‘Heads-up’ PlayStation Store update, 10th April 2013

First up this week, the phenomenal Guacamelee! Carlos Calaca has kidnapped El Presidente’s Daughter, and he plans to sacrifice her in order to merge the World of the Living with the World of the Dead.

Juan Aguacate, an agave farmer who stumbles upon a Legendary Luchador mask, must find the strength and courage to become the hero he’s always dreamed of being and put a stop to this.

Travel through a mystical and mysterious Mexican world as a Luchador using the power of your two fists to battle evil. Uncover hidden wrestling techniques like the Rooster Uppercut, and Dimension Swap to open new areas and secrets.

Elsewhere this week, Table Mini Golf arrives on PS Vita, there’s a Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge bundle for PS3 and fresh DLC for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Oh, and PS Plus members can grab the excellent Virtue’s Last Reward for their PS Vitas as part of the Instant Game Collection. Enjoy!

Still no Machinarium(Vita), Bit.TRIP Runner 2, Terreria and Nun Attack? -_-

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:01

Our guys are working very hard with the publishers and developers to get these out as quickly as possible. Though we’d like to get these out this week, sadly it just couldn’t be. As soon as there’s more info on a date for any of those titles they will be announced here on the Blog. Please be patient as we get everything ready for you.

Hey Jawad,

Great update, gonna love Guacamelee!
Can I make a request? Is it possible for you to get Star Wars: Battlefront 2 onto the PS Store as a PS2 classic? Is there any news on this title? I would do anything to be able to play this game again :D

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:02

I’ve enjoyed Guacamelee so far and I trust many will :)

There’s no news on PS2 titles at the moment, sorry.

I was waiting for Bioshock Infinite avatars :(

Anyway thanks for VLR!

So many Classics I could just faint…


Dear Jawad,

In practice, there is no email support for Israelis in the UK or in Israel.

Is it possible to let Israelis to purchase WRC 3 DLCs (Safari & Mini) in the Israeli PSN Store?

Please assist because you are out last hope.

Thank you.

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:03

At this time there aren’t plans to distribute that DLC in Israel.

DoYouLikeMyID 10 April, 2013 @ 15:05

Maybe you should add something to the post about the Vita YouTube app being available in more countries. (At least in Denmark) :D

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:05

I did alas it’s…vanished! Grr. But yes, it is now available for Denmark, Finland and Norway.

Carnivius_Prime 10 April, 2013 @ 15:06

Still waiting for Guilty Gear XXwhatever it’s called. But hey I was pleasantly surprised by War in the North in last week’s PS+ freebies. I hate Lord of the Rings but that game gives me a nice hack n slash with satisfying combat feel and online co op multiplayer and I’ve already finished the game twice in the past week so I must enjoy it! Doing the Legendary difficulty now and may even platinum this game. And there’s so very few games I can ever be bothered to platinum…

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:11

GG might still be a while off :( :(

A_Nonny_Moose 10 April, 2013 @ 15:06

Woah, small update. Would it be possible with smaller updates like this to list any new themes and avatars too?

Also, Guacamelee’s cross-buy goes both ways, yes?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:10

May be possible, sure.

Indeed, Guacamelee! is cross-buy either way.

Really looking forward to picking up Guacamelee and Virtues Last Reward today!

Is there any word on whether Terraria will be out before May?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:12

There’s a fair bit going on, so I can’t confirm any window for it yet. Fred will have something on the Blog as soon as everything is finalised.


worst update ever usa get all the best stuff the people who do the stuff for the store have to stop favoring usa !

DoYouLikeMyID 10 April, 2013 @ 15:06

Sorry for double posting, I just forgot to mention that I can’t wait to try out Virtue’s Last Reward. :D

ste_the_legend 10 April, 2013 @ 15:07

Quiet week but Guacamelee looks pretty good.


What a terrible week :(

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:14

Try Guacamelee and then get back to us :D. It’s really quite good.

(But I’m excited about Jetstream Sam DLC. Woo!)


hi jawad just a few questions:

1. Any news update on playstation all stars battle royale DlC for April/may?

2. Any news on Yu-Gi-Oh coming to psn E.U.

3. can you ask your team to kindly try and bring us the rest of the Destruction Derby series from ps1 and ps2. Sony should find this easy as they already hold the license to these games.

4. Do you have any news of sacred citadel?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:17

1. Nothing to share on PSASBR.
2. Nada on this one, either.
3. Not on the cards yet – it may already have been looked into but didn’t pan out.
4. Possibly next week if the wizards permit.

GenocideHeart 10 April, 2013 @ 15:07

Hey now, ElfMageBex, USA didn’t get Virtue’s Last Reward which is a hell of a game. But that’s admittedly the only good thing in this update.


Hey Jawad, will the LBP Karting DLC be cross compatible with LBP 2? Thanks!

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:21

You should get the costumes for LBP2 and LBP Vita with this.

Nightmare966 10 April, 2013 @ 15:08

Nothing for me this week it seems… Although I’m intersted in the Rising DLC, I’m broke lol

BTW, who came up with the animated icon for the sale? It’s surprised me :P

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:26

The imaginative guys in the Ops team.


Hi,Jawad. Will we get Ninja Gaiden I and II like US store?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:29

One for Tecmo to announce, I believe. I would expect it but have no confirmation.


usa get season passes for games more dlc then uk so yes they do get a better update

Lost faith in SCEE bringing playstation Mobile to sweden here and the total lack of support for PSVITA which have bought twice since release, so much that I lost faith in Sony completely

So both my PS3 and PSVita have been sold. And i will never go back to Sony land in Europe.

Quit when you can guys.


