resident evil outbreak (ps2)

March 27th, 3:07 pm


I’m with you bro, we need more resident evil content in the psn store. What i really want them to do is make a HD version on Zero and Remake, then put them in psn store 8)

March 27th, 3:07 pm

I was wondering if there will be a new move bundle, any news?

PossessedReGan said:

March 27th, 3:14 pm

hmmm…….. yawn. Oh well, the FF sale/update was plenty awesome last week.

eggmiester28 said:

March 27th, 3:20 pm

not a bad week but nothing i want oh well maybe next week

ThanatosDMC said:

March 27th, 3:21 pm

Now if we can only have a Little King’s Story sooner or a Vita exclusive Monster Hunter game…

Carl-G said:

March 27th, 3:22 pm

Cool update;) But shame i have to wait another week(WHY?! do that) for ‘The Tester Season 3’ Final :(

onslaughtree said:

March 27th, 3:24 pm

For all that are asking, NOT ALL PSP GAMES WORK ON THE Vita. So be very careful with purchasing games in mind. Also on the FF sale. Remember, most discounts and sales usualy last 1 week. So if you see a sale and want the game, best bet is to BUY IT. Most times the sale will be gone at the next PSN update. Keep on Gamin.

kcarl2879 said:

March 27th, 3:26 pm

When on earth will there be a PS Vita update so the Vita will be able to support PSOne Classics and more PSP titles? Or will there be even be one at all.

Sevyne said:

March 27th, 3:26 pm

So pretty much all of the Atlus PSP games drop in price and you fail to mention it here. Way to go!

I’m also with Double-O-Vex on his comment. When in the hell is Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock?

Omii132 said:

March 27th, 3:28 pm

Oh sweet all persona games are price drop, and crimson gem saga, and hexyz force, and knights in nightmares nice nice!. That´s the best part of this update!

Omii132 said:

March 27th, 3:30 pm

But you have to check it out by yourself, they didn´t tell us anything about it.

Faythi said:

March 27th, 3:37 pm

Would love to take advantage of psp sales and ps1 discounts but whats the point when vita owners don’t know if or when the vita will support it. Same thing for remote play. I’d be out buying so many more ps3 games if remote play would work with it.

Get to it Sony, I want to give you money!

Glass-X73 said:

March 27th, 3:42 pm

I think there’s an error on the price for Splinter Cell HD bundle unless I’m not understanding something or my math is off. The bundle is regularly priced $40.

Discounted at 50% the price should be $20.00 and at 75% for PS Plus the price should be $10. The store says the regular discounted price is 27.99 (that’s a discount of 30%) and for PS Plus members the price is $19.59 which on the original $40 is a discounted price of 51%.

My question and I hope I get a response, has the original price been increased? Are PS Plus members getting a 75% discount on this bundle or just the 50%? Or am I completely misunderstanding how this discount works?

DMcgee627 said:

March 27th, 3:42 pm

PlayMemories Studio ($14.99)
15 dollars for a crappy movie editor?

zDeoxyZ- said:

March 27th, 3:53 pm

Will there ever be any Naruto Avatars?

alien_jew_420 said:

March 27th, 3:56 pm

decent update… gotta say tho, the video editing software… wut? who asked for this type of content… who will actually use it? i can already edit video on my computer, tablet, phone, etc… how about focusing on this new portable you just launched and i gobbled up… or features we actually want like remote play. LISTEN UP SONY give us what we content and features want, instead of developing half baked apps that nobody asked for!!

moar vita games please!!!!!

Glass-X73 said:

March 27th, 3:57 pm

Also just to add, on the PS Store, the advert on Tom Clancy content is that PS Plus members get up to 75% discount, but I couldn’t find a single item that showed a 75% discount. Just curious about how the discount’s been calculated.

retro25 said:

March 27th, 3:58 pm

Nothing interesting this week, when is The Price Is Right decades coming to PSN?

PrimeroIncognito said:

March 27th, 3:58 pm

Morgan Haro, if you’re around, I have a question, sir.

I was under the impression that The Pinball Arcade from FarSight Studios was to be released on PSN today, however, it’s not listed here. Do you have any info on what happened, or a new release date?

