First up, Assassin’s Creed III eagle dives onto PlayStation Store this week. A new game engine, a new assassin and a new time period; experience the biggest Assassin’s Creed yet. Take control of Connor and his expanded arsenal in 18th-Century North America in an epic war for independence.

OkamiHD_FeaturedImage_PVWIMG

Capcom’s beautiful Okami HD finally releases today, too. Originally released on PlayStation 2, Okami’s pretty visuals have been made prettier, now with additional Move support for a new way to experience this gem of a game.

Spotlight_NeedForSpeedMostWanted_PVWIMG

To be Most Wanted, you’ll need to outrun the cops, outdrive your friends, and outsmart your rivals. With a relentless police force gunning to take you down, you’ll need to make split second decisions. Use the open world to your advantage to find hiding spots, hit jumps and earn new vehicles to keep you one step ahead.

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation heads to PS Vita today too. The year is 1765. As the events leading up to the American Revolution heat up in the North, Spanish forces plan to take control of Louisiana in the South…

There’s also a demo for visual novel Virtue’s Last Reward, Silent Hill Book of Memories and brain teaser Smart As…, among others.

See below for a full list of content this week and a have great week gaming!

Hi Jawad

Please Answer

1. Any update on Crash Bash making it on the store?, if so will it be released this year and will it be the PAL version?

2. Now that you’re in regular contact with Telltale games, any updates on getting Wallace and Gromits grand adventures? I have tried contacting them, your my last hope, please ask them for it, pretty please with a cherry on top.

3. Lastly any updates on Monster House a PS2 Classic? THQ are good with PS2 Classics, have you asked them to submit this particular title? Is there any chance we can get it soon?

Many Thanks

Issues updating the store last week aside, I am finding it VERY difficult to find the new weekly content in the revised store design.

PLEASE can you re-instate a “New This Week” section ?

Where is Retro City Rampage?!

3.1

It’s coming very soon. The developer will hopefully be appearing on the Blog in the next week or so to provide an update and answer any questions on the game, so please stay tuned.

@ Jawad:

Hi there! Excuse me if I’m reposting last week’s comment, but I couldn’t find you. Anyway, guess who’s back for some Spyro-related questions!

Actually, I kind of know that you guys are having issues with Spyro, so, given you liked last week’s drawing, I thought it’d be nice of me to give you guys a further (drawn) encouragement. Send this to the QA guys!

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/EncouragementForSCEE_again_Spyro_byAlexPSN89_small_1489.JPG

Any news at all about the purple dragon? :) The wait is getting harder and harder each week. I hope we’ll get to wander the Dragon Realms again before 2013 (eight weeks should be fair game, there’s plenty of time… right?).

Oh, and I almost forgot. Happy Halloween!

4.1

Lovely drawing.

Sadly we are running into a few issues so Spyro won’t be showing today. We’re progressing with it, however. When I have more news to share I’ll let you guys know.

It’s October 31st, 2012… where is Retro City Rampage? Wasn’t it supposed to finally come out today?

5.1

As mentioned above, it’s coming very soon. The developer will hopefully be appearing on the Blog in the next week or so to provide an update and answer any questions on the game, so please stay tuned.

EternalChaos72 31 October, 2012 @ 15:04

jawad what avatars do we get today?

6.1

A range from Disgaea, Dragon’s Dogma and more!

hi great update great work :) just one question. When will tekken 4 be on the psn here in europe or can you please request it thanks jawad :)

Hey this looks like a great update, if the new store wasn’t completely broken we could actually find that stuff.

Hey Jawad! Awesome update this week! Really wanna get my hands on NFS!

But, as always, what’s the status on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PSOne Classics?

9.1

No update as of yet, sorry.

The game will be available to download from October 9 in North America, with a European release date to follow later this month.

It’s the last day of the month and no explanation….

Need for Speed Most Wanted- £39.99/€49.99

THAT is the most [DELETED] price I have ever seen. $39.99 on US store.

Any idea when we might see the Netflix app for Vita on the EU store?

Hell-Raiser-85 31 October, 2012 @ 15:04
13

Any news on Retro City Rampage & CS?

Silver-Seraphim 31 October, 2012 @ 15:05
14

Still disappointed there’s no PS + Okami discount :(

15

Hello XY,

Please answer:

1, The Linger in Shadows is part of the Halloween Sale, but I can’t find at the Store. Please fix it, I want to buy it! Thanks!
2, EU Plus users should get more Full Game Trial content, for example: US user’s can try the new Medal of Honor and Need for Speed.
3, The Borderlands and Just Cause 2 should be changed to 2 new game for the PS Plus IGC, any news about this?

Thanks!

Cheers!

Hello SCEE!
This will be your top priorities this week:

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Fixing every Monkeypawgame so they run in the correct speed on the ps3!

Bummer, i was expecting Under Defeat HD to be sold for €29.99, not €39.99 :(

Wow @ £39.99 for PS Vita games; With scarce space on PS Vita memory cards, and the price of said cards – that’s a lot of money to spend to fill your card, when if you shop around you can buy the cartridge for less than £30.
Tiny bit disappointing.

Last day of October, and short of the word “Soon” – we’ve still not been given any information regarding PS Vita Plus. (IGC etc).

Hoping, stupidly probably haha, for an update today that says PSV+ goes live on the 7th November with these games: (X, Y, Z). ETC.

19

Hey Jawad!

