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

Hi Everyone –
With two big events starting today, new Uncharted 3 DLC, along with brand-new PSN Games and amazing new additions to the PS3 Full Game collection, we find ourselves with plenty of great content for this week’s PlayStation Store update. So let’s get to it!


We start things off with and the PSN-exclusive Zack Zero. This gripping platformer contains more than 30 characters, 5 spectacular bosses and ever-changing levels. Help Zack Zero save his beloved Marlene, kidnapped by the evil Zulrog in an effort to obtain the powerful substance that will allow him to travel back in time. On the other end of the spectrum is Amy. From the original creator of Flashback, Amy delivers deep cooperative gameplay and a unique system that requires players to strategize in order to protect Amy and keep both characters alive.

In DLC news, the first multiplayer map pack for Uncharted 3 hits today with the Flashback Map Pack! Get 4 multiplayer maps for UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception including “Sanctuary”, “Fort”, “Cave”, and “Lost City”. Download Flashback Map Pack #1 for UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. This map pack is included with your Fortune Hunters’ Club membership. If you haven’t signed up for Fortune Hunters’ Club, you can still snag all the excellent content coming over the next months, along with all the content already released, all for just $24.99. Click here to learn more about the new content coming to FHC.

The PS3 Full Game category sees a new wave of content including what many consider to be two of the greatest games of all time: ICO and Shadow of the Colossus; now available separately in HD for the first time.

To cap things off, PlayStation Plus subscribers are now the first to access the Public Beta for the highly anticipated third-person shooter Starhawk.

Crysis 2 is probably selling best on ps3. I doubt they will want to put their next game on a disc. These guys make me laugh too, when I actually read their comments.

Zack Zero, huh?

What an appropriate title!

WrightThomas said:

January 17th, 8:23 pm

Just wondering – I live in Australia and my PSN store has not updated yet (as at 3.30pm AEDST). I purchased the Saints Row Season Pass, and I don’t have access to the Genkibowl DLC either in game, or through the store. The in-game DLC menu says “No DLC available at this time”, or something to that effect.

Any idea what time (local time) the store updates and/or when the store will be updated and the DLC will become available?


lisatsunami said:

January 17th, 8:28 pm

Well, I have nothing to add to the Megamixer pile-on, so I’ll just say:

Morgan/Grace: Thank you for the digital ICO/SoTC offers. I asked for that long ago on this blog and promised not to whine even if it was full retail price. I will be getting the SoTC first, since I already finished ICO (awesome in 3D, by the way, on a Bravia HX 929) but will eventually also get ICO and sell back my disc copy. Those of you whining about the price can buy mine, used, from Gamestop in the near future.

However, this is all going to have to wait just a teeny bit longer, since I am still and only playing Skyrim, continuosly since 11/11/11.

Oh, downloading the Amalur demo. Hope it’s good. Will soonish need another RPG.

Wait, I do have something to say related to the Megamixer debate: he’s nowhere near as negative Nancy as a couple trolls who used to do multiple posts every day. They (I suspect it was actually one person using multiple accounts) were rude trolls who fought back like ‘tweener girls with a bad case of “p” envy. However, it was amusing and I kind of miss “their” couple month absence.

How do I play the uncharted 3 dlc maps because I. Can’t find them when I search a game and thereunto an option to switch like in uncharted 2

January 17th, 9:09 pm

Can someone please confirm or deny that Crysis 2 now has PS Move support! The game is listed under the move only/compatible section of the PS store and my jaw has not gotten up off the floor since I’ve seen it. Is this a misprint or can I bust out my move and sharpshooter right now while I input my credit card. I need to know!

KidCommando said:

January 17th, 9:09 pm

wow, Zack Zero looks pretty damn good for an old school platformer. seems weird there is no video or promotion for this PSN exclusive game?

Basay said:

January 17th, 10:36 pm

so the KoA demo just froze my PS3… lost all sound about 5 mins into the demo and every NPC i tried to talk to the txt just zoomed by, WTH?

SirBeck said:

January 17th, 10:46 pm

You are being rather rude for someone whom does not know the full story. Maybe he can’t afford both, or maybe etc… There could lots reasons. I know lots an lots of people and families with PS3’s using Standard Definition TVs. I myself have three PS3s, one full frame HDTV, an two smaller SD TVs. A vast number people out there are still gaming an watching videos on SD TVs. And the majority the games don’t even put out in 1080i or 1080pmost put out in 720 p only! granted that is still HD, but that is the low end it.
You should think before you speak!.

@ lisatsunami Did you like the Kingdoms of Amalur demo? I thought it was amazing! I was gonna wait til the reviews, but the demo lasted 2 hours and I was sad when it ended. I’m gonna preorder it tomorrow.

ryanumber1 said:

January 17th, 11:30 pm

Zack Zero is amazing!

9/10 (Narrator’s voice is not typical of most narrators)


Great game! Really worth $12.99, and I would dare to say it’s worth $19.99 easy.

