‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 6th June 2012

Greetings, greetings!

With E3 going on this week things have been super busy for us here at SCEE. I’m sure many of have been keeping up to date through our blog or other means but let’s not forget the usual store update.

PlayStation Plus users, if you haven’t seen so already, do check out Ross’s post here  on the changes and what new content you can expect. You’ll get awesome games such as Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, inFAMOUS2 and LittleBigPlanet 2. Definitely not something you want to miss out on.

Available on PlayStation Store today, you can get your hands on Sega’s Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown at either a base game level, or Complete Edition which includes character customisations.

We’ve also got FIFA 12 and UEFA EURO 2012 available as a bundle for you to enjoy, Shellshock Nam ’67 as a new PS2 title and of course various DLC pieces for titles such as Dragon’s Dogma and Test Drive Unlimited 2.

There’s also a host of new trailers going up today and throughout the week for titles shown at E3, so keep an eye on PlayStation Store for those.

When will The Pinball Arcade be available in Europe??

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:43

I never got my response believe it or not :(.I will keep hounding for it though.


What happened with the Vita at E3? I was disappointed.

S-o-h-a-i-l 06 June, 2012 @ 14:16

Could you please ask Ross if it would be possible to add in Ratchet and Clank or Lara Craft like the American Playstation Plus users received for free ?

Also is there any chance of seeing a Beyond Good and Evil HD discount on the store ?

ElectricRoses 06 June, 2012 @ 14:16

Great week for me this week, really been looking forward to VF:Final Showdown, as well as the SFxTekken and SCV DLC. Also DW7 costumes I didn’t know about, going to have to check those out too!

MonsterRacer 06 June, 2012 @ 14:16

Where is the PS Vita Content, will you do a saperate update for this?

After the E3 press conference we could expect a good update.

This is very poor!!!


€25 for Virtua Fighter 5 ?? In the US they got it for like $15 ?!

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:45

For the Complete Edition?

EternalChaos72 06 June, 2012 @ 14:17

the avatar section is missin!!

Nightmare966 06 June, 2012 @ 14:18

I understand you guys are busy, but really, seeing the post so empty on the various items made me laugh pretty hard :P

So, you guys are getting a new suscriber and fighting games DLC for me this week. Plus trailers :D

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:46

I kinda laughed myself, actually.

Hey jawad

Little request can we have file sizes on the store content? For example the Vita/PSP games in the US store all have file sizes labeled either on the title or in the discription why can’t the same be done here? Its a very handy thing to have more so on full bluray titles

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:47

I put them in for full games almost all the time. Almost. There are certain times, like today when it doesn’t happen, though.

No Pinball Arcade?

(but no complaints since there is so much Plus-content this week!)

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:48

See comment #1. Sorry.

SoundableObject 06 June, 2012 @ 14:18

Vita :(

Nice update heard anything about suikoden on PS1 classics

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:49

Nah, not yet. I’m going to have to grab Ross (after E3) on this one.

didn’t expect a strong store update this week except for plus but i have two questions

1. details when Tokyo Jungle is finally coming

2. the Borderlands doomsday trailer in e3 section keeps coming up as corrupted data whenever I download it, not having this problem with other videos – will there be a fix for this soon?

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:52

1. Please wait for further news on this one.

2. I’ve queried the ops team if they know of this issue.

Chapel-Bill 06 June, 2012 @ 14:19

Please!!! We need an update about The Pinball Arcade and why we are already waiting 8 weeks without a single update on why it isn’t being released in Europe.

Where is Pinball arcade and Zen Pinball 2?

chrisredfield_97 06 June, 2012 @ 14:21

hey jaward where are the assassin’s creed III avatars and yeah we would expect a better update after e3 so please can you tell me about the ACIII avatars? please

RagingAvatar 06 June, 2012 @ 14:21

Is there any way of being able to upgrade my free PS Plus version of Virtua Fighter 5 to the full experience (£19.99) version without dropping the whole £19.99?
Well done on E3 btw :)

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 15:12

Standard edition . DLC is available separately if you want it.

pinkplaybunny 06 June, 2012 @ 14:21

No walking dead again? US got it last week!!

FrozenPepper 06 June, 2012 @ 14:21

Still no word on The Pinball Arcade… Every week I get my hopes up, only to be utterly disappointed. It’s been 2 months now since the release in the US. Can we have an ETA please?


Hi jaward enjoy E3212 i did anyways got one question.

1. Is there going to be any more sega old classics on the store near future i really enjoy them. and know they sold.

keep up great work.

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 14:54

There were a handful that just came out (Alex Kidd, Revenge of Shinobi etc). I haven’t heard word on others from Sega.

Is there anywhere I can request new Avatars?.

lardteamaker 06 June, 2012 @ 14:22

Only Dragon’s Dogma DLC for me this week. Still awaiting Pinball Arcade, Daggerdale and Zen Pinball 2.


