Meh. Not much going on this week.

Carnivius_Prime 07 August, 2013 @ 15:05

Hm. Not much for me. I may get Duck Tales next week. For now Superfrog and NFS: Most Wanted and providing me with enough gaming fun.

Would you be able to put Hyperdimension Neptuna for sale on the PS Store?

No Dragons Crown???


No release date has been announced for EU yet.

RoaringMdog18 07 August, 2013 @ 15:08

Hey Jawad,

I have a few questions about some upcoming releases.

1. Is the price for Hatsune Miku Project Diva f known?
2. Will GTA5 get a digital release on PSN?
3. Will kingdom hearts 1.5 HD Remix get a digital release aswell?

I hope you can anwser some of these ^^


1. Not yet
2. I can’t confirm at the moment
3. Nope.


hey Jawad

is Sony planning on giving PS plus membership a sale price before PS4 lunch , because I need to be a PS plus member to utilize my PS4 online features in this holiday season . If so , that would
be awesome.

thank you.

I know Xillia isn’t out til fri, but can we download the dlc now?? Or is that going live fri too? Eep I can’t wait, took me too long to discover the tales of series, so glad I did :)


They’re up on the store at the moment.

It’ll be my first proper Tales game, too… even though I own some of them already. Eek!

I think I’ll be picking up the two Sound Shapes DLC packs I’m missing, but nothing else this week.

Jawad, I saw last week someone saying that the ‘recent posts’ box on the blog still says Stealth Inc etc. from two weeks ago and I’d just like to say I’ve got the same problem :/ It’s the same on my laptop, PC and Vita. I tried clearing my cache like you suggested to the other person but no dice.
Is it not a problem on the blogs end?


Strange. I’ll pass this on to Fred but others in the office don’t seem to have that problem.


Fred is looking into it – there should be a fix pretty soon.

Is Hatsune Miku Project Diva F likely to arrive on 28th of this month, a day after the US?

Thanks :)


Should be around then, yep.

spikewestphal 07 August, 2013 @ 15:11

any news when dino crisis 1 and 2 are coming to the European playstation store other than that good update

icecrasher_zero 07 August, 2013 @ 15:11

Dragon’s Crown?

I thought ibb and dobb out today ? Website says 7th August


You are right. I will double check.

Is PLUS getting a discount in the near future?


What pinball tables are in The Pinball Arcade
Season 2 Pack?
Any + discount on the pack?


I’m disappointed about Sound Shapes anniversary 50% sale not listed above , I heard about it earlier , and I was hoping it will show up this week .


It is :)

spikewestphal 07 August, 2013 @ 15:13

also I forgot to say is dam it 50p short for zone of the enders

ryannumber3gamer 07 August, 2013 @ 15:15

Any news on Ratchet Gladiator HD? At this point it seems the rumors that it was going to be September before it comes out is true. I’m really hoping that Ratchet Gladiator HD does come out soon.

Also any chance of KH Birth By Sleep coming to the PS Store? It would be great to have it on the Vita.


Unfortunately I don’t have an update to share in regards to Ratchet Gladiator. As soon as me or Fred have some info then we will definitely pass it on.

No mention in this store update if Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD is now available in Australia, is it still not available in Australia?


Should be available now.

@RoaringMdog18 I really hope so :,( but I don’t think it will – birth by sleep is not on the PSN and Kingdom Hearts 3DS is not on the eshop for download . I hope this one is different

i really wish we got Dragon’s Crown today XD gosh that game looks amazing !!


Will we ever see Sonic 3 & Knuckles? We have:

Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sonic the Hedgehog 4


supersmith2500 07 August, 2013 @ 15:17

So many free content this week (unless you got some right). Plus already gave up waiting for Ratchet HD and Runner2 now. Btw my questions.

1. Any info on Runner2, Netflix app for Vita and Toro’s Friend Network, Runner2 is still stuck in QA and could go AWOL.

2. Any info for the Japanese Voice Pack for Soul Sacrifice?

3. Is Tales of Xillia coming out on Friday for the UK?

4. Any chance for more PS2/PSone classics please? We didn’t even had any classics since January.

5. How are things Jawad?

That is all. = )


1. Runner 2 is a few weeks away from what I understand. Service apps I cannot comment on at the time.

2. That was a pre-order DLC. No current plans to have it released separately for EU.

3. Yep, Friday.

4. Whenever they pass QA, sure.

5. Good, and you?

windsorblue01 07 August, 2013 @ 15:18

ok ill try again as comments from phone not showing up.

you can not play spartacus it says error can not connect to remote servers please try later, so please fix


@12: Ibb & Obb is pushed back a week. EU launch is now August 14th.
So, three free(mium) games this week, and two interesting new Indie games for Vita? Good week!

