The good ol’ Doctor steps in this week for the arrival of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock on PlayStation 3. Journey through four London time periods and a number of alien locations in search of the answer to the mysterious Eternity Clock.


Ghost Recon Future Soldier Signature Edition releases this week on the 24th for Europe and 25th for UK. The Signature Edition includes the full Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier videogame and gives you instant access to exclusive content (see below for details)!

In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier, join an elite team of highly trained, cutthroat special ops soldiers. Armed to the teeth with unrivalled combat technology and cutting-edge military hardware, Ghost Recon takes you to the globe’s most deadly warzones to hunt down the highest value targets.

The Ghosts don’t worry about even odds. They do everything in their power to overwhelm and obliterate the enemy. Future technology is the key to winning an asymmetric battle.

Before the anticipated DLC is due, the Dark Knight himself creeps through the shadows in a demo for Batman: Arkham City, for those that are still on the fence about this incredible Batman game.

A new AR Game is also set for release this week – Table Top Tanks. Using your AR Play Cards you can draw the battle lines on any flat surface and create a theatre of war for your pocket-size tanks. Complete a series of missions and perfect your battlefield tactics, call in airstrikes against your enemies and take on up to three friends in Ad Hoc Mode multiplayer skirmishes. You can even use the “Solo Creator” mode to design your own levels and bring real-world objects into the game as obstacles.

In other news, check out the Uncharted 2 maps, as these are now free until 27th June when you’ll be able to get the first two games digitally!

I’d also like to apologise to our Plus users who may have noticed Datura was only made available for just one week. The team have reactivated this for another a week at 20% off as originally planned. Enjoy!

    Please please please Jill Valentine avatars are long-awaited for in England! Also please ask for Resident Evil Outbreak HD, Resident Evil Dead Aim HD and Net Yaroze!

  • aaronrogers2009

    sadly yet no spyro or any popular ps2 games on the store, shame!!!!

    • Spyro could be coming soon…but with all things, this shouldn’t be taken as a be all, end all.

  • Hey guys, any idea if the Dracula X Chronicles for PSP will ever hit the store here in the UK?

    The US store has it, and as a big Castlevania fan I would love to be able to play one on my VIta at some point.

  • where the hell r the capcom avatars we waited for 2 years!!

  • It’s AWESOME to see 3 of the Wonder Boy/Monster World games on PSN, just a shame that Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap isn’t included. I hope Dragon’s Trap find it’s way here eventually.

    Also, seeing you started with PS2 games a while ago, any chance we will see PS2 imports of games that never had a european release before? I would absolutely LOVE to see Suikoden III on EU PSN as we never had a chance to play it before. And it would be nice to see Suikoden 1, 2, 4 & 5 on EU PSN too!

  • Whens Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale out?

  • Pretty good update :)

  • Will Europe be getting the ModNation Racers DLC sale that the U.S got yesterday?

  • San Andreas please!!

  • where the hell is TOMBI!

  • Thanks for the additional week of Datura discount, I missed out on that the first week it launched. Any chance of seeing Plus discounts on soundtracks (inFAMOUS2, flOw and Journey, anyone?)

  • Table Top Tanks and Super Hang On for me.
    Don’t think I should be spending any more money than that on games until after I come back from the Euros, although Sorcery is calling to me!

  • Are the SEGA games compatible with the Vita?

  • So is that Free maps for the PS3 Uncharted 2?

    I can’t see it in the list…

  • Hellloooooooooooooo

    Just wondering if the Yu gi oh psp games will ever be available on the PSN and be available on the VIta?

    Keep up the good work :)

  • Carnivius_Prime

    Surprised the ‘new’ Mega Drive games are up the same time here as they are on the US store. I even spent the last five dollars in my US account on Monster World IV not expecting it to be here so soon. Oh well, needed to spend that anyways.

