hi jawad any update on spyro also which spyro is it where going to be getting if not all of them thanks =]

Jawad Ashraf 04 July, 2012 @ 15:51

No new update this week on PSOne games.

I’m looking to get the first three out. Will they arrive all in one go or separately, time will tell…

Not alot of content for me this week.

But will for sure pick up Rainbow Moon. Looks brilliant!

When will we see The Walking Dead Episode 2?
Also, is there any chance that we will see Final Fantasy Crisis Core PSP on the store?

Jawad Ashraf 04 July, 2012 @ 15:53

Telltale will announce anything once ready. We’re working with them on it but they’d be the ones to comment further. Sorry. I want it just as much you guys so I feel your pain.

Sorry to bother you every week, but any updates on any Castlevania games coming from the US store any time soon?
Whether that is Dracula X Chronicles or just Symphony of the night, either would be good to me, lol.

I asked the guys on the Konami UK twitter and they said they would look into it too, here’s hoping we get it one day.

Jawad Ashraf 04 July, 2012 @ 16:29

Sorry… But let’s hope your tweet reached some good ears, eh!


Mass Effect 3 for me.

Also hooray for more avatars!


Thanks for the update.

Anything new on YouTube for the missing countries?

Jawad Ashraf 04 July, 2012 @ 16:31

Nope. All questions on this matter need to be directed to Google as we follow their release plans.


Still no information on Suikoden series as classics?

Jawad Ashraf 04 July, 2012 @ 16:34



Hurray for ME3 Extended cut!

What no free ps plus games this month or what???


About Spec Ops: The Line and its price !!!
Price: £39.99,€59.99

39.99£ is 49.99€ !!! You will change the price right ?

Jawad Ashraf 05 July, 2012 @ 09:22

I don’t deal with the price but I’ll let Andy know.

Stonesthrow 04 July, 2012 @ 15:07

Max Payne DLC (season pass) and ME3 extended cut for me. Can finally throw ME3 off my hdd then.


No Walking Dead episode 2… Who do I call for a refund this is ridiculous

Asked last time with no response, but why exactly have prices gone up on the New Zealand PSN? Heaps of titles have gone up, there’s some $4 price increases with no rhyme or reason. We were already paying more than the currency converted amount.

Carnivius_Prime 04 July, 2012 @ 15:08

I gave up on waiting a long time ago and just got them from the US store. Best of both worlds then. They’ve had Symphony for about 5 yeeears now.

Nothing for me this week but Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy from last week is keeping me busy as is my always fave Uncharted 3 multiplayer.

any update on spyro? is it possible to request MGS special missions since my disc wont work on ps3 and why isnt there any ps+ discount on the final fantasy stuff?

Jawad Ashraf 05 July, 2012 @ 09:44

First post got the Spyro answer.

Best to ask Konami. I think the title had issues though…


What about the walking dead episode 2


Any word on Walking dead episode 2?

umbrellabio 04 July, 2012 @ 15:08

Hi Jaward,
How you doing this week?
I know it’s a long shot but any chance of getting Galerians PSone and Galerians: Ash PS2 on the store?

Jawad Ashraf 05 July, 2012 @ 09:45

I’ll add to my list. That’s about as much as I can promise.

bigbaddaddyvader 04 July, 2012 @ 15:09

Yes,seriously,where actually IS Walking Dead Episode 2?Monthly download…..I forgave them for the BTTF episodes fiasco due to the hack but this is ridiculous.Can we please get some clarification here on when we will receive the game we paid for?

oudetramlijn 04 July, 2012 @ 15:09

nice max payne3 dlc thx sony

modzerowo40i 04 July, 2012 @ 15:10

What about Bellator MMA Onslaught?

Why is there two versions of playstation move heroes with two prices of 39.99 & 12.99 in the full game trial areas.

Noodlesaurus 04 July, 2012 @ 15:10

In before the storm of “where is EP2 of TWD” comments. Guys, go to TellTale, they’re the ones who you need to ask.

Hi there Jawad, good luck this week and keep up the good work! :D


With regards to Pinball Arcade:

“Many people noticed that the PS3 version did not launch in Europe as scheduled. At the last minute Sony Computer Entertainment Europe approached FarSight with a plan to promote both the PS3 and PS Vita versions if they agreed to delay the PS3 version so that they could come out together. FarSight really couldn’t turn down that kind of publicity when a big company like Sony offers it to them, so they consented. The good news is that both the PS3 version and the PS Vita version are now scheduled for release in Europe on July 11th, and FarSight should get some great publicity that will help introduce many new people to the joys of pinball.

FarSight thanks everyone for their patience and for supporting The Pinball Arcade!”


Is it live now?

jimmybignuts 04 July, 2012 @ 15:11

what is going on with the walking dead episode 2?

