Our #playstationmemories sale is still going on and there’s one more week left for the PS3 leg of the promotion. Speaking of promotions, lots of other titles will be also go on offer in our Summer Festival sale, which I know many of you were patiently waiting for. That’s not all, we’re also holding a Need for Speed franchise sale, too where a whole host of NFS content has been discounted.

Lastly, PlayStation Plus has new content shuffling in, which now includes EA’s Need for Speed Most Wanted, Lego Lord of the Rings for Vita and more besides.

Awesome month for plus thanks SCEE!

Now start the complaining in…

JammieDodgerz 31 July, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   2

I have no clue why we haven’t seen Rachet: Gladiator? It’s the exact same as the U.S version just with a different name. I don’t understand the delay.

Thank you for the update anyhow! 🙂

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 3:12 pm    

    Not totally true.

    There are some technical issues with it. There may be another update soon, but please don’t get your hopes too high.

Voodoo341 31 July, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   3

I thought Superfrog and Narco were both to get PS+ discounts?

Nightmare966 31 July, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   4

Good week for me: Martian Manhunter and the Plus titles as well 😀

Jamesyp00 31 July, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   5

No chance of that cheap Max Payne 3 or Defiance then?
Will the stores be this much different when the PS4 rolls out?

Rusworch 31 July, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   6

I guess it’s time I just give up on Legend of Dragoon being added at all.
Oh well.


any news on the Japanese voices for Dynasty Warriors 8? Any Dynasty Warriors 8 avatars perhaps?

also asked on another blog post but doubtful it will be seen or have a response. is there any reason why the recent blog posts aren’t updating?

this is what recent posts show for me

1. Stealth Inc sneaks onto PlayStation 3 and PS Vita tomorrow
2. LittleBigPlanet update: Contraption Challenge 18 results!
3. The making of Castle of Illusion HD – new video
4. Atomic Ninjas first gameplay trailer released
5. Do Not Fall drops onto PS3 this week

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 3:17 pm    

    Some DW8 stuff is scheduled for the coming weeks so look forward to those 🙂

    Strange – It’s more something Fred would know but he’s MIA. I’m seeing it fine on my end (same as a consumer would see it). Perhaps clear your cache and see if that works.

Hexahedronaut 31 July, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   8

Afternoon hope your having a good day Jawad having to work outside in this rain has sucked today so it’s good to come home to a great update all 3 ps3 plus games, cloudberry kingdom and bio shock infinite for me. If you have any info could I ask for a status report on runner 2? I bought the American version but getting a dollar card was so much hassle and I really want the DLC for it.

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 3:20 pm    

    From my sources, it should be available pretty soon. Like, real soon… fingers crossed, yep?


Was going to get pixeljunk but it’s showing as £9.99 on the store for me and not £7.99.
Is the blog post price incorrect or the store price?

Got the Vita Plus games but no sign of the PS3 games yet…

MASPALOMAZ 31 July, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   10

nice one, thug 😀

CyberDarg 31 July, 2013 @ 3:11 pm   11

Will we be getting the GTA V Avatars that the US store have got?

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 3:22 pm    

    There will be two available. Not sure if they are the same as the US.


Superfrog HD, PS+ and Bioshock DLC (season pass) for me! Still waiting for DLC sale.

Domino2097 31 July, 2013 @ 3:12 pm   13


SwingerE11 31 July, 2013 @ 3:12 pm   14

mafia ii ain’t appearing as free on the web store

Dr-abdulelah 31 July, 2013 @ 3:12 pm   15

hello Jawad Ashraf
LEGO The Lord of the Rings ( ps vita )
still not available in saudi arabia playstation store
thank you 🙂

Asmerith 31 July, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   16

No PixelJunk Monsters HD in Australia? That makes me sad 🙁 What’s the reason why just out of curiosity?

NewDust 31 July, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   17

Hey Jawad,

Nice store update, with some great sales!
About those sales… Sometimes I want to make use of an offer, but I can’t because I got the item already for free with my PS+ subbscription. Because bought content is also playable after my subscription ends (don’t worry though, have been PS+ since day one and have no intend of ending this). But also I sometimes want to support a developer by buying their stuff when I liked it. Could you ask the Store/UI team if this possibly could be made available?

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 3:29 pm    

    Unfortunately this isn’t possible. It is set up so you are entitled to the free content of the month. It’s nice of you to want to support them further, though 🙂 You could always set up a secondary account for that purpose if you so wished.

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   18

After the very disappointing Summer Sale that has virtually nothing for PSVita, we get the just as bad Lego game on PSVita this month.

Ah well at least the last couple of months were good on the IGC for PSVita…

And I’ll buy Superfrog HD from Team17 as I already played that on my Amiga 500. A full blown level editor for the PSVita for that game too, cross buy only for that money, great deal. Will buy it today.

And the PS3 content on IGC side is good too, I’ll play NFS for sure.

So SCEE, partly thanks, for the PS3 IGC, and Superfrog HD, maybe I will thank you some more if the big Summer Sale really gets worth it mid August when you’ll update it with great content and not the weak stuff that is in there now for 2 weeks.

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   19

Please comment on next Soul Sacrifice DLC and Deadpool DLC.

CreditDue 31 July, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   20

Where are the GTAV avatars?

Deadpool0666 31 July, 2013 @ 3:15 pm   21

Good update 🙂 Could I ask about PS2 classics? I was wondering now that the new Star Wars battlefront has been announced, would we see the original Star Wars battlefront (1 & 2) out on the store at some point? I loved those games and I have wanted them since the ps2 classics section was opened. Thanks 🙂

IvanFoul 31 July, 2013 @ 3:15 pm   22

I bought Monsters this morning for £9.99, have I been overcharged? Either way, completely worth it.

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 3:39 pm    

    Sorry, this is indeed £9.99 and the post above will be amended ASAP!

tomtvdale 31 July, 2013 @ 3:16 pm   23

When is Spelunky coming to Vita? I was expecting it today as it has been advertised as July. I can’t wait to play it!

Maddy01 31 July, 2013 @ 3:16 pm   24

Yeah, where are the GTAV avatars? Come on, Sony! You’ve pulled them off last week, and the USA already have m’

xX_HOJAT_Xx 31 July, 2013 @ 3:18 pm   25

hey Jawad , why PS plus is 64.99 USD on UAE PS store but 48.99 USD on USA PS store , what’s the difference , while both are in USD ?


Do you think that any of the thatgamecompany games will be either going on Plus or receiving any discounts. Also would love to see Pixeljunk shooter 1/2 on there!

Well done on the awesome update this month!


Superfrog? As in the old Amiga game? Cool!

Is it not cross buy then? I guess not because it doesn’t say. If it was cross buy I’d buy it immediately.
The sort of game I’d like to play at home on the TV, but also take with me sometimes.

What about size? How big would the Vita version be?

Cheers, and thanks.

Orangegamer1 31 July, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   28

Hey Jawad, I know you have been asked many questions as of right now, but I was just wondering if the Store is actually updated?

Sadly, the Store for me has not been updated on PSN and Web Store for the Plus Games.

