‘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.


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.


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!


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.

    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! πŸ™‚

      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 9:29 am    

      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!! πŸ˜€

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:09 pm   4

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

    ShogunDarius 15 February, 2012 @ 1:09 pm   5

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


    still without Machinarium … πŸ™ 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 πŸ˜›

    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!

      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 2:08 pm    

      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.

    Spartan57 15 February, 2012 @ 1:12 pm   12

    Any word on Dino Crisis 1&2?????? πŸ™‚


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

    EternalChaos72 15 February, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   14

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   15

    Nice to see PS2 Classics finally release within the EU πŸ™‚ 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!

    Playtoy_17 15 February, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   16

    WOW good update

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


    sephiroth180 15 February, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   17

    Bloody huge update! πŸ˜€


    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?



      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 9:30 am    

      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 ?


    SuperJag86 15 February, 2012 @ 1:14 pm   21

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

    Carnivius_Prime 15 February, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   22


    [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.

    KC-alpha-14 15 February, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   23

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

    Guillemots 15 February, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   24

    Woah! 2599€ for the House of Death III! πŸ˜›
    Btw, great update!
    Any news about the launch of the PS Vita store in Europe?
    Cheers! πŸ™‚

    SuGaR_rAy_RiDeR 15 February, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   25

    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.


      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 2:14 pm    

      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.

    KaiserSoza13 15 February, 2012 @ 1:15 pm   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

    La_Mangouste 15 February, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   28

    Can someone tell me thie size of Far Cry 2 ?

    Cpt_Yanni 15 February, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   29

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

    bigburt82 15 February, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   30

    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…

    randellaUK 15 February, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   31

    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?

    ilikethispart 15 February, 2012 @ 1:17 pm   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.

    Bacon_Crispies 15 February, 2012 @ 1:18 pm   35

    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?

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:18 pm   36

    @ Jawad

    Is there going to be a seperate PLUS post as look at what the US receive!


    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

      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 2:48 pm    

      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.

    chrisandsheva 15 February, 2012 @ 1:19 pm   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..


    around 3,5GB

    HiddenAway 15 February, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   41

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


    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

    guitardevil6 15 February, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   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!!



    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.

    chrisredfield_97 15 February, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   45

    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

      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 2:53 pm    

      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.

    Killer_Paul 15 February, 2012 @ 1:20 pm   46

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


    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

    KaiserSoza13 15 February, 2012 @ 1:21 pm   48

    sorry ghostlight, stupid automatic text.

    AsmodeanBT 15 February, 2012 @ 1:21 pm   49

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

    dieselian26 15 February, 2012 @ 1:21 pm   50

    any chance of getting an europe demo of Armored Core V. i hope there will be one πŸ™‚

    Andrefpvs 15 February, 2012 @ 1:21 pm   51

    Thanks, when will the update be live?


    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.

    Tridentmorph 15 February, 2012 @ 1:22 pm   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).



    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

    ifoundmysoul 15 February, 2012 @ 1:22 pm   55

    Is house of the dead move compatable?



    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.



    Freaking awsome update! I love it πŸ˜‰

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:23 pm   58

    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 πŸ˜‰

    LAClennell 15 February, 2012 @ 1:23 pm   59

    i take it that PS2 Classics won’t come with trophies? πŸ™

    Cyberendpunk 15 February, 2012 @ 1:24 pm   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 πŸ˜€

    vonhammer 15 February, 2012 @ 1:24 pm   61

    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.

    SSJVEGETA2007 15 February, 2012 @ 1:24 pm   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!

    DiekStiekem 15 February, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   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 πŸ™‚

    FrostScythe1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:26 pm   69

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

    Opt1mus76 15 February, 2012 @ 1:26 pm   70

    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

    Bealinator 15 February, 2012 @ 1:26 pm   71

    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).

    RemyX-1988 15 February, 2012 @ 1:27 pm   73

    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.

    DenSchmerz 15 February, 2012 @ 1:28 pm   76

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

    Pacman_Ownage 15 February, 2012 @ 1:28 pm   77

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

    …Looks like it’s already started >________>

    Maxdamage999 15 February, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   78

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

    FallenDiason 15 February, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   79

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

    hollandnigel 15 February, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   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

    kit-tiger 15 February, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   84

    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 !

    killah_fury 15 February, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   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!)

      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 3:08 pm    

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

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:31 pm   86

    @ BigPaja


    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 πŸ˜‰

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

    Kind Regards

    ducky1549 15 February, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   87

    how come were having to pay Β£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?

    MrGarry2u 15 February, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   88

    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.

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:34 pm   91

    @ killah_fury

    SSX Tricky would be fantastic πŸ™‚

    silmorat1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   92


    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

    mattledger 15 February, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   93

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

    Skookie30 15 February, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   94

    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.

    At last PS2 Classics!!!!!

    noruraeus 15 February, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   96

    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 πŸ™‚

    VideoGammerMan 15 February, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   97

    Still no Trine 2… can’t believe it

    colmshan1990 15 February, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   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 @ 1:36 pm   99

    Still no Trine 2, can’t believe it…

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   100

    Please, if someone can help it would be greatly appreciated πŸ˜‰

    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.

    Myst3rialP 15 February, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   102

    Force-Infinity 15 February, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   105

    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.



    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.

    ZenSelai 15 February, 2012 @ 1:42 pm   108

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

    GenocideHeart 15 February, 2012 @ 1:42 pm   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?

    bravo9zero 15 February, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   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.


    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.

    Overlord1304 15 February, 2012 @ 1:46 pm   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.

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:46 pm   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! πŸ˜‰

    @ Hayzink

    So I should browse through my free titles & launch each one to update the date? If so that’s great & thanks! πŸ™‚ 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!

    Skookie30 15 February, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   114

    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.

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   115


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

    chrisandsheva 15 February, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   116

    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? πŸ™ Best game on PS2!

    Monty450 15 February, 2012 @ 1:53 pm   118

    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.

    SuGaR_rAy_RiDeR 15 February, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   120


    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.

    EmoRoxas 15 February, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   121

    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.

    Benjamin81 15 February, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   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.

    Blood_God_UK 15 February, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   123

    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 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.

    Luis_FFgamer 15 February, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   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?

    Monty450 15 February, 2012 @ 2:01 pm   125


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



    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 πŸ˜‰ ) 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.

    btw just incase your not doing this you should make sure you get rid of any install data of any titles your no longer playing as some of them take up lots of space and its a waste if your not using them.

