‘Heads-up’ PlayStation Store update 20th February 2013

The wait has been long, but Persona 4 Golden is finally out this week on PS Vita. Murders have been occurring in the small town of Inaba and you and your friends decide to investigate matters further and seek the truth behind it all.

Spend time with your friends and family to increase your social links, take on a variety of sidequests and extracurricular activities, or collect and fuse new Personas. Juggle all of this and more before the fog sets.


Boss battles are back and more epic than ever in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Download the free demo and confront an enraged Nine-Tails in the middle of the Leaf village as a prelude to the long awaited Great Ninja War. Fight your way through the new adventure mode and discover revamped gameplay setting new standards for the series.

One more for this week – Hearthfire for Skyrim! For the first time in the Elder Scrolls universe, purchase land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with armoury, alchemy laboratory, trophy room, and more! With Hearthfire, the possibilities of what you can build are endless.

Waaah, theres no Crash Bash again, Waaah when will you sort this problem that no one else cares about, Waaah why have I no sense to just buy a disc version on eBay?

YouTube app for my Vita… When?

Bacon_Crispies 20 February, 2013 @ 15:08

When is The Unfinished Swan demo coming back to the store, it disappeared a few weeks back?


I’ve raised it with one of our guys. If all is well then it should be soon.

LordOfThePies80 20 February, 2013 @ 15:09

Urban Trials looks ruddy magic! just buy it people.

supersmith2500 20 February, 2013 @ 15:09

Sounds like the PSVita has finally got some love after all and yay the costumes for PASBR are here. = D

Hey normal human being, stop playing FIFA 13.
Instead, buy a Vita with Persona 4 Golden.

Thank me later.

Hey Jawad.
Any chance of there being some Ni No Kuni or Persona 4 avatars on the store?

Hey PSNstore team, great job on the update today. Also EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE PS meeting tonight!

love ragnorack
but i have question to u Jawad Ashraf

why = trophies wen u get them pop in game them are english but when u looking in u list of trophies them al in japanese ???

Any chance the £5 minimum top up will be removed at all?
Fed up of having to spend a fiver everytime I want DLC.

Nintendo let you pay the required amount through the eShop…come on Sony!

Hi Jawad

Does DmC content Vergil’s downfall have a UK release date?

Can you try to get overboard as a PS1 classic?

Many Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

Storm 3 demo is epic.

Also downloaded AC3 DLC. Namco Bandai please consider Naruto avatars. Japan have K-ON.

Quick question, what is the download size of Persona 4?


Now THATS what I call a good week for us Vita owners!

May I ask, why is Urban Trial Freestyle not available in Denmark? Denmark and Turkey only? That seems rather odd.


A decision from the publisher. It could change but right now that’s how it is sadly.


Is Hitler assassination dlc included with Sniper Ellite v2 ??!?


Singstar icon delete option – when?

Hey Jawad, is there any possibility for more full game trials for playstation plus users. I haven’t seen any new games recently.

Why is Urban Trial Freestyle not available in Denmark?!….

I’m am so tired of this!!


I think your youtube app is in the same place as my Netflix app


#2 Soon.
Any chance for HDN Avatar for Denmark?

mentholmoose51 20 February, 2013 @ 15:13

Will Sakura-so no Pet na Kanoj be getting an EU release?


Hey Jawad!
Any info when will the good old PSP games hit the Hungarian store?
I really miss them when switched from UK account to Hungarian on Vita.
Of course it’s also an option to allow multiple users on Vita :-)
I really would like to get an answer about the main blocking point not counting Willingness.

tobiasampersand 20 February, 2013 @ 15:14

Hello! Not sure if this will get a response, but a while ago I saw some rather cool Viewtiful Joe avatars in the US store. Any chance Capcom might bring them this way? I remember reading a while ago they have some issues with bringing all of their content across.

Keep up the awesome work!

Does Urban Trial Freestyle support cross-buy? If not, any chance of a PS3/PSVita bundle?


It does not sadly, but you do benefit from a discount from being a Plus member.

So more Skullgirl colour DLC getting leaked on to the store? Wonder if they know that shouldn’t be out yet until the 360 patch is up.

