‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update Wednesday 25th April 2012

Greetings citizens!


This week’s front runner is The Walking Dead, courtesy of Telltale Games, who previously brought you the much loved Back to the Future: The Game.

Set within the same universe as the hit comic you take control of Lee Everett, a brand new character for the game. You’ll see the world of The Walking Dead from a new perspective, find out more about existing characters from the comic and see the emotional development of the various characters. With the success of the comic book and TV series, now you can experience The Walking Dead in a new light. What better timing than now, before the next season begins later in the year?

You’ll be able to get a Trial of the game (see below for locale details) as well as the complete episode. There’s also an option to purchase a Season Pass, netting you access to all 5 episodes (episodes 2-5 will release monthly) and an exclusive theme, all at a discounted rate.

Last Friday saw the digital release of Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for the Vita, so if you missed it then be sure to grab it now!


I trust football fans are all over this. Released yesterday (Trial also available), this expansion to FIFA 12 gives you the chance to take on a brand new expedition mode and take on challenges based on the real tournament. Please note, FIFA 12 game disc is required.

O the back of our announcement for an all new God of War, I’m happy to also announce a sale, aptly named The God of War Sale! The sale includes the first two HD titles, the PSP games and some little bits and bobs for other games. Check out the full list below.

And finally, PlayStation Plus members all the details can be found here.

1. Why are Disgaea and Hyperdimension DLC not available in Scandinavian territories?
A. This was sadly a decision the publisher has made. At this time it doesn’t seem likely DLC will be available in the region.

2. Motorstorm Arctic Edge and Everybody’s Tennis for PSP for removed. Are these going to reappear on the store?
A. I believe these are back. They should also be in your download list again.

3. When will Plus members see time trials for full games?
A. We’re looking at launching on May 2nd and to include approximately 17 titles. Please see here for more details.

4. When will Skullgirls release for European territories?
A. The plan is next week, so keep an eye out for any further mutterings on this.

Did you enjoy this?

Hello Jawad

Some new VITA compatibles PSP Games this week?

Asking same question everytime.

Sty_Azores 25 April, 2012 @ 1:26 pm   4

The walking dead for me !

vicheous 25 April, 2012 @ 1:26 pm   5

Nice update today 😉 Walking dead is cool…

Sty_Azores 25 April, 2012 @ 1:27 pm   6

The Walking Dead for me!

Carnivius_Prime 25 April, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   7

Guess April wasn’t correct month for Doctor Who game release either then? I shall keep waiting. Without the TV show on this time of year like it would normally be I’m sorely missing Smith and co and really want that game.

Glad I held off on God of War collection I was tempted to buy and play last week with all that PSN voucher credit I have. I had a suspicion the new game announcement would inspire a sale of the current releases. I think I’ll make the most of that.

EternalChaos72 25 April, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   8

jawad any update on marvel vs capcom 3 avatars? or capcom avatars in general?

    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 2:45 pm    

    MvC3 avatars are tricky because they involve Marvel. Other (Capcom) avatars are definitely planned and hopefully submitted over the coming weeks.

Hi Jawad

Been asking this question for some weeks but since never seem get an answer will try again in the hopes of getting one this time.

When RE4 HD was announced in Europe,Sony promised free avatars for those of us who bought the game.For months Sony said was Capcom fault for the delay and lack of the avatars in the store.Some weeks ago those avatars finally appeared in the store and aren´t free for those that bought RE4 HD.Are we ever going to get them or even we who bought the game,have to pay for them?

StuDevo 25 April, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   10

Hi Jawad,
Just a quick question about PSP games on Vita.
I looked on the store on PS3 and it said Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and the fist Disgaea game and compatible on both Vita and PSP yet I can’t find them on the Vita store. Is this an error, and would downloading them on PS3 and then copying to the Vita work?

Jawad please answer the following questions:

-When is Max Payne(ps2 classics) available for non-plus users ?

-What about Max Payne 2 ? Is he coming to ps2 classics ?

And the most important question:

Is Max Payne 3 coming to PSN store ?
Like ME3 and BF3 which we could bought on the release date…


    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 3:12 pm    

    Max Payne should be available at the same time as Plus users (which should all hopefully be next week, touch wood!)

    Max Payne 2 is MIA…sorry.

    Max Payne 3 won’t be showing up on the store.

NightRanma 25 April, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   12

Why no Walking Dead for Australia? I put money on my PSN account to buy this, but we get screwed over? Typical PSN…

    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 3:14 pm    

    Most likely a ratings issues but I’m awaiting further information to relay back to you guys.

Alannii 25 April, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   13

Any news on if Kingdom Hearts (1 or 2) or Dragon Quest VIII are coming to PSN?

    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 3:19 pm    

    Nope. These would more than likely be announced for Japan first before anywhere else.

Ragowit 25 April, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   14

For people wondering why Disgaea is not available to Sweden and other countries so is my best guess because of the trial that is currently in progress in Sweden where some manga pictures are accused of being child pornography.

So I guess the publisher take the safe road and just not release “manga”-stuff in Sweden and neighbor countries.

squidward88 25 April, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   15

om so wondering for the ps2 classics do you think you might be able to get that Red Card football game

and when will we be able to play ps1 games on the vita

    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 3:20 pm    

    It’s not on the cards (no pun).

    No new info on Vita x PSOne side of things.


hi sony or sony staff please please please please put tekken 4 on eu psn store please lol

    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 3:21 pm    

    I will ask but it’s probably a large job given the content of the Tekken games (FMVs).

Boycey83 25 April, 2012 @ 1:31 pm   17

Is Ridge Racer Vita ever going to get the 3rd additional course that comes with the Gold Pass?

squidward88 25 April, 2012 @ 1:31 pm   18

so i was wondering for the ps2 classics do you think you might be able to get that Red Card football game

and when will we be able to play ps1 games on the vita

Spider-jam 25 April, 2012 @ 1:31 pm   19

Hi Jawad,

Zuma was released on the PSN a few years ago. Is there any reason why it’s listed again here? Is there any new content?

    Jawad Ashraf 25 April, 2012 @ 3:26 pm    

    A re-release. It can show up if the original was a bundle, under an alternate name, alternate publisher etc. Feeding Frenzy also falls into one of these categories.

And what about The Cursed Crusade(full ps3 game) ?

It’s on US psn store from today…


I wish ‘Everybody’s Golf: World Tour Complete Edition’ had Trophies 🙁
+ ‘Quantic Dream – Kara Trailer’? Cool! 😛

VicRattlehead 25 April, 2012 @ 1:32 pm   22

i take it darkstalkers 3 will never get a psn release like the US then?

Shou_Kobayashi 25 April, 2012 @ 1:32 pm   23

Hmm.. waiting for a Batman: Arkham City DLC announcement here on the PS Blog. Since you can’t share exact details and some sources say beginning 30.04. I ask you rather this question, which you can likely answer, without exactly telling anything.

Is it likely to see something related to a not named caped crusader, who as an affinity for underaged sidekicks in the next store update with no guarantee or what-so-ever

nemesisND1derboy 25 April, 2012 @ 1:32 pm   24

Any news on when our PS One classics will be playable on Vita? It’s been over 2 months since the EU launch and 4 since the Japanese launch and they’re still not playable except via remote play, which really isn’t good enough. This was an advertised feature.

