For some reason it still said Ubisoft sale when I went into the store, I guess it still needs to be pulled because the sale prices were…nonexistent.

    Sometimes the banners refresh a little bit later than the prices. We’re working on a solution to make sure this isn’t a problem in the future.

April 8th, 2:07 pm

Can you please explain what is going on with Final Fantasy 14!! I want to get this for the PS4 but just want to buy it on PSN, now it shows up as free to download. Does this mean I don’t need to buy it or do I need to actually buy it from a 3rd party retailer?? Also, under price changes it shows as dropping from 39.99 to 24.99 but doesn’t state what platform. Someone please clarify this a bit, thanks!!

    Kristine Steimer said:

    April 8th, 2:52 pm

    My understanding with FF14 is that you can download it for free on PS4 but you still have to pay their monthly subscription fee. The price changes in this document reflect price drops on the PS3 versions. Hope that helps!

    Kristine Steimer said:

    April 8th, 3:07 pm

    Got a bit more clarification from the store team, it seems like this download for PS4 is just the client, so you will need an account for the game to be able to play.

Really? Tales content in Ragnarok Odyssey, but no Tales PSN Avatars yet? I feel like I’m being taunted now… :(

Persona 4 PS2 Classic on PS3. Biggest megaton of the year as far as I’m concerned.

Thank you based Atlus for delivering.

Does this mean I can install FF14 on my PS4 today and transfer my character over? I thought that wasn’t until friday.

T40Rs731N said:

April 8th, 2:10 pm

Does anyone know if Final Fantasy XIV can have multiple users? For instance, can I buy it and subscribe and have my own game whilst my sub accounts have their own games?

How will that work?

iREVOLTER said:

April 8th, 2:10 pm

Amazing to see Child of Light and Persona 4, wait Free to Download ? What does it mean? Basically on PS4 FF XIV is free and just a monthly subscription ? Thats cool if so. And after all it means US are going to pay double times for Child of Light, well too bad; I hoped for a Cross-Buy for US due to EU getting this as a Cross-Buy.

Strange to see such a random Sonic game to go digital after all the Demos were pulled of by Sega due to low metacritic score, even though I liked some of the levels overall not the best in the series.

I’m glad about TWAU E3. Thx Telltale and Playstation.

leracos said:

April 8th, 2:11 pm

Wow, Strike Suit Zero for discount on Plus? AWESOME.

mtk93 said:

April 8th, 2:11 pm

Earlier posts said King Oddball was cross-buy with the Vita. I went to download for my PS4, as I purchased the Vita version when it came out, and it wanted to charge me $6.99. Has this changed?

    Grace Chen's Avatar

    Kristine Steimer said:

    April 8th, 3:27 pm

    The game is still cross-buy! There appears to be an issue if you purchased the Vita version first, but the team is working on a fix now. Thanks for making us aware! You should be able to download both versions soon.

rightontargt4 said:

April 8th, 2:11 pm

Hey SCEA team,

Have you guys heard anything about the Fort Defense: North Menace addon/separate game coming back? Any news on the below would be appreciated.

The way it was outlined in the Fort Defense base game made it seem like it was add-on DLC, but when it went into the PS Store about a month ago, it released as a standalone, but only functional as a standalone demo/trial. It was then removed from the Store and I assume it’s being reworked to function correctly as a full game.

All I know is I paid $4 for it and since it’s not on the Store, it’s not in my download history and is unable to be used.

Thanks in advance!

Sennyize said:

April 8th, 2:12 pm

Any news on Playstation Now?
I heard from a CSR that with Playstation Now that the PS3 may be able to play PS Vita games and even PS4 game (Though she said that particular feature is not guaranteed). Also With PS4/PS3 on Vita.
I’d love to be able to play PS Vita games on my PS3 and I’d be much more willing to go more digital if it’d mean I’d have a nice catalog of games to play once I get a PS4.

tylerh1701 said:

Is Child of Light going to be cross-buy like it is for Europe?

XeahuleXolic said:

Thank you sony!!

