‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 15th February 2012

Greetings humble gamers. I come forth with a new update of the PlayStation Store.

After a bit of a wait we now have Worms Ultimate Mayhem ready and waiting to claim your precious hard drive space. Grand Theft Auto IV arrives to the PS Store as a vanilla flavour or as a bundle option complete with DLC, and House of the Dead III also shows its beautifully scary side for you to unload your rounds on.

MassEffect3_Hero_PVWIMG

The big demo this week is Mass Effect 3. Fire the first shots in the war to take Earth back! Voted Most Anticipated Game of 2012 at the SpikeTV VGAs, Mass Effect 3 puts you at the centre of an all-out galactic war – and how to wage that war is up to you. Try the demo today.

BinaryDomain_Hero_PVWIMG

Binary Domain also pops in for a visit, also having a demo on the store today. From the team that brought you Yakuza comes Binary Domain, a game set in a futuristic Tokyo where man and machine are waging war. A bit like Terminator only in Tokyo, then. But nay! It’s the gameplay system that should be of interest. Direct your team with instructions either by button commands or your very own voice – do they trust you or are you just a reckless muppet in the middle of a warzone?

Also, Far Cry 2 has its price slashed to £7.99/€9.99! Even better, if you’re a PS Plus subscriber then it is offered to you at a 100% cut. Imagine that. Oh wait, you won’t have to!

PS2-logo

Today we also enter a new phase of select PlayStation 2 titles appearing on the store. We’re taking things slow with a selection of titles (full list below), but a couple of gems to definitely check out are God Hand and Maximo.

“God or demon, what am I? It’s time for me to choose my path!” (I love the song!) Receiving a controversial review, God Hand is a sorely underexposed PS2 game that was, for many players, a truly wild ride. With crazy moves such as the “Ball Buster” and a truly colourful set of characters, God Hand was not only fun, frantic and hilarious but also pretty gosh darned hard!

Now, if that doesn’t take your fancy (why?!) then give Maximo a shot. Using the classic Ghosts ‘n Goblins as a sort of base design, the game has you take up arms as Maximo, who needs to save his lady friend and other loved ones from an evil chap called Achilles. With classic style gameplay reimagined, Maximo is sure to provide you with some great fun and amusing moments when you’re stripped to your hearty underwear whilst fighting off the undead. No man is more brave and determined than this, surely?

I hope you enjoy some of what’s on today.

Stay safe, readers.

Bye!

    worms!!!!!!!!

    What about the Vita Stuff as some people will be getting it early. Noticed the SCEA store has Vita Stuff,

    btw good to see PS2 Classics! :)

    2.1

    We’re aiming to get the Vita stuff all ready for midnight (GMT) of the release day so hopefully all of you will be able to hammer our systems in the morning when you have your Vitas in hand.

    Playstation 1 Classics we need is Casper and the Digimon Series!! :D

    Choplifter HD has received a discount on the US store today & the title still hasn’t been released within the EU yet! PMSL ;)

    5

    will the cladun psp games go on sale?, they never have iirc

    still without Machinarium … :( tell me when ???

    A cricket game they don’t release in Australia or New Zealand… Weird

    Ok so US gets Vita games 1 week before there also EXCLUSIVE 1 week early launch, and UK doesn’t? Not only is half of my friendslist already on there Vita cause of them being American, I cant even see the price of the games to maybe get them cheaper. Sony you annoy me!

    In PS2 classic I cannot see Odin Sphere or Grimgrimoire…
    Good i bought it on US PSStore.
    And the prices… 10 euro?? Same games cost 10$ in US PSS

    Sony – for real?

    If you guys wanna release Trine 2 at any point, we’re okay with that :P

    Any news on the Jurassic Park refunds? You said you would ask Ross about an update.

    I’m going to keep asking the same thing every week until I get my money back!

    11.1

    I have spoken to Ross and have been told customer service have been briefed in on those who are eligible for the refund. You will need to contact them and they will be able to identify whether you are entitled to the refund. Australian and New Zealand customers will be dealt with as a separate matter.

    Any word on Dino Crisis 1&2?????? :)

    The House of the Dead III (£4.79/€2599) LOL WTH XD

    still no marvel vs capcom 3 avatars where r they jawad im sick of askin this over and over again

    Nice to see PS2 Classics finally release within the EU :) Good prices too! Will pick up God Hand, as I enjoyed the quirkyness back on the PS2 days!

    @ Jawad

    Please can you check that the God Hand file size is correct please? 164mb seems a bit small!

    15.1

    It’s roughly 2GB. Will update the post accordingly.

    WOW good update

    Just asking about Wallace and Gromits grand adventures, how long are with it. I would also like information on Crash Bash.

    RIP. WHITNEY HOUSTON

    17

    Bloody huge update! :D

    Hey there,

    Great job on the PS2 classics, can’t wait to try them out.

    I have a couple of questions:

    1. When will we see first party/Sony published PSP games in the Power Sale? And will the Syphon Filter games be amongst them?

    2. When will Vita content be published on the Store?

    Cheers,

    Si_85

    18.1

    1. I actually don’t know. Andy deals with this bit. He’s probably keeping secrets from me!

    2. Aiming for midnight GMT on release day.

    Nice to see PS2 classics, just Access for me.

    No Trine 2 ?

    No Choplifter HD ?

    ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Hi!
    Do you know if and when the Jak HD Collection will be released on the store?
    (also a estimated price would be great)
    Thanks!

    21.1

    End of February is the plan. No price point to announce just yet.

    MAXIMO VS ARMY OF ZIN!!!!

    [DELETED]’ loved that game on PS2. I care not for your Mass Effects or your Far Crys and I thought I was gonna save some money today but I gotta play Maximo vs Army of Zin again. Had to sell my PS2 a while ago so I’ve missed that game.

    Also ask Rockstar if you can get The Warriors and Bully (Canis Canem Edit) up there. Those were my absolute fave PS2 games of all and I miss them truly.

    23

    I remember the days where an avatar would only be £0.20
    How things change. Superb update!

    Woah! 2599€ for the House of Death III! :P
    Btw, great update!
    Any news about the launch of the PS Vita store in Europe?
    Cheers! :-)

    What an awesome update!!! plenty of content for all. Just a couple of questions:-

    If you are looking for suggestion for ps2 classics, how about Onimusha Series!!!! unless of course there will be a HD release.

    Any word on the price of Vita full games via download?, we are one week from launch and still no official word. I really want to go all digital this time, but the pricing issue is really frustrating me.

    cheers

    25.1

    I’ve suggested it. Any chance I get, even.

    Vita stuff will be announce soon. I haven’t got information to pass on yet. Frustrating, I know but please bear with us.

