Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by VP, PlayStation Network

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.

Longtime reader, first post. Hey Morgan. I’ve got a feature request that I’d love to see in a future firmware update which really shouldn’t be too hard to program in. For a while now, I’ve been wishing I could sort my downloaded games by title. As of right now, you can only sort by created date and recently played. With all the great games I’ve gotten since subscribing to PS+ (since day 1), it’s takes a little while to find everything sometimes. Can you pass thing along please? It would be a great feature that I’m sure tons of users would utilize. Thanks!

Dear PlayStation Folks,
I am from Bangladesh and over here we run into some big problems with PS3 games. As you may know, PlayStation is not officially supported in our country. As a result, we don’t even have warranty for PS products. Stores get their games from other stores abroad which results in getting mixed region games. DLC is region locked, which causes a lot of problems with buying DLCs because most of us only use 1 PSN account to purchase games. So I can there are some ways to fix this:

1: Make the DLC region free: So we can buy DLC regardless of our PSN accounts and game region. Remember we don’t have official Sony support here.

2: Give us Official Sony PS support: As a pirated country, most of us still support Sony by buying original expensive PlayStation products (it is more expensive than 60$ as it not officially supported hence pricing is loose). So give us back something in return, with support we may have warranty, better pricing model for games, PSN support, etc.

At the end of the day, we end up spending more money but we don’t get much in return like the other supported countries. Thank you!

i dont think i will be getting MW3 any soon. Too busy playing Uncharted 3 :D.

iTofuMan said:

November 8th, 9:31 pm

Yet another dull week for us Psp users. i pray this is not how we will be seeing the Vita games released. if anything i thank god we can still have carts for playing games because judging by how neglectful you’ve been to the psp recently is just pathetic. There are still tons of games you have yet to release, and refuse to release it without any word from both you and the devs. Why keep us in the dark for games that are already release that just need to be released digitally?

Anyway aside from that the only good thing this week for me is the Lego Harry Potter. i enjoyed years 1-4 and i know ill enjoy 5-7.

JDM_4EVA said:

November 8th, 9:50 pm

A little request.

Do you guys think you could maybe release Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PS2 Classic.
This is a game i really miss playing.

mrhalford said:

November 8th, 9:59 pm

How about the 1st Spyhunter for the PS2. It was an awesome update to a classic game. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Motherboop said:

November 8th, 10:11 pm


Are you being for real? They launch one of the most sought after titles onto the PSP (and PS3) with this update, and you think it’s a dull week? Chrono Cross – download it now!

ukrain said:

November 8th, 10:35 pm

Love the update!

Since we’re talking about adding more PS2 classics now, how about the entire Xenosaga series?! I love those games!

iTofuMan said:

November 8th, 11:25 pm

@ 108

And because of that one title means this update is a 10/10, greatest update of the year? While i will be picking up Chrono Cross soon, just that one game doesnt make me enjoy the update as a whole since you, i and everyone else knows Sony can and should do better with these updates especially for the psp.

With that though when i state things like that i mean actually psp content. i dont consider ps1/mini as psp content as they can be played on both ps3/psp, so its not just exclusive to psp, plus there are content for both that are unavailable for use on the psp.

can we get the gtaV trailer? i really wanna see it on an HDTV.

thanks in advance PSN!!

americanGTA said:

November 9th, 12:26 am

Can we get the ps2 “Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy” come on PSN, the 360 has it. heck, even the apple app store has it. its the best selling ps2 game of all time, it should be on there asap IMO.

badreligionbomb said:

November 9th, 12:32 am

I wonder if 360 users are as whiny and lame as PS3 owners… all I see are a bunch of unsatisfied babies… expecting hand outs etc… like Sony OWES you something… grow up and quit crying… people whining over crap like avatars etc…. you make me ashamed to be a Sony fan… because I have to defend your whininess in other forums…. just grow up

Ghost_Shrimp said:

Someone please tell me why there is no GTA V trailer.

unamazza said:

November 9th, 2:22 am

MotoGP 10/11 2011 Season Update is broken. I know nobody cares, but I actually have this game and was waiting for the update. Installing the DLC does absolutely nothing. Others have confirmed this problem as well.

Can anybody at Sony help, please??? Morgan Haro?

DarthSkywalker08 said:

November 9th, 2:47 am

Hi I was wondering will there be more modern warfare 3 themes or avatars?

hrbrt7 said:

November 9th, 4:06 am

Worst update I’ve seen.. I know the reason why.. lol they are reserving all the good/great games to download after November 18, so that everyone can only activate and share those games for two ps3.. XD

awesomescreed98 said:

November 9th, 4:59 am

Sony, I think I have a great idea. Wouldn’t it be great for a new Kingdom Hearts game or maybe a collection which includes Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep or any other Kingdom Hearts game. But what should really be in there is KH and KH2. Think about it, HD, and possibly some minigames. Please reply.

remanutd5 said:

how about Heavenly Sword , Folklore ps move and trophy support ?

evil23alej said:

November 9th, 6:33 am

Oh god Monopoly Streets Why? The characters in that game freaked me out. Played “Where is my Heart”. YEAH its a cute game

I would like to put a suggest have a new retail release ps3 games into digital ps3 games. GO DIGITAL its the FUTURE

