PlayStation Store update: Diablo III, Killzone Mercenary, The Walking Dead, more

First up this week, Diablo III. Twenty years have passed since the Prime Evils were defeated and banished from the world of Sanctuary. Now, you must return to where it all began – the town of Tristram – and investigate rumours of a fallen star, for this is an omen that the End Times have begun.

Another new title to watch out for is Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Two sons, desperate to cure their ailing father set out upon a journey to find and bring back the ‘Water of Life’ as they come to rely on one another to survive.

Elsewhere, The Walking Dead shuffles onto the portable joy that is PS Vita today. In addition, this version contains the special episode, 400 Days. The stunning Killzone: Mercenary also arrives on PS Vita, while the hugely successful Farming Simulator series comes to PS3.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of today’s content including Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (oh boy!) and sales on various racing titles and lots of Japanese games.

no nba 2k14 pre order?

Any chance we’ll see a demo for Rayman Legends on Vita?

And under “PS Vita DLC”, it says LittleBigPlanet 2 where it probably should say LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.

What’s new with Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut? It was released 4 months ago in early may.

YAY! Walking Dead for VITA.

What makes the Virtue’s Last Reward: Complete Collection a Complete Collection?

Also, YAY for the Walking Dead! :)

Really good update this week! Awesome stuff as usual! :D


It contains avatars.

Any new Killzone avatars?

When will Elminage Original be playable on the Vita? The same issue happened with Sweet Fuse last week which seems to be fixed now…

Atelier Meruru with Bonus
Price: £31.99/€39.99
PEGI: 12
Availability: Not available in New Zealand

Seriously? Again? There was no issues having the Atelier titles on PS3, but apparently NZ is getting screwed over on Vita. We don’t have the strict laws that Aussie have so this shouldn’t be an issue.

Wait a second! I paid £29.99 for Killzone as a pre-order on the store! You punishing players who wanted to pre order now?!


Apologies! This is being corrected. The correct price is £29.99.

Why is Brothers: A Tale of Two sons £12 on PSN while its £10 on XBL?

Will we get Disgaea 3 Vita in Poland?


Let me grab some Mickey and Maya Sackboy!

Also, Jawad, I’d very much like to know if you could answer any of the following:

1. Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate is coming on Friday at 39.99€, correct?

2. Do you happen to know at all if the Batman Arkham Origins pre-order has got the Deathstroke Pack as well? I see 2 items (I guess the full game and the Knightfall Pack) but everyone’s getting it elsewhere and it’d be strange…

And I don’t think I’ve got anything else to ask today. So there we go. Off to the Castle (of Illusion)!


DOA5 isn’t down for this week.

Batman Arkham Origins from PS Store does not contain Deathstroke.

£50 for Diablo 3…. shocking! And why is Brothers significantly more expensive than the XBL version?


And What? Extra Character Modules DLC for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F?


Hmm, no Pinball Arcade DLC and DoA5 Ultimate?

Ah well. Grabbing the free DLC’s of Soul Sacrifice and PlayStation All-Stars tonight anyways. = )

@Jawad Hey! mate,

I only wanted one thing today which is “DUE OUT” today! and that is Table Pack 15 for The Pinball Arcade?

Please! tell me a mistake has been made and it will be added?


These won’t be released today sadly.

Any chance Netflix app will come to the VIta in the EU, I’m pretty sure it is out in the US, how come we haven’t heard anything about it over here for ages?

Also, any chance we will get more PS1 compatible games for Vita, there’s a ton already of course, but more is never a bad thing. Some more PS1 games would be great, where are the Strike games (nuclear/soviet) that are on the US store and Vita compatible but no hint over here, and Future Cop is available here but only works on Vita over there and not here. Why no GTA1/London/2 either, Rockstar North is based here in the UK, I doubt people wouldn’t want to pick up these classics.

£15 for Walking Dead Vita?! No thanks.

Not sure the PS3 version is that much.

Any news on the Voice-over pack for soul sacrifice? Has been out in the US for a long time now

£25 for killzone when the pre-order was 30? that better be a missprice on this list otherwise im gonna be peeved.

also the walking dead on vita keeps freezing when autosaving and not continuing till it’s done its really really annoying

Where is The Pinball Arcade table pack 15?