MieszkoIV 25 April, 2012 @ 1:32 pm   25

Hi Jawad!

Is there any chance you could ask anybody if Persona 3 FES is coming to the EU PSN anytime soon? Waiting for it two weeks already :C 😉

Cheers 🙂

AaronSOLDIER 25 April, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   26

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Complete Collection – $24.99
Everybody’s Golf: World Tour Complete Edition – £23.99

No thanks.

Elite_1989 25 April, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   27

Can’t wait to try the Dragons Dogma Demo and The Walking Dead, will also download some avatars and Warriors Orochi DLC. Good update 🙂

Any new info on Whether the Timesplitters games are coming to the store as PS2 classics?

guitardevil6 25 April, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   28

Will get the Skype App for the Vita, that’s cool!

Jawad, could you look at getting the Silent Hill PSP games onto the Vita store please?

Thanks for the update on the games that were removed Jawad. The Motorstorm Arctic Edge that was released as part of the 10 free PSP Go promo games does not show up on my download list. I can see the normal game on the store though, but if I want it back I need to pay for that one. Do you have any update on this? Thanks.


Nice update, great prices for the God of War collections.

Do you know if there are any plans to release Bejeweled 3 on the Vita as it would seem a natural fit?

Also, any further update on Auditorium?

hbrilakis 25 April, 2012 @ 1:34 pm   31

Any news on Closure and World Gone Sour? Thanks

runicdagaz 25 April, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   32

Hey Jawad, thanks for the update.

Two (related) questions for you:

1) Will there be more Disgaea avatars in the (near) future
2) Will these be available everywhere? I’m in Belgium, and the one released avatar is not on the store here.

Thanks 🙂

CassyChan 25 April, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   33

Awesome, some nice GoW offers for those who haven’t played through the series yet, well timed with the new GoW’s announcement.

Ninja Gaiden 3 Ultimate Ninja Pack for me today, though I won’t be touching it until I beat the UN trials and finally get the plat. As a reminder to other NG3 players Tecmo Koei said this DLC will only be free for a month… so best to grab it now while it’s free, if you’re insane/bored enough to want to tackle the UN difficulty that is (I’m looking forward to the rage inducing deaths from off-screen one-hit-kill grabs, lol) 🙂

Everybody’s Golf: World Tour Complete Edition €29.99
Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Complete Collection $24.99

Why so big difference in price?


@@$€@£{£${$]$€[$€{£€{]}\$£€£$ OMG WHY ARE WE NOT GETTING Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention IN SWEDEN!!! Seriosuly [DELETED].

This really is making me [DELETED] off as I want to go only download on psvita.

AoNekoAmaru 25 April, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   36

Dragon’s Dogma Demo~<3

No news about Phantasy Star Portable 2 coming back to the Store and thus the PSVita?

MrSmadSmartAlex 25 April, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   37

Any word on whether Legend of Dragoon will get a release over here? I know they’re getting it in NA next week. Always wanted to try it, but never got around to it, and now it’s ££££££££££££ to get the original.

Skullgirls next week then. Hope it makes it out by then, before I lose interest in it or there are barely any players left online.


A_Nonny_Moose 25 April, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   38

Are we ever getting Sumioni for Vita?

Darlo-Richie 25 April, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   39

Jawad, I asked last week but I would like to know if we’ll get Legend of Dragoon ASAP but also why you couldn’t have worked with SCEA to get both versions out at the same time, it would have been appreciated. I really am getting fed up with these long gaps between releases, not just PSOne but most content these days!


Hi Jawad!

Any of these PSOne games being processed for release ever? (dont care if they are a year from now)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Chrono Cross (import)

Also, hurray for Skype on Vita!


when will the uk psn store update

milkster1001 25 April, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   42

I agree with awwe_se, every time the blog gets updated, I check it out, just hoping to see more PSP games added that are made compatible with the Vita, but it never happens. I’m itching to get a certain PSP title, but it’s not compatible with the Vita, and I’m gutted that nothing has happened to change that.

Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow? That’s the games I’d like to purchase, but why has that not been made compatible with the Vita yet? You guys are brilliant a what you do, informing us and keeping us up to date, so don’t get me wrong, but I’ve been waiting since the Vita’s release, for this one particular game, and it’s even more annoying, because Dark Mirror is compatible, yet Logan’s Shadow isn’t?

Nevertheless, the Skype app looks great, so I’ll check that out, and hopefully be back here same time next week, to see more PSP games compatible with the Vita, especially Logan’s Shadow.

andy08ps 25 April, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   43

cool update liking walking dead (too bad no demo for AU)

Where is the remaining course for the Gold Pass of Ridge Racer for the Vita? I can’t believe you’re selling the Silver Pass when the Gold Pass hasn’t even finished yet.

A few demos there I want to try so a good update for me. 🙂

What happened to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning second DLC “Teeth of Naros”?

adumr82 25 April, 2012 @ 1:40 pm   49

Quick warning to people about FIFA, over half the teams aren’t licensed and feature fake kits and fake player names. don’t waste your money. we shouldn’t encourage ea with things like this. even host nation Ukraine isn’t licensed.

DizzyQViper 25 April, 2012 @ 1:40 pm   50

Hi Jawad

i regret to inform the Atelier Totori DLC is *STILL* broken on the Dutch PSN Store.
In addition the Disgaea 4 Avatars show up as an empty category on the Dutch PSN Store.

It would be great if this would be fixed in a timely matter.


well was interested in The Walking Dead until I noticed the price discrepancy – in the US they are selling the game for $19.99 which is the equivalent of £12.4066 (£12.41)

£15.99 is actually $25.7681 ($25.77)

even the inclusion of US high end sales tax (10-12%) does not account for this discrepancy

so why exactly is Telltale expecting Europe to subsidise the game in the US? I realise this has been mentioned before but SCEE really needs to tell publishers that their pricing needs to be fair across all regions – not only do we usually wait longer for games but we are paying more and this seriously needs to be adressed

chrisandsheva 25 April, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   52

Not sure i liked the walking dead trial enough to get the season pass, but Will get ep1 anyway.. and God help my hdd/internet (throttled) speed, as the GoWs are getting bought.
Jawad i have an important query, i Want to buy ME2.. But i allready own cerebus pack, it IS included with the store game yes ?… So why can’t i/others in similar situs be given optoin of recieving the code (via e-mail), Then we could give, or swop allready owned content with m8s… i mean the cerebus pack still costs £12 on store.. Why should i Lose this ‘bonus’ because i allready own it… really think this is unfair…

Artemisthemp 25 April, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   53

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention was on PSN this Friday in UK (check on PS3, but as expected would it not be released in Scandinavian or Polen)

Bealinator 25 April, 2012 @ 1:45 pm   54

Hello Jawad,

I’m a very recent PS Vita owner. Could you tell me if there are any rumblings as to a Vita game sale either in terms of first party or third party titles?

If a certain high street retailer continues to be a huge Rip-off I could get PSN credit off them and just wait for a game sale.

