What’s going on with Crypt of the NecroDancer? It’s not out in certain areas, and their official Facebook said they’re working with you to fix it. Been going on for a week now and still no news.

Also, why was UnEpic removed from the store after just 1 day?

    If I had to guess it is once again issue of translation of metadata. SCEE requires publishers to translate metadata of each product to all languages.

    If your shop has X language than publisher needs to give SCEE metadata in that X language.

    So try asking them if they don’t need help with translating metadata, you probably can translate it on your own because that’s just few short line of text.

    Francesca Mead 9 February, 2016 @ 2:22 pm    

    Crypt of the Necrodancer is still pending release for some territories, and it’s the same for UnEpic.

     

    If UnEpic is still pending, how come it was released here for a day then pulled again? That really doesn’t make much sense.

     
    Luizelgespuizel 9 February, 2016 @ 4:10 pm    

    SCEE als incompetent as ever. Every week problems.

 

Can’t find Dying Light The Following DLC in store?

     

    Its not out yet.
    12th February: All other regions

     

    Clearly says in the post ๐Ÿ™‚

    9th February: Poland
    10th February: Australia, India, New Zeland

    9th February Releases

    Dying Light

    The Following

     
    Liam_Croft 9 February, 2016 @ 2:26 pm    

    You see this is what confuses me.

    The Enhanced Edition released Friday, but I want to know the release of the individual piece of DLC, The Following. There’s absolutely no reason why we should be waiting until Friday to play the DLC itself if we already own the game.

     

    The Enhanced Edition (Game + Season Pass Bundle) will be out on different days. The DLC and the Enhanced Update itself will be out today in all regions.

     

    For anyone still confused about the Dying light situation… They’ve handled it pretty messily but this should help clear things up THE FOLLOWING RELEASE SCHEDULE: https://mobile.twitter.com/DyingLightGame/status/697019074329624580/photo/1

    The enhanced edition release: https://mobile.twitter.com/DyingLightGame/status/694520770161020928

     

    this whole releasedate mambojambo is just an incompetent mess. why the heck cant the SeasonPass Version of the DLC not be out for everyone at the same time?! its just stupid. and Techland is not really making it easy to understand when which version will be released where. Of course they only really talk about the Enhanced Edition in hopes that some users are stupid enough to buy that thing on top of the full game they already have by calling it “Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition” which is COMPLETELY misleading title cause it is “Dying Light Enhanced Edition” which “only” INCLUDES the DLC and is not an enhanced version of the DLC.
    I hate techland for crap like this…..

 
pleyland85 9 February, 2016 @ 2:05 pm   3

How much will EDF 4.1 cost?

 
R1ck8r00ke 9 February, 2016 @ 2:06 pm   4

Can’t see Firewatch bundle on the store yet? What date is Dying Light : The Following out then? Your blog post above is confusing….?

     

    It’s really not:

    9th February: Poland
    10th February: Australia, India, New Zeland
    11th February: Benelux
    12th February: All other regions

     
    Bovrillor 9 February, 2016 @ 2:16 pm    

    It kind of is.

    The full package ‘Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition’ has staggered release dates

    However the DLC ‘The Following’ is out today (the 9th) which is 3 days earlier.

    So if you have the game already, you can start ‘The Following’ earlier

    Francesca Mead 9 February, 2016 @ 2:24 pm    

    Firewatch will be releasing at 6pm GMT tonight to coincide with the proposed 10am PST release time.

    For Dying Light, it made more sense to place the release dates separately at the bottom of the article due to the differences between territories.

     
    Liam_Croft 9 February, 2016 @ 2:30 pm    

    You’re still not making sense PlayStation.

    Does the INDIVIDUAL piece of DLC, The Following, release today or Friday?

    NOT the Enhanced Edition.

    Francesca Mead 9 February, 2016 @ 4:06 pm    

    The release dates count for both the Enhanced Edition and the standalone DLC – they will both release on the 12th of February for the rest of Europe.

