Great update :)

1.1

Not really. And why no news on the NEW ps3+ps4 models, mp3 support for ps4? Sony must think we r dumb

andrewsqual 21 May, 2014 @ 15:17
1.2

Actually it is a great update. Well I think getting new release games weekly since launch would delight anybody http://i.imgur.com/FfGkecW.jpg ^_^
Maybe buy a PlayStation console first and create a really gamer PSN account before asking for newer model PlayStation consoles too lol.

1.3

@BaneyFunny Transistor (85 metacritic), Wolfenstein (79), a sale on Strider (77), for no apparent reason half price Grandia (89). Arguably not a great week for Vita owners if Sparkle 2 (75) is not really your thing, but I’d count this as a good week and will buy a few of these.

Hurray for Transistor! The wait is finally over! :D

Any chance you could look into getting some Atelier Totori, Rorona, Meruru, Ayesha or Escha and Logy avatars?
Would really love some more JRPG avatars on the store~

I don’t even… what… wait… why?!! US PSN price for Wolfenstein – 60$. I’m left speechless. 100$! ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS?!!! Seriously SCEE?! Seriously?!!! The game was developed by a Swedish team. Sweden is in Europe last time I checked. So why are we extorted like that?! I don’t think that Bound by Price – Never Forget movement is enough for that anymore. Shouldn’t European Commission check how Europeans are discriminated against?

Also, as much as I was hyped for Transistor… yeah, it’s 33% more expensive in EU. No buy as long as it’s more expensive here.

This message was brought to you by Bound by Price – Never Forget Movement.

Yupp the price is crazy. €60 would have been good (even thought that is also to high)

Thought it was only EA who did these stupid €70 PRICED games :/. Bound by flames and Amazing Spider Man 2 was priced good but seems we are up to high prices again :(

Maybe a good idea is to make a petition or something , a big one that players in EU can do something with this price discrimination’s , talk about this topic everywhere , maybe this will help or starts some revolution .

4.3

Yep. The pricing of digital games is beyond ridiculous. $99.95 AUD for a digital copy vs $64.98 for a physical copy if you pre-ordered at an Aussie retailer. At least with a physical copy, we don’t have to download 20+Gb and it can be traded in once we’re done with it.

SCEE continues to charge us more than SCEA for the same content, and we’re often forced to wait weeks, months or longer for that same content. Then there’s discounted content that the US offers, that we never see. SCEE’s sales are pathetic by comparison.

Can we please have FINAL FANTASY ORIGINS and FINAL FANTASY IV PSOne Classics?

5.1

AND Crisis core, dirge of cerberus and tactics………oh and chocobo racing aha

5.2

and Birth By Sleep

5.3

and Chrono Cross + Chrono Trigger

but let’s face it… there are far too many games that SHOULD BE available in EU. We can spend whole day writing all titles…. but they won’t show up…

it seems SCEE is planning only to count on good will of publishers…

Any chance you could do some communication to bring the Netflix app for the Vita to Europe with SCEA (they do have an app on the Vita)/Netflix, especially since they just announced that Netflix will come to 6 other European countries by the end of this year (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium and Luxembourg – https://pr.netflix.com/WebClient/getNewsSummary.do?newsId=1251)?

Jawad Ashraf 21 May, 2014 @ 15:12
6.1

Netflix and other services are dealt with by various teams, but rest assured as soon as there is relevant information to pass regarding Europe we will let you know.

AlexAtkinUK 21 May, 2014 @ 18:13
6.2

It really is bad as the US Netflix app on PS Vita has been compatible with the UK service since day one. That would suggest it supports the different DRM scheme that they use in Europe so why on earth they didn’t release it is anybodies guess.

Hi Jawad Ashraf , another weekly PSN update so same question as last week : It is really problem to make available Hogs of War for classic for PS Vita in EU PSS Store ? The US PSN market have this game and a lot of other games but EU PSN market don’t . If you notice a lot of people asking about this topic . Can you answer who is responible for adding games ??

Jawad Ashraf 21 May, 2014 @ 15:19
7.1

The original publisher would decide any future re-release of thier own titles. In this case it may be Atari who now control it. Why not express your interest by dropping them a tweet?

