PlayStation Store Update 01-15-13 Frequently Asked Questions

  • I pre-ordered my copy of DMC, however, when I try to play it, it says that I need to renew my license. How do I fix?
    Due to a fix with allowing pre-order customers to get the bonus content, you may need to go back in the PlayStation Store and click ‘Download’ on the DMC game page. You don’t need to redownload if it’s already on your PS3. Just click the download button and that should ‘renew your license’.

  • Nice Update!

  • Any News in PS2 classics being able to be played on the vita? :)

    Can u guys PLS bring Star Ocean Till the end of Time to psn?

  • See you next week Ni No Kuni

  • Oh my goodness, the price drops on Vita games are hilarious. I thought they would have been at least somewhat substantial. Cracks me up. It becomes more and more clear how little Sony cares about Vita each and every new PS Store update.

  • Contra Shattered Soldier for PS2 classics please :)

  • BTW im getting a problem with Re-downloading the 2 games sony gave for the psn downtime to my new
    500GB HDD after i download them they say “pls connect the psp or vita to the ps3 and copy the content” LOL!

    Can someone give some insight to this? The games are dead nation and wipeout. :(

  • Free DLC for Far Cry 3 – Awesome, thanks Ubisoft.

  • Hope to see more PSOne Classics on Vita in the near future.

  • Corpse Party!!!!!!!

  • Hi Morgan, I know you mentioned that you don’t have much information about when other publishers schedule games for release on PSN. But I was wondering if you had any info on the following SCEA games:

    Gran Turismo 5
    God Of War III
    Uncharted 3
    Heavy Rain

    I ‘m pretty sure these games would be quickly welcomed by everyone.

    • We’re always looking for great content to add to the PS3 Full Games section, but for now, don’t have any news on those; but they’re all certainly great games.

  • I still would like to see Konami put a sale on the Castlevania LoS DLC like they did for the UK…

  • based on the “leaving soon” list looks like no new PS3 game next week which means no new PS3 game until Feb

  • Finally an alarm clock app for my vita!!!!!!!!!

  • Finally Disgaea! A game worthy of the title PS2 Classic.

    Hope to see more great classics come to PSN. (Digital Devil Saga, anyone?)

    • Spent wayyyy too many hours on Disgaea back in the day =). If anything XCOM was the latest game to scratch that same itch; but this is a great addition to the PS2 Classics library for sure.

  • LMAO 40 dollars for Angry Birds Trilogy LOL OMG go back to iPhone.

  • i’m just curious, whatever happened to updating the PS blog share?

  • Darksiders and Wake-Up Club for me this week.

  • I’d Love to see Better Avatars. Does anyone even buy these??

  • Thank you for the FREE ’14 Corvette Stingray PD and Sony!! <3

  • Great Update Team… Would we ever get Ps1 or Ps2 classics as a plus feature like we did on PS1 games in past? or is it going to rotate every now and then?? Again good work Going to pick up Darksiders
    Also any news on more Video Apps coming out to NA users Such as hbo go app or so?? Or is it still hush hush lol

  • darksiders is 10GB

  • still no decent sales again this week.. haven’t bought anything for weeks.

  • i hoped the vita games had better discounts but hey….

  • Very slow week for sales on PS3 games apparently.

  • Great box with the PS+ Info. I’m sure that now I won’t forget to check the “Last Chance” section. Thank you!

  • Nice a very nice update :-) Morgan just a suggestion hopefully you can get the team to work out a discount on the unfinished Swan thanks I like always see you next week

  • Any news on when hyperballoid dlc will be back on the PlayStation store. I am wanting to buy it but can’t find it anywhere

  • Corpse Party YES FINNALLY

  • Forty bucks for Angry Birds? I just threw up on the floor.

  • Wow. Angry birds is $40. This is why your stock is so mediocre sony. The mobile platform is killing you. You are not competitive.

  • Could you fix the Tropy sync it’s been incredibly slow since i bought SEGA vintage collation monster world

  • Grace/Morgan,

    Whoever decided on putting the Plus stuff in a highlighted box, excellent choice. Nice way to draw attention, maybe have a few less questions on what’s leaving and what not.

    All in all, not the greatest update, but it is January. Liking the Plus stuff, and the DLCs for this week are right up my alley, with borderlands and far cry 3. Hope to hear some candid reviews from the blog team about DmC before I pick it up.

    • Thanks, glad you like it. The Blog team (Sid and Justin) did it.

    • Thanks! I’ve been wanting to find a better way to highlight the Plus content in each Store update, and I think this serves that purpose pretty well.

      As for DmC, I can’t speak to it personally but Sid has been talking about how much he likes it. Not to mention reviews on the ‘net have been praising it nearly universally, so I think it’s a safe bet. :)

  • @31 wow really Sony dont control Publishers pricing.. It is 3 games for 39.99 i believe that is a great buy for ps3 platform. Remember Sony don’t always set the price’s The publisher and Developer needs to make money, so it is their team that sets the price..

  • Nothing exciting really. I guess I’m just waiting for AC3 DLC and Killzone Mercenary.


  • Angry Birds Trilogy $39.99


  • Please bring Pangya Fantasy Golf (PSP) onto the Playstation Network, it may be a golf game, but it’s a damn good one. The coding behind it is wonderful. The gameplay is good, LOADS of customization, features both a story / mulitplayer modes, you can use bombs as golf balls, you can be a demon, bear, and a bunch of other characters, you can golf on magical floating islands, or in HELL. It’s just really good. I have it in UMD format but unfortunately it isn’t on the PSN where I’d re-buy it so I can once again enjoy it but on my Vita.

  • i also think the NEAR app for the vita would be cool on the ps3/ps4 as im sure people living in big apartment buildings dont know all their neighbors.

  • good to have darsiders for free..

    any news for No ni kuni digital released?

  • Wooo! Definitely got Wake Up Club!

  • Will Ni No Kuni be on the PSStore when released?

  • Oh! Shasha Grey theme

  • Thank you Sony for Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (PS3) and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows for the VITA. Will i ever see Metal Gear Solid Portable ops or any of the ACID game come to VITA? those are the ones I’m waiting for especially.

  • Angry Birds Trilogy ($39.99)

    What is Rovio smoking?

  • @38

    that’s pretty risky if you live in a bad neighborhood… XD and scary

  • @2 Depends on the licensing.

    @30 @ 31 Its available on disc as well. I’m sick of Angry Birds.

  • wake up club is really cool ,it make your vita show the time always ,it never close and that I love it !!!!
    darkisder yeah cool choice ! was hopping to get my hand on DMC but the son of sparda !!! ill wait for that im a collectioner

  • Wake up club. Finally! Now where’s Ecolibrium & Travel Bug?

  • @25 The store has a Leaving Soon section in PS+. Check that often.

    @18 PS+ users get some free avatars. This one I have atm was part of a bundle that I bought using a code from the Journey Collector’s Edition. Might change it.

  • Seriously blog hosters I have to ask what incentive is their for me to pre-order a game from the ps store. I don’t get a midnight release, no small discount on the game, nothing to make me really want to buy the game online early.

    I live on the east coast suppose I brought DmC pre-ordered from the store I wouldn’t be able to play it until 7 or 8pm EST or I canjust buy the game from any local retailer at 10am.

    Will this issue be addressed

    • Thanks for your feedback. There are different incentives depending on the game. Oftentimes, games that are pre-ordered on PlayStation Store will be released/playable at midnight Pacific Time. We are working on making that more consistent for everyone.
