Furthermore, you’ll find Evolve, DmC: Definitive Edition, The Legend of Korra, Another World, Transistor and so much more on offer. It’s all happening on PlayStation Store.

Do you happen to have any information considering Class of Heroes 2? Gaijinworks has told that they’re aiming for that game to be released in EU again, so has there been any activity regarding the game on your side?

 
UniQ_Gamer_NL 13 May, 2015 @ 2:04 pm   2

Where is the Dark World DLC for TowerFall Ascension?

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 2:25 pm    

    The EU version is still in QA – look out for an update when a date is confirmed.

 

Anything to report on the missing harvest moon yet?

 
Lathiel- 13 May, 2015 @ 2:05 pm   4

Hey Jawad, could you please look into the previous DLC drop for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd (the one with the swimsuit modules)? They are only compatible with the PS Vita version of the game for some reason. I contacted support about it and was told this, and they submitted a refund request for me.

However, if the content for the PS3 version can be provided it would help out myself and a lot of other users.
Thanks in advance.

    CraigRJ 13 May, 2015 @ 3:05 pm    

    I second this, haven’t booted up the PS3 version recently, so hadn’t noticed anything was up with it, but yeah, I’ve only got the Vita versions of said DLC on my download list, and no option for the PS3 ones.

 
magmar126 13 May, 2015 @ 2:06 pm   5

Aarghh, been waiting eagerly for Color Guardians and now you’re telling me it’s not available over here.. Could you explain why?

I’d love to play the game, please tell me it’ll be available eventually!

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 2:24 pm    

    It’s a decision for the publisher unfortunately – we’ll update as and when there’s a wider release.

    More like how about you stop blocking games because they lack store translations, Fred. Stop ruining it for a lot of people.

eoinoreilly24 13 May, 2015 @ 2:14 pm   12

What happened to the Rocksmith Disc Upgrade Pack? It was included in the Store update on 29th April, which has since been taken down for some reason, but has not since been made available on the store.

     
    eoinoreilly24 13 May, 2015 @ 2:15 pm    

    I should say it’s the one for PS4. As far as I know it’s been available for PS3 for a long while.

     
    Graffin_G 13 May, 2015 @ 2:50 pm    

    It’s not on the PSN Store. Load up Rocksmith 2014 on the PS4, go to the shop within the game, and you should see the RS1 Disc Import under Packs. It was definitely there on May 1st.

     
    eoinoreilly24 13 May, 2015 @ 2:56 pm    

    Thanks Graffin_G. I’ll check it out later. I really wish publishers wouldn’t do that, or Playstation Europe, whoever are responsible. I should have guessed as much after the way the Jimmy Hendrix DLC offer was handled.

 
ReadyCheck 13 May, 2015 @ 2:14 pm   13

Harvest Moon:Back to Nature? Or are you pulling a Konami and pretending there is no problem?

    Fred Dutton 14 May, 2015 @ 10:02 am    

    The publisher, Natsume, hasn’t submitted the game to SCEE for a PAL release. As and when they do, we’ll get the word out.

     
    ReadyCheck 14 May, 2015 @ 6:20 pm    

    Thank you for the update, sorry about the sarcastic tone. So how come it showed up in the store update if they havent taken the necessary steps?

 
X_Blood_Curse_X 13 May, 2015 @ 2:14 pm   14

Yeah, were never getting Harvest Moon Back to nature are we?

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 2:26 pm    

    See above – I’m chasing an update for you on this.

     
    madmanwithabox12 13 May, 2015 @ 2:30 pm    

    Of course not, it’s a PS1 classic. The only current gen system that plays PS1 classics is Vita and we all know how Sony feels about Vita.

     
    X_Blood_Curse_X 13 May, 2015 @ 2:32 pm    

    Alright cool, thanks. None of the comments had loaded when I posted so I didn’t see

 
AussieOutsider 13 May, 2015 @ 2:20 pm   15

Again… Rock Band 3 DLC?

