So i noticed that aksys finally released avatars for NA but what about the EU? will we ever get aksys avatars? really unfair, does anyone have contact information about these guys?

1.1

sucks that we never get the good avatars the US gets.. we keep getting stupid lips with country flags on them.. lol

EternalChaos72 29 October, 2014 @ 15:17
1.2

tell me about it cognac, those silly meme avatars are awful i want gaming avatars not non-gaming related :/

If you look at all the avatars the US has over us its ridiculous. They even have Samurai Heroes (Basara) avatars, ones from various psp games and oh the ones released here for some games like Samurai Warriors they actually get more characters.

I think I might just set up a dummy account on facebook just to use images for my avatar (like Kazama (from Hakuoki) or One Piece or have a Basara Mori Motonari with his cool green hat

PS3 store freezes the console!! Fix it! A lot of people have this problem

2.1

What is the chance of Saints Row 4 being in the IGC soon?

2.2

Oops, misposted that :(

2.3

Here also, why updating the store if we cannot acces the store.
I have 2 PS3 consoles, both will freeze when entering the store and need to do a hole system check after freezing.

Hi jawad
Why i cant pre-order Call of Duty Advanced warfare on Qatar PS store
I want to pre order it before its officially released

4.1

Please make it available jawad Pleaseeeeee

4.2

And assassin’s creed unity

4.3

Unfortunately we do not open pre-orders to Qatar at this time, sorry.

At what time can we expect the November Playstation Plus update?

5.1

I would guess 5pm again as they want it to be at a time that suits the Americans, as happened last month

Probably delayed- maybe two weeks this time. Some ones got to win te internal competition they are having at scee for seeing fm who can annoy the most customers with a delay. At the moment it’s a toss up between the csgo saga and the driveclub mess up

If it’s as bad as last month then honestly I don’t WANT to know.. knowing I paid a yearly subscription for games I played 5 years ago is just depressing.

No Costume Quest 2 and where is Unfinished Swan in the update?

8.1

The Unfinished Swan is listed. ;)

Wheres unfinished swan ps4?

9.1

It’s listed, just not under the PS4 category.

ICG for November please

11

Dude, announce the PS+ Nov games already!!

11.1

I can tell you one of the PS4 IGC is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
More info at: bindingofisaac.com

Why isn’t Unfinished Swan listed in either PS4 or Vita releases? I had a mini heart attack when I didn’t see it there first.

13

Only a demo for Deadfall Adventures ? Where is the full game, it was supposed to be released today and it’s already up on the US Store ?!

Hi, how’s Nidhogg doing in regards to the certification stuff? Can we expect it sometime soon?

Jawad GTA San Andreas (PS2 Classic) isn’t on the store anymore & given what happened on Xbox Live with the Classic being replaced with a remaster, does that mean we are also getting it or has a bug caused GTA SA PS2 not to appear when searched for ?.

ste_the_legend 29 October, 2014 @ 15:14
15.1

I would also like to know the answer to that. It’s no bug, that’s for sure. M****soft paying for a timed exclusive on their consoles seems the most likely explanation but then why can’t someone just come out and say that? Hopefully the remaster will come to PS3 soon because I would love to go through San Andreas again with trophies.

Freedom Wars week! At last! Although, Amazon’s estimated delivery is next week for me so doom on them >:(

Can’t wait for the game though, hope everyone enjoys it! :D

Also been considering Unfinished Swan. Never played the original so now might be the time to jump in. :o

On a more negative note: Are SCEE going to do anything about those Konami PSP titles? They should be compatible with Vita and the problem is apparently on your end, so either a fix or an explanation would be greatly appreciated. I don’t understand why these games are being made unavailable to Vita owners and would appreciate some clarification. =/

On the other hand, I appreciate that the Vita store has been cleaned up. It really needed it. Some of the invisible games have reappeared, so that’s a plus (however, I noticed Final Fantasy X/X-2 is strangely missing). The more precise alphabetisation makes it easier to navigate and find what you want. Doubles still exist though (Borderlands 2 and Sly 4 still show up twice...