Luna_Dragon 25 April, 2012 @ 1:46 pm   55

Hey Jawad, a quick question regarding PS2 classics.
I’m not demanding or expecting you to have an answer to this, but is there a possibility that Samurai Warriors 2 could be in there one day? I know some games for whatever reason cannot be put on it, but seeing as the Koei warriors games are getting a lot more attention on the Store I was hoping maybe theyd consider releasing the classics 😀

I am considering rebuying it for PS2 but if there is any slight possibility (even if its in the very very distant future) it will appear on PSN one day I would rather wait for that.


AndyBeans 25 April, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   56

Oooh, Bejeweled… hang on, £12? I really can’t see the point if I can buy Bejewelled 2 on my phone for £2.

CoolRichy008UK 25 April, 2012 @ 1:49 pm   57

Everybody’s Golf: World Tour Complete Edition looks good i been tryin to get this one for agesssssssss thanx sony il be gettin this one today

i wont bother with bejewled 3 cuz i got it on my pc already and its a cool game

the paintball game i just youtubed it it looks intresting

E_Darkness 25 April, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   58

Well this update sucked.
No Skullgirls? AGAIN. Seriously annoying. You don’t delay a competitive fighting game. Now everyone else has the edge while we have to wait.
I’ve had the huge urge to sell my PS3 for a 360 just so I don’t have to wait.

When are we getting games like the Darkstalker PS1 classic games?

Chaosprower 25 April, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   59

Any relese dates for Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock for PS3/PS Vita?

Blackinwoman 25 April, 2012 @ 1:56 pm   60

Why Knight Fortix 2 minis is still not avaliable in russian ps store ?

CoolRichy008UK 25 April, 2012 @ 1:59 pm   61

black2key 25 April, 2012 @ 2:02 pm   63

Hey, any words on releasing djmax portable 3? It’s been in the us store for a long time, but was somehow never updated here.

edjayjay 25 April, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   64

I’m sorry I thought you said the GOW items were on sale?! Those do not look like sale prices to me!

Hi Jawad, do you know if Max Payne 2 is also coming to the Store as a PS2 classic? like the first one that we are going to get soon.

sharpenedpixel 25 April, 2012 @ 2:07 pm   66

I’ve never heard of all of this extra content for the disc version of Everybody’s Golf, is the Move and 3D available as a free patch?


Why are we not getting does 2 ps 2 classics games?

abdirizak007 25 April, 2012 @ 2:08 pm   68

what about Jak and Daxter will be offering?

M3RL1NS_N3M3S1S 25 April, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   69

Hey Jawad, I dont know if this is the best place to ask but as many will have noticed, when buying a lot of things on the store, like PS+ content at the start of each month, getting everything into the cart is a time consuming process, we have to go into each item, wait a few seconds for the add to cart option to activate, then clear the messages that pop up and go back to the main list where we have to wait for the ratings system to refresh before we can move the cursor/highlight.

I’ve noticed the “Triangle” button has no function in the store, can this be assigned to “Add To Cart” so we can add items quickly and easily from the main list without having to enter each one and select either buy now or add to cart? it would make life a lot easier buying multiple items. 🙂

Crawlingbleed 25 April, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   70

I’m in the UK, 2pm, just checked the PS Store; There is no Dragon’s Dogma or Ninja Gaiden 3 demos on there. Many sites are saying they’re on there too. Why are you saying they’re there when they’re not? is 2pm too ‘early’ for the update? I will check again this evening. (this isn’t the first time this has happened, not impressed.)

    James Gallagher 25 April, 2012 @ 2:12 pm    

    The Store updates later this afternoon (usually 3-5pm); we publish this post earlier in the day because our community told us that they wanted a heads-up of what is coming in each update before it goes live.

MaxRstar 25 April, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   71

can we get the option on ps store to gift games to other psn users?

ZenSelai 25 April, 2012 @ 2:13 pm   72

first we cant get Wheels of Destruction, now Walking Dead. I mean, we have the TV Series here for WD but apparently playing the game is a no no. [DELETED]??

Gooders_Go 25 April, 2012 @ 2:15 pm   73

please release Dragonball z games on the psp and make compatible with the vita please….. any news of this happening? please reply

Isdrake 25 April, 2012 @ 2:15 pm   74

Im not the one usually to complain, but whats up with all the ps2 classics? There are so many jewels out there just waiting for my wallet. But you just release random, crapy games I never heard of like eternal quest..


No surprise there…. No Walking Dead for Australia or New Zealand. 🙁

sakulukk 25 April, 2012 @ 2:19 pm   76

Please update your question number 1 under FAQ, Poland is not in Scandinavia but we also do not get NISA content.

Catkiller1 25 April, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   77

If anyone is interested in Bejewelled 3 then don’t purchase off the store.

Retail release on Friday & includes Zuma & Feeding Frenzy 2 for a mere £3.81 more, than the Bejewelled 3 store price 😉

RagdollMuffins 25 April, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   78

Is it likely to see something related to a not named caped crusader, who as an affinity for underaged sidekicks in the next store update with no guarantee or what-so-ever

That is not likely. The planned EU Store release date for Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC is May 30th. The April 30th date was a mistake.

The related FAQ:

ZenSelai 25 April, 2012 @ 2:25 pm   80

Will Everybody’s Golf World Tour Complete Edition come to a retail release?

Skookie30 25 April, 2012 @ 2:28 pm   81

This is getting silly more disney shovelware tripe it not a ps1 classic, i’m not impress with the 2 ps2 classics however SCEE plus is much better for may.

9 PSN games & a ps2 classic, cloud storage + auto-updates I’m please i didn’t buy all 9 games WOOOOOOOT 😉

Catkiller1 25 April, 2012 @ 2:29 pm   82

If the Everybodys Golf World Tour had 20% off, on par with the US, then I might have considered it!

With the price conversion from the US store & the 20% we should have been able to purchase it, as a PLUS member for around £12! 🙁

Please don’t give me that TAX speel, as I have purchased numerous digital titles from the US store & the TAX has been $0


Wow bejweld3 price is way to OVERPRICED.

Pompeyfan14 25 April, 2012 @ 2:34 pm   84

Thanks for the update. I was wondering if NFL Blitz was ever likely to come to European territories? It’s been out in the US since January and since the draft is around the corner was hoping that it may come to Europe.


Leo-DarkSide 25 April, 2012 @ 2:36 pm   85

Any more PSP games coming our way? Would love to see Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles released on PSN! As well as Tales of Eternia too!!!

Retro_1973 25 April, 2012 @ 2:36 pm   86

I got a voucher code inside Prototype 2 yesterday for a HOME avatar but when I try to redeem it in the store it says the code is currently invalid?! Any idea when the code will go live? Thanks 🙂

bennyrafal 25 April, 2012 @ 2:39 pm   87

is thera any chance for PSOne Classics: Ufo Enemy Unknown and Ufo: Terror from the Deep ?

adumr82 25 April, 2012 @ 2:40 pm   88

Catkiller, Tax in the us is zero in some states but tax in the country is 20%. can’t blame Sony for that, but would have been nice to have a plus discount.