Thx for respond . So this mean that we need to contact Atari in this case . I will check it and tweet them .

7.3

you know Atari got no instests to realse games because they only doing mobile games to get more money Atari need to sell there rights to another Dev or Pubshiler

What about IGC update??

supersmith2500 21 May, 2014 @ 15:05

Any chance for more PSone Classics especially imported ones? And can we please have the PSone classics menu back. It’s a bit annoying since only the top-rated ones like Tomb Raider can be found while the rest has to be searched from the search box.

9.1

i try aswer then its really up to dev who put games on store.

10

Shin Megami Tensei PS2 please

Jawad Ashraf 21 May, 2014 @ 15:22
10.1

Ghostlight are looking into it. Taken from their blog post :)

“And before I go, just a quick word about the recent release of Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer’s Call (aka Nocturne) on PSN in North America. While I can’t comment on whether this title will be released in Europe, I’ve been hearing a few stirrings regarding a possible European PSN release for Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2 as PS2 classics. I can’t promise anything just yet, but I’m hoping that this might mean the conflicts with the emulator which prevented us from releasing the game on PSN last year have now been fixed. I will of course provide you with more news on this as soon as I get it, so as always, keep watching this space!”

10.2

possibility.. huh?

possible European PSN release… so that means we have chances from 0.00000001% to 99.999999% that’s not bad…

and what is SCEE doing to make sure that we will get it? or is SCEE just counting on sb. else’s good will?

Jawad Ashraf 21 May, 2014 @ 17:16
10.3

Well it does it depend on the performance with the emulator. Unfortunately if that doesn’t work out again and leaves critical bugs then it won’t be released. We’ll have to wait and see for the time being and hope for the best.

Drakengard 3? Would have bought that if not for Square Enix EU making it DL only in the EU, not only will I not buy it from PSN (overpriced as a DL too…) the “physical” collectors edition also doesn’t have a game disc but does come with a proper PS3 game case (salt in the wound). I won’t support Square Enix on this. Especially since myself and many others complained last year about the lack of a disc and they didnt fix that. The US and Asia both got physical releases too.
Yet when people complained to Konami about no MGS Ground Zeroes PS4 disc release we got one yet Square Enix didn’t with Drakengard 3.

11.1

Same here. It would be a day 1 buy for me but digital-only? Never.
RIP Drakengard in EU. Due to the low sales it will certainly have, caused by the stupidity of those in charge at SE EU, we probably won’t be getting future games of this series or even any game made by Access Games. They’ll assume we don’t want them when it’s clear they are the ones disrespecting the work of everyone involved in this game by doing an incompetent job promoting and selling their game.

11.2

Yeah, it’s really disappointing to see how [deleted] poorly Square Enix Europe handled the Drakengard 3 release, especially when compared to the Japanese release and even to the North American release.

Releasing a 25 GB game as download only, what the hell were they thinking?

They’ve got no one else to blame but themselves if the game ends up bombing here in Europe.

I was actually prepared to buy the Collector’s Edition even though it doesn’t include a physical copy, however the Square Enix Store doesn’t ship to where I live…

@Cloud_AC I’m sure they’ll continue to localize future titles albeit digitally.
When Squenix Europe made the decisions to go digital distribution only for this title they’ve surely offset the loss of revenue from boxed copies with the cost savings of going download only.

Hey Jawad, can you tell us please, why we don’t get anymore demos for ps4?
US got Sparkle 2 demo, but we don’t any reason ?

I would have gotten Strider for that price if it was for PS4.

12.1

Stupid no edit. I just noticed that strider is for ps4 too :>

12.2

he got no much demos and this conplains need be pass on i feel you.

12.3

@Rochala .. Demo’s .. man I rather first have them sort out the library .. I won’t EVER try a demo on my PS4 because it will remain in my library among all my paid content/IGC games for ever. The library should have categories and we should be able to delete demos, trailers etc from our list!

Transistor and Sparkle 2 for me this week!

Could you ask Insomniac Games to give us Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time a PS4 version :)

supersmith2500 21 May, 2014 @ 15:58
13.1

With Insomniac now busy developing Sunset Overdrive for the Xbone. I’d say doubt it.