Also where is Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus? I’ve been waiting for that to drop since everywhere else got it.

Hi Jawad, What is going on with the PS Allstars costume packs? I really wanted to get the new ones but they are mixed in with the costumes I received with my pre-order. I know I can buy them individually but I am then being penalized for pre-ordering by having to pay a higher price, Why? Could we get a fix on this??? It was bad enough seeing the game for sale at half price a few weeks ago and now this. . .

Hi Jawad,
Is Urban Trial Freestyle a cross-buy title?


Hi Jawad,
Any idea when the UK/Europeans are getting the Netflix app on Vita? The US got it mid last year!

Just as a side note, anyone who has taken part in the Rise of the Warrior as a Spartan on the official God of War website should be getting their codes emailed out today for early access to the new Ascension demo. For everyone else it’s expected next week:



I thought Trials was supposed to be cross-buy?

alice_push_lara2 20 February, 2013 @ 15:16

Now available everywhere except Australia…

never mind…

Awesome Naruto Demo !!!!

Is there going to be the “inferno Armour”- named Armour for Raiden in METAL GEAR RISING in the future ??????
I´ve seen it´s in a steel box, buyible on amazon but I thought it might be here purchasable as well ….

Just ragnarok for me this week, picking up my physical copy of P4G on friday :)


Sumioni: Demon Arts and Orgarythm are still not available in Russia. Any comment?

I asked last week bout the germinator game saying it was cross buy cross save when bought with ps3 version on the games overview but can’t find it on store and still awaiting a reply please??shame trials ain’t cross buy but does look good


It is cross-save.

I notice on the US blog that SCEA are giving away $10 store credit to some of their ‘loyal users’. Are SCEE going to follow suit (given my luck I probably wouldn’t fit whatever the criteria are anyway) or is this going to be another area of contention between European users and Sony?

Hi Jawad

Is the Zone of the Enders HD collection set to be released on the EU PS Store anytime soon?


No date yet :(

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 full game will be available on the psn store?


Not likely.

Ragnarok Oddysey, P4G (finally) and Lumines for me :)


Hey Jawad

Any idea if the EU’s going to be getting Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels Plus? the US got it last week, and I’ve heard nothing about it hitting the EU PSN yet.


I too have not heard anything about it yet. If anything, Konami will reveal it.

When will availability be updated?

Been waiting for Sumioni since pretty much forever, only to see it not available in my country when it finally gets to the european store.

No because SCEE don’t see us as loyal customers,free £10 for EU users that’ll be the day

Hey, I won a Persona 4 Golden code from IGN before christmas which apparently wasn’t region locked. How soon would I be able to use this code to download Persona 4 Golden? Would I have to wait until the store updates on Friday?


Something you’d really need to take up with IGN but the game is available today from PS Store.

I see Oddworld Strangers Wrath got a PS3/Vita double dip bundle.I was under the impression that people who had previously bought the PS3 version would be able to get a double dip discount on the Vita version.Now it appears that new customers are being rewarded while day one purchasers of the PS3 version are getting the short end of the stick. Not blaming anyone in particular, just expressing my disappointment as i have been waiting to purchase the Vita version.

Stewart Gilray 20 February, 2013 @ 17:00

This was a bit of a surprise to us, as our own release date for this was in three weeks time, hence not out in SCEA yet.

We are hoping it should work that existing owners of PS3 or VITA should get a discount on the other version.

We shall be talking to SCEE about this, but please bear with us in the meantime.


i agree the EU delay for persona golden was long , fortunately the wait wasnt because i already imported the US version long time ago, next better release games in a timely manner or ill import :D

So. Will certain EU members be getting a free game voucher like US members?

Carnivius_Prime 20 February, 2013 @ 15:27

Grabbed me the Capcom arcade games. I loves this stuff. Pixelly with scanlines and everything. Ahh…

markymillertime5 20 February, 2013 @ 15:29

Haha £60 for Crysis 3?! Can I have what you’re smoking pls. Oh & when’s spamstar being removed from my xmb bar & trophy list?

It seems certain PSN users in the US are being given a free $10 of credit for the store through their message boxes. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone from EU at all? Or is this gonna be US only?
