Any new information on Cross Region Gifting. Now, EU might be helping in a way whit some part of the legal issues preventing gifting of region locked 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
ChronoTrigg...

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.

Second, For those recommending creating accounts in other territory’s, that is against TOS, and can result in account ban. (And it do not work on the Vita as its single account)..

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

Get a life, you fool.

1.2

“Oh, and to anyone complaining about me reposting, if they (SCEE, Not other people) would just take time to reply” Maybe if you contacted SCEE and not posted on the store update blog, you’d get answers. Can we step aside from this for a second: are you ok? Genuinely, this seems to be all you have to your life and to an outsider it’s a bit worrying. Maybe stop, or get some help, or find some new hobbies. Go out and take some photos, make new friends? This is so very tedious for all of us who read the blog because we ENJOY PLAYING GAMES and not whining like we’re entitled to something like a 2 year old child. You are being so cringing, so sad it’s really embarrassing for you. You’ll look back on this and be mortified.

I thought Shovel Knight was delayed til tomorrow?

StevenJamesHyde 22 April, 2015 @ 14:37
2.1

That was yesterday, when people who don’t know how store updates work complained we weren’t getting it at the same time as America

2.2

Their twitter (Yacht Club Games) says delayed in the EU until the 23rd (Thursday). The link above is dead, and searching for the game hasn’t shown it being available for me.

2.3

Hi Jawad, the link for Shovel Knight does not work. I have searched the store, but it is not showing. Yacht Club Games on Twitter said it would be tomorrow (Thursday the 23rd).

SONY,

1001

IT

IT

5.2

Doesn’t people follow the publisher’s Facebook or Twitter… Nicallis have already said 1001 Spikes + other games i can’t remember & may just be Nintendo only (pretty sure 1 of them is the X1/3DS/Wii U Binding of Isaac port) will be coming later this year to EU. IIRC they said Summer. It’s currently Spring so don’t expect any time soon (except BoI Rebirth other platforms, that’s suppose to be May)

Why don’t the developers re submit it??
They have since released other games in the EU.
You would think it would be worth the effort as its a decent game worthy of release and surely there would be profit in it??
Such a shame really.

Hey! When do us Skullgirls players get Beowulf? It was meant to be out last Friday!

Delayed again. That’s all the info I obtained.

6.2

This. Lab Zero said today & weren’t happy with the last minuite delay due to the lack of communication & it’s not even listed. Come on Sony EU, not responding to us is one thing but not doing it for the publishers/developer is something else..

I thought Oddworld for PS3 was going to be released today. Oh well, it’s just an extra day. Also will it get the DLC like the PS4 version?

ziggurat 18€ vs 15$ en usa store… good conversion
damm only LACOPS 14€ vs 15$ pickup in european store, the rest US

hmmm, normally I wouldn’t refute this but ummm could you explain to me how someone who lives in Russia would give SCEA money when its come out at Wikileaks that they are in collusion with the US government to counter PR from both those people who like to cut off heads and dip them in Nutella (a brutal terrorist group) and RT (Russia Today news channel) for providing a different scenario of what is happening in eastern Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Yemen etc are somehow similar and both are construed as a threat to the US.

Personally I have a problem with equating a shirtless Putin bear wrangling to a group that thinks they need an encore to the Inquisition (What a show).

This isn’t a criticism, just curious

It’s supposed to be €15 but SCEE screwed up the price.

When Gradius V (PS2 Classic) will be released?

Jawad Ashraf 22 April, 2015 @ 15:13
9.1

Now, actually :)

Boneymajoney 22 April, 2015 @ 15:14
9.2

It’s on the web store now, just search for Gradius. No idea why it’s not included in the blog, they probably forgot.

9.3

It’s included now! Just checked, they moved Oddworld down and Gradius is the first game now.

Still no Goro DLC for Mortal Kombat X? Come on…
But hey, US Store has it. Who cares about EU?

Yes it’s very disappointing, particularly when other regions and platforms have it available for purchase. I can’t say that I am surprised though – poor form.

10.2

Even the EU XBL marketplace has it for £3.99 , but as usual no word from SCEE.