DarK_Adam_ka 25 April, 2012 @ 2:49 pm   92

Seriously, those won’t haven’t bought the God of War games yet, I don’t think this little sale will be for them. Why put games on sale that have been available for years…

Silver-Seraphim 25 April, 2012 @ 2:50 pm   94

Hey Jawad,

Are we going to get Odin Sphere, Darkstalkers or Darkstalkers 3 on PSN as the US have had Odin Sphere and Darkstalkers for months and got Darkstalkers 3 yesterday.

Any news on dates for the EU? even if its just a coming soon

windsorblue01 25 April, 2012 @ 2:51 pm   95

@Erendel your asking in the wrong place ask in the plus update post that was put on yesterday

AaronSOLDIER 25 April, 2012 @ 2:52 pm   96

I’ll get GoWC Vol. II


Still waiting for PS1 playback on the Vita, what of the major reasons for my purchase, and one of the advertised features, and said to be “Soon” after launch.

What is the hold up?

EccentricJon 25 April, 2012 @ 2:56 pm   98

Hey Jawad.
I don’t suppose you have any idea about the Purle Knight (Blacksmith) for Castle Crashers on PSN EU do you?
I can’t find any details anywhere.
Many Thanks.

EccentricJon 25 April, 2012 @ 2:57 pm   99

yopdeano 25 April, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   101

haha y did nhl 12 go up in price whos going 2 pay 57.99 for it lol

DaftMav 25 April, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   102

Telltale: USD $19.99 (copy) to EUR €19.99 (paste), is actually making it 32% more expensive! (€19.99 = $26,40) when it probably should have been about €15. /nothxbye

taurus82 25 April, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   103

The Walking Dead Trial and Dragon’s Dogma Demo for me this week, I might buy Bejeweled 3 if there’s a Plus discount.

Why is there only a video of the KARA tech demo?

undeadwolfy 25 April, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   104

Hey Jawad, I’m confused.

It says for the God of War PSP games the new price is:

God of War: Chains of Olympus (£10.99, €13.99, AU$21.95)
God of War: Ghost of Sparta (£10.99, €13.99, AU$21.95)

Im looking at the prices of these games in the store right now on my Vita, and it says they are £6.99 each.

What’s up with that?

EccentricJon 25 April, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   105

Is the Playstation Plus Store Update coming later again?

ringo1 25 April, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   106

Yet another good update, Walking dead for me i think. Still no word on PSOne classic support then. Also will the eu store ever get either of the Silent Hill PSP games ?

Erorrless 25 April, 2012 @ 3:13 pm   107

really excited for dragon’s dogma!

European_Gamer 25 April, 2012 @ 3:16 pm   110

Do you know why Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention isn’t releasing in Denmark?
Square Enix should know that they don’t need to localize the game to anything other then English for Danes to be able to understand it.

shotgun_69 25 April, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   111

Any word on the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 avatars, maybe as a promotion for the avengers coming out or something like that…

dgnfly 25 April, 2012 @ 3:18 pm   112


when are we in the netherlands getting the disgaea 4 avatars?
and same goes fo chopliftr HD?

the americans ae just lauging their ass off at these horrible update’s

supersmith2500 25 April, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   113

Thanks for providing the FAQ Jawad. Hope it will keep the complaining down. Also Jawad one question, when is Konami, Capcom, SEGA and any other decent going to release their games for PS1 and PS2 Classics?
Because the Classics range is getting beyond a complete joke and only THQ, Disney (just releasing crap games instead of good ones) and that company I seriously hate Midas Games releasing those games.

Seriously, Midas needs to back off. I get annoyed all the time now because most of their games are poor, awful and even horrible.

kivi95 25 April, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   114

101# It’s the ps3 HD versions 😉

adumr82 25 April, 2012 @ 3:26 pm   115

@eccentricjon there is no plus update today. plus content comes once a month in eu. anything extra is a treat. I don’t know why people struggle so much to understand his. next content is may 2nd.

Shadowdragoon 25 April, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   116

1. Why are Disgaea and Hyperdimension DLC not available in Scandinavian territories?
A. This was sadly a decision the publisher has made. At this time it doesn’t seem likely DLC will be available in the region.
Why do SCEE allow this? SCEE should tell the company that either release it to the whole of EU or to not release at all..

Same with the Disgaea 3 why not in Scandinavia, we do bloody read English quite well. So no translation needed.

Second, Crossregion gifting arives when? 😉 Pretty sure most here agrees that its a needed feature. And pretty sure people get why I keep asking for it, seeing my previous points..

Catkiller1 25 April, 2012 @ 3:29 pm   117

@ adumr82

Thanks for clearing that up, although I never put the blame on SONY for tax related issues, I merley stated to not bother with the Tax speel!

Even if the Tax issue was there, the price conversions are still way off!

I wonder when Closure & Arcade Pinball will finally arrive! It was already mentioned that The Legend Of Dragoon will be months before it arrives within the EU, so i’ll just purchase it next week 😉

Artemisthemp 25 April, 2012 @ 3:32 pm   118

1. Why are Disgaea and Hyperdimension DLC not available in Scandinavian territories?
A. This was sadly a decision the publisher has made. At this time it doesn’t seem likely DLC will be available in the region.

I am not a expert, but I am pretty sure NIS would like to have the Avatar, DLC and Disgaea 3 avaliable on Scandinavian + Polish PSN, but I hear there is a issue with Sony require the Documentation for getting the Avatar, DLC and Disgaea 3 to be translate into that country languages example Danish.

Now shall I not make my self a expert on other country’s in Scandinavia or Polen, but I am pretty sure that all 16 year old understand English pretty well and add up the fact that Disgaea 3 and HDN MK-2 only have 2 languages option 1. English or 2. Japanese (at less US version), so I kinda don’t understand, why Sony would require the documentation to be in Danish (Example).

DrClayman 25 April, 2012 @ 3:39 pm   119

Hey guys, is there any chance of ever seeing a PSN release for “24 – The Game” as a PS2 classic? I know it never got great reviews, but as a big fan of the series, I’d like to get to play it at some point. Cheers!

Highfoot 25 April, 2012 @ 3:40 pm   120

No Disagea 3 for my Vita? Why no digital release in sweden? Come on!

RareHero 25 April, 2012 @ 3:43 pm   121

Really disappointed that we’re still lacking the final pieces of content for the Ridge Racer (Vita) Gold Pass. What’s worse is that the first Silver Pass course has been released on both the JP and US store now so we’re basically two courses behind. This is especially frustrating as the game is basically online only and we are getting locked out of lobbies that use this courses.

Are Bandai Namco even aware that some of the Gold Pass content hasn’t yet been submitted to the EU store? As I mentioned last week, the Gold Pass description says the content will be released by 31st March.

windsorblue01 25 April, 2012 @ 3:44 pm   122

@EccentricJon plus update post was put up yesterday it starts may 2nd you dont get a plus update every week

byazid 25 April, 2012 @ 3:48 pm   124

What about a patch for the disc version of Everybody’s Golf for 3D and Move support?

