  • I get this error on every store link. Have to manually search the titles.!/en-us/error/undefined

    Please fix this.

    • Its trying to find the page on the US store. The clue is right there in the link you posted :P (en-us)

    • Thats because that is the address for the US store. For some reason whenever you click on any store links it changes to the US store. Annoying isn’t it.

    • Sorry folks, that is an annoying quirk. We’re fixing it now.

    • The links are working fine for me. Forgive me for asking an obvious question, but are you browsing from outside of the EU? The link should auto-detect your region.

    • No Im in the EU. But I set English as my default language instead of my local language.

    • It only happens if you aren’t logged in. If you log in beforehand then it directs to your country automatically.

    • Im logged in now and still getting the error.

    • Logged in on the actual store? Not just on the blog site?

    • It happens when you are logged in to US account/was last logged to US account. If you go to (logged in or not) and it shows US storefront by default, you have to log in to EU account, so it can overwrite region cookies.

    • Thx dirtiestturnip, logging in actual store helped. However logging out again still gets the error. Changing language/region to local doesnt help either.

  • Is Lone Survivor cross-buy?

    • Not it isn’t, it asks me money while I have already bought it.

    • That’s a shame. I hope it’s not the same for Thomas Was Alone but it seems like a trend is forming with Curve games when released on PS4 as opposed to the likes of Spelunky, Hotline Miami and the reverse for Don’t Starve with developers who are doing it right for early adopters. I would have loved to play it on the PS4 but not enough to double dip.

  • No Sound Shape DLC? When can we expect it since NA got it yesterday?

  • Are the pre-order cars for digital DRIVECLUB going to be fixed?

    You posted a comment last week that a fix was rolling out, but they still cannot be downloaded.

    • I bet they do nothing to fix this. Pathetic

    • How much you betting? They are fixed.

    • As frodouk said, it has already been fixed. For the 3 cars and fame boost at least.
      The 50% off a 12 month PS+ sub is still nowhere to be seen however.

      “In addition to that, we have another surprise up our exhaust pipe! Purchase DRIVECLUB at retail or digitally via the PlayStation Store, and you’ll get a 50% discount voucher for a 12-month PlayStation Plus subscription. ”

      Jawad is there any news on when we can expect it? I’m glad everything else is working now from the preorder items at least :)

    • It‘s kinda fixed, cars and boosts are there but so are the corrupted original DLC preorder entries which error any attempt to do a system Restore Licences, which screws up trying to rectify other games having issues with DLC not showing up in game. Needs fixing still… another couple of weeks and we may have a fully working game, craziest release I‘ve ever experienced. Really very poor and indicitive of the state of PS4 gen Sony as a whole.

  • Wow really? again you forget the DOA5u Halloween Set ….

    • The bundle will be out later. The individual costumes are out today.

    • Jawad could u answer my question please

    • How much later? It’s getting silly how these bundles keep getting delayed for no apparant reason. We are still waiting on the Nyotengu costume bundles.

    • How can it possibly be acceptable to delay the bundles? You don’t have to upload any more data, just another small store entry. The descriptions for every costume say it’s also available in the bundle (not that it’s ‘coming soon’). And as Clisp says, we’re still waiting on the Neotengu bundles. All of this content was available in every other territory at the same time as the original releases, so why fumble it on the EU store yet again?
      In this case, I ended up saving money since had the bundle been there, I’d have bought it. As it is, I got the costumes I really wanted for less instead. In the end, it’s PSN and Koei/Tecmo losing out here.

    • I should add in the interest of balance that at least getting all the outfits and the catalog up in the same week as everyone else is a step in the right direction.

  • Thanks for the update! :D

  • Awesome ^_^ Minecraft PSvita ✌️✌️

  • No Nidhogg this week for us Euro-folk?

  • Any news on the call of duty advanced warfare digital pro edition???? Its nearly release day. Please respond Jawad.

  • Any idea when WWE 2K15 will be up for pre-order? It went up on the US store last week…

  • Minecraft Vita :D No Nidhogg :(

  • What should the price of Peggle 2 be? The store shows it as £9.99 but you list it as £7.99?