    GenocideHeart 15 February, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   127

    @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…

    brothernumsy 15 February, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   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! πŸ˜€

    Genki-Rocket 15 February, 2012 @ 2:05 pm   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.

    Amy_Belgium 15 February, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   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 πŸ™‚

    Amy_Belgium 15 February, 2012 @ 2:07 pm   132

    also you’re doing a good job keep it up πŸ™‚


    @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.

    Pandadosmares 15 February, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   134

    Still no Choplifter HD, Res Evil 2 and 3?

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

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

    Thanks muchly.

    @ 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!

    RacerBest 15 February, 2012 @ 2:16 pm   141

    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 πŸ™‚ – 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

    supersmith2500 15 February, 2012 @ 2:17 pm   144

    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 @ 2:18 pm   145


    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 … πŸ™ 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… πŸ™


    Nice update is there any news for suikoden for PS1 Classics

    Blood_God_UK 15 February, 2012 @ 2:19 pm   147

    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
    Steambot Chronicles
    Suikoden 3
    Suikoden 4
    Suikoden 5
    Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven
    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

    EmpireNO 15 February, 2012 @ 2:19 pm   150

    Great update, lot’s of good stuff.

    But still no Trine 2…. :/

    chrisandsheva 15 February, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   151

    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 Β£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.

    CHRIZZYYY08 15 February, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   152

    Sony this is wrong!! I pre-orded the system day 1 heck im already paying Β£50 extra for 3G im glad you give us wipeout 2048 for Β£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! πŸ˜€

    Damn good update sir, well done!

    GenocideHeart 15 February, 2012 @ 2:21 pm   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?!



    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 πŸ™

    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 Β£40 py

    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 πŸ™‚

    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…

    ocelot07 15 February, 2012 @ 2:28 pm   164

    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.

    I3loodthirsty 15 February, 2012 @ 2:29 pm   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

    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?



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

    AndyBeans 15 February, 2012 @ 2:34 pm   177

    @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 Β£2 each, it’d be nice to have the same opportunity to fill in the ones we missed.

    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.




    noooooooo, not buying them again then lol

    Mannion1988 15 February, 2012 @ 2:38 pm   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

    DragonGuard666 15 February, 2012 @ 2:39 pm   185

    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.

    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!

    GenocideHeart 15 February, 2012 @ 2:44 pm   190

    @I3loodthirsty (#169):

    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?

    Last week we got Malicious first over the US (they don’t have it or even know if they will get it), this week we got the Dungeon Defenders DLC free and a ton of PS2 classics, as well as Fear Effect 2 (which also isn’t on the US store if memory serves)… and you still complain that you never get content before the US does. What the hell, people?


    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

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 2:44 pm   192

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


    That is a lot of PS2 Classics πŸ˜› 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 –

    Taito Legends 1 + 2

    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.




    hope restored πŸ˜‰



    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 (Β£4.79/€2599)

    And if it’s supposed to be €25,99, it’s still a lot for such an old game…

    I3loodthirsty 15 February, 2012 @ 2:53 pm   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)?

    Jesse-Blue 15 February, 2012 @ 2:55 pm   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. πŸ™‚

    Now we only need Trine 2.


    thanks for the reply on the worms issue jawad

    Carnivius_Prime 15 February, 2012 @ 2:57 pm   204

    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.

    ElWaster 15 February, 2012 @ 2:58 pm   206

    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 πŸ™ ) for those two gems!

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 3:02 pm   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 πŸ™‚

    see reply to 56 πŸ™‚



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



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

    DrNate86 15 February, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   212

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

      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 3:31 pm    

      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.

    aaronrogers2009 15 February, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   213

    Are the ps2 games playable on psp like ps1 games, thanks for all the brill games, plenty to download now x

    Nice to see the Zen Epic Questy-poos table is finally here, we wants it ssso mutch, and the Journey avies aparked my brain into inquiring when are we getting to see the whole Journey game instore then? Oh yes, we wants that ssso ssso mutchly sssue.
    Vita next week munchkins and Oi or I should say We were invited to Sony’s Vita industry event soiree here in Auckland later today for a hands-on…schurp we wants it ALLLL…. ‘ollum!

    chrisandsheva 15 February, 2012 @ 3:13 pm   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 Β£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.


      Jawad Ashraf 15 February, 2012 @ 3:38 pm    

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

    Private-Lu 15 February, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   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.

    Carmanen 15 February, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   219

    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?

    MafiaCub 15 February, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   220

    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 Β£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.

    dandare2309 15 February, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   221

    now bring on ssx tricky

    MafiaCub 15 February, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   222

    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 πŸ™



    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!

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   226

    So we get discounts, but nowhere near as much free content as the US got! πŸ™

    Will we receive further free titles for PLUS members?

    Jawad please can you ask Ross?

    Kind regards

      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 9:37 am    

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

    NUFCRULE 15 February, 2012 @ 3:35 pm   227

    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?


      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 9:38 am    

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

    GaiaScythe 15 February, 2012 @ 3:36 pm   228

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

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

    Scuffy_P 15 February, 2012 @ 3:40 pm   230

    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

    taurus82 15 February, 2012 @ 3:42 pm   232

    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)

    RobertMorridin 15 February, 2012 @ 3:43 pm   233

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


    Thanks for clearing that up Jawad πŸ™‚

    UltraSilver64 15 February, 2012 @ 3:45 pm   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?

    Scuffy_P 15 February, 2012 @ 3:46 pm   237

    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.

    bensdream 15 February, 2012 @ 3:46 pm   238

    Yay, yet more extortion from Sony. I paid Β£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.

    NUFCRULE 15 February, 2012 @ 3:48 pm   239

    Will PS2 Classics work on Vita?

    ROBERTWARNES 15 February, 2012 @ 3:49 pm   240

    Move Street Cricket, not available in Australia.

    I forgot that Cricket is our national sport.

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 3:51 pm   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 πŸ˜‰


    Hey jawad.

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

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 3:56 pm   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! πŸ™‚

    Mmmm 20 $ GTA 4 and 25 euro here ? And they still wonder why used games are populair πŸ˜›

    Q8StormGuardian 15 February, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   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!!


    SCOTCHmfCHIEF 15 February, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   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

    Chr15toff3e 15 February, 2012 @ 4:03 pm   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?

    Drian_Thierf 15 February, 2012 @ 4:06 pm   250

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

    deadsleepx 15 February, 2012 @ 4:11 pm   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?

    kaktuseis 15 February, 2012 @ 4:13 pm   253

    What about the Soul Calibur V costumization pack 2 ?

    steveeire 15 February, 2012 @ 4:16 pm   254

    is the store update live yet?