No costume quest 2 in time for Halloween ? Well done Sony *sarcasm*

17.1

Hopefully a mistake as it’s on the US store.

17.2

No mistake . No release date for Europe :-(

18

So trick or treat?. Usually get some kind of sale, not that partial themed one from last week, expected a bit more tbh, not a massive problem though, also Prototype2 Gold?, surely not a different version of the (very good) couple of year old ordinary Prototype2, what’s in it I wonder…

18.1

No mistake . No release date for Europe :-(

18.2

Sorry that went in wrong place . Appologies :-(

I pre-ordered and bought a physical copy of Freedom Wars and there were no DLC codes at all. The store where I bought it doesn’t know, either. Is everyone getting the DLC for free or what?

19.1

Could be only certain stores doing it. I noticed Shopto doing it but didn’t see it listed in GameStop so maybe not all stores have it.

zalwelgoedgaan 29 October, 2014 @ 15:17
19.2

Which would be incredibly lame, if so. :/ I rarely pre-order games for their DLC, but when I do, things often go wrong… If Sony says right now that both digital and physical buyers get the DLC, then the problem will be solved.

The one I pre-ordered at Shopto has Rescue Pack dlc coming with it

Was planning to pick up Outlast for €5 today for halloween, but apparantly that is US only, yet again. Why?

21

Where are the free Destiny and Advanced Warfare themes for PS4?!

21.1

Probobly in same department that capped the US RRP as same as for PS3 games, but chose to make EU ‘customers’ pay much more, either there or office across hall.

21.2

I’m wondering the same thing. Hey everyone this is playstation here and I’m here to tell you about our cool new update 2.0. Did I mention it has custom themes. In America and Japan you’ll be able to use two free themes right away and for Europe. Well for Europe we appreciate all the hardware sales we get from you guys. Your sales last gen literally saved us from a MS trashing so to reward you guys we are going to make you wait for the themes and remain very silent about it while you wait. Thanks for your business it is really appreciated and as little added bonus we decided to give u discounted games. Yes you heard that right for 70 euros you can buy any digital copy. This is such a great saving because Americans have to pay so much more for their games at a whopping 60 dollars. Have a nice day fans and keep on gaming.

@ geddesmond2 comment of the week

Hi Jawad, I got two questions for you, if you can please answer them.

First the Tiny Troopers Joint Ops is only for ps3/Vita but in the store game description, it mentions PS4 too, is it a mistake or the PS4 version will come an other day ?

The second question is about singstar, I can find a clear answer if ti works with the PS4 mono headset, did you know anything about it ?

22.1

it works with the headset …

Thanks!

22.3

PS4 version will be released at a later date.

Hi Jawad, i have a couple of questions:

– When the Gran Turismo 5 servers went down, all DLC was removed as well. Now i’ve recently noticed they’ve returned on Playstation Store. May i ask you when (and possibly why) did that happen?

– Does the Complete DLC pack (and the complete edition) of Need for Speed Rivals include the “Ultimate Racer Pack DLC” in the Loaded Garage Pack? Last year there was a fiasco when the URP was suddenly removed from the Loaded Garage Pack without notice, and then added to the accounts of the people who first purchased the game before the description was changed.

– When Persona 4 Ultimax will be released, are we getting all DLC currently available in the US?

– Any ETA for Deadfall Adventures full game?

– When will you guys announce the November PS+ titles?

23.1

I wish I understood the difference moving the content made, not played that so no idea of the impact it might of had. I have recently noticed though that both GT6 saves aren’t unlocked any more, one is but one has a lock on, given the notorious problems with updates for this, sometimes causing system formats! That was also a sly little move, no info anywhere, that I seen, luckily I have cloud on other AC, but might be problems ahead for any that don’t.

23.2

1. GT5 DLC returned some weeks ago. I’m not able to get into more details, however.

2. Rivals should include the Ultimate Cop pack, which also came with the Loaded Garage pack.

3. Cannot confirm P4U DLC yet but it is likely to arrive at the same time.

4. I’m not aware of a fixed date just yet.

5. Should be quite soon.

23.3

@solarwind12: huh?

