New on PlayStation Store: Destiny DLC, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, more

Plus, Yakuza 4, Yakuza: Dead Souls, Rock Boshers DX and new Christmas deals

Bursting through the doors first this week, Destiny sees an all new expansion, The Dark Below, which features new weapons and armour, increased level cap, new arenas, new story missions – generally a lot of new things to tackle into the early hours of a new day.

Lara Croft also makes a return in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. Sequel to Guardian of Light, there’s a new story to get involved with all the while doing what Lara does best – avoiding death traps, solving puzzles and protecting yourself from enemies.

Over the weekend during PlayStation Experience, you may have noticed SEGA’s Yakuza 4 was released on PS Store (and Yakuza 5 releasing next year). There’s a lovely catch-up in the game to get up to speed with the lore, in case you wrongfully ignored the game the first three times or, just need a much needed refresh of all the twists. And if you just want something silly but still related, then Yakuza: Dead Souls is also available.

Lastly, the 12 Deals of Christmas will continue on, so there is still time to grab an early Christmas treat to sink your holiday hours into.

No weekly deals?

1.1

They did say they’d be postponed through December given the 12 Days and 20th Anniversary sales.

Lame…the anniversary deals and 12 days deals have been pretty poor so far.

Anniversary sales aren’t amazing but I picked up Little Big Planet Vita for £5 or so which is pretty awesome :)

Hi again. This time I have some things to say regarding Vita TV:

1) I’m having problems with my PSN Store LiveArea screen. Usually it shows the most recent releases and all that around the main start button, but on Vita TV, it just shows the Store LiveArea screen like it would be my first time using it, displaying the basic text about Store’s functionality. I tried to refresh the screen, visit the store, download games and refresh again, clean my console settings and refresh, and lastly formatted my whole console and still it didn’t show the LiveArea screen correctly like it does with my regular Vita. Is this a thing among other Vita TV users, or is it just me? And is there any way to solve this? And yes, I’ve already contacted the tech support team about this.

2) Vita TV’s media applications lineup is severely lacking. Even Youtube doesn’t work. I don’t care much about Netflix and all that, but Youtube? There’s no reason for it not to work on Vita TV. Is the updated, working versio...

Hi again. This time I have some things to say regarding Vita TV:

1) I’m having problems with my PSN Store LiveArea screen. Usually it shows the most recent releases and all that around the main start button, but on Vita TV, it just shows the Store LiveArea screen like it would be my first time using it, displaying the basic text about Store’s functionality. I tried to refresh the screen, visit the store, download games and refresh again, clean my console settings and refresh, and lastly formatted my whole console and still it didn’t show the LiveArea screen correctly like it does with my regular Vita. Is this a thing among other Vita TV users, or is it just me? And is there any way to solve this? And yes, I’ve already contacted the tech support team about this.

2) Vita TV’s media applications lineup is severely lacking. Even Youtube doesn’t work. I don’t care much about Netflix and all that, but Youtube? There’s no reason for it not to work on Vita TV. Is the updated, working version at least on the way? US’s selection is generally seen as lacking, and comparing that to the current situation in EU is just laughable.

3) Sega Megadrive Collection doesn’t work on the device, even though the compatibility list says so.

4) The PSN store application itself has many games missing from the listings, but somehow still shows many games that aren’t compatible with the device. The Store really needs some extra work to be done with it.

5) How about having more options to adjust the screen when playing PS1 games? Like with the original PSP? Some games show as letterboxes on the screen, and it would greatly benefit for those to be able to be adjusted.

6) I transferred some music from my computer that included Scandinavian letters in their titles. Everything was shown well when using the content manager, but after transferring the music to the actual device the titles of some tracks went bonkers with their length reduced to few letters, some of them being eastern characters? Even though the device itself shows all the system text right in my language. Any idea what could have caused this?

Other than all that, I’ve enjoyed using the device and Freedom Wars and many PSP games have played beautifully on it. I just hope you could address these and other problems current users have brought up to make the device more worth it.

I ♥ how you keep using “Vita TV” name.

Vita needs more ♥

2.2

@Archacus Haha, thanks, it is a conscious choice. Because that is what the device really is to me, and is supposed to be – PS Vita connected to TV. And I expect the device to have all the manageable features that the normal Vita has, minus the touchscreen. camera and all those kinds of things for obvious reasons. But there shouldn’t really be any PSP or PS1 Classics that won’t work on Vita TV that do work on a regular Vita, not to mention Youtube.

Oh, and cheers for Suikoden 1 and 2 coming to European PSN next January!

hmmm a week or so ago it sounded great but now…well I’m going to wait.

