‘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.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:05 pm    

    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.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:29 pm    

    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!

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:06 pm    

    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?

spagetti69 14 November, 2012 @ 3:04 pm   6

Sounds fantastic.

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

Thanks again.

supersmith2500 14 November, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   7

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

Seiten-Taisen 14 November, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   8


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.

squidward88 14 November, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   11

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

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:12 pm    

    Sincerist apologise there! Error on my part.

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

A_Nonny_Moose 14 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   12

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.

Shift_Breaker 14 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   13

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.

lengendaryboss 14 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   14

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

Ankh-Morpork 14 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   15

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.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm    

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

    Mike Kebby 14 November, 2012 @ 5:23 pm    

    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! 😀


danielm1979 14 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   16

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.

MohdAKsnake 14 November, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   18

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 😛

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:16 pm    

    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.

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   19

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…

spagetti69 14 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   21

@ 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

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm    

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

AG_Systems 14 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   26

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

EddyBrockJr 14 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   27

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.

Bealinator 14 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   28

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?

Sh1nj1-sempai 14 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   29

Still no Resident Evil 2 for PS Vita?

supersmith2500 14 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   30

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.

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

We are now half-ways in November.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:29 pm    

    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. 😀

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   33


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?

MordecaiHunter 14 November, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   34

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.

    Fred Dutton 14 November, 2012 @ 3:26 pm    

    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.

THEBB1994 14 November, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   37

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

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:32 pm    

    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.

Bealinator 14 November, 2012 @ 3:13 pm   38

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 =[

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:34 pm    

    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…

prime1982 14 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   41

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 @ 3:14 pm   43

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

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   44

@ 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

geraint09 14 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   45

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!

Unicronic 14 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   47

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 @ 3:15 pm   50

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.

Ankh-Morpork 14 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   51


It’s not on the PSVita’s store. At least, it wasn’t the last time I checked. I know it’s possible to transfer it through a PS3, however I’ve heard it doesn’t always work and I’m sometimes without my PS3 for a week or two. (Travel a lot)

diogompereira 14 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   52

Any word if we’ll have Quantum Conundrum on PS+ instant game collection next week like the US did?

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   53



Is Sonic All-Stars also being released on Vita this week? Cheers 😀

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:41 pm    

    PS3 only from what I know but I’ve asked Sega to confirm. If it does you will see on Friday.

almighty-slayer 14 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   55

Black Ops Declassified WAS £39.99 on the store when they first put it up.

Then they jacked up the price by £5.


yesterday on the US store update the Americans were given choice of whether they wanted to download the Singstar installer or not.

Will we be given the option (choice) to remove this installer?

Also there are items missing from the store such as Gundemonium Collection? Why has it been removed from the store

As well as, yesterday people were asking on the plus update for vita if people would be able to add the vita items to their ps3 download list in order to download at a later date? Some people have responded you can but I would like for Sony to please confirm this

sully1311 14 November, 2012 @ 3:18 pm   57

Hey Jawad, could you get the Store Dev Team to get Bravia Sync/HDMI-CEC working on the Store so you can use a TV remote to navigate the Store?


PS Keep up the good work!!

E_Darkness 14 November, 2012 @ 3:18 pm   58

Where is Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus? JP PSN already has it 🙁

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   59

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is only £23.95 @ Zavvi & £23 @ Tesco online, not sure about in-store within Tesco. I may have to finally purchase it, at that price!

sterushton 14 November, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   60

Oi EU team, I refer you to the SingStar update for the US and demand and beg you to follow suit. It is not adware for them, please sort this out. And put the trophies back in their rightful place. Ta.

BubblesPL 14 November, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   61

Are there any plans to release Chrono Cross on EU Store in the near future? Americans have it for quite some time now. Also, any chance of getting Dino Crisis 2 here?

TripleKiIl 14 November, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   62

Does Portal 2 digital verson ever gonna come out to europe store?


So to sum it ip No CS:GO, RCR and where is planets under attack.
Overpriced PS vita download, BO II DE. 45 euro’s while 39 tp 40 in retail. When do we get an explaination why there is sucjh a big difference for downloads. for …. sake there is less cost for them.

Chocobo115 14 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   64

I have a dream, a dream about Xenogears on the EU PSN store, a dream about Chrono Trigger being on the store, a dream about chrono Cross beeing on the store, a dream about the Lunar games coming on the store.
Can you make the dream come true Jawad?

Unicronic 14 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   65

Another serious issue is certain games don’t show up in store searches such as Trine 2 & Dungeon Defenders. They can only be found in download lists.

Any chance for more PSOne rpg:s coming to PS3? Specifically Suikoden 1&2 and Chronotrigger.

darkhorus15 14 November, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   67

What a bummer that they’re running into issues with Spyro again, I hope that won’t mean we won’t be getting it before 2013 starts.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:49 pm    

    I wouldn’t get your hopes up for a pre-2013 release. I’ll be delighted if it does though.

Fearlessjay1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   68

Still no answer as to if Playstation Mobile will ever be released in places other then the chosen few. Seems a bit silly coming to this blog when most of the stuff won’t be released in that backward country of Ireland. It’s not as if there is tons of releases on the Vita.

Luizelgespuizel 14 November, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   69

The high prices are the faults of the publisher of the games, not Sony. Almost very Sony retail Vita/PS3 game on PSN is on par with the prices of retail shops.


Will Tekken Tag Tournament 2 or Portal 2 be appearing on our PlayStation Store sometime soon Jawad? ^^ Thanks


Oh wow BO II is even 50 euro’s for the vita.
Why is that, this way digital downloads wil never be popular.

RemyX-1988 14 November, 2012 @ 3:22 pm   72

The absence of both Retro City Rampage and Counter-Strike: Global Offense is getting ridicilous! I’m not interested in the latter, but I do want RCR! Please get this on the Store as soon as you can! Oh, and with the massive delay, I would suppose a little discount wouldn’t hurt?

Any word yet on Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus? It’s already out on Xbox LIVE Arcade in the Netherlands! Please release it, because I want to shell out the money for it since my PlayStation 2-copy isn’t supported online… sadly.

Darlo-Richie 14 November, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   73

Well it’s getting closer to the time of another Walking Dead episode, is anything going to be done to avoid a fourth successive delay? 🙁

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm    

    Hopefully it’ll be simultaneous. This isn’t a confirmation…

    Fingers crossed!

Ry_Ratchet 14 November, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   74

Any news on when R&C Qforce is out in europe?

BTW, will download NFS demo and Portal 2 patch

darkhorus15 14 November, 2012 @ 3:25 pm   75

And btw, about the Spyro classics… what issues could you possibly run into? I mean, we will get the US versions, and they have already been on the US store for ages, which measn they work, so what issues could there possibly be with it.

CoolRichy008UK 14 November, 2012 @ 3:26 pm   76

1 RETRO CITY RAMPAGE SOON they need to make sure its 100% ready before its released. 2 sleeping dogs DLC is out already n im gonna rebuy it & all DLC – 3 farcry 3 pre order is on ps store WOOOO deffo buying that as well – 4 when RCR is out i think we should all get it for free due to the delay or a 60% discount 5 NEXT GTAV trailer 4pm GMT ^^ its gonna be way better then black ops2

kid_Jump94 14 November, 2012 @ 3:26 pm   77

Is there any chnage of getting Broken Sword Shadow of the Templars (PS1) onto the ps3 or even better the vita aswell? as its one on my favorite games? 🙂

MissDreamer 14 November, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   78

Singstar should have been released as an app. Please sort this out and let me delete it from my ps3. Can you also add a filter on the download list on the store as well please. Thanks.


Any news on dawnguard yet as it’s been weeks,and I think it’s a decade you keeping us in the dark about it,is it ever coming out on psn.and are you working with bethesda to get it fixed.i would like an answer Jawad and not your usually one sorry no news or haven’t heard anything on it or email bethesda about.