    • Apologies, the correct Peggle 2 £ price is £9.99. I will have the blog post updated ASAP.

    • Right so what’s the euro price? €9.99? Are we getting ripped off on the exchange rate yet again? It should be £7.99 as that is the exchange rate for €10

    • Now there isn’t a Euro price at all, just the Sterling price listed twice!

    • It was said before release that it would be £7.99 and if you watch the ‘Access’ video on the store it even shows the game on there and shows the price as £7.99, yet when you click through to the game page it has the price at £9.99!
      Come on Fred, you can’t suddenly decide to charge us £2 more than the price indicated, that’s just not on and is against trading standards. The least you could do is honour your original price.

  • Yahoooo! PS mobile games listed again!
    P.S play my Disillusions Manga Horror! ;P if you dare.. O_O

  • Time to buy senran kaura.
    BTW where can I preorder Freedom wars?I can not find anything about the release in Greece.
    Please don’t make it like Akiba’s trip which has not come here in retail.

  • Peggle 2 seems to be more expensive on the store than it’s listed as being here.

  • Hey Jawad.

    Do you, or any of the team, know when ZHP (Full title Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman) for PSP will return to the store / our download lists? It seems to have been taken down for the same hacking related reasons as Persona 2 was a while back.

    Also could we get a price drop on CLADUNX2? (another PSP game) Its been full price since it launched 3 years ago! :P

    Thanks in advance! :)

  • Peggle 2 is showing as £9.99 in the store, not £7.99 like on here.

  • The evil within Not available in QATAR !?

  • I thought we were getting Nidhogg this week. Man it’s a bummer when Europe/PAL suffer delays – it seems things are getting better in that regard, but every now and then and indie title slips through the cracks. I was really looking forward to Nidhogg.

    • Yep, me too, no 1001 spikes or pier solar and the great architects either……

    • No, it really isn’t getting better. It just appeared that way because TellTale started sending their games on time. Though they failed to do so for the TWD PS4 edition clearly as the US got it on Monday.

      They really need to streamline the QA process for EU because this really shouldn’t still be happening after 8 years…

  • It’s charged me £9.99 instead of £7.99 for Peggle 2!

    How can i get this sorted please?

    • You can’t – that’s the price and a lesson learnt for you! Always check the total of your basket before clicking purchase :-)

  • you too can be a racist homophobe with the all new duck dynasty game.

    on a more positive note, Minecraft for Vita, YAY.


    This week for me:

    – Minecraft Vita
    – Vib Ribbon Vita
    – €1 Freestyle Vita

    Love it when my Vita gets games!

  • peggle 2 is either priced wrong on here or the store.

    its £9.99 on store (im guessing this will end up being the right price)

    was castlestorm not already out on ps4 but it was £14.99?

  • Following titles getting on the SEN store?
    Final Fantasy Crisis Core
    Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
    Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (yes I know of 2.5 hd remake, but thats not playable on portable device is it? ;) )
    Tales of Eternia
    Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
    Valkyrie Profile Lenneth

    Why I keep asking, I got most of these on UMD, but I do not want to have to drag the PSP whit me in adition to the Vita. And for those that do not get remakes, it would be sad that people would not get to play them in the future. I adition, soon these could be fun to play on PS TV device. You know that poor device will need all the games it can get, just as the Vita..
    Any new information on Cross Region Gifting.
    Like steam have had for years.

    I do mean gifts would have to be purchased as gift. (not transfearal of used). Kind of like how I can order a physical version from US and use it, I want o be able to buy a digital version (or DLC) on a american account and gift it to my main account as to not have to logg different acounts to manage my games.. Or to send gifts to a friend, or recive gifts from a friend.

    Oh, and to anyone complaining about me reposting, if they (SCEE, Not other people) would just take time to reply, something like: We have brougt your suggestions to the correct people/departments. Id shut up (about the things in the post) for atleast a few months.

  • When minecraft vita was announced last week it said £12.99. Why is it now higher?

  • Sorry if I’ve missed this one, but how does Vib Ribbon work? The original allowed you to generate levels using your music CDs; does the download version let you do that as well (or least use media on the disk)?

