  • Its a week away from Tales of Xila release and you still don’t have it available for preorder?! EU store has had it for preorder for almost a month now. I’m getting really annoyed by how slow and incompetent the NA Sony branch is compared to the overseas divisions.

    I mean how freaking hard is it to have one of the biggest jrpg releases this year for preorder? Especially when you can fit room for those crappy indie PLAY titles (with the exception of Ducktales). >_<

  • Thanks for the early update!

  • Whoa, so many avatars. I might get Max Payne and that GTA5 Kate Upto– I mean beach avatar :D

  • 9.99 for defiance…that is quite a sale or a mistake lol

  • wasnt tekken revolution suppose to have update/dlc today

  • I swear, I was deciding wich to pick first Journey or The Unfinished Swan, and then the bundle was twitted.I LOVE YOU SONY!

  • one month untill the biggest game of the year (sorry The Last Of Us) comes out. Please tell us that you at least are having conversations with Rockstar to bring GTA V to the PSN Store.
    Every-single-Rockstar-game has a digital version, and don’t see why this wouldn’t either

  • Are you going to sell tales of xillia in the psn? Is already in pre-order in the european store and in the us isn’t

    • Kristine Steimer

      I believe the earliest way to find out what’ll be coming up on the store (unless it has an earlier standalone blog post) is by listening to the PS Blogcast with Sid, Nick, Justin & now Clements. That usually goes up on Thursdays.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    Looks good. I’ll try those demos, thanks.

  • Where’s Soul Sacrifice DLC?

  • No NFS?? Buaahh!!! =(

  • Today I checked japanese and hk stores… There, we can download some psp games for Vita like Kof 94-98 Orochi, Tekken Dark Resurrection, Gran Turismo or Motorstorm Artic Edge, but we can’t in our us store… Why? Can you explain this to us players/customers?

    why some games don’t have a price drop? 35 bucks for Gravity Rush, really?

  • PrimeroIncognito

    @ Ryumoaner

    Go pre-order the disc, be happy with what you get, and shut the @#$% up already.


    Are you sure you’re gonna want that HUGE file taking up all that space on your hard drive? Unless your Blu-Ray drive is dead, I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t want the disc. Amazon has a pre-order bonus going on right now too. You can even get the Collector’s Edition with a steel case, a huge map, and bonus DLC all for an extra $20… I’m still trying to decide which one I want… :)

  • I’m sure GTAV will be available via Day 1 Digital..

  • Two straight weeks without a PS3 game on the IGC… that’s just wrong.

  • seeing as psp games in igc will never end, give us kingdom of paradise, final fantasy dissidia duodecim, and one of the grand theft autos for it and for ps vita give us dynasty warriors next, and shinobido 2, that would be awesome

  • Still no word on the remaining PSP and PSOne games being made compatible for the Vita I take it?

  • hey why PS plus 1 year membership is 48.99 USD in US PS store but 64.99 USD on UAE PS store ? what’s the difference , they both in USD ?

  • I bought Two Worlds II Velvey GOTY for the $5 plus promo in January, then it disappeared from my download list and expired. I work with support to try to get it back, tell them I dont want a refund because the game is currently $35, and they say that it should be able to be fixed. Then a few days later I get the unwanted refund, the partial content on my download list is gone, and I get no email or psn message with an explanation. Very poor experience for me. I guess i can hope it’s free on plus at some point. If you bought this game on sale or otherwise i would suggest you check its status.

  • $19.99 for God of War Ascension 10x XP increase for 36 hours? Is that a typo because that seems really expensive considering the entire game is on sale for $19.99 this week at some retailers.

  • Hey Cloudberry Kingdom and Max Payne 3!

    We got a new super funny host for the Go For Rainbow Podcast. He’s the creator of the Cyvasse 3D printable GAME OF THRONES board game.

    Take a listen:

    Direct Download:

    Anybody try Stealth Inc. Last week? Opinions?

  • Any news on Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory or the other 2 becoming direct downloads? please….

  • Defiance for $9.99? Wow it must have really tanked for them to drop it so drastically. I had waited because i thought it was overpriced at the time, but i’ll jump on it for that cheap.

    @8 Namco said Tales of Xilia is suppose to be day one digital so i’m not sure what is going on with Sony NA.

  • Slow week? i see nothing to spend my money on ugh i had money in my account like a month now & every week it’s crap popping up.

  • Mr Chen.

    My download list has been broken for nearly 9 months, meaning i CANNOT download ANY games from the PS store that I purchase unless I go through an old demo that accesses the OLD store to upgrade and go to my download list there.

    I’ve tried calling Sony support 4 separate times and they can’t help me. Can you PLEASE get the dev team to fix the store for any other accounts that may be broken? I can’t be the only one!

  • Another week goes by without any new psp or ps1 games added to vita storefront


    I want motorstorm arctic edge, twisted metal head on, final fantasy 5 sypro, crash, so many others

  • For the people complaining about lack of information on PSN Digital Releases. Our side of the world (quit worrying about the other side of the world, act your age) rarely gets pre-orders made available on the PSN ahead of time. If a pre-order is THAT important to you, go up to Gamestop or any other store that sells games. Or even set up a European account and pre-order through THAT store.

    As far as the Grand Theft Auto complaint goes, just download it when it comes out like the rest of us. They don’t need to waste time typing up a post explaining something that is irrelevant up until a month from now.

  • I may get PixelJunk, other than that this is all very meh. Not even any good sales this week

  • New avatars! ^_^

  • Buy Pixeljunk monsters for the Vita. It is a lot of fun.