    SCOTCHmfCHIEF 15 February, 2012 @ 4:22 pm   255

    why hasint the ps store updated yet

    BiosNova 15 February, 2012 @ 4:22 pm   256

    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 :\

    Marky264 15 February, 2012 @ 4:24 pm   257

    BrianDamage7 15 February, 2012 @ 4:25 pm   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 @ 4:26 pm   259

    Jawad, how come still no Choplifter release ? At their facebookpage they said Feb 15, and that’s today.

    Skookie30 15 February, 2012 @ 4:27 pm   260

    “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.

      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 9:59 am    

      Not all titles will follow the same format as Hustle Kings. That’s something that will be discussed per title/publisher most likely.

    twoofclubs 15 February, 2012 @ 4:27 pm   261

    Yay PS2 classics!

    Skookie30 15 February, 2012 @ 4:30 pm   262

    Oh come now you know why it going to be late SCEE going to introduce Ps2 classic onto our EU stores.

    *Does a Big FANFARE*

    HERE THEY COME……………..

    Querdenker 15 February, 2012 @ 4:34 pm   263

    Can we get PS2 US imports, just like the PSOne US imports? If so, I’d love to see:

    – Xenosaga — Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht
    – Xenosaga — Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra

    Because only Episode II got released over here. Of course, someone has to convince Namco Bandai to re-release these games at all first. One can dream…


    Will there be any discount on the ps2 games?(ps+)

    Catkiller1 15 February, 2012 @ 4:37 pm   265

    @ deadsleepx

    Just purchase the seperate file that has the Β£7.99 price tag & bypass the free PLUS download altogether!

    Still not up…

    King_Ubu 15 February, 2012 @ 4:40 pm   267

    We’ve been waiting so long for the PS2 games… and thats the selection?

    That is attrocious. I never paid much attention to all the complaints at Sony Europe, but that selection is beyond poor.

    deadsleepx 15 February, 2012 @ 4:41 pm   268


    Cheers mate will try that out πŸ™‚

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 4:43 pm   269

    Still no sign of the Mass Effect 3 demo here in Australia >.<

    Lord_Gremlin 15 February, 2012 @ 4:43 pm   270

    Hey, where’s Saints Row The Third new DLC, the one US store got? And why no news on Trine 2?

    SCOTCHmfCHIEF 15 February, 2012 @ 4:44 pm   271

    Can you do the decent thing and answer, it was supposed to be yesterday id get far cry 2. Whats going on, Seems most other people have it

    chrisandsheva 15 February, 2012 @ 4:44 pm   272

    firstly what happened to the Q and Answers spot, is it now no more,?.
    also a post above mentions the inability to actually BUY any content that we may allready ‘rent’ from ps plus, i have wanted something doing to change this as well.
    lastly, and probably the reason i won’t get a reply, How can scee justify the abhorent price and content differences between us and US, yes i’m still upset that the US plus got over $80 of bonus content yesterday, why i have no idea, but i sure would love to know, as well as why we never, or aren’t ?, as i’m sure you/someone would of said by now. anyway besides that, it’s a good update, till next week then, bye.

      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 10:06 am    

      The Q&A/FAQ is absent this week. I am aiming to have it back next week if all goes well.

      The difference between US and Europe is, well, different! I will likely answer this in the FAQ next week but the gist of it is we are different territories, different markets, dealing with different legal matters and different currencies. A lot of difference! EU consists of UK, France, Germany and so many more territories. Sure, in an ideal world it’d be one territory but that’s not how it is unfortunately. The same applies to other entertainment mediums itself and various other types of industries. I hope this clears some things up.

      As for the Plus content, Ross informed me certain material MAY be coming up very soon.

    TheAdventurer29 15 February, 2012 @ 4:45 pm   273

    Do psn update every Wednesday!? I am new here.

    jozhster 15 February, 2012 @ 4:55 pm   275

    hello jawad

    have you got any update for us on the refunded difference andy promised us on jurassic park the game since i over paid it a few months ago and andy promised we woud be refunded the dfference can you find out for me?


      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 10:08 am    

      You will need to contact customer services. They have been briefed on this issue and are aware on those entitled for the refund. Australian/New Zealand customers will have their issue resolved separately.

    Darkeeper 15 February, 2012 @ 4:55 pm   276

    Any plans on putting up Odin Sphere and the PS2 Shin Megami Tensei games (the Persona series, Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 and Nocturne) as PS2 Classics?

    Also, is there any word on bringing Final Fantasy Tactics and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night to the European Stores, as PS One Classics?

    @ Jawad

    I just contacted customer services about the Jurassic Park refund and the guy I spoke to knew nothing about it. He said “We don’t do refunds for PS Store games.”

    The number I found online was 0844 736 0595. I hope that was the right number.

    Please help! I’ve never had any trouble with the PS Store before and this experience is putting me off buying anything from there again.

    FreddyGPaulsen 15 February, 2012 @ 5:02 pm   278

    To TheAdventurer29, yes
    To T_A_Z200, I think its release is about Feb 22…

    HareOfDoom 15 February, 2012 @ 5:05 pm   279

    hi, although im over the moon that finally GTA4 comes to the PSN, why is it that the Americans can get its for $20 and we have to pay Β£20 ..there is such a thing called an exchange rate, and as its just pure data that is being sold here, there are no ‘overheads’ to speak of.

    can anyone explain this please?

    thanks πŸ™‚


    SCEE is pretty much hopeless. I know this is a heads-up, but why force people to ask the question – WHEN? Why not give an ETA, etc. It’s really annoying. I’m in no rush to get Worms… it’s just the principle.

    /gets off high horse.


    Any chance there will ever be a fix for the XMB icon of Populous: The Begining?
    It is the icon surrounded by a big white box, looks terrible on the XMB.

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 5:09 pm   285

    Bah eel there is a post over on the boards about it

    FreddyGPaulsen 15 February, 2012 @ 5:11 pm   286

    To Wutage,it was stated in a FAQ a couple of weeks ago that Trine 2 and Choplifter was due sometime in February…

    FrozenbyteGames 15 February, 2012 @ 5:11 pm   287

    Trine 2 status update – it’s in QA (since last week or so). So nothing new to announce, we’re keeping our fingers crossed…

    – Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine 2

    Stonesthrow 15 February, 2012 @ 5:12 pm   288

    Weren’t the PS2 classics supposed to be compatible with Vita? That’s what I read a while back : PS1 classics playable on PSP, PS2 classics would be playable on PSV.. Huge letdown if not..

