‘Heads-Up’ Store update 21st November 2012

Prepare for battle as this week we launch PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. PlayStation’s greatest assemble to unleash crazy combos and signature moves in evolving arenas. Play in a variety of competitive or co-operative game modes or learn the ropes with tutorials and character trials. What’s more, purchase on PS3 and you’ll get the PS Vita version included. Who will you play as?

The final episode of Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead is upon us. Through the choices made in the previous episode, witness the events that are about to take place in this thrilling conclusion to a fantastic series.

DmC_FeaturedImage_PVWIMG

Elsewhere, Capcom’s DmC sees a demo release today. Dante’s latest demon-slaying adventure boasts familiar gameplay with a twist. See our recent Blog post for more on what to expect. If you like the demo, be sure to pre-order from PlayStation Store as you’ll get the Vergil’s Downfall DLC for free when it releases in early 2013.

AR-Screen

On PS Vita, show off your artistic talents and create your own virtual graffiti using a variety of tools and techniques in t@g, a unique Discovery App. Again, see our developer Blog post for more information.

PS Vita owners can also get funky with Sega classic Jet Set Radio. There’s also the very appealing (we all love Kinu Nishimura’s designs) visual-novel game, Virtue’s Last Reward, and acclaimed horizontal shoot ’em up Sine Mora.

You’ll also find that this week Sega’s deeply satisfying and gorgeous PSP title, Valkyria Chronicles II has been reduced in price and can be purchased for just £9.99/€12.99.

A packed week indeed, then. Peruse the list below for the full list of content coming this week, including DOOM Classic Collection, LEGO Lord of the Rings, Chronovolt and plenty more! Oh yes, and there’s also the Activision sale, which you can find more information about right here .

Have a fab week gaming! Maybe you’ll bump into a really bad Raiden/Dante player in All-Stars online. That would be me…

Retro City Rampage, yahoo!!!!!….. ehh.

The Lego Lord Of The Rings PSVita Price?????

2.1

This will be updated shortly, apologies.

@ Jawad:

Hi Jawad! How ya doin’, buddy? I’m back again to check the Spyro situation. Last week you said you’d ask the QA guys what was the problem, exactly, so my question is, do you have some more info to share? Or some vague date, for that matter?

At the moment there are some games keeping me busy, but Spyro would be perfect for me to start playing with my PSP on a regular basis once again.

Thanks in advance!

3.1

It’s possible it might release before 2013 after all, BUT as usual, I don’t want to be taken as confirming it. There should just be one or two more rounds to go through so it should be out early December assuming these checks go through without a hitch. Have faith!

Nice update, although nothing that really interests me.

Where is Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus (PS3)? It’s 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, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, …

PSN:
1st Nov 2012 – Japan
still waiting – North America, Europe

The Japanese version of the game is pretty much (completely?) identical to the English version.

It’s already on PSN, but not in this region on PSN…
It’s already in this region, but not on PSN in this region…
Why the completely unnecessary massive delay?

BEST

NEWS

EVER!

(Great update, by the way…)

5.1

Oh, oh, oh, oh!

When are You removing the singstar icon?

6.1

This isn’t something I work on or this post even relates to. I’m sure your concerns are being noted, however there won’t be a response from me on this, sadly.

good week for vita owners – gravity rush (free!), jet set radio, chronovolt (free!) and sine mora all for me!

That Vita update seriously makes me think about getting one.. Great update :)

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is supposed out on PSN this month. And now there is only one week left :|

PSVita compatible PSP Games – there aren’t coming out no more, are they?

10.1

They’re rare and release without much notice.

11

Best Vita update ever.
Thank you so much. Long may it continue – it even made me buy Plus (even though Santa is bringing me a PS3)
Well done guys, I know you get a lot of stick on here but this looks very promising. PLEASE keep it going.

DmC demo, that alone makes it a good week. :)

Question: Will the Disgaea avatars ever arrive in Belgium?

grtz!

12.1

There were some released previously, no?

The DmC demo should calm a few people’s fears down somewhat. Definitely give Son of Sparda mode a shot.

Carnivius_Prime 21 November, 2012 @ 15:10
13

Still no Retro City so not much for me to play out of this lot but I have downloaded Uncharted Golden Abyss and the other Vita freebies for when I get a Vita (likely in the New Year).

