New to PlayStation Store: CounterSpy, Reaper of Souls, Sword Art Online

Also check out Hotline Miami for PS4 and discounted Rockstar titles

First up, get sneaky in CounterSpy available for Vita, PS4 and PS3 today. The moon is in danger of being nuked so naturally it is up you as a C.O.U.N.T.E.R agent to put a stop to things whilst showing off your espionage skills.

Following CounterSpy is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls The Ultimate Evil Edition, containing both Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion set, together in one definitive volume. Rise as one of humanity’s last defenders – crusader, barbarian, witch doctor, demon hunter, monk, or wizard – and collect legendary loot while mastering devastating new powers and abilities.

Continuing a strong week is an all new Vita exclusive based on the anime (in turn based on the novel) is Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. Set in an MMO-like world, SAO is an RPG that offers players solid gameplay where combo attacks, execution speed and knowledge of the opponent will be mandatory to survive.

To round off the week there’s a list of Rockstar titles on discount and the Summer Sale is also winding down in its final week.

So, while US gets Crimsonland for 7 bucks with crossbuy, we’re getting vita version with “crossbuy” (this is not crossbuy, this is just a bundle) for 20 bucks.
SCEE, what the hell are you doing?

According to 10tons it must be cross buy, not a bundle or anything else.

I love how Minecraft is such a big success and #1 in PSN since months! Because people love to create and be creative and let their imagination run wild, this is what gaming is about :) ! And the game supports custom mp3 soundtracks on ps3, how amazing is this! But why do the excellent Rogue Legacy and Counterspy (BRILLIANT! games) not have the custom mp3 soundtrack feature?!

This is strange. PS4 version of Crimsonland is €10, but the Vita version is €13.

It seems that the vita versions has cross buy but the ps4 not, according to the devs it shouldn’t be like this.

@10tonsLtd Hey guys! isn’t #Crimsonland crossbuy? It asks for money even thought i have it for PS4 or I just have to wait for #PSN upgrade? –

@10tonsLtd @RochalaHimself Yes the crossbuy texts are in but only in PS VITA versions. PS4 version in SCEE is without crossbuy description.

10tons @10tonsLtd
@1Siger1 @RochalaHimself shouldn’t make any difference, it should always work both ways as far as we know.

Ah man, the demo is so fun! If they fix this whole crossbuy/price thingie, I’ll buy it right away.

2.3

I was all set to download Crimsonland, having already bought it on PS4 VERY DISAPPOINTED.

This is a ridiculous update overall:
Crimsonland for Vita not cross-buy with PS4 version.
Hotline Miami for PS4 not cross-buy (I already have it on Vita/PS3, NOT paying again!)
Diablo III is RIDICULOUSLY overpriced, especially for those of us who bought already on PS3
PvZ on PS4 ridiculously overpriced (not that I would buy it anyway)
and finally Tecmo’s insistence on ruining the Dead or Alive franchise continues with more over-priced costumes that don’t even work with DoA5 original version (I was a big fan but they have SOILED this series with their unbelievable greed and will never buy a game from them again now I see how their business model “works”).

Today, I am a very disappointed PlayStation fan. It’s almost as if Sony don’t want us to throw money at them any more, and instead would rather us throw something brown and stinky at them.

Come ON, Sony, this is no way to treat customers. Rip-o...

restricted availability of The Last Tinker dam it sony i dont care about the dam rules and laws in countrys about games if it was up to me i would kick out all of sony staff and take over sony and bring out all games for all countrys

who ever set the game rules for each country is a silly braindead zombie

Any plans for :
– Dante’s Inferno(for PS3) and Dishonored get available in russian store ?
– Persona 4 Arena or it’s “ultimate” version get back?

Chaos Code still not available in Russia.

Persona 4 Arena was removed probably on demand of Atlus. There is new upgraded version of game coming…. so probably no it won’t come back.

@ghettokid1987

I have seen Persona 4 Arena on sale at various online retailers such as Zavvi or Play for around £10 -£15. Not sure if they post to Russia There is also some cheap ones on ebay. Don’t buy the US or JP versions as its possibly the only game on PS3 that is region locked

“Persona 4 Arena was removed probably on demand of Atlus. There is new upgraded version of game coming…. so probably no it won’t come back”

I’m not Vanga to say whose decision it was. But the US and JP stores are still have both versions of Persona 4 Arena (standard and ultimate), instead of EU stores, which now have none of these from a recent time.

