hey jawad nice update but iam still holding out for the spyro trillogy please please please make sure it comes out this month look how well tombi did within 1 week so spyro trillogy would do 3x as good lol =]


I’m really anxious for this to come out too but again, October is the only rough date I have. It’s still going through the usual processes PSOne titles need to go through. Hold on!


Let the complaining begin :P

No Walking Dead episode 4? Can’t say I’m entirely surprised.


We’re working with the publisher on this. As far as I know it’s not too far behind, but definitely not today. I’d really recommend asking Telltale as well…

And what about Retro City Rampage for Vita and PS3?


It’s currently in certification and should be out this month.

Good update Jawad,

Quick questions:

1) Will Spyro be hitting the PS Store this month as you’ve said previously?
2) Will Tomba! be fixed to enable it to be played on Vita, as well as fixing the slowdown of the music? At £3.19 it is a steal, but these downsides are not good at all.
3) Will there be a DLC sale soon as Andy suggested? I’d love Batman AC DLC to be included (as I’m sure he knows…).


1. I haven’t heard otherwise but I will be asking about. Remember, October hasn’t been confirmed.

2. Monkeypaw are looking into a fix.

3. Perhaps. Andy actually no longer deals with sales as he’s moved on to another team (that traitor!*).

*We love him really.

Also, where’s Retro City Rampage?


Currently in certification. It shouldn’t be too long.

Yo, Jawad,
Nice update! Might be picking up Worms.

Any news on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PSOne Classics?


No news. I did see some places mentioning this, but it’s not due today :( :(

Jack-Bauer-89 10 October, 2012 @ 15:03

Incoming hate about the (not so shocking) lack of The Walking Dead Episode 4!

*dives for cover*

@ Jawad:

Hi there, Jawad! Guess who’s back to annoy you guys some more.

However, this time my question will just be nothing more than a mere check of the situation (and given my username, you can guess which one). Now that half October is gone, there are two updates left this month. So when are the Spyro games going to be released? Next week, the week after that one or it’s been pushed back again? I’m not mad, I’m just askin’.


Okay, so I’ve got a tiny, bad update in the few minutes of my response above… it may not hit in October after all. It’s still in QA from what I know…sorry!

any chance of the ico collection being put on the ps+ IGC any info please


Oh, do you have any idea if PS3 owners of Doctor Who will be given an incentive to grab the Vita version? At £7.99 I’m not all that keen if I’m being honest.

This is a bit disappointing, I thought Castlevania: Symphony of the Night would be released today :(


Nice to see Way of the Samurai 4 though.


Sadly this isn’t true.

I’ll try and get to the bottom of this.

Another Walking Dead episode that will be released a week or two later on the EU PSN than everywhere else. Good job guys…


Any news about the spyro ps1 games?


It may not drop in October. I’m currently chasing it up. Give some guys a kick up the bum.

CardcaptorStacey 10 October, 2012 @ 15:05

Still no Atelier Totori avatars?

Now my comments are getting ignored…


and wheres COD:BOD new trailer ?

reel_big_kris 10 October, 2012 @ 15:05

I have been trying to purchase worms revoloution with the worms golf preorder bonus, but it keeps saying:

“You do not have access to this type of content”

Any idea on why I couldn’t preorder it?


Will be grabbing Bulletstorm.

No WD Episode 4? :okay:


The lack of walking dead, counter strike, castlevania and spyro is gonna rumble through the comments for yet another week

CardcaptorStacey 10 October, 2012 @ 15:06

Where’s Atelier Totori avatars?

wut no retro city rampage?

also when will tomba be fixed? its playing in 50hz when it was advertised to be playing in 60hz leaving the music playing slower than it should be


RCR is on it’s way soon.

Monkeypaw are currently looking at a possible fix to the issue.

Nice update. I wonder if there will be a demo for Nights into Dreams~

*in WORMS voice* INCOMING!

Gamesgbkiller 10 October, 2012 @ 15:06

but whu no Retro City Rampage ?

EternalChaos72 10 October, 2012 @ 15:07

OMFG RE6 AVATARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still no news about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive…
What a joke, it’s almost two months now…


Question on Tekken Tag 2 Music:

Wasn’t there supposed to be a Tekken Music Pack that includes the Music from 1 to Tag 1 for a reduced price? US Store has it, as well as the rest of platforms. (I hope it is that you forgot about it).


You are corrct, there is a bundle indeed.


Any word on Walking Dead Episode 4 Jawed ?

Also may I ask, will there be any plans on releasing both Assassins Creed Liberation and Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified on the store before(pre-order)/after release ?


No plans for a pre-order but should be out same time.

Where the heck is the Mercomancer for Borderlands 2?! It came out yesterday…
And Walking dead 4 being late is no supirse just hope it doesn’t take too long.


Vice City?