It’s failings remind me of how the PS4 seemingly can do all sorts of social things except send and receive text messages on the weekends…with the messages failing to be sent and failing at 97%. Even better the notifications stating you’ve received a message and are unable to access it. Meaning you log out the ps4, maybe try on vita to read messages but mostly its log in on your ps3 to read your messages and respond….wow that’s some technological progress

Any news on fixing the cross buy vita download for owners of the retail Ps3 minecraft?
It’s been 8 weeks and waiting.
I’ve spent over 10 hrs in queues and calls with the Psn customer service and it’s always the same. “The issue has been logged and they are trying to find a solution”

8 weeks is a bit excessive right?

8 weeks sounds about right. It took them 2 months to restore the batman content after PS+ IGC releases broke it.

They still haven’t fixed the store link for the PS3-PS4 Minecraft upgrade either, so nobody can find it.

3.2

Speaking of broken cross buy games, I still can’t download CrimsonLand on my Vita after buying the PS4 version because European store techs didn’t add the entitlement on the PS4 purchase. It works if you bought on Vita though. The reveal post on this blog said it was cross buy, the store update post that day said it was cross buy, the site itself said it was cross buy, the 10Tons website said it was cross buy, and in the US they made it cross buy, but SCEE made a mistake and it still hasn’t been fixed. Can we please get a comment on the cross buy issues with Minecraft and CrimsonLand because it’s getting daft now.

I had no problems with digital release. Now playing Minecraft at my Vita and PS3. No problems with cheap upgrade to PS4 version either. Lucky me?

COSTUME QUEST 2!!!!!! REPLY PLEASE!

4.1

You won’t get a reply from Sony. It’s Sony policy not to discuss QA issues, that, quite rightly, is up to the publisher.

I used to work in games QA and have friends that still do and give me the odd bit of gossip, which is how I knew that the PS+ version of DriveClub was being cancelled a week before Yoshidas letter to us. Basically Costume Quest 2 failed QA on the PS4 both before and after Halloween, as it’s a themed game Double Fine took the decision to not submit it a third time because they felt it wouldn’t sell this late on. If you still want this on PS4, you need to harass Tim Schafer and get him to drop the ego and fix whatever stopped it from passing QA in the first place.

4.2

Hi @Angelus3K, just to let you know (and something I don’t think was reported here), but it’s believed that Double Fine submitted the game to EU’s QA department twice and it was rejected twice on PS4. I can’t remember where I read it but they also said they wouldn’t be resubmitting it to QA.

Why the hell didn’t costune quest 2 pass? It passed on PS3 and ps4 in the U.S. It’s a freakin Halloween kiddy game lol. Well whoevers fault this is screw them. I won’t be supporting anyone by not buying it until it hits ps4 eu. Tim Schafer should submit it again since double fine has financial issues and could do with the money at the same time why have I got to have stuff removed from the game for the eu while u.s. Gets to keep them in. I’m sick of having games ruined by sonys eu policies. They ruined last of us mp and South park.

Jawad is there any chance we could get Ape Escape on the ps1 classics? i would play it on my disc copy but for some reason the game has problems processing the controller and i can’t get past the main menu

5.1

I know they’re not going to reply but THIS X A MILLION.
I am so upset that my disc version refuses to work.

A short message for Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics:
No Rise, no Osiris

6.1

We’re getting Rise. So why are you here?

A short reply from Square-Enix:

Rise is still a temporary exclusive, yes Osiris ;)

It hasn’t been announced for ps4. And based on Microsoft publishing it maybe it never will.

Hey jawad

i bought the Retail version of Lara croft and used that seasonpass code already. Can i still buy the digital version and use the seasonpass from the Retail for it ?

7.1

As long as your digital game and season pass use the same psn account you should be fine.

8

When are we getting 1001 Spikes?

8.1

Best bet is to try an contact the developer/publisher, they usually have more of an idea, unless it’s been with the SCEE QA team, they seem to hold on to things for a while sometimes.

They said “after Binding of Isaac Rebirth” IIRC. but it’s been a long time now lol.

I have tried tweeting them and got nothing back.
A simple eta isn’t too much to ask or even if it is still coming to the EU??
Would love to know what the hold up is??
Not that we will ever find out, another EU PSN mystery!

Tomb Raider is tempting me…

Are we going to get more weekly deals today ?

Not while the 12 Deals of Christmas is happening.

no Costume Quest 2 for PS4, has it been cancelled? And can we please get Legend of Dragoon too.

11.1

They will just ignore us about Costume Quest. I think they have just cancelled the PS4 version. Such a shame, but completely unacceptable no-one will tell us directly. They’ll just try and sweep it under the carpet.

Costume Quest 2 EU had to replace Yakuza 5 in the list of “Completely M.I.A.” games somehow.

11.3

Sony are great about telling us things they want us to know about. As soon as we ask about something they have no interest in its insta-stonewall.