     
    Graffin_G 13 May, 2015 @ 2:53 pm    

    Yes, what about the Rock Band 3 DLC?

    “R U Mine?” – Arctic Monkeys
    “Shepherd of Fire” – Avenged Sevenfold
    “Something from Nothing” – Foo Fighters
    “Rize of the Fenix” – Tenacious D
    “Back to the Shack” – Weezer
    “I Still Believe” – Frank Turner (FREE)

    Available worldwide on the XBOX Marketplace and on the PS3 in non-SCEE regions. It’s not a regional/licensing issue as PlayStation Support believe it to be. Nor is it Harmonix’s fault, as they’ve reached out to SCEE and resubmitted the content only to be ignored like we have been each week by Jawad.

     
    ruinereraser 13 May, 2015 @ 6:21 pm    

    Fred, if we don’t get an answer to this, we’ll be reaching to public offices in the UK that are set to deal with you on such matters. One last chance to set this scandal right.

    Fred Dutton 14 May, 2015 @ 10:01 am    

    Okay, so there has been some technical issues holding back the RB3 DLC. However, I’m told it has just cleared QA this week so you should be seeing it on Store in the next week or two. Thanks for your patience.

     
    jakeellis02 14 May, 2015 @ 5:36 pm    

    Thanks for the update Fred,

    Eagerly awaiting next week, been waiting a long time for these tracks since they have been out over 4 months ago now.

    Meanwhile I have compiled a list of other RockBand tracks which I’ve been trying to purchase from the UK Store but the ‘buy’ button is unavailable:

    Weight Of The World – Evanescence
    Call Me When You’re Sober – Evanescence
    Bring Me To Life – Evanescence
    Image Of The Invisible – Thrice
    Piece Of My Heart – Janis Joplin
    Chest Fever (Live) – The Band

    Is there any reason why these are still showing in the store but are unavailable to purchase?

    Thank you again for your support!

 
Envirasu 13 May, 2015 @ 2:25 pm   16

I’ll just add another concerned post about Harvest Moon to the pile.

 
EternalChaos72 13 May, 2015 @ 2:25 pm   17

might pick up colour guardians.

 
RoaringMdog18 13 May, 2015 @ 2:26 pm   18

Any news on when we’ll get Breach and Clear for the vita?

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 2:36 pm    

    No, nothing to share I’m afraid. I don’t believe it’s been submitted to SCEE at this stage.

     
    Bovrillor 13 May, 2015 @ 4:23 pm    

    No huge loss there, it’s more like “Breach & Freeze” at the moment

 
madmanwithabox12 13 May, 2015 @ 2:29 pm   19

Only one Vita game this week? What about Colour Guardians? Or any of the games we’re still waiting on like 1001 Spikes, Dragon Fantasy II or Mutant Mudds Deluxe? 2013 Infected Wars? Deadman’s Cross? Come on, for a system with supposedly 100s of games in development, it’s been a VERY barren couple of weeks.

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 2:41 pm    

    Unfortunately we can’t control when developers finish/submit their games 😉 As soon as we have updates on those titles you’ve mentioned, we’ll be sure to pass them on.

     
    madmanwithabox12 13 May, 2015 @ 2:49 pm    

    Colour Guardians was supposed to be out today. It released on PS4 just fine, what went wrong for Vita? Some of those games I’ve mentioned have been out in North America for well over a year. Why is SCEE QA so much stricter than SCEA’s? These games clearly work fine, as evidenced by their NA releases. So why are we still waiting on some of these games, perhaps indefinitely, when they’re already readily available elsewhere?

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:07 pm    

    Color Guardians was announced for release this Friday earlier this week: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2015/05/12/test-your-reactions-in-color-guardians-out-this-week-on-ps4-and-ps-vita/

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:11 pm    

    There are a number of different reasons why games don’t always release globally at the same time. Most commonly with independent titles – small teams with limited resources choose to work on a single-language North American SKU first so they can launch and start seeing some return on their investment, before then turning their attention to a multi-language version for PAL territories. It’s obviously not ideal, but understandable. Global licensing issues can also hold up releases.

     
    madmanwithabox12 13 May, 2015 @ 3:14 pm    

    That’s fair enough. Thanks for the answers Fred.

