chips 14 December, 2011 @ 3:02 pm   157

Need for Speed: The Run (£49.99/€69.99)

So how does 50£ turn into 70€? its more like 55€ or something

polynski 14 December, 2011 @ 3:04 pm   158

hey andy pssst andy over here
(whispers)can you tell me when the saints row the third genki bowl dlc is due for release? i wanna make sure i have money when it does

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 5:25 pm    


    Oh sorry, we are whispering…

    (whispers) I don’t know yet… but I am sure THQ will say something soon.

CoolRichy008UK 14 December, 2011 @ 3:04 pm   159

Andy Stewart i hope oddworld strangers wrath HD is still on track to be on ps store next week (21st december) cuz im hopfully gonna get a £35 card next week to get it and i hope it will have a ps plus discount and how soon for worms ultimate mayhem they said it will be out holidays 2011 i cant wait any longer i want it and 70quid for a game lol i think all full games should be 29.99 not 60quid

Darlo-Richie 14 December, 2011 @ 3:04 pm   160

Quite a bit of content for me today! Sonic CD, Corpse Party and Persona 2!

I accept that US PSOne games are coming next year, no sooner and I know you can’t name any, but there are some coming that have been highly requested and from a certain company, I hope? 😉

chrisandsheva 14 December, 2011 @ 3:04 pm   161

@Andy .. nice try with the (cough) typo, i’m sure your team got the reaction and distraction it needed, Seeing as most of the 1st 3 pages mention the (erm) typo. Well i can’t help it. i just ‘sometimes’ get these ideas, some are right, most are wrong. Anyway i only want to repeat a post i made last week, which though you was kind enough to reply to, you maybe misread my point. What is the point of doing a ‘special’ promo, ie the 12 deals, if your stopping the usual forthnightly special offers, i’m not (exactly) sure but i believe it’s around a month since we had our last forthrightly sale, and though rare, i did find interesting deals in those, But as i say, if we are getting the 12 deals and No other sales, (probably till last update b4 xmas), i have to say i am really disappointed with the whole festive spirit that scee is showing us, and i’m Not including my thoughts on the quality/value for money on the ‘replacement’?.. (such a shame), 12 deals promo so far, as it is only half way through, imo it’s plain mean, Sorry to say.

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 5:30 pm    

    Sadly you are making massive assumptions here and don’t know the full facts. So just wait a bit longer and you will not be dissapointed as our Christmas sale does start soon.

are journey and I am alive coming to store soon? (this year?)

CoolRichy008UK 14 December, 2011 @ 3:05 pm   163

Catkiller1 trine 2 and strangers wrath next week ??

well if so thats 2 games il get next week

Catkiller1 14 December, 2011 @ 3:06 pm   164

@ Splutterbug

Thanks for the info on the Alice deal that includes the original download 😉

Ordered it thanks to you! Was going to pick it up @ Gamestation yesterday for £13.99, so you’ve saved me £4!

CoolRichy008UK 14 December, 2011 @ 3:07 pm   165

Andy Stewart is related to his startrek brother 😀 and i hope the free apartment in home tomorrow will be ace 😀

Catkiller1 14 December, 2011 @ 3:08 pm   166

@ CoolRichy

Yes Strangers Wrath is released on the 21st & Trine 2 is scheduled, but may be delayed a week or 2 😉

chrisandsheva 14 December, 2011 @ 3:09 pm   167

Andy has said that Crysis isn’t going to be in the sale, ‘this year’, i would of liked to get that myself, if it had of been,

hastings69 14 December, 2011 @ 3:11 pm   168

absolute crap again. This is becoming a regular thing.

Still no machinarium.

Ridiculously overpriced full games – I can get Alice madness returns for around £12 including the original Alice game in a case etc. This pricing is just crazy!!!!!

Catkiller1 14 December, 2011 @ 3:12 pm   169

@ Splutterbug

If you haven’t got access to the Starhawk BETA & would like to, you can have my code for the info that you provided 😉

I’ll send you a message through PSN & ask. If so, then I will message you back the code!

Catkiller1 14 December, 2011 @ 3:14 pm   170

Hey, sorry to add to the epic but I was wondering if we will be getting purchasable Georama DLC for White Knight Chronicles 2. Any info would be awsome, NA has had them for a few weeks while we’v had free knight weapons, I am seriously grateful but I want to buy some stuff for my Georama ^_^

polynski 14 December, 2011 @ 3:22 pm   176


please answer my above question because i dont wanna missout on the saints row the third dlc due to a missed question

Catkiller1 14 December, 2011 @ 3:23 pm   177


To be fair, your post stating that the price was an error, was at 13:46 & comments up to 55 were at the latest 13:45, so they wouldn’t have known 😉

Couldn’t use logic, as we come to expect these ridiculous prices now!

    Andy Stewart 14 December, 2011 @ 5:35 pm    


    Sometimes I forget the speed at which your guys make comments to how I can respond.

CodeMonkey_UK 14 December, 2011 @ 3:24 pm   178

The Store updates and deals for the past 2 months have been utterly dreadful. I personally have not bought anything from the store for nearly 3 months.

Maybe it’s my personal taste, maybe i’m missing something.

extralife_psx 14 December, 2011 @ 3:25 pm   179

arc the lad!! do i need to say more 🙂 anyways fear effect on ps1, that was a pretty neat surprise, good work, next up arc the lad plz 🙂


Wait… how come the King of Fighters XIII theme still isn’t anywhere to be found in the store despite being listed here for the second week in a row? As a huge SNK fanboy I actually really want it.

That being said, thanks for putting up Marvel Pinball for free. I actually really liked Zen’s previous installments and their super cool themes.

Shou_Kobayashi 14 December, 2011 @ 3:27 pm   181

Alice: Madness Returns (£47.99/€59.99) Rating: PEGI 18

Does this download include the first one, that’s coming with the disc, or do you have to pay extra for that?

chrisandsheva 14 December, 2011 @ 3:27 pm   182

@ Bovrillor.
I hope the RE5 dosn’t m8, wasn’t you on plus when it 1st hit the store, i think around 2 months back, but not 100%. anyway we got it for about 13 quid or so, Mind you if it’s a choice of RE5 or another silly bd game then fair enough i hope you get it, as it is nice to have on the hdd, now if they could just bring us RE2+3 as well then i’ll be well pleased, personally though i wouldn’t mind a half price Dead Space to revisit. Though anything thats decent would do i suppose.

