‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 14th November 2012

Leading the way on PlayStation Store this week is the fantastic Portal 2 In Motion DLC pack, which adds PS Move functionality to Valve’s classic first person puzzler as well as a selection of new levels tailor-made for the peripheral. Plus members can grab a hefty 30% discount on the pack too.


Also out this week is Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified. With a Special Ops Story mode and multiplayer action tailored for the PS Vita, this is the most intense handheld COD experience yet!

Elsewhere, Sonic and friends roar onto PS Store with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Take the race from the land to the sky or water and watch as your vehicle transforms mid race into a plane or boat.

The third instalment of the Agarest: Generation of War series. Agarest: Geneations of War 2 follows Weiss, a young man who learns he has committed deicide and now must become the ‘Vessel’, storing the power of the god he slew until he and his progeny can atone for his sins.

As usual, you’ll find a list of this week’s content below, including new add-on content for Zen Pinball 2 and Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz, and a demo for Criterion Games’ brilliant open world racer Need For Speed Most Wanted

Panic! On Playstation Mobile

And nothing else of interest

No CS:GO or RCR again? Dissapointing.


We’re hoping to have the developer on our blogs soon to provide some insight on the wait. The game is coming very soon however, and the wait will be worth it.


Sorry, this is RCR related and not CS:GO related.

CS: GO still stands as no information to share, sadly.

Retro City Rampage for heaven’s sake.

You must comment this. It’s already out on steam in Europe.

What are you waiting for? We need an official and a real honest ANSWER!


The official answer you want will happen soon. Fred is in touch with the devs so we’ll have something to share on why there has been a wait and when/what you can expect.


Can we please get Dracula X Chronicles on PSN? We’ve been asking for years now, and there are thousands of sales waiting for Sony and Konami. Can this please happen?

Sounds fantastic.

Any chance of Resident evil 2 for vita? Maybe Xcom for PS classics too.

Thanks again.

supersmith2500 14 November, 2012 @ 15:05

Jesus christ still no Retro City Rampage and CS:GO? Any chance you can tell VBlank and Valve what’s going on? -___-



How come there is no ‘free’ filter in the All DLC category?
Hope this is fixed soon, thanks. :)

Just a small issue, the new version of the PlayStation Store doesn’t work with Remote Play. Do you know if this will be fixed in a future patch to the store?

Hmmm Only thing I would download today is the NFS: Most Wanted demo…But I wont as I already own it. What a game it is though. If anyone’s on the edge about buying it try the demo now as you wont be disappointed.


Why is black ops declassified £45 on the store when you have £39 on here

How come i can’t put my tiger woods psp game on my vita


Sincerist apologise there! Error on my part.

Which version of Tiger Woods and is it listed as Vita compatible?


New Vita games costing the same as new PS3 games is a terrible decision. Vita needs some kind of software price limit (£30), or a lot more sales. A lot more.


Is there ever going to be a chance of re-organising the PSN store? Navigating through games with lots of DLC like Little Big Planet is nothing short of tedious and it’s even worse with the way the Music Section of the store is. Rock Band alone has over 2,000 pieces of content and then it’s all bundled with the stuff from Singstar, Guitar Hero and Rocksmith and it’s just impossible to navigate. Search doesn’t help too much either as some things I look for just don’t show up.


It’s possible it could happen in the future. No current plans as of yet.

lengendaryboss 14 November, 2012 @ 15:07

Jawad or fred, Call of duty black ops declassified is 44.99 on the UK PS Store not 39.99.


Will Valkyria Chronicles II be getting proper Vita support?
Also will the Valkyria Chronicles II bundle pack be available for our store?
Or perhaps just a price reduction for the game. It’s been the same price since launch.

Thank you.


Not at the moment. I’ll let Chris Howe know about the price, however.


Hey there,

Just to confirm there is no Vita support coming for the title I’m afraid, however, I am going to sort something out in regards to the pricing, as you’re correct, it is long overdue a reduction.

Thanks for the feedback, and support – always appreciated! :D



Rock Band 3
Various DLC content available

No (CENSORED) Sherlock!

Alien Breed on PSM? One of favourite games of my child… wait a second, I can’t play it because I was born on the wrong side of the UK border. Well, if you don’t want my money, suit yourselves.


Hi Jawad, is there any significant improvement for the spyro psone classics being released to the EU psn store and in other words any updates for them? Thanks and I know that you must be tired of asking the staff and looking at these comments every week :P


Sadly I had bad news today and there are some issues that need looking into. I’m not aware on the extent of the issues yet but I’m crossing my fingers they’re minor.

Fantastic Four Table for Zen Pinball 2 for me this week but I have more than enough to keep me busy, thanks to PLUS & titles that I have currently on my Hard Drive, that need some attention!

I get used to the update of EU Store…Nothing interesting…still…

@ ankh.

What vita support does Valkeria chronicles 2 need? I’m not aware.
Your right about the price. Too dear.

Hello Jawad,

is it possible to get a 10% PS+ pre-order discount for Playstation All Stars Battle Royale?

Of course I know that all PS Plus content is listed in the separate Plus post but I think it helps to have the new items listed in these posts as they are added to the store for clarity.

Previously I’ve seen people complaining that XXX PS Plus game is missing from the update simly because it’s not included in the Heads Up

Sonic transformed download size please???