CoolRichy008UK 14 November, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   80

add lego harry years 1-4 as well to ps store will you whats the gd of years 5 to 7 with out 1 to 4!!!

leonkenworthyuk 14 November, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   81

Where’s the Black Ops 2 season pass? I got the credit to buy it but can’t find it on the store and its not listed above? Am I looking wrong or is it missing? Cheers! Leon

Shana-Flame_Haze 14 November, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   82

I see the DLC for this week went up quite well but can I ask why the Mugen Souls DLC that was supposed to be up last week still isn’t in the store or showing up in a search namely the First Generation Bride Set, Gamer Goddess Set and the Lonely Goddess Set?

And any idea if we’ll be getting the other Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 avatars on the store like what the US have?

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 4:09 pm    

    I’ve raised the flag so these should be added under the main title page very soon.

    No avatars for them at the moment.


i seriously dont see how hard it is to put spyro on the eu store sony eu = BIG LET DOWN

Hey Jawad

nothing for me as the selection of titles aint my type.
on another note could you please let the people that are designing the store know that some content is still missing and that its hard to find things. in an effort to promote big titles everything else has been pushed aside, the search feature is handy and is the only real way to find what you’re looking for.
I would be great if when they updated the store again if a new section for all the content that gets released weekly could all be in one section and if the DLC wasn’t do disorganised, trying to find something takes forever without using the Search option because the store displays DLC by the name of the dlc and not the title of the game.

squidward88 14 November, 2012 @ 3:30 pm   85

@Jawad i think it was tiger woods 2010 not sure if it is vita compatible

thegothicwitch 14 November, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   86

Fred, Any news on lbp karting online pass, i rented it on lovefilm and realy want to play online

leonkenworthyuk 14 November, 2012 @ 3:34 pm   87

@de3bs0 the Skyrim DLC is still been worked on. For some reason the dlc will not function correctly with the ps3 versions. The lastest statement from Bethesda was they are getting close to a version worth releasing. Psn and sony are helping with the work but its mainly up to the developers to make a fix! Hope this helps! 🙂


Benedict Arnold Missions are still not free for Assassin’s Creed 3(digital PSN ver.) owners 🙁

Ubisoft went silent, same with psn community support forums….

Where or what is the issue ?


Any news on whether the digital version of Portal 2 will be released in the EU store?

AL3MERH_2011 14 November, 2012 @ 3:38 pm   90

Hi Jawad
1-Please we want to pre-order for two games Disney Epic Mickey 2:The power of Two and LEGO The Lord of the Rings.Please please Jawad.

2-Does your season pass game Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Coming to PSN Saudi?

Thank you for the good work.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 4:36 pm    

    Currently Epic Mickey 2 and Lego LOTR are available to pre-order in some regions.

    There’ll be more info the season pass in the future I have been told.


Hello Jawad and everybody else!

Do you or anybody else have any info how long Castlevania: Symphony of the night got delayed?

CookieMonsterES 14 November, 2012 @ 3:40 pm   92

Hey, Jawad, the Wipeout HD pack on sale is showing as not available and can’t be purchased, could you guys have a look at it to see what’s wrong before the sale ends? Thanks.

MohdAKsnake 14 November, 2012 @ 3:40 pm   93

@Jawad: thanks for replying to my comment concerning the Spyro games but still, I will continue keeping my patience which I managed to keep months ago after I shown my impatience. Sorry about that 😛

To the rest of the people who wants Spyro. Guys, I looked into the process of putting PSOne classics onto the store and from what I have learnt, it is a very long process. There will be a few mess ups in the “Q&A” process as it is all about ensuring that the games work properly without any faults using different emulators. It is sadly a long process and apparently, it is drastic for Spyro. Jawad did promise that Spyro will come didnt he? Try to have patience guys, its a virtue. Im not yelling at you, Im just saying that Spyro will come in some time, even I have been waiting for it for months. Anyway, here is the link of the process for the PSone classics if you dont know about it:


I still see no retro city rampage (although I hear we have news on the way so well done there), or closure 🙁

Also any news on when Tomba will be working on the Vita is most welcome, thanks.

Vigilante89 14 November, 2012 @ 3:41 pm   95

what happened to Dead Space? It disappeared when the store was revamped

The_Last_Ninja 14 November, 2012 @ 3:43 pm   96

Jawad you are lying, I had a chat with Brian Provinciano (RCR creator) last week, he told me the game was sent to Sony for validation like 2 month ago.
They have nobody working on RCR any more, only few patchs update.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 4:42 pm    

    Why would I just lie? As I said, we’re hoping to get a piece out that’ll shed some light on the situation.


Hi Jawad,

I asked this last week, but is there any chance of removing the minimum £5 top up on the PSN store?

Nintendo let you pay just the required amount for dlc etc on the 3DS…

Be great if Sony would do this??

theresurected 14 November, 2012 @ 3:46 pm   98

any idea when lone survivor is out?

luke858585 14 November, 2012 @ 3:50 pm   99

Resident Evil 2 back for Vita please? Was it taken down because one person did not know how to change discs on the Vita? I hope that person is happy now knowing they screwed it up for everyone else.

AsmodeanBT 14 November, 2012 @ 3:50 pm   100

Per usual SCEE is just full of fail. The only thing you seem even halfway adept at is (CENSORED) people off and spamming our XMB with crap we don’t want.

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   101

I managed to purchase Tekken Tag Tournament 2 with Snoop Dogg DLC for £18.65 after using some credit with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 & my Midway Arcade Origins for only £13.85 have now been dispatched 🙂

Judging by past experiences with them, I should receive both tomorrow 🙂


Alien Breed for me! – just as soon as PSM rolls out in Ireland that is.. :/

WitheredBlossom 14 November, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   103

Hi Jawad,
are there any news about the fourth Eternity Shards DLC for Dungeon Defenders? It came to the US store approx. 2 months ago but it still isn’t on the EU store.
Thanks in advance.

AlexPSN89 14 November, 2012 @ 3:55 pm   104

@ Jawad:

Hi Jawz, sorry if I’m later than usual today. I hope it’s not too late to get a response!

But, alas, my question is something that by now rhymes with my nickname: what about Spyro? Last week you said that there are a few issues that need to be fixed, but… can you be more specific? Maybe a level doesn’t load? Or *chuckles* the QA guys can’t get past the game’s own anti-piracy system? (That’d be hella ironic… sorry.) Whatever the reason, can you share what you know?

Also, I posted a “help us SCEA” on the US blog. So my question is, given the NA store’s way bigger selection of PSOne Classics… are they assisting SCEE in any way?

Thanks in advance for any possible answer.

AlexPSN89 14 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   105

@ Jawad (P.S.):

My anti-piracy joke is a reference to, of course, the third game in the trilogy (Spyro: Year Of The Dragon).

Yep, my previous comment was written in a hurry. With the second question, what I really meant was “I posted a ‘help us SCEA’ comment on the US blog”.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 4:45 pm    

    I’m hoping to find out the extent of the issues some time this week. Whether they are big or small, I do not know.


Shame the Spyro games are taking so long, hopefully whatever problem you guys are facing will be sorted eventually though, it would be most excellent to have all three on my Vita.

Also, what is happening with Symphony of the Night, Konami said it was coming a few weeks ago for like £7.99 and then you guys said it wasn’t, and there hasn’t really been any updates on that yet, would have really liked to have it by now.

I think the only thing I will be getting this week is the NFS Most Wanted Demo, here’s hoping for a few more exciting releases in the run up to Christmas.

Stonesthrow 14 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   107

Wait, has CS GO not released yet? I’ve seen my friend playing it up untill Black ops 2 arrived. Oo
Anyway, nothing for me this week but I still got a list and there have been plenty of great releases these last months. Still gotta get Okami first and foremost :p Trying to hold out for a pricecut 😉

Ants_Pai 14 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   108

Thanks for the reply Jawad, I’ll look forward to Tekken then :3

AndyBeans 14 November, 2012 @ 4:00 pm   109

And amongst the “AAA” crap there are a couple of diamonds, Portal 2 and Sleeping Dogs DLC!

At least third party companies are still making interesting, more mature content, even if Sony is trying to remarket the PS3 as a crappy nintendo kiddy machine! I swear one more spammy email about Wonderbook or that crappy Smash Bros clone and I’ll be moving to XBL as the only decent exclusive on the horizon is The Last of Us!

