Dear Sony,

I truly enjoy my PS Vita, I however did not spend 250$ and an additional 100$ for a memory card for an Indie machine, are there any other third/first party support between April 30th (Soul Sacrifice) and September/October where I think Tearaway and Killzone Mercenary drop?

This device is incredible where is all the backing from the E3 conference?

Thank you.

April 16th, 7:35 pm

Lol, so you guys can make the ”update note” on time but you can’t make actual STORE update on the right time? Pathetic.

honkayjeezus said:

April 16th, 7:56 pm

Thanks, and thanks for a continued great subscription service. One where you actually get things!!

You have probably been asked this a hundred times, but is there a Last of Us demo coming out near its launch for those without Ascension? Thanks.

Skyyplum said:

April 16th, 7:56 pm

It’s nearly 11pm here in NY and the store still hasn’t updated. What is going on?

A_93juantheone said:

April 16th, 7:59 pm

Are there discounts for the liberty and vice city stories ps2 classics?

lil_hand said:

April 16th, 8:02 pm

Just wondering if the store was going to update tonight? Was looking forward to unwinding with some GTA after work this evening.

FrederickAjex said:

April 16th, 8:08 pm

rine63 said:

Gamefreek67 said:

April 16th, 8:23 pm

Been waiting all day to get Dragon Fantasy and its already after 10pm here.

Whats going on Sony?

No PSN store update, our version of the Defiance patch delayed, and can’t see any type of answers from you guys!

KiritoXion said:

April 16th, 8:27 pm

I’m so exited for the good discounts but I steel waiting the update, what are you doing sony? come on don’t be waste my time

ytleste said:

April 16th, 8:35 pm

It is now a little past 830 now (mountain time) and the store is still not updated. I am very disappointed with this (not that it matters much) as I decided to purchase Injustice digitally and now it looks like I won’t be playing today. Thanks Sony.

Brock51174 said:

April 16th, 8:40 pm

well its sonys fault that they r losing money from this especially due to the GTA sale

applepfreak420 said:

April 16th, 8:55 pm

its wednsday in 5 minutes and no store. :(

InsanityDrops said:

April 16th, 9:11 pm

dudes i cant see my new stuff in ps store why ? D:

DelMurice said:

April 16th, 9:16 pm

Really? No update yet? Should have just taken my suggestion from a few months back and made Wednesday the store update day.

bigsgg71 said:

April 16th, 9:27 pm

First of all I want to say that I am on the east coast. No Tuesday store update!? I have a suggestion for Sony that will make everyone happy (including Sony). Cut the work in half by doing two store updates per week. On Tuesday, focus only one new release games. Big retail games should be done at midnight or no later than 10am EST (that is when Best Buy and others open). On Wednesday, you can do all the DLC, update the price changes, videos, and etc. I believe in the long run this will make most people happy. Call it a little compromise. Hey, it is only a suggestion…

BrianC6234 said:

April 16th, 9:31 pm

I find it unacceptable that we aren’t being told what’s going on. From now on you need to make sure someone posts updates on this blog if they network or store is down. Why weren’t we even told about this to begin with? It’s not that hard to make a blog post and let us know why the store is down and when it will be back up.

ScroteLuvr said:

April 16th, 9:34 pm

This is ri-goddamn-diculous considering how much effort goes in to the publications and advertising for these releases. Having such an massive unscheduled delay is unacceptable practice.

Lord_Ka1n said:

April 16th, 9:35 pm

@218 But if they changed the update day to Wed they would just start updating on Thur. They think theyre fashionably late or something.

JayBizzle311 said:

April 16th, 9:38 pm

sucks about the delay…. gonna get malicious.. I just platinumed Spec Ops: The Line… I love just switch something out for something else from my download list…

picked up Injustice earlier… if you like DC or superheros it’s a nice fighter.

JayBizzle311 said:

April 16th, 9:38 pm

but yeah… 12:38 am EST 4/17/2013 and still no update

senbonzakura713 said:

April 16th, 9:41 pm

I’d say shut up and take my money, but you can’t cuz the store hasn’t updated. Its almost wednesday central standard time.

b00kthree said:

April 16th, 9:47 pm

You know, I was a bit sad I couldn’t download Malicious right away, but I’m going to pull through this. I didn’t have time to play tonight anyway. I really don’t care if these updates are on time. Doesn’t matter to me one bit.

I hope all of the upset and forlorn can find it in their hearts to forgive Sony. I suspect you’ll still be buying stuff tomorrow either way. I can see how an angry post or two might make one feel better. Knock yourself out.

PsychoSploosh69 said:

April 16th, 9:51 pm

Come on! how hard is it to update the store? It’s almost 1 am eastern. I wanna download gta before tomorrow. this is sad! Come on Sony!

Tyrannikos said:

April 16th, 9:55 pm

I wouldn’t be so disappointed in this delayed update if we just had word on what the hell is happening. Horrid way to treat your customers.

bigsgg71 said:

April 16th, 9:57 pm

@222. I see your point. If they stuck to that schedule with no delays, I believe everyone would be alright. The two day schedule that I mention might at least make it so that Sony can stick to its deadlines and guarantee an explanation if there are any delays.

mateonam said:

April 16th, 9:58 pm

sad store didnt update. happy with my vita until today. so dissapointing sony!

bigsgg71 said:

April 16th, 10:01 pm

@226. I think you are right about the angry posts. If anyone is to blame for the angry posts, it would be Sony. They seem to have delay issues and to and insult to injury, they do post about what delay issues. I can see how that would make its customer base feel ignored.

