RE4 - 'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 21st September 2011

PlayStation Store (via PS3, PSP and Media Go)

Hello everybody! Ross is at a top secret meeting today (which I don’t even know what it is about) so instead you got me – which is probably for the best because I’m going to be extremely attentive. So “Let’s get this party started!”

Today we are delighted to announce the release of Resident Evil 4 (a personal favourite of mine, which I am sure does not need any explanation) with a discount for PLUS members of 50%. In addition for PLUS members we also have a discount of 50% for The Undergarden, a game the whole family can enjoy.

We also have coming to the store today the pre-order for PAYDAY: The Heist which I am sure you have heard about though our PlayStation Network PLAY promotion. This game is released in early October but please note if you have already bought the four games in the PlayStation Network PLAY promotion you will not need to buy / pre-order this as your copy will come to you as a voucher in your email. So don’t pre-order if you’re eligible!

As for special offers this month which are available for everyone, UbiSoft have contributed some awesome games for you to buy, include Outland and Clash of Heroes as well as some of the Prince of Persia games. So don’t forget to check them out also.

So that’s from me for this week, check it all out and I will be making comments

  • Where’s Future Publishing – Access? Should be available today.

    Also, Driver @ £57.99 someones have a right laugh!!!

  • Holy hell, Fighting Force? I loved that game on my psx, and thanks for the WKC2 dlc and the missing DW7 BGM pack from last week, Fantastic update!

  • Hey ross thanks for the reply last week any update then on FEZ? I won’t keep hasling you about this every week lol.

  • Can you explain why many downloadable versions of retail games are more expensive than the retail prices?
    They should be cheaper because there’s no cost to make the box, the disc, the manual, etc.

  • Hmm since when did u guys start doing pre orders in the store :p

  • RE4 all the way :) gd update this week but ross iam getting a bit fed up off asking and i bet ur getting fed up of me asking aswell but were are the MvC3 avatars ?? & call of duty map pack 4 tomorrow :)

  • Hello,

    Decent update but a few questions:

    1) Can you push Ubisoft to discount Prologue next time they reduce prices? I have original POP and want to get this at a good price seeing as it isn’t meant to be all that long.

    2) Driver price is a joke.

    3) Any PSOne classics coming up soon? Tombi? Resident Evil 2/3 (via imports)? Heard a lot about September being the month of classics, but next to nothing besides Tomb Raider.

    4) Is it possible to get a discount on BTTF or Tales of Monkey Island?

    • 1) I will ask and see what we can do but sadly no promises as it is up to UbiSfot

      2) Thats not a question

      3) I have no confirmed releases of any new PSone games yet but I have been told there are some in the ‘pipeline’

      4) Good shout, lets see what can be done

  • £57.99 for Driver San Francisco?

    Is Ubisoft serious?

  • Great update!

    Any idea if (and when) Guardian Heroes might make it to the PSN?

  • Where is Auditorium HD?

  • Seriously. There’s no reason a digital release should cost more than £25. I know you guys say it’s up to the publishers, but can you not pu t in some kind of filter for these stupid price suggestions?

  • Hi Andy.
    I just wanted to ask if you could provide us with release dates for Rock of Ages or Dungeon Defenders?
    I’m aware that Rock of Ages is already available on the Xbox, and that they have a confirmed release date for Dungeon Defenders.
    But unfortunately as a PS3 user I am completely unaware of any upcoming release for either game.
    It appears the whole trend of Xbox players enjoying games long before we get the opportunity is becoming a more and more common occurrence.
    From Dust being the most recent and maybe best example of this.
    Due to a recent post on this blog, I am aware of Microsoft’s practices in obtaining exclusives for their console.
    And although I do disagree with their entire approach, it must be good to know as an Xbox user, they are fighting your corner.
    It’s a shame that as a PS3 player, we are left feeling let down time and time again.
    This is in no way whatsoever a complaint against yourself.
    But I would hope this post may be read by someone who is in a position to address this matter.
    Thank you.

    • I agree with everything you just said and I feel your pain as I am in the same boat. All I can say is that hopefully something will get sorted out about this, when and how I have no idea though.