    26

    Ghostwriting are having a big sale this week, will their games be discounted on the store?

    still no Silent Hill avatars
    US PS+ members got Far Cry 2 + 6 other games for free
    games are overpriced compared to the US prices
    gosh i hate Sony Europe

    28

    Can someone tell me thie size of Far Cry 2 ?

    When will the store be ready for ‘Vita’-buyers? I really want to know the prices of the ‘digital’ versions of the games.

    29.1

    Midnight (GMT) of release day is the aim.

    Please bring LMA Manager 2007 (PS2) to the PlayStation Store. Classic!!!Such a shame that Codemasters seem unlikely to ever release an HD PS3 version…

    So what’s the call on the vita update will people be waiting until next Wednesday at 5pm for games to go up???many people will be going midnight launch or have early I myself want digital titles but if I can purchase early all the better otherwise it’s buying early from online stores or local at midnight.please think about updating early for all digital buyers :)…

    Will vita games be launching on Wednesday for release or will it follow suit and games release Fridays along side ps3 titles?

    is psn+ only getting far cry 2 or more?

    33

    Great update. But what about the Soul Calibur V costumization pack 2? We were supposed to get that today as well.

    No Binary Domain demo for Australia? But the game has been rated by the Classification Board (MA15+) in September last year.

    2 Questions.

    1. Where is the Vita games? I’m gonna be pre-ordering it tomorrow but not sure what games to pre-order with it as I have no idea on the prices or sizes of the digital versions, considering Sony Europe is staying quite and their history of overpricing games I worried that digital Vita games are gonna be more expensive then retail.

    2. Will these PS2 Classics be playable on the Vita, either via remote play or transferring the game across?

    @ Jawad

    Is there going to be a seperate PLUS post as look at what the US receive! http://goo.gl/eCjKB

    thank god i dont have to look at all the “where are the ps2 games” just now the replacement post “where is x ps2 game” lol but nice to see we have more ps2 games straight off the bat than the usa.

    are the discounts for plus fully listed? i just ask as team 17 post states there’s going to be a plus discount on worms?
    personally i also hoped for plus discount on gta 4 complete like usa $23.99 for the bundle i just ask as its stated in the plus update your going to match the usa when same content is available?

    anyway nice update over all just hope you find time to answer my 2 points

    37.1

    Yuo are correct – Plus discount for Worms has been updated. The post will be updated shortly with other Plus updates.

    Good update, but why oh why, are you (SCEE) always late or worse with everything.

    The US plussers got six or seven more free PSN-games this week.

    The US Stroe has everything Vita already up.

    It’s like Sony doesn’t care about Europe.

    39

    wth… Why has the US plus got 80 dollars of ‘extra’ content, and we only have the Far cry game.?.. Can you ask whoever is running the EU plus to look at this and explain to me/others what the deal is, because i am seriously considering making xbox my ‘main’ console… i will not be descriminated against, nor stand still and watch it happen..

    @27

    around 3,5GB

    Is Hungry Giraffe going to be on the store for all users to purchase this week? Would love to see it :)

    sweet mite just have to buy ssx on tour lol btw what about jak x that would be sweet seen as the trilogy just got hd remake so jak x would rock btw any news on spyro for claasics ???????????????????????????????/ thanks

    43

    Jawad! Excellent update!

    Wasn’t expecting so many PS2 releases, so I’m pleasantly surprised.

    I’ll get HotD 3 and Jak and Daxter avatars ahead of the release next week.

    Speaking of next week… Can you say what the plans are for Vita content? And if the Vita content will be included in these updates? I’m so excited!!

    @Bacon_Crispies

    no vita games on store till launch, this info is taken from facebook playstation access page.

    ps2 classics are not playable on vita either directly or remote play, who knows if this is subject to change however.

    nice ps2 classics already on the store that’s cool sony keep up the good work lots of ps2 classics but not all of them good enough for me ok first thing i would say about the todays update bad news first in ps2 classics i wanted kingdom hearts and kingdom hearts II of course another bad news is that where is dampierre dlc for soul calibur V? please response to that answer and yeah house of the dead avatars and last of us avatars ok now we go to the good news good news is that i am going to get jak and daxter avatars the whole bundle thing of course far cry 2 as i am a ps plus member and the 2 demos but most mass effect 3 so that was all for me jaward shraf and i hope you will respond to all of my questions plz response thanx

    45.1

    Kingdom Hearts is always suggested. If I have anything to do with it then that won’t change however, the publisher will decide if they want to re-release it or not.

    Dampierre was a pre-order DLC from what I recall but this may (or already has) changed. I haven’t heard anything about yet, though.

    46

    will playstation vita content be available on the store next Wednesday morning just after midnight Tuesday night? Please reply :)

    i think someone broke into psn, i see ps2 classics on this list, that isnt possible since this is the eu psn

    fear effect 2 for me hopefully and wtf we got jak&daxter avatars a day after americans there must be someone doing their job right

    48

    sorry ghostlight, stupid automatic text.

    Suikoden I and II as PSN Classics when? It’s been claimed to be looked into but nothing is ever said.

    49.1

    That’s still the case. Be sure to let the publisher know you want it, too!

    50

    any chance of getting an europe demo of Armored Core V. i hope there will be one :)

    Thanks, when will the update be live?

    51.1

    It might be live a little later than normal, sadly.

    Great update. I’ll be having a bit of ‘SSX On Tour’ to get me ready for the new SSX game on the 2nd of March.

    53

    Disappointed that you are not putting any vita stuff up yet (unlike in the states where they started last week). Makes sense to spread server load. When are the vita games going live?

    If on 22nd then another Europe fail in my opinion, the servers are going to be hammered and not cope like usual on big releases (al la cod map packs etc).

    53.1

    Our aim is for midnight, GMT, on launch day.

    @klart

    the usa have vita games as the early adopters bundle went on sale today, no on in europe should officially be selling the vita yet hence no vita games on the store

    55

    Is house of the dead move compatable?

    55.1

    Yessir!

    Jawal/Ross/Andy/James

    Can you get something clarified for me please?

    Up until yesterday the game page for Hustle Kings Vita said that if you purchased the Vita version you would get the PS3 version as well, and vice versa.

    That statement has now been removed from the page. (In fact the whole multiplayer section that contained it was removed)

    So what is happening with Hustle Kings
    Do you get the other version free?
    What about people who already own Hustle Kings, do they effectively have to pay twice?
    Does everyone have to pay twice? (once for PS3 and again for Vita)
    Will existing owners get a discount on the Vita version?

    The whole issue needs clarifying.

    Thanks

    You won’t need to buy this twice, no.

    Freaking awsome update! I love it ;-)

    I would love to see Megaman Anniversary & Megaman X Collections release within the PS2 Classics.