Do you know if/when new little kings story dlc will arrive? Thanks in advance :)

Hi Jawad, last week when Tomba! was released it didn’t get into the following folders: “Latest PSone classics” and in the T-V selection of PSone classics. It is in the PSone classics imports folder however, but do you think you can talk to the store team so they can put the game in those folders? :)

Thanks, and great update today by the way :)


I’ll let them know. Except a change or two soon.

Carnivius_Prime 10 October, 2012 @ 15:08

Dang. I was hoping Retro City Rampage was going to be here today. Enjoyed the trial on the US store. Some lovely authentic pixel work in that game. Ah well. Think I’ll save my monies today.


It’ll be out later this month we hope.

No Walking Dead :-( Hope we see it soon, like with episode 2 that came a couple of days after and not in the next wednesday update. But still, it’s such a darn shame it happens again and again. I know you do everything to get the situation right, but can’t you (or Telltale, don’t know who the ‘culprit’ is) anticipate the problems now after 2 previous occassions? (And I guess you all will be so happy when the day episode 5 is on EU PSN finally arrives and you don’t have the nagging fans anymore who are angry when it doens’t release on time :P)

Anyway. Joe Danger for me! So happy that game came so fast after the X360 release


We’re totally aware. It’s well worth letting Telltale know your sentiments as well.

a bit excessive on Way of the Samurai 4 – considering disc versions can be bought for £34.85

and the pricing on Naughty Bear is outrageous it’s $14.99 on US psn 14.99 euros is actually $19 and £9.35

stop having Europe subsidise American gaming market

TheBigBoss0001 10 October, 2012 @ 15:08

Where is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night? Was supposed to be released today.

Any news on Crash Bash?


It shouldn’t have been announced as it’s not ready for release.

And no news on Crash Bash.

CS GO, rage incoming. Nah but seriously. This is beyond a mistake. Something dosent seem to be right here :/


– I really wish they would trophy patch Assassin’s Creed 1 then I might actually look to buy AC1 again. Could you nudge Ubisoft heavily it a benefactor not a hindrance? And a great promotional pitch like MGS4.
– No walking Dead episode 4? Great…

– Could we get The Walking Dead avatars? Like headshots of all the stars?
– On a personal note I don’t suppose you could get more dragon avatars? :P


Head shots probably won’t pass submission.

theplotlessplot 10 October, 2012 @ 15:09

What about Retro City Rampage for the PS3 and the Vita?
The game’s already out on every other platform!


It’s going through certification currently.


Hey Jawad,

Couldn’t you go into Square-Enix’s office like a boss, smash some desks with your bare fists, and declare that we in Europe, DEMANDs: Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Parasite Eve and Xenogears (yeah it’s so important that I mentioned it twice).
We want thoose games, and we want them now.
Tell them that it is not negotiable.

Well… Please ask them cause I’d love to play Xenogears on my Vita. Cause it is my absolute favorite game in the wrorld.



I’d probably get kicked out by security if I did that!

I’ve mentioned it a few times. It’s really down to them.

No Walking Dead Episode 4? Not surprising given SCEE’s track record. Why no mention to at least say it’s delayed YET AGAIN? It may placate the moaning in the comments.


JAWAD where is suikoden 1and 2 and ff crisis core please for the love of god tell konami and square enix to sort this scandal out also why are tomba and klonoa inferior versions will the suikoden games be also slower loading distorted frame rates and musis


Kinda saw that no Walking Dead Ep.4 wasn’t gonna be here on time ;p

Anyway ,Jawad I’ve wrote about an issue for the past 3 weeks have with Far Cry 2, being a Plus member I’m supposed to have this game in my catalog of free games to play, however It simply shows up with the blue bag to insinuate I’ve purchased it before (which i haven’t) and if i want the game – I have to pay the full price for it, additionally the version I had before this issue arose was a trial version and when Plus gave the free version whenever i downloaded it it turned out to be a trial :(

Thanks /potential91



I would strongly take it up with customer services and explain the sitution. They should be able to look into your purchase history and assist you in the problem.


wish joe danger 2 was available as a separate discount for plus members, i already have the 1st game, so the bundle is of no use to me.. ah well..

will get the tokyo jungle dlc tho! and need to download bulletstorm



No surprise really about Walking Dead. Thought you’d have learnt by now after all you’ve had 3 episodes to get it right. Guess I’ll just grab a few animals for Tokyo Jungle.


Did you tell Telltale this, too?

RE5 and Bulletstorm for FREE? Are you trying to maintain my recluse status? ;-)

Any news on Retro City Rampage, that looks promising!



Waiting to get some feedback from dev, actually.

AlfaEchoVictor 10 October, 2012 @ 15:12

I have a suggestion: why not The Getaway and The Getaway: Black Monday in PS2 games in the PS Store? Or even a HD version.

Retro City Rampage for Vita?

NikeJustDoItNike 10 October, 2012 @ 15:12

No walking dead ep 4…




Hopefully it won’t be too far away.


