New to PlayStation Store: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, MLB15 The Show and more

New additions also added to the Easter Sale

Ready for another round of punishment? From Software’s unforgiving Dark Souls II gets repackaged in the Scholar of the First Sin. This is the definitive edition, including previously released DLC, overhauled enemy placements, and a nice frame-rate boost on PS4.

Also out this week; smash some homeruns with MLB15 The Show, or get exploring and find secrets in the intriguing looking Axiom Verge available for PS4.

On a final note, Easter Sale continues until April 15th, now with additional content, such as Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, Tales of Xillia 2 and other great titles on offer from last week.

Any new information on Cross Region Gifting. Now, EU might be helping in a way whit some part of the legal issues prevening gifting of regionlocked games of this, as EU wants to ban Region-locking. (Just google “The European Commission Wants To Remove Regional Locking On Digital Goods”).
Like steam have had for years. And still do for gifts purchased from US-version.

I do mean gifts would have to be purchased as gift. (not transferral 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 that’s not playable on portable device is it? ;) )
PoPoLoCrois
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Thrillville
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
Jeanne d’Arc
Phantasy Star Portable 1 and 2

PS1:
Xenogears
Digimon World
Digimon World 2003

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 addition to the Vita. And for those that do not get (portable i.e., Vita) remakes, it would be sad that people would not get to play them in the future. I addition, 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.

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

1.1

Stop spamming.

1.2

Sony, please give us a mute option. Sick of this boring person’s spam every week.

1.3

Oh no, here it comes again.

Wait, what about the Project Diva F 2nd DLC that’s supposed to release today?

I’ve been checking the store since midnight for ~nothing~?

2.1

Indeed, there is a DLC set supposed to be released today. In fact, it was released yesterday in North America, and we always get it in the same week as NA.

Anything you can tell us, Jawad? Thanks.

Jawad Ashraf 01 April, 2015 @ 15:42
2.2

There are some DLC planned for 8th April – that’s all I know for now.

Ah, really? :/

The PDF2 site (http://miku.sega.jp/f2/ps3/en/dlc.html) still has 1st April down for Europe, and America/NA got the DLC yesterday (and the Europe store usually gets the DLC at the same time)…

Looks like I’m gonna have to poke SEGA about it, too…

Do you know when we can expect the Vita release of Axiom Verge?

Best you can do is follow the guy who made the game. He has to do all the work, so who knows how his schedule works. Could be soon, but i suspect we have to wait till the end of summer, just a guess though.

4

Hi, a few questions – will Axiom Verge be a ‘cross-buy’ title for PS Vita? and if so will it work on PSTV?

Thanks.

madmanwithabox12 01 April, 2015 @ 14:58
4.1

Yeah, Axiom Verge is cross buy but the Vita version isn’t coming for a while.

X_Blood_Curse_X 01 April, 2015 @ 14:09

Would have preferred a few more Vita titles added to the sale, with maybe some PSP/PS1 classics, but thanks anyway.

Gonna wait on a sale for Axiom Verge

6

Those BF: Hardline prices aren’t really deals. You could get them for those prices at any other site or retail outlet.

That aside, I’ll look into Paranormal Pursuit.

Have you listed all the additions to the Easter Sale this time or do we have to go digging around in the PS Store to see all the offers again? I hope it’s the former.

8

REMINDER: If you had Woah Dave! through ps+, buy it again to get the proper version (without expiration date).

8.1

I’m proud to CONFIRM this, lol. Yay for the cross-buy glitches :P

8.2

@ Lance_87. It’s not a glitch mate, it was announced as a ‘secret’ extra PS+ game for April.

8.3

It IS a glitch indeed, genius. The game is no longer attached to Playstation Plus after you buy the PS4|Vita Bundle.

San Andreas is back! Any info on why got delisted before?

9.1

I guess they removed some songs. Anyone wants to verify? Here’s the list (from the PC version): http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/868277-grand-theft-auto-san-andreas/70449592

counterUAVbaby 01 April, 2015 @ 15:13
9.2

@Lance_87, yeah, but this is the original.

9.3

They removed songs from Vice City PS2 Classic IIRC. That’s why i clearly wrote “from the PC version” for San Andreas. Maybe learn to read next time.

Dear SCEE, Woah Dave! is not a new release on Vita. It came out months ago. I know you’re really excited that it’s been ported to PS4 now because that’s the only thing you care about, but calm down okay.

10.1

I guess it’s either new to buy or because they’ve made the PS4|Vita bundle.

11

No PS+ discount for Axiom Verge? :(

11.1

Axiom Verge has a 10% plus discount, just have look in the store ;). Cool avatar btw. ;).