    The PS2 Megaman Collections were never released within the EU & i’ve been asking Capcom Europe for years! The replies I receive are, “it’s down to SONY!” So please SCEE make it happen ;)

    i take it that PS2 Classics won’t come with trophies? :(

    60

    My jaw has dropped, so much great content… SO MUCH! The Twisted Metal delay really made me upset but now that I have many DD games to purchase I think I’ll be fine till March :D

    Cant see anything I want,yet. Importing Twisted metal this weekend,and just done a sub on DCU.
    Will get god hand at some point,but no Trine still sucks.

    62

    Good work on PS2 classics – make sure you focus on the rare and less received titles, such as those on HD Classics range. God Hand and Maximo are fantastic examples, give us more!

    66

    I’m also awaiting those Marvel vs Capcom 3 avatars (Resident Evil 5 ones as well).. any news at all?

    Thanks in advance

    Great update. Finally PS2 games!

    decent update, when can we expect the tester on our network?
    And while you @ it, release the videostore in the benelux :)

    69

    ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND SONY,I can’t pay €2599!!!! for the HOUSE OF THE DEAD 3

    Hi Jawad
    Question unrelated to update but would appreciate answer all the same. I went to rent the Captain America film from video section (only 99p for anyone who hasn’t spotted it yet) but get error message saying on of my other PS3 (I have 4 active systems) is activated for video content and I have to deactivate to be able to use on different PS3. Does this mean I have to lock out one of my other PS3 just so I can use another for video content? It’s bad enough I can only download game content to 2 PS3 now but this aswell??? Why is video content different to game content?
    Sorry its off topic but if you can’t answer can you pass it on to someone who can please
    Thanks

    70.1

    Sounds like you need to deactivate your account on one of the other units. I’d recommend asking customer services (http://bit.ly/rudFIV) if you have further issues.

    Oh, Jawad:

    What is up with the Arkham Asylum dlc? I’m just looking out for new adopters who won’t be able to get the Joker dlc. Currently only ONE dlc, and that is the map pack.

    Seriously, no vita content? Please get us some info on when it’s happening. US get systems and games a week early, not EU.

    Don’t Sony understand that people like me would be showing off the system to friends and family, doing your marketing for you. It’s very very irritating, Sony have made a fantastic device (as they often do) and are doing their usual appalling job of marketing (as they always do).

    Worms for me! And no need for the PS2-titles. I still have plenty of those on disc. But cool for the people that want them…

    Question, though… when are we getting “THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’96” on NEOGEO Station.

    PLEASE can you try to get the Monster Hunter Freedom Unite avatars onto the PS Store? The US got them last year.

    Jak & Daxter only avatars? O.o
    When there will be games?

    77

    I fear the PS2 ‘classics’ may turn into “Disney games” much like the PS1 ‘classics’ did :I …

    …Looks like it’s already started >________>

    78

    I did not think the dungeon defenders dlc would be free! but hey what awesome update,this is really good work :)

    79

    Any chance of adding Drakengard or Kindom Hearts games to PS2 pool in the future?

    80

    Please please please can you tell us when games/demos etc support Move and/or 3D,

    You did it a for a short while….

    if you have plus dont buy worms if its not discounted, it was said by team 17 it would be.

    i say this because the same thing happened with oddworld and a few weeks after it was released the title had a significant plus discount

    Does PS+ people get the House of the Dead III dynamic theme free like the US did, and what about HOTDIII avatars? US got them, also free for PS+.

    is burgertime world tour coming anytime soon? thanks

    Amazing update !!!
    Wow God Hand is one of the first PS2 classics to hit (no pun intended) the store I never thought I’d see the day …
    And Binary Domain demo too, cheers chaps !

    85

    Question: it was mentioned on the blog last week that there would be a 30% discount on House of the Dead III for PS+ users. Is that discount price not available yet?

    PS2 Game request: SSX Tricky (best PS2 game ever!)

    85.1

    It is available. The post will be updated accordingly so new readers are aware.

    @ BigPaja

    DITTO!

    I would love to see most of the titles that you listed release! Some of the rarer ones are already within the US store, so make an account & purchase a card from Ebay like I have! Mostly the PS1 RPG titles & the Castlevania titles are the titles that I purchased ;)

    You can purchase a $50 card from Ebay, for roughly £35 so not too bad! If anyone knows where to purchase them cheaper then please let me know!

    Kind Regards

    how come were having to pay £19.99 for GTA IV when the us price is $19.99 shouldn’t the uk price be lower then that due to currency rates?

    I wasn’t expecting the PS2 Classics, I hope we see some more…(trying to be polite)… popular titles making their way to the selection soon.
    Savin’ up for my Vita! lol

    Am I the only one who finds it really funny that the street cricket game isn’t available in Australia and New Zealand?

    Brilliant update this week. Hoping we get some more great PS2 games soon.

    @ killah_fury

    SSX Tricky would be fantastic :)

    Hi

    Would it be possible to have the “heads-up” the day before? rather than when you physically update the store, as it doesn’t feel much of a “heads-up” more like a “this is what the update is”

    Also the US website seems so much more polished and user-friendly than ours, it would also be nice to have a blog share so we could all put in our ideas to make SEN/PSN a much better experience and would help us feel…well…more loved.

    Anyway keep up the good work

    No House of the Dead III demo? :(
    I thought we were supposed to be getting that this week ..

    OMG when my money is low you release the long awaited Ps2 classics but that list is huge but not all are great yes were odin sphere etc.

    but it a good start im so getting maxino vs zen army That will be my 1st Ps2 classic on my account.

    that price is right 10 dollar = 8 quid,

    so i give this update a very good update my god i never thought i say that hehe. :)

    At last PS2 Classics!!!!!

    A great warmup for the pending Mass Effect 3 release would be if you could secure a decent price reduction on Mass Effect 2, make it more in line with retail pricing :)

    97

    Still no Trine 2… can’t believe it

    98

    I’m curious- will next week’s update by early? I’d like to download my Vita games and be able to install them from my PS3 to the Vita as soon as I arrive home with it Wednesday afternoon. (I’ve only 1 9am lecture on Wednesdays, heading to Game straight after to pick-up my pre-order).
    Could we please have a Tuesday update? Or early Wednesday morning?

    Anyway, great update this week, although it’s only the demos for me, considering I’m going to be spending around €500 on Vita, Games and Accessories next week (gulp).
    Nice pricing on the PS2 Classics as well.

    VideoGammerMan 15 February, 2012 @ 13:36
    99

    Still no Trine 2, can’t believe it…

    100

    Please, if someone can help it would be greatly appreciated ;)

    My PLUS subscription will end soon & i’ve read numerous posts of disgruntled customers losing their content as it’s not carrying over to their new subscription. Is there a short cut to re-activate the free titles, to update the end date, or not?