Glad to see you’ve been working hard to get the Rocksmith DLC up to date, however we’re not through the woods yet as we still have a few issues, missing tracks and packs and we’re still waiting for the Rocksmith 1 import tool. Hopefully we’ll be able to put the various issues we’ve had behind us after the next week or so – please don’t give up when we’re so close!

11.1

To whoever on the PS Store team thats responsible, BIG Thank You for the long overdue progress you have made over the past few weeks! You have made the EU/PS4 Rocksmith community a lot happier.

11.2

Great to finally see progress with Rocksmith content on the PS4 after what…. 6 months?

How about showing some love for the Rock Band 3 content we should have had in Jan/Feb/Mar this year?

Jawad, it would nice if you would actually respond to this issue!

11.3

Sorry, I’m later than usual. My big thanks as well, for the progress made in the past weeks. Rooting for you to keep that solution oriented mindset, keep posting the missing content and fix cross buy issues as you have been doing in the past days! :)

Guys, as excited as we all clearly are. Shovel Knight is released tomorrow. Im usualy a huge fan of the work you guys do on the blog but please get this sorted so people dont take a fit in the comment section.

12.1

According to the PlayStation Access video above, it won’t be available until Friday…

UNIFY THE STORES

STOP STAGGERED RELEASES

if microsoft can do it you can too

I know right!!!
it’s such BS we have to wait for no reason to wait other than “we do store updates on wednesdays”
and now, not only shovel knight would be 1 day late, it’s not even on the store!! so we wait 2 more days!

Well Tropico 5 should be in the post and of course there are more monsters to bully in Toukiden Kiwami…not to mention Ukiyo no Shishi to fill the hours until store update next week

but…

any news on when both Onigiri and Hatoful Boyfriend will be released on the store? My Singing Monsters…will we ever get it?

What about Borderland collection for Qatar and pre-order

@Fred
@Jawad
@anyone on PS Blog
(copied from previous thread, maybe this time someone will notice)

would it be possible to add to PSN shop page (PC) option to change language of description? Right now whenever I visit PSN it automatically display polish language. That would be fine and dandy… if only polish translation didn’t have so many mistakes included (and I’m quite sure other translations are the same)

Look… in original description of The Teltale Games Collection it is says:
– Tales from the Borderlands (Episodes 1-2 available now, Episodes 3-5 to be released periodically)
– Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series (Episodes 1-3 available now, Episodes 4-6 to be released periodically)

In polish translation there is:
– Tales from the Borderlands (Episody 1-2 już dostępny, Epizody 3-5 być okresowo zwolniony)
– Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series (Epizody 1-3 już dostępne, Epizody 4-6 być okresowo zwolniony)

It’s google translation -.- “okresowo zwolniony” means sometthing...

It’s google translation -.- “okresowo zwolniony” means sometthing entirely different than “to be released periodically”. It means that those will be “excluded for time period”

It’s confusing… and it’s not the first time there are mistakes. Last time during sale Tales of Hearts R description said that there are included only DLCs in package.

Right now to check the true (english) meaning I need to open a private session so that page won’t redirect me to polish site. Please try to do something about it, mkay?

Oh btw. one more thing.
Maybe it would be also good idea, to create some sort of official platform for translation? I mean place where publisher would be able to ask gamers for translating description page? I can do stuff like this for free in my free time. That way publisher wouldn’t have to use google translate nor pay for something which can be acquired for free? And I know that it is massive pain to translate description to every EU language… plus… nobody even reads those descriptions…

Actually to get around that (I’ve had it load GB store page when looking at an item on US blog) is to go to google search for the US or GB or JP store and load it that way. I’m guessing its based on whatever cookies are stored from your region store.

I wouldn’t offer to do it for free…translations that is, especially to a corporation. Being multi-lingual is a skill and one should be compensated for even if the only pay you make is a free copy of the game

16.2

Delete PS Store cookies in your browser and use another store domain (store.playstation.com/#!/en-pl/home). If you using this address you have access to our polish shop with original english translation.

What about the Rock Band 3 DLC released months ago on the US PSN Store and WORLDWIDE on the XBOX 360 Marketplace?

Well Jawad? Could you at least please acknowledge the issue and look into it?

