  • And another week without any of the promised Legacy DLC for Rocksmith 2014. May we at least expect a statement on the matter? The content is overdue for months and neither customer support nor the Sony EU representatives on Blogs or Social Media provide any information on ETA or even reason for this issue. There is a massive backlog of content that people have already PAYED for, and the fed-up customers are simply ignored.

    • So here we are again – another week, another lack of Rocksmith legacy content. Complaints about this issue were the top ‘most liked’ comments last week yet went completely ignored. We deserve a reply – Ubisoft supplied the content to SCEE five months ago. We’ve paid for it, you owe it to us… or do we need to take the false advertising route and raise a complaint?

    • It would be very nice to have an official message and reasonable timeline… North America had theirs 3 months ago and more importantly XB1 remedy their problems within the week they are aware of a problem. I’ve been faithful to the brand and championed it at every chance, but this situation is turning me very sour. I’ve invested a small fortune in DLC and I would appreciate being able to use it as advertised.

    • I haven’t received any update on this, but I’ll try and chase up whatever I can.

    • I’d like to weigh in here and just say I ordered Rocksmith 2014 few days ago and it’s on the way now, but would like some statement on the matter too as I plan on buying songs. Also try do a DLC sale with those songs too would be nice. Thanks

    • Yet again no legacy DLC, absolute joke. I’m guessing we won’t get a reply to this either as Sony clearly aren’t bothered

    • Again, waiting for Rocksmith legacy DLC on PS4… ridiculous! What can be so complicated about making one bundle available in-store??

    • Oh great the response we get basically tells us nothing except you have been sitting on your thumbs over at SCEE. Give us some explanation for the delay Jawad its been 4 Months and your non response is the only response so far from its a joke

    • it is shameful #RSDLCScandal

    • Thank you, Jawad. I’m happy to see we got your attention. I apologize if some comments here do not comply with what general politeness dictates, but it is in fact a very old issue and so far SCEE has not been very communicative and some people are just kinda angry by now. I hope you can find out something for us, we’ll await your update!

      For all others, feel free to head over to for some general information on the matter! Also check for tweets and hashtag #RSDLCScandal and retweet. This should create the necessary awareness to support Jawad in his search for information! Thanks you! :)

    • I would suggest getting on the phone at SCEE and calling the department responsible for uploading content to the store Jawad. They tell you what’s going up each week so you must have at least one contact you can speak to… unless the info is delivered to you via carrier pigeon each week (would explain a lot).
      Once again – we have PAID for this content, so would appreciate a blog post explaining why we’re still waiting after four months and when we can expect to access our DLC. Not too much to ask, just basic communication.

    • What about the Rock Band 3 DLC that was meant to be available weeks ago???

      Arctic Monkeys – R U Mine?
      Avenged Sevenfold – Shepherd Of Fire
      Foo Fighters – Something From Nothing
      Tenacious D – Rize Of The Fenix
      Weezer – Back To The Shack

      Harmonix has apparently re-submitted the content to SCEE, but nothing seems to be happening with it. It’s available on the US Store, it’s also available worldwide on the XBOX360, so how about working with the developer and making the content available?

    • Jawad, we would all appreciate an answer regarding the Rock Band 3 content.

      Here are links to the official Forum threads so you can see for yourself as to what content was promised to everyone, everywhere on the PS3 and 360, but again SCEE has let us down.


      What is it with SCEE? Do they hate all games from the music genre?

      Why is it content is delivered without delay on EVERY other platform except the PS3 in SCEE regions?

      How is it that SCEA manage to get things right?

      I think we all deserve a reply and some action.

    • No excuses or hiding anymore SCEE, you’ve had plenty of time to upload the songs!

    • Maybe next week … 4 months , that’s amazing.

      Dan says is posible in the middle of march.

    • With the latency as it is I can not believe people are still enduring the ps4 version of this otherwise awesome game.
      Pc or Mac only got this !

    • Completely agree with this and the other posts like it. It’s ridiculous how SCEE have managed to take so long sorting this DLC out; the next game will probably be out by the time we see them surface. I could maybe understand if it was delayed for everyone but they’ve had it for months already in the US.

    • “I haven’t received any update on this, but I’ll try and chase up whatever I can.”

      No. Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

      And while you’re at it, make some noise about our missing Rock Band 3 DLC, too.