Alice Madness Returns
PSN Ripoff Price – £47.99
Best Price – £10.00 (

Dirt 3

Best Price – £19.95 (

And that doesn’t even include the fact you can probably get half your cash back by flogging it on used once you’ve finished.

So why are we being charged these stupid PSN prices?!?

Skookie30 14 December, 2011 @ 3:33 pm   186

hurah common sense prevail the store been update with the right price for trails in the sky + P2 bundle P2 by it self is 19.99 quid a good buy.

unfortunately i can’t them both till next week i just have enough for CP & sonic CD.

Guri_Tricolor 14 December, 2011 @ 3:33 pm   187

tks for the Marvel Pinball, cant wait to get home and check the store!
if only dirt 3 was a little bit cheaper, really want this game, retail price here is around 30/35€…

polynski 14 December, 2011 @ 3:34 pm   188

lol lbp 1 22 pound lbp 2 20? dragon age origins 24 pound dragon age 2 20? how does that work out?

I3loodthirsty 14 December, 2011 @ 3:34 pm   189

@168 i agree the pricing structure for digital download versions of disc based games is crazy.

games companies talk about digital downloads being the future but with rip off prices for digital download vs disc based games it will never be the future.just looking on the store now and you have games like black ops 47,99/infamous 2 49,99/fifa 12 54,99/driver san francisco 57,99 to name a couple that you could go to game or gamestation ect and get them cheaper.

i would of thought that digital download version of games would logically be cheaper as they dont have the cost of printing discs/case covers/delivery ect

RemyX-1988 14 December, 2011 @ 3:38 pm   192

Hi Andy!

Good update this week! Especially looking forward to playing Sonic CD! Just bought the game in the Store. Awesome price!

But still, I have a few questions:

– When will we Europeans get the “King of Fighters XIII”-character ‘Iori Yagami’ with the power of flames? Hardcore KOF-players are at a disatvantage right now because everywhere else they have the character available for download already.

– Is there any news on Free Reals for the Netherlands? It’s been said you guys were looking into it. I really hope the game will be made available here, to be honest…

– Do you have any information on the PlayStation 2 Classics for the EU Store? Personally, I’m still enjoying my PS2 and 60GB PS3, so it’s of no use for me, but I suspect other people are interested in them…

Hope you can help with these questions, Andy! Thanks in advance!

I3loodthirsty 14 December, 2011 @ 3:42 pm   193

btw in any of you have dc universe the christmas event is live you will get a 2 gig update/dl when you go on

EternalChaos72 14 December, 2011 @ 3:46 pm   194

Thanks for your e-mail about PlayStation Network (PSN). I can see from your e-mail that you feel that there’s not as much content on the UK PlayStation Store as there is in some other countries. When managing PlayStation Store, we do try to provide a consistent experience regardless of the region a particular user is in. In some cases the decision to publish content in different regions at different times is down to the software publisher. On many occasions we, in Europe, are first to publish content. However, we do publish some content later than the Japanese, American and Korean Stores. The reasons for this are varied, as I’m sure you can imagine, with each piece of content having to go through procedures ranging from Quality Assurance to local Legal approvals. In addition, with more countries and languages to support, Europe is subject to a far greater degree of localisation than in other territories which must be taken into account. Having said that, we always aim to provide our consumers with access to the PS Store content that is relevant to them, wherever they are in the world and as soon as we can.

email i got from sony themselves

Skookie30 14 December, 2011 @ 3:46 pm   195

We need to pull out of the EU, as it was the worst thing our Government ever did!

i hope Not catkiller SCEE haveing problems just to run & try to put content for All EU & failing, this Not what SCEE needs.

can you think SCEE serves UK only & Shafts the rest of EU it a SCEE nightmare lol.

i think joining EU was a great idea i love being a brit & euro person my mum says i’m half scottish but i need to check how comes lol

so i’m 1 quater EU the other quater scottish the rest british. but i was born in england so i’m english too.

so what that makes me catkiller.

bravo9zero 14 December, 2011 @ 3:49 pm   196

Why did we not get Last Of Us avatars, like US got?
Surely avatars don’t need any region coding?

Sonic CD ftw!! \o/

Ok no it wasn’t, just delayed

chrisandsheva 14 December, 2011 @ 4:02 pm   203

@Andy .. Anyone?
Does the stores version of Dragon Age 2 include the dlc you get with the disc version, i think it’s called the black emporium, and costs about £6.00 if not, also out of curiousity does Dragon Age Origins include the stone prisoner?, only thats another £12 if it dosn’t, as opposed to buying it on disc new, i only ask as i read a post by someone who got the Warhammer deal, and they said it Didn’t include the online pass, is this info accurate or was the guy just trolling?. Only i recall a blog by James asking us for ideas on how to improve the blog/store, so i suppose including exactly whats included (or not) in ps3 store games would be a good thing.
Also i’m glad the zombie apocolypse dlc is finally here.. i know. it’s not the best zombie shooter around but it’s good enough for me to mess around on.


Wow Mickey! That was my first ever console game I believe! Gotta get it once.

vickaz91 14 December, 2011 @ 4:06 pm   205

hi andy good update no SPYROOOOO =[ please get it for next weeeeek please

GREGGY-BOY- 14 December, 2011 @ 4:09 pm   206

Last of Us just got announced last week and the US Playstation store were able to have the avatars and theme up on the store a day early.

What is going on with EU Playstation store? Is your team last to find out about everything? (PSOne/PS2 games / Themes/Avatars…theres is more that i forget).

Then its the Movie Store which someone else from another country pointed out that they were promised the store in their region but suprise they still have not got it.(I know its not your department)

The sooner Playstation stores are unified the better.

Andy/Ross/James/Whoever? if you were not employed by Sony and be honest…. would you be satisfied?

SneakCore 14 December, 2011 @ 4:10 pm   207


What i Meant is, ok there was a technical issue with the RE3 static theme, but did it really take a full week to sort it out, ..

hay i wanted to know why batman arkham asylum’s dlc is missing from the ps store?

and why goldeneyes pussy glores dlc is priced 1.59? due to the usa getting it for free?

