PlayStation Store Update

Hi Everyone –
Happy UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Day! It’s not an official holiday (maybe someday), but as many PlayStation 3 fans know, today is the day that one of the biggest releases in gaming hits stores; and you get can even more out of it on PlayStation Network.


Some of you may have already gotten the jump on the Fortune Hunters’ Club (downloadable from the PlayStation Store) which entitles you to the first four multiplayer map packs, as well as the first three multiplayer skin packs. To celebrate the release of Uncharted 3, those 3 multiplayer skins are now available to download! Fortune Hunters’ Club folks are able to grab these skins now for free! If you haven’t purchased Fortune Hunters’ Club, you can still purchase access to it to save over 45% on Uncharted 3 DLC; or if you prefer, you always have the option to purchase the multiplayer skins individually, or in packs.


In PSN Game releases; make sure you check out Hydrophobia Prophecy. This new version of the action-adventure game (with the world’s first fluid dynamics engine for games) offers incredible combat and puzzles. It’s on sale now, but if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’re able to download the full game free, for this month only.

New PlayStation 2 Classics are hitting the Store today as well. Previously housed in the now concluded Only On PSN promotion, from here on, they will be placed in their own category under the Games section of the PlayStation Store. Bloodrayne, Raiden III, and Harvest Moon: Save The Homeland are all available download and experience in their classic form.

Lastly, we kick off November’s PlayStation Plus content with access to a ton of free content including Hydrophobia Prophecy and 4 PSOne Classics from the Crash Bandicoot family. You can also download the latest Qore free and early. Don’t forget, if you’re not a Plus subscriber, purchase a 1 year subscription and you’ll be able to download Jurassic Park: The Game – Full Series (Episodes 1-4) when it releases on 11/15. Read the post for more details.

  • Thanks for another week of great content!

  • “Happy UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Day!”

  • Looks fantastic!

  • How about some Kevin Butler Avatars or some avatars that say LONG.LIVE.PLAY

    Nice Update BTW

  • nice price drops on the digital PS3 titles, I would like to see more of that (and that PSN can keep up to Steam on the sales front). Sadly I blew my weekly game allowance on Uncharted 3, it’s pretty great so far!


  • Nice to see Hyrdophobia and the CB games for free. Too bad Uncharted 3 is here :)

  • Great update and great to see some price changes. Atleast now they are accaptable prices :)

  • Is the PS + renewal offer available in Canada also or is it US only? wouldn’t want to renew and not get Jurassic Park.

  • Uncharted 3 Ready to rock …

  • PS Store updates are early now, huh? Good job PSN team!

  • Huge update!

    But, nothing matters except U3. :-)

  • I downloaded all of the UnCharted 3 DLC Character packs, Doughnut Lazaveric is not included in any of the packs, glitch?, anyone else had this problem?

  • Guess it’s the Naughty Dog Celebration Day. U3 releases and all of the Crash games become free for us Plus members. I hope Jak & Daxter HD Collection isn’t that far away…

  • Hey remember that whole “spend 60 in Oct, get 10 back in Nov” dealie you had going on? When can I expect that 10? I’m pretty sure I spent 70+ last month.

    Also I’m absolutely loving seeing soundtracks available in the store. More of that in the future please! (I’m definitely going to pick up the Uncharted 3 soundtrack). Soundtracks are usually a deciding factor when I pick up special edition. I love me some video game tunes.

  • Where`s the Robots Dynamic ThemeÉ

  • PS3 Legacy: 2
    PS2 Legacy: 3
    PS1 Legacy: 0
    PSP Legacy: 0
    PCE Legacy: 0

    Well at least they’re consistently putting stuff up now. If only it were more evenly spread out. By the way, nice to see a PS2 Classic icon. Now when do we get one for PS1 Classics? *weeds blow by*

    3 new PSN games is solid stuff. Seems like the weeks where we’d get one or none are over (save for the annual January drought…). 1 new PSP game (finally) and 1 new Mini help to round things out. 3 demos is also good. It seems like the average amount of store content has really improved as of late which is cool. I’m seeing some nice discounts and pricedrops as well which is an improvement over last week. More game music is always nice to see as well.

    Overall I think I’d give this a 4 out of 5 star rating. Let’s keep this momentum up!

  • Hydrophobia Prophecy! Already picked that gem up on PC, but it’s great to see it available to a wider audience.

    That pinball game looks like fun, I think I’ll grab a table and see how it is.

    DC Universe, I’m on that ASAP.

    Thanks for the early update!!=)

  • When is the last day to buy the Uncharted 3 Fortune Hunters’ Club DLC?

  • Fate/Extra… Finally!!!

  • A lot of good stuff today.

    What about my ten bucks? I used atleast 4 $20 cards during this month.