    Maximo was pretty good, just the ME3 demo for me though.


    @ FrozenbyteGames – Thanks for posting here, and unlucky about the delay. Can’t wait to play it… love Trine!

    Shifty_Geezer 15 February, 2012 @ 5:15 pm   290

    Hi Jawad, the PS2 games are awesome. Is there any news on how games are getting added? A chance to replay Baldur’s Gate Dark Alliance, and the other Snowblind games would be awesome – I’ve even considered buying an old PS2 to play them.

    Some of the content is on the store now just search for what you want I know worms is out now because i downloaded and was the first to rate it !:)


    if you want the stuff from the update just use the search function and it shows up πŸ˜‰

    Good idea, tried it but no ME3 as yet…

    Why can’t they standardise the time it’s updated, it’s not very professional


    btw just a heads up the complete gta blu ray is 14.99 at if people want it

    apasthist 15 February, 2012 @ 5:26 pm   298

    bakayoyo 15 February, 2012 @ 5:30 pm   300

    worms, gta iv and house of the dead are in the plus discount section. downloading worms now.


    Far Cry 2 = 3939 MB
    …If anyone was interested.


    Nice to see questions regarding Trine 2 are being dutifully ignored. 2 months now and still no release… Frozenbyte must be livid with you guys – you’ve probably cost them a lot of money with your completely inconsistent QA standards.

    I wish someone could explain how exactly the same game could fail QA in the EU but pass in the US. But I suspect pigs will fly before that happens.

    The fact that it’s still not out and we’re half way through February honestly makes me start to think that it could have failed AGAIN! I mean really, Sony? *sigh*

    Andrew_S_83 15 February, 2012 @ 5:34 pm   303

    I think they’re taking the p*ss now…

    Come on, look at the time!! Still no demo…

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 5:38 pm   304

    Yea I agree mate its a bit bloody stupid we still have sign of the ME3 demo, typical day at Sony I guess…

    supersmith2500 15 February, 2012 @ 5:38 pm   305

    To all people who asking when the store will be updated please have patience, you do know Jawad said the store WILL be updated later than usual? Stop being hasty and do what you normally do for like an hour or so.

    Also too BigPaja, I love what you put down on there, send this entire list to SCEE. You know, Square Enix is the only game company that releases PSone games. I have a feeling that our PS2 classics might suck just like PSone Classics. πŸ™

    JustMe_27 15 February, 2012 @ 5:39 pm   306

    Sorry If this has been answered already does anyone know when the vita store will be up and running?

    lancetman 15 February, 2012 @ 5:45 pm   307

    Hi, sounds like a great bunch of stuff. I just wish I could access it. It’s not updated on my PS3 (in the UK by the way) and the update time is usually 4:00pm ish and it’s now 5:45pm. Any Ideas?

    JolipinatorJG 15 February, 2012 @ 5:46 pm   308

    If you consider those “PS2 classics” then I’m getting an Xbox.

    SSX On Tour!!!! Best ps2 game ever, glad there bringing it back to buy on ps3. You have to get it πŸ™‚

    Gazz6666 15 February, 2012 @ 5:49 pm   310

    Nice to see that Namco are being consistent with their overpricing of the Ace Combat DLC. Good job there.

    Toy Story 3 (Was Β£7.99/€ 9.99 – Now Β£3.99/€ 4.99)

    In the sore… it is € 29.99 …. not €4.99 and it never was €9.99 ….

    The price will be updated ? Or is just a typing mistake of yours ?

    KungFuPigeon 15 February, 2012 @ 5:56 pm   312

    When you but something like:-

    Worms Ultimate Mayhem (Β£9.99/€12.99)*10% Discount for PS Plus Members*

    Can you put the discounted price as well please.

    FrozenbyteGames 15 February, 2012 @ 5:58 pm   313

    @302 sazzrah
    Trine 2 status updates have been posted in most of the Store Update threads for a few weeks now (by me and some by the Store team too). And while I cannot go into details regarding the overall delay (which sucks, obviously), we try to provide as much information as we can. Right now the game is in QA for another round, and it takes 2-3 weeks for one QA round typically. We expect to have some new info next week – hopefully it’s the good kind, i.e. pass, and then soon a release… Fingers crossed!

    – Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine 2

    xXrhin0saurXx 15 February, 2012 @ 6:03 pm   314

    Afew things have been put on the store .Ijust bought the GTA IV BUNDLE, also PSPlus has FARCRY 2 offer atm for those interested.

    wanderly7 15 February, 2012 @ 6:04 pm   315

    Hey um the store hasn’t been updated yet for IE users it still shows the previous update titles btw not dissing Sony just curious :/

    DylaNolife 15 February, 2012 @ 6:05 pm   316

    PSPlus has FARCRY 2 and the same offers we can see on the US Store without PSN Games…

    Omegabug2003 15 February, 2012 @ 6:05 pm   317

    Any reason for the delay?

    You’ve had ample time to get things ready.
    What with the downloads always being so slow, we’ll be lucky to play the demo today.

    Basket21 15 February, 2012 @ 6:08 pm   318

    Right now the game is in QA for another round, and it takes 2-3 weeks for one QA round typically. <– being a bit optimistic there mr Joel

    But thanks for doin all the weekly updates on this blog.

    And if the good news next week is that it passed, i better be downloading it the same week and not the week after. They kept us waiting long enough.

    Maybe its time for an american PSN account ;x … ill read up on that.

    Have a nice week !

    Omegabug2003 15 February, 2012 @ 6:09 pm   319

    Oh, silly me. Posting on Page 7 when they (the staff) never look beyond Page 3.

    LightningSamus 15 February, 2012 @ 6:13 pm   320

    Hurry up, i want to play ME3 Demo, my american friends have been playing it all day.

    Andrew_S_83 15 February, 2012 @ 6:13 pm   321

    This is now a joke…

    Connor_mufc_1985 15 February, 2012 @ 6:14 pm   322

    Yet another monumental screw up by SCEE/$ONY I see … you know what if you dont give a crap about ps3 anymore why not just release the ps4

    angusinthearoara 15 February, 2012 @ 6:15 pm   323

    I’v been excited about the PS2 games launch on the store & glad we are getting a dungeon defenders add on. Is there any chance plus subscribers can get the exclusive pets offered in US for DF? The plus content is very poor here im getting frustrated as a paying customer. Please think!

