PSN Store Still Not Updated, "Double Dragon" Locked As A Demo

Users far from happy with SCEE.


The PSN Store. Not having a great time in Europe of late, with missing games, lack of communication and non-working downloads.
The PlayStation Store has still not been updated in Europe.

However if you use the search function then you can access this week’s content – although be warned it sounds like there are some startling issues with doing so.

Anyone purchasing LittleBigPlanet PS Vita might find themselves unable to play it, and some people are saying they’ve been charged for attempted re-downloads.

And the new Double Dragon game appears to be locked in demo mode.

However, by searching, I have found Jet Set Radio, Damage Inc and £57.99′s worth of SSX so it looks like it’s just the ‘New this week’ page that has not been updated, although this does seem like a catalogue of errors. Again.

Rather oddly, one item has been updated on the ‘This Week’ page as the latest Access video, number 49, can be downloaded.

Hopefully Sony will sort things out quickly, and refund those who have made purchases for games that simply don’t work. According to some users, Sony Australia aren’t issuing refunds.

Sony have this morning let us know that the version of LBP Vita on the Store should now work properly, although you’ll need to download.

    Appauling stuff really, its not like these things are one offs, there are multiple issues week in week out, and no one from SCEE has the balls to explain what the issues are.

    One thing I know for certain is that next gen cant come quick enough for me now, and after almost a decade of being a loyal Sony customer I am afraid that i will be jumping ship, most probably to the the next box, or the rumoured valve system if that comes.

    Sony, your exclusives are not enough to keep me with you anymore, you dropped the ball big time and it is going to cost you dearly, I am sure I am not the only person with this opinion either.

        You could have created a US account and bought CS from the SCEA store as a last resort.
        Although as you hint at there does seem to be a regular non-work ethic of apathy these days where the EU store is concerned.

    No refunds for a product that doesn’t work? Sounds like small claims court might be busy this week.

        Don’t give them ideas! The last thing we need is for them to start messing around with splicing and genetics. Imagine what monsters they could unleash on us.*screams in horror then runs away in horror*

    Congratulations to see on ruining the launch of the most warmly received Vita game yet.
    Little Big Planet’s store rating now sits at just 2 stars and falling…