      To echo what’s already been said, what IS it with SCEE and music games, anyway?

    • Agree with all the above comments. It is appalling that there has been no substantive response to a problem that has gone on for four months. I hope that you can update us soon with positive news to confirm the DLC will be available soon. This whole thing, and particularly the abject lack of customer service has shaken my faith in a company I have supported since the original Playstation.

    • I too would like a statement for the content I have paid for and not received.

    • Terrible service Playstation EU! You can shove all your other content where the sun don’t shine cause your not getting another penny out of me until this is resolved!

    • +1 to this. I’ve bought and paid for DLC that I can’t currently download. Very frustrating. Even the import tool is missing… If you guys upload that thousands of us would instantly buy it so we can access our RS1 content on RS2014. Does Sony hate money?

    • We need answers, its been weeks questions have been ignored!
      When we have telephoned support we keep getting told its ubisoft’s fault, then after speaking with ubisoft we are told its Sony EU’s fault. American store has had this content for months, the EU team is made to look very amateur with this kind of delay. Why cant you just do your jobs?

    • Enough already, nobody is disrespecting you…

    • Enough already. Look, it’s not working, like most petitions. (sorry for double post)

    • Non mi costa niente metterla, se firmano bene, sennò di certo non muoio!

    • Non muori però continui a spammarla nonostante abbia ricevuto poche “decinaia” di firme nel giro di due settimane. A casa mia si dice che è un fallimento totale, altro che storielle del tipo “qualcosa è sempre meglio di niente”.

    • It’s too late for that now. The game is already out.

    • Per essere onesti , ci sono cose peggiori per lo spam , anche se si tratta di una causa persa . Non mi dà fastidio , a differenza di alcuni dei vetriolo che viene pubblicato qui di volta in volta …

    • ^ what the hell did i just read?

    • English people English. Whoever has made it this far down wants to read it too. lol

    • Gimme a translation Lance, will you?

    • This is why Sony were wrong to release a retail version of Freedom Wars. Forgetting that the game failed to chart at retail (due to the download being cheaper) it gave the expectation that self entitled Vita owners can get their way by hijacking threads and posting links to petitions.

      Granted, Sony deserve some stick for not making cartridges, but that’s only because they stubbornly refuse to reduce the price of memory cards or release the 64gb outside of Japan. If larger memory cards were available at reasonable prices then nobody would care about retail releases for Vita, its the one part of the PlayStation brand that has gotten downloads right.

    • @Mustang: a translation of what? You put the translated text here, you should know the original.

    • Of course, I was trying to say: To be honest , there are worse things to spam , even if it is a lost cause . Does not bother me , unlike some of the vitriol that is posted here from time to time…

      However, I presume it didn’t read that way to you, otherwise your…’what the hell did I just read’ makes no sense, so I was curious as to how it actually read. Did it say what I intended or was something lost?

    • i’m happy they DIDNT translate; they should do that more often! I don’t want to wait months longer for a release or pay more just because you don’t want to play the game in english.

  • The Helldivers price in the blog post is wrong

  • Helldivers – £16.99/€31.95
    Is that € price a mistake or some terrible joke?

  • Nice, thanks for letting me get comfy before posting. ;)

    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 transferral of used). Like how you can get physical copies from abroad, you should be able to get digital ones too.

    How soon are the 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 that’s not playable on portable device is it? ;) )
    Tales of Eternia
    Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
    Valkyrie Profile Lenneth
    Jeanne d’Arc
    Phantasy Star Portable 1 and 2

    Digimon World
    Digimon World 2003
    Dino Crisis 1
    Dino Crisis 2

    Why I keep asking (for the PSP ones), I got most of these on UMD, but I do not want to have to drag the PSP whit me in addition to the Vita. And for those that do not get (portable i.e., Vita) remakes, it would be sad that people would not get to play them in the future. I addition, 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.. Also added some games to the list by request.

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

  • And again no DOA5LR season pass for EU -.-

    • We are also missing all individual costumes – about 200 in total. North Americans got everything right since last week. I don’t know why there are always problems with KT and EU PSS.

    • there are always problems with SCEE not KT

  • And yet again there’s no Rock Band DLC, and no word why not despite them being submitted ages back. What is it with SCEE and this vendetta again music games?

