hi
the preorder discount for when vikings attack didn’t work on the store. will the discount be extended to people buying to today?

1.1

Hi,

I’ll take a look into it.

No CS GO. Again =(

supersmith2500 07 November, 2012 @ 15:04
3

So once again no Retro City Rampage then eh? Time to visit VBlank on Facebook and see what is going on.

Also, I thought ToeJam & Earl would come eventually.

3.1

Sadly not :( . Once we have word from the devs that we can share we’ll be sure to let you know.

4

i can’t find Sports Champions 2 in saudi store

can we get the monster hunter games via ps2 classics please

Retro City Rampage.???????????????????

So bad so bad.

Hi jawad
Just wondering when the jet set radio avatars will be available to everyone other than plus members?

7.1

As far as I am aware they will only be PS Plus exclusive.

8

Always feel the need to point this out, but a “New this week” section on the store should be a priority. It was removed once before and everyone complained until it was put back. Why remove it again?

Dyad for £6.40? Sold.

8.1

Suggestions are always welcome. Remember, there will be incremental updates to the store, so perhaps it may be included in a future update.

@ JAWAD

Any chance of releasing a Poppy Avatar that was requested many times last year? We were told this would be looked into for this year but I haven’t heard anything??

There should be more digital content where the proceeds or a % of the proceeds would go to charity. Children in Need, Sport Relief, Royal British Legion etc!

9.1

A nice idea but it hasn’t come into fruition. I won’t rule it out entirely but it’s unlikely it’ll be happening any time soon.

Hi Jawad,

Is there any chance you know anything about the following making it to the ps store?

Hitman HD Collection

Kingdom hearts 1 and 2

The walking dead episode 5

Any skyrim dlc

Thanks

10.1

You’ll have to wait for announcements from publishers in regards to the releases. Of course, Walking Dead 5 is a give but I can’t speak of any dates.

Wrc3 for vita?????????

Been playing When Vikings Attack! since this morning (thanks to the pre order offer). Jolly good fun in co-op, and easily the game I’ll fire up the most when I need to waste 10 minutes on the train or something…

megaman Avatars!? jawad ? :)

14

Toe Jam and mother effing Earl! Awwwww yeah!

Carnivius_Prime 07 November, 2012 @ 15:06
15

Still waiting for Retro City. I’d like LittleBigPlanet Karting but when it’s cheaper. I’ll take All 4 One from Plus freebies and perhaps a couple of sale items.

15.1

No Vanquish at that price?

hi jawad
Just wondering when the jet set radio avatars will be available for everyone? not just plus members.

17

Also what the hell is up with Retro City Rampage? Is the EU certification process really that much of a drag?

17.1

I’m not able to provide details, but as mentioned above, once we have word from devs to share, we definitely will.

Nice update, great to see Dyad after a long wait.

Jawad have you got any news about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to share? I’m still looking forward to it, I hope it will be released soon!

18.1

Sadly not. I know it’s probably the biggest pain for many of you, but there’s nothing I can speak of again this week. Sorry :(

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

We need a date.

19.1

No date to speak of at the moment.

20

Hi Jawad,

Is there any chance we will get the Valkyria Chronicles II bundle pack that the NA store has?

Thanks!

supersmith2500 07 November, 2012 @ 15:07
21

Oh and Jawad one more thing, what about the free Plus games and can you see Vblank what’s the hold up for RCR? Thanks.

21.1

Sorry! There is a Plus update, too of course, so you will see Crysis 2 and Ratchet from today.

Where is todays Plus Content (R&C and Crysis2) or is is just not posted here?

22.1

I’ve added it to the post for clarity.

hi jawad sorry but where is SPYRO i mean come on guys been like 2 years now =[ also no cs go still or retro city rampage please please pleeeeaaaaaaaasssssssssse tell me spyro will be here before new years because its beyond a joke i know its not your fault jawad but its not great =[

23.1

I’m sorry…

I was disappointed when Spyro got pushed back. I don’t have another date but I’m hoping it’s really close. Ther were a couple of issues our guys ran into so we’re working around those.

Once again, sorry!

Carnivius_Prime 07 November, 2012 @ 15:07
24

quit your spamming, onieyes.

25

Why no Crysis 2 for plus ?!

26

what happened to the free games for plus?

Crysis 2? Ratchet and Clank? i thought that was this week..

so plus content for this week is only 2 discounts??? no avatars nothing?

27

the LBP karting one week t-shirt will it work with LBP2?

brucewillis215 07 November, 2012 @ 15:07
28

Please remove the Singstar app away from the Game tab
and,Can you please tell me if Spyro and Counter Strike Global Offensive will ever release on EU Ps3?

29

Only discounts in the PS Plus part of the store update?
Do you know if Anomaly will ever be available in Belgium?
Any updates about the next phase of the PSM roll-out?

No Retro City Rampage again.

Useless.

30.1

Sorry…

I was just getting ready to make a post asking for the status of Dyad. Great to see that it’s finally out! Now I can’t wait to get home. :p

SeparateEntity 07 November, 2012 @ 15:08
32

No Portal 2 DLC? Have Valve stopped supporting PS3 in Europe?

32.1

Stay tuned.

@ Jawad:

Hi there, good fellow! How are you? As usual, I have my fair share of question, though most likely you already know the subject:

1) What’s the Spyro situation, will we see him before 2013?
2) If you don’t have a date, what’s the QA situation, more or less? Where are they stuck? And if you can’t say anything too specific, how far are they from their goal?
3) As a more generic question, are your colleagues at-the-other-side-of-the-Atlantic (SCEA) doing something about the spread between the content available in our Store and that available in theirs?
4) If not, do they at least have some kind of opinion about this, or are they simply aware of the situation of the European Store?

Thanks in advance for your answers, whether you actually answer or not.

33.1

Hi,

1.2. As mentioned just a little bit above, there were a couple of issues we ran into that we’re currently working on. Will it end up being in 2013? I cannot say. I hope not!

3. Depends on the content. We do wish to release as close together as possible but it’s not always possible (you know, the usual QA submissions, licenses, approvals, legal…)

34

Hi jawad

Any news on retro City rampage to share? :-)

34.1

Once I get word from devs I’ll share. Then again, you might hear back first, too.

