  • Any new information on Cross Region Gifting. Now, EU might be helping in a way whit some part of the legal issues preventing gifting of region locked games of this, as EU wants to ban Region-locking. (Just Google “The European Commission Wants To Remove Regional Locking On Digital Goods”).
    Like steam have had for years. And still do for gifts purchased from US-version.

    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
    Legend of Dragoon

    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.

    Second, For those recommending creating accounts in other territory’s, that is against TOS, and can result in account ban. (And it do not work on the Vita as its single account)..

    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.

    • Get a life, you fool.

    • “Oh, and to anyone complaining about me reposting, if they (SCEE, Not other people) would just take time to reply” Maybe if you contacted SCEE and not posted on the store update blog, you’d get answers. Can we step aside from this for a second: are you ok? Genuinely, this seems to be all you have to your life and to an outsider it’s a bit worrying. Maybe stop, or get some help, or find some new hobbies. Go out and take some photos, make new friends? This is so very tedious for all of us who read the blog because we ENJOY PLAYING GAMES and not whining like we’re entitled to something like a 2 year old child. You are being so cringing, so sad it’s really embarrassing for you. You’ll look back on this and be mortified.

    • I don’t understand people complaining about Shadowdragoon ‘complaining’. It is in no way offensive or aggravated, he just asks a question and would like a reply from Sony. People complaining about this should get a life themselves and not worry about some first post on this blog. If he would TYPE EVERYTHING IN CAPS or use offensive *** language, you’d have point. Now you don’t.

      Now all you’re saying is: as a customer you can’t have any suggestions or an opinion and can not post them freely on this blog. Especially because it might just be that Sony has some things to improve. No, we should be satisfied fanboys (don’t get me wrong, as an owner of all – and only – PS systems I count myself a fanboy too, albeit not a blind one) who should take and swallow anything Sony says. That’s just wrong if you ask me.

      @ShadowDragoon: could you add the Metal Gear Acid titles to your PSP section? I really enjoyed those games on PSP, but didn’t get to playing them again because I got a PSPgo after I sold my PSP (never should have) and I obviously can’t play them on my Vita.

      I think it’s great you keep asking Sony for this and admire your resolve, while being made for a lot of things on this blog on a weekly basis. I think it’s cool you do this in a decent manner and people shouldn’t get offensive because of it.

    • @paveman Thank you for the kind words.
      Also I have added Metal Gear Acid 1 & 2 to the list.

    • While i don’t like seeing this every week because some of the games listed have licencing issues while cross country gifting wouldn’t make the rating boards happy, i like the determination & persistence.

      I do think there is a major issue with publishing within the EU & the whole system needs a massive reboot as it’s BS the amount of times we get screwed over, however it’s not completely Sony EU’s fault, it’s PEGI, USK (german’s board) & the publishers. Sony’s problem seems to be the lack of communication though i don’t believe that’s Jawad or Fred’s fault but the rules set by the higher ups, could also be what they said before, if there is no info share there is no point responding which is fair & makes sense, just maybe respond once every 2-3 months for games still having issues but are taking ages to be resolved such as 1001 spikes for example.

    • @paveman: thanks for contributing with a nice bunch of nothingness. Now, pack your moral crap and take it elsewhere, please.

      Is it that hard to understand that EVERYTHING he’s asking for CANNOT BE DONE?

    • For anyone complaining about ShadowDragoon, I complete agree with him. Week after week I seek an asnwer to why these titles are not available digitally. I would literally buy all of them. I’m not even joking.

      Infact, I was really angry when I spent months petitioning to see Silent Hill Origins and Shattered Memories re-released for PSP. Desperate to play them on my Vita, I downloaded them and they weren’t even Vita compatible. Even though they were advertised as being Vita compatible, they weren’t. Money and trust lost for me.

      Konami’s fault, I know. But SCEE could have at least attempted to get these games to work with the PSP emulator used by Vita.

      Keep posting Shadow. I’m waiting for the answers too my friend.

    • Thankfully your post is well funded and not offensive in any way. AND THANK GOD YOU FOUND CAPS LOCK ON YOUR KEYBOARD. I mean: seriously: is that necessary?

