‘Heads-up’ PlayStation Store update, 12th June 2013

It’s E3 week and there’s a lot of excitement going around, with tons of new reveals that I’m sure you’re all talking about. Unlucky for me, I was unable to go – who else would write up today’s Store post, right? In any case, we’ve a major release this week that I know many of you are looking forward to.

The Last of Us is finally available from June 14th, riding a wave of huge critical acclaim. Survive in a brutal world beautifully crafted by the team at Naughty Dog. Embark on a journey with Joel and Ellie, where life and death decisions have to be made and see how their relationship unfolds in a superbly narrated story.

Every PS3 owner should definitely experience this game, and if you want my advice then play this on Hard difficulty with Listen Mode turned off ;). I expect nothing less from our readers.

Before Lightning Returns next February, Square Enix releases Final Fantasy XIII-2 onto PS Store. What does the future hold? Adventure through time with Serah and Noel to find out. Tame monsters and reset time to see events unfold in a number of ways.

Check out PS Store for update to the E3 sale, as well as some of the E3 trailers for many upcoming additions to the PlayStation family.

Stunned the last of us is 50% more expensive in Europe when compared to the UK. That just seems totally extreme.

DiscworldDeath 12 June, 2013 @ 14:36

I think The Last of Us Availability: Germany Only is probably a mistake :p

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 14:40

Woops, will get this corrected :)


KATAMARI DAMACY on PS2 classics? Will it ever come out in EU? It’s been on the US store over six weeks…Should I keep hoping or can you put me out of my misery Jawad?

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 14:41

I don’t have anything to share on it unfortunately, sorry. I don’t think that one even came out in EU even in the PS2 days.

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 14:41

You are. In fact, some may have already been put up there.

My Vita is getting shy with all the attention you’re giving it.

hay any idea about ALL THE EA ONLINE PASSES THAT ARE NOW FREE ON THE PS STORE IN THE US? As they should be free for every1 now?

And if u do not know about it – http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion /EA-Online-Pass-Content-Now-Free/m-p/19122048#M2015169

and – http://m.uk.ign.com /articles/2013/05/30/ea-online-pass-content-now-free

BIG ERROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Last of Us
Price: £39.99/€59.99

please use xe.com or google to convert 40gbp to eur again. its 47€ not 60€

Player42791 12 June, 2013 @ 14:42

Any idea when the EA online passes are getting scrapped in europe?

When will we get Ratched Gladiator?

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 14:52

Unknown at the moment. Sorry.

What about the PS+ Instant games Collection update? :)

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 14:56

Those will also be updated today :)

Gilgamesh29 12 June, 2013 @ 14:44

Awesome that Hatsune Miku Project Diva F is coming out over here! :)

supersmith2500 12 June, 2013 @ 14:44

What about the new Plus games LBP Karting, XCOM and Uncharted 3?

windsorblue01 12 June, 2013 @ 14:46

what about the online passes from EA they are now free on the U.S. store for some of the older games

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 14:55


I read somewhere PS plus was getting U3, Xcom and LBB: Karting today? Or is ot just a rumour? (I know US store are getting it but I read we were too

Tender_Brans0n 12 June, 2013 @ 14:46

Portal 2 In Motion DLC shows up with 10% Plus discount instead of the 40% mentioned, could you please fix this?


littlebigplanet (search for it written like this) and xcom are free in the store already, you need to go to their game pages from the search in ps3 store or web store. uncharted 3 isnt there yet afaik.

Wait, what? Why do we have to pay for Tekken Revolution? Does Sony/Namco/whoever is responsible for this just hate Germans or is there a semi-decent excuse for this?

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:49

It is 16 rated so we cannot release it for free there, thus it is bundled with a charged item. However, as you are a Plus subscriber you should see the free SKU in Plus.

Stonesthrow 12 June, 2013 @ 14:47

Last of us only releasing in 2 days out here :( I’ll be getting the Resi evil outfits.


The Last of Us for 39.99 GBP? Hopefully that’s not an error and is a sign of sensible digital launch prices to come :-)
Either way cannot wait to play it.

ghettokid1987 12 June, 2013 @ 14:48

What about Uncharted 3 (single player) for PS Plus-memebers in the Instant game collection ?

X Com and LBP Karting are available, exсept Uncharted 3.


What the hell?? No South Park avatars??



is …

Last Of us 20% more expensive in SPAIN compared to UK ??? We have crisis too sony stop scamming europe NOW …. And give us the good price too.

Rancid_Undead 12 June, 2013 @ 14:49

I’ll be downloading all the Vita games. Thanks.


Cheers for the speedy response Jawad…no, DAMACY never came out here, which is why I’m so hot for it! Does that mean the PS2 classics part of the store only contains things that were released here? Is it a certification issue? Should I just give in and ebay a US PS2 and a retail copy? I really want that rolling craziness!!


