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!


@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.

Chocobo115 19 December, 2012 @ 3:04 pm   3

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????

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   5

Will we see Retro City Rampage next week?

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:27 pm    

    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 @ 3:05 pm   6

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 @ 4:01 pm    

    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…

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 3:30 pm    

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

AlexPSN89 19 December, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   10

@ 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!!!??

AlexPSN89 19 December, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   12

@ 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)

AlexPSN89 19 December, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   13

@ 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

Mattrapid441 19 December, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   14

Any chance of Crash Bash?

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:06 pm   15

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

EternalChaos72 19 December, 2012 @ 3:07 pm   16

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

teh__pwnerer 19 December, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   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.

RoaringMdog18 19 December, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   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..

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:00 pm    

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

A_Nonny_Moose 19 December, 2012 @ 3:08 pm   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?

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:28 pm    

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

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:49 pm    

    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.

the-draconian 19 December, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   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?

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:02 pm    

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

marach_liz 19 December, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   24

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

ironmonkey88 19 December, 2012 @ 3:10 pm   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??


Silent_Gig 19 December, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   26

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

athanasios_osfp 19 December, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   27

Hi Chris,

Any chance for discounts in previous call of duty dlcs?

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:03 pm    

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

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:11 pm   28

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

zaqair123456 19 December, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   29

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

AlucardDHK 19 December, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   30

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?

Guillemots 19 December, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   31

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 😉

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:05 pm    

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



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

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:29 pm    

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

Stoopid_Snot 19 December, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   34

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

MissDreamer 19 December, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   35

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

AlucardDHK 19 December, 2012 @ 3:12 pm   36

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

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:13 pm   37

@ 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?

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:07 pm    

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

Strangeheaven 19 December, 2012 @ 3:13 pm   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.

Nightmare966 19 December, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   40

Hi Chris, nice to see you around today 😛

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? 🙂

Jestersoil 19 December, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   42

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??

bidbaldwolf86 19 December, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   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)

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:31 pm    

    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.

marach_liz 19 December, 2012 @ 3:16 pm   46

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…

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:32 pm    

    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.


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

Crouger86 19 December, 2012 @ 3:18 pm   50

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

Strangeheaven 19 December, 2012 @ 3:18 pm   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 @ 3:18 pm   52

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

Mcbeanstr 19 December, 2012 @ 3:19 pm   53

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=\

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 5:01 pm    

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


‘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

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:22 pm   58

@ 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.

MRdeath1996 19 December, 2012 @ 3:22 pm   59

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

    Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 4:04 pm    

    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.

dark_angel69 19 December, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   60

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?

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:12 pm    

    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

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   61

@ 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!!!!

Strangeheaven 19 December, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   64

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

AussieOutsider 19 December, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   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…

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:26 pm   66

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

FrostScythe1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   67

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


Nice update 🙂
Also, Munch’s Oddysee HD image is the wrong one 😉

Nightmare966 19 December, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   69

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

Catkiller1 19 December, 2012 @ 3:27 pm   70

@ tycho2

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

SERGEANT-Q6R 19 December, 2012 @ 3:28 pm   71

Hi Chris Howe

I have qusetion

Why Medal of Honor: Warfighter DLC not available in QATAR

    Chris Howe 19 December, 2012 @ 5:13 pm    

    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?


“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

Suzzopher 19 December, 2012 @ 3:29 pm   74

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 @ 3:30 pm   75

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.


Keijisan90 19 December, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   76

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

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 3:35 pm    

    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. 😛

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


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

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 5:02 pm    

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

Noisepurge 19 December, 2012 @ 3:33 pm   80

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


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!

Uzumaki174 19 December, 2012 @ 3:36 pm   83

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

willbillbill 19 December, 2012 @ 3:37 pm   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 @ 3:39 pm   85

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

A_Nonny_Moose 19 December, 2012 @ 3:39 pm   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.


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 50.

MrChilliBeer 19 December, 2012 @ 3:44 pm   88

Is Strangers Wrath a cross platform purchase?

    Stewart Gilray 19 December, 2012 @ 4:05 pm    

    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.

CrazyFreak_KI 19 December, 2012 @ 3:44 pm   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
why i reed same + lisen like usa ????
stil spam on mi ps3 realy not making Christmas better on mi console

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 !!!!!

Panos_GRE 19 December, 2012 @ 3:50 pm   94

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.

KillaT2501 19 December, 2012 @ 3:50 pm   95

I wish PS2 games would work on vita!


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.

Tazman-Baaring 19 December, 2012 @ 3:52 pm   98

@ Certinty :
Mortal Kombat goes free for PS+ members January 2nd (according to this : ). 😉

CreditDue 19 December, 2012 @ 3:52 pm   99

Where is Metro: Last Light?



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???

Fardeenah 19 December, 2012 @ 3:53 pm   101

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

k1ll1ng5pr33-NL 19 December, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   102

@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.

MaxiM_82 19 December, 2012 @ 3:55 pm   103

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

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

Fardeenah 19 December, 2012 @ 3:56 pm   107

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


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.

Alexiel-FR 19 December, 2012 @ 4:02 pm   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 ^^

hans832009 19 December, 2012 @ 4:04 pm   110

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

monoliet 19 December, 2012 @ 4:05 pm   111

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+

stathmos 19 December, 2012 @ 4:07 pm   113

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

BluSpykz 19 December, 2012 @ 4:09 pm   115

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

Vita version “should” be live today.


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.

webbiies 19 December, 2012 @ 4:12 pm   117

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

Alexiel-FR 19 December, 2012 @ 4:14 pm   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 @ 5:19 pm    

    I’ve just replied about this below.

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

Aussieanima67 19 December, 2012 @ 4:17 pm   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?

monoliet 19 December, 2012 @ 4:18 pm   120

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 @ 5:20 pm    

    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?

    Fred Dutton 19 December, 2012 @ 5:27 pm    

    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.

Fernestar 19 December, 2012 @ 4:26 pm   123

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!

Alexiel-FR 19 December, 2012 @ 4:26 pm   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


supersmith2500 19 December, 2012 @ 4:27 pm   126

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

@ Fred, please tell me why this never amounted to anything.

almighty-slayer 19 December, 2012 @ 4:31 pm   128

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

SixelAlexiS 19 December, 2012 @ 4:35 pm   132

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

Thanks ^^


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.

ashton_philip 19 December, 2012 @ 4:39 pm   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.

monoliet 19 December, 2012 @ 4:39 pm   136

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

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

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 @ 5:18 pm    

    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.