DoYouLikeMyID 21 May, 2014 @ 16:59
13.2

@supersmith2500

I think Insomniac Games has multiple dev teams. I would be surprised if none of them worked on a Ratchet and Clank PS4 game. I don’t think they’re bringing A Crack In Time to PS4 though. If they are making a PS4 Ratchet and Clank game, it’ll be a new one.

I see scea are kind enough to give there ps4 owners yet another pre order this time for destiny aaaaaand what do we get? Sweet f a

really scee if you cant figure out how to do pre orders on our ps4 psn give scea a call im sure they will give you a simpleton step by step guide on how to do it.im getting pretty disgruntled with scee

Don’t even try to buy Destiny on Playstation. Knowing SCEE, they will price it at 100euro in EU. Because money.

14.2

i think we should ge pre orders so i guess EU again siting on there ass.

Fred Dutton 21 May, 2014 @ 16:39

PS4 digital pre-orders are starting to roll-out from today. If you boot up your console you should see Watch_Dogs on there, for instance.

Nice to see some price drops on those PS4 games. I have both of them but its still nice to see..

16.1

Shame you can still get them much cheaper elsewhere

No DDS? No Nocturne?
No Drakengard for Russia?
BULLIES ;_;

17.1

That’s what you get for invading Ukraine and annexing Crimea, DEAL WITH THAT PUTIN … lol

17.2

@Lt_Combo. Are there a moderators on this site? I thought that insults and political debates are discouraged on Sony’s gameing site.

With regard to the Crimea, it was presented by Khrushchev to sister republic of Ukraine in 1954. After the collapse of the USSR in 1991 the Crimea should be returned to Russia (because Russia became the successor of the Soviet Union). Well it happened 23 years later.

17.3

@Lt_Combo.You even know the name of the president of my country. While I (and I think most of ppl) do not even know who is the leader of the Netherlands…lol

When will we get a response on why EU sony broke promises and made changes regarding PS plus:
*removal of one ps3 game (promised ps4 wouldn’t affect plus output)
*no vita yearly update (promised they would be updated nov 13)
*removal of one monthly update (not even communicated)

Also why, now we are paying for multiplayer access, does Sony feel the need to take the PSN down wihtout communication on a saturday evening!!!

Now Xbox Gold is offering 2 x xbox one games a month, sony better step up its plus service

Wait why is the watch dogs pre-order £60? just when i thought the prices were getting lower after wolfenstien matching RRP -.-

alice_push_lara2 21 May, 2014 @ 15:14
19.1

because we are rich people

lol i’ll probably end up getting the PS store deluxe edition. its £65 but you can buy £35/25 psn cards for £30/20 online. buy a £35 and 25 + 5 from credit card = £55. which is the same as the game exclusive ‘special edition’ but the deluxe edition has 4 more DLC’s

Is Strider cross-buy?

zalwelgoedgaan 21 May, 2014 @ 15:21

Nope, it isn’t. Both versions are separate.

20.2

Then, they should add separate links. They’re making it look like it is.

With the release of Drakengard 3, would be awesome if the other two were released as PS2 classics. Great games, I was surprised to see a reboot of the series as it’s been 8 years since the 2nd Drakengard came out.
(Nier doesn’t count imo as it doesn’t feel like a drakengard game)

22

Jawad, Chris anybody??? I bought Wolfenstein from the PlayStation Store yesterday and was wondering if I am still eligible for the Doom Beta (Whenever that may be)?

22.1

no one showing the doom beta so i guess doom beta was fake or it was awful they dont want to show it so at moment i think beta fake .

22.2

BETA was only for preorders I believe .. also the beta won’t be here for a while .. and people who preordered it it digitally should get it in the mail later or something. While physical copies should include a voucher.

22.3

LT Combo, Zero chance of pre-ordering it Digitally. I bought it for the PS4.

May I ask where are PSX imports? Again SCEE couldn’t even work hard enough to bring those games to us… why? You can’t really say that someone holds rights to those titles right?

Also no Digital Devil Saga….

No sale for Muramasa DLCs

… try harder.

Drakengard pre-ordered on Play-Asia for 39€.
Psysical copy.

I appreciate Transistor. Great game and all..but this new pricing tag for digital games is ridiculous.

29.1

I see the question on Cross Region Gifting in the comments every now and then. What does it mean?