    Are we in europe also going to get Killzone as a PS2 classic?

    America is getting it, but it has been a little delayed for them.

    102

    Any chance to see Killer7 in PS2 classics?

    Now thats what I call a update. Will be getting hosue of the dead later on and maybe something else as well :)

    It’s a great update and all but I can’t help but remember the early days of the PS3 when PS2 compatibility was removed so that Sony could ‘focus on next generation gaming’ but now look at what they’re releasing…(*shock*) PS2 classics!

    Fantastic store update. Fsrcry 2 free? Lovely.

    Great to see the PS2 Classics appear, Cell Damage is great fun with friends, a bit like wacky races.

    @Catkiller1

    mine expired then net time i loaded a game the expired on date had changed to my new sub date so u should not have any issues.

    umm why cant we have Move Street Cricket in Australia and New Zealand. its only one of the BIGGEST sports we play.

    109

    First off: Jawad, that price on House of the Dead can’t be right. 2599 euro? lol wut.

    Second: Oh God my wallet. All those PS2 classics. Y u do that?! D-: This is going to murder my bank account.

    Ah well, I’m okay with this. Arcade Classics, Bust A Bloc and Cel damage are mine, yay.

    Lastly, asking again: Any chances of seeing Brigandine on the EU store as an US import?

    110

    Will the PS Store be updated earlier on PS Vita launch day?
    I hope so, would be awful having to wait till 5 too download content.

    110.1

    Our aim is for midnight, GMT, on launch day!

    Whats the deal with Trine 2? I’m getting fed up now it’s getting past a joke. What exactly is the problem with it? It can’t be a UK thing because Xbox and Steam have it and it cant be a Playstation thing because the US have it on PS3.
    Sorry for the rant I just want some clear answers.

    112

    It saddens me that SSX On Tour is loaded and not SSX 3. Still, I guess that means there is more chance of an HD remake/remaster of SSX 3 in the future.

    113

    @ Sizzon

    Killzone has been delayed, as Guerilla have decided to remaster it in HD with trophies, instead of releasing the title to PS2 Classics! ;)

    @ Hayzink

    So I should browse through my free titles & launch each one to update the date? If so that’s great & thanks! :) Also have you purchased Gotham City Imposters yet? The servers are encountering issues, but these should be resolved tomorrow!

    If the unlock key still isn’t within the latest section, then use “all games, PS3 games, GI, Gotham City Imposters & the unlock key is the 2nd file! Obviously glitched when they uploaded it last week!

    lastly before i get a PSN paper voucher i want to know are Ps2 in 16:9 ratio no 4:3 i hope it 16:9 but time will tell most PS2 have a option to use a 50hz or switch to 60hz.

    going out now.

    115

    Damn!

    Need to purchase a bigger Hard Drive! Will have to upgrade from 320gb to 500gb me thinks!

    HotD3.. Someone asked if it’s move support, it is, But if your asking that then you probably don’t know that HotD is a on rails shooter, the overkill game was very frustrating, ie it kept moving you along before you had a chance to grab ammo or collectables, i didn’t know it was a on rails game so was disapointed, but the price of this new one isn’t much, so i will be getting it… btw you can just use your controller as well.
    Also as said above, store isn’t releasing Vita games till release day, so unless they update early, (doubftul?), it’s a 5o clock wait for everyone, and am sure the US store had theirs ready before the early adopters got hold of thiers, in fact isn’t (or wasn’t ) meant to be today that they got them, it was just one weeks early access wasn’t it,?..

    Where is Killzone? :( Best game on PS2!

    Great Update, however I am constanly getting error 80023102 whenever I am trying to buy something and add funds to my wallet..anyone else getting this problem?

    if the vita content isnt going to be up before i recieve my vita (as soon as the shop door opens) i will be buying physical copies. seems mad that sony dont have them up early so people can buy them ready for getting the vita. its not like we can play them till we get our vitas. once again sony miss the boat.

    @monty450

    I had the same issue, turned out my card had expired and I forgot to update my card details with the new details. Dunno if that might be the issue.

    Well, bloody hell. Pardon if I’m being a bit rude, but it’s a bit bloody late for the post isn’t it?

    I’m dying to get my hands on Mass Effect 3’s demo but I hate not knowing when the update is going to be done. Are y’all droppin’ the ball or something, because you haven’t put what time the update will be, and when it’ll be over.

    Once again, I apologise if I’m being too blunt but I’m a blunt person. I prefer things to be told straight up rather than beating around the bush. Regardless, great update. I might grab Far Cry if I have enough room on my PS3 for it.

    Also, the beginning list looks good for PS2 games. God Hand, hmm..I might see if I can grab it when I get chance to.

    122

    Good update. Most PS2 classics aren’t real classics but i won’t complain about it too much.

    But still not Trine 2. Come on guys, this is really annoying.

    And where are the Vita games? I will pick up my Vita at the official Vita launch in Berlin one day ahead of the street date and there will be three vouchers for games included. The store better be up with those games in time.

    @68
    As far as I know video can only active on 1 ps3 at a time, so you have to deactivate the other ps3 first.
    If its active on a ps3 you dont have any more, you can deactivate your ps3/psp at http://www.qriocity.com just sign in go to account / media and devices and click game, this should deactivate all ps3/psp’s linked to the account.
    hope this helps.

    124

    So.. where is Noel’s Battle Costume DLC for FF XIII-2 that america got last week?

    Also any news on when the omega DLC will be released to everyone?

    @SuGaR_rAy_RiDeR

    Thanks for a reply however I have checked everything & everything is alright…I have used 2 ccs and I still get the same error :/

    @catkiller

    its up to you mate i dont see the point tbh as it just boots like normal and the date changes it does not download a patch or anything so id just play it when you plan to play it and it will sort itself out.

    not bought gotham no point atm as im abusing lovefilm for all its worth and going through blu ray titles like mad, just got portal 2 and splatterhouse through today and im going to make a start on them as soon as im done with chains of olympus (thanks for the freebie on the god of war collection volume 2 sony customer service)

    im also clearing titles that i have 100% or got platinum off my hdd as i prob wont touch them again, its nice to see that you have over 200 games(as you know ;) ) but dont see the point in wasting space on games im no longer going to play and if i ever do ill just re-download them.

    @SteDE (#101):

    Will you and all your ilk stop whining already?! This is the largest update by far and we actually got MORE PS2 classics than the US store, several of them that aren’t available on said store at all – and yet people like you keep whining and moaning that they want more!