  • Does the “Payday 2” pre order come with “The Lootbag DLC”

  • Sk8erfreakmatt10

    You’re mad because you can’t pay for the game ahead of time? It’s not like you can preorder it… Also why not just buy it on a disc. Pre ordering the game on amazon would have got you the DISC day 1.

  • So, now that the issues with Fatal Frame II have apparently been resolved (thanks for fixing that, btw), any news regarding a PSN release of Fatal Frame III: The Tormented? Pretty please? You can’t release two-thirds of a trilogy and then stop, right?

    (panicked tone): Right?

    • Kristine Steimer

      Happy to help re: Fatal Frame II :)

      Might be worth noting that I’ll likely never “announce” anything in these Blog comments, so if you ask about if a game coming to the store, there’s not much I can say.


  • Ryumoaner, why can’t you be happy with just getting the game in general? As far as I can tell, NA getting Tales games is already kind of a blessing. And no offense, but from what I understand, Xillia is supposed to be decent at best, and I would absolutely not say it’s one of the biggest JRPG releases of this year.

    Unless you really really want some pre-order bonus it might be coming with, I’d really just be satisfied that it’s even coming over here, on-time, without major delay.

  • Sk8erfreakmatt10

    Oh and new DW8 avatars! WOOOOO!

  • I already downloaded Cloudberry Kingdom, and I’m definitely looking forward to trying out Dokuro. However, I’m having trouble deciding whether or not to buy Max Payne 3. There is no demo available and I hate blind-buying games. What to do, What to do. . .

    • Kristine Steimer

      Cloudberry Kingdom & Dokuro are awesome! As for Max Payne 3, maybe read some reviews or watch some gameplay videos to see if it seems like something you’d be into.

  • GhostOfSparta332

    Dear PlayStation,
    I’m currently having an issue with the PlayStation store. Every time I enter the PlayStation store it notifies me that it’s undergoing maintenance. The next day it still says the same thing & I don’t think anyone else has a problem with this. I waited about two weeks for the maintenance to complete but I still get the same message. I also checked to see if the PlayStation store works on my Vita & it works fine. Is this a bug for me, or does anyone else have this problem as well? To make matters even worse, I have some money saved up for Grand Theft Auto V DLC , but I can’t access the PlayStation store. So whoever manages the PlayStation store please reply back to me and help me fix this problem.

    • Kristine Steimer

      Try deleting the PS Store App (Highlight the Store, press triangle, choose delete), then re-download.

  • er… anybody knows if dragon’s crown is being released on psn next week? i didn’t preo-order and… er… i’m counting on it being released here Ç_Ç

  • @38 no telling considering how terrible they have been with big japanese releases on psn.

  • lol Love how Grace completely ignored my comment despite it being the first one. Can’t even explain how poorly they handle digital releases. :/

  • @13 (PrimeroIncognito)

    Actually, Ryumoau has a reason to buy the PSN version of ToX – his disc drive failed, so he has to download everything from now on.

    @23 (Ryumoau)

    Like I said, Namco deicdes who gets to do what in each region, just like any other publisher. Europe gets to pre-order; we don’t. Yes, I agree that Sony needs to work with those publishers to bring those offers here to NA as well.

    But hey, I have my CE paid off so it doesn’t bother me that much.

    Anyways, back on topic – I’m glad NISA reissued the messed up Neptunia avatars for Purple, Black, Yellow, Iris, and Green Hearts, as well as Vert, who were cropped incorrectly. However, I do wish (and was hoping) that there would be Time and Eternity avatars today as well.

    @27 (Death8u4u)

    There are 3 sides, actually – but Japan always gets lost in our endless arguements between the NA and EU PSNs.

  • Ryumoau, you really need to sort out your priorities in life/start using common sense. There are plenty of options available to halt your worrying, yet you absolutely refuse to act on them and then have the audacity to say Sony is incompetent.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    @ Sk8erfreakmatt10

    I know, isn’t it sad that this freakin’ buffoon Ryumoaner can’t ever handle the simplest things… at age 25?!?! He’d rather fling poo on the blog wall. He just refuses to evolve. An embarrassment to humanity.

    I know I shouldn’t let it bother me and I probably shouldn’t say anything, but something about people who continually act like idiots has always rubbed me the wrong way. I used to stay silent, but I’ve lost all my patience with idiocy.

  • @40 (Ryumoau)

    Yet I somehow pre-ordered DuckTales Remastered….

  • Defiance from $50 to $10?! are you sure that’s not a typo? Is it a timed sale or the definitive price?

  • Tjoeb123, granted, but that doesn’t change the original point I was making. People worry too much about what is going on elsewhere that they find their existence here to be so inferior. Nevermind the fact that if he has that much of an obsession with pre-ordering it, he can spend the next 60 seconds making an account that could pre-order it from the European store.

  • hey grace

    how long will the discount last for pixel junk monsters?

  • My plus subscription expired a few weeks ago and I haven’t had any good reason to resubscribe, a few good sales but not much else. Bring me bac

  • @46

    I really don’t think it’s that simple, as he would also have to have either a EU PSN money card (multiple, actually!) or an EU credit card. Not to mention possible currency conversion fees and such, on top of having to use another email address and such…


    You certainly remind me of plenty of people who jumped all over someone who was asking a legitimate question on this week’s The Drop…

  • I REALLY hope we get Tales of Xillia avatars …. i downloaded the Max Payne 3 Ultimate Bundle a little while ago … I just bought it for the DLC cuz I have the game already…. you guys should have discounted the Rockstar Pass individually as well but oh well whatever :(

    Im still waiting for the Wild ARMs games for PS2 to be released on the Classics Section…. come on guys make it happen

    Cant wait to pick up Tales of Xillia next week!