    • Yeah, I know what you mean. Can we please get a response this week!

    • You will not be seeing a response. SCEE thinks that music games are dead, and treats them as such. Also, Harmonix are not that big of a developer, so their easy to poop all over all day every day every week. It is getting disgusting. Disgusting as in the customerservice at SCEE. Come on!

    • *they’re

  • Why release the DLC for Hustle Kings PS4 two weeks before the release of the game? O_o

  • Yay, more PDF2 song DLC!

    Shame it’s got the same issue as plagued previous DLC releases – in that it’s not showing up on my account as free, as it should as I’ve got the Song Club…

    I hope this gets sorted soon, I wanna get playing these two songs!

  • I’m going to download that BLADESTORM: Nightmare Demo. Don’t even know anything about it. lol. Just need a break from Evolve for a while. Tried OilliOilli2 and it’s really good! Never played the first and didn’t think I would like it but I admit my thoughts was wrong! Great little game!

  • Hustle Kings DLC on PS4? am i reading that right?

  • Can we please have an update on legacy content for Rocksmith and the new Rock Band 3 DLC? There are lots of people respectfully asking the same thing each and every week. It would be considered good customer service, as well as a common courtesy, to answer.

    • There have been a couple of replies regarding Rocksmith DLC. But the Rock Band DLC that should have been out in the second week of January is being completely ignored. That absolute opposite of customerservice.

  • Hi Jawad, last week i mentioned a bug with the Store on PC but you couldn’t help me at that time. Since i’m not going to copy-paste everything again, read these two threads:

    It’s all written there, fully detailed. The customer support doesn’t even know what i’m talking about. Please report it to the right people if you can. Thank you.

  • Please stop censoring the world “n o b o d y”, it’s not offensive!

  • Jawad, I have some questions for you regarding Dead or Alive 5 Last Round:-

    1) Costumes purchased for the PS3 version of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate should be available to download for free for the PS4 version of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round. This is not the case as the costumes are not coming up as free but as full price. The USA Playstation Store has this content available to download for free, when will this be available for all the european Playstation Store customers?

    Team Ninja also state on their official website FAQ page that the dlc should be tranfered between the games for free, so why is this not available? Europeans should not have to pay for download content twice.

    2) Patch 1.02 for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round should have been available to download as stated on the offical Koei/Tecmo Twitter but is not the case. When will us europeans get this patch?

    Please don’t ignore my questions, myself and a lot of disgruntled Dead or Alive fans would like an answer please.

  • DLC songs for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd aren’t free for people who purchased the Song Club pass. Again. Please fix this.

    • Looks like they’re fixed now! (at least, I’ve just grabbed both songs for free through the web store and now downloading them through the Download List on both consoles)

  • Can we please have an update on….
    1001 Spikes ?
    Mutant Mudds Deluxe ?

    I ask every week!!

    • Both failed QA.

    • Given that Assassin’s Creed Unity passed QA, I can only assume that any game which fails has an unavoidable bug that causes the game to leap from your PS4 and give you a swift kick in the shins

    • The question to which there is seemingly no answer!

      I’ve emailed and tweeted Jools Watsham about MMD (at least half a dozen times over the past 4 or 5 months) and have never received a single response. Ditto Tyrone Rodriguez re 1001 Spikes.

      Awful state of affairs really :-(

    • @steven

      Big multiplatform games aren’t allowed to fail QA. If SCEE failed ACU and Microsoft didn’t the game would end up exclusive for the duration of the time that Ubisoft took to fix it and have it tested again, assuming it passed.

      Also, I’m not entirely convinced that Unity would have failed Sony QA (I used to work in QA so I’ve seen the list of things that earns you a failure) and while there are many games that by rights should have failed but didn’t, I don’t believe Unity would be one of them, frame rate and missing textures aren’t covered in the lists at all. Its more stuff like having the text appear correctly in the proper language, repeatable crashes and the ability to progress through the game. More games fail for their menu screens than anything else.

    • If only Ubisoft delayed AC: Unity, the game wouldn’t be a glitch-fest at first.

      As for Mutant Mudds, their developer Renegade Kid is a really small studio.