I’m tempted by All Stars but can’t really afford a full price title at moment. Again maybe in the New Year since I’ll then get to have it on Vita too. :)

14

Any chance that I Am An Air Traffic Controller: Airport Hero Haneda will be making its way to the PS store?

Store has updated. Just a heads up. Been live since around 2.

15.1

Yep, most of it went live earlier today. Hooray!

martinfletcher89 21 November, 2012 @ 15:10
16

when will hitman be availble on psn?

wow great update any chance of plus for vita download on my ps3 so in future I get a vita I have them cheers

k1ll1ng5pr33-NL 21 November, 2012 @ 15:11
18

Is the Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning price (€30) correct? The US price is $60.

are we able to add vita items to our ps3 download list to download to a vita at a later date

19.1

Yes.

20

i hate store updates eu always get shafted no retro city no cs waste of time and money

20.1

Those are the only 2 games you’d ever want? A number of great titles today for both PS3 and Vita.

Ok, I have a question, is Full Game Trial is dead for us, as we havent gotten any new since… you know. And meanwhile US PS+ for PS Vita get 6 free games we get only 4, hmmm.

supersmith2500 21 November, 2012 @ 15:11
22

Great Store update but still upset with no Retro City Ramapage. Shouldn’t be long now since the EU version is complete and is entering certification soon so hopefully shouldn’t be long. In speaking of which, people won’t have to complain about when is Tomba! 2 AND TWD Ep.5 coming. ^^

Ok, I have a question, is Full Game Trial is dead for us? As we havent gotten any new since… you know. And meanwhile US PS+ for PS Vita get 6 free games we get only 4, hmmm.

Nice update, happy to see PS Plus on Vita with such great deals.

I already know the answer, but I’ll try anyway: Jawad, have you any update to share about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? Are we going to have it at least before 2013? Why is it taking so long to land on EU PSN?

24.1

No comment…

SINE MORA is live for PS Vita and costs EUR 14.99
You might want to correct this price before complaints are poring in about refunds!

25.1

Pricing has been fixed on the store. The correct price is €9.99.

tomba 2 before the americans? i think jawad broke also when will both 1 & 2 be available for the vita to download?

will the gravity rush dlc have a sale due to the fact it’s on ps+ like the other usual games do?

Yay, we have the final walking dead episode.

Will we ever get the Marvel vs Capcom avatars?

What about planets under attack your article on the blog last week said it was out today??

28.1

Slight issue holding it back but we’re hoping to get it out either later today at the earliest, if not within the next few days. I can’t promise anything but I’m chasing it up.

only 2 good things about this update Tomba 2 and Virtue’s Last Reward.
the rest is just horrible overpriced DLC.

@jawad
is there any point in asking for certain content or are you guys still ignoring everybody.

29.1

Requesting content doesn’t mean it will, or won’t come… I think it helps to ask. Not spam, but just put it out there, you know?

If it helps, I heard Symphony of the Night might be ready quite soon. More info once I get it…

discount for Saints Row the third ultimate package – does this mean the individual bits of dlc are discounted as well? I already have the game

31

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was $49.99 in saudi playstation store (pre-order)
now $64.99 why?????
can you fix this please

So another Tomba! release that isn’t compatible with PSVita?
Any word on when this and the original game will be available with this feature?

33

Best update ever :D

Just one question for PS+ peoples is a Dynamic Theme of When Vikings attack but says it’s unavailable?! Can you check this pleas or did i miss something?
Thanx in advance :)

33.1

From what I understand this is available if you pre-ordered it – is that the case?

34

Best update ever :D

Just one question for PS+ peoples is a Dynamic Theme of When Vikings attack but says it’s unavailable?! Can you check this please or did i miss something?
Thanx in advance :)

Great update. :)

Does DOOM Classic Complete have the vastly improved ambient soundtrack and sound effects from the PlayStation (PS1) version?

Since our Vitas now inform unintelligent people how to access the menu when starting a PSOne game with 2.0 (showing them how to change discs), I excpet Resident Evil 2 to once again be tranferable to the Vita seeing how you took it down because someone didn’t know how to change discs, no?

Also, Castlevania Symphony of the Night is a great game, It should totally be on the store and not in QA for 6 months.
Here’s a little secret, the american eboot works, no QA, use that one!

cs go?