I was looking forward to buying Dishonored digitally, but it’s £10 more than it is in the shops. Ridiculous. Come on Bethesda, get with it.


So no CS:GO, no Retro City Rampage,no Walking Dead and probably no news about their release dates until the day before release. Gotta love EU PSN.


Retro City isn’t too far off. It’s just in certification. Any moment now…

No walking dead episode 4? How come you guys always deliver this series late!?
What’s with the price of Dishonored as well, £50 for digital is just way too much!
Ah well, at least PS+’s Resi 5 and Bulletstorm will lessen the sting a bit.

What’s up with the Spy Hunter price? Thee RRP is £29.99 so should the price not be cheaper on the store and not more expensive then the RRP?

Where’s the Borderlands 2 dlc that was released on the US store and XBL yesterday?

Was really looking forward to Castlevania: SOTN. Sort of hope that Konami didn’t mean 2013, instead of 2012.


No retro city rampage? REALLY?

Come on, this is out on the US PSN, the Xbox globally, and steam. Can SCEE really not get this out on release day when it’s been in development for 8 years?

Come on, EU PSN. this is a step back to the bad old days of poor EU service.

Great update bro, would love a nice discount for Rainbow Moon or Worms Revolution somewhere down the line, perhaps even as a plus freebie if you’re feeling generous.

That said, do you maybe have an estimate as to when Retro City Rampage is coming because goddamn that looks like a lot of fun.



Some time this month. Should hopefully be quite soon.

The_Great_Ali93 10 October, 2012 @ 15:15

where is Walking Dead Episode 4?

Where is counterstrike? I’d rather have it late than never or at least an update to as why

The_Great_Ali93 10 October, 2012 @ 15:15

where is Walking Dead Episode 4?

Where is counterstrike? I’d rather have it late than never or at least an update to as why


No Walking Dead episode 4, here we go again…


Hello there!

Nice free games for Plus, but I already own Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition. Nonetheless, I’ll still put it in my download list if I ever need it.

Also, any word on why the Sonic Adventure 2 “Battle DLC” is almost tiwce as expensive as in North America? It is priced €4,49 here, and $2,99 in North America. Why the huge difference for the exact same content?

Also, where is Retro City Rampage? North America got it today, and it’s one of the games I am looking forward to. I’ve been waiting to play it for months now!

And finally, weren’t there three DLC characters for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 supposed to be released today? Miharu Hirano, Sebastian and Slim Bob? Or is that a title update, rather than downloadable content?

Hope to get an answer on these questions!

Hi Jawad,

WHat about a discount for the Eye of Judgment DLC or making it free since it is an old and unsupported game…

I hope you can replay this time…



You know Jawad, SCEE’s QA must be the entire industry’s answer to the snail. This is the THIRD time in a row for Walking Dead, unacceptable!


Hey Jawad,

No Mechromancer for Borderlands 2 ?


Finding out about this as I’m hearing some people had it through a title update.

Silver-Seraphim 10 October, 2012 @ 15:16

Hey Jawad,

Are we ever going to get Odin Sphere, GrimGrimoire, Xenogears or either of the Darkstalkers games that US PS store has had for months.

Monster_Zero_UK 10 October, 2012 @ 15:16

Here’s another question many are bound to ask – I’m a PS Plus member and already own Joe Danger 1. Am I going to have to pay the full £9.99 for JD2, or is there an additional discount for purchasing the twin-pack?

The decent releases on the store pale due to the lack of Retro City Rampage. Further searching reveals the release date for EU as ‘later this month’. Yay! Can’t wait for.. er.. later. Is there an actual release date, PSN store update person?


and again the same story with the walking dead, you really do not learn from your mistakes but at least your incompetence remains very regular. You are really making fun out of us and you are not even able to take your responsabilities and at least give us an explanation. SCEE really is the worst bunch of incompetent people i’ve ever seen!!!!!!


Retro City Rampage? Where art thou?

I’ve got bad feeling about this….

We never get answers. Remember the Americans
are more important.

Guys, stop asking about CS:GO. It’s blatantly obvious it’s not coming out but Jawad and Fred are unable to talk about it. At NO POINT have SCEUK confirmed that the game will eventually come out since the “it will be a global release” announcement. Since then there were obviously legal issues that they can’t talk about and the game has been quietly cancelled in Europe. We’ll never see it. It’s just the way it is.

Move on, I have (I picked it up on 360).

A decent enough update but sadly the focus will once again be on what isn’t here rather than what is. Maybe if the EU store update was released BEFORE the US one, then everybody would see these posts at face value rather than with a checklist of what the US received, highlighting what is missing.

It’s disappointing to see no Retro City (any idea when we can expect this?), no Mechromancer for BL2 (what’s the story with this?) and that the Walking Dead fiasco is seemingly repeating itself. Please SCEE, at least try to mitigate against these repeat occurrences.


