‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 7th March 2012

It is time!

Trine 2

Trine 2 is finally here. After a long wait I’m happy to say the game many of you have been waiting for is finally coming to the PlayStation Store today. If you hadn’t seen Ross’ previous Plus post then you won’t know the current offer we’re going with as an apology for the delay. I quote the good man himself:

Trine 2 is coming this Wednesday with a 30% launch discount for the first two weeks by way of apology for the delay in SCEE. Even better though, if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, it comes with a cool 100% discount, making Trine 2 our PlayStation Plus Game of the Month.

So that’s the big deal for today.

We also have Mass Effect 3 coming to the store this Friday, 9th March to coincide with the retail release. 

Tee-off with the most comprehensive swing mechanic revamp in over a decade and connect with your personal swing via Playstation Move in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13! The demo also introduces several more ground-breaking features such as Online Country Clubs, Coins, Pin Collections, Tiger Legacy Challenge mode and more. Also, return to Augusta National Golf Club to compete against the world’s best players at the Masters Tournament. Download now and earn XP that transfers to the full game to get one step closer to becoming Masters Champion

Don’t forget to also check out this week’s special offers brought to you by Andy the folks at THQ. Look out for titles such as Red Faction: Battlegrounds and Saints Row 2.

For the Vita be sure to check out the upcoming post on that.

For now, stay safe.

when can we expect to see tomba 1/2 on the ps1 classics list
and can we have a sale on SCE psp games, i wanna play syphon filter darkmirror/ logans shadow on my vita again :D

no Street Fighter x Tekken avatars? :(

3

Any news on the Monster Hunter Avatars the US got last week?

Many thanks.

This is great, but where’s more Vita content? i was hoping for some more demos to try, especially Ninja Gaiden by any chance.
Any word on PSOne Classics to Vita as well? Or should i wait for Friday…

Where’s journey? was hoping to see the price for it

Hoping it’s 9.99 as i have exactly £10 in my account lol

Jawad is there any sort of date for I am alive?

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:31
5.1

Journey will be for Plus only. I haven’t mentioned it because Ross had mentioned it in his own special post.

6

No mention of Journey – thought that was available for PS Plus subs today?

Hell-Raiser-85 07 March, 2012 @ 13:50
7

Whats the size of Journey?

UltraSilver64 07 March, 2012 @ 13:51
8

Will other games by Telltale Games be available on the PlayStation Store?

Will the following be made available:

The Bone Series (Out of Boneville & The Great Cow Race)
Sam & Max Save the World (i.e. Season 1)
Hector: Badge of Carnage (especially this one!)
Law & Order: Legacies

If you could let me know as soon as you can, it would be greatly appreciated.

9

Your homefront pricing is the wrong way round!

Also isn’t Journey available today for PS+?

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:32
9.1

Oops! Well spotted.

Journey is available for Plus users this week, yes.

SSX Avatars???

ShogunDarius 07 March, 2012 @ 13:53

Cladun sale? seriously will this ever happen?

spikemad2005 07 March, 2012 @ 13:54
12

Tombi?

So are you guys giving up with eu spyro cause it’s getting daft lol good update

almighty-slayer 07 March, 2012 @ 13:54
14

Just Journey and free PS+ stuff for me this week then :)

GenocideHeart 07 March, 2012 @ 13:54
15

Yay, Trine 2. And free too.

The rest has some interesting DLC as well.

16

Very sad that there aren’t the Street Fighter X Tekken avatars there, but then knowing what it is like getting Capcom avatars here in Europe then they’ll probably take an age. :(

Anyway, just Access TV for me. Would get the complete UMVC3 costume pack but £15.99 is too much.

Lt_Fed_Brusque 07 March, 2012 @ 13:55
17

Good lordy! Doing this new layout must be a pain in the neck for you :P But thanks for taking the trouble. It lays everything out quite neatly :)

James Gallagher 07 March, 2012 @ 14:15
17.1

I’m still tweaking it to try and get the best balance between how it displays on a PC browsers and the PlayStation Mobile App, but glad you approve of the steps so far.

18

well i really hope the uncharted 3 avatars are there this time. also will we get the street fighter x tekken ones?

awesome weekend , i was wondering if there’s a possibility of kingdom hearts in the PSN

Disappointed by having to wait for Unit 13 when the rest of Europe get it today.

whats happening with the call of duty elite theme ?

22

Could we please have the size details for all Vita content in the future as space is a premium on the memory cards.

Got my copy of ME3 yesterday why are you so slow ;-) Anyways nice update…

spacedelete1 07 March, 2012 @ 13:56
24

for the love of god when will we finally get some decent PS2 games ? Sony do you not want my money ?

get Vice City and San Andreas on the PS store ASAP!!!!!

