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 ?


Why not Japan as well, They have the most store content

No Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn? It’s available in the US PSN for digital pre-order, both in normal and CE edition. Kinda disappointed :/

Dave-The-Rave 21 August, 2013 @ 14:57

Does the 90 days free offer when you buy one year of Plus come into effect when the store updates?

Gamesgbkiller 21 August, 2013 @ 14:57

When I can download the killzone beta ?

agentsmith2000 21 August, 2013 @ 14:58

Nice update might be a excuse to renew my plus membership and to try out the Killzone Mercenary Open Beta :P and the Puppeteer demo since I am hooked on Muramasa Rebirth at the moment.

Any news regarding the release Toro’s Friend Network? or New Ps1 classics being released?


My Killzone beta code doesn’t work?

@51 It’s on the store right now.


Jawad when does Flashback get released on PSN? I’ve already got the demo on the Xbox but I’d love to see it on PS3 too as I have credit to spend :)

ratchetdude680 21 August, 2013 @ 15:01

It’s been 92 long and painful days since Ratchet: Gladiator HD released in the US. That we have to wait, okay. But please, just please tell us WHY we have to wait. It’ll make the waiting a lot more bearable.



You don’t need a code. The closed beta has ended, this is Open Beta now.

I’m importing the walking dead vita and a 32gb memory card.
Just hope that the 400 days dlc is on the cart!

when will we get some more dlc for dynasty warriors 8?

Hey Jawad

Where is the FF XIV:ARR??? Why is the Europe the only region NOT to get it in preorder (or maybe even at all??) while it’s laready on both Japanese as well as NA stores for a while?

Is this not being released on our region as DD? If so – why?

Thank you.


Saints row: PS Store £49.00 – Shop to £37.85
Splinter Call PS Store £59.99 – Shop to £36.85

Crazy pricing. If you want Digital distribution to work, you have to cap what publishers are charging within the store.

I really hope it gets reviewed for the PS4, because i don’t want to have to buy boxed product any more

pinkplaybunny 21 August, 2013 @ 15:06

Is there going to be a digital copy of beyond two souls? If its priced the same as the last of us was then I would prefer a digital copy.

CoolRichy007UK 21 August, 2013 @ 15:07


Crimson-Falcon 21 August, 2013 @ 15:08

hi jawad

is there no way to release final fantasy xiv a realm reborn as preorder same as us store?



Digital isn’t the way to go. What happens when the distribution servers are permanently shut down? You will have no way of getting what you paid for.

Physical will always be the best and cheapest option.


divekick looks fun but its way overpriced. £4 would have been more reasonable.
this seems to be a trend with vita games – to charge too much

so when does Europe get Final Fantasy 14 up for preorder on psn?? i’ve been waiting for a digital release, just to not be there? man… im so disappointed in europe right now.

CoolRichy007UK 21 August, 2013 @ 15:09

pre orderd saints row 4 way cheeper then a disk copy that will break after a year



Disk copys only break if they’re treated badly. I still have all my PS1 and PS2 disks in pristine condition.


The Walking Dead for Vita has been swallowed by SCEE’s submission process’ black hole. It is now in a better place alongside Dragon Fantasy Book I and CS:GO.


When is the best indie game ever made getting released a.k.a Minecraft?

@bestheelever flashback is part of microsofts summer of arcade promotion,so it is probably going to be a minimum of 4 weeks before we get it :-(

don’t see Castle of Illusion pre-order :(


yeah i’m just going to grab the xcom game from steam, at least i get all the other xcom games for free, a free mission and spec ops the line as well all for £26.99.

i save half the money, and gain all the rewards. This is why digital console games fail.


Those remembering the fiasko with internal clok bug a few years back know very well that it doesn’t matter at all if you have the hard or digital copy of the game – it will simply not work.

hitman_stephen 21 August, 2013 @ 15:20

How come XCOM and many other games are so highly priced? It’s not helping sonys and playstation cause.
I just got Xcom bureau, previous Xcoms and Spec ops the line all for £28 from some well known PC place beginning with ‘S’. I’d much prefer to get it on PS3 but its twice as much and you get 3 times less. :(
I know your probably going to say its the publishers choice and you dont have much say in it but.. i dont know.. i just want to help you guys out.

breakbeatkaos 21 August, 2013 @ 15:20


If only, but that’s just something to dream about.