Sp4rkyM4rk1337 07 August, 2013 @ 15:18

I’ve been looking at Sound Shapes for a while so might grab that.


Why no Dragon’s Crown?

news on legend of dragoon?
why not releasing this game !


Table pack 11 through 20, you can find those in the store. The pack is allready a discount becuase if you buy all packs seperately, you would be shelling out € 20,00 more.

Still waiting for JP Voice dlc for soul sacrifice…

Any news about Hatsune Miku Project Diva F as it only gets release as digital form in EU…. Like pricing and release date..?


Well, I wasn’t expecting the ZOE games to be released by separate files at this time.

So it looks like the Saints Row IV demo is all for me this week. And I guess that makes it for me this summer until Castle of Illusion (hope it’s not that long now) and DOA5: Ultimate hit.

Also, surprised at the lack of ibb & obb.

Does Studio Output still make themes/avatars? I’ve not seen anything from them for awhile.

Will the PS3 ever get a new music visualisation (G-Force, Milkdrop, ApexVJ) or an original visualisation from artists Abstract Birds and/or Quayola?

Silent_1Assasin 07 August, 2013 @ 15:21

is their any news as to when the defiance DLC will be released and how much it will cost?

Dragon’s Crown is not coming so soon on Europe, Muramasa neither :(

I know it’s all about the publishers and all that stuff, but I fail to see the logic behind the schedule. We are at the time where few games come out, which could translate in more exposure and attention than the more crowded times of the year, I would bet it’s selling extremely well on the US and Japan…

Sure, both vita and ps3 are region free, but what’s the point in that if I can’t get the dlc on my vita without formatting the whole thing, let alone having an overseas account…


@27, is that with twilight zone and Star Trek?

I’m over 30 and like Playstation, but there are no more games for me I really desire to play. Content is getting monotonous. Maybe I’m just too old for this.


Hi Jawad,

Any idea if and when we’ll get Ratchet Gladiator HD?

Nothing more to ask really – PS4 launch will see the return of 20 question posts!

So what’s up with The Walking Dead DLC 400 Days for Russia?????????? TTG is ignoring my questions for more than 2 weeks!!!! Please give us some info!

ratchetdude680 07 August, 2013 @ 15:25

Is… is Ratchet: Gladiator HD even planned for a release in 2013? How hard can it be to solve a few simple bugs for a game that only gets an HD upgrade. It’s been 2 months since the US release.

supersmith2500 07 August, 2013 @ 15:25

Dragon’s Crown is coming hence it’s published by NIS America so it should be coming by October. No info on Muramasa though.

A_Nonny_Moose 07 August, 2013 @ 15:25

Is Closure ever getting released in the EU?


release date not announced yet for europe but is being brought over by NIS america.

Could we get some discount on Zen pinball tables other then Star Wars (who has been on sale twice now). Thanks.

jawad, as i as i have been posting week after wee. you cannot buy sly 4 thieves in time from the indian store. both ps3 and vita version have their buy/add to cart button missing. whats the point of a sale if i cant buy the title.

Well, I not giving up on ratchet gladitor and I want to know want sort of tech issue the game got and will you give us another thank you for waiting for this issue, will take full use of the two vita freebie


Just to clarify – Tales of Xillia will be available from Friday 9th August.


@34: Try Die!Die!Die! If that doesn’t surprise you, I don’t know what will… Strangest game in a long while…

TheBigBoss0001 07 August, 2013 @ 15:34

When are we getting new PS1 games?


Hmmm.. In October… I will be playing Diablo III. ;)

I think Dragon’s Crown will hit the EU store sometimes around Christmas time :D as always, if ever…btw. nice update on f2p titles but could they be at least worth it?


@ post34, can understand, have you tried revisiting some old favourites or even older stuff you mightn’t of played, works for me when I see the present gaming situ and let it get me down, then something will get released that’ll make you forget the ever increasing monotonous ip’s that ‘seem’ to be aimed Away from gamers..

Jawad, any chance us EU folk will get Defiance for ten bob, which is about what the US could buy it for last week, not really bothered by All the other bargains on Their store, but actually enjoyed beta for Defiance..


Can certainly try to secure something but no guarantees anything will actually happen.


I didn’t know the exact month, just that it would be sometime on the fall.
