Gravity Rush is finally here! That’s right; the highly anticipated game for PlayStation Vita flies its way to PS Store. Take control of Kat, a young girl with no recollection of her past in a world being attacked by a mysterious entity. Master the forces of gravity and perform spectacular acrobatic feats as you discover the charm of Gravity Rush.

For a limited only, download Gravity Rush and you’ll also receive a Military Mission pack for free. Remember, limited time only!


PulzAR blasts its way onto the PS Store. The Earth is in grave danger. Somewhere just beyond our planet’s outer atmosphere, a series of colossal meteors are spinning ever closer on a deadly collision course to wipe out humankind.

So far, all attempts to divert their trajectory have failed. Now, in mankind’s desperate last stand, it’s down to you to command a network of missiles carrying huge explosive charges and try to blast the gigantic space rocks into a harmless meteor shower before they reach Earth.

Using precision laser technology – and your AR Play Cards – you have only a limited time to program the guidance system using a series of reflectors, splitters and filters that activate the nodes that will launch the missiles towards their targets.

The fate of planet Earth rests with you. Good luck!

Check out today’s other titles such as Two Worlds II Game of the Year Edition at a lower price (limited time only), Alien Breed: Trilogy, Rune Factory Oceans, Bang Bang Racing and more!

Our PS Vita sale starts today as well, so click here to find out more details.

I will not stop posting this before i get a reply, whit more than I do not know, or I can not say/tell
Still not getting the Disgaea 4 DLCs? Did some reading on the NIS forums, seems that there was a similar incident whit the Netherlands PSN store, and then it was that scee in their infinite wisdom (read that as stupidity) demands support documents in native language of stores, What those suport documents are for, not us users, as we do not see them… scee quit this stupidity, most of Europe know English..
Next point, when will the following PSP games be avavible on the Store? The ones whit (VITA) is not vita compatible.
Astonishia Story (Vita)
Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (Vita)
Final Fantasy Crisis Core
Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleap
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Valkyria Chronicles 2 (Vita)
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
Cross Region Gifting. WHEN?

cheeky4life 13 June, 2012 @ 1:32 pm   2

Hi Jawad

Have there been any further updates on Crash Bash?

Can you please ask Ross why this title is taking a long time as it was supposed to be released last year?

Please can you ask Ross about any updates and please reply.


EternalChaos72 13 June, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   3

Jawad any status on capcom avatars? has sony or capcom even submitted them yet?!

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 2:58 pm    

    They (Capcom) are going through the avatars. I haven’t been given an ETA.

WolfiePL 13 June, 2012 @ 1:34 pm   4

can we expect Silent Hill HD Collection avatars?

vickaz91 13 June, 2012 @ 1:35 pm   5

great update two worlds for me but seriously jawad WHY DOES SONY EU HATE SPYRO PS1 CLASSIC people ask every week and never hear any news or anything please get it for us dude please

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 2:59 pm    

    I’m trying to get this for you guys. It’s in progress is about all I can say at the moment.


hi im a ps plus member and I heard when your ps plus expires and your games disappear from your download list but if I renew ps plus again will my games reappear ??

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:02 pm    

    You’ll get to play the Plus games again but won’t need to redownload.

Spartan57 13 June, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   7

Any word on Dino Crisis 1 & 2

Carnivius_Prime 13 June, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   8

Nothing for me. Already got the Alien Breed games or else I may have been tempted. But hey I got plenty to play from last week’s superb value Plus update so not exactly short of games to get through. 🙂


Still no Pinball Arcade! 🙁

Bacon_Crispies 13 June, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   10

Good to see the Escape Plan DLC at the low price of £0.21, when the US blog got a post on it and we didn’t I was worried that we might not be getting it.
On the flip side Gravity Rush follows the trend of a digital game being more expensive then retail versions.

JanDuin68 13 June, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   11

Any news when The Pinball Arcade will be available in Europe?

EternalChaos72 13 June, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   12

this is beyond a joke jawad!!

McMahon-Man 13 June, 2012 @ 1:37 pm   13

I was on the store on Saturday and couldn’t find the Journey demo? Did it not go up last week?

CorrisD 13 June, 2012 @ 1:38 pm   14

So, any update on Dracula X Chronicles for the EU stores?

Sorry if you get asked this every week, but as a big Castlevania fan I was hoping to pick it up on my Vita to find it wasn’t on the store when I did, so don’t mind me if I am here every week asking if there has been any updates, lol.