Are we ever going to get the missing Rock Band 3 content? Or even a statement about what the problem is?

Glad to see in the meantime the Rocksmith catch up is continuing. Any update on the Import tool?

AussieOutsider 22 April, 2015 @ 15:03

Hmm, if we ain’t getting the recent Rock Band 3 DLC, I’m already getting skeptical about how well supported Rock Band 4 will be in the Euro/Aus zone when it’s released…

20.1

It’s a real worry.

We’re getting ignored by Jawad, Fred and Chris whose idea of customer service is to ignore the most frequently asked questions/reported problems and respond to them… At least acknowledge the issue and inform the PSN Store team that content that should be available, isn’t.

Harmonix have contacted SCEE on a weekly basis since the January content was released and they too are being ignored. C’mon Jawad. Out of all of the posts each week regarding the Rock Band 3 content, you’ve responded 0 times.

crimsonidol-de 22 April, 2015 @ 15:03
21

Is all of the content that’s supposed to be released today already visible in the store? Cause I’m not able to see the Ha2une-module. Or was this also delayed until tomorrow (US got it last week) for no real reason?

21.1

So even when they have an extra week to put it up on the store, they still bugger it up? The number of times content is missing or incorrectly priced for Project Diva F 2nd is stupefying. There is someone seriously incompetent on the case here Jawad!

21.2

Looks like they botched the DLC again. Sigh.

Also, Gradius V is out as a PS2 Classic, playable on PS3. If these jokers aren’t going to tell you, I will, because it’s brilliant. £7.99 UK, whatever it is elsewhere. https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-gb/games/gradius-v/cid=EP0101-NPED00295_00-GGRADIUSVX000001

Rocksmith 2014 dlc System of A Down song pack is still asking for me to pay for it even though I have it on PS3. still at least most of my songs have crossed over but seriously its been 7 months and you are still having issues and still no sign of the import tool.

27

Shovel Knight & hopefully Beowulf for me. Still would like MK Deception: Unchained bringing over but that’s Warner & they don’t seem to give a crap despite them already releasing it in America.

28

shouldent there be some drive club dlc today ?

Why in the hell is Dead or Alive Last Round, Ninja 2015 DLC free in the Asia territories but here in Europe or America?! Are team ninja and SC just so greedy of money? this is not fair to the players in this side or in the US. Im sick of this game trying to make me pay for everything in its 4º release. So sick of it.

Hey guys, just to mention you left out metal slug 3! From your list!

31

hi there, sorry to insist, I have 7.4e on my account, when I try to purchase doa5 for vita it seems the price is 4e, until I go to checkout, sadly the price moves to 8 but, most strange, even when it’s requesting to refill my wallet, the program shows 3.40 after a 8e purchase.
It seems it’s some kind of problem, not a delayed refresh. Please be so kind to check.

Nice discounts by the way, if doa5 it’s really on 4e, I will gladly spend the rest on capcom classics or power stone collection.
More psp discounts will be welcome by vita owners, since there are no new AAA games coming, we will stick to psp AAA by the way….

Oh come on, STILL no word nor acknowledge concerning Rock Band 3’s missing DLC?

Look, you guys finally pulled out the stops to get the Rocksmith situation sorted (largely anyway), but I can’t help but wonder if it was only because people had to resorted to reporting the situation to various Trading Standards authorities (and with damned good reason, too).

Is it going to require further outside action on our part just so you guys get your butts in gear and give us what other terroritories and systems have had back in JANUARY?! Sadly, I somehow suspect so…

I fear Rock Band 4’s release here in Europe. I really do. smh.

32.1

Yeah, we as individuals need to take action and bring this to the attention of our country’s authorities.

Jawad certainly isn’t helping the situation by conveniently avoiding to respond to the most asked question each week.

Perhaps we can gather enough momentum for a class action suit against SCEE for its conduct?

Not only do we have to wait in silence, plead and beg for content to appear, but when it finally does, it’s far more expensive than it is in the US for that exact same content (even factoring in currency exchange rates, fees and whatnot).

If Jawad, Fred and Chris operated a bricks and mortar store and offered the same level of customer service, their collective behinds would be fired and/or the business would go bust.

