PlayStation Store Update

Hi Everyone –
We kick things off this week with two of the biggest PlayStation 3 games of all time are making their way to digital release for the first time. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves are now available to download! Pick up both games as a bundle for $39.99, or purchase individually at $29.99.


The Amazing Spider-man hits theaters next week (and from the sounds of some early reviews, it sounds awesome) but the game is available for download today in the PS3 Full Games category. Navigate through the Manhattan skyline with the return of the fan-favorite, free-roaming, web-slinging gameplay. With classic villains, visceral combat choices, and an all-new epilogue story to the movie, this is a release no super hero fan should miss.

Resident Evil fans have a lot to look forward to with Resident Evil 6, but to satiate the hunger for zombie action, you may want to check out Resident Evil: Chronicles HD. This bundle of two amazing retellings of the early Resident Evil storylines features Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (previously not available on PlayStation consoles), which have been remastered for the PlayStation 3 with HD graphics and PlayStation Move compatibility. It’s available at a discounted price over the retail release and an even greater discount with a PlayStation Plus membership.

PS Vita sees more great functionality with the YouTube App now available for download. With the YouTube application on PS Vita, you can watch millions of YouTube videos on PS Vita’s stunning 5” OLED screen. And with 3G, you can watch your favorite content – from comedy to gaming tips to viral videos – while you’re at home or on-the-go.


The online portion of GT Academy 2012 may have ended, but that doesn’t mean you should stop playing Gran Turismo 5! Arriving this week are two new exciting DLCs – The Twin Ring Motegi Pack and Scion FR-S 12. Check out the dedicated post for more info on this content.


PSP owners take note; there’s some great content this week including Unchained Blades. Featuring the work of developers from legendary games like Grandia and the Lunar series, this JRPG dungeon crawler boasts a unique combat system where teams of four characters battle and unchain monsters to unleash devastating abilities.

PlayStation Plus subscribers get some great updates today as well. You may have seen the news that the Journey Collector’s Edition is coming August 28th. While this amazing package will feature a TON of exclusive content (in game commentary, revealing documentaries, and more) PlayStation Plus members can now snag the core PSN Game Journey with a 20% discount for $11.99. You’ll also see the aforementioned Plus discount on new release Resident Evil: Chronicles HD, for 10% off, as well as 20 free Virtua Fighter 5 avatars to sport on your PSN profile. Note that next week we’ll be talking about the Plus outlook for July, so stay tuned.

  • Wussup party peeps!
    Nice store update, woo!

    Unchained Blades looks pretty sick ~_^

  • Woah no more Articles guys :D

    Question: You can preorder ACIII and ACIII Liberations on the EU store. Will that feature be availible for US members before the game comes out?

  • People BEWARE of Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, it has the Capcom abusive DRM

  • The amazing spiderman digital ?! thats awesome

  • Do Unchained Blades and Gungir (two weeks now its been broken) work on the Vita yet?

    • I don’t think Unchained Blades works on PS Vita, but the Gungir team is still working with QA to get it working on Vita. And for the record, it’s not broken, it’s a PSP game primarily and plays fine on PSP, but it needs to pass cert to work on PS Vita as well. If we put it out on PS Vita and it didn’t work, THEN it’d be broken ; )

      But I get it’s something you’re looking for and from what i understand, the teams are working on it.

  • Should drop the price on the 2 Uncharted games Seriously great games but coming up on 3 and 5 years old respectively. They just don’t command such high prices anymore. Especially since anyone who wants them can buy them cheaper on disc still get them new and save a buttload of HDD space at the same time. It’s basic economics tought in high school. If price outstrips demand sales will go down.

  • Another great update. Early too. Thanks PS Store TEAM!

  • Shame there’s no Episode 2 of The Walking Dead, but at least it comes out on Friday!

    Thanks for the update.

  • Call me blind or impatient…but where’s the youtube app again? :P

  • PartyTony keeps the party going.

  • Will there ever new add-ons for Tales of Graces F?

  • Nooo. The YT App doesnt work in the background….we can’t watch walkthrough’s on the go

  • Whats with the censorship Grace? I wasn’t using 4 letter terms of the George Carlin variety. More like commenting on the Uncharted games would sell with a more realistic price. Don’t believe me? go take an economics course.

  • I searched the YT app and found it. It wasn’t in the APP section when i checked

  • Why in the world are the Uncharted games $30 each? The MSRP for the Duel Pack is $40.

    The Controller bundle’s MSRP is $60.

  • I just want to state that I HATE the new PS+. Why fix what wasn’t remotely broken?

    • what specifically don’t you like? please break it down as the general “i don’t like it” feedback doesn’t help us get a feel of what members might be looking for. but be nice =)

  • I dun see subscriptions in this YT app….

  • I knew I was blind, thanks makosoldier :)

  • Brave Fencer Musahi please!

  • Morgan it is BROKEN, when PSP compatibility is advertised as a Vita feature and Yoshida himself stated in an older interview that ALL new PSP games would be compatible on the Vita.

    Broken, is exactly the proper word. Broken is something that is not working as intended, planned or designed. Just because those claims were later redacted and modified to “select titles” doesn’t make it any less significant.

  • Took long enough, just wish you guys would update early in the morning. Say 6 A.M. CST

  • any news on when (if)) hakuoki is going to work on vita? or gungir? looks like unchained blades doesnt either. )

  • Also, if you’re going to start having 20gb downloads, you need to update the PS3 firmware so you don’t need twice the hard drive space to install a game.