    Very happy to see Doctor Who out. I would love a TARDIS avatar though. Looking forward to playing the game when the store updates later. I need some cheering up with my recent PS3 technical issues.

  • Is there a demo planned for the doctor who game jawad? Can’t risk the purchase anymore lol

    Oh and how does the preorder of sorcery work? Does it download now then unlock at midnight Friday or star downloading on Friday?

    No plus goodies today? Where is ross cause the US keep getting stuff every week :/ afaik

    • Some titles do end up with demos later but at the moment there aren’t plans for the good Doctor.

      It will download on or around the day of release so long as you have set up your system to wake up automatically.

      He is sorting content regularly so when he lets me know of anything I will add them to weekly update.

  • what are the chances of seeing the Transformers Armada ps2 game published by Atari being released?? any chance at all?

  • When will we have the Journey demo that’s available in the US today ?

  • >2 ultimate weapons

    Ultimate? Really? The last ever, or so good you will need no other? How can there be two? Do they fight over which is the most ultimate?

    Thank you marketeers for rendering another word in the English language meaningless.

    Unrelated, but that’s a pretty good price for Order Up! It was one of my favorite games on Wii, I liked it so much, I got it for PS3 a few years later!

  • Hi Jawad,

    Any chances of us seeing the Sega Ages version of Dragon Force, since Sega is now releasing that series’ games online?

    • Sega is your best bet to ask on this matter. Remember, they will make announcements on their products before we will be able to.

  • Where do you guys get the idea to charge €60 for a game that will cost €45 in store?

  • Yeah hurrah for the sega classics but 2 OMG that steep price for Dr-who i thought it be a tenner i think i wait.

    & only 1 ps2 classic you are spoiling us SCEE, SCEA has a ps1 classic & 2 ps2 classics what the excues this time for no partially with SCEA hmm. :|

  • @Jawad whats the file sie for Conflict: Desert Storm II.

  • Dear SCEE and Sega,

    The Mega Drive games are frustratingly overpriced.


    The Customers

  • I was really looking forward to the old Wonderboy stuff (I’m old school, what can I say)…. and then saw the pricing’s.

    I know – it is trite to whine about 40 of my pennies. Then I checked out every other price.

    Once again pricing is stacked in the favour of our American counterparts. On a digital download…. where it makes not one jot of difference.

    Sorcery, Doctor Who, All retro releases, all overpriced.

    It’s such a shame that this is mentioned every single week without fail now and there is nil to bumpkuss response from anyone.

    So – can we expect a response today that isn’t the usual “we thought long and hard/it was a shame we couldn’t match/we don’t care”?

  • Great Update!

    Will have to give Sorcery a try on Demo :) and is Alex kidd the origional Master System game?

    PS1 Games Please – Casper, Digimon, Spyro, GTA 1,2 & London.

  • Hi, the pricing for Fallout New Vegas: Lonesome Road game pack (in the Apocalyptic Sale is still wrong, it still says £7.99, when do you intend on correcting it, as the sale ends in a weeks time?

  • cheers for Wonder Boy games

    seriously can you get some some rpgs in the ps2 section – the US got Persona 3 FES – why can’t we? also some other oddments like Steambot Chronicles, Mr. Moskeeto or US imports of ps2 games like the Harvest Moon that was only released in Japan and the US

    the same could be said for psp games – there are rpgs that were released in US but not here

  • When will we get The Walking Dead Episode 2???????

  • Pinball Arcade out in Europe yet? NOPE.
    Why the freaking delay???

  • Sorcery Demo, Doctor Who, Revenge of Shinobi, possibly Super Hang on…. quite a few bits for me this week.

    I’ll likely get Sorcery so look forward to trying it.

  • I can’t find Tanks on the PS Vita store!

  • Hi Mr Ashraf,

    Not to rain on whatever goodness there might be in this update (I’ve only skimmed it), but please could you tell us where the Flow soundtrack is? Last I heard you were ‘discussing’ it. What does that even mean?