Was hoping to play them over this month D:

Carnivius_Prime 31 July, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   29

Hm, was going to buy Superfrog but after seeing pics of it I’m not so sure now. The Amiga version had nicer graphics.

CrookedWings 31 July, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   30

Hey Jawad, Lego Lord of the Rings isn’t available at the Israeli Playstation Store either.

Just out of curiosity, will we get a different game instead?

fungame20 31 July, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   31

Will we ever see some ps1 or ps2 at some point i mean its great to see same classic games like rayman for the vita but I want to see more of the old games like suikoden etc.

turbogeek421 31 July, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   32

Man! I’d have preferred NBA 2K13 over Spec Ops: The Line!

Still one of the best PS+ updates to date!

helder-paulino 31 July, 2013 @ 3:23 pm   33

I can’t find none of the games for free for PS+, I have the games that were free last month

SwingerE11 31 July, 2013 @ 3:24 pm   34

non of the IGC’s have been updated

ShogunDarius 31 July, 2013 @ 3:24 pm   35

We likely to see Grandia, Black Rock Shooter or Atelier Totori Plus go on sale anytime soon?

TINTINTB303 31 July, 2013 @ 3:24 pm   36

Does anyone know if Mafia 2 was ever patched?!? I bought it about 18 months ago and could never play past chapter 13 [“chop chop”] due to an infinite loading screen. 🙁

MASPALOMAZ 31 July, 2013 @ 3:24 pm   37


Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 3:24 pm   38

Is it really so hard to ask about Soul Sacrifice DLC for which compatibility patch been out for a week? And Deadpool DLC which is out in US now? I want more Deadpool…

Dem-ON555 31 July, 2013 @ 3:25 pm   39

Great update,
But when can we expect “Lego Lord of the rings”? The game itself is not even available in PS Store.


When can we expect this update to be live? To save me checking the store constantly :3

bradigor1981 31 July, 2013 @ 3:25 pm   41


Will we be seeing Nikoli Puzzle V Slitherlink in the EU store at any point? The US got it this week and it was one of the games I was most looking forward to.

Hexahedronaut 31 July, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   42

Thanks for the reply so yep fingers crossed!.

PTlls0ulHunt3rll 31 July, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   43

Why the europe don’t have the NBA2k13!!! OMG INJUSTICE!!!

belkin74 31 July, 2013 @ 3:27 pm   44

is this todays update coz there is nothing new on the UK store yet???

MaxRstar 31 July, 2013 @ 3:28 pm   45

superfrog for me <3

MaxiM_82 31 July, 2013 @ 3:29 pm   46

I guess TORO’s Friend Network is too much to ask?

    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 4:51 pm    

    I have mentioned this in past weeks. There aren’t plans at the moment. If things change we will update you.

hilts663 31 July, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   47

Hello, is the Store Update today or what? Who do I have to (CENSORED) to get the price lowered for The Line?

Reality_palez 31 July, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   48

How about the Godfather 2

INS1GHTFUL 31 July, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   49

I think I know the answer already, but will pixeljunk monsters be crossbuy? I bought it on PS3 and PSP already. I would happily play it again on vita but tough to justify buying for a third time.

Light_23-LCie 31 July, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   50

Oooo GoW DLC~ I got CE on monday and im really really loving multiplayer. Really don’t see all the hate. That said i’v played all GoW games xD

As for updates it be cool to be able to download PS+ content. Can’t seem to find it >.< hehe

BiosNova 31 July, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   51

The PixelJunk Monsters ultimate HD price is showing as £9.99 on the store, it says £7.99 here

INS1GHTFUL 31 July, 2013 @ 3:30 pm   52

Is the rayman pre-order price a discount on what it will be when it actually releases?


Good update but I don’t appreciate being made wait a whole month for Rayman Legends 😛

Any news on when we might see Spelunky HD on the PS3 and Vita?
I thought it was meant to be July but any information on when we might see it would be appreciated.


Just wondering, but will Persona 4 arena ever be released on the European ps store? Or does anyone know the reason why it hasn’t or ever will be.

hayzink 31 July, 2013 @ 3:32 pm   55

is there some gremlins at play on the store today or something as by this time of day the plus stuff is usually avalible via the search function?

last time i saw this was the update where the store was not fixed till next day.

TINTINTB303 31 July, 2013 @ 3:33 pm   56

When is the store updating (PS+ stuff)?! Not even the usual early web store has updated!!

ThugETH 31 July, 2013 @ 3:35 pm   57

Any info on release dates for:

Frozen Synapse Tactics (awesome been playing it on my tab!)
Lone Survivor

Any info at all?

Electrical_Angel 31 July, 2013 @ 3:35 pm   58

@Jawad Ashraf – wheres the GTAV avatars ? i dont see why US can get them & we dont…

Liam2349 31 July, 2013 @ 3:35 pm   59

Hi Jawad, would it be possible to get some Rockstar Games avatars on the store? I’d really love to have something like this:

(Link is to official Rockstar Games website)

Please let me know if there are any plans for this.

YNA_p4u7 31 July, 2013 @ 3:36 pm   60

Hi Jawad,

Could it be possible that Europe could get Atelier avatars please? it would be great if you could bring those over here 😀
Those avatars are available on the US PSN Store as well as the Japanese Store too.

Voodoo341 31 July, 2013 @ 3:37 pm   61

In reply to post 16 in the Summer Festival update Chris Howe stated Superfrog HD would have a 20% discount. The update doesn’t mention any discount. Who’s in error? (don’t bother deleting Chris Howe’s post, I’ve screen captured it)

On another point will we ever get an update that isn’t full of mistakes and errors?

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 3:37 pm   62

@Jawad Ashraf Thank you for replying. I take it it’s not yet the time for either Soul Sacrifice or Deadpool new DLC. I’ll take Bioshock Infinite DLC then, I have season pass.
I’m almost glad there’s more time before new Soul Sacrifice DLC: I’m trying to beat Black Siegfried in Lord of Apocalypse on Vita. I officially hate this cheap bastard.

ZoeyYukio 31 July, 2013 @ 3:37 pm   63

None of the IGC titles have been updated :/

helder-paulino 31 July, 2013 @ 3:38 pm   64

The store in Portugal isn’t updated yet, how long do we have to wait to get the PS+ content?

Razgriz375 31 July, 2013 @ 3:38 pm   65

Great! Definitely going to check out PJ’s Monsters. Now I’d just like to see a release of their Shooter and Shooter 2 onto the Vita, it’d be a great game to play on the move!

HazelAM 31 July, 2013 @ 3:40 pm   66

given When Vikings Attack is a cross buy title, will Plus subscribers be getting the PS3 version as well as the Vita version?

GhostRiderzElite 31 July, 2013 @ 3:40 pm   67

@ jaward any idea what time tomorrow blk ops 2 new map pk available from thx.


We need more NIS avatars like the USA has and we also need JP voice dlc for soul sacrifice.. Please it cannot be so hard when USA has all these juicy things.. -_-

bravo9zero 31 July, 2013 @ 3:45 pm   69

Shame PixelJunk Monsters HD isn’t £7.99, that’s a great price!
Got really Excited when I saw that 🙁

How come US get a 20% PS+ discount and we don’t!!!!

