PlayStation Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on May 22, 2012 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi Everyone -
There’s much to talk about in this week’s PlayStation Store update, including new PS3 Full Game downloads, an amazing new PS Vita title that takes advantage of the system’s AR (Augmented Reality) capabilities, brand-new PSN games and the return of some fan-favorite PlayStation classics.

We’re happy to join the Sorcery celebration this week with the title being available to download on the PlayStation Store. In this PS3 exclusive, take control of a young sorcerer’s apprentice and master the arcane arts to fight back the foul creatures that inhabit this magical realm. Sorcery puts the power in the players’ hands with PlayStation Move by allowing you to conjure and command powerful magic as you brave the dark world of the Faerie Kingdoms. Check out all of the great coverage for Sorcery if you crave more info, then head to the PlayStation Store to download it today.

PS Store

In other PS3 Full Game news, fighting game aficionados will be happy to see Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition available on the PlayStation Store. This upgraded version of the initial SFIV release features new characters, new environments, and a few additions to the online experience that make for a more complete package. If you never picked it up on disc, you can now download a copy from the PlayStation Store.


PS Vita gamers will want to check out Table Top Tanks: an all-new explosive Augmented Reality game. Using the device’s rear camera, this game builds the battlefield based on where you’re pointing your Vita (preferably on a table top). Control nimble yet deadly tanks through a variety of single player challenges, or join three of your friends in multiplayer matches across a number of game types.

Fans of the classic show Doctor Who will be thrilled to see Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock arriving today. In Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, players take on the role of the Doctor and River Song as they travel across space and time in an effort to save Earth by journeying to the Eternity Clock, a planet that is a record of everything that has (or will ever happen) in all of creation.

PS Store

For fans of the classics, there’s plenty of ground to tread here, including SEGA’s hefty dose of nostalgic releases like Alex Kidd Miracle World, Super Hang-On, and The Revenge of Shinobi. Check out the full list of SEGA titles arriving today in the details section. More classics including the PS One Classic Alone in The Dark: The New Nightmare, as well as PS2 Classics like Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain and Need for Speed: Most Wanted are dropping today as well (please note that Alone in the Dark PS one Classic is only playable on PS3.

The PSN-exclusive masterpiece Journey now has a demo available to download. If you haven’t taken the dive on this instant classic, head to the PlayStation Store to see what you’ve been missing. To commemorate the release of this demo, we’re also having a sale on thatgamecompany’s other hits flOw and Flower, along with other special content from thatgamecompany like themes, avatars, soundtracks and more. The sale is on for all of PSN, but PlayStation Plus members get an additional discount

In other PlayStation Plus news, in addition to the aforementioned discounts, you’ll also find the hit racing title ModNation Racers now sporting a generous Plus-only price of $15, so if you haven’t purchased your membership yet then now is a great time!

Keep a look out for other great content on the PlayStation Store this week including new Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack avatars, the Reality Fighters Ghostbusters Add-On, and more. Make sure you check out all the details below and let us know your thoughts in the comments below and then come back next week to see what’s new in the PlayStation Store, or join the discussion on the PlayStation Community forums in the Official PlayStation Store Update thread.

I plan to grab Doctor Who later today, been waiting a while for that one. I notice though it’s listed under PSN games, then below though are PS3 specific games so does anyone know, is it transferrable between PS3 and Vita if I want to take it on the go?

2.) When is there going to be a mention of Vita + PS+?

Otherwise WOW on the game sizes for full games. I’m surprised you guys put those up there. I’m scare to see Uncharted 2 up there…. is it compressed?

Another week, another drip of AR crap for Vita rather than a game people actually want to buy. Sony couldn’t even be bothered to have the demo for Resistance: Burning Skies out this week to get us ready for next week’s release. I get the feeling it’ll come out next week, which will be rather pointless since anyone who cares will already have the full game. I’m sure the already-done-and-in-store-demo-units Gravity Rush demo won’t hit PSN any time before THAT game’s release, either. Thanks for nothing, Sony.

PJM deluxe now works on the vita. Big deal. A week late with no explanation of why sony sucks so bad at communication and delivering products as advertised.

I love looking at my vita download list and seeing recent highly rated minis such as Velocity and Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims listed as Cannot download using a psvita system. Wonder why titles such as velocity don’t work on US vitas. The developers are also wondering.

“Velocity is currently not approved to run on Vita in the US.

Which is a shame, because it actually plays the best on Vita; and we know this because it runs fine for people over here in Europe.

SCEA (PlayStation USA) are having issues getting a bunch of PSP games approved for Vita, and Velocity is unfortunately one of those.

We’re on the priority list apparently, but we don’t have an ETA. We’ll post back when it’s sorted. You’ll be able to play on PSP and PS3 in the meantime.”

The sony circus continues with the clowns apparently in charge.

I wonder who decided not to bundle the PS3 releases of the Sega Classics–Sega or Playstation, despite being grouped together at a “buy 2 get 1 free” price on the competitor’s console.

This leaves me very torn as to which console to purchase them on, since I usually prefer to get new games on my PS3, but it’s not often that the “other box” console offers more bang for the buck… If I understand this thread correctly, they’re all seperate games.

For the people asking about the Doctor Who game, having played it since this morning i can say as a fan of the series I’m pretty happy. Its a fun, enjoyable puzzle game with a unique story. although ill be the first to admit it does has its fault. Like bugs and glitches i have encounter with the game i assume will be fixed with patches/updates. Nothing too game breaking though. you might have to restart your ps3 (like i did) but it was only once. Or sometimes your AI companion (River Song) might not spawn thus being unable to finish the level. All in all though its a great game and if you are a fan of the Doctor Who series its well worth it. Its only 19.99 and well worth that price.

@Massimodo That quote from the developers of Velocity is very telling. SCEA is clearly purposely withholding certain games without reason. “Currently not approved to run on Vita in the US” is absolutely ridiculous. If I’m not mistaken they are just trying to get people to buy other things instead of giving them all the free games they already own at once. Truly outrageous.

If i remember correctly on their facebook or twitter page the people for Velocity was told that there content would be up next week so that Sony can have more games in next week update.

@itofuman
That’s good to know, but it also reinforces my point — that they are picking and choosing when to release old games we already own and are already compatible because it suits them. That is kind of frustrating.

@142, well, to be fair, these mini(s) do work on the PSP/PS3- it’s not like a product was purchased & the content failed to work across the board. Secondly, “purposely holding w/out reason” makes very little business sense. Yet, as we try to understand why from a consumer stand point & from what outside information we’ve gathered, there IS a reason that all of us here DON’T want to believe- that doing these conversions/ports whatever you want to call them, isn’t easy. Furthermore, Sony probably doesn’t have enough people to tend to it. These file containers are a pain to convert; a lesser example would be trying to play a Window’s video file in Apple’s OS.

Why does Velocity work in Europe & not here? These are seperate territories that often do not share the same content releases. Look at the Euro blog, our seaside brother/sisters have spoken that they want what we have & us, vice versa.

@Massimodo That quote from the developers of Velocity is very telling. SCEA is clearly purposely withholding certain games without reason. “Currently not approved to run on Vita in the US” is absolutely ridiculous. If I’m not mistaken they are just trying to get people to buy other things instead of giving them all the free games they already own at once. Truly outrageous.

I don’t see any conspiracies, just incompetence. Any psp mini being released should work on the vita, no questions asked. This needs to become standard. I would start dropping the psp support on minis and have developers start taking advantage of psvita hardware. The vita is the future for sony handhelds, not the psp, its time to let that system die and move forward.

Itofuman, thanks for the impressions of Dr. Who. I’m pissed the vita version is three weeks away as that is what I’ll be playing it on.
