‘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.


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.


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?????

@ 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!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm    

    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!

Mougurijin 21 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   4

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, …

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?

chrisboers 21 November, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   5

Just Dance 4

Gangnam Style




(Great update, by the way…)


When are You removing the singstar icon?

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm    

    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.

INS1GHTFUL 21 November, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   7

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 🙂

E_Darkness 21 November, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   9

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?

fazleycatta 21 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   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.

runicdagaz 21 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   12

DmC demo, that alone makes it a good week. 🙂

Question: Will the Disgaea avatars ever arrive in Belgium?


    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:04 pm    

    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 @ 3:10 pm   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. 🙂

zaqair123456 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   14

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

Lethalx08 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   15

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

martinfletcher89 21 November, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   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 @ 3:11 pm   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

napalmjam360 21 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   20

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

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:08 pm    

    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 @ 3:11 pm   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?

Jesse-Blue 21 November, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   25

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!


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?

KushMonkey 21 November, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   27

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??

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:11 pm    

    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.

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

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:13 pm    

    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

Dr-abdulelah 21 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   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?

Nordlyset87 21 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   33

Best update ever 😀

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 🙂

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:28 pm    

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

Nordlyset87 21 November, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   34

MartinB105 21 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   35

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?

Elite_1989 21 November, 2012 @ 3:15 pm   38

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.

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:29 pm    

    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!

pinkplaybunny 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   39

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

Silent_Gig 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   40

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

Mellors86x 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   41

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

Black_Gast 21 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   42

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.


@Black_Gast: apparently not

andrewsqual 21 November, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   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. ^_^

JordanBlack68 21 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   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!

AsmodeanBT 21 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   48

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

AL3MERH_2011 21 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   49

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

spagetti69 21 November, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   50

Sounds great.

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

Ask you again next week.


Nordlyset87 21 November, 2012 @ 3:21 pm   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.

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:33 pm    

    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.

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:34 pm    

    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! 😀


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

Flipside666 21 November, 2012 @ 3:22 pm   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 🙁

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).

Roscoe182 21 November, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   61

not really anything for + again

Falcon1991 21 November, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   62

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.

PsychoDantis 21 November, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   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 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.

Mass Effect 3

Alternate Appearance Pack 1 (£1.59/€1.99)
Arsenal Pack (£2.39/€2.99)
N7 Equipment Pack (£1.99/€2.49)
Reserves Pack (£2.39/€2.99)

i dont see the other stuff on the store?

Huono_peleis 21 November, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   66

The Walking Dead episode 5 is already up.


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

FrostScythe1 21 November, 2012 @ 3:26 pm   68

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

Battlestar23 21 November, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   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?

xxSamuraiGirlxx 21 November, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   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?

Flatbattery 21 November, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   71

Hi Jawad,

Any news on You Tube for the PS3?

Uchiha0Chris 21 November, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   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

Bovrillor 21 November, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   74

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

spagetti69 21 November, 2012 @ 3:30 pm   75

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



Yay! JSR!!

I give up on Retro City Rampage.

When will you put Wipeout Fusion in the PS2 Classics?

OrderSora 21 November, 2012 @ 3:30 pm   78

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.

kucharzPro 21 November, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   80

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 ?

teh__pwnerer 21 November, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   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.

MissDreamer 21 November, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   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. 🙂


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

supersmith2500 21 November, 2012 @ 3:32 pm   84

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

vertigo9219 21 November, 2012 @ 3:32 pm   85

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 ?

SKIBADEE187 21 November, 2012 @ 3:34 pm   87

brilliant update love PS+ thanks Sony.

THC_steve_0 21 November, 2012 @ 3:34 pm   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 @ 3:35 pm   90

Is the first Tomba game compatible with the Vita yet?


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 😉 😉

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 4:41 pm    

    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 🙁

Avengerrr 21 November, 2012 @ 3:39 pm   94

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.


Bovrillor 21 November, 2012 @ 3:39 pm   95

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

Guillemots 21 November, 2012 @ 3:40 pm   96

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 @ 3:41 pm   98

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!

Dante_Zero 21 November, 2012 @ 3:41 pm   99

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

    Fred Dutton 21 November, 2012 @ 3:45 pm    

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

bregalad920 21 November, 2012 @ 3:42 pm   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


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.


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

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:07 pm    

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

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 3:44 pm   103

but 2-3 littel problems
pice vita + mem

Nicko_McBrain 21 November, 2012 @ 3:45 pm   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.

ligtningrod1 21 November, 2012 @ 3:51 pm   105

Seriously impressed with the Vita PS+ love.

One happy punter here much love n stuff lol

ryannumber3gamer 21 November, 2012 @ 3:53 pm   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 🙂

    Fred Dutton 21 November, 2012 @ 3:57 pm    

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

Suzzopher 21 November, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   107

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

    Fred Dutton 21 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm    

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

Bumblebee 21 November, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   108

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 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.

Sh1nj1-sempai 21 November, 2012 @ 3:55 pm   109

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

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 3:57 pm   110

Gods-and-cats 21 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   111

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

Mr_Writer 21 November, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   113

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 dont have a problem with the mards do) says to me you are flogging a dead horse.

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 🙂

eddibhoy 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   114


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

GrimLink 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   115

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

Stonesthrow 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   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 😮 Although everyone should own those games already :p

patacama 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   117

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!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:17 pm    

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

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   118

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

Flygplonk 21 November, 2012 @ 4:02 pm   119

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.

Skookie30 21 November, 2012 @ 4:03 pm   120

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

The rest is pants 😛

Nicko_McBrain 21 November, 2012 @ 4:03 pm   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)!

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:18 pm    

    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?

light1988 21 November, 2012 @ 4:06 pm   124

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 >_>

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:19 pm    

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

Pica_Man 21 November, 2012 @ 4:06 pm   125

when will the annoying SingStar icon on XMB be removed?

dlbbRogueTrader 21 November, 2012 @ 4:06 pm   126


Something, anything… What poor communication with the community.

chrisboers 21 November, 2012 @ 4:08 pm   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…

DAVEHUDSON 21 November, 2012 @ 4:09 pm   128

whats do get for my ps plus money then sony?

Stonesthrow 21 November, 2012 @ 4:10 pm   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?

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 4:10 pm   130

jep same to us in belgium chrisboers

chrisboers 21 November, 2012 @ 4:11 pm   131

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

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 4:11 pm   132

Stonesthrow = playstation update to latest version ????

Guillemots 21 November, 2012 @ 4:12 pm   133

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

tom-359-ds 21 November, 2012 @ 4:12 pm   134

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

maniac00 21 November, 2012 @ 4:14 pm   135

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

GenocideHeart 21 November, 2012 @ 4:14 pm   136


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.

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 4:15 pm   138

One_Shot_KiIIer 21 November, 2012 @ 4:18 pm   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 😀

ryannumber3gamer 21 November, 2012 @ 4:21 pm   142

Also any news on a Sly 4 demo?

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:09 pm    

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

reel_big_kris 21 November, 2012 @ 4:23 pm   146

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

ruinereraser 21 November, 2012 @ 4:24 pm   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

KungSkabb 21 November, 2012 @ 4:26 pm   149

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.

DAVEHUDSON 21 November, 2012 @ 4:29 pm   150


jay_d_89 21 November, 2012 @ 4:30 pm   151

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

FatMachismo 21 November, 2012 @ 4:31 pm   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

don_vennuchi 21 November, 2012 @ 4:32 pm   154

georgel07 21 November, 2012 @ 4:34 pm   155

I’ve bought Sine Mora for Vita but it seems I pay for trial. Come on, Sony, not again.

monoliet 21 November, 2012 @ 4:35 pm   156

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

TerrorOfDeath86 21 November, 2012 @ 4:39 pm   161

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

Nightmare966 21 November, 2012 @ 4:41 pm   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.

Bovrillor 21 November, 2012 @ 4:41 pm   164


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?

crusher915 21 November, 2012 @ 4:44 pm   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.

edjayjay 21 November, 2012 @ 4:44 pm   167

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?

crusher915 21 November, 2012 @ 4:47 pm   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.

Neochaos 21 November, 2012 @ 4:50 pm   169

I think there is a technical issue with the 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.

Falcon1991 21 November, 2012 @ 4:51 pm   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.


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?

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:04 pm    

    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.

Dark_Overlord 21 November, 2012 @ 4:52 pm   173


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

AzazHell 21 November, 2012 @ 4:53 pm   174

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?

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:06 pm    

    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.

patman180275 21 November, 2012 @ 4:54 pm   175

i thought planets under attack was going up today,can anyone tell me when it’s gonna get here?

I see others have also asked when Tomba will be available for the Vita. Just wanted to let you know I’m also curious about that. 🙂

WitheredBlossom 21 November, 2012 @ 5:02 pm   177

Hi Jawad,
are there any news about the fourth Eternia 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.


Awesome: PS+ for Vita, 2 pinball DLC’s, Borderlands 2 DLC, Walking Dead 5, Frobisher, Lego LOTR, etc.


HI sine mora issue is not fixed i still cant download full game


I just bought a table for the Vita Civil War for Zen Pinball 2, and had a mighty surprise, the store is charging me again the table for the PS3.

ukcrazyguy 21 November, 2012 @ 5:13 pm   181

Any update on resident evil 2 for vita? I paid for it and expect to be able to play it or at least get a refund. Surely someone on the blog must know something, iv been asking for months



I’m a bit confused, I thought that with cross-buy you could buy either the vita or ps3 version of a game and get the other, however the vita version of all stars is cheaper than the ps3 one so I assume you only get both versions if you buy the ps3 version. Is this true?

