Plus, Grand Theft Auto V is the latest deal of the week

It’s a big week for PlayStation gamers, with some massive franchises returning to our screens. Pick up Destiny: The Taken King, the must-have next chapter in Bungie’s epic space FPS. Or if you are into your sports, we have the next iterations of PES and NHL, as well as Rugby League Live 3 all launching this week.

It’s a fairly quiet week for discounts (though take note of our deal of the week on Grand Theft Auto V on PS4) but if you missed out on some of the biggest PS3 titles first time round, make sure you stop by PlayStation Store as we’ve dropped the prices of hundreds of titles.

  • Deal of the week is a game at 55.99€… Wow that is sad to read.

    • Some people suggest it’s to appease retailers but that wouldn’t explain how the U.S. And Competitors often get better prices.

      Others say the publishers set the price but that’s illegal (retail price maintenance- Apple got I trouble for it over books a few years ago)

      It’s just greedy

    • Except the publishers do set the prices. Please explain who else does if you know otherwise.

    • Furthermore.. last week’s deal of the week was a 50€ game.. lol.

    • The US get GTAV for $47,99 (£31) and borderlands 2 on the Vita for $10 (£6.50) and we get this. Ugh.

    • MS has the same deal (also 55.99 euro), so I guess it has more to do with R* then something else.
      I do agree it is not really a deal as it is cheaper to buy the game on disc.

  • Can the missing Rayman / Rayman 2 titles on the Belgian PS Store get looked at please? I know they’ve been there in the past and some of us didn’t get to pick them up in the sale because they’ve just vanished.

    Thanks in advance.

    • While you’re at it, please bring back the Disgaea 2 (PSP) DLC that has disappeared for quite some time now. Lots of stuff has disappeared, in fact, that used to be there and still is in other (European) countries.

  • Did you fix Curses N Chaos’ price yet? The developers say the £11.99 is wrong!

  • Is Tuesday the new sale update day then? if so thats great!

    Obviously you’ll never see GTA V at a “cheap” price. Still sells like hot cakes.

  • Is the PES 2016 Release Date in Australia the 17th September or 22nd September? Here says 17th, the store itself says 22nd?

  • Any news about Harvest Moon: Back to Nature?

  • Hi there, Chris, Fred or whoever is going to reply.

    During the past weeks, i’ve tried to report a couple of issues with the Store and/or PSN, but as of today, nothing has changed, and no one replied. All attempts to contact the Customer Support brought to nothing except a truckload of unprofessionality. Could you please take a look at it?

    1) One of the DLC for the PS3 title “Ridge Racer 7” doesn’t seem to work anymore. The content is named “Decal Set 13” or “Set13 Decal Ridge Racer™7” or “PAC-MAN Sticker Set” (there are 14 “Decal Sets” for this game, but the ones from 11 to 14 change their name in the Download List for whatever reason, not important anyway). Anyway, this “Decal Set 13” used to work, but now it doesn’t anymore. I can get it, i can download it, i can install it, but the game doesn’t seem to see it. It’s like it’s not activated properly. It definitely used to work before. All other DLC for this game definitely works. Please take a look at it. The problem, again, is in the UK and all the other European versions of the Store. And possibly worldwide, but please, take a look at it.

    This is the content i’m talking about:!/en-gb/games/addons/ridge-racer7-decal-set-13/cid=JP0700-BLJS10001_00-PDECALSE13000013

    I’ve already tried everything, including:

    – Formatting the HDD and restoring everything
    – Deactivating/Reactivating the system
    – Using another account/profile (DLC is region-free)
    – Deleting the savegame (i wanted to restart the game from scratch anyway)
    – Redownloading the content and reinstalling the game

    The problem is the file itself, it’s not recognized by the game. Even the size is wrong compared to other DLC of the same type. Again, it can be downloaded, it can be installed, it’s just not working in-game.

    I also wonder if others have the very same issue, because nobody ever said “yes” or “no”, they just ignored my messages or posted unrelated feedback.


    • Sorry for the comment being split in two. Anyway:

      Again for Ridge Racer 7, several pieces of DLC have disappeared from purchase, from all the non-UK European Stores:

      – all 20 extra music tracks and the complete bundle with all of them (these have different bundles in the UK store, 4 with 5 tracks for each pack, while in the rest of the world, there are 21 downloads, 20 music tracks and a “complete bundle”)
      – Decal Sets 11, 12 to 14 (i have them but still… also they brought back only Set 13 but i reported the other DLC too)
      – the UFRA challenges from 8 to 25

      Again, take a look at it if you can. And yes, i’ve already tried contacting both Bandai Namco and Sony support teams, to no avail. All i’m getting are automatic replies or just no replies at all.