“International Snooker
Availability: Not available in Australia, Denmark, Finland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine”
Doesn’t sound very international to me.

It might be a quiet week, but Guacamelee will take up a lot of my time, and I’ll give virtue’s last reward a shot too

Slightly off topic but can I vote Demon’s souls for IGC. It was just added to IGC in the US and would love to have this added here also.

Hitman & Demon’s souls = Best IGC month ever


The getaway ps2 classic on psn please.

Maken Shao was suppose to be put on these stores today: Denmark, Finland, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Ukraine.

Was it updated? :)

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:31

It has indeed been added to all regions (minus Turkey). Enjoy!

When is Terraria comming for the EU Ps Store????


Any word on the demo for Soul Sacrifice? It’s quite terrible watching how little the game is promoted seeing that it is the only Vita retail release till autumn and how well SCEJ managed to promote it. Also seeing how MH3 sold recently, it seems that there is an audience for these types of games.

Also, I think Chris mentioned last month that there might be Sleeping Dogs DLC sale this month. Is that still happening?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:33

Demo is incoming. Get hype!

Will we ever see Terraria on the eu playstation store?

Starting to get a bit sick and tired of games not being available only for the eu store with absolutely no explanation…..

And Counter Strike Global Offensive?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:35

Explanation is above on first post.

Artemisthemp 10 April, 2013 @ 15:15

Happy to get Virtue’s Last Reward (EU), so I can platinum this game again, but I wonder when Denmark will see Youtube and Netflix app for Vita.

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:36

YouTube is out for Denmark today!

Machinima and Nun attack? Any status?

28# It says under the psvita content that youtube will be available for Denmark with todays update.


No Ucharted 3 DLC ? No Tomb Raider DLC … please explain :(

Guacamelee seems awesome!

Please, add LEGEND OF DRAGOON (psx)…. Number 4 in US PSX March best sellers!!

An year ago US got it and we still don’t :P

Coody-Baroody 10 April, 2013 @ 15:21


Any updates on the feedback (you replied to btw) about the stores messy DLC cataloguing? PLEASE cant you just put ALL games under an “ALL PS3 ADD-ON BY GAMES TITLE A-Z?” That way we can get to whatever games DLC we are after in a click or 2 instead of the TERRIBLE way it is now?

It doesn’t even have that option in the GAMES section. How can you SERIOUSLY not think to put in an A-Z of the games? We could then find the games gamepage and there would be all its DLC!

The US store has it so again Jawad, WHY CANT OURS HAVE IT????

Just so you know where Im coming from (and every single other EU PS3 gamer btw) Jawad, you yourself go and try to find a DLC pack for say…..Uncharted 2. Go on mate, you go try and find the dlc packs for Uncharted2 and then let me know how you did it?

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:41

There are times when things are a bit out of order. The guys who set up the store are always looking at ways to improve it. They’re just not going to be overnight fixes.


This just takes the biscuit the US GOT FATAL FRAME but we dont?! do we ever get anything?

brother-arms 10 April, 2013 @ 15:25

RISING dlc for me, a little pricer than i hoped but if you but Metal Gear in a piece of dlc its a day one buy for me :P

Oh and forgot about Terraria… Yet another game you will lose ALOT on and give alot of sales to the Xbox360.

I’m starting to get annoyed about there not being Terraria on the store yet. If I have to keep waiting I’m not even going to bother buying the game -_-

TheBigBoss0001 10 April, 2013 @ 15:28

Hi Jawad, can you answer my question please:

When are we supposed to get new PS1 classics to the store? Only ONE game has been released in almost 3 and a half months, compared to 13 in North America!? I’m ready to pay if you only put a couple of classics up, but clearly there is nobody working on this? So please, can we expect anything (true classics!) in the next couple of weeks?

Finka_Karfein 10 April, 2013 @ 15:28

Hi Jawad!
Fancy giving a hint when can we expect Chrono Cross in EU Store?
And at least subtitled imports of HD Collection, Kenzan!, 5 and 2 PSP games from Yakuza series?


Still no Terraria???
Also disappointed we didn’t get Project Zero like the American store did

jorispelgrom 10 April, 2013 @ 15:31

Do you know that the Marvel Arcade Pack DLC for LBP Vita isn’t visible in the PS Store on the Vita? It can only be found via the online store or the in-game ‘Store’ option in LBP Vita.

SiborgSimoSctlnd 10 April, 2013 @ 15:32

The games I’ve been looking forward to most on PSN: Bit.TRIP Runner 2, Terreria and CounterStrike Global Offensive. Well done Sony. I might switch to XBOX instead of PS4.


Any update on Terraria?

Youtube now for Norway? We’ve had that for a few weeks now ;-)

RagingAvatar 10 April, 2013 @ 15:35

Just wanted to pop in to say that Guacamelee is fantastic! Everyone should buy it!

Still no Terraria!!! Get on that! Hugely disappointed, SCEE Have screwed up big time!

Which version of Guacamelee do I need to purchase in order to benefit from cross-buy? Or does it not matter?
I only ask as the store doesn’t say and I’m aware that with games like Sly Cooper, if you purchased the Vita version you didn’t get cross-buy.

Jawad Ashraf 10 April, 2013 @ 16:47

Both are Cross-Buy.


This is kinda off-topic, but I dunno where else to post this, so here: Description of some DLCs misses on important thing – region version (you know, those “BCES/BLES-0011” numbers), which is very important stuff.

Anyway, today’s sale is excellent, really awesome prices :-) alredy purchased Hitman trilogy, Splinter Cell trilogy and Crysis 3.


Well, if you go to youtube on your Vita browser you’ll find that the format of the site has changed significantly. All you are missing now is the app icon on the Vita’s homescreen.
