‘Heads-up’ PlayStation Store update, 3rd April 2013


Leading the way this week is a demo for Injustice: Gods Among Us – a bold new entry in the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios, creators of Mortal Kombat, featuring DC Comics icons such as Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern, The Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman. Heroes and villains engage in epic battles on a massive scale in a world where the line between good and evil has been blurred.


Elsewhere, one of the finest hidden-object adventure games you’ll ever play is now available in a sumptuous high-definition edition! In Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign, help out James Voodoo as he investigates mysterious attacks through the forsaken hamlet of Ravenhill, the wealthy city of Richtown, and a variety of breathtaking sceneries inspired by major fiction genres!

If you’re looking to save some pennies this week, please keep an eye on our ongoing Egg Hunt promotion and check out a number of healthy price cuts on both PS3 and PS Vita titles at the bottom of this post. And Plus members – don’t forget to download this month’s free PlayStation 3 content today! Enjoy!

  • No avatars??

  • Hey Jawad,

    What’s the deal with God of War Ascension ?
    It was said that it’s getting digital release on Playstation Store…..


  • No Terraria again!

  • Hey Jawad & Chris

    Bioshock Infinite season pass is still not working !!!

    We should receive day 1 extra dlc…. It’s also not listed under our download list sice there is nothing to download :(
    However it does show as purchased.

    And it looks like others who bought it have the same problem.

    • The Season Pass exclusive DLC is up today. There were some issues last week holding it back. You should be able to check it out now.

  • Hi Jawad,

    Any news on Legend of Dragoon PSN or a Persona 4 Golden PS Vita promotion?

    • Nothing to share for Dragoon, unfortunately.

      Persona 4 Golden is still fairly new, so I wouldn’t count on it. Who knows, though…

  • Let me grab dat Injustice: Gods Among Us. Seeing the big, great description… will you be playing it Jawad?

    Also, dat costume pack for NG3:RE. Plus Plus.

    Busy gaming April. Literally :P

    • I will be checking it out. I’m more of a Marvel and SF guy instead of DC and MK, but I’ll definitely be giving this a shot :)

  • Finally GTA liberty city stories!!!

  • Jawad, I’m about to purchase the digital version of Darksiders II. But first I’d like to know if the online pass is included in the pack and, if so, if I’ll be able to redeem it since that item doesn’t seem to be available at the Store anymore to be purchased individually.

    It makes no sense to remove the online pass from the Euro Store suddenly, without any kind of previous warning, not even here in the blog, when it’s still available at the US/CAD Store, the Marketplace and even Steam. It’s not really a cool move for those who recently got the physical version of the game either…

    Could you, please, guys bring at least that item back for a limited time so we can play the game as it was meant to be? Otherwise label the game in the Store as “Incomplete”, stating what’s missing, so it doesn’t look like false advertising..

    • From what I have gathered, it only contains the Crucible Pass and not the Season Pass. Hope that helps :)

  • Or Bit.TRIP Runner 2 and Machinuium for Vita?

  • Hi Jaw, any chance to get on sale Wipeout HD/Fury, Journey & Unfinished Swan?

  • Well nothing for me this week.

    When can we expect Legend of Dragoon to make its way here?


    No Machinarium?!? Why is it like this!?! The US got it 2 weeks ago!

  • can’t wait for the plus stuff to download, but where is the Rainbow Moon sale that it’s developers announced on their site???
    it’s already on in NA…

  • I don’t want to sound too critical here, but the store update has been live for quite some time on the browser store, and this has happened before. What exactly is the point of a “Heads-up” if the thing is already live?

    It’d be like going outside in the rain only to be told by someone “Oh hey, did you know it’s raining today?”

    I understand this post takes a while to make, but it’s been almost 3 hours since the store updated, and I just don’t see the point in calling it a “heads-up” anymore.

    • You know, a name change has been suggested but it never happened. Perhaps we’ll revisit the idea…

      The post itself is always scheduled for 3pm, however. It’s been this way for some time.

  • Hey Jawad!

    Great update this week :)

    I was just wondering what happened to War Zone: Anomaly? Was this scheduled to ever release in Norway? And where has SXX: On Tour disappeared? Norway has to be the prime market this time of the year!


    • Anomaly has not been scheduled for Norway sadly.

      SSX: On Tour should be available to Norway. I’ll get this checked out.

  • lol GTA Liberty City Stories store screenshots are actually GTA IV Liberty City Episodes screenshots

  • hi cool update just asking when we can see Ni No Kuni Wrath Of the white witch in a sale really want it but the price tag a bit high for my liking

  • No Terrari again… Any idea when we’ll get it? I hope this doesn’t become another CS:GO situation.

    Still, at least we have the Borderlands 2 DLC on time, so I’ve got something to be getting on with. :)

  • Yawn. Let’s see the Croc games as PS1 Classics, and Kingsley’s Adventure.

  • Hi Jawad, what about fix for Bioshock Infinite season pass?

  • Where is Nun Attack and Table Mini Golf? I thought they were both out today. Also, any chance of PS Vita games such as Sumioni: Demon Arts, Retro City Rampage, Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath Oddbox and PS3 games such as The Unfinished Swan going on sale?

  • Nothing for me this week, bar the PS+ bits.

    @#17 I thought it was reduced already on PSN?

  • Btw, do you mean Ben 10 UA: Cosmic Destruction on PSP? Only Ben 10 game was released for the Vita was Galactic Racing since Omniverse did get a Vita release.

    But oh well, just the Plus games for me and once the Store is error-free. I’ll download them.