Furiekins 14 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   110

Hi Jawad,

I asked this last week, but is there any chance of removing the minimum £5 top up on the PSN store?

Nintendo let you pay just the required amount for dlc etc on the 3DS…

Be great if Sony would do this??

I agree it would be nice, but Nintendo also force you to pay a minimum of £5 to buy off the 3DS store. In fact, you have to buy in multiples of £5. At least on the PSN store, when you are paying over £5, it’s the precise price.

I know this as I still have a useless £2.24 credit on the 3DS store from buying two things for £7.76 and having to put £10 credit on to cover it. I’ve recently tried buying something for £3.50, but still have to put £5 on it. So I don’t know where you get that it’s not like that on the 3DS?


Just wanted to point out that Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (PSP) doesn’t actually show up under the PSP Games > M-L category on Vita but it does show up via search, why is this, it’s available to play?

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 4:04 pm   112

@ Furiekins

I also agree as it’s slightly annoying.

A handful of times it has let me pay the desired amount instead of adding a minimum £5 regardless.

annevandam 14 November, 2012 @ 4:05 pm   113

Why is there no demo for the Vita version of Need For Speed Most Wanted? I’m interested in the game, but I’m not going to buy it without playing a demo first..


Only thing even remotely interesting is the MW demo, to echo those on another post, will there be a Vita demo?

Apart from that, all I want is CS:GO.

Also, the new store is terrible. Don’t fix what isn’t broken.

critter44 14 November, 2012 @ 4:07 pm   115

I also just seen that the US were given the option to download the Singstar installer from the Store and weren’t subject to it being stuffed under their nose like we were and was wondering is there any progress on the option of removal for us lab-rats?

DrClayman 14 November, 2012 @ 4:08 pm   116

No “new” news for CS:GO? You’ve never shared any kind of news, not in the slightest. I don’t understand all the secrecy to be honest, can’t you at least confirm if there is any activity to try and bring it to the store, or if that’s never gonna happen? I don’t want much, just a sign that it actually is on your radar, or not. If it’s never coming, then just say so, it will save us from hoping week by week to see it up on the store. Cheers.

Catkiller1 14 November, 2012 @ 4:10 pm   117


You must have missed a previous post but please can you help.

Gundemonium Collection & the individual titles that are included within that collection: Gundemonium Recollection, GundeadliGne & Hitogata Happa, are missing from the store also. Please can you look into this?

Kind Regards

Skookie30 14 November, 2012 @ 4:10 pm   118

I’m not impress with today store update we didn’t get any ps1 & ps2 classisc for a while why?

Oh we’ll you save me money, I shall try again next week eh. 😐

SSJVEGETA2007 14 November, 2012 @ 4:13 pm   119

Worst update in a long time, nothing worthwhile at all :/

apostolis81 14 November, 2012 @ 4:16 pm   120

Very bad update for ps+….

taurus82 14 November, 2012 @ 4:20 pm   121

Yay Studio avatars, and have they (The Studio) been given permission to make music visualisation yet?
Please answer, as I have not asked this for some time.

Fantastic Four table will also be downloaded.

rozzingxo 14 November, 2012 @ 4:22 pm   122

Modnation racers i downloaded the FULL game for free with ps plus, not the trial, the full thing, but it has a orange logo next to it… what is this? Thanks

D_O_G_87 14 November, 2012 @ 4:29 pm   123

122 the game you downloaded was not free but ps+ members can download a 60 min trial if you want full game it costs

Bjarno86 14 November, 2012 @ 4:30 pm   124

Please get Portal 2 on PSN soon and with a PS+ discount like in the US 🙂

rozzingxo 14 November, 2012 @ 4:32 pm   125

124 i know you can, when you go to download it you shows Full Game or Full Game Trial, both are free. not heard anything about the actual game being free so just was just making sure on what ive just downloaded :L


@87.thank you think I’ll just ask you if I have questions cause Jawad ignores me every week.

matdub69 14 November, 2012 @ 4:33 pm   127

Seriously sony! Black ops costs $70 dollars on psn or i can get it for $55 at dick smith. What happened tp psn being cheaper than cartridge? I can save fifteen dollars up front and then if sell it (which is my right whether you like it or not) I can get twenty dollars as well. In other words HALF THE PRICE. Please grow some brains or it will be a cold day in hell the next time I buy an A+ title in digital form.


And we back to stupid the Studio avatars,whats wrong with getting us little big planet karting or black ops 2 avatars.ohh and your heads up gets later every week 3:20pm.what happened to 3pm one

Hi Jawad
Any news on the release of Tomba on the vita in EU?
Best regards

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:03 pm    

    Not yet. I think they’re currently looking at a fix for what released previously.

You_Better_Hide 14 November, 2012 @ 4:39 pm   130

What a lousy store update this week, especially for ps+ users. Disgraceful about retro city rampage, should have been out ages ago. Sort it out please.

GenocideHeart 14 November, 2012 @ 4:42 pm   131

So, Jawad…

Again, I’m not normally one to complain, but would you kindly explain why we Euro players are stuck with that revolting SingStar icon on our Games section, while the ‘Murican customers get to choose whether to download it or not from the store without an INVASIVE, UGLY, REPULSIVE-LOOKING icon stinking up their XMB?

I’m sorry, but I’m tired of the EU audience being treated as the guinea pigs on which to ‘test’ things before they debut in America. Either saddle them with the same repulsive icon we got, or delete that icon and let *us* decide whether to download it off the Store or not, like the US people do.

And I’m still (CENSORED) for last week’s debacle with the Mugen Souls DLC. Again. I’ve been patient for the last two years, rationalizing your mistakes as attempts to innovate, but seeing how you’re all blatantly ignoring the overwhelming negative feedback you’re getting about various things, I feel it’s time to take the kid gloves off. After all, unruly kids need to be disciplined.

I’m hoping you’ll take these few words to heart. I’d hate it if you kept going down this slippery slope with no bottom in sight you’re on.



Give us a option to deleted singstar like you have with the USA,if I have to see them two prats with sunglasses pretending to sing,I swear I’m gonna come to SCEE offices and stand next to you with a singstar mic and do the same pose infront of you see how you like it.

You_Better_Hide 14 November, 2012 @ 4:43 pm   133

Also your prices are too damn high. Vita black ops is $20 cheaper for physical copy, not to mention need for speed is more expensive through you guys. I think you guys are ripping us off here. Your price conversion sucks, who ever prices this crap should be taken out back and shot.

crusher915 14 November, 2012 @ 4:49 pm   134

Any chance of an Older version of Fifa to become free on Ps Plus?.

arnoman14 14 November, 2012 @ 4:50 pm   135

I want to ask an important question here:
Can you make it possible for us to download ps vita games and demo’s with media go? Because in the week i’m at school (i also sleep there), but i don’t have access to a wireless network, only one where you have to log on on a site before you can use it, but the ps vita can’t load that site, so i always have to wait till the weekend to download demo’s and games. But next week i get 2 games of ps+ that i really want to play, and i don’t really want to wait till the weekend before i can download and play them. Please respond

GenocideHeart 14 November, 2012 @ 4:51 pm   136

Oh, and by the way? The Mugen Souls costume DLC for Fyuria, Noire and Vert that was SUPPOSED to be on the Store last week STILL is nowhere to be seen. Just… what… are… you… DOING? I can’t recognize you all anymore. And the new store makes it ridiculously hard to FIND the stuff I’m looking for, especially for older games. I really recommend taking it down and fixing its messy interface, because right now it’s the poor, little, deformed brother of Steam that everyone points at and laughs.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:04 pm    

    I am aware of this and have asked for this to be fixed. Please hold on just a bit longer 🙂

TwinBlade04 14 November, 2012 @ 4:52 pm   137

Hi Jawad!