Kanashimi said:

April 8th, 2:13 pm

Alright, I’m confused. The beta for Final Fantasy XIV was over the weekend, and from what I understand early access isn’t until the 11th, correct? I need to transfer from PS3 to PS4, but when can I do that on the Mog Station?

Sharingan_itachi said:

April 8th, 2:14 pm

3 weeks and counting. Still dont see the dlc of Soul Sacrifice that eu got.

Elk_mistral said:

April 8th, 2:15 pm

I rarely complaint but this week… that almost an april fool.. realy weak sale

Lefoul-123 said:

April 8th, 2:15 pm

Well well, if it isnt mr I never publish sales grace chen.

ngreatshark said:

April 8th, 2:15 pm

Seriously, if you haven’t played Persona 4 , get it, it will be the best $10 you’ve ever spent

rabidninjamonky said:

April 8th, 2:15 pm

I hope Child of Light gets a vita port. This is a pretty slow week, but I’m not complaining. I will beat FFX tonight and then I get to play FFX-2 next! I also can’t resist buying Flying Hamster for $0.49 for when I need a break from Spira.

nunley33 said:

April 8th, 2:16 pm

Happy to see Final Fantasy XIV getting a price drop as they’ll make it back in more subs. Everyone witha PS4 should download it and try it out,during the recent beta period anyways. I’ll try stealth inc. and grab the spider-man theme. With the sales looking light it feels like a flash sale is impending for the weekend.

hazelcabug said:

April 8th, 2:17 pm

Looks like PS PLUS been having a very weak PS PLUS EXCLUSIVE sales this past month…. All I’ve seen frequently are price change which even a non ps plus subscriber can avail.

Please reshuffle the games that got sale for 75% off for ps plus subscribers last year, not all ps plus subscriber are able to purchase great sales long ago such as Nino Kuni for 7$ etc.

Elvick_ said:

April 8th, 2:19 pm

App update is really nice feature. Thanks for those.

Flying Hamster HD and Sunflowers for $1 is a great deal people. Get them, they’re a lot of fun.

@28: I second this. I loved the first and would like that to be fixed, and support is terrible so I was hoping that it’d fix itself quickly.

Pattino said:

April 8th, 2:19 pm

How exactly is FFXIV going to work? I know there is a subscription fee, but don’t we also have to buy the game? Stores have the disc based version it for $40, but doesn’t seem like we can pre-order a digital copy anywhere. I am hoping to purchase it through PSN since I have psn cards and would like to be able to participate in the pre-order early release. Thanks for any help you can offer.

elscarface said:

April 8th, 2:22 pm

FFXIV Free!? So I just need to pay the monthly subscription?

    Kristine Steimer said:

    I’ve been told you can download the client for free. You will still need an account.

I’m pretty sure Obscure 2 has been on the store for a while. It was on sale last week for 5 bucks.

snakeeyes211 said:

When are we getting HBO go for the PS4?

Gaara436 said:

April 8th, 2:27 pm

@17 free to download only but you need to buy game at mog station square enix online server or at retailer. After bought the game enter one time use code to unlock game. If you buy ps3 which is cheaper when up load game on ps4 there is a button to transfer rights from ps3 to unlock full game on ps4 for free. So buy ps3 $24.99 vs paying $39.99 or buy ps3 collectors $444.99 instead of ps4 collectors at digital 59.99 or retail 84.99

Gaara436 said:

April 8th, 2:28 pm

Still requires monthly fee though

SalMoriarty said:

April 8th, 2:32 pm

RBI Baseball still due to release tomorrow?

Gaara436 said:

April 8th, 2:33 pm

@21 no you still need to wait april 11 to do so. Just get a leg up sort of speak in doing so. By download game.. it’s the same version as beta phase 2 my understanding

boomstickbhg said:

April 8th, 2:34 pm

Please remove the App Updates section, it should have it’s own separate post since it’s just about tv shows and such being watchable, through apps that already have been released, and nothing to do with the store update.

Right now it’s just a bunch of unwanted information in a post about something else and on a big update it makes it that much more tiring, annoying to check out what’s new.
