I’m going to grab that Puppeteer trial and pre-order Cast…

Wait, where is my Castle of Illusion? I thought it was supposed to be here today :(

No walking Dead on the vita ??? are we going to have to wait a month to play what the US got yesterday? i need some vita love :(

Not store talk but will we get a PS4 UI walk throught anytime soon and know if the friends limits will be lifted on PS3/PSVITA as opposed to PS4 to 2000?


I haven’t got a European date to share for WD at the moment.


I’m going to try out Puppeteer.

I am dissapointed that the Vita didn’t get The Walking Dead in this update.

When will it arrive in Europe?

Divekick not getting a PS+ discount like in NA?

Do you know when the IGC games are being announced? AC 3 confirmed already. Thanks!

Hi Jawad,
any news about Jacob Jones ep2?


Are we ever likely to see more PS1/PS2 Classics in the near future – we’ve not had any for a while.

What is the status of The Legend of Dragoon?

Are we likely to see Vexx, Klonoa, and Wild Arms 3 released as PS2 Classics?

Hope someone will reply?


There will be some classics in time is all I can say. Maybe not any you’ve specifically mentioned, however…

No Divekick discount and it doesn’t say that it’s cross-buy. What’s the deal with that?

No GTA pre order like America. It is coming day 1 digital to Europe right?

No The Walking Dead for Vita today? Shame, was looking forward to finally using my Vita and finally completing that game ;(

What time does the store update every Wednesday?


In other news

GTA V pre-order in PSN europe friday!!! :D :) ;)

bestoftheturks 21 August, 2013 @ 14:38

Erm. No new things on the Summer Sale? It has to be the worst sale ever. Where is AC3 at 9.99? C’mon, guys, up your game.

Please can we have an update on Ratchet: Gladiator?

Very disappointed in no Walking Dead Vita too…


No Walking Dead today!?!!


@Jawad – next week?


It could be. I really don’t have a date.


The Walking Dead not out today then? Damn :(


NO GTA pre order?


Also when is Castle of Illusion available to pre-order?

Very disappointed in no Walking Dead vita.
Killzone Mercenary Beta seems the highlight today.
May give puppeteer a try too.

walking dead vita????


Hi Jawad. What are the chances of a discount on The Last Of Us Season Pass before the DLC comes out, or ever?


Is the “buy a year of plus, get 3 months free” thing live? Or is it starting later?

Pls why isn’t The Walking Dead for PSV released? At least the North America will test the release first. Do you have any new info on Terraria PSV? I’d like to get it for my friend :). Thx

Where is Ratchet:Gladiator? How more long do we have to wait?

60 for blacklist? XDDDD hahahahahahaha, no.


@8 – Divekick IS cross-buy. I just grabbed it now!

Same thing than Vashetti. We’d like an update on Ratchet: Gladiator HD, and please, not something like “we have nothing to share on this for now”.

castle of illusion pre-order was supposed to be up today is that still happening?

ill give puppeteer a go as it looks great and the pre-order price seems cheep :)

I wish someone would explain why we always have to wait so long for games like walking dead in this region. There isn’t any rational reason when we have it here for every other format.


No walking Dead on the vita ? =/

kilzone merc for me, so happy right now

need to complete a few psv games before the walking dead

wrc3, f1 2011, lego lotr, guacamelee, farming sim

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 14:42

Oh for pete sake, no Walking Dead? Don’t say we have to wait months for this and Ubisoft, how dare you for pricing £59.99 for Splinter Cell. Oh well, least Runner2 came out.

Really happy that Runner 2 has finally been released for Europe.

Is there any update on Dragon Fantasy Book 1?

No Divekick ps+ discount?

Come on guys…..give us some information about The Walking Dead on Vita. I was looking forward to it. :-(

Will Divekick have a Plus discount like in the US?

Also, I bought Sly Cooper Thieves in Time in the sale last week, but the only Vita version I got with cross-buy was the Scandinavian one. Is there any chance I could get the English version? I played the previous games in English and would like to do so with both the PS3 and Vita version of this one. I don’t really see a reason for not getting the English one. Thank You.

undergroundgr 21 August, 2013 @ 14:46

any news regarding gta v and fifa 14 psn preorders?also a ps4 release date for Greece?

soul sacrefice team i love u
free dlc +++++100000


for those wondering the Killzone Mercenary Beta is already on the store :) downloading it now

Hi Jawad

Last week you had Elminage Original for the weekly store update blog, but after a couple of hours you deleted it, any idea if it will come ? or it was just a mistake ?

zalwelgoedgaan 21 August, 2013 @ 14:49

Puppeteer demo still at 26 percent. If I downloaded it on Steam, it would have been done by now. I know it’ll be worth the wait. u_u

Regarding The Walking Dead on Vita, this from the US blog: “The digital release is coming to Europe too, most likely in a couple of weeks.”.

@ Roxas598
That and divekick for 10€! waat? A flash-like game?
Meanwhile Dead or Alive 5+ for 10$ in the US!

At least our EU team gives us the best plus content, so at the end of the day i prefer that if I have to choose!:))
Can’t wait to try out mercenary!

Great week as usual :)
Can’t wait for GTA V and of course PS4!!

When will we get the info on September’s PS+ games?

Yet another update full of nothing for the Vita. A beta of a game being released in a few weeks and another small indiegame.
No word whatsoever about walking dead and probably won’t be answered by anyone from Sony here.
The poor showing on gamescom yesterday with the highlight being a port of year old PS3 game that most have already! And the amazing reveal Shihad had been twittering about was Football Manager. A nice franchise but what’s so great about it? Other manager games are available on PSP (and playable on Vita) so it’s not a first.

I’ve been preaching about the Vita since I got it but it’s getting harder to justify it even to myself.


How about they unify SCEE and SCEA and call it Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide (or something), and let the europe team work on PS+ content, while the US team works on pricing, availability, sales and everything else…. Because SCEE can’t seem to work out these things themselves.

Hey Jawad, no DLC bundles for the new Ascension content?


When will we find out about Sept PS+ content? I know 1 of the games is AC3.. What about the rest?

No Divekick PS+ discount? Why ?
