Jawad, Chris or Fred !

Is Tomb Raider getting digital release on PSN Store next week ?!?

I know that many are asking the same thing. So please answer Yes/No

It’s very frustrating not knowing if it’s going to be avaliable so close to launch…

Thanks in advance 🙂

    Chris Howe 27 February, 2013 @ 4:49 pm    

    We are expecting an update on this release date soon, we will let you know as soon as we have it

MrChilliBeer 27 February, 2013 @ 3:03 pm   2

Can you give anymore details on the PSASBR DLC?

What exactly are the 2 packs, more skins?

Silent_Gig 27 February, 2013 @ 3:04 pm   3

Hey guys great update, some good gems in there.
Any chance you guys could work with monkeypaw about getting us Persona 2 Eternal Punishment for PS1 on the EU store?
Besides that i wish you guys a good rest of the week.

AeonTheGentleman 27 February, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   4

I got to ask, does the uncharted multiplayer registers any kind of trophies?

will Tomb Raider be on ps store next week?


Uncharted 3 Multiplayer is not free but “Free 2 Play”, which means there a lot of stuff there you have to pay for. Please stop abusing “free” word.

TINTINTB303 27 February, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   7

LOL@ Uncharted “free to play”

Add all the extra parts together then you are better off just buying the GOTY version of U3.

Please people just buy the GOTY disc and save money plus save PS3 memory space 😉

Chaosprower 27 February, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   8

The US is getting the Toro’s Friend Network app for PS Vita in Spring. Any news for Europe for this?


That’s all very nice and everything (especially free God Of War!), but where are the shiny HD trailers from the PS4 conference for watching on a big screen?

Actarus2878 27 February, 2013 @ 3:08 pm   10

so Skyrim DLC’s are not available at all here in Luxembourg???? you must be kidding me!!!!!

Bacon_Crispies 27 February, 2013 @ 3:08 pm   11

Any update on The Unfinished Swan demo coming back?

Where’s Uncharted 3 GOTY ?



Do you have any plans to make the add-on content for wipeout 2048 available as part of the igc? I own wipeout on ps3, but it says the add-on content is available free if you have purchased the game from the store.

bibster100 27 February, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   14

No walking dead offer like the US. Come on Sony

RemyX-1988 27 February, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   15

Not much for me this week. And now that I see the Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 DLC, I wonder what happened to the free DLC that was said to be available a few weeks ago. I still can’t see it…

Those were comic costumes, if I am correct. Any word on that? Where is it? When is it coming? I’d like to know this… 🙂

Worfthedog 27 February, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   16

Oh Mr Ambassador with these PlayStation Plus updates you are really spoiling us!

Carnivius_Prime 27 February, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   17

Obviously I’ve downloaded Uncharted 3 MP as a digital version has been on my most wanted list for a while. Downloaded the God of War demo last night off the US store. Is good except for one reeeally annoying bit.


any update please on q force for the vita?

ShogunDarius 27 February, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   19

Where’s Generation of Chaos, Pandora’s Reflection for PSP, the official website states it should have released here last week


No Gamer’s Choice Awards discounts for EU? Disappointing!

Omegabug2003 27 February, 2013 @ 3:11 pm   21

No Mass Effect Reckoning?? 🙁


So you can purchase Bioshock Infinite Season Pass, but you can’t preorder Bioshock Infinite ?
Or did I miss something ?

    Chris Howe 27 February, 2013 @ 3:19 pm    

    If you search the store for Bioshock Infinite you will see a product called Bioshock Infinite Pre-order offer

Will the Mass Effect 3 Reckoning MP DLC be available today?

yaroslav1990 27 February, 2013 @ 3:12 pm   24

Chris, where is that forty percent discount on a Far Cry 3 ?

SCOUSE_LUNTY17 27 February, 2013 @ 3:13 pm   25

no hogs of war for ps1 reply why

Hello PS BLOG EU article updater person,

Any chance for a Rainbow Moon discount to celebrate the Vita release? Or just a discount because I want it?

Because I do.

Kind Regards


I have to agree with #3, regarding Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. I hope that it can one day be brought to the European playstation store as I’d love to finally have every Persona game on my lovely PS Vita! Hopefully P2:EP could be brought to the PSN Classics selection with ease as it was never released to European territories in the past, here’s hoping!

Other than that request, thanks for GoW HD!~ Got to love being a Plus member, we really get great deals and freebies!

clarkes1990 27 February, 2013 @ 3:13 pm   28

can we get a DLC sale, guys?

for games with multiple DLC packs, like Assassin’s Creed, Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City, etc.

    Chris Howe 27 February, 2013 @ 3:22 pm    

    We are looking to do one in the future but I wouldn’t like to commit to dates at the moment

THE_LEGEND_JAY 27 February, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   29

Will the EU store be getting all the discounts that the US store currently has? Looks like a lot of good deals.


When will the youtube app for ps vita come and netflix for vita come?
And any chance for star wars battlefront renegade squadron coming to vita aswell?


What is the price of Dawnguard in £? Apologies if its already in the post but I can’t see one.

Also when I saw Far Cry 3 had a ‘nice little discount’ I thought I might get it if it was cheap enough. But it’s not much of an offer when the discount price is higher then the disc price at the games release :/

davidrocks247 27 February, 2013 @ 3:15 pm   32

BOOOOOOOOOOOO is all i say , were the GOOD PS2 games , or in that fact any PSone games ! , man just alot of DLC -_____-” , bad update

TINTINTB303 27 February, 2013 @ 3:15 pm   33

GAME are selling the U3 GOTY for £29.99.

Includes EVERYTHING that the PS Store is offering you.

Talk about a rip-off.

PS Store = £66.83 for U3 GOTY

GAME = £29.99 for the same but on disc!!!



Where’s the Deluxe DLC Bundle for Most Wanted? It should include Terminal Velocity, NFS Heroes, and Movie Legends all for 25 euros.

Don’t tell me it’s not coming because the US store got it!

Any news about wipeout fusion coming to ps3

Overlord1304 27 February, 2013 @ 3:16 pm   36

Chris, did you get promoted to the store update team or is Jawad just taking a break this week? 🙂

Anyway, I wanted to ask: what happened to the ability to add free (Plus included) content to the store cart, and then “purchase” en-mass and add to the download list. Now you have to “buy” it all individually, and it starts downloading immediately as well.

Please bring back the add to download list option that we had before.