I feel like you should make this more clear

    Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:23 pm    

    You are correct, you only get the Vita version when you buy the PS3 version.

    “What’s more, purchase on PS3 and you’ll get the PS Vita version included”

    Specifically calls out PS3 as the lead.

lowrider007 21 November, 2012 @ 5:18 pm   183


Any change of a price drop on Plants vs Zombie?, it’s still £8.99 which is a lot compared to other platforms.

zxRATTLExz 21 November, 2012 @ 5:19 pm   184

Wow. I have to say i’m surprised and pleased that WD ep 5 is actually out on PSN EU at the same time as the rest of the world. Thank you for that. I’ve been expecting disappointment all day so i’m happy.

One thing though Jawad, who decides what gets the PS Plus discounts because i really can’t see the logic in offering PS Plus members a 15% discount on Saints Row 2 Ultimate edition when we received the game for free just 2 or 3 months ago. I understand that it has the dlc included but wouldn’t it make more sense to offer the dlc at a discount ? Mind you, we already had a discount on that when we got the game for free so even that would be pointless. Have to say, the plus discounts are pants these days.



Damn, I wish I waited for PSN release now, I have to wait a day or 2 for it to arrive, ha ha, cant wait.

Just asking as on the store, it does actually say:
“In-game speech: English; On-Screen text: English.”
So… thats gonna decieve people who were expecting it to be in english fully.

Hopefully the retail copy may have english too, but as long as I can understand the story, I guess thats fine

hounddog56 21 November, 2012 @ 5:20 pm   187

no cs go again lol.come on,get some 1 on here who can say something about it.


Great update for the VITA.

Sine Mora

I paid for a free/trail version? Now when the full/right version is up, I can’t download it (if I’m not purchases it again). Please, I need help.

DeividHasselhoff 21 November, 2012 @ 5:23 pm   189

So if i’m right you only added new + stuff for Vita? This sure does seem like you are ripping off people without Vitas.
I have zero interest in handheld gaming and got over 1 year of plus left at the moment, if you are starting to cater to Vita owners on PS3 owners expense i can’t help myself thinking i’ve been ripped off. US Store added new PS3 +-stuff too, why isn’t it the same in here?


Can we have an update on the sine mora issue please what am i supposed to do

    Fred Dutton 21 November, 2012 @ 5:28 pm    

    The issue has now been fixed but I’m afraid you’ll need to contact Customer Services to resolve your particular case. They’ll quickly help you access the full game. Details here: Many apologies for the inconvenience.

Raydempto 21 November, 2012 @ 5:25 pm   191

Jawad! Fred! I purchased Playstation All Stars Battle Royale from the PS Store–But it won’t let me play it! It says its the trial version, but I definitely purchased it…besides there IS NO PS All Star’s “Trial” in the store currently so I have no idea what is going on. The game reports as the full version…but it will not let me start the game, I tried using the Online Pass that came with the download but to no avail!

I am at my wit’s end! Please help me!


i can only recite a friend of mine: this is the holy grail of game store updates!

bestheelever 21 November, 2012 @ 5:26 pm   193

A brilliant update for us Vita owners. I’m glad I didn’t buy Gravity Rush or Unit 13 after all 🙂

sk8r1066 21 November, 2012 @ 5:27 pm   194

@185 I think you will find that the ps+ IGC for ps3 was already updated this month, we got Crysis 2, R&C all 4 one and cubix

patman180275 21 November, 2012 @ 5:29 pm   195

imtheshitman 21 November, 2012 @ 5:31 pm   196

Hey Jawad, I dont know if this the right place to request games on the store or if you can request them for us but if you can could you try and get a few of these games on the store i would love to play them again.
some of the games i would like to play are bugs bunny: lost in time, onimusha 1,2,3 and 4, crash bash, breath of fire 4, dino crisis 1 and 2, chromo trigger, chromo cross and ehrgeiz. Now i look spoilt asking for loads of games, well i know you probably wont be able to get any or all of these games but if you could try and get some of them, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

rockmanjoey 21 November, 2012 @ 5:31 pm   197

Any idea when Retro City Rampage is going to be released? The last time I heard it was in certification

Jawad Ashraf 21 November, 2012 @ 5:32 pm   198

Hi guys,

Those who had issues with Sine Mora, please contact Customer Services ( will be able to sort this out for you. Apologies for the inconvenience.


BloodMountain88 21 November, 2012 @ 5:33 pm   199

The Mass Effect 3 content appears if you choose ‘Downloadable Content’ from the game’s main menu. However the item descriptions for the Arsenal Pack, N7 Equipment Pack, and Reserves Pack are really vague, and don’t indicate what they include and whether they are for the single player or multiplayer. Could we get some clarity on what these packs are for and what they each include please?

Also, the Groundside Resistance weapon pack for ME3 that was released a few weeks ago is missing on the store, and I can’t find it buy searching for it either.

DeividHasselhoff 21 November, 2012 @ 5:34 pm   200

@190 Fair enough, this is still the first month in like half years with only one batch of +-stuff arriving.
It does seem to me like the Vita stuff is being taken away from PS3 stuff.
Worst +-games this month for the whole year so far as well.

Raydempto 21 November, 2012 @ 5:35 pm   201

Jawad! Fred! Second Attempt!

moriarty1975 21 November, 2012 @ 5:37 pm   203

Contact customer services on the helpline number that charges you for calling it. You pay to fix a mistake SCEE made.

Vita store is a mess right now… …i managed to grab the free full version (what?!?) of Playstation All-Stars BR… …but it says it’s trial version and won’t even let me play it. At the moment, there isn’t trial version of PS All-Stars BR, should there be one?

Raydempto 21 November, 2012 @ 5:41 pm   207


I actually purchased the game and this happened to me dude. I am EXTREMELY angry right now, 35 bucks down the toilet. All I got was an online pass and a 1.6 gb TRIAL that pretends its the full game.


taurus82 21 November, 2012 @ 5:42 pm   208

I’ll give Dmc Devil May Cry a go, it’ll probably have no v-sync or AA.
I’ll definitely get Marvel Pinball: Civil War (PS3).
I’ll buy The Walking Dead when it’s released on BD.


there is some rather obnoxious audio lag in Tomba 2 when played on the ps3. Is this due to some system settings or what?

EssexLad 21 November, 2012 @ 5:46 pm   210

When will we be able to preview dynamic themes like we could on the old store? I dont fancy paying £1.50 for a theme without knowing what it looks like properly.


the price of Valkyria Chronicles 2 is still 34.99€
Is it a mistake in the store or in the post?
Thank you

LOL @ no RCR.
And mark my words when it s gonna be release it will be the same version than PSN US and you will have to update it.
About PSN US vs PSN EU, how come the US have 2 more free games than us ?
Sony europe is too weak to stike thz same deals ?
Jet Set Radio free @ day 1 would have been a nice start for psn vita…


Xayden666 21 November, 2012 @ 6:00 pm   217

The Resident Evil 6 Ada avatar is still missing !
Please add her D:


If it’s the right dlc for you’re disc in uk psn store, you can simply set up you’re own uk account and buy it from there, all you need is to buy uk psn cards to redeem in the store, if you buy a psn card on you even get free delivery, and cheaper as taxes is removed 🙂

Hi Jawad

can you please explain the crazy price of the black ops 2 season pass its supposed to be £34.99, another system has it on their for 4000 points/£35 why are we being charged an extra £7 you need to fix this mistake or our competitors are getting a fair deal and were getting scammed, you need to talk to treyarch/activision and sort this out and ask why another company is getting the pass for £35 while were paying £42, i bought the season pass from game and they gave me a £35 psn card so they think its that price also can you please sort this out or you are gunna lose sales to your competition.

is any of this gunna be sorted?

i dont’t want to contact sony cs. just refund, enough it’s enough 🙁


Good,Hope you get it solved. but to be honest, customers on warpath get the worst customers service normally…
Sure there is not a unlock key/full version you forgot to dl/install?, even tried to redownload it?, I’m sure you have done/checked.. But just asking 🙂

KusariSoul 21 November, 2012 @ 6:31 pm   236


Why is BLACK OPS 2 Season Pass Overpriced at £41.99 .. when it should be around £34.99 ?


Why is it that The Americans Have it for $49.99 which is about £32.00 ?

Explain Here >

Yeah I did all that, it still gives me the same errors. I have already contacted customer service (politely) but I don’t think anything’s stopping me from blowing off a little steam here in this comments blogroll, hopefully not too many others have experienced this problem :/

I hope someone can reply, at present, I cant put ps3 igc games in my download list using vita, can you do something about it as I don’t use my ps3 often because I am constantly on the move, but I access vita frequently . So I hope something can be done in this regard so that people like me who don’t use their ps3 often don’t miss on a major part of plus offerings.
Any reply will be appreciated.

jozhster 21 November, 2012 @ 6:47 pm   246


you can’t report them to watchdog because they priced something at a higher price then it should be while i agree i am annoyed somewhat it should be £35 tbh maybe £32 via conversion rates from the US but we got MW3 at £35 (whether you agree or not Elite was technically a season pass) so we should get this at £35 just like another company got it at that price, i have no idea why its £42 but its probley a mistake that needs fixing soon.

