There is a big problem with european DLCs for european “CoD: Advanced Warfare”.
It is impossible to delete DLCs, after they have been downloaded to the HDD.
I’m not talking about permanent licenses, which are always shown as “Installed”, but about the real files, which are occupy many gigabytes on HDD.
Probably this is a bug in PSN licenses (I don’t know, how PSN works, so, I can only speculate – maybe those DLC are flagged as “permanent” by mistake).
Or, maybe, this is a bug in PS4 firmware or file system.

Usually, user always can delete installed game data together with all DLCs, and then download only what he need.
But this method does not work for European version of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare”.
It is revealed, because US players advising to delete game data and not to download DLCs to improve matchmaking (the game will search players only with the same set of DLC).
But for European gamers this method does not work, as confirmed by several forum posts (just do Google search...

But for European gamers this method does not work, as confirmed by several forum posts (just do Google search “ps4 advanced warfare can’t delete dlc”), and I’m having this problem also.
And, it seems, only European version is affected, because US players can delete game with DLC (and for them DLC should be downloaded again).

After deleting all of the game data together with DLC, it seems, that it is gone from HDD.
But as soon as the disc is inserted or download started (for digital version), all previously downloaded DLC reappear as “Installed” even without downloading them (for Cod:AW this is about 20 gigabytes for 5 map packs, if you have Season Pass).
Because those DLCs, actually, were not been deleted together with game data, as should.

Also, installed game with a patch and every DLC fills 70 gigabytes on HDD, but data removal frees much smaller space (about 45-50 gigabytes is freed), which indicates, that some files are still occupy HDD space.
And that not freed space equals the size of all downloaded DLCs.

So, after you downloaded CoD:AW DLC you will lose 20 gigabytes (if you own Season Pass) of HDD space forever, even if you delete all game data.
Currently, the only solution to get rid of CoD:AW DLCs is to format (initialize) HDD.
And to lose 20 gigabytes or to format HDD are both very unwanted options.
Implementation of possibility to delete DLC separately would be much more reasonable solution.
Some games have hundreds of DLC files and it would be natural to give users possibility to manage their content.

You are correct but this is with all games, I have a few of those in my library where I had the title with addons, but once uninstalled the addons remain in the library.

2.2

@ jfontyman
This is normal for some games, when those “Installed” DLCs are just a record in your account – when DLC content is already included in to game and PS4 just use them with unlock license.
Well, when they stay in library… can be annoying, can’t deny.
But in case with CoD:AW – this is real files, and after removing all game data those DLCs are not listed anywhere, but they still occupy HDD space.
I believe, that this is not supposed to be this way.

2.3

@ jfontyman
My bad…
They are listed in “My Add-ons” tab as “Installed”.
But still, there is no possibility to get rid of them and free space (and 20 gigabytes is very noticeable amount).

Is Teslagrad Cross-Buy? And will this apply to those of us who’ve already bought it? I bought it for PS4 then I think it was given out on PS+ for PS3 as well. Thanks.

3.1

Yes, it is Cross Buy – so if you have it on any other system you’ll be able to downlod the Vita version.

This is fantastic news! Thanks :)

Thanks for the speedy response, Fred!

Wowers…how much for Bioshock Infinite!?

The price laughable considering you can digitally buy Bioshock Infinite for £19.99 and the season pass currently or £8.00, that’s £27.99 instead of £39.99 and if you buy from the shops a retail disc will cost £6-£9.

I think someone is drunk.

Welcome to SCEE pricing. Leave your senses at the door.

4.3

not to mention it was on ps+ and retail can be had for 10€ or less preowned…..

Too bad the store team messed up the Bloodborne DLC (pre-order).

– The web store lists the DLC as not purchased. (has price and “add to basket” button)

– My purchase history does not list the game.

– My transaction history lists the purchase.

– My download queue has the DLC and pre-order theme set to “waiting” (my PS4 at home is turned off at the moment).