Hi Jawad, is there any news on whether any of the Timesplitters games are coming to the store under PS2 classics.

Also the add-ons section of the store needs to be fixed.
Recently I’ve noticed that none of the new content shows at the top of the list like with other parts of the store and is usually half way down under content that came out a few weeks back and is a bit of a mess trying to find stuff as it isn’t as organised as other parts of the store.

38.1

You can sort it using the filter.

There’s a new petition out for Timesplitters to get a HD treatment. I suggest you sign it. I have!

39

Thanks for the valkyria chronicles 2 price drop. Any chance of the same on the dlc for the first one?

39.1

If Sega decide. Maybe they will, after all, they did before! Who knows…

Can someone on the EU blog team explain how i take advantage of the cloud saving for PSVITA?

Fantastic update this week, happy to see PS+ on the Vita, a very strong package just before Christmas!! Any idea when we will get an update on whats coming for PS+ on the Vita in the coming months? Much like we get with the PS3 version. Cheers

Tomba 2, Devil may Cry demo AND Borderlands 2 DLC? Wow, you guys really went all out on this weekly update. Best update ever even. Little question though, does Tomba 2 work on the PS Vita?

Hi Jawad,

Sine Mora Vita version is at the moment at 14,99€ on the store instead of the 9,99€ you announce. Is this an error? PS3 version is correct (9,99€). Thanks for your help.

43.1

Jawad is on his way. I’m looking into this.

43.2

This has now been fixed. It might take a few minutes to show up on the live Store.

@Black_Gast: apparently not

45

Wow @awwe_se , why not complain about the way it says “PS Plus for Vita” and not “Playstation Plus for Vita” too?
Seriously though this is a great update, thanks guys. PS All Stars Battle Royale for €49.99 for PS3 and Vita? That is excellent value right there. ^_^

46

How come the call of duty season pass is £41.99 when I got told it would be £34.99 from GAME as they were selling vouchers for £35 to cover the cost of the season pass? There is no way I can get an extra £6 as I’m only using vouchers.

When will the suit and gun pack be out for Hitman Absolution? Dont want to buy them seperately!

Still not buying **** till you remove the SingStar malware and stop using my -ing PS3 as your personal spam board.

49

Hi Jawad
Why these game will not come to the PSN Saudi Lego Lord Of The Rings(ps3/ps vita)?

Sounds great.

Would be nice if Resisdenr evil 2 was vita compatible.
Original Xcom even.

Ask you again next week.

Thanks.

51

Sorry for the double post, had some errors :(

Why do i get the error c2-13688-6 when i try to play playstation all stars online with my vita?( digital versiom)

Cool update. Although searching for items on the store brings back the same entries twice.

Also i think it is time for Sony to drop the (playable) tag on demos now, long gone is the time where a demo would be a scripted AI controlled copy of a game, this isn’t 1998 anymore ;)

Plus it gets confusing, I went to download Gravity Rush today and it was listed twice on the store, one had (playable) next to the title, with no actual indication it was a demo and not the full game.

Hey jawad

small question

Im getting a vita for xmas hopefully. Will i be able to download all the vita games to my ps3 already so i can transfer em to vita once i get it?

Else i might loose offers cause i dont have the vita yet.

54.1

Yes. Your account is linked anyway so everything will be under a single download list.

Hi Jawad. I still cannot find dissidia 012 music dlc.
And any news on symphony of night.

55.1

It’s there but may not have been reorganised yet. You can find it under the Add-Ons section but I warn you, this is a long trek… I’ll see if I can get it put under the game page itself.

Where is Hitman Absolution ???

It’s Day 1 digital on US store…

:(

*NSYNC – I Want You Back for Singstar?! YES THANK YOU! :-D

Supe awesome psvita update! A total of 12 new games for psvita!

59

just the DMC demo for me then, please remove the singstar icon to another part of the xmb, i dont mind having it there just not right above my games folder, also it makes no sense to move the trophy collection icon to the network section, feels out of place there also its made looking at trophies a chore as since the update it seems to take ages to load the list of all the games, which sucks if your playing a game and you want a quick look at any trophy info, its oh so sluggish now, i just dont get why this was done :(

60

Is the Vita store interface going to get an update? The layout is fine but the sorting options from the new PS3 store would be nice.