11.2

it does now, but at the time of writing there was no discount to be seen.

No Project Diva f 2nd DLC this week? I thought we got it fortnightly. Or has it all been released now?

12.1

We’ve still got this week’s batch and, I’m pretty sure, three more batches to go before the DLC for it is done.

It hasn’t all been released here yet. Japan got the final batch (I think) this week.

We should have had what America had yesterday:

Promise (Miku & Rin)
Rosary Pale (Kaito) – with associated modules.

Still to come :-

[My katakana/kanji isn’t good btw]

Majinaru (Marginal ?) (OSTER Project) – Miku
Something like First love (cant read the rest) – Ryo – Miku
Electric Angel (I think) – Yasuo – Miku
The song without form – Doriko – Miku

Along with the modules for them.

Yup, the other songs are –

Marginal
When the First Love Ends
Electric Angel
Though a Song has no Form(Or “Although Songs Have no Form”. There’s a few ways to translate it.)

And then LOADS of modules (Maybe not LOADS, but there’s still quite a few)

On the official English site, there’s enough space on the DLC page for three more Batch tabs, thus why I’m assuming there’s three more batches

Why are we being stiffed on the price of Axiom Verge here in the UK/EU?

On the US Store it costs $19.99 or $17.99 with a PS+ discount.

Here it costs £14.99 with no PS+ discount at all.

What gives???

13.1

Couldn’t agree more. Was really looking forward to playing it but now I think I’ll just wait for a sale or it to arrive on PS+. Save my money for Shovel Knight in a few weeks time.

^ We’ll probably get screwed on Shovel Knight as well. This is why I buy pretty much everything from PSN on sale

13.3

If you factor in exchange rate and VAT, the US are paying £1.87 MORE for Axiom Verge.

Syberia 2 came out of nowhere, just like the first. Fantastic! Can’t wait to dig into it. A classic game!

Also just wondering, how come no Run Sackboy, Run?

And nice deal on The Wolf Among Us on Vita!

madmanwithabox12 01 April, 2015 @ 15:09

Run Sackboy Run is out on the store. I dl’d it this morning. It’s alright, but the mandatory touch controls ruin the experience.

@Rawanz
It’s on the Store, just didn’t even list it down. Should I be in charge of this?

@madmanwithabox12
It’s a smartphone game.

Quite many new avatars as well, but we still didn’t get the US My Little Pony avatars, aww. *sobs*

16

I thought Axiom Verge was launching with a 10% discount? Was that just in the US?

I too would like confirmation of cross-buy before I spend any money. It might be a game that I prefer to play on Vita.

Jawad Ashraf 01 April, 2015 @ 15:45
16.1

It does indeed come with PS Plus discount (ends 8 April).

16.2

Cheers Jawad. The discount wasn’t showing up when I checked earlier. I’m not quite ready to tear myself away from Bloodborne yet but, when the time comes, I can’t wait to get stuck into AV. I have fond memories of Saturdays spent in front of my SNES, lost in Super Metroid.

According to @Dan_Adelman (Axiom Verge’s PR guy) there’s SUPPOSED to be a PS Plus discount for Europe, same as the US. Any word on when that will go live?

https://twitter.com/Dan_Adelman/status/583179499866439680

Well I can’t say I’m surprised the discount isn’t showing up on the EU store then. The EU store always messes something up. I’m amazed they’ve managed to get MLB 15 The Show up on time unlike last year.

18

Will there be new Vita deals on the 9th?

StevenJamesHyde 01 April, 2015 @ 14:21

Run Sackboy Run is on the store but not on this list. Good to see some progress on the Rocksmith issues, shame about the 80% next-gen premium of Dark Souls 2

When can I pre-order the following:

1) Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China
2) Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia
3) Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India

21

The price disparity of Dark Souls II between PS3 & PS4 is INSANE.

£20 extra… for what? Stuff that.

I believe they’re charging extra for the extra frames per second.

I want to know what the £13 difference between this and Amazon is? £13 of bandwidth costs?

21.3

Well, to be fair, the PS3 version doesn’t have the new enemy placement, the graphical and performance upgrade, or the Soul Level/multiplayer changes.

I don’t think these things are factored into the price, though.

22

Is this version of GTA: San Andreas the gimped one that had controls changed and many of the tracks removed?

counterUAVbaby 01 April, 2015 @ 15:14

@necrosmash The controls are normal on the xbox 360 remastered version. This should be the original version.

Rock Band 3 Content from January, February and March Jawad?