Chaosprower 21 November, 2012 @ 6:51 pm   247

I had some problems with my PS3 a while ago, can I purchase the 49.99€ Cross-Buy version of Battle Royale through the Vita’s Store? SCE seems to suppose everyone who has a Vita has access to a PS3…

Is Tomba 2 playable on Vita? Does it have Spanish text and voices? The original did, but I think this isn’t the European version…

Jestersoil 21 November, 2012 @ 6:52 pm   248

@ Jawad

hello there, nice work and a nice update there too 🙂
i have a question: is there any chance that Tony Hawk HD will make it to plus for free or with a GOOD discount?

i am a huge fan of the first 2 tony hawk games and i’d really want to spent some time with it again with all the trophies and stuff that are now available! i just can’t afford 15 euros for it…

thanks for reading 🙂

R17L29XI 21 November, 2012 @ 6:53 pm   249

Fantastic. I also bought Sine Mora only to be greeted by a trial version and attempts to charge me again to download the game I just bought! I don’t dare re-purchase the game in case Sony don’t get my money back to me.

So now I’m £8 short with nothing to show for it. Sony’s offices and phone lines are closed so it looks like I’ll have to wait for them to email me back, and when everyone else is having the same problem, god knows how long that’s going to take.

Sort it out. Every damn week there’s something wrong.

Raydempto 21 November, 2012 @ 6:55 pm   250

@249 AMEN. The same exact thing happened to me, but with PS All Stars. I’m out 35 euros. Freakin brilliant.


@242 No need to wait, just hold power button for about. 30 seconds. Failing that there is another option to reset as well, just google it.

Chaosprower 21 November, 2012 @ 7:01 pm   252

@R17L29XI Something similiar happened with the launch of Little Big Planet PS Vita, everyone who bought it on the first day couldn’t install it, and had to wait for a (PSN wallet) refund and buy it again. I hope this won’t become a trend for all big PS Vita releases.

Onna76_NL 21 November, 2012 @ 7:07 pm   253

Nice and all to give trophies for Frobisher Says, but apart from showing in the ps vita trophy list on the ps vita the earned trophies are nowhere to be found. Not in the psn trophy list on the vita or on the ps3 nor on the gamers card. Lol…

TheSoldier09 21 November, 2012 @ 7:08 pm   254

Hi Jawad! Big fan of this Heads up posts!

By any luck we’ll see Syphon Filter 2 and Syphon Filter Omega Strain? Especially if it was possible on PS Vita!

Also please please anything on Ratchet Deadlocked/Gladiator HD it was my favorite game in the franchise!!

Thank you very much for the updates and comments!

lagunareturns 21 November, 2012 @ 7:08 pm   255

Wow amazing job Jawad, a great week really, you out id yourself. (Note: That was major sarcasm).

Well lets see you report incorrect prices, make the game Jet Set Radio that is free for psn plus for US not free for euro especially when you are giving less and worse titles for free for psn plus and tons of users complaining that they have made a purchase of two titles so far that do not start, says it is a trial and you say to call customer service which costs money….

Worst of all you insult end user who was asking for CS:GO and Retro City Rampage… I am only waiting for Retro City Rampage, I am not touching PSN because it is rubbish to me, I played RCR on PC, it is a highly polished game and it was made by a single dev…

lagunareturns 21 November, 2012 @ 7:08 pm   256

Also please tell the higher ups that Euro PSN is failing, and it is failing more and more… It gets compared to US PSN and you are always offering less and charge much more for Australia… Do you see XBox live or steam having this issue, no they don’t they keep the regions the same at least and their pricing for Australia isn’t so bloated. I hate paying at least double than the American prices, it is a joke, DLC should be cheap but so far to get all DLC for a game in Australia is like paying for the same amount as you have paid the game and sometimes more… The entire DLC content for a game doesn’t offer more content than the full game so why it costs the same or more…

I am insulted, yes I am waiting only for Retro City Rampage, I have been waiting ever since Sony announced it over a year ago, its trailers over the year made major fan service… The fact is Euro PSN has failed to realise that delaying the title hurts it customers because they were waiting for the game to be released for ages and you are delaying it for what, for your own benefit.

I will hound you again and again for RCR, I will never make another purchase on PSN and refuse to get PSN plus until Retro City Rampage is released.

fredskijj 21 November, 2012 @ 7:32 pm   257

Hi, I just bought Sine Mora for Vita and downloaded, but it tells me it’s the trial, and  PSN store prompts me to pay for it again.. Download list says my version is ‘not compatible whith this device’.. 
Is this the right place to get a fix?

tin-cup-70 21 November, 2012 @ 7:38 pm   258

You got Safari for WRC3 listed there but there is no sign in the store of this DLC nor is there any info to find about it elsewhere.

zprandzioch 21 November, 2012 @ 7:43 pm   259

thx sony for psv titles in ps+ 🙂 great stuff

Not going to buy anything as long as the Singstar icon is there without the option to delete.


If, like me, you bought the latest Pinball Arcade DLC on your PSVita and can’t get the PS3 version in the PS3 store (both options give the PSVita version), there is an alternate solution: both versions are listed in your download list.

jozhster 21 November, 2012 @ 8:01 pm   262


Gladiator was my favourite its on japan store in HD and will hit US soon so probley will hit us sometime after.


the singstar icon is annoying but its not annoying enough to not buy games -_-


Not sure if this is intended or not but i can download All-Stars Battle Royal for FREE. Grab it while its hot 🙂

Uploaded with [URL=][/URL]

Also i love the games we get in PS+, specially Gravity rush which i was planning to buy so thank you Sony 😀

Carmanen 21 November, 2012 @ 8:17 pm   264

Syrus, i’ve already done that a couple of hours ago but it didn’t work:/ Is it working for you? I think Sony screwed up badly with this. I think it’s supposed to be trial version but it’s saying “full version”.


great job! ps plus…cross buy. wow

hey reydempto!! dw…i think everything will be just alrite. its just like the LBP incident (couldnt be installed) and sony fixed that.


What’s this? Walking Dead? On time?!
Good job! =)

SHIFTY_NIP 21 November, 2012 @ 8:34 pm   267

Media Go is showing Valkyria Chronicles II as $54.95 in Australia (I don’t have a ps3). Any chance of the discount extending to us down under?

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 9:56 am    

    The discount had not been pushed live to all territories at the time, but yes, it’ll be dropped in price where it was available previously. keep an eye on the store – the new price will be up shortly.


Carmanen, its almost halfway downloading now so i let you know 🙂

Phantom_Blaze 21 November, 2012 @ 8:38 pm   269

Hi Jawad,

do you know when the Wake Up Club app is going to be released in the UK?


patman180275 21 November, 2012 @ 8:41 pm   270

i thought planets under attack was going up today,can anyone tell me when it’s gonna get here

spoon_1992 21 November, 2012 @ 8:49 pm   271

Hey Jawad,

I hope you see this message since it’s all the way on page 6! 😛 Anyway, is there any chance of a dlc sale soon? 😀

RemyX-1988 21 November, 2012 @ 8:51 pm   272

I’m loving the free PSV games, but my 4GB Memory Stick doesn’t…
Why must you make your Memory Sticks so expensive, Sony?!

Oh, and where’s Retro City Rampage? How many weeks is it late now? Six? Hurry up!

The rest of the update is pretty decent, though.


Carmanen, you were right, it says its a demo once you start it up 🙁 o well it was to good to be true anyway 🙂

YritaEdes 21 November, 2012 @ 8:58 pm   274

Hey, what’s the situation on the Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus situation? Any hope it’ll reach Europe this year?

EndOfLevelBoss 21 November, 2012 @ 9:09 pm   275

Vita version of Battle Royale seems to be unavailable on the PSN store. Is that another mistake like with LBP a few weeks back? I was going to get this on PS3 and Vita with cross-buy but if there’s a problem with them I’ll hold off.

red_and_dead 21 November, 2012 @ 9:16 pm   276

Dear Jawad
I have just been onto the playstation store and noticed that the CoD Black ops season pass is £41.99. All retail outlets have been advertising it as £35 since the launch of the game (slightly more that the Xbox version), The season pass sold in store works as a credit top up only adding £35 to your playstation account so that you can purchase the season pass upon release. Could you shed some light on the pricing difference as we are going to have a lot of angry customers tomorrow 🙁 many thanks James (Game Canterbury)


why can’t i download Virtue’s Last Reward it refuses 2 let me download it when i bought it i downloaded it but nothing appeared and now i’m retrying 2 download and it won’t let me.

patman180275 21 November, 2012 @ 9:24 pm   278

i thought planets under attack was going up today,can anyone tell me when it’s gonna get here?
please some one must know something


Adie_Stone 21 November, 2012 @ 9:25 pm   279

Please dont give up on the PS3. Make sure you remember that on top of Vita.


What’s up with the pre-order auto-download of Lego The Lord of the Rings? It did not download on the 20th or 21st like it was supposed to and the download list now shows it as downloading on the 26th (and being playable on the 27th)… I hope that latter part is just some mistake. Either way, the pre-order character pack is already showing up as manually downloadable on the download list (though I obviously won’t download it without having the game first).

patman180275 21 November, 2012 @ 9:38 pm   281

Planets Under Attack…. when is it coming to the e.u????

Voodoo341 21 November, 2012 @ 9:49 pm   282

£33.99 for Saints Row the Third… what a joke!!! That’s with a discount… even worse! Some of the prices on the store for games is just pathetic. Sony really only want to rip their customers off.

Eurobo0y 21 November, 2012 @ 9:49 pm   283

Jawad no updates on the Way of the samurai 4 dlc?

