New on PlayStation Store: Resident Evil 0, World of Tanks, Tharsis, more

A Boy and his Blob, Inside My Radio and Croixleur Sigma also launch this week

It’s a busy week on PlayStation Store, with a number of big titles going live in the next few days. Look out for classic zombie action in Resident Evil 0; combat sim phenomenon World of Tanks, a fistful of independent gems in Tharsis, A Boy and his Blob and Inside My Radio; and a PS Vita release for Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.

One more thing: You’ll notice that we’re no longer listing prices in the weekly Store update, and the same will apply to regular sales and discounts posts, starting with the new promotion kicking off tomorrow. For pricing information applicable to your region, we ask that you click through the links to PlayStation Store. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Francesca Mead ~ Can you please look into why Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PSV) has been delisted? Maybe it’s just an error on your part. The DLC and Demo is there, but the game has gone missing. I bought it 6 months ago, and want to play it now, but there’s no way to download it.

I also contacted Atlus about the issue.

It should be in your download list

@link1983 It is, but it does not work. Already tried that. Vita and PS3 download queue.

Yeah it’s missing, but Atlus has been notified. I just went to my download list on my Vita and starterd downloading, so at least that works for me.

Any news on when Gone Home will be out?

Francesca Mead 19 January, 2016 @ 13:50
2.1

As mentioned last week, we’ll let you know when we have a release date confirmed.

2.2

2029

Shortly after CS:GO

Gone home?

Where is Gone Home? Please don’t tell me it’s going to end up like Counter Strike: GO/Super Street Fighter II HD Remix where the EU release is totally forgotten about despite it being released in the US without issue on PS4 and worldwide on Xbox!

Chill, it’s been a week.

“One more thing: You’ll notice that we’re no longer listing prices in the weekly Store update, and the same will apply to regular sales and discounts posts”

Why though?

5.1

I would guess it’s because of the fairly large pricing disparity between regions under the “EU” territory. Not the sort of thing a business wants to highlight.

I noticed u also stopped with the pictures with the games ? Kinda weird US store does this so pretty.

Nice colums with sale prices .. pretty pictures with every game (even movies and albums)

lol this is getting worse and worse…

(been asking this for 2 weeks or so :p )

since SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! is in the january sale,

will u ever do the ‘Gessen X Hebijo DLC and Soundtrack’-dlc pack on sale too? its 9.99 still .. twice as much as the game is now in the january sale.

Plz put this dlc pack on sale since its 50% of the full game kinda.

Thanks

DLC rarely goes on sale in Europe. Deal with it.

do you have any news regarding towerfall on vita? its been more than a month since it was released on US…

Thanks!

7.1

I wonder when Sony will regard Europe as a continent too

CleverTwigboy 20 January, 2016 @ 02:45
7.2

What is a Europe?

Should someone ask for it:

Rebel Galaxy will – according to the devs – release next week:

https://twitter.com/RebelGalaxy/status/689133841701720064

The game was released on pc i had to wait for the ps4 version…
The game was released on the US i had to wait for the european version…
The game was released on some countries in europe i had to wait for my country version…

Meanwhile on pc the game already has a 33% discount. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Will Shutshimi ever be released in Europe?

I’m waiting for the release of Rebel Galaxy and as many others apparently Gone Home. Both are out in the US. Any news on those two games?

Francesca Mead 19 January, 2016 @ 13:55
10.1

Rebel Galaxy is out on the Store, it released on 15/1/16.

10.2

According to the Dev-Team Rebel Galaxy will release on 25th/26th of January in non-english speaking parts of Europe ;-)

https://twitter.com/RebelGalaxy/status/689133841701720064

“Rebel Galaxy is out on the Store, it released on 15/1/16.” – It’s not and it didn’t.

I like the way the PlayStation Store Blog becomes a little more cryptic each week. This week we would like you to spend more time clicking links to see the price. Next week we will not post the store update, it’s up to you to look on the store to see what’s changed. Come on guys, we know you need the clicks but this is simple stuff!

12

Still no InFamous avatars, right? :(

Hi Francesca. Can you please explain us why here in Europe we have not Organ Trail and Towerfall for psvita?
On twitter I read that Organ Trail has pegi and towerfall is already out on ps4 so I can’t understand why…

Anyway is fantastic all the announced vita games, I hope that you psbloggers will write about vita more than last year. Thanks for all ^-^

Please answer me

pls respond

Please its important

This new policy of not putting prices on these posts is annoying. I come to the blog so that I can see the prices and the items that are released, or on sale.

