‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 3rd October 2012


October begins and with it that no doubt means the beginning of a busy period in gaming for us all.

To set things in motion, Capcom’s Resident Evil 6 headlines this week’s ensemble. Return to the series for a new viral outbreak with Leon, Chris and new guy Jake Muller.


If infected people aren’t your thing then maybe some intense fighting in Dead or Alive 5 will do the trick. With a returning cast of fan favourites joined by new faces Rig and Mila, have fun smashing your opponent off a snowy cliff or into a leaping tiger. Fun!


Also releasing today, and included for PS Plus subscribers is Sega’s Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. If the title hasn’t piqued your interest then how about the story – you are Ash, a devil rabbit who’s private photos have been leaked causing you to get angry. Very angry!

Other titles releasing this week include PSOne Import Tomba!, along with more Sega goodness – Nights intro Dreams now for PS3.

Enjoy this week’s update. Check back next week for more.

this is awsome about tombi but please please please tell spyro is still on its way this month …. thanks =]


Hopefully Spyro will be out this month. Remember, this is not confirmation but hope!

almighty-slayer 03 October, 2012 @ 15:01

RE6 is terrible, especially for that price. Stay well away!

Those who want to see PS1 imports from Square Enix, like myself. Please register on their website and comment to this PSOne blog entry.

Also very nice to see NIGHTS and Tomba! :)



Cool did I read that right? Nights for vita? Is this remote play or actually playable on the Vita?


Sorry, it’s PS3 only. I’ve got the error changed.

EternalChaos72 03 October, 2012 @ 15:02

jawad no avatars? whens the next batch of capcom comin?


There will be avatars today but nothing from Capcom.

Nights into Dreams for Vita?


Sorry! Error has been fixed!


When does the store update go live?


Usually by 5pm GMT. Hopefully we won’t see a delay this week.


Tomba! isn’t free for PS+ subscribers

LOL @ the price Capcom have put on Resident Evil 6.

almighty-slayer 03 October, 2012 @ 15:03

And yeah. Nothing good here whatsoever. Go spend money on Playstation Mobile games instead.


will download HELL YEAH! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit.. no free themes and avatars for plus users??? want that Fall of Cybertron dynamic theme the US got..


Double Dragon theme is free I believe.

Carnivius_Prime 03 October, 2012 @ 15:03

I’ll try the Dead Rabbits freebie and take the Double Dragon Neon theme thank you.


Nights on Vita another mistake?
I take it Jet Set Radio isn’t coming out till mid October on Vita?
At least we have Hell Yeah! today :)


Yeah mitake…sort of.

JSR is mid October, yes.


Sorry, the “sort of” wasn’t hint. It was a mistake. Agh!


Have you new info about Counter strike global offensive?
If not where can I find info about this problem? It’s frustrating for me and embarassing for SCEE.


I can’t say anything about CS still.

Hi Jawad,

Any idea on when were getting the LBP Vita demo? The US already have it :(


I’ll ask around. Might be in a couple of weeks (if we get it).

SSJ3_Bob_Marley 03 October, 2012 @ 15:04

Any idea when we will get Double Dragon Neon avatars?

I’m playing Resi 6 right now. It’s a crap. Resident is not a mindless shooter – please remember it Capcom!

Great update this week, definitely picking up NiGHTs and Sonic!

Quick question about Tomba: does it suffer from the same 50hz problem as Alundra and Klonoa? I’ll buy it if it’s actually running properly.

TrunksieGirl99 03 October, 2012 @ 15:05

So where is NiGHTS? I’m looking for it right now.

AeonTheGentleman 03 October, 2012 @ 15:05

Wait, wasn’t the Sonic adventure 2 Battle DLC cheaper?

@ Jawad:

Hi there Jawz! First things first: kudos for Tombi/Tomba! And the exclamation mark here doesn’t stand for the original spelling of the title, but rather, it shows how proud I am for this achievement. It’s been an important title in Playstation history and I’m glad that SCEE managed to release it in our store.

The question is (obviously, given it’s my question) about, you guessed it, Spyro. Now that we’re in October, are you allowed to be a bit more specific about the date (there are three other updates in this month, anyway, so you don’t have much “choice”… xD), or can you at least confirm that there’s one Spyro game coming this month?

Thanks in advance.


Thank Monkeypaw for that one.

I still can’t confirm it. It’s still down for October but could easily change.

These store updates are a joke now. Where’s DYAD you know that game that came out in the US back in JULY!!!

Why is Dead or Alive 5 First Time Pack not available in Germany? What have we done to deserve this?

Do not buy RE6! Its broken! U better fix it asap Scee! I cant play online and i’m unable to log into residentevil.net. I should sue capcom and scee for selling me a broken game. This is my first and last digital preorder.


We’re working together with Capcom to get this problem sorted in a patch imminently.

silent_strike95 03 October, 2012 @ 15:06

I’ve asked this before, but been too late to get a reply.

Any chance of a PS+ discount for Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2?



So, Spyro and Castlevania SOTN/DxC, any news?

Any news on the new look Playstation Store for PS3 that was supposed to launch this month?