I’d be happy with even being able to just change region, whether it was a one-time thing or a fee every time you did it, I wouldn’t mind, anything will do.

I really hope things change for PS4.


The GTA V pre-order was announced at gamescom, So it’s should come to europe right??

Are we getting Spelunky next week like the US?

Where is the pre-order for Castle of Illusion? It has been reported by numerous sites including EuroGamer that Sony would put it up on the EU store today:

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 15:22

So Europe gets to wait 5 months for Walking Dead. Ok.

Seriously, this sluggish QA nonsense needs to improve. Sorry Jawad but SCEE should really need to improve itself. Seriously does SCEE really want the Vita to die and even the Store UI on PS3 is not yet updated.

how have you guys found killzone merc beta, i refreshed uk psn store 3 times



I can see that a lot of people still want physical disk, just saying sony should do more to level the pricing for people who want digital.

I disagree with you about distribution servers though. I can still download ‘gripshift’ off PSN and that was the first game I purchased, pretty much about PS3 launch date, nearly 7 years ago.

Digital is by far more better (enviromentally better) than disc copies. I believe if there is Sony around the digital download will be there forever as for the company if it’s still making money. I don’t get it why they should make disc based games anymore – the only difference is you own the game and have it in your hands (and i don’t get it either – this i must own everything so i can touch it). This materialistic way of looking at things just doesn’t appeal to me that much. The only way would then be the end of the world – and I think even your discs would be priceless then.

But it’s only my opinion on something, no stress at all.

errr no Japanese voice for Dynasty Warriors 8. I must reiterate again I really don’t like my Chinese warlords having American accents. It’s like Cao Cao: “Dude, my ambition cannot be stopped”. Okay he doesn’t say dude, but he may as well.

Any indication when Koei will grace us with the JP voice?

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 15:24

Also, I can’t say why Ubisoft is now following suit with EA’s horrible pricing.

Wow, no date for Walking Dead – does it mean it’s the same case as with CS:Go, RaC:G, Terraria …omg, I hope it gets released on Christmas then, lol.



That bug has no relevance to what i’m talking about. That was purely an error that couldn’t be avoided and it’s not console exclusive. The same thing happened in 2000 with Y2K.

The fact is, do you really believe digital content will be around forever? Disks ensure that you can still play whenever, but digital requires a source of distribution. Once that source is gone, there will be no way to access what you paid for.

People stop asking about The Walking Dead Telltale said it will come to Europa 1 or 2 weeks after North America!



Terraria will have a release shorty after the PC version gets it’s long awaited 1.2 update, which is nearing completion according to the Dev.


Is I the only one not seen Tales of Xillia Idol Master and Dhaos Costumes + Theme?

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 15:29

Btw, I contacted Telltale regarding the game. No info I can share.

Finka_Karfein 21 August, 2013 @ 15:31

Still no Chrono Cross, Yakuza digital versions… Please, do sth about it.


Oh, thanks. I’ll take a look at my steam account with Terraria shortly then :).

Another one for a update on ratchet gladiator but at least I got one date that I am very, very happy and that is gt6 and nicely time to be underneath my Christ mas tree


You have to question the store teams commitment sometimes. When it comes the Walking Dead I can’t believe the generic response of “I don’t have a release date yet”. Nice but surely shouldn’t you be saying “I don’t have a release date but I’ll chase it up and find out what’s happening with it and what’s holding it up”. urgh

Luizelgespuizel 21 August, 2013 @ 15:34

Resistance Burning Skies is 22 Euro’s on the store, while on the vita sales blogpost it says it’s going to be 12 Euro’s. When is this going to be fixed ? All the other games mentioned on the post are already the correct priced.