JoeyGerms said:

April 16th, 10:15 pm

Still nothing huh? Thank you Sony. We appreciate the long wait…

BrianC6234 said:

April 16th, 10:39 pm

“I hope all of the upset and forlorn can find it in their hearts to forgive Sony. I suspect you’ll still be buying stuff tomorrow either way. I can see how an angry post or two might make one feel better. Knock yourself out.”

The update being late isn’t a problem but how about letting us know what’s going on? Someone failed big on this. The least they owe us is the reason and some updates. Someone can stay at work late or even do it from home. I don’t see anything on the blog about this problem.

intrigue169 said:

April 16th, 10:42 pm

i would bet that Sony messed something up yesterday with there big 12 hour update, that would be why the store has yet to change, That means that borderland sale is still good and it is now Wednesday. oh well it is not like they will give me something good that I would enjoy. At least I can look forward to the EU update tomorrow. my only complaint is that I missed out on batman because I did not subscribe until January. when my North American plus account runs out I will not renew, but when my European plus runs out I will have it renewed months ahead of time because they give so much better content with a few garbage titles from the bargan bin, unlike the NA plus with a decent title every few months with a bunch of crappy $10-$15 dollar games(ones you have to ride the little bus to enjoy) when not on sale.

Anyway I am going to get back to playing my free Okami HD, and Mass Effect III games I got of my EU account and laugh at everyone that is sad that Sony does not love their American customers as much as their European ones.

Where’s the MALICIOUS GAME! im from México and i found it, but not as FREE for PS PLUS, why?

FrederickAjex said:

April 16th, 10:58 pm

Nothing yet….. no even a response from Sony….. I’m absolutly desapointed… SONY I BELIEVED IN IN YOU!!!!!!

BrianC6234 said:

April 16th, 11:04 pm

I just noticed this retweet on the Playstation Twitter account.

“SonyEntNet ‏@SonyEntNet 14 Apr

Don’t forget PSN will be undergoing maintenance tomorrow (4/15) starting at 8AM PT. More info here:”

The problem with that tweet is I don’t remember seeing anything here on the blog that there would be maintenance today. They tweeted also that the udate would be late because the maintenance took longer. Watch for updates. It’s been more than two hours since that tweet. Sony needs to really pick it up on this stuff. It isn’t that hard to post these things on the blog too and to update us at least once an hour.

Skyyplum said:

April 16th, 11:13 pm

Sony did say on Twitter at 11:45 PM EST that the update would be delayed due to issues with maintenance. Plus Morgan posted on the Playstation site about the delay. The only thing that has me upset now is they gave no idea when we would be seeing the update. Plus an upsetting trend I notice on here a lot is that after a few pages the employees stop responding. I’m not saying they should respond to every post because that would be insane but with an issue like this, an occasional update would be nice.

BrianC6234 said:

“Sony did say on Twitter at 11:45 PM EST that the update would be delayed due to issues with maintenance. Plus Morgan posted on the Playstation site about the delay. ”

What’s the Playstation site? He didn’t post anything here on the blog. This should be the main place they post things like that. We shouldn’t have to check a dozen sites to see what’s going on.

Skyyplum said:

April 16th, 11:35 pm You won’t see Morgans topic in the forums but if you go to forums and check the store update topic on page 5 there is a link to it.

Skyyplum said:

April 16th, 11:43 pm

Also you can follow Morgan on Twitter. He last gave an update 2 hours ago but really no news came from it sadly.

Michasalohcin said:

April 16th, 11:59 pm

When Is the store scheduled to update? I just checked it a few minutes ago and it still is hasn’t. Any Info?

Michasalohcin said:

April 17th, 12:01 am

Ah nevermind. I just read some of the previous post.

The_Wheelman_IV said:

April 17th, 12:50 am

Morgan can yall please add Dark Cloud 2 to the list of freebies. I really want to get this game! It’s a classic. I’m really upset that it’s not been added yet. You would think a game that got a high rating as it did would be available on PSN but no not in America anyways. Please add Dark Cloud 2 and I’ll be happy ;) I’m sure alot of gamers in here will be happy. Please take into account my suggestion thanks.


The_Wheelman_IV said:

April 17th, 12:52 am

I have no real complaint other than the fact the update is coming way late this week cause of Maintainence.

nevillebooglie said:

April 17th, 1:16 am

Any news on the May Update ? UK are getting Hitman which is amazing ! please get us the same game !!

klassymike said:

April 17th, 1:20 am

It’s now Wednesday, going on 4:20 here on the east coast, still no update. I guess they gave up and went home. Maybe later today they will attempt it again……

jellis2851 said:

April 17th, 1:32 am

Do any of these grand theft auto games that are playable on the vita have trophy support?

EPICNAME420 said:

April 17th, 1:42 am

ps plus was late this week..,it is 4/17 and no update!!!!!!

klassymike said:

April 17th, 1:55 am

@ jellis2851,
If they are PSP games, then I’m guessing no trophy support.
