PlayStation Store Update

Hi Everyone –
It’s a special day for movie lovers as the Video Unlimited – preview app is now available to everyone! Check out this new and improved way to browse, watch, and discover movies and TV shows on the network.

This week sees the release of an amazing PSN exclusive: Sideway: New York. Part of Only On PSN and featuring some of the most breath-taking artwork to hit the 2D world; Sideway: New York follows Nox, a graffiti artist in NY, who’s found himself sucked into the world where he lives alongside his own art. With a fantastic use of color and eye-popping HD visuals, you won’t want to miss this PSN exclusive. PlayStation Plus subscribers can also get this title 20% off as part of Only On PSN.

While we’re on the topic of Only On PSN, don’t forget that as part of the celebration of PSN exclusive titles hitting throughout this month, if you spend $60 or more in the PlayStation Store through the month of October, you’ll get $10 back in November. For more details, visit the Only On PSN page to check out the other upcoming titles that are coming soon to PSN.

Most Resistance 3 players may have already finished the amazing single player campaign, but are still finding a lot to love in multiplayer. The new Survival Pack DLC allows you to take back a piece of your homeland from the Chimera – or conquer new territory as a Chimeran soldier – with the Invasion multiplayer game mode, along with four new character skins and an exclusive static theme.

PlayStation Plus awesomeness continues the scheduled October content with new discounts and brand new themes as well. Classic SNK titles are getting new releases with versions on both PS3 and PSP in the form of Metal Slug 2 and The King of Fighters ’96. Subscribers can get these new releases 20% off in the Store, starting today. You’ll also notice some new Themes and Avatars, with some exclusive to PlayStation Plus.

  • Ill probably be getting Sideway: New York. Also put the Michael video on the store.

  • More ‘PS2’ classics on PSN please;)

  • And once again some stuff promised to be free in the PS+ post and they`re not, even some are missing…

  • Lovely! $0.25 shy from buying Sideway. FML.

  • whats the point to pre order infamous? will it be the same price for ps+ when its released?

    • We’re going to fix the description in the Store, but it should state that you get a free theme for Festival of Blood when you pre-order.

  • well nevermind that question >_< i see its dlc…kinda wish it wasnt :p

  • Great update for me. Bought Sideway, pre-ordered Festival of Blood & that spooky dynamic theme was an unexpected & happy surprise. Picked up a couple other free dynamic themes & the Cursed Crusade demo. Good thing I bought Rochard last night since the Plus discount expired.

    Will be buying the DA2 DLC & items pack when my first batch of downloads completes, :-)

  • Not bad. Solid update this week on PSN

  • Anyone else seen the PlayStation 2 Classics section? Im likin that alot :D

  • No ratchet and clank all for one demo yet? Oh well playing crack in time again anyways.

  • Just to clear up issues about Infamous: Festival of Blood; according to Sucker Punch’s post from their blog back in August, “Previous inFamous games will not be needed to play this DLC.”

  • Is the buy $60 get $10 offer good for one time only? Also is Borderlands Digital ($19.99) the complete edition?

    • Buy $60 get $10 is for purchases through the month of Oct. Buy $60 of content through October, and you’ll get $10 back in Nov.

  • Sideway looks so amazing. Looking forward to a little side scrolling action mixed in with my doubling back to play LBP 2 and playing through the Uncharted series in preparation for number 3. Good update.

    • awesome playlist you have there. I’m tackling Eufloria, Dark Souls, and Ico at the moment. Probably will mix in Sideway NY tonight. TOO MANY GAMEZ

  • They announced awhile ago that Infamous FOB would be $15, so it’s a great surprise to see it $9.99 & 7.99. Thanks so much

  • the Infamous 2 pre-order was nice, but I couldn’t see anything else I wanted

  • Where are the free Halloween avatars???

  • Any word on DCUO?

  • @ IronFalcon5

    I’m right there with you. I didn’t even look to see if they were in this update before I posted. lol I’m going to comment every week until we get them. It’s all I can do. I just don’t understand why they haven’t put all the MLB avatars up. I got a reply last week but the guy told me he knew nothing about it.

  • What’s the point of pre-ordering Infamous Festival of Blood besides getting a free theme? Does it cost less than buying it when it comes out? Or do you get early access to it? Anything?

    • The theme is the main thing. For those who super want to support, you snag the theme; but we can certainly look at ways to continue to incentive people to show their early support through pre-ordering.

  • Relax folks, check the post again. It’s been updated. It now matches the store content.

    btw, they’re just a few avatars… not like the stole our cookies or anything :P

  • So they just removed the Halloween Avatars from the update list.
    Not cool, Sony

  • this is like the 3rd or 4th time you have posted a store update listing things for PS+ that aren’t actually there. you need to stop doing that. seriously. it’s annoying.

  • I WANT MORE PS2 GAMES!!!! …………………. please

  • edit: you REMOVED the halloween avatars!?!?!?

    wth sony, I want my blasted avatars.