I know it’s not in the store update you posted, but shouldn’t there be a bundle with all the Tekken Tag 2 movies released today (4+5+6)?
I’m asking this because there was one for 1+2+3+tag (it was called “bonus movies pack A” if I’m not mistaken) and another two bundles for the bonus tracks.


great 2 see you guys are just making a mockery out off yourself.
constant lies never any content 2 show are you guys even working in the gaming industry cause i haven’t seen any good games released new or classic.
no new app like the youtube app U.S got some time ago.
only thing we ever see from you guys are fake promesis off improvement like Freds we will see improvment inabout 2 month and while the 2 months are almost over we have only seen more content missing nothing new being added. and the most horrible customer service.
SCEE should be ashamed off itself 2 bad sony fanboys are 2 stupid 2 see all the faults, sony promotes failure just look at Andrew House SCEE is the most horrible region yet he get’s promoted with failure.

Furiekins 14 November, 2012 @ 4:56 pm   139

If you look at the pricing, it’s all down to the publisher. Activision and EA games are a stupid price, but Sony first party software and Sega’s are lower than high street retail (on release).

Sega and Sonic Racing 2 shows this at £29.99 which is equivalent/close to most online retailer’s pricing and will be cheaper than high street prices.

silmorat1 14 November, 2012 @ 4:56 pm   140

A note for any Zen pinballers out there looking for more tables go to the marvel pinball game on the store, You can get the Marvel vengeance and virtue pack of 4 tables for £6.29 instead of £7.99 – just import the tables to zen pinball 2 and away you go. The pack includes ghost rider,x-men,Thor And moon knight tables.
I just bought today and importing now to play on my Vita.

RoLovegaming 14 November, 2012 @ 4:58 pm   141

Hi Jawad and Fred, I have one question about Assassin’s Creed.
The Assassin’s Creed® Complete Pack contains: Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations and all dlc from this games?


a7md1990 14 November, 2012 @ 4:59 pm   142


There is a severe problem with the digital version of Uncharted 2, I can confirm to you that the issue exists across all PS Store regions.

The two DLC map packs are simply not compatible with the digital version. We tried to speak out to Sony by e-mail, and also noiced out the issue here in the technical PSN forum but there is literally nothing promising, we get replies like, delete game data and such, but no, the problem exists in the digital copy itself, it is just a faulty version.

Please Jawad voice this to everyone in your offices, the thread I made a while ago about the issue is still active, you can find all the details in there thank you.

Ahmed Saeed

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:08 pm    

    The dev team are working on some issues that have recently been raised so hopefully these kinks will be ironed out very soon.

MordecaiHunter 14 November, 2012 @ 5:01 pm   145

JAWAD why you never answer the question

Why is there No Trailers for the new dynamic Themes ?

Do you expect us to buy them without knowing what we are going to get

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:12 pm    

    It’s not something I have control over. It’s dealt by a different team entirely. Why they do/don’t add them I currently don’t know. I’ll see what I can find out.

    The obvious case is if there’s no preview video supplied then there’s no preview video for the team to upload.

a7md1990 14 November, 2012 @ 5:01 pm   146

I’m really sorry it doesn’t seem to allow me to post the entire adress, but it is right there in the community forums, PSN technical section.

cause we were the test subject for the new store and other horrible things like the icon. and as we all know by now sony sees us as 3rd rate not important 2 reply 2 or give any content. and with SCEE you won’t get a honest reply just some vague excuse.

Panos_GRE 14 November, 2012 @ 5:04 pm   148


NFS MW for the Vita is amazing. Get it, you will not regret it, especially if you don’t have the console version.

WeaseL72 14 November, 2012 @ 5:05 pm   149

The full game trials for PS+ is a big joke , only 37 for the about last 2 months while the US store has now over a 100.

Salami85 14 November, 2012 @ 5:05 pm   150

get your straight up and keep the DLC as planned god (CENSORED), if you listed Mugen Soul DLC from last week, then it should be there ffs… even the new PSN is utterly garbage.

Onna76_NL 14 November, 2012 @ 5:06 pm   151

Hi Jawad I have a question for you, I have a Sony Xperia Go and I wonder, when will Holland get PS Mobile and is it compatible with the GO serie?


Thank you Catkiller

for bringing it to his attention as I have asked for 3 weeks in a row only to have it ignored

now as he will respond to you maybe you can ask him (please) if we add the vita plus items to our ps3 download list can we download them at a later date to a vita

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:11 pm    

    Chris is currently chasing that so I’d advise keeping an eye on his Plus blog post.

MordecaiHunter 14 November, 2012 @ 5:08 pm   153

dont trouble yourself for a answer jawad

ill email disruptive publishers myself get a answer from them, but i know what the problem will be when they do reply,.

Panos_GRE 14 November, 2012 @ 5:09 pm   154

Jawad, I’m sure you are a smart, logical person so you must see too that the pricing for digital games is ridiculous. How come you guys haven’t taken this up with the publishers yet?

I mean, they must be interested in our feedback when they try to sell us their games. It just doesn’t make any sense. It is as if they try not to sell digital content. Unless they think that having a game in digital form is some sort of an advantage that should come at a higher price.

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:17 pm    

    I’d love to answer this in detail but sadly I cannot. The team do discuss pricing very regularly, I’ll give you that.

    Sorry for the lack of clarity on it, but hey, my hands are tied.

Graffin_G 14 November, 2012 @ 5:11 pm   155

SCEE are simply incompetent. Missing content. Overpriced content. Delayed content.

With the new look store that’s become a nightmare to navigate and a search which is useless (can’t even find the new Portal 2 DLC with it), that’s the last straw for me.

Everything used to be grouped under games/add-ons and all the latest stuff was so easy to find. Now it’s an unusable mess of icons.

I’m just sorry i’ve sunk $1000s into my PS3 with games and DLC and should have gone with an XBOX instead. At least i’d get better support and backwards compatibility.

Panos_GRE 14 November, 2012 @ 5:13 pm   156

Can I ask what is the origin of your nickname?

Lance_87 14 November, 2012 @ 5:15 pm   157

hey Jawad, remember my question from last week? i asked about the “missing” DLC for Soul Calibur V… well i’ve found them! however, they’re under the main section with all addons for all games. you know, scattered through 7000+ entries! These are the music packs i was looking for:

Original music from Soul Blade (1.99)
Original music from Soul Calibur (1.99)
Original music from Soul Calibur II (1.99)
Original music from Soul Calibur III (1.99)
Original music from Soul Calibur IV (1.99)

    Jawad Ashraf 14 November, 2012 @ 5:19 pm    

    Sadly there are a few cases like this so I’m reporting everything anyone flags to me. It may not appear in the Game page straight away but I will will (and have been) be flagging them all.

Lance_87 14 November, 2012 @ 5:15 pm   158

i’ve also found other DLC bundles scattered through the main DLC pages (again, prices are in Euros, names are roughly translated from Italian, sorry):

– Triple sexy costumes set (4.99) with the two Sexy costumes and the Maid costumes
– Triple modern outfits set (3.99) with the firefighter costume etc.
– Triple head accessories set (3.99) various headgear
– Triple personalization set (3.99) with the military camo etc.
– Super armors set (6.99) with the ancient armors etc.
– Tekken costumes and miscellaneous set (3.99) with the two Tekken addons and Klonoa/Pacman/etc. stuff, i’ve already talked about that in the previous post

can you please add these entries to the main game page? there should be already 40 addons as i speak. it’s a pain in the (CENSORED) trying to buying all of them. you have to scroll a LOT.

ps: all this applies to the ITALIAN store, dunno about the others.

Lance_87 14 November, 2012 @ 5:18 pm   159

please ignore the “i’ve already talked about that in the previous post” part from post #157, lol. i’ve failed at copy&paste from a different site.

thewanderer34 14 November, 2012 @ 5:19 pm   160

I know this may not be the place to post this so apologies .
Yesterday there was a post about new movies being available inc the amazing spiderman. It stated that it would be available to rent but in the store it is only available to purchase. Was the original post incorrect or is this another mistake ? I did ask on the original post but didnt receive a response.
Thanks in advance.


“We’re hoping to have the developer on our blogs soon to provide some insight on the wait.”

they actually provided this weeks ago, but it’s been in QA ever since.
or just lost, much the same thing at scee.