    Chris Howe 27 February, 2013 @ 3:33 pm    

    haha I’m just covering for Jawad today as he is off

    I will look into the query


nice lots of new stuf
only chame i am not abel to play 1 match of cod bo2 after latest patch

AaronSOLDIER 27 February, 2013 @ 3:17 pm   38

No Uncharted 3 GOTY Edition? US Store it is then.


I was wondering,

Persona 4 Golden published by NISA was released in whole Europe, but avatars are still not being released and I know today more avatars were released in Europe….

Still metadata issue or overlooking maybe?



If you want Uncharted 3, with all DLC, don’t get the ‘Free 2 play’ digital copy and then but everything.

Uncharted 3 Game of the Year Edition has everything! And you can get it for under £20 online. DON’T GET FOOLED.

still no skyrim dlc to saudi store ?? I hate getting my hopes up and then …… 🙁


Also, since the new layout was launched, sharing your purchases doesn’t work on PS3 anymore, only on VITA, can you guys look into this?


God of War: Ascension
PEGI: 18
Availability: All (PS Plus-only in Germany)

i was SOOOOO happy for all the german people when i saw this :p

Chaosprower 27 February, 2013 @ 3:19 pm   44

LOL at prices.

Uncharted 3 “Free” Multiplayer + All the DLC: 78,44€ (implying you buy the unlimited level cap and not the 25 one.)

Uncharted 3 Game Of The Year Edition on Amazon: 36,32€ (and the normal edition even less).


“A nice saving on the phenomenal Far Cry 3”

Far Cry 3 – Was €69.99/£59.99; now €49.99/£39.99

Erm…yup, I’m definitely saving money by not buying from you guys.

bLaiSe_HUN 27 February, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   46

Thanks for GoW HD!

Chris, you mentioned that there will be a PSP sale in the near future. That is good news because I really want to play a few PSP classics on my Vita.
Here are some suggestions that I think would be great to get discounted.

God of War CoO and GoS, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, LocoRoco 1&2, MGS: Peace Walker, Patapon 1&2&3, Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, Daxter, Resistance Retribution, Star Wars: Battlefront, GTA games.

And most importantly (for me) Killzone: Liberation. As Killzone: Mercenary is on its the way to the Vita it would be awesome to pass the time with a Killzone on the go.

Artemisthemp 27 February, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   47

No HDN Mk-2 avatar’s in Denmark, No Disgaea 4 Avatar and neither a Youtube app for Vita 🙁
Oh well in the future hopefully

GametimeUK 27 February, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   48

Counter Strike any time soon?

Gartland_1986 27 February, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   49

Any news on Counter Strike?

acridweasel 27 February, 2013 @ 3:22 pm   50

Ouch @ the NFS Most Wanted DLC pricing in comparison to the US price.
At least I will pay in GBP, which doesn’t appear to suffer quite as badly as the EUR price.
Is this all down to taxes? Magic?

TINTINTB303 27 February, 2013 @ 3:23 pm   51 are selling Uncharted 3 GOTY for £16.85

I laugh at your rip-off “free to play” business model.

Please people, do not get fooled by this!!!


Yeeha, why buy a disc copy of FC3 for £27.99 when I can have the digital copy for £39.99 😉


I thought Vergil’s Downfall was coming out today? Not that it affects me as I’ve already got it 😀

bLaiSe_HUN 27 February, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   54


Oh, I forgot Motorstorm: Arctic Edge.


Uncharted 3 “free-to-play” costs roughly £66 for all the add-ons. Uncharted 3 GOTY Edition sold for £25 when it was brand new. You’re asking for more for what is the equivalent of the GOTY Edition than you would for a brand new retail game (which is ridiculous to begin with). This game is not even new either.

Artemisthemp 27 February, 2013 @ 3:28 pm   56

What happen to 10% of Season Pass for Bioshock infinite for PSN+ customer?

BIG_MAC-- 27 February, 2013 @ 3:28 pm   57

yes god of war free ! anyway could someone at sony please make a section of all the previous ps plus avatars, I really want that kratos avatar! reply thanks 🙂


Can you give a bit more of a heads up of future discounts!? Walking Dead offer coming next month you say….glad i paid full price for that 5 days ago then!!!!!!

turbogeek421 27 February, 2013 @ 3:31 pm   59

ERROR: The Rocksmith DLC for Incubus – “Love Hurts” is not available yet.

I heard from one of the devs that there is an issue with it and will be released later, along with a pack for all 3 songs.

“Anna Molly” and “Wish You Were Here” are still available now though.

Hi Chris, I can’t seem to find the PS2 classics: SSX Tricky and NFS: Most Wanted.

Any chance on getting those 2 ps2 games back on the store? 🙂 thanks.


any idea of a update for ratchet and Clank Q Force Vita, i know its due in the spring but we need a new date asap

Splutterbug 27 February, 2013 @ 3:33 pm   62

Just another mention for Persona 2: Eternal Punishment please, and maybe even a nice discount for 3 🙂

GalapagosaraY 27 February, 2013 @ 3:34 pm   63

How come Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires comes to the store but not the more popular and regular games in their franchises like Dynasty Warriors 7/8 and Warriors Orochi 3 ? I would buy those games instantly and they are generally more popular in Europe than Empires.

Chocobo115 27 February, 2013 @ 3:34 pm   64

For some reason I can’t download the free Dust 514 DLC on PS+. Just saying :/


Any news on enforcing dynamic theme publishers to include a preview function (as was the case before the Store overhaul)?

Surely there’s a legal issue relating to their refusal to allow consumers to know what they’re buying beforehand? I’ve bought several “blind” earlier this year, and as the quality was so outrageously poor I haven’t bought any since. Which is a shame as I love dynamic themes, but I won’t give any more money to these particular Eastern European rip-off merchants (who flood the store with trash every week…guess that’s why they don’t want to offer previews); And in turn it’s affecting possible sales from other publishers, and Sony’s percentage.

Could you guys try enforcing full disclosure of products you’re giving licence to sell on the store? It’s really shoddy behaviour.

seldinhio 27 February, 2013 @ 3:34 pm   66

The worst week for Vita ever. Need some Vita love.


1 small question Chris Howe

lots of times whe have problems whith peopel making erors in store

@ Chris

We are not celebrating the Vita’s one-year anniversary?


What! no price drop on daggerdale like yankees got. Listen, drop it to 10 euro like in states. Then have 50% off sale on it and 20-30% extra off for plussers on top of that and thenn i can think of buying it.



