Is Steins Gate Cross Buy?

Seriously doubt that as physical versions for both PS3 and vita are being released in UK…both priced around £20.76 each at Shopto

So for the price of the vita one on PSN you could spend a few quid more at Shopto and get both

It’s not. Just like the PS3 Disc and Vita version are seperate.

No Towerfall: Dark World :-(

It gets really frustrating. The patch never arrived and now this DLC delay week after week.. It is the same game in Europe as in the US, so what is the problem in just uploading it? :(

supersmith2500 03 June, 2015 @ 14:52

I think it’s still in QA. I’ll see Matt Makes Games later.

2.3

yes, welcome to psn europe, where the biggest of sony always has been , but now is less important because they need to conquer america ; here it’s a normal sight to see games or dlc come months or weeks after release in america :)

The Dead Or Alive 5 season pass still hasn’t been fixed. I still don’t have access to the Fighter Force costumes – they are showing as “unavailable”.

You’re not giving me what I paid for, so this better be fixed soon.

Can you please give us a response regarding this issue? When we pay for a season pass we expect to get the content. The silence makes us think you don’t care and won’t bother to fix it – which does not reflect well on you at all.

3.2

Unfortunately, I doubt they will respond. I’ve been on to them about it over the past 2 weeks, and they have ignored both mine and other peoples messages about it.

Its no wonder that so many people regard the European branch a complete joke. Not only Dead or Alive, but DLC issues with Rockband, Telltale games always showing up late.
And all we ever get it ‘we are looking into it’.

Even better is when they try to lay the blame on the games publisher, despite the fact people are reporting the content working without an issue on the American store, and the Xbox versions having no issues either.

Certainly makes me want to avoid buying another season pass when SCEE are going to ignore any and all problems than come up when the content doesn’t work/disappears.

Loving the new format. What’s up with the Steins;Gate prices, though? £5 more on Vita? With Harvest Moon: Back to Nature still a no-show, there’s nothing for me in this week’s additions (though I will be getting GoT from the sale).

Hi. I have some questions.

1. Any chance of getting the Mega Man PS1 classics over here? Recently, Mega Man 8 was released in the US PS Store as a PS1 Classic and about half a year ago, Mega Man X4 & X5 was released over in the US PS Store as a PS Classic as well, so any chance we can get those classics over here?

2. Is there any chance that the Playstation Classics could be cleaned up a bit? What I mean by this is on the Playstation Store, both the PS1 and PS2 classics are all mixed up in a random order and are all mixed in with each other which makes it annoying to try search for any new classics that may have been released, or just to see what classics is currently on the PS Store. Any chance we could get the PS1 & PS2 classics separated into their own categories on the PS Store?

Thanks in Advance.

It dosn’t seem Capcom has any plans at the moment but I will pass this message on.

Are you pretending to be Jawad? :D

Jawad Ashraf 03 June, 2015 @ 15:29
5.3

supersmith2500 is right, though. No current plans for MM in Europe.

Categories, listings and such are tinkered and sorted through out Store team, so hopefully they will fix any issues you may experience in the near future.

6

Are you sure about those Steins;Gate prices? For one the Vita version seems more expensive than PS3 (and only in £, every other currency is the same) and also this is quite a bit more expensive than the retail version.

6.1

It’s twice the price of retail version o_O At least the VITA one. I was going to buy this digitally, but seriously…

Well, I guess we can wait one more day for the RB3 tracks. Want the meant to be a free track too? The name and artist escapes me at the moment…

7.1

Also, it’d be ironic genius if I Appear Missing didn’t get uploaded today.

7.2

Yeah free track is Frank Turner – I Still Believe I think.

Fred Dutton 03 June, 2015 @ 14:53
13.1

The PAL code is being re-submitted by the developer shortly. Alas, that means release is still at least 10 days to 2 weeks away.

13.2

Does it really have to be that complicated?

Wow $62.95 for Steins;Gate. It’s $39 to buy a physical copy.

SO dissapointed.. NO blog post about Steins;Gate or Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy?

