Wow – nothing for the Vita this week 🙁

 

Where is Gone Home ?

    Francesca Mead 12 January, 2016 @ 1:59 pm    

    The PAL release for Gone Home hasn’t yet been confirmed. We’ll release an update on this soon.

     
    StevenJamesHyde 12 January, 2016 @ 2:23 pm    

    Is a post on this blog entitled “Acclaimed adventure Gone Home hits PS4 in January 2016”, featuring an embedded video which narrows the date to January 12th 2016, not considered confirmation then?

    http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2015/12/07/acclaimed-adventure-gone-home-hits-ps4-in-january-2016/

     
    supersmith2500 12 January, 2016 @ 2:27 pm    

    I heard this game is also made by the same guys who made Costumer Quest so pretty much here we go again.

     
    Lethalx08 12 January, 2016 @ 2:30 pm    

    Steven the trailer says ESRB (US) right at the beginning which means release date information included with be for the US region only unless it states otherwise which it unfortunately doesn’t.

    So the trailer is technically right. It’s out on the 12th but only in North America.

     

    @lethal the post on the EU blog says it releases January 2016, whether the video says NA or not is a side point. That’s what you get when you do a lazy copy and paste job though, typical EU Blog though…

     
    StevenJamesHyde 12 January, 2016 @ 3:16 pm    

    Though I must say, having seen the trophy list I’m no longer particularly bothered. No plat, and a trophy for finishing it in LESS THAN A MINUTE? I’m not paying £16 for that…

     
    CoolRichy007UK 12 January, 2016 @ 3:18 pm    

    The game has gone home

     
    Championface 12 January, 2016 @ 3:29 pm    

    Do NOT waste your time, or money for that matter. I had it on PC and it was rubbish.
    Incredibly overrated.

     

    https://twitter.com/GoneHomeGame/status/686944443191050240 – ratings issue. for a game that’s been out in the UK for PC gamers for years. We console users must need different rules?

    @Supersmith2500 – No, it’s not.

     
    GametimeUK 13 January, 2016 @ 12:01 am    

    It will release alongside the PS3 version of Counter Strike GO.

     

    ^ or the DLC and update for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-!

     

    Hate to burst your bubble boys but for once the delay is nothing to do with scee it is a European problem & that includes xbox

 
Regueiro_1984 12 January, 2016 @ 1:07 pm   3

Any news of digimon cyber sleuth reserve? im loking forward for it.

 
LordRastan 12 January, 2016 @ 1:08 pm   4

great, nothing for vita, towerfall is due to classification, abes odissey is gold… but for this month, nothing at all….

     

    i didn’t even know New ‘n’ Tasty went gold on Vita. Meh, it took *only* 1.5 years from the PS4 release.

     

    Lance_87 doesn’t have anything to do with scee & is the Same for all regions

 

Woop! Hyped for Rebel Galaxy!

 
CPT_CODFISH 12 January, 2016 @ 1:11 pm   6

Any update on the twitch app yet????

 
CSR-Montoya 12 January, 2016 @ 1:15 pm   7

Bloodborne Goty or Dragon Quest Heroes in January Sale?

 

The Banner Saga, Rebel Galaxy, Arc The Lad and Super Dodge Ball for me. Amplitude last week, great start to the year.

 

Finally the Infinifactory for Eu store. Three weeks from waiting was painfull. Really looking forward for it.

 

any new additions at the sales ?

 

What exactly is Harvest Moon: Back to Nature compatible with? On the webstore, the info box on the left only mentions PS3, but the description says it’s playable on PSP and PS3 — no mention of Vita. I don’t want to buy it only to find it’s inexplicably incompatible with my Vita, the only platform I’m interested in playing it on.

    Francesca Mead 12 January, 2016 @ 2:00 pm    

    Harvest Moon: Back to Nature is compatible with Vita.

     
    supersmith2500 12 January, 2016 @ 2:07 pm    

    It’s not! That’s Hero of Leaf Valley.