  • Nice update, at last we have WKC2 DLC! :D Are you guys planning to bring anything else that is on the JP Store? Because there’s a lot of content!

    Also, seeing there’s no TGS trailers on the Update List, I guess we’re getting them next week?

    Thanks Ross :)

  • ohhhh soz andy fort it was ross i didn’t look hu posted it lol

  • Hi,
    1 question related to store / Weekly updates.
    We used to get a post every month stating what Playstation Plus members would be getting for that month, and the following month.
    I didn’t see this for a while, and did a little search earlier and couldn’t find it… (Sincere apologies if it is out there and I didn’t find it).
    Could you please advise on this?

    • The PlayStation PLUS content is now added to this blog post. So you will now see this at the top of the blog post when there is a content refresh.

  • Arkedo Series: 02 – SWAP! sweet!!!

  • Does RE4 HD contain additional DRM from Capcom?
    Finally there are some nice offers on Ubi’s games. I may grab Outland. Cheers

    • Not sure about the DRM content, I suggest you contact Capcom directly about this.

      Outlands is great! Get it while it’s on offer. However Clash of Heroes is my personal favourite.

  • good update. will be getting resi 4 and f. nv dlc

  • A little more love for the NZ/Australia regions, but not reason as to why there were so many omissions last week?

    I’m almost tempted to change my region to UK (which is where I now live…)


  • Fighting Force? SWEETTTT. Now I don’t have to use my disc version, and I can play it on PSP. Awesome.

  • Driver San Francisco for £57.99 – [DELETED]!

  • So when does this go live? Been desperate to play the final New Vegas DLC.

    • It will start to be rolled out at around 3pm GMT. So depending where you are based you should see all content by around 5pm in all locales.

  • Andy! Only you could announce this update with your perfect Avatar!

    What am i buying? Resident Evil 4 today! Yay!

    Any word on Resident Evil 2 & 3 for psone? Also could you guys get in touch with people behind STar Wars The Force Unleashed, and see about them discounting the add ons, please :D

    • Sadly I have no news yet os Resident Evil 2 & 3 but this is somethign we have been trying to get sorted, any developements we will let you know.

      As for SW: Force unleashed, good idea let me see what I can do.

  • RESIDENT EVIL 4!!!!!!!!!!! cannot wait to play this game again, shame about no platinum :-( but half price for plus users kinda makes up for it :-)….maybe

  • Ah, that reminds me:

    How much will Dead Nation: Road of Devastation cost? USA is getting it at £3.99, will we in the UK get it for around £2.80ish? Good value if so! Can we expect further DLC? Thanks to Sony’s generosity I discovered a brilliant game that I am set on buying extra content for, and buying the sequel if it ever comes around.

    • Sadly I don’t know about the pricing for this yet but I am as excitied as you are because Dead Nation is one of those games I wish never ended.

      Mines X 5 explosions FTW!

  • anything for Playstation +?

  • Damn. Nothing for me today. I’m still hoping we get Shock Troopers over here or should I just buy it from the US store?

    Looking forward to stuff I read on the US blog about the DC Universe Online becoming free to download and play. I’ve missed playing that game since I had the beta but I don’t play any game enough to subscribe a monthly fee to (‘cept maybe Uncharted 2 :P )

    Meh, maybe I’ll get RE4 since it’s half price for me. I’m not fond of the series at all but I might give that one another go.

  • Hey Ross, could we please have a discount on the ghostbusters: sanctum of Slime game?
    Really itching for some ghostbusting after all the buzz with the 3rd movie!

    • Ross is not here today, sorry your suck with me.

      I will request this, lets see what happens.

      And remember kids, ‘Don’t cross the streams!’

  • Good update, I know it may be asked alot but what time shall the store get updated with this?

  • Only one thing i might get today: Burnout crash ;-)
    Other than that nothing for me…

  • Gah sorry Andy, didn’t see you there and yeah I’ve asked about the Ghostbusters SoS before, just wanted to make sure Ross got it directly in case you had forgotten :(

    • Me, forget?!?! I am almost offended!!