Any possibility of a discount on Sine Mora for Vita? 😛


I think we need to know what is going to happen with our psplus with ps4 just round the corner. I think its only fair as you want us to pay for a year etc when the landscape of the next year is so uncertain for us

gollumclay 27 February, 2013 @ 3:40 pm   73

Any news on a Terraria release date?


not jet date from the publisher
soon anouncement on twitter i read 🙂

i tink 3/4 week of march

Hey, what about Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus for Vita? Will it be available on March 1st or I’ll have to wait for another update?! And will it be available in Russia?

    Chris Howe 27 February, 2013 @ 3:51 pm    

    Yes this will be available in Russia but we are awaiting an update from the publisher regarding release

TINTINTB303 27 February, 2013 @ 3:42 pm   76

Free GoW is much appreciated!!

Cheers Chris 😀

madScientistUK 27 February, 2013 @ 3:43 pm   77

@ Any after the ME3 MP DLC

Go to the web store:!/en-gb/home/main

and search for ME3, then look at the associated add-ons at the bottom of the page. Reckoning is amongst them and can be added to your download list from there.

Witcher70 27 February, 2013 @ 3:43 pm   78

Laughing myself silly over the “Free-To-Play” Uncharted 3 £55.26… Uncharted series well and truly spoiled.

Riko_player44 27 February, 2013 @ 3:44 pm   79

Is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 plus (PS Vita) coming => 28 February or 1st March on PS Store Europe ??
Thanks !

    Chris Howe 27 February, 2013 @ 3:49 pm    

    We are expecting an update on release date from the publisher soon on this, we will let you know as soon as we do

Martyness 27 February, 2013 @ 3:48 pm   80

Where’s the premium bundle dlc for need for speed most wanted???? both it and the complete collection dlc are meantioned in your post but aren’t up on the uk store but the rest of the dlc content is


I’ve got a pre-owned copy of Uncharted 3, will the multiplayer work from the disc now or will I need to download the software from the store?

anunnakid 27 February, 2013 @ 3:53 pm   82

The store says the Starwars DLC for Zen pinball 2 is free.
Whats up with that?

Nightmare966 27 February, 2013 @ 3:54 pm   83

Hi Chris, I have a few questions/suggestions I hope you guys can take a look at:

1 – This one’s been in my head for quite some time and I hope you really consider it… I’ve noticed that there are quite a few soundtracks of games on the Store, like Journey, God of War, inFamous… The thing is, sometimes there are soundtracks that don’t see the light of an Occidental release or a release at all. So is it possible you guys could take a look and talk to certain publishers to bring in some of their Official Soundtracks to the Store? Such as Bayonetta, Soul Calibur or Tekken, or Assassin’s Creed and the such. I believe it’d be a nice addition and it’d stay true to the gaming purpose of the service 🙂

2 – Make the, at least already existant Soundtracks, compatible with Vita software and PS4 — it’s just unpacking MP3 files!

[To be continued, 2 remaining]

MrChilliBeer 27 February, 2013 @ 3:54 pm   84

@71 – I agree! I’d love Sine Mora on the Vita, I picked it up on Steam recently for under £3!

Even a 50% discount for plus members would be fantastic.

Nightmare966 27 February, 2013 @ 3:55 pm   85

3 – Still OST related, but this one’s I’m wondering: Do you know if the Sly: Thieves in Time Soundtrack that’s on the US Store is coming also on release day?

4 – This one’s really needed: Do you think you can try to get back some of the Avatar categories to the Store?Sometimes it’s true they’re linked to their game pages, but sometimes they aren’t and, well, navigating through 2000+ files with the same pricing isn’t really easy!

So that’s it from me this week. Let’s see what next week brings us — I’ve already grabbed that GOW HD digital edition for me 😛

RE: Mass Effect 3 Reckoning – found it – thank you 🙂

Any news on a release date for Legend of Dragoon PS1 Classic?

I don’t really get how Sony treats the german market.
The GoW demo and Uncharted 3 MP are only available via Plus, because you can’t legally share that kind of content for free?

How does SOE offer Planetside 2 then in Germany? I could offer tons of examples that SCEE’s ideas and thoughts about the legal requirements on the german market are outright wrong and unrealistic.
I wonder how many years must pass till someone in London will register that too. 🙁

DeividHasselhoff 27 February, 2013 @ 4:00 pm   89

Asking the same thing as # 80.
NFS:MW dlc bundle isn’t available in PS store and neither in ingame store.

Dj_Twista93 27 February, 2013 @ 4:02 pm   90

Just looked on the AU store and fornd NO “Complete DLC Bundle” or “Premium Bundle” for Need for Speed Most Wanted??

Is there any particular reason the Koei PS2 Classics aren’t released to the Danish, Swedish, etc. stores? I assume it must have something to do with the fact that those countries apparently have their own store fronts or something to that effect. This refers to games such as Warriors Orochi, Dynasty Warriors 5, Samurai Warriors 2: Empires and so on.

Dj_Twista93 27 February, 2013 @ 4:03 pm   92

Do you have any information when Bit Trip Runner 2 is coming out on PSN? It came out on other platforms this, but not on PSN.


Hey where’s the most wanted dlc bundle? (New dlc that is)
Also was wondering, I thought dmc: vergils downfall was getting released today?
Please reply 🙂

I want to play NGS2+( My american friend is already playing it, but I can’t because Europe always sucks. Screw that, I am moving to USA.


Thanks for your answer Chris 😉


Will we ever get a promotion like they have in the US atm where they get $10 of PSN credit back for every $50 they spend on the store? Not the first time they’ve had such a promotion either and they just got free credit for the PS4 announcement too.

God of War HD is a nice bonus for PS+, never really been into the series but will definitely look at it now.

Shadowhero92 27 February, 2013 @ 4:06 pm   98

2 questions, 1: when will the EU store update and 2: will dawnguard be available for the uk?

BigBoyBazzer89 27 February, 2013 @ 4:06 pm   99

I’m going to ask the same as #80, #88 and #89. I was hoping to get either the “Premium Bundle” or the “Complete DLC Bundle” for Most Wanted.

The separate pack are there, so where are the bundles?

Actarus2878 27 February, 2013 @ 4:07 pm   100

can somenone please tell me why the skyrim DLC’s are nor available here in Luxembourg???
They are available in the netherlands and in belgium and as far as i know we belong to the benelux branch of sony too, so please give me a plausible explanation!!!!!

