  • Hello!Please! You could put all the new content for Tomb Raider (TR2, the avatars of anniversary and underworld, TR9 trailer) on “Franchising”.

  • Hi guys,

    Any news on whether the EU will see a similar DLC package as the U.S. did for Uncharted 3? I’ll be grabbing it all (most likely) and to get it at a discount would be great.

    Cheers! :)

    • Yes we are getting the Uncharted 3 fortune pack and we should see this very soon but I can’t confirm the exact date.

  • will we be getting any of uncharted 3 dlc soon?

    • Yes you should start seeing it come to the store within the next few weeks, depending on what DLC you are refering too.

  • before people ask DC Universe: Online you can only get trophys with a sub

  • Any news on Uncharted 3 fortune hunter club and when will we get the beta unlocks?

  • andy dont ignore me again plz were r the RE4 avatars ?

  • finaly Payday :)

    so Payday and Aliens Colonial Marines E3 Demo Trailer for me :)

  • I’m trying that Saints Row: The Third Initiation Station Beta out.

  • hey andy when does the store update? i just can’t wait to download nightwing? and it UNCHARTED 3 Today god too much excitement!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • depends on your location but everybody should be able to see all the content at around 4pm (GMT) as long as there are no technical hic-ups.

  • any infos about the infamous 2 blue soundtrack??

  • Any news on God Hand?

  • So we finally got PAYDAY. Only 2 weeks late. Won’t bother with it now seeing as i have Uncharted 3.

    Just Hydrophobia for me.

  • Any plans to add the GTA V trailer to the store in the next few days?

  • Very nice update this week :)
    I wont ask for Free realms this week, hmmm.
    What the hell, any free realms news for the netherlands :)

  • Andy can I ask why are the Beyond good and evil avatars now free for people who bought the game?

    it was promised on the blog they were gonna be free if you bough the game.

  • Thank you for all the GREAT replys last week about pointing out that at the beginning of the blog is info about PAYDAY, but not being able to respond to my questions 3 – 4 weeks in a row. Seriously. GREAT! Now, let me ask again: Where is The Pink Knight for Castle Crashers and are we gonna get half off burnout crashout like the US did? Or maybe you will want to pat yourselves on the back for finally having payday on the psn…

    • Well, I have answered these questions already, I might not have replied to you directly but other people have asked and I did respond, so maybe you should read the comments I post before passing judgement on how I work.

      To answer your questions… again:

      Pink Knight – This failed QA and was sent back to the publisher, so it is my understanding that it is under development.

      Burnout Crash – This was a PLUS deal I believe, therefore you would have to talk about this on the PLUS blog as I do not deal with PLUS content.

      3 questions??? That was just 2…

  • lol.

    £8 for uncharted network pass?

    I know this is for 2nd hand copies – But seeing as i almost always buy 2nd hand (or cheap online),i can see my ps3 being psuhed into sencond place for my attentions.

    Having stopped xboxlive 2 years ago,its now looking the more attractive & cheaper option for me.

  • Hello Andy,

    Two main points:

    1) Will we be getting the Fortune Hunter’s Pass? And could we possibly get told what will be among the DLC before buying it? Don’t want an ‘ulta golden gun pack, dudez’ game add-on!

    2) Tombi? Where?

    3) I bought Sam and Max last night, but when I download the episodes they dissapear from the page. Is this normal? Still in the download list, but no longer under the ‘games’ section.

    • 1) We are getting the Fortune Hunter Pack and I believe there is a blog post about it’s content already.

      2) No idea… Still waiting to hear myself.

      3) That is odd… So you downloaded it and it vanished? I am not sure what to say about that unless its a new game mechanice. Has the whoel game vanished or just the additional episodes? I suggest you bring that up with customer services or even contact TellTale games (the publisher) who might be able to help you.

  • No free DC Universe Online for Europe?

    SCEE lets us down again.

  • You mention DC Universe but didn’t include it in the list… :D

    Definitely getting Nightwing pack! Is the Halloween sale only on for one more week? Any clues to what’s next on sale?

    • I did not mention DCUO because it has already been released, its just gone free to play today, thats all.

      Yes the Halloween Sale is on for one more week, also stated above :D

      Next on sale, we got a bespoke sale dedicated to a old classic franchise which are well known for being bird and fish food, I hope you like it.

  • Doesn’t the xbox have online passes then for other games? I think it does.

  • Anything new on Sam & Max season 2 & Disgaea 4 DLC characters?

    • Sam & Max had a QA issue, hopefully this has been fixed and should release soon.

      Disgaea 4 DLC – no news yet, sorry.

  • Will there be any new Uncharted 3 skins added today. I was playing multiplayer and noticed that it shows skins that you can buy from the store but they arent available yet.

    Also will we be getting the fortune club for UC3 soon?