Walking Dead ? What’s the crack ? Wish i hadn’t bought the season pass now since we will probably get the last 2 episodes after the retail release. Also disappointed to see that Europe aren’t getting Retro City rampage on time. To be expected i suppose. SCEE really is at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to getting the latest stuff.


Hi jawad is retro city rampage coming today?

Also will there be a weekly update for PS Mobile every Wednesday?

I’m sad to not see Retro city rampage this week, only as I worry the US game sites are promoting the game’s ramp up to release in the US, then by the time it lands in the the EU people have forgotten which I’m guessing for an indie game is really be bad for sales.
On a slightly related note Closure or Dyad ever coming out in this region?

Also if Tomba could be made to work on my Vita I’d be a happy man.

nemesisND1derboy 10 October, 2012 @ 15:21


Man, I expected no Walking Dead but it’s still bloody ridiculous. I don’t know how you can have the same problem three times in a row. You still haven’t got CS: GO out and won’t tell anybody any news, there’s still no sign of DYAD despite it apparently being in submission.

I know it’s not all your fault Jawad, but the display of incompetence SCEE has shown recently is a disgrace, really. What’s worse is there’s no communication.

Honestly, you guys are terrible at communicating these things to your fans. The worst in the business, to be honest. I just don’t know how you can mess up consistently, time and time again. It’s unfathomable.


Again, this is all assuming us as a bad guy. No fingers are being pointed but seem to question Telltale. 2 sides to every coin…unless you’re a trickster!


few seem to question*

UnlikelyMelodies 10 October, 2012 @ 15:21


Read the Joe Danger 2 blog entry. It clearly says that, as a plus member, you can get the twin pack for £7.99.

nemesisND1derboy 10 October, 2012 @ 15:21


What about the people who have already paid you their money for the full season of The Walking Dead in advance? You’ve delivered the content to them late every single episode except for the first, that’s an absolute disgrace. You never say what the reason is, and whether it’s a business reason or not, you owe people an explanation as to why content they have paid for is not being delivered to them when it should be.

Seriously, what’s the story with CS: GO as well? It should have been released around the time the last Walking Dead episode was supposed to.

This really is unbelievable. Have you guys got anything to say?

Umm where is castlevania symphony of night?


Could you please share some information on when we can expect to see the release of Dyad? What kind of time frame – weeks or months? Will we ever see it in Europe?

I’ve been looking forward to playing Dyad more than any other game for several months! :(

Please don’t disappoint; I’d really love to play Dyad some day.


We’re working with the dev on it. Just waiting on a few things but I believe it’s progressing.


Any chance of XCOM comming to PS Classics?
Would be great.

Also how long till Resident evil 2 is vita compatible?

Many thanks and I look forward to your replies.


Great update Jawad. Will be grabbing Bulletstorm and Resident Evil 5. Was just thinking with Halloween in 3 weeks would it be possible we could see Costume Quest and maybe Infamous festival of blood on ps+ on Halloween?

Would like to get Costume Quest as i never played it but have already got Infamous festival of blood. I only mention it so others could try it out if they haven’t done so already and they both make great Halloween day games.

Would be nice if both could been on store but make a choice to download between 1 of them.


Hey Jawad,
Can you give a timeframe about when ps plus vita features will be detailed. Also can you tell when I can buy ps plus from vita store?

Cheers :)


Soon… please wait for more news.

nemesisND1derboy 10 October, 2012 @ 15:23

Oh, and no Retro City Rampage. Another one to add to the growing list.


Where is retro city rampage? This is so dissapointing

Ok, I give up my EU account.

Im buying retro city at steam and creating an US account.

I had enough, seriously.

And BTW, still sync problems on Escape Plan Director’s cut trophys.

Castlevania: SOTN (PSOne)? Retro City Rampage (Vita)?

Instead we get crap like Spy Hunter (lol). Well, maybe next time.

FlyingUberHuzo 10 October, 2012 @ 15:26

Such a shame that Poland won’t have DisHonored Dig.Ver. in Store …

as far as i can see we get a special “BLES” version where you’ll have problems with DLC and any patches as usual with Bethesda…


But the content rules! Very nice update, and my wallet will be crying again…


I hate to nag but back when E3 was happening, everything was being delayed and you said it would go back to normal after it finished… well it seems everything is still being delayed.

Will things go back to how they used to or stay how they are now? (by how they used to I mean update info being posted a day in advance)

Also disappointed that Retro City Rampage isn’t included. It’s out on every other platform and I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.