Now I may as well just go to the store and find them myself, it seems almost pointless to say anything other than “there’s a sale on!” in a post, if we have to go to the actual sale page ourselves to see the prices. It’s a small thing, putting up two prices doesn’t take that long if you’re organised (hell, other members have done it for you before no more than 20 minutes after you pot the lists)

But it just seems like one more step towards Sony Europe being a lazy company, that cares nothing for their loyal fan base, because they have a company motto of “4 the players” and a working motto of “Lets do nothing… 4 the players”

14.1

more like “Let’s PLAY nothing 4 the players”, just to add more fuel to the fire.

14.2

They want you to go to the store instead so you will not see the BS price differences.

@KylieDog

Pretty much….what’s absolutely fascinating is the way SCEE operates. They seem to think that when they removed the link to the US blog that somehow people neither bookmarked that blog or googled it or whatever search engine people use. That we wouldn’t know what the US vs EU gets and the prices.

Then when they realised people could use same search engine to look at the US store they then tried to make it that by clicking on any link on US blog would bring (in my case GB) store and a content not available page. Fortunately most people know how to input words into a search engine and circumvent this.

They now seem to think that by not including prices or even images and leaving off content of other systems (PS3 and Vita) that they would somehow negate any negativity. A bit like sweeping things under the rug and hoping no one will notice. Sorry but it’s not the 1980’s and we aren’t male teens swiping our fathers dirty magazines and hiding them under the bed. We have this won...

We have this wonderful thing we all use…psst the internet.

As annoying as this is to us, let’s think of the devs who have spent months if not years creating games that the company who should be telling their customers about the product along with prices can’t be bothered to pass along that info….you know the jobs that are dependant on the sale of their product. If I was a dev I wouldn’t be concerned with releasing anything on PSN.

Then there are the sales..somewhat hinted at and yet it’s hard to decipher what sales are new and what has been on sale for the last couple of weeks. I have an eidetic memory but I’m not wasting it to remember stuff I don’t want to buy.

No wonder there have been so many SCEE employees arriving and leaving the blog, working for them must be akin to sawing ones head off with a chainsaw.

No pricing..what a genius idea! Now people can’t complain when there being ripped off against other regions.

Also, adding to my post above, not having the price really changes wether the game is a full price or PSN game. So I’m tending not to click on any if I’m not sure what the game is? Shame. You will see sales diminish.

You can’t be serious.
Last year we were promised that the blog posts would IMPROVE, not this.

They dont list any ps3 or vita dlc … themes .. avatars .. nothing

so this is just the next step

Any news on when INSIDE by Playdead Studio;s will be out?

Francesca Mead 19 January, 2016 @ 16:00

We cannot currently comment on this title – please check Playdead’s channels for any news.

No Rock Band DLC again?!

WonderWaageUK 19 January, 2016 @ 14:03
19.1

Check back in 5 months

19.2

It’s because the SCEE are getting the missing legacy content and the RB 1 export up and running. I say we won’t get the New stuff until February.

SCEE is the absolute WORST when it comes to Rock Band DLC. Missing content. Huge unexplained delays. Ripoff prices.

20

I do not blame you for not showing these prices. We got bunch of indie games from 11€-20€. I love indie games. And I do buy them. Mostly for my Mac because prices on Sonys PS4 and Vita are ridiculous. And I didn’t buy PS4 so I could play Galaxy Invaders over and over again in new forms. This generation for console gaming is just bad.

Hi,Why is A Boy and his Blob is not available in Saudi Arabia :(

CleverTwigboy 20 January, 2016 @ 02:48
21.1

Because SCEE

Francesca Mead 20 January, 2016 @ 14:43
21.2

At this time, A Boy and His Blob will not be releasing in Saudi Arabia, coming under a decision by the publisher.

22

Does anyone know what happened to the single player version of Uncharted 3 that was part of the instant game collection? I can’t seem to find it on the store or my download list.

22.1

Contact the Customer Support immediatly, give them all your data (including WHEN you “purchased” it) and they should give it back to you within a month or so (if you’re lucky)

22.2

Just checked my download list on my phone and it was there alongside the 2d Movies and 3D Movies downloads.