     
    WizzNL 13 May, 2015 @ 3:50 pm    

    Games release globally on Steam and Xbox live though.

     
    supersmith2500 13 May, 2015 @ 4:38 pm    

    @WizzNL
    Except Nintendo. They also have separate branches just like Sony.

    @Fred Dutton
    Will the PSVita ever get more themes for Europe especially the Freedom Wars themes? It seems no theme creators including SCEE have any plans to bring them over to Europe.

 
maximalcheetor 13 May, 2015 @ 2:30 pm   20

No wanting to sound negative, but to echo the posts of others where is the promised Color Guardians for the PS Vita as the developers mentioned in their blog post (which is also supposed to be Cross Buy).

Also, even though the service is being pulled in the coming months, I’m somewhat disappointed that SCEE has now decided to stop making any reference to the PlayStation Mobile titles that are released each week here on the blog. Developers are still putting time and effort into working on and releasing games even though sales are now set to be limited so why are these efforts being undermined by giving them even less support and publicity than normal?

Even though their games won’t be on sale for more than a couple of months, anyone buying them will still be able to keep them after they are removed from sale so why deny them the extra marketing that they need? And while on the subject of PSM, why has it been left to PS Vita fan sites and the media generally to report on PlayStation Mobile’s demise? There’s been no official statement here on the blog about the service being removed.

Developers have been treated unfairly over this ever since PSM started – poor promotion, games hidden away on the store, no access through the PS3 or web-based store and now the complete removal of titles yet the Minis range are still on sale years after the release of the last game and were actively promoted and are available through every PlayStation medium. They are also searchable on the store which is more than I can say for PSM.

Granted some PSM titles aren’t particularly good, but there are some amazing games available that gamers have missed out on simply because they don’t know that they exist.

     
    Lance_87 13 May, 2015 @ 3:41 pm    

    I guess PSM games weren’t in the same Store as the other platforms. That’s why it’s shutting down. The Minis run on all PlayStation consoles except PS4.

 
buczanova 13 May, 2015 @ 2:32 pm   21

Is there any chance that Europe will get Witcher 3 theme that is available with pre order in US?

 
Unholy_Light 13 May, 2015 @ 2:33 pm   22

Hey,
Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief and Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 aren’t discounted on polish PSS, as they should be for about a week now… Could you check on that, please?

 
Achkas 13 May, 2015 @ 2:36 pm   23

Not exactly the right place to ask this but you might be able to point me in the direction of who to contact. I’ve been invited to the PSNow Beta in the UK but when I click on the email’s link to generate a code it comes up with an error page saying — An unexpected error has occurred! Error Message: Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint — and etc, even if I use different browsers. How can I get in contact with the PSN beta team in the UK or would you be able to pass on my username to them?

     
    Shaolin_Staff 13 May, 2015 @ 8:31 pm    

    Same problem,is sony trolling? Sort it out or you’ll definitely lose future subscribers

     
    R_Slickerz1087 14 May, 2015 @ 12:11 am    

    Am getting this too, have also tried on several browsers and even mobile but still get the same error.

 
SERGEANT-Q6R 13 May, 2015 @ 2:41 pm   24

Any news about pre-order in Qatari store

 
TrueMurton 13 May, 2015 @ 2:41 pm   25

Now I know he made the figure up, but Chris at pixelnauts agreed to be quoted on the price being “about £8.50” and here it is £9.99 as I told him it would be.

We were also told by the developer that Toren would be £6.99 matching the price on Steam, again it was doubted and here we are, £7.99

Do you have any comment to add Fred? It seems that the prices given on the blog simply cannot be trusted any more.