25

Where is I am Alive? It was released on the US store today.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:33
25.1

No announced date yet.

26

When will we be able to get Mortal Kombat through PSN ?

27

Some PSone/PS2 classics suggestions :):

Dragon Valor (PSone)
Nightshade (PS2)
Rogue Galaxy (PS2)
Dirge Of Cerebrus: FF7 (PS2)
Legaia 2 (PS2)
Star Ocean 3 (PS2)

De Blob 2 for AUD$12.99 is that a typo? If it’s correct then that’s a freaking bargain!

29

Still interested to know what is happening with Alundra (PSOne Classics)? It was submitted to you ages ago and has yet to make an appearance on the store.

Trine 2 at last, hallelujah!!

Apology accepted guys, time to get Plus again.

Bengi-Hustla 07 March, 2012 @ 13:59
31

So Journey isn’t coming out today? US Plus subscribers get early access.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:34
31.1

It will be out today.

Price for Homefront is wrong in £ :D

“For the Vita be sure to check out the upcoming post on that.”

When? today?

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:47
33.1

Due to the small update for Vita we’ve bundled it into this post, so that statement is a little out of date now.

#25 – I Am Alive wasn’t released on the US store, it’s only on Xbox for now. No release date for PSN yet

That new layout is a mess, the old layout was much easier to scroll through especially on mobile devices.

Unit 13 on Friday…what’s the deal with that? The blog post yesterday stated it would be on the store today?

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:48
35.1

For mainland Europe it’s out today. For UK and Ireland it’ll be out on Friday (in line with the retail release).

Connor_mufc_1985 07 March, 2012 @ 13:59
36

Jawad the Uncharted 3 avatars are supposed to be free to fortune hunter club members, why doesn’t it say so in your store update, after last week I dont want to be mad again lol

37

Brilliant store update, going to try Shinobi.

FrozenbyteGames 07 March, 2012 @ 14:00
38

Trine 2 finally released. :) I hope that the game redeems itself from the delay trouble, and I hope you guys enjoy it!

– Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine 2

39

@20 – My thoughts exactly. It’s stupid how we are in the exact same PAL territory. Have the exact same game files yet we have to wait 2 extra days to play it.

I know it’s only 2 days but it’s the whole point of knowing it’s ready in other places. Surely it can release for download today and then retail on friday? 2 extra days to pick up sales?

laticspieman 07 March, 2012 @ 14:02
40

Any chance of the star wars battlefront ps2 games appearing as either a hd collection or as ps2 classics on the store? They would be extremly popular!

spacedelete1 07 March, 2012 @ 14:02
41

Sony right now you are taking the bloody mick. either release good PS2 cclassics or release a software emulator so we can play OUR discs we PAYED you back in the PS2 days.

by releasing PS2 shovelware as “PS2 classics” you are giving people who are new to Playstation a bad first impression and will think the PS2 was the worst console ever because all you seem to release is random japanese games and shovelware no one has ever heard of.

Homefront – Was £8.79, now £27.99…I want the original price Jawad! Great update, you’ve really been treating us recently!

BrianDamage7 07 March, 2012 @ 14:02
43

Nice update, unfortunately the table displays very badly with some info unreadable is viewing on the Playstation App!

James Gallagher 07 March, 2012 @ 14:17
43.1

I’m still tweaking the table to try and get the perfect balance between how it displays on a PC browser and how the app. takes the feed and renders it. I should have it nailed by next week’s update.

Hey jawad,

I second post #1 – I’ve been asking for a sale on the PSP Syphon Filter games for over a year now! Please make it happen and/or give us an indication of it’s likelihood.

Cheers,

Si_85

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:52
44.1

I’ll let Andy know as he deals with this area. I’ll pass on your suggestions.

@40 Shinobi was, and still is, a fantastic game!

46

Hey so when you say for Vita check out the upcoming post, is that upcoming as in today or upcoming as in this week sometime?

Thank you for Trine 2, it’s a great choice for PS+!

Does this: “Vidzone Trailer Ex,BU,CR,CZ,GR,HU,IN,IS,KU,PL,QA,RU,SA,SL,ZA,TK,UK,UA” mean these countries are going to get VidZone now?

48

I hope you’re all excited for the release of ThatGameCompany’s Journey on March 14th in SCEE – the game has been receiving some amazing reviews and truly is a masterpiece. But why wait to find out? This Wednesday, our PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get their hands on Journey one whole week before everyone else and grab yourselves a free Plus-Exclusive Dynamic Theme.

So…. where is journey?

Homefront Now £27.99 was £8.79 ?!?!?!

Jawad is there a chance of Jill and Shuma for mvc3 being discounted any time soon?