Do you mean one account buying a game and then gifting it to another account in another region? That will never happen, cos the target region may not have the same game (even the same game has different codes in each region, so they are different). Obviously sales in one region can’t go into the ledger book of another either.

If there is even a Same Region Gifting (or even Same Country Gifting), that will be good. At least I will then be able to buy a game that I already own from IGC when it’s on sale in order to permanently own it… by buying with another account and gifting it back later.

Shadowdragoon 22 May, 2014 @ 17:42
29.2

@Uk
Crossregion is what they really need to add, Most disc games are region free. they Crossregion gifting would make it easier to get the DLC whitout having 3-4 accounts, it would also be beneficial for us gamers as we could be gifted from friends in different regions, games not avavible for us. And ofcourse, for sales purposes, a gifting sale should count in the place the giftGIVER is for their books..

The Sparkle 2 devs promised a demo here on this very blog. Where is it?

Good work on the digital price drops by the way – keep them coming

i feel you they show be demos so i think should make complaint to owner of playstation.

30.2

There is a demo on the Vita version.

Jawad, when Atelier Escha & Logy and Atelier Meruru Plus will be available in Russian PSN?
TK said that all settled long time ago and now everything depends on the PSN.

Any explanation for why SCEE decided to:
*Remove one ps3 game from plus despite promises
*No yearly vita update despite promises for Nov 13 update
*removal of one monthly update a year (and no communication of this change- in fact did we ever get one extra update despite what you said).
*Sony felt the need to take the Psn down on a sat night , especially now we are paying for the multilayer service

With a certain competitor now offering 2 x next gen games per month with its online service I think its time SCEE pulled their fingers out.

32.1

And this this relevant to this post because?………

Seriously, bore off will you. If you don’t like PS Plus, don’t subscribe. Easy as peas.

32.2

Very good questions but watch out. Mr. Fred Dutton is man of no honr so he can ban you for asking this question.
@DavoTheDiv – It’s releveant because no one bothers to reply to this question, and there is no way to contant PlayStation PR department who have the possibility to answer it. If this not bothers you then ok, you don’t even have to read this, nor replying to it :)

32.3

Relevant because this is a service I paid for through the store and bought a subscription based on these promises.
Saying don’t subscribe is a ridiculous statement:
firstly I don’t have a choice if I want to play multi-player on ps4,
secondly if i don’t subscribe I lose access to the games i got before through plus,
thirdly my decision to voice my dissatisfaction with cahnges made to a service depsite promises does not mean that I don’t want to remain subscribed to plus.

If you want to blindly accept every negative change in life, then go ahead, but dont coem cryign when suddenly ps plus changes mean you are paying for just multiplayer access and 1 play-station mini a month.

definitely picking up transistor and granda. would of picked up Drakengard 3 but not at that price for a digital title. £30 maybe £40 not a chance in hell

Hi there Jawad Ashraf any news on the youtube app for PS4 that was meant to be released on the PS 4 last week but never got released and I have just had another look and it still is not available and you put it on the PS store release list last week.

37.1

they was on for ps3 last week so i dont know why they put on there again.

>Not available in Russia
GOD WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?

Nice Killzone Shadowfall price drop. Now it’s only twice more expensive than in retail second hand. Or even sometimes new.

Killzone and/or Knack are coming to the IGC!
Nice to see Dustforce get a free map pack, hopefully the lag on Vita is fixed.
Really want Drakengard 3, guess it will be my first PSNow title!

UK_Rocklance 21 May, 2014 @ 15:30
41

DCUO sale price is almost double the sale price in US a couple of weeks ago.

Knack is now finally down to the day 1 srp in other regions. Come on, put that in the IGC already… or is its Metacritics score too low to qualify for IGC?

42

@chad1990 Crisis Core and Dirge of Ceberus haven’t been released on the PlayStation Store in North America or Japan either, so no point asking PlayStation Europe. And as for TACTICS, it wasn’t released on PSOne in Australia or Europe and there’s no point going through the import process when it’s available on PSP and playable on PS Vita. Just wait for HD remasters.