Mat_Husky 21 November, 2012 @ 9:50 pm   284

So what the heck is “Dmc Devil May Cry”? I keep hearing different things from different places. Is it the first game in the Devil May Cry series? A new game? downloadable content for one of the existing games? Something else?

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 9:44 am    

    DmC is a “reboot”* of the DMC series featuring a younger Dante. How much younger, I have no idea, since he was roughly 19 in DMC3. It’s a new take on the franchise, with new ideas and as everyone should now know, a new dev behind it.

    *I say “reboot” because that’s what’s often thrown around, except the time it was said it’d be an alternate reality of sorts…guess we’ll find out the truth in January. I’m looking forward to it!

    I still say this guy is Nero… or at least not the real Dante. Basically it reminds me of DMC4 all over again (where they kept Dante’s announcement quiet for a while).

KylieDog 21 November, 2012 @ 9:58 pm   285

Black Ops II season pass is mispriced.

Is meant to be £35, this is the price and PSN credit you get by buying a season pass PSN voucher in a store (so currently it isn’t going to work), also listed as £35 on CoD/Activision/Treyarch websites.


PS Plus for VITA! Absolutely Killer!

This may have already been answered, but note that Sine Mora is out for PS3 and VITA, but can;t see anything about Cross-buy???? DOes anyone know?

Shadowdragoon 21 November, 2012 @ 10:17 pm   287

@mJ_mSv I allready got a UK account too. but all my games, etc is still on this account, so I rather want them to do propper EU releases to whole of EU than “forget” parts whit sloppy releases.
Or atleast introduce gifting that do not take in what country the reciver is in.. 😉

NightRanma 21 November, 2012 @ 10:41 pm   288

Can someone tell me when Tomba is going to be playable on Vita? I bought it as soon as it came out, but all this time it’s been unavailable on it. 🙁

Not much for me this week. Borderlands 2 dlc, and maybe some Vita PS+ stuff, though I’m disappointed that America got Jet Set Radio snuck in as a freebie, and we didn’t.

Also is anyone checking out the issue that came with Vita 2.0 where Vita stuff is showing up on PS3? Like I get party chat requests that have long since expired showing up on my PS3 when I turn it on, and messages I send to people show up in my inbox. =\


dmc demo was amazing i was not too interested in this until i played the demo but now im totally sold.

TeamEmperor 21 November, 2012 @ 10:59 pm   290

Well like many I bought Sine mora for £11.99 & when it downloaded all i got is a trial version??? And then the price was put down to £7.99. So have I just donated £11.99 to sony ??? It will not let me unlock the game saying its no longer available 🙁 Is this going to be fixed?

emad-E-three 21 November, 2012 @ 11:35 pm   291

Hi Jawad, wanna ask you if I download the Vita demo version for the PS All-Stars (1.6GB) will I be able to actvite it as Full game when I receive my PS3 copy or i’ll have to download it again ? Just asking 🙂

luke858585 21 November, 2012 @ 11:38 pm   292

When is Resident Evil 2 coming back to Vita? This question will probably be ignored but I’d thought I’d try asking anyway.

patman180275 21 November, 2012 @ 11:53 pm   293

Planets Under Attack? any release date?


@Mat_Husky: It’s a new game, apparently set in a parallel universe.

Tonello1976 22 November, 2012 @ 12:07 am   295

Hi Fred & Jawad.

(Part 1)

Long time reader, first time to post anything.
I’ve been a plus subscriber since the early days, and I must say, although it started great, it went a bit in the wrong direction for quiet a while, and now, it’s absolutely fabulous.

After reading the announcement of PS+ coming to Vita at NO extra cost, with Uncharted to begin with, you’ve got me doing something I didn’t want to do (for now at least)… buying a PS Vita.
So I bought one on Tuesday with a 32GB card, because anything smaller is a waste of money, because it will never be enough for all the games that are going to be thrown upon us, and in the end it will cost more to buy a few smaller cards.

I bought it especially a day before the start of the + service for the Vita, so that I would be ready for the action when it would hit us.
(everybody knows that the first day is a day of charging battery’s, installing stuff, and so on…and not that much gaming)

But damn did I get burned for being a (to) early buyer!

Tonello1976 22 November, 2012 @ 12:08 am   296

(Part 2)

Today, just after downloading Uncharted (YEAH) and all the other games, I got an email from Playstation with the announcement of PS+ starting for Vita, and to celebrate, take this email and go buy a Vita ’till the 24th of December and get a 8GB memory card for FREE at your local, participating store, the one were I got mine the day before…I mean…Come on… send the message a few days earlier! No?!
I always get announcement emails from Playstation a few days/weeks to late!
Although it doesn’t clearly say what the starting day is…

I’ve learned my lesson in the past for being a early buyer with games at day one, because it goes wrong way to often on the store(which was better with the old layout to be honest), but I didn’t expect to get burned like this!

Tonello1976 22 November, 2012 @ 12:09 am   297

(Part 3)

Another example is Unit 13 for Vita, I downloaded the demo yesterday, because I was thinking of buying it this week with the -20%. but know I won’t, why you ask? Well, because again I got a French speaking game, while I live on the Dutch speaking side of Belgium. So I’m sure that if the demo is in French, the complete game will also be in French. We want games in English, maybe with the option to select Dutch(don’t forget the kids), but for sure not with a language that isn’t our native one!

So could you guys check to see if the complete game of Unit 13 is in English in our Dutch speaking, Belgian store, so that I can be sure I’m not wasting my money once again and please, pretty please, help me to still profit from a deal that left me with a bitter feeling…(8gb is still 8gb, isn’t it?)


    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 9:37 am    

    I’ll find out what I can about which language Unit 13 is, but I’d assume it’d be the same as the demo. I’ll see if I can get confirmation.


Valkyria Chronicles II is still listed at £27.99 on the UK PSN store not £9.99 as advertised on the blog; several folks have pointed this out but none of the moderators have commented on the situation.

ChunkyDroid 22 November, 2012 @ 1:24 am   299


I cannot find the last Deathspank game, “The Baconing” on the store anywhere, I’m from Australia.

Looks like Thongs of Virtue isn’t on there either, but I already have that purchased.

teh__pwnerer 22 November, 2012 @ 4:00 am   300

Gravity Rush dlc for little big planet has the same problem as the hitman dlc. The packs are missing so you can only buy the stuff piece by piece.

bennyrafal 22 November, 2012 @ 5:27 am   301


1.Original XCom from PS1 on Vita would be great
2.Why i hear Hungarian voice acting in SINE MORA instead of English? I wont ask about Polish ones for obvious reasons….
my system is set to Polish settings, store is English



The voice acting in Sine Mora is supposed to be in Hungarian. It’s a Hungarian made game and that was how they chose to present it.
So it’s not some sort of error, have fun!

bennyrafal 22 November, 2012 @ 6:39 am   303

haha, Thanks 🙂


Nice update some nice vita games for free for PS+ members but I can’t help but compare to the US store they got 6 vita games and 2 ps3 games for free whereas EU store only got 4 vita games and 0 ps3 games how is that fair?

Is there a reason as to why they got more this week or I am missing something?

Hello again

Has the issue with Sine Mora on PSVITA been fixed yet so you can buy it now?

Hase the issue with PS Allstars on PSVITA been fixed yet so you can buy it now?

Where is Lego Lord of the Rings for PSVITA?

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 9:24 am    

    Apologies, these were released for a very short time on the store as free content as a mistake. The blog post pricing will be updated to change reflect the true pricing structure. Once again, I do apologise for this.

Will you put the GTA 5 trailers in the next store update?


Hi Jawad / Fred – Please can you look into the Valkyria Chronicles II pricing error on UK PSN which currently lists £27.99 and not the £9.99 advertised on the blog?

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 9:29 am    

    Hi, this is being looked into. It should be fixed pretty soon. Sorry about that.

Availability: All (releases Friday 23rd for UK/IRE)

Looks like the availability in the UK is 23rd now which explains why I cannot purchase it.

s8109csa_hun 22 November, 2012 @ 9:21 am   311

I’m also very excited about the Valkyria Chronicles II.
Unfortunately the hungarian PS store does NOT have it.
Please let the responsible people know this. And also GOW series for PSP. Maybe Pursuit Force Series.

Thanks in advance.

Sneachta 22 November, 2012 @ 9:57 am   312

Hi, quick (maybe strange) question, I put Valkyria Chronicles 2 on my Vita a few months back, since I had bought it for PSP … is there any difference in the PSP version I have running on Vita and the one now available ?
P.S. Valkyira Chronicles is one of the finest PSP games ever, any chance of getting No.3 over here ????

TeamEmperor 22 November, 2012 @ 9:58 am   313

Will SIne Mora be fixed soon. Its bad enough getting charged the wrong price but for it to just be the trial edition & not full game just sucks.

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 10:07 am    

    Please contact customer services to get this fixed. Only early buyers were affected with the issue.


Noticed you’ve been replying to some comments again this morning, Jawad. Any chance you could reply to my question about Lego Lord of the Rings’ pre-order download (page 6) :)?

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 10:07 am    

    Yep, I’m waiting for some feedback on that one.

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 10:10 am    

    And feedback has now been received.

    It isn’t good news unfortunately. The digital version has been delayed slightly, so this is the reason you are seeing a different date. If it does end up releasing the same time then this should change again. Very sorry about this sudden delay 🙁

Twiss18790 22 November, 2012 @ 10:13 am   315

great update this week!