51

also put suikoden 2 as PS1 classic please

notice how U.S get mass effect 3 for £37 ish when you convert the money but we still have to pay £50

is this why you don’t put $ price on you put euro and aus is that scee thinking we are muppets and pay it well id rather slit my own wrists and jump off a cliff than pay that price it is digital for god sakes we should be getting these cheaper every shop and online retailer lists that price as an rrp but no one ever pays that so why do we on here

laticspieman 07 March, 2012 @ 14:06
53

Oh yes and if resi 2 and 3 was released as us imports please could you do the same for the spyro ps1 trilogy?

Wheres the journey? if thats not out today after me getting PS Plus for it I will flip

Hello Jawad! I have quite a few things to discuss this week and one comment won’t be enough.

Part 1:

1. A Question About Imports
We’re excited that Resident Evil 2 & 3 finally came to the Store last week, Jawad. They are US Imports because, as far as I’ve heard, the PAL versions had some persistent problems in QA and so You guys opted for the Import release instead of keeping us waiting. Now, what I’d like to know is whether or not we will ever see the PAL versions replace the US Imports? This question pertains to every PS1/PS2 game that had a PAL disc release but gets a US Import release on the Store instead because of various reasons. It’s not really necessary because HDTVs have no problem displaying NTSC content (I own a few PS3 games from North America) but I’d prefer the PAL versions if it’s possible.

2. Game Soundtracks
There are a few game soundtracks available for download on the Store but not nearly enough. Many games on PlayStation platforms had their soundtracks released ...

2. Game Soundtracks
There are a few game soundtracks available for download on the Store but not nearly enough. Many games on PlayStation platforms had their soundtracks released on disc or for download on iTunes and elsewhere but not on PlayStation Store. Whatever licensing issues are involved, I say Sony should sort them out and strive to make every released game soundtrack available on the Store as well.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 15:56
55.1

1. Correct, these are the US imports. I can’t really say what the plans are whether the EU versions will see a release.

2. I have passed this suggestion around previously but will do so again.

ME3 DLC already? geez EA are craaaaazy.

Will be downloading Plus content and Journey today, can’t wait! :)

guitardevil6 07 March, 2012 @ 14:07

Hi Jawad, I asked this of Ross, but if you could bug Konami to release the Silent Hill PSP games onto the store (Vita compatible) that would be great!

Since there’s three games released this month, thought it would be the best time to get their PSP games onto the store!

Great update, will definitely get Trine 2. You left out prices for Motorstorm RC cars, just to let you know..

Keep up the great work!

Haha, oh wow at the ME3 price for Australians. 50 GBP is not 110 AUD, it’s AU$74.50. Then it’s another $16 for the cut content, too. Anyone foolish enough to pay this much deserves the terrible writing and stock images.

59

Justice at last!

Part 2:

3. Regional Availability
Every week, a lot of new content that gets released is not available in some regions. For example, when Crash Bandicoot 2 was released, it wasn’t available in the Czech Republic and other regions, which made me sad. But a few weeks ago, when I was browsing the Czech Store, I stumbled upon it, did a happy dance and bought it. But the problem is that I wasn’t notified of Crash 2 becoming available in my country. So, Jawad, I suggest that You include instances of content becoming available in regions where it was previously unavailable in the weekly updates. It would be a very welcome feature.

4. File Sizes
The Store updates You post, Jawad, include the file sizes of the individual pieces of content, which we appreciate. But when I go to the Store, only some content has a file size requirement included in the description. I request that someone gets on that and retrofits every piece of content (or at least full games and add-ons) with its file size. It’...

So, Jawad, I suggest that You include instances of content becoming available in regions where it was previously unavailable in the weekly updates. It would be a very welcome feature.

4. File Sizes
The Store updates You post, Jawad, include the file sizes of the individual pieces of content, which we appreciate. But when I go to the Store, only some content has a file size requirement included in the description. I request that someone gets on that and retrofits every piece of content (or at least full games and add-ons) with its file size. It’s definitely a reasonable request, I think.

3. Sometimes the game just isn’t allowed to be released in a territory or the publisher doesn’t have the rights to do so. There’s usually a few reasons this can happen but we try to get games out to as many areas as we can.

Certain changes do happen over time where a game does become available in a region it wasn’t previously. I’m not always made aware of this so I’m not able to mention it but I will put these up if and when they occur.

4. File sizes are something we are aware of and will be looking at.

Hiya.

I’m wondering if dynamic themes can be updated? I noticed in their information on the PS3 and they have version numbers. It’s just that I’m reluctant to buy them with outdated icons. My favourite was “Sackboy on the Run”, one of the first premium themes, but obviously it’s no good now because it’s outdated and ugly.

jawad ask capcom for street fighter v tekken avatars, Re5, re4, Mvc3 avatars this is gone beyond a joke now! once again poor update as usual

Part 3:

5. Content Getting Pulled
When I was composing the list of PS1 games I’d like too see released, it included “Bishy Bashy Special”. Now, this game was released a few years ago but it disappeared from the Store for some reason. Hence why it was on my list. But it recently reappeared. Neither the pulling nor the “re-releasing” of the game was reported to us. So, Jawad, by the same extension as my previous point, this needs to be included in the weekly Store updates. Notify us when a game that was released gets pulled from the Store, give us an explanation as to why and possibly an ETA on when it will be back. Finally, notify us when it eventually does come back.