BigBoss-420-_- 14 December, 2011 @ 4:12 pm   209

Hello Andy – Thanks for the Battlefield 3 Physical Warfare pack & for free you say? Woooo *Starts boucing around bedroom walls & ceiling* now this is good & I also like the rest of the update. For people continuously saying the same thing over & over again about the Need for Speed: The Run Andy has already said countless amounts of times there was a typo, which part don’t you understand? The typo part? Then maybe you should go back to school for more education, or even look up the definition of what *typo* means. As for people making official threats due to no PS1 games coming & other regions have them and? Big deal, get over yourself and saying you will call up Customer Care to make official complaint, just makes you definitely fall in the stupid & the fool minded lot, give Andy a break he does his best & you go make threats saying I will make official complaints, if you don’t like PlayStation is not getting PS1 games at the minute, well you know where the door is to head to *Turdbox 360*

ATTENTION: The Magic 2012 deck pacs aren’t working like they’re supposed to. Instead of the decks themselves, they just have the option to turn the (absent) decks to foil.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon!

deadmensboots 14 December, 2011 @ 4:20 pm   214

I think people need to spend a little more time considering digital pricing schemes. The RRP for most PS3 games is 49.99 regardless of the title’s quality, development time or value according to the critics/consumers – lest it is otherwise announced as a ‘budget’ title. Obviously the market fluctuates depending upon a game’s availability or public demand amid retailers, but that is not necessarily a liberty Digital Distribution can take: especially if it is a store run by Sony, who construct the hardware for which the games are made.

Let me put it this way: if I asked you to build me a house, and you put in £100,000s worth of materials & expertise and then I turn around to you and say: Now that it is finished, my neighbours only think your work is worth £30,000. So How about I pay you that and then you can build me another house, again for £100,000? I think youwould feel you best take his work elsewhere. RRPs are there for a reason, they are often undercut due to companies requiring less man-power to sell the goods or getting discounts through purchasing in bulk (which allow them to lower the price).

Arm-chair protests aside: Is there any word upon Stranger’s Wrath or the Arkham City skin-pack for PAL regions?


Lets be honest here, these prices for full games are silly.

If they did a market research they would see all the games are cheaper in stores. So they are trying to rip the ppl off who dont do searches on prices in certain stores. I bought alice and Dead island for 20€. And games to DL should be cheaper right?…

Assassin’s Creed Revelations – The Ancestor Character Pack (£3.19/€3.99) Rating: PEGI 18 – this ant on the store?


Btw do you know if we’re getting Tombi soon?

CodeMonkey_UK 14 December, 2011 @ 4:34 pm   218

Since my last comment was moderated.

Anyone considering buying any of these full games please check online prices, you can save at least 50% and in some cases 75% off the price Sony are charging.

Not to mention the fact you can sell them on later when you’re bored.

topcat3001 14 December, 2011 @ 4:35 pm   219

“P.S. DISCLAIMER – Any comments I feel are disrespectful I will ignore, so please be polite.”

Maybe if you respected your customers they’d respect you back? How’s that logic for the win?

And the fact that people believed that was the actual price should tell you just how out of whack your prices actually are.

SundayRUS 14 December, 2011 @ 4:46 pm   223

I buy this DLC for Magic 2012:

“Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planewalkers 2012 – Deck Pack 2 (£1.99/€2.49) Rating: PEGI 7
Availability: All Locals”

But I receive only foil converter instead of decks. Where is decks?


Just my two cents re pricing – surely if no one bought the digital downloads at these prices, the publishers would have to think about it and adjust their prices accordingly?

Would be interested to know the sales figures, I bet they would surprise many on here…

burkules 14 December, 2011 @ 4:55 pm   225

There is a problem with the Magic 2012 deck packs.

I bought both, and instead of downloading the packs it downloaded the foil conversions for those packs instead. Checked the game and the packs are nowhere to be seen. Looking at the Wizards forum for this game all people downloading this are having the same problem.

I have tried downloading multiple times to no avail.

Any idea on a fix for this?

ukcrazyguy 14 December, 2011 @ 5:00 pm   226

Deadmensboots, that has no relevance at all, it’s called deprecitation. Would you pay full, brand new price for a 5 year old car when you can go elsewhere and get a brand new one for the same price ? Publishers and developers take a cut which is fair but to charge higher than the physical copy even if it’s a brand new release isn’t justified as even new physical copies they get there cut. Xbox live and steam manage to match physical copy prices and also amend prices to match depreciation but psn can’t manage it even when a game is put on 6 months after release. I don’t believe publisher sets the prices due to Xbox and steam, the fact is Sony want a higher cut forcing prices higher. Don’t even get me started on the sales. Unless Sony get there act together next generation will be worse for them than this

so whats up with this magic the gathering add on what time does it come if its coming today im trying to play some people online and it tells me i cant casue i dont have the update

Yay! New Magic the Gathering content. Thank you for so much for this.

However I do still have a question.

Andy, could you or one of your colleagues please investigate into the problems with the White Knight Chronicles 2 in game store. We were promised the new Georama parts back on the White Knight Chronicles 2 update blog entry on 24th November and yet still the in-game store (and therefore the parts) are unavailable. It’s really upsetting as myself and my friends would really like to make new towns in the game with these new parts.


are there any news about arc the lad?
Isn’t it kind of unusual that it hasnt been fixed until now?



What happend with magic2012 game pack its only foil card you cheat me i pay for that but inside i have [DELETED]…

Catkiller1 14 December, 2011 @ 5:03 pm   231

There is a mistake in the psn store in the Netherlands.

The Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planewalkers 2012 – Deck Pack 1 and 2 do not give the decks, but instead premium foil conversions. So aftr paying for both decks I still have nothing extra.

Please tell us how this will be fixed.

Just to make something clear: if there is an ‘exclusive’ demo on our PSN for Plus, just go onto the US store. I got the Goldeneye demo a few days back off there. It seems a bit petty to limit demo access to a small minority that forms the Plus subscription base.

trutenprower 14 December, 2011 @ 5:26 pm   236

Ooooh! Sonic CD and Mickey’s Wild Adventure part of the sale! Awesome!