Just checking, but is the Persona 4 Ultimax DLC Additional BGM 3 priced correctly?

Because it’s one song and all the other packs that have just one song have been 79p, not £1.69 (which seems to be the standard price for packs of three songs). It’s also worth noting that all four of the packs that contain only one song are permanently free in North America AND Japan whilst we have to pay for them (as well as not having a free period on Adachi and Marie). So I’m more than a little hesitant to jump on one song for the price of three. Can you look into this Jawad?

Sorry, but kind of tired of being lead on with this game in Europe. I love it to death, but the way SEGA Europe and Atlus have treated us has been terrible. =/

Will next Wednesday’s PSN update be the last of the year?

As the week after that is Christmas Eve and after that New Year’s Eve.

Normal people work till 17:00 or so on those days .. and the store should be published by that time. So i think we get normal updates ?

crimsonidol-de 10 December, 2014 @ 15:50

US-PSN got an update last year as they were in the same situation as us know, so we should get three further updates (17th, 24th, 31rd). But to be honest:
I expect that we will only get one last update on 17th ’cause SCEE. :(

crimsonidol-de 10 December, 2014 @ 15:57

Looked it up. Seems like US got one on Christmas Eve last year, but not on New Year’s Eve. But in 2012 they got on both dates:

Is there a chance of Hatsune Miku project diva F getting a discount in the 12 deals of Christmas or some other sale in the near future? The game is still full price despite being 1 year old (and 9 months on the vita version)

15.1

The age of a game rarely dictates the PSN store price, it’s not like the physical game market. Also, in my experience, they don;t usually give you heads up on future sales, and highly doubt they’ll give advance warning on 12 Days deals.

Why is Awesomenauts Assemble £34.99? What’s happened there, I already purchased a long time ago on the PS4 and it wasn’t that much.

It’s the complete version ,all add ons.

16.2

What add-ons? You mean the skins? 40 EUR? Christ..

sad but true!
DLC would have been a better word to use though, my mistake.

Yakuza Dead Souls, something “silly” for Jawad, interesting idea.

“Silly” in the grand Yakuza scale of things, yes.

One quick question:
Will the prices for the Project Diva-costumes be fixed for the people who own the Costume Pass? It tells me I would have to pay 1,50€ per costume or 8€ for all of them, even though I own the pass. :\

Hi Jawad, any ETA for Soldner-X 2 on Vita? It was announced back in October, for a “Winter” release.

Fix error when adding Lara Croft and Temple of Osiris Season Pass to basket :-(

Why so quiet on telltale games getting reduced? Worried people might want refunds after they were ripped off?

22.1

I may be way off base here, but pretty sure the T&Cs for using the store include you not getting any kind of refund on any purchase.

22.2

SCEE Store policy is “No refunds, ever” … but there was something on twitter about the telltale situation. Might wanna check their channel

@frimo_online

Except when the company behind the game actually is going to give refunds to early purchasers.

Just curious because I got the Season Pass for it anyway, but what does ‘DUP’ stand for in the Destiny Expansion I listing and WHY IS THAT LISTING IN ALL CAPS? ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO SHOUT THAT TITLE?

First of all, if you have any interest please purchase Yakuza 4 to encourage Sega to continue with this series and other niche titles in the West, also it’s great so you won’t be losing out.
Secondly, although The Witcher has been delayed until May 2015 lets recognise the fact that CD Projekt have actually got a digital pre-order onto PSN for a decent price (£40.50 if you haven’t seen it). So well done to them, I know they won’t but lets hope Ubi,EA etc. take note.

That is a pretty good price but all the stuff you get in box for this game you really should get the boxed version. Right now I don’t know whether to go PC or ps4 for this anyway. Anyone know if there has been an announcement on save game import?

Why would anyone interested in Ryu ga Gotoku series need to buy the digital version Yakuza 4…especially as most people (like myself) would have bought the physical version on release. If they want to put the HD Collection, Kenzan or Ishin out in the west digital only I would buy them despite owning Japanese versions

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

It would really fit whit the season too now rigth? a easy way to gift someone a spesific game for christmas.

I do mean gifts would have to be purchased as gift. (not transfearal of used). Like how you can get physical copies from abroad, you should be able to get digital ones too.

How soon are the 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 (portable ie, Vita) remakes, it would be sad that people would not get to play them in the fut...

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.

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.

Ridiculus, still no Costume Quest 2 for PS4. Well, if you don’t want my money I’m not gonna force it onto you….

And as Jawad will ignore my previous post, There seem to be a problem whit the PS3 20 year theme ( https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/en-no/games/themes/playstation-20th-anniversary/cid=EP9000-NPEO00168_00-TPLAYSTATI000004 ) it do not show a download button on its page, and I do not find it in the PS3 store either..

