PlayStation Store update: Painkiller, Injustice: Gods Among Us (Vita), more

It’s a massive week here at SCEE, with PlayStation 4 arriving in just a few days. We’ll have a separate post live shortly detailing the full list of launch content.

Of course, it’s business as usual for PS3 and PS Vita too, both of which have new content releasing this week, such as Painkiller – Hell & Damnation and Batman Arkham Collection for PS3 and Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition for PS Vita.

And why not take your games even further with a range of add-on content going on sale in the next few weeks. Starting today until 23rd December, each week we’ll be offering discounts on DLC for a number of titles. The first wave begins with savings on skin packs for the oh-so-good Batman Arkham City, more characters for Mortal Kombat and new threads for Tales of Graces f.

Finally, don’t forget to download your PS Plus titles for December, which go live when the Store updates!

    Wait, why does Saudi arabia not get grand theft auto libery city stories? :(


    That’s all for this week? Not a single sale? Disappointing…


    Sale right at the bottom. There will be something over the weekend, too.


    Is the “Escape Plan Collection” a collection with the game and all of the DLC?
    If so, will it be possible for owners of the PS Vita versions to buy all of the DLC at once for a reduced price?



    bf4 premium
    ac pas

    So for PSN Plus are we going to get 2 PS3 games rather than 3 from now on?

    Last week fred hinted at vita stuff going on sale today:

    So that just doesnt happen? :(


    Come back on Friday ;)

    PLEASE lower the PS4 game prices down to the same as XBOXONE prices!!!


    last week you wrote on comment on blog that in this week you add some discounts on Playstation VITA games. Where is it? :(

    1 question
    flow en flower them come out on date on ps4 ?????


    “Posted on 20 November, 2013 at 11:12 am by Fred Dutton

    We’ll have some Vita titles on sale next week.”

    Let me guess……

    You didn’t feel it was the right time?

    Getting pretty sick of being told something will happen that doesn’t.


    Be patient chap! The week is still young!

    Any info on why the plus service is decking in. A ps3 game was removed in November even though you said ps4 wouldn’t affect the ps3 offerings. No update on the yearly vita igc games- you’ve previously said before they would change before the end of the year.

    *getting worse not decking in

    supersmith2500 27 November, 2013 @ 15:11

    SCEA is giving away free PSM games as their Xmas giveaway. Is SCEE doing the same thing? I hate to have empty handed from you guys.


    Yes indeed. See the blog post below this one.


    Echoing the previous comments, where is the Vita sale that Fred mentioned last week?

    So no Vita sales as promised last week?

    That’s a shame.


    Guys there was a separate post about the PSM games being free earlier!

    When are we getting Carnivores HD?
    America has had it for some time now the only details I could find say it was to be released before the end of the year in the EU and your running out of time.

    Thanks for your reply

    also just a quick note at my displeasure at you not changing the Vita yearly P.S plus titles this is deceitful based on your original message.


    Any news on 12 deals of christmas for this year?

    Any sale on ps plus subscription?



    Check back a little later this week for some info on this.

    Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition

    Um why is the EURO price more expensive on the PSVITA version!!?? The Brittish pound prce is cheaper on the PSvita version.

    TheCursedMonkey 27 November, 2013 @ 15:15

    Are the prices right for Injustice? The Vita one is more expensive. Also, I own Injustice downloaded, do I get a discount for the Vita version?


    So,the U.S. gets Persona 4 Golden discounted again,whilst it’s still full price since release in the U.K. Poor show,Sony.


    This comes down to the publisher agreeing for a discount rather than us slashing without consent. We’ve tried on many occasions. Maybe in the future it could happen.


    My patience is wearing pretty thin with SCEE ‘chap’.

    supersmith2500 27 November, 2013 @ 15:18

    Not a single sale? There is.


    Let’s grab those Batman stuff for Origins. And those PS Plus games.

    Also, I can’t seem to find the Ultimate Edition for Injustice on PS3. Is it on the Store, is it coming today, coming later? Also, does it come with a discount for the PS4 version as well?

    Thanks in advance. Looking forward Friday’s sale! :)

    Nobody has got back to me from customer services. Thanks sony. Great customer support. To think I spend hundreds of pounds a year on this company’s products and they cant even get back to me over one query in a email.

    no price reductions this week?…
    ok, I will save my money…

    too bad for you sony…

    Hi, i am planing on getting a ps4 soon an as such was planing on downloading the free PS+ PS4 games via the PC PSN STORE .
    But im only alowed to get the assisns creed free iteam. the two free games come up as i need to buy them.
    i have PS+ on my ps3 so could u answer why i cant put those games on my account for when i get a PS4 , LIKE U CAN WITH THE FREE VITA GAMES . ?

    First of all, thanks for amazing work with PS+ and the great games in the IGC each month!