Nikolaos_ 14 December, 2011 @ 5:28 pm   237


I bought the magic 2012 deck packs but was able only to download foil conversions for the new decks, which I don’t have. Clearly there is an error here. Any word on when this might be addressed would be appreciated.

Thank you

Will the PS2 classics be avalible soon? Will it be within 2012, cause im still waiting on that.

TroubleMaker411 14 December, 2011 @ 5:52 pm   242

Sorry mate,
My intention was not to annoy you

when I wrote the comment, there were no other comments there.

On the subject of prices though, with the vita incoming, and the assumption that the next gen of console (whenever it arrives) is going to lean heavily on digital downloads, No company is going to get very far when we are charged those kind of prices. I don’t just mean sony, other companies are guilty of the same thing.

Just my opinion,

Again, thanks for the update ad apologies for annoying you mate

@ Andy

Could you please answer 211s post about Jurassic Park?

Its not hard to send a memo to the videostore-team with a txt like
“hey peopel at the psnstore blog keep asking about videostores .. can u make a little post for them about it plz so they stop asking it in the wrong blogpost?”


Why can´t I put my CC up on the US store. It has a problem with my zipcode that has 4 numbers and 2 letters. Could this be changed asap.

geddesmond2 14 December, 2011 @ 6:11 pm   246

OK so I downloaded and instlled the R3 brutality pack but I can’t find it anywhere in the game. Its not in CO OP its not in Campaign and its not in Multiplayer. Anyone else having this problem and can someone on the PS Blog let me know if its broken or something.

what was kinda sucky is i bought ten pound psn card which was for payday as soon as i clicked buy it changed to 12 99 i ended up buying infamous fob because of it which took me an hour and a half to beat

Mellors86x 14 December, 2011 @ 6:19 pm   251

I’m sorry but seriously, who is going to pay nearly 50 quid to download a game they can get from a shop for 40, and trade in when done and get credit towards a new game… if Sony, or any other game producing company, want to combat the 2nd hand game culture, start charging reasonable prices to download full games!

Rant over…

heavyrain659 14 December, 2011 @ 6:21 pm   252

I’ve seriously expected a new Saints Row 3 content pack. Can I expect one next week maybe? I know there are several more to come…


Could you PLEASE add Square Enix’s new PSP essentials to PSN? They’ve got games like Dissidia 012, FF4 CC and Tactics Ogre in tores for £8!

Please make them this price on the store 🙂

Pretty simply why I don’t because this blog has nothing to do with the video store nad I have nothing to do with the video store so I will not start answering questions about something that has nothing to do with me.

Wow. Where to start? The blog is SCEE’s way of communicating with its customers. You write on the blog therefore you are a channel for us to ask questions to the wider SCEE organisation. You obviously don’t like this fact, but it’s still a fact.

I didn’t suggest you should comment on something you don’t know about. What I did suggest was that you asked someone who does know something to post on the blog with an update. Why can’t there be a blog post about the Video Store?

Also: “This blog has nothing to do with the Video Store.”


Why is that post got BLOG in the URL? Because it’s relevant!

This is really poor show.

what are those publisher thinking?


I would love to hear an official stand point from Sony/PSN stuff about the huge prices for the full PS3 games on PSN. What is the idea. I know, you are putting there with the RRP, but it is clear that the retailers can offer this games, after 1 month from the release with at least 35% off the RRP price, and in 3 months with 50% off and 6 months with huge 75% off. Why isn’t this fact is taken in account by Sony?


I really hope you read this, It is important.

The Magic 2012 dlc is broken, both of them.
Rather than being deck unlocks they are “foil conversions” which is not what it said I was buying and also does nothing without having the decks in the first place.
Bought both the dlcs in my excitement before realising the mistake.
Please fix this soon as it is pretty bad.

Dark_Overlord 14 December, 2011 @ 7:07 pm   261

Could the EU store possibly get any more depressing, every week we all wait in anticipation of something (usually something the US store has had weeks earlier) and every week constant disappointment 🙁

And don’t even get me started on the 12 FAILS of christmas :/

SCEE need to sort themselves the f*** out, I’m getting sick to death of being treated like this (as are others)


Where is jurassic park?


Hi Andy!

Whats the deal with new decks to Magic 2012, when i bought these 2 deck packs , all i was allowed to download was their foil conversions!
Thats serious misguide!

I paid for new decks and i got nothing!
Pls explain.


Splutter!!! I’ve just nearly choked on my KFC.

I’m new to this Playstation Store and can see what all the complaints are about. I thought I’d buy a few top games to download, but four of the ones I considered would be a whopping £200+, forget that! I can nip down to my local Argos pay an extra £40 quid, get four top games a blu ray and they throw in a 320gb playstation console. Somethings wrong here when I can get a PS3 for £40 quid extra.

heavyrain659 14 December, 2011 @ 7:35 pm   265

please andy answer us about jurassic park ill tell u the secret of the universe for it

PhantomOfOpera 14 December, 2011 @ 7:38 pm   266


If some of you had made an effort to read what had been posted you would not keep asking the same stupid question about NFS price.
Andy said it was a typo and one answer should have been good enough.
Instead, people keep asking over and over again.
Read some of the posts before you make a comment and you save yourselves some time and keep your bile healthy.
Unfortunately, some people enjoy going straight into ‘bitching mode’ and give their 2 cents view on those prices.

We all damn agree that the price on the stores for BD games are a joke. If the game is published by a third party developer go and complaint to them as there is nothing that anyone can do here. If the game is published by Sony then put pen on paper and start sending some nice letters to Sony HQ.
Complaining here on prices DOES NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!! It is just a waste of time.
Finally, we live in a free world where you have free will so use it to go on or amazon and buy the stupid game at the price that you like.
This is what I do, as I think it would be a total waste of time, EVERY WEEK, to comment on the inflated prices we see on the store.

randellaUK 14 December, 2011 @ 7:38 pm   267

We need more avatars for EU fans the US have plenty to choose from and very cheap for all capcom avatars I have the vita avatar from pre order any chance of classic avatars from Sony on old consoles we have any more news on AMY?

andy are ueven still reading us


When Persona 2, Legend of Heroes and Corpse Party came out in the US I was tempted to buy them but I didn’t because I decided to wait and see if they would come out in Australia. A few weeks ago, it was revealed that all these games would be coming to the EU/AUS Playstation store so I thought, cool I don’t have to import these.