  • Is the save from the original muramasa compatible with the complete edition?

  • Uploading PS3 Minecraft save games to Vita doesn’t work: “Upload Failed. Please try again later”.

  • Is Peggle 2 £7.99 or £9.99? i am still trying to get back money after purchasing a game that should have had 10% off and charged me wrong. Three weeks and still nothing, customer service is horrendous!

  • Good week all round this week. But no Nidhogg? =(
    Still, glad Minecraft: Afterthought Edition finally released.

    As ever, I’m going to ask for updates on Vita games that should have been out ages ago:

    -1001 Spikes
    -Mutant Mudds Deluxe
    -Dragon Fantasy Book II
    -Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD
    -Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition
    -Road Not Taken
    -BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma
    -Run Sackboy Run (this apparently came out in NZ on phones or something?)

    Many of these have been in cert for ages or been out in North America since forever ago.

    I’m also going to have to repeat myself on the issue of the Vita store – it’s a mess and it needs fixing.

    • Sony from japan will be coming to uk to knock on there door that there jobs on line since a agree 100% with you psn a mess and if they keep this up everyone going to sell there ps4 and buy xbox1 because will happen.

    • Duke Nukem 3D will be released once it passes certification in NA (passed already in EU).
      Road Not Taken wasn’t supposed to come ages ago as the developer didn’t confirm that it would be released along the PS4 version. Even knowing that, the developer is having problem with the Vita version.
      Give it time to Run Sackboy Run, after all it has to come before LBP3, so that it can do the marketing thing for them.
      As for Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee, it hasn’t been released because JAW is prioritizing the ports of New’n’Tasty to other consoles (including Vita) before this.
      BlazBlue’s status is unknown to me
      As for the others, “perks” of living in Europe (PEGI stuff, QA stuff,…)

    • The developers said they had no plans to make a Vita version of Road Not Taken.

  • The UK price for Peggle 2 is wrong on the store (£9.99 instead of £7.99) really keen to play this game, can you fix it please?

  • Is there no bundle for the dead or alive 5 halloween costumes?

  • Last week you said minecraft on vita would be £12.99 and you are showing it as £15.49?

  • Why is it that we’re four weeks on from the release, and Ar noSurge has still never been introduced to the New Releases page on the store? This is a niche game that needs all the exposure it can get, and making it so you can only find the game from searching is not helping it in the slightest.

    • SCEE does this all the time. The Vita store is full of ‘invisible’ games that can only be found by searching, including the Atelier games and Hotline Miami. Yet Sly Cooper 4 and Borderlands 2 have two slots for some reason. >__<

  • The Evil Within
    Not available in Norway

    …Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa… ?

    • Good thing you can only buy The Evil within season pass on PSN in Norway! Just make a US account, buy the game there for cheaper. You can use it on your main. Thats how ir goes when EU PSN are being stupid…..

  • Nidhogg eu release?!

  • I’m trying to download Minecraft for PS Vita. I already own the PS3 version on disc, so I should be eligible for the cross-buy promotion… but it’s still trying to charge me £12.99 for the PS Vita version. Anybody else have this?

    • Just to clarify, I’ve owned the disc for a few months now…

    • For anybody else wondering this, I’ve just got it to work.

      On the PlayStation Store, I noticed that there was a version of Minecraft PS3 that was free. I ‘purchased’ this but didn’t download it. Then the Vita version showed up free too.

    • I’ve got the same problem .It’s not showing up as few for the vita. (I tried looking for the free ps3 version as you mentioned. Only thing showing as free is the trail version)
      Tried calling psn support but was on hold 30 mins and give up.
      Where can I find the freeversion you mentioned? Was it via search?

    • I found the free version by searching ‘minecraft’ on the browser version of the store after logging in. Had to search through the page a bit first. After purchasing that (for free), the Vita version was free.

      I’d just updated Minecraft to version 1.80 on the ps3, so Make sure you’ve done that.

    • Didn’t work for me ;( mine craft on the store (via website and ps3) showed I can pay for it. The free option I couldn’t see.
      Shucks I brought the disk version after reading the cross buy.
      Had I know it would be so much hassle, I would have just brought it on the psn.