As quoted from the official UK Playstation website when the new PS3 model was announced

“To tie in with the launch, PlayStation Store for PS3 is set to get a new look from October 2012 too, making it even easier for you to find and download the content you love from the comfort of your sofa.”


Well, that’s new to me. For those sorts of things there’s usually an announcement on it.

jay-silent_bob 03 October, 2012 @ 15:07

When will be LittleBigPlanet Karting Demo?
Any ideas?

CardcaptorStacey 03 October, 2012 @ 15:07

Still no Atelier Totori avatars? The game came out over a year ago! Why are we waiting so long?


Hell Yeah and DD:N Dynamic Theme for me.

I reiterate what EternalChaos72 is saying. Any avatars? Out of interest.

+1 for any Spyro News. It’s my birthday in October for real so I hope it still comes this month! Keep up the good work Jawad!


Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, what the hell Playstation!


There’s multiple groups involved with the game. Can’t just automatically blame just one, surely.


Any news on Counter Strike?
My gaming PC gets here in a few days so you’re on the verge of losing a customer.

Joke, you lost the customer weeks ago.


Again thanks for sorting out NISA, saw they also added Legastia (sp?) for the Swedish store, which is good. Anyways could you please try approaching them again about releaseing the Disgaea 4 content that is missing? It looks kinda bad that they just stopped midways. Also the disgaea 4 avatars if it ain’t too much bother.

Now down to the really important stuff:
I bought a Vita this week together with Gravity Rush. But I got this incredible craving for Xenogears on Vita. Xenogears is my absolute favorite game ever.
So could you pleeease work your magic and get Xenogears (and maybe Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Parasite Eve and some other amazing square enix RPGs) PS1 classic for the Import section of the store?

Nicko_McBrain 03 October, 2012 @ 15:08

Thank you for another great update!


Sonic Adventure 2, here I come! Been waiting so long to get it on here.


The only reason it hasn’t been released was because the PSP had no second analogue stick. Well the PSP has been succeeded by the Vita so…
Thanks. ;)

[seriously, this would be awesome. Let’s take advantage of the Vita’s extra stick, clarify that it isn’t PSP compatible on it’s page in the Store]


Where is Marvel vs. Capcom Origins?

I see that LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 only cost £10.99 for PS3.

So I went to look at the psvita store and the game costs £34.99 for PSVITA. So any price drop incoming for this game on the psvita?


Is that the right price for Lego Harry Potter? Sold! :)


I put the price I’m told so that better be right.



Crap, I had forgot about that.

Damn, no MVC:Origins. Grrr. :(

supersmith2500 03 October, 2012 @ 15:10

Whoa not just Sonic Adventure 2 but it’s Battle DLC and NiGHT’s too same time. Epic, thought NiGHT’s is out couple weeks later. Please say Sonic Adventure 2 is compatible for Vita just like NiGHT’s.

Shame MvC: Origins and CS:GO still hasen’t been released but ah well. Seriously going to get Sonic Adventure 2 soon enough.

Sega DOES what CapDON’T!


NiGHTs isn’t Vita compatible. Sorry about that boo-boo.

NiGHTS for Vita is obviously a mistake, it’s PS3 only unfortunately.



Jawad obviously counter strike isn’t coming but I honestly thunk you should give all customers a free game every week until Sony sorts it out as I remember the post saying you can pre order cs go on these certain dates not you can hope and then be told no new information yet when if obviously someone ay Sony knows so please could you respond to my ideas because it would show that Sony actually care about their customers and that you all understand how much people want this game ???


Hi Jawad,

Could you ask something who can help to answer this:

I have a serious on-going issue with LBP Vita which restricts the use of my popit while in the pod. I have completed half of the story levels, however, my popit is not accessible while I am in my pod – meaning I cannot decorate it or change costume from it, and, it stops me from getting one of the trophies.


Ah, finally the update will be out soon! I can’t wait to get my hands on Sonic Adventure 2 and its DLC! Now to just wait for the actual update to take place.



what happened to jet set radio being released on vita as various news outlets have reported. Also where the vita apps like t@g etc. getting sivck out asking and being stonewalled again. also will we be getting SH:book of memorys and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward anytime soon. Also why is it US got a bunch of RE6 avatars and once again we haven’t. I swear SCEE needs to seriously start cracking the whip with publishers account managers while also sorting themselves out too i mean seriously we are what 8 weeks with no word on CS:GO and no indication of when we will see it released.


JSR was not due this week. It was mentioned but was pulled at the very last minute.

t@g will be coming but I can’t announce the release date. There’ll be a separate reveal for that by a colleague.


Can you please try to get PS1 classic overboard for the store?

chrisandsheva 03 October, 2012 @ 15:14

@ Jawad
So RE6 IS Now working ?… if Not and you’s are Still both advertising it, And selling it in the store then do You not think that this IS wrong… ?.. Please Answer, i Hope it’s now fixed, Is it ?.

also is that the best you could do, ‘if infected people aren’t your thing’ etc.. must of taken hours to come up with that one… lol.. Not.