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:12 pm    

    Nope. I’ll get Ross to find out about this along with Symphony of the Night and Suikoden.

somethingatt 13 June, 2012 @ 1:38 pm   15

Gravity Rush with DLC, £35. Not bad at all. £30 at ShopTo (with DLC) but extra £5 is worth it for no disc and instead of waiting a day waiting few mins for download.

Keep the sensible digital pricing going, Sony and I’ll keep the PSN purchases coming (pass it along to your publisher partners too).

Omegabug2003 13 June, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   16

No Legend of Dragoon. Is this classic PS1 title coming to Europe? 🙁

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:14 pm    

    It’s planned but with no ETA. It’s more of a once it’s ready kind of deal.

Chapel-Bill 13 June, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   17

Sigh… another week another disappointment:

We need an update about The Pinball Arcade and why we are already waiting 9 weeks without a single update on why it isn’t being released in Europe.

STUPID_DAD 13 June, 2012 @ 1:40 pm   18

Great update…can’t wait for gravity rush

XDerKleineX 13 June, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   19

Wait, isn’t the MGS HD Collection supposed to come this week to Vita? Where is it?

fredrikselvig 13 June, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   20

How much will LEGO Batman 2 be on the Vita? Norwegian price if possible.

ant1012 13 June, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   21

Are there any plans to release Sam and Max: Beyond Time and Space?
It’s been out in the US for ages but I don’t want to use my US account if there’s going to be a European version.

Also is the Anarchy Reighns / Max Anarchy demo going to be available over here? Tried playing the Jap demo but honestly have no idea what I’m doing on it because I don’t understand Japanese

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:27 pm    

    Will find out about Sam and Max.

    Sega haven’t got a date to share for that seriously fun game however, that demo is in English too. Look for it under the Options and it’s roughly the third option that lets you change the language of Voice, Text and Display. Enjoy!

vonhammer 13 June, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   22

Nothing for me.I’ll stick with plus Motorstorm and VF5.Still got everything else from that list that needs playing.

Wraith_Bringer 13 June, 2012 @ 1:42 pm   23

Jawad my good man, I’ve been meaning to ask about PS2 collections.

I really really want two games that were on PS2 called Dark Cloud and Dark Chronicle.

I would be incredibly appreciative if you’d be so kind as to contact Level-5 who make some brilliant PlayStation exclusives and inquire into the possibility and feasability of this as they said they would make Dark Cloud 3 if people asked for it. This could be the first step in making it happen.

I’d also be incredibly appreciative if you left a reply just so I know you’ve taken up this most honorable task.

Many thanks sir.


    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:28 pm    

    I’ll see what I can find out but PS2 Classics are a bit trickier to get any info for…

RunningManUK 13 June, 2012 @ 1:42 pm   24

Can you update the page for the price cuts for vita/psp?

Rhys001 13 June, 2012 @ 1:43 pm   25

OK so at least we got a release date for NZ, but because it’s a week later than everybody else (for whatever reason…) does that mean we’ll miss out on free DLC for a limited time offer? I really hope not as otherwise it would be yet another time we NZers got ripped off by Sony

chrisredfield_97 13 June, 2012 @ 1:43 pm   26

hey jaward please i hope you answer to my question i would like to ask you kindly where are the assassin’s creed 3 avatars please see my question i would appreciate it

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:40 pm    

    I don’t know any more about them. They may have fallen in to a different submission date or not submitted yet.

Bealinator 13 June, 2012 @ 1:43 pm   27

Hello Jawad,

For the next two updates would it be possible to filter in all the Vita sale content? I’d just like to know what’ll be on sale – what Andy highlighted were some of the items due to go on sale.

Do you know if Tombi will make it onto our Store fairly soon after the US Store?

And I know Doctor Who for Vita has been delayed, do you know if it will be free/cheaper for PS3 owners?

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:43 pm    

    Sometimes it’s worth holding out and logging into the store and finding out. Maybe you’ll be surprised.

    Tombi might. Better to pester monkeypawgames on that one.

    I doubt anything will happen for the Doc.

Hemming87 13 June, 2012 @ 1:43 pm   28

Hi Jawad.

Just a quick question on a personal favourite of mine that I hear is coming out to the US store this summer, Tombi!

Is there any news about it (and it’s sequel) making it’s way to the EU store?

Babel Rising looks like an interesting one.