2 weeks ago jawad told me they should be available here but they are not!!!!

shirongreedo 27 February, 2013 @ 4:09 pm   101

at Chris Howe why is warriors orochi not available in belgium and in the netherlands? just like dynasty warriors 4,5 and samurai warriors 1,2? tell me why. and dont tell me (we dont know or we have no information). I want real answers


Does Naughty dog have to make it confusing that the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer is free to play but you still have topay for the DLC maps and modes for the game? Not what I was expecting!!!!! Next time PLEASE have the maps and mode free to download like the last free limited time only DLC maps and guns for Uncharted 2 multiplayer which I am glad I am still playing!!!!

nikolaskejd 27 February, 2013 @ 4:14 pm   103

Where is Skyrim DLC in Croatia??? No DLC whatsoever???! I’m waiting for 2 weeks now. Do you even care, Sony? Will anyone answer me at last? That’s just unacceptable, I loaded my account with money for Skyrim DLC and now there’s nothing again? I sure could forget about the discounts too if it ever comes on Croatian PSN store!

DutchGameGod21 27 February, 2013 @ 4:16 pm   104

Best Chris

Do you if Tom Raider will be availble as digtal donwload in the store next week ?

PREYDRAGON 27 February, 2013 @ 4:17 pm   105

@ Chris Howe

Can you please ask your team if they can bring us ps1 classics ‘Destruction Derby 2’ and ‘Destruction Derby Raw’ and ps2 ‘Destruction Derby arenas’ since sony already owns the license to these games SCE Studio Liverpool aka Psygnosis. You brought us Destruction Derby so please bring us the following three other games.

cowbanana 27 February, 2013 @ 4:21 pm   106

WHEN DO WE GET… YouTube for Vita in Denmark?

Why do you keep avoiding this question? The service level is just abysmal. SCEE’s inability to provide standard services is incredibly poor and your communication is even more so.

Scuffy_P 27 February, 2013 @ 4:26 pm   107

Forgot to ask:

Is it possible the Store could make trailers available in relation to the period a particular game is being advertised? If a trailer for a AAA+ title does miraculously appear, 90% of the time it’s two months after the game has launched.

Where are all the God of War trailers? Killzone Shadow Fall? Infamous Second Son? These are Playstaion exclusives, yet there’s more chance of finding them on XBL Marketplace than the PSN Store.

Where are the Crysis 3 trailers? MGR: Revengance? Tomb Raider? Bioshock? Dead Space? Where are they all? If limp sites like Gamespot, IGN, GameTrailers etc, are 100x more up-to-date than the system-holder of the platform such titles are to be released on, it doesn’t show SCEE as an entity that is even slightly aware of what’s happening around them.

The PS4 had better bring some serious reforms to SCEE, and SCEWW in general.

nikolaskejd 27 February, 2013 @ 4:28 pm   108

Where is skyrim dlc in croatia? Stop deleting my posts.

Hey Chris, is Sly Cooper: Theives in Time definitely confirmed for 29th March?

cowbanana 27 February, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   111

Hey Chris, did you guys go home again, leaving your customers hanging?

When do we get YouTube on Vita in Denmark? Is it that hard to get Google to put the app on the store here? Why can’t we have it?

It makes you look bad that you can’t secure basic services for Vita owners and quite frankly it doesn’t instill confidence in your PS4 support being any better… I am not exactly thrilled with the level of service provided in Scandinavia. PS4 is going to be a tough sell here when you don’t seem to care about this region.

CreditDue 27 February, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   112

what are the chances of there being a GoW sale in the week leadig up to Ascension’s release?

MikeProtagonist 27 February, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   113

Glory of Love still isn’t available for Rock Band 3, it was supposed to be released on the 13th. Harmonix thought it would get out today, but apparently it didn’t. When can we expect to get this song?

I like how we are getting more costumes for PlayStation All Stars Battle Royal 🙂


Where is the Raiden costume dlc from pre order? or Big Daddy, Dante and Heiatchi. I know they are all 3rd party but please please can we get them 🙁

I want to play as Raiden in the awesome MGS2 skull suit :'(

cowbanana 27 February, 2013 @ 4:49 pm   117

@ CreditDue

That’s not really an option due to how accounts are handled on the Vita. The issue is pure discrimination.

Sony is absolutely abysmal when it comes to regional differences. Even within Europe things are totally messed up. UK gets everything and many countries are lucky if they get any services at all. In Denmark we get nothing.

This really has to change. Sony is an ancient dinosaur stumbling around in the digital space. It boggles the mind how a corporation can be so inept in 2013. I’d laugh at Sony if I hadn’t bought their hardware. Such great hardware platforms ruined by ancient regional thinking and completely inept management.

maniac00 27 February, 2013 @ 4:49 pm   118

Hello Chris,

I can’t find the NFS: MW Complete DLC bundle and Premium bundle. Are these coming sometime later??

Lance_87 27 February, 2013 @ 4:50 pm   119


Where’s the Deluxe DLC Bundle for Most Wanted? It should include Terminal Velocity, NFS Heroes, and Movie Legends all for 25 euros.

Don’t tell me it’s not coming because the US store got it!

stathmos 27 February, 2013 @ 4:52 pm   120


I actually prefer it when free stuff starts downloading immediately and the rest is added to the cart. Awesome God of War offer btw!


Hey, where’s the PS2 game Maken Shao: Demon Sword? Ghostlight’s been saying on their blog that it was scheduled to be published by Midas today.

Shadowdragoon 27 February, 2013 @ 5:02 pm   122

Do wonder if I get a response anytime at all.. (Almost no reason to alter text, whit the lack of response)
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 KEEP demand native language descriptions on dlc when most countries in EU have a rather good grasp of english.

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
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
Cross Region Gifting. WHEN?

Sarajevo89 27 February, 2013 @ 5:07 pm   123

Hey Chris,can you tell me when will Mass Effect 2 discount arrive?
You announced it last week.

taurus82 27 February, 2013 @ 5:08 pm   124

I believe all those PS2 ‘Classics’ were in bargain bin the day they were released.

Good job GOW is fantastical violence cause my empathy will disagree with anything realistic.
…and I’ll have to wait till friday for the Star Wars tables, unless someone wants to spot me a £20 (just kidding).

Lastly, wouldn’t it be nice if we could rate the download list items instead having to though the painfully slow store?