Okay.. Steins;Gate i can understand. But Operation Abyss.. Really? We had 1 ages ago. That was it. Finally a Vita game comes out, and no mention of it beside from here. We know Sony dont care much for the vita anymore, but could they at least TRY to act like they care about the few games that get’s released over here…

Fred Dutton 03 June, 2015 @ 14:48
16.1

I’m working on getting a Steins;Gate piece for launch day actually ;)

16.2

Thank you Fred! Good to hear that at least Steins;Gate gets some blog time. Always hurts to see these sort of titles getting no mention outside of the Store Update. Lots of people miss out on them.

16.3

Why would they advertise their ‘legacy’ system?

Just be glad there are plenty of Japanese third party developers that still support it.

17

Are we every going to see ‘Powers?’

By “we” do you mean Brits? Because it’s been available for a long time now, at least here.

Steins Gate is £39.99 on Vita, seriously ?!
It’s just under £22 on Amazon and Shopto.

andrewsqual 03 June, 2015 @ 14:45

Good to get this post out now so you have room to squeeze in the Fallout 4 post at 3pm :)

where the heavensward preorder?

20.1

I second this..when will we see Heavensward Preorder? its already up on Steam, US PS Store and JP PS Store..

shadownobody 03 June, 2015 @ 14:51
20.2

US store already have the pre-order,but it looks like we are not getting this week.

20.3

esp with the early access so close

21

So, what happened to Elphet and Leo for XRD?
The game’s description says that you can play as them, but hey, they aren’t there. Not even as DLC.
Deceptive much?

21.1

they’re supposed to be DLC, according to several sites.

21.2

Not cool, game description clearly says you can play as Elphelt and Leo, I thought they were included in the base game for EU. That’s false marketing.

ElectricRoses 03 June, 2015 @ 18:34
21.3

Are we certain they aren’t unlockable? I bought this game under the impression Elphelt was included as it clearly says you can play as her on the store itself. I’ll send a complaint otherwise as I only bought this thinking the DLC characters were included.

Wow. Rock Band 3 DLC FINALLY shows up… Am I Dreaming?

28.1

The really funny bit is it is arriving on Friday. We are told that these scattergun releases are due to “publisher request” Now Harmonix have been hounding SCEE to release these since the first pack in January, do we really believe that after *five months* of trying to get SCEE to release the first of these tracks they decided themselves to release on Friday instead of Wednesday?

halfaworldaway 03 June, 2015 @ 21:34
28.2

Yeah and only 6 months late, ah the joys of modern technology in the hands of inept people.

Do my eyes deceive me? Is that actually Rock band 3 dlc I see?

30

Just thought I’d mention…..Arc System Works have announced a follow-up to Guilty Gear Xrd called “Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator”. So far it’s only coming to Japanese arcades, but I’ve no doubt they’ll announce a console version at some point.

Makes the EU release of the original game completely redundant, at least to me. 6 months behind schedule on this one, and they were nearly a year behind schedule on Persona 4 Arena. No idea why they keep getting into this situation, do they forget EU exists every time they develop a new game??

31

Any news on harvest moon back to nature?

32

Hi Fred (and/or Jawad), with the Rock Band 3 content, there’s one song missing.

Frank Turner – “I Still Believe”

(it should be free, and was released in March in the US on the PS3 and worldwide on the XBOX)

There’s also some missing Rocksmith 2014 PS4 content… i’m waiting on the Rise Against Song Pack. 3 of the 5 songs are available, but “Prayer Of The Refugee” and “Give It All” never got added weeks ago.

Cheers!

Any chance Playstation is reviewing its refund policy to get it in line with the 21st century? Seriously Steam updated there’s yesterday because they were lagging behind EA and GOG. Time for Sony to follow suit…

Yes, do take notice Sony.

34

Still nothing regarding my questions from previous weeks regarding the Ninja Gaiden Sigma “Rachel” DLC (on PS3) and the Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty DLC? I tried asking AGAIN about the latter to the customer support but once again they demonstrated their levels of incompetence in the matter, they tried to offer me a “refund” (?) for something which was already free, and it’s no longer fully available for purchase.

