Andy Ys there no Xmas avatars like u.s?


i agree. There should be some Xmas avatars, also I wish capcom would show us more love in the avatars department. I’ve been wanting some mvc3 and rival schools avatars for ages but capcom don’t seem to care about eu psn :/

Hi Andy, looking forward to checking out the rest of the Sale tomorrow.

Have a great Christmas and a happy new year!

Could you please give an update to when we’ll be getting the Arkham City Challenge Map Pack that was supposed to be included in the Store Update yesterday?

Connor_mufc_1985 22 December, 2011 @ 3:16 pm   4

so no dlc discounts ? MEHHHHHHHH

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 3:28 pm    

    Do not fear, there is some DLC on sale too. CHeck it all out on the store tomorrow.


Castlevania is a must buy from that list for me.

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:20 pm   6

@ Andy

I noticed the Minis Pick & Mix yesterday. I’m glad you posted a solution, as i’ve read a few posts with purchasers having problems with it.

Will pick that up! (excuse the pun) & i’m glad to see Castlevania 😉


Trine 1 please!!!


@razordude. Same here I’ve been wanting to get castlevania on a discount for ages now and that time has finally come! :p

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:22 pm   9

@ Connor_mufc_1985

It states “PS3 add-ons” DLC ‘)

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:25 pm   10

@ Andy

Also, what timescale are we looking at, for when the content is live? Between 3-5pm like a normal update perhaps?

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 3:31 pm    

    we are aiming for a 12:00 noon publish however because there is ALOT of content it might be postponed to around 2/3pm

Connor_mufc_1985 22 December, 2011 @ 3:26 pm   11

Oops lol that’s what I get for not reading it properly I just saw the examples and immediately thought MEHHHHHHHH , I just got battlefield 3 and batman arkham city this week so hopefully they’ll have a discount for back to karkand expansion pack , wink wink sony


Save up to xx %…? how does that work..? more % if you are PSN plus member..?

flamingcarrot 22 December, 2011 @ 3:27 pm   13

ALhammadi51 22 December, 2011 @ 3:29 pm   14

Thanks a lot & have a great christmas and Happy new year .

LA ? How is it possible, we don’t have if in playstation store, only USA have it. Or we finally going to get it in store?


I hope there is a sale on DLC for games i’m getting for Christmas

WELSHDRAGON_74 22 December, 2011 @ 3:35 pm   18

hey andy merry christmas….. just a quick question r we geting last of us theme/wallpaper lik the U.S got???

Connor_mufc_1985 22 December, 2011 @ 3:36 pm   19

im currently only playing 4 games atm uncharted 3 , battlefield 3 , batman arkham city and modern warfare 3 (admittedly hardly ever play mw3 though lol) so im guessing il not benefit from these planned dlc sales : ( but would love to see a slight discount for back to karkand hint hint


hoping pixeljunk sidescroller is in that sale

i mean really hoping

had a dream a few weeks ago that I bought Trine for £2 – mi’ thinks maybe I play games too much if games going on sale filters into my dreams

HiddenAway 22 December, 2011 @ 3:37 pm   21

Will the Pick & Mix minis offer be available on the PSP store as well? I saw it on the PS3 store but not the PSP store.

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:38 pm   22

@ Connor_mufc_1985

I wouldn’t get your hopes up for a Karkand discount. If it does happen, then much kudos to the store team!

@ Andy

Further discounts for PLUS members on some of the content too??

You really are spoiling us! 🙂

Will we see any new content at all, or is it current content?

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 4:42 pm    

    Mainly exsisting content except for LA Noire Complete Edition. Hope that is OK?

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:40 pm   23

Merry Xmas to one & all! 😉


Has there been any clarification on a potential ps+ discount for Stranger’s Wrath that was hinted at in the developers blog post?

I’m hesitant to pick it up straight away in case they subsequently apply one as hinted at.

huge discounts. there will probably be something of my interest to xD

judgehusler 22 December, 2011 @ 3:41 pm   26

@Any body
any idea what the L.A. Noire Complete Edition price would be with discount? i can pick it up in the shops for £20 so if its same price or hopefully cheaper ill spend some cash on store for a change!

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:42 pm   27

Last thing to mention.

Gamestation are selling off their £35 PSN cards for £25, until the Case versions are out of stock!

Just thought i’d mention it, as £10 will net you 1 or 2 games for free 😉

nathanmoore777 22 December, 2011 @ 3:42 pm   28

is call of duty dlc in the sale, please say yes

nathanmoore777 22 December, 2011 @ 3:44 pm   29

any avatars for sale

Guri_Tricolor 22 December, 2011 @ 3:44 pm   30

awesome 🙂
cant wait to see the full list!

goonergaz 22 December, 2011 @ 3:47 pm   31

Fantastic stuff thanks – a bit OT – but can anyone at Sony confirm if game saves from the disk version of Ico & SotC will work on the digital version? I’d like to buy them but don’t really want to start again as I’m half-way to my platinum!