42.1

Yeah but war of the lions was just a remake. Some people would like to play the orignal tactics and on their TVs. Square Enix are nutters sometimes though, if they were to make these titles happen across all PSN store regions then they would certainly empty alot of peoples wallets…I’m only keeping my PSP for crisis core, would rather play it on my Vita n sell the PSP

43

@Vashetti KINGDOM HEARTS games aren’t released digitally I’m afraid.

43.1

which is a real shame.. Kingdom Hearts games on the Vita would be too perfect.

Any news of a future PS3 firmware update to make it more PS4 friendly?

If I receive and read messages on my PS4, they are all unread on my PS3. Quite a juxtaposition there, the systems feel very disconnected.

May as well ask if there’s any news on new PS4 firmware too?

UK_Rocklance 21 May, 2014 @ 16:06
44.1

I don’t see why the PS3 cannot be a remote play client to the PS4. The PS3 is more powerful than Vita, so if Vita can do it, why not the PS3. (Remember, PS3 as a client accessing the PS4, not as a Remote Play server.) Most of us still have a PS3 (or two or three) that could very well be used in another room to access the living room PS4 when that TV is occupied. We need a PS3 firmware update to make this happen.

blendercat27 21 May, 2014 @ 16:19
44.2

This is probably because the messages you read and don’t read are not tracked by PSN. Hard to imagine them changing this – it’s the sort of thing privacy advocates go nuts over.

Guys please answer me do you have any problems with the new PS4 update (1.70), because some people saying they have some bugs, did they fix the problems ? i don’t want to ruin my PS4.

With the PS3-games now on the store, any chance for a Ratchet and Clank-sale? Oh, and excellent sale on Strider for PS4. I was hoping that would happening soon.

Another week goes by and still sad to see that Chaose code and Blazblue Chronophantasma hasn’t been made available for the remaining countries that were left out. And worst part is that Aksys games / Arc system works has been ignoring everyone that has been asking about it and SCEE can’t help getting some info for us. Sigh….I guess will continue to wait for it.

Hi all.

I have a question, when watchdogs released next week, does it still have the upgrade promotion (buy ps3 version gets ps4 version for only 10€)

The promotion was announced before the game was delayed so I would like to know if it still applied

Link to promotion:
http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/09/19/how-to-upgrade-select-ps3-games-to-ps4-version/

thanks, and keep the great work.

StevenJamesHyde 21 May, 2014 @ 16:05
49.1

Unlikely. The upgrade promotions were for cross-gen games that launched on PS3 before the PS4 console launched, encouraging people to buy on PS3, play for a few weeks, then ‘upgrade’ to PS4 when the console became available. That no longer applies to WatchDogs – you can just pick up whichever format you want from day 1

Fred Dutton 21 May, 2014 @ 16:46
49.2

No, as I understand it, that promotion does not still apply.

Goodday Jawath. Can you have a look at the price of Theme hospital ? Its in the may madness sale but its still on its original price. I wanna play so please fix it ;)

Of course! I’ll have this taken care of.

@Jawad – any chance of it being playable on vita soon? The US version works on Vita

Thanks Jawad. Its still on its original price but i think you take care of it today ? And +1 for making this available for the Vita ;)

Hi, any idea on when we’ll find out about next months Plus games?

51.1

next week.

52

Hey Fred/Jawad

Recently the US blog updated their share.blog site and was wondering if it would be possible to have a similar site for the EU as it seems the EU has its own set of issues which sharing on the US site seems to defeat the purpose a little since its been said numerous times that the US and EU sides are separate entities.

At the very least would it be possible to have a worldwide share.blog site, so everyone could contribute, because probably not that many people that visit this site know of the share.blog.

Fred Dutton 21 May, 2014 @ 16:24
52.1

Hey there Ryan. Yes, I’m aware of the SCEA site. It’s something we might look to add – that said, we keep a close eye on the main issues you are all raising and I make sure they are all passed on to the relevant teams. While we don’t have a formal site to highlight this, it is absolutely happening on a weekly basis.

@Fred, was the issue of EU having to pay 60% more for games than US raised as well?

Fred Dutton 21 May, 2014 @ 17:30

Yes, I can assure you we have regular conversations around pricing concerns.