22.3

But can you find it if you search the store (not your download list)?

@Megastar78
Just checked there and no luck :(

THERE IS a vita version, just search it. they didn’t wrote…I’m so sad…are we so obsolete here in Europe?

Awesome, I love the new, simple, concise, quality-over-quantity look of the Store Update! THANKS SONY I LOVE YOU

Why is tharsis £12.99 when it is $13.49 US and $13.49 CAD? That’s £9 or £6.75.

They have also got a discount to drop the price to $11.99… So even cheaper.

Why are we constantly paying over the odds?

25.1

And this is why the prices are no longer displayed.

25.2

Same question. I’m really interested in Tharsis, but the ridiculous pricing differences and the US discount force me to wait, maybe even until it’s actually discounted at a later time. If I wait now to see if anything happens I can wait until something happens.

Hi Francesca, do you know if Tharsis will have any kind of launch discount like in the US? Want to know if I should wait for that

Francesca Mead 19 January, 2016 @ 16:01
26.1

There are currently no plans for a launch discount for the EU.

26.2

#EUcashcows

26.3

Then there are currently no plans to buy it.

27

Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty for the Vita should be cross-buy with the existing PS4/PS3 version, but it’s not currently showing as such. Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon

27.1

I was able to “purchase” it for free because I already own New ‘n’ Tasty on PS4, so I believe.

Francesca Mead 20 January, 2016 @ 16:18
27.2

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty for Vita should appear as ‘free’ on the Store for those who already own it for PS3/PS4. It is displayed as a separate product, but should still be free to those who own the other versions of the game.

I hate to complain but I have to agree with those doing it about this new no prices listed in the Store updates and sales blog posts policy. I use this blog as my main source on information on new releases and sales. Pricing is a vital information for me to decide whether something is worth to be gotten or not. Seeing that valuable part of the information go will surely have a negative impact in both, the sales and the activity in this Blog.

I’m aware of the difficulties of having to deal with so many regional markets but arranging a list with no pictures and no pricing for the items is not what we are used to, and it’s not what we expect from an official channel like this that, supposedly, would want to make their products as attractive to the costumers as possible.

If it’s a matter of time, please, delay the blog post until all the necessary info to show your products as they should is ready to go. Personally, I’d rather see the complete blog posts some hours later than -sorry i...

What has been decided is counterproductive and definitely a step in the wrong way. I’m sure there’s a lot of work behind these blog posts but decisions like this make no good to them and to the official blog as a whole.

Hope you guys reconsider it, Francesca.

28.1

If SCE people think we will check every link to see the prices, they will have a sad surprise, I will only check the games most anticipated, so I foresee I will miss some deals that, given the proper visibility, maybe I would buy…

That’s some kind of measure taken from lazyness or short manpower… but it´s definitively a step back on the blog’s quality…

think about it

Actually I couldn’t have said this any better myself. The prices are a main part of this blog. To no longer include them would definitely dissuade me from coming back here too much anymore. Not in a spitting dummy out of the pram way, just literally I don’t see the need if I can’t see the prices. It’s a very confusing and backwards step to say the least.

Well the blog was pretty helpful in the past but looks like those days might be over.

Check out psprices.com instead. Faster, more accurate and it actually works and is on time.

Shame on you SCEE

29.1

thanks for the tip, it really is more convenient.

– Store update published with no prices listed, people are encouraged to check the store instead
– everyone opens multiple tabs to check the prices of various things they’re interested in
– store collapses under the weight of traffic, displays a ‘loading’ screen interminably

Good job all!

30.1

You forgot this:

– store randomly logs you out

“One more thing: You’ll notice that we’re no longer listing prices in the weekly Store update, and the same will apply to regular sales and discounts posts … Our apologies for the inconvenience.”

Well you could just keep putting the prices on the posts instead of apologising, only costs a few more characters per line. Unless you’re apologising for the lack of transparency in your region pricing for product and content, that would make more sense..

32

May as well pack the blog in now, as above – it used to be really helpful but soon it’ll be just a blank page the rate they’re going. I know EU is harder because of the territories but surely that’s just incentive to hire another member of staff to help the workload? People want information in one place rather than hunting for it.