@jawad is there any possibility of jak and daxter hd collection coming onto ps vita? Also is there anything in the pipeline about splinter cell coming out on ps vita that would be awesome!

nzlwarriors 22 November, 2012 @ 10:16 am   316

hey jawad
i have the same question as #177
when will dungeon defenders dlc 4 come out
psn us got it on sep 18th
pc got it in july
xbox got it on oct 24th

ive talk to trendy the makers of the game and still waiting on a release date so they can release the last patch

ive been asking this for the last six weeks but you never answer

Tem4ik_1998 22 November, 2012 @ 11:01 am   317

Hi Jawad,I bought PS All Stars for PS VITA and when I started the game asked the Online Pass though a digital version of it should be automatically built, I went to the shop and there I saw the online pass, I clicked on it and it has already been bought for some reason although money is not removed, I downloaded it and started All Stars, and the game all-pass online exactly asks what to do, Jawad?


Hi Jawad, also have problems with the vita version of PS all stars. I bought the retail copy on the ps3 version and then downloaded the vita version for free.
I installed the online pass etc. , but when i want to go online i get the following error when it want to load the UELA page, EULA c2-13688-6 error.
I tried restarting my vita, redownloading the online pass, but it doesn’t help.
I did notice when i had to accept the UELA on ps3 it says “file not found” but i can still accept it there and play online.
So any help how to get the online function to work on the vita would be welcome 🙂
Thanks in advance.

@Jawad Ashraf

got it 2 download through my ps3 got no error just diden’t appear but got it 2 work now through my ps3.

georgel07 22 November, 2012 @ 11:55 am   320

@Jawad Ashraf: I don’t want to contact customer support. I want refund and the reason it’s very simple: it’s your mistake, I don’t want to loose my time to fix what you did wrong.

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 1:50 pm    

    It’s actually not my mistake but I won’t go into that.

    I can’t personally give you a refund or go into your account and fix the issue – that is what customer services are there to help you with.

JadoreSox 22 November, 2012 @ 11:59 am   321

Valkyria Chronicles II is still showing as £27.99. Can anyone put my mind at ease and confirm it is compatible with Vita?

LFBlackLabel 22 November, 2012 @ 12:01 pm   322

Hi Jawad,

Any notice on when we will know which game will be PS+ game of the month? Thanks 🙂

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 1:54 pm    

    You’ll just have to wait and see. It’s great one. One of my personal favourites this gen.

DAVEHUDSON 22 November, 2012 @ 12:20 pm   323

yeh why does the usa plus have more then as in the uk or eu i dont have a vita and wont get one so what games do i get for my money on my ps3

Joutai_Henko 22 November, 2012 @ 12:30 pm   324

Where is Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus??? Should I wait? Or it will be easier to buy it from JP PSN?



Yesterday I bought the retail version of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal. It worked great and was tons of fun. What didn’t work however was the vita version I got with it. I successfully downloaded it to my Vita but when I opened it, it claimed that I was using some kind of trial version. It also claimed that I lacked a network pass, despite downloading it multiple times. I saw that at least two other persons who replied to this thread had similar issues but despite the many replies to various different posts, this concern remains unanswered. I would very much appreciate if someone answered how to resolve this issue.



Jawad Ashraf

I will not buy anything from sony until they remove the singstar spam on my PS3.

I suggest that all who hates this spam does the same. Hit them where it hurts, then maybe they will start to listen.


Ill ask as many others have, and as many other have since the release of Tomba!

When will the Vita Compatibility come ? cant be to hard, the US version has Vita compatibility :'(, bought it on release, expecting it to take a week or 2 for the vita update just like Klonoa did, however nothing …

    Fred Dutton 22 November, 2012 @ 1:16 pm    

    I’ve chased the developer for an update – will let you know if I get any news back.

Suzzopher 22 November, 2012 @ 1:16 pm   330

I sent Fred a message on PSN last night saying that the Sine Mora I purchased at £11.99 around 1pm was in fact the trial and not even the full game. Any chance I can get this refunded please?

    Fred Dutton 22 November, 2012 @ 1:22 pm    

    Pretty sure I replied to that message? Apologies if it didn’t go through. I’m afraid, as Jawad has noted, you need to speak to customer services ( They will be able to unlock the full game and discuss refunding the difference. If you have difficulties, feel free to come back to me over PSN. Again, sorry for the inconvenience – this issue affected a small number of people who purchased the game prior to the Blog post going live.

Ershin35 22 November, 2012 @ 1:23 pm   331

Where is Tomba 2 on the store?

Suzzopher 22 November, 2012 @ 1:24 pm   332

No worries, I have your message now, just appeared on my Vita. Thanks Fred.


@JadoreSox – apparently so if you download on the PS3 and then transfer to the Vita using the content manager app. I haven’t tried it myself but theres plenty of annecdotal evidence that says it works.

Hopefully the pricing error will be resolved bringing Valkyria Chronicles 2 within the realms of affordability (£28 is way too much to be asking of an old game).

supersmith2500 22 November, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   334

Tomba! 2 or is Monkeypaw having issues?

Darlo-Richie 22 November, 2012 @ 1:42 pm   335

Jawad, I know I gave you a lot of grief over the Walking Dead episosdes but I’m happy that at least the last episode was launched in good time.

Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 1:52 pm   336

Valkyria Chronicles II pricing has been updated and you too should be seeing the £9.99 price now. Enjoy.

what are the ps plus users who dont have a vite getting ?

    Fred Dutton 22 November, 2012 @ 2:11 pm    

    Your November games were Crysis 2, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Cubixx HD. You’ll have another batch of titles in December which we hope to detail next week. There are also weekly discounts on PS3 titles, as detailed at the top of this post.

Coody-Baroody 22 November, 2012 @ 2:30 pm   341


There really is no pleasing some people is there? Getting PS+ (which is already amazing value on PS3) on Vita included in the subsrciption price is an AWESOME bonus for all us Vita owners but it doesnt mean that the PS3 subscription is any LESS value now does it? We already get an amazing amount of free games so why is it that you think that anyone who doesnt own a Vita should now get MORE in their PS3 subs.

Have you even finished all the games we’ve already been given?

Coody-Baroody 22 November, 2012 @ 2:33 pm   342

Besides, theres nothing stopping ALL non Vita owners sticking all the free Vita stuff on their download list to download at a later date if you do get a Vita now is there?

This Vita PS+ program is obviously to get more people buying the Vita, the PS3 subs is already great enough value.

Any word on Phantasy Star Portable 1 or 2? I sort of bought a VITA knowing that these were available on PSN . . . Jokes on me.

AshishSahoo 22 November, 2012 @ 3:39 pm   344

Hey Jawad/Fred,
Just wanted to know something, is there any way to redeem ps3 igc games via vita or pc as my ps3 is not working right now and I would hate to lose the free ps3 igc games .
Any reply would be appreciated.

Project2insanity 22 November, 2012 @ 3:53 pm   345

@sem1471; You’re asking what Jawad deals with but are complaining he’s answering other questions? Please exercise some sense and don’t tell him how to do his job since you don’t have a complete understanding. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying flaws should be dismissed so by all means point them out but I wouldn’t patronise anyone without knowing the exact detail of his role.

If he were dealing with everything, customer service would be non-existent so that’s one thing you can tick off your list.

@Coody-Baroody; Spot on, man. It’s one heck of an incentive and certainly fast-tracking my plans to buy a Vita. PS Plus is killer value and I feel almost criminal not to benefit from added (this being the key word for those unbelievably claiming to be shafted) value. ^^

Stonesthrow 22 November, 2012 @ 3:55 pm   346

Once again, trying to find DLC in this new store is an absolute hassle. Going for LBP Gravity rush costumes now : Nowhere to be found in the newest section or under game extra’s. Nowhere to be found under LBP2 Add ons, then I finally found it under LBP Vita Add ons, but all the costumes are sold seperately and the pack is not there.
When will this store be sorted out? And the XMB for that matter? I love Playstation but this new store is the biggest letdown for me since the hack-attack. It’s an absolute bore to browse through and find what you need simple and quickly.
(The singstar logo is obviously still a sight for sore eyes too..)

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 4:05 pm    

    They’re showing up for me under Latest Add-Ons (sort by Newest first).

    You are correct that they do not show up under the game page. I’ll let this be known.

supersmith2500 22 November, 2012 @ 3:55 pm   347

Hey Jawad, the Civil War and Fantastic 4 tables for Zen Pinball 2 are marked as unavailable on PS Store. Any chance they can sort it out and also, 3 icons are missing in the PS3 games tab.

Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 4:21 pm   348


Those who had issues with PlayStation All-Stars, these have now been fixed. If you were missing a network pass (Vita purchases), you should go back to the store and you will be able to claim it.

Hope that helps. Please do post again if other issues crop up.

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 4:22 pm    

    To clarify, if you purchased the Vita version through PS Store and had no network pass, then return to PS Store to claim it.


Thank you for the reply on Lego Lord of the Rings, Jawad 😀 I was hoping it was just an error, but as long as it’s not delayed any further than the 26th/27th, I think I can wait a bit longer. Sadly even the Vita version didn’t arrive at my usual store until today, and since it’s coming through mail it’ll arrive only next week as well. No Lego Lotr this week 🙁

Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 4:45 pm   350

Good news, Panets Under Attack is now available to buy!


