Hi everyone. Jawad is away on holiday this week so I am stepping in for him; please see below the content list for this week’s store release. Highlights include the release of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD and the keenly-anticipated follow up to Knytt Stories, Knytt Underground.

I’m also happy to announce the Tokyo Jungle Remote Play patch went live at 8am GMT today!

While I’m here, I just wanted to confirm that all Festive Sale deals advertised last week will go live between today and 21st December when the store update takes place. We’ll also have some additional deals going live in the next few days – stay tuned for details.

So, that’s all from me for 2012 but Jawad will be back in the new year to ensure you are kept up to date with the latest releases on PlayStation Store. The first Store update of 2013 takes place on 9th January. Have a great festive season everyone!

Hey Chris :).

Do you know when the Scott Pilgrim online DLC will be available?
The trophies for it have been up for some time now, but still no sign of the DLC release date.

Thanks in advance!

1.1

No sorry I have no news on this at the moment

@Chris Howe

Chris once again no one’s been in reply as to why I didn’t receive my 10% PS+ Discount for Need For Speed Most Wanted. The Discount was there for short time before it Just simply Disappeared. Can you please Reply in what you can do about this as I rightfully wanted to Purchase that Game for £21.59 and did not do so as It was incorrectly displaying £23.99. The Deal has passed now so what can you do about it now for me wanting to Buy It with the Eligible PS+ Discount I have? It’s beyond frustrated me and with no Official Comment I’m getting fed up of repeating myself on every blog.

Aww was hoping for Okami HD & Street Fighter X Tekken Disc-locked-characters unlock key to go on a sale or get their prices adjusted to a fairer price :/

Chris, I Bought Uncharted: Fight for Fortune Complete Edition for Vita and it says it is Trial-version and tells me to buy full version. I thought that I did buy full version when I bought Complete Edition????

4.1

There is a trial version as well, did the money get taken from your wallet? If so and you have not received the full game you will need to contact customer services.

http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2011/08/01/guide-to-playstation-customer-services/

Will we see Retro City Rampage next week?

5.1

The next Store update is 9th January. It shouldn’t be long now – we’re just waiting for the developer to confirm his preferred release date.

supersmith2500 19 December, 2012 @ 15:05

Err. wrong icon for Munch’s Oddysee? Any chance for a quick fix Chris and any news for Retro City Rampage and Munch’s Oddysee for Vita. Thanks.

Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 16:01
6.1

The VITA version of Munch’s Oddysee HD is due in February 2013, and is coming along quite nicely.

@ Jawad (comment 1/5):

Hi there! Sorry if I haven’t posted anything here when you delivered the good news for our beloved Spyro, but another phone company switched the contract with our current one with theirs and I couldn’t access the internet for a week or so as a result; nonetheless, when I found out by connecting with my father’s phone (3G), well… I don’t need to tell you how ecstatic I was.

(to be continued)

@ Jawad (continued from my first comment):

The Spyro trilogy, regardless of its import-only status, is an important addition to our PSOne Classics, and not only because he and Crash were Sony’s co-mascots back in the day. Without the sheer genius of these games’ design, the Sony fandom wouldn’t have the Ratchet & Clank series today. A second playthrough of the first game, that kept me busy while waiting for the 12th of December (or for my internet connection to return to normal, for that matter), made me notice many thing in retrospect.

(to be continued)

Retro City Rampage.. For heaven’s sake.

Come on!! It’s GOLD already…

9.1

As Fred says above we are just waiting for the publisher to confirm the release date, should be early January

@ Jawad (continued from my second comment):

The first Spyro game shows a lot of potential alone by mixing a humble premise and simple controls with the ambition to do a lot with them. Also, doing a 100% run made me notice that the criteria for accessing the next world is automatically met in several occasions: fully completing the first world and then the homeworld of the second one grants you the right to visit the third; fully completing the first two worlds lets you skip the third; and so on. All in all, this is reminiscent of several “collectathons” often seen in the Playstation/N64 era.

(to be continued)

Why is EscapeVektor not releasing in Sweden!!!??

@ Jawad (continued from my third comment):

Needless to say, things get even better in the second game, and reach their apex in the third. I’m really glad that, after “whining” so much, I can now get to praise SCEE’s hard work for real. Of course, the Spyro trilogy doesn’t mark the end of the “missing Classics” at all, but it’s still a giant step forward.