MaxiM_82 19 December, 2012 @ 5:01 pm   142

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

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

XnoobsquadX 19 December, 2012 @ 5:04 pm   145

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.

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

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
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleap
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Valkyria Chronicles 2 (Not Vita Compatible)
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth

Cross Region Gifting. WHEN?

OuendanCyrus 19 December, 2012 @ 5:45 pm   166

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.

death_mamba 19 December, 2012 @ 5:51 pm   169

Not a great deal of love for the vita 🙁

with hardly any real reply’s shows you how much they don’t care about consumers. well seems ps4 will be sony last console with hardly any content getting delivered ppl might as wel go with steambox or xbox.

icedude666 19 December, 2012 @ 6:26 pm   180

Really dissapointed in the fact Mortal Kombat and Knytt Underground for PS Vita are still due to release. I kept on refreshing and refreshing. You should only update on wednesdays, so i’m not mentally outraged by the fact i have to wait longer :D. Biggest first world problem I’ve ever experienced.

LiquidSolid 19 December, 2012 @ 6:28 pm   181

Munch’s Oddysee isn’t on the NZ PSN. Why?

Also, what’s the point of labelling these posts “Heads-up” anymore? The entire point of that was that the update posts would be put up like 3-5 hours before the actual update but now, the posts don’t get posted until after the store is already updated? It makes no sense.

One last thing, are you guys ever going to get around to making sure all content shows up in all stores? Cause right now, they’re pretty inconsistent. The PS3 store doesn’t have a number of PSP games that appear on the Media Go store, the web store doesn’t have a ton of stuff that’s on the other stores (including Unfinished Swan) and so on. Do you guys even check this?

Agreed with the post above either get ur act together and dont blatantly lie. U will lose my support if this continues into the next year im fed up with deadlines not being met the utter lack of info on CS and not to mention the late sinemore debackle. i pour little over a thousand bucks a year into scee and games in the store and i expect damn quality service GET IT TOGETHER!

violentcop6 19 December, 2012 @ 6:48 pm   185

BTW thanks again for Catlevania SOTN and all the great PS+ content!

So…no trophies on Munch’s Oddysee?


Hi Chris,
After great discount for Tony Hawk HD,
will there be any discount for DLC?


I know I shall be repeating what alot of people have already said, but I just thought if I added my annoyance to the growing number on this blog, then maybe, just maybe SCEE might just notice and ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THE COMPLAINTS OF THEIR CUSTOMERS.

To suggest that a PS+ game that was advertised weeks ago as being released TODAY, is now being brought forward before xmas, is a damn right cheek! It is NOT being brought forward, the word you are looking for is DELAYED.

Now, I don’t use Facebook or twitter, but I do use this blog, and if it wasn’t for the other helpful users doing SCEE’s job, I would have been unaware of this debacle, so thanks to them and no thanks to SCEE.

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.

I don’t think that is about MK for the Vita…..

hersenschimmel 19 December, 2012 @ 6:52 pm   190

So what’s the deal with Munch not being available in Belgium? It clearly says “not in France, Germany, Spain or Italy”. And I don’t want any localized content, I’ll stick with english thank you very much. At least give me the choice. To hell with dubbed content. Besides, why does everybody thinks that when you’re from Belgium your first language is french?

Unicronic 19 December, 2012 @ 6:54 pm   191

Wow a delay on a game scheduled and publicized for today.

Honesty used to be the best policy but I guess that was then.



If that post from Chris Hows is not about MK on the Vita, then what is it about, or what do you think it is about?

Jacko19_83 19 December, 2012 @ 6:59 pm   193

I feel sorry for you guys that just own a PS3, the service is shocking. CS:GO is uncontrollable on Xbox so SCEE are probably doing you guys a favour anyways 🙂

salvogdaze 19 December, 2012 @ 6:59 pm   194

@fozza73 it’s about some titles on the festive sale, no?

antichristreborn 19 December, 2012 @ 7:01 pm   195


I don’t know, but everyone appears to be jumping to conclusions.
All i’m saying is until there is some sort of offcial statement about it on here i will continue to wait. 😀

BasNederland 19 December, 2012 @ 7:01 pm   196

When will the three tracks in F1 Race Stars be released as a DLC?

ashton_philip 19 December, 2012 @ 7:03 pm   197

@salvogdaze @antichristreborn that’s what I thought it was about as well although I do still think MK Vita will be released tomorrow rather than today as promised was excited to play but got work to do anyway!

MRdeath1996 19 December, 2012 @ 7:15 pm   198

We in Antwerp need the english version will that be out the 21st



I appreciate what your saying, and admire your patience. But, ‘official statement’, from SCEE? I think you could be waiting quite a while, and this I think perfectly illustrates, everything thats wrong about SCEE and this blog. Hardly any details or info passed onto the users, and when there is, it is often wrong, leading to confusion and frustration within their number one priority…..their customers.

But hey, thanks for the update, but now thanks to SCEE, I’m none the wiser. And of course none of us will be here on friday to play MK or any other game for that matter, as its the end of the world remember!

cowbanana 19 December, 2012 @ 7:28 pm   200

So, SCEE screws up another store update and Mortal Kombat (Vita) isn’t available to PS+ subscribers. I’m kind of expecting a screw up on each and every store update now, so it’s really no surprise… *roll eyes*

On a positive note, I am really, really enjoying Stranger’s Wrath HD on my Vita (It is a new game to me, since I never got around to playing the original. The game looks pretty good and is native resolution. This little gem looks so much better than Burning Skies, with better models and textures as well as an overall much crisper image. I’m glad I only played the demo of Burning Skies – an embarrassing effort from Sony. Poor Resistance deserved better.

Kudos to J.A.W. for making Stranger look and play this well on the Vita.

mman1235 19 December, 2012 @ 7:30 pm   201

hey Knytt underground doesn’t seem to be anywhere in the Isrealian store 🙁
I cant even find it when searching.

can anyone in the managment of the store’s fix this?

stevekimmy 19 December, 2012 @ 7:34 pm   202

I would like to see WRC4 and WRC5 in the PS2-games for PS3

aboood619 19 December, 2012 @ 7:37 pm   203

Can you please post what games will be on sale on the 21st? This’ll at least help some consumers plan their purchases.
…and I REALLY want to know what’s in store so I can charge up my UK account with enough funds @_@.


@salvogdaze, @antichristreborn & anyone else who is interested.