Not a problem. Sadly, on PS3, it’s one of those themes that you cannot tie to your account, and have to download manually from the PS3 store. Bummer, i know. The store is full of those semi-obscure themes and wallpapers.

31.2

Thanks Lance, now ill have to find where to DL it, and why did SCEE do it so troublesome..

32

Dear Jawad or other PlayStation person,
Do you know anything about the ‘TV from Sky’ app and when it might arrive in Ireland? Apparently even Sky Customer Care believes it should be live for us by now, they’re blaming you guys :)
Also, obligatory request for a USB Video Player even though it’s totally unrelated to Store updates.

Thanks.

I guess this really is our winter of disCONTENT..

Heh, post 33 made at 3:33 pm. Couldnt have timed that better :P

Is anyone as Sony towers going to acknowledge and fix the current E-82000102 error that is effecting thousands of users across the globe right now? You can’t add or buy anything from the Store, either via the PS4 or website, without it throwing up that error code all the time.

I am sick to death of nothing working properly on this console. Is there ever just one week without crashes, downtime, Store bugs, etc, etc. PSN literally stands for: Pathetic Network Solutions.

If I were a prospective buyer this Xmas, PSN would really put me off from buying a PS4 over an XBO right now.

Yeah someone needs to address this issue ASAP. I am also sick that Sony is not acknowledging this issue. I can’t add the Shadow of Mordor DLC to the basket although I am a season pass holder. I can’t even buy Destiny on sale. Always the same error weather it is from PS4 or PC or even iPhone.

They won’t adress the horrific messenging service so I why would they address other issues.

3 games for me this week…not too shabby PS. Thsnks

Any info when is gonna be released Journey for PS4… it was scheduled for later 2014… so only 3 weekly updates more…

Nothing for me today, was interested in Tomb Raider but not buying because of the timed Xbox exclusivity on the other game, also it has a season pass, lol!
Please put walking dead season 2 Vita on 12 deals of Xmas so I can actually get something from one of the deals ^_~

@Jawad

Well it’s a step in the right direction, 58 more legacy tracks for Rocksmith, but still only a 1/3 of the way there. Also no sign of any of the last months worth. I am trying not to be negative as there has been SOME movement at least but is there any updated comment after last weeks “I will look into it” comment? When can we expect the rest of the world will start to see us in their rear view mirrors again? If you could just give us an idea of when we will have to wait until, it might stop a lot of the complaints (might not, but at least a little transparency might show you guys in a better light)

38.1

Don’t worry too much though, as you can get a free Hendrix track on PS3! But not PS4. Chances are the PS4 won’t even get that track next week, and when it does it’ll be 150% of the XBox 1 price. Merry Christmas from Sony.

38.2

I was trying not to draw attention to that in case it was a mistake. Having said that, even if it was a little something by way of an apology for weeks of no content, it doesn’t do anything for PS4 users who (assuming it gets posted some time before the end of Jan) are entitled to it free anyway. Nor will it ultimately matter anyway considering most players would look at buying the packs for Hendrix.

38.3

You have to realise the Music business is an old beast full of red tape.
Just adding a platform for DLC would probably require some legal work and i’m guessing those people in an industry that has almost disintegrated are few in numbers.
I bought Rocksmith on PS4. The audio lag is terrible but i’ll hang on to it for the free Hendrix DLC next week.
I bought it on Steam also and get much better results with all the DLC available for purchase.
While that works fine, playing it on a Mac is incredible……No audio lag whatsoever.

Still no costume quest 2 for ps4????

Well, thanks for free Jimi Hendrix song, but where are other Rocksmith 2014 DLCs for PS3?

Hi Jawad,

Firstly, thanks for the Rocksmith content that has been put up so far.

Is there an update as to what is happening with the expansion pack allowing us to play the original Rocksmith content (pre-2014 edition), as that is still not showing on the store, and neither are any packs of the songs?

Thanks in advance.

Well, thanks for the free Jimi Hendrix song, but where are the rest of Rocksmith 2014 DLCs?

Why the hell does it have a season pass to anyway?

Saw that as well – they get this sort of thing wrong so often – I often wonder what sort of muppets they have working for them.

Which brings me to the muppet question from Lost – so that they can gouge us for more money of course – hopefully making you think you get great value by paying for a couple of extra levels in their painfully short game – levels which should have been there in the first place.

Go to Settings, PSN, Resore Licenses.

@MaxDieHard

Thanks! but does not work, just tried it, and this is Pinball Arcade not! “Zen Pinball” my gut-feeling is that the game needs an update before it will read this latest DLC, really pi**ed off, Sony should not be able to take money for content that is not working, very unhappy gamer right here.