It also needs a complete and comprehensive PS Plus section that lists ALL free games (not just the IGC, because Super Stardust Portable has been free on Plus for ages now and I’ve never seen that fact advertised anywhere, even here), and ALL discounts (Vita, PSP, PS1, Minis, etc).

not really anything for + again

Great update!

Getting myself DmC and Playstation Access (Which BTW is the best thing since sausage sandwiches).

Also funny yet awesome to see Gangnam for Just Dance 4. I had a weird dream last night Psy and two others were doing Gangnam and then I was breakdancing.

62.1

A dream about Psy, eh? Was he in the that towel of his haha!

63

Uncharted, Gravity Rush and Mutant Blobs – Yaaaay!

Chronovolt – Boooo! This is not equivocal in value to Wipeout, JSR and FFT. Why do we get the short end of the stick all of a sudden? :(

Great Update for Vita.
Getting for sure Borderlands 2 Mr. Torgue’S Campaign Of Carnage and meaby Chronovolt or Sine Mora.

Also I think there is a technical issue with the http://blog.eu.playstation.com/. I am using firefox and the home page is telling me that you are doing maintenance. The same status has been more than a week and continius. And I am using chrome and everything is fine.

Please look into it.

N7 Equipment Pack (£1.99/€2.49)
Reserves Pack (£2.39/€2.99)

i dont see the other stuff on the store?

66

The Walking Dead episode 5 is already up.

Everyone should stay away from jet set radio vita. It should be free on plus.

68

Hey Jawad where the hitman absolution dlc i thought it was coming today?

69

Will PS plus members be getting Jet Set Radio for the Vita for free like they have in America or is that only for US members?

69.1

US Only, sorry.

70

so the walking dead is done now?…they’ve released all episodes?

i wanted to wait for a retail version but it’s like £40…cheaper to buy the pass i think.

does the PSN version have a platinum?

71

Hi Jawad,

Any news on You Tube for the PS3?

71.1

Not yet.

72

Tomba 2 well played Store team I am one very happy gamer today.

tomba 2 says it plays in 60hz when i load the game up it plays in 50hz dont bother buying this game people

There was supposed to be a Premium XMB Theme for Battlefield 3 Premium members today – all the other store contents are visible to me but not this. Any ideas?

Downloading Mr Torgue now. HELL YES

Oh just checked the blog.
Thanks for valkeria chronicles II. I’m gonna pull the trigger.

Cheers.

Yay! JSR!!

I give up on Retro City Rampage.

When will you put Wipeout Fusion in the PS2 Classics?

Virtue’s Last Reward? :D, If I don’t find a phisical copy of the game, I’ll be buying it from the store! Made my day. :3

Good update, Sine Mora (which one to buy?), the Vita free games and DMC demo for me.

Okay, so it says here that the new Mass Effect 3 DLC is out everywhere, but right now all i see is the alternate appearance pack ?
Please respond !
Is it avalible in Poland at all ?
Is the store still updating, so i can’t see it ?

80.1

They may be in-game content.

81

I can’t find the Hitman dlc pack that includes all of the pre order stuff. US store has it but we can only buy every piece separately.

82

A great update this week. The Walking Dead episode 5 and Plus games Uncharted:Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush. I’ve added these to my download list ready for when I buy a Vita next year. Can’t wait.

Also can you remove Singstar please. I know that some people like it but can you give those who don’t want it the option to delete it please, it is really annoying. Thanks. :)

@Jawad

Where is Counter strike? Why you can’t give us information?

supersmith2500 21 November, 2012 @ 15:32
84

Great update and great peformance, downloading them Plus games onto my Vita now. ^^

85

Hi,
Firstly thankyou Sony and Telltale for the walking Dead series. It has been by far one of the best gaming experiences I’ve had on the PS3.
That said it did take me about 3 minutes longer to find on the store than it would have 2 months ago.
Please Sony. You said you listened to us when developing the new look so listen to us when we ask for a ‘new this week’ section. We are also asking for the removal of that ridiculous singstar app.
Every time I turn on my machine, there they are with the sunglasses and cheesy grins. Why did I pay 2 quid for a dynamic theme to look at these fools. Please just move it to somewhere discrete.

best update in times = all in 1
borderlands 2 dlc
Frobisher’s Mega Fun Pack
Zen Pinball 2 dlc
then uncharted + Gravity Rush on vita = :)

Sine Mora = i gone try but one question = if u buy ps3 version u get vita version free ?