While i too think that Physical is better, But if you backup your data then you probably will never have that problem on Digital

And besides, Sony isn’t Microsoft,They wouldn’t suddenly close PSN on PS3 like MS did with Xbox , And i doubt Sony would bankrupt at anytime soon for us to worry about distributing, They still have PSP PS Store up



This is what companies should, But not how companies work



I didn’t mention Japan because I’m not really sure about their content, and since the content released in USA eventually makes it way to the European store. But some games just don’t make it here on time and sometimes they don’t make it here at all! Dragon Fantasy Book and Counter Strike are two examples… I mean, come on, at least tell us why you won’t bring them over!?

The differences between SCEE and SCEA aren’t minor. They have better sales, better prices, earlier content and other stuff. In my opinion, SCEE do a horrible job regarding the store

DarkArchoNx66 21 August, 2013 @ 15:42

Has it been any news about the September update on plus, or have I misses it.

How much for GTA V (euros Please)?

What happened to the free Soul Sacrifice DLC that was supposed to be released 2 weeks ago (Cat Sith” and “Beelzebub)! As detailed here:

2 weeks in a row people have pointed out its completely missing from the store and still no reply from store staff. Are we going to have to make it three weeks in a row!?


It’s in game and needs no download from Store.

News about Htsune Miku Project Diva F? Release is soon..

Helletic-Hojo 21 August, 2013 @ 15:56


where is the Defiance dlc in the store ?


#108 Hatsune Miku release next week.

#107 Cat Sith and Beelzebub is out

Is there any reason why the vita version is still showing as £26.99 plus discount price? This isn’t the price that was on the blog post about the vita items on sale.


You really don’t know want to look at the list of vita games available in Japan as it’s extremely disappointing to realise most of those games will never make it to the west. Not to mention there are at least 3x as many games available


Listen up store management dudes…

How hard is it to get these small updates right that one time each week?

The previous Soul Sacrifice DLC is still floating around, unsorted, in the VitaAdd-On list. And the latest DLC is nowhere to be found, except via search.

There’s plenty more wrong with the Vita store, but lets start out with one game.

Please do a better job. There’s always broken stuff and it seems like you just don’t care or just flat out lack the ability to handle a simple web store.

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 16:03

You haven’t missed it but there is a leak that Urban Trials Freestyle could hit IGC according to the IGC ad in the coming soon tab and yes I’m annoyed because I bought that game from the last sale. *sigh*

M3RL1NS_N3M3S1S 21 August, 2013 @ 16:05

Hey, i asked this 2 weeks ago but got no reply, just wondering why Zone of the Enders HD is not available in Ireland? it is as part of the bundle and we had it on PS2 (which is why i really want to pick it up in HD, awesome game), so please tell me it’s just delayed for some stupid reason, thanks :)

Another problem with the VITA store all the Everybody’s Gold Clubs and Kat Costume DLC do not show up in VITA store for no reason. Can only be purchased through webstore or PS3. VITA only owners may not even know they exist…

These issues have persisted for months and people come here and point them out yet they are still not fixed.



Not sure what Jawad is talking about(?).

You can grab the Soul Sacrifice DLC (Cat Sith/Lord of Flies) via search on the Vita store (It is also floating around under add-ons, though it isn’t sorted under Souls Sacrifice like the previous DLC). The same goes for the DLC released today.

The Vita store is a shameful mess. And the team doesn’t even seem to care. Week after week…


Why isn’t the Killzone Mercenary beta in the saudi store


I can’t find the NHL 14 demo in the store. Is it not online yet?

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 16:13

Have to agree with Mr. Cowbanana right here!

Home is STILL broken with D31 errors for 2 weeks, PS3 store is still not updated yet. Sluggish QA for some games and poor abysmal sales.

Only great part, IGC.

madmanwithabox12 21 August, 2013 @ 16:16

Hey Jawad, I know you’re probably busy but I thought I’d highlight a couple of problems with the Vita store.

1. Sly Cooper Thieves in Time is listed twice
2. Lego Legends of Chima is missing
3. Any word on all the games US has that we don’t – Toro, Muramasa, Dragon Fantasy Book, DJ Max, Dragon’s Crown etc?


WELSHDRAGON_74 21 August, 2013 @ 16:16

hey jawad any news on DLC for THE LAST OF US.