     
    Mulukh 13 May, 2015 @ 3:17 pm    

    Wasn’t there also meant to be a plus discount on Nom Nom Galaxy?

     
    WizzNL 13 May, 2015 @ 3:52 pm    

    I would also like to know why Toren is released with a different price as the developer mentioned a couple of days ago. And numerous other games lately.

     
    WizzNL 13 May, 2015 @ 5:53 pm    

    Im also curious why so many games are stuck in QA, while games like AC Unity, Driveclub or Ether One are getting released full of bugs or arent working at all. Seems like the IGC went from triple-A titles to Indies to broken Indies ( Ether One ) and a ( already 8 months late ) demo called Driveclub Plus Edition.

     
    totaldirkness 13 May, 2015 @ 7:14 pm    

    TrueMurton, every day you’re on this blog posting about the EU prices, and you have a point. But I’m affraid you’re wasting your time. SCEE clearly don’t give a single F… about your posts, the pricing and the European (and Australian etc) gamers. You’ll never get an awnser.

     
    TrueMurton 13 May, 2015 @ 8:01 pm    

    @dirkness

    That’s blatantly apparent. SCEE will continue to push up prices claiming that publishers are responsible while the self publishing indie devs continue to say otherwise.

    I’m just gonna hand all my data over to Eurogamer for their piece on SCEEs twisted policies, see if they can get any sense of them.

     
    TrueMurton 14 May, 2015 @ 4:49 pm    

    I passed my data on to Eurogamer this morning, its there’s to do with as they will but the developer of Badlands just made an interesting post explaining that they have zero input on the UK price. They choose their price in Euros from a list then SCEE converts to stirling.

    So all those years of various different blog team members saying “publishers set prices” utter bull here in the UK.

    So that’s the pricing question finally put to rest and also another important question of whether or not the EU blog can be trusted, also answered with an emphatic, no, they can not.

 
nvrhere 13 May, 2015 @ 2:43 pm   26

Why has Toren had a £1 price hike for PS4? The publisher stated it would be matching the Steam price of £6.99 with a 10% discountfor Plus members. See here: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2015/05/07/haunting-ps4-adventure-toren-arrives-ps4-next-week/

 
tired-hippo 13 May, 2015 @ 2:46 pm   27

Do you know when we’ll be getting another ether one patch? I love the game but can’t progress due to a bug.

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:48 pm    

    Sorry to hear you’re having problems – sounds like the developer is on top of it: https://twitter.com/WhitePaperGames/status/597643392181501952

     
    tired-hippo 13 May, 2015 @ 7:18 pm    

    Hopefully tomorrow…I want that plat.

     
    Witcher70 13 May, 2015 @ 10:49 pm    

    It is plattable with with the bugs as it is just a matter of saving at the right time and restarting, you will need to do this every time a crash happens. it has worked for me, i have completed Pinwheel Harbour, Pinwheel Industries i am now in pinwheel village collecting ribbons, so just keep trying.

Graffin_G 13 May, 2015 @ 2:48 pm   29

Fred, could you please find out what’s happening with this year’s Rock Band 3 DLC?

Harmonix has been in constant contact with SCEE regarding these songs and re-submitted the content, yet there’s still no sign of them. 3 were released in January. 2 in February and the final one in March (“I Still Believe” which should be FREE). They were released on time on the PS3 in all other non-SCEE regions, and worldwide on the XBOX Marketplace (yes, even here in Australia, so it’s NOT a regional/licensing issue).

I’ve asked Jawad every week. I’ve also contacted PlayStation Support, but here’s their rather unhelpful reply…

Thank you for your recent contact with PlayStation Support.

Regarding your query on RockBand 3 content released earlier this year and its availability on the PlayStation Store for Australia.

Release information we have for this content confirms that the songs that were included in this release are not available on the European or Australian Stores.
We do not have information as to why this decision was made and this would be something to query with the developers directly should you wish to know more information.