      Just kidding :D

      Your quite right to suggest but sometimes these things take time. I am on the case however (because I want it cheap too :P )

  • Nice update, planning to buy something, cheers.
    And by the way, is the price right? Don´t want to be rude or anything, but still, only 5,5 Pounds? Fallout: New Vegas – Lonesome Road (£5.49/€6.99)

  • Clash of Heroes DLC and Arkedo Series: 02 – SWAP! for me this week.

  • I forgot to mention I am very disappointed with the lack of RE2&3. Not even a word about it. :(

  • Still no MK arkade kollection? guess i’ll have to buy RE4 is there any chance of some WWE avatars at least for when WWE 12 is released?

    • Sadly no MK yet but i believe Ross commented on this last week.

      As for WWE 12 avatars, I will ask and see but they might not be out for the release date of the game.

  • Resident Evil 4 for me, Payday I get for free so no worries about that.

    Can you guys look in to getting Crisis Core on the PS store please.

  • whats with the stupid prices for retail releases in download form? 58 quid for driver?!!? we can get the collectors Ed for 50 and that comes with a disc, a manual, a case to keep them in and a ornament of a car flying through the air

  • Hey Amdy,

    “There is something happening with Syphon Filter and other Sony PSP games, I can’t tell you what yet but as soon as it is all confirmed I think you will be happy.”

    Any updates?


    • Yer I can’t update you on this yet but as soon as anything come offical I will let you know.

      Sorry to be so cagey but I don’t want to dissapoint and give you duff information.

  • Finally WKC2 content :)

    About that, I wanted to know other things about the game updates :
    -When will we be able to create new quests ?
    -When will we get the same patch US players have on their games ? They have the balance patch japanese players got, but we don’t so it’s not fair for everyone.

  • LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Driver, £57.99?! Do the devs honestly think someone would be absolutely braindead enough to buy that for that price?!?!? Ahhh..

    But, on the other side of the spectrum..Lonesome Road? £5.49? A discount??? I love you Obsidian and Bethesda. TAKE MY MONEY.

    • Driver – no comment :(

      Lonesroad Road – Thats not the discount price, thats the normal price because Obsidian and Bethesda are epic!

  • Please, please, please introduce an ‘edit’ button as I keep on coming up with new points!

    Seeing as both Splinter Cell and Beyond Good and Evil are priced at £7.99 is it not high time that Ubisoft cut down the price of Prince of Persia to £7.99 for good?

  • Where’s EU free RE 2 & 3? So stupid :(

  • & andy do u no when the dead island DLC is out ? cheers

  • @4: The explanation I head is that publishers are afraid of [DELETED] of retailers, which at this point in time is still crucial for a game to sell. So they don’t want to alienate the publishers by undercutting them on price, thus the online prices for ‘retail’ games tend to be a bit inflated.

  • WOOOOOOP RE4 cant wait!

    Any idea when the blood ravens DLC is coming out for Warhammer space marine?

  • We where told there will be a plus discount of 20% off Payday The Heist when it was due to be released. We where told when Play was first announced. Can you confirm if there will be a discount for plus?

  • Hey.

    The Resident Evil 4 HD game is listed as £15.99. On XBOX it was listed as £15.99 too, but then when it was put onto the store it was only £14.99. Do you know if it will be the same here? Otherwise I’d have to question why we’re paying the extra £1.

    “Resident Evil 4 HD is currently sitting on Xbox Live Marketplace for £14.99 or 1840 Microsoft Points, slightly different to the £15.99/1600 MSP price point the publisher previously announced.”


    Also what time of which day exactly will the store update be at? I don’t normally keep up with this stuff but I really want Resident Evil 4.

    Hopefully you can answer these questions. Thanks

    • Sadly I can’t comment on the price as we do not set these, the publisher does.

      As for the update, this should be rolled out to all stores by 5pm GMT.

  • Are we going to get any replies today? Im starting to get very irritated at the lack of responses from SCEE!

    Ive bought RF: Guerilla from the store, but its only reading my copy of the game as a PS+ Game Trial. Now, I’ve paid for the game – any suggestions? Its not appearing on my download list!

    • Give me a chance! Jeez… you are the 50th post after all.

      If you are having technical issues I siggest contacting customer support as there is nothing personally I can do.