The Puppeteer demo! Gonna grab that one, that together with Killzone Merc beta on my PSVita just made my day, thanks!


Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is supposed to be up for pre-order today. The early access starts on Saturday for those who pre-ordered. Hence, those who are customers of Playstation EU should be able to do so, TODAY. – It is, and has been up for pre-order a good while on the US PSN store. Get it fixed.


When is Walking Dead VITA coming?


what about GTA V pre-order since rockstar said PS3 fans in Europe will be able to pre-order digitally starting this Friday
if you could help thanks Mason


Ehm. “Puppeteer demo” is not a demo – it’s a 5,7GB full game trial.

Dragon’s Crown is out 11th of Oct in the EU, both vita and PS3. Shopto has pre-orders for it

@cowbanana thank you was able to find it finally only by searching.

Still it should not be acceptable for DLC to be released the store incorrectly categorised making it difficult to find. I cant imagine publishers would approve of this either.

xscapeguy2007 21 August, 2013 @ 16:34

Jawad is there any reason why your not replying to other people’s questions regarding pre order of castle of illusion. I am also wanting this badly, great price with great pre order bonus’s. Can you also explain to me why there has been no release date or update on until dawn. Is my ps3 dead for Sony support after 2013? I have enough stuff to finish so will not be getting a ps4 with that lacklustre line up. I am annoyed nothing has been shown to say what the ps4 camera can do , ESP when u look at the tech of your competitor! product.
Is there going to be any discount of duck tales remastered and castle of illusion for ps plus owners?



@ThFcMaSoN93 / GTA 5 it means there is a blog post about gta 5 on friday announcing the price and bonus for gta 5. usa is getting 70% on all rockstar games i think? brings max payne 3 down to under 3$ i guess (since its still discounted).

i hope they dont pull a europrice on us again and make gta5 70€ or 80€ as with some of the current ubisoft titles.

Any chance of a update on the tales of xillia dlc costumes not showing


Hi Jawad,
I can’t find Bit.Runner 2 on the store?! Is it going to be available today?


Can’t find the Community Cape for GOW:Ascension on the AU/UK Store, it’s on the US Store though!/en-us/games/addons/god-of-war-ascension-community-mantle/cid=UP9000-BCUS98232_00-COMM010000000000

And, again… for Rocksmith, why are we missing “Tighten Up” and “I Hate Everything About You”? They’re on the US Store, they’re on the XBOX in PAL regions. Same with the tracks, they’re discounted from $2.99 to $1.99 in the US, whereas, they’re $4.35 ea here in Australia!

I just bought a 1 year subscription to playstation plus and it said on the welcome screen i would get 90 days extra for free, but i have not gotten the 90 days. Under subscription status it says it will end in 1 year. When will i get the 90 days? or will i have to write to customer service to get what i was promised?


I’m sure this has been said a dozen times already, but the new store layout is awful. It used to be neat and tidy, easy to search for things, now it’s become a chore to find what you’re looking for. Change it back!


The new store UI is more for PC, It is bad beyond belief on PS3, And probably the Vita too judging from the comments

hi jawad

why you didnt reply to me about FFXIV:ARR preorder for EU?

US store already has it for preorder why not EU?

No Walking Dead. My hope for gamescom was that they announce us being treated as equals :-(

As per the Vita/PSP memories sale page Little Big Planet was meant to be £5.99 + 10% PS plus discount. Can you confirm why this is not showing on the store and when it will be fixed?

The content may be updated but the layout isn’t and using this dreadful search engine is a chore.

Where’s the Pre-Order to Disney Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse? I would like to play the exclusive pre-order Genesis Version now.

Man, I loved the Puppeteer demo so much. Everything just clicked with me; the music, the atmosphere, the narrative, the huge amount of details on everything. I’m glad I pre-ordered it.


See this is exactly what I mean. The US once again gets access to content before Europe. When asked why SCEE have no idea. Will this be the same with the PS4?


To someone who said Killzone Merc is open beta and don’t need a code, yes you do. Public open beta starts later. Proof? This part of email, quote: “Thank you for your participation in the early access public beta for Killzone™: Mercenary that begins on August 20th. To download the beta redeem the voucher code after the store update on August 20th.”