Wait why Transistor for $ 26 the real price is $ 20 why there is an increase $ 6 in I am very sad :( now you make us now hate the Games because of the increase in prices, which is not rational at all, I wish to consider again in prices because it is an exaggeration by thanking very large and considered stealing is not a tax. In the end I’ll Buy a game, because I love games dramatically. thank you <3

Are we going to be able to pre-order Ultra Street Fighter IV like the US can? If not, do you know if we are going to be able to get he pre-order costumes they get in some way or another? I know this is mostly down to Capcom so you might not know, but any info you have would be appreciated :)

DO NOT BUY FIFA 14 FOR VITA!

No improved gameplay, not even no new stats for players, just new jerseys and rosters.

Do not give EA money for this. Show them this is NOT okay.

64

I hope that Atelier games go back on sale soon.
I was hoping that maybe with Rorona Plus being shown at the MCM Expo London Comic Con that they might of been put on celebrate that, and try to entice potential newcomers at the Comic Con event to the series by being on sale.

There is supposed to be some new Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate DLC this week. Where is it?

Hi! Is Transistor going to be out on PS3 as well in the near future?

Fred Dutton 21 May, 2014 @ 16:47
66.1

That’s a question for the developer, Supergiant. They’ve announced no such plans at present though I’m afraid.

UK_Rocklance 21 May, 2014 @ 19:19
66.2

Ubisoft didn’t announce a Vita version of Child of Light either, but yet magically it’s getting released just a few weeks later. Not sure if this have not angered some people though. A lot of people were asking for Vita version a couple of weeks ago, some of them might have bought the PS4/PS3 version seeing that there’s no plan for Vita version. Now that it’s coming on their platform of choice, they will have to pay for it again if they still want it, since the Vita version is conveniently NOT cross-buy.

I don’t know whether to hope that Supergiant pull a Ubisoft. If they do release a PS3 version, I hope they pull a ThatGameCompany.

$100 AUD for a ‘collector’s edition’ of a digital-only game (Drakengard 3). ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS. So much for digital distribution being cheaper, huh. Square Enix is awful.

I don’t understand this at all …

the PS4 price (for a console) is a very good deal, compared to the ps3 back then. But the hell did happen with the ps4 games? They are way to expensive! Best example is Wolfenstein i was very interested in this one until i saw the price tag. I was interested in a few sony games until i saw the price tag…

seriously this is not funny anymore …

On the subject of the “extortion” of the difference in price between the North American and European stores, it is not extortion in any way, or at the very least, it is not necessarily extortionate. I’m no economist, but I do know that things like taxation rates and pay rates vary between European and North American countries and that will cause prices to vary also, for all products.

What is an issue, however, is the discrepancy between the cost of digital copies of the games and the cost of physical copies. The fact that in almost all cases the physical copy is less expensive than the digital copy is, frankly, ridiculous. Hosting the digital copy on a server is much, much less expensive than manufacturing the physical game and shipping it. Those savings are not being passed on to the consumer, in fact, the opposite.

Add to that the fact that you are not actually buying a game but a license to play a game which you can never recover any money from (unlike physical copies which can be sold on) and there is little incentive for a Playstation console owner to build a digital collection. It’s frustrating as a consumer but it’s nonsensical for Sony to build their business model this way. They presumably want to move towards a primarily digital market because that is certainly what the publishers want (to escape from the evil of trade ins, of course). I hope that they see sense and start offering reasonable prices for their digital releases sooner rather than later.

I begrudgingly shelled out the full price for Dark Souls 2 recently and I’m hoping that will be the first and last time I buy a digital copy of a new game that I could buy a physical copy of for less money. I suspect it at least could be since my main reason for wanting Dark Souls 2 at launch was unique to that series. I like having a digital collection rather than a physical collection but that doesn’t mean I’m willing to spend an unreasonable sum of money just to play the latest releases. For now, I’ll be voting with my wallet and waiting until games I want to play come up in a sale or drop in price. I implore any of you who feel the same to do the same.

Did the taxation rate suddenly go up like 60% in the past year or two? Was the game prices not comparable between European and North America countries before? (I should probably say US rather than North America countries, cos the Canadians are suddenly having to pay 10 bucks more for their games, and they are not happy about it.)

No, really, I don’t know – I mean, was European prices always much higher, like game (and probably everything else) are always more expensive in Japan for decades, so much so that people just accept it as fact?