So I won’t know if any of this actually works before I get home later today. But there’s definitely something messed up because the store doesn’t list the game as purchased and it’s missing from my purchase list.

Yet another botch-job by the EU store team. There’s several threads on this issue on various forums including Sony’s own.

Too Chris, know if we’ll ever get Super Starwars? I kinda don’t care about Battlefront but those old games interests me still :)

6.1

Yes, I believe Disney is planning on releasing this in SCEE. As soon as I have a confirmed date I’ll pass it on.

6.2

I would think it’s just a matter of time. It comes with the Star Wars PS4 in the UK, so if there is a hold-up with the release it’s most likely a territory issue, ie, other countries under the EU store that aren’t in the UK.

6.3

Plus, shop selling the Star Wars PS4 have notices that they can’t be sent outside of the UK, so I would definitely put it down to a territory issue.

Still no Yakuza 5? Where are the avatars and theme?
No Vita Tearaway DLC (really, only LittleBigPaper for the best western Vita game…)?

December 1 is coming….. o(≧∇≦o) I hope we will see Yakuza 5 xD.
2015 end is near (*/∇\*).

Warning regarding Dragon Quest Slime weapons – unless I’ve missed something, these are useless. They’re as powerful if not less powerful than the characters starting weapons, so completely pointless.

If there’s some trick to powering them I’d like to know!

Regarding the Slime Weapons, they are just slightly more powerful than the starting weapons, but they have a bonus effect called “Helping hand from Healix +10.0%” meaning you’re more likely to receive heals from the little guy. They are still though, pretty much useless.

I got them as a Preorder bonus and used them for all of 10 minutes. Avoid unless you want some useless blue weapons :-S

Hey will we get the playstation plsu annoucement today or tomorrow? Just want to know cause I’ve got a blog on it to quickly write!

9.1

The announcement will come sometime between tomorrow and the 1st of Dec (source: Fred’s Twitter).

Still hoping to see Vita/PSP compatibility for Harvest Moon: Back to Nature.

Also, there’s something terribly lazy about PS4 remasters of PS3 titles carrying an “HD” affix. What were the original PS3 versions if not HD?

10.1

Maybe “Higher” Definition? lol. It does seem ridiculous, PS3s were all HD anyway.

Remasters brought the resolution to 1080… most PS3 titles were on 720…

OH well and in some cases they doubled the framerate.

Rayman. Rayman 2. PSOne Classics. Belgian Store. Gone. Please look into and fix.

How much more clear can I be about this? It’s been two months since I raised this issue with both the Store and Playstation Support teams.

Since when don’t we list PS3/Vita DLCs anymore? More and more information is being removed from these Store update posts as we go on. At this rate, by next year we won’t even get a post at all.
How come the US blog can still list every single thing – including themes and avatars – that comes out, yet here we can’t even achieve half of that?

Just FYI, there is a dynamic theme out from Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Remastered for €0.99

yeah, they didn’t even list all the new free avatars from Batman Arkham Knight…

Still no explanation on the increase in price for the Bloodborne DLC – keep those fingers in your ears and repeat “Na Na Na” after me.

12.1

What kind of explanation would you like to hear? They increased the price because they believe the expansion is of a high enough quality to warrant it – and that people will buy it regardless of a relatively small increase in price. Do you want them to spell that out for you?

Sure, they can also then explain why they ONLY increased the UK/EU/AUS price and not the U.S. Price. They can also APOLOGISE for announcing the wrong price and then IGNORING everyone that has asked them about it since.

The cost of the increase is irrelevant. People buying it anyway is irrelevant. If you are happy to be treated like a cash cow then fair play, enjoy that.

Well, if the increase it’s only for EU territories… that’s Europe to you, i guess? It ain’t gonna change, you’ll have to boycott the expansion.