The songs released for your information are:

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:01 pm    

    I’ve asked the question. I’ll update asap.

     
    Graffin_G 13 May, 2015 @ 3:40 pm    

    Thank you for replying to this and other posts on here Fred. It goes a long way to show that SCEE cares.

    Please get in touch with Harmonix if there’s an issue with the content. I’m sure they’ll be fine with submitting it a 3rd time if you tell them what the problem is LOL.

     
    Fuzzbap 13 May, 2015 @ 3:40 pm    

    Thanks, Fred. It may have taken four months, but it’s honestly great just to get a response from someone on the team. Hope the update is positive news too!

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:46 pm    

    It’s absolutely not something we’ve been ignoring. Clearly, there have been a number of ongoing complications around RB DLC, and believe me, it’s brought up very frequently here. Like I say, I’ve asked again what the current situation is – I can’t promise I’ll have new news for you, but I’ll pass on what I find out.

    WonderWaage 13 May, 2015 @ 3:52 pm    

    It’s not up for debate whether or not you’ve been ignoring us, you have, this is the very first peep that we have gotten out of you guys, and the DLC has been MIA for 5 months.

     
    WizzNL 13 May, 2015 @ 3:54 pm    

    Those complications are nowhere to be found on other platforms. Like always.

     
    TrueMurton 13 May, 2015 @ 4:53 pm    

    The RB DLC doesn’t affect me. But that “we haven’t been ignoring it” is difficult to believe, if you’ve been aware of it all this time, and it is “discussed regularly” why did it take four full months for a public acknowledgement that an issue exists?

     
    Fuzzbap 13 May, 2015 @ 5:15 pm    

    You may well not have been ignoring the issue behind-the-scenes, but you certainly can’t deny that you’ve been ignoring queries it. And when I say “you”, I mean “SCEE” – this isn’t anything personal against Jawad and Fred.

    As others have said, I can’t understand how the “ongoing complications” apply only to SCEE and not SCEA, or Microsoft’s Xbox division worldwide. I’m sure those of with an interest in purchasing RB3 – and of course RB4 – DLC would also be interested in understanding the nature of those complications.

     
    ruinereraser 13 May, 2015 @ 6:29 pm    

    … and of course, no news for us.

    You’re losing a client here (and from the comments of others I guess I’m not the only one), I’ve been waiting patiently for RB4 to be realeased so I can sell my PS3 and move on fully to the next generation, but seeing the fiasco with PS3 to PS4 upgrade of Rocksmith DLCs, I’m seriously considering getting a XBONE for Rock Band 4. I’m only awaiting Harmonix response on the matter of cross platform upgrade of the songs, as I’m stuck with few hundred songs on PS3 at the moment.

    lco1138 13 May, 2015 @ 6:38 pm    

    I think I’ve seen more SCEE replies this week than I have seen in all recent weeks. See? You can do it when you try, SCEE.

    Thanks Fred for coming here to at least acknowledge something’s gone awry with the Rock Band DLC so far in 2015. But to echo the sentiments of others here, why only acknowledge the problem now, what’s being done to put it right, and what steps are SCEE taking to ensure this won’t happen again? Other platforms and terroritories get the content out on time, so why does SCEE constantly fail at it?

     
    halfaworldaway 17 May, 2015 @ 4:15 pm    

    I have given up on this, only commenting now after four months is not good enough Fred, you guys should hang your head in shame at the poor customer service, you could have said all along that there was a problem then would would have accepted that, but you guys kept silent.

    The people on here asking about Rock Band, are the core people who will support the game long after its come out with purchasing DLC.

Rocket league doesnt appears in the portugueses store

NSR_Apathy 13 May, 2015 @ 2:49 pm   31

Why hasn’t the Left Behind add-on for Last of Us gone down to 7.99, as previously stated?

 
Smash_41 13 May, 2015 @ 2:49 pm   32

More importantly has anyone asked about cross-region gifting recently?