      I just don’t see how complaining about someone else’s post is less embarrassing than the post itself.

      As for your comment that does make sense: you say it’s impossible, I don’t see why it should be impossible. I know there’s legislation, developer issues etc. etc. that come into play, but why degrade Sony to your local grocery store that don’t have a say in anything that happens concerning these issues. If you could please explain why you think this really is impossible, I’d be prone to think differently.

      I’m not a moralist in any way, but I do try to treat others with respect, even though I am posting relatively anonymously on an internet site.

      Just saying: how is posting a reply on someone’s weekly post not more pathetic than the post itself??? I would respect you wanting to do that if it would actually contribute something, but ‘Pathetic’ and ‘Get a life, you fool’ being your latest posts this and last week… Sorry to say I find that waaaay more pathetic than Shadowdragoon’s posts.

      @SD: no prob dood. Like I state above: even if it might be useless, at least you’re trying and your posts actually have something to say. Doesn’t matter it says the same thing week after week, at least it has some content. I can’t help but get annoyed at people complaining about people complaining. Now I’m even complaining about people complaining about people complaining… I shouldn’t have bothered, I know…

    • @paveman: Meh.

    • The saddest thing about this are the multiple grammar errors copy-pasted week after week.

      This individual and his troll army are taking away attention from current issues like Shovel Knight being delayed.

    • @Shadowdragon – whilst it’s true that people are being mean… it is also true that if you spread this passion across a few other things you’ll be less bothered about some of these points, which probably wont be addressed & live a richer life. Learn bookkeeping or something (I work in accountancy)? Pays well, great for nerdy enthusiastic people, and they make you do like 15 exams. :)

    • I don’t mind if someone has an actual problem that needs resolving, but having the “determination and persistence” to simply press CTRL+C and CTRL+V every week is spam. Pure and simple.

      Sorry, where was I… SUPER DRAGON!

    • @paveman Respecting others is all good, but someone who intentionally spams the same week after week in the most read blog post doesn’t deserve it.

      It does more harm than good. As you said this is a public forum and people have the right to express dislike towards this individual.

    • I already have Xenogears
      Dino Crisis 1
      Dino Crisis 2
      Legend of Dragoon on my psp thanks to my usa account just make one for gods sake glad I did

    • you can get digtal ones abroad set up a usa account done

    • @ZenXRoss “Can we step aside from this for a second: are you ok? Genuinely, this seems to be all you have to your life and to an outsider it’s a bit worrying.”

      Please get some perspective. Someone making a post weekly does not in any way suggest that it’s all they do in their life.

      @Lethalx08 “I do think there is a major issue with publishing within the EU & the whole system needs a massive reboot as it’s BS the amount of times we get screwed over, however it’s not completely Sony EU’s fault, it’s PEGI, USK (german’s board) & the publishers.”

      I see rating boards getting a lot of flak every time there’s a problem with a European release, and it’s unwarranted. The only problematic rating board is Australia’s.

      The real problem is that every country has their own store, making publishers jump through hoops at least a dozen times just to get their game added everywhere. As a result, some publishers don’t bother and I think that’s why you regularly see things like “Not available in: (bunch of countries)”. This, coupled with Sony’s store mismanagement is why things are like they are today.

      @Lance_87 “Is it that hard to understand that EVERYTHING he’s asking for CANNOT BE DONE?”

      The only tricky thing to implement would be gifting. Everything else is very doable.

      @Callofduty1 “you can get digtal ones abroad set up a usa account done”

      Shadowdragoon already addressed this. It is not a solution that works for everyone, and Sony could ban that account at any moment for breaking the ToS.

    • For the love of all that is holy, will someone at SCEE please reply to Shadowdragoon, so these issues can be put to rest.

    • I assume you have contacted the publishers of those games.. Lets see Square Enix..Sega …Bandai Namco…Level -5…Ignition Entertainment…Capcom?

      And you do understand that when these games were made they were released on physical disc media…which predates digital distrobution in some cases? Therefore no-one has ever said they would be released for Vita and PSTV when the games originally came out for their respective systems?

      You also know that lisencing issues are common with games that are up to 10+ years old?