6. Net Yaroze Games
I came up with this last week so I’ll just reiterate. It would be lovely if all the Net Yaroze games that were released on OPSM demo discs could be compiled into one bundle and released on the Store as a PS One Classic or something, either for free or at a price that would go to the original creators...

5. Some games will get pulled for a number of reasons. There may be licensed content in the game that the publisher no longer has rights to use. There may have been something errornous that has been found. Again, quite a few reasons why this can happen. Similar to my answer to your previous question, if I’m made aware of this in due course then I will surely let you guys know, too.

6. I’ll let the team know but please don’t hold your breath.

When does the store update today? Thanks

PSone classics to Vita, any news on that?

Fitzmonkey_Devil 07 March, 2012 @ 14:11
66

Zero content for Vita then! Apart from Harry Potter and Unit 13 which is on Friday! Was looking forward to at least something today for the £230 machine but o well another week it is… Jawad do you know if and when there will be any firmware updates for the Vita? My PS1 classics would be nice to play, or the use of the SKYPE app and the ability to see and manage game saves and other content like the option to delete individual saves to free space on the memory card

Can you go back to the list format. The table layout is horrible on PS App.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 16:07

Jawad..
Can you say if or when I AM ALIVE is due for EU release, i know the US never got it so it must be another timed (hopefully) exclusive for xbox, (they got it yesterday).. Also i am glad the RED FACTION ARMAGEDON game is now priced more realistically, it was kinda hard to take the store seriously when it had that 57 pounds price tag. Not too much for me, apart from the good plus content, but as someone mentioned i’d like to try a demo for NINJA GAIDEN on VITA if there planning one.

69

Hi Jawad
Decent update and im looking forward to Unit 13.

I have 2 questions:
1. What is “Revised Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Value Pack”
2. For Motorstorm RC, the trophies show that there will be 2 carnival DLC packs. do you know when we can expect these?

Journey where is Journey ?

Jouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurney

I am very happy Plus subscriber and feel I get a lot of content for the fee.

Any chance of getting the PS2 GTA games anytime soon on the Store?

Keep up the good work!

#50 US don’t have all the Tax EU does (some stats have gaming tax)

Happy i import my Neptunia MK2 seen as DK don’t have access to it

74

@INS1GHTFUL

The Revised Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Value Pack is all of the costume DLC bundled together.

75

typical SCEE mess again journey went on a journey it self quick some-one capture that escape journey put it on the list. :P

no ps1 classics monkey-paw told lies you take us for fools.

@jawad

we fed up with SCEE disparity with SCEA no lame excuses.

So, I was going to buy Unit 13 and Journey today, but one doesn’t release till Friday to appease scumbag highstreet retailers (many of whom, supermarkets especially, have ZERO problem breaking the release date and selling games early) and the other doesn’t appear to be listed in the update, despite being promised to PS+ subscribers for this week.

Good going SCEE.

Kung_Fu_Russ 07 March, 2012 @ 14:17

Sly HD and Trine 2 free? That’ll do nicely, thanks.

Part 4:

7. The PlayStation Blogcast
There is an official PlayStation Blog podcast for the North American territory. How about doing the same for the PAL territories?

8. The Issue of PS1/PS2 Classics in General
This point is too long and won’t fit in one comment so I’ll just summarise it. Since not all big publishers have community forums or e-mails where we could make our voices heard about which PS1/PS2 we’d like to see on the Store, a dedicated, Sony-maintained website would be much better. It would feature COMPLETE lists of PS1 and PS2 games that haven’t been released and update us on which phases games slated for release are. We would vote with our SEN IDs on which games we want to see next. A good way to gauge demand would be limiting our votes to an ordered list of, let’s say, 25 games. Weighted averages and all that. This would provide Sony with concrete data to give to publishers.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 16:12

Really wanted some new avatars specially street fighter x tekken guess a good few months to wait shame they can’t come out earlier like Xbox live bring the content before release kinda to brag.is there gonna be a Europe wide release on games in future as I don’t think I herd why UK has Friday release where rest of Europe gets few days earlier I’d love to have my digital downloads bang on 00:01 on a Wednesday .

I think there’s an error on the ps3 sales section. For Homefront it says the new price is £27.99. Isn’t it suppose to say £8.79.

p.s. when would we get Gravity Daze demo for the PS Vita

81

Hi guys, long time reader, first time poster. Just want to say that some of us appreciate the effort you guys must put in to get us good content as I know you have a lot of countries to deal with. So kudos to you guys for trying.