TheHmmisee 31 July, 2013 @ 3:46 pm   70

Aus store hasn’t update 🙁

Rubentjhee 31 July, 2013 @ 3:48 pm   71

Still not updated ): (Europe)

alimik95 31 July, 2013 @ 3:49 pm   72

Amazing update guys thanks 😀
Sorry to sound like a broken record but is it possible in anyway to bring Dino Crisis 1&2 to the Eu store ? 😀

S1X_K1LL3R 31 July, 2013 @ 3:50 pm   73

Any chance of Fifa 13 price being reduced?

Roxas598 31 July, 2013 @ 3:50 pm   74

anything on Yugioh Decade Duels?

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 3:50 pm   75

Damn I can find Superfrog HD on the PSVita PSN store, but not yet on the PS3 PSN store.

And it says on PSVita PSN store to buy the PS3 version and get the PSVita version for free… Not sure if it also works the other way around so will wait till PS3 store updates. But I want it already!

When Vikings Attack and Lego bad version of the game is in PSVita store too. You gotta use search though with title of the game

Thesnipergecko 31 July, 2013 @ 3:51 pm   76

Superfrog HD is up on the Vita store already \o/


@HazelAM: yes they already confirmed that before so should get both versions Free.

Tecnoboy1 31 July, 2013 @ 3:52 pm   78

When does this go live? I want to go for a clash in the Clouds!

skells22 31 July, 2013 @ 3:53 pm   79

well, at least we know there some issues with ratchet Gladitor. i was due to take action today if no update but as you gave me a update i say thankyou. just hope we get better news on that game soon

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 3:53 pm   80

Still not updated in Russia.
Hint: guys, it updates simultaneously across SCEE regions. They’re somewhat late today.

CreditDue 31 July, 2013 @ 3:55 pm   81

Thanks for the GTAV avatar reply, Jawad. Nice to know we will be getting some

belkin74 31 July, 2013 @ 3:57 pm   82

wheres the update today in the UK??

NoddingPenguin 31 July, 2013 @ 3:58 pm   83

The store hasn’t updated but if you do a Vita store search for LEGO LOTR you can download it now.

godheit 31 July, 2013 @ 3:58 pm   84

Hi Jawad,
I know it’s a bit to early to ask, but what can we expect about the “Not available in Germany or except in Germany” situation when the PS4 arrives does it stays the same like this complete generation or will you have a solution where we can expect that this will not happen anymore?

ReZonanZ_44 31 July, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   85

@ bravo9zero

I agree with you 100%.
In the US the game has a 20% discount for ps plus members.
And when i saw the discount on the us ps blog yesterday, I was so excited and I was almost certain that the same discount was going to apply in the eu store.
Apparently not …

breakbeatkaos 31 July, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   86

Any update on the Project Zero and Project Zero II (Fatal Frame in the US) PS2 classics being put on the store, like the US have?

Also, we’ll be seeing the GTAV and Dynasty Warriors 8 avatars that the US got too?

RemyX-1988 31 July, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   87

@Jawad Ashraf,

The Plus-update for August is something that made me have an idea. The reason for that is the fact that in all territories where PlayStation Plus is available, Spec Ops: The Line is given away for free to members. However, UAE gets NBA 2k13. While I am in the Netherlands, I can positively say that I have absolutely ZERO interest in Spec Ops: The Line. NBA 2k13, however, is a game I would like to receive with my Plus-membership.

It made me wonder whether or not its possible to implement a system where in cases that this happens, I would for instance be allowed to pick NBA 2k13 instead of Spec Ops: The Line. It would make Plus even better, and the chances of everyone getting at least one game they really want would only grow bigger.


No Pixeljunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for AU/NZ?


RobinLDS 31 July, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   89

Compliments on the Sale and the Update!
But the Ratchet & Clank situation. It’s really a disgrace! First, the delay of the Vita version, and when the Vita-version finally arrived, it was a worse version, and it needs 7 GB. No think you… And now, the Gladiator hasnt arrived yet.

spurs78 31 July, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   90

Heya jawad, isnt mars war logs meant to be on eu psn today?

RemyX-1988 31 July, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   91

Personally, I must admit that the free games given with Plus are mostly catered to the typical western gamer with titles such as Saints Row: The Third, Spec Ops: The Line and Mafia II. Games in which I, as an avid fan of Japanese titles, really have no interest in. Would it be possible for more Japanese titles to be added to Plus? We got Catherine recently, but unfortunately for me, I already own that title no less than three times. And yes, all three versions I bought myself.

Hope to hear from you soon! For the rest? I guess I’ll download the Dynasty Warriors 8 DLC when I upgrade my wallet. These last few months have been quite weak for me in terms of Store content…

TheDarkOnePL 31 July, 2013 @ 4:00 pm   92

Not in POLAND either

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 4:00 pm   93

@godheit May I join your question sir in regards to Russia? I feel bad for Germany in that regard, but sometimes I can see the reason – your strict laws when it comes to 18+ games.
With Russia it’s more puzzling. Why Time and Eternity DLC is not available? Or Dynasty Warriors 8? There’s no actual reason for that.

Podyman 31 July, 2013 @ 4:02 pm   94

So let’s see… wait, i’ll turn on my PS3 aaaand… Singstar crap is still there. So, Jawad, i’m sorry. I’m not buying anything from PSN Store. Again.

zina2070 31 July, 2013 @ 4:03 pm   95

Hi Chris. already asked this on the Most Wanted page but got no response, so I’ll try again. Any chance of a Most Wanted Complete Downloadable Edition like the one for Burnout Paradise’s dlc (packs, upgrades, timesavers,etc)?
Buying all the dlc together is rather expensive, even with the ps plus discount and since both games are made by criterion I’m sure/hoping there is one planned.

RoboAddy 31 July, 2013 @ 4:03 pm   96

Just need to know if and when PJM will ever be coming to Australia.

Sadly, this was the only thing I was looking forward to this week.

AussieOutsider 31 July, 2013 @ 4:04 pm   97

Can I trade Spec Ops: The Line for NBA 2K13 Also? Had enough of shooters in PS+…

Rochala 31 July, 2013 @ 4:05 pm   98

Superfrog is supposed to be cross-buy according to the publisher. Have they change that or its just a small mistake at the blog ?

plisken1979 31 July, 2013 @ 4:05 pm   99

why does it take so long for you guys to ACTUALLY update the store? i’m on the store right now and none of what is above is on there. no free games, no discounts etc. every week it’s the same old story. if your gonna post this update on the blog, at least make sure it’s on the store and available to download. I work in the customer service trade and as soon as something appears in our handout’s to customers we make sure the items are actually in stock. I and my other fellow workmates would be in so much trouble if we did what is happening here. it’s really bad that this keeps happening and you need to rectify it.

vonhammer 31 July, 2013 @ 4:06 pm   100

NOOOOOOO! Was happy with our + update, then noticed UEA are getting NBA. NOOOOOOO!