      It would be nice to have an eco system of games available on all Playstation consoles but you seem to lack common sense with these posts.

      I’ve priced up all of those games… if I wanted all of them on PSP and Psone it would cost £120~ do yourself a favor and get them and quit the moaning. Maybe we could rally round and chip in for you ;)

    • Don’t you think the complete lack of response is an answer in itself? Cross region gifting is very unlikely to happen, too much weird licensing crap, and you might just have to accept those games are never going to turn up on the European (or whatever) store…

      And, just asking, have you emailed Sony support, or do you just post in here every single week?

    • @RappyPhan I take your point, but posting this again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again gets a little tedious to be fair. My point is that if they just picked up the phone, or directly contacted SCEE they may get answers to the few things that SCEE would actually be able to answer, than posting this all the time. I asked if the OP is ok as it has gone on for far too long to be normal. All sensible suggestions are being ignored, and they just keep it up.

      I have plenty of perspective, I’ve seen this obsessional behaviour many times before. Many times.

      For the person saying it’s as pathetic to reply to him: yeah it is a bit, but I’m allowed to express my discontent with this pathetic show. Your reply to our replies is every bit as pathetic, so welcome to our level mate. We’re all in a glass house here, if you’re going to throw stones expect some breakage. I’m happy to watch it all fall apart. My concern is about the OP, and the fact I have to see this rubbish on every update. It’s so cringing. I genuinely wanted to be helpful, but it’s a free world and every can embarrass themselves every week if they want to, you and I included.

    • My first reply to Shadow has been upvoted 78 times as of now. I guess there are 79 “pathetic” individuals :D

    • Don`t forget “Secret Agent Clank” which isn`t out either! :P

    • lol, here’s another one…

    • 1) Use proper spelling and grammar if you’re going to post this all the damn time. It looks really bad. 2) Find some more hobbies. 3) The fact that Jawad and others have replied to my comments, and other people’s should tell you that you will be blissfully ignored by them as it’s not in their hands to deal with this. 4) Learn to use a telephone or email and contact the publishers of those titles, and call Sony to see who you should talk to. 5) Your posts are toxic and polluting the blog. Gamers get a bad rep and this sort of thing is just more fuel for the fire. You make me embarrassed to enjoy video games.

      @Lance_87 well said my man, you are talking some sense! Your first reply puts it better than I ever could!

    • @ZenXRoss Sorry about spelling and grammar errors, English is not my native language (and add Dyslexia to it), so there are going to be some errors, I have run it thru spell-checker in Word (British English), Feel free to point out errors and how to correct them.

    • Well, you’ll still need to get a life. Don’t try to justify your actions.

  • I thought Shovel Knight was delayed til tomorrow?

    • That was yesterday, when people who don’t know how store updates work complained we weren’t getting it at the same time as America

    • Their twitter (Yacht Club Games) says delayed in the EU until the 23rd (Thursday). The link above is dead, and searching for the game hasn’t shown it being available for me.

    • Hi Jawad, the link for Shovel Knight does not work. I have searched the store, but it is not showing. Yacht Club Games on Twitter said it would be tomorrow (Thursday the 23rd).

    • Actually, scrub that, it’s not on the store yet so you’re probably right

    • Yes, this will be out on 23rd April (tomorrow).

    • I’d say it’s Sony who don’t know how store updates work, who can’t or more likely won’t work to a unified pricing policy, who omit sections of the store from the full web/mobile/ps4 specific version. At least when I had an Xbox 360 this was all dealt with on an even footing. I’m pretty sure this region pricing and even regional content locking impacts on store sales and communication is poor to non existent. Get your house in order Sony, that #4theplayers line is becoming a bare faced lie!

  • ROCK BAND 3 DLC???!??!

  • SONY,

    • IT

    • Doesn’t people follow the publisher’s Facebook or Twitter… Nicallis have already said 1001 Spikes + other games i can’t remember & may just be Nintendo only (pretty sure 1 of them is the X1/3DS/Wii U Binding of Isaac port) will be coming later this year to EU. IIRC they said Summer. It’s currently Spring so don’t expect any time soon (except BoI Rebirth other platforms, that’s suppose to be May)

    • Why don’t the developers re submit it??
      They have since released other games in the EU.
      You would think it would be worth the effort as its a decent game worthy of release and surely there would be profit in it??
      Such a shame really.

