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.

  • So do we get anything with the Infamous Festival of Blood pre-order? Regardless I’ll still be purchasing the game, but I just don’t understand.

  • I think the coolest thing I downloaded this week was the GT5 update. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough. :) I need help spending my $60 this month for my $10 next month. heheh

  • Will probably jump on Sideway, but the rest of this weeks sales are awful.

  • Got Sideway and pre-ordered Infamous:FOB(also got the Nisa avatar). Hopefully more good stuff next week(which means PAYDAY:The Heist Sony??????).

  • @ 100 (DarkAkatosh)

    You got a set of 5 avatars as a bonus when you purchased Code Veronica X during the 50% PS+ discount, are you sure that article wasn’t referring to those?

  • not a bad update but then nothing can beat last weeks epicness

  • Sideway is really good.

  • inFAMOUS 2 THEME IS AWESOME!

  • Dull week for psp/ps3 and PS+, but i think because for PS+ its one of those off weeks since its only suppose to update twice a month. So aside from the that there really isnt any excuse for ps3/psp updates too be this dull. Was hoping for some classic psp games, but Sony has never taken the psp serious, so i doubt theyll start any time soon.

    Looks like nothing for me this week.

  • Do u need infamous 2 the game to get festival of blood?sombody plz answer

  • no free games this week????????WTF that sucks

  • bring heavonly sword and valkryia chronicles to the store

  • @ 110
    no you don’t need inFAMOUS 2 game, to play the DLC

  • @110
    No Festival of Blood is A Standalone game

  • damn that inFAMOUS Festival of Blood is dlc i was given the impression that it was a stand alone download game

  • @Grace Chen

    While you edit the blog post to remove some stuff that was supposed to be free this week for PS+, can you edit that inFAMOUS Festival of Blood is STANDALONE cause it`s confusing a lot of people as you can see..

  • Hoo boy PS2 classics…

    You might as well take my wallet now.

  • poopie update. just rehashed.

  • DYNASTY WARRIORS 7 DLC works for me. Thumbs up!

    ****PROUD PS+ MEMBER****

  • weak plus update this week.

  • Hey Morgan Haro,

    Does adding money to our wallets count towards the “spend $60 get $10 back” deal?

  • I want to pre-order that inFamous DLC but I just can’t trust Sony after they delayed PayDay: The Heist at the last freaking minute. What assurances do we have that you will follow through with the transaction this time?

  • What happened to the plus exclusive halloween avatars we were promised to get on oct. 11, I was looking forward to them.

  • Hey Morgan a question regarding a reply you made when asked about the PS2 Classics you said that:

    “the intro titles will be staying for the month”

    Does this mean that the PS2 classics currently up are coming down at the end of the month or was it simply worded in a way that let me interpet it as such? I’m guessing it’s the wording since it would be odd to take an item out of the store, but I figured it woud be best to be sure, in case a game I want dissapears.

    Thank you for your time and replys on this post.

    • yeah no worries, they are staying in the Store and will be then getting their own PS2 Classics categories with more titles on the way to fill out the category consistently going forward after this month.

  • Video unlimited app doesn’t work for US citizens living abroad.

  • Hi Morgan , Do you have any idea about the hard drive space of Festival of Blood ?

  • OMG! My kids (and myself mainly XD.) are devastated!!! No Halloween Avatars!! Hopefully soon! Already sporting my awesomely epic Halloween dynamic theme we got free last year!

    Hurry with them Avatars!! Xd.
    Thanks!

  • i will try sideway new york demo but probably not buy it unless it is really fun , no more first day buys for a game that will go on sale soon wuth the exception of established franchises and/or games that are made by companies that have in the past made awesome games that are worth full price to not wait for them , like pixeljunk games or journey

  • Kinda weak update (After the longest great update combo PSN had I guess). My pocket say thx XD…

    Hmm… might take some demos there =)
    N hey bring more Classics there =D I’m anxious fore more PS2, n there r some PSX we still need.

  • Any word on when the Full Game Trial issue will be fixed? Had to buy RE5 3 times before it actually recognized I purchased it. Luckily the customer support operator was able to get me a full refund promptly. Hoping it counts for the whole spend $60 get $10 back promo.

  • IMPORTANT SONY TECH DEPARTMENT-

    The download fpr Soy Bomb – Honest Bob And The Factory To Dealer Incentives is broken. I bought it, but nothing i can do will let it download. Everything else downloads fine, except for Soy Bomb. I keep getting an 80710092 error message.

    Please fix it :(

  • Glad to have the NISA avatar finally. Now I just patiently await Disgaea dlc in November, and the eventual release of Final Fantasy VI.

  • i have 2 very important question

    1- if i buy 120$ of content on the PS store this month do i get 20$ back next month?

    2- i want to buy the COD MW3 Elite pass “pre-order”, but i dont know if its the same pack for french canadians and the english language. because i know infinity ward dont put the french and english on the same game disc & I pre-order the “french” version at ebgame of MW3 so i really need to know if this Elite pass is good for me. or will i waste 50$?

    thanks in advance

  • @134 Cyb3rfr3ak: Answer to number 1 is no. Morgan already answered this in the comments on an earlier post. Spend $60, get $10 back. That’s it. Spend $120, still get $10 back.

  • Any chance of adding Festival of Blood avatars to the PSN Store? I’d much rather have a Vampire Cole avatar than a regular Infamous 2 Cole avatar. In fact, I’d like to have an Infamous 1 avatar even more than both of them.

  • thanks again Kirkpad ^^

  • I’m glad we can now pre-order inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood, but other than that there isn’t much content that interests me this week. I’ve been busy playing Uncharted 3 MP and Crysis. I haven’t had much time for Resistance 3 MP I’m afraid, so the “Survival” Pack will have to wait.

  • Hell yes! I pre-ordered Infamous 2: Festival of Blood! Can’t wait for it. The theme looks great. I hope against hope a Infamous 3 is possible.

  • Pretty terrible update this week, especially for Plus.

  • Oh, I see Morgan. Thanks for the reply.

  • To my dearest Sony.
    Please add a University of South Carolina Dynamic theme. I will be your bestest friend ever

  • Wow… I’m shocked. This is the first store update in forever… where there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING of value to me. Literally… not a single game, demo, avatar or PS+ item that I want (Skipping I2’s addon for now as I havent finished I2).

  • Playstation really dropped the ball on marketing that new inFAMOUS2 game. People STILL (read above) believe the game is an add-on and not an actual stand-alone PSN game.

  • How long is the PS+ discount on inFAMOUS Festival of Blood?

  • Wait… will the new ps2 classics be exclusive to this month only?

    Sorry for the lame question, I was thinking about buying it sometime next month.

  • Will there be non exclusive ps2 classics

  • meeh ._______.

  • @141 I second that actually I asked for it about a month ago so I wouldn’t be holding my breath on it but away Go Cocks better without Garcia

  • Yes! DJ Max 3 for half off! That’s what I’ve been waiting for since it first came out. Thanks Sony!