Artemisthemp 25 April, 2012 @ 3:50 pm   125

@Xaluku You can already get a English Gravity Rush Demo from Hong Kong, but sadly require you to factory reset the system to logon a Hong Kong PSN and download Gravity Rush

taurus82 25 April, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   126

Why do you keep ignoring questions regarding Auditorium HD?
Has it been stuck in QA for almost 2 years, does it even have a EU publisher?
Even weirder is CipherPrime (the developer) isn’t saying anything either, what’s going on?

DaftMav 25 April, 2012 @ 3:56 pm   127

@byazid #120: Everybody’s Golf should have already gotten the 3D & Move patch in february/march, see:

DaftMav 25 April, 2012 @ 3:58 pm   128

doh stupid spacing additions always here, copy/paste and remove the space in ‘Pa tch’…

HazelAM 25 April, 2012 @ 4:00 pm   129

so you know what the full game trials are now?

well vaguely anyway it looks like, i don’t think they’ve ever been referred to as time trials.

anyway, when you’re taking ads for a game could you pay attention to what’s in them.
you know, maybe change the colour of the text so it stands out rather than vanishing.
you can have ads, but make sure they doesn’t render the store unusable

white text on a white background?

does nobody check these things?

byazid 25 April, 2012 @ 4:02 pm   130

@DaftMav #123: Thanks FaftMav. Indeed, The patch is not downloaded when we launch the game. We must go to the online section of the game (strange procedure).

Universquall 25 April, 2012 @ 4:03 pm   131

The Rainbow Six collection says 4 games. But then in the description it only lists R6 (PSOne) and Vegas 1 and 2. What is the fourth? Thanks.

Scuffy_P 25 April, 2012 @ 4:04 pm   132

TWO game trailers…wow. Considering Prototype 2 was released yesterday, I’m stunned. EVERY gaming website on the planet has a far greater selection of trailers than PSN, and more up-to-date. No doubt you guys will publish the numerous Prototype 2 trailers in a couple of months as usual.

And please…PLEASE stop with all the rubbish dynamic themes (windmills, waterfalls, flowers, trees…it’s a joke). Check the sales numbers, no one buys these terrible themes. The PS3 is a game console for Heavens sake, commission game related dynamic themes. Microsoft have dozens upon dozens of game themes available for nearly all current games. PSN? A poorly animated theme of a motorway.

I pray to God that PSN is handled internally next gen, rather than outsourcing everything. I bet SCEE don’t even know what a mess the PSN store is in right now.

Amy_Belgium 25 April, 2012 @ 4:07 pm   133

I just had a look on the store on my Vita and the 3rd track and 5th car are there. They are dated as being released last week … I don’t know why/how because they definitely were not there last week.

Just goes to show that content mysteriously appears on the store without Jawad’s knowledge as he answered post 16’s question about it with “I’ve been assured that it will” instead of “It’s already available on the store”.

EccentricJon 25 April, 2012 @ 4:26 pm   138

That’s the entirety of this week’s Playstation Plus Update?
It’s just getting worse and worse. This month has been atrocious.

Barman136 25 April, 2012 @ 4:31 pm   139

About NISA games:
“This was sadly a decision the publisher has made. At this time it doesn’t seem likely DLC will be available in the region.”

Asked from the publisher, and the issue is that Sony now requires local language descriptions for all titles and NISA doesn’t have translators for the scandinavian languages and Polish.

I don’t want my Swedish accounts PSN store to turn swedish. Gaming language for me is english and I want english content no matter which country I’m living in. With EU you have free movement of work force, and you might move to country which language you don’t know so well, so having the option to choose an english language store would be extremely welcome.

XR-NOFEAR17 25 April, 2012 @ 4:37 pm   140

Icet-44 25 April, 2012 @ 4:45 pm   142

Yay! A PSone game! Although it isn’t one i really care for… Any news on the Spyro Trilogy? (Especially the 2nd two)

Azerach 25 April, 2012 @ 4:46 pm   143

Why wont Sony handle the translating? Sounds dumb as hell if it really depends on translating some document.

MP_is_for_Chumps 25 April, 2012 @ 4:48 pm   144

Thank you for the GoW sale.

Please can we also have more GoW avatars on the store. thanx

Bladesteel 25 April, 2012 @ 4:48 pm   145


Could you verify the info about the problem with NIS content in scandinavia is due to a requirement that documentation has to be in english? (Or confirm or deny if there is such a requirement if you can’t give us the publishers reason)

If this is the case I find it very strange. The game itself is in english so lack of translated documentation shouldn’t be an issue for the player. If we’re talking about documentation for support staff; if they have no people that can read english then they really should look at their hiring process. All younger norwegians that didn’t flunk school know english, i find it hard to believe support is staffed only by old people or school dropouts. Also they should have english speakers anyway to provide support for immigrants that speak english.

So I bought the PS2 Classic Dirt Track Devils and wow, it looks like a PS1 game, I’m not exaggerating wither, even Gran Turismo 1 had better graphics lol

Ok deal for £1.99, was mainly just checking out PS2 Classics compatibility, bit disappointed it signs you out of PSN like when you play them off a disc on the PS3 though, hope they can fix that since they’re running from HDD they should be able to rework the system a little bit. Then again we’re STILL waiting for ingame XMB for PS1 games…

AaronSOLDIER 25 April, 2012 @ 4:53 pm   147

Also, not sure what’s up with the thumbnail after installing it, shouldn’t it have a ‘PlayStation 2’ above the header? There’s a big blue line down the cover… SCEE can’t even get the thumbnails of games right…

RareHero 25 April, 2012 @ 4:55 pm   148


Thanks for the update. The car and course is there as you said.

We’re still missing the Long Mix BGM 01 medley pack though.

Artemisthemp 25 April, 2012 @ 4:56 pm   149

@XR-NOFEAR17 First we need the issue resolve with NIS Avatar not been avaliable in Scandinavia + Polen, then we can look on getting it released

Shikishima 25 April, 2012 @ 5:01 pm   150

This update confirms that NISA does not allow publishing of their games in Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Poland.

I wonder what their reasons for this decision are.

I sincerely doubt translation issues are the cause, very few games have Norwegian translations for example.
If there are any requirements to translate manuals or on screen text then I assume this is a SCEE approval issue.

I’ve previously bought most of their releases on the PS2 and PS3.
I even considered buying a PS VITA with Disgaea 3 but now this is not possible.

Needless to say I’m quite upset with NISA/KOEI with regards to this decision.

Can we expect to continue to be excluded from their releases in the future?

Artemisthemp 25 April, 2012 @ 5:06 pm   151

@Shikishima I have Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention to PS VITA (US version), so it is posible to get it 😛 (just need retail).

The reason is the Documentation or at less that’s what I get told, when I bring up the matters on NISA forum (Sadly no word from a Official NISA forum guy)

dirtyCAT79 25 April, 2012 @ 5:08 pm   152

Motorstorm is back. Yessss!

Still – it’s a little pathetic that I am excited about PSP titles on my Vita. You would have thought I could be excited about some games designed for this system.