I’ve just checked the posts and comments concerning PS+ content for January. The post Chris Howe left concerning a hold up of a title and subsequent bringing forward of said title before xmas, was in fact a reply to a question put by TVR-77.

That question WAS asking, why there was no release of Mortal Kombat on PS+ today.


SCEE messes up again, quel suprise.

Retro_Gamer_ 19 December, 2012 @ 7:45 pm   206



Coody-Baroody 19 December, 2012 @ 7:48 pm   207

@ Chris?Fred?Jawad or ANYOOONNNNNEEEE?????

Ive asked this question time and time and time again and still not received a single reply. But im going to ask again anyway….

Any chance you can get the Star Wars Force Unleashed 1 & Shift 2 Unleashed DLC packs in a sale at some point? Chris’ predecessor (cant remember who it was exactly) said that it was high on their ‘to get’ list when i first asked a while beack but ive heard nothing back on any further times ive asked.

Please can one of you reply?

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 4:14 pm    

    This information was not passed to me when I joined SCEE but I will look into it with the publishers

Sleepy_Buddha 19 December, 2012 @ 7:53 pm   208

I’ve been patiently waiting for the missing DLC packs for Dead or Alive 5 to be added but it seems unless someone mentions it no one will notice the problema and correct it.

The full set containing the China Pack, Special Set 3 and Formal Wear costume packs is still missing after 3 weeks. The new full Christmas set 1 is also missing, only full Christmas set 2 was put in the store.

Please check what’s going on with DOA 5 DLC as I’d like to buy these full set packs, especially the full set containing the China Pack, Special Set 3 and Formal Wear costume packs.

hfred123 19 December, 2012 @ 7:55 pm   209

Nice work Oddworld devs! This is the third time I end up buying Stranger’s Wrath (Xbox, PS3 and now Vita), and the first time I end up buying Munch’s Oddyssey. I have yet to complete Strangers Wrath though. I always get stuck by the sniper guys.

Is Munch’s Oddyssey coming to Vita as well? I’d love that.

Thanks again, love that you’re supporting the Vita!

    Stewart Gilray 20 December, 2012 @ 10:38 am    

    Thank you very much 🙂

    We will be releasing a VITA version of Munch’s Oddysee HD around February.

bennyrafal 19 December, 2012 @ 7:59 pm   210

Hi, Chris/Fred

As i wrote some opinions here (post number 133)

EscapeVektor – not in poland – to bad:/ any chances someone will change it?

spuddy15 19 December, 2012 @ 8:03 pm   211

think its just me but i would love to see the digimon games brought to the psone and ps2 classics really loved them games growing up

zerocool3397 19 December, 2012 @ 8:06 pm   212

So here is a couple of questions.

Why is it that Strangers Wrath isn’t like so many other games where you get Vita and PS3 additions equally compatible off the one copy?

I have the PS3 version and was very disappointed that I have to pay again to get the same game… which to be honest seems stupid and I cant find a compelling reason to buy the same game twice.

Also on the EU blog it says Mortal Kombat vita (not to be mistaken with the PS3 version free in Jan) will be free as of today and I know quite a few people have not been answered as to when today it is supposed to be. I don’t get why dates are put if its not gonna be stuck to.


Hello! When will syphon filter Logan’s shadow be available for vita in the Scandinavian region? I know it’s available in the us, aus and uk vita owners.


im sure i read ages ago that if oddworld/wrath hd were bought via ps3 they would be available free on the ps vita which was the reason i bought wrath first place. can this please be answered.


foxsevent 19 December, 2012 @ 8:43 pm   215

Nope Oddworlds Stranger Wraths is not a Cross-Buy title meaning you have to buy each copy separately.

And before you start blaming “Sony” it’s not their fault, it’s up to Developers if their title will be Cross-Buy.


Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD is not in the store,are there any other members that have got the same problem.


Hi Chris.

In your response to my post earlier (post 38), I would just like to say that I was referring to the Festival Sale, not the 12 Days of Xmas Deals, as I would really like to know (as would everyone else) when we are going to get the sale games for Christmas.

I own a PS2, PS3, PSP and Vita, so I would also like to know what Vita owners are going to get out of this sale, just as much as the PS3 owners. Even if you just reduced some DLC, such as the two track packs for MotorStorm RC (PS3 + Vita), Hustle Kings Snooker DLC (PS3 + Vita) and Super Stardust Delta DLC (Vita) as well as a reduction on the AR games for the Vita, this would at least be something for the Vita owners to get their teeth stuck into and value for money. The point is, individually they may already be fairly cheap, but add all of them up and combined, they aren’t, so reductions on the AR games and DLC that I have highlighted I am sure would be appreciated by all Vita owners, including myself and the DLC would also be purchased by PS3 owners too, so a win-win for everyone! They would be perfect additions to the Christmas themed sale, so please make it happen! 😉

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 4:19 pm    

    Unfortunately we won’t be able to provide much VITA love over the festive period but look out for a VITA sale in the new year

moartierd 19 December, 2012 @ 9:03 pm   218

So can anyone shed some light on the Australia / Germany not getting Mortal Kombat situation? The question seems to have gone without a conclusive answer since the PS+ content was announced in November. Please don’t let it be the rumoured PSP Lego Batman as that would be a completely unfair and inadequate replacement title and one that I’m sure not,any are interested in playing…

The69thFloor 19 December, 2012 @ 9:11 pm   219

@ 215

Yep, have the same problem! No Munch’s Oddysee in the Store and when you click on the add it just says that the content is not available. What’s the deal Sony???

jonnyalpha 19 December, 2012 @ 9:19 pm   220

I’ve bought Oddworld Munch on the PS3 but cant find the main file. It’s only downloaded the small unlock file for me so far, is the main file up yet?

Great week for PSN though, I’ve bought the two Oddworld games, the Cross Controller add on for LBP2 and EscapeVektor which looks really lovely on the Vita screen and much better than it did when it had it’s Wii release. The Vita version has over 100 more levels as well I think.

icemanff23 19 December, 2012 @ 9:26 pm   221

Hi Chris, there doesn’t seem to be a DLC for Dishonored available in Australia yet, is there a possible delay on PSN for it or will be it coming out later on for us?

supersmith2500 19 December, 2012 @ 9:28 pm   222

Did you download the trial too? You need to download it in order for it to work.

mcwildcard 19 December, 2012 @ 9:59 pm   223

Can you please advise whoever is responsible for the Festive Sale that King of Fighters XIII deal mentioned on the Festive Deals post is not showing in the store.
I did mention this in the Festive Deals thread, but it was ignored.