      And before you can say anything about “licensing” stuff: 1) none of the content is licensed AFAIK, as they’re all Namco properties 2) one of the missing DLC, previously listed above, was added after i reported it, so they can definitely be added back, there’s no point in removing, for example, the UFRA challenges from 8 to 25. It should be “all or nothing”, the rest of the world has all DLC, no exceptions.

      Anyway, the highest priority should be the non-working Decal Set 13 DLC.

      2) Oh, just a tip for all the upcoming Blog entries like the Store Update posts: try to list EVERYTHING that gets released. Every single theme, every single avatar, every single demo, every single free content in general. I keep finding new content not listed here. Last time you completely omitted any form of DLC.

      I hope you can take a look at all those issues/tips. I’ll keep posting this wall of text until i get a proper answer. It’s not like i’m asking for impossible things. Thank you in advance.

    • Its Ridge Racer on a last gen system, nobody cares.

    • Neither do i, about your silly answer ;)

    • At least I cared enough to give you an answer!

  • 44 pounds for GTA V is not a deal, that is insane.

  • So this is why GTAV PS4 is omitted from the Rockstar sale.

  • Those PS3 price drops mentioned in the post, I assume they haven’t taken effect yet? It’d be nice to get a list of them at some point..

    • Read between the lines, he meant the sales from last week. Nothing new this week .

    • Was wondering about the same. But seems that Lance_87 is right.

    • But last week didn’t have “hundreds of titles”..

    • He probably counted both games and DLC. Still, not exactly “hundreds”.

    • Of course we had, Battlefield DLC and the Rockstar sale, that’s “hundreds of titles”.

    • Many months ago there was a sale listing 100’s of titles —there was 103 in total. Guess arithmetic isn’t a skill needed at Sony

      I suppose the big sale will be the 20th anniversary sale but wouldn’t hold your breath as that usually consist of a photo of a cake…more akin to ‘AVIT and then they squat over you

    • @Lance_87 9.1: Those are sales… “Pricedrops” to me sounds as permanent price reductions. Though most likely it is what you said, but… You gotta believe!

    • Permanent price reductions for hundreds of titles? This doesn’t even happen in the world of unicorns and gummi bears!

    • Well that is probably something in common with “usefull” replies from the blog staff… Will never happen.

    • That’s a personal bugbear of mine… the use of the term price drop use to infer a permanent price reduction of an item not a transitory price (ahem a sale). Curiouser and curiouser…tomorrow we might get new sales items that are actually on sale but then items that can be bought new and with goodies are lower priced than ones in the store.

      Every time I load Onechanbara I laugh at the release price on PSN to quote the Count from Sesame Street ” I could have 2 Onechanbara for the price of 1″

    • There are a few on the store now – MGS4 is £11.99 (was £14.99), Dishonored is £14.99 (was £19.99), Steins:Gate is fiver cheaper than it used to be. Still, nothing eye catching and definitely not “hundreds” as things stand

    • There are several Vita price drops too, some good ones.

  • Hi.

    What ever happened to VVVVVV in Sweden? It was released a few weeks ago (apparently) but it’s nowhere to be found :(

  • Pointless in asking as the only thing around to respond is tumbleweed but can anyone clarify that story pack 3 is the season pass for One Piece Pirate Warriors 3? If so why not actually state that is a season pass as opposed to a story pack.

    Not being funny but the high price of One Piece Unlimited World Red dlc was pretty expensive even with the season pass so I would like to know before purchasing what may just be a story pack.

    To further clarify on the PS4 store entering the season pass section it doesn’t even show up so which is it a story pack or the season pass and if the season pass isn’t available in the EU why are trolling Europe by stating in the synopsis “save with the season pass”

    • Just a bit of off-topic regarding One Piece Pirate Warriors.

      There is a free piece of DLC for all registered users on Bandai Namco official community page. Just log in and visit Vip section. You can find for free some costumes.

    • Cheers but I registered the game there on release day. One day they will have something I want to spend all my points on

    • @Izorpo
      Oh no you don’t even need to register a game. It’s free for all. :)

      Anyway if you already have it than that doesn’t change anything for you.

      Aye I know… there is nothing worthy to spend those points on.

    • rather something will be available I want as opposed to items never being available. One Piece jacket would have that but no more, messenger bag non as well

  • You’ve made a mistake with Flame Over on PS4. It’s listed as £11.59 but on the blog post it clearly stated £8.99.