     

    Mixed responses here. To clarify, I’m talking about the PS1 classic, which isn’t listed at all on the Vita’s native store, and there’s no mention of Vita compatibility on the webstore.

     
    legionari 12 January, 2016 @ 2:44 pm    

    Going of the store on PC Back to Nature is only compatible with PS3 for now
    Hopefully Vita compatibly soon so I’d advise don’t buy it yet if you just want it on Vita and then see if it becomes compatible in the future

    MissDreamer 12 January, 2016 @ 2:46 pm    

    Hi, I can also confirm that Harvest Moon: Back to Nature (PS1) is not compatible with the Vita. I just tried it myself. I too would like to see this compatible. Thanks.

     

    @MissDreamer: Thanks for confirming. I guess I’ll refrain from buying it for now.

 
Witcher70 12 January, 2016 @ 1:23 pm   12

Will The Witness be available on the store for pre-order?

 
legionari 12 January, 2016 @ 1:25 pm   13

Any news on Gone Home?

 
StevenJamesHyde 12 January, 2016 @ 1:30 pm   14

Your PS+ section is still linking to the PSP version of Patton, FYI

 
AussieOutsider 12 January, 2016 @ 1:31 pm   15

No Disturbed Rock Band DLC???

 
StevenJamesHyde 12 January, 2016 @ 1:32 pm   16

No Tharsis?

     
    AidenEdmonds 12 January, 2016 @ 3:05 pm    

    Please answer Tharsis questions!

    All info points to a simultaneous release for today.

    Let us throw our money at you!

    Francesca Mead 12 January, 2016 @ 3:33 pm    

    January 19th is the current release date for Tharsis.

 
Spartan283 12 January, 2016 @ 1:36 pm   17

Where is Gone Home? Let me guess, we as second class citizens to our American cousins have to wait another wee or two or in the case of Three Fourths Home we waited 3 months or so! Why announce release dates if know one sticks to them!?

     
    CoolRichy007UK 12 January, 2016 @ 3:29 pm    

    Yea wat he said enough is enough i say give us all usa psn games and give the usa eu games

 
EDWARD_BLAKE1986 12 January, 2016 @ 1:38 pm   18

Wasn’t Gone Home supposed to launch today???

 

Normally I would buy games like Act It Out for local multiplayer, but since it requires players to actually look away instead of sending the charades “secret” to a mobile device it’s probably not going to work for my group of friends.

 

Thanks for finally re-adding the “New This Week” tab on the PC store.

However, some content can’t still be added to the Wishlist as of several weeks later. Any ETA for a fix?

 

Why SkyScrappers isn’t on the finnish store? I don’t really want to make another eu account to buy it. 🙁

 
ZeroAbbadon 12 January, 2016 @ 2:16 pm   22

Yay! The Star Wars PS2 games!

 
Lethalx08 12 January, 2016 @ 2:20 pm   23

Who do people have to bug about getting games released elsewhere to be released over here, just curious.

There’s a few games i’d like to play that are only on the US store, stuff like Mortal Kombat Decepition Unchained (PSP), Mega Man X4, X5 & Legends (PS1) & Emperor’s new groove (PS1). Also apps like Twitch not being available here it a bit annoying tho i know that’s on twitch themselves.

With the other disney games being available here, it seems odd that one is missing. Capcom i’m used with as they pulled the same crap with EU releases on Nintendo 3DS & i have no idea why Warner Bros never bothered with the MK PSP digital release.

     

    They didn’t even bother with MK9 Komplete in digital format, actually. I had to buy it physically.