HiTmAn_pT 25 April, 2012 @ 5:14 pm   153

I have a request to make Jawad Ashraf… Can you guys please put Final Fantasy Tactics (US Version) on our store? Since you did it with RE 2 and 3, i would love to see FFT on the store too. Please man, see what you can do about it. 🙂

RemyX-1988 25 April, 2012 @ 5:38 pm   154

Fist of all, let me please tell you how happy I am that the Dynasty Warriors/Warriors Orochi DLC and avatars have been released here today! I’m a big fan of those games, and I was under the impression we would have to wait long for the avatars, at least. Luckily, I was mistaken!

But also, I am very weirded out about a number of things. The first one is the price difference between the North American and European pricing for Everybody’s Golf/Hot Shots Golf. Why do we pay more? Is it different content? If not, it’s unreasonable for you guys to charge more for us. Remember, my country is facing a financial crisis!

Also, even with the release of Skullgirls nearing, it’s still sad to see that the game has not been released this week. We’re a few weeks behind now!

Another thing is about the PS2 Classic “Eternal Quest.” Is there a specific reason it was not released on the Dutch PlayStation Store, among others? I have never heard of this title before, and even though I have 500 original PS2 titles, this seems to be the first and for now, only PS2 Classic I would be interested in.

And lastly… is there any word on Free Realms for the Netherlands? It’s been months now, and we haven’t heard a thing! :'(

PREYDRAGON 25 April, 2012 @ 5:47 pm   155

Do any of you at sony know anything about bringing ‘Spyro’ and ‘Yugioh’ games to PSN?

Onna76_NL 25 April, 2012 @ 5:52 pm   156

Everybody’s Golf World Tour Complete Edition? Since when was that announced *hah*? Does this game include trophies, since the original didn’t have any. Where you can post questions about Music Unlimited? From several, make that a lot of artists albums are missing and I want to ask why and if that’ll be updated… Can’t find any contact info on the Music Unlimited site.


Onna76_NL 25 April, 2012 @ 5:55 pm   157

@Daftmav, hey Atilla, thanks for the Everybody’s Golf info, no need to download this package then 🙂

sakulukk 25 April, 2012 @ 5:57 pm   158


Problem is, why should we have to import US Version or any other EU version when we already live in Europe ~_~.

Either release it everywhere or don’t treat some of your costumers better than others. Thanks to your policys I am really regreting buying PS3 and VITA altogether ~_~.

SolidSan75 25 April, 2012 @ 6:03 pm   159

walking dead problems here!! Game will not install on PS3!!! Bought the season pass. Help

CassyChan 25 April, 2012 @ 6:07 pm   160

As a heads up for the Ultimate Ninja DLC for Ninja Gaiden 3 it really isn’t worth bothering… it’s impossible to play because of constant slowdown, no inputs will consistently register properly and this issue is frequent in day 1, so I imagine it gets much worse at other points in the game. Really terrible, no wonder it’s free, it’s unplayable crap.

Artemisthemp 25 April, 2012 @ 6:09 pm   161

@sakulukk (153)
Pre-order Bonus for NISA games are only available on NISA Store and all those games are US version. (Same applies to Special Editions).

@SolidSan75 (154)
Walking Dead is split in files
1. Demo of Walking Dead Episode 1
2. Unlock Key

Did you download both?

procion 25 April, 2012 @ 6:18 pm   162

FULL kudos to KAP in comment number 1 for starting off us with this weeks commentaries by a CAPPED FINALY. SCEEyou need to put a not up asking childish people not to post their selfish me-me FIRST when they get in, or think they get in before the rest of the grown ups, just like SCEA do on their blog.
Happy to see Journey lbp2 costume finally arrived instore. Well now I knlw what is what herein, Im orf for a precious few hours sleep before PROTOTYPE2 Blackwatch edition gets delivered to my door in four hours time. Thanks Jawad and the team.

koma1tose 25 April, 2012 @ 6:32 pm   163

i always see people asking for new avatars bit ive never seen someone complain about the firmware that took the ability to make your own .i remember in 2.something firmware i was able with my ps3 to save a image and use it as an took that feature away because people were always asking sony to sell them avatars ,lol.

maddymad 25 April, 2012 @ 6:44 pm   164

Would you mind clarify one thing for me? Is God of War collection volume 2 multilingual such as PAL retail version? Thanks in advance.

dgnfly 25 April, 2012 @ 6:46 pm   165


it is bcause off translation reason i should know i asked em.
but they won’t even let us translate 2 our native language’s that i kinda think is lame.

pmfreitas22 25 April, 2012 @ 6:47 pm   166

Good afternoon, i would love to see Final Fantasy Tactics ( US version – PSX ) available @ our PS store ( Europe ).
Best regards.

jadehare 25 April, 2012 @ 6:52 pm   167

Does NBG america decide which updates Ridge Racer Vita get. crushed my hopes of catching up. guess it’s too expensive / hard for them to release during the same time frame, in effect damaging the Ridge Racer brand. i’m missing Long Mix BGM.
who holds back wake up club & pinball arcade? hope they feel proud of themselves =)

MvC3 avatars are tricky because they involve Marvel. Other (Capcom) avatars are definitely planned and hopefully submitted over the coming weeks.

sp where are capcoms OKAMI avatars and sengoku basara how about you guys get some avatars form SCEJ. instad off just waiting fo publishers 2 step 2 you guys how about you guys actually do some work.

seanoc1 25 April, 2012 @ 7:02 pm   169

If you are taking requests for PS2 classics, then please pass along the Timeplitters series. I’m sure Square Enix could use the money and I doubt EA will say no to the chance for some easy cash. Just don’t try and rip us off with massive prices and they’ll get plenty of downloads.

koma1tose 25 April, 2012 @ 7:03 pm   170

i will pay for an avatar!never ! instead of asking sony to sell you avatars ,tell them to give back the ability to make your own like before .

jozhster 25 April, 2012 @ 7:04 pm   171

thanks for re releasing feeding frenzy 2 jawad, much appreciated keep up the great work!!!!

dgnfly 25 April, 2012 @ 7:08 pm   172


they always say that look how many ppl requested castlevania for ps1 back in 2007 and they still ain’t here. not 2 mention the other ps1 games.

SpeedyRyan-_- 25 April, 2012 @ 7:31 pm   173

Hello Jawad, not sure if you will see this comment as i’m a bit late. Did you know that the buzz light year ps one game is on the vita store in the psp section. Has anyone else noticed this?

socoenpo 25 April, 2012 @ 7:35 pm   174

Still no “The Pinball Arcade” and the Bejeweled 3 only 27th (why?) ???
Sony, Sony, you gone bad to worse… 🙁

chrisandsheva 25 April, 2012 @ 7:40 pm   175

@ Jawad.. can you comment on my post number50… As it IS a valid request that Needs to be addressed..Also IF you do per-chance bother replying i would Really like to know (a) Do you think it should of been moderated for x hours, (b) Why Was it, i ask this as i ‘truly’ believe i am being victimised by either a moderator, or moderators in general… a quick example, 20 of my posts over last 2-3 months modded, 0 posts deleted/censered.. No links in Any of them either… Sometimes they ‘appear’ 2 hours later.. sometimes its longer.. 1 actually taking 36 hours.. but only after asking James a similar thing as i’m asking now.. Obviously it kinda Stops any chance of getting involved/into a (sometimes) interesting debate with other blog users, which Was once a Big part of my (good) psn xp.. thnx.

mike20036 25 April, 2012 @ 7:42 pm   176

I love the sonic avatars 🙂


Just played The Walking Dead demo. It was ok but the light effects were very poorly done as were the expressions on the faces. It´s a no buy for me.