I was checking the Street Fighter x Tekken DLC in the store and noticed that the Color Palette Add-on 2 (labeled “free”, even though I downloaded it before) can’t be downloaded. It returns an error when it’s added to the basket (says it’s not available right now).

It’s nothing really important, but I just thought you should know about this issue ;).

20

Also, when does SEGA lower the price of the “Battle DLC” for Sonic Adventure 2? It costs €4,49 now, while it’s $2,99 in North America. It’s almost twice as expensive here, but it’s the exact same content? Why?

21

Any news on Vice City or Dark Cloud as PS2 Classics?

22

@PlayToy_17 you ask the same bloody thing every week, and yet you get the same response, so stop asking!

Same with Assassin’s Creed:Liberation-£39.99/€44.99. $35.99 on US store.

Please explain these prices!!!

Is the Planets Under Attack demo ever going to be released? (was announced last week)

Aside of that, good update there.

24.1

Possibly. The full game is out in a few weeks.

Damn, wish I didn’t buy the WWE DLC last week :( Feel like an idiot now!

26

i am sick to death of the treatment eu ps3 owners get !
we get nothing and if we do its months after the yanks where is retro city rampage ?????

27

@Jawad
Hello ;)
Any chances for XCOM from PS1 as a classic for VITA and PS3?

Pathetic prices, lackluster content and half baked management. SCEE are a complete and total disgrace.

29

Closure ? (already on US store & with discount)
Dokuro ? (already weeks on JPN store…)

feedback appreciated, regards

The price differences between NFS:MV Vita and AC3:L on the US and EU stores is shocking. (Yes I know you guys can’t control 3rd parties, but surely you can influence.)

31

Nothing for ps+ Members where is our 4th game for this month or a discount for Okami HD or somthing

Still no RCR or CS:GO? Ah well. Would buy RCR from US Store, but I want it on my Vita.

FlyingUberHuzo 31 October, 2012 @ 15:07
33

Can’t wait for Okami HD! :)

GenocideHeart 31 October, 2012 @ 15:07
34

Hi Jawad,

will we be getting Romance of the 3 Kingdoms IX, Nobunaga’s Ambition, the .Hack//G.U. series and Malice as PS2 classics? Also, where in blazes is Retro City Rampage?

Thanks for the time!

RETRO CITY RAMPAGE?????????

GOOD JOB!

36

I still can’t see half of last week’s updates – such as the Xcom Elite Soldier Pack.

Where is the “new this week” category?

whats the file size for okami hd and under defeat hd please?

38

Please give me a logical explanation for this:

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation
Price: £39.99/€44.99

Need for Speed Most Wanted
Price: £39.99/€49.99

So 45 euros = 50 euros? Money is worthless?

Hmmm Need for speed most wanted at £59.99… add another £2 and I could buy 2 copies for that much at my local store lol.

2nd though I agree with Topov81 , The new store looks awesome but navigating the Aircraft taxi ways at Heathrow airport is less confusing hehe :)

40

“Okami HD finally releases today […] now with additional Move support for a new way to experience this gem of a game.”

You keep using these words. How is the experience with Move support “new”? To be more specific, how is it different from the experience on the Wii that was released well over four years ago, that costs about £6 than your PSN version?

41

Still no Retro City Rampage? Looks like the “later this month” comment is out the window then.
Think I’m just gonna pass on it at this rate.

@BluSpykz they said Vita PS+ info would be in the first November PS+ notes. That would either be today or next Wednesday.

MP_is_for_Chumps 31 October, 2012 @ 15:09
42

Hey there, my corporate lacky friends,

…do you know what is more irritating than that un-removable singstar advertisement?

No, its not the un-removable Plus advertisement, nor the un-removable Netflix, iplayer or Music Unlimited advertisements, it is:

*drum roll*

The new playstation store – yes, that jumbled up, iphone-app wannabe mess that cant even function properly on PS3’s RAM-lacking & outdated operating system.

Please, for the love of simple online purchasing, give us users the CHOICE to use the original, far more user friendly, web-only playstation store.

– Thank you and good day.

43

Hi Jawad,

I’ve basically one thing to raise with you. That Assassin’s Creed sale has not went as planned. Basically most items have been uploaded and/or discounted as they were described, but the ‘Lost Archive’ still hasn’t had that additional 10% Plus discount. Could you see what the problem is here? I’d very much like to pick up that bit of dlc.

Do you have any idea what games will be featured on Plus for PS Vita?

Cool. I was wondering about Okami HD only last week. Missed it on PS2.

Retro city rampage for gods sake, what is happening???????

A quick question, are we getting Guilty Gear XX Accent Core + next week or sometime in the near future? And will it be available for most countries if that is the case?

Jawad, in new store, where is Metal Gear Solid 4 Database?

Okami is tempting. Shame we don’t get ZOE for another month.

So much for Retro City Rampage coming out in October, and still no news of Jet Set Radio. What are Sega doing to it??

I’m starting to really regret putting my Vita on an EU account – I foolishly believed all the talk of eliminating release schedule differences, but it’s gotten worse, not better. :(

“WWE 13 Fan Axxess – 50% discount, one week”

Guess that’s what I get for buying it early :-(

50

Can’t wait to get Okami Hd. Yay. I’ll hopefully get it tomorrow when my psn card gets here in the post. Happy Halloween every one. :)

And still no Counter-Strike: GO and Retro City Rampage… seriously? Will we get CS:GO at all? Congratulations SCEE.