Woww so many good content this week! Derrick, doctor who joe danger psplus bundle, naughty bear for me. Any news about page chronica? No ps mobile games this week? Thanks

God dam EU store is a joke and it never gets better. wished id saved my dow and not got the vita now is sooo good but no games for me at all evan the psp games i want dont work still no word on MOH 1/2 working for EU vitas does eveywere else MW3 still £58 lmfao missing games missing pics never any word back or coms of any kind i hate xbox but am growing to hate sony just as much when will u see we all want the same games the same time. Bring some fps to the vita its ment to be a hard core gameing device not a kids flower growing dog petting gem finding Vtech

I hate to moan, but if a publisher posts a date for a release of their product you really should ensure that is met. Konami announced a date for Castlevania and as has happened many times in the past SCEE have not delivered. As a consumer this is really frustrating.

Also, you need to get the store unified with the rest of the PlayStation stores. Still no Dyad or CS is ridiculous and now no RCR.


when are you guys gunna fix the plus section of the store, it looks rubbish how it is and hides content in the wrong sections, like free themes are in the exclusives not the free themes section, its getting silly now, the american store is fine, in fact i see it has ‘dynamic’ moving backgrounds now and ours in the UK is broken and badly laid out, sorry to have to complain but its very unprofessional and for new comers to plus probably quite confusing!! on a lighter note, getting me some joe danger for sure , peace =)


There’ll be a proper fix soon. Like, real soon.

Guess who also is back to annoy you lot like last week,first thanks Jawad for your”anyone is free to comment”comment.a nice update I’ll take resi evil 6 avatars and jo danger bundle.any word on dawnguard yet as bethesda has not said a word.


No word, no.


Something to cheer you up slightly, the Borderlands 2 mechromancer is available, at least for those with premiere club access. After downloading the patch, mechromancer playable for me.


You are correct, just got this info now. It’s being looked into for others now though.


Very happy to get Bulletstorm & Derick. Also thank YOU for MVC:O & may I just say a big congrats on getting Capcom to get those RE6 avatars.

I’m happy. :)

i take it theres still no news on counter strike:GO then looks like i wont be buying it this week then lets hope next week

Jawad, you let me down last week. Only one dynamic flower theme and two dynamic American cityscapes? Come on fella, where were the dynamic waterfall themes, or the windmills? It’s not as if I’m asking for game related dynamic themes, y’know like Dishonored, XCOM or Resident Evil 6. I mean, that would be ridiculous.

So I hope there are plenty of terribly animated dynamic themes from an Eastern Block mafioso company, of daisies and log cabins….maybe another Chicago cityscape?

Not asking too much is it?


And again playstation EU doesn’t deliver. Where is retro city rampage? lame….

Bummer, I was looking forward to RCR. Might pick up the Joe Danger bundle and Derrick.

Jawad/Andy, could you please check why my comments constantly need moderation and don’t appear automatically? Thanks :)


Can you tell me when we can expect Doom 3? USA already have it.


In the next few weeks.

You know, all this moaning could be mostly avoided by publishing release dates/delays at the start of each month. The reason we all moan is because we never get told when things will appear, so we wait for the updates expectantly, and we’re invariably disappointed.

It’s not a very good way to run a service.

Question: I already own resident evil 5 and one of the pieces of DLC. isn’t it possible to make the dlc that’s in the gold edition free as well, as I realy don’t feel like downloading an entire game I already own on disk just to gain access to the dlc.

SiborgSimoSctlnd 10 October, 2012 @ 15:33

I have no idea why there are so many people commenting about how the comments will be full of complaints again.

Of course they will! And the should be. Anyone taking Sony’s side is just a kiss-ass.

They are a company who refuses to explain their unfair and substandard service to Europe.

Where is CounterStrike!?


Can Someone tell me why Dishonored is not available in Poland?


I was a late comer to The Walking Dead series, I purchased the first three in one go and loved every second. It is a shame about episode 4 being missed but I’ve been waiting for Dawnguard, FF 10, Hitman HD collection and various other games for months and I don’t cry or get annoyed I’m talking to you CS:GO and Spyro fan boys. No-one is ENTITLED to any games or DLC, the fact we have a games industry itself is a privilege. And while yes I understand we (the customers) put money into these company’s it’s not like we ourselves do not get a great deal of enjoyment in return.

Am I right ?


Jawad, I think Walking Dead ep 4 should be taken out of QA, the US has it so we know it works, and put up NOW! No more of this QA BS!


SCEE you friggin’ slowpokes, do your job or let someone better do it for you!


Good Afternoon Jawad,

Just like to say thank you for a great update this week. Looking forward to spending some money in the store today!

Twisted_Panda 10 October, 2012 @ 15:37

Yet again we don’t get walking dead on time, glad i got the season pass, nice one sony !

I find it funny that buying the three Assassin’s Creed Complete Packs separately is CHEAPER than buying the bundled release.

Shpadoinkle666 10 October, 2012 @ 15:37

You guys are unbelievable…
No Walking Dead, no Retro City Rampage, STILL no Dyad, STILL no CS:GO.
Terrible, shoddy service.