  • Oh nevermind, ignore my other comment.

    Europe is getting it today!

  • Hi andy

    Is there any further updates on PS2 classics?

    Are we getting them this year?


  • Do you know maybe how big is the client for DC Universe Online??

  • DC Universe is on the store now to be downloaded

  • I see BF3 is now available for download thru PSN, which is cool.

    Do you know if MW3 is getting the same digital download option?

  • hi Andy,
    is it possible to let us know the size of each game/demo/trial/theme/element? like on us blog? because right now when i want to buy something i have to check on their blog if my disk is big enough to buy things… well maybe not buy but download and install… i think it is pretty simple for You and to be honest this is BASIC INFORMATION…

    • Sadly this is not pretty simple for me or anyone else, as to get this information I have to go into each game, pretend to buy it and note down the file size. Now for over 100 pieces of content each week this is a massive job and very time consuming which I do not have the time to do.

      The US do it because there submission process for content is different, I am trying to see if there is a way we can do it here but can’t promise anything.

      However what I don’t understand is why you guys just delete the games you have completed or not playing right now from your HDD? Because you can always re-download them.

  • thanks Andy, great update :)

  • I bought the special edition of Uncharted 3 today and the content voucher doesn’t work. Could you please help?

    • It might be because the store has not gone live yet with the new publish, wait till around 4pm (GMT) to try again, otherwsie contact customer services as there is nothing I can personally do.

  • andy last week i saw you post that you have direct input into sales and talk to publishers about ideas ect and have a few ideas for the christmas sales.

    1. mass effect 2 :- the price had dropped lots now in the stores and ea could benifit from getting new users interested in the franchise before the 3rd part hits early next yeer.

    2. infamous 2 :- again this title has dropped in price in most stores and it will be platinum before long so why not include in sale to capatalise on new users who may now be interested due to festival of blood.

    3. shank ;- with shank 2 not so far off again ea could use shank 1 to generate interest in the 2nd one.

    4. the sonic games :- again an ideal way to promote the soon to be relesed generations.
    Also have a word with the sega rep and let him know that psn users deffo want guardian heroes on psn

  • So, no new DLC for Castlevania: Harmony of Despair and no Castlevania or Monster Hunter Freedom Unite avatars… I must say I’m truly disapointed.

  • Hi , i saw yeastrday green lanetrin add-on free and i press on the get bar
    and it show me that i have it but i could not download it and i did not find it in my download list and today i found it not free ,i want to buy it but i cant

  • DC is 15gb u need 25gb free. Had it since start gonna love ganking the free players tonight woop woop

  • these few games i mention just seem to make sence from a buisness standpoint imo.

    also when it comes to digital downloads how about making all playstation 3 platinum titles availble digitaly, i would happly buy some games digitaly that i might of missed in the past that cost £20 or less, i personaly feel that all first party published titles should be available day 1.

    finally why is it that ps vita games are going to be cheaper when downloaded rather than bought in store? it was my understanding that this could not happen hence the reason for the high priced bluray titles on psn?

  • Hi Andy

    Just wanted to let you know I was really, really pleased to see Valkyria Chronicles 2 + DLC on the Halloween Sale :) :) :)

  • any news on the new sam and max beyond time and space, are we getting it soon

  • Hi,

    Any news on SideScoller for Australia and New Zealand?


  • OK, I won’t ask for the UC3 Fortune Hunter’s club, but where are the Uncharted 3 DLC packs??? US got them day 1. Just wondering…

  • Please, is there any news on MK Trilogy?

    I’ve asked several times now, seen others ask all over the place but not a single time seen a comprehensible answer, usually just an answer pointing to another answer that is nowhere to be found.

    After the 7 week wait on Payday (which incidentally put Sony in breach of their PLAY deal lol) and utter silence on this I’m reluctantly giving up on Sony EU, please answer this, just once…

  • 1 month after US got castlevania HD + ALL DLC (in same time), EU still have only 2 DLC…

  • Hi Andy,

    I’ve a quick question..

    Will Jurassic Park: the Game be released on 16th November in the EU store like in USA?

    I sure hope so.


  • Still no Dungeon Defender. Is it so hard to give some information about it without people asking?

  • Any chance of some Sonic Generations avatars?

  • So not only do we not get the Fortune Hunters Pack for Uncharted 3 DLC, we now don’t even have access to all of the multiplayer skins on day one (which the americans got yesterday!)

  • @ 22

    Yes.EA games do …As far as i can remember.This is because EA is a money grabby corperate monster.Who even on exboxlive demanded to use its own (poor) servers …Or it would throw it toys out of the pram.

    And as far as i can remember – They didnt charge a whopping £8.

  • I just remembered i bought all of the PLAY games. When/where do i get my voucher for free PAYDAY?

  • Where is the Uncharted 3 Fortune Hunters Club DLC pack?