52

what’s novembers plus content??? apart from crysis 2

I’m all in favor of digital distribution of games, but please talk some sense into developers pretty please, as in: if anything digital copies of games should cost LESS than retail versions, not more!!!!!!

54

Just remembered: do you know what state Tomba! is at? I’m hoping it’ll get properly sorted ASAP, and working on Vita.

Id be embarrassed posting this, what with NFS being £60

56

I’m devastated there’s a psplus discount on the WWE13 season pass….

since ive already bought it doh!!!!!

AC III why not available in Turkey ?

58

Rubbish update – here we are 8 weeks from Xmas and no demos.

supersmith2500 31 October, 2012 @ 15:12
59

Nothing but DLC this DLC that. -_-
Also most games don’t come until Friday on there.

What a dull update. Can you please tell VBlank and D3 what is going on with RCR? 3 weeks and still no sign and it looks like it’s going to suffer the same fate as CS:GO and by the time CS:GO is out. People will play Black Ops II over CS:GO.

I’m getting sick of constant delays and overpriced digital games. Seriously what’s with the Store team now? >:(

smileygeek123 31 October, 2012 @ 15:13

hi Jawad

i bought a ps store wallet card for when retro city rampage came out. Now its 3 weeks ago and you promised it would be released in this month

so here is my question. will the game come out soon or should i give steam my money?

please reply.

Hi Jawad

Any PS+ update this week?

Any Vita PS+ info yet?

Thank you =)

62

Retro City Rampage will be really retro when released I guess.

63

The new store is awful. Whoever thought this mess was a good idea needs to rethink it.

Is there no PSN Plus freebies this week? Thought there was gonna be.

64

any news when playstation mobile will come out to saudi arabia ?

65

@Hellscovern We’re not supposed to get new PS+ games every month…
We get one “game of the month” which is uploaded for the first PS+ update of the month and 2 of the “instant game collection” games are cycled out every 3 weeks… (or that was the details that were given out)

Actually looking it up, the last 2 games that were cycle in/out was 3 weeks ago. I guess it’ll probably be 4 weeks this time unless if there’s a PS+ update posted later.

66

Like I said in the Okami-post…

Okami is amazing! However, I won’t be buying this version. Why? Because it’s a full-fledged game, yet it is not available on Blu-ray Disc in Europe or North America.

Japan offers the game on Blu-ray Disc. And yes, that game is twice as expensive as buying the digital version through PSN, and the language is Japanese only, but I don’t mind. I just want to have the game in my hands, so that it feels like MY game. Not something I just rented. Especially with a game like Okami, which has such a beautiful artistical style, it’s just a crime not to have it on disc.

So sorry Sony/Capcom. Make it available on Blu-ray Disc in Europe and I’ll buy it again! End that’s coming from someone who owns the PS2 version already, AND is going to import the Japanese disc-based version. Getting me to spend my money isn’t difficult. You just have to make your games available on disc…

Pretty random question, but will we ever get Bloody Roar 2 like the US store? Thanks.

68

Guys! Darksders 2 season pass holders can’t download The Abyssal Forge DLC, please, look into the issue :(

Carnivius_Prime 31 October, 2012 @ 15:14
69

le sigh. Still no Retro City Rampage so I’ll be saving my monies til whenever that comes out…

70

devastated about the WWE discount….

considering ive bought it already (last night in fact!),,,

real disappointed in that

71

LEGO The Lord of the Rings (PS3/PS VITA)?

Jawad, could you guys put the Virtue’s Last Reward Demo in the PS+ section of the German PlayStation Store, please? Worked perfectly with the Silent Hill PSVita Demo. Thank you in advance!

73

Jawed – can you PLEASE tell me if theirs plans for Black Ops 2 to be released digitally and if so, when ?

A_Nonny_Moose 31 October, 2012 @ 15:15
74

There are still some items missing from last week’s update. The DLC bundles for Tekken Tag 2 and DOA5 aren’t there anymore. The individual packs are available, but the bundles have vanished.

There’s also the problem with the Tokyo Jungle DLC mega pack not including the businessman.

Also, I must echo the confusion over the Vita pricing for AC3:L. $36 to £40 is an even more ridiculous mark up than usual.

half price WWE fan axxess for me, hurry up Friday. I’d spend the saving on singstar songs but I never got the icon during the update :P

I stopped being disheartened by the lack of PlayStation Mobile in my country as a Sony customer and started being disheartened as a developer. We’re talking about a situation where people devote (or at least are willing to devote) their time to learn the platform and nobody can give a straight answer if they’re about to waste their time or not. I think I’ll sell my Vita, at least I won’t have to worry about the games I’m denied to spend money on.

supersmith2500 31 October, 2012 @ 15:16

Wow compared to the US Plus, they got 4 discounts on four games while us just get WWE Fan Axxess. Downright embarrassing SCEE.

Some store feedback,

Currently it is near impossible to find certain DLC on the store without great effort, where the old store let you go to add-ons and search through a few alphabetically grouped lists, the new one does not.

Instead we now get menus like ‘map packs’ etc, only a lot of DLC doesn’t fit under those menus and fits under the ‘All add-ons’ which has over 7039 items, and due to random naming of many using the A-Z sort option is no use, try it, Tiger Woods is the second bunch of items, followed by Rockband stuff.