(to be concluded)

@ Jawad (continued from my fourth comment):

Last but not least, thanks for posting my drawings in that post, and kudos for your own: it looks really good! My B&W drawings were meant as a simple way to encourage the QA team; giving them recognition is an unexpected, but still warmly welcome, surprise. Kudos for everything, and see you next time, in order to work together for possibilities like Crash Bash, Chocobo Racing, and everything else that made Playstation’s glory back in the day!

– AlexPSN89

14

Any chance of Crash Bash?

I would also like to know when the Scott Pilgrim Online DLC will be released please? Any news on this Chris?

15.1

As above I have no news on this at the moment

EternalChaos72 19 December, 2012 @ 15:07
16

Why the hell is there no avatars??????

16.1

Sorry there were no avatars on the schedule for this week

17

Will EU ever get the Hitman Dlc bundle?

what happend to the Creature Crawler Dome DLC and Head Skins DLC pack for Borderlands 2? NA store got it last week. We were ment to too

Hi, will there be any christmas sales on PSP/Vita games? The Festive sale has 2 Tomb Raider ps1 titles as only Vita offerings.

20

Is there any chance there will be some Vita stuff on sale soon? I have a few euro’s left but cant find anything to spend it on..

20.1

I’m afraid that it is more likely that VITA stuff will go on sale in the new year now

21

The picture for Munch’s Oddyee is wrong. Also, on the store it says the price is £7.29 with a Plus discount to £5.49. Is this an unannounced sale price?

21.1

Chris should be able to confirm what’s happening here – he’ll be along later this afternoon.

21.2

right – there is indeed a 25% Plus discount on this title. Sorry for not putting that in the main post – I’m updating it now.

22

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD on PS Vita….FINALLY! I loved that game back when i had an Xbox and have been waiting for it to be on the Vita for ages! My train journeys are becoming the highlight of my day with all the cool games coming to the Vita!

Hey Chris,

No discount for Little Big Planet Vita, Dyad or Catherine like in US Store?

Oh Why? Where are discounts?

23.1

We can’t always align with the US unfortunately. But I have been working on discounts for these three titles. Leave it with me.

Why is Bully called Canis Canem Edit? Is it the regular version or censored?

24.1

Regular version – I think it just has different titles in different regions.

25

Glad to finally have Munchs Oddysee on the store, the price looks wrong through – on the oddworld site they are saying it will be £7.99??

thanks

Any chance of getting Asura’s Wrath for a future IGC?

athanasios_osfp 19 December, 2012 @ 15:11
27

Hi Chris,

Any chance for discounts in previous call of duty dlcs?

27.1

It is extremely difficult to secure discounts on anything within the COD franchises but leave it with us we are always trying

Weren’t we supposed to receive an update within this post, on what the further additions are to the Festive SALE?

29

Any plans to release I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport Hero Haneda(psp) in European ps store?

Good update, downloading Stranger’s Wrath as i post this.

Unfortunately, i’m unable to be happy with what i have now and therefore i’m compelled to ask: any news on Retro City Rampage or when the Youtube App will be made available on Portugal?

Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 16:03
30.1

We hope you enjoy Stranger on VITA we had a blast making it :)

Great update, thanks!

Btw, Papo & Yo soundtrack was supposed to be available today? :(

You missed Flying Hamster HD off for Vita (it’s on the store now) and Escape Vektor & Oddworld both have PS+ discounts as well ;)

32.1

Sorry Flying Hamster HD was a late addition as I needed to confirm pricing, good spot though!

33

still no Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus :(

any idea when the discount price for King of Fighter will kick in, it was listed last week but the discount never happened

Hey

Any chance of a list of all the PS plus content there has ever been sometime? There’s nothing like it at all on the internet.

Cheers, keep up the great work

34.1

If you look in the Plus thread I think a resourceful chap has put one together…

35

Yay, Munch’s Oddysee Hd and Red Dead Revolver for me. I can’t wait. Good update.

Also, there’s a flurry of discounts on the US store, any chance of getting the same deals here on EU?

@ marach_liz

Canis Canem Edit is the PAL name. They didn’t want it to be called Bully with the game featuring schoolkids, due to the sheer amount of bullying that goes on in schools nowadays!