I know my last comment had strong language but its how I feel and I’ve had enough of SCEE customers being treated as an afterthought.


that price for worms revolution is wrong its £10.99 NOT £9.99


I would like to personally apologise for this. The pricing for this changed very late without being informed.

The correct price is £10.99.

Once again apologies for this error in my post.

where is derrick the deathfin for australia and new zealand?

No Retro City Rampage? Can’t say I’m surprised, EU PSN has a speciality in never having things ready on time.

I didn’t get this on steam because of the idea of finally having something to use my vita for, but well, I’m not waiting that long. Sorry PSN.


The reputation of “SCEE” (SCEUK) is in absolute ruins. There’s no coming back from this. You would have to run the service without error for a year and MAYBE you’d gain people’s trust again.

I hope you convey this to your superiors, Fred.

When the PS4 comes out and people don’t buy it in Europe – where PlayStation brand loyalty is so high – I hope you guys understand why.

I get that this is not Jawad or Fred’s fault. I just hope you’re doing everything in your (admittedly very limited) power to educate the powers that be.

You’ve tarnished a relationship with your customers that took decades to build. And gamers, in general, don’t forgive easily.

@DKShadow I would assume the complete pack includes the first Assassin’s Creed as well, since it’s 8GB bigger than the three games below it, but that’s just a guess.

chrisandsheva 10 October, 2012 @ 15:42

@ Jawad
As there is no official ps plus manager i have to ask you, will we in the EU be getting a similar 10% discount on (certain) NEW digital games/pre-orders, as tbh since the ‘new’ plus format i have only gotten 3 games i either hadn’t had/have, or i would want, so a discount on New releases would make being a plus member (again) worthwhile, to me.. Also i notice the demo for Risen2 seems to not be available in GB, do you know when or if it will be ?, just another ‘slightly’ on radar game, so a demo would be ideal.

ok, am now going to attempt to find/register to RE.net, even dusted the pc off especially (lol), IF anyone can share info here about it i would be gratefull, thnx.

Hey when Finland is going get Youtube App (PS VITA at least) & when Vidzone comes to PS VITA without needing remote-play & can just download it?


Nice update, though personally it’s just the Tokyo Jungle (love that game by the way!) DLC and the new Pinball tables for me.
I have to ask though if there’s any update on the 50Hz problem all PSX import games by MonkeyPaw (+Klonoa) have? I noticed the line about them running at 60Hz was removed from the description (or at least it wasn’t used in the new Tomba release), but that can’t seriously be your solution for this issue.
Also, any news about Vita compatibility for Tomba?


Hi Jawad, can I make a suggestion for the PS2 classics? I would love to see Fire Pro Wrestling Returns on the store, I believe it was released in italy back in the day but never in the UK.

luckythedog24 10 October, 2012 @ 15:43

Is there anyone i can contact to make a serious complaint about SCEE? Im being serious because the lack of updates about counterstrike is god awful and not to mention why walking dead is ALWAYS delayed for us, Then theres the mistakes always made followed by somebody saying “sorry guys made an error” the bottom line is you make to many darn errors and comparing the EU Playstation store to Americas It looks like its unwanted cousin. Seriously. Get your act together. Im tired of being treated like a 3rd class citizen.


I’ll have a bit of derrick and Joe danger thank you, swell as the other goodies on PS+. Gosh I wish I got chance to play all of these games on my overflowing HDD.


Hey, are the DLCs included in AC Complete Pack for 59,99€ or not? It would be great if they were included :)


You can stop asking for CS:GO. It’s not coming to PSN Europe at all.

Closure, Dyad, CS:GO, Retro City Rampage, The Walking Dead episode 4…
I know what I’m NOT going to buy next-gen.

does anyone no (you the readers) how to get MOH 1/2 working on a uk vita iv tried the ps3 to vita but no luck and paid for them as all the vids on youtube showed it working really need a fps on my vita and MOH 1 has offline bots to much fun. Pl pl pl someone is there a way apart from hacking my vita and ps3 cuz then all games ps3 to work but i dont agree with it thanx for any help

This would be a half decent update if it wasn’t for the MIA content.



I know this is not your fault but I can’t help but be angry, three times in a row is beyond a joke. SCEE’s QA processes need to be REVIEWED and streamlined to stop these constant delays. Its no good just acknowledging the problem something needs to be done!


Dear Jawad and Store Team,

In 2012 it’s not a big deal, to check the news in the internet and european PlayStation user are not full retarr, so we can visit the US Blog and check the US Store update post. So do you think, the european users won’t notice that, we don’t get:
– Walking Dead Ep. 4
– Retro City Rampage
…and Counter Strike:GO?
These delays are sad, but there is a bigger problem: why don’t you write a single word about it, especially this popular titles? Just one sentence: “Sorry guys, de WD is delay until 10.17/10.25/12.25/etc”. Try it, and I bet, there will be less complaining comments!

xscapeguy2007 10 October, 2012 @ 15:46

Can you please tell me if you are still adding SOTN i was really looking forward to this. Let us know please!