    • Because devs can only submit twice for free.

    • I know it failed twice the QA test, but I want Sony to say something about it or much better : to DO something to help the game coming in Europe as they said !

  • Hey! When do us Skullgirls players get Beowulf? It was meant to be out last Friday!

    • Delayed again. That’s all the info I obtained.

    • This. Lab Zero said today & weren’t happy with the last minuite delay due to the lack of communication & it’s not even listed. Come on Sony EU, not responding to us is one thing but not doing it for the publishers/developer is something else..

    • As ever, your informative response has duly enlightened me and renews my confidence in your service. Such care! Such candour! Such brevity!

    • You guys need to improve your QA. All those constant one-minute delays is getting old.

    • Sony EU… I have no idea what the hell these people are playing at.. Lab Zero submitted Beowulf last week and no response or should I say LACK OF from SONY EU…………………. Complete and utter joke..

    • Lab Zero updated –

      “EU PS3 Beowulf Update
      Sony Europe has inexplicably delayed Beowulf again, once again without telling us.
      Obviously this is unacceptable, and we’re escalating the issue to get him out as soon as possible.
      Once again, sorry for the confusion surrounding Beowulf’s EU release.”

  • I thought Oddworld for PS3 was going to be released today. Oh well, it’s just an extra day. Also will it get the DLC like the PS4 version?

  • ziggurat 18€ vs 15$ en usa store… good conversion
    damm only LACOPS 14€ vs 15$ pickup in european store, the rest US

    • hmmm, normally I wouldn’t refute this but ummm could you explain to me how someone who lives in Russia would give SCEA money when its come out at Wikileaks that they are in collusion with the US government to counter PR from both those people who like to cut off heads and dip them in Nutella (a brutal terrorist group) and RT (Russia Today news channel) for providing a different scenario of what is happening in eastern Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Yemen etc are somehow similar and both are construed as a threat to the US.

      Personally I have a problem with equating a shirtless Putin bear wrangling to a group that thinks they need an encore to the Inquisition (What a show).

      This isn’t a criticism, just curious

    • It’s supposed to be €15 but SCEE screwed up the price.

  • When Gradius V (PS2 Classic) will be released?

  • Still no Goro DLC for Mortal Kombat X? Come on…
    But hey, US Store has it. Who cares about EU?

    • Yes it’s very disappointing, particularly when other regions and platforms have it available for purchase. I can’t say that I am surprised though – poor form.

    • Even the EU XBL marketplace has it for £3.99 , but as usual no word from SCEE.

  • Glad to see you’ve been working hard to get the Rocksmith DLC up to date, however we’re not through the woods yet as we still have a few issues, missing tracks and packs and we’re still waiting for the Rocksmith 1 import tool. Hopefully we’ll be able to put the various issues we’ve had behind us after the next week or so – please don’t give up when we’re so close!

    • To whoever on the PS Store team thats responsible, BIG Thank You for the long overdue progress you have made over the past few weeks! You have made the EU/PS4 Rocksmith community a lot happier.

    • Great to finally see progress with Rocksmith content on the PS4 after what…. 6 months?

      How about showing some love for the Rock Band 3 content we should have had in Jan/Feb/Mar this year?

      Jawad, it would nice if you would actually respond to this issue!

    • Sorry, I’m later than usual. My big thanks as well, for the progress made in the past weeks. Rooting for you to keep that solution oriented mindset, keep posting the missing content and fix cross buy issues as you have been doing in the past days! :)

    • Well after some good progress that’s a mediocre effort this week.

      Surely by this stage you could just put up the remaining content in one go.

      I don’t even mind if it all goes up and you fix the permissions throughout the week like you did with the last batch. At least they (mostly) work now.

    • I really appreciate the recent efforts and it’s awesome to finally have access to our things. Now how about ending it off with a bang and upload the rest including the RS1 import tool. We are all soooo looking forward to putting this behind us.