87

brilliant update love PS+ thanks Sony.

88

hmmmm us ps plus members was promised big things for november? so far its a vita fest, guess what sony i dont own a vita and dont plan on buying one so why should my plus subscription pay for everyone elses vita games?? unless your hoping that by flodding the poorly designed store with vita stuff my brain mite make me buy one, lol nice try sony next thing your gonna be sneeking adware in your updates

Hey guys, great update this week – especially for the Vita.

Have to ask if the rest of us Europeans are going to get access to the PS Mobile store any time soon?
Feel like I’m missing out on one of the features.

FghtOffUrDemons 21 November, 2012 @ 15:35

Hi
Is the first Tomba game compatible with the Vita yet?

Basket21
u not need = buy u game on ps3 then go to dowload list en download on day u have vita = 9/10 also in u dowload list on vita

( if not u dowload out of ps3 download list on u ps3 then whith content manager from ps3 to u vita )

It might not be in the right place but what I would like to know is when will future Vita Plus Announcements take place? I ask because the PS3 one is dues in 2 weeks. Will ALL plus content be announced together?

Plus…. is Retro City Rampage aiming to be a Plus title along with the new Uncharted game next month wink wink ;) ;)

92.1

That should be the case, yes. Chris is going to detail all Plus content for you. I will just add them into the general post as reminder.

Why isnt there a ps+ section in the vita store? I have to manually look for/search the free games :(

An excellent update guys, really good news for the Vita as well, hope there is more plus treats on the way.

Also nice that a users comment was passed on a VC II for psp was given price reduction, HOWEVER Jawad or Fred, could you perhaps look in to getting it compatible for the Vita. I would really like to play the game.

Thanks.

+1 for wanting the original Xcom on the store. Would love to play that on my PSP.

Amazing update guys!
Got Golden Abyss (even If I’ve already own the japanese version), Chronovolt, Sine Mora, Mutant Blobs Attack, Walking Dead EP. 5 DmC Demo & SEGA All Stars Racing demo, and Civil War table.

Now my credit card is completely empty, thank you -_-

So, any idea on when Invizimals trilogy releases on psn?

ZoRo_The_Samurai 21 November, 2012 @ 15:41

Hi Jawad,
Awesome update! i’m getting TWD Episode 5 and Borderlands 2 DLC.. I was ready to get hitman but yeah the good doesn’t complete xD..
any news about it?
Thank you!

Any word on the BLOPS:Declassified code prizes from the weekend debate?

99.1

Sorry for the delay, I’m still chasing the codes!! They’ll be with you soon, promise.

100

A great selection of games this week, and I have no money!
The ps+ vita games should keep me happy, I need a bigger memory card and requires money and I have no money aaaaaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhh

Hi,
Chronovolt is not showed in the IGC. If you would download it, you must search throught other PS Vita games. Neither the Search option works.

Tales of monkey Island is unavailable throught Search option. You must search for the key words “full series” to find a valuable result. What sort of index system does the nuw store use? Please fix it.

We would love more deals for old DLCs. There a<re lots of old games with DLCs at full price. Some deals and maybe hal price disccounts would be very welcomed.

Another related matter. Why don't you offer deals related to the DLCs of games in the Intant Games Collection? For example, you have added Crysis 2 as freebe. A good marketing move would have been to sell the DLCs for this game at a discounted price. In this way wou would have pleased the owner of a retail copy too.
Needless to say that more people would preferr to buy DLCs at a discounted price than at full price.

Thanks

Hey Fred or Jawad, on the store I can’t seem to find the Uncharted 2 avatars, are they gone?

102.1

Are they not under Uncharted 2 game page? Searching will not bring these up, I know.

THC_steve_0

but 2-3 littel problems
pice vita + mem

104

I preordered a retail copy of Playstation All-Stars for PS3 and got the Vita version etc, working GREAT! Loving the game so far! But:

How do I get my preorder costumes? I didn’t get a code and it’s not on the second disc that appears in XMB.

Please answer, I was really looking forward to the alternate costumes.

105

Seriously impressed with the Vita PS+ love.