MR_COATES 13 June, 2012 @ 1:43 pm   29

Gravity Rush is $35.99 in the United States – we’re getting done over on pricing yet again. Shame on you Sony.


34.99 Euro is a great price for Gravity Rush, especially with the free DLC!

teflon6678 13 June, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   31

Is the Gravity Rush pricing correct? Going on the previous track record, I thought €35 would have come out as £30. Is this including the 10% online discount for Vita retail games?

SCEE are really confusing me with online pricing. I want to buy this online, but I don’t see this as being fair or correct, I’m sorry to say, so can you please confirm that this is absolutely the online price, or if it’s a minor typo?

AsmodeanBT 13 June, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   32

Still no Suikoden games as Classics.

Jordyce 13 June, 2012 @ 1:44 pm   33

Weird request;

Would it be possible to fix the name on “Arc the Lad”? It’s currently on the store under “Arc the Lad 1”, where the original title had no “1” at the end, and the other two titles use “II” and “III” to denote their entries. It’s going to look very awkward on PS Vita with a line-up saying:

Arc the Lad 1
Arc the Lad II
Arc the Lad III

Small thing, but a fix would be really appreciated.

    Jawad Ashraf 13 June, 2012 @ 3:53 pm    

    Noted but it’s probably not a quick fix as bizarre as that might seem.

iESCUDO 13 June, 2012 @ 1:45 pm   34

Gravity Rush price on US: $35.99 EU price = £34.99,€34.99

Really? Good luck with that.


Great time to buy Escape Plan, it’s on sale and the new DLC is only €0,25!

I am also waiting for the Pinball Arcade.
I don’t understand what’s so difficiult to release that in Europe.

In the US-Store they got already the first DLC today and in the EU-Store is nothing. 🙁


If this support document problem really is true, and many titles don’t get released just because of that, maybe SCEE should rethink what they are doing, yes? 🙂

Anyways, kudos to Monkeypaw Games for releasing sweet PSOne classics almost every week, keep it up! 🙂

table football DLC for Vita?? Is this already available to download?? and when is it available for PS3

windsorblue01 13 June, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   39

@K-X-A post 6 they do not disappear from download list you just cant play them when its expires but you have to start don’t have to complete the download again when you get plus back to change the date on them this has been told in countless posts

seanoc1 13 June, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   40

Pleased we get the Escape Plan demo and dlc including the discount, equality between regions is good Sony.
Pleasantly surprised at the Gravity Rush price too, after seeing the price in US the same as Resistance I feared it would be the same here too.

Where is Batman Arkham City(full ps3 game)??

SCEA has it……

iLiViNG-_-LEGEND 13 June, 2012 @ 1:47 pm   42

Why does the USA store always get better avatars than EU? Sucks we keep getting ”The Studio” avatars, cant wait for CS:GO in August:)

mike20036 13 June, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   43

Nothing much for me today to be honest. I might get something later on but don’t know yet.

GhostViper 13 June, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   44

You guys now if Doctor Who will get out in Norway sometime? Allready have it on Disk, but would be nice to have it on the Vita 🙂
And looking forward to testing out Gravity Rush 🙂

when is foosball 2012 available?? Ignore previous post unless same game

Skookie30 13 June, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   46

@ jawad

2 questions

1- will lollipop chainsaw on PSN?

2- is EU getting the No more heros DLC to mark release of lollipop chainsaw?

censorship is NOT a issue here, no-one can nip pick some games alright but other games have to be censor heavy & over-rideing BBFC like TM was.

oh oh this update is alright i get arc the lad 3 next week when i get paid. MP are my fab publishers

Rhys001 13 June, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   47

On a more positive note (from my previous post), good to see the new Escape Plan DLC out here (and at the discounted rate to match the US store’s price)

INS1GHTFUL 13 June, 2012 @ 1:49 pm   48

Escape plan DLC is a definite buy, but Grav rush for £35 is waaaaay too much. I can buy it from most online retailers cheaper and then i will have a physical copy that can be sold on.

sometimes i just don’t understand the PSN pricing. if it was £25 (which makes more sense given its $35 on the US store) then i would have bought it straight away

Awesome_Aleks 13 June, 2012 @ 1:49 pm   49

Will GT Academy be released for download in Australia considering it is available everywhere else?

JetSerge 13 June, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   50

Jawad, please call someone from the certification team and get us an update on Pinball Arcade release date. I’m sure you should be able to find a person who is responsible for this. If this person is ignoring your mails, just call him and ask the direct question.

Waiting for the update…