Anyway, enough butt kissing, good update, and MAJOR kudos to Sega for getting Shinobi up there. Was thinking about it yesterday, but thought that i’d never see it and bought Sonic Heroes… now i’ll have to wait a little bit to get Shinobi as i’m saving up for a Vita.

I do have just one question though Jawad. Sega last year said that the Mega Drive classic ‘Revenge of Shinobi’ was coming to PSN at the end of the year, but its still not arrived. Any clue if its actually coming?

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 16:33
81.1

Interesting. I’ll try and find out more about that.

82

GG giving Vita the Go-treatment. Maybe we’re supposed to get adjusted to all the buttons for a couple of more weeks (aka forever). Yet another missed opportunity.

Trince 2 not in ZA :O

Will we still get it later? or will we get something else like the RE2 for germany?
Was really looking forward to this!

Guri_Tricolor 07 March, 2012 @ 14:27
84

This is just awesome!
Really wasn’t expecting trine 2 for free, I renewed my ps+ right after the plus post!
Can’t wait to get home and download sly too

One question Jawad, can you call my boss and say I’ll be sick till next week? Thanks!

85

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/03/06/these-are-the-psn-gamers-choice-winners-get-them-cheap-this-we/

Is this US only or are they sale games coming to EU PSN aswell ?

Hi Jawad great work, but I just wanted to check if you know anything concerning the status of the C2-12383-7 PS store Error connected to Tales from space: About a mutant blob? Thanks for your time and any information is much appreciated.

Yes! Trine 2 finally. and 30% off too awesome.It is 3D enabled right? Because I got myself one of those a few weeks back.Dungeon Defenders looks great in 3d btw.

88

I would definitely pay £49.99 for Mass Effect 3 if SCEE was allowed to release it digitally at the same time it gets released in the states. Especially with AAA titles like this, which is mostly due to constant spoilers. Hearing a lot of this has took the shine off the game a little bit for me.

But good Ps Plus update though.

CardcaptorStacey 07 March, 2012 @ 14:31
89

Are we ever going to get Okami and Atelier Totori avatars?

90

I Still haven’t recieved my payday code from over half a year ago (I think?)

91

I would have purchased De Blob 2, but I can pick this up retail, for £6!

Warhammer: Kill Team & free PLUS content for me this week! :)

Any chance we could receive the ZEN Bundle, that was released within the Japan store today? It includes Flow & Flower, Or maybe Flower for free with Spring incoming! ;)

92

@ Lethalx08

That question was answered within the PLUS update!

Here was the answer “The Gamer’s Choice Awards are a US only promotion I’m afraid, HOWEVER, we have a parallel program planned for the future.”

I think you guys at SCEE should take more time to answer questions, all we want is fast, simple answers, and you wont have to scroll through hundreds of comments everytime you update.

Even if you dont know the answer, or has no clue about a release date, just say that, it’s very easy.

I’ll start with brining up the most anticipated games.

FFVII: Crisis core (Is Square-Enix silent? then tell us that)

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep(Is Disney and/or SQ silent? then tell us)

All in all, I hope you can work on giving us more information in the future.
As I said earlier, we are happy with just a short answer, even if the game is not going to be released, so we can see that you are working hard on the case.

Now it feels like you are just giving us the finger… for shame.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 16:42

Your suggestions have been noted.

For CC and BbS, I haven’t heard a thing, sad to say. Remember, SE have their own blog so be sure to ask away directly and let them know.

94

Another great update.
And Trine finally here! Yes.
The special deal is a really great step to make up for the delay.
100% off for Plus is incredible.

In any case I am happy to pay for Trine 2 as it really deserves all the sales it can get.

Also thanks to Joel from Frozenbyte for the continued postings here and for being open and informative during the whole time.

While I understand the reasons why Sony would not comment on such matters – frankly – it just makes them look very unlikable and arrogant in their attitude. Even if it’s not their fault.
So having Joel here being very upfront and open about the whole matter was refreshing and avoided a lot of bad feelings.
Kudos for caring!
I am happy to support these kind of companies especially when they create such great products like Trine. :)

FrozenbyteGames 07 March, 2012 @ 14:40

@88 Kimpeo Trine 2 is not 3D enabled on the consoles unfortunately. We’re using all the graphics power available to make the game look gorgeous and run smooth, so there was nothing left for 3D. Sorry! I hope you’ll enjoy the game anyhow.

– Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine 2

Helvedeshunden 07 March, 2012 @ 14:41

So… I was a bit surprised that more than half of my downloadable PSP games didn’t work on my Vita. Titles like Killzone: Liberation, Gran Turismo, Tetris, Pixeljunk Monsters, Crazy Taxi and more “big” titles won’t work. I never saw anywhere on this blog or in any advertisements or information that compatibility was less than 100%.