Seems like there’s a few problems with store updates in general atm, c’mon guys, sort it out.

Hey jawad how come there is no update on Way of the samurai 4 dlc, how about the people who have the game but cant have this contents.


Where is mortal kombat vita free for plus ?

ActiveSparkles 19 December, 2012 @ 10:08 pm   226

any news on netflix app for vita please? been asking for a while but nothing


As has been asked many times before, but ignored – what has happened to Mortal Kombat (Vita)?

I have looked forward to this since the announcement, and its not there! Help please… a simple reply is all we need ya know.

We pay, you respond. Simple mechanics.

supersmith2500 19 December, 2012 @ 10:14 pm   228

@mafayeu and @MrXile:
It got shifted to Friday instead for some stupid reason I don’t know why.


So… this update on the journey/swan bundle that was hinted at. Sounded promising. Like maybe being able to buy them separate. Which you know makes a lot more sense… we getting any info or is it just being brushed under the rug, so to speak??

PL---PePe---PL 19 December, 2012 @ 10:21 pm   230

Is there some kind of delay or something? It is already 11pm, but out of 4 items:

– Mortal Kombat (PS Vita) – 100% discount
– Knytt Underground – 100% discount
– Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD – 25% discount
– Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD – 25% discount

Only last one is available… I checked using both PS3 and PSVITA.

teddymeowUK 19 December, 2012 @ 10:31 pm   231

It looks like everything has refreshed on the store this week except for Mortal Kombat on PSVita.

Any idea when this will come through?

Iamtoejam 19 December, 2012 @ 10:41 pm   232

none of the new stuff for Plus is showing Mortal Kombat is still showing at £39.99 ,do we know when this will change?

Arrgh no mortal kombat for australian vita owners. i love this country but sometimes it is so backward.


On a good note thanks for bully, been meaning to play that for years 🙂

R_a_z_i_e_l 19 December, 2012 @ 11:05 pm   235

Sooo Any Reason why Australia and Germany are getting screwed over by getting a PsP game and not MK Vita ? Come on give us a break…

razordude 19 December, 2012 @ 11:13 pm   236

Er… Mortal Kombat? 100% discount.

Once again it’s lies, damn lies and the psn blog.

dark_angel69 19 December, 2012 @ 11:27 pm   237

For all those looking Mortal Kombat for vita, it should be on store on Friday. They said before Christmas and Friday will be another update. Ya all need to take a chill pill. You will get it in 2 days

CoolRichy008UK 19 December, 2012 @ 11:29 pm   238

Hey just noticed RAGE DLC??? Does anyone still play this?

NightRanma 19 December, 2012 @ 11:48 pm   241

I grabbed Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for Vita.

Also the question that I never seem to get an answer to because you guys stop answering 2 pages in, which is great when these updates don’t go up til midnight where I live. But yeah, when can I play Tomba on Vita? This is getting ridiculous.

Vimto1990 20 December, 2012 @ 12:02 am   242

Where is mortal kombat vita! It’s still not free for plus members and it’s a day late! Is it really Soo difficult to set a time for when the store updates rather than having people guessing as to what time they will get there games! 🙁
It’s a brilliant service however, and thank you, but still. I was hoping to play it after I finished work and was quite upset to see that it was still fully priced and not free for plus :/

foxsevent 20 December, 2012 @ 12:03 am   243

You can play TOMBA on PS VITA i have it on VITA.

NightRanma 20 December, 2012 @ 12:08 am   244

@foxsevent thanks for the heads up. Never saw anything about it, and it wasn’t working 2 weeks ago.

foxsevent 20 December, 2012 @ 12:17 am   245

No prob, shame that we still have to wait for Resident Evil 2 on VITA :/

Mr_Pickle 20 December, 2012 @ 12:34 am   246

Do Australians get any other VITA Plus game seeing Mortal Combat isn’t available?


I love PS+ i have been there since day 1 but where the hell is MK Vita?

DarkHeros09 20 December, 2012 @ 12:45 am   248

Tomba! and Tomba2 price went up???? why is that?? is it because it’s Compatible with psvita now???
and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD is not found in the store, what’s going on??

CostaPablo 20 December, 2012 @ 12:56 am   249

Where is Mortal Kombat? 🙁 I’ve been waiting for the game since it was announced in the Plus service and now it’s not there!

supersmith2500 20 December, 2012 @ 1:00 am   250

sigh do I have to repeat myself. MK Vita is coming this Friday according to Chris he commented eariler on.

bennoboster 20 December, 2012 @ 1:05 am   251

Any chance us Aus gamers will get a chance to play The Walking Dead anytime soon??

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 4:29 pm    

    It’s banned in Australia, there is a new rating coming in the new year which may enable this to be available but we can’t confirm that as it’s not down to us


Chris I cannot find Bully (Canis Canem Edit) anywhere on the store! Please help me out, I really want to download it!

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 4:32 pm    

    I will double check but as far as I was aware this isn’t on the store

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 4:41 pm    

    I have flagged this with the store team as I can’t find it anywhere!

    Chris Howe 20 December, 2012 @ 5:22 pm    

    Right, got to the bottom of this…..If you go on the store,games, classic games, Classic PS2 games it is in there


help with this please
downloaded motorstorm rc complete, ps3 version works fine
ps vita gives me the C2-12383-7 error.
any tips on how to solve this???

EmperorLawlight 20 December, 2012 @ 1:24 am   254

So, Australia and Germany won’t be getting anything on PS Plus for Vita?

R_a_z_i_e_l 20 December, 2012 @ 2:03 am   255

To anyone asking Australia/Germany are getting Lego Batman (PsP) Game..such BS.

boredandlazy 20 December, 2012 @ 2:04 am   256

The Unfinished Swan and Journey bundle for the 12 days of Christmas sale is completely useless to me since I already own Journey. This is really disappointing as I was hoping to buy The Unfinished Swan but I guess I’ll just wait for a later sale.
Why aren’t the separate games on a discount as well? As this deal pretty much screws over anyone who’s bought one of the games already…

boredandlazy 20 December, 2012 @ 2:13 am   257

Heh, should have read the thread dedicated to the deal first, there’s enough people complaining in there already… 😛

Raziel-chan 20 December, 2012 @ 2:53 am   258


What’s going on with RE2 for Vita? It’s been reported to work fine and the whole mishap was caused by someone not knowing how to access PSX emulator options. Yet it’s still unavailable.

C’mon, contact Capcom and tell them to put it back in! It’s my favourite part in the series!