Also, I give EA credit for trying something new with the Fight Night game giving a quarter of the game content and having the option to buy everything else to come out to $29.99.

seemefora2nd said:

November 9th, 7:36 am

Love the fact that more and more PS2 games are coming to the PS3. I never thought i’d see the day! Are you taking requests lol!! Thank you PSN :)

etur0 said:

November 9th, 8:35 am

here is an idea put the videos that you put on the ps3 and put them on media go at the same resolution ha it is on the ps3

etur0 said:

November 9th, 8:39 am

@iTofuMan blame the people that hacked the psp and are getting the games for free that is the main reason why there aren’t many psp games being release because so many people are doing that it isn’t worth release games on the psp also right now most devs are focusing on the vita

PirateHarlock said:

November 9th, 10:45 am

Yes it is a weak week once again. Realistically I can’t remember an update that was really exceptional. I again noticed comments from several people who’ve been nickle & dimed out of what they paid for. And the total lack of response from Grace, Morgan or anyone else. No trolls you don’t count, attacking paying customers who just want what they paid for is when you forfeited your right to speak.

One other thing, if anybody hasn’t yet read Eric Lempels announcement from last week on Nov. 18 Sony is further restricting your rights to use what you paid for in the PSN store. So two things you can do: Firstly make your voice heard about this unethical scam. Secondly if you do buy anything from the psn store do so before the 18th.

EduSikora said:

November 9th, 11:35 am

Why the best selling game on PS2 is not in the store already??? CMON SONY , GTA SAN ANDREAS was the best game on PS2, what are you waiting for?

infamousXX87XX said:

November 9th, 11:46 am

I was hoping MGS Peace Walker would be on the PSN. I don’t want to buy the collection just for one game

DRH235 said:

November 9th, 12:39 pm

Two other games you could add to the ps2 classic’s list can be Haunting Ground, and Urban Reign.

CaptainJames99 said:

November 9th, 12:41 pm

With these store updates getting ever more pitiful by the week its little wonder they get such low ratings. Between this and the latest money grubbing scheme announced last week I’m scratching my head on how scea expects to sell anything. Shameful Sony thats all I can say really the rest has been said already.

Oshnaj said:

November 9th, 1:36 pm

@Morgan Haro, is there a posibility to bring Black (PS2)?

Feral_Dragon said:

November 9th, 4:12 pm

A late comment, but whoever is in charge of PSN avatars for NA should be FIRED. Seriously, f off with all the Street Fighter avatars!!! Every week is Street Fighter, there are OTHER GAMES!! Only twice this year have there been a generous selection of avs from different games, must have been the two days the guy was sick and couldn`t put his usual sick does of Street Fighter.

DIFFERENT AVATARS PLEASE! NO MORE STREET FIGHTER!!! Skyrim is being released on the 11th and I see NOTHING on it >:(

I like Saints and everything but I would like to have GTA SAN ANDREAS on the ps3 to get my game on for a classic. I just hope that sony thinks about this or is the game too violent and will have mothers picketing around sony and Rockstar like they did when it first came out on ps2?

Liminality said:

November 10th, 2:34 am

Greetings Grace!
I don’t usually comment on the Blog, but I was browsing the PSN Store update (after some epic pwnage in Modern Warfare 3 ), and I saw it and just had to rush and leave a comment.
A Big THANK YOU on PSOne Classic “Chrono Cross”! I had the original game, but the discs were damaged beyond repair a long time ago, and I just haven’t wanted to buy off E-Bay or somewhere and have them in almost unplayable condition for a more than a $9.99 price tag. Although your placing of it was close to the bottom and it wasn’t mentioned in the weekly e-mail, I’m sure this was just an overlook (Just giving you a hard time! :P).
Again, thank you. This will give me something to sate my old school RPG urge for awhile.

No more PSN purchases for me now that I can only activate 2 systems at a time. In fact, no more *new* purchases at all until you go back to 5 activations. Used or nothing for me, now, you idiots.

November 11th, 5:49 pm

It was kind of a bummer to see everybody got the theme for Infamous Festival of Blood free now…. while its nice that everyone gets this cool theme for free, and it was a pretty sweet theme too, it kinda leaves me wondering now what was special about pre-ordering the game ? are you going to go back and give those who pre-ordered the game something else, such as a free infamous fob avatar pack, or a second theme, or a bonus game, etc. ??

I love the Jurassic Park series!
Is it going to be playable with PS Move?
And btw. When are the Battlefield 3 and FIFA 12 are going to be released on US PSS? They are on EUR PSS for a while now, and i can’t wait to download those!

hjason1 said:

November 12th, 10:50 am

Well i must say this idea is to get more money from us the gamer who spends a lot of money already…
This elite serves no purpose in my opinion it is another gimmick….
And also does what you can do yourself through the game, and you can download the dlc if you want it…
But frankly this game and company needs to fizzle out, they are not friendly to us ps3 owners only to smutsoft (MICROSOFT)……..
Because they pay companies to put it on their system because they are afraid of losing money…

Ahoy! Awesome work getting an expanding library of the classics! I’ve tried to purchase Chrono Cross, but it won’t let me do so. Is is a common problem or is it just something about my configuration? I’ll love some help here:)
