The fan-favourite PS VR game Pixel Ripped is back with a brand new nostalgia-fueled virtual reality game-within-a-game, this time in the year 1995.

Damn I want I expect you to die but that doesn’t appear to be on the list!

Was hoping Trainer VR would be on the list.

Prices not updated on swedish PS Store as usual (always at least one day after…) and most titles seem to be have been googletranslated to swedish from english. Can you (Sony!) please give a swede the job to write the game descriptions ??!! You earn millions, don’t cheap out on the store Sony, it’s the first thing your customers see… ;)

They aren’t on sale until tomorrow it’s running between 9-23 October.

It says in the post: “For a full breakdown of games, please see below – and then be sure to visit the PlayStation Store starting tomorrow.”

Im swedish and I always see the prices on the day the sale start, which in this case is tomorrow.

Ace Banana? DWVR? Weeping Doll?

These and many more from that list are not out in EU.

Did you copy+paste the wrong list?

What are you jibbering about? They’re all on the store.

They aren’t available in my country either. Sony doesn’t actually care about Europe anyway, that much has been made clear with the state of the EU blog, and the way they treat customers as second rank.

4.3

I can see them both on the greek store as well…

I am a bit shocked Firewall Zero Hour is not on either list above considering the untold numbers of Europeans I have played this game online with 🤔 Its popularity in North America is substantial as well.

Im starting to think Beat Saber will never go on sale.

If people are willingly paying full price for it ( which they are), there’s no reason for it to go on sale.

I think Sony’s censorship policies are doing a great deal of harm to the development of VR. Not to mention that because they have exclusive control of the platform it violates the rights of consumers. They want to watch they don’t loose the right of exclusive control? It is obviously anti-competitive and the fact that they are using that control to impose limits on the rights of consumers puts them squarely at odds with the law. At least in Australia.