UltraSilver64 31 July, 2013 @ 4:07 pm   101

Nice update Jawad. That’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted & Mafia II for me to try and LEGO LOTR & When Vikings Attack for me to keep!

Still waiting for Ratchet: Gladiator, like everybody else, but I know you’re trying Jawad. Technical difficulties between territories do take a while to iron out (along with translations!). But I can wait…

Just want to confirm something about When Vikings Attack: I asked Chris about if we are getting the PS3 version along with the VITA version (since they are Cross-Buy) and he confirmed it to be true.

Will this be the same for the one we are getting through IGC (we get two versions instead of one)?

Handige_Harry 31 July, 2013 @ 4:07 pm   102

Any update on the Everybody Golfs Cross game content?


Hogs of War still hasn’t been added to PS1 Classics? Why not!? The US store got this months ago, it seriously cannot be that difficult to add it on the UK store as well. I’ve seen a few threads about this and no one at Sony even responds to our comments.

Will this ever be added!?

NoobBlast 31 July, 2013 @ 4:20 pm   104

Looks like several here is never happy with their PS3. Why are you even owning it when you never get satisfied?

It does not make sense in owning something you don’t like.

Graffin_G 31 July, 2013 @ 4:21 pm   105

Hey Jawad, will we get discounts on Rocksmith tracks like they have on the US PSN Store?

Also, will we get the rest of the content for Rocksmith? We’re missing “Tighten Up” by The Black Keys and “I Hate Everything About You” by Three Days Grace. Also missing are the Blink 182 and Megadeth SongPacks (tracks are available individually but it’s cheaper as a pack). These tracks/packs are available on the XBOX in PAL regions, but never got added to the AU/EU/UK PSN Stores.

Mr_Pickle 31 July, 2013 @ 4:23 pm   106

So sad seeing that PixelJunk Monsters isn’t available in Australia. Please tell me that this is coming?

toolfan2007 31 July, 2013 @ 4:23 pm   107

Awesome plus update! Can’t wait to download them all! 🙂

cooldudematt 31 July, 2013 @ 4:28 pm   111

Can we please start to get more PSN Avatars for different games like Assassin’s Creed III, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Etc… Thanks

Nightmare966 31 July, 2013 @ 4:28 pm   112

Guys: If you want a DLC for a game with a in-game Store (ie. Injustice), check it out from there. It seems whatever issue there is lies on the new Store :/

As for Plus, we can only wait.

MoFoMedia 31 July, 2013 @ 4:30 pm   113

Hmmm, not up yet. And it’s going to take a while to download all that.

Anyone have any idea why my PS3 usually does around 30mbps while I have a 150mbps connection? Is that just the servers being slow?

Chaosprower 31 July, 2013 @ 4:31 pm   114

The Spanish store has not been updated yet (with the new games and the sales) I want to check out Superfrog.

ThreeWallzz 31 July, 2013 @ 4:32 pm   115

Yes NBA2K13 replaced MafiaII in the UAE!!!!!thank u a lot guys

nice update…

daftendirekt 31 July, 2013 @ 4:35 pm   117

Is it just me or is it looking bad for this update actually going live today? Vita stuff seems to be all available if you do a search for it but no such luck for ps3 content. Oh well, wait and see I suppose.

Grantoso 31 July, 2013 @ 4:37 pm   118

Still no info on Russian release of The Walking Dead 400 Days DLC???
TTG are ignoring us on their forum =(

Chaosprower 31 July, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   119

@daftendirekt I can’t see the Vita suff either, even with search. It’s probably updating slowly across regions.

MASPALOMAZ 31 July, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   120

No DLC for Bioshock Infinite thru ingame menu, but the title update is already there… (why i was so stupid to buy the season pass i will never know )

They should probably do the store update on tuesday, or just keep doing it like now but say its on august 1st… 😉

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 4:40 pm   121

@Grantoso I’ll just won’t buy any Telltale future stuff on principle. Just do the same. What [DELETED].
There are far, far too many games in this oversaturated market to tolerate [DELETED] like that.

TINTINTB303 31 July, 2013 @ 4:40 pm   122

Yup the servers must be slow. I got a 32Mbit connection, but the PS3 most of the times doesn’t get over 10 to 15Mbps.

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 4:45 pm   125

SCEE should move store update to tuesday. It’s not really acceptable that in this day and age EU PS store is always 1 day late. As such everything in Europe is exclusive to PC and xbox for a day. ALWAYS.
Idiots, really.

daftendirekt 31 July, 2013 @ 4:49 pm   126

@Chaosprower Hmm…that’s unfortunate. Are you accessing the store through Vita or PS3? Content appears to show through the Vita store but not through the PS3 one. I was under the impression that the storefront update simultaneously across all regions but I may be wrong.

Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 4:49 pm   127

We’re currently experiencing some technical issues with the updates displaying on the various store fronts. Our technical team are on the case and should have this fixed shortly.

TheHmmisee 31 July, 2013 @ 4:50 pm   128

Thanks for the update, hopefully soon actually means really soon!

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 4:51 pm   129

Jawad, can you tell me if I buy the Superfrog HD game on PSVita, that I get the PS3 version for free later?

Or does it only work the other way around, buying PS3 version gives PSVita game for free?

If it works both ways, I’ll buy it on the PSVita now and PS3 later when the technical issues are fixed…

supersmith2500 31 July, 2013 @ 4:51 pm   130

It’s ok, got the Vita PS+ content and it will keep me busy tommorow. Going to download the PS3 plus games on Friday anyways or later if fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

Stonesthrow 31 July, 2013 @ 4:51 pm   131

Got NFS Most wanted not too long ago so own everything in the IGC once again ><.. NBA 2K13 would've been a nice surprise but isn't available here apparently.
Weak store update again too.. Calm before the next gen storm? Back to Halo 4 for now I guess.

supersmith2500 31 July, 2013 @ 4:51 pm   132

*for the rest of the night,

Voodoo341 31 July, 2013 @ 4:52 pm   133

Will SCEE continue with this level of service with the PS4? Especially when you consider everyone who wants to play online will be paying for it! I really can’t see it improving.

Hexahedronaut 31 July, 2013 @ 4:52 pm   134

4:50 still no update not even on the web store sigh I really wish SCEE and SCEA where one we wouldn’t have these constant problems.

Random127 31 July, 2013 @ 4:55 pm   135

Thanks for the update Jawad. Its just typical the day I really want to play something on PS+ the store has issues and the update appears later than it has in a long time.

I want to play some Spec Ops…

@125 EU store used to be updated before the US, then they changed the update days around and the US got their update a day early. I guess been after the EU update made them feel inferior

funnydude6556 31 July, 2013 @ 4:57 pm   136

Not to insult anyone but I always thought the store went live at 5-5:30 PM and it’s 4:55 at the moment but yeah after the last few updates I can’t imagine I’ll be playing the Bioshock DLC today.

Also thanks for addressing the situation Jawad. I know we can’t expect you to do anything about this but it’s good for you guys to at least address that there is a problem and that your working on it.