  • In steam there is currently a gta pack with all gtas .. gta 3, gta 4, gta vice city , gta SA and so on….. all for 12 or 13€ . in psn this would probably cost over a 100€ …. not complaining just saying.


    Jawad, please set up a PS1 sale?

  • Reading these Store updates each week makes me not regret Selling my Vita.

  • @23:
    I meant did ‘not’ get a Vita release. XP

  • No Terraria? Great. Time to change my console to xbox360. Goodbye everyone, i am selling this black platic piece of sh**.


    Jawad, can you please get Ubisoft to put the Ps1 title, Driver 2 on the store? Thanks.

  • maybe i should sell my vita

  • Great update, especially the PS Plus games again.

    Currently there’s an offer where if you buy PS Plus you get an extra 90 days free. Does this apply to the shorter 90 day subscription or just the year long sub?

    Also, how are the PS2 games chosen for release? Any chance of some of the Atlus RPGs? Mainly Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifers Call I’d like, but any of them would be great be it Devil Summoner or Digital Devil Saga.

    • It only applies if you purchase the 1 year subscription.

      PS2 (and PSOne) titles are submitted by our publishers. If they’re interested then our guys will do the whole QA process. If this brings up too many issues then we won’t be able to release them e.g. the Digital Devil Saga titles. So it all really comes down to the publisher first.

  • Jawad, the price drops listed at the bottom of the post (DMC et al) are permanent or time-limited?

    Also, please make us a big surprise tomorrow for the newest Egg Hunt offer. The last one is subpar, at least for me. Maybe some PS Vita game? Who knows.

    And thanks for the PS Plus offerings (Okami HD and The Cave)!

    • I don’t like to say “permanent” because this environment is changing all the time. It shouldn’t change any time soon, then is what I shall say. :)

  • Hello Jawad.Is there any chance to see Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks on PSN? Thank you!!

  • When does this web browser downloading launch?

    also any chance you could have a chat with the team about organizing things properly? the unlocks for the U3 multiplayer are nowhere to be found on the store even via search and only some are viewable through the in game store

  • And on top of that. I thought Nun Attack is out today so what’s happened? Is it shifted until 3 months or because I’m not for quarter of a year for these again.

  • New Plus stuff yay :)
    Still haven’t played all games from April last year but yeah ;)

  • What happened to Defiance? It was supposed to be released on April 2nd, but GameMania in Netherlands says it has been delayed until 5th. It’s not listed on the PSN Store update, either.

  • From playing the Injustice demo it seems clear they still don’t know how to make a fighting game that doesn’t feel so mundane and unexciting. Very dull and the combat lacks the feel of impact on the attacks. I’d like a DC fighting game that really captures the epic feel of some of the comic’s greatest battles and yet this feels far more lifeless than any still page of a comic.

    Capcom’s Marvel stuff unfortunately goes right the other way being an overloaded button-mashing mess of crud. The early games are alright. Maybe if there was some developer who did a Marvel vs DC game they might find the right balance. And I’d still play mostly just as DC guys (cos Marvel did enough in the past few years to put me off their comics forever.. awful stuff)

    • It’s amusing you mention Marvel’s comics putting you off recently as some would say the New 52 had the same effect for DC fans :)

  • Do we have a release for SuperFrog HD yet?

  • I see the Ninja Gaiden 3: RE DLC but where’s the game ???

  • @28 if it bothers you that much just get a US account instead of being a damn drama queen…

  • Any chance of a discount on metal slug xx on PSP?

  • A few of the Tomb Raider dlc items are not appearing on the store … the Shantytown map and the Guerilla skin (possibly more, but I know for definite that these are missing).
    Any idea what the hold up is?

  • Has Defiance been linked to the Store yet?

    I bought £10 worth of items last night through the in-game menu link with the Store, only I didn’t receive them…but guess what? There was NO problem taking my money though!

    Isn’t that illegal? Falsely selling items (digital or not) under the pretense the customer will obtain those items they bought…only to hold them back…after taking the money?

    Now I think about it, I’m absolutely certain this is illegal.

  • @Jawad
    Thanks for the reply. As I said, didn’t want to sound critical, I really appreciate the amount of time that goes in to these posts (not just this one, but all the stuff the blog team put together) and always check the weekly update just in case I missed anything when browsing the store, but with how early the store is updating “Heads-up” just seems like the wrong sort of name now.

    Hell, could even make it in to a competition here on the blog, to come up with a new name for the weekly update! We already know that the community is a very creative bunch, and I’m sure some great ideas would be submitted.

  • Thank for Okami HD. I never tried the PS2 version, so this is great!
    A little disappointing that Injustice isn’t in the Portuguese store… Oh, well. I can wait.

    Oh, and any chance for a discount on Malicious, the PSN game?

    • Okami is such a great game. I’m sure you’ll love it. And if you don’t…well…that’s just too bad!

  • Is Jetpack Joyride no more free?? o.o

  • @Jawad or anyone at Sony when will Singstar be removed from XMB??
    While the storm of protest might be down, we still don’t want it permanently there !!!

  • “From what I have gathered, it only contains the Crucible Pass and not the Season Pass. Hope that helps :)”

    Thanks a bunch for you answer, Jawad.

    So, if it contains the Crucible Pass and it’s still redeemable, I guess it’s safe to get the digital version then.

    Anyone knows if that’s also applicable to the physical version, is it still possible to redeem the Crucible Pass included in the retail copies now that that item is no longer available at the Store?