Searching through over 7000 items manually is not good design. The ‘search’ feature is also useless for many items and fails to list items I know are on the store somewhere, despite searching correctly, for entire names or for single words.

I do not care aout the new visual design, but can we please get the previous stores menu system back, so we can pick an ‘A-C’ menu for DLC and all games that start with letters A-C have their DLC within it, same for D-F an...

I do not care aout the new visual design, but can we please get the previous stores menu system back, so we can pick an ‘A-C’ menu for DLC and all games that start with letters A-C have their DLC within it, same for D-F and so on.

Another amazing store update, full of games that are overpriced and stuff that will go wrong.
Take some chips and a drink and sit back to see the sht hit the fan.

Yeah the pricing on those two Vita games is pretty shocking, was looking at picking up NFS for my memory card, but not at that price. As others mention you can pick up the retail copy cheaper and have a resale value. Crazy pricing :(

81

hmm its like sony dont want my money anymore, nowt for me again

82

Cracking update this week!

Bin looking forward to NFS on Vita since it was announced…

I’ve had £35 saved on my psn account for months specifically for it & then I saw the price…

Gutted I now cant afford it, I should’ve saved the money & got the PS3 or PC version but now I cant do that either because the money is stuck on my psn account…

psn card, £50
Couple of Escape Plan DLC’s & some other bits & bobs, £14
the feeling you get when the game you’ve been waiting for is more expensive than a full retail version for PS3 & now cant afford it?

PRICELESS…

Sorry, DEVEASTATING

83

No avatars today? C’mon – it’s hilarious! You can’t even bring over to us such small things as avatars!!!

84

Blah blah boo hoo where’s this where’s that stop moaning about it. Sony don’t care about the fans they just want to count there big pile of money

85

especially at those prices, its like games are going up a tenner every month

Why does AC:Liberation cost 36$ in the US and 45€ (58$) in Europe? I understand that they usually just exchage the currency symbol and I am more or less fine with that but raising the number before it is just terrible practice.

Is the version at least the same in all European stores or will the German version run in French and German only as did Unit 13, in which case I would have to reasosn to not buy the game, although I would really like to.

87

Thanks for the update! :D

It´s there any chance to Black Ops 2 going Day 1 on PSN? Thanks again!

For people asking about Plus updates, it’s still October, and we’ve had our October content. Plus will update next week, on the first update of the new month, just like always.

no more sale items. :(

Only question I have is… Spyro? Ha ha

Other than that, really suprised/happy to see virtue’s last reward demo, cant wait for it! Brilliant to release on halloween too!

91

When digital distribution was announced to the world the idea was that – DIGITAL SHOULD COST SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN RETAIL

With no physical product to sell where does the cost come from?

Also what ever happened to cross buy? If Assassins Creed and Need for Speed were priced as is BUT included both PS3 & VITA versions I would be tempted.

High prices and slow releases should be dealt with rather than a store redesign.

last week the update on the store was a mess – I didn’t even have any of the new items until 10pm and then the actual item I wanted to buy wasn’t available or accessible until Friday (Tokyo Jungle dlc)

there are still items in the sale section that do not have the correct prices like Castlevania Lord of Shadows well the impulse to buy the dlc has passed

please fix the store it is a nightmare to navigate, also the singstar icon on the xmb please remove this

and stop charging Europe more for games than are charged in the US – call it price gouging, monopoly, extortion – its all the same this is how your European customers see it

What are the chances of getting Rockstar Table Tennis on psn?

Seems like PS+ feature FULL GAME TRIAL is dead for EU users. I was hoping for something excited for Plus, well because this month hasnt ended yet but apart from Crysis 2 news this week’s update is really poor.
P.S
You guys dont even have a single clip of gameplay of NFS MW Vita version.. sigh…

95

Tokyo Jungle Business Man DLC not working for me also.

Any one else had problems there?

ElectricRoses 31 October, 2012 @ 15:21
96

I agree with Topov81’s comment completely…

“Issues updating the store last week aside, I am finding it VERY difficult to find the new weekly content in the revised store design.
PLEASE can you re-instate a “New This Week” section ?”

I think a new this week section with all video game related updates should be easier to find, with the newest content viewed first by default.

97

Do we know about the plus content for Vita for November yet?
Do we have a data for Retro city rampage.
Do we have a date for ragnarok odyssey on the vita
Why do you want people to buy hard copies of games and not digital ones
i am tempted to get black ops on hard copy as i am sure you will charge loads for it digitally for no reason.
many thanks

Are the Dead Or Alive 5 DLC going to be in a bundle again? I got stung last time as they were sold as a cheaper bundle the following week which is a disgraceful practice if you ask me, they must know they’re going to do this the following week, they should be up as a bundle at the same time like on the US store.

Probably not going to get an answer, but still I’ll ask.
Why no Russian language Russian version of Assassin’s Creed 3 in Store. Its exists if you buy game on Blu-ray. But why Sony (or Ubisoft) didn’t put it in Russian PSN Store version? There are many other languages in the game, not just english, but no Russian. We pay the same amount of money as if you buy it in local game store with the Russian translation.

Oooh SCEE you so funny! Dem crazy prices!!

Hmm, the only thing for plus users this week is a discount on WWE: somethingsomething? That’s too bad.

Anyway, will there be a “New this week” section added to the Store, it’s awkward trying to find stuff as it is. Maybe also one for the Plus section?

@82 we can only envy US+ users, they have them over 9000.

Any news on Jet Set Radio for the Vita?