    • I don’t think being a small developer is an excuse in the case Of MMD and 1001 as there are many tiny indie devs that have managed to get there games out in the EU on Vita.
      I’d rather just be told these games have been canceled than keep hitting a wall of silence.
      Real shame and no excuse for not communicating with fans and customers that want them to succeed.

      Sadly being a small eveloper isn’t an excuse, its a fully qualified reason. In order to get a game out on a PlayStation platform (Xbox too) you have to submit it for QA approval, and you as a developer pay a fee for this. If you fail QA then your game doesn’t get released, it gets sent back to you with the QA report detailing why it failed. You then have to fix those problems and send it back, paying another fee to do so (there is a discount on a second test) for a small time indie dev this can be the difference between breaking even and making a loss as the very small amount of hype you managed to build is gone and your game is suddenly going toe to toe with huge established franchises because your release date was pushed back.

      These indie guys have simply decided that they’ve missed their chance on PlayStation in Europe and moved onto their next game. Shame as I hear that indie games fail for the most minor of things while huge games are allowed to release with entire features missing. An example:

      Braid infamously failed QA because it didn’t have a “press start” screen before the game began, while Skyrim was allowed to pass QA despite half the menu being missing, as in not there at all, if you weren’t playing in English. That Skyrim bug wasn’t fixed for over three months, Braid needed the words “press start” adding to the first room before you could leave it before the game would even be given a release date. Double standards plain and simple.

    • @TrueMorton – those two posts were more interesting and informative than everything Sony have ever said on the subject of QA put together. Really good read

    • That’s a fair point and the extra cost and time are sure to be an issue. I though Sony had worked hard at improving this for indies ?
      There are so many similar indie type releases that make it through QA that I just assumed it would be a matter of time before these two games made it out.
      Some communication from the developers would easily solve this and stop me and others asking for updates that never appear.
      As for missing release windows….. Surely a release is better than no release?
      Both 1001 and MMD are well scored games, so again I’m assuming a EU release all be it late, would be better than ever??

  • Any chance Mortal Kombat Deception: Unchained (PSP), Mega Man X4 & X5 (PS1) & Hogs of War (PS1) will be released over here. I’ve emailed, FB messaged & tweeted Warner Bros UK, NetherRealm Studios, Ed Boon (MKD:U) & Capcom (MM) but it’s like talking to a wall. Hogs of War was Sony for the US release so asking here is the best place.

    I’ll appreciate any response.

  • The HBO Go is available for PS4 and PS3 in the USA. Any chance that it will be available for Europe? Thanks!

    • It’s a US only service. Don’t except to reach Europe.

    • You will need a cable subscription to HBO so please tell me how we could use it? (I don’t mean sarcastically, I would like to know haha)

    • @supersmith2500: The HBO Go is not a US only service, I have a subscription and I can use it in Europe via PC or Android.

      @RyanSufc1997: I have a cable subscription, so I can use it on PC or Android tablet, if PS3 had a HBO Go app, I could use it on PS3 too.

  • Bumper crop for Vita this week. Oreshika looks interesting.

    • Not many reviews out there though yet, buddy. Destructoid gave it a very healthy appraisal (along with an 8.5 score), but I’d rather see a few more before diving in. Tick tock…

    • I’m playing it right now and it’s great, worth a full 40 euro price.

    • @Aces73High – You also have Gamespot’s review (they gave it an 8, which is not bad considering that site’s standards)

  • I just want some new awesome avatars, please.

    • 100% agree. We get shafted as usual, ain’t getting my hopes up any more because all we are getting nowadays are non-gaming related avatars and NISA avatars.

  • Once again, Project Diva F2nd DLC isn’t free for season pass owners. Why does this keep happening?

    • It looks like it is, now (at least, I’ve just grabbed both songs for free through the web store and now downloading them through the Download List on both consoles)

  • Hi Jawad, and sorry for double posting. Any news about that bug with the PC store and the “page not found” messages whenever you try to filter the search? I remember you saying that you couldn’t replicate the issue, but trust me, the problem is real, and is worldwide.

  • Telltale collection is also out in the store today £79 with no heavy discount like Sony US and Microsoft! Also there appears to be a Lego games sale on too….Lego Marvel Heroes PS4 is £22 or 5 dollars?