    I can’t stand people like you – give them a hand and they want the whole arm up to the shoulder…

    128

    Still no Trine 2? And why no GrimGrimoire or Odin Sphere among the PS2 classics? they’ve been out in the US for ages…

    Great update! Far Cry 2 and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem, for me! :D

    130

    You guys know you have a new console coming out next week, right?

    Where are all the vita preview videos, feature pieces and trailers? Sure I can get them on Youtube, but why can’t I also get hi res videos straight to my PS3?

    SCEE: I love your products but you never seem to join the dots.

    131

    hi Jawad nice to see PS2 classics in our store i want to ask some questions 1) are we ever getting Mass effect 3 , Tekken 6 & uncharted 3 avatars please? ask publishers if they can make it happen those avatars would be ace 2) are we ever gonna get suikoden 2 in european store? thanks & cool update i hope you answer me :)

    132

    also you’re doing a good job keep it up :)

    @GenocideHeart. I can whine about whatever I want. It may be a large update but not everyone cares about PS2 classics. My post was regarding the PS Plus side of things, nothing more.

    134

    Still no Choplifter HD, Res Evil 2 and 3?

    Well done on God Hand, how about Rogue Galaxy for PS2?

    135

    any news on the uk release of wanted corp.

    136

    Damn, Poland will never forgive you about that World Ping Pong game – we are sending Anonymous squads to your office right now ;)

    137

    i would of had Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition if it had the ps+ discount like the americans got but then again we should be use too going without

    138

    LOL – Don’t mention Anonymous. The Sony ninjas will get you.

    139

    Soooooo, where are the Vita games at? I should have mine Monday or Tuesday and I kinda want some games to play on it…. Would like to have them downloaded ready anyway…

    Also want to see if you’re gonna screw us on digital prices or not.

    Thanks muchly.

    140

    @ Hayzink

    Come on mate you know me, i’m aware of the Data Utility files so yes, I delete them on a regular basis!

    With having so many games I just need to 100% them, before deleting them, unless the games are worth keeping! The majority of the files are episodic content like Back to the Future, Strong bad etc I just need to get round to playing them, as i’m a hoarder at the moment! If a title goes on SALE i’m a sucker for purchasing it while I can!

    Please, release Twisted Metal Black as PS2 classic!! *-* And with the cutscenes please (no EU censored version). THIS IS ALL I WANT!

    Hi there,

    Cool stuff – PS2 Classics and Fear Effect 2. I’m about to buy first FE today. And the question for this update :) – can we expect a Koudelka game in the future?

    just had a look at god hand on youtube am i missing something here as it looks nasty and not in a good way but people talk about it like its fantastic

    Hmmm… Finally for the PS2 classics but most of them are just from Disney and even Midas (in which I really hope not). To me I find the PS2 lanuch titles a wee disappointing. what about The Getaway, WipEout Fusion and even Ridge Racer V but instead we get mediocre borefest we never play. If there’s anything from Blast! Entertainment I’ll get even more dissapointed.

    I mean I own tons of PS2 games and heck, even the US has better PS2 games than us. Also for the PSone but no offence, Square Enix is the ONLY company that releases good games for PSone Classics now. *sigh* Why does 2012 has to suck? You know I’ll just stick to my PS2 and also, I already own FC2 so I’ll just move on.

    Shou_Kobayashi 15 February, 2012 @ 14:18
    145

    *sigh*

    Still the Warhammer 40.000 skins are missing… I think it’s safe to say that PSN Europe screwed up severely because THQ is saying it should be up already… way to go … :( In case you are still asking yourself “Waht skins?”

    Blood Raven and Legion of the Damned are missing… is it so hard to put them up?

    Really, I’ve been questioning since october for Blood Raven skin and November for the Legion of the Damned ones… all I get is a “Should be there” from THQ and a “HUH?” from Sony… :(

    Nice update is there any news for suikoden for PS1 Classics

    147

    @Catkiller1
    I cant play of download anything from my first year ps+ its been like that as of September and sony still dont know what the problem is.

    Very cool to see a bunch of PS2 games on PSN, although it’s unfortunate I’m not really that interested in any of them. Well, maybe Mr Golf if I feel like playing a golf game some time.

    I look forward to the day when these games are offered on PSN.
    Musashi: Samurai Legend
    Okami
    Steambot Chronicles
    Suikoden 3
    Suikoden 4
    Suikoden 5
    Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven
    Yakuza
    Yakuza 2

    Still waiting for these PS1 classics to appear too.
    Chrono Cross
    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
    Suikoden 1
    Suikoden 2

    @119 Thanks for answer
    Problem is the PS3 that’s active for video is my old one that I leave at my mum’s for when I stay there and don’t really want to deactivate a working PS3 or lose all the content I have on there

    Great update, lot’s of good stuff.

    But still no Trine 2…. :/

    151

    @BigPaja
    Thats quite some list of ps2 games you’re asking for, are you one of the lucky euro lotto winners, as theres got to be around £5to600s worth there, going off EU store pricing at least. The main ps2 classic i want to see, and buy, is gta san andreas, as i doubt it will ever get the HD/Trophies makeover, As for the rest, be nice to have the choice but i don’t even have the spare gaming time for some recent big hitters, and the speed and frequency of new releases is just mind boggling, i mean where have all the different new games come from, But like many i think quality is better than quantity.. But man, they sure know how to hype up even the worst games now, making you actually believe that ‘this’ title is THE one to buy.

    152

    Sony this is wrong!! I pre-orded the system day 1 heck im already paying £50 extra for 3G im glad you give us wipeout 2048 for £5 but come on the US Store gets updated with prices and games and you leave us out seriously? Were just as important they get the system early i get that but i got no idea how much to add to my wallet right now cause no prices that may cause people to buy less

    Mass Effect 3 <3<3<3

    And Ps2-classic good to finally see it! :D

    Damn good update sir, well done!

    154

    @SteDE (#129):

    Then go bother the people responsible for the PS Plus content. I don’t know if you missed the memo, but Jawad IS NOT the one who decides what goes on Plus, he stated that multiple times – just as Andy before him was not the one deciding it either.

    Bother the right people, not him. He already has enough on his plate with the rest of the whiners without you aggravating him even more.

    Jesus, people, am I the only one using logic here?!

    @catkiller1

    i did expect you to but it was just a little nod just incase lol

    i just got rid of all my monkey islands, need to do sam and max now and then strong bad which i hate and wish i never bought :(

    never got the 100% in bttf in first run through and cant be bothered doing it again but as i own them not through plus i can do them anytime, that being said it does not matter to me if games are plus or not as my intention it to always subscribe because even when we get the shaft compared to the usa the service is still worth the £40 py

    again SCEA 1-0 SCEE :(

    157

    Can you try and bring us PS2 classic ‘yugioh duelist of the roses’ please and can you send an e-mail to ‘the behemoth’ regarding the DLC pack ‘legend of the blacksmith'(Purple Knight).

