PlayStation Store Update 01-15-13 Frequently Asked Questions

  • I pre-ordered my copy of DMC, however, when I try to play it, it says that I need to renew my license. How do I fix?
    Due to a fix with allowing pre-order customers to get the bonus content, you may need to go back in the PlayStation Store and click ‘Download’ on the DMC game page. You don’t need to redownload if it’s already on your PS3. Just click the download button and that should ‘renew your license’.

Can someone tell me why all the ps vita instant collection has ended so fast? Also make Madden 13, Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation, or Need For Speed Most Wanted free games for the Vita.

    The PS Plus – Vita instant game collection isn’t ending. FF Tactics is one game that’s leaving next week; and then next week there will be a new PS Vita game to take its place.

RE4LNOiZE_42 said:

@ 200,

Seriously, NFS Most Wanted is SO worth the 40$ price of admission… I would say that it is one of the best game for the VITA out there, and one that proves that the handheld can run the same games as the big consoles do. This is really Burnout Paradise 2.0 (it’s made by Criterion too), although with a focus on police pursuits and street races (of course, hence the name!). It has a truckload of replay value too.

I rarely say that, but giving that game away would be a real shame because the developper DESERVES our money. Unless Sony compensates them, of course (don’t know if Sony do that when they give a game for free).

Anyway, NFS:MW, to me is a “shut up and take my money” kind of game… Day 1 purchase, never regretted it, and played the hell out of it (still am).

ACIII: Liberation is nice (playing it right now) but still feel a little bit “cut-down” (so far) compared to the bigger games of the series. Got it on sale (10$ off), and it’s about worth what I paid for it.

But don’t wait until NFS:MW goes for free on PS+. Go buy it now. It’s definitely worth every $.

How are the PS2 classics chosen? Is there voting, or election process?

I’d really like to see Dragon Quest 8, and SMT 3 : Nocturne made available.

BlueBl1zzard said:

January 16th, 11:54 am

@cheddar2010 In the PS Plus blog post, Morgan said “One other note; some of you noticed that inFAMOUS 2 left PlayStation Plus as a free game last week. This was an error and it will be back in the Instant Game Collection on the 1/15 PlayStation Store Update.”

If it’s not on there now I assume they’re working to get it back up and it should be available soon.

@RE4LNOiZE_42 I agree, although I like Burnout Paradise more, NFS: MW Vita is definitely a very good game, and in my opinion has some of the best multiplayer of any game on the console so far (except that pressing the PS button automatically disconnects you from online, please fix this Sony!!). I finally recently beat every race with every car at about 40 hours of playtime, and am now only 4 trophies away from the platinum! Now I need to find that last billboard….

Any info about the following games for PSN:
-Atari Anthology
-Tekken 3 (PsOne Classics)
-Tekken 4 (PS2 Classics)
-Tekken Tag (PS2 Classics)

The DLC was released a month… let me say that again A MONTH AGO and it does not work. How can you release something nd not have it work. This is an EPIC FAIL on someone’s part. Multiple posts show everyone is having the problem and the only reply so far is they are aware of it.

Meanwhile XBOX had the issue and it was patched immediately plus XBOX got numerous patched for other issues with game. PS3 gets a big F…You. No patches, no fixes and no updates to problems, all secrecy. How bout a refund to the people who purchased it or give it free to all those you have inconvenienced.

This is like buying a car with no keys for it. Great I have it but can’t use it. So what is the sense. Will Sony reply about this MAJOR SCREWUP and give us an update or will we get no answer and a lot of really ticked customers.

…No comment on Tales Of Vesperia on the Japanese Role Playing game Selection for future Genres selections from last week’s poll? I really want a C/D on that. Typo or Legit, Troll or Good.

Just curious as I think they meant Graces f for the real game there.

Be nice if it wasn’t though. :)


P.S. Please Reply Morgan :3

Hey store staff:

Hot Shots Golf World Invitational went back up to $35.99. Is this a mistake or was that price drop to $17.99 temporary?

    That was an error, inFamous 2 is still part of the Instant Game Collection.

I like Wake Up Club. Got like 3 trophies for just sleeping & waking up. I was first among my club of 12, so geesh, what a bunch of sleepy heads we Vita folk are, lol.

I didn’t know about the cool wallpaper, the Gravity Rush and Journey themes are great. Very nice app, thank you.

January 16th, 4:27 pm

Sorry if this is asked a lot but I have a question about plus renewal. Mine expires in a few days. If I let it lapse and renew it in a few weeks, will I regain access to all of the free plus games I’ve downloaded over the past year?

SterlingPenn said:

January 16th, 5:45 pm

Any idea if there is going to be a Magic The Gathering coming to the Playstation Vita? It seems like a perfect fit for this awesome system. :)

BlueBl1zzard said:

January 16th, 6:13 pm

@ethanrule3 I want to say yes, when you re-subscribe even if it’s a few weeks or months after it lapses, you should still have access to the free games. However, I want to say someone said that you have to have played the games within a certain period of time, for it’s expiration date to be lengthened. Not 100% sure about that last part though

ibAdAzz said:

January 16th, 6:24 pm

With Ni No Kuni coming in next week @ 19GB(38 Free to DL and Install) Why isn’t there a pre-load option for this game yet? Makes buying digital pointless, might as well get the physical copy.

Sevyne said:

January 16th, 7:54 pm

@217: Magic The Gathering on Vita would be fantastic! I haven’t played MTG in ages. Still have my card collection though. Also would rather not play on the PS3 because having it on the go is just most convenient.

thebiglouie said:

January 16th, 8:56 pm


I know there was a sale on it, but that’s not what I was talking about.

Price change, not a sale, to $17.99 from November 27:

Three mentions of the game having $17.99 as its regular price ($12.49 was the sale price)

Then nothing, and now it’s back to $35.99 out of nowhere.

@thebiglouie, @Kristine Steimer
According to the 11/27/2012 update (, Hot Shots Golf Invitational should be $17.99. All the other Vita games mentioned there still reflect the discounted price tag on the store.

I am so mad at Sony and PSN Store. Get a PSN card go to buy the next PSOne Classics game I want just to find out they removed it and replaced it with the PSP/Vita only version. I don’t want that, I want the Classics version that I could play on my PS3! Poor service Sony! Very disappointed! Starting to loose the faith I have had in you all these years!

I like the new highlighted box its really nice it makes it stand out for what is coming for plus members. Also Darksiders is a very good game I am really enjoying it so far. Hopefully we will get good games like this in the coming future.

Spanish-Armada88 said:

February 1st, 12:53 pm

I would really like to see PS2 Classic RPGs like Dragon Quest VIII. It selled well on PS2, is considered a classic and I believe it would be a good sell on the PSN Store as well.

yayday said:

February 1st, 9:36 pm

Hmm, so instead of buying the Angry Birds trilogy games for $3.00 on the app store, you expect me to pay $40 just to play it on a PS3? HAHAHA.