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 4:59 pm   137

@Random127 They ARE meant to be inferior. They pay way less and Sony consoles are way less popular in US. But Sony is full of it. They remind me of Nokia in some aspects…

Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 5:00 pm   138

Updates are beginning to show up now.


Is something else going to replace tomb raider summer festival sale?

MASPALOMAZ 31 July, 2013 @ 5:02 pm   140

While at technical difficulties, the blog still loads forever on Opera and Firefox, says something about “” this is happening on firefox and opera so i guess all browsers. Thx for the updates on the store 😉


store not updated yet why !?

MASPALOMAZ 31 July, 2013 @ 5:05 pm   142

Spec Ops the Line in fact is now free for PLUS in store, the other two games not yet at least for me

Nightmare966 31 July, 2013 @ 5:05 pm   143

@Jawad: Indeed! I can finally see the LBP DLC and the Bioshock one 😀 Thanks for updating us.

Lord_Gremlin 31 July, 2013 @ 5:08 pm   145

@funnydude6556 Well, I don’t know about you but if I won’t be playing new Bioshock DLC today I’m canceling my PS4 preorder. Still about 1 hour left to call before that store closes, so who knows.
I’m not sure why people are so forgiving. Nowadays we’re swimming in entertainment content like swine in the dirt. I myself have a backlog of over 10 titles on steam.
You already forgive a lot when you keep supporting a company that have the sheer audacity to update their storefront a day later that everyone else.

V1N666 31 July, 2013 @ 5:09 pm   146

Is Superfrog HD cross buy?

Also how big is the Vita version, so that I know how much valuable memory card space I’ll need?


    Jawad Ashraf 31 July, 2013 @ 5:14 pm    

    If you purchase the PS3 version you will get the Vita version, too.

    200MB roughly.

Voodoo341 31 July, 2013 @ 5:10 pm   147

Every week it’s the same old tired story. Broken updates and missing content. SCEE really are a mess!How can the keep getting it so wrong? It’s a serious question.. Do Sony have any plans to improve the amateurish service from SCEE before the PS4 is launched or will we have to put up with more of this rubbish? Microsoft blow Sony out of the water when it comes to level of service.

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 5:12 pm   148

Superfrog HD is cross buy, it says so in the PSVita PSN store.

But, it says: buy the PS3 version and get the PSVita version free.

Not sure if it works the other way around

Well, Bioshock DLC is up, too bad not visible from in-game store. Well, I’ve got to admit whatever issues there were you resolved em in timely and satisfactory manner. Which in turn means I’ll be spending more cash on PS3/Vita stuff in the nearest future.
Now if you’ll excuse me some sky racists are waiting to be eviscerated.

Shadowhero92 31 July, 2013 @ 5:15 pm   152

Devils_Demon 31 July, 2013 @ 5:16 pm   153

Store (on PC) still not updated here in Ireland. I’m eager to get Superfrog.

Breadd_93 31 July, 2013 @ 5:16 pm   154

Great update this week, especially so for PS Plus! The store still hasn’t been updated with any of this though :/ Surprising as it is usually updated by the latest 4pm from experience. Any ideas when it will update?

Faustofausto 31 July, 2013 @ 5:16 pm   155

TINTINTB303 31 July, 2013 @ 5:20 pm   158

The web store (especially the PS+ stuff) is usually updated in the morning. Still nothing though as I just checked! 🙁

SwingerE11 31 July, 2013 @ 5:21 pm   159

only spec ops is free, the other two hasn’t updated yet.

Stealth Inc. is broken on the Vita store. I bought it when it came out, but I can’t rate it on the store and I can’t download it from the store either. The red shopping bag and download button aren’t there and it tells me I don’t own the game when I try to download it. It works fine on the PS3 store. PLEASE FIX THIS.

New summer sale discounts are still not available on psn store in the Netherlands,seems like each week for the last few weeks the updates for the store have been a technical mess..
Really sad to see Sony slacking.

When do we get an edit function here?

Vashetti 31 July, 2013 @ 5:30 pm   171

Might be an odd request, but:

Please can we have a discount on the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed DLC?

Those extra levels (Jedi Temple, Hoth, etc.) have been on the store for years and haven’t budged from their £7.99 (each!) pricetag.

A disc version of the game called the Ultimate Sith Edition was released that included all the content but it is impossible to find at retailers nowadays.

Can you look into it pretty please?

tomtvdale 31 July, 2013 @ 5:33 pm   172

Nightmare966 31 July, 2013 @ 5:34 pm   173

@164: Seeing Rayman Origins is just 1.4GB, I don’t think it’s going to get really big.

NoobBlast 31 July, 2013 @ 5:34 pm   174

I never complain about the content updates etc, but the shop haven’t updated this late for a long time.
The only thing there, is Spec Ops which i already own on disc.

I have waited a long time for Superfrog HD, and its bad luck that it had to be released today instead of last week when the shop updated properly.

V1N666 31 July, 2013 @ 5:37 pm   175

Thanks for the reply notifying me that Superfrog will be cross buy. I’ll be buying it now for sure.
Might be an idea to make a note of it on the original post. Always nice to know when a game is cross buy.

Store hasn’t updated here yet, so couldn’t check that. Also thanks for reporting the size, always an important consideration with Vita games, so nice to know it’s just 200mb. I shouldn’t have an issue with that.

Thanks again. My only request would be in the future to note which games are cross buy in the main post, and also post file sizes beside it. I’m sure that used to happen as I used to check how big downloads were when I had slower, capped Internet. It’s still nice to be able to see right from the PSN update post. Price, cross buy, size.

Great work on the blog, very informative.
Kind regards.

Hazydaze 31 July, 2013 @ 5:37 pm   176

Please clarify. Does cross buy only work for superfrog if you purchase ps3 version( not yet on my store)
I really want this on my vita but don’t want to buy vita if it isn’t cross buy.

KaneTheGoth 31 July, 2013 @ 5:38 pm   177

I second Vashetti’s request; would love to see some Force Unleashed DLC reduced!

Hazydaze 31 July, 2013 @ 5:41 pm   178

That’s not how I read the superfrog answer. He said if you buy ps3 you get vita.
Didn’t you want to know if it was the other way round?

Arkeologen 31 July, 2013 @ 5:46 pm   185

Could you please clarify how Cross-buy works on Superfrog?
Can you buy Vita-version and get PS3 version as well, even though it does not say that?
You are complicating this Cross-buy way to much.

Any chance of getting the Z.O.E HD games separately?

zina2070 31 July, 2013 @ 7:08 pm   222

A couple of weeks/months ago you offered us God of War HD on ps+. I’ve been waiting for either God of War 2 HD or Gor of War Collection 2 to be discounted. But instead you offer the first collection that has one game that was free a couple of weeks/months ago. You could have at least offered God of War 2 HD on a discount for those of us that got the first game for free. I’ve been waiting for the remaining three GOW games to be discounted to complete my collection and also Peace Walker HD. There better be some good surprised until the end of the month because right now we’ve been somewhat let down. And where is the super dlc bundle for Most Wanted that NFS: The Run got?