So when are we getting PS1 and PS2 games on PS4? Sony confirmed a PS2 emulator is in the works for PS4.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-ps2-emulation-on-ps4-performance-analysis

Hurry up and announce this already. Also we better have cross buy and being able to use our discs.

It will be a PSX announcement, I’m positive of that.

Better framerate? Maybe there’s hope to see “G-Surfers” (aka poor man’s Wipeout for PS2) running at 30FPS…

And i bet that if they’ll bring PS1 emulation on PS4, MGS Special Missions will still NOT work from physical discs. I know PS1 discs cannot be read, but never say never.

Bloodborne DLC is freaking expensive :(

Still no Super Star Wars??? What the hell??? If they’re available to get for the ones who bought the battlefront bundle then why aren’t they available on the store individually yet??? Come on Sony, still leaving us hanging here, us Europeans seem to be getting the shaft, that’s another week we have to do without Super Star Wars, is it even coming to the eu store at all???

16

SUPER STAR WARS!! not one proper answer from the whole community team!! I’d buy it from the US store if the vitas account system wasn’t so bad!!
Seems EU PlayStation just seem to sit on their collective asses all day and shrug their shoulders when issues, questions and anything negative gets raised….

They’ve been answering the question all week.

Fred has answered it no fewer than 6 times on Twitter, and once on this post!

(tl;dr – Disney holding it up, release date coming soon).

Mr. Fred Dutton (Chris doesn’t seem to reply anyway), i’m still wondering what happened to your “investigation” regarding a certain issue you should already know about. Latest reply from you was on September 30th.

18

Also how come we’re the only platform and region that’s has to wait until Friday for Minecraft episode 3, tired of seeing telltale tweeting ‘releasing on all formats 24th’ yet EU have to wait til Friday

19

I’ll ask yet again but why on earth has Hotline Miami 2 been removed from the NZ store?

You’ve forgotten to list the LittleBigPlanet Seasonal Turkey Head DLC and Sackboy’s Prehistoric Asset Pack DLC.

Yakuza 5 game, avatares and theme?
SFV avatares too please.

Hi Fred! Just two questions:

1) Why Nubla isn’t available on the Italian Store?
2) Where’s BlazeRush for PS4?

Let’s all moan about the plus announcement and then moan some more about the plus announcement when it’s announced :/

“Meh, moar indie games i’m never gonna play anyway because i use PS+ only for cloud saving, discounts and multiplayer!”

24

Hi guys why Primal Carnage: Extincation is not available on Playstation Saudi Store? :(

Wasn’t Beyond : Two Souls already in HD ?

HD just means 1080 to them nowadays… :/

25.2

1080p? You’re giving Sony to much credit ;)

900p is more like it.

Minecraft Holiday Pack (£24.99/€29.99/AU$44.95) is the full-game plus 7 DLC packs, so it’s a bit confusing to list it as just DLC.

26.1

I was confused by that too.

I have all the DLC anyway.

Chris/Fred any idea when we’ll be getting refunded for Afro Samurai 2?

27.1

I hope to have an update for you towards the end of the week on this.

Thanks for the reply, appreciate it.

can’t wait to play the blood borne dlc!

is what i would say if the pre-order worked and i got the dlc i got the theme but the license has run out

CookieMonsterES 24 November, 2015 @ 16:18
28.1

Go to Playstation Network, Restore Licenses. That should fix it for you.

29

I guess keeping up with new Rock Band 4 releases for one week was too much hard work. Take a month off, you’ve earned it.

29.1

Lol I didn’t even see it in the list. Now I feel bad. :(

Beyond: Two Souls HD with Czech subtitles ?

CoolRichy007UK 24 November, 2015 @ 15:04

Yea FRED when are we gonna get loads of themes for the store its just 1 a week atm its not fair the usa gets more themes and avatars then us im starting to think they are taking all themes avatars the eu should have il be happy when you fred smack sony awake to give us more themes avatars each week and if we dont get any Christmas themes or avatars then sony eu dont care about us

apparently, scee don’t allow themes for the ps4 unless they’re related to a game or some promotion.

which would explain the pitifully small number of themes we get on the eu store.

there are some Anne Stokes themes i’d like to get.
but we can’t get themes based on the work of a british artist here in the UK or Europe because of some ridiculous rules scee have decided to implement.

probably another example of the backwards way scee operates that is keeping people from getting all the rock band content they’re owed.