    I have a question for the PS+ team, is there any chance we’ll see Dragon Age 2 (and/or the first one) in the IGC anytime soon (or at all)?
    I mean, it’s about time to start the hype for Dragon Age: Inquisition, right? =)

    Keep up the good work!

    Trying to download SONIC Plus for VITA… Tells me I have to pay!


    It’s a pity we have to wait longer for Ys: Memories of Celceta. Never heard of these Ys: games before but this one has surely got my attention. Any chance we could see a demo of it before the full game get’s released?


    I can’t confirm anything but it would indeed be great to have it released here. The first game was pretty good and I’m slowly working my way to the rest. Loved the music :D

    I’m wondering about one thing. I bought the season pass for Assasin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and I have bought the digital upgrade for my game to PS4, isin’t the season pass also transferable to PS3 to PS4? I thought if I bought it for PS3 I’d get the PS4 version also.


    Season Passes will transfer over :)


    You kill us again, Sony and Rockstar, but we still love you :(

    fred why i need to pay flow on vita ( when i already buy the game on ps3 )

    i tink if u buy 1 version of flow – flower u get on 2 other system ore not ?


    These titles are cross-buy so you should not need to pay extra.

    You made a mistake at the PS Plus section. “PS4” doesn’t introduce the section of free PS4 IGC titles, it is listed as a free part of the subscribtion.

    As a reward for my discoverey, I’d accept a free PS4. ;)

    I certainly hope that we’ll see a P4G sale in Europe during the holiday sales. It would be a shame if the US managed so many sales and Europe none at all.


    Because the game isn’t eveb in the store

    Slightly disappointed that Sonic Racing isn’t free on PS3, But i guess that is my fault for not noticing it on Vita when the games were announced
    Pretty average(But still kinda good) update

    It is black friday this friday coming so putting a sale on then is a very good idea. Not expecting much though tbh, learnt my lesson from expecting too much from the summer sale, SCEE hasn’t been very good in the sale department for a while, other than those 12 gifts of xmas which was really good last year so i am more hoping you can equal last years, thats not too much to ask is it……… i hope not anyway.

    Just an upddate it now works,

    Flower (available from 29th November

    If i were to say, hypothetically, that i already bought it and was now playing it, would i risk getting penalized?



    No. This has been intentionally been brought forward, so enjoy :)

    When will the Vita versions of Flow and Flower be available?


    You can play Flower now. Flow will be out post PS4 launch.


    Is there going to be a Black Friday sale this week?


    There’ll be some bits and pieces during the weekend, definitely so check back on Friday.

    madmanwithabox12 27 November, 2013 @ 15:32

    Hi Jawad,

    Awesome update. I’ll hopefully be getting Injustice on Vita next week for my birthday.

    I raised a couple of issues on the Vita’s store a few weeks back and they’re still there (Sly 4 is listed twice, Hotline Miami and LEGO Legends of Chima aren’t under “all Vita games” etc). Hopefully these problems can be fixed. They’re nothing major, but it’d be nice for the store to be a bit more presentable. It also helps newbies find these titles more easily.


    Trust me, if gamers would be reminded of DA2 once again, this would negatively impact the sales of DAI. Fortunately DAI seems to be way better.

    Oops. Just spotted Flower in the line-up for the 29th. How about Flow?

    As awesome as GTA is, LCS is not a Vita game. I am very disappointed.

    Also, when are we getting the new Sound Shapes DLC?

    I bought Escape Plan on Vita on release date.
    Will that be cross buy for PS4 also?


    Yes, you’ll be entitled to the PS4 version. This includes if you purchased DLC for the original Vita release.

    @Fred: When can we expect an explanation about the changes to PS Plus? Or who can we contact who is in the position to answer these questions? People renewed their subscriptions based on false information of you and Chris.

    Will the 2 new Sound Shapes packs be coming to Europe before Christmas?


    There are some new packs available now, actually. I’ll have these added to the post.

    I want Disgaea’s DLCs so badly. And we gonna miss another NISA title. Screw this rating system.

    Hey Fred

    A couple of questions if I may:

    1. Will Dark Souls 2 be available as a downloadable title from PS Store? I know I’ve asked this question before but I was wondering if you had some new info, or if you could interrogate someone from From Software. I know you’re a Souls fan too, so help me out please! :)

    2. American PS Plus just got Soul Sacrifice for free – I was wondering if this would be the case for Europe too? Just a hint please?


    1. Nothing to confirm yet, but namcobandai are in a better position to answer this.

    2. I think it is possible for the future when the time is right.


    The EU ps4 launch seems to be a lot more low key than the US one. I guess it always gonna be less exciting being second, but i assumed they’d try n make up for it some how. Crazy how we dont even get some psn money like the US did ($10), and are games cost more.