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 6:16 pm   324

    Yea tell me bout it most of my American mates are like “come play the Mass Effect demo, and I’m like I can’t due to the store not having it yet”

    Andrew_S_83 15 February, 2012 @ 6:17 pm   325
    Omegabug2003 15 February, 2012 @ 6:19 pm   326

    Why update so late in the afternoon anyway? Why not in the morning/early afternoon like the others?

    Oh well πŸ™

    BlindMonkey 15 February, 2012 @ 6:19 pm   327

    Come on already!!!! I want to give you my money

    You forced me into downloaded Mass Effect 3 from the American Store

    RawNinjaKid 15 February, 2012 @ 6:20 pm   328

    Any chance PsOne/Ps2 Memory Card data can be backed up to the cloud for PS + members? It really should be an option!

    PS 2 Classics are okay, although I prefer a full HD remaster where possible.

    I am still hoping Capcom will remaster Killer 7 in HD. It’s worth remembering that the previous PS2 version was inferior to the original Gamecube release.

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 6:21 pm   329

    Its 5:30 A.M here in Australia and still no bloody demo :/

    BlindMonkey 15 February, 2012 @ 6:23 pm   330

    They’re uploading a lot, and I mean a LOT

    Maybe they’ve exceeded their bandwidth lol

    Just imagine if they’d put all the Vita games on their list too :p

    MiniSmash123 15 February, 2012 @ 6:25 pm   331

    Should the store updated around 6ish cause I am WAITING TO THE MASS EFFECT 3 DEMO !!!!!!!!!!!1

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 6:25 pm   332

    Still it gets frustrating when were the only region where our store is so terrible when it comes to stuff like this :/ It makes me feel like I’m headbutting a brick wall at times

    Omegabug2003 15 February, 2012 @ 6:28 pm   333


    No excuse, they should been prepared.
    It’s not good business practice to keep customers waiting.

    Scuffy_P 15 February, 2012 @ 6:30 pm   334

    One has to wonder about Sony’s dubious ethics. Trine 2 failed QA over some trivial localisation issue that could simple have been patched, yet Skyrim…and unbelievably broken game passed QA without any problems.

    No wonder SCEE is used as a swear word these days. “Oh no, look at that…I’ve stepped in SCEE, it’s all over my shoe!”.

    The free for Plus Far Cry 2 is up, just use search.

    downloading… 153 minutes left

    bluescopian4 15 February, 2012 @ 6:35 pm   336

    In the business of employing snails these days are we SCEE? Get a move on please!

    I go to work at 10 and I’d like to at least start to download my stuff by then.

    Keitaro004 15 February, 2012 @ 6:36 pm   337

    I will start to rage if I don’t get my Worms or Donald Duck PS2 classic soon. It’s always updated between 6-7 AM, so why so late today? FUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    Okay, maybe there won’t be an update at all for some of us. Below ‘Heads-up’ there’s a line which says: ” Countries: AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ” .

    Does it mean only those countries will get THIS update O_O


    ok, what’s wrong with today’s update then?

    you’re delaying it so whoever’s job it is to fix it has already gone so they don’t have to work late right?

    why bother, you’d only take weeks fixing it anyway.

    spatsnaz 15 February, 2012 @ 6:41 pm   340

    Looks like SCEE brought their A game this week. Best update in months!

    InHumanTurtle 15 February, 2012 @ 6:41 pm   341

    For future PS2 titles I would highly suggest all 3 Ace Combat games, they’ll be popular considering the success of Assault Horizon.

    Hoping to get the ME3 demo soon!


    maybe reema, but not yet.

    Falcon1991 15 February, 2012 @ 6:44 pm   343

    Such damn incompetence, why not just prepare the update earlier. Gah.

    appa-king 15 February, 2012 @ 6:44 pm   344

    Been waiting for update since i came from school, so something about six hours for now. It always updates 17-19 o’clock (GMT+2) whats taking so long?! ME WANTS PLAY MASS EFFECT 3. NOW. PLEASE.

    LuciusLawliet 15 February, 2012 @ 6:47 pm   345

    Yeah, because it’s not like the update is 2 and 3/4 hours late or anything. Come on Sony, pick up your game. Your download speeds are already bad enough as it is, and some of us would like to queue up stuff like Mass Effect and Binary Domain. Because, y’know, anyone with a PC or an Xbox has already had the ME3 demo for over 36 hours.


    so where is the update???? Not on my ps3 yet!!!!!

    iJamiee- 15 February, 2012 @ 6:49 pm   347

    just be patient the content is out but you have to search for it


    Oh my Lord. You know, in a way it’s quite impressive. Every time I think I’ve seen the limit of how utterly incompetent SCEE can be, they manage to just go that little bit further.

    Biggest demo launch so far this year, and quite possibly at all this year. Goes fine on XBox and PC. Goes fine on PS3 in other regions. SCEE? Well, you blew it. AGAIN.

    Remind me, exactly what are you doing for me as a customer to make me accept your wish for me to not just make a US account?

    ducky1549 15 February, 2012 @ 6:53 pm   349

    For peep’s waiting on mass effect 3 demo and binary domain demo just make a us account takes 5 mins tops and they are already up on their site.

    LightningSamus 15 February, 2012 @ 6:53 pm   350

    SCEE is a joke, they haven’t done anything good this gen, all they do is P people off.

    Do they not care about customers, Microsoft’s european team always puts Sony’s european team to shame.

    bluescopian4 15 February, 2012 @ 6:55 pm   351

    Microsoft got the ME3 demo yesterday ON TIME, SCEA got the demo yesterday, but we get expensive conversion rates, reduced content and we get to wait for the privilege of this.

    Utterly incompetent.

    Arqus_Zed 15 February, 2012 @ 6:56 pm   352



    God Hand?!!

    Both the Maximo games?!!!

    YES! So much YES!

    JediKnight246 15 February, 2012 @ 7:10 pm   359

    That’s probably the longest Sony has ever taken to update the Store, i guess they know that their servers are going to implode because of all of the people trying to download the Mass Effect 3 demo at the same time. πŸ™‚

    T_A_Z200 15 February, 2012 @ 7:13 pm   360

    Took them long enough, finally downloading ME3 Demo

    Thank you !!!