32

Hey, are we getting the Uncharted 4 avatars in the EU regions any time soon?

Vita DLC still not being listed? Why?

When will we get Star Wars bounty Hunter for PS4?

Would still like sims games that were on psp to be made compatible with vita,
That and theme hospital, theme park, and populous..

36

Any news on if Beyond Two Souls is censored again, like the European version was back then on PS3?

36.1

Retail vision out with heveryain out next year.

36.2

I’d like to know that too please, I’d like to buy the digital version on Thursday.

Handball is not just a questionable olympic sport anymore, it’s a questionable vita game as well.

Can you please start listing Persona 4: Dancing All Night DLC on the blog post? Every Friday it just randomly appears on the store, and I have to hunt for anything that looks new.

They should also list all the new Batman avatars for PS4.

And the Samurai News addons for Samurai Warriors 3. It’s been the 21st release, lol.

And many more…

39

When will Minecraft PS4 purchases be able to get the vita version at reduced price?

Minecraft gets discounted?

39.2

@Lance_87 When I bought Minecraft for PS3, the price of the Vita version turned to free, same happened to the PS4 Version. Think of it as a strange version of crossbuy, where you have to claim the other versions yourself.

39.3

Yeah, and I just bought the PS4 version and would have to pay another £14 to get it on vita/ps3 when most people just paid about £3 to upgrade.

Could you please confirm what subtitle languages will be available on “Beyond Two Souls HD”? In the retail release of the game on PS3, for example, there were Greek subtitles (when the game was released in Greece).

not 100% sure, but the demo of the uncharted collection have all subtitle options (including greek) so if this is the same case, it will also have all options

Are Super StarWars games PS4 & PSVita cross-buy?

Well, just bought for PS4 and confirmed is cross-buy, got the PSVita version as well.
Cheers.

41.2

Super star wars hd port is test for ps2 games in hd.

41.3

@ScooterMix No, its not. Super Star Wars is not a ps2 game. Stop spreading false information.

Hi fred great update sorry about complains really want that primal and star wars game since we should get same repect than usa store maybe should do reply but any word ff7 hd since mean to be out this winter.

42.1

Ps4 getting ps2 support soon with hd and trophics support take that MS xbox trash.

Why try and flame Xbox? This will be ps2 games that we have to buy again, a while generation older than Xbox that support you opening the games already. Not even comparible.

What’s going on with Minecraft Story Mode? Telltale said it’s out everywhere today, but this says Thursday? I mean episode two was on a friday and that almost made sense with the disk release the same day but why the delay?

Looking for Beyond two Souls…. And I don’t see it on the PSN store.

Doesn’t release until 26th in the EU. The US version may release today, but probably in a few hours…

44.2

Ah I live in the US. I just hate waiting that’s all.

I check the game Primal Carnage Extinction in the store it’s not there! And my account is kuwait so how long when the game is out?

Will be there box edition of Bloodborne GOTY?

47

Is the Old Hunter’s Expansion on the disc,or does it come with a voucher code for Bloodborne Game Of The Year Edition? I much prefer everything on the disc. If it isn’t on the disc,it give’s me no incentive of buying this edition.

Please help Fred, there’s only about 50 dlc songs for Rock band 4 on the South African Playstation store, whereas there’s 1500 on the UK store

Any chance of getting Nubla out to more European region stores? There was no information about it only coming to certain regions (UK, Slovenia, Spain being ones I know of, at least) in the blog post last week.

Solitaire fo Vita :) I like the way of thinking , my Vita needs small nice games.