  • Guys, as excited as we all clearly are. Shovel Knight is released tomorrow. Im usualy a huge fan of the work you guys do on the blog but please get this sorted so people dont take a fit in the comment section.



    if microsoft can do it you can too

    • I know right!!!
      it’s such BS we have to wait for no reason to wait other than “we do store updates on wednesdays”
      and now, not only shovel knight would be 1 day late, it’s not even on the store!! so we wait 2 more days!

  • Well Tropico 5 should be in the post and of course there are more monsters to bully in Toukiden Kiwami…not to mention Ukiyo no Shishi to fill the hours until store update next week


    any news on when both Onigiri and Hatoful Boyfriend will be released on the store? My Singing Monsters…will we ever get it?

  • What about Borderland collection for Qatar and pre-order

  • @Fred
    @anyone on PS Blog
    (copied from previous thread, maybe this time someone will notice)

    would it be possible to add to PSN shop page (PC) option to change language of description? Right now whenever I visit PSN it automatically display polish language. That would be fine and dandy… if only polish translation didn’t have so many mistakes included (and I’m quite sure other translations are the same)

    Look… in original description of The Teltale Games Collection it is says:
    – Tales from the Borderlands (Episodes 1-2 available now, Episodes 3-5 to be released periodically)
    – Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series (Episodes 1-3 available now, Episodes 4-6 to be released periodically)

    In polish translation there is:
    – Tales from the Borderlands (Episody 1-2 już dostępny, Epizody 3-5 być okresowo zwolniony)
    – Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series (Epizody 1-3 już dostępne, Epizody 4-6 być okresowo zwolniony)

    It’s google translation -.- “okresowo zwolniony” means sometthing entirely different than “to be released periodically”. It means that those will be “excluded for time period”

    It’s confusing… and it’s not the first time there are mistakes. Last time during sale Tales of Hearts R description said that there are included only DLCs in package.

    Right now to check the true (english) meaning I need to open a private session so that page won’t redirect me to polish site. Please try to do something about it, mkay?

    Oh btw. one more thing.
    Maybe it would be also good idea, to create some sort of official platform for translation? I mean place where publisher would be able to ask gamers for translating description page? I can do stuff like this for free in my free time. That way publisher wouldn’t have to use google translate nor pay for something which can be acquired for free? And I know that it is massive pain to translate description to every EU language… plus… nobody even reads those descriptions…

    • Actually to get around that (I’ve had it load GB store page when looking at an item on US blog) is to go to google search for the US or GB or JP store and load it that way. I’m guessing its based on whatever cookies are stored from your region store.

      I wouldn’t offer to do it for free…translations that is, especially to a corporation. Being multi-lingual is a skill and one should be compensated for even if the only pay you make is a free copy of the game

    • Delete PS Store cookies in your browser and use another store domain (!/en-pl/home). If you using this address you have access to our polish shop with original english translation.

  • What about the Rock Band 3 DLC released months ago on the US PSN Store and WORLDWIDE on the XBOX 360 Marketplace?

    Well Jawad? Could you at least please acknowledge the issue and look into it?

  • Are we ever going to get the missing Rock Band 3 content? Or even a statement about what the problem is?

    Glad to see in the meantime the Rocksmith catch up is continuing. Any update on the Import tool?

  • Hmm, if we ain’t getting the recent Rock Band 3 DLC, I’m already getting skeptical about how well supported Rock Band 4 will be in the Euro/Aus zone when it’s released…

    • It’s a real worry.

      We’re getting ignored by Jawad, Fred and Chris whose idea of customer service is to ignore the most frequently asked questions/reported problems and respond to them… At least acknowledge the issue and inform the PSN Store team that content that should be available, isn’t.

      Harmonix have contacted SCEE on a weekly basis since the January content was released and they too are being ignored. C’mon Jawad. Out of all of the posts each week regarding the Rock Band 3 content, you’ve responded 0 times.

  • Is all of the content that’s supposed to be released today already visible in the store? Cause I’m not able to see the Ha2une-module. Or was this also delayed until tomorrow (US got it last week) for no real reason?

    • So even when they have an extra week to put it up on the store, they still bugger it up? The number of times content is missing or incorrectly priced for Project Diva F 2nd is stupefying. There is someone seriously incompetent on the case here Jawad!