  • More PS2 Classics? Cool;) Only 3000+ more PS2 classics to get on PSN now then LoL;)

  • Good Update U3 Rock on :)

  • Dark Souls theme went up in a hurry.

    Still waiting on Demon’s Souls theme all this time later. >.>;

    Clearly never happening.

  • been waiting allday for the update to make sure DC:U would be on there :D though…was hoping it would have the actual size to know if i cleared enough space off my poor little 60 giger :(

  • So looking forward to Fate/Extra and Hydrophobia. Not sure I can afford both though. I’m gonna have to check my bank account before heading to the PSN store.

  • Free game, and new avatars ! Yay !

  • Hi Gracie,

    One question for you: Do trophies come with the Crash Bandicoot games?
    Well, Back to playing Uncharted 3. It is such a great game.

  • @megamixer Ther are 4 PS1 games listed (all of the Crash Bandicoots) plus 2 unlisted imports: Arcade Hits:Magical Drop and Dezaemon Kids

  • Nice that you’re finally showing some love to the greatest College Football Program of all time. I will have to pick that theme up next time I have funds. GO IRISH!!!!!

    Overall, nice update. Love the ongoing Rock Band 4 DLCs even though I will never buy the game unless they somehow get Led Zeppelin to come onboard.

    While we are on the subject of PS2 Classics *Cough*megamixer*Cough* why don’t you release 24 Hours of Le Mans next? That’s the only PS2 game that I have never played that I have been DYING to play. If anybody is listening, PLEASE, PLEASE release that as a PS2 Classic. It would make literally the rest of my life if you would do that. Thank you. ;-)

  • Anyone else think that megamixer guy is nuts? He takes this stuff waaaay to seriously.

  • Yeah!!! Finally I’ll get Mass Effect 2!!! Now I just need my $10 back from my purchases of last month… Any Idea when We’ll get the codes???

    Anyway, The Everybody Dance DLC will be only offered by packs??? What a shame!!! The individual songs like in Singstar (and the model of Singstore) would be awesome…

    But it’s a very nice update overall!!!

  • LIMBO Developer Believes Retail Model is Outdated and Broken.

    “There will be discs for a long time from now, but the world has adopted download. When your mum and dad start to download things, that’s when it’s everybody who does it. So many publishers are pushing [discs] and there are so many channels which just won’t die easily. ”

    “Driving discs in a big van all over the world is really inefficient. I don’t understand how anyone can make money out of this. Driving a truck to Japan just to get it delivered to people when they can get it from the net?”

    – Dino Patti, Playdead

  • Awesome update guys, Downloading like 10 different files!!! 8)

  • Your comment is awaiting moderation.

  • Looks like lots of downloading for me again tonight.

  • I won’t buy anything until I get the Megamixer review of approval

  • Will the voucher code for our $10 be sent to our e-mail or PSN inbox?

  • Not again… something promised (Robots Dynamic Theme) that magically dissapeared. Come on!!!

  • Any word on the Doughnut Lazarveriv costume for UnCharted 3 Multiplayer?

  • This is a great week! Thanks for the article!

  • Kind of sucks about the U2 content. I already own it, yet I have to pay for it again to use in U3? Isn’t that double dipping?

  • uhhh, rocksmith just go freebird, so if anyone has that game why would you ever need any other song to play?

  • Amazing update!!!

    DC Universe for free is a must download!!

  • Definitely bought the uncharted hunter dlc preorder last week. And now its saying I didn’t. Definitely the best update in a long time but please fix this for me. how and when do we get the dlc vouchers for uncharted 3?

  • So am I getting no response because you don’t know? or because it hasn’t been specified it means that the PS + 1 year offer covers anyone and everyone who buys another year of it?

  • Hey? I read the Terms of Service for Hydrophobia. It stated that if I don’t continue to subscribe to Playstation Plus Service, this game will not be ours to keep FOREVER. So, meaning RE-SUBSCRIBE ARE FORCED UPON US. But I thought that someone who replied to Playstation Plus November Thread stated that it will be ours TO KEEP FOREVER if we don’t continue to subscribe to Playstation Plus Service. What’s up with that? Go and check on that thread where someone mentioned it is for ours to keep…. :-(


  • I have a couple questions.

    1. Would you be able to put the very first teaser trailer for FFXIII-2 on PSN?
    2. On that note; could you put the TV commercial for Heavenly Sword up on PSN?(old I know, but please!)

    3. Could we see a sale, or price reduction, on Motorstorm Pacific Rift and Mirror’s Edge DLC?
    4. XBLA recently had a sale on Blade Kitten; do you think PSN could follow suit with a sale or reduction?

    Thanks for your time and thanks for the update.