Hi Chris.

I was just wondering when exactly will the blog post go live that details the full listing of Christmas deals that we can look forward to throughout the sale?

38.1

The 12 deals of Xmas goes live every two days. The festive sale will be updated within this post very soon

39

Hello, is there any chance that Extermination originally for ps2 will show up on ps2 classics on the store? Because I would love to play it.

40

Hi Chris, nice to see you around today :P

First of all let me say thanks to the team for the Plus secured games for January :)

Secondly, a good game update for today. I understand that you’ll update the post on Friday to add whatever goes live then, right?

Hi Chris, nice update. :)

However there are some stuff missing and have for some reason disappeared from the Store like:

the Uncharted 2 avatars, they are not there when you go to Uncharted 2, you only see add-ons and videos. But the Uncharted 3 avatars are there when you go to or search for Uncharted 3.

also two PSone classics have disappeared from the Store, and those are Disney’s Tarzan and Future Cop: LAPD.

Would you try and talk to the Store team and get these items back in there? :)

41.1

Sure thing, I will pass this back to them

hey Chris,

umm, weren’t we suppopsed to get an update on the festive sales with a list containing all the new sales that would be added today??

42.1

Coming soon………..

43

I thought we were going to see additions to the sale today. According the festival sale post

“Below are details of the initial deals – if you can’t find anything that takes your fancy we will be looking to add more items to the sale on the 19th December so keep checking the blog for updates”

I mean where are the Vita/PSP/PSOne games? Ok there are two tomb raider games but come on. This is a very poor show for those of us that only have a Vita. First we get left out of the 12 deals of christmas because you lot say there are no games and now this?

Mortal kombat is still 39.99 :( where is the plus version???

Asking again, where are these discounts that US Store gets:

Holiday Essentials Sale – Catherine (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Counter Strike Global Offensive (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Dyad (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Escape Plan (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – I am Alive (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – LittleBigPlanet 2 (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – LittleBigPlanet (Vita)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Magic: The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – NHL 13 (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Rayman Origins (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Rayman Origins (Vita)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Resident Evil 4 (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Retro/Grade (PS3)
Holiday Essentials Sale – Street Fighter: Third Strike Online Edition (PS3)

45.1

US Store and EU Store are separate entities run by separate teams in separate continents – we run different sales. On top of the 12 Deals of Christmas promotion, EU has also has the ongoing Festive Sale – which will have more content added later this week.

Thanks for the reply @Catkiller1

Hi Fred/Chris/Jarad/Santa.

Regarding the additional deals going live in the ‘next few days’ is there any chance of letting us know what they will be today? Please?

I’ll let you have a mince pie and a bit of brandy if you do…

47.1

The new content should go live on Friday, I believe. Chris will be able to confirm shortly, and may be able to tease a few offers.

Can we please have Vita compatibility re-enabled for Resident Evil 2?

There wasn’t actually anything wrong with it. It was incorrectly reported as bugged, as none of you seemed to know that you hold your finger on the touchscreen to bring up the menu to change discs.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A4YGwkiCMAI45qh.png

@kc484 – If you are referring to the plus update re. Mortal Kombat I think it says it goes live around the 2nd Jan.

@ TwinBlade04 @ Catkiller1 Ubisoft has told Gamefaq that the dlc has been cancelled, its on their site. Dont know why they bothered adding trophies.

51

Hi, is there any chance that Resident Evil 4 will be reduced in price. Reason being my brother want’s to buy it, but not at £15.99.

I think most people out there are waiting for a price drop on Resident Evil 4.

supersmith2500 19 December, 2012 @ 15:18
52

@Catkiller1:
And what’s even odd, they didn’t change the name on the Wii version which is real odd.

I’m definitely picking the Rage dlc and maybe even gravity rush dlc as well.