    If I don’t get a response today, I’m going to have to buy it off iTunes, which I’d really rather not do. This doesn’t reflect well on the EU store.

  • I’m still baffled by the fact that Capcom avatars take so long to hit the EU stores (Resident Evil 5, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Asura’s Wrath, etc.)

    I can understand a delay of a week or 2 but we’re talking MONTHS here (in MvC3 & RE5 a year..).
    I know there is a submission incoming, is this slowdown on Capcom’s side? Or are they floating in Sony approval limbo?
    I (and many other) would like to know what’s going on exactly.

    The almost year wait for those Darkstalkers avatars was already frustrating enough.

    Nothing personally against you Jawad, I know you just manage the update blogs, but a lot of us just want an explanation for this expectional long wait.. can you dig up something?

    Thanks in advance.

    • From what I have been told there are a ton of avatars to get through and this won’t be a quick job. So they are coming, just not as quick as you would like.

  • Any idea when Zen Pinball 2 will be released?

    According to the developers very soon…

    We urgently need more VITA on the Store! The current offering is abysmal!

    • I can’t speak for Zen Pinball itself (have no received an update) but there will be more content for Vita oh so soon.

  • Although I agree that the Mega Drive games ARE too expensive. I’ll wait for a price drop on those.

  • hey jawad any news on tekken 4 coming to eu psn

  • Nice price for Doctor Who and an even better file size! I was dreading a six gig install for some reason. I’ll wait till Friday, and if for whatever reason the Disc version is sold by GAME for £254 (a ‘bargain’) then I’ll download it.

    Jawad – have you any idea if either the download or the physical copy (with a voucher) will entitle you to the Vita version either for free or at a discount to ‘incentivise’ you to get two copies of the same game? Love my Doctor Who but don’t want to pay twice for the same game!

    • I haven’t been informed on any dual purchase incentives and the publisher has not made any announcements for such a thing either.

  • ALso, I can not find the bundles for the Fallout DLC in the Plus section?

    Where are they?

  • Good things Doctor Who and Super Hang on.

    Bad things, no Daggerdale, Pinball Arcade or news on Zen Pinball 2. :(

  • Revenge of Shinobi, Super Hang-On &the Wonder Boy/Monster World games? Here, TAKE MY MONEY!

  • or anyone in sony really want tekken 4 on it

  • Best update in a while, I’ll be getting Doctor Who and the Sorcery demo.

  • Synaesthesia1993

    Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Such a classic game. Will definitely be purchasing!
    However, do you have any idea when there will be Hyperdimension Neptunia avatars on the PSN store? Seems the US and JPN have them already…

  • Hello Jawad!

    1. Flow Soundtrack
    What’s going on? Why hasn’t it been published yet? Is the translation of this item’s description too difficult or something?

    2. Previews
    Sometimes there is content that doesn’t have any kind of preview when it definitely requires it. For example, 92 (!) PS1 games, including the recently released Twisted Metal, and 3 NeoGeo games lack a preview. They don’t have even a single screenshots to them. What’s up with that? Unless it’s an avatar or a soundtrack or something free (demos, trailers), it always needs to have a preview.

    3. Warhawk for PS1
    When will it be available to us non-plusers?

    • It’s still being processed.

      The previews always get worked on and looked back on. If there isn’t one then there’s usually a reason why but it’s not something we’d disclose usually.

      Warhawk is only available to those who purchase Starhawk and redeem their network pass.

  • great update… lots of stuff…

  • SEGA games prices are too high really. And not even the posiibility to buy them in a bundle..

    Are we getting the bundles XBL is getting (Streets of Rage, Golden Axe,…) or the seperate (unreleased) games?

  • @37 gamestation is saying £19.99 on their website for it.

  • @33 i completely agree, we need an explanation i have given up hope 4 mvc3 avatars this is beyond ridiculous!