    • Looks like they botched the DLC again. Sigh.


  • Anyone else got “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China” for free? I wonder why?

  • Where is shovel knight? :-/

    • Tomorrow as stated by Yacht Club Games on various social network sites. Sony should have mentioned it but this is Sony EU, they rarely include extra infomation :/.

  • Also, Gradius V is out as a PS2 Classic, playable on PS3. If these jokers aren’t going to tell you, I will, because it’s brilliant. £7.99 UK, whatever it is elsewhere.!/en-gb/games/gradius-v/cid=EP0101-NPED00295_00-GGRADIUSVX000001

  • Rocksmith 2014 dlc System of A Down song pack is still asking for me to pay for it even though I have it on PS3. still at least most of my songs have crossed over but seriously its been 7 months and you are still having issues and still no sign of the import tool.

  • Shovel Knight & hopefully Beowulf for me. Still would like MK Deception: Unchained bringing over but that’s Warner & they don’t seem to give a crap despite them already releasing it in America.

  • shouldent there be some drive club dlc today ?

  • Why in the hell is Dead or Alive Last Round, Ninja 2015 DLC free in the Asia territories but here in Europe or America?! Are team ninja and SC just so greedy of money? this is not fair to the players in this side or in the US. Im sick of this game trying to make me pay for everything in its 4º release. So sick of it.

  • Hey guys, just to mention you left out metal slug 3! From your list!

  • hi there, sorry to insist, I have 7.4e on my account, when I try to purchase doa5 for vita it seems the price is 4e, until I go to checkout, sadly the price moves to 8 but, most strange, even when it’s requesting to refill my wallet, the program shows 3.40 after a 8e purchase.
    It seems it’s some kind of problem, not a delayed refresh. Please be so kind to check.

    Nice discounts by the way, if doa5 it’s really on 4e, I will gladly spend the rest on capcom classics or power stone collection.
    More psp discounts will be welcome by vita owners, since there are no new AAA games coming, we will stick to psp AAA by the way….

  • Oh come on, STILL no word nor acknowledge concerning Rock Band 3’s missing DLC?

    Look, you guys finally pulled out the stops to get the Rocksmith situation sorted (largely anyway), but I can’t help but wonder if it was only because people had to resorted to reporting the situation to various Trading Standards authorities (and with damned good reason, too).

    Is it going to require further outside action on our part just so you guys get your butts in gear and give us what other terroritories and systems have had back in JANUARY?! Sadly, I somehow suspect so…

    I fear Rock Band 4’s release here in Europe. I really do. smh.

    • Yeah, we as individuals need to take action and bring this to the attention of our country’s authorities.

      Jawad certainly isn’t helping the situation by conveniently avoiding to respond to the most asked question each week.

      Perhaps we can gather enough momentum for a class action suit against SCEE for its conduct?

      Not only do we have to wait in silence, plead and beg for content to appear, but when it finally does, it’s far more expensive than it is in the US for that exact same content (even factoring in currency exchange rates, fees and whatnot).

      If Jawad, Fred and Chris operated a bricks and mortar store and offered the same level of customer service, their collective behinds would be fired and/or the business would go bust.

      Microsoft and Steam can deliver content WORLDWIDE on the same day, yet Sony can’t (or won’t). Not good enough. We as customers have had enough of your disrespect and disregard.

      A delay of a week or two is unfortunate yet understandable, but to not have this and other content available for a period of months, and remaining silent on the issue, that’s unforgivable.

  • Metal Slug 3 for psvita/ps3 when?

  • There’s a couple of games here that are priced above when their developers quoted in their promo posts earlier in the month. Looks like a perfect opportunity to drop this:

    The price of games in the EU region compared to the US has been a hot topic for years and you have always said that publishers set their prices on the PSN. Well several games in recent weeks have come in at new even higher conversion rates, approaching 1:1 in the UK even. This has lead to the the price question being asked in almost every game announcement post made by the many indie devs who have been allowed to promote their game here. Well, the few that have answered have been quite enlightening, it seems that many indie developers simply don’t know the price of their own games in the EU region. His can that be if they are self published? Surely as the publisher they told you (SCEE) the price the game is to be sold at?