Dark_Overlord 27 February, 2013 @ 5:10 pm   125

A little bit more info on the Mafia 2 essentials pack please 🙂

I own the Platinum version and am curious if the DLC includes anything not on the disc 🙂

another_gamer195 27 February, 2013 @ 5:12 pm   126

Looks like ps scee is getting some good deals lately, and compared to a few months (and forever) back we Are. But then i compare our deals with US ones. and it’s Still business as usual.. Why do sony Allways make us EU ‘spending’ customers suffer So…o much ?. it’s a Blatent case of ‘we allready have Your money/’think’ we allways will’, So all our best offers are going to be aimed at ‘roping’ others into this (adiction ?) gamebuying business.. which IS business i know, but it’s hard to watch. IF we ‘spenders’ were occasionally rewarded it wouldn’t be to bad, i mean they Can do their business in US, ie try and gain More ms ground, And reward the avarage ‘spender’ in the process. But no such luck, (concern) for us euro folk, sony are going to be sorry IF they do finally win the US market war, because basically they’ll lose More back in Their ‘home ground’, ie us the EU, theres only so much people will take, and sony c/o scee have pushed many of us to the limits.
in short.. US presently has 20% off everything, on Top of their cheaper (than ours) stuff, Most of which is Also in it’s own ‘Majestic’ sales.. IT Pays to Spend money, There.

Nice one TinTin, its what I love about the Sony blog/Community forum, you find all the best deals. Just bought U3 from Bargain, so much so I didn’t even feel a little bit guilty buying Spy Hunter PS Vita. The Vita game looks mediocre but at least I’m supporting the platform, plus I loved the Spy Hunter tune as a kid, hopefully this if nothing else has been preserved.


Holy cr@p! Dora Exploradora 😀

thegreatherron 27 February, 2013 @ 5:23 pm   132

What about the full version of Uncharted 3 as a download?

When will SCEE allow us to delete Singstar icon/wallpaper? I want straight answer why do you keep it undeletable. I don’t want some copy/paste PR answer – i want solution!!! I won’t stop complaining until my XMB will be clean and tidy like was before 10/2012. Never.

I am also waiting for the day to come when you get ‘rewarded’ with a reply, i mean i noticed your weekly post about 3 months ago, How long Have you been posting that for/waiting for some reply, even just a general acknowledgement ?.. There Must be a reason why you’ve Never gotten a answer.. maybe if you altered the opening few lines you may fare better, as the mods/staff have some strange rules they Must abide to, is alls i can think of, ie your somehow preventing them from responding by posting the exact same post weekly.. try mixing it up, and if that also fails then i would try and post on first page every week until they either answered you, or maybe more people perhaps remember this blog is meant to be for All, and raised Their ‘concerns’ as well.. 10/10 for your perseverance though mate.

urmyleander 27 February, 2013 @ 5:42 pm   138

You guys really need to work on incentives to get people to buy FULL ps3 games from your store.

I rarely buy a full game from the store in fact the only time in which I purchase a full PS3 game from your store is when I can’t find it in an actual store (like ni no kuni recently where a shopkeeper told me it would be March before they had a copy in).

I do purchase full PSP games and will be purchasing full vita games (When more I’m interested in pop up).
But the PS3 full game pricing just seems whack.

I could deal with the prices if I felt I was getting something back for it, you should possibly consider offering some kind of “points” for purchasing a full PS3 game from the store which could be used to purchase psn avatars or the likes, not something massive but just that tinsy bit of an extra incentive.

Also just wondering but will games purchased on from PSN be reverse compatible on the PS4, like can I redownload my library of purchases on that console when it comes out?

@another_gamer195 I do alter text a little, last week, I noted that two of the games that used to be on the list was avavible, and would be off list, and as it have been confirmed that scee demands localised info for the local storecrews, I altered one line, and removed some text. I also do alter some text each week, not much, but maybe I should try to think out a bigger change to next week..

Vashetti 27 February, 2013 @ 5:51 pm   143

Nice update.

Would it be possible we could get discounts on Mass Effect 3 DLC such as:

From Ashes (already have this one)

to coincide with Mass Effect 3 coming free with Plus this month?

As well as the final expansion Citadel coming out.

It’d be a great incentive to get people to buy the whole story.

answer pls 🙂

OK, I have to ask; where the hell is Peter Cetera’s Glory of Love for Rock Band 3?

It was supposed to be out 2 weeks ago with the Valentine themed dlc.

And for that matter, there are 3 Rock Band Network songs that are still not available here, yet have been available for a while in the US:

Blackguard – “This Round’s On Me”
Francisco Meza – “The Restless Mind”
Jerry Naylor – “That’ll Be The Day”

I really hope someone from SCEE sort this mess out.

JT_denim 27 February, 2013 @ 5:59 pm   148

Any chance of us seeing a release for Persona 3 Fes as a PS2 classic? So I know whether or not I should hold out on purchasing it from the US store.



ok where is the Ragnorak Odyssey add ons on the Vita? I cannot find anything on the vita store except demo and game download, u say here free DLC….but it doesnt exist…thats why its free?

Doomman1024 27 February, 2013 @ 6:04 pm   150

Hi! What about preorder on Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel? And will we see this game in ps store?

monoliet 27 February, 2013 @ 6:08 pm   151

skidpro 149@
u need to go in search mode then put Ragnarok Odyssey , then u see game + all dlc .

search option = best friend on new store 🙂


i know lets hide it, so people cannot find any free and paid for DLC for the RO….I found it, takes a bit a searching so why cant it be listed in ADD ONS to make things easy….

another_gamer195 27 February, 2013 @ 6:18 pm   153

@ Vasheti. or anyone that can answer.
re. ME3. i actually seen this getting sold (new) for £5.99 in a local gameshop other week, (, and grabbed it solely to play the alternate ending, plus revisit MP, for a while.. Anyway this alternate ending i downloaded was about 1880MB in size, so i thought good, must be good bit of extra gameplay in all that. I loaded my last save up, just before i make jump to citadel etc, lol, took Ages to do as it was insane run.. So after reaching starchild and choices, All i seen was the third (middle) option that looked different, i picked it but i only seen a alternative But same ending as before. ?. Was i meant to start from a earlier chapter Or is That it, i mean i cannot see how that other ending would need a 1800MB download, just for the ‘all (cept Shepard) live happily ever after’ tosh that i watched. Absolutely No additional game-Play in what i saw… Did i miss something ?..

Scubafinch 27 February, 2013 @ 6:37 pm   154

Thanks for the update. Just for reference, I asked Barbie (Zen Studios) what the Australian price of the Star Wars tables would be… and she was pretty certain that it was AU $9.99. So I look on the store and find it’s 50% more expensive as AU $14.95.

Exchange rates would lead to AU $9.80 or $11.87 comparing to US and EU costs. So why do we get the highest price as always? Usually someone from the blog comes back with “It’s not out fault, it’s the publisher”, but in this case Zen Pinball is published by Sony.