    TheDaftTool 15 February, 2012 @ 7:17 pm   363

    I understand the people that are saying to make a US account if we are unhappy and yes it makes alot of sense. However, why should we have to? Why should we have to make a US account just to get the service we should be getting anyway.
    If you went out shopping and the store assistant was extremley pleasant and helpful to the customer in front of you you would expect the same service. If that assistant acted like you had just clubbed a baby seal to death with another baby seal, was rude and not helpful you would go to a different shop in future.
    All we want is to be treated the same. The same service, the same respect.


    at 7pm the store finaly updates.
    bravo, scee outdoing themselves once again.

    and still that bloody range background that means you can barely read the text.

    why not just stick a sign on the front page that says “we hate you all”
    scrap all this pretense that the customer actually matters to scee.

    not that anybody buys that pretense anyway.
    that ship sailed a looooooooooooooong time ago.

    supersmith2500 15 February, 2012 @ 7:47 pm   368

    … Yep, just what Smith knew. Most of them are from Midas Interactive and Disney. But hey, doesn’t matter since I’ve got a nice collection worth playing on my good ol’ PS2.

    I bet there will be people asking for GTAIII and such so yeah get ready to hear some complaints Sony because your users will end up saying ”can you put ridge racer V on there and San Andreas” and such more. To me I find some of Midas’ games boring, I own some of them and some are just mediocre and some are okish while some are just rubbish.

    Ok now let’s talk about the newest addiction of all, The PS2 Classics. To me I find the PS2 Classics a little disappointing since most games are released from Midas, SYSTEM 3 and Disney. Also the introduction PS2 Classics could of been really better if Sony’s gaming studios releases their games too such as WipEout Fusion and The Getaway, SEGA to release their Sonic titles and of course NAMCO BANDAI (Yes Namco, I’m talking about ya!) to release Tekken 4 for PS2 Classics.


    supersmith2500 15 February, 2012 @ 7:53 pm   369


    Overall, lil’ dissapointed with the PS2 lineup but you’ll never know there might be some decent PS2 games coming out. So yeah I don’t really care about PS2 Classics but I’ll just stick to my PS2 instead for PS2 classics. Smith’s opinion. Now go and enjoy your new content. Let’s hope Sony releases their own games later on.

    PS: I really hope Blast! Entertainment doesn’t ruin the PS2 classics. Even though I don’t think they since Blast!’s games are movie based games and Sony will need to get permission from the movie companies to release them since Blast! had the rights to release movie based games.

    supersmith2500 15 February, 2012 @ 7:54 pm   370

    Also I think I know why the reason it took SCEE so long to update the Store. PS2 Games.

    Gamesgbkiller 15 February, 2012 @ 7:57 pm   371

    why no jak & daxter collection ??

    crusher915 15 February, 2012 @ 8:01 pm   372

    Can you guys bring all of the PS2 Crash Bandicoot games to the store

    Good start to the PS2 games, would love to see SSX Tricky and the earlier Armored Core games (2: Another Age & 3) in the future πŸ˜‰

    Unwinged-Angel 15 February, 2012 @ 8:19 pm   374

    Hey Jawad! Hows it goin?
    Got a problem I hope you could sort out.
    When i’m loading Malicious, seems all goes well, get through the the Loading Trophy Screen and such.. And then the screen goes black.
    I get this Error Message: An error has occurred. (8002E500)
    And then it goes on to say: You have not agreed to the End-User license Agreement.
    You cannot play online.
    I believe thats what it says, that last part only stays on the screen for 2 seconds.
    You may have answered this already.. But you only have 14 replys right now, and theirs 8 pages, y’know what i’m sayin’? lol.

    PeppermintShore 15 February, 2012 @ 8:23 pm   375

    OK PSN i’m really not impressed. North America has had access to PS Vita downloadable games now for a week while the EU sees zip. This is another slap to our faces as North America is getting 32gb cards and the EU are not. Why are you focusing all you efforts on the rest of the world and leaving us last and giving us the smelly end of the stick.

    The reason that this has really annoyed me is that North America PSN store is updated on the tuesday and the EU is on the Wednesday. This means that as i am only buying download games first i will be spending my first day owning a PS Vita downloading the games on to my PS3 and then installing them on the my 16gb card (since i couldn’t buy the 32gb card) whith is completely unfair on the EU. So is the PSN store in the EU going to be updated on the 21st or are you going to leave the EU playstation games out in the cold again downloading are content while staring at a unusable PS Vita. Great start people!!!

    bandoors_ksa 15 February, 2012 @ 8:24 pm   376

    is there going to be a new PS+ subscribe offer in the future? i only got 90 days now

    How about a fix for us with the original disc and a launch PS3?

    The retail version was released over here & was rated pg (i own it)
    though it is a pegi rated one with a pg sticker on it.

    Nice update. Any chance of seeing some imported PS2 classics in the future? It would be great to finally get the chance to play Front Mission 4! Cheers

    NINTENDIALGA 15 February, 2012 @ 9:38 pm   381

    If there’s one PS Classics Series you can try to bring back. It would be Klonoa by Namco, and with the ability to upload PS2 Games to PSN, Now would have to be the time.

    wwechelseafan 15 February, 2012 @ 9:40 pm   382

    I think 7.99 for PS2 classics, is too much. I think 3.99 is more respectable.
    And i hope to see some PS2 superhero games. And Disney Cars 1.

    OllieRaiden 16 February, 2012 @ 2:06 am   390

    Chances are, with Resi 6 coming out later this year they’ll wait till then to release them on the EU store for tying in with the release. It really sucks, but that is kinda the best time for them to do so.

    Good to see the PS stuff, but seriously, the 2nd hand value for most of these is Β£2-Β£3 max, why the hell are they like Β£7.99? Answer cos Sony know they can get away with it.


    Its nuts you can find emulators for a std home PC to run your legit PS2 disks but Sony are still stiffing us on the PS3. With the early PS3’s a lot were only software emulation anyway.


    Omegastoopreme 16 February, 2012 @ 8:07 am   396


    Omegastoopreme 16 February, 2012 @ 8:09 am   397

    I’m actually surprised Sony actually made a reply to a comment on page 5, thats a first they usually stop reading after page 1 as they have no reasonable answers.

    bitbydeath 16 February, 2012 @ 8:50 am   398

    Far Cry 2 has an expiry date on it, anyone else getting this problem?
    I did download the full game trial months ago but never played it.


    Will there be any free PS2 games coming for Plus members? A monthly PS2 game would be really, really nice. Maybe in exchange for a monthly PS1 game?

    Killah_B_SCS 16 February, 2012 @ 9:16 am   400

    LiquidR1987 16 February, 2012 @ 9:31 am   402

    Why is it that we can now download PS2 games? Not that I’m complaining but I still got original games that I can’t play on my PS3. Luckily I still got my PS2, but that’s not the point.