Ever thought that Retro City Rampage might be a released when PS Plus for Vita does? Maybe like Jet Set Radio?

We can hope ;)

@ JAWAD

I forgot to add, Pid was mentioned a few months back by Ross that it would be a PLUS title, along with Knytt Underground & Big Sky Infinity to release later. Why hasn’t this been mentioned?? If they aren’t PLUS titles anymore why hasn’t this been explained did you think some of us may have forgotten? ;)

Hello Jawad,

There is a major problem with the digital version of Uncharted 2 in our Saudi store! The DLC is simply not compatible, it is only compatible with the disc version with the code BCES-00509, I tried E-mailing Sony, it took them a month to reply, they asked me to delete game data and redownload the whopping 19.5GB, install it, and then redownload the DLC again, I did all that but still, the DLC is not recognized at all. I put a thread in the PSN technical forum here they tell me they’re working on it and I’m still waiting. Believe me Jawad this issue exists in our Saudi store, it’s not just me, I ran into someone in the forum who had the same issue and never got a fix. I just wanted to add you to the list of people who have heard the problem.

Thank you.

Ha Ha! @OniEyes stop speaking the truth man! Your posts will be deleted!

Any news regarding the Vita PS+ details?

40

seems to be going down hill now, still no news on retro city rampage, shall i cant have a US account on my vita and flick between them.
Would be nice to get news on the vita plus details that are meant to be coming for november.
cheers

40.1

Vita Plus details will be coming along fairly soon.

@ cognac-vsop

This is the general Store Update. PLUS Update usually posts shortly after but as there was a post last week detailing what was included, I doubt we’ll hear anything else!

and then everyone went and bought their digital games on steam, at a cheaper price, with a better service and games that came out on time, rather than months later…. or not at all in some cases ;)

the end.

43

@Jawad

PLEASE do SOMETHING about the new layout of the Store? DLC to older games is now nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find unless you spend hours trawling through it all. Before the A-Z under All Add on packs would be the GAMES names under the A-Z but now….?

Its listed under the ACTUAL dlc packs name!! So unless what you want is brand new or to a huge franchise, browsing for DLC for my games has become a NIGHTMARE!

Nothings where it should be, get RID of the Videos, if something is on sale……I dont know why dont you actually put it on the Store in the Sale? ACR Lost Archives DLC ring any bells?

Please Jawad, the only thing that needed fixing on the Store was the Download list but thats the ONLY thing not been touched.

Best looking thing on there seems to be When Vikings Attack, it’s good to see more Cross-Buy games :)

Also the prices for LBP Karting and DMC HD are at least sensible. While digital versions of games should really be cheaper than hard copies, given the reduced costs involved, it’s good to see them not start of being way more expensive for a change.

I’ve given in and bought Retro City Rampage on Steam. I might have waited if we’d have been given a date, but I was blindly waiting for a Vita release that’s seems like it’ll never happen.

Oh, and can anyone tell me what size When Vikings Attack is please?

46

No Crysis 2?

No Jet Set Radio Vita? Could you at least give us an estimated date?

1 = noting of intrest to me again 0.O not in deals not in store update

Dyad
Price: £7.99/€9.99 if price 5 € i buy so i wait = mini games i not pay more then 5 €

Hi,

To coincide with the release of the Mass Effect trilogy in December, is there any chance that you can arrange to have a sale on all of the Mass Effect 2 and 3 DLC that is not included with the trilogy?

I’d imagine that the publisher would be keen to support such a sale – it just makes sense right?

Thank you.

Hi Jawad,

I’m having two problems with the Store…

1) I got Dead Nation for free as part of the ‘Welcome Back’ scheme, but now I’m redownloading it (on new 500GB machine!) and it has a full game trial-style yellow icon next to it when downloading. If I have a problem getting full game who will I contact?

2) Another little problem: it seems the new Store is incapable of letting you download a game trial off the Plus section if you have already done it before. I was trying to download Scott Pilgrim vs The World (trial and unlock) and I was getting a 6kb download instead. The unlock key was a little bigger. Is there a way to get this sorted for other customers?

And one tiny question….

Do you know if Tomba! is almost fixed? Cannot wait to play it on my Vita.

As always, good work!

50.1

1. You will need to contact customer service if it doesn’t function as it should. They will be able to look into entitlements you have.

2. Odd one but I’ll pass it on.

I haven’t heard back on Tomba!, I don’t see it being a quick fix.

@ JAWAD

With regards to Pinball Arcade DLC, it states Harley Davidson & Taxi tables but where is the Elvira DLC that was released last week within the US store? Is this incoming?

Does SCEE have a bad relationship with VALVe or something? No Counter-Strike Global Offensive or Portal 2 In Motion DLC either.

On a positive note, even though I’m not getting WWE ’13 until Christmas, I’ll buy the Fan Axxess now whilst it’s 50% off :)

What about PS Plus for Vita?

Disappointed with the When Vikings attach pre-order not being able to do it through the Vita. Just doesn’t make sense having multiple store fronts, ( none that work well or show the correct details) For each of the consoles. Give us a store that can be accessed via any Sony hardware or even a Web based store that we can my purchases from a web enabled device.

Would have bought it but now I won’t, We buy the shiny new console and our reward is propitiatory memory cards, Over priced digital content and being discriminated against for buying the shiny new console.

56

@onieyes plz stop spamming on the blog -_-

56.1

Yes: constructive feedback = good, spam = bad. Such posts will disappear.

@ CiastekPL

I don’t think the store has updated yet. I would wait another couple of hours.

Let the boycott begin.bad week as well cause was gonna buy LBP kating oh well.

Purchased When Vikings Attack on Vita > Unable to download on PSVita lol

what the crap!!!!!!!
><
I didnt get PS+ for discounts I came for games and betas…..

60.1

It’s been updated. The Plus post detailing it all came earlier this time.

I’m hoping that the plus update part is wrong, because i’m expecting to get crysis 2, Ratchet and Cubixx free today, like you guys anounced it last week!

Posted on 7 November, 2012 at 3:03 pm by INS1GHTFUL

hi
the preorder discount for when vikings attack didn’t work on the store. will the discount be extended to people buying to today?