Hi Jawad

What about the EULA c2-13688-6 error? You got any news on that? Also refer to my post #317.
Tried to redownload the online pass again after your post but it didnt help. 🙁

    Jawad Ashraf 22 November, 2012 @ 5:07 pm    

    I’ll raise it with the guys. I’d imagine it’s part of the issues that should have been sorted.

hounddog56 22 November, 2012 @ 4:58 pm   352

cs go still no 1 saying anything

JediKnight246 22 November, 2012 @ 5:42 pm   353

Is there any news on the PS3 YouTube app for Europe? It’s been a while since the last time we heard anything about it. 🙁


Hi fred just to make you guys aware, i seem to be having issues with Motostorm Artic Edge on the vita after the new 2.00 FW update doesn’t seem to boot up and crashes my vita. it’s the free version i have as i’m aware theirs a difference in file size between this and the version that came back onto the store a while back

patman180275 22 November, 2012 @ 6:33 pm   355

i can not get “planets under attack”…
does anyone know if has actually gone on the store?

WhiteSenji 22 November, 2012 @ 7:26 pm   356

Okay someone has probably asked this before, but i’m concerned is Legend Of Dragoon going to say daylight at the EU? Its already on NA and Japan, this game has been very precious to me and i really would like to get it to my PS3, is there chance ?

patman180275 22 November, 2012 @ 7:32 pm   357

i can not get “planets under attack”…
does anyone know if has actually gone on the store?
has anyone got any imfo???????

ducky1549 22 November, 2012 @ 7:42 pm   358

Hi it says there’s 4 add-on packs for mass effect 3 on the list, but there’s only 1 been added to the store, is this an error or is there a problem with this?


Nice update for a change,and nice to have ps plus on the vita, that’s all I’m saying this week.

monkey010103 22 November, 2012 @ 8:53 pm   360

Playstation allstars awesome awesome and yet again awesome

fps_d0minat0r 22 November, 2012 @ 8:55 pm   361

Hi Jawad,

I remember a few weeks ago, someone asked about the walking dead episodes being free for PS+ and you said you would look into it. Would you have any more info on that?

Also whats the possibility of getting EA online passes for plus members? theres a lot of games I would buy pre-owned but dont because the online passes cost just as much as the games do pre-owned.


    Jawad Ashraf 23 November, 2012 @ 11:47 am    

    It’s better to suggest this on the Plus post.

    At the moment neither are up for consideration – there are some other interesting titles to look forward to, however. December’s game of the month is a good one.

Project2insanity 22 November, 2012 @ 9:07 pm   362

@fps_d0minat0r; I wouldn’t hold my breath for online passes being covered. They weren’t designed as an incentive to buy pre-owned titles so it’s extremely unlikely they’ll push otherwise via Plus. I also suspect it would draw heavy backlash from those of us who buy new.

MordecaiHunter 22 November, 2012 @ 9:43 pm   363


You STILL Have Not Got EU Customers Answers to why The US Got The Option to download the SINGSTAR app ! and still it is forced upon EU Customers


One_Shot_KiIIer 22 November, 2012 @ 10:08 pm   364

I’m going to enjoy the PS all-stars game for the Vita and PS3 only because I just bought them Both for £39.99 lol Thats a great offer for both consoles 😀

Voodoo341 22 November, 2012 @ 10:14 pm   365

No PS+ discount for Planets Under Attack, Sine Mora, When Vikings Attack, Dyad, Unfinished Swan, The Walking Dead etc but I do get a discount for Saints Row 2 (which was given away) Saints Row 3 and F1 Racing Stars. Which I can buy cheaper from other places. Fantastic!

But I get to look at ‘free’ Vita content I paid for but can’t access. Fantastic!

PS+ cons

patman180275 22 November, 2012 @ 10:42 pm   366

i can not get “planets under attack”…
does anyone know if has actually gone on the store?


hello jawad

myself and many have posted about the pricing of black ops 2 season pass and you have responded to one person saying you will look into it.

so is their any update the pass should not be £42 it should be £35 like MW3 pass was, activision and GAME tell me the same thing and it is being sold on other consoles for that price.

please respond with an update
otherwise great update 🙂


Jamesyp00 23 November, 2012 @ 12:19 am   368

I downloaded/pre-ordered PSABR, when i went to install the alternate outfits on my PS3, it told me to connect my vita, where are my PS3 outfits?


Ok I lyed,maybe it’s because singstar has been a huge success over here and sells like ps3’s over America lol


Again, why didn’t we get Counter Strike:: Global Offensive? Any kind of answer would suffice right now, even if you guys said “Yeah, we’re lazy , now go drink some pancake mix.” I mean, XBL EU has it, as far as I know every other platform has it globally, PS3 users everywhere else except EU have it so what in the world is the issue? And also, why didn’t we get the YouTube app? Was that too difficult too? I mean the app even supports some languages of countries it’s not even available in so I don’t see any point in not releasing it… Seriously guys, what’s the matter? “No comment” is not an answer, it’s an insult.

Hayatofal 23 November, 2012 @ 1:53 am   371

er, why does everyone else have Hitman Absolution: Suits and guns collection but the EU store doesn’t?
Please for the love of god just say it’s slightly delayed or something and it’ll be out soon :S


Can you please put Hyperdimension Neptunia and Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 avatars on the European store?

They are available at the US store.

We want them, please.

Thank you very much.

Tem4ik_1998 23 November, 2012 @ 3:35 am   373

Hi Jawad, I recently learned that you fix a bug with the online pass with Playstation All Stars Battle Royal, but when I went to the Playstation Store I was again asked to buy Playstation All Stars. And online pass, I can not download, there is no button to download, help me please!

Shnoorum 23 November, 2012 @ 3:52 am   374

Hello there Jawad. Any word as to why Tomba 2 was pulled out the store or when it will be back? Literally just got my months paycheck and went online to buy it but it’s been taken off. Really wish I could have got in there earlier now. Heartbroken


The customer service section of Sony is probably the one unit that is making a proffit. Every week PSstore customers are beta testing the release and always stuff goes wrong. Wrong prices, wrong locations, wrong names, trail in stead of the actual game and the list goes on. You should make this a game and give trophies like “you found the 4th vita plus game in the wrong section” or “you payed to much sucker”.
When will we see a profesional store team?


Come on guys the singstar icon not doing any harm now is it,I know I twisted about it last week but really to stop buying games over a silly icon.(have you actually played singstar it’s great fun,so don’t knock it before you tryed it.i don’t the singstar icon got used to it now.




Hi Jawad

I pre-ordered PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and I loved it but I have problem with Alternate Costume Pack. I can’t download it and it shows me that it will Auto-Download on 17/11/2012!!!

Can you fix it please??


    Jawad Ashraf 23 November, 2012 @ 11:49 am    

    You should be able to download this through your download list, but I’ll have someone take a look into the issue.


@tem4ik1998,go back in store then download list and redownload it from there

Tem4ik_1998 23 November, 2012 @ 6:06 am   380

@ de3bs0, who? online pass? or game?

patman180275 23 November, 2012 @ 7:02 am   381

i can not get “planets under attack”…
does anyone know if has actually gone on the store?

bennyrafal 23 November, 2012 @ 7:41 am   382

Yes, what about Singstar?!


just out of interest, does anyone know what the Store software update was supposed to do, because as far as I can tell it’s just as slow, unintuitive and clumsy to use as it was before

SyLaR__GrEy 23 November, 2012 @ 10:37 am   384

Where is Lego LotR? Whay has the date been changed by yourselves from the 23rd to the 27th without informing those who preordered? Why can I buy an actaul physical copy of the game 20 quid cheaper than your digital version? But more importantly, why can I not download the game on release day having paid for it? Why do I have to wait till the 27th? Whats was the point in pre ordering? I’d like a refund so I can buy it today(release day) for 20 quid cheaper.
Shambles of a service.

TINTINTB303 23 November, 2012 @ 10:55 am   385


£20 cheaper for LOTR you say!?!?!

It is only £39.99 on the store and you can get a physical copy for only £19.99!!!!

WOW, that is a brilliant deal!!

Please can I have a link to the retailer you are using because if I can pick up LOTR (new and physical copy) for £19.99 then I want a piece of that action.

A link would be great as that is a BRILLIANT offer 🙂


Tem4ik_1998 both you can download the game and the online pass again

SyLaR__GrEy 23 November, 2012 @ 11:37 am   387

@TINTINB303 I Ilive in Ireland. This game is 50 euro on the Store, and my local toy shop is selling this game for 30, YES, 30 quid. I cant give a link as they dont have an online store. But if you look around Im sure you’ll find it way cheaper. The shambles that is Sony Entertainment Network regularly sell overpriced digital games that can be found much cheaper elsewhere. The fact that its 50 quid doesnt bother me as my son can download it too, but the fact that its not up on release day for people who have prebooked is just unacceptable.

I’m assuming the Vita version of Jet Set Radio HD is virtually identical to the PS3 version.
I was hoping for some cross-compatibility love from Sony here.
Instead I’ve got to pay for it again.

Missed trick there.
I know a lot of people who are put off by this.

SyLaR__GrEy 23 November, 2012 @ 11:56 am   389

Thank you for the swift reply Jawad but in future when release dates change maybe you could inform us sooner.

Jamesyp00 23 November, 2012 @ 11:58 am   390

Hey Jawad, The PS3 DLC shows up in my download list now, But it says it’s set to auto- download on the 17/11/2012 :S If i untick this option, it doesn’t change anything and i still can’t download it.

Jamesyp00 23 November, 2012 @ 12:20 pm   391

I’m also missing a network pass for the PS3 version too :/

jason9540 23 November, 2012 @ 1:24 pm   392

Hey Jawad i have pre-ordered Playstation all stars and got alternate costumes dlc but its the 23rd and it lets me download the game but not the costume it just says auto download off or on.