    When will there be a possibility to play PS2 game disc on the PS3 systems that haven’t got that ability.


    jawad idd add your comment about the vita update as an faq to the bottom of the post.

    This is the first time that I have to say, it’s annoyed me to be a PLUS subscriber! Look at all the content the US received! Surely we’re going to receive some more free content, before next months refresh? If not, then why are the EU treated so differently to the US? I understand with regards to game releases etc, but a PLUS subscription should still enable us to receive the same amount of content. Maybe not the exact titles but the same value at the very least πŸ™



    jawad responded to your comment a few pages back and has said we should be getting more content its just a bit more spread out so hopefully not to bad by the end of the month

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:00 am   406

    @ Hayzink

    Oh right! Woops, I just asked James the same thing within the Update post πŸ™

    My bad πŸ˜‰


    i was just about to re-post this on there your question and answer πŸ˜‰

    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

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

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:03 am   408

    @ Hayzink

    I have just read Jawads response & note the key word “may”. May be coming could also mean not! πŸ™

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:03 am   409

    It’s not a definite!


    there should be some kind of notification system on here that shows if you have had a reply to a blog post kind of like they have on kotaku it would help people to know if there questions have been answered because it does not take long for the blog to be swamped with pages


    the point about it being a bit staggered is a bit strange if its not happening.


    can i ask why we don’t get the Costume DLC for FF XIII-2?????

    US store got i last week

      Jawad Ashraf 16 February, 2012 @ 2:35 pm    

      FFXIII-2 had pre-order only DLC which consisted of a costume for Noel, Serah and the coliseum battle Omega. I haven’t heard of a separate release outside of pre-orders.

      There will be new costumes to purchase eventually though. Potentially quite soon.

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:09 am   413

    Staggered could mean extra content next month πŸ™

    I agree with your notification idea so we don’t have to scroll through all of the posts just to find an answer!

    CAPCOM UNITY website has that structure. where you will receive a message when someone has responded!

    Sorry for moaning Hayzink i’m just a tad bit annoyed. I know that PLUS is still good value, especially for CLOUD Saves, but why should we be treated differently to a paying subscription?

    I have plenty of games to keep me occupied, but that’s besides the point!

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:19 am   414

    @ Jawad

    as Jetpac71 asked in one of his/hers post, is there any chance that we will see imported PS2 titles anytime soon? It would be great if this would happen as there were some Twisted Metal & Kingdom Hearts releases that never made it to EU. The Megaman Anniversary Collection & Megaman X Collections would be fantastic & the icing on the cake πŸ˜‰



    no need to be sorry for having a bit of a moan about the situation you pay for the product and are entitled to say what you wish and your not some one who constantly moan.

    i just had a little more faith in the comment at first and still kinda hope the emphasis on the word may from jawad is just to cover his back incase it does not happen and lots of comments start flying his way next week if this does not happen.

    tbh im expecting a s storm in a few weeks on here if what i want to happen with plus happens and that is include vita content, for people like me getting one it will be fantastic but for folks like yourself that have no interest in vita i can see this being pretty annoying.

    but vent away buddy like i say your a paying customer so are entitled to answers if somethings bothering you, i think i just dont care as much anymore as a day one plus user i have had many months where i have been upset at what the usa get but i have just decided to roll with it because even with the differences I still feel I get good value, but just because i feel that way i dont for one min expect everyone to feel the same (plus i have half the games the usa are getting anyway :D)

    Any chance we could get the AUD prices listed? It’s bad enough that we just get lumped with all of Europe just because of the old skool PAL nonsense, don’t forget about us down here!

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:29 am   417

    @ Hayzink


    I apologised as I don’t normally moan. I have defended myself on here numerous times, but that’s different!

    VITA content would be great & I can see it happening. 1 PS2 title per month would be great too πŸ˜‰

    Like I stated before, I understand with regards to game releases, as the EU has different languages & rules & regulations to deal with & that’s why we have to simply wait for titles such as some of the great rare PS1 titles. I was impatient & created a US account just to own some of the rarer titles that never made it to the EU, or are very expensive on Ebay!

    Speak to you soon buddy πŸ™‚



    1+ id rather have a ps2 classic in an update than a ps1 that be nice.

    i guess we will at some point but who know when.

    you say vita content would be great does that mean the tide is turning with your views on getting a vita? hope so it be good to have a few friends with a vita for multi player stuff


    with regards to vita stuff on plus id even be happy if it was a vita compatible psp game we get free on plus as that would also be of use to plus users that have psp πŸ™‚

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 10:57 am   420

    @ Hayzink

    I would pick up a VITA in roughly 2 years time, but i’m open minded & think it would be great for VITA content for PLUS members. Just because I don’t own one or think it’s overpriced, doesn’t mean that VITA owners should miss out!

    I can see why gamers want one, but it’s just not for me!



    good way to look at things πŸ™‚

    paudiperfect 16 February, 2012 @ 11:51 am   422

    when will the prices be annonced for the ps vita stuff on the store as i need to no

    Catkiller1 16 February, 2012 @ 12:02 pm   423

    @ Hayzink

    Found this earlier:

    πŸ™ Hopefully it just means that SONY released the information too early & were asked to remove it!


    Can you please put assassin’s creed bloodlines in the Power sale




    Just wanted to say, really frustrated by the lack of available PS Vita content through my UK account. The US store has been active for over a week now while EU can not download content prior to the offical release of the system. I’m assuming the US version was made live to generally coincide with their “Pre-Order Bundle” which was available as of the 15h of Feb, however, we don’t obtain the same flexibilty. No Vita content on UK store via PS3 following this weeks update, No Vita store available whatsoever for our region on my PS Vita (obtained in Japan at start of year). Surely content will be available prior to the 22nd? if not will we be looking at slow download speeds on digital content on release day if all vita users active on day one? many thanks for for swift response in advance.

    JustMe_27 16 February, 2012 @ 12:45 pm   426

    is The vita store online today in the uk?

    hugh1111 16 February, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   427

    JustMe_27, As of this morning no. Checked on my PS3 following this weeks update and couldn’t find any Vita content. Checked my PS Vita as well and the store isn’t up yet for our region. See my last post for further details and my rank regarding this. Hope this helps.

    hugh1111 16 February, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   428

    Apologies for above spelling should be “RANT” not “RANK”!

    FIRESTAR15 16 February, 2012 @ 2:47 pm   429

    re-release KINGDOM HEARTS RE:CHAIN OF MEMORIES as a ps2 clasic

    ..can someone please smack the guy who pick the “classics” titles over the face for me? Hard.