    Care to offer your thoughts on the matter?

    • Heck, I’m more worried that games like Infinity Runner are more expensive on the PS4 over the XB1. The XB1 version released at the same time is only £5.XX something. That’s another worry.

    • The developer of infinity runner promised in his blog post here a month ago that it would be “a fiver or less”yet here it is, costing a lot more.

      LA Cops was announced like three days ago with a price of £10.99.

      I can list a good half a dozen other indie games on just the PS4 that have launched at prices higher than their own developers, who are also the publishers, have told us they would cost.

      So, where does that leave the whole ” publishers set prices “claim that the SCEE blog team keeps repeating? While I’m perfectly able to believe that this was once the case it seems pretty clear to me that right now SCEE are in direct control of the prices we pay and are pushing them upwards.

    • For example , Brawl is made in poland and is a remaster of the terrible basement crawl. Brewl is $15.99 with the original game free in American store , while its €19.99 here
      Greed much anybody.

  • Can’t wait for Shovel Knight! I was hoping to buy it this instant but I can wait a day… btw what happened to Plants vs Zombies Vita? why it has been removed from the store??? :/

  • I need to tell you something, Why the day delay for New & Tasty PS3 and Shovel Knight?

  • Can anyone shed some light on us still being unable to buy Terraria at the moment? It’s been a week and we still can’t purchase it, it still comes up with the “We’re sorry, this product cannot be purchased at this time” excuse.

    • I’ll have it looked in to.

    • Any chance you can also look into the incorrect pricing on Infinity Runner and LA Cops. And if you’re going to claim that “publishers set prices” or that they made some sort of mistake then I refer you to my post just a couple of inches up from this one.

      It’s pretty clear that something is going on with pricing and that SCEE are part of it.

  • Rock Band 3 DLC?

    It’s like the store team wants to prevent any purchases of RB4 for the PS4 in Europe.
    I am coming from the 360 – is it normal that the dlc always is delayed that much? On the 360 all DLC tracks for RB1/2/3 was downloadable on Tuesday, worldwide, never with any problem in supplying.

    • I’ve been downloading RB content since the launch of the first game. Granted, I bought the first on in the US and used a US account and the SCEA store for a while, but switched to the EU version and store after a bit. To my recollection, there may have been a few tracks/packs delayed by a week or so over the years, but this is pretty much unprecedented.

  • Finished work and rushed home excited to spend an evening on shovel knight and delayed till tomorrow :-(

    • Yet zero mention of that here on the blog post. Weird how that happens. I feel like Sony should employ someone to communicate with its customers. What’s the harm? Is anyone going to run and jump off a cliff if it’s written in the post that it won’t be available till tomorrow? Why is it preferable to make people search on the store themselves to no avail? The operations of the European Playstation Blog are an absolute mystery.

  • Any reason why Crash Bandicoot and all three Spyro games have been completely delisted from the Australian PSN? Also Vib Ribbon still cannot be found months after launch. Thanks.

  • PSOne related stuff:

    • Not the only one, I’m still wondering why Crash 1 and the Spyro titles separately still not fixed despite the PSVita’s is still broken to use. And oh, gotta love those constant connection timeouts. It’s not just AUS, the UK has that problem too.

  • G.G.G.GRADIUS 5 ??????….
    Best shooter ever , worth every penny!! HURRAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Will Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China ever come to Vita? I’ve heard rumours but nothing more…

  • I had spaghetti bol for tea whith fresh chives ,just a dash eeeeemmmmm ,it was tasty ,unlike this store update.

  • That’s my evenings plan out the window then (Shovel Knight) I’ll survive though, still other stuff to play.

  • Hi guys could you please tell me why Brawl won’t be available in New Zealand? Has it been classified and given a rating for NZ

  • A delay for Shovel Knight and no word? Cmon Sony you should really communicate better. And stop this staggered releases nonsense.

  • So I get home from work an hour ago to find the store is undergoing maintenance !! on a store update day? nice one!

  • So I get home from work an hour ago to find the store is undergoing maintenance on a store update day!! nice one