104

Please post the Vita Demo for Germany in the Plus Section, thanks

Assassin Creed is to expensive… Retail here 55 Euro.

Retro City? Counter Strike?

105

God what a pathetic store update no Ps1 classics you fail to deliver sypro you often said october soon, soon today is the last day of october.

no ps2 classics just 4 big titles that overprice while SCEA gets more discounts yesterday plus a PSP RPG their got 3 RE6 DLC we got Nothing, shuhei knows nothing about No partially what so ever.

105.1

I never confirmed October as a definite, only that was the current hopeful plan. It has slipped but we’re aiming to get it out as soon as possible.

Thinking of picking up smart as just wondering how much space i need on my vita memory card only have 1 gig left. What is intresting is that the digital version of most wanted is £59.99/69.99 euros when i’ve pre-ordered the retail version of the limited edition up for £30.

107

extremly poor on the plus side of store update again where is cs:go why is europe with out it

108

i know this is probably going to sound like a really stupid question, but I don’t know so I must;

What is WWE13 Fan Axxess discount for? is it 50% of dlc for the game, 50% of the game at launch or something else?

One other thing, why is there always so much rage on this blog? Talk about 1st world problems and being ungrateful. It seems greed is the biggest issue nevermind late subissions and pricing.

MordecaiHunter 31 October, 2012 @ 15:26

Thats why i Never Buy Games From E.A and if i do there second hand, Bunch of greedy Ba$tard$

£60 for NFS, Shame on the people who will buy this at that price

young_hastings 31 October, 2012 @ 15:26
110

i hate comin here just to troll but do ye guys realise that assassins creed can be bought brand new in stores for 10-15 euro cheaper than its being sold for on the store? surely it should be the other way around as all ye have to pay for is the bandwidth for me to download the game? i know psn has been great for prices lately but there is still a lot of pricing issues ye need to address

111

Hold up a second, £40 for Liberation? That’s the equivalent of $60, yet them Americans are only having to pay $36. Anyone who purchases Lib from the EU store is a mug

WWE ’13 AVATARS???? Come on OMG!!

Whirlwind-frost 31 October, 2012 @ 15:27

Can you please add a link to each game’s website or something when you post these “head’s ups”. Every time I’m interested in a game, I click the picture only to be taken to nowhere in particular, which seems against the spirit of the World-Wide Web.

ElectricRoses 31 October, 2012 @ 15:28
117

Also I just noticed from a previous announcement you actually designed the new layout based on feedback? Really? Was the feedback along the lines of “omg the store is just too easy to navigate I really want more of a challenge when trying to buy new things!!” Because seriously… I’m finding it a real chore to look around. That aside, I’m happy about the DOA5 DLC but I’m hoping character pack 1 is supposed to say “special set 2” or something along those lines… because there is supposed to be a pack called that today.

Man SCEE really blowed it.Here we have an amazing update for PSVITA but then you just have to destroy it by OVERPRICING the games. Smart as is the only one with an okey price.

119

Very little content again, and the store is a complete mess functionally.

Looks like Sony will have a non profitable Christmas this year.

The 50% discount on WWE 13 Fan Axxess for Plus members is brilliant. I’m glad I waited and didnt buy it last week now. A bit harsh on any Plus subscriber that has already bought it for the full £11.99 though.

121

Why oh why Why oh why Why oh why Why oh why Why oh why Why oh why Why oh why are digital games damn expensive!? There is no logic at all to it!

Hi Jawad,

Just FYI, clicked on advert for BT Infinity at the top of blog, and BAM! xbox everywhere :)

Thats real sell out if your charging them for the addspace.

Otherwise, Possibly looking at Okami.
Really want under defeat… but is it really worth that price for a arcade shooter?

agree with others please add abutton in the store wich will display all new content released for the week,as its too much work browsing all categories. I Really hope you can fix that?

124

And OF COURSE, we fail to get the Smart As demo -_- Which means we probably won’t see it for a few years, or never, like the LBP Vita demo! Which surprises me considering it’s a game made in the EU :/

Please remove or give as the option to remove the SingStar Icon!

CrimsonSamurai 31 October, 2012 @ 15:32

Every week I come on here to see what fresh mistakes Sony Europe have made this week, and once again with missing prices on the update (monkeyball) muddled information and the same questions getting asked week after week with out reply I guess this week is no different. I have a soulution SACK EVERY MEMBER OF THE EUROPE SONY TEAM GIVE THE WAGES TO THE USA TEAM THEN MAYBA WE CAN GET THE SAME RELIABLE SERVICE THEY HAVE… each week they have little to no complaints, content listed correctly, A STORE THAT WORKS (please go back to the old store as 99% of users HATE IT!!! and NO FRIGGIN SINGSTAR LOGO on the XMB (again 99% of users DONT WANT IT). Also just a heads up you seem to have forgotten about a certain console you released a while ago called a PSVITA stop with the shovel ware and release some original games apart from AS Liberation. I know Jawad Ashraf and the rest of the team will ignore this but sometimes its could to get it off your chest and maybe this will start a EUROPEAN REVO...

I demand more Avatars!

128

Oh ppl have small minds SCEE fred says plus update be 31 october its today so where is it or are we waiting for SCEA to wake up 1st and post copy/paste together.

Please give us more trials to the new games! USA plus got the new need for speed!