    158

    @ chrisandsheva

    BigPaja lists were PS1 Classics! ;)

    @chrisandsheva

    well do i have some good potential news for you rockstar listed gta3 and vc on esrb ratings board to be released on ps3 in what looks like a potential hd classics br it would shock me if those 2 came out and not san andreas.

    so fingers crossed on that one :)

    2599 Euro of House Of The Dead 3 blimey the store is getting expensive :).

    161

    @Opt1mus76
    you wont lose any content, when you sign back in to your old ps3 just go to system activation under account management to re-activate the content on that ps3.

    162

    Will there ever be Spider-Man or Fantastic Four PS2 classics??

    And will Digital Comics ever come to the PS3?

    Sony I can’t De Activate any consoles that I don’t own anymore :(. I’m currently using a 60GB Launch PS3 on my Last Activation through my PSN & I don’t want that to go Bang before De-Activating it either. I’ve had 3 PS3’s Activated on the Account that suffered Over Heating & YLOD. My Main 40GB PS3 that suffered YLOD had also had the Video Store Activated on it as well and that can’t be De-Activated… What do I do? I’ve had this account since 2007 I don’t want to start all over again. I’ve bought so much and got so many Trophies…

    I know the PS2 games only just came up on the store today. But I have a request. Please ask Capcom to bring Resident Evil Outbreak and Resident Evil Outbreak File 2 to the store. I would buy the right away.

    Can everyone whinging about seemingly lower US prices please get with the program… US PRICES DON’T INCLUDE SALES TAX!!!

    On a more positive note, how can I concentrate on playing the free Far Cry 2 when there’s Hannah Montana AND Disney Princess Enchanted Journey to play??? ;)

    166

    1 week before release and we still don’t know the download prices of vita games….. as for ps2 classics any idea if they will be able to run on vita in the future? looking at it’s specs and what you guys claim about it’s abilities they should be able to… hmm also is gravity rush out on the 22nd in the store or at a later date? :S

    167

    Hello Mr Jawad Thanks for ps2 Classics
    just wanted to give a game which is a great classic called dark cloud
    will Jak & Daxter HD Collection be available in store???
    by the way a reply for all questions will be nice if not il ask another time

    @ GenocideHeart

    then plus should not be listed in this post at all if the person running the post is not expected to answer any questions on it.
    also if he wants to ask about it what does that have to do with you its not as if he is spamming or anything like that.

    169

    @GenocideHeart isnt this the post for the store update that includes ps+ content….i think it is so SteDE is posting in the right place.if your using logic then wouldnt logic tell you that if they have so many whiners as you put it wouldnt that mean they are not doing a good job.
    if a person is paying for ps+ they have every right too moan if they are not happy with the service

    SteDE i agree with what your saying

    @160:

    That was a glitch, it supposed to be 25.99 XD

    LOL! They’ll fix it once the store is updated by tonight, I’d say around after 5pm GMT.

    Wow what an update, nice one guys!

    why is it that the US gets monster hunter freedom unite? please tell me its coming to the EU store soon :(

    174

    were is the vita stuff i need to no how much they will be on the store

    175

    Any chance Move Street Cricket will come to Australia and New Zealand? It’s one of the biggest sports in either country and there aren’t many games of the sport anywhere. It’s very strange that it’s available in dozens of countries which don’t even know what cricket is. I know it’s probably the developer or producer who decides where it’s published, but any sort of reason, please?

    @catkiller1

    is that confirmed? i had not seen that news anywhere thats why i ask

    @Marky264 You shouldn’t have a problem with games you haven’t previously downloaded to your dead consoles (i.e. games you have bought since then). Sony have promised a web interface to administer activations, so keep with the new games antil that comes out and you’ll be fine.

    PS. What have you done with your dead ones? I managed to fix my YLOD 60GB with a hairdryer, i.e. fixed long enough to deactivate, reformat and sell…

    Good to see PS2 Classics at last, will have some fun with Farcry 2 as well.

    Any news on Fallout: New Vegas DLC reductions? Andy/Ross said they were looking into it some while back, and the ‘GOTY’ package is out now. Xbox and PC users were able to pick up the DLCs for £2 each, it’d be nice to have the same opportunity to fill in the ones we missed.

    Store is improving of late, good stuff :)

    179

    @ Hayzink

    Yes it was confirmed. I’ll find a link mate & post in a bit!

    180

    Lots of PS2 Classics. Shame not one of them interests me. When can we expect the likes of Half Life, GTA, Tekken 4/5, Street Fighter Anniversary, Killzone, War of the Monsters etc.?

    Hi Jawad,

    Any chance Catherine will have a demo or a trial / unlock like the US got this week?

    I take it there is no trophy support on PS2 classics?

    I noticed a price for Journey in Japan has been announced – can you tell us what price it will be when it hits the eu STORE? Out 14th March?

    Do you have any information on SSX dlc? Just wondered if the pre-order bonuses will be made available to everyone once the game is out.

    Cheers.

    @catkiller1

    noooooooo, not buying them again then lol

    183

    Is The Getaway going to be added to the PS2 Classics store?

    to anyone asking.

    ps2 classics are untouched ps2 ports which mean they have no trophies.
    i bought one from usa a while back and can also confirm this first hand

    Good Update. Worms, more Saints Row DLC and Road Trip Adventure!!!

    I loved that game, it was a hidden gem on PS2. I urge people to try it out. It’s quirky, strangely addictive, open world story gameplay and CAR FOOTBALL was just ace against a friend. At a bargain price too.

    ‘Heads up’ on being yet again done over by SCEE

    PSN Games Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition (Bundle) PS+ Price: $23.99 = our price £27.99 # We Get No Plus Discount

    Discounted PS3 Full Game: Grand Theft Auto IV: $19.99 = Our price £19.99,

    and lets not forget

    The House of the Dead III PS+ Price: $4.89 = We get no discount

    — ROSS/JAMES ANYBODY COMMENT ON THIS —

    187

    Mass Effect 3 has a USK rating of 16 (not 18 like the PEGI rating). So what’s the reason to omit the demo from the German store this time?

    are the mods on holidays cause it seems to be theres a lot of unanswered questions on here.

    give us some vita info please. ma arse is on fire with my money burning a hole in my pocket!!!!!1

    @AndyBeans

    Just called Sony! Wow that was alot easier than what I remember calling Sony about it Two Years ago… They guided me through how I could De Activate every single Sony Machine I’ve owned. You can manually de activate them all it seems! But Video Store De Activation has to be sent to the Team who deals with it and then I should get an email regarding once its been De Activated!