Hey Chris,

Will dunwall city trials be available in Russia some time later or not? I’m a little bit confused with situation=\

54.1

the publisher has confirmed that this will not be available in Russia at a later stage, sorry

@marach_liz

‘edit’ means ‘eat’. The phrase ‘canis canem edit’ means ‘dog eat dog’. :)

was ready to get ecapevector and jetpack joyride for vita, but guess what… not avail in Norway.. quite disappointed the developers do not want their money from everyone… looks like its getting bigger and bigger problem latly disappointing enough when it should had been the other way around nowadays with better and better internet it should be easier to get the games out for everyone..

mortal kombat and knytt underground for me this week also looking forward to the Rage DLC must be the only person who actually enjoyed this game

@ supersmith2500

I think they kept the original name on the Wii due to the bullying being less reported.

What I mean is, at the time school bullying was heavily reported within the various news channels & like anything, it dies down after several weeks.

59

when does munch come in Belgium??? today, tomorrow or the 21st???

Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 16:04
59.1

Hi,
As Belgium requires titles to be in French, it’s not out there until January I’m afraid. But will be a fully localised version in French.

60

Chris
Is Knytt Underground a new game we’re getting free in ps+ this week? I’m a bit confused cos you wrote it in ‘Leaving PS Plus:’ on 23rd Jan. Also it wasn’t listed in the ‘Joining PS Plus:’ section. It also isn’t on store either. Did you forget to type that game into your other post?

60.1

Knytt Underground is part of PS Plus in the VITA section from 21st December until 23rd January. As a little bonus we have also made it available for PS3 from 21st December until February 13th

@ Lejenko

Nope…..I enjoyed it too ;)

I’m thinking of purchasing it again, just to play the Scorchers DLC!

Dilemma time now, Bully (I refuse to call it the stupid Daily Mail friendly name!), Red Dead, the Journey/Swan bundle, or wait and see if/when the festive sale is updated?! :)

Anybody at SCEE or CAPCOM already woke up to the fact that RESIDENT EVIL 2 works fine? WAKE UP!!!!! Put the game i paid for back in the store. LISTEN FOR ONCE TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!!!! THE GAME WORKS!!!!

64

The Last of us single player demo for christmas day.
Now that would be brilliant.

64.1

wouldn’t it just!

AussieOutsider 19 December, 2012 @ 15:24
65

So What Was the PS+ Replacement for Mortal Kombat for Australia and Germany? Is it PSP Lego Batman like it’s been speculated?

if that is the case, not really a fair swap given that its a multi year old previous console game vs. a year old vita title…

To anyone with a US Account, AUDITORIUM HD is $1.99 & Counterstrike is $10.49….BARGAIN!

67

The price for oddworld munch oddysee is wrong it supposed to be €8.99 not €12.99 care to explained chris?

67.1

The price should be updated now

Nice update :)
Also, Munch’s Oddysee HD image is the wrong one ;)

69

@AussieOutsider: It is LEGO Batman. It wasn’t speculated, Chris himself answered it on a Blog post.

@ tycho2

If you don’t own Unfinished Swan or Journey, then I would purchase the bundle at that price ;)

71

Hi Chris Howe

I have qusetion

Why Medal of Honor: Warfighter DLC not available in QATAR

71.1

I would assume that this is due to the violence within the game but I will need to check for you

Canis Canem Edit! I wasn’t expecting that. It’s one of the most Christmassy games I’ve ever played, so I’m deffo buying that. :)

Shame there’s still no RCR.. have the dev’s specified a release date yet?

72.1

Nope not yet, as soon as we know, we will tell you

“While I’m here, I just wanted to confirm that all Festive Sale deals advertised last week will go live between today and 21st December when the store update takes place. We’ll also have some additional deals going live in the next few days – stay tuned for details”

Just put the PSVita deals on this blog already :-)

Like USA got LBPV for PS+ for around 18 bucks and Escape Plan for 7,50 USD or something.

BRING IT ON! Can’t wait to buy those for over 50% discount

Some good PS2 Classics recently. Any chance you could get the following on the store?

Castlevania Lament of Innocence
Gradius V
Mark of Kri
Rogue Galaxy
War of the Monsters

People should buy Rapid Angel. Quality PSone title.

The_Last_Ninja 19 December, 2012 @ 15:30

No Retro City Rampage in Europe in 2012, Come On Man !!

Stop BS people, Brian Provinciano RCR creator claim everywhere that the game is in SCEE hands for certification process for months, but SCEE say the game is still underdevelopment.

Here is the facts:
The game was release on US PSN and STEAM worldwide on October 8th
=> Nothing on EU PSN for Weeks no news from community manager.