Also, minis-titles through PS+ don’t work at all.

Any info on either or both?

Any chance of getting Chrono Cross as an American PSN import?

WELSHDRAGON_74 07 March, 2012 @ 14:41

hey Mr Jawad when is I AM ALIVE coming to PSN???? please could u give me a answer as i am well excited for the game please dnt say its s#itbox360 onjy lol

I agree +1 ;)

FrozenbyteGames 07 March, 2012 @ 14:43

Oh and thanks everyone for thanking us/me, it’s much appreciated. It’s been some grueling weeks/months lately. :) We hope the game and the discount makes up for everything though, so hopefully it’s all been worth it. :)

Trine 2 at last!! Great Plus freebie as due to the delay I would not have bought it.
I would be interested to see what the developers make of the delay as even with the 30% off. They must be down on sales and £££.
How the 360 manage a worldwide release is clearly beyond Sony!

Any sign of the PLAY codes for the dlc for Renegade Ops?
The lack of communication does not encourage me to take part in future PSN promotions!

Is there some announcement coming this week re the Vita?
Still waiting for ps one games, minis, remote play compatibility of the £100”s worth of PSN games I’ve already bought.

Jawad Ashraf 07 March, 2012 @ 14:53

Renegade codes are being sorted out. Anyone who purchased this at the time of the promotion will be receiving an e-mail soon.

I just bought PS Plus through my colleagues PS3 – but it disconnected me at the checkout, so I went back in and tried again.. I’ve been billed twice!!

That’s a lot of money to needlessly be leaving my account! I phone tech support and got given a reference number and that the issue would be escalated – seriously, how hard is it to get a refund for an unintentional purchase?

What should I do next James? Please help.

103

Great.
Glad to see that the Vita has nothing today.

Are Sony seriously going to let this go the same way as the failure that was the GO (which only failed to to lack of support from Sony)

We paid for the Vita – where is the content?
And why on earth is Unit13 delayed until 9th.

Now this is the update I’ve been waiting for! Journey is out today too right?

105

Indeed – is Journey appearing later or not?
This ( http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2012/03/05/heads-up-playstation-plus-update-7th-march-2012/ ) posted on March 5th says it is, and today’s post doesn’t. Clarity please!

@James Gallagher

Sorry to post this here – but I haven’t received my code from the weekend debate for Worms Ultimate Mayhem (really happy at winning – thanks)

Is there any chance you could follow this up please?

On-Topic, looks like a decent store update and will certainly be getting the new cars for Motorstorm R/C

Oh dear, the problem there is that you need to have logged in to http://community.eu.playstation.com at least once for your PM function to be ‘activated’. I’m assuming you have now logged in to check, meaning this activation is now complete, and will arrange for it to be resent.

109

Agree with 66 except for the PS Vita Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack c*ck up! Would love a code to download the FIXED version or money back into my account so I can actually get the game again!

BigPaja for president!

111

Hello,

I noticed that THQ are having some of their games on sale, could you possibly ask them if they could put all their Red Faction and SR2 dlc on sale? I’d happily buy it all once I play through those games. To be specific on the games: Red Faction Guerilla (especially for Demons of the Badlands), Red Faction Armageddon (for the storyline dlc) and SR 2 (all packs?).

Also, any eta on Tombi 1 and 2?

And could you possibly ask Activision if they have any plans to put their PS1 Spiderman titles on the store?

112

hi gawad nice update but any chance to get ASURA’S WRATH avatar & street fighter v tekken avatar :)
salam

Where is the so promised Journey for today!?

114

So the Yanks get a Journey preorder + exclusive dynamic theme.

What about EU? Peanuts?

115

WHOA! WAIT!

Trine 2 not available in ZA???? ???? ????

What does that mean? Why aren’t we getting it?
If we aren’t, what are we getting instead of it for PS+?

:( <– Sad Panda

spikemad2005 07 March, 2012 @ 15:00
116

For people whinging about content for the Vita. Give it chance for christ sake. The launch line up was good, we have Gravity Rush coming soon and Unit 13 on friday.

I’m still happy playing Plants vs Zombies and Uncharted ;)

117

great update this week….best for ages, but where is journey? I was under the impression from reading sites on the net that ps+ users got it a week early.

CoolRichy008UK 07 March, 2012 @ 15:06
118

james im getting journey saturday hopefully woooo & when will we get ps2 crash bandicoot games added 2 the store

119

@ Ryusennin (114)

Journey is out today with the free dynamic theme, but for Plus users only. It’s updated for the rest of the store next week.