CabbageBloke 14 November, 2012 @ 5:22 pm   162

How long are you lot at SCEE going to keep towing the line that you have no information regarding CS:GO? This total lack of information is pathetic to put it bluntly. Tell you what, why dont you get the developers of the game on here to explqin the situation, seeing as the staff at SCEE dont have that ability.

PsychoDantis 14 November, 2012 @ 5:23 pm   163

Any chance of a sale on the Gravity Rush DLC to tie in with the PS Plus thing?


thank you Jawad for responding


Right no reply to my singstar icon question,where is SCEE HQ based I’m coming though with my sunglasses and singstar mic posers and everything.

Andrefpvs 14 November, 2012 @ 5:33 pm   166

Hi Jawad, thanks for the update.

Some of us Plus subscribers & Vita owners are upset that we are only getting 4 games in the Instant Game Collection instead of 6 like the US.

Is the European Plus team aware of this? I’m asking since they stopped answering on yesterday’s Plus post.

Thank you!

Also no answer to my question. Untill now, i was always very happy with the service Sony gave us, but now they kinda let me down 🙁

SteffenD89 14 November, 2012 @ 5:38 pm   168

@jawad – US PSN got playsation all stars battle royale for preorder yesterday and we get nothing. The game releases next week. What’s the problem?

Iansabout 14 November, 2012 @ 5:46 pm   169

what would be the chances of getting the ps2 final fantasy games on the ps store i got all the ps1 ones now i want the ps2 ones specially x

vonhammer 14 November, 2012 @ 5:47 pm   170

I was hoping for PSASBR pre order on the store.Got the money ready for the game this week,but wont next week.Because I don’t know the store price (39.99-49.99) I wont be putting money up now.

SKIBADEE187 14 November, 2012 @ 5:48 pm   171

is CSGO a Valve problem? seems like we have been waiting way to long.

The_Last_Ninja 14 November, 2012 @ 5:48 pm   172

Your comments about RCR are:
SCEE is waiting from devs feedback/info
=> Meaning for you the game is not yet finished

The comment from RCR devs :
Game is finished for months, and was sent to Sony validation process, nobody is actually working on it (except for patches)
=> Meaning for them the game is not yet validated by SCEE.

So who is to believe ???

Since RCR is available on PSN US & on STEAM Worlwide (in MULTI5), and that SCEE have a long history of fumbled games on EU PSN, my mind is set.

BTW any news of Sine Mora ? Available for nearly 3 months on US PSN and worldwide on STEAM since last week ?

Gambe1984 14 November, 2012 @ 5:48 pm   173

All of us in PAL regions are being royally raped by SCEE.

Particularly here in Australia where we pay almost twice the price that those in the US pay for the exact same content, and that’s considering that our dollar is almost on par with theirs.

Then there’s the subject of digital downloads. Not only do we have to download them, and there’s no re-sale value, but they’re grossly overpriced. I’ve seen games for $79.95 on the AU Store that I could buy a physical copy of locally for under $60, and substantially less if imported from the UK.

Lastly (and not including my major displeasure with the new PSN Store), but why is SONY preventing Harmonix from releasing all of their Rock Band Network songs on the PS3? According to them, it’s SONY that is imposing a limit of 5 a week, and they can’t even get that right most weeks.

Graffin_G 14 November, 2012 @ 6:14 pm   177

Since the comment I just posted was marked “awaiting moderation”, I figured i’d go with a slightly softer reply.

Not much in the way of content this week eh. 4 ps3 games that can be bought at the shops. bah.

Any idea when we can expect Walking Dead episode 5 ? Looking forward to finishing that game off so i can replay again in full for a different experience.

DoYouLikeMyID 14 November, 2012 @ 6:19 pm   179

I’ve no idea who you have to give a kick in the rear to get the Spyro PS1 games through, but at least try to have them ready before 2013.

Panos_GRE 14 November, 2012 @ 6:21 pm   180

Thank you for the answer Jawad.

Can I ask one more thing? Can you bother Activision to include the PSP version of Call Of Duty Roads to Victory in the Declassified game just like they do in the US, because we europeans, are people too!

AaronSOLDIER 14 November, 2012 @ 6:23 pm   181

Black Ops – $49.99 / £44.99

This is why I buy 90% of my games from the US store now.

azakajam 14 November, 2012 @ 6:23 pm   182

Hey Jawad, I just wanted to ask about the 2.0 Vita update next week. Apart from PS Plus support, will there be any other new features? (I’d like to see folder support but I doubt that’d happen) If this has already been answered can you point me in the direction?
Thanks man.

Voodoo341 14 November, 2012 @ 6:25 pm   183

It really is completely pathetic that SCEE has no update on CS:GO after all this time!

It’s clear the game isn’t coming to Europe. Utterly pathetic.

GahLakTus 14 November, 2012 @ 6:54 pm   184

thank you

    Jawad Ashraf 15 November, 2012 @ 9:50 am    

    1. Yep. You can pre-order it now from PS Store.
    2. Most likely but nothing to confirm right now.
    3. This is still being looked at by another team.

CoolRichy008UK 14 November, 2012 @ 7:56 pm   189

Blurrkup 14 November, 2012 @ 7:59 pm   191

There seems to be an issue with the Fantastic 4 table on the vita. It downloads and installs but the game does not recognise it. I have downloaded the Zen Pinball update aswell. Could this be looked into please.

JOHNY--BRAVO 14 November, 2012 @ 8:01 pm   192

im pleased the usa were given the choice to have singstar or not displayed on their xmb, you’ve obviously realised the anger this created towards sony for implementing this on eu ps3s, i would like to know if sony are now going to implement the removal or option to remove the singstar icon for eu customers as others have requested.

Blurrkup 14 November, 2012 @ 8:06 pm   193

Don’t worry sorted it out. If you do it through the game make sure you download the demo. Just downloading the key will not work.

WildRushSykes 14 November, 2012 @ 8:25 pm   194

Is the Square Enix characther pack for sleeping dogs suppose to be 690MB??? Seems alot for 3 characther skins and 3 weapons 🙂

Voodoo341 14 November, 2012 @ 8:25 pm   195

Jawad – “The team do discuss pricing very regularly”

You really have to wonder what they’re discussing! How much more they can charge the idiots who buy digital content?


Hi Jawad, could You please answer me if there is any possibility that Final Fantasy VII, VIII and IX will be released on croatian PSN?


@190 Thank you!

DizzyQViper 14 November, 2012 @ 8:43 pm   198

At least your country has Neptunia mk2 avatars. All we get is a middle finger. Thanks for nothing once again NISA. And thanks SCEE for allowing this crap.

PL---PePe---PL 14 November, 2012 @ 8:59 pm   199

What about digital version of Portal 2? I think that in US both Portal 2 and DLC are available from the PS Store. And both are discounted for PS PLUS subscribers.

At LAST Bumpkins.. I mean Munchkins, Bethesda, the company that hates us, has managed to overcome PS3’s 256RAM and are finally releasing the first of Skyrim’s dlc! When? Next year knowing our luck and SCEE’s retarded release attitude…

Materia_Storm 14 November, 2012 @ 9:13 pm   201

Ninja Gaiden 3 DLC is missing from the store.
there is meant to be two Packs that include various DLC for one price Ninja Pack 1 & Ninja Pack 2 both for 7.99, the game might be poor but the content should still be there.



I’ve just purchased the DLC pack for the full album “Dookie” by Green Day for Rock Band 3 along with some other stuff from the store, but neither the songs from the album nor some file containing all the songs appeared on the download list, even though the price was deducted from my wallet along with the other purchases. The purchase receipt I got in my email also lists the album as paid for, yet I still can’t download it. What gives? Has anyone encountered the same?

Jawad, care to help me out here? I don’t really enjoy paying for DLC I can’t download. :/

ChunkyDroid 14 November, 2012 @ 9:31 pm   203


I can’t remember how long you’ve been running the store updates for, but I know in the past that Australian prices used to be posted, I believe it was before your time.

Please, I think we’re a big enough market to at least let us know what we’re supposed to be paying for the content, and I have enough trouble wading through the new PS Store looking for things as it is without adding finding out how much things cost to the list.