 
StuDevo 13 May, 2015 @ 2:54 pm   33

Any idea when Yakuza 5 will get released?

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:11 pm    

    That’s a question for our friends at Sega.

     
    madmanwithabox12 13 May, 2015 @ 3:15 pm    

    Gio Corsi went to Japan to interview the folks at SEGA. Apparently the video is in SEGA’s hands for translation and editing, should expect to see more on Yakuza soon.

 
elwasho 13 May, 2015 @ 3:09 pm   34

Hey Fred,

Just wondering if we will ever get the Arcade Archives on our shores in the near future?

 
homerjnick 13 May, 2015 @ 3:14 pm   35

Any news on the remake Free-To-Play title PAIN that is being developed by QB9? There was a blog post about all these remakes FTP and Fat Princess & Hustle Kings have been done but no PAIN????

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:30 pm    

    Yes, you’re right, it has gone a bit quiet since announcement. I’ve not got an update for you today, but as and when there is news you’ll hear it here first.

 
Mulukh 13 May, 2015 @ 3:15 pm   36

I thought the dev post said there would be a Plus discount for nom nom galaxy?

 
Witcher70 13 May, 2015 @ 3:16 pm   37

Fantastic update bought Toren and Ultratron yesterday and Schrodinger’s cat and Nom Nom Galaxy today. Can i ask why Colour Guardian’s for PS4 is coming out friday instead of today?

 
ccfliege 13 May, 2015 @ 3:19 pm   38

Hello PlayStation Blog Team,

Pre-order Payday 2: Crimewave today and receive 25% off until launch in US.
Why this is not so in the EU Store. As 505 Games and developer Overkill informed rushed, this applies to all pre-orders for download.

 
Witcher70 13 May, 2015 @ 3:25 pm   39

Kudos Fred for replying to posts 🙂

 
jeebz86 13 May, 2015 @ 3:28 pm   40

So are we not getting the final fantasy x – to Samarkand theme like US n Japan?

    Fred Dutton 13 May, 2015 @ 3:43 pm    

    As perhaps you can tell, Jawad is out today hence why I’m replying. He may well know more about this – I’ll ask him to jump in and reply when he’s back.

     
    jeebz86 13 May, 2015 @ 3:53 pm    

    OK awesome thankyou 🙂 hope we do, best theme on ps4 yet 🙂

 
Shadowdragoon 13 May, 2015 @ 3:53 pm   41

Please be polite and keep trolling out of the thread to avoid the whole tread getting deleted because of 1 or two trolls again.
Late post today as I do have more to do than make sure I get first post, unlike what someone here thinks.

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
Metal Gear Acid
Metal Gear Acid 2

PS1:
Xenogears
Digimon World
Digimon World 2003
ChronoTrigger/Cross
Dino Crisis 1
Dino Crisis 2
Legend of Dragoon
Secret Agent Clank

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.

Complete and utter garbage for PS3, week after week. Even in best days of PS3, we never got more then 5 games at once, while PS4 is getting 13 games today, and minimum 5 games per week.
I never thought Sony would treat its own products like crap.
And soon enough PS4 will suffer same faith, like Vita and PS3 are getting now.
We pumped billions into PS3 yet Sony cant find few minor games to support for PS3.

If PS4 devkits are free from day one, if Vita kits are free too, and PS3 devkits until recently were charged full price, does it come as a surprise noone is willing to develope any games for it?

Even old projects from 2011-12 never made it to PS3, due to Sony indifference for this console.
Capsized game, Bandai Namco is publisher for PS3 for this game, scheduled for December 27th 2013, game never got to PS3 and noone bothers to give any reasonable explanation. But hey, game release on XBOX360 as planned back in 2013, two years ago.