Fast foward to today and what do I see, all of these games are now on the PS Store, but NONE of them are available to AUS/NZ customers. CAn you pleas advise is there any chance of these games being made available to us or should I just import?


Sony you make me dislike my own country.

Just in case anyone is interested Tesco Entertainment site are selling Battlefield 3 on ps3 for £17.51.
Its a bit of a glitch shows £29.97 on store page but when you add it to basket it shows £17.51, Ive just ordered it and it went through fine.

I’ve seen other comments who say Tesco are honoring this, but I don’t know how long it will be before they correct it.

SirTodge 14 December, 2011 @ 8:19 pm   275

OH MY GOD £3000! for Need for Speed! OMG you guise ar jokes innit!

oh no wait, it’s a typo.

On a slightly more serious matter do you know if Vita software will be available to download BEFORE February 22nd? I know we can’t get the hardware until then but some of us are still on backwards ass internet and it takes forever to download anything. Being able to preload games onto our PS3s like you can on Steam would be fantastic evne if it’s only a couple of days early.

If it’s not planned can you poke the appropriate people to at least consider it?

Sambuque 14 December, 2011 @ 8:33 pm   276

There are errors on Magic 2012 “card pack 1” and “card pack 2” dlc.

They’re described as brand new deck for the game “Magic 2012” but are just foil unlock for decks not even availlable in the game.

I’m repeating myself just in case, “card pack 1” and “card pack 2” dlc for the game “Magic 2012” [b]aren’t new decks as described on the store but foil unlock for deck not even available in the game[/b].

tommyt46 14 December, 2011 @ 8:40 pm   277

Sweet Corpse Party.

also are we ganna see any more psp update after the PSV launch, and also us there are a chance for us to see some DJMax games up on the store.

is the psp full game bundle a typo? as it looks cheaper to buy them individually than as a bundle?

Persona 2: Innocent Sin (£27.99/€34.99)
The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky (£27.99/€34.99)

Persona 2: Innocent Sin + The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky (£59.99/€47.99)

inverted prices of euroes and pounds

AussieAnima674 14 December, 2011 @ 8:46 pm   279

No corpse party or tails in the sky for Australians? Oh well, guess I’ll get my psp with cfw out and get the free version. No money for u!!


no price for physical warfare so its free?

ImperatorA3 14 December, 2011 @ 8:50 pm   281 There might well be something around the halfway point that nobody’s had before – at least not as a free title.

Aren’t we halfway?


What’s up with the handling of the Minis, PS1 and PSP games on the PS3 now?
Why doesn’t the install files dissapear after they are installed?

Lymmusic 14 December, 2011 @ 9:02 pm   283

Thanks for the store update. Its always nice to get new content. And well done for putting up with the weekly mountain of ignorant comments from people who have clearly been spoiled. Its a shame you can’t as a representative of a business tell them straight out to grow up and stop being ungrateful and instead have to take solice in the rare genuine grateful consumer comments

VORTEXUS 14 December, 2011 @ 9:05 pm   284

Good update. I just want to know when the Magic deck packs will be fixed. Bought both and only got foilded for the decks i wanted to buy.


Steadyrabby 14 December, 2011 @ 9:07 pm   285

*Request for the EU Store* !!!!!

The Last of Us and Assassins Creed Revelations Avatars.
They are available in the US by why not in Europe ??

ukcrazyguy 14 December, 2011 @ 9:19 pm   286

Eh, seriously why should we “be grateful” ? Grateful for waiting to get games, dlc, avatars months after the US?? Grateful for paying for plus to receive no support or decent games. Grateful for no replies regarding delays/problems? Iv been waiting months for my free res evil avatars and beyond good and evil. What answer do we get “il look into it” they have been looking into the res evil ones for nearly 3 months now. People not getting payday codes was a corker, still people without them now. We’re paying customers at the end of the day and there’s a reason for all the moaning and tension on this blog. This is a place for feedback to the team and that’s exactly what they are getting. If its bad feedback then that’s sonys fault

Chrono Cross for EU PSN Store, pleaaase 🙂 US has had it for weeks or months now.. 🙁 best PSOne fame for EU 😀

(Crys) still no sign of the White Knight Chronicles 2 Hometown DLC content i.e Houses, Job parts and scenery. Is there any news as to when we will recieve this in the EU, US has had it for nearly a month now. 🙁

Dark_Overlord 14 December, 2011 @ 9:58 pm   290


Still no matchmaking, people are complaining on the Insomniac forums

chrisandsheva 14 December, 2011 @ 10:03 pm   291

@ Phantomoftheopera .. post 266
I can see logic in your post, however i fear that as much noise as possible needs to be made regarding the mad pricing of most every BD game, Even or probably by those peoplle who choose to do so by bitching about it, though also by the more reserved and subtler posts, it is true what you are saying presently, about having the option to order online and simply just take a stroll to a retail outlet, but things can change very quickly, especially in this internet age, as one of the things that trouble me about the overpriced rrp on ps store is that it may one day be the only way to buy the latest games, if not this gen then certainly next, if and when the ps4 comes out, obviously a lot of people will believe that digital Only games won’t happen yet, but you can be sure that it will come to be one day, and probably sooner than anyone would imagine, so basically if people were to just give up the complaining, well i’m sure your not that type who needs the rest spelt out, but, give a cut-throat industry an inch, and so on.

ultimate_evil 14 December, 2011 @ 10:06 pm   292

seriously where are the arkham city skins, the us psn has had them for a week and the uk xbox got them lasy week. this is laughable


For those of us who have got the Limited Edition of Need For Speed: The Run, is there a separate purchase of the other pre-order content? Otherwise, it seems that we’re being asked to pay twice for the same thing.

chrisandsheva 14 December, 2011 @ 10:11 pm   294

might as well just delete the Whole of this blog from my history, try and counter a informed comment with a reasonable response and every time it gets awaiting moderation, last time it took over 24 hours, just delete it moderator, i will not waste no more time on this silly excuse of a forum,

ccmelo_12345 14 December, 2011 @ 10:51 pm   295

Hope you can help me… I’ve downloaded 3 times Tomb Raider: Underworld from PS Plus. The first time it stopped at 91% and starting downloading other demos, then it stayed for a while, but eventualy downloaded. When it was installing, it reported an error an created a corrupted file. I deleted it all and tried twice again, but it stopped at 91%, nearly 5601 MB, and never ended. I´ve got lots of HD capacity.
Thanks for reading this huge text and hope you can help me!!!