  • Jawad. About 200 individual costume DLCs are still missing for Dead or Alive Last Round/Core
    Fighters. Could you contact Koei Tecmo in that matter? Because I couldn’t reach them myself. The
    DLC are available on the NA PS Store, so KT must’ve done something wrong again when applying
    content to EU PSS.

    • Unfortunately the problem is with SCEE, they’re the ones who actually upload content, set prices and so on. Or .. don’t, I suppose.

  • Zombie Army Trilogy??? How much??? US store is $39.99 (after PS plus discount). That’s £26!!!!!

  • is it just me or is the control scheme for olliolli2 about as intuitive as rubbing your belly and patting yourself on the head at the same time?
    maybe its because i spant so long playing tony hawk when i was younger….

  • Just so it gets noticed…

    What about the Rock Band 3 DLC that was meant to be available weeks ago???

    Arctic Monkeys – R U Mine?
    Avenged Sevenfold – Shepherd Of Fire
    Foo Fighters – Something From Nothing
    Tenacious D – Rize Of The Fenix
    Weezer – Back To The Shack

    Harmonix has apparently re-submitted the content to SCEE, but nothing seems to be happening with it. It’s available on the US Store, it’s also available worldwide on the XBOX 360, so how about working with the developer and making the content available?

    • It seems that they are not even reacting to the developers inquiries… So… Yeah

    • Well, Rock Band 4 was announced today by Harmonix AND SCEE on this very same blog.

      I really hope that all of our PS3 DLC is indeed available for use in Rock Band 4 on the PS4. It will be in the US, but I have my doubts with SCEE, particularly with how they’ve handled Rocksmith DLC on the PS4 and even the 5 or now 6 songs (including the free song “I Believe” by Frank Turner) that were released for Rock Band 3 this year.

      One of the devs at Harmonix has clearly stated this on the official forums…

      “Sorry, been slammed with PAX East prep. No new info at the moment. We’ve been reaching out to SCEE multiple times a week, every week, since the day the January DLC didn’t go live. We haven’t been getting any response, so it’s kind of out of our hands? Everything was submitted on our end, we’re just waiting for SCEE to push it live. If something needs to be fixed, we’re just waiting for them to tell us. We want the DLC up just as badly as you do, so you can trust that we’re working on it. As soon as I have more info I will be sure to shout it from the rooftops.”

      Any response to this Jawad?

  • I’m totally impressed with this update. Great update for the Vita, and I will check out Sherlock Holmes as well.

  • Hi,

    Any particular reason to why Starwhal isn’t available for most of europe?
    Will it ever be? If it’s getting released at a later date, will we get the chance to take advantage of the Playstation plus discount as well?
    Thanks in advance.

  • I’m really hanging out for the new Rock Band 3 DLC. I NEED IT. I NEED MY TENACIOUS D. I NEED THE D. PLEASE! I NEED TO KNOW.

    Anyway, an update on the status of the Rock Band 3 DLC would be very appreciated.

  • Getting fed up of Dead Or Alive content STILL being missing. I still can’t transfer my purchases from the PS3 version and there is still no season pass. How much longer do we have to wait?

  • Can anyone recommend Hatsune Miku Project Diva f for a rhythm noob like myself?

    I love Japanese cultuture and J-Pop, plus the art is adorable. It’s just that I’ve never been too hot at rhythm games. But Hatsune Miku seems to have a real cult following and I’m torn whether to risk diving in.

    If so, which do I get, the original game or Project Diva f 2nd?

    Thanks folks!

    • You could start with either, though apparently PDF is easier than PDF2… (I didn’t really notice, but I’ve been playing the series since PD2nd on the PSP, so I’m not quite as new to the series as some)

      So, yeah, could go with either game, (not sure which is cheapest, PDF is still £37 PS3 to download, though £16-ish Vita, but the Vita version has less songs than the PS3 one… PDF2 is £25/30 depending on whether your local GAME still has any copies, not sure on the download price)

    • I bought it on the sale (have vita for 2 months now) .. and its not bad.

      The screen is active (videoclip of the song in background) so u need to pay good attention to where the symbols are u need to click.

      Its not easy .. but its fun.
      Easy difficulty = 1 button + swipe on screen (for stars)
      Medium is 2 buttons i believe + swipe …
      so u can pick ur own skill and work up from there.

      It says 30 songs or so i believe .. but u start with 4 .. u unlock new ones as u play.