     
    Alexiel-FR 12 January, 2016 @ 2:40 pm    

    sorry but i dont see as much issue on xbox one, they release all their games mostly at the same time on a global scale , and compared to sony on this particular issue, it’s day and night… so if MS manage to have a real global xbox live, why does sony have do region lock PSN ? for example, it’s been now near 10 years that you can ask to change your xbox live account from one region to another, for example when i go to the USA, and back to europe, at sony they still don(t offer this service … and still no rewards from buying from the store, like xbox do or the USA PSN,

     
    CoolRichy007UK 12 January, 2016 @ 3:16 pm    

    Stop moaning

 
supersmith2500 12 January, 2016 @ 2:20 pm   24

Still no Towerfall for PSVita and nothing for the system. Such joke!

Glad were finally getting Star Wars title but on Friday. Why is it some PSN games come out on a Friday now instead? Any reason?

 
gecomaman 12 January, 2016 @ 2:41 pm   25

Still no Twitch App for PS4, still no Towerfall for Vita & Gone Home is apparently now not coming out now… thanks Sony.

 
chickenbaltipie 12 January, 2016 @ 2:42 pm   26

I was hoping to see Gone Home this week. Didn’t realise the EU were getting it later (perhaps)

Has the size of the PVZ GF2 Beta been announced – might have to shuffle things around

 

I bought The Treasures of Montezuma 4 right before christmas when it was released, the ps4 version works fine, but the Vita version I have tried to download over, and over and again, it will download but when it tries to install the downloaded file I just get the errorcode C2-12383-7) I have tried to reset my vita database, etc, but to no susccess.. Are the download file corrupt from the store?, can you check it out? When I access the store from pc there are a version avail which are “free” but when I tries to purchase it will not allow me, so have there been put a new version up?. I really want to play it on my Vita as it’s a game made for it and not so fun on my ps4… I really hope you can look into it!, Thanks in advence! 🙂

 
The_Kiriyama 12 January, 2016 @ 2:47 pm   28

Tharsis? Its out today in UK/EU. So….?

 
ItsKrista 12 January, 2016 @ 2:53 pm   29

No Gone Home yet 🙁 but at least we finally get the Star Wars PS2 games

 

Is the Force Awakens pinball pack cross-buy? Which version do i need to purchase if it is?

 
CoolRichy007UK 12 January, 2016 @ 3:14 pm   31

The amplitude dlc better be for everyone who didnt back the kickstarter who got it when they got the game early or il be having words with harmonix

 
CoolRichy007UK 12 January, 2016 @ 3:15 pm   32

All ps4 games usa and eu should be out at same time i cant wait to see what gets delayed next !

 

Nice that were finally getting those Star Wars games

 
jos3moreira 12 January, 2016 @ 3:42 pm   34

20€ for a 2 year old indie? Are you serious?!

     
    RoaringMdog18 12 January, 2016 @ 7:21 pm    

    Do you understand that it costs money and lots of time to port games to different consoles? Its not a 2 year old game on the PS4, so why the hell wouldnt it be 20€ ?

 

Another store update and momtezuma4 is.still.broken.for.vita. Maybe its.time.for.refund our money? Maybe someone.from PSStore.staff tell us when it be playable on.Vita?

 

So no Arslan: Warriors of Legend demo? Why am I not surprised?

Also the PS4 store is a mess, where are the new sales? Are we expected to peer into some crystal ball or use a dowsing rod to find the new titles on sale?

What happened to putting all plus titles for all 3 systems on PS4 and the ability to add them to our download list?

 
K1NG5K1N5 12 January, 2016 @ 4:32 pm   37

I bought the assassins creed unity season pass and it said it will include all 3 of the chronicles games, got China but it says 7.99 for India.
Was it removed from the season pass?

     
    ZeroAbbadon 12 January, 2016 @ 6:48 pm    

    No, it didn’t. It said you would get China and that’s it. It NEVER said you would get all of the Chronicles games.

ehtisham_984 12 January, 2016 @ 5:36 pm   38

It’s the 12th January and Assassin’s creed chronicle India can’t be found in PS store on my ps4!!?

