    It’s all about that Hatsune Miku Season Pass this week!

  • The Nioh hype is strong! Can’t wait for tomorrow. It’s going to be legen… wait for it…

  • When is I Expect You To Die releasing in Norway?! Hope it´s not that far off!!

    • Schell Games has finally confirmed additional releases for its VR title I Expect You To Die, after it released late last year on PSVR for North America. Since then European and those in Australia and New Zealand have been waiting for news for when the game would be available on their respective stores. Schell has now confirmed that I Expect You To Die will be available on February 6th in the UK, Australia, New Zealands, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, and Slovakia. Additional countries will be added in later weeks.
      As stated on thesixthaxis.

    • Thanks, Barrow30, but this is still lame. First months without explanation, now a vague later weeks… this is quirky japanese stuff slow release schedule! “Play Now” says the official homepage… :(

  • Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for Australia update???

    • Someone was nice enough to share this last week:

      Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Delayed In Australia Until February.

      Capcom explained that the Classification Board’s processes forced Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 to be delayed in Australia. According to the publisher, UMVC3 can’t be released in Australia until “minor changes” have been made to the game’s parental settings.

      The full statement is as follows:
      “Due to Marvel vs Capcom 3 receiving a higher age rating in the ANZ regions the team have to make some minor changes to the rating settings of the game in order for it to release and as such there is unfortunately a delay. We hope to be able to release the game for players of 15+ age in February and will have more news soon. We apologise for the delay in bringing the game to fans in this territory.
      Marvel vs Capcom 3 was officially issued an M rating on 20 December, , in line with the rating given to UMVC3’s original release on PS3. Previous MVC3 games have been rated PG, such as Marvel vs Capcom: Origins and Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.”

  • Is there any news about Double Dragon IV in the European PS Store? For some obscure reason it’s still only available in the UK and France. When will it be available in the other EU territories???

    • It’s apparently terrible, if that makes you feel any better?

    • Not really. I know it’s getting mixed reviews, but tastes differ. From what I’ve seen of the game I’m pretty sure I’m going to enjoy it, WHEN and IF I finally get the chance to buy it, that is. Either way, an official update about the release would be nice.

  • It would be nice to have staff around here … oh, wait … I meant, caring staff.

  • Just so you know, the For Honor beta is 30GB in size! I was expecting over 10GB, but that is crazy.
    Get downloading now.

  • Is the season pass for Nioh supposed to not show as purchased if you grabbed the digital deluxe edition?

    • Same for @smokeypsd
      I bought the Nioh Digital Deluxe Edition but I never got the seasonpass. :(
      The correct amount was drawn from my bankaccount but I just got the “vanilla” version of the game. Sony messed up the pre-orders on this one for sure…
      (I live in Sweden if that does matter to anything)

  • Argh, why do I even bother, I don’t want to deal with [DELETED] like this after making purchases just about every single time.
    Improve/give some much needed attention to the fraking store and support resources in general, period for the love of god.