      Waiting for part 2 to go on sale aswell myself :)

      I dont regret getting it.

    • Oh forgot.

      Buy the FREE dlc for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd already. They are usually only free for a week or so .. and u can use it once buy the game (when its on sale of course)

  • Why is White Night 30% more expensive in the UK than in Europe? This is ridiculous pricing, we’re the same economic region.

  • Great store update, spent a pretty penny :P

  • LOL at STARWHAL availability. This is just sad. Next time you write blog post hyping some game please add availability so people won’t wait for nothing.

    • This is a serious question because I live in the UK I don’t notice the problem but does Xbox Live have the same problems with the availability of certain titles across the whole of Europe? or is it a SCEE thing.

      I mean MS manages to much the release dates for US/EU 95% of the time, so I can’t see them having the same sorts of problems but it’s interesting that SCEE seem to make such a mess of it.

    • Nope, it’s stricly SCEE issue. Xbox don’t have problems like this whenever I check availability there.

    • That makes it all the more painful to witness. Why would SCEE make it so complicated that it means games can’t be released in certain countries like this. It makes absolutely no sense what so ever. It’s about time they sorted it out by now.

      Especially with a evermore digital future ahead of us. Things like this are no acceptable to all.

  • Where is the game Hustle Kings for PS4 in the NL PSNstore?

    The DLC for Hustle Kings is already available for download , but not the game itself.

  • Telling truth dlc killing AAA games qnd dlc content needs go because be better place without dlc in game world.

  • I love seeing Vita in full force! Excellent crop of games, and we still got Hotline Miami 2 and Flame Over incoming :)

    Now, may I politely ask the administrators of this blog: is the Binding of Isaac Rebirth patch coming soon? It was released a few month ago in US… It’s my favourite game on Vita and in the current state it is impossible to complete and platinum the game.

    Pretty please, see what you can do to fix it :) Thanks!

  • Another week with no rock band dlc. seriously scee is treating their customers like they dont even exist. We are willing to give you our money and it seems that you dont want them. Silence is the perfect answer from a non-existing customer service.

  • What. Why is Hyperdevotion Noire not coming to New Zealand? We always get shafted like this, and I can never find a good explanation as to why…

    • It got rated R18 in Australia. Anything that gets rated R15 and up has to be submitted to the New Zealand Classification board. But if a game gets rated under R15, it can be released in NZ, that’s why we got htoLNiQ: The Firefly Diary but not Hyperdevotion Noire. Most devs just can’t be bothered with the costs of submitting a game to get rated for NZ.

  • Will FF:Type-0 be up for pre-order next week?

  • Nice, probably the best month for Vita in half a year. So much good games.

  • Digital prices remain a joke. I paid £21.99 for Zombie Army Trilogy on disc.

  • I have problem with +discount. When I put something(How to survive Storm warning Edition) to the basket the +discount dissapear ?!

    • I have the same problem. When you browse the store you will see the correct prices including the extra PS+ discount. But as soon as you place an item in your shopping cart it will show the price without the extra PS+ discount. So you’ll actually have to pay more. It seems that it only affects the ‘Digital Discounts’ section.

    • Problem seems to be fixed :)

  • Will the Resident evil revelations 2 demo ever be put on psn? It was meant to be out on Feb 22?

  • I’ll complain too: get the latest patch for Binding of Isaac: Rebirth working in EU!!!

    Americans already have that months ago and the Platinum trophy. Nicalis said they submitted the patch a few days ago, so approve it.

  • No statement regarding Rock Band 3 DLC again this week? It’s been out in the US since January 13th! That’s almost 2 months!!!! When are you going to show some respect for your customers SCEE?

    • You’d think with all the people asking about it they’d at least respond to one of them. It’s been the same for weeks. It’s starting to get really pathetic.

  • Were is Dead or Alive 5 Last Round for PS3?!?! ITS ALLREADY 2 WEEKS LATE. C’mon SCEE at least try, pick yourselfs up and do some work. Its anoying.

  • When I Buy FFXIV Do I Have Buy The Game Again Or Only The Subscription Of The Game And How Much Does The Subscription Cost

    • You have 30 days trial included with the game purchase. Subscription costs 10,99€ for 30 days. You can look for 60 days time cards – it should be cheaper.