DEMONICRUBLE18 14 December, 2011 @ 11:10 pm   296

Any idea why Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone+DLC and Dead Island+DLC aren’t released on the NZ store or if they’re coming at all?

CyDoNiA-UK 14 December, 2011 @ 11:19 pm   297

Not being funny but your (or rather the publishers) prices for some games are bordering on ridiculous. Some of the games you sell like Alice for £47.99 I have just purchased on bluray for £10. I just think you might sell more if the prices were realistic!

I understand you don’t set the price but it does reflect badly on PSN and Sony when it comes across as you trying to charge extortionate prices. Red Faction: Armageddon was like £57.99 wasn’t it? I got it for £5 NEW!

Need to get a grip then people might buy more.

ichigo_gr 14 December, 2011 @ 11:22 pm   298

Andy’s making fun of us? Really?
“YAY logic wins, we have a winner! took 55 comments for someone to figure out the typo mistake.”

You should check all the rest prices @ store then, cause clearly aren’t all typos. From someone that gives you a digital copy for 70 euros, those mistakes sounds absolutely logically.


i’m mostly curious to know why sony eu want to fail, is it part of the sony global business strategy “screw over europe, we really don’t care that, as a continent they are the 2nd largest market for videogame purchases”

They really need to get their pricing structure for full games sorted out, as they really are a joke and an insult to the people that keep sony in business

Sad there was no special offers up today, especially as the 12 (overpriced) deals of christmas is pretty much ignored by everybody.

Uh, an annoying end to an annoying day

and the avatars.. carnival island and really? a bollywood game that nobody bought or cared about? yet we STILL don’t have any resident evil code veronica, re4, or re5, dino crisis 2, metal gear solid avatars like the american store, games i can understand having staggered release dates, but little display pictures? no sorry i have a hard time believing that


jurrassic park??? When is the release, because you said mid december:)

Unicronic 15 December, 2011 @ 12:15 am   301

This week’s update is very Meh


Some of you are shocking…

I’m suprised Andy even bothers to reply to some of you.

Like Andy said, those prices are for everyone in the EU, not just the UK. It’s not like Sony are ripping people off, it’s the price the publisher/developer puts on the games. Sony put them on the store to give people an option to buy it, simple as.

I wish the mods would stop allowing comments to the weekly update because it litrally is [DELETED] [DELETED] [DELETED] the entire time.

Only thing I bought this week was Fear Effect. Thank you Sony, and Andy – I apologise on behalf of the general public for speaking to you like the way they have done!

Wyvern_777 15 December, 2011 @ 1:29 am   303

This comment will probably be irrelevant as everyone is just complaining about a pricing typo but on the Aus ps store in action game trailers theres an error where it says KH Birth by sleep trailers however it is actually Burn Zombie Burn trailers, no matter if it gets fixed or not just thought I’d let you guys know.

samohttheancient 15 December, 2011 @ 1:31 am   304

So wild arms… is not yet here… is there an ETA? is it perchance going to be released on the psn on the 20th on it’s anniversary date?

Ragnarmarkos 15 December, 2011 @ 1:32 am   305

Does anyone know if Aussie ps store is going to get dungeon defenders? And if so, when?

I bought Dungeon Defenders from the US store over a month ago. Don’t hold your breath waiting for NZ/AU stores to get it, plus it’ll probably be double the price as usual.

Immortal-Wolf- 15 December, 2011 @ 2:07 am   307

LOL really Andy Stewart Sonic CD come on you should give it to us FREE why you ask well i still got my my Sonic CD yes a disc cuz why its called Sonic CD as it fits in my 16 bit sega megadrive ow how you ask good question as i have a disc drive 24 bit fits into bottom of my sega megadrive makes a 24 bit with Sonic CD still you haven’t added the other Sonic CD companions like buzz or croc or amino characters from Sonic CD full original version as iv completed Sonic CD you Race Metal Sonic at The End

Andy Stewart do me a favour make Sonic CD Free to purchase.

burkules 15 December, 2011 @ 2:11 am   308

Could Andy please comment on the issues everybody is having with the Magic 2012 Deck Packs.

Everybody who has paid and downloaded them has instead ended up with a foil conversion file for a pack not included in the game.

There are multiple people in these comments saying the same thing, t would be nice to get a reply on what is going to happen.

MairusuPawa 15 December, 2011 @ 2:32 am   309

Hello there,

Is there a gift system on the Playstation Store? I would like to offer that axesome SonicCD release to a few friends of mine.

SonicCD definitely deserves some love!

AussieAnima674 15 December, 2011 @ 4:39 am   310

Alice: madness returns is $99.95 Aus on the oz store, but only $39.99 US on the US store. Where is the price parity? The ozzy dollar to the US dollar is 1:1 right now. To whoever set up the pricing, are you stupid or something? Think I’ll pick it up second hand so you won’t get a cent.

CHRiSK-UK 15 December, 2011 @ 4:50 am   311

Well I’m glad you added The Legend Of Heroes: Trails In The Sky to the PSP Store because now I’ll be able to play it on a PS Vita but that price is really pushing it. £27.99.

CHRiSK-UK 15 December, 2011 @ 4:54 am   312


ChronoCross didn’t ever get a european release on the PS1 so I doubt it will ever come to the PS Store.

So I have a genuine problem and I get no reply. Is this the thanks I get for being a loyal customer since the PS2 days???!! No wonder I appreciate Nintendo more.

Maxdamage999 15 December, 2011 @ 8:43 am   314

I say good show with the update and loving the sonic cd game,was a good price and i was happy to pay for it,keep up the good work andy 🙂

Saints Row: The Third £19.99 today only at Gamestation!