MaverickHunterX said:

January 17th, 11:56 pm

Hello first off, I did like the update especially the sale on the neo geo stuff. This leads me to ask about this:

1. Since Hudson is going away, does this mean that their Turbografx 16 games on psn are going to be delisted?

2. Not trying to be greedy, but any chance of a bundle or sale on these games in honor of this great company?

3. Lastly, any chance of new tg16 games being updated soon? I know the Japanese psn have a lot more (bonk 2 and 3, splatter house, etc)

Thanks for your time

lisatsunami said:

January 18th, 1:31 am

@164, rabidninjamonky: I downloaded Amalur demo but haven’t tried it yet. Everything is backlogged until I finish Skyrim or Skyrim finishes me. As of tonight I am 2 trophies away from the platinum, & this would be my very first.

However one of my PSN friends has already played it & told me it’s a must buy & he’s been right about everything so far.

AizawaYuuichi said:

January 18th, 1:59 am

I was kind of interested in Zack Zero when I first saw a video for it when it was released on the EU Store. It kinda looks like a Ben 10 ripoff, but not in a bad way. If it had been $10, it would be an insta-buy. But going over that by 30% puts it squarely in “wait for demo or discount” territory. Too bad, it looked fun.
And I guess I’ll go ahead and take the plunge on PixelJunk Sidescroller. It’ll be my first PJ game, and without a demo, I’m hoping my $4.89 won’t go to waste.
I’m definitely going to grab the KoA:Reckoning demo. Can’t wait for it to come out. Now I just need the ME3 demo so I can unlock the Reckoning bonus items. Hopefully it comes out before KoA does, so I can have all the bonuses ready to go as soon as I boot it up.

AizawaYuuichi said:

January 18th, 2:01 am

@lisatsunami: I feel your pain. I finally finished the Skyrim platinum on Monday. 193+ hours. Loved every minute of it (aside from the game freezing and system crashing). I’m glad I’ve got a few weeks off before Amalur comes out, so I can play some less time-consuming games. XD

If they had demos, I’d probably purchase Amy and Zack Zero, but no demo, no purchase.
The competition ALWAYS put up demos on RELEASE DAY, you know? Learn from them, please.
Yay for the Castlevania HD demo, the game was a year late on PSN, and the demo was a few months more. Way to sell a game.

when are we getting gitaroo man as a ps2 classic?

onslaughtree said:

January 18th, 6:14 am

Yup. GOOD UPDATE. Im gonna address a few things today.
1- Yeh having a demo is cool, but sometimes, having a demo before your game is released hurts the sales of your game. mostly early poor put together demos.
2- Im all for digital releases. you buy 1 copy, you can use it on multipul accounts, unlike a physical copy.
so kudos for the S.O.T.C & ICO digital releases.
3- Update section has over 30 games on sale. If you dont find a game there for you, or 1 of the 8 digital releases, or the UC map pack, or the GT5 car pack, or the DW pack. Well maybe this week is just not for you. That does not mean that MANY, MANY other GAMERS aern’t happy with this update. Quite frankly, this is a Very SOLID UPDATE.
We may START off the blog with a bad taste in our mouth, but REAL GAMERS always stick together. Keep on Gamin.

Hello Grace, you forgot to add the timed exclusive LittleBigPlanet DLC with the new year costumes, which is going to be up for just one week.

So far I got the LittleBigPlanet new year costumes, the Worms Armageddon mayhem pack, and the new Saints Row the Third DLC, it’s good that I got the season pass for this game awhile ago ;)

By the way, I still haven’t seen the Sonic Generations Casino Night Add-on…

Crysis 2 has lots of glitches and bugs that EA/Crytek never cared to fix, it’s a good game but I don’t think with the “interest” it’s developers are showing is worth to be bought for $40 in digital form where if you don’t like it you are screwed

I’m having a good laugh at these self entitled brown nosers simultaniously kissing corporate butt and tossing out nonsensical insults at anyone who calls junk exactly what it is.

This store update is well almost completely uninteresting and has little of value. Last week was the same as was the week before that going back pretty much forever. Couple of hints for the company and its developers: A – come up with better content that works as advertised, listening to gamers for a change would help in that area. B – reply openly instead of relying on these brats to defend you. Mainly if stuff was better in the first place it wouldn’t need defending. Take the hint or keep racking up more NO SALE, choice is yours, it doesn’t hurt me either way.

Okay blog, I see you have worked your evil magic so I can no longer log in through a PS3. But I have decided to stop anyways. I finally understand that you guys at Playstation are completely incapable of putting a decent game in the PS2 Classics Section. Such as, GRAND THEFT AUTO SAN ANDREAS. My theory is Micro$oft has exclusivity rights to it. They’ve had the game for a very long time now. For you, Playstation, it should have been the first game released for the newly introduced section.
Prove me wrong. Until then, you have failed the PS2 Classics section.

I think more PSP games would soften me up to get a Vita (kinda kidding but I would buy more games).

Overall okay for one update. Can’t wait for public Starhawk!!

It’s OK. I am wondering when the save game storage is gonna increase. 150MB really isn’t enough. Is there any plan on that being increased. I am also looking forward to more PS2 games being released. I would love to get the Persona series on PSN