Go On SONY do the right thing. Drop the price

63

There is no way in hell I am going to support DMC2. I want the titles available individually, you hear me Capcpom!? You can take this collection and keep it where the sun don’t shine, DMC2 is atrocious! I already spent £40 on it back in 2003 which I regret to this day. Just let me have the magnificent original and the return to the form.

Also I hope Vanquish is available for free to PS+ subscribers soon because as a subscriber none of the free games appeal to me right now. I either already own or don’t care to ever play them, I mean, Crysis 2? Give me a break.

BTW more quality PS1/2 classics please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

63.1

£20 for DMC1+DMC3. Those 2 alone are worth the £20, personally.

As for Vanquish. No comment.

I preordered LBPK off PSN but I didn’t get the preorder costumes. :( HELP, PLEASE!

@Catkiller1
it has updated and there is nothing new >< just discounts…..

66

Hi would just like to inform you that while my Ps Vita is happy to take my money for when vikings attacks it says that it is not downloadable from my Ps Vita system.
Is this:
a:its not yet been uploaded to the store (if so why can i see it on my vita)
b: a mistake that needs to be rectified.

Looking forward to a response

66.1

Nothing to respond yet but I’ve flagged it.

Question: Any chance we can get the DMC collection split up into separate games? I only want DMC3.

@OniEyes I completely agree with what your saying but spamming the comments section might not be the best way to get your message across.

67.1

Might be worth requesting this through Capcom’s channels. I wouldn’t imagine it to be a difficult task.

Nice of Dyad to finally arrive. I am looking forward to playing Retro City Rampage on my Vita in March 2015. There should also be quite a handful of PlayStation Mobile games when it finally rolles out in my country in 2017.
Before you say anything, I know there are other games to choose from but the problem is there is a fair amount of content not available for people who paid as much (or even more) for the hardware as those who have it at their disposal and I don’t think I’ve ever had that kind of problem (which should not exist in the first place in this day and age) as a paying customer.

69

#62

Couldn’t agree more; much slower, harder to find new content, search function is beyond awful and did I mention it’s slow as a slug!

Fix it Sony. Always one step forward and two steps back.

Any news about a Pinball Arcade bundle with a nice discount?

anyways good update :)

Hello Jawad :)

Quick question, will Black Ops 2 be on the store for launch? Or is it the usual Delayed Digital Release from Activision?

Would really appreciate an answer :D

Thanks!

71.1

Hopefully same day and hopefully midnight, too. Can’t confirm that though.

72

By #62 I meant OniEyes post about the store being terrible. Which got deleted because truth hurts.

1. Any word on when Retro City Rampage is due for release? I thought the developers or publishers would post on the blog regarding the delay, but I haven’t seen them on here yet.

2. Since “Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus” will be released on Xbox LIVE in the Netherlands this friday, I was wondering when the PSN is going to get it. I really want this game, so I hope it comes out fairly soon. Any news?

3. When is SEGA going to reduce the price of the Battle DLC for “Sonic Adventure 2?” The current price for the Netherlands is €4,49, while the content goes for $2,99 on the US Store. Why do we have to pay twice the amount for the same content?

Hoping to get some answers regarding these questions today. Thanks. Happy with today’s update, though.

73.1

1. Sadly not. Once we (me and Fred) get word we’ll let you know.

2. No news yet. Eager for it, too (Blazblue doesn’t do it for me)

3. No plans to discount that yet, sorry.

74

Yay been waiting for today to come i can finally buy WWE 13 Fan Axxess god i love Playstation Plus thanks one happy customer and thankyou from my children *as they have been bugging me to buy it since last week lol*.

No Portal In Motion DLC?

The US PSN Store got it this week. It adds a new single player campaign and move functionality to Portal 2.

I really don’t like the look of the new store. It seems a lot of the older DLC has either disappeared or doesn’t appear in the search. Why couldn’t you have left it the way it was? It was far easier to navigate and see what was new, and what was available for each game.

75.1

Look out for an announcement on Friday re. the Portal 2 DLC. It’s very nearly with us.

76

Please can we have the option to delete Singstar on the game section. I absolutely hate having it there in the middle of all of my games. It would also be a great idea to be able to delete some of the free downloads from the download list on the playstation store such as demos and other stuff. I just want to be able to tidy up my download list and get rid of the stuff I wont download any more.

Anyway, it’s good to see Devil May Cry Hd Collection finally on the store. I might pick up the Sly Collection in the all-stars sale which is cheaper than buying it on disc. Great sale guys. Thanks. :)

Between these crap updates, non-communication, awful new store and forced ads on my XMB SCEE is really making the choice on where to go next generation easy on me.

No CS:GO, Portal In Motion or Jet Set Radio (Vita) :( depressing can i ask has CS:GO been canned for EU release now?

79

Please get rid of Singstar!!! give people the choice to delete it! or change its location atleast.. it makes my eyes bleed!

Hi.

Any chance of resident evil 2 for the Vita?
How about original X Com too.

Many thanks. Again.

Hey there, just wanna put my thoughts in.

Great store update today, plenty of content, may pick up Split/Second myself and looking forward to the Epic Mickey demo.

I do have a few misgivings though. I realise there’s still trouble getting hold of the Spyro games for our regions but can we at least know what the hold up is? I’m really wanting to play these and it’d be a real treat to take them on the go with my Vita. Perfect sized screen for older titles.

And as Okami was out last week, will there be any chance of the Avatar’s the US had last year? It’s seriously one of my favourite games of all time and I’d love to express that some more through my online picture. I love my Ultimecia but its time for a change.

Also on the subject of Avatar’s, I agree there should be some Remembrance ones available, such as Poppies or Purple Hearts and the like, with a percentage to go to charities. I would gladly pay extra for avatars that were for a good cause. As in sure many of us would.

I do not want to see a advertisement for singstar every time i turn on my PS3.

Still no dawnguard

nothing good here

and the new store layout is horrible .. should left it how it was and just fix few things

To all with regards to Retro City Rampage.

It was explained last week that there will be a Blog Post sometime this month detailing the release date etc & some information.