32.1

Funny part is, Francesca IS supposed to be the “another member of staff to help the workload” after Chris Howe’s apparent departure… sometimes i miss that guy. Sure, his blog posts had severe issues most of the times, but hey…

32.2

She is really picky by just answering the really simple questions though .. and not even with complete info (look at rebel galaxy reply)

32.3

Cheers for the response Fred, I get you guys are in a tight corner at times. I’m just fond of how useful the blog posts used to be :) Hopeful you’re remedies pay off! :D

Blog is useless without the prices. Add them back and stop crapping on SCEE customers. The US doesn’t have to deal with this poor treatment and that blog is really useful for updates and sales.

34.1

All new games, all DLC, all price, every tuesday morning (before PS Blog) here : http://www.community-mag.com/playstation-store-mise-a-jour-du-19-janvier-2016/

Next week’s blog:

Hey, some new games are out this week! We don’t know their names or the exact dates, but keep checking the store! Maybe there will be sales too, who knows!

See you next week!

35.1

I had exactlyvthe same thought and the great thing is they can use the same post every week and thus cut down on work.

35.2

That got a smile out of me _b

Hey is there any word on the mirrors edge theme coming to europe? specifically the UK/IRE store

37

Will Earth Defense Force on the 12th of February come to the PSN and/or Retailers ? (German Store)

Or perhaps they are not listing the prices so we don’t know when we are being overcharged ‘by accident’ so then we don’t ask for refunds and Sony can con us out of more money without us knowing. A spot of transparency Sony would be nice for once

warensembler83 19 January, 2016 @ 14:26

Do you guys plan on letting us change the country on our accounts? I started my PSN account on my home country, and I’ve been living in a different one for a few years now. It’s usually OK, but I always have trouble with TV apps and so. I can download my home country apps, but of course they don’t work; however, I can’t download the apps from my current country. Yeah, I know your advice is starting a new account, but I don’t want to lose the digital games I had on my account, the username or the hassle of having to add all our friends again. I’m pretty sure there’s a reason not to go free for all on this, but I have all the documents you want proving I’ve moved for real…

39.1

You could use a second account just to download the tv apps and your current one to carry on playing games (unless your on vita).

warensembler83 19 January, 2016 @ 15:08
39.2

Yeah, it’s what I usually do, but they should change this policy (even MS have done it). Thanks for your answer, though :)

Sorry, but where’s Towerfall for PSVita? It’s already mid January and the game is still missing in Europe.

Francesca Mead 19 January, 2016 @ 16:04
41.1

I don’t have any news about this currently – we will let you know as soon as the developer has submitted the game and we have a release date pinned down.

This company has reached a very inconceivable level of laziness.

Any idea when Digimon: Cyber Sleuth will be available to pre-order on the PS Store?

43.1

Pretty safe bet it’ll be never. With the rate SCEE releases games you’ll be lucky to see a digital version at all.

I3loodthirsty 19 January, 2016 @ 14:37
44

Give it time and i wouldn’t be surprised to see the store update post replaced with a post that just says “check the store if you want to know what’s new,what more do you want from us.love scee xoxo”

Another problem is that there is not a properly working store where we can check for prices and info. The layout and organizations are a complete mess.

45

Sony really are getting complacent in the EU..

45.1

Yep… I think I will probably give up on console gaming before this generation is out.

Similar to some other reports, I cannot see full version of FEZ on my download list. It was available over PS+ and now only Trial version is marked as purchased. Why is that?

47

I’m not even excited by new blog posts anymore. It’s really gone downhill both in quality and service.

– no price listing
– not even a picture

This makes it harder for me to care about new games I may have never heard of. Unless, of course, the pricing differences between each region is such a joke, you guys would rather people ignore them completely.

FaustoesSpartan 19 January, 2016 @ 15:11

One more thing: As you noticed we are lazy as hell, and we don’t bother ourself with sale blog posts or listing prices in the weekly Store update. For any information we ask that you click ot any other website. Our apologies for the inconvenience, but we don’t care about you.

You know what am making a US account ,am sick of being the embarrassed child/PSNeu .In fact that should be your header “PSNeu” .

The Vita version of Croixleur Sigma is currently unavailable in all regions (not just EU). We will update if there are any changes.

50.2

Thanks for the Info Francesca, hope It didn’t come off as too ‘complainy’.
Was just curious to see If anyone had some Info I couldn’t find about It’s release.