     
    Liam_Croft 9 February, 2016 @ 4:19 pm    

    What an utter joke. There’s literally no reason for the standalone piece of DLC to be releasing on Friday instead of today.

     

    I agree its odd and the differentiation of the DLC and standalone DLC in terms of release dates doesnt add up. I do have the game, yet I still cant find the DLC, neither on the store, nor in the game.

 

Care to post updates on Gone Home, Towerfall Vita and Crypt of the Necrodancer? Thanks!

ferenzzz1971 9 February, 2016 @ 2:08 pm   6

What is going on with the game INSIDE by Playdead Studios, some updates about it please?

     
    Harrisown 9 February, 2016 @ 2:14 pm    

    Is that the guys who did Limbo? Isn’t that game a xbox exclusive?

     

    It’s an Xbox one exclusive for about 6 months to a year. It’s not out on Xbox yet is it?

 

Are we getting SFV avatars?

     
    cognac-vsop 9 February, 2016 @ 2:14 pm    

    US store has all the cool avatars not sure why they don’t release them for EU.

     

    Yap, they dont have all the characters yet, hoping we get all next week when the game releases.

 

Hi Francesca/Fred.

Kings Quest episode 2 is still trying to charge even though we were supposed to get a full game in December. Or do we not get full games now

Can you fix/ acknowledge this…

     

    Only Episode 1 was free.

    Francesca Mead 9 February, 2016 @ 2:25 pm    

    If you mean PlayStation Plus, only Episode 1 was available in December as part of the monthly games collection, not the full game.

     
    The_Kiriyama 9 February, 2016 @ 2:35 pm    

    Yes, we didn’t get the full game.

     

    It is one hell of an episode. There is a lot of gameplay in there so feels as long as your typical plus offering. It’s made me need to get the whole package.

     

    I believe that was the entire point. Give Plus users Ep1 of an under-selling game for “free” on the hopes they’ll buy the next episodes instead.

     

    We are supposed to get 6 full games though. Where was the 6th in December?

     

    That’s quite an admission from Francesca. WE DID NOT GET THE FULL GAME WE PAY OUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR.

 
cognac-vsop 9 February, 2016 @ 2:14 pm   9

Am loving Unravel!!

 

Hmmm. Wait till the 12th and pay ยฃ59.99 for the complete Dying Light Enhanced Edition (at a guess) or get the disc for ยฃ32.85 from SimplyGames this Friday. It’s a tough choice…i’ll really have to think about that one.

     
    Fordervelse 11 February, 2016 @ 7:37 am    

    Or download the stand-alone DLC and all features of the Enhanced Edition for free if you have the Season Pass. That would be the sensible choice.

 
cognac-vsop 9 February, 2016 @ 2:17 pm   11

so today is the day the voting for next month’s PS+ starts yeah?? vote for Broforce!

@Francesca
If I’m not mistaken you made one mistake Arslan:The Warriors of Legend won’t be released on Vita.

 

No mention of a 10% Ps plus discount for Firewatch? The devs have been stating it will have one for the past week on Twitter…

     
    StevoPirate 9 February, 2016 @ 3:15 pm    

    $20/$18 in US with the PS+ discount. Why do I get the feeling that we’ll be paying over the odds in comparison?

     

    Well it’s ยฃ15 without discount, so ยฃ13.50 with… Although both of those values came from Twitter which may not resemble what Sony do…

 
Dem-ON555 9 February, 2016 @ 2:20 pm   14

Can’t find FIREWATCH anywhere in the store (all other games are there). I really wanna play it.

 
Specky_Geek 9 February, 2016 @ 2:21 pm   15

Were are the prices ? Please this blog page is mess , this is not #4ThePlayers

     

    They stopped listing prices, because the EU blog covers too many countries with different currencies.
    Just click the games Image to be taken to the store and find out the price that way.
    Of course, this doesn’t help with games that aren’t out yet, you have to guess their price.