Why is deadly premonition directors cut £30 but the deadly Premonition directors cut gold edition which had additional content by the looks of it £20???

Dammit, more games I can’t play because I have a NZ account. I’ve lived in the UK for nearly 3 years now and I still can’t change my account.

Hopefully this is changed when the PS4 rolls around.

In the meantime, is it possible for Sony to tell us if a game is coming at a later date or not at all? We still haven’t received an update about Hotline Miami and it’s been over 2 months.

Hi Jawad,

Are we going to get the 16bit version of Castle of Illusion when you buy this version? Also no PS Plus Discount on it?



The Megadrive version is a pre-order bonus only.

Killzone, Meruru+ and Project Diva for me


Hey Jawad, great update. Any plans for Toro’s Friend Network and Ratchet HD yet?


Nothing to announce on either front today.

Hi Fred, I see killzone mercenary on vita is now only £24.99

I paid £29.99 when I pre ordered from the store

i’m assuming the difference will now be refunded to my wallet?

I expect a prompt refund of the difference and will raise an official complaint if this isn’t done by Friday

thank you


Anyone know the download size for Walking Dead on the Vita please?

When is Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters arriving on the Store? The retail game comes out on Friday, but I was expecting the F2P version of Core Fighters to go up today, just as the US version went up yesterday. Do we now have to wait until Friday or for next week’s Sotre update?

Thank you.


I have 2 Questions.

1. When is the Psychical version of The Walking Dead releasng?

2. Where is the Tales of Xillia IdolMaster theme? It should be on PSN according to Namco, but I don’t see it.


The pre-order contained two bonus items, so it was bound to be slightly more.

In any case, it might be this reason or a price error as you have pointed out. It’s not out in the UK until Friday so I would hold out until then.

I myself pre-ordered mine today at GAME with bonus items for £30. It’s better to have retail, because you’ll be welcomed by a hefty 1.2GB update, bringing the total size of the digital version to just over 4GB.

Should i buy the FFXIV 60 day time card or is there going to be FFXIV time cards for sale on PS store? I heard there were going to be on sale 30 day time cards for 11€. Does anyone know anything about this?


Read my comment at 31.

I was thinking about getting the “Brothers…” but 14.99 is bit steep.

Oh well, Tales of Graces f and Zone of Enders it is, so great wednesday for store.

@ MaxDiehard £5 extra fro 48hrs XP bonus! I don’t think so!

Any update on Ratchet: Gladiator?

This is a joke now. If they’re having problems with fixing things just send it to the guys who did the recent patch for the Zone of the Enders HD collection, they’re wizards.


Jaw any new s when we will get TMNT out of shadows ?


The digital pre-order came with the Blackjack Briefcase, XP bonus and Exclusive ISA Light Machine Gun.

frustrating… wanting to get meruru plus and having only 36 euros on the account.

If you don’t like how it’s done, don’t buy big games in digital. Retail is significantly cheaper and it’s a chunk of memory saved too.

I’d really like to know how SCEE decide what’s a fair price for content on the store. EU PSN content is just so much more expensive than any other format including US PSN. Why?


Hey Jawad

When are we getting new PS1 games?


2.3GB according to the store page

Wasn’t gonna bite on killzone mercs despite loving the beta, as I just cant justify spending £30 on a handheld game anymore, but at £25 you got yourself a gatdamn sale! I hope this is a sign of things to come, puppeteer is getting got as well! nice one Sony

CRAZY TAXI: FARE WARS (PSP) – cannot find this on PS Vita – is it compatible?

On my pre order of Rayman Legends for vita it says the expected playable date is 05/09/13 while the auto dowload date is 10/09/13. I don’t get it? Can you please look into this?


@Jawad: Thanks for the answer. So DOA5:U is coming out next Wednesday? Sigh… :(

@ Jawad

Is The Walking Dead Cross-Buy enabled? I bought the PS3 version, but I ‘d rather have it on my Vita.

Is Dead or Alive 5 Plus Cross-Save compatible with the PS3 version? When does the Ultimate Edition release?

Like others, I’ve preordered Killzone: Mercenary for Vita from the Store for £29.99, and would like to know whether the £24.99 price listed in the post is a typo or if you’re going to refund the difference.

What is the difference between regular Virtue’s Last Reward and the Complete Collection?

I can’t find any info on it any where.