Hi Jawad

Why can’t we preorder games through the Vita store? When Vikings attack looks great and the preorder price is even better but because I only have a Vita I can’t take advantage of it. It seems strange to alienate one section of gamers.

MordecaiHunter 07 November, 2012 @ 15:27

Any News About “Dokuro” for the vita ? the usa have only had it about over a month or so now…

And JAWAD Why have you stopped listing the avatars and themes on the heads up ?

87.1

The posts tend to get quite long and timing is an issue, so I’ve had to trim some things off. Sorry!

ok i made my point. Time for a sandwich :)

89

What is this months (November) PS+ game of the month?

89.1

Crysis 2!

The plus games update is also today right?

I have just a few questions about the content on the store, there’s two games I can’t find that were released quite a while ago:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-shelled, I read somewhere that it was pulled from the US store, did that also happened with the EU store?

Sonic CD: This one I know it’s still there. I downloaded the trial from my downloads list, but if I search in the store I can’t find the trial or the full version.

I actually enjoy the new Store, it was a bit slow at first but it’s fast and nice visually, but I do agree that the Singstar in the menu is really annoying, at least move it next to the Playstation Home or give us the option to remove or something…

And it’s not just a style problem, but also an usability one: let me explain, I have albuns setup so I have the content organized, when I want to play the game I have on the tray I press the pad a few times and hit x to start, I do this for years now and su...

And like me, there are many other gamers in the same situation.

Anyway, I would like some feedback on my questions above. Thanks.

90.1

Yes, Plus should update today.

TMNT was removed from EU stores a little while back due expired licenses.

where is crysis 2? wasnt it promised to be in the PS+ section for today , november 7 ???

Will Germany ever get to see a release of Killzone HD?

Yes, the new store is god-damn awful.

It’s worse than Windows 8, and that’s saying something.

I think there’s a reason the US chose to keep the old layout for a while longer.

The new store is a mess. The amount of steps you have to go through to find the latest content for say, Rock Band each week is a joke. Previously it was under the “latest” section with a huge Rock Band icon and it was easy to find. Now you have to go to latest, add-ons, filter by newest, and then they’re scattered amongst 400 other entries. It’s a joke. Who came up with this design?

Please change it back or give us the ability to choose what layout we want to use. It’s simply not practical or useable anymore.

I’ve already asked that in previous blog entries, but it was ignored… Fred, Jawad, please reply to this:

1) What happened to the Soul Calibur V music packs in the ITALIAN store? They’ve vanished without a reason, please do something, report to the main technical staff, who knows.
2) Will we ever get a discount for all the addons for Soul Calibur IV and V? (especially the latter)
3) Why Under Defeat HD costs 22 dollars more than the US digital version? It’s supposed to cost 30 dollars in the US, it’s still less than our 40 euros.
4) Will we ever see a discount for the Need For Speed franchise in the future? (except the new Most Wanted of course)

94.1

I’ll ask about the removals. I’m guessing there’s a publisher reason to it.

Let Chris know about discounts in his sale posts and he’ll see what he can do.

Jawad replies, Fred reappears and even edits the article to prevent further confusion! … it almost feels like christmas! ^^

Seriously, why can’t you guys always handle it that way? It’s not really complicated.
Very good content and sales this week btw.

95.1

Work load can unfortunately get crazy, and of course with errors that do occur, we’re busy chasing those up and tearing our hair out over them.

Not wanting to start the old US V’s SECC store battle. But the US store has a PS+ discount for when vikings attack.

Vita owners can’t even get the pre-order price..

– 95% of the PS2 games are garbage, release good games. / totally true
– Charging ridiculous amounts for digital games./ also true
– Forced to have a Singstar icon on the XMB. / should be removed, cause me no like it and i dont like to sing. so yeah.

Was looking for Portal.

MordecaiHunter 07 November, 2012 @ 15:31

Chris – Fred – or even Jawad

Will we be getting the New Plus Games Today ?

99.1

That is the plan.

SCEEs process to get games on ps store is really BAD. So many games that have been delayed over here and so many games we have yet to get. Don’t give us it’s diffrent rules over here in Europe becuase why is not that stopping your MS?

101

@Fred and Jawad – atleast one of you answer me…

I am not going to post my truthly post which i believe you’ve been considering as spam. If you dont wish for me to moan and complain then can you give me some way so i can put a complaint in and recieve an answer? Thats not hard and i’m even asking nicely.

I sent an email in on the 1st and now its the 7th and have had no reply, atleast give me the respect as your customer to stop ignoring me and help..

And i stick my my comments i will not be purchasing anything from the store until im ackownledged by the staff.
/Boycott

101.1

Consumer services do their best to respond to consumers where they can and in a timely manner. They get swamped with e-mails and comments, so it may take them time to address your concerns, and sadly, sometimes they won’t due to the work load and priorities. Hopefully you’ll hear back from them.

102

@ tiago-kun

Yes, TMNT Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, was also pulled from Europe.

OH! I had £20 set aside to get me some Portal 2 action but Devil May Cry Collection is delicious at that price, thank you!! I’m glad more and more of these games are making it onto PSN since my Blu-ray drive died about a year ago and I really on this store. Thanks again guys but maybe Portal 2 next week? ^^ Super happy!! THANKS!!!

Hi Jawad!

There is (or was) a Plus exclusive DLC pack for Dungeon Defenders in the US store. Any chance we could get it here as well?

I’ve asked this in the comments of a couple of Plus posts but haven’t received any answer.

105

Jawad, I hope the Darksiders II Season Pass problems will be fixed today, do you know anything about it?

105.1

Currently awaiting feedback on this one yet.

almighty-slayer 07 November, 2012 @ 15:37

When are we getting the Portal 2 Move DLC? :(

what avatars do we get next week if u have any info on that.

Just Sports Champions 2 today, I believe. I don’t have next week’s content on hand at the moment.

I’m pretty sure admins don’t bother reading past the first page but…

PLEASE

PPPPLLLLEEEEEAAAAAASSSSEEEE

BRING BACK REMOTE PLAY FOR THE PS STORE!

Also please get the “boffins” to bring it back to the SingStar app and iPlayer.

It’s REALLY annoying that we keep losing features.

I logged on with my Vita (and formerly PSP) to my PS3 every Wednesday when I get in to browse the store because the main TV is usually in use.