 

No firewatch on the store yet…

 

Cool, I didn’t know Arslan was coming to Vita!
What’s that?
It Isn’t?
Oh…thanks for getting my hopes up for a non-existent product…

Also, Earth Defense Force 2 for Vita, Is that out this Friday?

     

    There should also be Dreii releasing on the Vita this week, Earth Defence Force 2 is indeed scheduled to release this Friday

 

According with the info above it seems that the Dying Light content is been treated as two different products. Dying Light the Following Enhanced Edition aka the full package will be released on different days as stated.
The Following expansion which is under PS4 DLCs will be released today.
I checked Dying Light site and came across the same info.

 
Andre-Veelt 9 February, 2016 @ 2:26 pm   19

Firewatch is not in the Store!

 

Dying Light release dates are still a bit confusing. Is the following DLC coming today to everyone in Europe and the full version (Game + DLC) is coming on 12th of February or do we have to wait for the DLC also until friday?

     
    Galli7790 9 February, 2016 @ 3:02 pm    

    Not out for Europeans till Friday, which I think is a bit unfair. I was looking forward to playing today.

 

The free Japanese Voice pack for Megadimention Neptunia VII – scheduled to be available on release date – is not mentioned in this post. It will be available, right?

Definitely getting Neptunia

 

ATTENTION PLEASE! Has anyone from the UK already received the new Dying Light update version 1.09? I keep on getting the old one which is 1.07. Thanks

 

Nice heads up on the GTA Trilogy. Don’t I feel silly buying Vice City and San Andreas when they first released.

 

Hi, do you have an anticipated date for the Rock Band 4 Export pack (RB1) ? I believe it’s out in all other regions/platforms

funkpower 9 February, 2016 @ 2:42 pm   26

Stupid website!! How much is the god dam following??? I’ve finally lost it with this blog.

 

“An embarrassment of riches. Where you begin?”
How about updating the actual store..??

 
CoolRichy007UK 9 February, 2016 @ 2:46 pm   28

FOR THE LAST TIME PEOPLE dying light enhanced aka update today the FOLLOWING is out friday 12th feb aka all other regions look on dying light twitter it says other regions aka the following out friday 12th uk and europe now you all know its not confusing when it was posted on dying lights twitter account when the uk gets it lol

     
    Liam_Croft 9 February, 2016 @ 2:57 pm    

    And yet on this very post it states:

    9th February Releases

    Dying Light

    The Following

     

    The Following DLC (thats part of the season pass and works on the original Dying Light) is live today. Says so in the Blog Post.

     
    NorthernFusion 9 February, 2016 @ 3:03 pm    

    Please consider commas or full stops next time. Hell, consider both.

     

    And yet on this very post it states:

    *Release details below

    *Dying Light: The Following โ€“ Enhanced Edit
    โ– 9th February: Poland
    โ– 10th February: Australia, India, New Zeland
    โ– 11th February: Benelux
    โ– 12th February: All other regions

     
    Liam_Croft 9 February, 2016 @ 3:12 pm    

    You don’t understand Lathiel-.

    That part is talking about the release of the Enhanced Edition that includes the full game and The Following. We want to know the release date of the individual DLC The Following which you can play while owning the original game.

     

    Whatever would the world do without Coolwhatever’s helpful posts.

     
    Galli7790 9 February, 2016 @ 3:18 pm    

    I looked up this release several times in the last week or so and not once did I see it say that it was the 12th from Europe. I really wasn’t clear at all!

 

Looking forward to Firewatch!

On a side note, are you sure Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is releasing on the PlayStation Vita?

I’ve never seen a Vita release mentioned by anyone before – and the site I write for (thevitalounge.net) has never covered it. If so, that’s interesting!

 
dark_angel69 9 February, 2016 @ 3:10 pm   30

I thought I read something a while back about getting Unravel trial that goes for two hours and then continue the story when we buy the game. Do we not get that or was that just an EA Access thing? :S

 
supersmith2500 9 February, 2016 @ 3:21 pm   31

Where’s EDF2 for Vita? Is it not out the same time as EDF 4.1?