Arctic Monkeys – R U Mine?
Avenged Sevenfold – Shepherd Of Fire
Foo Fighters – Something From Nothing
Tenacious D – Rize Of The Fenix
Weezer – Back To The Shack
Frank Turner – I Still Believe (FREE)

We’ve asked nicely for the last 9-10 weeks. It’s not good enough. We demand action. If you won’t make the content available, I will be demanding your immediate firing and refund of all Rock Band content i’ve purchased from SCEE (which would be in the $1000s). I want all of my content available when Rock Band is released on the PS4. That clearly won’t happen with SCEE, so i’d like a full refund so I can purchase the game and content from the US PSN Store, where content appears without delays.

If you don’t have the power to fix the problem, i’m sure you have contacts that do.

The developer (Harmonix) is the only one keeping us informed. They have reached out to SCEE on numerous occasions, also having re-submitted the content, yet it’s still unavailable to PS3 users in SCEE regions (available everywhere else and available worldwide on the XBOX). They don’t have to beg for content to appear and neither should we.

24

PS4 infamous themes?

So how do i go about getting a refund on Dead or Alive 5 Last round for PS4?
Clearly europe is NOT going to get the dlc transfer from ps3 as promised numerous times and being stipulated on the back of my retail box.
It was the deciding factor in me purchasing the game yet again.
Not sure which i find more insulting to be honest. The fact that the rest of the world has had it for ages now,
Or SCEE’S utter refusal to answer any questions on the matter or even attempt to offer any kind of explanation as to why they cant do what all sony’s other regions have.

25.1

You can’t get refunds in Europe on PSN, lol.

25.2

Or what you paid for obviously

No Metal Slug 3 again :-( hoping this isn’t another Counter Strike:GO

Another awful week for Vita. Can’t we at least use these barren weeks for playing catch up on the gazillion games that should have been on it already? Metal Slug 3, Dragon Fantasy II, Mutant Mudds Deluxe, 1001 Spikes, Home… Come on SCEE, throw it a bone.

The 10% PS+ discount for Axiom Verge is now showing up.

Are there any issues with the store? I can’t log in, be it www or from console :/

madmanwithabox12 01 April, 2015 @ 15:08
29.1

There are always issues with the store. Connectivity, missing content, hidden content, it’s unorganised, multiple of the same thing, wrongly priced content, overpriced content… the fun never stops on PSN!

29.2

madman you win my friend xDD

30

Axiom Verge is tempting but £15 is a bit steep, probably just play GBA Meteoroid on my 3ds

31

Btw I’ve been meaning to complain about this for a while

Why is Hyperdimension Neptunia Producing perfection 39.99€ in EU? It’s a 29.99$ “budget”-ish game, sold at 29.99 on the US store, yet it’s sold at FULL price on the EU store. The current easter sale discount is 50% off and brings it down to 19.99€..which is basically what americans pay and honestly what the standard EU price should be.

Good to see a healthy batch of the Rocksmith content at last! My credit card is poised for action when I get home.

Now, what of the Rock Band 3 DLC? Please don’t ignore the question into a third month, guys.

32.1

The licences are screwed up, so those of us who purchased the legacy content on PS3 are being asked to pay again. Because this company is completely incapable of getting anything right.

Rocksmith 2014 –
You’re trolling us, right? 70 legacy songs added yet you want me to pay for content i’ve already purchased? HOW do you mess this up without fail each week? And why do we have to wait for Wednesdays before you’ll give us any of our missing-for-five-months legacy content?

Honestly, your treatment of Rocksmith (and Rock Band) customers has been disgraceful. Word to the wise Rock Band fans – this is what you have to look forward to later this year when RB4 launches and you expect to access your existing PS3 content.

33.1

Please, SCEE, fix these cross-buy issues as soon as you can! I personally am very happy to see that you managed to put up a big chunk of legacy DLC this week, but for the people that already own the PS3 versions, have therefore paid for them and spent noch over 5 months waiting for the chance to download them to the PS4, this is in fact a huge slap in the face. The same happened last week and you managed to fix it during that very day. please repeat that, and make sure it doesn’t happen again next time!

33.2

Everyone interested in information about the so-called #RSDLCScandal, visit http://rsdlcscandal.blogspot.com/ or check tweets with that hashtag.

33.3

The way in which SCEE has dealt with Rock Band 3 and Rocksmith 2014 content is deplorable.

How can the same content be released on other platforms without errors and delays?

Even PS3/PS4 players in non-SCEE regions (like the US and Canada) get their content ON TIME. Yet, we here in SCEE regions are being ignored and begging each week for the content to appear.

And yes, even though all PS3 content for Rock Band is promised to be available for use in the PS4 version (at no additional cost), i’m not holding my breath that SCEE is capable of doing that after witnessing what they’ve done with Rocksmith. We’ve asked week after week for answers. Harmonix has apparently contacted SCEE numerous times and re-submitted the content that was released this year, and it’s still not available.