Also, someone needs to look into the Welcome Back freebies, if you download them from the new store’s download list, it comes up as a trial and unlock that the PS3 asks to send to a PSP. If you download them from the transaction history on the XMB, it is fine. I wasted a few gigs downloading games, only for them not to work, and unfortunately I’m capped at 8GB a month, so I was pretty cranky let me tell you.

issueskid 14 November, 2012 @ 9:40 pm   204

The new store layout is simply awful. Nothing can be easily found, the search doesn’t even bring up correct results. Try typing in “portal”, “peer review”, “in motion”, “valve”. You simply get no related results.

When searching for a product you cant narrow it down to a letter such as any game beginning with “J”, instead you have to scroll through a list of everything that you can arrange into alphabetical order.

The sort option seems to do what it wants. Sort by A-Z and you wont end up with a list of items in order of the games title. Neither will you end up with a list of DLC by it’s title. Instead you seem to end up with some sort of mulch of the two. For example “Tiger Woods” is the second hit under game add ons sorted by A-Z, purely because the DLC is “+0.5…”. If I were searching for Tiger Woods related DLC surely I would expect it to come under “T”, not by individual DLC name.

corto1976 14 November, 2012 @ 9:55 pm   205

Any ETA for PlayStation Mobile availability in Portugal? And the Vita Youtube app?

PLEASE READ……. its about resident evil 2 being pulled from vita after 1 user complained that he couldn’t change to disc 2, he said it has no option to change disc like on ps3 & psp so you took his word & pulled it .. but it works fine all he had to do was push down on the vita screen whilst hes on the game till a menu pops up and go to switch disc easy as that.. please please put it back up because i deleted it for space to try a demo then went to redownload to see it wasn’t compatible anymore.. i paid 7.99 for it and would be so chuffed if it was put back up because of that noob not checking b4 complaining … … .. … … thank you keep up the good work 🙂

Wrathchild68 14 November, 2012 @ 11:09 pm   210

I’ve not touched my PS3 now for weeks. Lets be honest here, SCEE are seriously losing a lot of customers and money because of the way things are right now and in all my years of gaming I’ve never known anything like it. In fact I doubt I will be back on mine in the future, I waited and waited for CS:GO and it’s still not here, over 2 months late, got that fed up I bought it from Steam. It’s just delay after delay, the online store is a shambles and I swear that Sony don’t want our money in the EU. Me and quite a few people I know have already cancelled our PS+ subs and refuse to buy anything from the PS store.

inflamedturd 14 November, 2012 @ 11:13 pm   211

oh sorry for these posts but here is the evidence of the noob in action please guys u must see it.. it the post with a screen shot of the coversation.. the noob thankin someone for telling him how to change disc……


Disappointing that RCR isn’t here again, but next week. Please!

Also, can you make the store accessible from the Vita via Remote Play again? Seems a bit of a step back to disable that.

Finally, PLEASE re-introduce a “what’s new this week” to the Store? It’s absolutely nuts that I need to refer to a blog post to find out what’s new in the store. Don’t you want me to find and buy stuff? Odd.

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

joke.. right?
navigating through the “new” store and searching for the content you really want, is well.. a disaster..
And since I don’t wanna invest to much time for such a simple things, like finding the right content, I will just avoid this nightmare version of a store. no current plans….. pff


Jawad as you never replyed to my dawnguard question had to get the answer from another user on here.where is the little big planet karting dlc gone(unlock everything and the karting t shirt) as I really like to download it,or will you ignore this question too.


That’s how you post the downloadable content details of Agarest?
Agarest: Generations Of War 2
Various DLC content available
Well isn’t that informative. I’m guessing that way we won’t know what’s missing like what happened last week with Mugen Souls DLC which is still missing. I mean is it because its just a perceived small title and not a “cool” game to be bothered to put the time in and copy and paste what’s actually out. I mean whenever a EA title is released, this blog post goes on and on with the amounts of DLC each and every one is listed and detailed, I’m looking at you Tiger Woods. I mean it’s not like you’d do it with other titles is it? Can you imagine this…
Call of Duty
Various DLC content available
I understand you’re busy all day but going to this “heads up” store blog post should be exactly that, a “heads up” a detailed post of what’s out. We shouldn’t have to rely on other sources (thank you Ghostlight Facebook) and simply scrolling endlessly through this new store layout when its updated and simply guessing if that’s all the “various available content”

Isamu_Dyson_ 15 November, 2012 @ 1:07 am   217


not really in reference to the store update but just a quick query, thought this was the best place for it

when you purchase hd collections on psn, can you then download each game individually or is it just one big download?

got very little space left on my hdd and was looking to get gow collection as it is on sale

thanks in advance

    Jawad Ashraf 15 November, 2012 @ 9:31 am    


    This depends on the way the game has been put together. Some are bundled in 1 package, but most are separate so you should be able to just pick and download individually.

vonhammer 15 November, 2012 @ 3:35 am   218

@Jawad,Fred or any other kind soul.

PSASBR wasn’t listed for today and comment 168 also said it wasn’t there.Turns out it is.

As I type this I feel I’ve answered the question,but would like to be sure.

I’ve added PSASBR and the extra content by preordering.But as of yet,I’ve added no funds.I got a mail telling me the date it will take payment.Will this only take funds from my store wallet,and not attempt to take money off my card.

The reason I think I’ve already answered this,is your not allowed to charge my card without me authorizing.I was never asked this during the process.
I don’t want to put £40 in the wallet if it’s going to try and take it off my card.Otherwise I’ve £80 looked into the store.

If it’s wallet only,that’s a cool system because a user can add bit’s here and there.I think you should look into putting up preorders at least a month in advance so people can benefit by gradually adding funds.

Thanks for any response.


Are there any plans on a discount for the modnation (ps3) DLC?
The game itself is 7,49 euro at the moment but the theme packs are still 9,99 each. That’s still the same price as on release of them.
US got a temporary -50% discount on the packs because of the 2nd birthday of the game back in may.

Eurobo0y 15 November, 2012 @ 6:43 am   220

Hey Jawad where is the rest of the Way of the samurai 4 add-on when will it be released?


Some problems inside the Store :

– Impossible to find and download the trial of “Cubixx HD”, I can only download the “key” (6 kb)
– I can’t find the DLC of Fallout 3


Anyone know where the little big karting dlc has gone (unlock everything and the karting t shirt) thanks

chrisboers 15 November, 2012 @ 8:12 am   223

I bought Motorstorm RC, and was succesful in getting it on the Vita. However, the PS3 Store only lets me download the 100kb key. Even when I select the ‘PS3 demo’, it still only downloads the same key. Trying to search for the game doesn’t help, as that also directs me to the main page.

Any help on this please?

Unicronic 15 November, 2012 @ 8:46 am   224

@ chrisboers This is the same problem I have mentioned on page 2 of this post.

I fixed this issue by going through my download list. There is some content missing from the store itself which is why this problem is occurring.

chrisboers 15 November, 2012 @ 9:00 am   225

@222: Thanks, but I don’t think this will solve my problem, as I haven’t previously downloaded the demo. I know this workaround fixes Cubixx HD (because I downloaded that demo previously).
I can manage for now, as I prefer to play it on the Vita anyway, but I hope SCEE can add this to the (pretty long) list of Store problems.
Oh, while I’m at it: The (Dutch) store has a lot of product pictures with Swedish/Norwegian text in it. So much for localisation… (I prefer English anyway).

    Jawad Ashraf 15 November, 2012 @ 9:22 am    

    Do you have specific areas, for example or is quite widespread? I’ve let the guys know in general terms for now but if you have more info to supply that’d be great.

DayzeeNL 15 November, 2012 @ 9:01 am   226

@Ishar I had the same problem. If you have downloaded the demo (you can find it using the search option, but it only gives you a 6kb to download), go to your download list and download from there. The file in the list will be 1600kb (-ish, don’t remember the exact size).

