  • hey Sir_Bronius, There is no Cross Buy for Dragon’s crown.. sorry.. it only Cross Save

  • Dragons Crown avatars please

  • Regarding “hiding” trophies in the latest Vita update (which you guys didn’t post on the US Blog so I have to write here)

    People never requested to Sony to “hide” trophies

    What people requested was the option to DELETE games from their list under a certain percentage (I would say 15%) which would affect their trophy level and lower it accordingly!

    People did not request the ability to HIDE them which affects nothing about your trophy level and also lets your profile appear to artificially have a high completion rate (even though websites like PSNProfiles will show the actual, lower completion rate) and results in skewing other numbers and stats. It results in mass confusion and doesn’t fix one thing, it only makes things worse!

    The trophy community is currently pissed off at this sloppy implementation! Please fix this!

  • when are you going to release demos i’m interested in.?

  • Have a physical copy of Dragon’s Crown (Vita) pre-ordered, so have to wait for that to arrive.

    What’s the Storyteller voice pack? Is that included with physical copies or should I grab that from the store?

  • I’m downloading the Hitman: Absolution. But I haven’t figure about this special discount for the Sleeping Dog. Do we get Free along with Hitman: Absolution or do have to pay the full $ 24.99?

  • Still haven’t fixed the Vita Store freezing issue I see. Way to continually ignore this guys!

  • Did anyone else notice that the MLB 13 THE SHOW Home Run Derby is free this week? I didn’t see it mentioned above, but it is showing free on the WebStore. Free is good!

  • and im not getting the thank you for your purchase emails anymore …. weird

  • hello kristine steimer ;D i love you!

  • @xClayMeow – From the Stores Description: “Dragon’s Crown, the multiplayer action beat-em-up from ATLUS will offer players the ability to customize their story with different narrator voices from each of the six playable characters in the game: Amazon, Dwarf, Elf, Fighter, Sorceress, and Wizard. These character voices replace the game’s original narration with their own distinct voice.”

    Even though I finished Tales of Xillia a while back, I might have to replay it to stack trophies. Any word if they will be releasing the special costume packs (Star Driver, Santa Suits, etc..)?

  • Already playing Dragon’s Crown and its awesome!, Tales of Xillia is in the bag now too.
    Its sad to see there’s no Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory DLC now for 2 updates in a row now =/

  • Thanks, RidleysBox. I “purchased” it from the store just in case it’s not included with the physical copies. Sounds like it won’t be.

  • @BlueRobotX

    I have the same problem with my Vita as well. A lot of times the system crashes when downloading more than 1 item from the store at a time. I even have it crash when I download 1 item. So you’re definitely not the only one.

    Sony Team:

    Thanks for Hitman Absolution I now have all the games on my PS3. I also wanted to thank you guys for adding cloud storage to the Vita as I was getting extremely frustrated having to start games over from scratch.

    I would also like to know if we will be receiving GTA V as a day 1 digital title? If so will there be a pre order option as well?

    Thanks for reading. Keep up the good work.

  • YESS! Thank you for finally discounting Castle Crashers! Been eyeing that one for a while; I think the last time it was on sale at all was beginning of 2011!

  • Why on the ps store it shows hitman bundled with sleeping dogs but it really isn’t ?

  • Definitely grabbing Hitman Absolution, Ibb & Obb demo, and the Sound Shapes avatars (already had the game + DLC, but thanks for the sale!).

    One more thing. Could you please add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store?

  • when is terraria coming out for PSVita?

  • I see that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn isn’t on pre order. Will you release a digital version?

  • Dragon Crown has the option of Cross Buy ??

  • @BlueRobotX Yeah I’m having the same problem as well, I’d say it started with me sometime around April when Soul Sacrifice came out.

  • Hmmm.. Now TofX or Dragons Crown RPG lover lost in thoughts.. SONY buy ATLUS PLEASE worthy studio to join our family :)

  • Xillia is all for me this week.

    i’m still really annoyed that Sony NA couldn’t be bothered to work with Namco to get us the preorder option for the game on the store, despite EU being able to.

    Yet they made sure to secure preorder rights for that boring NHL 14 game that noone will even buy. :/

  • Let me add my voice to the Vita owners who have trouble with the store.

    When I buy an item, it freezes right after it asks me whether or not to share the purchase data. Normally it would go back to the store and begin downloading, but instead it just stays on that screen.