One happy punter here much love n stuff lol

ryannumber3gamer 21 November, 2012 @ 15:53
106

@Fred Will we get the codes later today or tomorrow? Just wondering, Also thanks for putting Gravity Rush and Uncharted as the PS Plus Vita games :)

106.1

I just chased them again. I’d love to say it’ll be today, but it may well be tomorrow at this stage. Sorry :(

I paid £11.99 for Sine Mora at 1pm, I now feel somewhat cheated.

107.1

Add me on PSN (ID: Chuck_FD), send me a message, and I’ll try and find a solution for you.

Uncharted & Gravity Rush for Vita… bah, I own them already. Still, I suppose it would be nice to have them on my memory card… if my 32GB card wasn’t full already. Darn it! Still, nice for those who own a Vita who haven’t bought those games (although if you haven’t bought them, why do you even own a Vita?)

DmC demo is great news… I LOVE early demos!

SingStar is a game I love but the SingStar team MUST get better songs out… the choices are astonishingly poor. I don’t know anyone who would want any of those songs. Perhaps, at a push, Feargal Sharkey…

As for the SingStar icon… JESUS PEOPLE, STOP WHINING. You’ve been given a free – and brilliant – game… get some good songs for it, get some friends together, and have a laugh. Particularly brilliant with PSEye and the wireless microphones.

SingStar is a GREAT game for parties… the best party game ever… but you need friends to get the most out of it.

I suspect most of the people who are complaining either don’t have friends or don’t like m...

I suspect most of the people who are complaining either don’t have friends or don’t like music.

Although I agree there should be the option to hide or move it, at least, for those who are adamant they will never play it.

109

Hey Sony, when you add Resident Evil 2 for PS Vita?

lol

u tel dev team
on ps3 = we have 9 to z but also 4 sings we not use ath all !!!

on vita new ps+ section = rong language ute na pa ps vita = i tink spain ore italia ;)

HI just want to let you know Jet set radio will only work if you turn off your ps vita completely and then launch game. if you dont follow this procedure then it keeps going to in game menu.I have sent question to sega but thought you should know as well.

You’ve listed t@g dlc as free. The store is charging 40p a pop

112.1

Apologies, this was pushed incorrectly for free and will be changed.

Hi to whom may answer.

Why are we no longer getting singstar posts (to everyone else not all of us hate the game). I have a REAL problem with how poor the information for each update is, Songs are now coming onto the store? Is this the norm now? I know some have been for a while but most where still through the singstar store. The communication has been bad for a while (Facebook no and the blog not been updated since October) And its a bit of a pain, the forums are dead. Can you either post the info on one, or all?

Also MS are preparing a karaoke app with 8 yes 8 times as many songs, and they will be streamed. This imo shows singstar up now, you dipped your fingers in to many pies (rip guitar and dance add ons) and now what WAS the best karaoke game this gen is dying, poor poor updates, no communication, lots of exploits (the stupid woman who does awful videos having 20 videos in the hall of fame?)

The fact you have had to make it free to play and forced it on alot of people (which...

I doubt I will get a written reponse other then maybe a three word sentence but a answer addressing all my concerns would be nice :)

Hi

Any chance of a sale on Sega games in the near future?

One of the best release days ever for a EU PlayStation gamer

116

Just the LBP Gravity rush costumes for me this week. Looks like some nice value for Plus Vita owners though, free golden abyss, gravity rush and tales from space :o Although everyone should own those games already :p

Hey Jawad,

Although it is a great update, specially for Vita (and Plus owners), can I ask when Planets Under Attack is going to be released? (as it was announced for this week)

Any answer will be appreciated. Thanks!

117.1

Hopefully still this week. There’s just a small issue that held it back, but otherwise it should be out very soon.

also frbisher supperfun pack 2 x but no mega fun pack solo = ???

Here we go again. I just downloaded both Sine Mora and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale for Vita , and both games are trials instead of the full versions of the game. Sine Mora even has the ‘Unlock Full Version’ option in the menu, and when i press it it says “This content may not be for sale or is no longer for sale. (NP-2247-5)”.

The last time i had issues like this was with LBP Vita, and i guess i should blame myself for thinking it’d be possible to buy a game, digitally, as soon as it’s released.

Hope to get this fixed ASAP.

A good update but spoil by lack of ps2 classics good update is tombi2 and the plus stuff.