Also, sad to see RCR being CSGOified.


another_gamer195 20 December, 2012 @ 4:13 am   259

@ psblogteam.
I am a long time reader, occasional poster in eublog/euforums. (support). and i have to say i am not liking much of anything that scee is doing lately. i wouldn’t know where to stop if i attempted to give my reasons for now having (sadly) adopted this view, i know scee is a business, and must make choices and decisions to keep it as such, but i just feel that business has taken over, in all the worst ways it can, i feel like i am being forced fed undiluted pr and sales tricks most everytime i turn on my console or visit these blogs, my feelings are it is way too much, and will produce either a opposite outcome or continued disgruntled comments on these once pleasent blogs. This used to be a tight knit and positive community, allmost family like. Not any longer though, yes i understand ‘someone’ hired ‘someone’ who’s planned out scee’s strategy, and it got approved and is now in motion.

I read the opening lines of todays heads up, and it says everything really, If a past blog mod was off on a holiday, even time off, They would of told us, We would of bidded them good times, Were has it all gone wrong ?.

Unicronic 20 December, 2012 @ 4:13 am   260

For anyone in the know. Does Stranger’s Wrath have any connectivity between PS3 and Vita on trophies or are they essentially two standalone games?

webbiies 20 December, 2012 @ 4:18 am   261

If you are getting an error when trying to download Munch’s Odysee on Aus store, create an account for the UK, can download a trial version from there. I’m halfway through downloading now, will see if you can buy full version thru homescreen and bypass the ps store errors, or if we will need to buy full version from uk store instead. hopefully it will be fixed properly to buy on 21 December though


When is mortal kombat for the ps-vital going to be available ????

webbiies 20 December, 2012 @ 4:47 am   263

Definately works with downloading trial from UK store for Munch’s Odysee:
When its downloaded and installed, sign into your actual PSN account for your region.
Press Triangle on the game icon for Munch’s Odysee
Select Purchase
you’ll be redirected to the page in the PS Store to download the game at the reduced PS plus price of $10.


Hi Chris.
How about trying to get us plus discount on Corpse Party to celebrate sequel? If I remember right it should come to Eu in january. I promised to Ross I’d buy Vita if we get good offer on ’em. 😀


Oh right, and Fred – about bloody time somebody does something about that singstar farce. Show us you care. 🙁 Ignorance ain’t blessing.

decadence79 20 December, 2012 @ 6:44 am   266

Disappointing for Australian users yet again.

The first month of the US content is better than the first 3 months combined of Australian content.

Australians get ripped with pricing compared to rest of world and shafted with content.

Why bother with PSP Batman, and Gotham City Imposters it’s a slap in the face yet again

mazegami 20 December, 2012 @ 6:53 am   267

@boredandlazy yep we’re all complaining about it, yet still no update/reply/ACKNOWLEDGEMENT!? from any blog staff 🙁

mazegami 20 December, 2012 @ 7:00 am   268

Re post…
So… this update on the journey/swan bundle that was hinted at. Sounded promising. Like maybe being able to buy them separate. Which you know makes a lot more sense… we getting any info or is it just being brushed under the rug, so to speak??

@coolrichy008UK yeah I read up on that, apparently they also wanted to put the rating up to an 18 😐 and it is/was banned in Brazil

@MININ3V I scrolled over to the latest games link on the latest stuff bit of the store and it was around a quarter of the way down but really the ps store is not great these days and is an issue in need of addressing.

Also can we have the option to remove any app from ps main screen pleeeeeease?? Everyone’s annoyed about the singstar app and me, I really hate lovefilm I’m desperate to get rid of that sucker.

pressmyfoot 20 December, 2012 @ 7:51 am   269

I want everything.

sakulukk 20 December, 2012 @ 8:32 am   270


I would like to rise a problem here, and it is a problem;
Every single update a lot more content is denied to Denmark, Finland, Norway, Poland, Sweden.

This is unacceptable and needs to be addressed; seriously we are part of Europe as well. PS Store is a service, much like for example shipping from one of the biggest European stores which HAD to start shipping to all EU countries, so why is that Sony doesn’t have to “ship” PS Store products to all EU countries as well?

I don’t want to sound rude but I and many others have been waiting more than a year now and nothing was done in NISA case for example, still no games, DLC for us, and now many more smaller games are not released as well!

You had brilliant idea with making each store in their own language but FAILED miserably to deliver…


Can you please remove the need for developers to translate text in the store to swedish, right now it’s just awkward, Google translations that doesn’t make much sense and Spanish (es instead of se), and no Disgaea for Vita. Also store headlines is sometimes Spanish instead of Swedish.


how come mk is delayed til friday when fred replied to someone on last wednesdays store post saying it will be out this wed 19th yet chris is it? said it should of been brought out later but they brought it forward to friday 21st? i dont normally complain but it seems like no one talks to each other at scee and its starting to get ridiculous.

TrueMurton 20 December, 2012 @ 9:13 am   273

Stewart Gilray, if you’re still reading we seriously appreciate your coming out here to make comments and explain the languages situation. It’s rare to see a guy in this industry with the stones to come out in front of disappointed fans and say “yes, we know you’re disappointed but this is what’s going on” and I’m sure you’ll be remembered fondly for it just as we remember this time last year Joel Kinnunen from FrozenByte Games came to this blog to explain why Trine 2 didn’t hit its date.

Again, seriously appreciated, as proud as I’m sure you are over your accomplishment with Strangers Wrath Vita, in my opinion you should be more proud about your willingness to speak with us, plenty of people make games but very very few take the time to speak with the people that buy them.


Can Anyone Tell Me If Mortal Kombat(Vita) Is LIVE Yet On UK PS Store,It’s Not Been Added To My Playstaion Plus Yet & Still Showing Full Price.No 100% Discount 🙁
What’s Happening

Dewington 20 December, 2012 @ 10:08 am   275

Mortal Kombat goes free on Vita tomorrow (21st) – there have been a few replies about it.

Unicronic 20 December, 2012 @ 10:08 am   276

@FluBBa Are serious about a Swedish store having Spanish text? Can you get a screen shot of this? If this is true (I’m not doubting you) it is hilariously abysmal and shows how little SCEE monitor QC.


Can someone here please tell me why Mortal Kombat Vita firstly, doesn’t even show up in my Playstation Plus section (neither in the Instant Game or PS Vita section) and secondly, when I search for and locate it, it is only showing as £34.99?


Chris posted in the Plus post that MK will be released on friday for PS Plus

PMurphy1978 20 December, 2012 @ 10:29 am   279


There have been few member replies about it but nothing from the team. We were originally told it would be on the 19th.