    Currently after you download a game it checks for available space after the install file is downloaded so if you don’t have twice the space available it won’t install it. This was an issue on the PSP for a while and you fixed it. Time to fix it on the PS3.

  • Im thankful Youtube is up and on time.

    Do we have any updates on a release date for Jet Set Radio? I was hoping it would be out this month.

  • Neat update! Hey Morgan, do you know if you NEED a Move controller to play Resident Evil Chronicles, or can you use a Dualshock? Also, can we expect any Gravity Rush avatars in the near future?

  • Subscriptions and not runnign in the background is sad but everything else about the YT app is amazing. The picture quality is undeniable on the OLED. The interface is better than Mobile phones IMO. Everything is really well layed out. Props to SONY and Google for this one. Ima very happy customer right now

  • Is there a date for Jet Set Radio HD yet, especially for the Vita version?

  • Any word on getting some PSP games that weren’t previously available digitally, on the store for Vita use? I’d love to play some Crisis Core on my Vita. Thanks.

  • Any word on the Vita apps Travel Bug, Ecolibrium and Imaginstruments? Also, the Badman calendar app would be cool if it releases here.

  • Is their a discount to Playstation Plus Subscribers for the Uncharted Bundle Pack?

  • Disney games?!? What kinda “classic” is that? Give us Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012 and Destruction Derby RAW!

  • Im not happy with the uncharted price, and i hate there wasnt any ps + discount for it, and its a 3 year old title!, but i guess ill have to buy it anyway : /

  • Aren’t the PSP games that are coming out since the Vita launch pretty much all Japanese games that have been certified to work on the Vita in other regions already? I know there’s minor programming changes during the localization process, but these games also have to go through QA for each region anyway; I’m astonished Vita certification isn’t part of that.

    Does Hakuoki even work on the Vita yet?

  • $60 total for both Uncharted games? That is pretty weak, man! You can get the dual pack for $40 on Amazon, there’s absolutely no reason why you should charge more for a digital release.

    You didn’t have to pay for shipping costs, packaging, and you don’t have to worry about people reselling your game…so what gives you the right to charge $20 more than usual?

    • You can get the dual pack for $39.99 on the PS Store as well. I know the update post doesn’t show the bundle, so I’ll request that get updated shortly.

  • Upset that I can walk in to any gamestop and buy a boxed copy of Uncharted 1 or 2 for $10- $15 used yet as a plus member it costs $23 for a digital version each!

    Upset that there’s no word on PS1/PSP backwards compatibilty which is one of the reasons I bought the system at launch just to find that it was non functional or “select” titles only.

    Youtube app can’t pull my subscriptions.

    PSP games cost $10 more digitally than they do in stores used (I’d LOVE to give the dev’s my money and have a digital copy of some of these PSP/PS1 games (heck I’d buy some twice just for a digital version!) but with such a large price difference and no reduced cost as a plus subscriber it’s hard not to feel a little ripped off.)

    Will probably get Journey for the reduced price but as my time in plus goes on I’m starting to not see the value.

    I LOVE my PS3/Vita and only want to see it succeed but when you can’t compete with retail in a digital service what’s the point?

    It’s just disappointing. :-(

  • I just downloaded the new add-ons for Pinball Arcade but I don’t think they are working. I downloaded the DLC last week on Vita and it worked fine. This week I downloaded the new DLC for Vita plus both DLCs for the PS3. Neither the 2 DLCs for PS3 or the new DLC for Vita are actually in the game once I boot it up after I have installed the DLC. Am I the only one having this problem?

    • From QA: The patch for that game is set to deploy today at 7:00GMT. The Patch is required to use the DLC, sorry for this delay.

  • hmm coudl the next PSOne classic be TOMBA! 2 or one of the megeman legends series?

  • boy I wish unchained blades and gungnir worked on vita the sec. they do (or I find out they do) I am buying them!

  • With the slow addition of games to the PSVita compatibility list, it is almost to my advantage to plan on getting Unchained Blades for the 3DS in a few months. That release at least has a general idea of when it will be available.

  • @31

    PlayStation Plus

    Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune ($22.49)
    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves GOTY Edition ($23.99)

    ? or is there no discount for the bundle? I’m not home right now so can’t check

  • but whatever as for positives YOUTUBE APP ROCKS

  • Heck, I’d like to see the original DRIVER on the PS Store too..

  • sorry for the double post



    UNCHARTED Greatest Hits Dual Pack ($39.99)

  • oh nevermind, didnt saw uncharted 2 for psplus is 24 $, gonna get that! great update.

  • I want to give you guys my money – please make an effort to make all new PSN releases of PSP games work on Vita day 1. Instead I now have to wait for weeks/months for comparability to happen which may result in loss of revenue on your end, or more importantly the developers.

  • Shadow_Raskolnik

    Another week and still no PSV-compatibility for Gungnir, you’re killing me here Sony.

    Ah well, at least there’s the Gravity Rush DLC so this week’s update isn’t a total loss. But seriously with the Vita being the successor of the PSP there should be no reason why any future PSP titles released after the system should have to go through this process several weeks after they are released.

  • No discount on Uncharted Dual Pack for us plussers?

  • ok HELP!, Monster hunter, i cant find it on the store! , can I play it on PS3? please say yes, get back to me quick, i really need that game!

  • youtube app is nice, too bad no subscription can be seen, yet i hope! :)

  • Any chance that Lego Batman 2 will be available for digital purchase anytime soon?