Then SCEE pretended to be waiting for the BIG Patch 6 to release the game, patch 6 went live on Nov 15th
=> And yet still nothing on EU PSN, and community managers telling the game is not finished yet.
I wrote somewhere that EU PSN forums will not get RCR in 2012, now I tell you that EU PSN won t get RCR at all because of SCEE lazyness.

TLN

So, any news on Ragnarok odyssey? it’s going to be delayed, isn’t it

76.1

I’ve not heard anythign new from the publisher on that one I’m afraid. It’s due early next year I believe.

Might it be possible to have a sale on Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls in the coming year? Please. :P

The_Last_Ninja 19 December, 2012 @ 15:33
78

Chris, is there gonna be an Oddworld discount like you mentioned in prevous PSN+ news?

TLN

78.1

Yes these are on sale now for Plus members

Why Dishonored Dunwall City Trials is still not available in Poland?

79.1

The pubisher has confirmed that this piece of DLC will not be made available in Poland

and praise Konami/Sony for making Castlevania Symphony of the Night available for Vita :D

Any news on star wars battlefront renegade squadron coming to ps3 vita?

Mortal Kombat for Vita is not showing as Plus content for me, has it gone live yet? Has anyone played the LBP2 dlc for Vita, is it any good? May give that and Dunwall Trials a go i think, still holding out for RCR!

Why I dont see:
Knytt Underground and Mortal Kombat for PS+ 100% discount
And europe get a demo vikings attack? US got it.
I prefered to test demo version and soon buy it

84

Just got PSAS yesterday and now Mortal Kombat Vita all in time for my flight home…I can already hear the 90’s techno music in my head, MORTAL KOMMBATTTT!!!

chuck_norris_BA 19 December, 2012 @ 15:39
85

Aha, finally counter-strike global offensive! …oh wait

86

There are also some Plus discounts listed on the Vita store that don’t show up in the PS3 store, for Foosball 2012, Stranger’s Wrath, and escapeVektor.

@fred

what a joke no sales unlike SCEA that has so many sales it could fill up 5 pages on this stupid blog i guess dokuro and ragnarok odyseey won’t be making a winter 2012 release sure thanks for you lazy efforts on making sure hardly anything came 2 the store this year. sure hope some off you guys get fired next year 2 make way for ppl who can actually do their job. offcourse jawad is on holiday with such a horrible last store update off the year i’d be ashamed myself.

No CS:GO with no explanation why if valve cancelled it just say so.
No retro cirty rampage and with no release date while jawad said they would get a blog soon with their release date.
No youtube app for europe not suprised you guys coulden’t even get the vidstore 2 other countries back in 2009.
No ragnarok odyssey and dokuro cause off your horribly slow Q&A
cause gungho entertainment alrdy said it’s at sony.
horrible vita prices uncharted and resistance were 26 bucks with a starting price off 25 while we have 2 pay...

88.1

You mean a Cross-Buy title? no, but there is a discount for double-dippers that will come into play AFTER the current PS+ discount has concluded.

89

the Tutle is wrong: Store update 19th and 21st December 2012
right is this: Store update 19th and 26th December 2012

Still no Skyrim dlcs. i look forward to playing them next year :)

Mortal Kombat goes free for PS+ today, right?

COUNTER STRIKE GLOBAL OFFENSIVE – PS3 (now: $10.49 original price: $14.99)

the damn game isen’t even out here and it’s getting discounted in U.S that’s such a joke meaning there is no point for a SCEE store or team you can buy U.S and a whole lot cheaper and better.

i hope better stuf on 21 dec.
realy moast stupid Christmas ever in ps3 periode

no rpg = weak to Japanse console maker .
no ragnorack odysee out okt in usa
no ni no kuni
……

US Store and EU Store are separate entities run by separate teams in separate continents – we run different sales. On top of the 12 Deals of Christmas promotion, EU has also has the ongoing Festive Sale – which will have more content added later this week.

= biggest problem
1 store please : everybady enjoy same service level !!!!!

Hi Fred,
Any news on the missing WRC 3 Ps Vita free tracks DLC at the greek store? Why is it not there? I thought that the UK and GR store had the same content until now.

I wish PS2 games would work on vita!