It was a GREAT feature. I’m wondering why I bothered with my Vita because Sony seem to keep forgetting it exists!

Please stop taking features away from us!

Also, on a side-note, the new store design is awful. I loved going straight to the “New this week” section and being able to see it all. The new version has stripped this from me, and splitting stuff out into Games, Demos, DLC sucks. Where are the themes? Where’s PS Access? Why is Plus not as prominent? As for the new search function… horrible. Why did I buy a wireless keypad? Why, in fact, have I stuck with S...

111

I just accidentally got the vita version of when vikings attack when I don’t have a vita! You mentioned that when you get the PS3 version of it you get the vita version free…..does that work the other way round and if so, how can I go about it?

Hi Jawad,

I’ve been raising the issue about the Plus content on Store updates for the last couple of weeks, but it seems that my words are not being considered.

We need a more thorough information about what’s in for Plus subscribers in Store updates posts. We once got all the information about avatars, themes, etc in this post or in a separate post with all the plus content.
Just look at the mess you almost created by leaving the already announced Crysis 2 and R&C A4O out of this post.

Currently we need to go through almost every post on this blog to know which discounts on which releases or sales we will get, and sometimes the information is simply missing. As when we get to the store there are new Avatars, themes, or whatever discounts that were not communicated.

Please, consider my words as a way to improve communication.

Thanks.

112.1

Generally, Plus posts are made to give you that information, rather than to rely on this post. I do add what info I have received into this post now, but your main info should always be from Plus specific posts.

113

If anybody is on the fence regarding When Vikings Attack you can check out my review at The Vita Lounge (all one word) It’s an amazing game.
Worth every penny.

Toe Jame & Earl games!! Woohoo!!

Also the instant game collection i am happy with the new additions!

@mman1235
So? Just wait for the store to update in some few hours.

@Jawad/Fred/Chris
Will we receive some avatars + theme for Plus this month? Since the blank field issue occured in the old store, you guys have been very sloppy with those contents.

No Ragnarok Tactics for Europe? >_>

Ohh and never ever pre order from psn surly you know better by now.as something always ends up going wrong.i have no trust and respect for SCEE it’s just let down after let down.

tired-hippo cal sony in un contry = explain to sony u made mistake

= reasen why new ps3 store u need to confirm 2 – 3 x to buy thing ;)
sorry littel joke

supersmith2500 07 November, 2012 @ 15:43

How much memory does Crysis 2 take anyone? Thanks.

I’ll answer skyrim DLC questions. Bethesda are having trouble getting dawnguard running at a “acceptable” framerate etc on PS3 (but they have said it’s running & is ok for the majority so they really want it working so the picky whinging people won’t moan). Due to that hearthfire is delayed.

Patch 1.8 on steam included PS3 DLC info within the files so we have some hope.

If this guess is correct i think the may be laying the framework for the DLC within the next few patches allowing dawnguard/hearthfire to run smoother at launch instead of buggy game then patches.

Store needs a ‘new this week’ section badly, finding anything currently is far too much work.

If I cannot search easily, I will not buy.

hi Jawad,

dont know if you’ve mentioned this yet but any new on ps plus for the vita. is it still coming this month? and the cloud when will the cloud saving serves for the vita be available?

thanks

122.1

It is coming, yes. Info will be released very soon.

123

Still no Counter Strike and I am not surprised. I have had to resort to buying it on a different platform. The sad thing is that the game is incredible and EU Playstation owners are missing out.

I had money ready to give Sony. Out of all the platforms I wanted to support the Sony console. After being treated to a free weekend of playing it and a discounted price I saw no reason to wait out for a PS3 release.

Congratulations on losing a customer. To be fair, I don’t even think you have lost a customer because from what I have gathered Counter Strike GO will not even see the light of day here in Europe.

Congratulations on this HUGE mess up.

P.S… can we get single versions of DMC on the store? I only want the first one.

Next to no PS+ discounts and no apology for the Dyad delay. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask when he robbed people.

I just heard the PS+ update with new games is about to come :P
srry for being rude there I was sure you were pulling a beyonetta on us XD

any ideas for the date of the PS+ GOW: ascension beta which was confirmed to be this winter :D

Ok, here’s some constructive criticism re: store design.

I won’t complain about layout, but can you, please, make the store working through remote play? The old one was working seamlessly, so I could arrange all the purchases/downloads with my Vita from the office, so I started to play immediately after coming home.

I can’t believe there some people complain about singstar icon and new store. what wrong with singstar? you can’t use it ps3 and can’t play games because that ? NO_ Is a simply icon like others if you don’t use it simply ignore it. Now the store, bring back the old store? for what because you can’t used to really? I know loading slow because start like game but then is fast very fast, all the games you want is in front of you and not need to open again and again different icons. maybe the demos is not necessary to put in kart they must download at onces and the download list need search menu but i tnink they fix that and add more option for everyone. On topid now, great update a lot new games very nice

128

EU PS Plus is better than US PS Plus.. month after month! you guys are the best! I salute you sir!

viiralx

ragnarok : odysee not tactics
nope only usa lounch past week
europe next jear i hope ( if sony give option to buy usa language version = instant buy )

Hi
Can we please have some more ps2 classics e.g the getaway?
And where is nfs most wanted? (ps2)
P.s why is call of duty: WAW not working online, or is it just me?
Thanks

Any news on how much longer were gonna have to stare at those 2 singstar plonkers every time we turn on the PS3, or eject a disc. Seriously, they have to go.

Hi Jawad,

Is there any chance in the future that the store will remove the minimum £5 top up? I’m tired of having to spend a fiver just to buy a DLC pack which costs like £2.

Nintendo let you pay just the required amount on the 3DS eShop (e.g Theatrhythm song for £0.90p)
Be great if Sony could do this too….?

133

@Jawad or Fred

Is the store constantly being updated to fix where things are and stuff like that? For example DLC that hasn’t been set to a specific game?

I’m getting my nephew eyepet for christmas and I’m struggling to find the DLC on the store. The DLC for eyepet and friends is sorted under the main game but the DLC for eyepet isn’t categorized in a similar way.