@ Jawad

Any chance that Black ops 2 will be making its way to the PS store? I thought you said something about it last week but couldn’t find the comment. Anyway looking forward to NFS demo! Thanks


Waiting to hear back on if/when it’ll happen. It might not be for a while, though.

Any chance of more devices getting certified for PS Mobile? I’d love my nexus 7 to become compatible very soon!


Hello Jawad, how about the Street Race DLC pack for Sleeping Dogs, which should have been on the store month ago, any intel yet? Thanks.


I will look into it now.

Hey Jawad,

Do you know how big the NFS demo file size is? Got the game but leaving it till christmas… so this’ll be a good compromise. I’ll be playing NFS… but without opening my disc copy!

And an update on that content problem. For some reason those Welcome Back items are being classed as PSP games so when I attempt to install WipEout HD I’m asked if I want to transfer it to my PSP. I also share two games with a relative off their account and I’m getting a psychic tingling feeling this problem is also going to occur on that account. Do I just raise this with customer services to get it fixed?


Still no Resident Evil 2 for PS Vita?

supersmith2500 14 November, 2012 @ 15:11

So how long are we waiting for RCR then? 3-6 months I guess like Dyad? Plus, too late for CS:GO now since Black Ops II is dominating the multi-player right now.


Can’t say how long exactly.It could come next week if all goes well.

About Retro City Rampage you said yourself “Later this month” in October.

We are now half-ways in November.


From a statement provided by the dev, yes. These delays happen and we are hoping to have something for you guys to explain the RCR delay.

My dearest x-mas wish this year: Give us Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross.

Pretty, pretty please. I’ve been so good this year! So good that you could actually give them to us with a 50% Plus discount right away. :D


I think you might want to add to your reply to POST Number 2, that your answer was meant for RCR & not CS:GO, unless you want some backlash?


Excellent point! Thank you, it was indeed RCR related.

MordecaiHunter 14 November, 2012 @ 15:12

Will there be any trailers for the new dynamic themes or is that not a priority to sell them ?

oooh – the original Alien Breed! Tempting…

Still no RCR.. what happened to the blog post from the RCR devs that was supposed to appear 2 weeks ago? Can’t they even write blog posts on time??? :(

Any update at all on Retro City Rampage and CS:GO would be very welcome.

Is it going to take weeks, months, forever…?

Please communicate with your customers, SCEE.


I don’t want to promise a precise timeframe for RCR as that is subject to late change, however, it should be in the next few weeks. I’ll update everyone when I have a confirmed date. As for CS:GO, we still have no new news to impart I’m afraid.

Any news on spyro yet please or seasonal pass for call of duty black ops 2? Thanks


Post #18 has my Spyro response. There’s a couple of new issues that have popped up.

Black Ops 2 season pass I am waiting to hear on at the moment.

Oh, could you please communicate this to the powers that be for Plus? Ask if they could possibly pursue a 20% discount on Doctor Who for Vita? Love Doctor Who, but if I could get it discounted then all the better!

And can every item on sale get advertised clearly in the future? Bioshock is on sale for £5.99 on the Store and I only found out about it on HUKD, whereas it should have been advertised here. Definitely getting it because at that price it is too hard to pass up! Know we are getting it on disc with Infinite but the ‘free’ copy of AC with Revelations has put me off taking advantage of it.

The digital version of Call of Duty Classified is about 11€ more expensive than the retail version in Sweden!

How come?

any NEWS on spyro i know we have been waiting for ages with cs go n RSR but weve been waiting YEEEAAARRSS for spyroo =[


The wait for Spyro has bee extended even more, sadly. I hoping it won’t be long but I need to find out more details on the hold up before I can say anything further…

finally a game that matches the price at retail, nice one :-)

Sega all stars transformed : i would buy for my ps but i will have to pass this time and get it on the wiiU since no Mario kart at launch.

Enjoying black ops 2 on ps3 even though i’m not the greatest at fps :-S

A (Plus) discount would be very welcome considering the wait for these games.

supersmith2500 14 November, 2012 @ 15:14

Read his repiles at comments #2 and #3 and you’ll find the answer.

@ awwe_se

I was mentioned a couple of weeks ago that it was delayed & that the developer would submit a Blog Post sometime within November detailing why & when, it will be releases

When will the Black ops 2 season pass be available to download?

I’m just going to get RCR Rampage on PC, fed up of waiting for Playstation, Sony, whoever it is to get their act together!

An official answer regarding RCR is a text book case of too little too late. Over one month late. I really hope that the official response isn’t a PR filler. I can’t imagine anything justifying this and going into a crowded release schedule I think there will be a huge opportunity lost for sales.

Any plans for a digital version of Black Ops 2.?

hmmm well least we’re gonna get some info on CS:GO at least, not much here of interest for me this week, all i can say is don’t buy COD Black Ops declassified it is horrendously buggy in both single and multiplayer wish i never bothered

Carnivius_Prime 14 November, 2012 @ 15:15

I shall try the NFS Most Wanted demo. Still disappointed at lack of Retro City Rampage. And that Amiga Alien Breed is PS Mobile, not Minis so will have to wait til I get a Vita for that I suppose. Ah well. I’ll save my money today, cheers.