FORMIK said:

March 27th, 4:05 pm

There’s enough requests for what makes sense, Plus on the Vita. Here’s what I’d like to see:

– Cloud storage expanded to 200MB to accommodate both PS3 and Vita.
– Automatic Update to inform players on the Vita Notification when a specified amount of data or days has surpassed since last backup, or conduct update on own if possible.
– Automatic Update to also allow players to download the latest episodes of Pulse, The Tester, and new Flixster trailers if memory card has enough allocated space.
– Notification also to display when a player receives a message in the Livearea, and social apps like Facebook.

* All PS3 players’ PSN profile comments should be viewable, just viewable, on the Vita. All Vita players’ PSN profile panels should be viewable, just viewable, on the PS3. Those with both a PS3 and a Vita will have a more fleshed-out profile.

Retrievil said:

March 27th, 4:07 pm

How about fixing the issue with PS+ minis not working on the Vita? I can’t even buy the games, they don’t appear on the Vita PSN, and you can’t transfer them from the PS3. You guys have known about this issue since day one and at this point, all I can think is that Sony is intentionally not fixing the issue so we will buy more of the launch titles.

CartmanPat said:

March 27th, 4:08 pm

Yikes. There’s always next week…

Oakridge said:

March 27th, 4:09 pm

SkyDrift (Price Change) (PS3) (now $9.99, original price $14.99) from ps store update 2 weeks ago and if this is permanent Price Change which it seems that it is(it says 9.99 on the store) then Sky Drift 50% off plus wouldn’t the be 4.99. so which is right?

Link01 said:

March 27th, 4:16 pm

Hey, you know… besides the ‘should be work in progress PSBlog app’, there should be a notification on the Vita that people can enable letting us know the store has been updated. That would be nifty :D

PuppetShoJustice said:

March 27th, 4:17 pm

So I take it that PS1 classics aren’t a thing Sony is doing anymore, huh?

arturfbt said:

March 27th, 4:27 pm

Finally Castlevania The Dracula X Chronicles is available for vita …

Strangeheaven said:

March 27th, 4:29 pm

That’s a shame, no KARA tech demo video, that would of been nice.

Would it be possible to have developer interviews and development game progress updates on playstation store.

Like say one hour specials of behind the scenes of the latest development from the top developers like, rockstargames, naughtydog etc.

I would love any update progress of The Last Guardian, and the secretive Rockstar North ps3 exclusive AGENT.


tylerh1701 said:

March 27th, 4:32 pm

Same question as #75 – Oakridge.

The update post says Skydrift is 50% off for PS+ members, but it’s only 25% off on the store. ($7.50 instead of $5). Any chance the price will be corrected to 50% off?


Shidarth said:

March 27th, 4:35 pm

any word on us getting those Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City Avatars or were they just Europe exclusive :(

ReptileHand said:

March 27th, 4:36 pm

That battlefield DLC is ridiculous. The only thing I would pay for is the Air vehicle DLC and I’m never paying for that. $10 for all the unlocks? Of course I could help my Team better if I had them. but $10? That’s EA for you. I wouldn’t mind $5.

Thanks for the early update.

Early update = anytime before 9:00, 10:00, or 11:00 (EST) fyi

Nothing for me, might pick up the MS RC DLC since it’s cheap for PS+ members (keep providing free/discounted DLC and people will actually buy it) :D

Content is good, but the Spring Fever sale is… not good… Maybe because not enough variation like past few spring fever sale…

MoogleDee said:

March 27th, 5:21 pm

Neat update, thanks as always. Just uh… what’s the difference between a ‘Price Drop’ and a ‘Price Change’? Is one temporary and the other permanent or is it just one is significantly more than the other?

Zemus101 said:

I got excited when I saw Magic 2012 add-on content. Blah. Nothing for me.

Thanks for the update PSN team. I’m looking forward to trying Closure.

Sanuk Games is supposed to be releasing Arkedo’s three games; Arkedo 1 Jump, Arkedo 2 Swap, and Arkedo 3 Pixel, on PSN. I think they are releasing them as minis. I believe Europe has the first two already. Any word on these games?

Have a good week!

Hello, Is there a reason that Persona 1 and Persona 3 are not accessible anymore using the PS Store via the Vita?!? I am half way around the world from my PS3 at the moment and would really like to grab them for my Vita please and thanks

that-acmilan-guy said:

March 27th, 6:30 pm

Spring sales feels more like spring cleanup if anything, there are hardly titles in the sales worth getting excited about :(

Also please fix the pricing, 60$ for FIFA 12 you kidding me?! I can get it for no more than 30$ these days!