You_Better_Hide 31 October, 2012 @ 15:35
130

@ Jawad – What? No demo for NFS on either console, well might not Get it then, like to see how it is compared to the last NFS, also,.when is PS+ coming to the vita, thought you guys said November…

BANDITEN-SWEDEN 31 October, 2012 @ 15:36
131

where Is CS:GO ???
Where Is SCEE ???

@Malik7866 – It’s 50% off Fan Axxess which should be £11.99 full price. It gets you all the DLC for a one off price so if you buy it any DLC they release for it will show up at Zero in the shop part of WWE 13. The 50% off is a really good saving considering all the DLC that will be released for it this year.

133

commet of the week goes to……..

Hold up a second, £40 for Liberation? That’s the equivalent of $60, yet them Americans are only having to pay $36. Anyone who purchases Lib from the EU store is a mug

i totally agree. :D

129# They said November but not when in November.

135

Any news when playstation mobile will come out to Qatar

You_Better_Hide 31 October, 2012 @ 15:38
136

Also, bit slack guys… Assassins creed 3 been out for 2 days… Behind much?! You know we are a day in front of EU, so yeah why you make us wait that extra one to two days to release with EU is a mystery to me. Lost sales.

137

what i really want is singstar, cant find it anywhere… oh wait, no, found it thanks!

So they learned that a shiny (and halfways functional) store helps to improve sales. Next lesson: Learn how prices impact sales.

I’m sorry, but I could only laugh when I saw that they demand 40€ for a game like Under Defeat.

Did nobody register the transition of the games market? F2P, cheap mobile and social games? Of course the console market share must shrink with such crazy prices.

140

The usual (CENSORED) then? no halloween content for PLUS? oh and LOL 59.99 for NFS what crap was EA smoking when they set that price? typical EA cash cows $$$ still i bet you’ll still get some idiot who will buy it

*sigh*
And once again in moderation. What was the bad word this time?

Either you rethink the filter list, tell me what words are considered to ban worthy or I’ll have to flood the blog with test comments till I found it out on my own. What approach would you prefer Fred?

142

Great update.

Any chance of resident evil 2 for Vita? Maybe Xcom as a classic for PS1.
Many thanks again.

143

The Virtues Last Reward Demo is hands down the worst demo I have ever played, it involves reading text for five minutes and doing nothing more than hitting the X button, what a horrible representation of a game, and before anyone (CENSORED) I fully understand its a txt adventure with many other elements, but this demo is a masterclass in how not to get people interested in your game…. Its completely pointless, go watch a trailer for the game, you will learn more about it that way…

DAVIE222-PSVita 31 October, 2012 @ 15:43
144

PS3 YOUTUBE APP?

145

I don’t think a lot of you realise the realities of retail at the minute. If Sony undercut what the high street shops were charging, they could simply refuse to sell any hardware or software. Obviously, the day will come when Sony won’t have to rely on the high street (would you want to get your new PlayStation through the post?) and downloading will be cheaper and more convenient than shopping in a store, plus when internet speeds get faster, that’ll be a big help. Until that day arrives, we’ll have to suffer inflated prices on the store and shop around for the cheapest offers.

Just pointing something out, there are some full games in the DLC section of the store. Might wanna get on that ;)

147

Hey Jawad,read the other day that the Hotline Miami guys were in talks with Sony about bringing the game to PS devices.
I don’t know your standing in such talks,but make it so.

Also DD prices yadda yadda,wont buy games in the future yadda yadda ya.

148

This store is a shambles, its nearly stressful to find anything, I would bet publishers aren’t too happy with it either, the new stuff should be in my face when I enter the store, as it stands it looks like nothing has happened to it, I have to know what’s new from here on the blog, pick something from the list, go to my ps3 and manually search for it, a ‘new this week’ section would help so that we can find everything new in one place, you know, like it used to be :/

I don’t understand why a digital version cost more then a physical copy?
69.99 for ACIII ?!

150

AC liberation has been up for 30 mins and it has 50 five-star reviews already?! It seems like the review system on the store is deceptive. Are games given automatic five stars when they are downloaded? if so that is completely wrong.

also pricing for AC and NFS on vita is ridiculous

ryannumber3gamer 31 October, 2012 @ 15:51
151

I already asked 3 times and i didn’t get a answer so i’m going to ask again. Will we ever see Parappa the Rapper 1 & 2 and Umjammer Lammy be added to the PS1 & PS2 classics?

152

@xephon1970 i get why they dont undercut but in some cases they are asking £20 more than the RRP for it, why dont they charge the same price as retail then if they dont want to rock the boat by undercutting them but they are not even doing that, there really is no need to ask such high prices it’s nothing but greed.

153

What happened to “VITA games will be 10% cheaper digitally than retail”?
Another Sony lie?

Shameless, greedy pricing again. What a bummer to be stuck with a console I hate to be able play the games I love.

Closure?
Dyad?
CS:GO?
Retro City Rampage?

RottenFoxBreath 31 October, 2012 @ 15:56
154

Seriously, well done on those stupid idiotic prices…

Assassin’s Creed III Price: £49.99

Need for Speed Most Wanted Price: £59.99

And for the Vita,

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Price: £39.99

Need for Speed Most Wanted Price: £39.99

—- When will you people at Sony ever learn..?!?