No Last Tinker in Belgium (or anywhere else outside of UK and Germany)? Darn shame :(

But you have chocolate!

Belgium has more than just chocolate…they have also given the world Plastic Bertrand, Front 242, Gruesome Twosome and back in the 80’s they had Paul Weller postage stamps.

Any news of a release date for Don’t Starve: Reign of Giants DLC (without the main game)? It’s not on the PS4 DLC list.

Search for “Don” in web store and you should find full game with add-on and add-on as separate download.

Finally time to get my Nerve Gear on with my Vita :)

Will pick up the red dead double pack, if one piece pirate warriors 2 was £19.99 I would of picked that up as well, but still to expensive for my taste, know it’s a lot cheaper than a physical copy but sure it’s been on sale for a lot less

THUNDERCAT1973 20 August, 2014 @ 15:17
10.1

Also at that price sword art online can wait for a sale.

10.2

@Thundercat1973
If you are willing to wait… and if you would prefer retail edition. (IF! If not ignore it)

Visit official thread on Bandai Namco UK page and say so. One of the mods said that it is worth to be vocal about it, and if enough people will declare that they want retail they MIGHT (or might not) reconsider.

Anyway chances are low…. and Bandai Namco is cool anway :)

@Archacus You being paid by Bandai Namco? Second time on here you’ve called them cool.

About SAO if anyone prefer retail edition I was advised by moderator on Bandai Namco page to be vocal about it.

1. Visit
bandainamcogames.eu/community/topics/sword-art-online-hollow-fragment-eu-release

2. Leave comment saying that you would prefer retail version.

Chances are low, but they might reconsider it if enough people will want it. Maybe there will be chances to get complete edition with DLCs? Dunno but it is worth trying even if chances are low.

Anyway with current prices I don’t think that many people will pick it up right now… 39 EUR for digital only…

DoYouLikeMyID 20 August, 2014 @ 16:07

I just left a comment on there saying I want a retail edition (politely, of course ;) )

Like you said though, chances are probably pretty low, but we can always hope :D

12.2

@DoYouLikeMyID
Thank you :)

If we won’t try we won’t get it for sure :) Leaving one comment takes like 1-2 minute, I think that it is worth trying even knowing that the chances are very small :D

DoYouLikeMyID 20 August, 2014 @ 18:09
12.3

@Archacus

Definitely. Fingers crossed :)

Sword art online £32.99, The US store its $39.99 which is £24, Looks like we get shafted again.

Luckily I got the Hong Kong version which is in English and a physical retail version.

Have to say extremely disappointing game considering the Anime was so great

13.1

but there are many DLCs which you won’t be able to download.

I advise you to be vocal about wanting retail edition. Namco Bandai is cool company and they are listening. Somewhere above I gave link to thread on official page.

Thunderlizzard 20 August, 2014 @ 17:13

US prices don’t include tax so you need to take off 20% VAT before you compare. Pre-tax price is £27.49 which is actually a lot closer to it’s US price than most titles.

If you want to complain go for Diablo 3 which is £59.99 UK and $59.99 US…. or tax adjusted £49.99 ($83.21) vs $59.99.

Then again Diablo 3 is £59.99 on PS4 and £29.99 on PS3. Talk about fleecing your customers. I haven’t checked for sure but I’m pretty sure the premiums levied on new-gen games are the highest price hike in console gaming history. I can’t remember any other generation where they jumped 50%.

P.S. The fact that we’re done for 20% VAT and the US tax is usually around 5% makes the price discrepancy much worse but that is something you’d have to take up with the Gov’t not Sony.

13.3

Bewilderingly Namco Bandai said it would be £29.99 at launch: https://twitter.com/BandaiNamcoUK/status/502015987752120321

So why is the Rockstar sale on xbox Live this week generally better? Great looking out for your customers.