133.1

Yes. Updates are frequent, so what may be placed incorrectly may be fixed the next time you see it. Obviously given the amount of content to go through it will take time.

Vblank update for RCR on facebook is same as SCEE. It’s coming but no idea when. From that i can only assume SCEE testing is the hold up.

If it’s bugs SCEE finds either we have a brilliant QA team & SCEA doesn’t or the bugs are cause by the multiple languages…. or due to multiple countries laws things need removing/changing etc but due to other console versions not being delayed i’m leaning towards bugs/glitches.

gator_macready 07 November, 2012 @ 15:52

Toejam & Earls for me!!!

And finally a request. Any chance of the psygnosis game Overboard! (PS1) being released on the store. Took ages to remember the name & now i can’t play it with out *cough* something i will not speak of on here haha.

Hi where did the dissidia 012 final fantasy music dlc disappear?

Vita plus details delayed until next week, shame no one told us on here.
http://psvitafront.de/playstation-plus-fur-ps-vita-startet-nun-erst-spater/

141

Sony will postpone the full launch of PlayStation Plus for PlayStation Vita, as Sony has confirmed Chris Howe unfortunately. Originally, they wanted to give today announced the first details to.

In a short statement reads: “The blog entry has been postponed to early next week as we finalize all the details.”

Until then, however, can already take advantage of the first discounts on some items, and German PlayStation Plus users have exclusive access to the demo of Silent Hill. Book of Memories

141.1

That’s misleading – the launch of the service hasn’t been delayed at all. We were hoping to announce some of the content this week but have had to dot a few extra ‘i’s and cross a few ‘t’s. We’ll hopefully be able to spill the beans early next week. I think it’s a great line-up – it should be worth the wait.

my, my.

…only (CENSORED) kissers are allowed on the blog, eh?

(u know who u are ;)

Could we please have a “New this week” section on the store, it should be a priority. I have a horrible time finding stuff on the store so I gave up but would like to have a easy way.

Why no Dyad for Australia and NZ?
Let me guess the devs were to cheap to pay for the classification costs…

145

18 replys still not really answering anybody’s query’s. It getting ridiculous with the constant stonewalling from SCEE. Whats the point in even having a comments section if you cant answer people questions as it leads to spamming although i agree with the point made in the spam. If you stopped stonewalling people and gave them answers maybe this would stop. Its bloody ridiculous and in last 6 months at least, the blog has gone so downhill that one has to question the validity of it and whether there is any point in having one due to the fact that you the staff are so removed from the community that there’s just no point. On a side note, PS PLUS is a bad joke in that the vita service was confirmed to launch today. We’ve had no details and now were are being told it’ll be next week before we get details. Again announcing something great for the vita and then it doesn’t materialize. Tempted to phone CS and cancel the remaining 15 months i have on plus tbh because the overall service ha...

I’m not sure where you’ve got your info, but a date for Vita Plus has not been officially announced anywhere. Like I’ve said above, it’s coming soon, it’s on schedule, and you’ll learn more very soon.

hi, do u know if capcom are gonna make re2 vita compatible anytime soon?? cheers.

@ OniEyes nope but spamming isn’t tolerated haha. Make your point without repeating the same damn thing 7/8 times & it may get noticed.

Anyway you aren’t the only one annoyed at the new store, singstar icon… i dislike the store & HATE the singstar icon just being there & isn’t movable.

1- Annoying Singstar ad in the XMB is easily solved by moving over to an Xbox 360 instead. Their ads appear to be based on stuff you actually play.

2- Functional store with working updates, discounts and dlc, Xbox 360.

3- The ability to search the store using keywords, Xbox 360.

4- Counter Strike, Xbox 360.

5- For crying out loud will you please sort that poor lad out with his Spyro!?!?! Even Jimmy Saville would have fixed it by now!

No, I’m not an Xbox fanboy, Ive been loyal to sony Since 1994. I had to buy an Xbox because I got fed up with SCEE letting me down.

Is anyone at SCEE taking an interest in their loyal customers views on the ever decreasing quality of service they receive? Because I haven’t heard back from them yet.

I give this post 1 minute before it gets removed.

152

Please fix the “what’s new” section on the store to a “what’s new this week” section.
And bring back the alphabetical sorting in the Rock Band DLC folder.

@OniEyes: Yeah, I know what you mean. You have my sympathy.

Im missing the what is new section as well in the store, especially with the updates for the newest avatars and (dynamic) themes.

154

My post vanished and I don’t know why O_o

“I just accidentally got the vita version of when vikings attack when I don’t have a vita! You mentioned that when you get the PS3 version of it you get the vita version free…..does that work the other way round and if so, how can I go about it?”

154.1

There should be 2 products to download – one for Vita, one for PS3.

Let me know if this is not working out for you.

I’ve catch R&C for download (btw 15,9 GB NEW RECORD – Last Record InFamous – 15 GB) now waiting for Crysys 2:)

@ Spam

…what about the singstar Spam on my XMB?

hi onna76_nl hoe gaat het ?
jep i need more games calibers ac3/ uncharted /wipeout end please no esy ports . also mini games like sunflower / bur the rope are funy mini games ath corect price .

158

hey jawad .
first time commenting just wondering why my American friends are displaying kick ass ac3 avatars while im left looking behind the times having to still use ac rev ones :) any chance well get them soon?

onieyes = 154@ spot on
en now shhhhhhh

160

Will Uncharted 3 ever come to the store?

Remove Singstar from XMB please. I know it’s sony’s console and all but i payed for it and i want to use it just the way I LIKE IT!!! and customize it… did you got paid to do this to us?

162

Its was in one of the comments that staff posted on the blog but are you wanting me to track back through a months worth of blogs to find that information?

Nice update this week, especially on the PS+ section

A few of issues I have:

1. Pricing seems inconsistent in the Israeli store, specifically for bundles, an example will be avatars that cost 1 ILS each but a 4-avatar bundle of the same avatars will cost 5 ILS.
2. When Viking Attack pre-order didn’t work for me and wasn’t available through Vita, please extend the pre-order price for this week.
3. While the new search is nice and quick, please let us have the old keyboard search, at least as an option.
4. Please shorten the purchase process on the new store. Right now it’s too long: “Add to cart -> Proceed to checkout -> Checkout -> Confirm -> Download” is way too long.
5. My user comments still await moderation for no apparent reason. Other users around here use foul language and spam multiple comments and my comments who had never been rude or offensive always await moderation.