CoolRichy008UK 07 March, 2012 @ 15:07
120

mark they r still updating the store just wait LOL

Why isn’t the South African PSN Store getting Trine 2? I would really like an explanation.

122

Now that I think about it, I’m starting to wonder if SCEE is afraid to communicate Journey’s price for Europe…

TheCursedMonkey 07 March, 2012 @ 15:10
123

Frobisher says… Put Unit 13 on the UK store today (please)

then why isn’t it listed scuffy?
they’ve listed the other plus content.

125

@James Gallagher

Thanks very much for the quick reply and help with that.

All sorted and come through now. Cheers.

Look forward to it when I get home from work. ;-)

Carnivius_Prime 07 March, 2012 @ 15:12
126

Uncharted avatars and the free Sly Cooper for me thanks. Not much else though I’m still working through Jak & Daxter from last week. Must say though Jak II is extremely disappointing. Really enjoyed the first game but the second changed the format into some relatively tedious and at times frustratingly difficult game (with stupid time limits) seemingly based on GTA. I haven’t tried Jak III yet but I hope it’s more like the first game.

127

geez Thanks SCEE i like the free 6k unlock key now where the trail typical MESS.

btw journey is there £9.99 i can wait a bit for it.

Sistergodiva 07 March, 2012 @ 15:15

Great update! Journey is there.

Really, most people commenting here are so horribly whiny and entitled that I feel ashamed for them.

129

Hi Jawad,

Like the table, but:

1. downloadable content appears twice? needs to be clearer which platform the DLC applies to

2. demo section needs breaking up by PS3/PSV/PSP

Any new PSP content on the horizon?

Thanks!

James is there any chance of us + subscribers being able to “opt in” for the full liscense of a 100% discount game in future. I would gladly pay for Trine 2 NOW and be able to keep it forever, rather then get it for free till whenever + becomes defunct (when PS4 rolls around?). The fact that I’m going to miss out on the 30% off is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Would really appreciate any response you could offer me. Keep up the good work with the blog!

Joe

@ comment 126 (Sistergodiva)

I understand what u r saying, although, most of us here aren’t at home now to confirm that, and Journey isn’t listed under the Playstation Plus as it should.

no killzone yet :(

134

@ Carnivius_Prime

Jak 3 is much the same as Jak 2 i’m afraid….for yourself anyway!

I personally preferred 2&3 as I like a challenge.

Bit of a drastic change from 1-2 though don’t you think? I hope your experience with Jak 2 gets better & the frustrations don’t put you off, as the Jak trilogy are truly great titles ;)

sandystrachan 07 March, 2012 @ 15:21

love how this now looks on the iOS app works perfectly :-)
So journey is 9.99£ .

Sistergodiva 07 March, 2012 @ 15:22
136

@ 131 At least give them the benefit out doubt, all I see is people expecting to not have Journey even though they said we would. Though I agree that they should have answered the posts asking and updateed the post as soon as they could.

scee have long ago exhausted any benefit of the doubt they’re owed.

the reason so many people assumed scee messed up, is because that’s exactly what they expected them to do.

as to “they said”
ever hear the story of the boy who cried wolf?

138

HazelIAM, Journey was discussed in the PS+ blog update yesterday. This is the regular store bog update. Two different things.

sandystrachan 07 March, 2012 @ 15:28

@131 journey is there its price is £9.99

@115,120 TheVVolf, Lonthor

Trine 2 ZA/South Africa, I’m not sure why the game is not available there. It could be an age rating issue (I know the XBLA version was/is also not available). I’ll see if I can get some answers to this later this week (or perhaps Jawad knows).

– Joel, Frozenbyte team, developers of Trine 2

141

At least I hope SCEE doesn’t screw this up. It’s not like they haven’t done it before…numerous times.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

142

Any plans for the PS app to come to the Vita?

I am confused, it says in blog that trine 2 costs 7.99€, but in store it is 11,25€?

eye Put Unit 13 on the UK store
today #######

how many times have they said we’d be getting something just a day before they delay it for months?

look at Trine 2.
the day before it was due to come out they were talking about the release, in fact with trine i think they were the same day.
then just as the store update list was posted, no mention of it.

scee are known liars, why would i believe them?

they listed the plus content and journey wasn’t there.

the funny thing is, i did believe them when they didn’t make any mention of the game.

well, lesson learned, never believe a word from scee on this blog.
at least not till i’ve seen it with my own eyes.

Carnivius_Prime 07 March, 2012 @ 15:38
146

@Catkiller1 I just can’t understand the logic in designing Jak II so different from Jak I.

@Catkiller1 I just can’t understand the logic in designing Jak II so different from Jak I. The first game is a lot of fun and full of colorful vibrant environments and lots of collecting stuff and killing enemies and exploring and all that. So far Jak II has been all about travel through a boring gray city to this place, then travel back through the boring gray city to this bit and then travel back through the boring gray city to another bit.