The rest is pants :P

121

Could I get an answer?

How do I get my preorder costumes if I preordered the retail copy?

I didn’t get a code (except the one for the network pass)!

121.1

You would have to take it up with your retailer. They should send out codes, or provide a code on purchase.

Very sad there is no Cross Buy for Sine Mora.

No Cross Buy = No Buy.

1) How come TAG is 3G only? Seems odd that you have to be online all the time in order for an app to function on the Vita.

2) Will it be possible to preorder Ratchet or buy it from the store when it’s out next week?

sadly i was really hyped for Virtue’s Last Reward, but after learning that the pal versions doesn’t have the excellent English voice dub that’s in the American version im going to have to import this xD

sadly theirs only the Japanese voice work with subtitles T_T
whereas the na version has both.

oh well no use crying over spilled milk i guess >_>

124.1

Normally I’d hear “I want Japanese voices!”….that’s the camp I sit in, anyway.

when will the annoying SingStar icon on XMB be removed?

dlbbRogueTrader 21 November, 2012 @ 16:06
126

COUNTER-STRIKE GLOBAL OFFENSIVE!!????

Something, anything… What poor communication with the community.

127

Recently I posted that the Dutch PS3 store is regularly infected by non-Dutch texts.

Now the Vita Store has the same issue: The new PS Plus tab is called “Ute na pa PS Vita”, which is certainly not Dutch. Inside that tad, everything is indeed dutch…

128

whats do get for my ps plus money then sony?

129

Oh by the way, I can’t seem to redeem my Vita version of AllStars at this time, I always get an error when I select the “Disc Benefit” icon.. Do I have to connect the Vita for it to work or something?

jep same to us in belgium chrisboers

131

Oh, and Chronovolt is not listed under the PS Plus tab. It is in the list of vita games though…

Stonesthrow = playstation update to latest version ????
kijk manueel

133

I confirm. I’ve bought Sine Mora for Vita but I get only the trial :(
Any help?

133.1

I’m looking into this. Update soon…

133.2

Good news: this is now fixed. Bad news: I’m afraid you’ll need to contact Customer Services to resolve your particular case. Details here: http://bit.ly/QUfbUY. Many apologies for the inconvenience.

134

Same question: When will the annoying SingStar icon on XMB be removed?

Hey Jawad, Will we get Hitman Absolution as digital download?

136

Jawad,

Are we going to get Elminage like the US did?

YES you can download vita games to PS3 to transfer later. As for full game trials F1 All Stars has been added to the list. For add-ons just SORT By Newest.

Dark_Overlord
even if sony = slow + do tings not always like we need
u are nothing bether like a ordinaire thief + i not suport hackking ore moded consoles .

Bought Sine More today for 15eu only to see it here now for 10eu´s also im stuck on trial mode whats with that? Some help would be awsome. Great PS+ lineup for this week!

One_Shot_KiIIer 21 November, 2012 @ 16:18
140

@ Jawad or Fred can you not put the Playstation All Stars on as the pre-order for the PS Vita so It can download automaticly? Thanks.

Jawad can you ask the store team to make sims 2 (psp) compatible with vita
and the bullfrog ps1 games like theme hospital/populous and theme park available for vita pleaseeeeeeeee :D

ryannumber3gamer 21 November, 2012 @ 16:21

Also any news on a Sly 4 demo?

142.1

If anything happens on this you will definitely hear about it on the blog separately.

its official… i need a bigger memory card for my vita! 64GB please, heck, keep up with such good uodates and sony gonna have to make them in 128GB haha

145

A lot of great stuff on here, nice work all! Will we be getting regular Vita content each month?

146

hi, Is sine mora a cross buy game? if I get it on PS3 will i also got it for vita? thanks!

146.1

Sadly not.

147

Jawad can you please ask PS Vita Store developers to fix one tiny issue – when you buy something, you don’t the red ‘bought’ sign next to the game screenshot when you’re in the listing mode (eg. PS Vita games > A-L), you will see that it’s been bought when you enter game details, which is not very user friendly – it should work just as on the PS3 Store – when something is paid for you see the icon next to the screentshot on the games list.

Always waiting for Wednesday for the new updates, and always find something missing like
Darksiders 2, or hitman , anyway thanx but no thanx

Hi! One question: are there any plans on returning remote play support to the playstation store? I use(d to use) this quite often to check new content or start downloads from my phone. I’m sure it’s easy to implement again, just changing a variable from 0 to 1 or something like that. It would make me a little bit happier.