Dyad

LOL! I knew it! SCEE is the worst. What’s that, you say? This is because you put it in the publishers hands? Well that’s neat, justify screwing over your own customers that way. There are a number of policies you could have come up with to ensure their customers are not screwed over:
a) Require all games be released everywhere, unless banned.
b) Incorporate all the various ratings prices into the certification fees.

But you haven’t. Instead, SCEE doesn’t care about their customers and have continued to be perfectly happy to screw them over. You’ve even done it yourselves a few times, as SOCOM Tactical Strike never got released here (thus, impossible for me to buy).

That’s it. I’m buying a Xbox/WiiU next gen.

So we finally see Dyad get a release in amongst all the madness of the triple A releases. Still no Retro City Rampage despite it having been in certification since before it’s US release! Why are you commenting saying as soon we hear from the developers we will let you know when it’s your own processes that clearly need looking at? You promised the developer of RCR was going to appear on the blog this week I hope this happens either tomorrow or Friday as I don’t reckon it will today.

Aside from my own jealous desire for these games you are really screwing over hard working indie developers who now will certainly miss out on a ton of sales when both Dyad and RCR were due for release during relative quiet spots in the release schedule.

167

I’m with Liquid Solid I’m jumping to another developer next gen Sony have made a catalogue of errors this gen that I can’t be bothered with going forward.

15.9GB for R+C All 4 One?

Seriously need stop with retail titles for PS+, more PSN games…

@jawad

so where is that youtube app announcement you said soon but with SCEE it could mean years from now. like that army off missing content you guys keep ignoring.

169.1

Soon… really!

@Catkiller1:
Thanks Kat, just beaten Bulletstorm. Crysis 2 which is the GOTM is next on my hitlist.

175

the pricing in DMC collection is unfair comparing lets say LBP karting… LBP karting is 2 times DMC in £ but in € it is not. the pricing in € is always a bad conversion for us € consumers and UK people have always a unfair advantage. (nothing against UK people, just want to be treated equally)

Portal 2 in IGC for December and a good deal on the DLC for PLUS subscribers will make you and Valve good money… ;)

For those that keep complaining on delays on the EU PSN Store, the developer of DYAD issued a very interesting insight in what can cause these huge delays in an inteview with EDGE:
http://www.edge-online.com/news/dyad-dev-shawn-mcgrath-on-his-games-european-delay-its-totally-my-fault/

@Jawad

why isnt there yet the PS+ games for the Isrealian EU store? :(
plz tell me

I love SingStar. I’m more than happy for it to be on my XMB. I’ve bought hundreds of songs back when the songs that came out were actually any good. My hope is that one day they will get some more good songs available rather than the rubbish the team parp out these days.

I just wanted to voice the other side of the “SingStar icon” controversy. Not EVERYONE hates it… but I do think people should be able to move or hide it if they want.

I’ll say this again though.. BRING BACK REMOTE PLAY! And a decent “New This Week” section that covers ALL the gaming items (I don’t care about video).

A new this week section as has already been mentioned would be great. Some organising within other areas is also needed, have you looked at the addons section for littlebigplanet 2 on the store? it took a lot of finding to get to the dlc my kids wanted earlier this week

why no psn + stuff ??
was looking forward to it

I never was good in English but I bever new “soon”, “hang on”, “I’m sorry” and “I look into it” means “go away I’m not a gamer and I don’t care”.

183.1

Oh, I’m a gamer… I just don’t like playing CoD.

Okami HD, please.

Even though I play SingStar regularly, I can understand people’s frustration with the unnecessary icon appearing on the XMB. It should be an optional install like the TV channels, or at the very least, rather than appearing on the XMB like that, allow us to group it with our other PS3 games downloaded from the PSN in a folder. Less XMB clutter please!

It also urks me that they moved the trophies!

But, by far the worst is the new look PSN Store. The search feature is retarded. Finding new content is far more difficult and time consuming. Even the redeem code function looks awful (no hyphens).

Why is it that the US Store can remain the same, get new content on time, and not have old content disappearing?

Is Crysis 2 up on the store yet i cant see it

@OttoT

atleast they have enough new motto’s 2 pick from instead off that joke MAKE BELIEVE. cause they are bisacly making us believe we will ever get any good content.

chrisboers
jes but ith needs to change drasticly very fast .
i beleave lots of mistakes are made by to many pers.
if u understend u have more work in europe then in usa
why not start first whit Europe rules ….blalala

= if u created games on ps3 tem are almost evry time good on every consolle , but stil some gamedevlopers are to stupid to understend !

same system in laws en language = dificult 1st then more esy parts .

will dead space be hitting the store?

You Must have missed my post..^_^..

WHY DONT YOU LIST THE AVATARS AND THE THEMES IN THE “HEADS UP”

And there are New Items this week i have just been on the store, and seen them

And Also Yet Again There are no Trailers for the new dynamic themes,

Just Sums up the whole store team imo’ LAZY !

Would someone please explain why the Gundemonium Collection has been removed from the store? I tried to purchase it but it no longer comes up in searches on the store

I would like to point out that it actually takes longer to navigate the store and with the new store design you have actually killed the impulse and casual purchases someone will make

Most items you have to search for, which means you have to actually know what you want to purchase in the first place. As the genres are far from complete and often the content is wrong its a pain purchasing anything.

It’s a bit like walking into a gamestation and they have nothing on the floor and the only readily available titles are the ones they want you to purchase on the counter, no browsing which means ultimately a loss in sales.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who likes to browse a shop in hopes of finding a game I never heard of or may have overlooked in the past.

hi jawad ..please reply ..can you guys put resident evil 2 back on the vita store. i heard it was pulled because someone said they couldn’t change to disc 2 on the vita. so the eu store pulled it without proper testing first ..because to change disc on the vita you hold down on the screen until a menu appears then go to switch discs… its that easy please put it back it workes fine. people that downloaded it b4 it was pulled say it works just some noob that didnt no how the vitas menus work. thanks and keep up the good work.