Bovrillor 25 April, 2012 @ 7:52 pm   178

Jawad, a few questions if you have the time…

1) I bought Phantasy Star Portable 2 (PSP) some time ago, it’s now been removed from the store and my download list. Can I at least get a refund?

2) I bought the Episodes From Liberty City Standalone, then bought the GTAIV Blu-Ray at a later date. Any chance of the DLC Episodes being unlocked for people in the same situation? It sucks having the same data installed twice on my PS3 when I could just have the DLC data instead.

3) Any chance we’ll ever see discounts on DLC for Arkham City (ie Robin/Nightwing) or Fallout:New Vegas (which now has a GOTY edition on every other platform, as well as every other network offering them at sale price while we get no discount, ever.)

@Izorpo, post #49 – ever heard of VAT?

d1capo 25 April, 2012 @ 8:21 pm   179

Im gonna try the walking dead demo and if I like it I’ll get the pass. Someone a nice review somewhere?

Mithos-SWE 25 April, 2012 @ 8:31 pm   180

A question not related to this release list. I prolonged my PS+ subscription today (would have ended 6/8/2012, now its ending 6/8/2013.

However every freebie that I have gotten so far still say expires 6/8/2012, and its should have been prolonged also I presume.

Any tip/help/info on this?

ilikethispart 25 April, 2012 @ 8:37 pm   181

Any chance of getting the Disgaea 4 avatars in the portuguese store? There’s even a folder for them, but there’s nothing inside it.

futsio 25 April, 2012 @ 8:39 pm   182

good update. love everybodys golf, but expected trophy support at that price.
Excellent work on the skype app. works like a dream.
Any news on uk netflix for vita yet jawad?

Skydancerx 25 April, 2012 @ 8:41 pm   183

Any change to get Invizimals on the Store and be Vita Compatible?

supersmith2500 25 April, 2012 @ 8:47 pm   184

*sigh* Bet £10 that every single Midas game is going be on PS2 Classics. Actually change the name PS2 Classics to Midas Classics. I’ll just stick to playing on my real PS2.

proxystar 25 April, 2012 @ 8:58 pm   185

Oh cool, look at all the avatars not available in New Zealand… no surprises there, although I have a sneaking suspicion it’s because the distributors of those particular titles are too cheap to put their avatars through the censorship system because they consider our market too small.

Darkliquid 25 April, 2012 @ 9:26 pm   186

Looking forward to picking up The Walking Dead game just can’t decide if I should buy the season pass or just go for ep1 for now. Was hoping that there was going to be a PS+ discount on it but unfortunatly not.

Nice to see the Kara tech demo on the store. Was hoping that would appear sometime so thanks for that.

scally6 25 April, 2012 @ 9:54 pm   187

You have to goto your download list,pick your plus games, hit download, once it has activated, cancel the download, the expiry date will have changed. Its a pain, but it’s the only way to do it.Hope that helps

Axoloth 25 April, 2012 @ 10:46 pm   188

Soooo, is the fact that I can buy (and presumably download) Buzz Lightyear of Star Command on my PS Vita an indication that PSOne classics in general will soon be playable on Vita?

Scubafinch 25 April, 2012 @ 11:11 pm   189

Any news on Pinball Arcade? The US store will have had it for 3+ weeks before we get it. The closer it drops to the amalgamation of Zen and Marvel pinball across PS3 and Vita (May?), the more likely it is to have it’s sales hurt.

Licensing and localisation issues perhaps? A little bit of communication couldn’t hurt.

TINTINTB303 26 April, 2012 @ 12:21 am   190

@ Mithos-SWE

They say expired but if you play them you should have no problems. After playing a game if you check the status again it should have your new subscription expiry date in place. It’s no biggie I noticed the same but all games worked fine even though they say expired. Hope that helps.

“Why is there only a video of the KARA tech demo?”

Is that a joke or are you being serious?!?
Do you actually understand what a tech demo is? What out of interest are you expecting apart from the video?

You gave me a good laugh though so cheers for that!

Stud_Kick_Ass 26 April, 2012 @ 1:51 am   192

Hello Jawad, two things.

God of War: Chains of Olympus (£10.99, €13.99, AU$21.95)
God of War: Ghost of Sparta (£10.99, €13.99, AU$21.95)

The games are normally $11.95 in Australia, how come they’re an extra $10 when they’re on sale?

Number 2, Trails of Montezuma Blitz still isn’t on the Australian Store.
Could you please look into this?

Mithos-SWE 26 April, 2012 @ 1:57 am   193


Yeah, tried that quite early on, but it didn’t update, however the dates updated as soon as I did start a download of the same game again but cancelled the download, so it’s all good now.

flashfumoLIVE 26 April, 2012 @ 2:04 am   194

This update is kinda meh.
But yay Sonic avatars.

Would love to see the videos from the ps3 available on the vita store. especially access. I don’t care if the aspect is slightly wrong, I can watch them if I use remote play but don’t get why can’t just download them straight off.

taurus82 26 April, 2012 @ 9:36 am   201


“Do you actually understand what a tech demo is?”

I visit regularly, so yes I know what a tech demo is?

“What out of interest are you expecting apart from the video?”

Err… the actual tech demo that would have run in real-time on our own PS3s and not simply a capture.

Catkiller1 26 April, 2012 @ 10:05 am   202

Just wanted to know if Walking Dead Episodes 2-5 will release individually for £3.99? Only asking as Sam & Max, Strong Bad etc only had Episode 1 then the Season Pass. If they release individually then that’s fine, i’ll just purchase them on a monthly basis, as I don’t want to take a big chunk out of my wallet & £3.99 a month is better for me!

Also World Gone Sour is great. If anyone purchases it or owns it, sit back & watch the title screen for 5 minutes as there are some funny scenes 😉

sasukeluffy 26 April, 2012 @ 11:40 am   203

Nice update! I already downloaded Dragons Dogma and Ninja Gaiden demos, and this weekend ill buy GoW Collection 1 and Chains of Olympus and AC: B DLC. Sad that VITA doesnt have ps1 support yet :/ But i really loved Skype and Paint Park! 🙂

I bought the GoW collection Vol 2 the day before the price dropped. Not happy.

extralife_psx 26 April, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   206

looks like this is the right time to grab GOW vol2, to complete my collection 🙂 and a demo of dragons dogma, that game looks pretty interesting.

on a sidenote i’m quite surprised that none have asked for r-types and the awesome heart of darkness for the ps1 and how about r-type final for the ps2 classics, stuff for u to look into m8 🙂

Catkiller1 26 April, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   207

Looks like more PSN releases are starting to release on retail compilations!

Worms Collection + 6 DLC Packs. If it’s the Armageddon packs then i’ll purchase it. I own all digital titles, but the DLC for Armageddon costs around £25 anyway!