THUNDERCAT1973 20 August, 2014 @ 15:20

Microsoft paid more money or Rockstar like them better, chance are it will be one of thoses

Maybe Rockstar are still annoyed about the former Sony employee who uploaded Manhunt 2 to torrent sites. If I recall it was before it was released and Rockstar were pretty angry plus Microsoft probably plied them with cash

madmanwithabox12 20 August, 2014 @ 16:00
14.3

I wouldn’t say R* prefer MS. If you look at E3 and whatnot, they seem to be closer to Sony – PS3 GTAV bundle with headset, GTAV revealed as a PS4 game during Sony’s conference, exclusive PS3 blimp etc.

You are aware that you can actually buy these PSP games on places like ebay.

They will never give cross gifting or a means to sort our download list or a reason why they consistently overcharge people on content or why bits of dlc and games never make it to EU store.

I wish we could use explicit words on here. There are so many I want to throw at you for spamming this all the time. It’s so *£&*%$ frustrating.

IT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!

Honestly? Seriously??!!! The Last Tinker is £18.99! The US Store has it listed as $19.99 and has it on sale for plus users for $14.99. Well I’m not buying that, especially as conversion shows £18.99 to be $31.62. LOOT is the publishers or dev of that game they can keep it

The same goes for Sword Art Online £33 for a digital vita title which by the way comes to $55 and is being sold on US PSN for $39.99. Guess I will be buying the Japanese version after all.

@Izorpo
Before buying HK version of game please consider being vocal about wanting retail in EU :) Of course only if you want,, if you don’t care please ignore it :)

Visit official page of Bandai Namco and enter thread about SAO.

If enough people will say that they want retail they might reconsider it (one of official moderators advised me to do so)

@Archaus

Problem is its very doubtful they will…that’s why we don’t have physical vita releases for EDF 2017, all the Atelier Plus games, One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 (they didn’t even bother with vita release at all), Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn (know its usually Koei Tecmo but they published the last one).

I would have purchased SAO if it was between £25-£29 but at that price no. They can keep it

16.3

There is
Dragon ball and One Piece game on Vita released by Bandai Namco.

So that’s not impossible.

Kinda bad idea to release dragon ball though…. I mean everyone was fan of it 10-15 years ago… but since then there were countless similar games, and people got already bored with them.

Also SAO is now more popular (probably even more popular than One Piece in Europe which is hit in JP)
-anime airing
-aincrad episode will be completed in 8 days (release date of yenpress translated Light Novel)

It’s not impossible, so give it a try, mkay? You never know. :D Only if you want ofc.

Hi Jawad, I am really disappointed that we still did not get the Japanece Voice DLC for Dynasty Warriors 8 Complete Edition for Ps4. It should have been released on July 30th. Is there any news ?

agreed

It’s really getting old the endless waiting for nothing to ever come

Sorry, I don’t have any more info at the moment :(

its not in NI store because sony dont give a flying monkeys

£15 more for the PS4 version of PVZ? That’s a massive jump in price, almost insulting.

Almost? £5 would be reasonable, £10 would be unfair, £15 is most certainly insulting.

ps3 games are like £20 ps4 games are double

i dont care if ps4 is alot better when i own one but sony put all prices on ps3 ps4 at the same stuff the developers of the game ignore them and set the price your self all them people care about is the money and not us lot who wants the game and cant buy it

I would buy the RDR Undead Nightmare pack but I am waiting news of Minecraft PS4’s release and price upgade details, for those that had the PS3 digital version.

I heard it has been put through testing so I assumed it would be released either today or next week. So Jawad, got any news on both release and pricing for Minecraft PS4?

Bad news for all waiting for minecraft (since I didn’t get an answer here by the staff). Just read on IGN that it’s failed the testing stage before publish and might miss the August release window.

is Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment HD still included with Hollow Fragment?

It’s just part of the game. It’s not a separate thing.

Why is last Tinker not €19,99 and €15 ( for Plus) like announced in yesterdays post?

Jason Sorensen 19 August, 2014 @ 9:52 pm 3.1
Hey there! The game is €19.99, except for PlayStation Plus members who will receive a discounted price of €14.99.

And the game not being available in most of Europe is a joke. Guess ill grab off the US PSN.