Have a great Christmas!! :o)

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 4:40 pm    

    I am sorry to saybut I don’t believe it does…

    Then again these games are not bad games to start from the beginning 🙂

Shifty_Geezer 22 December, 2011 @ 3:49 pm   32

Awesome deal. Can I offer a couple of suggestions for PSN store though? Firstly, downloads can be really slow, like 40 kb/s. I downloaded the Dungeon Defenders demo yesterday and it took all evening. I guess the servers are hammered by everyone looking at the same time. Would it be a better idea to roll out new content daily so there’s not such a rush, with a weekly overview?

Secondly can you please update the store so all content has a preview? I was looking at a Dynamic Christmas theme, but the ones from Lama Produksiyon have no previews anywhere. Similarly some games have no previews. I never going to plump my money down on a complete unknown!

Thanks for reading, and Merry Christmas!

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:50 pm   33

@ judgehusler

Are you sure the £20 price tag, isn’t for the original, minus DLC?

The cheapest i’ve seen, is £29.95 so if you have seen it at that price m8, pick it up ASAP!

I should imagine the price will be £30-£35 on the store!

Speak to you 2night m8 😉

JonnyPauz 22 December, 2011 @ 3:50 pm   34

when you had renegade ops for up to 55% of the actual max discount was a bit less then 51% off (on the Australian store), was this a mistake, because 51% is definately not 55%

WELSHDRAGON_74 22 December, 2011 @ 3:52 pm   35

Andy i forgot to ask in my last post is LA NOIRE full game to download from store? if so i am defnatly buying as sony has my blu-ray copy when my old ps3 YLOD disc was in ps3 and i culd not get it out and when i called ps3 helpline i explained the problem they said a courier would come to my house pick up my broke ps3 and swap it for a reconditioned one which to my delight was the next day after i made the call but i was told once my o broke ps3 got to were ever it was going the disc would be removed and sent back to me but it could take up to 2 weeks well that was about 6 months ago,,, now i hav seen it in the sale i want it again so pleasebe the full game and not just DLC

Chr15toff3e 22 December, 2011 @ 3:56 pm   36

Andy. Just want to know if any of the offers that have been available on the “12 Days” will be repeated again.

Also, I noticed a while back that “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” was offered to Ps+ users for £4 or £5, only it was taken off. Was that a mistake, or will that be one of the special offers?

Catkiller1 22 December, 2011 @ 3:59 pm   37


LA NOIRE Complete Edition, is the full game & all DLC 😉


Ah this isnt for Fin… why?

judgehusler 22 December, 2011 @ 4:01 pm   39

@catkiller1 just looked it up my bad it £25! going to wait till after new year as some online shops have sold out selling at £20, my guess is it will be that much everywhere after christmas. yea catch you later


Fins dont get this? why?

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 4:39 pm    

    Pardon? Everyone should be getting this. Do you mean the blog post or the sale itself?



same here….sony said they would give me uncharted back after YLOD but they basicly stole it! i was lucky enough to get a copy free with my ps3 slim back in 2009

judgehusler 22 December, 2011 @ 4:07 pm   42

check this out


Is the GT5 DLCs(the first ones) going to be available at this sale? Please say yes as I missed it when they where discounted for psn +…

jakster123x 22 December, 2011 @ 4:12 pm   44

Colour me intrigued

MorganTPN 22 December, 2011 @ 4:15 pm   45

Any chance of the Jurassic Park offer codes being sent out before Christmas? As they didn’t go out as you said they would yesterday.

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 4:43 pm    

    I have just talked to our CRM team and they inform me that the emails went out today, so please do check again and if they are still not there let me know.

I3loodthirsty 22 December, 2011 @ 4:22 pm   46

nice seams like some good sale offers,be nice to see what else is going to be on sale

brother-arms 22 December, 2011 @ 4:29 pm   47

Hi Andy,

By any chance will we be seeing a discounted Resident Evil 4 HD and a Resident Evil Code Veronica HD in this sale? 😉

BTW really like the festive ideas this December with the 12 deals of christmas and the festive sales 🙂

To you and the team, have yourself’s a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 😀


Can someone help me please.My pick n mix minis will not install on my psp.Psp says The download failed.You can use (minis Pick & Mix)on only one PSP System.I only have one PSP.

Guri_Tricolor 22 December, 2011 @ 4:36 pm   49

merry christmas everyone!
see you next year 🙂


So pathetic. Compared to the US sale, which has hundreds of deals we get nothing.

At least I know I wont be spending money on PSN this Christmas, so I guess I should thank you for saving my money.

    Andy Stewart 22 December, 2011 @ 4:51 pm    

    I am sorry you feel like that but don’t forget the above list is just a sample of the content, we actuall have over 100 pieces of content in this sale but to check out whats on offer you will need to jump on the store tomorrow.