@Jawad: thanks, but that doesn’t answer the question about the RACER pack… i already own all previous DLC, i’m just curious if new buyers will get the same issue as last year.

No Walking Dead PS4 or Costume Quest 2? There goes my Halloween gaming plans :(

There are actually quite a few scary / horror games available on PS4. The Walking Dead is hardly a Halloween game in all honesty. Why do people presume zombies are Halloween? George Romero, for instance used zombies as a critique of gross capitalist consumerism in Dawn of The Dead (this was a ferocious attack on American consumerism), Night of the Living Dead for instance was highly political (re: anti Vietnam War sentiment) but in retrospect also deals with racism. Day of the Dead was an attack on governments and military.

The first zombie film White Zombie (1932) was about the plantation enslavement. They also weren’t about nom nom munch munch zombies but about the ones created to be used as slaves in the remit of voodoo or vodun. The horror of films like this wasn’t about zombies out to get and eat you, it was about the fear people had about being enslaved. Serpent and the Rainbow was specifically about this.

Halloween has never had anything to do with vampires, werewolves or zom...

The first zombie film White Zombie (1932) was about the plantation enslavement. They also weren’t about nom nom munch munch zombies but about the ones created to be used as slaves in the remit of voodoo or vodun. The horror of films like this wasn’t about zombies out to get and eat you, it was about the fear people had about being enslaved. Serpent and the Rainbow was specifically about this.

Halloween has never had anything to do with vampires, werewolves or zombies. It is essentially a celebration of the harvest, as well as the veil between the physical and spiritual has been somewhat lifted. Supposed contact with the dead is easier (re the dead as in ghosts or spirits). Like the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead it is about honouring the dead (as in relatives) you know appeasing the spirits. Witches or rather women who were demonized because they either tried to commune with the dead or were in contact with demons.

Hey, Jawad,

Could you please tell the operations team to have a look at the Dead Space not bundled version that was supposed to be discounted a week ago? It’s not showing the discounted price yet (€14.99>€4.99).

Thanks in advance.

Following titles getting on the SEN store?
PSP:
Final Fantasy Crisis Core
Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (yes I know of 2.5 hd remake, but thats not playable on portable device is it? ;) )
PoPoLoCrois
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Thrillville
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
PS1:
Xenogears
Suikoden II

Why I keep asking (for the PSP ones), I got most of these on UMD, but I do not want to have to drag the PSP whit me in adition to the Vita. And for those that do not get remakes, it would be sad that people would not get to play them in the future. I adition, soon these could be fun to play on PS TV device. You know that poor device will need all the games it can get, just as the Vita.. Also added some games to the list by request.

Any new information on Cross Region Gifting.
Like steam have had for years.

I do mean gifts would have to be purchased as giift. (not transfearal of used). Kind of like how I can order a physical version...

Kind of like how I can order a physical version from US and use it, I want o be able to buy a digital version (or DLC) on a american account and gift it to my main account as to not have to logg different acounts to manage my games.. Or to send gifts to a friend, or recive gifts from a friend.

Oh, and to anyone complaining about me reposting, if they (SCEE, Not other people) would just take time to reply, something like: We have brougt your suggestions to the correct people/departments. Id shut up (about the things in the post) for atleast a few months.

When can I expect DriveClub Plus Edition?

It’s been three weeks now & you don’t communicate at all.

I expect a really nice compensation.

through Evo FB updates – no DC for ps+, lol

Compensation for what? A free demo that they have no obligation to give you?

Hi Jawad. What happened to San Andreas on the PS Store? Can we expect an upgraded version to go up there soon with Trophy support? :)

40

where is the LBP3 pre-order? its be out in a few weeks

Whats happening with a bunch of games that have been on the US PS4 store for a while now, some of them for weeks, e.g. Pier Solar, Nidhogg, Escape Goat 2, as well as ones from this week – Costume Quest 2, Home, #Killallzombies?

42

Just a heads up for anyone who wants to pick up Freedom Wars and has been following impressions and videos of the Japanese version, apparently the ability to customize the speech of your Accessory has been removed from the Western versions of the game, in spite of the fact that the text to speech software in the Japanese version does recognize and work with English text (with accents and the usual limitations of text to speech software but it’s still generally recognizable).