There appears to be very little explaining the change, whether it be two days late or not.

It’s called “courtesy”. 😉

And fair play to Stewart from Just Add Water for taking comments and so on here. That’s how you do it people.

BiGsMoO7ke 20 December, 2012 @ 10:39 am   280

Not available For UA… ahhhhh why do i bother 🙁


Mortal Kombat not free for PS Plus on French PlayStation Store too…

Dewington 20 December, 2012 @ 10:46 am   282


Some courtesy from yesterday – check reply to comment 122. 😉

luckysalt81 20 December, 2012 @ 10:49 am   283

Im guessing there’s going to be no update to the original blog post as stated as to the additions to the festive sale which would be added to the store sometime between Weds and Fri.

Would have been nice to see whats getting added and at what cost even if they aren’t going live on store until Friday, would help me plan my purchases, I still haven’t bought anything in this sale due to this.

Dewington 20 December, 2012 @ 10:49 am   284

In fairness though, it could do with being more clear when these updates are going live without having to sieve through comments. The blog posts do give the impression that everything will kick in at the same time.



Cheers Stu!

By the way those waiting for Far Cry 3 to go on sale in the 12 deals.
GAME are selling it at £22.49 from today.


Where is the PS Vita Sales!?
Is it on it’s way?

PMurphy1978 20 December, 2012 @ 11:17 am   288


I saw it. I meant courtesy as in “I know we promised it to you on the 19th, we are sorry about that, but it is going to be out on the 21st”.

Not “it’s coming 21st, it was going to be later”. As the latter smacks of “be thankful you are getting it at all”.

Courtesy is generally polite, and remember this is a PAID service.

There has been no explanation of the delay, two days or not. We were told one date, now have to wait later and there is no apology for it, and if anything are basically told to shut up about it.

Catkiller1 20 December, 2012 @ 11:20 am   289


You have stated that some of the discounts for tomorrow include Worms. Will this include DLC too for all Worm titles that have been released so far? I hope so, as I would like the Worms 2 Bundle & Mayhem DLC packs a little cheaper too!

drsalvador89 20 December, 2012 @ 11:53 am   290

Shuyinsama 20 December, 2012 @ 1:01 pm   292

@Fred, @jawad and @Chris…

I’ve been browsing through all the 6 comment pages, and all the comment pages in the blog posts after this.

Peopel are simply asking about MK Vita, when will it go live (according to all previous posts and still it should be 19th (yesterday))… Obviously that was not the case.
Don’t matter I can wait…but atleast answer when it IS coming, people are saying the 21st (but it’s not official)

Now I’ve seen you commenting to people who ask multiple questions (one of them is always about MK) yet you guys choose to answer all other questions and just ignore all of the MK related one’s

That is just plain simple sticking your head in the ground and ride it through.

Like someone said earlier just man up, say that it will come later and voila people wouldn’t be as [DELETED] as they are now.
Now this kind of stuff happens way more often, and that is disconcerning. do you guys even care about us? cause that is certainly the message you guys give us.

So thanks for ignoring every MK question in here, just update the blog post with the time and date and all will be well.. at the very least let us know something don’t leave your customers in the dark cause this is ridiculous…

SwingerE11 20 December, 2012 @ 1:04 pm   293

Still no 100% discount on Mortal Kombat? Please hurry it up. Don’t be lazy, now!

Kurupt_El_Don 20 December, 2012 @ 1:04 pm   294

hey guys..does anyone know why is motorstorm rc complete edition only available as a full game on ps3 and trial on vita when the game was suppose to b cross buy and b fully playable on both consoles??thanks

OeffOefff 20 December, 2012 @ 1:31 pm   295

It’s not SCEEs fault, that these games are not available in Ger/Aus. Still, it’s very disappointing, to get a Free2Play and PSP Game as Replacemet.

Please Sony, for the following plus games choose only games that can be downloaded by _all_ EU-Members. So you don’t have to make some regret their subscription. 🙂

That said: Will we ever see a discount on metal gear 2/3?

thavleifrim 20 December, 2012 @ 2:04 pm   296

Really disappointed that there was nothing to replace mortal kombat in AUS, is there any chance we will get it in the new year when our new rating laws come into effect? They could resubmit it to the ratings board as an entirely different game by including the DLC to bypass the waiting period, and on vita they wouldn’t even need to do that.

Catkiller1 20 December, 2012 @ 2:05 pm   297

@ Shuyinsama

As MK VITA is a PLUS issue, this has been answered within the PLUS Blog!

Chris has stated that it will go live tomorrow.

siavash_uae 20 December, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   298


I’ve bought escapeVektor from the UAE store. I have a weird problem! Last night when I downloaded I played it for about an hour and then turned my VITA off and plugged it in the charger.

This morning when I open lunch the game the words “escapeVektor” appear on the screen and it just hangs there. I can exit the app and re enter but nothing happens! I cant get it to work. All of my other apps and games work right now. So why is this happening?

Coody-Baroody 20 December, 2012 @ 2:16 pm   299

Can anyone remember the name of Chris’ predecessor here on the Blog? Was it ‘Ross’ someone? Im just trying to put a name to the person who this new guy Chris is SO inferior to in regards to actually taking the time to reply to us.

On average he might reply to about 3-5% of the total number of questions asked. I know they cant reply to us all but DAMN its annoying now we hardly get replied to AT ALL!

BloodMountain88 20 December, 2012 @ 3:39 pm   300

Could we get the update about what’s being added to the Festive Sale sooner than later please? As others have said, I too have been reluctant to purchase anything from the sale until I know what else will be available.

dark_angel69 20 December, 2012 @ 3:49 pm   301

If something is a ps+ game, check the ps+ post and you will find your answer and that it has NOT been ignored. In the ps+ post go to page 3 and read comment 122. People are only repeating what others have already asked, therefore they only get annoyed cos they want the attention so feel ignored.

Maybe if they done some reading then they wouldn’t need to ask the same question. Am sure you would agree answering the same question over and over and over again gets annoying. No-one should have to repeat themselves. Yes it would have been nice if it was in the post but it aren’t so that means everyone needs to read some comments (in the correct post of course) before they post something

monoliet 20 December, 2012 @ 4:10 pm   302

30% = rong +- 45 %

MASPALOMAZ 20 December, 2012 @ 4:15 pm   304

WOW! Reading these Comments sony must be the most hated company in the world! Do the managers not care? And fellow ps3 gamers please dont hate the blog people they just do their job,some might not even have a Playstation (or use it), so they just cannot answer all these questions or react to all these complaints! If you have an isse with something it would probably make more sense to try to find the contact infos for managers within Sony Europe and contact them directly.

monoliet 20 December, 2012 @ 4:17 pm   305

no , i hate sony
not some peopel who need to keep their mount chut by sony .