Gamesgbkiller 31 July, 2013 @ 7:18 pm   223

LEGO The Lord of the Rings still not even on the store.

for other plus game you need to search the games’ names.

Lance_87 31 July, 2013 @ 7:29 pm   224

Let me guess, no Mantles of Gods for Ascension, even this week? Everything else but that has appeared on the store.

CrookedWings 31 July, 2013 @ 7:46 pm   225

Lego Lord of the Rings is not available at the Israeli Playstation Store. Could you please add it / offer a replacement?

samper-ua 31 July, 2013 @ 7:50 pm   226

Will Ukraine Plus members receive LEGO The Lord of the Rings ( ps vita )?
thank you for reply

serber_uk 31 July, 2013 @ 7:54 pm   227

nba 2k13 is not listed in UE PS+ but is free for UE too… just search for it in the store. 😉

aztex08 31 July, 2013 @ 8:00 pm   228

NBA 2k13 is free on EU STORE TOO!!!!

Roofipl 31 July, 2013 @ 8:03 pm   229

Ratched and clank gladiator has issues? haha….unless someone went and played around with the code for the game and on purpose broke the game i see no reason why it should take so long to put a game out, same with counter strike GO….. was supposed to get released nearly a year ago now then there were some “issues” which are probably NOTHING and everyone just forgot about it, no explanation no NOTHING and still its not even on the EU store, what a joke

serber_uk 31 July, 2013 @ 8:06 pm   230

of course I meant EU not UE;)

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 8:16 pm   231

NBA 2k13 indeed is also for free in the EU store

Need to use search to get to it, wasn’t at the PS+ IGC section, but it is free for the time being!

Grab it while it lasts, SCEE will pull it as soon as they can for EU

matdub69 31 July, 2013 @ 8:42 pm   232

Damn I was looking forward PixelJunk and I have been holding off playing psp version again. Why no love for Aussies and Kiwis?

Thank you guys for bring us all this games.

Do you think might be in future updates Tomb Raider, GoW:Ascension, FFXIII-2 or Tales of Graces F free for Plus users? 🙂

CrownerZ 31 July, 2013 @ 9:11 pm   235

Max Payne 3 is on sale on US, I want to get it, but am afraid it will come to PS+ on europe soon. Is there any plans on bringing it for PS+ EU ?!

Denzelio 31 July, 2013 @ 9:16 pm   236

Why no Pixeljunk Monsters vita version for Australia when we already have both psp versions? Will this game be released here in a following store update?

Any news for the game Castlestorm? It’s already been released on another platform.

slocod 31 July, 2013 @ 9:38 pm   237

Same problem here:

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is not available on Slovenian store !?!

So no Lego love for Slovenia, India, Israel, Ukraine… ?


slocod 31 July, 2013 @ 9:40 pm   238

Are we getting some replacement for that ?

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 9:44 pm   239

Have you all used the search function for Lego LOTR?

slocod 31 July, 2013 @ 10:07 pm   240


Problem is that the game is not available at all !

It was never released on our PSN Store 🙂

KarboniteKream 31 July, 2013 @ 10:13 pm   241

How come LEGO: Lord of the Rings can’t be found on the store?

TheMART 31 July, 2013 @ 10:30 pm   242


ah ok, I only found it through the search option, that is why I was asking

Did you try to get NBA 2k13 for free though? It is an error, but working I got it too

rozpedek 31 July, 2013 @ 10:38 pm   243

why Mafia 2 is without subtitles? Polish despite the fact that in Poland are sold with subtitles, so again warped services give, for the same money as any other country, why do you treat Polish users as inferior as much pay for PS +, no music service video what else Delete, like politics ps friendship player probably just their wallets

Sqnalkel_ES 31 July, 2013 @ 10:57 pm   244

What did you updated early? I lost:

Battlefield 3™
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus
Unit 13™

On, it sad it was at 12:00 midnight. I tried around 9:00 pm and the July games were already gone.

szon-pol 31 July, 2013 @ 11:05 pm   245

2 simple reasons for ya:
First) our local distributar has strange politic when it comes to PS3 games. (Cenega ssie pałe, jeśli chodzi o politykę wydawniczą na PS3 i dogadanie się z Sony)

Second): I’m sure that Sony is doing their best to improve their offer in our country (Mają nas w dupie i dopóki sami się nie upomnimy większą liczbą, to gówno zobaczymy)

Anyway, I’m reeeeally curious what you’ll make out of my post (if you even bother, that is). Cheers

shaun5557777 1 August, 2013 @ 12:34 am   246

this time last year there was a sale on cod maps i hope they go half price again soon as i missed out last time

Jordyce 1 August, 2013 @ 1:53 am   247

1. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona doesn’t have it’s proper discount applied (at least in New Zealand. It’s still full price, just with 10% off for PS+.

2. Bring back Ninja Gaiden Sigma for PS+ for New Zealanders. We only had it for three weeks while everyone else got four. That’s not fair on us (and it’s also a breach of what we paid for).

Paquete89 1 August, 2013 @ 2:20 am   248

@szon-pol: thank you for answering to your polish brother. I was going to answer him but I wouldn’t be so polite as you and I don’t speak polish 😉

By the way guys, I just tried Spec Ops and I’m liking it a lot, amazing addition to the plus catalog

PHEEliNUX 1 August, 2013 @ 2:47 am   249

I thought SCEE fixed this, But apparently not
Why is Unit 13 isn’t in our Download List anymore?

croze343 1 August, 2013 @ 3:05 am   250

NBA 2K13

Why not give them lego batman 2008 PSP edition or Gotham City Impostors?

AshishSahoo 1 August, 2013 @ 5:56 am   251

Lego LOTR is not available on Indian store. So are we getting a proper replacement Vita title? I remember Disgaea 3 was never made free for Plus users since it wasnt available in all territories, but now the same thing has been done.
Waiting for a quick resolution.

monoliet 1 August, 2013 @ 6:16 am   252

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – Vengeance ????????

Haven’t seen any sales or price changes for a long time for EU, are they only for US?

gbgamesmember 1 August, 2013 @ 8:14 am   255

Couldn’t Find LEGO LOTR and NBA2K. is it just me or you didn’t update the store yet ?

HG_Chiko 1 August, 2013 @ 8:45 am   256

Lego lord of the rings vita is not available in Turkish psn store. Also lots of people from different countries seems to have the same problem. So could anyone please fix it or get a replacement. At least please reply about this so that we know that you care

TW_DoomMachine 1 August, 2013 @ 9:02 am   257

hey Sony. once again you have quite a mess in the discount section of the store. a lot of items do not have ps+ bonus including : sly 4 and retro rampage that i actually want to buy. when can we expect a fix?