Starhawk Build&Battle DLC 1.00€ per bulding please. Or both for 1€.

Lords of the Fallen is €64,99 in the PSN Store instead of € 69,99 as advertised on the Blog. Is it really that hard to double check before posting, instead of making the same mistakes literally every week?

or retail for 50 Euro ^^

44.2

And people call PC gaming expensive… it’s 49,99€ on steam.

its 50€ in retail, i would love to go digital in this gen, but with this prices… nope

So i noticed the US PSN store had a destiny and CoD ps4 theme.

Will we as EU people already be behind on themes in the first 2 days of being able to use em ?

1) I was wanting to know if there is any more information regarding the release of Onigiri (f2p mmorpg on PS4) as it was suppose to be out this summer.
2) Any indication how far off is the release of Oreshika Tainted Blooded? Will there be a physical version?
3) Will we ever get My Singing Monsters?

46.1

Oreshika… I think that they will make stealth announcement “it is coming to Vita next week as digital only, be greatful!”

+1 to the Onigiri question.

When trying to search info about Onigiri it seems its available in English for the PC >.< guess its PS4 release has just dissipated into the ether.

I signed a petition recently about physical release of Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines. It would be really nice if it came with a 140 page art book like the physical release of Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus

Uwaaah… Freedom Wars lost the fight with Unfinished Swan…

I mean, that’s the biggest Vita release so far… and it didn’t even deserve a cover picture for whole thread? Not cool Mr. Jawad :( It deserves way more spotlight.

Anyway… any idea what is the case with Freedom Wars Network Pass? Article said that it is no longer needed… so why do we have it? American PSN doesn’t have Network Pass.

zalwelgoedgaan 29 October, 2014 @ 15:35
47.1

The US blog has a Freedom Wars thumbnail on the main page because they love freedom.

The EU blog has Unfinished Swan because…

…well, you can guess why.

I think the online pass was removed for western release as well as “tweaking” the difficulty spike.

47.3

@Izorpo
But it still exists… that is why I ask :) I’m not to bothered by it as I ordered from UK shop… but yeah… curiosity.

Unfinished Swan is listed above but it isn’t actually on the store for Ps4 or Vita! The link above goes to nothing!

Don’t Die Mr Robot was due today, there was a blog post last week about it. Gutted for the devs, that game is awesome!

This is now scheduled for November 5th. Remember, remember…

NO DON’T! REALLY!
DON’T DO IT!
DON’T BLOW UP PALACE OF WESTMINSTER!

PRETTY PLEASE?

@Archaus

Why not? Might actually get politicians to get their snouts out the trough once and for all. Really we need to get past this whole notion that we need to pay people large sums of money to tell us what we can or can’t do. Spending taxpayer money on lavish goods to furnish their homes, pay for their utilities and council tax. Not to mention funding wars to destabilise other countries while hanging on the US coattails empire building agenda and spending taxpayer money to bail out their rich corporate and banker “mates”. While taking away social programs that actually benefit the majority and not the 1%. Privatisation of resources, transport and utilities and not to mention wanting to poison anyone unfortunate to live near any proposed fracking sites.

No gods, no masters…

This isn’t probably the place to suggest this but have you guys heard of a Kickstarter project called “The Black Glove”? It has been announced that a PS4 version of the game is in development and I think, due to it’s quality if it doesn’t get the backup it needs, then Sony should back the project and make it an exclusive. It could be another of Playstation’s quality exclusives.

TroubleMaker411 29 October, 2014 @ 15:27

Alternatively, everyone should get to backing it!

What about the free themes for PS4? Also is anyone going to give an update on why we cant sign in to youtube?

Hi jawad, will there be any preorder for Tales of Hearts R? If it’s having a digital release…?

56

A good update but could be better if Walking Dead and costume quest 2 was on time and waiting for ps plus next month games to decide to get ps plus again.

if Costume Quest 2 dont come out time it wont sell a lot because seems want to get game before holloween day i cant blame them so guess this update a trick right.