191.1

There are other reasons for this I can’t go in to detail with. When it’s ready to be made available again, it will.

192

November 7th 2012. 16:42 GMT.

Crysis 2, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Cubixx HD all missing from the Instant Game Collection. None have a 100% discount if found through search.

Before the new store arrived, new PS+ titles usually turned up between 3 and 4 pm BST (so 2 and 3 pm GMT).

Does the new store mean the usual store refresh time has changed?

I have to go out now so am annoyed some of these mega downloads can’t take place while I’m out.

Apologies in advance if this has been answered before, but…

Regarding PS+ for Vita, if you already have PS+ for PS3, does that mean you automatically also get Vita PS+, or do you have to buy the Vita PS+ separately?

Surely you’re not going to provide separate instant game collections for PS3 and for Vita, along with all the other Plus benefits for each console, for the same price of £40 a year?

Cheers.

dgnfly
o.0 mi foult so ragnorack tactics realy exists
on psp1 realy never seen before.
then posibelity to geting ith on vita = very slim

but i am awaiting ragnorak odysee .

I’ve already asked that in previous blog entries, but it was ignored… Fred, Jawad, please reply to this:

1) What happened to the Soul Calibur V music packs in the ITALIAN store? They’ve vanished without a reason, please do something, report to the main technical staff, who knows.
2) Will we ever get a discount for all the addons for Soul Calibur IV and V? (especially the latter)
3) Why Under Defeat HD costs 22 dollars more than the US digital version? It’s supposed to cost 30 dollars in the US, it’s still less than our 40 euros.
4) Will we ever see a discount for the Need For Speed franchise in the future? (except the new Most Wanted of course)

Nice store update this week. Sadly not for me. Great news to those who haven’t played Crysis 2 and Ratchet and Clank all 4 one. Shame there was nothing i don’t already have. Aw well hopefully next month will be better. And that’s great news about Vanquish on store. Loved that game from the demo then bought it on day one. Played it over and over again. Heard it didn’t sell well but i thought it was amazing so have my fingers crossed for a sequel.

Jawad, I like that list which TAL2008TAL has said in comment 10. I’m looking for the news on Kingdom hearts. From what i already know Kingdom hearts 1.5 reMIX has been announced as an exclusive for Japan only and that kingdom hearts 2 will be in 2.5 reMIX. Surely the rest of the world will be getting them also, right? Is it possible you could find out for us? I’m having no luck getting a reply about it.

196.1

If I knew about KH I wouldn’t be able to say anything. As it stands i actually don’t know anything about a western release. I do hope for it myself, personally. KHI with KHII gameplay? Yes please!

I can only assume from the lack of replies about Jet Set Radio Vita that it’s going to be one of the PS+ Vita games?

By the way, is Counter Strike GO now a PS4 launch title in Europe? ;)

198

probly the only reason they removed new arrivals is so you have to look around and find which then something else might catch your eye and your buy that aswell making them more money

workshed
jep + The Last Guardian + ff13 versus :) :)

Why can’t i gift a game to someone :( !!

i would be buying twice as much stuff !

@monoliet

ragnarok odyssey wordt meschien eind van het jaar of 2013 door gungho online entertainment hoop alleen dat het door gaat dokuro wordt dit winter als goed is. maar met dit waardeloos europe branch kunnen we elke psp game wel vergeten want is nog stted niets nieuwe bijgekomen bij Vita compatible.

dgnfly ik verwacht die game niet voor april/ juni
ik zou er ook liever vandaag dan morgen mee gamen .

sony is gewoon een ramp op vele vlakken .

Hey Jawad
Alas I only seem to have the vita version on my download list at the moment -sad face-

203.1

I’ve been informed the entitlement issue should be all resolved so this should now appear correctly for you. Again, please do comment back if not.

*Attempts to navigate the playstation store.

* Discovers all the menus are squashed because someone thought it would be a good idea to reduce the size of the store space by 50% whenever you open any menus.

* Attempts to find what he wants by search

* Discovers search doesn’t work*

* Comes online to try and find out where the content is… finds out none of it has been added despite asurances from SCEE that it would be there this week.

Do you not want our money or something? The store is a mess, the search doesn’t work, and how can you go from 24 hours ago saying ‘why yes Crysis 2 will be on the store’ to both that and the other games not being on there.

Just how is that possible? Can you explain how this is actually possible?

just so there is no misunderstanding here…. I buy a new game and send it to someone, not any of my old games that i already used.

you know….like steam has

HI Jawad.

Can i ask what happen to some of the dissidia 012 final fantasy music tracks.
I cant find them in PS3 but with PSP i can find them just fine. I would like them to be in the PS3 store because i cannot connect my internet that well to PSP.

Thank you for advance.

208.1

I’ll let the team know.

Hi Jawad,

Two questions of my own please.

Does ToeJam and Earl work on Vita? If not, why not?

And,

When does the video section of PSN get updated? Red Dwarf has been on three episodes of season X for over two weeks now and episode 6 airs tomorrow. :/

Many thanks buddy!

210

Is the store going to be updated one day or another? I’d like to increase my Instant game Collection…

Where heck is store update?! I don’t have anything new in the store whatsoever! No Crysis 2, no dicounted Fan Axxess. WHAT’S GOING ON? Are we going to get it later than usually or never?! You’re making fun of us?!

212

Ratchet and Clank All 4 One is already free. You just have to search it because it isn’t on PS Plus section yet.

213

Thanks Killegamer! I am downloading R&C indeed. 16GB? Amazing!

@jawad you missing the ghostlight game it should also be out today.

@ Fred why I’m I blacklisted then while other protest still on show eh. :|

215

Hurry up and update the store

So no Crysis 2, however Assasins Creed 2 and brotherhood (full game) is free… or at least was free, now it’s been taken off the PS+ freebies list.

Leaving no content other than the avatars

What is going on?

217

I’m currently wondering why they decided to change the store from the simple and easy to use old one to this new piece of crap. Finding anything on the store is a nightmare and the process to download a trial or a demo is annoying as hell. In my opinion the easiest fix for the store and all of the problems a lot of people are experiencing is to just return the store back to how it used to be.