    ”I’m really happy to be back on PlayStation Blog to tell you that Laughing Jackal‘s firefighting action Roguelike, Flame Over, is finally making the jump to PS4 and will be available from Wednesday 16th September for the bargain price of £8.99/€11.99. Yay!”

  • “…but if you missed out on some of the biggest PS3 titles first time round, make sure you stop by PlayStation Store as we’ve dropped the prices of hundreds of titles.”

    The only price drop I see is for The Witcher 3 and it’s a PS4 game.

  • Rockstar, with this “still £10 more than normal retail price” discount you are really spoiling us

  • Is it worth asking on the whereabouts of the Guilty Gear Xrd DLC characters at this point? It feels like they’re never going to be released in the EU =/

  • Great to see Book of Unwritten Tales 2 — fantastic game!

  • Deal of the week? Come on! Be serious! It’s more like “Joke of the week”. This is just sad.

  • for Australia it says PES 2016 is available on the 22nd not the 17th

  • EDF V2 vita is out USA today when UK I rang this morning but no one could say

    • Ive had the Japanese version since last xmas and the western release for both that (vita remake of Global Defence Force) and the PS4 version of EDF 2025 (or EDF 4 Shadow of Despair) are suppose to release in winter this year. So I suspect it will be November or Q4 and you can read about the release at vita lounge. Seemingly physical versions too ^_^

  • Seriously, the response to community feedback is getting worse and worse on the EU blog. There were various “serious”questions asked in last weeks store update, yet the only response was “Will return to normal next week” in regards to the listing of DLC. If you want to improve the blog, here are some tips.

    1. Please add prices to the sales/discounts. Mistakes get made and seeing the price on the blog is a nice way to check if there were any pricing errors in the store update. Also you mention discounts for PS3, what are they?

    2. Respond to feedback and questions. Even a “it’s up to the publisher/dev”, “will check that”or “sorry can’t get you any info on that” are very helpful.

    3. Make sure that the store update is live at the time of the posting. I’m excited to check some of these discounts, but they aren’t there yet. I can imagine some people see the discounts and in there excitement purchase the games full price.

    4. Please try to standardize the blog post and store update schedule to a certain time frame.

    5. Consider that not everybody has high res monitors, or is watching the blog on mobile phones. Your layout results in text overlap in the pricing of the games, lowering readability significantly.

    6. Also, maybe not your duty, please add the sales and discounts tab in the mobile version of the store. It’s there for the mobile version of the US store and both EU and US on desktop.

    I’d like to ask the readers of the blog to add more feedback in a reply to this comment.

    • Hi there everyone. I’m painfully aware that responses to your queries have been poor in the last few weeks. The no-fluff excuse is that until the Jawad’s replacement begins in a few weeks I’m operating at diminished capacity. Tracking down answers to detailed queries on DLC and regional availability issues can be hugely time-consuming and – *hands-up* – I just can’t keep up. Two things:

      – I’ve collated a list of this week’s questions so far and am doing my best to get them answered asap
      – Service will improve as soon as we’re back at full strength. I’d estimate early October.

      Again, apologies for the tumbleweeds. It’s not a situation I’m happy with at all, and it will improve.

    • Thanks Fred for your reply. I was aware of Jawads leave, but didn’t know that the blog team apparantly is so understaffed, it resulted in this low output of response. Just know that I’m not angry, but I genuinly want this blog a better place for Playstations most loyal users.

    • The last few weeks? Responses to our queries have been poor ever since the start of this EU blog. I’ve been here from the start so I can tell for sure..

    • I assume Jawad gave notice on leaving…

    • fascinating…

      takes time to read questions but not respond….One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 was released on the 28th of August and the earliest someone can clarify about content released on the day of release is October?

      wow just wow

    • Maybe add a section underneath ‘Most read posts’ and put all the answered questions in there, and maybe hire a dedicated user of the blog to actually answer questions to put in that section. That way people can see them whilst looking through the updates and don’t have to look through every single comment to find their answer.

    • Fred,

      Send me the list every week and I’ll do it. Just send me a PS4 and some PS Store credit and we’ll have a deal!!!

    • O.K Fred,

      That explains the last few weeks. Now what about the last few years?

    • I don’t have access to that info at the moment.

      Just copy and paste that under a few random posts and you have the blog for the last few years.