Catkiller1 15 December, 2011 @ 10:02 am   317

Downloaded the KOF XIII Demo from the US store.

WOW, what a game!

I hate to admit it, but i’ve only ever played the original. The new release is fantastic & I like the similarities with Super Street Fighter 4, with regards to the combos, movelist & Gauges!

Definitely picking it up 😉

FPS, RPGs & Fighting games are my favourite genres. Need to add KOF to my fighting series now!

FleaSixty 15 December, 2011 @ 10:07 am   318

Is there no way we can get an update about what is coming on the store in advance like the Americans do? Seems a bit retarded that we don’t find out unless we go online on the ps3 or check and see if the blogs been updated. Which normally hasn’t until early afternoon. 🙁

Catkiller1 15 December, 2011 @ 10:27 am   319

@ ImperatorA3


Note the word “Might”.

obiadekanobi1980 15 December, 2011 @ 11:19 am   320

the more and more time goes by the ps3 name is getting blackened by these [DELETED] publishers who cannot make enough money off us buying there games instore so they sell them on here for insane amounts!!!

has someone actually pointed out to them at sony that if they sell them for just a mere 1 pound more than the shops do that they could make a killing by the sales generated on the home consoles??

I for one would rather give the devs/publishers all 41 quid of my money rather than the likes of GAME taking 20 pounds plus just for putting it on a shelf

someone at sony’s marketing/buying team have a [DELETED] word with them PLEASE

BlueKitten1986 15 December, 2011 @ 1:07 pm   321

Any news on whether Chrono Cross will be released on UK PSN?
Don’t care when I just want to know if it’s coming. It’s a pain having to play it on my pc using the ntsc disc and an emulator I’ll be a very sad girl if it’s a no 🙁 also Merry Christmas Andy 😀

Chr15toff3e 15 December, 2011 @ 1:24 pm   322

I didn’t think I’d enjoy playing Marvel Pinball, but at the moment, this in my eyes is the best thing that’s been offered on the PS+ since I’ve had the subscription. It’s probably because the game is easy to pick up and play.

AvenGer20 15 December, 2011 @ 2:20 pm   323

hmm seems like im the only one waiting for DLC of King of fighters XIII.

Furiekins 15 December, 2011 @ 4:29 pm   324

Still absolutely no sign of a resolution to those of us who have had our Playstation Plus subscription contract broken.


toocooljonny 15 December, 2011 @ 7:52 pm   325

Have to agree with countless others
about the status of Video Store rolling out
to others regions,
saying you just don’t know is ridiculous at this stage, With the amount of psn users asking about this over and over and over you’d think for even just your own sanity you’d get a definitive answer?
In the meantime as all us lower second class European psn users (loyal i may add)
cause that’s how we’re being treated,

@toocooljonny: Your question fell to deaf ears. You’re loyal, hence treated like dirt. No music, and no video store for you, for me…
Speaking of ridiculous. Look at the post above yours. Take this and let’s not forget how PS store resorted to petty thefts with wrongly priced content such as Mortal Kombat DLC and some other stuff.

Reading the last posts I tend to agree, loyalty gets you nowhere. Especially if you are European and loyal to the PlayStation brand as they dont care about this market it seems. After years of loyalty buying PS2, PSP and PS3 hardware and software, I feel I dont wish to invest my time and money in their systems. Nintendo has always delivered and i am starting to convert in a massive way. Way to go Sony on destroying customer relations. And btw this Andy fellow is a [Deleted] [Deleted] for not answering my post in the 70s section which I had a genuine question but it seems he only responds to teenage fanboy statements and aggressive tones.

blueyoshi5 16 December, 2011 @ 12:47 pm   329

@ Catkiller1
thanks for the heads up for Resistnce3, i will be picking it up (again) later, got it on launch, but never finished the last trophy, hardest dificulty etc, due to basically getting nearly all my money back (trade value, though.) a few days later, whereas if i’d of gone for that last trophy, well you probably seen yourself how quickly that game’s value depreciated, I was interested to see the Saints3 offer you told us about yesterday to, i ‘thought’ i’d got a bargain on tuesday c/o bumblebee as they are selling them for £29.99, what a proper mad/nutty though good game it is as well, And if anyone buys it new don’t forget that if you redeem your online/co-op code before end of january, (?) you get saints2 free, off the store, which i think i been playing more of, so good deal if anyone seen your post yesterday. Anyway catch you later mate.

On a more pleasant note, Jurassic Park: The Game is now available on PlayStation Store in SCEE (as of this afternoon!)
The game is available at €19.99 with an additional 25% off for Plus members for the next 7 days.

If you purchased a 12 month Plus subscription between November 23rd and December 11th you will be receiving a voucher via email for a 100% Free (and yours to keep forever) copy of the game.

Check your email inboxes over the weekend – I’m informed that all vouchers should be delivered by Sunday.

If you are an Australian or New Zealand consumer eligible for the offer, we will be sending your copy as soon as the game is available in your territory.


burkules 16 December, 2011 @ 4:13 pm   336

Hey Andy,

According to people on the official Magic 2012 forum the DLC has not been fixed…it now downloads a full deck unlock pack…but not the pack itself. Different problem but the same result…the deck is unavailable in game.

I brought them when they came out, got the foil conversions, now when I go to the files on the store to download them (since you said they where fixed) it asks me to buy them again.

After entering the game I still don’t have any of the decks unlocked.

So what should I do? Call local costumer support and be charged 2€ just to get my 5€ content for a mistake I have nothing to do with?

Andy Stewart 16 December, 2011 @ 5:11 pm   338

Thanks for the info guys, looks like the infomation I have been given is wrong… So I have informed my contacts and waiting to hear back, I will keep you posted.

bakayoyo 16 December, 2011 @ 5:19 pm   339

Well fix it or take it down, there are still people getting screwed right now. Especially now that the main game is a free christmas gift.

Perhaps it’s best to alter or remove the original post that everything is fine now as not to bait more people to the broken content.

techmode 16 December, 2011 @ 5:27 pm   340

andy? the jurrassic park game isn’t 19,99 but 29,99

tommonsense 16 December, 2011 @ 5:27 pm   341

Hi, Andy
Thanks for the update about Jurassic Park. I look forward to playing it soon.


