  • Really early!!! Very good.

    • I’ll pass on the appreciation to the Store Ops team who always works incredibly hard every week to get updates to the community as early as possible.

  • Awesome! Thanks for the early update!

  • Early update is early! Time to grab me some Tomba! and DOTP 2013 (gotta get that Vampire Nocturnus promo too! :D)

  • Muchas gracias for the early update!

  • where is playstation plus content i thought they were adding more content regularlly seems this month instant game collection was a last mintue thought to release whole months content an call it instant game collection. anyone else feel the same?

    • The instant game collection refers to the goal of at least 12 games free in Plus now, at any given time. That’s a ton more than there ever was before; along with several PS3 Full Game titles. But it’s fair feedback and we’ve got our eye on what people are looking for in terms of new content rotating in.

  • Early updates are always appreciated, even if it’s a little light on content. You know what would be really awesome? Limbo on PS Vita. I’d love to carry that game with me.

  • Liking the price changes. Still no Vita compatibility for Gungnir :( Disappointing.

    • The QA teams are at work getting Gungnir prepped for PS Vita compatibility. but I have not outlook as to when that may be in effect.

  • @5 with all the stuff we got at the beginning of the month, I don’t really think there’s much room to complain, in all honesty.

  • Hoo doggy, this is early. And a pretty good update as well! Nice to see a steady stream of Vita content beginning to arrive. I think I’ll have to trial Ghost Recon; never played any games in the series, but seems worth checking out.

  • Im having a problem.l When I go to the new releases on the store. It shows only the mini and the sub catorgries and the last weeks games ( only 20/20 squares). When I search for Tomba to buy it, it says I”this content can not be bought on this account.”

  • Great gaming memories with Tomba. I’ll pick it up, but it would be even better if I could play it on my Vita :)

  • Hey Morgan,

    I’m just wondering how much longer the PS+ discounted Sly Cooper games will be on sale for. As there was no “official” PS+ post for the month, so it would be good to know.

    Thanks! =)

    • I’ll work on bringing these updates to the Store Update posts on anything that may be going away. But I believe the Sly deals went away today

  • Is Lego Batman 2 actually cheaper on PSN than in stores or is that a typo?

    • PS Vita titles normally have a slightly lower price point than retail, so it might be the case here, no?

  • Is there any chance the PSP versions of Final Fantasy I & II will ever come out on PSN? I don’t know why North America’s PSN doesn’t have them, but they’re up on the Japanese and European PSNs.


  • Release PSone classic for VITA dammit!!

  • A little disappointed. Was hoping to have similar Vita game sales like they are having in Europe today and last week.

  • If u can, re-release Tomb Raider Chronicles, Gex: Enter the Gecko and Fear Effect, they have been on the European PSN for some time now.

  • Thanks for the early update and for the quick responses to questions in the comments. Much appreciated and well done.

  • Thanks for the early update about 3:00 pm over here in Ohio

  • i know there wont be a reply/answer but..Whats the hold up on The Walking Dead game 2? Kinda lame we already gotta wait 5 months befor seeing the ending but now we have to wait extra time to even get the second installment? pretty weak to me.

    • The Telltale channels can offer the most insight on this, but I don’t have any news at this time. But something tells me it’ll be worth the wait

  • Why does SCEE (Europe) have amazing vita sales and you guys have given us US Vita owners NOTHING?

  • Probable gonna pick up limbo or Alice, By the way the price for DCU Last Laugh DLC is priced wrong, it says $0.99 When it should be $9.99.

  • Hey Morgan Haro how come we still can see our PsVita trophies on our PS3???? Im mean come on now!!

  • DCUO DLC just for 0.99$ really ?

  • i stay california and how long before the up dates come to the far west

  • Am I the only one who thinks its weird that Close Quarters DLC for BF3 isn’t in the store…?

  • Always appreciate the early updates. Buying some DLC as I type!!

    Can’t wait for next week.

  • ^can’t^

  • Hey guys: I’m also getting that “This content cannot be accessed from your account” message when trying to access the new games like Duels of the Planeswalkers. Just sayin, hopefully it gets fixed soon.

  • I have a request the Japan Store has a dynmic theme Akiba’s trip any chance that can be put on the store.

  • The store hasn’t actually updated. Ad images have, but none of the content like Magic 2013 or Tomba have actually been added.

  • agree with #10… the only way to find the new marvel avengers chronicals tables for marvel pinball is to type it in search… and then when i click on it, it says it can’t be accessed on my account. what gives?

  • Great update, but nothing for me this week… Which is fine because the instant game collection added quite a bit to my game queue… Great job Sony!

  • Why do you guys continue to ignore Vita sales in the US when Europe had sales on digital tiltes last week and a huge sale on retail digital titles this week

  • I retract my statement then. It is indeed the Vita version of Lego Batman that is $40. I thought that was a PS3 full game for some reason.

  • So, the store has not been updated Yet?

  • Is the BF3 add-on available for everyone or just the pro something adopter?

    Plus was cool after E3, but should shift back to the normal monthly releases or atleast post about the new monthly guarantee. I was still waiting for PS1 games and DLC.

  • Cant wait to pick up the Marvel DLC for Marvel Pinball. Somewhat early update than what we are used to.

  • The Walking Dead Episode 2??????????????????? The Walking Dead Episode 2?????????????????? The Walking Dead Episode 2????????????????? The Walking Dead Episode 2????????????????

  • Thanx for the reply Morgan! I agree the first episode was really great thats why im stressn gettn the second. Gotta see what happens (@_@) lol

  • Great update. I like the PS+ deals on AC: Brotherhood, RDR and Limbo. I’ve played them all before, so I won’t be buying any one, but I personally would recommend every one of those.

    On the other hand, Alice: MR is really tempting now at $20.

  • The song Fireflies was released for rock band 3 Gotta pick that up.

  • Did Grace get fired?

    • No, Grace is hard at work making the PS Store as awesome as can be. We wanted to establish a more direct connection with the community via the PSN community team. But we work very closely with Grace and the Store Ops teams to bring you the latest content and get your feedback to them as well.

  • So I want to give you guys my money but every time I try to buy one of the new items I get an error that reads “This content cannot be accessed on your account.”

    I guess no Magic 2013 for me. >.>;

    Thanks, Sony.

  • i know there wont be a reply but when are wake up club and t@g, and youtube app coming out for ps vita

  • are we ever going to get more hyperdimenetion neptunia avatars and dynasty warrior avatars or what..

  • ah… patience is a “virtue”… avengers assemble!


  • Also, Any idea when alarm app and the treasure app for the vita come out?

  • Seems the store isn’t actually updated as of yet. (3:40 pm Eastern)