Anyone else having major issues finding content on the new store? Took me about 5 minutes to find the Portal DLC (and even then it was only 100k)


Hi, any news on psone games? Via regular release or import. Games like Suikoden, Xenogears, etc. would be unbelievably welcome. I know about the problems in europe, but could Sony not say wich games are being worked on? If something then doesn’t work out, a small post would be enough. This way a lot of frustration could be prevented. I do think that a more open approach to informing the Playstation fanbase would be much appreciated.

    Jawad Ashraf 15 November, 2012 @ 9:19 am    

    There’s one I won’t name just yet, though it should already be announced…

    The other is Legend of Dragoon, which I don’t know the exact status on but it should be coming if everything plays out well.


Hi Jawad,

I posted last week but didn’t get any response, could you perhaps respond to the following issues:

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. Another example is Metal Gear Solid HD for vita costing 73 ILS for each game separately but 169 ILS for both.
2. When Viking Attack pre-order didn’t work for me and wasn’t available through Vita, can anything be done with the developer regarding the pricing?
3. 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.

Thank you for the time and effort.

chrisboers 15 November, 2012 @ 10:11 am   230

@Jawad Ashraf: Out of the top of my head: Viking Attack is the latest one I noticed. Basically any text that has special characters in it except ë, è or é.
I’ll check this evening for specifics. (Sorry, not near my console atm)

@SneakCore, I’ve just started getting into the Deathspank games myself, don’t know about the unlock for Thongs Of Virtue but if you just put in ‘Baconing’ on the search it should bring that one up (it did for me the other day anyway)

AshishSahoo 15 November, 2012 @ 12:17 pm   243

Hey Jawad,
I have to ask few more things-
1. Its Dokoro slated to come to eu anytime soon? Looks really awesome!
2. When will Virtues last reward land on psn, as it has separate release dates for different eu countries?

A response will be appreciated as I am looking forward to buying these games.

I also asked a question about vita plus but no one responded. Can I put IGC ps3 games into my download list using my vita. I dont use my ps3 much and I wouldn’t like to miss on ps3 igc games because of that.

Cheers! 🙂


@chrisboers – If you have another account, use it to download the trial of PS3 version of MotorStorm RC. I was having this issue just with the Cubixx HD, and just downloaded the trial on other account.

For some reason it seems that if you pick the full game upgrade for game before downloading the trial, these days it’s much possible to get locked out for downloading the trial anymore.

Even if I go on my main account to look for Cubixx HD Trial via demos or search, I can see it and it’s size, but always just get the 6kb unlock key. Just gotta remember in future to have both (trial and full game uprade) on cart before checking out if this error is not going to be fixed.

Curtis620 15 November, 2012 @ 12:41 pm   245

off topic but i thought i just thought i would say that the PS HOME community are a bunch of ignorant tools with no social life .

Hello, don’t know if this question i got is for asking here, but you seem to answer questions about PSN so. today, i thought i would start singstar on my xmb, cause i remembered i bought some songs some years ago, and when i’m in the game i check my “purchase history” and look there the songs are. nice i think, but ONE big problem, i can’t download them, cause for some up reason they belong to another PS3 system, a broken one, not another account, and then i think, check if i can buy them again in the store, but NO, can’t buy them again cause they are in my “purchase history” so they tell me, go download them again. now, since my old PHAT ps3 is dead and gone, and my newer slim can’t get songs that belong to ME, i’m kinda pissed off about this. is this something you can comment on, or are my monet just wasted that i bought songs some years ago? cause this ain’t right!..


RAWR 🙁 angry face

This is wahay we can’t have nice things.

spagetti69 15 November, 2012 @ 1:53 pm   254

Christ, I meant why not Wahay.
My head hurts.

Still no Retro City Rampage.
The game is out on PSN in the US and Steam in both the US and Europe.

The only real problem here seems to be SCEE certification. I don’t see what a developer post is going to accomplish, he has nothing to apologize for. I do admire the subtle shift of blame from SCEE to the developer by promising that he’s going to comment on this nonsense. As if he’s going to be able to speak freely about this.

Catkiller1 15 November, 2012 @ 2:17 pm   256

@ Panos_GRE

Of course!

Despite popular belief, I don’t actually kill cats 😉

It’s just an online persona but it has several meanings. I served within the Royal Air Force for 6 1/2 years & grew up within a military orientated family background, as my father was an Officer and flew Nimrod Surveillance aircraft & served over 25 years!

If you take a look at this website: you will notice that Catkiller was an old surveillance aircraft in many guises. It also has a meaning of an inside joke from other recruits when I served. It’s a long story but within a week I nearly killed roughly 6 cats by accident as if I attracted them somehow & one ran into the side of my car lol! When something happens like that you get stuck with a nickname. I have used it for over 9 years now so if I ever lose contact with some people at least they’ll recognise the name. I understand some people would automatically perceive the name as nasty & horrible but not with the hidden meaning that it is intended for. People are too quick to judge people….human instincts really but as if someone who actually killed cats would be happy to use it as a surname?? LOL I hope you understand some of it now? 😉

CoolRichy008UK 15 November, 2012 @ 2:17 pm   257

ye what 251 said no onder people are moaning at sony for retro city rampage its gonna fill the gap till gtaV we want answers why it was delayed and i think if its delayed till december it should be made free for everyone

Catkiller1 15 November, 2012 @ 2:19 pm   258

*Not surname…..username….DOH!

CoolRichy008UK 15 November, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   259

wow cool Catkiller1 i was gonna ask what your name ment i was worried you kill cats and im glad i int one lol best username ever i really mean it 😀 hope ur ok and if you int got it yet get assasins creed 3 i finished all missions within 2 days lol i still got stuff todo like shopping lists LOL

Catkiller1 15 November, 2012 @ 2:24 pm   260

@ CoolRichy008UK

RCR free for everyone….never going to happen. If anything the only thing I can forsee happening would be a PLUS discount but again I don’t think that will happen either. The Developer has already stated on numerous other sites that he didn’t realise the huge task to release it within the EU. The US doesn’t have to take other languages or laws & legislations into effect when releasing something, that’s why most of the time it’s released earlier. there are many factors to consider that we would never comprehend.

It has also been mentioned several times within our Blog that the Developer would make a blog post explaining the reason for the delay & to announce the release date sometime within November so we have to be patient.

Kind Regards

Phantasyman 15 November, 2012 @ 2:33 pm   261

The thing is i wouldn’t be this angry, IF i could rebuy them and download them again, but that’s a no go. or are there some way to “reset” the things you buy? cause with this “restriction” on only have it on 2 systems/ 1 system and my other games i bought won’t be able to get them again EVER if this systems goes dead on me. yeah, that’s frekkin fun!!

Catkiller1 15 November, 2012 @ 2:43 pm   262

I’ll pick up Assassins Creed 3 a little further down the line 😉

I have Midway Arcade Origins, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Doom 3 BFG Edition, Medal Of Honor: Warfighter & countless other titles to eventually work my way through within the next 5 years lol! Getting Far Cry 3 next!

windsorblue01 15 November, 2012 @ 2:56 pm   263

@ MordecaiHunter if you look on the american store most of the themes have trailer or slideshow and as most come out there first i would look on there i know thats a fact because i tend to get the vampire themes that come out and i look on there first.


Right guys n girls,I’m in London SCEE HQ and tied up Jawad and the Sony employees and singing YMCA at the top of my voice doing the singstar poses,Jawad not crying yet but I think he’s giving in,jaward take away the singstar icon from my XMB or your ears get another blast of YMCA.

Mougurijin 15 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   265

Still no Guilty Gear AC+ yet?? so disappointing how much longer it’s taking than XBox. 🙁

XBox Live:
24th Oct 2012 – Japan, US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy
9th Nov 2012 – Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, …

1st Nov 2012 – Japan
“Sometime in November” – North America, Europe


I VOTE KEVIN BUTLER TAKES OVER FROM JAWAD,be so funny as he’s awesome and so funny.