@Keijisan90

blame SCEE the developer said it’s at sony they just waiting for it 2 be cleared than they can give a date.
like with so many publishers that submit content 2 SCEE yet they never seem 2 care improve their process, let alone care for their consumers.

I think you forgot to list Flying Hamster HD for psvita.

@ Certinty :
Mortal Kombat goes free for PS+ members January 2nd (according to this : http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2012/12/19/playstation-plus-your-january-content/ ). ;)

Where is Metro: Last Light?

Fred!

I Bought Uncharted: Fight for Fortune Complete Edition for Vita and it says it is Trial-version and tells me to buy full version. I thought that I did buy full version when I bought Complete Edition.

And now when I access Store from Vita, Store doesn’t even know that I did buy Complete Edition. I can find it in my download list tho.

What is going on???

100.1

You will need to contact customer services regarding this issue:

Still waiting for free mortal kombat but its not live yet. Weird coz some other store items has been updated but not free game instant collection

@CrazyFreak_KI (#89) It’s correct actually. There will be no store update on the 26th.

@monoliet (#93) How longer are you guys going to keep on crying because of this? That will never happen. There are many reasons why, Google them.

Holy ****! Flying Hamster HD for Vita! The best mini in the history in full Vita res – that just made my day :D

Why there is no mention of it in the post I have no idea…

ps. i not buy COUNTER STRIKE GLOBAL OFFENSIVE on ps3
already go somwere else to play game .
but i find u very very bad salesmen ,never never seen howh u are dealing whith this problem = give u self al c4 en go looking other work .
neaver heard of statuus update ?????

Hey Chris, any news on Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus?

k1ll1ng5pr33-NL

no problem i wil go ms. next gen
already fact .

Actually jan update is for mortal kombat ps3 not vita. Vita mk is leaving 16 jan but should have been out today

@k1ll1ng5pr33-NL

if 1 store will never happen they might as well improve the service’s yet they keep lacking everything no good sales,no new content,no old content basicly the store here in europe is so useless you hardly would buy anything cause everything is out off date it’s like years behind U.S and with the army off lies SCEE keeps feeding us you should know why ppl are getting sick off SCEE and they whole policy.

109

hi, for bully is it the graphicly improved version release on Xbox 360 or is it a port of the PS2 game ?
cos before i buy it want to know where to buy ^^
thanks.

110

why has the plus free game of mortal kombat for vita not shown up on the store?

Alexiel-FR
port of the PS2 game

It’s the Vita version of MK we’re waiting for today not the PS3 version which is out next month on ps+

Catherine discount please!!!

oggy78

lol , them want u ps+ to buy first ful price .
i buy very littel now on psn = why buy if u get later free ?

@Tazman – that January 2nd is for Mortal Kombat PS3, not Vita.

Vita version “should” be live today.

HELLO!!!! CAN YOU ANSWER PLEASE!!!! RESIDENT EVIL 2 WORKS!!!!
The guy who complained about it and why the game was pulled from the store admitted he made a mistake. It works when you hold your finger on the screen so you can change discs.

click on Munch’s Odysee but get the error “this content cannot be accessed at this time”???

118

Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD (Trial available)
Price: £7.29/€8.99 (additional 25% off for Plus members)
PEGI: 12
Availability: Not available in France, Germany, Spain or Italy.

WHY ???? why is it unavailable in some countries ??? why and when will it be release there ?

Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 17:19
118.1

I’ve just replied about this below.

It will be out in January 2013, so only a few weeks from now.

119

Thanks for releasing tomba 1 and 2 on the vita store, but why’d you have to double the price? Do you hate vita owners or are you just trying to sink the vita faster? What is wrong with you all?

Hi,
As Belgium requires titles to be in French, it’s not out there until January I’m afraid. But will be a fully localised version in French.

u have 1 smal problem
the dutch from Netherlands + Flemish of Belgium need English !!!!!
only kidy games need corect traselation .
no need to wait other language so usa ore uk laguage = fine to use .
i hate french reading + lisening in films / games like lots of flemish + visa versa .

france + walonie other part of belgium need french

“You mean a Cross-Buy title? no, but there is a discount for double-dippers that will come into play AFTER the current PS+ discount has concluded.”