    And I sold all my previous ones for Parts, I got my Epic 40GB Machine up and running myself by using thermal paste and putting it back together… Lasted for 4 Days then died again but gave me enough time to get some Save Data before the new PSN Online Data Scheme was implemented. I have to say I’m impressed with what they can do now!

    I myself am a PS+ owner, and you don’t see me whining and moaning all over the place, do you?

    This is a good Store update, but do I see people thanking Jawad for a week of great content? No, I see them complaining because they want more stuff. Even though of all the PS2 classics, only two are on the US store, the rest we got first.

    If you want to whine about Plus content, then do it, but AT THE VERY LEAST have the decency to also thank Jawad for getting us a ton of stuff. Otherwise, I frankly couldn’t blame him for quitting this thankless job since we Euro players pretty much do nothing but complain and whine even when the Store actually is good for once. What motivation is there to get us awesome stuff if this is what we give in return?

    ps am so glad i got rid of plus cause it still seems no one is happy with it.

    elite is next out the door. waste of money

    @ Hayzink

    I can’t find the link, but judging by it being published by SONY & not Rockstar, it’s more likely of a HD collection :)

    That is a lot of PS2 Classics :P If you could(i doubt it tho) do that every week then that would be amazing(but looking at the US PS2 Classics they hardly get any more each week) Oh well its a start, thanks;)
    + PS2 Classics i would LOVE on PSN are –
    TimeSplitters 1,2 + 3 :P
    Taito Legends 1 + 2
    SSX 1,2 + 3
    ApeEscape 2 + 3
    BurnOut 3
    COD 1,2 + 3
    GT 3 + 4
    KillZone 1
    Quake 3
    R&C PS2 games

    Saying that i wouldn’t mind HD(with Trophies)updates of those games really:P

    Hi ya,

    Do you know if house of the dead works with move?

    Also are there any plans for it to be part of plus, as dont want to buy it only to find out i could of have had it free next month.

    cheers

    @catkiller

    hope restored ;)

    @DOMisCLASS

    dont think it will be free but theres a good chance of a discount soon as the usa got one.

    The House of the Dead III (£4.79/€2599)
    Really? 2599€ that’s REALLY expensive =D

    198

    @hayzink

    thanx will wait a bit to get it then

    199

    €2599,- for The House of the Dead III is a bit much, don’t you think?
    And if it’s supposed to be €25,99, it’s still a lot for such an old game…

    200

    @GenocideHeart just because your happy with the update that doesnt mean everyone else is and i dont see why you think everyone should be thankful for stuff they dont want/like or need.if you happy be happy just dont expect everyone else too be

    Glad to see the PS2 classics making onto the store. Do you know if you’ll be putting any Kingdom Hearts games on there or are you just waiting for the HD collection to be released later this year (rumoured)?

    202

    Holy cow, what an update.
    For all the complainers about PS2 releases this update should shut them up for some months.
    Of course true complainers will never be happy. :)

    Now we only need Trine 2.

    thanks for the reply on the worms issue jawad

    Hm, didn’t realise that counted as a swear word. Even kids in the local primary school use that. Anyways no matter I’ll remember that next time. Still looking forward to replaying Maximo vs Army of Zin. Nothing much else interests me on the store today (I seriously found Mass Effect 2 to be a horribly overrated, clunky and tedious experience) but I’m still enjoying last week’s update of Shank 2, Simpsons and Uncharted 3 DLC so got plenty to keep me entertained. I do remember God Hand being quite intriguing when I tried it out in a game import store a long time ago but can’t remember if it was a game I would want to buy. Would be nice to have another go on it before buying if possible.

    @ Hayzink

    ;)

    Will VITA compatible PSP Games have their descriptions updated by next week?

    I am very happy with Gungrave and SSX On Tour, remember playing those for weeks. Any chances for Persona 3 FES or Persona 4? I’d sell my soul (not literally unfortunately :( ) for those two gems!

    208

    I’m hoping with the release of Far Cry 2 for free for PLUS members, the online community starts booming again!

    woo hoo loving the replys so far jawad .

    i now find out as i already own hustle kings im going to get it free for my vita :)

    see reply to 56 :)

    @catkiller

    i have read that as a game it has its fair share of glitches that make some trophies unobtainable hope this is not true.

    @202

    lol are you mad people will just move on to why is “THIS” ps2 game not on store now lol

    Still no resolution to my missing Renegade Ops DLC code or the Minis issue.

    212.1

    Renegade Ops issue is being resolved but will not be a quick process. Remember, if you pre-ordered then the issue will be fine.

    I have not received any further word on minis.

    215

    House of Dead price.
    According to ps plus update from 1st Feb we are getting a 30% off on it, which Ross said was £1.79, i remember as i posted saying that it must be a cheap priced game if 30% is that much, Also to the guy asking about move, i answered that on page 3(i think), but answer is yes, but i would advise you to find my last comment about it, as i added some info you should really know.

    “Nice hobbitses…”

    re: Hustle Kings

    “You won’t need to buy this twice, no.”

    Could you clarify please.

    Does that mean, that as an existing owner of the PS3 version, I will get the Vita version for free?

    Because in my case, that is the only way that I won’t have to buy it twice.

    Thanks.

    217.1

    If you already own it on PS3 then yes, it will work fine on the Vita as they are crossplay titles.

    218

    Can we expect Rez, I haven’t played it in years, and is also one of the most anticipated to be released on PS3 for me, would also be a brilliant in HD.

    Hey Jawad, i’d like to know when EU PS store goes live on Vita? I know it’s gone live in US a couple of days ago but what about us?

    hmmmm, getting fed up of being shafted by the US PS+ team who always seem to get a LOT more than us. I’m half tempted to dump the crappy european one and buy the US on instead, but then all the PS+ games i’ve collected in the last 18 months will stop working. Kinda trapped with that.

    Also, for the guy who said “US GAMES DONT INCLUDE SALES TAX!!” and thought this was a good argument for price discrepancies, has that guy even bough anything from the US store?

    I’ve bought loads from there and not been taxed more than a total of about $2? I got Back to the Future from there for $20, and my tax on it was $1.29

    Anything that has cost me less than $15 has never attracted tax, and you know what? GTA 4 being $23.99, even with $2 tax is still only $25.99, compared to the Euro version which is £27.99 (which is roughly $44) but hey, we should be happy right? cause clearly this is fine as our price is full and doesn’t show that tiny taxable amount.

    221

    now bring on ssx tricky

    Oh, and great update for the rest of the store btw. The PS2 classics are very very welcome, it’s a pretty awesome update. But I was really hoping we’d get more from Plus this year after promises we were given. We are two months in, and so far it’s been pretty damned poor compared to the US version… I really wanted Inferno Pool, as well :(

    @chrisandsheva

    we are getting a discount jawad has confirmed it on 2nd page it seems most of the plus discounts have not been listed but he say’s the post will be updated with them later on today

    @ 218 Carmanen:
    Well if you use the laws of averages in SCEA to SCEE timed releasesm then I’d see our Vita store going live sometime late next year when the Vita “Went” slim model gets released. Ohh, We can’ts Waitses!!!