Well, I suppose I should formalise my complaint to Jim Ryan and Nick Caplin… not much can be achieved by expressing my dissatisfaction here, other than some support from fellow Australians (and hoping that our digital price commission actually results in something).

JammieDodgerz 27 February, 2013 @ 6:39 pm   155

I have noticed that for the past few months these Store Update posts now dont show what new videos are released.

For instance I always watch Access TV and that was always listed before. There have been times where it is not on every week as well, so if it was not on the list then I knew it would not be on the store.

Why does this no longer show these items such as trailers etc?

B_E_C_K_A_S 27 February, 2013 @ 7:31 pm   163

For the ones asking i can confirm that in the F2P MP UNCHARTED 3 it popped the looking for action trophy (complete a competitive mp game)

another_gamer195 27 February, 2013 @ 8:10 pm   166

@ jamieDodgerZ
You can find them unlock (6kb) files in your downloaded list, either in store, or better in your account management, (where you sign in) under transactions, i believe it’s faster using account one, as theres no lag when you need to go back about 800 or so downloads to find stuff.. try it instore and takes ages.. btw, Was going to post 10 min ago but got call, so if anyones allready answered i don’t know.

Woah, just reread your post, do you mean you used downloaded list but because there not on store no more they didn’t work ?, have to say i never heard of that happening before. IF that’s what you meant then Jawad, Chris or Fred best report that, as cust services wouldn’t offer much help.


Chris, my £10 free PSN credit is taking much longer than expected, the US have had it for over a week, can we expect it this year or is it like every other issue of us getting crap and them getting gifts galore and us getting ignored?…

    Chris Howe 28 February, 2013 @ 9:24 am    

    We have at no point said that we would be doing that, I would not expect that to happen

daweasel27 27 February, 2013 @ 8:19 pm   169

Chris Howe
I just want to ask when and if we are getting the same disccount on the walking dead and journey like the US
Thank You very much 🙂


Also when can we expect the store to be updated to suck less? Its been months since it was forced onto us despite the old store working much better, and its still super slow, hard to navigate, search that doesnt work with a keyboard, massive banners on PS+ despite owning PS+, no search downloads/filter?
Also the currency conversion is still hella off compared to America, they complain about better PS+, but pay so much less for everything else its shocking (could no doubt buy 5 games a month for the price of one digital game here)
This will no doubt be ignored as its not praising SCEE x_X


You should correct the availability of “Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Mermaids”. It certainly isn’t available to “All”.


@Chris Howe – Hi Chris. I was just wondering if there will be some PS Vita DLC will be included in the upcoming DLC sale that you mentioned that is in the works?

Everytime Super Stardust Delta is on sale; the DLC is not on sale, so that would be great to have on sale, as would the Snooker DLC for Hustle Kings and the two track packs for MotorStorm RC.

Is there any update on The Unfinished Swan sale and anything else that we can expect soon?


    Chris Howe 28 February, 2013 @ 9:22 am    

    I don’t think I ever said we would defiitely be doing a DLC sale I said we would look at doing one so I can’t confirm what would and wouldn’t be in such a sale at this time.

    There will be a discount on Unfinished Swan in March

Is the Uncharted 3 Goty edition coming to the European store like it did in the US or are we going to be limited to all those individual components? Naughty Dog said it was going to be released, but so far only in the US. Can we get an answer concerning this? I never bought U3 in the hopes it would be released as a digital download, and finally when it comes, it comes in this horribly expensive way.

The LBP2 Muppets Level Kit is at the full price at the Store, please fix it! Thanks

Terminus124 27 February, 2013 @ 10:26 pm   181

Any chance of discount on Metal Gear Solid (PS1 game) since you’re giving HD Collection on PS+ list?
Pls, pls, pls 🙂


Hi Chris, currently there is no 10% discount on the Infinite season pass as detailed in the PLUS post earlier today, any news on this? Also, would have been nice to have some 1080p PS4 videos to download…other than that, good update this week.

Why isn’t black ops 2 pack up

Bumblebee 28 February, 2013 @ 12:44 am   184

I can’t believe you are still sticking with this awful, slow, confusing, unwieldy mess of a badly-designed HORROR of a store.

Again, I say BRING BACK THE OLD STORE PLEASE. I get notalgic when the old UI appears when I try to buy something in-game.

I’ve just been booted THREE TIMES from the store. THREE. If I wasn’t so keen to buy Skyrim content I’d not bother at all.

It’s pathetic.

@ chris

I was planning on purchasing the ps1 classic ape escape for my ps3, however it seems only the vita version or the move version is available. Is there any possibility of the original PAL version coming?

thanks 🙂

scottie_do 28 February, 2013 @ 1:09 am   186

Any plans to put megaman maverick hunter x on the instant game collection? I noticed it is on (or about to be on) the US list.



Please help me with this urgent PS+ glitch.

I “bought” Dust 514 : Starter Pack for Free with my PS+ subscription.
I didn’t download it, just “purchased” it to have it in my download list for whenever I wanted to play the game.

But it is now not in my download list, and it’s listed as 9.99 Euros on the PS+ section in PS3’s playstation store.
(don’t have a PC currently to check the Webstore, just a PS3).

What’s the issue here?



on the IRISH store when I try and buy skyrim dawnguard (it is advartised),when I click on it,it just shows the dlc heartfire and dragonborn where is dawnguard


and btw could you tell me if the battlefield 3 premium pass is going to be on sale it was on sale last week on xbox and this week on pc

    Chris Howe 28 February, 2013 @ 9:02 am    

    I do not think we have any plans for this to be on sale in teh immediate future but things can change pretty quickly

Demoplay86 28 February, 2013 @ 5:47 am   190

RE: Chris
Just knowing that you actually got my message means I can ease up for awhile. Thanks for your consideration man. You’ve always been great with the community. Very decent and understanding. Very much appreciated.

Also, a problem with Dawnguard in Au
The 1 week discount isn’t showing up.
It say’s it’s meant to be $7 ish but it’s $11 ish.
Hope this can be fixed ASAP.

Thanks, just thought i’d point it out

    Chris Howe 28 February, 2013 @ 8:57 am    

    No worries, I have sent emails off to relevant people to see what I can find out.

    Regarding Dawnguard, I have sent an email to store ops to get this resolved

    Chris Howe 28 February, 2013 @ 9:01 am    

    Apologies, the pricing is correct for Australia, the price above is Euro’s which means that its $11.75 in Australia and then this will go up to $24.95 next week so grab it now!