    I don’t think I will be resubscribing to PS+….

  • I live in Australia and i want to know why i can’t get Sonic CD here. i heard an announcement that Sonic Cd was coming on to the PSN and i looked everywhere and i can’t find it and I want to know why there is no Sonic avatars new or old.

  • Aww I thought the theme for infamous 2 festival of blood would be separate from the pre-order. Do we get something else special besides a dynamic theme?

  • lol, the free halloween avatars were removed

  • False Advertising is technically, illegal, but big Companies like Sony can get away with it.
    Good thing I opted out of waivering my rights, in case they pull another stunt like that

  • DUDE WTH IS PAYDAY THE HEIST >:O

  • HAHA that is just like Sony instead of put forth the effort to put the content up they just remove the entire thing from the post.

  • hello can someone please answer me!!!
    how does the pre-order on PSN work ???
    like just just say i pre-ordered the inFAMOUS 2 festival of blood, how do i download it when its released??? and do i have to pay any extra money when its released, or just the $9.99???

  • no payday right

  • Great job SONY /sarcasm

  • why a pre order for festival of blood? Aint getting burned again. I wont pre order downloadable content. Gonna be another PAY DAY or back to the future. Always late. At least with retail you can get your money back if you want.

  • I want that pumpkin avatar added back. Maybe next week, pumpkin avatar.

  • Thanks for the update! Looking forward to trying a couple of demos.

    Question for Sony and Sucker Punch:

    If you’re making downloadable stand-alone installments for inFamous 2, could you package up the inFamous 2 level creation editor as a downloadable stand-alone? I’m not interested in the main inFamous 2 game, but I’m quite interested in creating my own levels, and playing levels created by other players. This would also have access to all the editor updates that inFamous 2 gets. Thanks for your time!

    • Festival of Blood will come equipped with the entire UGC Creation tools. At $9.99 you get an awesome inFAMOUS adventure and the tools, so it’d be a great place to start your creating.

  • I know one thing is for sure. When Festival of Blood comes out, if it is more then the preorder price of $9.99, I wont get it period…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  • Gonna try the NBA Jam demo and gonna pre-order Festival of Blood to get that Dynamic theme :D

  • Kinda a week update. Buying Sideway and my free PS+ stuff. Other than that….. Nothing, nada, zip.

  • As usual, thanks for not answering our questions. PS Store staff is awesome!

    • We try to answer your questions in due time. Often, I’m in meetings or other obligations when the Store Update hits, but I make it a priority to ensure I review the questions before the day is up. Patience is appreciated, thanks!

  • @kawaiigamr

    Festival of Blood is it’s own game, you don’t have to own inFamous 2 to play it.

  • ARGGGGGHHHH! Still NO FIX On That PATAPON 3 MISSION PACK 1 UpLoad From The 28th Of September?????????????? IT IS THE FIRST DLC THAT HITS NORTH AMERICA TO ENABLE PATAPON 3 PLAYERS TO LEVEL UP THEIR PATAPONS PAST LEVEL 32 TO THE MAX OF LEVEL 40 TO FIND IMPORTANT EQUIPMENT!! WHEN IS IT GOING TO BE FIXED? It Is As If SONY Is “Punishing” Its Patapon 3 Players Who DO NOT “Mod” Their PSP’s And InStall CFW “Cheater Gear”!!! COME ON!! EveryBody That Sticks To The Standard FirmWare From SONY SHOULD Be Able To Play The DLC Missions That Those “HomeBrew” Freaks Can AllWays Put Into Their “Chopped Machines”!!!

    • The World Map DLC is the missing piece that needs to get updated in the Store. Working to get this fixed ASAP, stay tuned, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

  • is inFAMOUS Festival of Blood, a new game or is it an add-on.

  • Someone should have double-checked the NBA Jam promotion background under the New Releases section of PSN.

    I can hardly read any of the item descriptions on my screen with it there.

  • Im still waiting for chrono cross.

  • @86

    How are you not interested in infamous 2 story mode? It’s a fantastic game.

  • If you removed the Halloween avatars it would at least be nice if you could tell us when we could expect them what has been up with you guys dropping the ball lately street smarts now this those are the only things I can recall of but get on your jobs guys the Halloween avatars has been posted to arrive today for the last two weeks how is it you don’t know what’s coming to the store until it is updated?

  • @ ATLRoAcH

    Yeah, I commented for the first time about it last week because I just wanted some answer. It doesn’t make sense for them to not be up yet. But there’s nothing we can do but wait and comment here lol

  • Not a single PS2 classic? Seriously? That’s all I was looking forward to. Please don’t do these the same way you do PS One Classics…….

  • The PS+ post from awhile back said those RE avatars were supposed to be free…

    • Please keep in mind that we do mention in the monthly PS Plus posts that items may change. This may have been one of those items.