@SneakCore, I’ve just started getting into the Deathsp.ank games myself, don’t know about the unlock for Thongs Of Virtue but if you just put in ‘Baconing’ on the search it should bring that one up, it did for me the other day anyway. See what you mean about having to put the dot in too!!
@de3bs0, I don’t actually have a problem with the icon itself, I’ve pretty much stopped noticing it to be honest. I AM worried though that I’ll get drunk one night and end up blowing loads of money on it and waking the kids with one of my expert renditions of some 80s classics 🙂

CoolRichy008UK 15 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   268

someone get de3bs0 GTAV to shut her up lol she is one mad lady.

CoolRichy008UK 15 November, 2012 @ 3:22 pm   269

Curtis620 15 November, 2012 @ 5:03 pm   274

yea ps home is garbage it’s full of panzys who think they are all cool & tough . nothing but a laughing stock .

vonhammer 15 November, 2012 @ 6:21 pm   275

Cheers for the link Jawad.

AzazHell 15 November, 2012 @ 6:27 pm   276

Jawad I need an answer for something I’m concerned about though it might seem petty; people have been saying that tomba! is having the same problem as alundra is having as well (the slowed down music and sound effects, stuff like that), when the said problems are fixed, do we like, download the fixed versions for free, or do we have to purchase them?

trickexp 15 November, 2012 @ 6:32 pm   277

Hi, i asked on my region support when playstation mobile comes to other countries can somebody tell us because czech sony doesnt know :-/…

vonhammer 15 November, 2012 @ 6:53 pm   278


Not sure if this is a bug,but I can DL the Vita version of PSASBR now without funds being taken.Same goes with the costume key and online pass.
I don’t know how PSV handles activation,so it could be normal.If I had PSV i’d test and cancel pre order to see if it was playable.

ukcrazyguy 15 November, 2012 @ 8:10 pm   279

Hi jawad, do you have any update on resident evil 2 for vita? Like others have said, it was pulled because 1 person didn’t know how to change discs lol. Il even give you 10p to use the phone to give the store people a ring and ask when they are putting it back on. If its not going to be put back on please could you advise where I stand in regards to a credit. Thanks

supersmith2500 15 November, 2012 @ 8:38 pm   280

There is hope that RCR might be out in about 1-3 weeks time: =D

DAVEGADGETBOY 15 November, 2012 @ 8:43 pm   281

I have a request, change the store back to how it used to be. The old store was soo much easier to use and had nowhere near as many problems as the new one has.

Pure_Mind_Games 15 November, 2012 @ 9:35 pm   282

You know, I think they made the store harder to navigate so you’d HAVE to come here to find everything that was released.

Seriously, fire the guy who came up with it.

Captain_Thomson 15 November, 2012 @ 9:51 pm   283

The Sleeping Dogs ‘Nightmare in North Point” DLC is displaying two different prices, on the add-ons page its listed as £3.19, yet when you go into it, its then listed at £4.49

was going to pick it up at £3.19 there as had enough pennies left for that

any idea whats going on?

When I’m trying to access Agarest 2 in finnish store it says “This content cannot be selected at this time”.

Is it going to be available at some point?

Curtis620 16 November, 2012 @ 9:28 am   285

sony will never listen to the ppl who it needs the most & those ppl are us . they all get together in a boardroom meeting & discuss what could be the best way forward . but it’s never gonna change & if you think 70 million comments saying change back the store will help then you’re wrong .


Since the store update a couple of weeks ago I haven’t been able to buy (another) paint pack for GT5 … and the Nuketown2025 redemption code for C.O.D: Black Ops II doesn’t work either … plz help


I’m sick of these mother****ing singstar icons on my mother****ing XMB.


how do you stop a pre-order on psn?


its ok i figured it out

Seanpy1982 16 November, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   290

hey can you help when will the blaco ops 2 season come to psn eu as the us already has it.

CoolRichy008UK 16 November, 2012 @ 4:19 pm   291

thanx catkiller1 meow lol

i hope farcry 3 and gta V will be longer then assasins creed 3 that i finished in about a week lol £50 wasted on a short game the last assasins creed was way longer

as long as gta5 has a huge map and loads of missions and stuff todo il be happy 1st thing im gonna do in gta5 is nick a train and cause a train crash 😀


@251,are you using a new account on your slim,if you are then make a new user go to sign up for psn and existing user type in your email and password from your old ps3 and bingo all the stuff you downloaded will be in your my doenloads and all songs you downloaded from singstar you’ll be able to download again,hope this helps and get back to me if it works or not,or you could do the same above but deactivate your old ps3 account and swap back to your new one to re download all singstar songs.

prime1982 17 November, 2012 @ 10:49 am   293

another broken item on the store, please fix it!!!

Sonic and sega all stars transformed demo. you can add it to the cart, but then afterwards, the 3 bars cycle and then error has occurred appears.

I have tried several times 🙁 , why can’t anything work on this service. especially when you have plus subscriptions bringing in more money.


really angers me , but in the end of they day you hurt yourselves more cause its putting me off spending my money on your products.

i can see my ps3 being solely used as my bluray player of being sold if this carry’s on.

this is my time to relax and not to get stressed and annoyed by a poor service.

The store is to slow and to many errors ! fix it and do your jobs properly and then maybe you wouldn’t have customers complaining on the blog space !

so much the the psn being down last week, didn’t to any good did it ?

supersmith2500 17 November, 2012 @ 11:18 am   294

You know Prime I want to relax as well but buggy store and constant errors doesn’t even help.

CoolRichy008UK 17 November, 2012 @ 1:03 pm   295


i downloaded gta episodes FULL GAME and when i goto play the in game radio the songs DONT PLAY


prime1982 17 November, 2012 @ 2:45 pm   296

error 80710D23 🙁 store is totally broken now can’t get into it at all and it keeps hanging my console.

full shutdown required! your store better not break my new slim console!!

CoolRichy008UK 17 November, 2012 @ 4:25 pm   297




3 ignore anyone who says full reset ps3 to fix it they dont know NOTHING and that wont work i tryed that as well


i say this on behalf everyone here BRING BACK THE OLD PLAYSTATION STORE the new one is more broke then a bank with no money.

so to recap ps3 game delays – games not showing up in the store – ps store refusing to load and showing a fake under maintenance message

this is not GOOD ENOUGH if they cant fix the ps3 store the playstation 4 will fail bigtime

prime1982 17 November, 2012 @ 5:27 pm   298

I’m on the store now finally, but it’s still not working i’m not getting the same error as you.

My shopping cart wont work and all it says is error occurred, no hint to what the error is mind you. lol

The longer they take to fix the more the shopfront is loosing impulse buys lol

it’s a tad frustrating when you have something you can’t fully use and for the past few weeks iv’e notice this seems to be a trend now.

13 days and the Wii U can’t take up my time. i’ll wait for the last of us and tomb raider before i use it for gaming 🙁

Annoying that i have to take these steps but hey maybe they will have it fixed by then. i can dream can’t it ? lol

prime1982 17 November, 2012 @ 5:30 pm   299

lol 100% fail on typing i should get a platinum trophy for that achievement


Dear Sony please may i have a plat for my outstanding typing skills lol

Go on , for xmas it’s what i want 🙂

supersmith2500 17 November, 2012 @ 5:35 pm   300

Not going on my PS3 until EVERYTHING IS FIXED!

supersmith2500 17 November, 2012 @ 5:36 pm   301

I’m sorry I have real frustrated now.

itsmechall 17 November, 2012 @ 6:56 pm   302

not only am i not able to go on psn but it keeps throwin from online game aswell, saying network error

CoolRichy008UK 17 November, 2012 @ 9:19 pm   303

supersmith2500 i would add you but your list is fuller then a cup of hugs lol

@itsmechall sony knows about it and will fix it – anyone else getting problems with ps store or not loading HOME etc write the error code down look it up or just tell sony.

this month’s ps3 magazine PSM explains why games are delayed i would post it here but im not gonna type the whole article because its 2 pages long

CoolRichy008UK 17 November, 2012 @ 9:23 pm   304

Before 2013 your kidding right we’ve been waiting for dawnguard since July,and spyro for 2 years,come on now it’s Sony the company that totally doesn’t care about the EU and would either give Japan and America it and just laugh at us.


Trophy sound) you have managed to last this long with Sony congratulations