I think we should all be demanding refunds from SCEE for all Rock Band Content we’ve purchased. We should also cease supporting SCEE and buy all future games and content from the US, where the games and conte...

No more excuses Jawad. I think you need to respond, as we’re only going to become more frustrated with you and SCEE.

Does anybody know if the Atelier Ayesha Plus with Bonus still comes with the bonus in this easter sale? Since it doesn’t state if it does or not.

34.1

It does. As long as you buy the package that’s on sale (the standard game without DLC is not discounted)

35

Sony this is beyond ridiculous now, there’s this thing called an exchange rate, were prices differ between each currency. Take battlefield hardline for instance What is $60 dollars in America isn’t £55 in the UK. It’s more like £45

Amazon, Argos,game,Tesco,asda and many more retailers that sell video games the price of battlefield hardline is £45 at its regular price, and that’s for the physical copy by the way which is more expensive to produce than a digital copy, as there’s the case, the disc and the artwork to add to it, not to mention production, transport and storage costs. So you selling it at £55 and then putting it at £45 and calling it a sale is ridiculous, it’s not a sale It’s just putting it at its retail price.

35.1

It doesn’t matter if its cheaper to produce. They can’t undercut their retailer partners because without them who would sell their hardware?

35.2

They don’t need to undercut them, at the very least it should be the same price, the US store charge the same for digital as the retail stores do for physical

35.3

Actually US PSN is cheaper than retail day one as the US PSN doesn’t charge tax whereas the retailers have to.

Here its a case of we have to pay the “next gen” increase for the whole world because SCEA committed to a price freeze and Japan.l followed while SCEE didn’t.

Hi Jawad will we also get infamous themes for PS4 in EU and some new themes for the PS Vita?

38

This must be an Aprils Fools joke that you actually released a lot of legacy Rocksmith 2014 PS4 Dlc but expect us to pay for it all again. The game was advertised as having the the DLC cross compatible between the PS3 and PS4 so as a paying customer I believe we should have access to the same level of service as those in America who have had their content for months. Thanks for basically crapping all over your customers Sony EU.

38.1

I noticed that too. I own many of those packs and songs on the PS3. I never bought the PS4 version as a result of all the delays. It looks like i’ll never buy the AU/EU release of Rock Band 4 on the PS4 either.

We need petitions on social media to make Jawad, Chris, Fred and others at SCEE more accountable.

They need to interact with the community and support us. They post on here, then cowardly ignore the most frequently asked questions. We’ve asked nicely, week after week for many months now. We’re beyond frustrated.

Jawad, we’re not asking you to reply to EACH and EVERY post, but for heaven’s sake, please reply to the most frequently asked questions. That’s the least you could do. Ignoring the issue won’t make it (or us) go away.

Interesting that Dark Souls II gets updated as a new release. If you already own a disc or download version of the game, do PS3 owners get a free update for the orginal game (like Heavy Rain did for the Move Edition)?

I wanna buy something but there aren’t much that interest me on Ps3. San andreas is quite pricey and it’s a shame there’s no trophy implementation..Only way I could get since at any time I could just turn on my 360 and play the digital version I bought several years ago at half price than that..Even better yet, I could check out if my original xbox still works for which I also have the disc version of the game.

BTW plus games didn’t go live, did they? Don’t care, and I know the reason, though that ain’t right. It’s the first Wednesday of the month..There are some rules/obligations you ought to uphold whether it suits you or not.

Won’t the Battlefield 4 Premium expansion get a discount as well? Considering it’s now more expensive than the base game and premium.

Hi Jawed,

Can you please look into the availability of Hotline Miami 2 for New Zealand?!?! This game was classified as R16 in NZ and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be available to us now. I’d really love to take the game on my Easter break and am not sure why it can be that hard to release the title to one countries storefront.
#fortheplayers

Thanks

48

The level of customer service you are showning is an utter disgrace SCEE! Rocksmith and Rock Band keeps getting overlooked and thrown aside, and no one at SCEE apperently seems to care! No responses. No official statements and no sign of the missing DLC!

I don’t know what good you think can come from handling a situation so poorly. But I can tell you this: I’m seriously considering getting an Xbox One instead of a PS4 at this point. Embarrassing!

noting special
dark souls 2 i own on ps3 so paying ful price on ps4= no go ( max 29.99-30€ )
bloodborne = great game ended 38 hr 10min no cheating ore using glitches .
waiting witcher 3- mmo the elderscrols

Theme’s check US then check EU ,for gods sake this EU is not as important as US in SONYS eyes,its getting out of hand.