    It’s not a hard crash (because I can still try to push the home button, which gives me a sign to indicate it can’t go to the home page), but still the only way out of it is to shut off my system and try again.

    Lately, since as others have noticed, Sony has yet to recognize the issue, I just download onto my PS3 and transfer the games later, which is a step I shouldn’t have to take.

    It would be nice to have the months-long bug recognized by someone.

  • y no Tales avatars?

    Wish I could buy Tales of Xillia, but DuckTales and Final Fantasy XIV are calling me.

  • ok its available to purchase now :) i had to let the trial end

  • My head is going to explode! Which dragons crown should i buy, Vita or ps3? Pleease do not say both )= only have money for one. Please respond to my question and make my life easier lol.

  • No digital discount on Dragon’s Crown=Retail Purchase!

    The theme should have been Dynamic!

    Please change it back to “Viewable themes prior to purchase.”

    Grabbing SuperFrog…that’s a win/win in it’s purest form.

    Castle Crashers is loads of fun mayhem…buy it now ~ add me for some CO-OP!

    Rahmen aka Rayman sales are enticing since I never owned any, but hear great things.

    That Monster game is screaming for a purchase at just $1.00!!

    Not to crazy about Hitman.

    I missed the Soundshapes deal last time…debating it now.

    Another Tales game…people are happy when rpgs are released!!

    niiice update 7.5/10

  • Unable to download Hitman: Absolution Special Edition as a PS Plus member, as I keep getting a message that my drive is full on the first download which is the add-on for the Deus Ex ‘Zenith’ Handgun, even though I have plenty of storage space. I have had this error before with Oddworld, yet still not functional even after deleting and re-installing the PS Store app as suggested. Please help!

  • XILLIA Purchased! Why is Xcom coming in at 9 something Gigs? Pre orders are usually in the MBs.

  • @70 no Dragon’s Crown is not cross buy and the game of course is not published or developed by Sony so, that wasn’t their call.

  • so..um…when are we gonna get to pre order one piece pirate warriors 2?
    before it comes out…
    so we can get the free dlc n stuff
    cuz times a goin’ haha ._.

    i mean europe’s got it already i’m just wondering if we will or will not >.>

  • Shadowtroops THE PS3 VERSION!!!

  • @77, shadowtroops, I had the same struggle as well. Went with the PS3 because I wanted to play it on the big screen, and more likely more people will be online.

    But, I probably will pick up Vita version when the price drops.

  • @82

    considering we didn’t get to preorder Tales of Xillia, i wouldn’t hold my breath on One Piece being preorder option either. Both are namco published.
    NA Sony psn has been too incompetent lately when it comes to digital preorders for japanese games. Too focused on boring sports games (NHL 14) or generic shooters (Payday 2). :(

  • CRASH BANDICOOT AND SPYRO FOR PS VITA!

  • Sony with the release of dragons crown, I hope that you guys can come out on top and win the bid for Atlus. I would HATE to lose my persona games.

  • @66 How To Get Sleeping Dogs for $24.99
    1. After you purchase Hitman, go back into the PSN store and search for SLEEPING DOGS.
    2. The price should now show as $24.99.
    3. Add to your cart and checkout.

  • Dragons Crown is way over-priced.

  • MLB The Show 13 Home Run Derby game is FREE… Don’t know when that happened, but I scooped it up. 4 quick trophies too.

  • Hey. You know what would be cool? An original PlayStation grey DualShock 4.

  • Oh god! $55 for a 2011 game? Why?

  • @90 nice find

  • Whoever buys atlus please buy them and leave them alone, I dont want a big company turn it into a crappy studio like most outhere nowdays.

  • @92 Henrywke777 Because it’s one of the greatest games ever made and totally worth twice as much 2 years later lol.

  • Not Letting me download HITMAN saying not enough space but i got about 30bg of free space what gives

  • Not having cross buy on dragons crown is disappointing but oh well…

    Also, I agree that Sony should buy Atlus. It is a very natural fit, due to both their close relationship and great exclusives over the years, as well as the styles of games are really only found on the PS. It should be kept that way. :)

  • @96 dgarcia1587

    It is a 16.1 Gig download if I’m not mistaken which means you need 32+ free to download and install. BS I know but that’s the way it works on the PSN unless you are Naughty Dog and make an installer for the game like they did with The Last of Us. :/

  • ToX and some dlc for one of the best psn games (sound shapes) for me this week :D

  • Looks like I will download Hitman Absolution beat it than delete it. I cant have all those GB’s leaving my HDD.