150

I DONT HAVE A VITA SO WHATS DO I GET FOR MY PS PLUS MONEY FRED? WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR THOESE WHO DO [CENSORED] IM WITH THC_steve_0 ON THIS ONE SOME ONE GOING TO ANSWER

Hi, is the update complete on the store because Valkyria Chronicles 2 is still £27.99 not £9.99. Is that right??

152

Fantastic update today, finally get to finish Walking Dead and same week as everyone else which is awesome news.

Fantasitc week for us Vita users as well :)

@jawad, Thanks anyway

154

another reason to believe in the vita

Thanks ps plus

I’ve bought Sine Mora for Vita but it seems I pay for trial. Come on, Sony, not again.
also patch 1.04 for LBP is broken…

zen dlc not on vita ?

help I’ve just bought sine mora, the trial downloaded but it wont download the full game unlock even though it shows up in transaction history

Wasn’t there supposed to be a discount on JSR for plus members?

159

Will PLaystation All star battle royale available on Greece today?
Thanks!

Still no sign of RDR for Saudi Arabian PS+ subscribers, any updates? The store team are taking their sweet time getting it published.

Hitman is on store BTW People, Special and Normal addition, Just search it

163

@Jawad: I can’t seem to be able to acess the PSASBR page for PS3, it says “Content not available right now”. Are you guys struggling to get it live, or has my account somehow been bugged…? I can access the Vita version page.

JAWAD

The Premium Battlefield 3 XMB Theme scheduled for today is definately missing from the store. Any info on this mate?

I bought Resident evil 2. Does not work on PS Vita.
I bought Syphon Filter Logan’s Shadow. Does not work on PS Vita.
I got Assassins Creed bloodlines with pspgo. Does not work on PSVita.
When will these games finally work?

166

I’m hoping that in the future you guys will make these “Heads up” articles into like a HTML5 interactive magazine where you can click at each title to see more information and a trailer, or at least try to change the layout so that you are able to navigate more quickly.

Surprised nobody mentions or complains that the Instant game collection for EU PS plus has not been updated in months and nothing new has been added. why are we given such 3rd class treatment?

168

I’m hoping that in the future you guys will make these “Heads up” articles into like a HTML5 interactive magazine where you can click at each title to see more information and a trailer and basically what’s new on the store for games, Ps plus and even the Video store, or at least try to change the current layout so that you are able to navigate more quickly.

I think there is a technical issue with the http://blog.eu.playstation.com/. I am using firefox and the home page is telling me that you are doing maintenance. The same status has been more than a week and continius. And I am using chrome and everything is fine.
Please look into it.

170

Only one tiny little thing Jawad, the Planets Under Attack avatars don’t show for me? I checked around 2pm when the store first updated and this hour too.

Hey team!

The Vita store (on the vita) is already a mess.
The plus section in the Dutch store is in the wrong language.
Also only 3 of the 4 free games are in there. Chronovolt is somewhere else. Please get a bit more professional for gods sake.

Hey,
Just want to say, great update today! More stuff than I was expecting!
I did want more/better plus games though. Whatever vita owner doesnt own those 2 games already… I dont know.

Just have some questions…

I noticed Virtue’s Last Reward is on the store, I was under the impression its out in UK on friday, is it different this time?
Also I noticed it said in game was english, I was also under the impression the game would only be japanese audio and english text. Any idea if the UK retail copy will english too?

172.1

The date I have is for today, however it may indeed be Friday.

From what I know it should only be Japanese audio plus English text. Hope that helps.

173

@137

So I’m a thief for taking a game I legally own that isn’t available on the store and allowing my PSP to play it?

Wow I must have the law wrong, thanks for correcting me :rolls eyes:

Lol at my comment being removed

To Jawad or Fred, I asked this last week, but didn’t get a reply, so here it goes again, because it’s a tad concernig to me:
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, get to download the fixed versions for free, or do we have to purchase them?

174.1

I can’t really say much about it until it actually does get fixed, but it’s likely you’d just have to re-download the game. Of course, if you already purchased it then you wouldn’t need to rebuy it. Once I get more solid info I’ll let you know.