Nice update this week.
Still a bit of critisism why are digital downloads so expensive.
Retail edition of NFS or AC III are going for 50 t0 55 euro’s not the standard 70 euro’s on PSN. Jawad why is this, at this rate digital downloads will never be succesfull

i can see SCEE sure knows how 2 not suprise ppl with failed update missing content for months if not years. so called improvment with the store and many other things just being lies or propoganda.
still missing
CS:GO or the ps3 youtube app which is U.S exclusive like everything else on the U.S store more than 30 missing ps1 classic starting at 2007 which they fail 2 ever get 2 europe yet U.S has every ps1 game we have. no ps2 classic if i had 2 guess it’s lazyness.
and their ever lying customer support acting like they care saying thins like we’ll look into it and then never ever getting a reply back.
getting used as test rats for the new store cause they woulden’t want 2 offend their gods the U.S market.
SO MANY FAILURES AT SCEE IF WE HAD TO WRITE EM ALL DOWN WE’D HAVE A BOOK BY NOW.

157

Oh and the search fuction in new store is completely useless – it finds nothing. Yesterday I spend 15 minutes trying to find Tomb Raider Underworld.

With the WONDERFUL new store layout, if you try to list game add-ons alphabetically, it sorts them by the name of the pack rather than the name of the game (for example, rather than putting all LA Noire cases together you’ll see Nicholson Electroplating, then have to scroll through loads of unrelated stuff to get to Reefer Madness). Whose bright idea was this and can it be fixed?

159

With some of you having problems finding DLC etc the best way I found, was search for the game that you want the DLC for instead, click on it, then scroll down & you will see all associated content relating to that title.

Far easier method imo!

Is it only me who dont like the new store?
And the gameprices are a joke..

161

Also i’m gutted that Retro City Rampage isn’t out after the huge delay in the first place!

Topped my wallet up today hoping for the Elvira table, for Pinball Arcade too :(

162

“Retro City Rampage coming very soon”.

:D

What is it with SCEE and release DATES?

@Jawad; @SCEE;

Tell your superiors the lack of information about Counter Strike GO is seriously making some people change to the Xbox 360, and some changing their mind about buying more Sony Playstation products at all.

After the lack of information about the mess going on the the release of the CS:GO, and many other games already released on the US, the mess with the Singstar on the XMB, the issues about digital pricing and sales’ value against the US,etc., it’s seriously injuring SCEE image and will be reflected in sales of all Sony products, specially those with the Playstation brand.

How could you expect a european PS3 gamer to buy a PS Vita with all those issues? How do you want them to even consider buying a PS4 instead of an Wii U or the next Xbox? The hardware could be superior, but the most important thing is what you get from that hardware and not the hardware itself.

This is going too far, and the damage could be irreversible if you, SCEE, don’t take serious actions agai...

This is going too far, and the damage could be irreversible if you, SCEE, don’t take serious actions against all those issues. (1/2)

Enough is enough. If SCEE are sticking to their BS excuse that the publisher sets the price for digital titles, then you must be ignorant to the obvious & deliberate undermining of the PSN Store by these publishers.

Explain to me (if you can, which you won’t) how/why this happens:
PSN Need for Speed MW is £59.99 for a standard edition.
BluRay Need for Speed MW LIMITED EDITION is only £49.99 (Disc with extra DLC) Btw, that is the publishers price direct from their site.

Now, to start on the conversion rate. Are you even educated beyond primary school math? In which universe does following apply:

UK £59.99 converted to US = $96.63
However, on the US store:
US $59.99 converted to UK = £37.25

You continually and blatantly fleece your largest user base with these ridiculous prices. Are you in control of your own service or just bend over and take it when a publisher tells you to?

I know the chances to get a reply from you are very very slim (you never answered me, despite I’m being in the first comments sometimes, and asking the same questions for several weeks in a row, and the problem was not the question itself because last week I got a reply from Fred who have replaced you at that time, to answer our questions), but be assured that I’m not talking this with hate or something like that, I’m only trying to help you (SCEE). I’m a Sony costumer, I spent loads of money on Sony products all over the past years, I supported SCEE and Sony Europe with my money, I think we deserve to see those issues sorted as soon as possible.

If you fail to address those issues, and making up with us who are injured by SCEE actions during the christmas season, I could tell you that the damage will be permanently irreversible.

Good luck and cheers to all SCEE who work hard to sort those issues. (2/2)

166

Quote:
It’s coming very soon. The developer will hopefully be appearing on the Blog in the next week or so to provide an update and answer any questions on the game, so please stay tuned.

At this point, unless its a ps+ free game…. I doubt I’ll ever play the game. All the big aaa games are here now and once I’m fed up of them, something else will have the attention of my money.

167

@ Xephon1970

But being on a closed platform wont change the prices,we’ll have nothing to compare with.
EA could charge £70 for Fifa 19/20 on a closed digital only system,and there’s nothing anyone can do.

I do think retail has a future, unfortunately it’ll be digital tickets.And this is were the price war will continue.

There are advantages.
No need for optical drives,less heat,less moving parts,smaller systems.

There are also negatives.
Price’s, company’s collapse and lose your content,backwards compatibility,File size’s,global internet speeds,no sniffing of new manuals or new disks,and a host of other issues.

@ Danlisa

To make it worse, the Limited Edition of Most Wanted is only £36.85 @ Shopto.net!

@jaffe07

SCEE is the biggest joke there is it’s just not very funny.