Cummon guys vita love there so much Europe still behind can’t we have a major push we hear jack and yosh say you listen to the community push the vita all the way :)


no no no no NO NO NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Where the F… is Pinball Arcade Vita!!!!!!

this is so depressing!

i’m going to cyprus in 2 weeks time and i really need a pinball game on the vita…

So whats the odds of getting Pinball Arcade before the 20th?
Please answer!

almighty-slayer 06 June, 2012 @ 14:23

Nothing for me

Are you going to expand the DLC description for Ridge Racer and SFxTekken? 2x and 12x don’t really explain anything. Also, I’m assuming the Ridge Racer DLC is for Vita?

It sounds like this week’s update was put out in a bit of a hurry (E3 work?) and hopefully will be tidied up later.


Any news on Vita?

LIKE-NO-ONE 06 June, 2012 @ 14:26

Please make Ratchet & Clank All for One free to Plus members like the US region.

Omegabug2003 06 June, 2012 @ 14:26

Is there any news on Legend of Dragoon coming to Europe?


Umm vita?

Amy_Belgium 06 June, 2012 @ 14:26

errrrrrr avatars ,CAPCOM avatars jawad? pinball for Vita? where are they? & are we getting any EURO 2012 avatars ? like sackboy with country flags we had in wc 2010?

Can i play ps2 games(like Shellshock Nam ’67) in widescreen 16:9 ??

Jawad or fellow ps3 gamers ?


@ 18 aka pinkplaybunny

No it did not, where the hell do you get your news from?
its not released anywhere yet.


MASSIVELY disappointed that we have to wait so long for WALKING DEAD EPISODE 2.

When I paid my £15 up front, I am sure they said it would be a monthly episodic game. They lied.


No Vita content and still not the promised update on when we can expect Pinball Arcade. It would be nice if Sony would communicate a little bit more with their customers. :(


Hello Jawad:
Can you give info on the PSN version of Rotastic?



Why there’s only war games for the PS2 in the PSN?
North american psn has a lot of different titles, we only got a couple of sport games, some random rpg and a load of warfare games.

Jawad Ashraf 06 June, 2012 @ 15:10

Different publishers for the US so can be easier/harder for them.

PhantomOfOpera 06 June, 2012 @ 14:28


I guessed the store update would not be as strong due to E3 but I love what you have done with PS+.

I already have most of the games announced (except Virtual Fighter 5 and Warhammer) but I would love to keep all of them in my donwload list.

Could you clarify the following,
1) I presume I can always iniate a download of the ones I arealdy have, stop it few seconds later and they shoud appear in my donwload list available to be downloaded at later time. Is that correct?
2) Are we in UK going to get Closure, Rock of Ages, World Gone Sour and Pinball Arcade? I appreciate dates are not easy to share with us but a yes or no answer woudl suffice for now.


Wow E3 week and not a single thing for the vita

I want to buy stuff for my vita……Sony make it happen


Hi Jawad,

Can you please put up the original Getaway for the playstation 2 on the store please, that game was a Sony classic and I would love to revisit it. Can you also put up the original GTA games ( vice city and San Andreas), I have a hankering for some classic violence.

Thanks – I will be expecting these next weeks update

Enjoy your afternoon buddy

graphicology 06 June, 2012 @ 14:30

Where is all the new vita stuff?


Shame about the lack of vita content in this update… just realised that sort of applies to the vita in general lol.

I3loodthirsty 06 June, 2012 @ 14:31

i ll throw my hat in aswell n ask for Ratchet and Clank all 4 one n just cause 2 in the next lot of ps+ games please :D


Hi Jawad,

Just wondering whether you could look into why the EA NHL ’12 online pass isn’t on the EU Store? Only just stumbled upon a preowned copy of this the other day and now my mates and I are all hunting around for online passes. If you could find out whether this is simply a delay of some sort or a concious decision to keep it US-only it would be greatly appreciated!

Jawad Ashraf 07 June, 2012 @ 09:54

I’ve let the team who deal with EA know. Once I get an update I’ll hopefully let you know.

Artemisthemp 06 June, 2012 @ 14:31

Can someone from Scandinavia or Polen confirm Hanna DLC are on their PSN?

Carnivius_Prime 06 June, 2012 @ 14:32

I got plenty to download via Plus. Darn good to be a subscriber. :D


hey happy E3 lolz erm now vita can play ps1 games or soon will does this mean you can FINNAALLLLY PUSH FOR SPYRO PLEASE

Jawad Ashraf 07 June, 2012 @ 09:57


Just kidding – I always am. It’s pretty much the main title I’m chasing around for every week. Whenever an update comes by that I can share (at the moment there isn’t anything to share) I’ll keep you guys posted.


hey happy E3 lolz erm now vita can play ps1 games or soon will does this mean you can FINNAALLLLY PUSH FOR SPYRO PLEASE ….

Really, I am looking forward to download Lords of Shadow 2 CG trailer.

Jawad Ashraf 07 June, 2012 @ 10:00

They’ll be around this week and updated throughout the week.