Hi Stewart, if you are still here, I’m a fan of the Oddworld games and purchased Strangers Wrath before it was later added to the IGC. I’m a potential ‘double-dipper’ for the Vita version but am now not sure to purchase with the current Plus discount or wait for the unknown ‘double-dipper’ discount…

Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 17:20
121.1

The double dipper discount is the same as the PS+ discount, IE 25% but as both games are currently 25% discount on PS+, when the PS+ discount is complete, it will be a single 25% discount for the version you don’t currently own yet.

IE no difference if you already own one version.

Am I blind or where are those further sales that Fred promised last week? Or are those * marked delayed sales everything that follows?

122.1

Sorry G – we’ll update you on the extra offers tomorrow. Planned discounts include savings on Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Saints Row 2, Worms, Il2 Sturmovik, Ridge Racer 7, Sniper Elite V2 and various other bits and bobs.

Is this a good place to post to ask for influence in getting PSone Classic titles? I’d really love a working version of Diablo on my Vita!

124

why Munch Oddysey is not released in France, Germany , Spain ???
can you explain why and when it will be released …??

GOD why PSN is so complicated…

only kidy games need corect traselation

*snicker*
:)

MK Vita is still not free for Plus members, please fix.

Just Knytt Underground and Snowman Dynamic Theme for me this week.

@ Fred, please tell me why this http://goo.gl/dfZan never amounted to anything.

almighty-slayer 19 December, 2012 @ 16:31
128

What happened to Mortal Kombat? According to your original PS+ post, MK should be free today and then Knytt on Friday.

Golwar 125

i mean i + others who understend English not need to wait on contry who want everiting in their language .

peopel who adapt need no punichment = howh ith feels today whith sony .
i not need waiting french spanish italian german …. translation .
we need to wait to others not wanting adepting them self = selfish .

if u want translation fine = wait longer ;)

I want to play Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins on my Vita but I can’t because it’s not on the eu psn store… Shame really because it is on the US one.

I guess you guys just don’t care.

Can someone fix mk for vita waiting for itt its supposed. To be free for ps plus members today

132

The “Motorstorm RC Complete Edition” contains the “Pro-AM” and “Carnival” DLC?

Thanks ^^

132.1

Yes it does contain both of these DLC packs

@monoliet

I meant that you are probably the last person who should mention the words “correct translation”. Pure irony in this constellation. ;)

Still no free MK in russian PS Vita store. Other contet already available.

135

Don’t wanna jump on the bandwagon but am looking forward to MK Vita and have cleared space for it, just want to know if its still coming or if there’s perhaps a delay with the content? I only ask because everything else n the store has in fact been updated.

0o lol , i mean corect language to shilderen ( lots stil not understend English ) jes i now lots of mistakes in mi tekst :)
i spek very wel + understend very wel , tekst = not in mi own language – french ore englisch . ( nobady = perfect ;) )

What’s happened to MK Vita? Still £34.99? :S

0o lol , i mean corect language to shilderen ( lots stil not understend English ) jes i now lots of mistakes in mi tekst

i speak + understen very wel English/frensh/dutch
but write in al 3 = desaster ( no one = perfect )

delete other tekst moderator = same but stil under : Your comment is awaiting moderation.

Looks like someone forgot to put MK for free in the PS+ category then…

When will Mortal Kombat arrive for Vita? It’s still in the store for €39,99…

Posted on 19 December, 2012 at 2:37 pm by Chris Howe
It will be available when the store updates later today

still waiting

” Oddworld Inhabitants : Munch comes to France/Germany/Italy & Spain in January.
il y a 4 heures · J’aime

Thanks PSN for such perfect communication with your players from little unknown countries like france , germany …

i will not say what i really think of sony politic here .. but trust me , i have an opinion…

i can now put my ps3 to sleep for some month as i’m again dissapointed so much by sony .

Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 17:18
141.1

This decision has nothing to do with Sony, it’s our decision.

We did not want to get the language versions tested by Sony until the English versions were approved, as any issues would mean EVERY version would need to be re-submitted for testing.

We decided to release the English version as soon as it was approved and then get the langauges done.

I’m sorry this isn’t seen as favourable by you, but it’s a business decision we made on our own, without Sony’s involvement.

Come on guys, add the info about Flying Hamster HD. People need to see this! It’s dirt cheap too.