Okami HD
Price: £15.99/€19.99… this is a joke! High price = LOW sell

SCEE is the reason why ppl should go xbox next GEN cause they are just treating us like scum. no original awnsers just ignoring us in full force.
constantly saying there is gonna be improvment yet we are lacking behind U.S by about 5 years now basicly let’s say since PS3 launched SCEE been failing.

173

Also, the file size for Okami HD is 6.2GB if anyone is interested?

177

I have an issue while trying to buy Sports Champions 2 (19.99€): it says my PSN password is not correct, but I checked several times and it IS correct !

I hope it will be fixed soon because I added 19.99€ to my PSN for this game, not for anything else. -_-

Alot of hostilaty pointed at SCEE again this week its just gets worse an worse but from comments iv read i can understand why pricing is rediculous on the store for example dishonored is £49.99 when you can get the limited or special edition £10 cheaper people moan that SCEE are miles behind SCEA which in all fairness is totally correct they get everything and more i.e the moh game trial the nfs:mw game trial and whole bunch more including ps plus stuff to. SCEE lack the motivation to get these products out to us and only every respond with a simple yes or no when SCEE customers want proper answers not bull**** one’s time for SCCE to really sort themselves out or risk losing customers if anyone from SCEE has got any answers to why they are so far behind please let your customers know its not nice to keep people left in the dark escepically when we pay for it!!!!

@CoolRichy008UK

get lost you stupid troll your nothing but spamming most off the time talking (CENSORED) like you even care 5 second your ripping off about sony and another second your defending them. you should have been banned years ago with all those threats you send 2 ppl.

Just kill the new store with fire already.
And that Singstar icon as well while you’re at it.

Seems an ok price for silent hill. Does that mean we should expect it to change any minute now?

VITA: Need for Speed Most Wanted Price: £39.99/€49.99 <-(!)

WHAT? Lol… that's not how you sell handheld/Vita games! I know it is a pretty good port done internally at Criterion, but that price is ludicrous. I'll just wait and pick up a retail card once it hits €35 or below.

The 'tards at EA are completely out of sync with reality.

@catkiller1 yeah that’s where i got my copy from it shipped this morning so i hopefully will egt it tomorrow if not for sure Friday, £60 on PSN is a joke just how the hell EA think they can ask that much i do not know, they are not the only ones asking stupid prices for their games but one of the worst.

I really am excited to see what meaningless apologies we are in store for this week.

Everybody, stop asking question about Retro City Rampage and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive there coming soon, very soon.
The sure thing is that we will play them before we go to the next world. T
hats a promise from the EU PSN store.
SCEE is doing the best it can for us.
Don’t you see it?
Am I the only thinking their doing the best they can?

@ Jawad
Still no signs of Page Chronica which I payed full price for over a month ago after a broken version was accidentally put up for sale. I expected to wait a week or so and then it’d probably be officially released. But this is kind of beyond a joke at this point. I could’ve spent the money on something else I wanted and be playing that right now instead! Either refund the game, or just gimme what I paid for please?

188

Really need to rethink ya pricing. Or tell the publishers to because £50 for a game that will probably be half that in stores within a week.

@coolrichy only a complete tard would stick with a brand for no reason. A real gaming fan will go where they can get he best games and service. And that isn’t Sony Europe.

Any chance of making the new PSN store less convoluted? Trying to find new content on there is near impossible.

Also I wish we could get stuff at the same time as everyone else, I’m so tired of waiting extra weeks for stuff, some of it shows up late while others just not at all. I think I’ll just pick up Retro City Rampage on steam at this point, I’m sick of waiting.. it’s just going to turn into another CS:GO again anyway.

Also, I know it’s hardly the place to say it but the Singstar icon that now clogs up my games tab seriously has to go. I get that Sony is proud of it, but I’m proud of not having to be forced an advert for a game I don’t care about every time I play a game.

We’re taking your suggestions on board and will look at ways to improve things. Remember, there will be updates to the store every so often so things you request may eventually make it in a future update.

Adumr82 i doubt we will get any reply there is usually someone on by now responding to questions yet no one has so far, most likly to scared to face the public because they know they have no answers

Jawad, I don t understand your feedback on Retro City Rampage ?
Why the developper will be appearing on the EU blog ?
The European version of Retro City Ramapge will be different from the one available last month on US PSN, or the one available worldwide on STEAM ?

@ Maxim_82

Regarding CSGO (can’t believe I’m actually saying this) in this very, very…very, rare circumstance, the delay isn’t SCEE’s fault.

Look towards Valve for an explanation.

Hellscovern £60 for a game is a kick in the goolies sure sony needs the money for a ps4(JOKE) but i think they should make the games cheeper after 2 weeks yes i know i got the new rayman from the ps store when it was £50 then dropped to £20 it was only because i had every rayman game and if the price of ACIII GOLD is really £49.99 and not £84 like it was i might get it.
————————————————————

@jawad i know we keep goin on about RetroCityRampageings but plz see about getting it game of the month or a discount for us for waiting for it and yes Neochaos we keep sayin about RCR but it will be the greatest game ever apart from ACIII

@adumr82

Hello Jawad,

Ok, I really need an answer about this :

why isn’t assassin’s creed III available in Turkey?
Even more important, why isn’t any of its DLC available in Turkey? Even the Benedict Arnold one (I mean, it should be available for every copy everywhere, being a PS exlcusivity!)

When will I be able to download them?

AC is one of the best franchise of this generation, and certainly on top of my list, and I’m really surprised to not be able to play its last iteration fully only because I live in a certain country…