I got this reply at their facebook page:

Hi Yiannis,

Looks like there’s a pricing error on the Europe store. We’re currently working with PlayStation to fix it. Thanks for your patience! -JS

Welcome to digital gaming and greedy publishers diabolo 3 is £30 extra than ps3 version wow…

Asking £60 for ps4 version and just £30 for ps3 for a game that’s been out over a year is greedy .. and shame on the people who have supported this

25.1

Shocking, isn’t it? I got Diablo III last year and although I thoroughly enjoyed it, it’s not a £40 game (what I paid at retail). Adding in an expansion and a few new bits does not make it anywhere near £60. If anything it’s now about worth £40. That does make sense – I reread it :’)

Blizzard made Diablo III? If so aren’t they a part of Activision….that alone pretty much tells you why the game is priced that way. Guess you might consider yourself lucky that they didn’t charge extra for any cut scenes

I was looking forward to getting this game but with the typical scee price con I think I ll wait till it’s either on sale or until I can get it from the scea store as that will no doubt work out cheaper.

Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition – PS3 = £29.99, PS4 = £59.99

Well done Blizzard. I’ll wait for a sale thanks.

26.1

€39.99 for PS3, €69.99 for PS4. Its a digital store remember ? Im going to buy it later today in a retail store, no promo or anything and it’s priced €29.89 for PS3, €59.89 for PS4…

Digital should be less or at least equal, not more.

26.2

This is absurd, I could understand a difference like Ground Zeroes (10€), but almost the double of the ps3 version is way above what I expected, not buying at this price… Especially since I have the PC and just wanted the ps4 version for some couch fun.

26.3

Insane isn’t it? Would have bought the PS4 version at £30 (despite having already bought the PS3 original and there being no upgrade scheme – fail) but £60? That’s just insulting.

Pretty “meh” update this week, nothing for me. Those Rockstar sales though! Tempting as all hell… are you trying to bleed me dry SCEE? I just spent a bunch of cash on them there vidya gaemz the past few weeks because of the sales hahaha.

Still yet to play RDR and for just over £6 that’s very tempting. The Warriors on PS2 is just awesome and I’m intrigued by Chinatown Wars. Curse you, Rockstar/SCEE! *shakes fist*

I know I ask this a lot, but any word on the likes of Dragon Fantasy Book II, Mutant Mudds Deluxe, 1001 Spikes, BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma etc on Vita? NA has had some of these for quite a long time and I’m not quite sure why some of them would take so long to make the jump overseas?

28.1

Get Red Dead immediately. Best game on PS3 for me (and second only to Super Mario Galaxy 2 as game of the generation). For £6.49 it’s criminal to avoid it. Don’t get the Undead version though, can find it cheaper online and in shops.

THUNDERCAT1973 20 August, 2014 @ 15:52

I would have jumped on this like Steve Irwin on a deadly crocodile, but I’m a bit apprehensive having recently spent a lot of money on several games across PS3 and Vita lately what with the Summer sales and Rogue Legacy coming out and whatnot. I’ve got an enormous backlog right now on both systems and the last thing I want is to make that backlog even bigger hahaha.

You should really offer more trials + unlocks for PSN games – considering refunds are not possible

30.1

Thankyou for your €69.99 no refunds!

30.2

It’d also be nice if they could refund the money/credit for utterly broken content that doesn’t actually work. I have several PSN downloads that simply don’t work. At all. Yet customer support won’t do a damn thing about it. Thieves.

Any chance of a discount of Sports Friends any time soon?… Looking to pick it up! :)

Jawad AshrafPS Store Team
The Last Tinker: City of Colors £18.99/€23.99/$35.95

Whats happening lately ? Do u put ur own personal tax on it jawad ? This happens a lot tbh .. prices in store higher than what the developer says.

Not that i mind as much this week cause of :
Not available in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine
but for the other people who can buy it .. its a slap in the face again.

And we all know the developers set the prices, right Sony? SCEE became a real joke.

Haha. Those Tinker guys weren’t joking when they said that they liked beer a lot. Thing is, they’re Germans, so they should know how it feels to get ripped off in Europe when it comes to prices *points at Nintendo and their horrible price fixing in the 90s where they got fined for*.

Ah well, on the US store it is actually 19,99 / 15 as advertised, so not my loss

Typical American, telling others what to do.

yep Americans suck…I try really hard not to be but if you really want to distract them set up a booth giving away free stuff (it doesn’t matter can be empty tin cans, gum whatever they will queue for blocks for it) and have a parade…its like leprechauns and polishing shoes. It’s a genetic defect, they can’t help themselves

Disgaea 4 demo. Oh yeah. Cant wait to stuck into this one. For me it is the benchmark for rpg. Trouble is it renders most rpgs simplistic by comparison.