I bet people in Japan get paid much higher too though and it sort of balances out. So did Europeans enjoy some awesome pay increment to justify the higher prices? I am no economist but from what I observed, daily necessities tend to be cheaper in countries of lower standard of living, whereas luxury items will become much more expensive than countries of higher standard of living. It’s not a matter of ‘they are rich, so we can charge them more’....

This higher game prices, does that indicate gaming is becoming a luxury in Europe or does that say something about European standard of living?

I would really like to be able to pre-order this on the UK PSN store but there is no sign even though it is available on the US PSN store and it is meant to be available on the same day in the UK. Or will it get delayed until Wednesday?

Surely this would be an easy thing to implement.

I will post the same thing in every relevant story until we get an answer!

Why so many avatars and pointless themes every week?

I’ll try to wait for a pricecut on Transistor. Nothing else besides that. Watch dogs can’t come soon enough for me.

Prices are awful. Bring more and better sales.

Hello, the Drakengard 3 DLC “Japanese Voice Over Pack” does not work. Will there be a patch ? The US version of Drakengard 3 is allready on 1.01 we are still on 1.00

83.1

I pre-ordered the game (game + japanese voice pack) and got some message saying it would only be playable from the 22 May. In fact, I did the download today and can’t even start the main game now.
Maybe everything unlocks at midnight.

83.2

Updating on situation. Read about it on Gamefaqs. A guy tried the NA version of the game (with jp voices installed) without the 1.01 patch (so, he tried the 1.00 version) and was unable to activate the japanese voices (no option shown). After applying the patch he was able to activate the voices.
So the patch does correct this particular problem. Hope SEE doesn’t forget about us…

Nice! Grandia on my vita, this is gonna be a trip down memory lane!

85

Any info yet when Blazblue Chrono Phantasma will be avaible in the rest of Europe? Quite annoying when a Digital only release gets released and half of Europe do not get it.

The Dustforce Alpha Map Pack shows on the Vita store via search function only but there is no button to download it and it doesn’t show under the add ons tab. So how do I actually get it?

86.1

Same problem here. I went to the store on the browser and It tells me I’m ‘not able to purchase this product for the following reasons : you already own Dustforce’. Strange really, hope It can be sorted easily soon.

An upgrade for Ragnarok Odyssey to RO: ACE would be much appreciated for those who have the older version, that was laterally ” deleted ” from PSN. (I wouldn’t mind pay 10€ or 15€ to upgrade to ACE though) Honestly, permanently delete the game… now no one new will come to Ragnarok Odyssey wish kills its online functionality and a reason for is existence.

Guys, I just have one question: Why do you still bother? Fred and Jawad can’t comment on any relevant question about SCEE, SCEE doesn’t give a damn about it’s customers and there’s a bunch a SCEE employee’s in ninja mode trying to defend their bosses. Our complains are just and fair. Our questions are valid and logic. If the “relevant” people don’t give Fred and official statement to pass to us is because they don’t care.

Also Fred, before the entrance of ps4 to the IGC we get the list of the monthly games in mid month and the games were updates on the LAST Wednesday of the previous month, not on the first Wednesday of the month.

If you can’t give a straigh answer because your boss doesn’t allow it, it’s fine, but don’t ofend our inteligence.

88.1

No, it has always the first Wednesday of the month, it became the last Wednesday of the month because at one point the first Wednesday of the month fell on a day that the store update wouldn’t happen, New years Day 2013 I believe, all they’ve done there is put it back to normal. We didn’t always get the better part of a months notice of what the content would be either, we used to get one weeks notice, again we’ve been spoiled a little and things have gone back to how they used to be, it’s not some sinister plot to devalue the service.

A piece of friendly advice, when accusing someone of insulting your intelligence it helps to make sure that your facts (and spelling) are correct.

You’re right about the dates. Sorry to all that where targeted on that part of my comment. But the part that SCEE doesn’t care for it’s customers is still a painful truth :(

89

Any word on a release for BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma in the remaining countries that where left out from the release in April

Does anyone know if customer support have changed their opening hours. It’s telling me that they shut at 6:30 but I thought it was normally 10?!