DiekStiekem 04 July, 2012 @ 15:11

For those intrested in the Capcom avatars and all issues around the submission etc.

I created this thread @ ask Capcom:

Why is there no file sizes here anymore??

Jawad Ashraf 05 July, 2012 @ 09:55

As mentioned previously. file will not always be available.

This week they were absent purely due to timing (a few things were cut out).


America gets 3 new games on psplus why don’t we get some??


You want how much how much for the soundtrack for star hawk? Must be some awesome music for such a price…can I buy it twice?

Jawad I would suggest some extra strong flame proof armour for the lack of walking dead lol


The lack of PSN games for Vita is very disappointing.

AaronSOLDIER 04 July, 2012 @ 15:12

Why does Europe not have GTA4 Complete Edition?

If I buy Final Fantasy VII in the sale will it work on vita once ps1 games are enabled? Or will I need to buy a Vita Only version later? Does anyone here know?


Any possible chance of getting Spider Man 2 ps2 classic up on psn?? Its the best spider man game by far, and with the movie coming out (and amazing spider man dissapointing) i’m sure sales would be good for that 1… Cmon you know you wanna!

Connor_mufc_1985 04 July, 2012 @ 15:13

Feels like raging but won’t because it’s a waste of time… you know exactly what game im talking about Jawad :(

walking dead episode 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! pleasssssssssssssssssssse!!!!!!!!!


Nice work with the layout Jawad, looks great on my Android phone this week!

Any chance of a DLC sale in the near future? I’ll be getting The Missing Link now that it’s half price, but there’s loads of other stuff I’d get if it was discounted – such as:

Arkham City DLC Bundle (the one with Robin, Nightwing & Skins)
Dragon Age II DLCs (still £8/each, I got the game itself for £3 new!)
Crysis II Map Packs

Also, a question – is there any way to BUY content on the store that is currently FREE for plus members? i.e. I want to BUY LittleBigPlanet2 at £14.99 rather than BORROW it via Plus.


Will pick up Dungeon Twister, Worms Ultimate Mayhem Single Player Pack, & Worms 2: Armageddon Game of the Year Upgrade Pack.


I take it Worms 2: Armageddon Game of the Year Upgrade Pack recognises that you own the digital title & adds all of the DLC to it?

Kind regards

squidward88 04 July, 2012 @ 15:13

do you know when we are getting gta III and vice city

fjernbetjening 04 July, 2012 @ 15:13

I know it’s already been asked in the comments section of this post, but, we might as well let our voices be heard…


… Thank you for your time.

Jawad Ashraf 05 July, 2012 @ 09:59

Coming soon to a PS3 near you…

Bacon_Crispies 04 July, 2012 @ 15:13

I know the answer will probably be no but just want to check if Rainbow Moon will be playable on Vita, would love a good RPG to play on it.

Luna_Dragon 04 July, 2012 @ 15:14

@8; pjulledk,
PS plus update is usually the second wednesday of the month, so we’ll probably be getting more games next week, i can’t wait to see whats in store :D

do i call sony or telltale for my refund im not waiting anymore its pathetic


Still no The Walking Dead Episode 2?

What is going on with it?


Best ever… keep trying! And continues, and continues, and continues… at least not spent money to a date of month!!!! SCEE=EF

We need a date for The Walking Dead Episode 2. We bought a bundle promising a monthly release and still we’re waiting episode 2 for more than 2 months. At this rythmn, we’ll get final episode in 2012. Le lack of communication from TTG and Sony on the subject is disturbing. Aren’t we qualified for a refund?

#45: I wanted to say “At this rythmn, we’ll get final episode in 2013” :-(

EddyBrockJr 04 July, 2012 @ 15:17

Hello Jawad, am I blind or it´s all the new (except of that Oscorp phone mini game one) The Amazing Spider-Man DLC missing? I am interested in Rhino´s challenge and I can not find it anywhere, thank you ;)

supersmith2500 04 July, 2012 @ 15:18

Nothing but shovelware PS2 games and YET no free 2 games for PS+ and still yet no sign of Pinball Classics and The Walking Dead Ep. II.

I mean seriously since when is Dead Island deserved to be ”Game of the Year” when it has so many glitches, bad controls, weak voice acting and horrible graphics? I played it, hated it and traded in. But ah well, least the extended cut for ME3 is free though.

theresurected 04 July, 2012 @ 15:21

Any news on episode 2 of the walking dead

TheShamelessManc 04 July, 2012 @ 15:21

Hi Jawad
Any news about when The Walking Dead episode 2 may be released on PSN? Or even an explanation as to what/why its taking so long? Feel a bit let down about spending money on something i thought i could sink my teeth into each month, but instead have been left roaming around groaning :-\
Could of put that money to better use while passing the time!