Jamesyp00 23 November, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   393

No more answers today? I’d like to play the game i got please, with the online + DLC.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 November, 2012 @ 2:48 pm    

    I’ve raised the issues and waiting to hear back. Seems strange you don’t have the network pass. Let me know if it’s still not showing in your download list.

AshishSahoo 23 November, 2012 @ 2:24 pm   394

Hey Jawad,
Thanks for the honest replies. Just wanted to give a suggestion, I hope now that igc has been added to vita, I hope for some months of the year “Plus game of the month” is a vita game instead of a ps3 one. It may be a minority demand, but I hope that you can do to keep plus members like me who use vita more than ps3.

Jamesyp00 23 November, 2012 @ 3:00 pm   395

hey Jawad, The network pass isn’t there but iv’e heard people saying it’s built into the digital version of the game, so when it’s downloaded i’ll confirm that.
The appearance pack DLC is now on the PSABR page in the add-on content section, It’s let me download and install from there 🙂


Will the following Uncharted 3 DLC be available to download free for a limited time only like the previous Uncharted 2 DLC free limted time offer? If so, will it be about one month before the planned PSN release of Uncharted 3?

Flashback Map Pack 1
The Fort Co-op Adventure
Flashback Map Pack 2
Co-op Shade Survival Mode
Drake’s Deception Map Pack

AntGreenfield 23 November, 2012 @ 3:44 pm   397


Is it possible to contact you or someone directly about a store issue without going through customer services? Need to raise a problem but don’t want to do it here for reasons that will be obvious once I’ve discussed it 🙂


Hey, don’t suppose you know when kingdom hearts 1 & 2 are. coming to the Irish store?

Luna_Dragon 23 November, 2012 @ 4:24 pm   399

Kingdoms of Amalur is here!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEASE can this be considered one of the PS+ titles for the instant game collection in the future!!

kudos to Jawad for keeping us all updated on the fixes 🙂 thanks man!

Luna_Dragon 23 November, 2012 @ 4:25 pm   400

p.s. id also like a nice wee discount on a Walking Dead package 😉

Jamesyp00 23 November, 2012 @ 6:04 pm   401

Just wanted to confirm that the digital version does indeed come with the pass built in, Great game 🙂


Best reply-week ever, keep it up 🙂

andreasnordboe 23 November, 2012 @ 7:25 pm   403

So where is Epic Mickey 2 for PS3 in the Norwegian Store? It does not say unavailable in Norway, was hoping to play it today as the retail stores are closed 🙁 Another disappointing week.

spuddy15 23 November, 2012 @ 7:35 pm   404

hey dunno if anyone else noticed but where did tomba 2 go? was thinking whether to buy it then when i decide to its gone, any ideas?


It got took away from the store as the sound was slowed down,hopefully it gets fixed soon.

padraigofaoilean 23 November, 2012 @ 7:50 pm   406

I also think its a complete disregard for the Pre-bookers of Lego LOTR on PSEU store! No one told us the date would be pushed back, let me get this straight. So Jawad, by Pre booking said title, what I’ve got is I’ve lost my RESALE VALUE, but not only that,I Have to wait a week later than Disc based release date to play the game? Could you please tell me why it is called PRE-BOOK,and are the Pre orderees to be reimbursed in some form, maybe some DLC would soften this unbelievable blow??Please answer, I shall never PRE book a game on the PS STORE again, What a mistake you guys have made this time, absolute joke!!

padraigofaoilean 23 November, 2012 @ 7:56 pm   407

Also Jawad, your link to cancel Pre order download is of no use to us because the funds have already been removed for the game for some reason? 50 euro wasted, and I’ll be darned if im going to ring Sony and go through a load of crap, not to mention a gynormous phone bill, just to add to the problem, which is big enough as is, please reply with some answers??


Jawad can we have some ratchet n clank all for one avatars please pretty please with a cherry on top.thanks


I’m not trying to start a fight with anyone but please wait till the game is in retail,never should you buy season passes or pre order from ps store you all know it just ends in tears.i’ve said it many times before.there’s nothing wrong with waiting a few days and then going into town to buy the game,like I said I’m not trying to start a fight with anyone just trying to save you the disappointment when the preorder goes wrong.


@403,I don’t know epic mickey was released the 18th november,maybe it got delayed in your country,try checking for your release date.


Great update if own a Vita, but for those of us that don’t own/want one then not good at all. For us PS3 only users the last two games are pretty poor, especially if you’re a trophy hunter.

Cubixx requires you to have (because of the dead online) SEVEN controllers/peripherals to obtain one trophy. Crysis 2 requires you to log on through the game six months after your first login to get one of the trophies. Two carefully selected games to try and squeeze money out of us.

I’m not even going to mention SingSpam……..oops, too late

Dark_Overlord 23 November, 2012 @ 9:18 pm   412

Could you please stop avoiding the COD season pass issue, it is wrongly priced on the store. Even the official COD website says £34.99 🙂

supersmith2500 23 November, 2012 @ 9:25 pm   413

Yeah, trophy hunters might have a problem Platting Crysis 2, 6 months? Don’t know what EA were thinking. Plus there is no way to earn it quickly either.

Dark_Overlord 23 November, 2012 @ 9:31 pm   414

@ supersmith2500

That’s if you can get it to unlock at 6 months (most have to wait at least 7), plus the MP is the laggiest POS I’ve ever played, it’s horrible.

KaiserSoza13 23 November, 2012 @ 9:32 pm   415

I just bought Playstation All-Stars for €55 on PS3 expecting to find a dlc code for the Vita version inside the box,instead I find I need to run the game on a PS3 first before I can download the game,why make it so god damn complicated, 12 digits is all I needed, I dont have a PS3 as mine is broken. I will now have to wait until December 25th, almost four weeks away to play the vita version, god damn your backdated ways SONY.

solarwind12 23 November, 2012 @ 10:15 pm   416

Someone mentioned that Uncharted3 is to soon become a digital/psn title, is this correct and if so when, it’s just i am hoping this is NOT going to be Decembers, or any future IGC game of month, i wil be renewing plus soon, but want to hold of until i see what the big surprise thats in store for Dec is.

One feature i believe Scee or sce should add to our service is this customer service, when theres been a major mistake made but all Jawad or Fred can do is put up a link showing CS’s phone-numbers. which do cost money to call, Not the premium rate charges that some claim, but still enough to cause ill-will, now when a mistake happens similar to wednsdays, was it sine mora, ?.. or any game where more than a handful are having problems, well i believe sce should then open up a Freephone number, i mean it Is their mistake and all onus is on them to rectify it, having to pay a phone charge atop of allready obvious frustration really is so wrong.. Also just for info, the main competitors Customer-Services number is Allways Free to call.. Regardless of inquiry, so i hope either sce stops making mistakes, or stops charging Us to get em fixed.

Hayatofal 23 November, 2012 @ 10:35 pm   417

Hitman Absolution: “Suits and Gun Collection” where is it?

OuendanCyrus 24 November, 2012 @ 2:23 am   418

So yeah, no Castlevania: SotN or Retro City Rampage, what a waste of my time.


Suoersmith2500,what about put your ps3 clock forward 6 months would that not do anything.just a guess.




Supersmith2500,what about putting the ps3’s clock forward 6 or 7 months would that work,it’s just a guess.


Hey Jawad just heard if you buy ratchet n clack all 4 one limited edition you get free avatars,any chance they will be coming to ps store as I’ve always wanted r n c all 4 one avatars.

supersmith2500 24 November, 2012 @ 11:18 am   423

It won’t work, It has to be first time playing then 6 months later play online again and trust me it can be a real pain to get this trophy and also it can glitch. With thanks to that trophy Crysis 2 is impossible to Plat and much harder as Hard to the Core trophy in Dead Space 2. 3 saves, no continues and very limited ammo and aggressive AI. But Crysis 2 tops that one.



Before we got a new store Ar Tonelico Qoga DLC was available in Polish store, now it is not… I can understand that new NISA content doesn’t get released here as were are 3rd world country but why pull off something that was already there? …


@darkoverlord,I agree then you have blops 2 season pass on Xbox live for 4000 Microsoft points which is about £35.then again it would be cheeper on Xbox live cause activision and treyarch are special friends with Microsoft.


Seriously game dev must think ps3 owners are (censored) stupid,ohh it’s only the ps3 version (censored) them.ohh and stop (censoring) censoring me.

jozhster 24 November, 2012 @ 3:51 pm   427

any update on black ops 2’s pricing?

jozhster 24 November, 2012 @ 3:52 pm   428

sorry for spam 😛

jozhster 24 November, 2012 @ 3:57 pm   431

again sorry for all the repeat posts above.

please look into adding a remove button


jozhster 24 November, 2012 @ 4:02 pm   432


oh my bad didn’t see your above post, they need to sort this soon because their gunna lose sales to another console who has the correct price and their customers are gunna get ripped off including me who bought the season pass card from GAME.

Aerhymnos 24 November, 2012 @ 8:23 pm   433

Hi, I will have just one question. When the avatars of Disgaea, Hyperdimension Neptunia and Mugen Souls will be available in Belgium? It has been several days that they are available in France but still nothing on the Belgian store ….. Thank you in advance.

monkey010103 25 November, 2012 @ 1:04 am   434

playstation allstars awesome awesome and yet again awesome!

KylieDog 25 November, 2012 @ 7:05 am   435

It has been several days and Black Ops II season pass is still mispriced.

Look, £35, PSN vouchers sold in stores for season pass are £35. I know is a reply somewhere said it being looked into…how hard is it to phone activision/whoever and double check pricing.