    Far Cry 2 for free for PS Plus members …awesome!

    226

    So we get discounts, but nowhere near as much free content as the US got! :(

    Will we receive further free titles for PLUS members?

    Jawad please can you ask Ross?

    Kind regards

    226.1

    Some extra bits may be coming. It’s a little staggered from what I am aware.

    This is a bit of a long shot question… but are EA planning on releasing PS2 classic’s on to the store?

    I would love to have the old fifa’s on my console and The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, Return Of The King had to be one of my all time favourite games and I wasn’t exactly a huge fan of the films

    And like many other’s have asked, when will Vita content be published to the store?

    Thanks

    227.1

    It’s possible but considering the titles you mentioned they heavily involve other properties so it’s not as simlpe as one would hope.

    228

    PS2 Classics are NOT for PSP I assume ? Means it´s era is over …

    so when does it actually update? i want mass effect 3!

    5 years too late is better than not at all.

    I just hope the “none gaming” Sony executive who proclaimed “who wants to play PS2 games on a PS3?” while attempting to justify not licencing the PS2 emulation software in order to save a few quid, is back working at Burger King.

    Believe me, I actually knew this chap many years ago, and he really was that stupid.

    @ GaiaScythe

    there not for vita either so it does not mean that at all, but as theres a new sony handheld on the market it would be natural for the old one to wind down just like any other console.

    ps1 wound down with ps2 and that wound down with ps3 its just the way its always worked

    Zen Pinball – Epic Quest Table and perhaps God Hand for me this week.

    Here are my PS2 ‘classics’ requests,
    Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon
    Escape from Monkey Island
    Fahrenheit (unless it’s getting a HD remaster)
    Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks
    Myst III Exile
    NBA Street Vol 2
    Psychonauts (unless it’s getting a HD remaster)

    Whoop, Fear Effect 2, Maximo and God Hand!
    Awesome update, thanks! <3

    Thanks for clearing that up Jawad :)

    235

    Any news on Hector: Badge of Carnage appearing on PlayStation Store?

    Telltale Games mentioned it was coming soon in their trailers, but I’ve seen nothing on it yet.

    Will this (as well as Sam & Max: Save the World (i.e. Season 1)) be on the Store sometime soon?

    I’m listening to Bjork’s Biophilia track Hollow, which is how I’m steadily feeling awaiting the store to update. It’s usually upadated by now isn’t it hobbitses?

    Oh, and a request fro the blog team. Please can you start commissioning some dynamic game related theme’s? After all, this is a game related community. I know I’m not the only one sick of beach themes, water falls, and rain drops on leaves. Bit of a joke.

    Meed some inspiration? Look on XBL for ideas.

    I respect you have to appear to show a lot of content, but content related to your target audience would seem a prudent move.

    Yay, yet more extortion from Sony. I paid £15 a few months back for this Saints Row DLC, I got it in a strategy guide. Only reason I bought the guide.
    Thanks Sony. When the new Xbox comes out I’ll be swapping to that.

    Will PS2 Classics work on Vita?

    240

    Move Street Cricket, not available in Australia.

    I forgot that Cricket is our national sport.

    241

    @ Jawad

    Is the Arcade Classics Vol 1 the SNK release or the awful Playit release?

    Please release classics such as Midway Arcade Treasures volumes 1-3, Capcom Collections Volumes 1 & 2, Taito Legends 1 & 2 to name a few ;)

    Hey jawad.

    I just wondered if the psp games downloaded from psn will work for ps vita.

    243

    @ taurus82

    Hopefully Psychonauts will receive the HD makeover, as Tim Schafer has had an offer for the $13 million required to develop Psychonauts 2! :)

    244

    Mmmm 20 $ GTA 4 and 25 euro here ? And they still wonder why used games are populair :P

    245

    MASS EFFECT 3!!!
    Finally, I’ll be able to get a taste of that great game!

    Can I ask a question, Jawad?
    Are you Arab? Because your name is.
    And thank you for all the efforts that you do for the PSN community.

    Hi Jawad

    Just wanted to make my suggestions for PS2 classics.

    Indigo Prophecy – I’ve always wanted to play this.

    Persona 4 – No question this game MUST be added!!

    Thanks!

    247

    @jawad I still haven’t had my playstation store updated yet,no far cry or mass effect 3 demo. its just the same stuff from last few weeks, it was yesterday i was meant to get far cry, im not the only one either
    please help thanks

    248

    I bet Jawad’s least favourite day of the week is a Wednesday. It would definitely be mine.

    @Jawad: I bought Vandal Hearts on the cheap a few weeks ago (not played it yet), just want to recommend the original game for a future PSN release. Not really into playing the ol’ Ps1 games, but that was a top strategy game worth playing again.

    Nice one for Far Cry 2 as well.

    Thank you for Far Cry 2.

    But did you notice the massive amount of content Plus-users get in USA this month?

    250

    Price for The House of Dead III is wrong – it says €2599 ;D

    251

    is there any way plus subscribers can buy plus content instead of getting it free on plus. I only ask as I would like to buy Far Cry 2 for the discounted rate as I wont be resubscribing to plus. That means I will lose the game when plus runs out and I would of missed out on the discounted rate? An aswer to this would be good before the discount runs out next week.

    Could someone please tell me how I contact customer services?

    What about the Soul Calibur V costumization pack 2 ?

    is the store update live yet?

    255

    why hasint the ps store updated yet

    It’s near the end of the working day and the store still isn’t updated. Would it be a better system to prepare the update on a Tuesday then push it live on the wed?

    Other services manage to do this really easily :\

    Still not Live :/ I want to go to bed come on :( (In Australia)

    258

    Great update! Lots I want to get my hands on. Is there any news about an EU store release for crono cross?

    FreddyGPaulsen 15 February, 2012 @ 16:26
    259

    Jawad, how come still no Choplifter release ? At their facebookpage they said Feb 15, and that’s today. https://www.facebook.com/choplifter

    259.1

    “Tentative” sadly.

    “If you already own it on PS3 then yes, it will work fine on the Vita as they are crossplay titles.”

    so are the crossplay titles free why do we have to pay twice for the same content.

    i hope FF10 on vita is crossplay too and free so if i buy FF10 remake & i will i expect FF10 vita be a FF10 bundle in the EU store.

    no Ps1 & Ps2 on vita it will need a firmware update for it to happen when i don’t know but it will happen.