 

You have forgotten the Disturbed Rock Band 4 DLC 😐 . It cannot be that hard to publish these Rock Band DLCs regularly, the SCEA and the XBOX store teams can do it as well…

 

What is the release date for Rebel Galaxy?

 

How many people can still not sign in to the digital PS store uk or US ,i know am not the only 1 .2yrs once ive gt in ,why do i have to use a PC.Ps4 store is ok it gets it done,get a grip “SONY” .While your at it am drowned in indie games .NO FRIGGING MORE ENOUGH IS ENOUGH .

 

Hi Francesca. As per @RockBand on Twitter: “A note for SCEE players: the Disturbed DLC will not be available this week in your region. We’ll update as soon as we know an exact date.”

Can you offer any insight as to why Rock Band (and, until recently, Rocksmith) players in Europe as consistently subjected to missing and delayed content with no explanation?

I’m not even interested in this particular batch of DLC but invariably the same thing will happen when the next tracks I do want are released in the SCEA region and on Xbox Live worldwide. I’m also still missing tracks that should have been released three months ago.

Unless I missed a more recent post, the last time we had any comment on the blog about the situation was in a post from Harmonix, and not SCEE. I and others are frustrated by the constant DLC issues – don’t you want our money? – but equally frustrating is the lack of engagement from Sony.

     
    Luizelgespuizel 13 January, 2016 @ 12:14 am    

    Xbox does what PS doesnt.

    Dont know how SCEE can do so much wrong and Microsoft does everything right on worldwide things. Im glad I bought Rock Band on Xbox.

    Francesca Mead 13 January, 2016 @ 9:22 am    

    Please continue to check Harmonix channels for any information regarding the release dates of Rock Band DLC. Any differences in release scheduling are subject to the publisher’s decision.

 
magmar126 12 January, 2016 @ 11:28 pm   43

Still no fix for Treasures of Montezuma 4 for PS Vita?
It’s been several weeks now and I’m really considering a refund, bought the game solely for the Vita.

Ignoring your customers doesn’t make it go away, man up and atleast acknowledge us/our complaints.

 
Jazzalinko 12 January, 2016 @ 11:35 pm   44

Any idea on when we get Taco Master?

     
    Huono_peleis 13 January, 2016 @ 12:03 am    

    Hi profitable Chillingo employee! It’s amazing that your boss hasn’t told you that you’ve been able to get Taco Master on Android or iOS for free since 2011.

     

    … does this reply even make sense?

AngryGamer94 13 January, 2016 @ 7:18 am   45

Where’s EDF 4.1?(Earth Defense Force)
When is this coming out?

 

That Arc the Lad is miiiighty tasty. Remember playing the demo 10 times over.

 
mondo-gamer 13 January, 2016 @ 10:08 am   47

What is Amplitude Backer Bundle & Amplitude Backer Century Club
and does it apply to common people like me who that just love
that game and plays it now as years before on previous consoles?

 
ste_the_legend 13 January, 2016 @ 10:26 am   48

The price for The Banner Saga is a joke. The launch price of indie titles has sharply increased over the past year or so and this has to hurt sales. I would be inclined to take a chance on a game if the price was £9.99 but £15.99 is just too much. It’s only £4 on android. I will do what I always do these days with indie games. Wait 3 months at the most for the price to drop or the game to appear on PS+. I’m sure I’m not alone.

     

    It’s non-sale price on Steam is £15, iirc. So it is priced around the same.

    I’m sure more people would buy it at a lower price, but that could be said of everything in life 😉

     
    drmorris79 13 January, 2016 @ 11:13 am    

    It was £3.74p in the Steam sale, I think i’ve seen it go for even cheaper on the pc sometimes..

    By the way, nice Avatar! 😛

 
paleboyjack 13 January, 2016 @ 2:25 pm   49

Any more Star Wars games rereleasing this year?

 

What a suprise, nobody can tell us when Montezuma4 will be fixed! #4theplayers
