PlayStation Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi Everyone –
The Store Update is now live and ready for you to check out all the latest content. We’ve got some great games this week, but here are some of the featured items you may want to get to first. The complete update list can be found below.

It’s no secret that this week sees the release of one of the biggest games of the year: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Starting today, you can start using Call of Duty ELITE, a premium membership specifically for the Call of Duty series. ELITE helps you elevate your multiplayer game, whether you’re new to the frantic battlegrounds, or a bona fide veteran of the series. You can join for free, or get access to all the features for $49.99. Get more details by clicking here.

Today is also the day Square Enix’s “Winter of RPG’s” kicks off starting with Chrono Cross. Journey through two parallel dimensions in a remarkable quest featuring a huge cast of characters, an engaging battle system, and one of the greatest original soundtracks of any game. If you missed it before, you’ll want to experience it this Winter.


And lastly, free and exclusive for PlayStation Plus is the incredibly charming “Where is my Heart?” Breaking new ground in the PS mini lineup, Where is my Heart? tells the story of a family of monsters searching for a new place to call home. Watch the trailer and play on either your PS3, or PSP. Watch for the PSN-wide release for this title on 11/22.

There’s much more to see so check out the full list. Drop your comments below, or join the discussion on the PlayStation Community forums. You can chat with other PSN gamers, or post questions regarding the Updates. Any questions that are able to be answered will be addressed by PlayStation Network’s Morgan Haro/mochuuu.

Thanks for the update. A Rayman Origins demo? Thanks PSN team! I’m really looking forward to this game.

A handfull of requests;

1. The very first teaser trailer for FFXIII-2.
2. The TV commercial for Heavenly Sword. (Old I know, but please! You don’t even have to announce it.)
3. The E3 2010 “debut” trailer for Rayman Origins.
4. Did you get the Rayman Origins Comic Con trailer up? It was missing last week.

Regarding sales and/or price reductions;

1. Motorstorm Pacific Rift DLC.
2. Mirror’s Edge DLC.
3. Blade Kitten.

Thanks for your time, and have a great evening!

    November 8th, 5:15 pm

    I dunno, I think Hydrophobia free day 1, 4 PSOne Classics free, exclusive early and free Where is my Heart,is pretty good for about 1 week into the month, no? But we’re not even halfway through November yet; so stay tuned for more.


November 8th, 4:09 pm

wait why is hydrophobia prophecy suddenly change to 7.99. wow I’m honestly never buying a psn day one again


November 8th, 4:10 pm

psn game*

Wolf26pack said:

November 8th, 4:13 pm

Hey Morgan,

Thanks for the Reply! I know that a lot of the things I suggested aren’t easily accomplished and your only the messenger, but I can only hope that the people hearing my requests think their feasible. I know that most of my requests should be able to be done, perhaps it may take a while but I know with just a little more will power and less greed, those in charge can make those things happen.

My top 4 things I’d probably hope to happen would probably be…

1. Twisted Metal PS1 Released
2. PS1 Games are Reduced to $4.99 ea again
3. Folklore’s DLC goes on sale
4. Gifting is added as a feature to the PS Store

and you have to admit #2 & 3 just take some will power, while #1 hopefully their aren’t any legal issues because I really love that game, and #4 well that’s a technical feature that I’m sure you guys are already working on and will be added sooner or later.

Hopefully my # 2 & 3 Requests can be fulfilled soon. ;-).

Thanks Again

November 8th, 4:20 pm

First off what ever happened to the free theme for plus members last week? The robot theme it never showed up any news about this????

Also i would like to know why 2 games recently free for plus Members have an expiration in June 2011 if i remember correctly we were told if we register for plus the games we get to keep as long as were a plus member so why is it expiring?????

If you didn’t already notice look at these two games

Dead nation and Hydrophobia they both expire in June 2011.