91

do people really buy digital games at these prices?! no way i’m gonna pay Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4) €69.99
it’s insane…

92

On the subject on game prices if u buy digital then u gonna get shafted. I just got my ps4:-D buying on ebay or amazon if far cheaper. I got murdered soul suspect for 29.99

93

Already May 22 and I can’t play Drakengard 3. Got the message “The content is not available before the start date”. Will it unlock later today? Apparently there are people playing it in Europe (Eu version) which only adds to my confusion.

93.1

Okay, forget it. It will be playable at 12.00 AM.

News on watch_dogs bundles for pre order on ps4 would be nice thx.

I3loodthirsty 22 May, 2014 @ 10:24
94.1

The watch dogs pre orders are on the store, the basic edition is £59,99 the “deluxe” edition is £64,99 (doesn’t Inc the season pass like the scea version)

95

any word for Legend of Legaia as classic game ? and Wild Arms 2

96

Not sure if it’s been pointed out but the Japanese audio DLC for Drakengard 3 won’t work because the games day one patch isn’t avaliable for us to download. I’m not sure of this effects the other DLCs however.

97

I have 2 questions:

1. What’s the chance that Strider will be on next months PS+ or in a future PS+ (say July or August) if it’s zero or low i’ll buy it while it is on sale.

2. Any update on Guilty Gear AC+R ?

98

Talk, talk, talk. If Fred is to be believed Sony spends an awful lot of time listening to our complaints and talking about them. How about doing something about it for once? If Sony wants their finances to improve maybe they should stop ripping off the entire Europe zone in every way possible, and put some genuine effort into getting releases and fair prices.

Charging more does not net you more money, it nets you less because more people refuse to buy and you damage long term customer relations. It’s so utterly simple, why can’t businesses get it? Digital Only especially needs a huge mark down in price because you need to sway those of us who try and avoid it and to hit that ‘impulse buy’ sector, especially on more niche titles.

Hi guys, I’m about to buy Grandia for my vita (french market) but I don’t know if the problems on the French version of the game have been solved (game crashes on CD2) or if it has been fixed.
Thanks !

Hello,
when will you change the yearly Plus games? And when will you announce them?

101

Drakengards Japanese voice pack 5€ really? Really?

101.1

Not only that. It doesn’t even work. At this moment you can’t activate the voices in-game. Square-Enix Europe say they are looking into the issue and that reinstalling the game and voice pack again (by that order) might solve the problem. I’m doing just that but really don’t think it will solve anything (SEE probably just buying time).
Version 1.00 got a day 1 patch that solved this problem but the Europe contact says we already got it included before the game was released here. Well, the problem persists…

101.2

* (previous post, 2nd paragraph) the version that got the day 1 patch was the NA version.

Hi Jawad,
Offtopic: you explained that other departments are responsible for the Apps etc for PS vita. (like Netflix) can you please tell who is responsible as it’s really stunning to see the Netflix app is still not available for Europe also many other apps USA have but we lack! The PS vita is incomplete because of this and Sony is still wondering why it doesn’t sell that well? I love the system in terms of Games, but the lack of Apps is really getting ridiculous!!! I’ve also spoken with people who work with Netflix and they say that the app is already finished but Sony doesn’t want to release, maybe this isn’t true but at this moment I’m getting pretty dissapointed in Sony treating Europe as a pet eventhough it’s their biggest market share! also the fact that for PS3 we still haven’t got Counter Strike: GO!!!! Unbelievable!!
On topic: Nice store update!! eventhough I’m really dissapointed in Sony at the moment!

102.1

CS:GO is a Valve problem not a SCEE problem. It failed QA and was never resubmitted.

When I download and install the japanese audio pack for Drakengard I cannot seem to find the option to change the language anywhere??

104

Hi, When will The Last of Us PS4 be available for Preorder on the EU Store? I know you are working hard on putting more preorders on the store but I’m worried I will miss the preorder bonuses.

StefanBurlacu 24 May, 2014 @ 12:30
105

It is a good update, indeed!

106

What I really want to see in the store is, The old ps1 classic “Heart Of Darkness” I miss that game so much!

And Tony Hawk’s underground 1 and 2 and Tony Hawk’s: American Wasteland….

And last but not least… Def Jam: Fight For Ny

Please Sony! (:
