  • What is going on with the PS Store right now? I can’t access it on the web the past 2 hours. A friend of mine even said that a “Films” category has shown up on his mobile PSN store app. We both have Irish PSN accounts by the way.

  • Also, he purchased the Uncharted 4 Season Pass in 2016 and out of nowhere Jak and Daxter HD and the preorder Lost Legacy Dynamic theme has been added to his Download List just now. Was this a thing? I didn’t know people with the Uncharted 4 Season Pass got these too.

    Even the Naughty Dog FAQ says “The Uncharted: The Lost Legacy PS4 system theme is only available for those that pre-order Uncharted: The Lost Legacy via the PlayStation Store.”

    • Yes it’s normal, at first The Lost Legacy was supposed to be a DLC and part of the Uncharted 4 season pass. Naught Dog finally decided to make it a stand alone game but it’s still free if you had bought the season pass before the change was made. Jak & Daxter is a preorder gift.

    • I know that. But my friend is after getting the “Preorder Gifts” of Jak and Daxter and the Theme even though he didn’t “preorder” the game. He got the Season Pass last year.

      Naughty Dog, on the link I provided above in their FAQ, even say the only way to get them is by preordering the game. I even remember there being a few people miffed that they weren’t getting the theme and J&D because they bought the Season Pass orignally.

      That does not seem to be the case now and people are in fact getting the theme and J&D for owning the Season Pass. Unless my friend is wrong lol and he accidentally preordered The Lost Legacy standalone at some point and doesn’t know it.

    • Owning the season pass is esquivalent of pre-ordering it, in fact if he owns the season pass he won’t be able to preorder the game because the store considers he already owns it.

    • Where were you to tell people this when they were asking why they weren’t getting Jak and Daxter and the theme for buying the Season Pass or Explorer Pack for Uncharted 4???

      Seriously, thanks Captain Hindsight, I get it, you are putting the pieces together and assuming that people are getting the extras with the Season Pass from I said in the first comment. You didn’t know this yesterday though.

      If you knew this, you would have told people that here when they were furious over it https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2017/04/11/uncharted-the-lost-legacy-releases-23rd-august-new-footage-revealed/

  • White Day for me! And hoping Duck Game is gonna be a good price. Should be hilarious to play with some friends.

    Also, Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma was pushed back a week last week. And now no mention of it? Please don’t tell me it suddenly got delayed even more.

    • I am also wondering what happened to Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma. I was really looking forward to it on PS4. If this keeps up i might have to import the game instead.

    • Sony Europe doesn’t seem to care about Zero Escape at all. It’s released in the US on PS4 without a problem. If they don’t release it here in the next few weeks, I will probably get it from the US. I would much rather have an EU digital version in this case, but luckily the US also got a physical version, so I will probably just import that one instead.

      I don’t think we will get any info on the game until it comes out in some months. I still remember Costume Quest 2 (which I bought on Xbox One instead as it didn’t come out on PSN in Europe for months after the Halloween release for Xbox and US PSN).

      I am still somewhat hopeful, but as this post doesn’t mention Zero Escape, I am somewhat sceptical. A comment on the previous blog post said they would remove the games which were pushed back from the post (but they are still in there). They just seem like some words to me instead of actual facts.

  • Freedom Planet is going to get delayed again isn’t.

  • OK, someone explain to me why every link is taking me to yahoo.com login page.

    • Seems to be an error with it linking you to Flickr instead which ususally hosts the images that are on the blog.

  • Uncharted for me…and apparently Jak & Daxter since that has installed onto my PS4 (as well as the Uncharted dynamic theme) even though I didn’t pre-order but instead am an Explorer pass owner from last year. Okee then. :D

    • Well that confirms it then. Yep, Season Pass owners and Explorer Pass people (is that the same thing) are getting Jak and Daxter and the theme added to their download lists. ^_^

  • ALSO if you have uncharted 4 triple pack with season pass you get lost legacy & jack and daxter 1 for free as well as if you pre ordered lost legacy :D

  • Definitely going for Darkest Dungeon Crimson Court expansion!

  • Got an email about my copy of Lost Legacy being shipped, so it should be in my mailbox tomorrow

  • Are people complaining that Jak and the theme are appearing for us Deluxe/explorer pack owners? Really? Try waiting as long as we did not knowing when we would see the content we had paid for. Because, you know, we did pay for it. Their is no preferential treatment. Infact I was livid when I was first told I couldn’t get the theme at all. I was there day one, as I was with Jak and Daxter and every Uncharted game. It felt like a slap in the face.

    • No I am happy for you. :) This is awesome and a very good example of bad marketing when it turns out all along you were going to be getting it, just nobody at Sony bothered to tell anybody.

  • What happened to the A Bard’s Tale for PSVITA

  • Damnit why doesn’t Tekken Bowl come out this week!

  • Just to let you know, in case you miss it. Bard’s tale for PS4 includes the three classic games, but the VITA version does not.

  • Looks like castle of illusion is back on the store, I wonder when that went up

  • So, why there are no new games from EA in Ukrainian PS Store?

  • MP dlc for mass effect? EA must be having a joke after they cancelled the thing we WANTED Single player DLC!

  • Thimbleweed Park looks cool. Definitely got my interest.

  • is the Danganronpa v3 Demo going to be available everywhere?

    I know that it’s out already in Germany on both Vita and PS4, but I’m still waiting for the Demo Release on the Vita in Austria…

  • A dull and bland post, clearly lacking in pezazz. Bring back Sandeep.