    Morgan Haro said:

    November 8th, 5:17 pm

    This is something we’re addressing but it will take some time. This expiration date is based off of the expiration date you had for Plus when you downloaded the games. But as long as you’re Plus, you’ll have access to them, no worries there.

Mr_Shots said:

November 8th, 4:25 pm

Wasn’t Voltron due to be out sometime soon? Also, it was mentioned by someone else, but I would love to see Suikoden II as well. (Suikoden 3, 4 and 5 too for the PS2 but now I’m just being greedy.

Are we still in time to buy a 1-year Plus Subscription and get Jurassic Park The Game free? I saw a banner in the Store that said the promotion was available until the end of today (11/8), but it’s not there any more.

    Grace Chen's Avatar

    Morgan Haro said:

    November 8th, 5:18 pm

    This offer had to be removed from the Store banners since it’s a new week, but you still have until 11:59pm tonight to download the 1 year sub for Plus and get JP free on 11/15.

    Morgan Haro said:

    November 8th, 5:20 pm

    remember Plus content is scheduled by the month, not necessarily planned by the week. This month so far has seen the release of 5 free titles; but perhaps we should stagger the releases throughout the weeks as opposed to all at once at the beginning of the month.

November 8th, 4:57 pm

I wanted to get advantage of the Jurassic Park for one year suspription to PLUS, but my paycheck wont come until friday! And the promotion expires today :(!!

The only reason i dont have money at this time is because of the “Must have” Batman, BF3 and U-3!! Is there something you can do Sony??

Thanks for the update!

luxo80 said:

November 8th, 5:04 pm

Hi, i wanna know if the FIGHT NIGHT CHAMPION for $5 is the full game or is just a part of the game.
Which modes comes with this version? It has trophie support, and you can platinum, or we need to buy the bundle to do that?
Please, someone can explain the total differences on both versions, because i’m really interested in buy it.
Thanks :)

Morgan where is the Tomb Raider Lara Croft PSN avaters at for us my friends on the EU have them dont you think we should to

b00kthree said:

November 8th, 5:20 pm

huh. Yeah… Kind of a skimpy plus update. The best thing on it (in my book) is a mini. I have never seen that happen before.

Don’t get me wrong… this looks like an exceptional mini that would have beaten other non-mini offerings on many other months. But it’s the only thing I plan on getting this time. Again, don’t get me wrong… there have been weeks when *nothing* was worth downloading for me. It’s hard to please everybody.

Strange week for plus. Looking forward to trying out the mini, though.

ReptileHand said:

November 8th, 5:27 pm

Geez, every week doesn’t NEED to be a strong week for PS+ plus. This week wasn’t strong… who cares? They’re doing they’re best and …. oh wait. In 2 weeks time it will be Black Friday… just think what they’ll have in store for PS+ plus members then! Discounts and possibly more free games… but I’m more concerned about the outrageous sales they’ll be pulling out. We don’t really need a meaty PSN update seeing as a lot of great retail games are coming out / have been coming out lately. They pulled out all the stops last month and the month before. I really have more games than I can even play right now.

Manslayer911 said:

November 8th, 5:29 pm

Looked in my psn’s inbox today and saw that I got the 10 bucks promised us. Thank u very much for making good on your promise; I’ll definitely take part in any future program of the sort similar to last month’s. Also, nice to see a mini getting some love and recognition in this week’s update.

luxo80 said:

JukeboxAddict said:

November 8th, 5:40 pm

Hey, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you guys for the improved pace at which you’ve been offering full retail PS3 titles. It hasn’t gone unnoticed. You were lagging behind the competition a bit in the beginning, but these weekly updates of 2 or 3 great PS3 titles has been great to see. Well done.

I read that Metal Gear would be Digital as well, I didn’t know there were changes. I was looking forward to something good. $120 in psn cash and nothing to buy for 2 months. PS Plus doesn’t look good enough to get this time around. Most of the stuff I want won’t be here yet, Fina FantasyX, Dust514, and Starhawk is going to be Digital to?

But seriously I was looking forward to MGS HD