Oh, you hate Sony?
Tell me how you have a Playstation Plus subscription, a store bought avatar and tons of free stuff for the price of one game, and still hate Sony.
It is people like you that destroy the values of gamers by constantly harassing this blog with your stupidity. Wise up, and quit acting like a child.

Grantoso 20 December, 2012 @ 4:48 pm   307

Will there be a PS2 classics sale anytime soon?


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.

supersmith2500 20 December, 2012 @ 5:02 pm   309

Chris, any words on two missing PSone games which is Disney’s Tarzan and Future Cop LAPD?

mazegami 20 December, 2012 @ 5:05 pm   310

Er Chris, you posted in the update that bully was released on the store yesterday… also I’ve got it downloading. And just found it again. It’s in the ps2 section so don’t worry!! 🙂


i think he means SCEE with that cause i also hate SCEE for their horrible job sony overal is doing pretty good it’s just here in europe they keep spitting in our face. while we ask for some godamn improvements.

Phantom_Blaze 20 December, 2012 @ 5:31 pm   312

Hi, once again:

Please can we have the following:

Assassin’s Creed 3 Avatars
Assassin’s Creed 3 Theme

I WANT to spend 20p on an avatar for once in my life, and you’ve stopped me from being able to do this! Please can you add these AC 3 items to the UK store.

Also any news for the following apps??

Ps Vita Wake Up Club
PS3 Youtube App

Acrillic 20 December, 2012 @ 5:39 pm   313

I bought Deus Ex: Human Revolution and it keeps freezing after press start. Anyone else having this problem?

ownjoouk 20 December, 2012 @ 6:04 pm   314

I’m used to Sony crapping on us in the EU now. Just get used to it. It makes it so much easier to get past something when they break a promise. And if you still don’t like it get a 360 and stop whinging about it. Sony will always see the EU as as third place Behind the US and Japan. The sooner you realise this the sooner you stop expecting things to be on time and don’t mind as much when its late or if you don’t get it.

Also as a PS+ member I get free things so if its a little late who cares. Its free and you will eventually get it. Again if you don’t like it don’t renew and play the Wii or something.

AeonsDead 20 December, 2012 @ 6:20 pm   315

My dream is to be able to e-mail “Sony managers”, just now we are stuck asking mods, bloggers, community wardens etc. Which would be fine if they had any real authority, but they don’t.

To be able to do anything they have to ask their superiors, if we want them to ask their superiors something we have to beg.
Their superiors have no idea how the Sony feedback system works, the mods and bloggers do anything to avoid asking their bosses anything and they sneakily refuse to give you their bosses contact details, because it would highlight their lackadaisical nature towards customer support and would mean they actually have to do some work.

I want managers replying on this blog, not some nerd who is scared he will get fired for raising issues made by the community.

Acrillic 20 December, 2012 @ 6:30 pm   316

The game works when I’m signed out of PSN.


hey i bought motorstorm rc complete pack and pure chess festival pack and both get error c2-12383-7 while instaling it, tried to redownload etc. What should i do to play them? Wrote on community forum on technical help but nobody replied.Would be so kind if u guys help me , really wana play those games on my christmas free days 😉

You guys might wanna have a look here. that’ll give you an idea on how sales are supposed to work.


Posted on 20 December, 2012 at 4:27 pm by Chris Howe
Fred will be posting an update on the festive sale tomorrow morning

It is about time. And it better be some good PSVita deals too as I can’t understand why it was forgotten in the Christmas deals already and USA has some bad ass PSVita deals.

A new console, it is not selling up to what is expected, so there is a need to get it into the spotlights.

Besides that, when something is promised, keep it. An update for the festival sales were up for today, the 20th. Now it is tomorrow morning 21st.

World is gonna end tomorrow you know, so that’ll be little time to enjoy what we buy digitally 😛


Hi Chris Just wondering when Mortal Kombat and the other PSN Plus games will become part of the instant game collection as the store in New Zealand has updated and everything apart from the new plus vita games have been added or changed. Thanks.

Unicronic 21 December, 2012 @ 2:46 am   321

For anyone who forgot, Mortal Kombat was due on 19th. It was first announced here:

This is the verbatim information:

“PlayStation Plus December content:
5th December: Batman: Arkham City (PS3)
5th December: LIMBO (PS3)
5th December: Vanquish (PS3)
12th December: Big Sky Infinity (PS Vita and PS3)
19th December: Mortal Kombat (PS Vita) – not available in AU
21st December: Knytt Underground (PS Vita and PS3)”

So any replies stating that MK was brought forwards for us is complete garbage and the fact that it is already two days late does very little to inspire confidence. Mistakes happen, we all accept that, but covering them up with lies is very disappointing to say the least.

XclanOrigin 21 December, 2012 @ 8:38 am   322

It’s Friday already and I don’t see neither mortal kombat nor Knytt Underground, why is that? I’ve been waiting for Mortal Kombat since it was announced and would love to know when will I be able to donwload it.

ADAMJAMESXX 21 December, 2012 @ 9:15 am   323

@Acrillic yep deux ex does that to me clue why it only does it when your online.

ADAMJAMESXX 21 December, 2012 @ 9:20 am   324

i brought gta 4 complete edition but it shows as just gta 4 and its got a expire date lol ringing them would most likely cost more than i paid for the game the amount of time they keep you hanging.anyways any way to fix this.


Mortal Kombat Vita and Knytt Underground have both just showed up in my search results as PS Plus freebies on the Vita PS Store! Give them a search people! They are on there! Just not yet in the featured section! I’m downloading mine right now!


Will the store still update on 2nd January with the 3 new PS Plus games??


Good news people, both the Papo & Yo and Datura soundtracks are now available.

Fistoflove 21 December, 2012 @ 11:45 am   328

I bought Motorstorm RC Complete Edition.

I am getting a C2-12383-7 error when I try to install the game on Vita. It installed fine on PS3.

I tried all obvious solutions like checking if I have enough space and transfering the Vita game from PS3.

Is there a way for me to install the game I paid for?

windsorblue01 21 December, 2012 @ 11:46 am   329

picked up the Datura one for free on wednesday you just noticed?