143

why dont u tell us why we dont have cs go yet

“PlayStation Plus
Mortal Kombat (PS Vita) – 100% discount
Knytt Underground – 100% discount”

I know Knytt is coming 21st, but wasn’t MK coming today?

It is still charging me 39,99 Euro in store… When will it be downloadable for PS+ for free?

145

still no mk on the store will we be getting it this week? was looking forward to it all month besides that nice content this week. though on a small note could we get more demos for the vita recently bought a 40eu game that isnt really my thing:/ cheers

No update on MK? Still can’t see it on the store

waiting for MK too

still waiting for MK too :(

Now its a triple post :)

is MK the only thing thats still to come out? be patient, store usually updates at 5, we have had months where its been 9 o clock till they add the PS+ stuff (recently, due to the store being awful)

Good for you L3n1n.

PSN is frozen on my PS3, can’t use buttons or anything, just quit works.

And just like that…. it decides to work after some hours.

Dog.

Dog=Doh

I hate spelling predictions.

Any chance to get a price drop for the Gravity Rush DLCs?

And again, it´s too bad @ Retro City Rampage. For Weeks the same disaster…!

So now Mortal Kombat is coming tomorrow? That sucks! Only SCEE!

Any chance of getting some discounts on PSP Persona games?

160

I don’t know, if you guys know it or not, but Mortal Kombat Vita is not available on the Vita store for free, and this is the case for the PS3 store too (at the Vita section). The update went live, so something might have happened… again… I don’t know who is responsible for the store, but I would get rid off him as soon as possible, he is making a [DELETED] job. Please look into it.

Hi guys,
apologies for the hold up, this content will go live on December 21st (Friday). It was actually meant to be later but we have brought it forward to get it to you by Xmas.

this sucks even more… it was supposed to come today but he said was meant to be later but bringing it for xmas for us… as if he is doing us a favor.. the actual deadline was not met… i would be totally okay if they dated the game to be released some later date in the first place but it was supposed to come today . was soo hyped to play for this game today. thx for trolling us

162

What day this week does Mortal Kombat Vita become free here in the united kingdom?

no vita sales until the new year? ho ho ho.

thanks a lot chris. great effort.

merry christmas.

164

Hey Stewart!
You rock!
Merry Christmas :)

165

Do wonder if I get a response anytime..

Cant you guys play nice whis NIS and get the games and DLC here? or atleast let UK accounts gift those games to us in the not avavible countries?

Is the NIS not getting to release DLC in Scandinavia still secret?
Still not seeing Disgaea 3 on the Vita..
Or is it that the SCEE is stupid enough to demand native language descriptions on dlc when most countries in EU have a rather good grasp of english.

(Pretty sure its been close to confirmed that this is the issue)

Next point, when will the following PSP games be avavible on the Store? The ones whit (VITA) is not vita compatible. Sideloading thru PS3 do not make a game vita compatible in this list.
Final Fantasy Crisis Core
Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
Invizimals
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleap
PoPoLoCrois
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Thrillville
Valkyria Chronicles 2 (Not Vita Compatible)
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth

Third:
Cross Region Gifting. WHEN?

Is Tales of Eternia a possibility as a PSOne Classic release?

Pff. Where is mk for vita? And munch’s oddysee i only see the demo and when i click on it it doesn’t work.

Guys, just FYI, you promised us Mortal Kombat on the 19th, both in the Plus post back in November, and in this very post. Now it turns out that it’s actually due tomorrow, you should be giving us more notification than a tweet from a non-official Twitter account. If Fardeenah hadn’t posted it here (effectively doing your own jobs for you), how were we supposed to know?

Probably people will still miss that comment, because there’ll shortly be over 200 comments here and it’ll just be one of them. That means people will check and recheck the Store on a regular basis looking for a game that they were promised that in fact will not appear today. Wasting their time, and your bandwidth, for the lack of proper communication.

169

@Chris it would be life saver if you guys are more active on Facebook!If u can link all deals from Facebook thats much easier way to get updated!Btw doing a great job on deals!I thank everyone involved in the PS Plus Program and Merry Christmas to all the Playstation blog Staff and members alike!!:)

well said EoinOL… FYI they replied abt MK in another post…