Alien breed Trilogy is releasing soon, Bejewelled 3 with Feeding Frenzy 2 & Zuma tomorrow, Doctor Who The Eternity Clock for £17.99: Back To The Future, Ferrari Challenge & Super Car Challenge Collection, Puma after Hours Athletes, Move Mind Benders, Monkey Island Special Edition Collection. I’m sure there’s many more to come! 😉

Catkiller1 26 April, 2012 @ 2:05 pm   208

@ extralife_psx

The US Store has R-Types & R-Type Delta & some Turbografx 16 games, that are cheap!

hayzink 26 April, 2012 @ 2:07 pm   209

as much as i love the walking dead i think ill be waiting for it to be in a half price sale.

so far i have bought tales of monkey island, bttftg,strong bad all of which were half price within about 6-7 months of launch and i would not pay full price for there stuff now as historically it has always ended up discounted by alot.

@taurus82 You still haven’t answered my initial question. What were you expecting apart from a video?? They can only show us the demo via a video anyway. I understand what you mean but what else are you wanting from them?

taurus82 26 April, 2012 @ 4:15 pm   211

Sometimes when someone uses ‘only’ in a sentence, it suggests that what has been given is of a lesser quality.
In this case it is a KARA video (lesser quality) rather than the real-time demo (greater quality).

CoolRichy008UK 26 April, 2012 @ 7:42 pm   215

ChairyBoyArmy 27 April, 2012 @ 12:26 am   216

To all , Any news on Warriors good or bad ? Warriors plz commma out to plllllayyyyy

Catkiller1 27 April, 2012 @ 10:51 am   217

I too, would like to see a release of The Warriors PS2. Also Canis Canem Edit, Frequency, Amplitude, Parappa The Rapper 2, Freedom Fighters, Rogue Galaxy & the Retro Collections Midway Arcade Treasures 1-3, Taito Legends 1 & 2, Capcom Classics Volumes 1 & 2, SNK Arcade Classics Volume 1, Atari Anthology, Activision Anthology to name a few 😉 Too many Classics to name. The current releases are a complete shambles & shouldn’t have the luxury of being released, as ‘Classics’. Out of the many PS2 releases, there are only roughly 10, that I would consider ‘Classics’.

Stonesthrow 27 April, 2012 @ 11:54 am   218

Nada, but atleast I finally got that brilliant Kara trailer to view on ps3.

Stonesthrow 27 April, 2012 @ 11:59 am   219

@215 Don’t count on it, localization is a more complicated matter for Europe than for the Americas.

People should stop comparing with the American store and content.

adumr82 27 April, 2012 @ 7:16 pm   220

People shouldnt stop comparing. The bottom line is, if Microsoft can get it right, why can’t Sony?

TINTINTB303 27 April, 2012 @ 8:48 pm   221

@ taurus82

Fair enough. I suppose they could have offered a 1080p version as well as the 720p and SD versions that are available to download. In my opinion the video does get the whole feel of the original tech demo across so does what it sets out to do.
I think if Quantic Dream and David Cage were really not happy with it then they would have made Sony offer a full 1080p version…?
I still don’t get what you want from them though?!?!

stikky1 27 April, 2012 @ 10:24 pm   222

Hi Jawad, i know this is a bit off topic but i cannot find “new weapon pack 3” for Dynasty Warriors 7. Has it been taken down? Did you no it was missing & will it be put back on.
Thanks David

Seem Sony wasn’t totally honors about, why DLC wasn’t avaliable in Scandinavia and Polen

Darlo-Richie 29 April, 2012 @ 7:46 am   225

Reading more into that situation regarding NIS DLC, it seems that SCEE have added more red tape to the release process which may well be the reason why our content is coming out later than ever!

The question is why? I’ve met many Scandinavions in my time and most of them (especially in gaming circles) speak and read english very well, I’d also include the Dutch in this topic as well, having lived in Holland myself!

Whats the point of making it compulsory to translate PSN descriptions into those languages now when its not really neccessary in the first place?!

dgnfly 29 April, 2012 @ 9:43 am   226


i’s cause SCEE is mentaly retarded cause all games are english so it alrdy makes no sense. unless SCEE is gonna demand all games need 2 be native language for each country. this is another reason SCEE is ueless and th wors service’s off all regions even Xbox have a brain.

Darlo-Richie 29 April, 2012 @ 10:22 am   227

@dgnfly, great to hear from you again!

It seems silly to me to add this requirement when very few would complain about it, the Germans and the French would but they always get the translations because their languages are well supported, the Scandinavion languages are not and to some degree neither is the Dutch language.

These areas are in danger of missing out on content simply because they’re bilingual and not considered essential to translate for by smaller publishers, SCEE need to revise this NOW!

Darlo-Richie 29 April, 2012 @ 10:24 am   228

Typo by me its Scandinavian not Scandinavion, sorry about that!

Skookie30 29 April, 2012 @ 11:11 am   229

I always knew SCEE was backwand but that topic i’m not really surprise.

so another layer to slow our content down, licensing & localisation tripe & Red tape.

360 are not sony but their still go though process like any other company does to push out content MS just does it better.

sakulukk 29 April, 2012 @ 11:37 am   230

Polish store was in English since forever, and it’s still is with some exceptions.

TBH I’d rather not see it translated to Polish as I think that those who do it… do it very poorly! ~_~

SickMick_UK 29 April, 2012 @ 4:39 pm   231

Jawad do you know when the Harley Quinn Batman:AC DLC is releasing and price I heard that it £9.99?

dgnfly 29 April, 2012 @ 7:34 pm   232

@Darlo-Richie you’d hear from me everyweek if ya check the blog

it’s just stupid logic that SCEE can’t get anything done. language shoulden’t be a barrier with almost everything in the world in english. but SCEE always comes up with some stupid excuse no wonder publishes don’t wanna come 2 SCEE wih their redtape way off doing things. hy getting a bigge and bigge backloggd list off games we will never see and content that’ll never arriv cause they just wait for publishes 2 contanct them it’s just laziness.
like when SCEE said they contact NISamerica with those avatars yet when we asked them thy said they never head off SCEE.


I think its appalling that a games company and the psn store won’t allow some European customers to download content just because regulations have been put in place and something must be in their native tongue

most of continental Europe and Scandinavia are bi-lingual or multi-lingual – sometimes their country may have up to 3 or 4 languages spoken in it (such as Luxembourg or Switzerland) and thats on top of speaking English fluently and to be honest a lot better than some native speakers of English

…so as they are willing to play a game in English and its actually released in their country in English then why can’t they purchase the dlc in English- which to them is better than not having it at all

NIS stating not buying their games isn’t helping the matter, well neither is not supplying a group of customers content that is available elsewhere in Europe or the world

Hi Jawad

When RE4 HD was announced in Europe,Sony promised free avatars for those of us who bought the game. Some weeks ago those avatars finally appeared in the store and aren´t free for those of us that bought RE4 HD.Are we ever going to get them for free or even we who bought the game,have to pay for them?

Also do you think it’s possible to get the Deus Ex: Human Revolution dynamic theme that SCEA has? Enjoyed the game a lot so would really like to have that theme avaiable for purchase.