Denzelio 1 August, 2013 @ 9:30 am   258

I have great news for us Australian and New Zealand Pixeljunk Monster fans, the below is from Twitter

“@DoubleElevenLtd: @Denzelio2 @PixelJunkNews we had a ratings issue, its now resolved and hopefully we launch today, thanks for your patience.”
“@PixelJunkNews: @Scubafinch @Denzelio2 PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD should be hitting Australia & New Zealand PSN today. For updates follow @PJMonsters”



Hello Jawad,

I already bought Sly 4 without the Plus discount, do we get the difference refunded when its fixed?


TheMART 1 August, 2013 @ 10:16 am   260


“Posted on 31 July, 2013 at 10:57 pm by Sqnalkel_ES

Dude you had like a month to grab those, some even longer… And now you cry about them leaving the store at a certain time?

Why did you wait that long to grab them? If you download them once, they’re yours forever to play as long as you are a PS+ subscriber. So how did you ‘lose’ them?

The store always updates Wednesday somewhere in the afternoon. It has been months, years like that already for the EU. I don’t get why some people are crying over stuff that they could have known.

TheMART 1 August, 2013 @ 10:23 am   261

Ah Sly 4 I already saw a PS+ discount on the PSVita PSN store and the PS3 version on PSN store didn’t.

Thought it was on purpose, but it seems an error. Might buy the PS3 version with 20% discount and get the PSVita version crossbuy for free then!

Lekhter 1 August, 2013 @ 10:23 am   262

Still no Lego LOTR in Ukraine. Shame…

PHEEliNUX 1 August, 2013 @ 10:30 am   263


There are many people myself included who get Unit 13 from Plus when it was free, But it isn’t in our download list anymore


Hi Jawad,

I doubt it makes a difference, but incase it does, and you were not aware:

There is no Lego LOTR on South Africa Store either.

Jawad Ashraf 1 August, 2013 @ 10:54 am   265

LEGO Lord of the Rings is currently being pushed live to Stores that previousy hadn’t received it (Israel, India, South Africa and more).

XRA-6369 1 August, 2013 @ 11:20 am   266

LEGO The Lord of the Rings not available in saudi arabian playstation store
thank you 🙂

AshishSahoo 1 August, 2013 @ 11:35 am   267

Thanks for the early response. Much appreciate it 😀

roalvarez1979 1 August, 2013 @ 11:39 am   268


Any news about Ducktales HD? PS+ users will have discounts?

MASPALOMAZ 1 August, 2013 @ 11:44 am   269

When does the big summer sale start?? 😉

Nightmare966 1 August, 2013 @ 12:07 pm   270

Hi Jawad, one last question from me this week: I’m seeing the Rayman Legends PS3 page is displaying a file size of 2.3GB now — is that the actual size of the game + the PSOne game?

Thanks for your time. 🙂

potential91 1 August, 2013 @ 12:07 pm   271

Sup Jawad,

Looking to purchase the Most Wanted Complete DLC Bundle, however this DLC pack hasn’t been reduced in price although advertised at £11.99 on the sale post, will this be rolled out or is it not intentional?
Thanks mate 🙂

MASPALOMAZ 1 August, 2013 @ 12:26 pm   272

@potential91 if you go thru the ingame store you see the discount already;)

Desertmonkey666 1 August, 2013 @ 12:27 pm   273

I bought pixel junk monsters for 9.99, I notice now it has a plus reduction to 7.99. Any chance of a refund of the difference?

The_Dark_Trooper 1 August, 2013 @ 12:52 pm   274

Any word as to when the PSOne Classic Hogs of War will make it to the European Store? It’s on the US one already and I would love to play it on my Vita.

potential91 1 August, 2013 @ 12:52 pm   275

@MASPALOMAZ – Thanks mate 😀 Not actually started the game up as I wanted to buy the DLC first 🙂 Will sort it out that way ;p

boxer117 1 August, 2013 @ 1:06 pm   276

za ako dlho ten store pojde pretoze mne uz skoro druhy tyzden nejde furt vypisuje ze prechadza udrzbou

krakchap 1 August, 2013 @ 1:38 pm   277

jawad, i hope you read this. there is no option to buy sly cooper thieves in time for either the ps3 or vita. the buy option for the ps3 version is missing, the vita version asks you to buy the ps3 version. i have tried it on the web store, the ps3 psn store and the vita psn store.

i really hope its a bug, cause all other sly titles are avb and this too was avb at launch.

Overlord1304 1 August, 2013 @ 1:41 pm   278

Waaaaay too late to get a response I’m sure, but just to let you know that Lego Lord of the Rings is not showing up on the South African store. Any news on why this is, possible solution, or possible replacement game? Thanks!

Overlord1304 1 August, 2013 @ 1:43 pm   279

Ah I see the earlier comment. Thanks! Will just be patient 😉

Golwar 1 August, 2013 @ 1:48 pm   280

The Complete DLC Bundle for NFS MW received a 10% discount for Plus now, but not the general 50% cut. `
Thought that might be temporary till they finish their process, but minutes pass by and the price remains. Is it really that complicated to hit the right buttons?

Omikaru 1 August, 2013 @ 2:03 pm   281

So I’ve noticed a few of the discounts are now fixed, but are you just going to leave Persona 1 at £7.99?

I want to do all my purchases in one checkout, and waiting for the £3.99 correct price is making me hold off.

Omikaru 1 August, 2013 @ 2:12 pm   282

Never mind, seems to be fixed now!


And again another week and another f*(k-up by the always incompetent SCEE store team in UK.
Thanks for the extra free game and keep messing up guys lol.
Who is the manager of this team and why is he/she still not fired?
Please improve, you are the laughingstock of this industry and it hurt your sales!

TheMART 1 August, 2013 @ 3:32 pm   284


So you are mad over receiving NBA 2k13 for free because an error was made?

I don’t see it as a laughingstock, I see it as an extra gift for those that grabbed it while they could. Sony probably will pay the developer extra for the extra number of copies given away.

No one really loses and certainly you as a gamer didn’t, did you?


@TheMART I thanked them for their stupid mistake so what are you talking about.
The store is PlayStation’s bread and butter and for as long as they have it they mess it up. That is bad business practice, they loose money because of that. Just like you said with the wrong free game. Yes they will need to pay the developer for their stupid mistake. I just don’t get it that after all these years they are still not able to have a good process to put the content in the store and it hurts Sony and the console I care for.
PS I’m a process manager in ICT.

TheMART 1 August, 2013 @ 5:57 pm   286

@285 OttoT

You sound like one angry ICT process manager then… Are you unhappy with your own job that you’re going into asking to get people fired and stuff? I bet you never make mistakes…

I doubt, really doubt that it hurts Sony and the PS3 that bad. We don’t know, they might have to pay the developer for it, they might not as the mistake wasn’t intended. Who knows.

Anyhow, I don’t care if you’re an ICT process manager, Bill Gates himself or the King of the Netherlands really. Anyone can see it was a mistake. But calling people incompetent and getting fired is like, too much. Often people that are that mad in their posts got some problems with their own job.

TheMART 1 August, 2013 @ 5:58 pm   287

Pretty sure that with PSN store they got enough bread and butter for the digital sales they make to have a mistake every now and then. It is not like they’re selling PS3’s with a loss of 300 USD on each unit sold like some years ago, or got a WiiU on their hands that is dead in the water.