Now my question is the same like someones before, why the code doesn’t work? Is the Killzone not in the store yet? I waited till today since ofc that’s when EU store updates but it’s nowhere to be found/code doesn’t work.

@ jarekmasta

its becouse your ps+ user my beta code doesnt work either becouse im plus user

dio_tsirigotis 21 August, 2013 @ 17:47

Has the store fully updated yet because BIT.TRIP runner 2 is nowhere to be found.

Just want to make sure it will actually present itself today, tonight, whenever… just no more delays please :((


You don’t need any code. Just go under ps+ tab on ps store and download the game.


@O1d8oy_23 Thx, got it.

I just wish we knew why ratchet gladiator is taking so long to get here. We need to play major league catch up when ratchet gladiator gets here

@ dio_tsirigotis

They just added bit.trip at least at the pc store, haven’t check the ps3 store.


Tales of Xillia’s DLC isn’t on the Saudi store :(

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 18:33

This is not funny where is Runner2? It should be released.


The price of some of those games is just obscene! £60 for Splinter Cell!!!!!!!! Really…. just really!!!

All this coming from a company that just yesterday it liked to be fair. lies lies lies

Hey, where’s the Castle of Illusion pre-order? I want my Mega Drive classic version!

Ultimadesires 21 August, 2013 @ 18:39

I don’t really visit here but I just wanted to know what happened to then Pre-Order bonus planned for the remake of Castle of Illusion. I was informed it would be released tonight. I just looked on the store, the store has been updated, but no hint of the content being there. I even searched the Castle of Illusion page on the store and there was only a trailer.

I looked on the US PS Store and their content was put up yesterday as planned. I don’t usually download of the store and this was a change to win me over. But I can honestly say I have been let down.

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 18:41

So let me take it Runner2 is quietly delayed again without any notice. Seriously with all this non-sense, I could just skip PS4 and go to Steam for once. I’m getting sick of this nonsense I mean what’s next Castle of Illusion suffer 5 months delay for Europe? I swear, we 2nd class gamers always get shafted when it comes to releases.

Dude, I checked the PC store and it’s still not there.

AHHHHH!!! wheres GTA !?!?!?!?


jedwood got it wrong as that is an unlock via the store. On ure vita go to the ps store – then all and then ps vita addons- if u look there it should be there to download the unlock file

(also if u search soul sacrifice u should also find the add ons u need as well.)


I hope this will help :)!/en-gr/bittrip-presents-runner2-future-legend-of-rhythm-alien/cid=EP1024-NPEB00947_00-GAMEUNLOCK000000

I don’t know if it is the unlock only ( as it seems from the link name ), since at the site it doesn;t mentions something specific, unless i missed it.


I would also like to know when Castle of Illusion is available for pre-order. Could someone from Sony please answer?? Thanks.


@scally6 Damn that sucks. Oh well I’ll be keeping hold of my PS3 until I get my PS4 at the very least so I’ll just get it when it arrive. It’s a decent remake of a great game (at least so far demo wise) and one I’ll play a few times over.


@Rochala: The game size is 770~MB, so it looks like it includes both, Game nd unlockaer :)

Still pursuing that Castle of Illusion answer. Does anyone know how to contact SEGA Europe, by the way?

Meh it;s the unlock only…

Nightmare 666 it says “Download this full game upgrade if you have already downloaded the trial version.”

The_Atmultima 21 August, 2013 @ 18:54

So where is the new Xillia DLC? In fact none of that DLC in this blogpost is available yet. How hard is it to upload small files?

Helletic-Hojo 21 August, 2013 @ 19:06

Not to sound funny here jawad but you come across as a employee that does not care a great deal about the main factor that pays your wage the customer,

Only 4 replys from 4 pages of comments, mostly problems is not great is it, ok i dont expect a reply to every comment but come on jawad problems/questions about the store updates surely you most spend more attention to the ‘customer’ and are problems no.?

So if you do find some time could you explain why the Defiance dlc is not showing in the store .