     

    It is as I have both on pre-order at shopto and both are cheap…probably a lot cheaper than on PSN

 
colmshan1990 9 February, 2016 @ 3:23 pm   32

I know it’s not out until 6pm, but what’s the difference between Firewatch and the Firewatch Bundle?

Also, any word on Towerfall Vita? The PS4 game is a genuine highlight of that console’s library, I’m really looking forward to taking it everywhere I go.

     
    pleyland85 9 February, 2016 @ 3:31 pm    

    Pretty sure the bundle just gives you a theme on PS4

     
    JoostFormula1 9 February, 2016 @ 4:13 pm    

    Yeah, I haven’t heard of a Bundle Edition before this. On the Firewatch website, they say you can buy a bundle with the soundtrack.
    Some Googling showed me a bundle with Theme and Soundtrack. So. Let’s see.

 
grimlock1001 9 February, 2016 @ 3:25 pm   33

Where the heck is firewatch? Im in london and have been checking for it since midnight.

 
noodleboy1972 9 February, 2016 @ 3:36 pm   34

So still none the wiser about The Following DLC.Just the DLC,not the enhanced version.Is it today or Friday?

 

2 more hours till firewatch

 
moneill83 9 February, 2016 @ 3:50 pm   36

“An embarrassment of riches”? Don’t you mean “embarrassment of digital prices”? Because the EU customers are having to pay some extortionate prices to buy online in the store when physical copies are much cheaper.

Speaking of extortion, where’s the discount for those of us who bought Yakuza 5 when it was first released, you overcharged us for the game by hiking the price up beyond what Sega stated it would be on release, yet no word of recompense for us, the consumers keeping you shower in your jobs. And you wonder why so many people have so many complaints in here?

     

    Physical copies will always be cheaper than digital while physical copies are still sold on the high street.

    The publishers will always want to have their games/consoles given shelf space so they can attract consumers in-store, and the stores will not give you shelf space if your product is cheaper digitally as nobody is going to travel to the store to buy a game that is cheaper digitally.

    It is the supermarkets and stores that drive the price of digital titles up, the sooner consoles go ‘fully digital’ the sooner we will see cheaper digital titles. It’s sad to say, but while consoles and games take up shelf space in a shop, we will always see physical copies cheaper than their digital counterparts.

     

    That isn’t entirely true as there are people who would pay more for the physical item. I prefer a tangible item to have in my hand then onto my shelf or to resell. Digital has no value for me even though we are suppose to be able to sell on digital material according to EU law. Not every game that I buy do I want to keep as I can resell it and then buy another game or games.

 
ArchangelMike 9 February, 2016 @ 3:54 pm   37

FireWatch is not showing on the Store?!?!? Is it definately out today?

 
SuperJay182 9 February, 2016 @ 4:03 pm   38

Found this regarding The Following:

‘The DLC officially launches on February 9th for North America, South America and some parts of Europe including Poland, France, Belgium and Holland.

Brits unfortunately have to wait until February 12 unless they download the add-on via Steam, but spare a thought for gamers in Japan who won’t be able to get their hands on it until April 21!’

Bizarre that we have to wait but whatever, a blog post from the Dev’s would of been handy this past week and saved a lot of fuss (I’d of thought they’d of been interested?).

So – no idea why under the DLC section they have the 9th, wrong information it seems.

    Francesca Mead 9 February, 2016 @ 4:09 pm    

    The standalone DLC will initially release on the 9th for Poland, and since this is the EU blog, we listed it there. After the other staggered release dates, it will be released for the rest of Europe (including the UK) on the 12th.

     
    ArchangelMike 9 February, 2016 @ 4:10 pm    

    Did you find any info on FireWatch? It’s seems theres a mix up about the release date as well, since it’s not showing up on the UK PSN store.

    Francesca Mead 9 February, 2016 @ 4:11 pm    

    As mentioned above by myself and others, Firewatch will release at 6pm GMT today.

     
    SuperJay182 9 February, 2016 @ 4:19 pm    

    That’s fair enough, thanks for the response.

