Hey Andy – good items.

Can you give me any clue as to Tombi?

And will Crysis be coming up as a deal?

1.1

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.

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

2.1

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

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

almighty-slayer 14 December, 2011 @ 13:34
4

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

Just Corpse Party for me

SONY:
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
PLEASE ANSWER.
Or at least give a hint.
Thanks!

5.1

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 @ 13:35

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

almighty-slayer 14 December, 2011 @ 13:35
7

LOL £70 FOR NEED FOR SPEED?

7.1

That was a typo, sorry getting it updated now.

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

8.1

Nothing yet dude sorry.

TheKillerSnowman 14 December, 2011 @ 13:36
9

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

9.1

Sadly as I don’t deal with the movie store I have no idea and can’t help.

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

almightyslayer;

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!

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?

13.1

It was a typo…

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

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

15

Marvel Pinball!! Yes! :D

Thanks Andy and all the team!

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

15.1

Good to hear it.

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

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?

17.1

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 @ 13:39
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 Play.com 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.

18.1

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.

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

19.1

We will be getting themes etc.. for this game but not yet.

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??

20.1

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

21.1

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!! :/

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.

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.

24.1

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.

SIXTY NINE NINETY NINE.

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 @ 13:40
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

27.1

We are looking into this, we will get them eventually but when I am not sure.

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 ‘move.me’ 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)

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 @ 13:41
32

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

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.

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.

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.

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”????

36.1

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

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 play.com 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 :(

£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.

39.1

It was a typo…

Hell-Raiser-85 14 December, 2011 @ 13:42
40

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

40.1

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 @ 13:43
41

Awesome update, cheers.
BUT!
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?

41.1

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

It was a typo, sorry.

As for the pricing, it comes from the publisher.

42

Sorry i meant Alice is a tenner.

£69.99 for Need For Speed The Run…..

Seriously?????

£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.

45

Prices are an absolute joke. Seriously.
Digital distribution is supposed to be the way forward but these prices are laughable.
PS. STILL NO PAYDAY: THE HEIST CODE OR BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL REFUND
Disgraceful service

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.

46.1

sure please contact customer services to make an offical complaint

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

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?

Cheers.

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

no ‘The Last of Us’ avatars?

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

51.1

You did but that was for Plus members only, now its available to everyone.

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

53

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

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 :/

@bunnyho

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 :P

55.1

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

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

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.

When is Chrono Cross or Trigger coming?
USA have had it for a while now….

Any update on Auditorium HD?

It’s good to see fear effect , I hope I have enough in wallet for burnout crash

Filthy_Dolphin 14 December, 2011 @ 13:46

hey can someone tell me if i need the online pass 4 resistance 3 to be able to play the brutality pack??? i really want to play it but im not forking out 7.99 for an online pass aswell..

Will echochrome ii be part of the 12 deals of christmas ? or has it been already ?

Hi Andy great Update again I got qrestion.

1. You know i told you about Sega havent done every sonic game reasle on psn and you told me to contact sega.

Well i dont know how? i was asking plz can you contact sega and try to make it happen to realse every single sonic game they ever made to come to psn. And get back in contact with me plz thx. Thx Andy your the best if you do:]

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.

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?

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 :)

Thanks

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?

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

70

Awesome, will download Corpse Party! Been looking forward to this one. :)

gotta say finally a good update. not that i´m suprised i knew most off this content was coming i´ll be getting all those psp games except naruto cause damn look at that price they must be insane
finally a good ps1 game now just for Fear effect 2 and the other eidos games that are on PEGI

@andy
any chance we getting hyperdimension neptune and america NIS avatars
and is there still any hope for the Resident evil games
i alrdy know square enix isen´t planning on bringing U.S import 1 person off their staff alrdy said so on Square enix europe blog.
i hope you guys are hard at work getting us some more ps1 games cause want all off like the alien trilogy ps1 game

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!

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.
TWO THUMBS UP, GOOD UPDATE!!

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.

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!! :D 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 :(

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)

@USERS

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.

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?

Andy,

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?

83.1

brains….

*hint*

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

@Chocobo115
you can do it here but the is 1 problem you gotta deactivate em all

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

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 play.com 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?

91.1

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

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

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.

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.

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 @ 14:05

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? :D

Either way, thanks for the new update!

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

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?

104

Still no Payday Code :(

104.1

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 :D

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

BUT

£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.

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 :)

105.1

The price was a typo…

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 :D

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 :)

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 ??

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.

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

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.

@Jesse-Blue

@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”

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.

115

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

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 ;)

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!

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).

118.1

Well said, thanks

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

120

Croc.

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.

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.

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/

:D

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?

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.

129.1

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 @ 14:25

@ 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.

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?

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

132.1

This is being investigated by Ross, watch this space.

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?

134

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

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.

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 !

@ANDY

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 @ 14:35
138

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

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?

Auditorium HD

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.

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.

143

Great updates on PSP; thank you.

144

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

@ 144

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

146

Legend of Heroes £28
Persona 2 £28

Or buy both in a bundle for £60…

How does that work then? lol. Rip off.

146.1

Typo…

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.

148

Sonic CD = Sold.

Any word on any NIS avatars?

149

i thought digital dload had the future well not with these insane stupid high prizes….

wheres trine 2???

150

Please could you have a deal on Dead Space 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and there DLC before Christmas?

150.1

Maybe :)

Sonic CD for me and Duke Nukem Forever DLC :D Nice update today.

152

Where is Sonic CD? On the actual store? :P

153

Will russian Plus subscribers get Tomb Raider Underworld or maybe some alternative?

154

Access Episode 13
Marvel Pinball – Vengeance and Virtue (4 table bundle at that price……bargain!)
Sonic CD

For me this week :)

Looking forward to Strangers Wrath & Trine 2 next week ;)

Please Crysis discount for one of the deals ANDY ;)

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..

Regards,

Shadow

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.

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? ;)

@ 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!

@Catkiller1
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,

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!!!!!

@ 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!

@ chrisandsheva

Yes just realised that ;)

I think I may need to read all of the posts, before I submit a question lol!

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

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

Once again, Andy, I have to request you practice what you preach. Would you classify your response as “polite”? Because I wouldn’t. Such sarcastic language will not do you any favours.

@ ANDY

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!

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

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.