Many times I’ve been killed right at the very end only have to start it all again and with other non-game activities taking up a lot of my free time I just don’t feel like using what little I have left to replay the same boring bits over and over and over all the while screaming in frustration…

SCEE continuing the trend of promising one thing and delivering another. Trine 2 for free is great as an apology but.you then go on to make even more mistakes!

Unit 13 is trying to make me break my “no games over £30 recession policy”. Damn you ZI

Thanks to 135 and 138.
Playstation EU confirmed it to me on twitter either.
But in part this is as 136 is saying, since they mess up a lot of times, people get in doubt!

please Jawad can you tell me when GTA 3 and Vice City will become PS2 classics on PS store ?

im tired of games this gen trying to be movies so to replay Vice City on the PS3 which is also better than 99% of PS3 games it would be nice.

please reply as my PS3 is starving for some nostalgia.

Not sure what Sony promised and what they haven’t delivered this week?

Great update though, thanks.

this new layout does not fit the iPhone 4 screen!! Plus where have the file sizes for downloads gone????????

Will we ever see GTA San Andreas on playstation store?

Oh no, someone screw something again :( Uncharted 3 avatars were supposed to be free for FHC members but they are not! Can you fix this, please?

Uncharted avatars aren’t showing as ‘free’ for me despite being a Fortune Hunter Club member.

@153 and 154 this is the 2nd time in 2 weeks us fortune hunter members have been screwed over with the avatars im guessing it’ll be another week before its put right …. what a joke

Come on please release CHOPLIFTER HD ON SWEDEN

The table view is cool for pcs but way less cooler for your mobile app. specially on smallee screens like my Xperia X8 has. A really cool solution is to add a landscape mode to the app.

PS+ is lookng better and better all the time! Think i’ll sign up :)

Just bought and downloaded Journey for £9.99. I know plus users get it a week early (or inline with America…how is should be anyway), but if next week the price drops for Plus users with the usual discount, SCEE are crooks. Plain and simple. Oh, and where’s the exclusive dynamic theme? I hope SCEE don’t use the laughable voucher system…that never works.

Anyway, I’m just about to begin playing Trine 2. I already bought it for the 360 last year, but it’s a great game so I’m looking forward to playing it again.

Between that, Journey, and I am Alive (360) it’s a good day for digital distribution (assuming you ignore the £50 asking price for Mass Effect 3 LMAO!!).

149 I think the GTA games vill be hard, considering all the music. I don’t think they wrote the liscenses with digital distrubution in mind back then, getting another liscense for each track of music in every eu country again is gonna be almost impossible I think.

when are we getting dust 514 ?,

Hello,

The Touch My Katamari ‘Download Requests’ are missing from the store. They were listed in this blog on Vita launch day, and are linked in the game’s LiveArea, but it says no content exists in store.

Thanks.

164

@ Sisergodiva

I think it has more to do with Rockstars plan’s to release HD Remastered versions of GTA 3, Vice, San Andreas etc, than music licencing.

165

168

Hey Jawad, I’m not sure if anybody has said yet, but I downloaded the suited Drake avatar and went onto my avatars and it was instead the unit 13 avatar, any chance you guys can fix this?

170

So yeah, I bought the two Uncharted 3 avatar packs, but when I went to see them they were all Unit 13 avatars. This is going to be fixed, right?

Cya!

Comon,people have been requesting throughout their existence for Spyro. Its heavily requested so why not release it as imports? Everybody who has requested wants emulated versions for a reason. This is that you cant rely on an individual to sell you their copy of the game as the disc may be scratched when they say it is mint. Please get this sorted because firstly you will make a lot of money out of this. Secondly you will give Sony a good name by working as efficient as possible. If US can get spyro into their stores why not you guys? If you guys are still doing the EU versions of the Spyro games then forget it and put the imports on Sale and I dont care if they are different than EU as US imports work the same as EU games. Please get this sorted A.S.A.P

172

I’m having issues downloading content that needs activation, ie game demos, full games, avatars and themes. Videos download fine.
Is this a known issue?
I hope it gets sorted quickly. I want to play Trine!

173

Demo’s Everybody’s Golf is that the original PS3 Release.

Will we be getting anything special on PS3 birthday?

174

Great Plus this month, bravo. Good update all round I’d say – the THQ sale ain’t bad and I’m very tempted by de Blob 2.

Great to finally see Red Faction come down from its collosal initial price too lol.

I downloaded the Jak and Daxter theme I got for free as plus member, but I can’t use it because the theme has a very light color and the text font color on PS3 is white only and not possible to change! This makes me sad, because I really wanted to use this theme! :(

176

Where is the call of duty elite theme that they announced they were releasing with the map pack?