Please, if possible, try to tell me something regarding BOTH issues.

ps: sorry if i post here too.

Last week I requested one PSone Classic to be added to the store which was Mega Man X3 as it’s a PAL only release and what was your response? ” Stop begging for games…”

How Ironic my second request was to add PS1/PS2 file sorting to the store too, which you have backed up @ryannumber3gamer above asking the same thing, And by the way Sony Store team, if you pay me for an hour of my time I will add the relevant menu’s to your website/Store GUI as I am a professional Website Developer.

So my response to you is to stop “Begging” for things, this isn’t the place, you should call customer services for answers to your requests and stop giving people sarcastic reply’s to their questions.

It’s very rare I post any comment in a website asking for a request, I have more important things in my life so I would appreciate not to have a rude response from somebody that doesn’t work for Sony.

Being rude will get you nowhere in life like your above statement.

You must have problems to make such a silly post. I could be “rude” but your behaviour is absolutely a lot more moronic. My life is nothing of your concern.

Also, my issue regarding the Oddworld DLC is about stuff actually released months ago. And again, Jawad replied, TWICE in two different weeks, and i’m just asking for a simple update. I’ve already contacted the developers in the past.

So where can I write a happiness letter about that nifty steins;gate availability? It’s just too awesome.

Hey

i contacted the developer on twitter about that last week and they said :

‏@vectorunit · May 29
There was an error on that PS EU blog. Riptide GP2 will be coming in the next month or 2. Beach Buggy Racing comes Tuesday, June 2.

So we need to wait a while longer for riptide

(No but seriously? I don’t get it, it’s nearly double the price.)

PLEASE PLEASE tell me someone has some idea at Sony as to when the digital pre order for final fantasy xiv heavensward will be available here in the UK and the rest of EU as the early access starts June 19th and I need to know whether or not to order a disc version, thanks in advance.

hopefully next week,i dont know nobody says anything about it neither Sony or SE,if you can buy the disc version better go for it,dont risk it with PSN

47.2

u can buy it from se store, they send codes to enter in the psn store. that are our last hope

47.3

found that few minutes after add replay…. from official ff14 forum

“Greetings,

Now that digital pre-orders of the PS3 and PS4 versions of Heavensward are available on the North American PlayStation Store we’d like to give you an update on the situation for pre-orders in Europe.

We are happy to confirm that the digital versions of Heavensward for PS3/PS4 will be available to purchase on the European PlayStation Store from Friday 19th June!

By purchasing either the standard or collector’s editions of Heavensward for PS3/PS4 between 19th to 23rd June, you will be able to play Heavensward content throughout the early access period, as well as receive the pre-order bonus items.

We’ll follow up with further details at a later late, but rest assured that those who wish to order the digital PS3/PS4 versions on the European PlayStation Store, and obtain the pre-order bonuses, will be able to do so!”

Any chance of fixing the Pinball Arcade Season Four issue? There are two bundles available for around the same price. One works on both PS3 and Vita, the other PS3 only. Unfortunately it was the PS3 only version that came out first. I bought that one expecting the same cross-buy as season’s 1 – 3.

I now have a season of Pinball Arcade I’ll rarely play and a Vita waiting for the content I paid for.

49

Freedom Wars theme? Come on. Bring it.

Why is Run Like Hell! TREASURE BUNDLE listed as PS3 game?
This is not PS3 game. Its a Vita game, even game ID in your link is showing Vita game ID.
And in game page, it say clear the game is compatible with PS Vita only.
Sony should correct this so people on PS3 dont buy the game they cant use.

About Tetris Ultimate, it was said to come for PS3 aswell this week, but only Vita version got out.

What about Assassins Creed Chronicles China, is this game still coming to PS3?
You guys announce it in february, but UBISOFT later said to abandon last gen development.
It would be nice to know if we can expect this game or not.
Thanks.

I didn’t even know China was supposed to come out on old-gen.