Doctor who vita will that be in the cross buy deal?

The AC bundle also includes AC1, I think.

However, the AC2 GOTY ‘Essentials’ edition already on the store is £14.99, whats the difference between that and the ‘complete’ edition AC2 at £15.99?


What happened to Mechromancer for Borderlands 2? Was looking forward to this today. Any idea when will be available?


Being looked at right now.


There used to be a FAQ section at the top of the update. Usually outlining questions to what the guys know for a fact we’re going to ask about. Where has it gone?

Oh, I know. Someone thought: “You know what we shouldn’t do? We should HIGHLIGHT the things we know we missed. Let the peons ask about it in the comments below the post where we MIGHT reply.”

This is why you RARELY see the original post updated after WE call out your mistakes; usually it’s left alone with all its glorious inaccuracies.

Fred, please, we’re not stupid. Stop treating us like we are.

luckythedog24 10 October, 2012 @ 15:51

Jawad You better reply. not threatening. Advising. Because for every comment you ignore and for every piece of backlash and hatred you get, that’s one step closer to you losing your job.


“You know what we shouldn’t do? We should HIGHLIGHT the things we know we missed. Let the peons ask about it in the comments below the post where we MIGHT reply.”

Apologies, SHOULDN’T highlight.


I’m quite surprised that Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock Vita isn’t free for PS3 owners, though now I suppose it makes sense that no one official ever answered my question about it.
After all the problems with the PS3 version and the crazy delay on this one though, you’d think they would have considered at least a discount for owners of the original. Ah well. Already got the PS3 one, and from what I’ve seen it’s the better version visually at least. No great loss for me.

chrisandsheva 10 October, 2012 @ 15:53

Why did i have to read the previous posts, i ‘was’ going to go elsewhere, But.. who the .. does mr ‘we are ENTITLED’ think he/she is ?, so basically 99% of the people who post here are just spoilt brats. nice to know, have read some ‘funny’ comments b4 but that has to be amongst the best.. SOME people, just unbeliavable.
what next, get the ‘terrible grammar’ you have, card out, like most sce-df people ‘seem’ to use.

Absolute joke we still dont have CS:GO on the store and very annoying we have to wait for Walking Dead aswell.

another horrible and empty update i doubt anything is gonna improve gonna be fun 2 see how much fail is gonna be producted in the next few month. considering fred said it would improve in the next 2 months gonna be curious 2 see if that’s gonna be another lie like the survey for more countries.
No walking dead 4
No Youtube APP
No Symphony of the Night

only thing they do have enough at SCEE
Yes horrible customer service’s
Yes new feature’s that are U.K only
Yes horrible metadata crap that isen’t even needed for games cause they are all in english
Yes and very overpriced store


Can you please look at bringing Chrono Trigger, Chrono Chross and Xenogears PSOne Classics to PSN over here please?
Even if they are the US Import versions, as long as they are playable on Vita that would be amazing.

hitman_stephen 10 October, 2012 @ 15:55

COULD NOT FIND DOCTOR WHO ETERNITY CLOCK VITA in the shops, is it a psn exclusive?


I’ve heard some crazy things over the past few weeks regarding fan loyalty to SONY and its related Publishers and partners such include;

Taking Bethseda to court over fake advertising
Boycotting all Bethseda products from now on
Noone will buy the PS4 when it’s released because of the poorness of SONY

Everyone of these [CENSORED]. What people tend to forget is that these are games ! They are not essential they are not life enhancing, they are not needed, they are not entitled to you, they are not quintessential.

They are instead a form of entertainment like TV, Books or Films and no one bullshits when I film is delayed, when a book is delayed or when a TV show is delayed.

The people demanding these games such as CS:GO, The Walking Dead, Spyro etc seriously need to weigh up what actually matters in life. I like playing games as much as the next guy, maybe more …. The difference is I remember that I don’t depend on them to have a good time


Got both bulletstorm and res5 gold so plus can do one

Telltale can also do one

(with Acrobatic Killer Pack pre-order bonus)

amazon why pay more! ps store should be closed down!



Woe betide us SCEE customers for expecting release day parity with EVERYONE else in the world, its not just done is it?!


Hi Jawad.

When I enter the RE6 avatars it says ‘No Content’.


Will look into it.

Trying to get the Resi 6 avatars but when I click on it it say’s “No content was found”.

Fix please?

where is the Mechromancer for BL2? everywhere else got it yesterday


Where are the Resident Evil 6 avatars? When I went to look at them it said no content found. Will this be updated later. Everything else seems to be on the store.

To All The Moaners,

How can something with no release date be delayed?

Retro City and Walking Dead are not late, they haven’t had a confirmed date, it’s just impatience by the people who are complaining, if it came out early and was full of bugs and poorly localised, you would be complaining about how we get bad versions.