  • Can anyone explain why the Destiny base game, plus the previous two expansions (which players have previously already been charged a small fortune for), plus the The Taken king, can be purchased together on disc at retail for less than just the digital price of the new Taken King?

  • What happen witcher paid dlc i ordered not on list aslo i paid for a reply be helpful again psn euope gone down hill a lot aslo ps4 fastest selling consle. Aslo mm studio not celebrate because tearway flo should done lbp3 .

    • No Witcher 3 DLC has been released yet – the first big expansion is coming 13th October – though it’s not at all clear whether that’s what you’re on about

  • where is the NBA Live 16 demo?

  • I,m still hoping for Tokyo jungle to be on there someday

  • GTA V is not worth paying that much for, pass

    • Personally i think it’s worth at any price except it should’ve dropped by now. We’re talking a 2 years old game, who cares if it was re-released recently.

  • Any news on the last game of thrones episode release date?

  • Could someone correct the price on the Prototype Biohazard Bundle on the web store? The post mentions two discounts of 20% (offer and PS Plus) but the web store shows it at full price.

    • Hi I’m NewDust, your unofficial psblog respondent.

      I can not be certain on this, but it seems that even though this weeks sales are added to the Store Update post today, the actual sales will go in effect tommorow. Wednesdays is the usual day for sales to go live.

  • I swear they haven’t mentioned Broken Sword is now on the PS store for PS4 or maybe I missed that post, but at 25 quid I’ll be waiting for a sale on that.

  • That deal is shameless. Nice to see that this store posts are still not getting any type responses to questions again, SCEE is so bad.

  • Bungie’s bad reputation is so bad these days I think it’s reflecting badly on Sony.

  • Might’ve gotten GTA5 if it were an actual sale. Why do you guys even bother?

  • hi newdust
    well I followed your link but it tells me Tokyo jungle is only playable on the ps3
    and I have a ps4

    • Hi I’m NewDust, your unofficial psblog respondent.

      Ah, I was not aware of you hinting at a ps4 release. I haven’t heard any rumblings about porting this to PS4, but I do know that it is currently playable in the US version on PSNOW. PSNOW is on open Beta right now in the UK. I do not know if Tokyo Jungle is part of the UK selection, but if it’s not, there is atleast hope of you playing it somewhere in the future.

  • The Tropico 5 discount doesn’t appear to be working, I’d be grateful if you could look into it, thanks.

    • Hi I’m NewDust, your unofficial psblog respondent.

  • XBlaze Code: Embryo releasing in Europe after more then a year after US. Are they still thinking we are idiots who never heard of importing when we get threat like some second class gamers?

  • PES 16 is out on the 17th? A Thursday?

  • One week more and Yakuza 5 nowhere on Europeland.
    Neither preorder nor avatars.
    Oh, yeah….. ¬¬

  • When is the GTA V price supposed to be live. I’m only interested if it works with the 33% off voucher though

  • Well Flame Over has been added to the store & oh yes, the price is wrong.

    Awesome work SCEE store team. Awesome.


  • Many games are launching at wrong prices lately (as stated by the devs)

    Curses and Chaos and Flame Over for PS4 are both more expensive than intended and still not fixed. What’s going on here?

  • Why isn’t PES out in Australia

  • Okay, credit where it’s due – the permanent price drops are pretty excellent. Like a really good sale but with none of the end-date anxiety that forces me to spend huge amounts o money on stuff that I probably won’t play in the next several years. Some great deals on Vita JRPGs in particular

    Danganronpa, Virtue’s Last Reward, Akiba’s Trip, Ys: Memories of Celceta, all less than half their previous price, and that’s barely scratching the surface

  • Where are some of you guys finding all these games that have dropped in price, like the vita games some have mentioned? I can find them when manual search, but if I look in the price drop category it still shows the Rockstar, Battlefield and digital games sales.

  • PS+ discount for Bloodborne DLC or no buy.

  • Taken King: £39.99/€39.99 (£1:€1)
    Taken King: Legendary Edition: £54.99/€69.99 (£0.79:€1)

    Not only is this a ridiculous price for dlc, which I understand has already been downloaded as part of the recent patch and this simply unlocks it, but this is simple currency conversion. How is this being messed up time and time again? At least I hope this is a mess up, because if this is intentional, then there is an even bigger issue at play.

  • Any word on the Rock Band 4 pre-order, with bonus songs for PS Plus subscribers? We were told on US blog that we would be getting this here, but the game now releases in less than three weeks. Thanks

  • WHY IS Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 NOT OUT IN AUSTRALIA

  • The store is acting weird on the discounts?!