56.1

The Walking Dead will be available on PS4 this Friday :)

A lot fans angry

Will there be a batman arkham origins gold edition/ ultimate bundle like there is in the US anytime soon?

supersmith2500 29 October, 2014 @ 15:45
63.1

Another game I own, great. -_-

64

I wanted Costume Quest 2 for PS4 because of the trophies. If it is not on the store by friday, then I don´t care about the trophies and will buy the Wii U Version which releases tomorrow.

It´s on the US Store. What´s up Sony?

When will Nidhogg arrive?! Maybe it is a ps+ game for november?! Then I won’t mind waiting..

66

I’d quite happily forgo any Store updates for the next month if it meant a stable PSN on the PS4…why is the PSN ok on my PS3/Vita?

Still can’t get logged in properly, still can’t delete messages etc…

No Costume Quest 2, no Nidhogg…..and no communication on what the delay is.

Very poor. A delay is fine if we’re told about it and given an explanation. Maybe its beyond Jawad’s salary to take the initiative to find out and report back?

Sony has revealed the line up of games PlayStation Plus subscribers can expect for November, including Binding of Isaac (PS4), Steamworld Dig (PS4), Luftrausers (PS3/PS Vita), Frozen Synapse (PS3/PS Vita), Hungry Horde (PS Vita) and Escape Plan (PS Vita).

Ohhh, don’t mind getting 2033 Redux now

Still better than last month. It’s a shame both “PS4” titles are playable on Vita, like everything on the Plus list.

Hi there, when should we expect Home for PS4/Vita, as well as Costume Quest 2?

77

wow the themes finally showed up in the store for me . wat the hell are these themes youve gave us ? a stupid paper boat and sum blocks . whilst usa got destiny cod themes .. wat a joke you treat your e.u customers like [MODERATED]

I suggest you take down the bit about the ninja rap leading us to think everyone’s favourite song will be on singstar. I think we’ve had enough disappointment for one month.

Hi Jawad! Question time, will any of these be on sale before christmas?
Batman: Arkham Origins -Season pass (at reasonable price please!)
Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (PS3)
Deadpool (PS3)
Prince of Persia – Epilogue DLC
Army of Two: The 40th Day DLCs
Assassin’s Creed – Revelations – The Lost Archive DLC
Assassin’s Creed III: Every story DLC in a bundle
Dante’s Inferno: Trials of St. Lucia
Dead Rising 2 DLCs
The Amazing Spider-man DLC Pack (PS3)
Watch Dogs – Bad Blood DLC (PS4)
The Walking Dead – 400 Days DLC (PS3)

79.1

Deadpool was deliste a crapload of months ago because MARVEL.

ps: for Dante’s Inferno, i would wait for the discounted Super Bundle.

Most of the other DLC are just too “obscure” to even be considered for a sale, just my two cents.

80

First: Where is Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror for my PS Vita?

Second: What is wrong with you? Saints Row IV 9.99? Normally 19.99? Come on! I just bought Saints Row IV Game of the Century edition from store last week, price 29.99? It comes with everything! So, why? I wish I could use my PS Vita with US account, I’d never bother with EU again.

Where the heck is Costume Quest 2? Lemme guess. Typical Sony Europe unforeseen issues…?

82

THANKS for giving us the Ys Celceta discount!

Will we get the usual -10% PS+ member discount later?

Last Light Redux for me! Only wanted that game out of the 2 so never bought the disc version!

What about the PS4 no going out of Rest mode? This is more urgent than a PS Store update…

85

Hi, I bought the Tales of Xillia 2 Costume set and there is no PS3 custom theme with the dlc. Please help. Thanks.

85.1

I can’t even find the costume pack to buy.

oh and also are there going to be any more Samurai Warriors 4 avatars? I really want Yoshitsugu Otani as an avatar. The US got him yesterday…when will we?

No Singstar app?

Singstar app for ps4?, it was out last Friday already if you look into the store :)

88

Good news, Deadfall Adventures is now available to purchase at £15.99/€19.99/$29.95 (not available in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Ukraine).

fps_d0minat0r 29 October, 2014 @ 18:20

Good news would be when you announce some good PS+ games.