Many Thanks a Customer.


@Rochala: The Demo Button just appeared for me, so try to look it up on the Web Store now :D

supersmith2500 21 August, 2013 @ 19:10

Is Bit.Trip Runner2 delayed again? the Store seems updated now and Runner2 is still abesent.


Uhm, where is the pre order for castle of illusion? It was supposed to be here today..


Here is the website for SEGA Europe:
You can do what I just did and submit a request and ask them about the release-date.


@supersmith: Man, you should check the updates in the comments before asking :P

Check Rochala’s post :) It’s 776MB by the way.

I too am looking for the Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse Pre-Order. I was expecting to be able to check out the Genesis version tonight. If the pree-order availability’s been delayed or something why not at least say so? This leaving us to wonder business is just annoying.

Ultimadesires 21 August, 2013 @ 19:32

Thanks yxikaxi01, I just sent them an email enquiring about the pre-order delay. I hope to hear from them soon as I was really looking forward to playing the original Castle of Illusion tonight, what is even more infuriating is the US PS Store has all the content available, there is no excuse for this really.

I’ve gone and read the original press release and it seems the bonus doesn’t drop till launch anyway. Must have been some duff reporting on the site I was looking at.


@yxikaxi01: Thanks from me as well, I’ve opened a ticket too :)

It’s also great to see the sheer number of people that’s looking forward to the title, I hope it is successful :D

Hey Jawad.
Just wondering but isn’t there a Vita version of Bit.Trip Runner 2? Just wondering if I’m imagining it because I don’t see it anywhere on the store.


Elize, Leia and Milla idolmaster + Milla in Dhaos costumes is now up on PSN, so now I just wait on Idolmaster Theme link to purchase of all 3 Idolmaster outfit


@Nightmare966 and Ultimadesires: you’re welcome :) Great that you’ve submitted requests as well.

Shadowdragoon 21 August, 2013 @ 20:19

CoolRichy007UK 21 August, 2013 @ 21:56


WHERE IS CASTLE OF ILLUSION PRE ORDER FOR THE PS3 me and other people want it so get off your butts and add the game to the ps store now

CoolRichy007UK 21 August, 2013 @ 21:57

RD_Rabin sony will say whats on ps plus when they are ready

CoolRichy007UK 21 August, 2013 @ 21:57

Ultimadesires i think il send them a email as well telling them to add the game to the eu store right now or il add it


Update for all you: I tweeted SEGA earlier today and they answered back: they’re aware the pre-order is missing and are working to resolve it ASAP.


Killzone Mercenary is just the masterpiece. Even Vita’s screen looks larger while playing this game. Badass one, Guerrilla!

CoolRichy007UK 22 August, 2013 @ 00:54

Nightmare966 thanx for letting us know that its being sorted for all of us in the eu :)

its great when we work together as a comunity and help each other even when sony is too buzy to reply to our questions like

whens this game out that game dlc

Community rules wooo


I see the 3 Idolmaster Costumes, but no Idolmaster theme :(
Guess EU have to wait until next week.


I can’t find the Puppeteer demo on the PlayStation Store in AU. What’s going on? =(


Apologies for the delayed response.

In regards to pre-orders GTAV will be available to pre-order from Friday 23rd. Castle of Illusion will go up next week. Unfortunately for reasons I’m simply unable to disclose we won’t have a pre-order for Final Fantasy XIV, but the game will be available from PS Store come release.


Thanks for info jawad so we will also get some bonus rockstar sale for the gta5 pre-order maybe?

Does killzone vita have killcams and bots?


@CoolRichy007UK: I also like it when we do work together as well :D

@Jawad: Thanks for the answer and clarifying the whole thing, not sure why it’s got pushed to next week though.

Anyways, at least I’ll be able to fully prepare my wallet for DOA5:U as well :D

CoolRichy007UK 22 August, 2013 @ 10:52

castle of illusion nxt week pre order yay il also pre order rayman legends n maybe get gtaV after a few months from the store n i bet gtaV will be 30GB


gtaV is 16GB.



Only one PS Vita thing added this week? One? Stuff like this is why it isn’t selling well.