  • I bought minecraft ps3 disc a few weeks ago. Brand new. Trophies synced. Vita version does not show as free. Will i have to purchase it?

    • Yes you will. The cross-buy entitlements for disks required that you play ans sync trophies prior to the 28th of August.

    • I had this problem. This was the solution:

      On the PlayStation Store, I noticed that there was a version of Minecraft PS3 that was free. I ‘purchased’ this but didn’t download it. Then the Vita version showed up free too.

    • toxic-inferno

      That’s actually a bug, it’s not the solution and has most likely been fixed.

  • Jawad, could you please look into the missing Rocksmith DLC again please?

    The Shinedown Pack and singles were added, as were the the Creed singles, but the following are still missing:

    Creed Song Pack (individual singles are available, but the pack isn’t)
    Foreigner Song Pack (and individual singles)
    Blink 182 Song Pack (individual singles are available, but the pack isn’t)
    Megadeth Song Pack (individual singles are available, but the pack isn’t)
    “Tighten Up” – The Black Keys (was never added to SCEE region stores, yet it’s avail. on the AU XBOX Marketplace)
    “I Hate Everything About You” – Three Days Grace (also never added to SCEE region stores, available on every other platform in every region though)

    Here’s hoping the White Stripes DLC is available as posted.

    The posts of the previous weeks have listed the Creed and Foreigner content, but it’s yet to appear.


    • Just checked the AU and UK Stores. The White Stripes Pack and singles are there, but unfortunately still no sign of the Creed Pack (now 4 weeks late), Foreigner Pack or singles (now 2 weeks late) and the others I mentioned are over 2 years late. All of them are up on the US PSN Store, and on the AU XBOX Marketplace.

      Why is it that SCEE keeps making mistakes that lead to delays and missing content?

  • The Peggle price is wrong, Nidhogg isn’t there and we still haven’t got Driveclub PS+ edition.


    *That’s how this works, right?

  • And what about Jet Car Stunts? Why was not introduced last or this week?

  • Is there going to be any Horror/Halloween sale like there was last year? Would love to pick up a couple resident evil games.

  • Vib Ribbon not going to ps4 am i missing something here did said on news its coming to ps4 as well.

    Bye away Driverclub got to number 5 uk since review from gamespot got 5 lol.

    Next month another indie game on ps4 on ps plus what next gen this turn out to be a joke.

  • Where is The Walking Dead for PS4 ? Please give a date please PlayStation US and Xbox UK got Season 1 already

    • I don’t have a date to share at the moment.

    • thanks for the reply

    • pretty sure ign said Europe would get it 24th of October. just shows you if ign know more then these guys.

    • Why is it only scene seem to have these problems. No issues for Xbox, no issue for scea? Incompetence springs to mind. Not necessarily from jawad or Fred but whoever actually looks after the Europe region.

    • TellTale announced the release as 14th. MS dropped the ball and accidentally uploaded it on Monday, SCEA decided to follow suit a couple hours later, SCEE, wait for the actual date then nothing.

      In fairness though TellTale have form for announcing a PS EU release date then not actually sending the game for QA in time to meet that promised date.

  • Highly recommend Muramasa Rebirth and all relevant DLC. If you enjoy Hack and Slash games, gorgeous art style and Japanese culture you owe it to yourself to try the game.

  • Are we getting a digital pre order for resident Evil Revolations 2? I’m just curios because they announced the Throw back pack for PS3/PS4 and I’d be pretty upset to mis out on this because of Region.

  • Thanks for Vib-Ribbon, the price is just right. Already played through some of my CDs and had a great time.

    When can we expect more sales regarding PSP titles? Also, has there been any word about Class of Heroes 2?

  • “The bundle will be out later. The individual costumes are out today.” (DOA5U Halloween) and why?? why the EU people have to wait ever…. and buy separately is too expensive when we want many of the costumes!

  • Jawad, can you please fix the “October Price Crash” price for Touch My Katamari on the Australian store. – It’s still the original price of $24.95. Thanks in advance.

  • Vib Ribbon doesn’t download to Vita. Says it isn’t compatible with the system.