I just bought Fear Effect off of PSN and I’m having alil trouble getting the save feature to work on my PSP. I was wondering if anyone else is having trouble saving their progress in game and if theres a fix or if it’s just me?


Are the rest of the Legacy of Kain/Resident Evil games coming out on the PSN in the near future?

RealMrLag 17 December, 2011 @ 10:25 am   344


Could we get Mushroom Wars as psn plus freebie or a good discount. I missed one which was a year ago or so… 🙁

KaiserSoza13 17 December, 2011 @ 12:04 pm   345

What is up with the prices above, Persona 2/Legend of Heroes is €47.99 up above and €59.99 on the store,I bought a €50 card to buy this,I am not buying it for €59.99, they are that price on Zavvi for the special editions,€29.99 each,big screw up here.

chrisandsheva 18 December, 2011 @ 12:01 am   346

@Andy .. thanks for your post, 335, telling us jurassic is now on the store, Though i must admit i don’t know what 19.99 euros works out to in uk pounds, i know that when i visit the store soon that it will be priced in pounds, tbh though it isn’t just a case of me not being able to do a simple math conversion, it’s more a why should i, i, like a lot of others are simply as interested in the euro and eu as they are in us, the uk. erm i still have to admit though that figuring out, or understanding how 26 (is it?) countries managed to share the same currency for so long actually lasted as long as it did, before the recent events, to me this truly is a total mystery. As you would guess allready i would like to see the uk, the 2nd highest worlds gaming market, and (interestingly.?) the 1st for girls only. Separate from the rest of europe, or any other market in ps store, But (obviously) not nessarily exclusive, ie if you wanted (eu etc) you could make a uk account, i am not anti euro, just pro uk. plus i believe this ‘model’ would be more successful than the present one. Finally i believe i seen similar requests from our eu cousins.

PS_one_Classics 18 December, 2011 @ 1:50 am   347

Hey Andy, i understand you probably get this asked alot but i was just wasnting to ask if you have any information regarding Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Dino Crisis & Dino Crisis 2. Fear Effect is now up and dam i missed this game, i can not wait for Fear Effect 2 to hit PSN. Also there are afew others, Pandemonium & Pandemonium 2. If you have no info it’s cool.

heavyrain659 18 December, 2011 @ 2:28 am   348

damn wish i had enough for jurassic park been waiting 19 years for it my most anticipated game ever

PS_one_Classics 18 December, 2011 @ 1:00 pm   349

Currently playing Fear Effect and loving the hell out it. I played Fear Effect & Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix back in the day and i loved how the backgrounds were continuously running in FMV. I checked the ESRB site and it’s great news that Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix will be heading to Europe PSN soon aswell. If you love Resident Evil style gameplay, tense puzzles and an awesome story than i highly recommend Fear Effect. Play it on PSP because it looks so much better.

Kambogeezer 18 December, 2011 @ 4:49 pm   350

Anyone had their jurassic park codes yet?

Chrisinator 19 December, 2011 @ 11:12 am   351

IRTundraboy 19 December, 2011 @ 3:33 pm   352

STEALTHSNAKE1 19 December, 2011 @ 4:28 pm   353

VORTEXUS 20 December, 2011 @ 8:08 am   354

Need to get some words on the Magic 2012 thingy. And now that you have taken “this week” icon of dotp 2012 away, then maybe we can get some refunds soon. Or just give us the decks and delete the full deck AND foil pack. I just wanted the 2 decks, not foil nor full deck keys for all 4.

VORTEXUS 20 December, 2011 @ 8:09 am   355

EDIT: 4* decks

VORTEXUS 20 December, 2011 @ 8:10 am   356

AshTheVandal 20 December, 2011 @ 6:21 pm   358

Where is KOF Iori w/ the power of Flames?
If you don’t know, how about you do some work and see what’s up?
1 week ago I told myself to never ever go on PSN EU again, and I haven’t as it is miserable with delays upon delays. I already have KOF Iori w/ Flames, I am merely checking if the EU people have gotten it yet. Unsurprisingly, after almost two weeks, NO! THEY HAVEN’T!


jozhster 20 December, 2011 @ 7:26 pm   359

s-p3ci4L-K 21 December, 2011 @ 1:42 am   361

I want to ask why Trine costs $4.99 in NA PSN and €9.99 in EU PSN?

burkules 21 December, 2011 @ 9:43 am   362

What is happening with the Magic decks?

The NA store now has all the decks working fine…how come the decks still aren’t up on the EU store?

Not very happy with this…it might only be a total of 4 pounds, but this is putting me off buying things off the store; especially when I read comments such as the person above who over charged for the Jurassic Park game.

Catkiller1 21 December, 2011 @ 9:56 am   363

WOW, so another incorrect price on the store!


Well done SONY 😉

@ jozhster

Good luck getting your money back to your wallet, as it will take roughly 5 weeks like my BG&E HD.

@ AshTheVandal

KOF DLC has been delayed

At least Atlus are reducing the price, as an apology 😉

Catkiller1 21 December, 2011 @ 9:57 am   364

Also e-mail Customer Services as it’s free.

If you contact them by telephone, then you’ll probably spend what you’ll receive back!

andreaswm 22 December, 2011 @ 11:46 pm   365

Hey andy, i don´t know if I´m the only one, but i cannot find any sign of “Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planewalkers 2012 – Deck Pack 2 (£1.99/€2.49) Rating: PEGI 7” on the psn Store. There are several other small add-on´s which i cannot find either. Do you, or anybody else, have any clue on why this is happening? i have litterally searched everywhere.

squeek77 26 December, 2011 @ 8:29 pm   366

anyone else having trouble with resistance 3 brutality pack dlc ??? i’ve downloaded it and installed it but cannot find it anywhere on the game , i’ve deleted all updates and saved files and redownloaded them to see if tht was anything to do with it but tht ain’t done [Deleted] , could anyone in sony bother to look into this annoying problem please , btw i was looking at dlc save file and resistance 3 save file the dlc is saying UK and the other is saying EU , maybe something to do with it.

dixsterjoe90 3 January, 2012 @ 5:31 pm   367
