PSN Store Update: 25/04/12

Hey, do you want to Skype me so we can talk about this store update? No? Well, okay then, here’s your usual boring old introduction and list.

[drop2]The more perceptive among you will probably have noticed that my brief mentioning of Skype has to do with the fact that it will arrive with today’s Store update for the PS Vita. Soon you’ll be able to video chat with each other via that dodgy Vita camera. The Bluetooth capabilities of the Vita mean that your PlayStation 3 headsets should work on it though (I’ve tested a few myself) so Skype is a very welcome addition.

– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

Also on the Store today, the first episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. This zombie adventure is looking very good so should be worth your time.

We’re also getting a demo for MUD FIM World Motocross on the PS3. You can hear what Dan thought of that in his preview here. Although this is not listed in the full list below, it was promised in a post this morning on the EU PS Blog. Whether or not it actually makes an appearance is anyone’s guess.

Here’s the full list:

  1. Going to grab the Dragons Dogma demo and then the Walking Dead trial, will see how it is.

  2. Yey no Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for us in Scandinavian…

    • From the FAQ on the blog:
      “1. Why are Disgaea and Hyperdimension DLC not available in Scandinavian territories?
      A. This was sadly a decision the publisher has made. At this time it doesn’t seem likely DLC will be available in the region.”
      Seems very odd.

    • I ordered my copy off amazon.co.uk, it’s probably cheaper there too.

    • Just order it outside Scandinavian countries if you can? Its stupid in the first place, should be in the likes of Finland or Sweden.

  3. Hope people planning to pick up the FIFA UEFA DLC are aware that almost half the teams in it are unlicensed with made up players, there is no qualifying and the over-whelming number of 360 users who purchased it yesterday wish they hadn’t or at least have known of its short-comings.

    Bejeweled is a bit pricey for my liking at £11.99
    Quite interested in Everybody’s Golf World Tour for PS Move, but at £24 I need to see some reviews first.

    • WOW, totally unaware of that regarding FIFA. Thanks for the heads-up…might hold fire for now.

      • Does it really matter?

      • Nickboss, yes it totally matters to me. If I wasn’t bothered about licensing I might even play pro EVO. See my point below.

      • Well, considering FIFA 12 cost me £40, £16 for (basically a pre-set tournament) is starting to seem like bad value when its been stripped of qualifying and fully licenced teams. I was all for the DLC instead of a seperate release, but if it keeps getting stripped back then I’m less inclined to buy it. After all, I can just make a custom tournament. Similarly to your question, do the Euro logos really matter?

        Plus I can use the £16 to but the other things I’ve mentioned look good on today’s store.

      • re pes licensing/strips. You can dload all official strips launch week off the net.
        (Only FC3 trailer for me.)

      • It’s not even about the euro competition for me, it was all about expedition mode which is a large gameplay mode that I really like the sound of.

        As for pes licenses I’m aware you can download them but I don’t want to.

      • Wow, that’s surprising, surely the players are already liscensed in their club guises in the main game? Not surprised FIFA have kept this a little quiet.

    • Well cc, its gone from a definite to a no thanks.

      Thanks for the heads up.

      If anyone gets more info on this please let me know.

      • I knew about lack of qualifying but that doesn’t bother me. Expedition mode is why I wanted it but if you can’t even get some of the key players its a bit of a killer.

      • Oh you can get ’em. They’ll just be called somthing else! :D

      • R Briggs. Gotta love Kick-Off 3.

      • Thats EA for you.

      • Actually it’s usually not – They usually spend the money & time making sure they have all the official stuff (names, kits, endorsements etc), but they seemed to deem that stuff not important for this for some reason. Bizarre.

        Almost feels like a rush job tbh.

    • EBG:WT is over priced … it was released on the US store for $25. Also, it still has no trophy support, if that makes any difference.

      • Well, call me a Trophy Whore but it does make a difference. Everybody’s Golf: World Tour is a great game – my favourite golf game – but surely the two options here were either give the game proper trophy support (and backdate it to the original disc release via an update) or create a new version of EG and give that full trophy support, not this overpriced, half-arsed middle gorund.

      • It got 10 trophies.

      • Where did you see that Kivi? I can’t find any mention of trophies anywhere.

      • Pretty sure there are no trophies on World Tour. The Vita version does do trophies and it the better game.

      • Ignore my post.. Don’t know how I read it but I thought you wrote the Euro DLC for Fifa 12 :P.

    • Stick with Everybody’s Golf on Vita CC. PS3 was fun, a great game and Move works reasonably, but no need now the Vita version exists.

      • @Kivi95 just so you know those 10 trophies are actually for a game called everybody’s putter golf which is only available in japan

      • Hell yeah it’s fun. Really enjoying it and it does get pretty challenging too

  4. So tempted to pick up The Walking Dead as I’m up-to-date with comic books, so I could do with some more Walking Dead.

  5. SO much stuff, LBP2 DLC sounds great, FIFA DLC, Skype, MotorStorm RC DLC, The Walking Dead and even some decent avatars (potentially) for a change! My e-wallet hurts already.

  6. hustle kings crazy table pack and skype for me although i dont have anyone to skype cos thats what mobile phones are for.

  7. Maybe a Sonic avatar.. That’s about it. I don’t see myself spending much store money, what with all the free shizz PS+ is bringing us!

    • Oh forgot about all does games!! Don’t think I will buy anything today.

  8. I was expecting the Doctor Who game, it’s release date is April 2012 and this will be the last update for April. I haven’t heard about it being postponed?

    • Same. I am a sad panda.

    • It was supposed to be released in March, so don’t hold your breath I suppose. No doubt it will be advertised as ‘May’ soon, when ‘TBA’ seems a little more appropriate.

      I was hoping for the Pinball Arcade stuff, which just came out in the US. No clue when we get it.

      All a bit uncertain this stuff isn’t it?!

    • Probably a ‘localisation issue’. That’s what it usually is! :p

  9. Nothing particularly inspiring for me personally, but will certainly get the videos of Far Cry 3 and Kara. Hmmm HD goodness….

  10. Big sale going on with God of War, I wonder why!

    • LOL … although I am seriously tempted to buy the second collection.