TR-yunus 28 February, 2013 @ 5:57 am   191

Tomb Raider
Will this be available for digital download ?

vRemiiqz 28 February, 2013 @ 6:00 am   192

you know I would like to see more ps one classics added to the store. I recently bought a ps vita and ive been downloading ps one classics like crazy and so im waiting for more games that are being demanded by so many like Croc legend of the gobbos, Tarzan, Digimon rumble arena, Spider-man and Spider-man enter electro. I played all these when I was kid and now my ps1 is broken I would really like to play them again did anyone else play these?

LazyBones9000 28 February, 2013 @ 6:38 am   193

Hi Chris

I saw the North American PSN Update A few days ago and was quite impressed with a far few amazing PS Plus discounts, is there any chance we will be seeing those? Please say yes 🙂

    Chris Howe 28 February, 2013 @ 8:52 am    

    The two stores are different, there are discounts we are able to secure and some that we are not and vice versa so it is unlikely that we will always be able to align

AmorousBadger1 28 February, 2013 @ 7:10 am   194

What is the point doing a ‘new to PSN’ update AFTER the content goes live? I’d imagine that most people reading this blog would have already done so or are intending to do so by the time you get round to putting the update out. why not release details sooner? Some of us like to plan a little you know.

Doomman1024 28 February, 2013 @ 9:27 am   195

@Chris Howe
Hi! What about preorder on Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel? And will we see this game in ps store?

Faustofausto 28 February, 2013 @ 10:12 am   196

@Chris Howe
The LBP2 Muppets Level Kit is still £4.79, PLEASE fix it! Thank you!

ZeChickenboi 28 February, 2013 @ 10:22 am   197

@Chris Howe

Hi Chris, do you know when we will be getting the last DLC for Dungeon Defenders and the patch for insane+? It’s been out for months in the US but seems like we’ve been forgotten!!

Also is there a chance we could see some classic ps1 games such as poy poy 1+2, more bishi bashi, team buddies and the battle arena toshinden series?
Is there even a chance of Radiata Stories form the ps2?

Hexahedronaut 28 February, 2013 @ 10:47 am   198

@153 Mass effect 3 extending ending is when you basically tell the creepy ghost child you wont pick any of the options works if you turn around and shot him I think as we’ll.

@187 yeh happened to me aswell when it was free it wouldn’t download at all not even in my download list so that sucks. Shame the store update then got completely overshadowed by the ps4 announcement..

@162 all of access tv episodes are up just sometimes they don’t update when the store does. A little bit later it seems. No idea why they stopped listing them.

Hexahedronaut 28 February, 2013 @ 10:58 am   199

Great update guys!! I only have one complaint and it kinda makes me really angry it’s the USA guys getting 10$ for being “loyal” I’m sorry but what! LOYAL oh please hey get spooned fed every week more content, astronomically cheaper, content on time when it’s released, when we get missing content for months and months with no word as to why alla counter strike, content that’s insanely overpriced eg cod bo2 season pass priced more than the disc copy on launch day, and a team that seam like they don’t care I know you try your best but seriously Sony entertainment needs to be one compony not split up like this coz lets be honest guys… It’s not working. And the singstar icon I honestly don’t care that its there it’s just the way you guys went about it the first article we got about it the replies to comments where with a I don’t care deal with it attitude 🙁 just a simple delete button that would take 5 minute to implement you would make everyone happy please just give us that choice sorry to rant my post probably won’t be read just insta deleted.


Hi Chris,
Thanks for taking the time to reply to us.
A small question concerning the Skyrim DLC.
I live in The Netherlands, and i see the ‘French’ dlc is the only available in my country.
Did you guys put my country at the wrong spot.
Because we talk English best here, not much French.

Hope to hear from you before all my skyrim kills will moan in French!


Hi Chris,

Regarding the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Revolution pack — there’s only one version available in the store with ‘product code’ (NPEB-01204) and it is not compatible with my copy of the game that has the ‘product code’ (BLES-01717). Would you kindly verify if that version is universal (compatible with all Black Ops 2 copies), or there will be other versions with different codes available?


Anything on The Legend of Dragoon being added to the store?
It’s the only thing I’d really care to see on there.

SOOO… where is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus?

    Fred Dutton 28 February, 2013 @ 12:30 pm    

    We heard from Tecmo overnight and I have an update for you. The physical version will be released in stores tomorrow as advertised, while the digital version will be made available on PS Store next Wednesday.


Any news/update on Tomb Raider digital release ?

Another week?! What the hell?

Omegastoopreme 28 February, 2013 @ 1:39 pm   206

Who do the entire RPG loving community of the UK need to speak at to get Suikoden a UK PSN release?

Its been on the USA store for years and a hard copy here is rarer and more expensive than hens teeth

Nightmare966 28 February, 2013 @ 2:35 pm   207


The Ascension demo seems to have disappeared from the Store (at least the spanish one) — what’s happenned? :/

GOW Ascention demo dissapeared from czech store too. Yesterday evening it was there and now… fail after fail. Wake up SCEE!!!

Vojvoda_13 28 February, 2013 @ 4:35 pm   209

Sony will skyrim dlc’s ever be available in the remaining regions or not? It would be nice to get a proper answer…..

R3dC3llTran3 28 February, 2013 @ 6:04 pm   210

Hi. Is there a way we see SKYRIM DLC 50% off all 3. For 1 or maybe more days? Because i only got the money yesterday.. And we waited so many time for this.. I get mad seeing some countrys getting all 3 same time 50%.. I had the money before but the dlc didnt come so i wasted in other psn stuff.. And now.. Oh well

tori_bori 28 February, 2013 @ 6:30 pm   211

Any plans for Gamer’s choice awards sale for EU? Journey, Sound shapes, Tokyo jungle?

Turbine_inc 28 February, 2013 @ 7:44 pm   212

no news on counter strike still LOL

right ok, so you dont know why its delayed then? you didnt even realise it wasnt released yet? you arent aware its been out for MONTHS everywhere else??

how can there be no news at all when none at all has been given, other then its been delayed, if you dont know why its been delayed or have a rough idea when it will be released, you are pathetic at your job….or a liar

it wont ever be released, just admit it

SamiFFXII 28 February, 2013 @ 7:47 pm   213

Uncharted 3: Game of the Year Edition is £13.20 on Amazon UK just saying…

solarwind12 28 February, 2013 @ 9:18 pm   214

Counter-Strike (GOne) is also on sale in US atm, it’s because it won Gamers Choice Awards for best MP game.. so i can understand now why this IS a big deal to some (lots) people, i just wanted to know why, i mean how hard is it for scee to explain here, or valve on their site, why EU, well PSN EU can’t have it. as i really need to know answer, is it a demand by a anonymous (cough) group that IF it’s released they’ll cause a outrage, of some sort, like a 007 plot with all the secrecy, i mean they probably Could tell us, but then they’d have to kill us, ha,, wouldn’t mind but unlike real secret, or classified info, there probably isn’t a 20or30 year disclosure clause, (freedom of information act, i think), so in (hopefully) about 50 years, when i’m ready to meet Saint Peter (again Hopefully), my last ever thought could just be. Why didn’t they release CS-GO for EU-PSN..
Well, silly as above is, it pales in comparison to the debacle that is the cs-go saga.

irononreverse 28 February, 2013 @ 9:51 pm   215

Why is Demolition Inc listed again? I bought it maybe a month or so back and now it’s newly listed and available for purchase again instead of displaying the shopping bag icon.