    Seems it was just that DLC listing that was throwing a lot of people (and I’d heard the 9th leading up to today but that’s the Devs doing) but now they’ve seen the DLC is just for Poland, might cause less confusion ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheers ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Jesus it’s getting fair bad when DLC is being released in different locations on different days. Why not release it today for all countries seeing as dying light has been advertising the following on the game as 9th of february. Swear it was only just finished and no date had been set for 3 months!!

 
dio_tsirigotis 9 February, 2016 @ 4:24 pm   40

I’m so glad Adventures of Pip is finally out. Been waiting to play since the PAX reveal. So giddy!

 

I forgot to respond last week, so I’d just like to say thanks to Francesca for clarifying the Harvest Moon issue. Now I can stop posting about it every week!

 
HeavenlyGuy 9 February, 2016 @ 4:43 pm   42

I’m patiently waiting for Crypt of the NecroDancer to be released, and I understand that they are working hard to translate descriptions in the respective languages. But what I don’t understand is why they need to translate the store description in countries like Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, when everything in the store is completely in English in those countries??!

     

    Yeah, they need to change that. It doesn’t make any sense. Or they should at least let the developers know this. My sister translated the story for Actual Sunlight (and a lot of other people did after the developer asked for it on twitter and on here).

    I agree that it should be mentioned in what language the game is in, but the store itself if it really needs to be translated (maybe it is so by law), Sony can maybe help the developers with this. Most of them (especially the small indie teams) don’t know this and they miss out on a lot of sales because of this.

     
    OldHorn666 9 February, 2016 @ 4:58 pm    

    So there’s really some living people translating store descriptions? I live in Finland, and every description translated into Finnish looks like something out of Google Translate. Just awful. Just let it be English.

     

    It was purely because I saw the message here and my sister is a professional translator from English to Dutch so I asked her. Otherwise the game would not have come out in Belgium (and I wanted to play it).
    But I agree, most of it looks translated with google translate.

    I don’t know if it is the devs who do this themselves or how that works.

     
    HeavenlyGuy 10 February, 2016 @ 10:17 am    

    Nvm, I just realized that even though the Swedish PS Store is all in English on the PS4 system, if you go into the local PS store page on this site it will be in Swedish. Oh well.

 

Sorry Francesca, not sure I get what you are saying.

Do you mind telling me exactly when both Firewatch and Dying Light: The Following release?

Not sure I get the message ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Really looking forward to playing the 2 Bruno Mars tracks in Rock Band 4 when I get home from work this evening!

Manga_Kid_UK 9 February, 2016 @ 4:53 pm   46

Fire watch is out on USA store where is it for UK/EU please reply.

 
ian280291 9 February, 2016 @ 5:00 pm   47

Hi guys, can I just suggest that that you put release times in the article as I’ve been refreshing the store all day waiting for Firewatch and it won’t be available till 6pm. The reason I was refreshing the store all day is because Unravel and Assassins Creed are already out so I was like “where the hell is Firewatch?”.

Just a suggestion, as it really would help us customers.

     

    That is a very good idea. As always we must wait for the Americans to get it before us… Hopefully it will be 6pm tonight

     
    CoolRichy007UK 9 February, 2016 @ 5:12 pm    

    If Firewatch int added to ps store 6pm i suggest everyone posts we want Firewatch now now NOW!!!

 
CoolRichy007UK 9 February, 2016 @ 5:10 pm   48

1 hour till Firewatch gets added so no delays no this that etc etc bla blaa bla 6pm Firewatch gets added to ps store so hurry up and add it already dont wait till 6pm add it now we want Firewatch nowwwwwwwwwwwww

 
ian280291 9 February, 2016 @ 5:12 pm   49

Thanks dude I thought it was a great idea too, maybe I should be a editor for this site if they have any vacancies going…
We aren’t waiting for the americans to get it before us. We are getting it at the same time if all goes well.

 

Firewatch still not out yet. 30 mins past due. How about an update?