Relax a bit, lets enjoy NBA 2k13 as an extra gift. I am pretty happy with Sony, my PS3, PSVita and upcoming PS4 as they give me a better total platform of games than Microsoft of Nintendo do at the moment. The only thing that they could improve is the PSN store PSVita saledeals.

Golwar 1 August, 2013 @ 6:02 pm   288

Why do you even claim that no one loses when you previously mention that Sony would have to pay for that mistake? Wasted money is no loss?

And it isn’t as if this happened for the first time. Both times when Germany got a replacement title, they made the very same **** and shared those games with everyone else too.
Just one of many examples that some SCEE teams don’t improve at all, by all indications. And this obvious lack of ambition is what annoys so many of us.

Sony put so much effort into providing a far better hardware architecture with the PS4. They improved their developer and publisher relations too, see self-publishing etc.

But in Europe we won’t even manage one week without store blunders. It’s ridiculous.
I simply can’t embrace the PS4 when I have to expect that an elemental part, the store, will always fail to provide us the plain average standards in this industry.

TheMART 1 August, 2013 @ 6:52 pm   289

lol Golwar, we don’t know for sure. Sony might pay for extra games downloaded, Sony might have made a deal for the game in total to get a certain amount for the PS+ group of people en total, we don’t know.

I was saying with ‘no one loses’ that we, as customers get our stuff and even got some extra. Nothing was taken away. But for sure it is nothing that the average user on this blog should get so angry about IMO.

Yeah, I think I got those extra games from Germany too. Hell maybe they even left those and this one on purpose as some extra viral marketing thing as everyone and their dog reports this on every single gaming website and forum around that an extra game is up for free.

That might even get in many new PS+ subscribers and make Sony extra money. Who knows. I think you should all just enjoy the great weather in Europe a bit more instead of getting so angry over a free NBA 2k13…

Alienshade 1 August, 2013 @ 7:07 pm   290

I cant see guacamelee! new dlc on Vita psn and some other stuff (swe)

Golwar 1 August, 2013 @ 9:23 pm   291

Ahem … yes. I probably shouldn’t disturb your dreams in pink, where no harm can happen and where you find some secret good intentions, behind all mistakes and faults that happen.

I’ll simply assume then that SCEE’s weak sales, where they act as if they’d have to provide superhuman efforts for every single deal they arrange (while other stores easily gather hundreds of them at once and that faster after release and with better prices), just happen because Sony wants us to safe our money and spend some time with our families instead.
Seriously, that sounds about as “reasonable” as your tales.

I’m not angry about NBA, I just acknowledge it as the lastest example for their general misery. SCEE isn’t generous, they are just incapable to handle their store properly. I don’t consider a random free game as NBA to be worth the trouble and frustration that we experience otherwise.

asim-1234 1 August, 2013 @ 10:22 pm   292

Excuse me if I sound slightly forward, however I’d like to ask why the UK/EU PSN Store does not include ALL GTA V avatars like the US store does? We only have 2 avatars and are missing all the characters whereas the US store has them all, in addition to avatars being locked to only one account preventing purchase from an American Account.

MASPALOMAZ 1 August, 2013 @ 11:48 pm   293

If they would have put all sales of the last weeks in one day, probably everyone would have been amazed of the summer sale with gta, mgs, tomb raider, uncharted, need for speed and so on.

I dont see weekly sales like in sony europe in other gaming companys, does xbox have it?? I dont think so.. I dont see brilliant plus titles like europe anywhere else. Its sad so many gamers are unhappy. I see playstation US and xbox users envy us in europe for the great plus games and complain to their blogs why europe gets the good stuff.

Lets just ask them they keep improving the blog and store 🙂

gbgamesmember 2 August, 2013 @ 12:58 am   294

Ok, lol. So a person is angry because some other person got a free game that he couldn’t ? LOL.
Really people, live and let live, and blame your government for stupid laws, not Sony.

I would again like to thank Javed and the blog team for quick resolution of LEGO LOTR issue.

AshishSahoo 2 August, 2013 @ 4:27 am   296

Did you search for it? It may not show in usual list. I got nothing when I searched for it, but it was present in the Plus section on Vita store.

gbgamesmember 2 August, 2013 @ 4:29 am   297

@AshishSahoo I see it now , Thanks Mate ! .

MASPALOMAZ 2 August, 2013 @ 11:26 am   302

@Journey / MR-NONO77 , nice find

Its saying its on sale from 07-08-2013 to 09-08-2013, so really from next wednesday on, so maybe they brought it earlier then , might as well be another blog post or like the 50th sale this year 🙂


MASPALOMAZ 2 August, 2013 @ 11:30 am   303

im too quick , meant to say so maybe we can also expect another blog post today about either journey, or maybe EVEN MORE sales.

Will be pretty busy with most wanted tho, i just love it and i havent even started the races yet. Way better than i thought from the demo back then.

TheMART 2 August, 2013 @ 2:39 pm   304

Journey, if it starts on sale at the 7th that is next Wednesday will most likely be a part of the Summer Sale.

On the other hand, new update on Summer Sale should be at mid august/14th.

So this might be some in between sale/deal for whatever reason. Strangely it says from 7 to 9 august indeed only two days… Maybe it is a new way of giving sales. Last minute deals maybe haha with just a short time of the deal running.

Good one though, down from 12.99 to 6.49 Euro for regular users and 5.84 Euro for PS+ users. Nice one!

AshishSahoo 2 August, 2013 @ 2:44 pm   305

GirlGamer_0123 4 August, 2013 @ 9:28 am   309

Jawad please put me out of my misery, will Project Zero (called Fatal Frame in US) ever make it to the UK/EU psn store?

I have been hunting down forums to see if it will happen but all I found out is that the US psn store have Project Zero (they call it Fatal Frame). It is such a great game and I know for a fact that if you choose to put it on the UK/EU psn store sales will rocket. This game is fantastic and some people even said that it was underrated and deserves more recognition. Please think about it, the US psn store found some technical issues BUT after about two weeks of releasing Fatal Frame (Project Zero) they fixed the problems really quickly. I think I speak for a majority of people when I say Project Zero should be added to the UK/EU psn store. It will be such a big disappointment to fans if it not added to the UK/EU store and some people may think it is unfair that the US psn store has it and not the UK/EU psn store. People might even just make a US account just to buy the game, making the UK/EU psn store lose money.

Please think this through, this game is absolutely brilliant and if it were to be added to the UK/EU psn store, so many fans will buy it, including myself.

Birdorf 7 August, 2013 @ 11:13 pm   313

I, like quite a few others it seems, bought PixelJunk Monsters at £9.99, only to see a discount applied later. Bit annoyed, sent an email Friday, still not heard anything. Chances of a refund?! Or just a response, I suppose?

Birdorf 7 August, 2013 @ 11:14 pm   314

Also, it is true that I only post when I want to moan. Sorry.

Birdorf 14 August, 2013 @ 4:27 pm   315

£2 refunded today. Ta Sony. Only took 2 weeks. No one will read this.