Is this a new version or something?


I hear that the Youtube app is out in Europe since the 13th, but for some reason it’s not available in The Netherlands. I can’t think of any reason for that to be the case (I have a lot of devices that have it), so I was wondering if it is perhaps just a glitch, or someone forgot to tick a box in front of our country? 😉


BUSTURCAP96 28 February, 2013 @ 11:38 pm   217

Any news on when ps store is coming back I really want to get the black ops map pack.

ChairyBoyArmy 28 February, 2013 @ 11:46 pm   218

plz plz plz “The Warriors” ps2 classic , its been on psp for years , plz could we get it on ps3 before its too late.
Many thanks to all that make this poss , or their voices heard asking for this.

WhiteWolf1166 1 March, 2013 @ 2:50 am   219

I would like “the warriors” ps2 classic also, awesome game and to have it on ps3 would be fantastic, im sure there would be a good lot of people out there who would enjoy this game, please 🙂

goldeneug 1 March, 2013 @ 6:28 am   220

Hi Chris,
still waiting on the Motorstorm RC download code from the Ratchet and Clank PSV debacle…
I followed the criteria but alas still no code. Being an Aussie have anything to do with it?
Thanks for your help…

Podyman 1 March, 2013 @ 8:50 am   221


If you want GOW Ascention demo, go to web based SEN from PC and trought search you will find a GOW Ascention page with “Try demo” button. Then it will appear in your download list. Why it was removed from the store? It’s still a mystery.

Biggswb 1 March, 2013 @ 9:07 am   222

Will we be getting NGS2+ on the store? Not 1 store in dundee bothered to get a copy of it in, then they had the cheek to tell me if I wanted it I should have preordered, no wonder the vita is a flop in this country the stores dont stock more than 10 games, I know there isnt THE best selection on vita yet but the stores just dont bother with it when there is something to buy

gravegostone 1 March, 2013 @ 12:14 pm   223

this is str8 up rediculous!!! NGS2+ shud be here allready!, pre-ordered it at my local store Nedgame, found out TODAY! it is a week DELAYED!!. And now I read that the digital version is coming next week also, str8 up and down BS!!! I think I grab the US version,,,, with my US account!!! was realy looking forward to this but fuc it all now! crappy update! its clear to see more money hungry games get advantage!
stay +

gravegostone 1 March, 2013 @ 12:31 pm   224

Best Mister Fred,
NGS+2 is not in the fysical stores, which make me very sad!

MASPALOMAZ 1 March, 2013 @ 1:43 pm   225

Just had a weak moment and considered buying Black Ops 2 Season Pass but the shop lets me only reload 50 EUR or 150 EUR and it costs 52 but I am definately not putting 150 EUR up in the ps store LOl, thanks sony !

Spiroth 1 March, 2013 @ 1:57 pm   226

Hi Chris!

Can you please look for a solution for my problem about the Dust 514 Starter pack (Post #187 in this article) if you have the time?


quantum7 1 March, 2013 @ 1:58 pm   227

Hi Chris,

Can you pass onto whoever deals with it that the LBP2 Muppets Level Kit is still priced at the Full £4.79. In the sale post its in the list to be reduced.


Dermado 2 March, 2013 @ 7:31 am   228

Chris, its really terribly disapointing that you dont pick up on sarcasm and statements that will always lead to disapointment given SCEEs trackrecord and bad replies (in my case the likelyhood of the £10 free PSN credit? yeah, we arent America, Sony barely accept that we exist, let alone are an important and large chunk of their consumer base)
But I mean honestly, telling the guy a page back that PSEe gets “some discounts SCEA do not”…thats a bunch of crap and you know it, the sheer number and level that they get, combined with natural lower prices? Be blunt with us, its better than lying and hiding behind half truths =/.

And for something completely different.
For PS+, Im pretty sure I saw you comment a few days ago that YOU contacted the publishers asking if content could be added to PS+, would that not make even more sense to have a poll and see exactly what games people want? having…well how many people voted on the PS+ content one? we still dont have the outcome? but say 70% percent of that, would surely sway favour and attract attention as opposed to you guessing?

sainicen47 2 March, 2013 @ 10:04 am   229

I was wondering, are the Skyrim’s DLCs coming to UAE?

leon_GAMER5 2 March, 2013 @ 5:35 pm   230

can you please put the god of war accention avatars in the saudi arebian plus please…

sixxdogg68 2 March, 2013 @ 10:59 pm   231

HI, with the release of Star Wars on Zen Pinball are there any plans on having a table sale on the others that are available?

ninjin-uk 3 March, 2013 @ 1:09 am   232

Japan has had it for two months now… any news of a Soul Sacrifice demo for Europe? I doubt I’ll buy it without getting a feel for its gameplay before hand, I’m sure I am not alone in that thought.

MuramasaEdge 3 March, 2013 @ 2:09 am   233

Hey guys, keep up the good work!

Any chance of seeing Legend of Dragoon on PSN- It’s a rare gem, and has been out in the United States PSN for almost a year! I’d suggest after the runaway success of Ni No Kuni that there’s never been a better time to get it released over here. Don’t much fancy making a US account for one game, or worse buying it for £60-100 on Ebay!! 😀


fauxtronic 5 March, 2013 @ 4:09 pm   234

OK, so I’m just discovering that now Ross has left, the only realiable way to isolate Playstation Plus posts is by bookmarking Chris Howe’s blog page instead of the playstationplus category. Is there a reason you sometimes file them under the playstationplus category but sometimes don’t bother?

Barrett_Zak 6 March, 2013 @ 6:25 am   235

any hope for la noire or fifa 12/13 in the instant game collection?

pixie696 10 March, 2013 @ 11:49 am   236

umm dam it no the pressure pressure!