Sorry to bother you again but could you or someone check out why I can’t get all BGMs from Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends DLC Stage & BGM Pack 9 and Stage & BGM Pack 10. Only BGMs I got were DW7 BGMs from Stage & BGM Pack 10 but not any of the DW3-DW6.
Thanks in advance!

Are there any PS+ discounts for the Rockstar sale?

The price for Tinker has put me right off, was expecting it to be £10 or so.

tough

What is with SAO’s price? I’m definitely waiting for a sale then
There seems to be Xillia avatars, I might eventually get them or something, Would be cool if we had Vesperia too

41.1

$55 for SAO while it is $40 in US? That is goddamn overpriced for a digital only game

42

No news on a Persona 4 Golden discount. I want to buy the game but 40$ is a bit too much, Hoping we get a discount soon.

madmanwithabox12 20 August, 2014 @ 15:50

P4G was discounted earlier this year actually. Besides, you can probably find a physical copy for around £20 or less.

DoYouLikeMyID 20 August, 2014 @ 16:22
42.2

As @madmanwithabox12 said, it has been discounted earlier this year… twice I believe… and in the christmas sale. It’ll probably be discounted again at some point. If you can’t wait for that, Amazon currently has it for 14£, so if you’re fine with physical copies (which I actually prefer to digital, as they don’t fill up your memory card as much), then I’d recommend getting it there.

That sale on Midnight Club: Los Angeles seemed very tempting, but i just found out that the servers are closed and therefore all online trophies (and the platinum trophy obviously) are unobtainable. I know a fiver is still not bad for the content you get with the single player, but am i the only thinking it’s a bit of false advertising if it is nowhere mentioned here or in the PS Store that such a big and important part of the game has become inaccessible?

43.1

Very frustrating when this happens – they need to add online trophies as optional, the same way the DLCs trophies are.

The_Atmultima 20 August, 2014 @ 15:45

So, what about the Xillia 2 DLC that the US store got today? The Level + 10 stuff.

They will be up (though surprisingly not on a Friday).

Robinworldwide 20 August, 2014 @ 15:47

I was tempted to buy Midnight Club: Los Angeles, but i just found out on a trophy hunters site that the online servers have closed. Because of this the online trophies (and therefore platinum trophy) are unobtainable. I know that a fiver is still not a lot for the single player content you get, but am i the only person who thinks it’s a bit of false advertising if they don’t mention on here and neither in the PS Store that a big and important part of the game is not functioning?

zalwelgoedgaan 20 August, 2014 @ 16:16
45.1

Sony doesn’t care, lol. They put the Resistance games on the store right after the online servers were taken down permanently.

Ahhh remember the good old days before trophies…I’ve retired as a must platinum all games I play because I’m mental and suffering from extreme OCD. I will only plat a game I like and really enjoy now.

Buying a 3DS was the best thing I did as there are no trophies or achievements, just playing a game I want to play for the sake of playing a game. Strange concept I know but don’t let not being able to acquire certain online trophies put you off playing a game. Why deprive yourself the experience of playing a game you may enjoy just because a plat isn’t viable?

Since deciding not to let trophies dictate the games I play I’ve found I’m actually enjoying gaming more.

Robinworldwide 20 August, 2014 @ 17:16
45.3

To each his own. I am perfectly able to obtain trophies AND still enjoy the games i’m playing. My point however was not just about trophies but about a major part of the game no longer functioning without it being mentioned. A few posts under this one someone is explaining how RDR:UN is unplayable in some cases. I just feel you can’t as a company sell incomplete/broken games without a warning, not even for a very low price. I’m pretty sure in a few countries that’s even against the law.

They have a special section in the store called ‘Playstation Mobile’ :) They are usually cheap and you can find some nice little games there. The two i mentioned are what i have made ^_^ It is for Vita

Hopefully Deal of the week is coming back with some kick ass offers after the summer break.

Where is the DLC Kurisu for Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds on PSVita ?

Quite excited for SAO! You know, the exclusive Vita game you didn’t bother to mention at Gamescom. Or any other Vita game, for that matter.

The vita is the black sheep of the sony family, nobody even wants to remember it ever happened.