Okay, enough is enough! What is going on with SCEE? No costume quest 2 means you have severely reduced it’s chance of sales, here’s hoping double fine sues for damages. The server issues across the board are unacceptable, fix them. We pay for them now so you have an obligation to do so. Missing games? 1001 spikes? CS:Go? Nidhogg? Silence isn’t an option. Look at yourselves the Wii U has a better catalogue of of first party titles and you can’t even be bothered to chase up indie projects. I am so frustrated and mad I can’t even make this post coherent. Sunset overdrive is out Friday. Maybe I should get an Xbox one and play that. I mean if you have a damn about insomniac games we could have been looking forward to that on PS4?

zalwelgoedgaan 29 October, 2014 @ 17:09
89.1

It’s funny, I never cared for Insomniac games, but I’d rather play Killer Instinct/SO over any current PS4 exclusive out now.

From past interviews, the reason Insomniac went with MS is because they allowed them to keep the IP. If Sony funds a game, they want the entire IP. Insomniac also wants to stay independent, they don’t want to be bought by Sony like how they acquired other studios like Sucker Punch.

I have to agree with Link1983, people are going to buy 1001 Spikes and Costume Quest 2 that is not yet available on SCEE’s European Store on Steam now due SCEE’s extremely poor QA. These two games I mentioned are out now on Steam and SCEE is going to lose sales because of this. And on top of that, they delayed Don’t Die Mr. Robot by one week when it supposed to be today for no reason when a few people managed to play it. I have to feel sorry for RSI for this one.

And the worse part is, Microsoft’s Xbox One has much better exclusives, features and even cares about their fans. Sony’s PlayStation 4 however has average exclusives, constant server issues, limited features (even voice commands can’t be used when playing Driveclub), constant mistakes, broken promises and fails to advertise their handheld bigtime. I’ve been a loyal PlayStation fan and this is all I get? Seriously if this keeps up, I’m switching to Steam. I can’t take this anymore and getting tired and frustrated of this.

And in speaking of Insomniac Games, I’m glad they made a right move by not wanting to be bought out because really. Sony will just lay off their studios, constantly delay their first party titles and shut down their studios. I’m done.

Maybe you should get an X1, the PS community will be better off without guys like you.
Be a man and show Sony you can do it: buy the X1, make the switch and cancel PS+ as fast as you can.
BAM another consumer lost, that’ll show Sony. Not whining in forums, hurt them where it’s worst, the wallet.

PS4 exclusives are much better than the competition. M$ doesn’t care about anyone but themselves. The constant price drops and money-hatting of exclusives is a desperate last-ditch effort to boost sales in this holiday season. It isn’t sympathy, it’s self-preservation.

Jawad, if for whatever reasons, the Dead Space not bundled edition price isn’t going to be fixed before the discounts expire, those of us looking forward to grab it would appreciate an answer, regardless of it being positive or not. A simple yes or no will do it. Thanks.

93

Costume Quest 2??? Home??? I was looking forward to some pre Halloween gaming with both of those titles. It’s kinda wasted if Costume Quest 2 comes out after Halloween seeing as it’s a game about trick or treating at Halloween?!?

Heya Jawad! Nice update today. Glad to see so much hit the store. I have a few questions though.

1.) I hugely love Vita and can’t wait to get my copy of Freedom Wars, but (unrelated) this Network Media Player introduced… Any info on what media servers are compatible? I have a few but none of them seem to read my folders and files that actually contain playable content.

2.) Do you guys have ANY news concerning Costume Quest 2? I play the original every year and held out on the Steam version in favour of PS4 but still no news and Hallowe’en is almost here.

3.) I backed Pier Solar on Kickstarter and the guys have been a little hesitant to mention anything on the process of the EU release. I don’t suppose you can give any clearer hints?

Thanks for even reading this if you do. n_n

94.1

Hello.

1. I am not entirey sure, but I would imagine something like Plex ought to work. Sorry I can’t give more info, I’ve yet to try it myself.

2. Costume Quest 2 is underway for EU. That’s as much as I can mention. Keep an eye on DoubleFine’s Facebook for updates.

3. Similar to the above.

Wish I could be more specific.