Mark of the Ninja, one of best indie games last decade, Sony blew off developer to partner up, while MS jumped on it and today this game is XBOX exclusive and one of best stealth indie games.
Trials Fusion, on every platform, but NOT on PS3, thanks to Sony.
Dust – An Elysian Tales, another old XBOX360 game, never got to PS3 then, but miraculously makes it to PS4.
AC Chronicles China announced by Sony to come on PS3 aswell, but UBISOFT clearly said two weeks ago, exclusively for PS4, XBOX1 and PC.
I guess Greatness Awaits Players exclusively on PS4. No, thanks.

     
    Lance_87 13 May, 2015 @ 4:07 pm    

    In my country we call this “rosik”.

     
    StevenJamesHyde 13 May, 2015 @ 4:11 pm    

    Trials Fusion requires incredibly precise trigger button controls which the Dualshock 3 is simply not capable of providing. If it had released on PS3 the harder tracks would have been literally unplayable

     
    totaldirkness 13 May, 2015 @ 7:29 pm    

    PS3 is last gen and seriously outdated. The introdution was 9 years ago, time to move on to current gen.

     
    DieFliedermouse 14 May, 2015 @ 10:08 am    

    Time to upgrade sonny jim.

I can’t find Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD on my PS Store. Is it because they haven’t published it for the Norwegian PS Store yet?

 
Witcher70 13 May, 2015 @ 3:55 pm   44

Anybody know what kind of game Toro is? google search comes up with Guilliermo del toro and PT!!

 
WigglyScorpion 13 May, 2015 @ 4:07 pm   45

is Final Fantasy X/X2 not able to preorder and pre load in UK ps store? I dont see it in the store.

 
crimsonidol-de 13 May, 2015 @ 4:16 pm   46

I know the problems with the Project Diva F 2nd swimsuit DLCs for the PS3 aren’t fixed yet, but still thank you for getting the DLC right this time. I was able to grab all costumes and songs for free.

And like Witcher70 said:
Kudos to you Fred for replying to posts! 🙂

 
iamlerem 13 May, 2015 @ 4:16 pm   47

    Scubafinch 13 May, 2015 @ 11:05 pm    

    I feel your pain.

    All the press states a 12th May release date and the first EU folks hear that it’s not going to be released is on store update day, via a comment. Not good, again.

 
MoFoMedia 13 May, 2015 @ 4:18 pm   48

What happened to CS:GO? I suddenly remember that game…

     
    TrueMurton 14 May, 2015 @ 12:25 am    

    It failed QA and Valve never resubmitted it. I guess they felt they should have been given a free pass, which of course isn’t the case but when you allow so many objectively broken games appear on the store you have to wonder if they might have had a point

 
RodrigoSharingan 13 May, 2015 @ 4:35 pm   49

Fred is without a doubt the best person in this team. I love that he is replying to almost everyone in the post instead of ignoring everyone like 90% of the other staff members do. Keep it up Fred you’re the best!

 
A2GMAN 13 May, 2015 @ 4:37 pm   50

AirMech Arena – this was out last wk as a PS+ Exclusive with all dlc the same for a wk and now its for everyone. How does that make sence?
Not the best way of doing this. Should of bean left free….!

     
    Lance_87 13 May, 2015 @ 4:41 pm    

    Huh, what? The game was meant to be released 1 week earlier for PS+ members. What’s your point? It’s still free.

     
    A2GMAN 13 May, 2015 @ 4:56 pm    

    What i mean even tho its free its still a rental so we have to rebuy it when our plus finishes.
    Should of made it so that u can keep it forever insted of saying it was when ure subscripion ends.
    That is what annoying me.

     
    Lance_87 13 May, 2015 @ 5:22 pm    

    And what’s the problem? When the subscription ends, you “re-purchase” AirMech Arena (it’s FREE for God’s sake) and THEN you re-subscribe to Plus. Problem solved?

     

    He won’t even need to repurchase – it’s not an IGC game so he doesn’t lose access

     
    DieFliedermouse 14 May, 2015 @ 3:52 pm    

    The guy is barely literate. I think it might be a stretch to expect him to grasp the concepts at hand here.