This blog isn’t known for it’s detailed information on what’s available, they didn’t even tell us that Suda 51’s Black Knight Sword (trial & unlock) is in store.

windsorblue01 21 December, 2012 @ 12:22 pm   331

something that say free always catches my eye anyway both the new ps+ is on the store free now but you have to search

ashton_philip 21 December, 2012 @ 12:30 pm   332

@MR_PS its true guys the games are up i’m downloading them now, won’t be leaving my vita for a while 🙂 Thanks MR_PS

Sp4rkyM4rk1337 21 December, 2012 @ 1:30 pm   333

Not sure if it was intended, but it seems LEGO Batman: The Videogame [PSP] is free in the UK for Plus members (in addition to Mortal Kombat as intended).

Huono_peleis 21 December, 2012 @ 1:54 pm   334

Why is Lego Batman replacing Mortal Kombat as a Plus offering in Finland? It was to be case in Germany and ( I believe) in Australia only.

Same problem anywhere else or is it just affecting the finnish store?

supersmith2500 21 December, 2012 @ 2:15 pm   335

LEGO Batman free for rest of Europe as well? I thought it was only for Germany and Australia?

windsorblue01 21 December, 2012 @ 2:19 pm   336

@supersmith2500 dont think it was meant to be free in our store

supersmith2500 21 December, 2012 @ 2:25 pm   337

Don’t know but I’ll wait for Chris or Fred to reply and find out, if they say it’s free for rest of Europe too. I’ll get it but in the mean time, I’ll wait for an answer.

Monto-1985 21 December, 2012 @ 2:46 pm   338

are PS+ users outside Australia and Germany getting the PSP Batman game on top of Mortal Kombat for vita?

On the PC store i see the batman game but no clue about Mortal Kombat. Hoppefully it is just a mistake and you will fix this.

I literally bought the vita last week, when i knew Mortal Kombat was coming for free for PS+.


So where is munch’s oddysee for the belgian/flemish store ? We dont want no french version on the flemish store, strangers wrath was released without a problem in english on the flemish store, whats the sudden problem with munch ? i got money ready to spend but if you dont want it …


Someone missed the Mortal Kombat on PS+ … hopefully someone doesn’t need to fix this over the holiday, just go home to your family and have a nice Christmas.


Everyone who wants to download Mortal Kombat early log into on the website

Search for Mortal Kombat and find the Vita version the price is free and it it to your basket and complete the purchase.

Monto-1985 21 December, 2012 @ 3:26 pm   342

thanks for the heads up Zarran


The RAGE Scorchers DLC is superb, easily worth the asking price. Recommended!

AeonsDead 21 December, 2012 @ 5:56 pm   344

Can we get Hogs of War for the PS1?


Still no mortal kombat!

MaxiM_82 21 December, 2012 @ 6:44 pm   346

Still no Mortal Kombat in the IGC, what the hell?


mortal kombat is free i have it on my vita and it was free, not checked the ps3 store but its on the vita store.

MaxiM_82 21 December, 2012 @ 6:53 pm   348

Ah, thanks ZarraN, you saved me some grief over the weekend. I haven’t read the comments before posting ;]

supersmith2500 21 December, 2012 @ 7:59 pm   349

Store needs a great fix because not many games are found and have to use manual search to find them. Please fix.

PanMario 21 December, 2012 @ 8:24 pm   350

Is Bully an HD version (similar to x360 one)?

moartierd 21 December, 2012 @ 9:05 pm   351

A truly weak effort on the PS Plus teams part, the “replacement” game (which everyone else got anyway, so it just turns out we get less content) was average when it was released in 2008 and I doubt many will be happy to see it on PS Plus.

Also, I’m disappointed in the blog mods for constantly avoiding replies to any post that asked for clarification on the replacement game. Clearly they are embarrassed to be presenting such a weak offering on PS Plus but refusing to acknowledge the matter (which seems to have continued, the game doesn’t even appear in the blog post) is both frustrating for Aus/German and unprofessional.

Pick up your game, guys!

BrianCOfficial 22 December, 2012 @ 9:13 am   352

Can’t find any new ps2 titels in store :s when it comes ???


Are Activison planning to release the Anger Management DLC for Angry Birds Trilogy in Europe.

supersmith2500 22 December, 2012 @ 11:55 am   354

Now that Future Cop LAPD is back, what about Tarzan?

Shiku_kiari 22 December, 2012 @ 2:29 pm   355

HI! i didn´t quite get it… it says above that jetpack joyride won´t be available in Portugal, at least in the 19th, but in the end you say that it will be available in the 21st of December. In the PT PSN Store, jetpack joyride is still priced at 4 euros… is it definitly not coming for free to the PT Store, or was is supposed to be free since yesterday? Thanks! 🙂

Iron14-28 22 December, 2012 @ 2:40 pm   356

how about the DLC packs for skyrim when will those packs come to ps3??

gtstcactus 23 December, 2012 @ 5:31 am   357

In the next store update is New Zealand going to get Mortal Kombat? I see Australia and Germany are not getting it and sadly getting Gotham City imposters instead. New Zealand so often gets lumped in with Australia I am preying that you don’t do that to us and give New Zealand Mortal Kombat, ratings are not an issue here.

Hey Chris

Have Happy Celebrations in advance, i would like to ask is it possible to come in european psn or to say it in other words….any news about the legend of dragoon crash bash and chocobo racing maybe to european psn???….pls reply if u want and hope at least for the legend of dragoon to have good news???? 😀 😀 😀 😀

Skookie30 30 December, 2012 @ 12:43 pm   359

You think I forgot SCEA extra store update lol.

How does it feel that SCEA get a extra store update at Xmas eve and our store shut up shop till 9th jan 2013?

SCEE is so lazy but I’m not surprised because they did thar last year too & 2013 be same old useless SCEE. 😐

E-lwa_Saif 30 December, 2012 @ 4:46 pm   360

why is black ops 2 season pass for 67.99$ it should be 49.99$ like the NA stores -.-

Project2insanity 30 December, 2012 @ 7:27 pm   361

@Skookie30; Your last comment really ain’t cool. SCEE provide a service, they ain’t our slaves. If SCEA had an update then good show but I certainly would not begrudge either party as a result.

jkm1234567890 2 January, 2013 @ 7:34 pm   362

why is Jetpack Joyride not for free in the Netherlands I like this game so much and It is free in the appstore and in the rest of the world for playstation ?


Awesome just found out that Jetpack Joyride is now available on the Swedish store :D.