    Seriously, you have.. so many titles, even titles that Sony published and developed, that sell about 1 single disc on e-bay every year right now, that are more impressive than the list you have here.

    JustMe_27 16 February, 2012 @ 3:36 pm   431

    hugh1111 its almost like sony doesnt want our hard earn cash any other company would rip my arm off.. i agree with you it is fustrating with no information available on when the vita store will go live here in the uk i can i only hope sony release some info soon.

    hugh1111 16 February, 2012 @ 4:29 pm   432


    Agreed, fingers crossed we hear something soon. why oh why release digital content (already available in other regions for over a week now) at midnight of UK release date. Drop the content onto the PSN store now, download via PS3 ready to use when brand new Vita arrives home. No waiting around – simple. Whats the problem? have retailers requested that Sony doesn’t put the digital content online prior to it being available on their selves therefore missing out on possible sales?!? An update/guidance would be gratefully appreciated Sony…. (looks like i’m ranting again!)

    SamChrisMiller 16 February, 2012 @ 5:53 pm   433

    When are they gonna reduce the price of Rayman Origins? I’m not paying Β£40 for a game that’s several months old.

    Judge_Cartman 16 February, 2012 @ 6:27 pm   434

    Saw the PS2 classics (classics?!?! really?!?!?!) and can’t see any info on whether we now have a software PS2 emulator from a previous firmware update?!?!

    If we can D/L & play PS2 games, does that mean we can play disc based PS2 titles too?!?!?!

    marcocatena 16 February, 2012 @ 7:05 pm   435

    Awesome PS2 Classics! I would really like to see 007: Nightfire up on there soon, it’s not the best FPS in the world but the multiplayer was fun with friends. Also Time Splitters 1, 2 & 3. πŸ™‚

    mestreTiago 16 February, 2012 @ 7:14 pm   436

    Nice but now, you cold relase an app to play my 87 ps2 game in the shelf gaining dust,when i saw the ps3 on Tv it says that cold do everything

    turbogeek421 16 February, 2012 @ 8:41 pm   437

    Bump on #403’s point, Far Cry 2 appears as a free trial. Anyone shed any light on it?

    FallenDiason 17 February, 2012 @ 1:04 am   438

    Any chance for Drakengard I and Drakengard II in nearest future?

    randellaUK 17 February, 2012 @ 1:09 am   439

    Β£5 pre order for vita I got a email tore put in the code I already did once in November I didn’t think I would need to redeem again I paid Β£25 to pre order will I still get my discount?


    @Jawad Hey man, I’m unable to purchase Tron Evolution PSP. It continually says

    An error has occurred.

    Tried PSP Store, PS3 Store and MediaGo. All the same.

    I was so over the moon when i saw PS2 game “Road Trip Adventure” released in the store. It’s a game I loved on PS2. Downloaded and started playing and it’s in B&W. Only one other game had done this “God Of War 3”. Any idea why ? or if it can be changed to color?

    Catkiller1 17 February, 2012 @ 9:26 am   442

    20 PS3 titles are on offer today at

    Hopefully it will be useful to some of you, as Warhammer is included πŸ˜‰

    @ marcocatena

    DITTO with regards to Timesplitters, although I would prefer the collection released in disc format, in HD etc!

    @ bitbydeath & turbogeek421

    If you still have the Trial file, then you need to delete it from your system & download the free full version! If that’s not the case, then check your DATA Utility folder & delete the file that should be there! Hope this helps you both πŸ™‚

    Catkiller1 17 February, 2012 @ 9:46 am   443

    @ bitbydeath & turbogeek421

    Also forgot to add; check within your Account Management under Services & check to see if Far Cry 2 is displaying as a service, within your list!

    If you have a save file for the Trial delete that too! What you’re trying to do is delete all existence of the Trial, then download the PLUS freebie file instead, but remember to check your DATA Utility folder and delete anything Far Cry 2 related!

    If you still have problems contact 0844 736 0595, as they’re aware of the situation & will unlock it for you!

    The thing that annoys me, is Save files from disc versions not working with digital versions! I have a Save file for Far Cry 2 when I owned it on disc back in 2008 & the digital version doesn’t recognise it, which is the same thing what happened with Infamous, LittleBigPlanet & Burnout Paradise! Not exactly user friendly!

    RatchetBoy10 17 February, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   444

    Get Ratchet and Clank 3 on the ps2 classics please! I will and others would buy it. Also I have an 80GB PS3 will I be able to play the classics? Still either way put r and c on the store. πŸ˜›

    BlindMonkey 17 February, 2012 @ 2:43 pm   445

    My Far Cry 2 is also showing as a free Trial.
    I did download the free trial a while ago thinking it was the full game, noticed the yellow bar and deleted it.
    Not once did I ever play it.
    Downloaded the Full Free game last night but it had the red “bought” icon on it, and it’s the free trial again.
    There’s nothing in my game data, nothing in my game saves and nothing in my service list.
    I tried the trial to see if it would unlock the full game by doing so but it’s still the trial now with 55 mins left.
    Deleted save game it created and still nothing in the game data or service list.
    This is BS

    MS-StrikeFreedom 17 February, 2012 @ 5:58 pm   446

    Am I missing something? Since when can we play PS2 games on PS3 if that feature was removed!? Confused πŸ™

    ARGJEN88BZ 17 February, 2012 @ 7:18 pm   447

    sorry when Can’t put a Mini Mix to my psp a purchased more for a psp and is impossible to purchased more


    The PS2 games are obviously running on a PS2 emulator. Why don’t you you make it so we can use PS2 discs again? I have the disc version of God Hand that I’d like to use on my PS3. I don’t think I should have to buy it again. I don’t think anyone should buy these PS2 Classics. There’s no reason why the PS3 couldn’t play PS2 game discs, other than Sony wanting to milk us for more money.

    ManicMitch1 18 February, 2012 @ 11:13 am   449

    Farcry 2 expiry. Mine was showing as a trail still I loaded it up then quit and it showed as having 58 minutes left. When I checked about 2 hours later it said expired , loaded it up anyway and it worked, quit back out and the expiry was showing as my ps+ expiry sorted. Hope that helps.

    BlindMonkey 18 February, 2012 @ 11:36 am   450

    Thanks ManicMitch1, i’ll try that.
    I deleted it though so this’ll be the 3rd time i download it πŸ™

    ManicMitch1 19 February, 2012 @ 2:33 pm   451

    No worries BlindMonkey hope that works