Hi when are we getting last DLC for borderlands 2. i thought it was june


Is the last of us available to download from the actual store or only through the “content installer” its created. Guessing theres no way to pre load?

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:48

I believe Content Installer is the only way, but I may need to dig into it.


Any news on an any upcoming Uncharted 3 DLC Discounts ???!!!


For those wondering about the PS Plus update: Search the store for those games, and you’ll see that they are already there.


Wow, I was hoping the Vita would finally get a new game with E3 and all, but no. It got even worse. Not a single thing for Vita? DLC does not count. At least five weeks went by now without a new big title for Vita.
How about bringing some japanese games to Europe? Or at least some that are already released in America.

Or PS Mobile to Switzerland and Austria?

Or Music Unlimited

Or Video Unlimited

Or the Youtube-App for Vita (Switzerland/Austria)

When are we finally getting our moneys worth? We paid just as much as everybody else, but only half the Services…


The Last of Us
Price: £39.99/€59.99

There is some sort of mistake here I think. Shouldn’t be something like 47 or 48 €?

Anyway I look forward to Project Diva F.

When is Malta getting a PS Store? We have been waiting since 2007. Now with PS4 we cannot even play online because we cannot buy PS Plus! Paying full price for a console and only get half of the features is extremely un fair.

Sony fix this mess please. An informative reply would be appreciated.

DiscworldDeath 12 June, 2013 @ 14:53

BTW, we getting a PSP sale update as well?

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:48

Next week.

will the network pass be included in the digital copy of TLOU?

LiquidSolid 12 June, 2013 @ 14:54

I said it on the E3 sale blog but great job advertising the indie sale.

stargateheaven 12 June, 2013 @ 14:54

No vita content at all? where is TORO FRIEND NETWORK!!

and 2nd.. whats with germans having to pay for tekken revolution? im not german, just wondering..

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:50

See above reponse – it’s an age gating issue.

Wont we be able to pre-load The Last Of Us before release? If not, thats pretty bad, since not everybody got a super fast connection.

Artemisthemp 12 June, 2013 @ 14:55

Why ain’t EU getting South Park, HDN Victory or Watch Dogs Avatars?

ghettokid1987 12 June, 2013 @ 14:56

“For those wondering about the PS Plus update: Search the store for those games, and you’ll see that they are already there.”

Exсept Uncharted 3(single player), atleast in Russia and UK.


Hi Jawad, can we get those awesome Watch_Dogs avatars that the US store has, pretty please?

shaolinsword 12 June, 2013 @ 14:58

Why are Germany being charged for a Free to Play game?

KnightOfSorrowDC 12 June, 2013 @ 14:58

Jawad Ashraf i cant wait for Hatsune Miku Project Diva F i love these anime games and i am so getting a PS4 wooop


urgh, might as well have gone Jawad because this is nothing to stay home and write about. I would have thought this week it would have been chock-a-block but nope, not it Europe. Still no Toro Friend Network for PSVita and what’s happening with the EA online pass being made available for free as they were in the US yesterday? Or is the EA online pass abandonment only applicable to the US audiences?

Another great E3 for SCEA another disappointing week for SCEE. Can you chase up if we are able to unlock the Killzone Mercenary beta in the E3 home space and what’s happening with the dynamic theme rewards. Completed all the quests and still not able to dl the Destiny,Beyond, and last of US dynamic themes.

AlphaSpookster 12 June, 2013 @ 14:59

Any chance of the baldurs gate series coming to the store??


Please, Just please, tell me that new Vita games are on the horizon. I.e next two months. Not just minis and Indies (loveable as much as they are) or the few ports we already know about (like TWD, epic Mikey or Jak & Dexter).

I start to feel that Sony is treating the Vita as a remote device for the PS4 rather than an independent gaming console. I’d like a reassurance that’s not the case.

AbzziThaMan 12 June, 2013 @ 14:59

Hey Jawad,

Do you anything about if the PS2 game “Ty the tasmanian tiger 2: bush rescue” is going to available on the PS store any time soon?

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:51

Not on my schedule.

Thanks jawad ill start downloading the videos when i see them :)

The dark sorcerer just must be saved to ps3 :)


Hey Jawad, if certain DLC for FFXIII-2 is not included in the bundle pack, why i can’t get them separately? There’s only that bundle online o_O

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:51

You can get all DLC separately – they’re also reduced in price.

Hi Jawad,

About two, three months ago the PSOne classic Hogs of War launched in the American Store. Do you know if it’s coming to Europe or would you kindly ask the publisher if they want to bring it to Europe (even the import US version would be great).

Jawad Ashraf 12 June, 2013 @ 15:52

There aren’t plans to release in EU yet.