I’m happy to wait, have LBP Vita, many PSOne Classics, and all the PS+ Games to work my way through, now Bulletstorm too.

I for one, am an extremely happy gamer!

Thanks Jawad and SCEE!

Forgot to say, when or will we have Tekken avatars?

Was hoping for Tag 2 ones, or at least the Street Fighter x Tekken ones?

So, no walking dead ep 4, and where the hell is Mass Effect 3 Retaliation ? SCEE’s incompetence and lack of respect is starting to get on my nerves.

Hey Jawad

Assassin’s Creed Complete Pack
Price: £47.99/€59.99

contain the assassin’s creed 1-2 etc complete packs?
As in ALL DLC included ??

Plz say yes


The complete pack has ACI, II, Brotherhood, Revelations and the respective game’s DLC, too.


unfair price discrimination!

Tekken 3 soundtrack? You tease Namco. Although I will buy this :3

Awesome update (getting Derrick), but Burn the Rope (Vita) isn’t there when it was supposed to come today, does that game suffered?

WildRushSykes 10 October, 2012 @ 16:01

Assassin’s Creed Revelations Complete Pack
Price: £15.99/€19.99
PEGI: 18
Availability: Not available in Turkey
File Size: 10GB

Thats funny as its £31.99 on the store lmao and no dishonored preorder


Believe me, I am not laughing at these errors…

suffered a delay* @To my previous comment


Hi Jawad!

I was wondering if we Weill be able to pre-order Need For Speed Most Wanted anytime soon? It was recently announced but those were coming from SCEA. Would SCEE be joining the party? I’m interested in Pre-Ordering due to the incentives (bonus cars).

(I was campaigning for a long time to Fredd about Borderlands 2, and that finally happened, but of course I’m not sure if my voice was heard or if it had an bearing on the outcome…but I really want to get my Pre-Order for NFS in!)




Thanks for the Resident Evil 6 Avatars ! :)

But where’s the RE6 – Ada Avatar ? :(

Iltapalanyymi_ 10 October, 2012 @ 16:03

oh no! when is devil may cry hd collection coming to eu ps store?


After the week of a good update it back to the normal service resumes crap service by SCEE you be glad to know that SCEA gets DMC-HD collection.

So much for trying to do our best sending email to users you can’t do nothing right just resign bigwigs. Your a disgrace. :(

@TAL2008TAL RCR full of bugs? IS ALREADY RELASED ON US. With people like you no way we can have a decent service.

Ok, make some sort of filter on download list content, it is hard for me to find anything now :D

chrisandsheva 10 October, 2012 @ 16:05

hahaha… well IF you looked at it that way, ie ‘no release date equells no delay’, then yeah, i guess we ARE all just ‘moaners’, though, would it be ok if people ‘moaned’ about NOT having a release date, confirmed or not ?..

Strange that Walking Dead Ep4 is out in all the other territories on all the other systems except for… you guessed EU PS3 users. Would say I’m shocked but its what I’ve come to expect of you guys now! And still no DYAD!!!


160 agreed , my download list is massive, why keep demos in the list, a filter is a great idea, Games, plus content , Demos, themes , avatars , other. something like that =)


are you guys even trying 2 make european ps1 games and psp games VITA compatible or are you guys just gonna ignore that?
cause U>S keeps getting more ps1 classics added with VITA support yet SCEE hasen’t even added anything new 2 PSvita from the older games.



Retro City and Walking Dead are not late.

If something comes out on ALL OTHER PLATFORMS IN ALL OTHER REGIONS other than PS3 SCEE, it’s late by inference.

Digital distribution is supposed to be global. There was also a commitment made by SCEUK when people signed up for the season pass.

If they had said: “Oh, by the way, we can’t promise the episodes will come out at the same time as for everyone else. In fact, it will probably come out in Europe on the PS3 weeks after everywhere else” do you think anyone in their right mind would have signed up?

Nice update Jawad xD downloading the bulletstorm now xP been dying to get this but i gotta ask due to borderlands going on free for plus members is there any rumours or anything about if plus members will get borderlands2 for free sometime as i loved the first one x3

SiborgSimoSctlnd 10 October, 2012 @ 16:09


No you aren’t right. You just listen to IGN podcasts too much.

Customers are entitled to explanations. Customers are entitled to the same products world over.



I know I moan but I feel I have to because this is just not good enough, CS:GO (even though I don’t want it!) is another thats just getting silly now as its more than 2 months, say hello to another Auditorum HD it seems.


1. Bioshock 2 has been on the store ages I’ve bought it along with the complete edition.

2. I will not be renewing plus putting games on there for free i.e RE5 that I’ve already downloaded doesn’t interest me its just a sign of things to come for the vita.

3. I want to see CS:GO no excuse now!!! US have been enjoying it for weeks and my friends over on the XBOX, and now delay walking dead episode 4 nice one SCEE.