Microsoft and Steam can deliver content WORLDWIDE on the same day, yet Sony can’t (or won’t). Not good enough. We as customers have had enough of your disrespect and disregard.

A delay of a week or two is unfortunate yet understandable, but to not have this...

Metal Slug 3 for psvita/ps3 when?

34

There’s a couple of games here that are priced above when their developers quoted in their promo posts earlier in the month. Looks like a perfect opportunity to drop this:

The price of games in the EU region compared to the US has been a hot topic for years and you have always said that publishers set their prices on the PSN. Well several games in recent weeks have come in at new even higher conversion rates, approaching 1:1 in the UK even. This has lead to the the price question being asked in almost every game announcement post made by the many indie devs who have been allowed to promote their game here. Well, the few that have answered have been quite enlightening, it seems that many indie developers simply don’t know the price of their own games in the EU region. His can that be if they are self published? Surely as the publisher they told you (SCEE) the price the game is to be sold at?

Care to offer your thoughts on the matter?

Heck, I’m more worried that games like Infinity Runner are more expensive on the PS4 over the XB1. The XB1 version released at the same time is only £5.XX something. That’s another worry.

34.2

The developer of infinity runner promised in his blog post here a month ago that it would be “a fiver or less”yet here it is, costing a lot more.

LA Cops was announced like three days ago with a price of £10.99.

I can list a good half a dozen other indie games on just the PS4 that have launched at prices higher than their own developers, who are also the publishers, have told us they would cost.

So, where does that leave the whole ” publishers set prices “claim that the SCEE blog team keeps repeating? While I’m perfectly able to believe that this was once the case it seems pretty clear to me that right now SCEE are in direct control of the prices we pay and are pushing them upwards.

For example , Brawl is made in poland and is a remaster of the terrible basement crawl. Brewl is $15.99 with the original game free in American store , while its €19.99 here
Greed much anybody.

Can’t wait for Shovel Knight! I was hoping to buy it this instant but I can wait a day… btw what happened to Plants vs Zombies Vita? why it has been removed from the store??? :/

supersmith2500 22 April, 2015 @ 16:34

I need to tell you something, Why the day delay for New & Tasty PS3 and Shovel Knight?

37

Can anyone shed some light on us still being unable to buy Terraria at the moment? It’s been a week and we still can’t purchase it, it still comes up with the “We’re sorry, this product cannot be purchased at this time” excuse.

Jawad Ashraf 23 April, 2015 @ 09:26
37.1

I’ll have it looked in to.

37.2

Any chance you can also look into the incorrect pricing on Infinity Runner and LA Cops. And if you’re going to claim that “publishers set prices” or that they made some sort of mistake then I refer you to my post just a couple of inches up from this one.

It’s pretty clear that something is going on with pricing and that SCEE are part of it.

Rock Band 3 DLC?

It’s like the store team wants to prevent any purchases of RB4 for the PS4 in Europe.
I am coming from the 360 – is it normal that the dlc always is delayed that much? On the 360 all DLC tracks for RB1/2/3 was downloadable on Tuesday, worldwide, never with any problem in supplying.

38.1

I’ve been downloading RB content since the launch of the first game. Granted, I bought the first on in the US and used a US account and the SCEA store for a while, but switched to the EU version and store after a bit. To my recollection, there may have been a few tracks/packs delayed by a week or so over the years, but this is pretty much unprecedented.

39

Finished work and rushed home excited to spend an evening on shovel knight and delayed till tomorrow :-(

Yet zero mention of that here on the blog post. Weird how that happens. I feel like Sony should employ someone to communicate with its customers. What’s the harm? Is anyone going to run and jump off a cliff if it’s written in the post that it won’t be available till tomorrow? Why is it preferable to make people search on the store themselves to no avail? The operations of the European Playstation Blog are an absolute mystery.

Any reason why Crash Bandicoot and all three Spyro games have been completely delisted from the Australian PSN? Also Vib Ribbon still cannot be found months after launch. Thanks.

Not the only one, I’m still wondering why Crash 1 and the Spyro titles separately still not fixed despite the PSVita’s is still broken to use. And oh, gotta love those constant connection timeouts. It’s not just AUS, the UK has that problem too.