ShivaRpgN 25 November, 2012 @ 2:52 pm   436

Where is Tomba 2? Why did you take that game down and removed it from this page?

Hi Jawad,
I bought pre-order of AC3 gold edition. Last Friday I got the redeem code for exclusive DLC . But the problem is Psn not accepting my redeem code and also can’t find the content either in game it in the store! I think it is probably the content is not available in Turkey store. When will the content available in Turkey store?

jozhster 25 November, 2012 @ 6:58 pm   438

jawad or fred

black ops 2 season pass is mispriced, please look into it.


OniMayhem 26 November, 2012 @ 12:15 am   439

Where is the rachel master dlc for ninja gaiden sigma?


The pre-order has been charged now and the auto-download process of Lego Lotr apparently began at 2 am – yet nothing showed up in Download Management when I used the controller to access the PS3 to see progress and there’s nothing to install either. Hoping there’s some progress in the evening/it’s available for manual download then.

to any trophy hunters complaining about this months FREE games would you prefer it if they were Hannah Montana and Terminator Salvation instead.


@oggy,oggy,oggy,oi,oi,oi,we not complaining its just a pointless trophy and such a waste of time.i’m not into trophy anyway.


Black ops 2 season pass overpriced,what’s the point of us ps3 owners even having it,we still have to wait a month for the maps MW3 elite comes to mind just look at the mess that was.


I would just like to say that I keep on seeing posts on HotUKDeals about the XBox Live service providing numerous Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts and I am shocked that when pretty much every website and store seems to be having at least some attempt at providing discounts during this period; the PlayStation Store has not had any additional sales for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday periods. Can anyone from Sony’s staff explain why this is the case?

Bassmonkey_Mike 26 November, 2012 @ 5:18 pm   445

how long do we have to wait for our £11.99 Sine Mora refund…Wed maybe, around 4pm?? 😉


Cause Sony thinks we are actually dumb enough to pay £45 for black ops 2 seasons pass.while Xbox actually treat there customers with the upmost respect.and Sony don’t care as long as there getting money from us.its sad as ps3 black op 2 fans will actually pay the £45 price tag.


Sorry that should be £40

TINTINTB303 26 November, 2012 @ 6:13 pm   448


LOL, did you really think Sony would be stupid enough to just put a code on a piece of paper to download the Vita version.

I’ve been saying this to people for ages.

If they did that then every person who owned a Vita and not a PS3 would be buying the PS3 version, using the code then selling/trading the PS3 version they don’t need and thus getting the Vita version bearly free of charge.

Sorry. It doesn’t work like that.

Oh and we believe you (thousands wouldn’t) that your PS3 is, umm, “broken”….. 😉

Skookie30 26 November, 2012 @ 8:17 pm   449

for anybody that want a Cheap season pass look in GAME they doing a xbox 360 Bops season pass for 31.99, this season pass is a Rip off it cost more then last year Cod Elite plus you get Loads for just 35 quid.

SONY & activision is Pure GREED. 😐


It’s not just the Blops 2 season pass that’s overpriced, you can buy most games cheaper on disc somewhere else. Microsoft have secured a 3 year deal with Activision so every dlc for every COD game gets released for Xbox and pc 30 days before PS3.

About a month ago Microsoft were in the running (Sony can’t afford it) to buy the subsidiary of Activision that own COD. I don’t know what’s happening with that, but if Microsoft got it then COD would be Xbox/pc only.

SyLaR__GrEy 27 November, 2012 @ 9:20 am   451

Here we are, November 27th! 4 days after its release date and still waiting on Lego lotr. But are you guys waiting on your money? Hell no!! You took my money and promised me the digital version for the 23rd. Where is my game?
SonyEU is so unprofessional it makes me [DELETED] embarrassed. I’d be surprised if anybody even bothers to read this, but the Playstation Store has got its last penny from me.


I think it would be better off if cod was Xbox and pc only.

spagetti69 27 November, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   453


You clearly haven’t got a clue have you?


What you on about?

Catkiller1 27 November, 2012 @ 2:17 pm   455


I hope you’re still frequenting this section of the blog??

I just wanted to know if the Aftermath expansion for Battlefield 3 will be available today within the store? I have the Premium membership, so it should display, shouldn’t it? If so, what time is this expected?

Kind Regards


You don’t have a clue either,you can’t even get my Name right.


Don’t start with me over this all I’m saying is if activision/trayacre care that much about the Xbox 360 why don’t they just stick with the 360 version.i don’t recall any cod game working properly on ps3.and if activision/trayacre cared that much about they game they’d release cod equal on both platforms and bring the dlc out at the same time instead of making ps3 owners feel like they don’t deserve the new maps for choosing the wrong console.and the price of the black ops 2 season pass is £40 but it’s £35 on Xbox live,you can say what you like about this comment but I know people feel the same way.

@ de3bs0

‘trayacre’???? 😉

Joking aside I have to agree with you. I putt off MW3 due to the Elite subscription but April this year there were spare copies of the hardened edition for £40 @ Gamestation so I nabbed a copy at that price! I bought Black Ops 2 yesterday with credit from trade-ins but the Season Pass is a joke! If they were expansions like BF3 then it would sway my decision but for map packs…..forget it!

Just a shame that the Black Ops 2 Hardened edition doesn’t include the pass, as I would pick it up within a few months due to the price drop!

1) Not about this update but why is a few games on the PSN priced at around £59.99. If it’s a digital version why charge more? We’re not paying VAT for this content (well I don’t think online content requires VAT of any sort) so all of that £60 goes to the company.

2) When will we see the PSN+ for the PSV. Is there a reason why it’s not around yet? If we know more then it’d be easier to patiently wait for PS+ On the Vita.

3) If you save data onto PS+ and then you ran out of PS+ is there anyway to bring back the save data onto your PS3 and safe onto your PS3’s hard drive? I’ve just got PS+ and I’m a bit worried about whether to use this feature or not


4) The auto-fund system for PS+, how does that work? Does it fund PS+ for a month, 90 days or a full year? Can you change it to allow you to choose how much money it takes out?


The ps plus came out for vita last week.


I not answering any more questions,as I don’t have a clue what I’m talking about according to one person on here,see try to help people and people just throw it but in your face.

Black ops 2 season pass should be 34.99 not 41.99 when are you gunna fix it both GAME and Activision are saying its 34.99 why are you ignoring the question? why should we pay 7 more pound then your competitors? its bad enough you made a mistake but not fixing it for a week and ignoring us is not how you treat your customers. The only response we have got is you saying you will look into this last week is their any other update? Please fix this sony.


Quotes from Activision:

“Buy the Call of Duty®: Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass and get all four DLC Map Packs for the discounted price of £34.99.

“Save £5, at discounted suggested retail price of £34.99”

your thoughts jawad/fred/SCEE?

@ jozhster_ and All asking about BLOPs2 season pass.
Fred answered this in the weekly round-up, he said it is not a pricing mistake, then added the ‘official’ lines, ‘i can’t say any more about it’, basically it IS £42.99 for real, well for us in EU, as apparently all other regions Are selling it for the advertised and recommended rrp quoted on Activision’s website. So what we, or I wish to know is Why ?. i mean charging us £7 more than is advertised, is this extra going towards scee, or have Activision made mistake ?. i see no valid reason or (legal) need for us not to be told if it Is Activision’s ‘fault’, so i can only assume Freds use of ‘can’t comment’ is to protect scee from possible ill-will, I am though ‘hoping’ to be told i am wrong. But by a member of team.



its £32 on Xbox so we was already being ripped off by £3 but now we are being ripped off by £10, I checked an exchange rate site and £42 is $66 and ps3 users in US have it for $50 that is CRAZY.

if this doesn’t get sorted i’m going to report Sony/Activision to Watchdog in the UK under fair tranding standards because we are being ripped off.

anyone else who is upset should report to watchdog aswell.

Thanks for replying to my comment Jawad it’s a shame we didn’t get Jet Set Radio for free like they did in the US but i went and bought it anyway and i can say it is well worth the 7.99!


SCEE, I would like to ask for comment regarding the price gouging of your customers. The Vita games in the EU region stores are in some cases over 300% more expensive than our friends that are lucky enough to have access to the US store.
Please see the below price list as posted in the US PS Blog today:
•Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational – PS Vita (now: $17.99 original price: $35.99)
•Little Deviants – PS Vita (now: $17.99 original price: $26.99)
•MLB 12: The Show – PS Vita (now: $17.99 original price: $26.99)
•ModNation Racers: Road Trip – PS Vita (now: $17.99 original price: $26.99)
•Reality Fighters – PS Vita (now: $17.99 original price: $26.99)
•Resistance: Burning Skies – PS Vita (now: $26.99 original price: $35.99)
•Smart As… – PS Vita (now: $26.99 original price: $29.99)
•Uncharted: Golden Abyss – PS Vita (now: $35.99 original price: $44.99)
•Unit 13 – PS Vita (now: $26.99 original price: $35.99)
•WipEout 2048 – PS Vita (now: $17.99 original price: $26.99)
I don’t expect to receive comment, but it would be appreciated.


@ de3bs0

It’s not a case of Activision caring, it’s like i said in a previous post – Microsoft have secured a deal for COD.

Basically, EVERY dlc for EVERY Call Of Duty game for the next 3 years will be released on XBox and PC 30 days (and cheaper) before PS3.


@ jozhster

I completely agree with you. Watchdog are already aware of the SingStar spam and adding this will interest them more. Sony can only stay silent for so long before they have to start giving committed answers.
